Property description

Our charming Carmel-by-the-Sea beach cottage is available for rent during the ATT Pro Am, Concourse D'Elegance week, Historic Car Races, and for other special events throughout the year.

The house, completely updated in 2010, has been restored to its original 1925 beach house charm. Best of the best locations in Carmel: only 1 short block to the pristine white sands of Carmel beach, and just 6 walkable blocks to Carmel's great shopping and dining on Ocean Avenue.

This authentic, Murphy-designed cottage on a prime corner lot boasts original redwood walls, a large and comfortable living room with Bay windows, river rock fireplace with natural gas, beamed ceilings, flat screen TV with cable, and Apple TV. Internet supplied by Wi-Fi, and data cable. The secluded patio is surrounded by flowers with table, chairs, natural gas BBQ and outdoor lighting for easy entertaining. The private outdoor shower will refresh you after an afternoon on the beach. The large front deck has peak-a-boo ocean views. The three bedrooms, with walls finished in a lovely driftwood grey, can sleep a total of five: bedroom #1 has a California king bed; bedroom #2 has two XL twins; and bedroom #3 has a single twin. Brand new luxury mattresses, high thread-count bed linens, feather beds, down pillows and comforters complete the pampered feeling. The detached single car garage also has a washer and dryer.

There is no 'rental' furniture in this lovely home, because we know our guests will treat our family heritage pieces as if these were their own. We ask that our guests refrain from smoking anywhere on the property, leave their pets at home, and remove their shoes before entering. Minimum one week rental; Monday changeover day
