About Penny Hoglund

This is our beach retreat. Our daughter grew up coming here every weekend to explore the beach, and all the surrounding area has to offer. We spent every Thanksgiving here until we moved to the Tahoe Area. Now with our daughter in college we find we don't get down to Carmel as often. We hope you enjoy and find the sense of peace that we do when in Carmel.

Penny Hoglund purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Penny Hoglund chose Northeast Carmel

We purchased this property because we spent almost every weekend in the Carmel area. We looked at lots of homes, but we loved the trees and how quiet our location is. The bonus was the ability to walk to town. At night, with the windows open you can hear the surf. So many homes didn't have a lot of parking and we always have visitors so this worked for us.

What makes this cottage unique

Walk to town. Totally rebuild from the studs up in 2013.

Great home - great location.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home close to town and beach. Waking up in the morning and starting a fire to take off the chill or sitting around the outdoor fire pit toasting marshmallows in the evening, Petite Retreat was the right place to make a perfect vacation.

3rd Time at Our Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

Another great experience at our Happy Place away from home. Penny continues to improve our vacation experience and we are already booking our 4th return in 2017. The home is fully stocked, old charm but with all the modern benefits and so well located to everything Carmel has to offer.

The property was exceptionally well designed and clean with an updated kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

The house had very nice furniture, comfortable beds and lovely linens. The bathrooms had great sized showers. I really enjoyed sitting in the front of the house in the rockers and I also loved the gas fire pit on the side of the house with nice seating. The additional asset to this house is that the owner was so nice and provided immediate answers to small minor problems that we had while there. It also was close enough to Ocean avenue to be able to walk down and shop. Selecting this home would be a very great choice. The owner happened to be in Carmel while we were there and we had her over to "Her" home. She brought a fabulous bottle of wine and we had a great time together. Penny, I hope to see you again next year when we come back, but this time we are buying dinner. Your are the kind of person I would love to get to know better. Thanks so much for all you did for us and Murphy, our pet, said thank you too. He loved sitting outside with me.

The Carmel Turnkey Walk to Town Cottage Retreat is Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful month at Penny's perfect cottage in Carmel-By-The-Sea. This newly remodeled and tastefully decorated home left nothing to be desired. Both indoor and outdoor living spaces are well thought out and made for a delightful vacation home away from home. We so enjoyed sipping wine as we rocked in the rocking chairs on the flagstone patio in the front of the house, as well as eating dinner on the second patio around the fire pit at the side of the house. My husband honed his culinary skills using the large gas grill and I enjoyed the beautifully appointed kitchen with gas stove and everything needed to bake, cook, and prepare meals. We found the location of the cottage to be perfect. It was within walking distance to town and just far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be a quiet retreat. We slept like babies after a day at the beach and loved the comfortable bed with comfy bedding and linens. Penny was very attentive and made sure our stay was just Perfect!
