Shadows Cottage is divine
We had a terrific time at Shadows Cottage. Part of me is a bit reticent to rave too hard about the house. I'll never get in again, right? It is in a quiet, lovely part of Carmel. The beach and a path is super close. The sun sinks low over Pebble, and you can watch golfers on the green, and the ocean beyond. The house is unbelievably well equipped, down to extra paper towels, detergent, etc. The stove, pans, and spices helped us prepare many big family meals. The bed in the master was super. The rooms on the main floor have great proportions, and fit couples or twenty somethings easily. The plantings around the house are great. The fireplaces are easy to use, and helped chase the chill away. It is a new, pristine house inside, and out. We loved it. Thanks again.
Great house, great owner
Shadow's Cottage is a beautiful home on a street corner right near the carmel gate to pebble beach, surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens and trees. Walking distance to the beach, and fireplaces in almost every room, this is a great getaway spot for a family or a few couples heading to events in the area or some R&R in carmel. The homeowner is very communicative, prompt, and accommodating. We've stayed twice and will no doubt stay again in the future.
Beautiful home; perfect location
Our stay in Carmel was wonderful and the house was comfortable, beautiful, and the location was perfect for access to the beach and easy walk to the town center.
2nd & Carmelo
We had a wonderful month in Carmel staying in this lovely home. The house had everything we needed for our stay. It we clean and comfortable. Also a very quiet area.The Bedroom arrangement made it easy for 2 couple to share, everyone had there own area and space. The Kitchen was fully equipped. The owner was very responsive to our need of "adding the Golf Channel" to the list of choices on the Cable package. An easy walk to town every day and only one block to walk along the path to the beach and Scenic Dr.
Tucked away is this slice of heaven. Access is easy but this wonderful house is near the Carmel beach and a block away from the 17 mile drive gate. Old world charm permeates every room in this house, yet still has all the modern amenities you would expect.
The scenic paintings on the walls in rooms help you disappear into a relaxed state. We just loved it!!!!
Very charming and quaint
Best location within blocks of the ocean and an easy walk to ocean ave. Great layout for privacy with Master bedroom separate from other bedrooms. Loved the gas fireplaces!
