Space 625 sq. ft.
Property type cottage

About the property

Spacious, quiet, and romantic pool house cottage with the feel of a cabin on the sunny side of Carmel Valley Village. 13' x 18' master bedroom and large knotty pine living room each open up to your own private pool and patio area. In addition to the 625 SF of interior space, there is a very relaxing 170 SF of shady and fully furnished outdoor living. A covered bar overlooks the pool-attached hot tub. Everything just mentioned is behind a 6' - 7' fence and is exclusively for the current guests during their stay. With no interference from city lights, the brilliance of the stars is truly remarkable. Restaurants, wine tasting, and shops abound within walking distance (less than a mile) of the property. Carmel by the Sea, Pebble Beach, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Laguna Seca Raceway are all within a 15 to 20 minute drive . Big Sur is just beyond at 45 minutes. (2) flat-screen TV's, WIFI, and a bluetooth sound system keep you connected during your stay. Parking is on flat pavement; protected and safe within 20' of the gate to your relaxing time in Carmel Valley Village.

*** It may be overstating the obvious, but our neighborhood has all the normal neighborhood noises that one might expect - lawn mowers, blowers, an occasional dog bark, other families entertaining and enjoying their properties, etc. As many of our reviews have stated, the overall experience is very quiet, peaceful, and relaxing, but we are not an isolated property with an absence of real life noises. ***

average rating of 4.965517 based on 29 reviews

This layout was absolutely awesome. The pool house is a place you visit twice.

My wife and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary here and it was exactly what we were looking for. We spent our time out by the coast, in town and of coarse a full day at the pool house. The property is a little slice of paradise, Gary and Cathy we super nice people. The Pool house has all the information you could need for your upcoming stay. Looking forward to returning to the pool house in the future. Highly recommend a visit.

We couldn’t have been more pleased with our decision to stay here, and in fact, altered our plans so we could spend a little more time in the fabulous outdoor space! Gary and Cathy were GREAT hosts and the pool house was the perfect set-up for us, with plenty of room and a wonderfully comfortable bed; it's far more than a "pool house", as it is set up and appointed as a very nice one-bedroom apartment. PERFECT location for getting to anywhere in the area. If we get a chance to come back to the Monterey/Carmel/Big Sur area, this will be the place we stay!

It was lovely. We enjoyed every minute. Weather was amazing, wine tasting, and cute restaurants in walking distance. So charming in the village. Gary and Cathy were great hosts and so knowledgeable of the area

Fantastic. Absolutely fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, wonderful place. Gary and Cathy are available if you need them but did not obtuse on our stay once. The 'pool house' as it is referred to is the size of a decent one bed apartment and in our opinion the pictures do not do it justice. It is cosy, quiet, peaceful and very well equipt. Carmel Valley has some lovely places to eat and drink and we would HIGHLY recommend staying here. It is easily worth the money. Perfect place to relax and recharge the batteries. We loved it. Thank you. Lee and Lily Waddingham

Amazing place!

We loved how private the pool and hot tub were. Would have rated 5 stars if there were laundry.

Owner's Response: Mildly amused by getting dinged (1) star for the lack of an amenity that is clearly not offered. Glad that you enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Thank you for your visit!
