About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Please contact owner for rates and minimum stay. This cottage was rated the Top Vacation Rental in Monterey in 2012 , and includes two guest passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The charming and chic cottage in the heart of Monterey, CA was newly renovated in December of 2009. No cost was spared in creating a lovely home with fireplace, French Door views in the front to a terraced garden and the back to a peek of the Pacific, hardwood floors, new bath.

A kitchen with stainless steel appliances and marble counter tops merge with a cozy breakfast nook. Awaken each morning to a light-filled bedroom. A Sun Room incorporates an elevated single bed, surrounded in glass, for an occasional guest or child. Hardwood floors throughout.

Beautiful park and tennis courts directly across street. Only a dozen blocks away you’ll find the Monterey Bay Aquarium, acclaimed restaurants and entertainment, and one of the most gorgeous coastlines in the world.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My husband and I love the incredible beauty of the Monterey area, including Point Lobos, Big Sur, and Carmel. We appreciate the wide array of cultural/athletic opportunities, from the Pebble Beach Automobile Concourse, to the Monterey Jazz Festival, to the Pebble Beach Pro Am Golf Meet. The restaurants are the finest anywhere and art galleries abound.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
1. After settling in at the Little Jewel Box, and you are ready to venture out, we recommend a day-trip into the spellbinding beauty of Big Sur. On the way stop at Pfeiffer Beach to commune with the ocean. While in Big Sur visit Nepenthe for the shopping experience of your life -- gifts from East and West and all parts between, a remarkable array of art and craft. And while you are there walk upstairs to their outdoor cafe and enjoy a cup of coffee and an amazing spectacle of beauty. Down Hwy 1 be sure to stop for breakfast at Deetjins Big Sur Inn -- try their Eggs Benedict. Continue southward to Julie Pfeiffer State Park and amazing hiking opportunities in the breathtaking beauty only Big Sur offers. Stop by the Ventana, on your right leaving Big Sur, for a sumptuous late afternoon lunch on their outside veranda. 2. On another day, just 15 minutes South of the Little Jewel Box, visit what many consider the most beautiful natural preserve in the world, Point Lobos. Plan to spend the morning and pack a picnic lunch. After your visit go a bit further South to the Highlands Inn (Hyatt Hotel), on your left, making a beeline for the Sunset Lounge. Enjoy a late afternoon Martini, taking in the beauty of Point Lobos from yet a different, high elevation perspective. You will never forget the moment. 3. And of course just a dozen blocks away from the Little Jewel Box, you will find the amazing Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Cannery area, which includes incredible dining opportunities, the beautiful wharf, music, and clubs. If in a more pensive mood, stroll along the ocean walkway toward Pacific Grove, letting in the incredible splendor of the Pacific careening against the rugged coast line. Just a dozen blocks South is the cozy French Restaurant, Fi-Fi’s, one of our favorites -- try the Beef Bourguignon and one of their over-the-top desserts.
