Property description

Whimsical and cozy. This 1920's cottage will take you back to the Carmel of years past. A small cottage tucked away in a quiet, private setting, yet only a short walk to town and the beach. Spend the day exploring Big Sur, Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula. Walk the mission trail to the historic Carmel mission. After a fun filled day, return to your peaceful cottage and enjoy a relaxing glass of wine, or just relaxing on the patio while you listen to the crashing waves off in the distance. Walk to town and take your pick of a vast array of wonderful restaurant choices. Return to the cottage to enjoy a restful sleep on the very comfy bed where you will feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. Experience Carmel as if you lived here.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We live in California about two hours away from Carmel. We have been visiting Carmel for years and we finally had the opportunity to buy our little home away from home! We visit every chance that we can get away from our busy schedule of work and our youngest daughter's activities.

Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea:
We think that Carmel is one of the best places in the world. It is truly magical. It is beautiful, relaxing, fun, a food mecca, and historic. You can stay here and feel that you are away from it all but yet have many of the comfots of home.
