About the Property

2 bedroom, two bath charming cottage, walk to town, beach, Carmel Mission

Charming French Country style Carmel cottage located in the Golden Rectangle which means an easy walk to town, to the beach, and to favorite spots like Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch restaurant for dinner.

Enjoy quiet evenings by the quintessentially crooked Carmel stone fireplace while you relax in this designer built and decorated home. However if you need to work during your stay, we have high speed WIFI, and a fax/scanner/printer ready for your use. We also offer free long distance calls.

The large master suite has a wonderful Monterey Mattress King bed, fireplace, comfy window seat, and south facing deck where you can take a peek of Monastery Beach and enjoy the morning and afternoon sun. Custom bedding and drapes. Office nook gives you a place to do some work.

The master bath has double sinks, a shower and a separate spa tub and private WC. Large walk in closet.

The downstairs bedroom has a twin, pine sleigh bed with a trundle that pulls out, and up, to comfortably sleep two. There are French doors which lead to a quiet Carmel stone patio and garden - -another spot to catch the afternoon sun.

The kitchen is fully equipped. Sit at the counter with your morning coffee and check your email on a wireless high speed connection. Or catch the morning sun while sitting in the front garden on the sea otter bench.

This house is even prettier than the pictures. It's our home and we love it. We are sure you will too. Please send an email with any questions you may have. Extra photos available on request. Thank you.

Feel free to email with rate questions. Depending on our travel schedule, and yours, we may be able to offer you a better rate.

About the owner: still working on what to say about us!

Why the Owner Chose Golden Rectangle, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, USA:
We fell in love with this designer built home in April of 97 and moved in in May. We love it still, and love sharing it with fellow travelers in search of a little escape. It's easy and comfortable, bright and sunny home with beautiful windows. But it has a great master bedroom where you can sleep all day if you lower the shades. A great master bath and lots of window seats to cozy up on with a good book.
