Property description

If you are looking for a quiet place to rest your bones & recharge your batteries...this is the place. It is a 700 sq ft cottage on 13,000 square feet of land with beautiful views of the surrounding Monterey Pines and Oaks.

The cottage has all the ''creature comforts'' of your own home including a complete fully equipped kitchen....but if cooking is not on the agenda for the day, no need to start the car just enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at the 5 star restaurants of the Highlands Inn. It is just a quick 2 minute walk away.

If staying in is your style, you can BBQ & watch your favorite TV/sports program on the 42' HD flat screen TV or sit on the front patio w/ your beverage of choice & enjoy a partial view of the ocean & the south side of famous Point Lobos State Park...or you can take a short peaceful walk to catch the beauty of the crashing waves on the coast at sunset....whatever you choose to do...you will be glad you stayed at the Cottage by the Sea to relax & enjoy.


What Is Great About Us!: What is is that they say that makes something great???? Location, Location, Location....and we have just that! Our home offers the quiet and the serenity with the views, the vistas, the crashing waves and the majesty of the pines and oaks. Our little cottage's location is seemingly so far away for the peace and relaxation we all seek...yet so close at hand for excellent dining and shopping in Carmel by the Sea, hiking at Point Lobos State Park, driving 17 mile at Pebble Beach, listening and watching the 'lone bagpiper' come down the fairway at Spanish Bay at sunset, visiting Monterey's Ocean Aquarium and wharf, dining at the Highlands Inn (HI) 5-star restaurants and/or listening to jazz/light entertainment in the HI Great Room while enjoying the beauty of the Monterey Coastline...a little piece of paradise located perfectly to suit all your needs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Jann and I (Scott) bought this place in April of 2009 and completely remodeled the property with the idea of reselling it...but the more time we spent on the property working the more we fell in love with the beauty and peacefulness it provided. We changed our minds (thank goodness!) and realized that this was a 'little jewel' that we could not let go...so we share it with you and hope you find the same feeling of joy and tranquility that we have come to know and enjoy during our (and your) stays here.

Why the Owner Chose Carmel Highlands:
We have visited the Carmel area and the Highlands Inn for years and always wanted to be able to live in the area...we were fortunate to come across this home in 2009 and turn it into a great getaway for us (and now or you) and a permanent place for us to land in the future. We loved the idea of being so close at hand for all the 'cultural things' we enjoy and yet felt when we turned into our driveway we were definitely away from it all.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
What is is that they say that makes something great???? Location, Location, Location....and we have just that! Our home offers the quiet and the serenity with the views, the vistas, the crashing waves and the majesty of the pines and oaks. Our little cottage's location is seemingly so far away for the peace and relaxation we all seek...yet so close at hand for excellent dining and shopping in Carmel by the Sea, hiking at Point Lobos State Park, touring 17 Mile Drive at Pebble Beach, or visiting Spanish Bay at sunset for a special treat??!??, visiting Monterey's Ocean Aquarium and Wharf, dining at the Highlands Inn (HI) 5-star restaurants and/or listening to jazz/light entertainment in the HI Great Room while enjoying the beauty of the Monterey Coastline...a little piece of paradise located perfectly to suit all your needs.
