Property description

Our beautiful and very private guest house is perfect for your vacation in the Monterey/Carmel/Carmel Valley area. Close to many quality restaurants, shops, and wine tasting in Carmel Valley, and only 15 minutes from Carmel-by-the-Sea! The cottage is approximately 470 sq. ft. with a fireplace, queen-sized bed, a kitchenette, nice-sized bathroom with shower, and it's own private entrance and front deck. It is perfect for 2 adults, but can sleep one additional person with the use of a twin-sized futon. Because the space is small, this arrangement is best reserved for a family with one child. (PLEASE INFORM OWNER!). It is set among the oaks in our beautiful garden with fountain, and is decorated with a soothing 'Island' theme using pale green colors. There is plenty of off-street parking and we are very easy to find. Upon your arrival, you will be greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine and a fresh fruit bowl for your enjoyment. We also have free internet access, cable television, and nation-wide FREE calling on a private land line. We have assembled a binder with menus and maps to help you in your selection of the many great restaurants, shops, and wine tasting rooms nearby. The weather in Carmel Valley is most always sunny and considerably warmer than Carmel-by-the-Sea. We are always accessible to answer any questions or to assist with any directions you may need. Our goal is to make your stay with us a memorable occasion and more pleasant and relaxing than you ever expected. Aloha!

Keywords: Private, separate, cottage, 1 bedroom, studio, with kitchen, sleeps 1-3 persons. If more than 2 persons, an additional fee of $25 per night applies.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My husband and I are long-time Carmel Valley residents. I am a retired designer and my husband works for a major building supply company. We are happy 'empty nesters' living with our two cats T-bone and Minnie.

Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley:
This is actually our residential property that has a separate guesthouse. It is in a quiet, up-scale, and eclectic neighborhood with semi-large parcels.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It's such a great location. In the sun and away from the tourist traffic, yet a short drive to almost any activity you desire.
