About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

World Class Renowned Carmel-by-the-sea is a peaceful coastal get away destination with rich offerings of art, theater, dining, shopping, spas, wineries, beach, golfing, and parks (17-miles drive, big-sur, point lobos, and more).

Ohana Cottage was remodeled in 2011 and offers luxuries living in a very convenient location. Our newly renovated single story home has 3 bed rooms (CA King in Master Room, 2 twins in Room 1, and a twin with trundle in Room 2), and 2 baths. The Living room includes a queen sofa sleeper but we still limit occupancy to 6 persons.

The bright Dining room has a big skylight and a floor- to-ceiling window/door to a private back yard, deck sitting, and BBQ.

The gourmet eat-in kitchen equipped with Stainless steel appliances: Side-by-side 36” refrigerator with filtered water dispenser and ice maker, 24” drawer microwave, food processor, coffee maker, toaster, Dish Washer, gas cook-top, oven, and warming drawer. Granite tops and beautifully tiled back splash.

The Living room is part of a large opening stretching through the Dining and Kitchen and to the foyer. Makes a nice flow through the living area yet each space is defined and functional. A large LED flat 3D TV and a 3D Blu-ray DVD with HD channels and 5.1 home theater system. The Living Room has two big windows and a fireplace.

The Master BR is overlooking the back yard and has another flat TV.

The house is equipped with a broadband internet access, phone, printer, fax, and scanner. Executives and professionals can enjoy vacation in Carmel and stay connected with the office and business.

The whole house has hardwood floor, centrally heated, well decorated, and furnished.

OHANA COTTAGE IS IDEALLY SITUATED –walk to beach and hit the white sandy beach in 2 minutes (only 1 block away); walk to down-town, the cross street from the property is the famous Ocean avenue—the down-town Carmel is only 5 minutes walk from the property. You can walk to restaurants, art galleries, bars, shopping, and Sunset Cultural Center; walk to Pebble-Beach golf course, only 6 minutes walk; Nestled close to the famous and most beautiful 17-mile drive. OHANA COTTAGE IS ALL ABOUT LOCATION AND COMFORT STAYING IN CARMEL-BY-THE-SEA.

When staying in Carmel, you can park your car once and leave your keys in the Cottage. Walk to the beach, shopping, wine tasting and fabulous restaurants all within a short walk. While dining in Carmel, you’ll find over 50 bistros, coffee shops and fine dining establishments whose menus feature a bounty of regional fare including produce from the local Salinas Valley (the top lettuce growing region in the world) and sustainable seafood from Monterey Bay.

There are no stoplights and very few street lights. Clear views of the stars overhead and the moon reflecting on the crashing waves are a welcome result of the absence of light pollution. Dim lighting, charming settings and glorious surroundings are quite romantic!

Carmel is a cultural “Mecca” – the home of the venerable Carmel Bach Festival, as well as the Carmel Music Society and Chamber Music Monterey Bay. All perform at the Sunset Center in Carmel-by-the-Sea, a fine arts center that puts on performances, lectures, and serves as venue for city events.

Three theatre groups, Pacific Repertory Theater, The Forest Theater Guild and the Cherry Center for the Performing Arts all put on year-round productions.

Carmel is known for its art galleries, which include painting, sculpture, and photography and there are cultural events such as the Carmel Art & Film Festival, the Carmel Art Festival, and numerous food and wine events.

Carmel is also well located for hiking with many parks such as Mission Trails Park, Point Lobos (2 miles south), Big Sur (26 miles south), and 17-miles drive. This drive is widely recognized as one of the most scenic drives in the world. The famous coastal landmark starts only 2 minutes drive from Ohana Cottage at the bottom of Ocean Avenue in Carmel and goes through the majestic Del Monte forest, past the famous Pebble Beach Golf Course and takes you to the Lodge at Pebble Beach. Just take the drive or stop to play golf or eat at one of 7 restaurants.

Last but not least is to mention is Golf. Ohana Cottage is a “heaven destination” for golfers. Only 6 minutes walk to the famous Pebble Beach Golf Course – makes it an ideal destination during the AT&T Golf Tournament. There are many other courses available in only short drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Ohana Cottage was excellent. The location was ideal for walking to Ocean Avenue or to the beach. The cottage was nicely decorated with elegant touches throughout. We will be back.

We spent the month of February at Ohana cottage. It is very comfortable, well cared for by the owner and newly renovated with high end appliances.

The location is excellent for the beach, walking in town and getting out and about to many other sights.

Thank you and see you next year.

What a perfect spot! Close to the beach, close to downtown Carmel, walking distance to everything. Very modern and comfortable, everything is new. My family loved the week we stayed here during car week as it was the perfect home base for everything we wanted to see. The traffic during this week can be tough so having a location that is within walking distance and also having a driveway to park in is key. We could not have asked for more in a vacation rental. Hope to be back soon!

Ohana Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Ohana Cottage is a really nice place to stay and is in the perfect location. The beach is a very short walk around the corner and down a nice path. (We didn't want to be too close due to the traffic). Restaurants are just a few short blocks from the cottage. The owner (Issac), takes excellent care of this home as it doesn't look like the typical vacation rental. Also, the cottage is larger than what the photos depict. The kitchen is very spacious and has every thing you could possibly need. The master bath shower stall is very small so we used the guest bath shower that is much larger. I would definitely choose to stay at the Ohana Cottage again!

Great place to stay. Feels like home. Owner did a great job in updating the cottage. It has a casual and elegant feel the minute you enter the front door. Kitchen is well equipped. Beds were firm and comfortable. Backyard is charming and peaceful. There is construction going on next door, so it can be noisy at

times. There is a farmers market on Thursday within walking distance. Point Lobos state Park is beautiful, not to be missed. We were glad we chose this rental home verses a hotel. Much more relaxing and comfortable.

Outstanding Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Ohana Cottage for a week the end of April. I will try to be brief but it is difficult. The house was very comfortable, quiet, and has an excellent location. A walk to the beach was a daily routine and is was very easy to hike in and around 17 Mile Drive and walk into town. We love to cook when we rent and the kitchen came very well equipped including all the instructions for appliances, etc. The owners have made a very special effort to make this home a very comfortable home away from home. Thank you so much for sharing!
