About Nancy Hussey

I grew up in the bay area and frequently visited Carmel with my family as a child. In the summers, I would enjoy tennis camp and long walks on the beach.

Nancy Hussey purchased this house in 2006

Why Nancy Hussey chose Northeast Carmel

I like this property because its very authentic vintage cottage. The original interior craftsmanship has been preserved. Many of the houses in the Carmel only have two bedrooms and I wanted at least three to accommodate friends and visitors.

All the rooms are very spacious, especially the living room with it's vaulted ceilings. One of the bathrooms was preserved and the other tastefully updated. All the bedrooms are private and quiet. The kitchen is spacious and was recently updated and offers views of the garden through the bay window.

What makes this house unique

Very charming with mature landscaping, meandering pathways and stone patio. Beautiful mature oak tree graces the front of the house. Walking distance to town and the beach. Bus stop at the corner for those who arrived without a car.

There were many problems with the property that detracted from our happiness. Overall, however, the property was secure, the neighborhood was friendly, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was adequate.

Problems were encountered with electric receptacles, both sink basins in the master bathroom, a loose table top in the front room, a desk chair with flaking upholstery, a front gate with inadequate latch and wobbly post, a leaking Keurig coffemaker, a towel rack that fell off the wall because it was installed wrong, light switches that turned on lights only in the off position. The manager fixed almost everything in response to text messaging, but there were inconveniences of worker availability, etc. The loose tabletop, the leaking Keurig, and the flaking desk chair never did get fixed or replaced.

Charming, lovely, well appointed and comfortable in all ways!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here because a friend was getting married in the area. The home was lovely to arrive to and was clean, stylish, fresh and beautiful. The kitchen was very well stocked and the patio was a joy to sit on. While Uber makes getting around easy as long as the drivers understand there are no addresses in Carmel, the house was very close to restaurants and a wonderful market was only a few blocks away so we walked every chance we could. We discovered the weekend farmers market on one of these walks and it was delightful! If you are indecisive as to where to stay, you would be happy with this choice indeed.

Adorable Carmel Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Carmel for a girls weekend and this cottage was an awesome home away from home. It was so well appointed, location to everything was perfect, and it made a cozy resting spot after busy days. It was clean and welcoming!

Carmel Classic

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home. It is a charming home with a perfect location to enjoy Carmel By The Sea as well as easy access to the valley and Monterey. There was plenty of room in the living space and the dining room and the floor plan was perfect to enjoy company but have space to move around. Large and clean kitchen with everything we needed. The bedrooms are all nice size and comfortable. We had plenty of room for 4 adults. The guest bathroom is small so I don't know if the third bedroom really could handle two more adults...maybe children however. The patio and front yard were the highlights. A special spot to relax with coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. The front dutch door was lovely for letting a bit of the outside inside. Having this home to come back to each evening and wake up to each morning was the highlight of the trip. We will be back to enjoy this home again.
