About Cheryl Assemi

My family and I have lived in the area since 2008. Purchasing, remodeling and restoring Sky Way Cottage was a labor of love which took most of 2012 to complete and something we strive to maintain. We wanted it to look the way, we felt, it always should have.

Cheryl Assemi purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Cheryl Assemi chose Golden Rectangle

For us, it was love at first sight. Sky Way Cottage and our other 4 listings (Log Haven 937413, Tradewinds 938557, Home Port 938549 and Moon Gate 938556) reside on one property, collectively called the Carmel Cottage Inn. The cottages are full time vacation rentals with hotel status, which allows us to rent by the night. The gardens and patios are designed to give each cottage a feeling of privacy. The proximity of our cottages, patios and gardens to each other, as well as to the beach and downtown Carmel, make them equally ideal for a single cottage rental or for larger groups, family reunions, etc. To keep the houses fresh for longer visits, we arrange for periodic light housekeeping for stays of 3 nights or longer.

What makes this cottage unique

Built in the 1940's, Sky Way Cottage is a charming studio flat with it's own balcony patio. Discover all of the beautiful flowers in the gardens behind it or relax in the living room at the end of an eventful day. Listen to the sound of the waves in the distance and enjoy a peek of the ocean from the window seat in the living room.

We hope our guests will love Sky Way Cottage as much as we do.

Traditional Carmel Cottage Charm!

  • 5 of 5

Sky Way Cottage was beautiful and ideally located a couple blocks up from the ocean. The cottage was clean and inviting with a nice welcome package of goodies waiting for our arrival. The grounds were spectacular with flowers in full bloom! The managers were very responsive and seemed genuinely interested in our stay being perfect in every way. Carmel is always beautiful and this cottage enhanced our enjoyment of the area! We'll be back!

Sweltering but Charming

  • 5 of 5

Heat advisory in Carmel but our stay was great. Great location, charming accommodations and nice goodie bag upon arrival. A couple more strong fans would have been great but we understand how unusual the circumstances were.

Owner's Response: Hi Rohnn, Thank you for the kind review. You are a trouper to have gone through the heat with us. It is very unusual to have that warm of weather here which is why most of the houses in Carmel do not have air conditioning. We felt it too and have purchased additional, much stronger fans for all of our cottages. Best regards, Cheryl

Perfect property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two nights at Sky Way in Carmel. On a past trip we noticed the cottages and jotted them down for future reference. So glad we did! Sky Way is really perfect. The location can't be beat - - one block up from the beach, in a beautiful neighborhood with lovely homes and cottages. Perfect for walking. Also a few blocks down from the main village of Carmel. The cottage was very charming with a comfy couch, chairs, lights in the living area - - good TV. Kitchen had small refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee pot - - all the dishes and extras you would need - and a nice table. The bedroom was very cozy and comfortable. Great storage, great reading lights (which are important to us) and a very nice bathroom with tub/shower. It was a bit cool so we didn't have a chance to lounge out on the deck, but will do that next time - - and there will be a next time.

Perfect for our stay

  • 5 of 5

We visited in early June and loved this place. I'm not sure there's any better combination of location, price and quality than Cheryl's set of properties in Carmel. The Sky Way was just right for two and such a short walk to the ocean. Not only is the unit itself completely charming, it overlooks a lovely garden that ties together the different units that comprise the Inn. It is an uphill climb into town, but if that's a challenge, guests could always just drive up. I would come back here in a heartbeat.
