  • Delightful accommodation

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rose Cottage. It is an extremely well equipped and comfortable cottage and has clearly been a labour of love for Larry and Linda who were excellent hosts, always friendly and approachable but giving us plenty of privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed our chats with them. There was ample space for the two of us inside the lovely bright cottage and we also very much appreciated the patio table and chairs outside the front door where we enjoyed eating breakfast whilst watching the numerous birds in the garden. The outdoor fireplace and barbecue were well-used and conducive to wonderfully relaxed evenings. We would love to build one in our own garden if only the weather here was slightly less damp and cold! We enjoy hiking and there was no shortage of lovely scenic places to visit. We very much enjoyed Point Lobos, Andrew Molera State Park, Garrapata State Park, Point Sur (thoroughly recommend the lighthouse tour) and Garland Ranch. All were easily accessible from Rose Cottage. We also spent a great day at the Monterey aquarium (thank you Linda and Larry for the use of the passes) and travelled north to see more sea otters and sealions at Moss Landing and the coastal redwoods at Henry Cowell park. We could quite happily have sat in the garden at Rose Cottage and relaxed for the whole week but never having visited the area before, wanted to explore a fair bit. We couldn't have asked for a better base for our travels. Thank you!"

  • Beautiful and Secluded Cottage

    "This was almost perfect for our stay. Plenty of rooms and bathrooms for 7 adults, lots of spacious room outside. We were able to easily locate with the instructions provided and didn't have any issues. The home was clean, quiet and very well taken care of. The scenery was as advertised. It is a bit isolated, so be prepared for a trek to go back into town or for sight seeing. If you want to relax, this is the place."

  • Best Time!

    "Let's just say that before we arrived at Carmel Valley Retreat we had many plans. We planned to hike, drive to the ocean, shop...but we ended up staying at the house for the entire 5 days (aside from mandatory trips to a grocery store!). We just didn't want to leave this beautiful house. The pool is amazing and we spent a lot of our time swimming and/or hot tubbing. The house is cozy, the location is perfect (not too far away from civilization but still secluded and quiet neighborhood.) Lynda and Chuck are extremely nice and accommodating, and were available to answer questions despite the fact they were on vacation themselves. It definitely shows that they put a lot of love and effort into the house, and we will definitely be visiting again in the future! Thanks Lynda and Chuck, for a wonderful stay."

  • great home, great owner, great location for a big party!

    "Lynn rented her home out to us last minute for a group of 18 (yes 18 people) and the home was great! We were kind of skeptical once pulling up to the house at night but once inside we knew we made the right choice. The house has two levels and one of the beedrooms upstairs is HUGE!!! Lynn was great to deal with and the price is unbeatable! Thanks again for taking care of us and working with our big party!"
