The fresh tranquil feeling of being at the seashore will follow you home to this 734 square feet, snug cottage that sleeps four located in a quiet tree-shrouded neighborhood south of Ocean Avenue. Ideally located, it is an easy walk to the heart of downtown Carmel with its collection of fine shops, galleries and restaurants. The historic Carmel Mission is only a few blocks in the opposite direction and the locals’ favorite, Carmel River Beach, just a few minutes away by car. Highway 1, providing access to Monterey and Pacific Grove to the north and Big Sur to the south, is just minutes away.
The pristine white of the clouds, the azure and sea-foam blues of the waves and the soothing neutrals of the sands of Carmel Beach are the colors that predominate in this bright two-bedroom, two-bath retreat that is situated a bit lower than the street and secluded behind a bank of ivy. As you enter the property you are greeted by a terraced front yard area that is set up with lawn furniture perfect for relaxing with a book on a warm sunny day.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complementary wine and cheese, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear.
This cozy cottage, with its wood floors and beamed ceilings throughout, has been freshly painted. The front door opens to a light-filled living room with two large picture windows, a dark taupe sofa with chaise, comfortable chairs, an area rug and a 42-inch flat-screen TV for movie watching after a long day of taking in the local attractions.
A glass table with four chairs off the kitchen allows you to enjoy at home meals prepared in the spotless white kitchen, fully equipped with a stainless-steel gas range, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave, has everything you need to prepare gourmet meals and entertain. Step out from the kitchen through glass doors to a deck furnished with an umbrella, a wooden table and chairs for four and a grill for enjoying al fresco meals on those days when you just can’t get enough of the outdoors. A Japanese maple graces a small back yard, which is fully enclosed should you want to bring your well-behaved dog.
The master bedroom, which has a trio of floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to a narrow deck and greenbelt of oaks, has two gray end tables and a king with memory foam topper that converts to two twins. The luxury bedding in colors of the sea will remind you that the Pacific Ocean is just minutes away. The palest of sea-foam-green tiles are used on the floor and in the shower of the master bath.
A second bedroom off the living room has a queen bed. Beautiful bedding in sea-foam colors is provided. A second recently updated bathroom with pale taupe tiles has a farmhouse sink and a tub/shower.
A stacking washer and dryer are provided. There is on-and-off-street parking.
