About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath easy walk to Ocean Ave, 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 for dinner and drinks.

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 & a fax/scanner/printer ready for your use. We also offer free long distance calls and Xfinity on Demand with Voice Control.

The large master suite has a wonderful Monterey Mattress King bed, fireplace, comfy window seat, and south facing deck to enjoy the 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. Sheets and towels are frequently updated.

The downstairs bedroom has a two twin beds, a nice-sized closet, dresser, and room under the bed for your suitcases. There are French doors which lead to a quiet Carmel stone patio and garden - -another spot to catch the afternoon sun. The bedroom is not connected to the first floor bath but just 2 steps away still offering privacy from the living area.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a Viking stove and new fridge. There's a Weber gas grill in the portico. Enjoy sitting at the counter with your morning coffee while checking your email on a secure wireless high speed connection. Or catch the morning sun while sitting in the front garden on the sea otter bench - and still catching the wifi.

Linens, towels, blankets, pots, pans, knives are always in the best condition!

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.

Nihongo mo dozo!

About Liz Sato

still working on what to say about us!

Liz Sato purchased this house in 1997

Why Liz Sato chose Golden Rectangle

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. We keep our towels and lines in great shape. No stains on the kitchen towels, clean pots and pans, and sharp knives. And there will be no crumbs in the drawers or sofa cracks! ( My biggest lament when we rent other homes. )

What makes this house unique

Our home is easy! For a Carmel cottage, we have lots of space for your things in the pantry and in the clothes closets. We also have EASY parking as we are just far enough away from Ocean Avenue to not have to worry about finding parking. You can park either in the driveway or right in front. No tricky steps or long walkways. Lots of light yet lots of privacy. Dutch doors are fun and let the fresh air in.

Great accommodation, move in ready and great communications and flexibility with owner Liz!

  • 5 of 5

House was move in ready for us and what a great location. Quiet area and short walk to ocean. Everything we could ask for in a rental. Owner Liz was very helpful and accommodating, even changed the 2nd bedroom beds to twins for our visiting adult kids who spent a week with us.
