Perfect 45th Anniversary Trip
We had a wonderful stay at Cotswold Cottage. It was very clean and had everything we needed. We were celebrating our 45th anniversary and we couldn't have found a more charming cottage!
Adorable Cottage Close to Everything!
We loved our stay at Cotswold Cottage! It was a convenient walk to everything in Carmel, making access to restaurants and shopping easy. The cottage is also nicely equipped and updated. Everything you need is right there, meaning you don't have to buy any supplies aside from groceries.
The owner was very easy to work with, and the property manager met us on-site and showed us around upon our arrival. Because of its location, you also have easy access to Highway 1, as well as your pick of grocery stores. There's a lovely forested park nearby with mulch trails for those who like to run or bike. And like I mentioned previously, downtown is close enough to walk to when you get hungry. (Comfortable shoes are a must because Carmel's streets are, shall we say, uneven, and there aren't many sidewalks.) We even walked down to the beach a couple of times!
We used Yelp to locate restaurants -- Demetrios, Tree House Cafe and Nico were our favorites. We grabbed brunch at The Cottage one day, and of course, we had to duck into the Hog's Breath Inn for a drink. (Try their Lover's Coffee!) The gallery owners along the main shopping corridors are very hospitable, too!
During our stay, we booked a private kayak excursion through Monterey Bay Kayaks in Elkhorn Slough. It is the best way to get up close with some of the wildlife. And on our last full day there, we hiked all of Point Lobos State Park. In other words, there's plenty to do, and Cotswold Cottage is a great central location from which to operate!
A Peaceful and Very Pretty Carmel Retreat.
Having travelled from the UK via a cruise down the coast, we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in Carmel. The booking process was very easy, with many useful emails with the owner to clarify booking, payment and contract. The handover was very well managed by Rick, the local agent. The cottage itself is very picturesque, being small but beautifully formed for 4 adults (same family using one bathroom). It's location is very central to 'downtown' Carmel and within walking distance of the beach. The owner's refunding of the deposit payment was very prompt.
This well-equipped cottage (laundry, internet, linen etc.) is ideal for a quiet getaway in the heart beautiful Carmel!
My husband and I stayed at this charming Cotswold cottage for a week during the recent AT&T tournament. The property was immaculate when we arrived and even cuter than the pictures on-line. Beds were very comfortable and, although the kitchen was quite small, it was very well equipped. As the weather during our stay was so beautiful, we spend a lot of time sitting in the yard listening to the birds and watching the many neighborhood dog walkers (very friendly neighbors!). At night you can hear the ocean waves while falling asleep. I think my favorite leisure activity was sitting in the Bergere chairs with the front door open - just enjoying the ambiance while working on my computer or just reading. I really appreciated the proximity to Ocean Avenue and all of our favorite restaurants (Anton & Michel, Cassanova, The Grill on Ocean). I would definitely recommend this lovely house to anyone wanting an intimate, romantic retreat. Rick (property mgr) was very helpful when we first arrived (appreciated the wine!) and we can't thank Denise enough for opening her home for others to experience. We will definitely be back - hopefully soon - Carmel is one of our favorite retreats.
Charming cosy cottage
Well-organized management of rental from meeting with Rick who helped us find the cottage (I am always getting lost) and getting refund back in a timely manner. Cottage is smaller than it appears in the photograph but really charming and perfect for four people. I value my sleep and the beds were wonderful. Kitchen was well-equipped but very small - good enough for basic cooking but prep space limited. Definitely recommend the cottage for visits to Carmel.
Story book cottage
Adorable cottage! Exactly as described and pictured. Very cozy inside and neighborhood was quiet. Convenient location to downtown shopping area. Would definitely stay here again!
Steps away from the center of the Village and Beach. Private Driveway parking for 2 cars.
