About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

In an exclusive area of sunny Carmel Valley sits our charming, light filled cottage. Newly remodeled with beautiful hickory floors and french doors opening to lawns and flower gardens. The Master bedroom has a queen bed with high quality linens and the guest bedroom has 4 single beds with down comforters. The beautiful kitchen is right out of a country magazine, boasting marble counter tops, Jerusalem stone floors a Wolf stove, Thermador ovens and a Miele dishwasher.

Sitting at our picnic table, overlooking our vineyard and the hills of Carmel Valley, you may even think you are in Tuscany. There is no better place to rest, relax and rejuvenate. Although fine restaurants, golf courses, hiking trails are just a stone's throw away, you may be compelled to stay home and enjoy the peace and serenity of our cottage.

Our property is only a 12 minute drive to Carmel-by-the-Sea with it's beautiful beaches, shopping and fine restaurants, yet far enough away to be out of the persistent summer fog that envelops Carmel.

This property is best suited for people who want to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing retreat.

About Naz

My husband and I are in the construction business. We remodeled the cottage after purchasing it in January of 2011. Everything in the home is new and reflects the care and quality that goes into our workmanship.

Naz purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Naz chose Carmel Valley

After shopping for homes for 6 months and not finding anything we liked, we instantly fell in love with this property. There is just something magical about it. We have lived in and around Carmel for the last 40 years. We love the sunshine and the spaciousness of Carmel Valley.

What makes this cottage unique

We have stayed at VRBO listings all over the country and have yet to find one that matches the quality, cleanliness and beauty of our home. The expansive lawns, flower gardens,views of Garland Ranch State Park and the welcoming warmth of our cottage is unsurpassed.

Perfect Carmel Valley Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at Spring Cottage in early April. Carmel Valley is stunningly beautiful. The Village is close by with many great restaurants and wine tasting rooms. Carmel by the Sea 15 minutes, Pebble Beach Golf Links 25 minutes, Monterey Wharf area 25 minutes, Big Sur just down Highway 1. The cottage was absolutely perfect. Comfortable beds and linens. High quality bathroom and kitchen surfaces and finishings. Everything was immaculate and comfortable. Beautiful outdoor surroundings. We felt very privileged to stay at Spring Cottage and give it our very highest recommendation.

A little touch of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Carmel and Carmel Valley for 12 consecutive years for our annual vacation and have stayed in many different vacation rentals over the years. The "Spring Cottage" is our new favorite!! The home is beautifully appointed with fine furniture, modern, top end appliances and so beautifully appointed that it truly feels like a home.

Our only complaint is that we had to leave after a month and now need to wait 11 more months until our return. We are counting the days.......

My husband and I spent a most special month in Spring cottage. We loved the surroundings, beautiful garden and vineyard.

The house is very comfortable. We loved cooking with wolf range and Thermador oven. Master bathroom is cosy and has a claw foot tub.

We lay to the chaise of the garden at night, enjoyed a star-filled sky. We walked about ten minutes from Spring cottage to a famous Bernardus lodge for lunch several times. There are a lot of winery near by and we enjoyed tasting local wine a lot. There are a lot of things to do. Monterey, Carmel-by-the sea and Big Sur is about one hour drive. The owner Nazneen and Neil are so nice, respect our privacy, yet giving us a every help.

We are planning to go back to Spring Cottage next summer and I can't wait!

The property was nicer than the pictures showed. Everything about the house was excellent and would not hesitate to rent again in the future. The owner was very accommodating including letting us know the leaky shower part was on order which was not a problem when bathroom door was closed.

Carmel Valley unique charm

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, retired, spent February and March 2016 in Spring Cottage on a beautiful 1 acre property surrounded by hedges and flowers, mountain views, adjacent vineyard, very private, 1/2 block from home of Nazneen and Neil Mac Dougall owners and our hosts. The immaculate cottage has good sized rooms, comfortably appointed, very bright with french doors and large windows in every room, all as represented. Equipped large kitchen, washer and dryer, well appointed bath rooms, 1 adjacent to each bedroom (comfortable beds). "Homey". Surrounding local is rural, upscale acreage properties, wooded along winding local roads, ideal for my morning walk; Garland Ranch Park close by for serious hiking. The Mac Douglas were gracious, helpful and available if needed, providing us a list of favorite restaurants--3 excellent in tiny quaint Carmel Valley Village 2 miles away, home to many wine tasting locations. 25 minutes to Carmel by the Sea and Monterey minutes beyond. The valley is very beautiful; and Spring Cottage is an ideal retreat to relax, pampering winter weather often warm enough for sun bathing. The cottage and location are both quite special. We plan to return next year.

A beautiful, quiet retreat in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is surrounded by plants, flowers, trees and bushes, giving it natural privacy. Located on a beautiful country road (great for walks), it is also conveniently less than 10 minutes from Carmel Valley, 20 minutes from Carmel by the Sea, and 20 minutes from Monterey. The wonderful owners live next door, and are super responsive if you need anything, but are also very respectful of your privacy. They remodeled the house recently, and it has a brand-new, high-end feel. When we were there, the doors/windows did not have screens, but the owners are in the process of having screens made now. We’d definitely stay again.
