Carmel By the Sea cottage description

Nestled into a beautiful forest setting overlooking Hatton Canyon, you will find our rustic guest cottage perfect for your Carmel getaway. Moonglow is a unique oasis for those that enjoy the tranquility of the forest, yet want to be minutes away from Carmel’s beautiful white sand beach and many artistic shops and restaurants.

A gorgeous deck surrounds the cottage with plenty of seating, a barbecue for outdoor enjoyment and a heater for cool evenings. The patio has a table and 4 chairs for outdoor dining. Steps lead to the upper deck where a wonderful private outdoor hot tub awaits for special evenings under the stars.

For the active traveler Moonglow offers equipment for hiking, biking, kayaking, tennis, golf and the beach. Walk or bike out the door to unspoiled Hatton canyon.

The beautiful bedroom has a double bed with a great mattress. If you need a queen or king, Moonglow may not be the best choice for you.

Moonglow has a bathroom with lovely tile shower, kitchenette and living room with a welcoming corner fireplace. There is also a trundle bed in the living room (converts to two twins) plus a bistro table with 2 chairs, a dresser with drawers, and a chair with footstool.

The HDTV and Blu-ray player stream Netflix and other Apps seamlessly via the fast Comcast Wi-Fi.

Moonglow is attached to our garage overlooking the canyon on our forested half acre lot and shares only the driveway with the main house.

Complimentary passes to the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium are included.

Moonglow is smoke free. No pets, please.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: Our romance began in 1961 when Diane came to Carmel to be a 4th grade teacher at Carmel River School. She met Chuck who had just left the Navy's Blue Angels and was enrolled in the Naval Postgraduate School. In 1964 we were married and began a life together. Through the years, as a Navy family, we lived many places, but always returned to Carmel to visit our old friends and to bask in the beauty of the area. Of course, we always wished we had bought a place when we first lived here, and never really thought we would ever live in Carmel

                  Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea:
                  In 2004 we fell in love with Sundance, a rustic and secluded home on a half acre overlooking Hatton Canyon. We immediately bought it, sold our home in Del Mar, and became Carmelites. We love it here and have never looked back. Our family and friends enjoyed staying in the guest cottage, and after our son built a magnificent deck around it we christened it 'Moonglow' and decided to offer it as a vacation rental. As you can see from the guestbook, it has been very popular.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Moonglow is close to everything in Carmel, the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel Valley and Big Sur, yet secluded and quiet.
