About Kirsten Rhodes

We love this cottage and over the last 6 years have taken great pride in renovating it. We've updated all the amenities, while keeping it's original charm. Because we're not using it as often as originally intended, we thought it would be great to share our dream with those that want to experience Carmel.

Why Kirsten Rhodes chose Northeast Carmel

We LOVE Carmel --- it has so much to offer to literally everyone! Tranquil beaches, stunning ocean views, the best golf has to offer, fantastic food & wine, amazing art, and activities for the kids (and adults that are kids at heart) --- what's not to love.

What makes this cottage unique

Perfectly situated in town, close to restaurants & shops, quiet street and access to golf make it a fabulous cottage for you to enjoy.

Beautiful from start to finish!

  • 5 of 5

Words CAN'T describe how beautiful this house and cottage are. It's so well decorated, cozy, airy with skylights, and something straight out of a Fairytale with its landscaping.

I can't say ENOUGH amazing things and would someday love to return! Four generations (great grandma, grandma, mom, daughter) all found this to be perfect for our needs.

Loved this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

After looking at many properties I decided this one due to the reviews and location. I can't say enough good things about this property. The owner was easy to work with. The property is very clean and attention to detail outstanding.

As stated in other reviews well equipped kitchen and comfy beds and linens and soft towels. But the feel of this place cannot be described by words on a page it is so cozy and welcoming. The backyard with all it's flowers was a joy to wake up to every morning. I was there with my dad (83) his wife my husband and 24 year old son for my husband's birthday. We were all so sad to leave!

A perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Carmel for a family wedding, and rented this home for our trip. This property is so much better than the photos convey. What a charming and delightful home! The house is ***spotlessly*** clean, and the owners have gone the extra mile to make sure that the house is fully stocked with everything you could ask for. Excellent cooking utensils, plenty of dishes, pots, pans, etc.. Excellent quality sheets, pillows, and mattresses. (None of that cheap, lumpy stuff you sometimes find in rentals.) Beautiful towels. Lovely paint colors, and elegant, thoughtful decor. The garden and patio are amazing. Very private and serene. A perfect spot for coffee, yoga, meditating, reading, or sipping wine. Lovely furniture on the patio, as well. A quiet restful place with friendly neighbors. Very helpful owners made renting a breeze and were so happy to help with dining recommendations, too. The house is so great that I'm looking for another excuse to return to Carmel as soon as possible. I feel so lucky that've found this rental! What a delight!
