Carmel By the Sea cottage description

Featured in Los Angeles Times Travel Section. Fall in love with Quail's Nest. This cozy 1 bedroom, 1 bath cottage is nestled in a locale, where all is within walking distance. Stroll 3 blocks to Carmel River Beach and watch the aqua tinted waves rip through the air and crash right in front of you, or maybe you prefer to sink your feet into the white sands of popular Carmel Beach. Take a healthy stride of just over half a mile to the village, which is sprinkled with many unique shops, restaurants to satisfy every palette, and let the art galleries draw you in, or admire the antiquities staged in the windows.

A brisk 2 block saunter can lead you to Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch. Get acquainted with the distinctive homes of Carmel by the Sea, while cycling up and down the streets, bicycles are provided at your disposal. These activities can bring on an appetite, so step into the remodeled kitchen and prepare a light snack or a feast, this kitchen is sure to handle whatever you bring.

It is occupied by new stainless steel appliances and maple cabinets. If you feel like just hanging out at the cottage, you are welcome to soak in a hot bubbly bath. New remodeled bath with travertine tiles. The bedroom is romantic with large king size bed, carpet and ceiling fan. The interior of this cottage is very inviting, decorated with French and Belgium antique furnishings, comfy leather library
chairs that add a homey feel, calming colors and print blend on the walls, and black and white photographs hang framed and hint of early Carmel.

Perhaps you would like to relax and lay in the hammock for an afternoon nap or just lounge and listen to birds perform a
musical tune, complimented by the light breezes whispering in your ear. The backyard is a serene atmosphere that is perfect for reading a good book under the Monterey Cypress trees that filer the sun’s ray. Weather a bit bitter. It may call for the fireplace to
be livened and spark some romance, or how about just spoiling in front of its warmth.

Don't forget to get in touch with nature by visiting Point Lobos, choose from several hikes and spot a deer with its fawn feeding on the lush greens, a red tailed hawk soaring above, or capture a quick glimpse of bob cat pouncing in play. Come visit the positive energy of Quail's Nest and invigorate your senses...you won't want to leave!

                    We spend a week at Quail's Nest last December. The location could not have been better: within walking distance to 2 beaches, Carmel Village and Carmel Mission; within easy access to grocery stores, gas stations and Hwy 1 for day trips to Big Sur and Monterey Bay. The cottage is adorable. The kitchen was fully equipped and stocked with coffee and other basics. The bed had a plush duvet, plenty of pillows and extra blankets. If you enjoy wildlife there is a blue scrub jay who visits the backyard and is fond of peanuts. We liked to sit on the sunny back patio with our morning coffee and hang out with the blue jay. We could not have asked for a lovelier place to spend our first visit to Carmel. The natural beauty of the area is almost magical and the house was a perfect base for exploring and a comfortable place to return to afterwards. Will definitely recommend to others!

                    Best location in beautiful Carmel--walking distance to downtown, Mission Ranch, Carmel Mission, beach, etc. House is well appointed and very comfortable with all the amenities as promised--just like at home. For Carmel, a generous back yard for relaxing. No disappointments with this place! We would return with regularity.

                    We spent a week at Quail's Nest and enjoyed it thoroughly. We go to Carmel area for golf, dining, and walking. The area around the cottage was a wonderful place to walk - lots of ways to/from the beach and coast areas. We were blessed with great weather the week we were there, so we would sit on the patio relaxing and feeding the blue jays. My husband really got into feeding the jays from his hand! The cottage itself is a great place to relax - quiet and lots of options on sitting (to knit, work on computer, or watch TV). As others have said, everything you could want or need was provided. Erik checked in with us to make sure everything was OK - a really nice gesture. Since our goal was golfing at many different courses from Monterey to Carmel Valley, it was actually very easy to get where we wanted from the cottage (we play early and try to avoid the worst of any traffic). Returning to Quail's Nest after golf really felt like we were 'coming home'. We would definitely return and stay at Quail's Nest.

                    My wife and I spend almost two weeks in July and early August at Quails Nest. We found the place meet all our needs and had a great escape from the Florida heat. The location was convenient to the beach and downtown Carmel. We walked to almost everywhere we went and left in better shape than when we arrived. The house was clean, comfortable and well equipped. We really liked the bluebirds.

                    My husband and I stayed at the Quail's Nest for a week in June, this was our second time staying here. The location is perfect - just a short walk to the beach and to downtown Carmel. The house is very comfortable and Erik has thought of everything to make your stay perfect; bbq, comfortable bed, washer/dryer - there was nothing lacking. We absolutely loved it and will be back!

                    The Quail's Nest has been our Carmel retreat many times during the past 4 years. My husband and I have rented the Nest a month at time and it feels just like home! We love the charming feel of the Nest, the fully stocked kitchen with great appliances, the incredibly comfortable kingsize bed, the inviting and private backyard, and the front balcony where we sit enjoy in the view of Carmel Highlands. There is everything you need - just walk-in and start soaking in the peaceful feel of this home and spectacular Carmel by the Sea. We have always found it spotless with everything we need. I have spent time here on my own and feel completely comfortable and safe. I highly recommend it for a recharging and reflecting personal get-away too! The location is ideal. A short walk in any direction takes you to all Carmel has to offer. We love walking each morning to Carmel River Beach, in the evening we head west 3 blocks to watch the sunset on Scenic Drive. Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch is a five minute walk for lovely patio dinner. You can walk into downtown Carmel in 15 minutes and it's a great way to enjoy the quaint cottages, or the oceanfront walk - Scenic Drive. Other reviews mention 'magical' and they are spot on. We love this place! The owner, Erik, is terrific! He is accommodating, accessible, knowledgeable and lovely to work with. The photos and description are accurate.

                    This quaint home in the Carmel-by-the-Sea area is gorgeous and has every amenity you could imagine. The owner doesn't miss a beat and even has peanuts to feed very friendly blue birds. What a treat to stay and relax in such a beautiful environment! We took long walks with the most spectacular views on our coastline. The Carmel Mission is nearby and added to the spiritual nature of our trip. A quick drive will bring you to the 17 mile drive area and Cannery Row where the Monterey Aquarium is located. This is a spectacular part of CA and the drive from Southern CA is topped with a visit through Big Sur. A fantastic and romantic trip for any couple!

                    This is our second stay at the Quail's Nest and again we had a wonderful time. The home is clean, decorated with great care and the patio outside is quaint and pretty! There is a very large collection of cd's to listen to as well as movies to watch, although we were too busy seeing the sights to sit still long enough for a movie. Everything is furnished, all we brought was food to cook and wine to drink! We are already looking forward to our stay next year!

                    This was not my first time to the Quail's Nest and certainly won't be my last. The home is absolutely perfect and has everything you need. I love waking up in the mornings and opening the door to feed the blue jay and walking down to the beach for a long beautiful walk. The location is great and we ended up walking to dinner one night in the dark which was quite an adventure but there was a flashlight to help guide our way. The fireplace is so great to light on a cold night and the quietness that surrounds the Quail's Nest allows for a great deal of R & R. I can not say enough wonderful things about this enchanting and magical place.

                  About the owner: I love to travel and Carmel/Big Sur are my favorite places on earth

                  Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea:
                  I had looked for many years around the Carmel area and found the Carmel Point area the best spot. The area is mostly flat walking, with no big hills, Carmel Beach, Carmel Bird Sanctuary and Mission are a close walk away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The energy here is special. You are alone with your thoughts and it is a great spot to just think about life past/present/future. This is a healing, loving area. Wonderful vibe.
