Carmel Valley cottage description

Located on a 2.7 acre, gated property in mid-Carmel Valley, our casita is a gracious guesthouse and a private adult retreat. Completely renovated in 2010, the casita is nestled among old oaks and expansive gardens with gorgeous views of Carmel Valley hills and Palisades overlooking Carmel River.

The casita, furnished with Arts & Crafts style furniture, original art, and oriental rugs, offers a spacious, light-filled setting. Decorated in warm earth tones, the entire space is welcoming and intimate. A fully equipped modern kitchen - and an outdoor grill - provide all you need to cook at home while enjoying the spectacular views from the deck. Views can also be enjoyed from the privacy of the king bedroom. The bathroom features slate tiled double sink counter and large shower. Additional amenities include a 36” flat screen cable TV, Wi-Fi, high end audio/video system, laundry, fully equipped modern kitchen, queen size sleeper sofa, generous closets and drawer space.

From this private retreat, you will have easy access to fabulous wine tasting, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Point Lobos State Park, Garland Regional Park, beautiful walking/hiking trails, world class golf courses, Carmel Beach and the quaint town of Carmel-by-the-Sea. A close-up, spectacular view of the Carmel Valley Palisades invites you to explore this unique property, located on the only mesa in Carmel Valley. Enjoy with a complimentary bottle of wine, provided upon your arrival, and including fresh coffee and flowers. The refrigerator will be stocked at your request.

The world renowned Big Sur coast is only a half hour away. Events to enjoy include the AT&T Golf Tournament, Monterey Blues Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, Carmel Bach Festival, the Concours d'Elegance, and numerous special events.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1994

              About the owner: We have been residents of Carmel Valley for 25 years and can't imagine living anywhere else. We love it here! The beauty, tranquility and the people make it a paradise for us. We are both artists, a painter and a sculptor, and our studio is on our property. Our gorgeous views from the only mesa in Carmel Valley make our property one of the most unique in the valley. Bixby, our wonderful standard poodle, shares our property and loves to hike with us in the many parks in our area. He is also a therapy dog and visits patients at our local hospital. Come and share the bounty of life in the Carmel Valley / Carmel area.

              Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley:
              It is beautiful here! Our location is in the sun belt of Carmel Valley – beyond the coastal fog most of the time. It’s a short drive to shopping, services, dining and entertainment plus unlimited outdoor sports and recreation. The local airport is 20 minutes away.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              This unique property is truly a private, tranquil adult retreat. A garden of native plants, a meadow and dozens of old oak trees surround Frank Lloyd Wright style architecture on a mesa that overlooks the Carmel River. Expansive views of rock outcroppings and the hills beyond offer a backdrop for endless bird activity. Our location is the best of both worlds.....equi-distant from shopping in the town of Carmel and wine tasting in Carmel Valley Village. Here is an ideal setting for a peaceful, relaxing stay while experiencing all the Monterey Peninsula has to offer.
