My family and I have lived in the area since 2008. Purchasing, remodeling and restoring Moon Gate Cottage was a labor of love which took most of 2012 to complete and something we strive to maintain. We wanted it to look the way, we felt, it always should have.
Cheryl Assemi purchased this cottage in 2011
For us, it was love at first sight. Moon Gate and our other 4 listings (Log Haven 937413, Tradewinds 938557, Home Port 938549 and Sky Way 938553) reside on one property, collectively called the Carmel Cottage Inn. The cottages are full time vacation rentals with hotel status, which allows us to rent by the night. The gardens and patios are designed to give each cottage a feeling of privacy. The proximity of our cottages, patios and gardens to each other, as well as to the beach and downtown Carmel, make them equally ideal for a single cottage rental or for larger groups, family reunions, etc. To keep the houses fresh for longer visits, we arrange for periodic light housekeeping for stays of 3 nights or longer.
Built in the 1940's, Moon Gate Cottage is a charming little home away from home. With it's hand stenciled wood floors, the marbled, lighted 'Moon Gate', or sinking back into the couches at the end of an eventful day. We hope our guests will love Moon Gate Cottage as much as we do.
Really cute, quiet cottage. Short walk to the beach. We could hear the waves crashing during the night. Private little yard and off street parking.
Bed was extremely firm as were the pillows, but it was clean and mostly well appointed. There was an ironing board, but no iron, which I thought a little odd. Disappointed that an email prior to my stay and one after were completely ignored. If you need to reach the owner you might want to phone instead.
Location is great, and the cottage and property are gorgeous. We look forward to coming back sometime soon.
Moon Gate cottage was amazing and better than we expected. The location was perfect...close to the beach and close to town. The cottage was beautifully furnished and very private. The wonderful fire place was perfect for the cool mornings and evenings when the fog was "in". Cheryl has paid close attention to all the details right down to the welcome gift bag on the coffee table! We will definitely stay here on out next trip to Carmel.

My husband and I were visiting Carmel to attend a wedding so we decided to make our trip a mini vacation and found the perfect little cottage. Moon Gate Cottage was a pleasant surprise for us. It is the perfect size for a couple and it provided everything to make our visit very comfortable. The cottage is tastefully decorated, and the living room with the fireplace was very cozy and the perfect place to relax after a day of exploring in and around Carmel. We definitely will stay there again!
The cottage is beautifully appointed and suited the needs of me and my wife so well during our week in Carmel. It's incredibly cozy and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything one needs to cook a meal, if you so choose. The bed is very comfortable and the closet spaces are very large. The grounds upon which the cottage sits are beautiful, private and peaceful. It's an easy few-block walk to the town's shops, restaurants, and cafes as well, which we did daily. It's also an a couple-block walk to the beach and the coastal trail, which we also walked often. Cheryl was a wonderful host. Her communication throughout the booking, payment and check-in process was perfect. We were also glad to bump into her on our last day in Carmel and meet her. Thank you, Cheryl, for a wonderful experience.
We entered this private charming,spacious yet cozy cottage after walking past the manicured gorgeous landscaped gardens (think House and Garden magazine ) of abundant blooming hydrangeas and other fragrant flowers, and we were greeted by our charming hosts Cheryl Assemi and her helpful assistant Calvin .
We enjoyed 3 lovely nights at this darling quiet cottage a few minutes walk from the village with all the restaurants and shops,and just one short block from the beach. We enjoyed relaxing in the comfortably and beautifully furnished living room by the fireplace The nice size bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed and lovely bedding. No skimping here. The darling kitchen ,which has been updated, is reminiscent of how I remember my grandmother's ,and is neat clean and well equipped. Parking is easy in their designated parking a few steps to the cottage. You will love precious Moon Gate Cottage and like us, you will want to return .
