Immaculate house in a good location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. Although we did not meet the owner, she answered all emails, phone calls and texts very promptly, and provided a lot of helpful information.

The house was spotless and comfortable, and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, a real stove and refrigerator, etc.

The only thing we found wanting was that the mattress in the room with the twin beds was extremely hard.

Overall, it's a very nice spot to stay in Carmel, and you can walk to the beach, shops, restaurants, and the pretty Mission Park trails.

Not much I would change for this quaint property. For folks who might stay longer only thing I would add would be better cutlery and pots/pans for those who like to cook

Christmas in Carmel

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely little cottage close to downtown Carmel. It has everything you need in the kitchen for you to cook your meals. It is a warm cozy relaxing cottage. The owners live in a house that is connected to the cottage. I thought it might be a little awkward having them right next to us but it was not a problem. We saw cars in their driveway but we never saw anyone from their house the whole time we were there Saturday 12/23 thru Tuesday 12/26. We would love to come back and stay in this cottage again in the future. We have a nine pound terrier mix that stayed with us. We were very grateful to have ben able to have our dog with us during our Christmas stay. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your cottage.

Beautiful gardens, Comfy beds, private, walking (semi-steep) distance from downtown and beach~

  • 5 of 5

The Red Barn Cottage was a perfect base for my friend and I to explore the Carmel-by-the-Sea/Big Sur area.The gardens are gorgeous , the location fantastic-especially if you want to walk to downtown and the beach, and the hosts honored our privacy while remaining accommodating. GREAT getaway for adventurous/active types. Beds and bedding met our high standards. I would love to come again!
