We are Sue Freeman and John Hancock, owners of Honey's Retreat. We were married 12 years ago after meeting in Big Sur, California.
I am originally from Atlanta, GA. and moved to CA. in 1987. John is originally from Bozeman, Montana. We have 7 adult children between us and just had our 8th grandchild We presently live in Laguna Beach where I have lived for 22 years. People ask why we named our cottage Honey's Retreat. Honey is my southern nickname given to me by my grandchildren.
I picked Carmel when my daughter LISA chose to live in Monterey after losing her home in the Malibu Fire. I thought it would be nice to own a vacation home that I could use as well as rent. We would be able to visit Lisa and my granddaughter Camille. A year later my daughter and her family moved to Paris, France. As much as I love France I am not buying a home there! MORAL OF STORY: Do not follow your children.
Living in Laguna Beach we are very blessed to have properties in 2 beautiful places.

Thank you for letting us stay in your cute home. It was nice to wake up to the birds chirping outisde the bedroom in the morning. We loved having our coffee/tea out on the patio. The walk to town took us about 15 minutes (had to go get the car as we bought to much stuff to carry back to the home that evening).
