Charming Carmel Cottage by-the-sea

  • 5 of 5

Leased Toby's cottage home for the month of July and love it. Perfect location, it's like they say location, location, location: just a few blocks and your at the beach or just a short stroll to town. The cottage was very clean, well maintained and fully stocked with many extras and nice-to-haves. Dog friendly with a great backyard area was a plus. Not only is Toby's home lovely, working with Toby was awesome and effortless. He is extremely responsive and accommodating if possible. He even emailed contact info for nannies and other services of interest while in Carmel. Definitely have added to my favorites for future visits to Carmel.

homey and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

had a reunion week with old college chum at Toby's place in Carmel in February of 2017. We found the property spotlessly maintained, charming, extremely comfortable and well equipped for our stay. The memory foam mattress toppers made sleeping a dream. The bedroom suites located in opposite "wings" of the cottage provided privacy. We were a party of two unrelated adults and found the space wonderfully suited to our needs. Toby was a highly responsive host .

Charming Coastal Cottage in Enchanting Forest Town!

  • 5 of 5

Le Sejour Parfait is such an amazing cottage in the heart of an enchanting town! Toby's house is very nicely appointed...comfy beds, kitchen with everything you might possibly need (blender, pizza cutter, little device for squeezing name a few.) Even the dinnerware is charming. Our two little dogs love exploring in the fully fenced in yard and romping on the off-leash, dog-friendly beach just a short walk away. You can also walk into town for delicious food and chains in town, so it's like you're in a different country. I've already recommended Toby's home to friends and family. Visitors here will not be disappointed.

Had a Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 days at Le Sejour Parfait and had a fantastic time. The house was perfect for us and our dogs and included all the amenities you need while away from home. The attention to detail in the decor was fabulous too. The dogs loved the deck and the backyard to relax after a day of fun. A perfect, quiet location where you can walk to town for shopping, dinner or the farmer's market or to the beach for some scenic exercise. Toby was great to work with and very responsive to all our questions. We're looking forward to returning next year.

Luxury Hidden Gem in the Heart of Carmel!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Toby's elegantly french-inspired cottage in Carmel aiming for a complete R&R. Our goal was achieved. By Day 1 we already feel relaxed. The cottage and neighborhood is peaceful and has a beautiful garden. The beds are very comfortable, kitchen fully-equipped with everything you can think of. Nothing was missed on this priceless gem in the heart of Carmel. Toby, was a delight to work with. He was prompt in responding and welcoming. Our dogs were happy running in the backyard while we relax in the patio. We did not use our car - all we did was walk to restaurants, beach, and shopping which was all walking distance. We will definitely be back and make this property our vacation rental stay. We frequent Carmel with our dogs and staying in Toby's cottage was much more convenient. Un havre de paix!

About Tobin Schneider

I have been a part time resident of Carmel by the Sea since 2010. While I live and work primarily in the San Francisco Bay area, I have been visiting Carmel for decades and became fortunate enough to purchase a vacation home there. I use it often, and rent it when I am not able to be in Carmel

Tobin Schneider purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Tobin Schneider chose Golden Rectangle

Le Sejour Parfait is located in the best area of Carmel by the Sea. Only a few blocks away is Carmel Beach in one direction and in another direction all the restaurants, shops, and galleries of Carmel by the Sea. All the cares of the world seem to melt away here. One can watch whales and porpoises from the beach and enjoy a gourmet meal at one of the many dining establishments all within a short stroll from the home
