Atherton Cottage has it's own private parking driveway with lighted brick walkway to the fronf door. Also included is a full size stacked washer & Dryer.

The property was beautiful. It was well appointed with everything we needed
The property was well kept, clean, and had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed all the information on things to do in the area. We took huge advantage of the hiking books. The house was very comfortable. The location was perfect for us. My husband ran the marathon and we were about 1 mile from the finish. As well as ~1 mile from town and the beach.
Relaxing vacation in Carmel
I stayed at Bill's place with my greyhound, Shader, during spring break. The house is cozy, clean, and well stocked on everything one might need for a short vacation. Close to dog friendly beach and trails, both my greyhound and I had a good time.
Bill was very responsive when I had questions.
We will definitely consider reserving this property again next time we visit Carmel.
great little gem - clean with everything you need
We absolutely loved this place and would stay here again. We brought our dogs, too.
-Everything WORKED - heating, WiFi, lights and appliances.
-There were plenty of linens - blankets, towels, throws, even beach towels and a fully stocked beach supply room with chairs, picnic basket, sand toys for kids. The linens were high quality, making our stay feel luxurious and comfortable!
-There are trees and green wooded areas everywhere despite that its a fairly densely populated area - we heard owls, saw quails, and felt we were in a nature retreat. Lots of privacy from the trees (the owner lives on the premises, so this was a great feature!).
-Well-stocked kitchen, we always found what we needed
-It was CLEAN - really, really clean. This is a huge plus for me, being a little OCD and germaphobic.
-Bill was very nice, really responsive/available and made sure we knew how to contact him
-Centrally located to town - easy and quick access to all of the shopping centers, main strip, dining.
Note for dog owners
-Bill was really accommodating for our dogs - which always feels good to us. There was a fee but we gladly pay it since we consider our dogs family.
-It's a bit tricky to take the dogs for walks bc there are no sidewalks and minimal shoulders on the road. This was fine, we would just drive them to the beach, which is REALLY close, had ample street parking right beside the beach, AND the beach is so, so beautiful and dog-friendly. Lots of friendly dogs and friendly dog-owners. There are a couple of nearby parks as well.
-There's no enclosed yard at the house, but there is an enclosed deck to keep the dogs when you leave the premises. We (the humans) loved hanging out on this deck - its surrounded by glass so you could see views of the ocean and sunset, with nice lounging chairs. We would just throw the dog beds out there and let them hang out.
Bottom line - we would ABSOLUTELY stay here again for all of the conveniences in the house as well as in the neighborhood.
My family had a great long weekend staying at the Atherton Cottage. The place is clean, and very well supplied. Anything that you could need is available in the kitchen. Plenty of beach supplies including chairs, towels, and sand toys. The bedding was plush, and very comfortable. I highly recommend this place, and would definitely stay here again. This place also allows dogs which makes for a great family getaway.
Someone made a comment about the narrow roads and no sidewalks, all of Carmel is like this. When I walked the dog around the neighborhood, there are side streets with very little traffic on them. There was even a big tree stump the kids played on just around the corner from the cottage.
Beautiful cottage with amazing views.
The Cottage was Quaint and comfortable with great exterior spaces and landscaping! location was idle for folks familiar with Carmel. Led track lights were annoying and flickering! Need to disclose owner living on premises for people to decide if that works for them!
I have replaced the LED lights with new Quarts lights as the Led lights had a problem dimming even after replacing the dimmer switch, No problem now. Thank you for pointing it out! The owner does live on the property which is on an Acre lot that is street to street and I live on the upper street in a main house which is approx.300 - 400+ feet away with a large cement/stucco wall and trees between the two.
Only a mile away is Point Lobos State Park a Great place to take hikes where you can go to sandy beach coves, see waterfalls as well as an abundant of sea life!
