“The Perfect Stay/Getaway”
My girlfriend and I decided to visit the Carmel and Monterey area as part of our trip to San Francisco. At first, we were considering hotels in Monterey/Carmel. But after coming across many average reviews for the hotels in the area, we decided to be more adventurous and rent a vacation rental for our 3 night stay. It turned out to be a great decision and the perfect stay/getaway! We were a little apprehensive before we arrived since neither of us have rented a vacation rental(we have always stuck with hotels for our trips/vacations). However, Sylvia made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived until the moment we left! She greeted us at the driveway when we arrived and provided us with a quick but thorough introduction to Carmel and Monterey with maps and directions of the downtown. She recommended restaurants and many local attractions to visit during our stay. When we entered our room, there were plenty of snacks, drinks, and even a bottle of wine provided! Although the room is small, it is truly perfect! Everything in this cozy and charming studio was very nice, updated, comfortable, and clean! Trust me, there is so much to do and see in the area that you won't be in the room much anyway...except for sleeping and getting ready to venture out! Although one day during our stay, my girlfriend and I enjoyed a simple lunch on the charming patio! We really felt like we lived there...which is a feeling you don't often get when you stay at a hotel! The owners are right next door if you ever need anything. The occasional times we ran into them were when we left or returned to the property. They were so kind and always wanted to know how everything was going! It felt as if they were are neighbors! All in all, the location was great(10-15 minute walk to downtown Carmel), the hosts were very accommodating,and the experience was perfect! If you want to visit Carmel and feel like a local stay at this rental! You will have such a great time and comfortable stay!
Response from the owner Thank you Kevin and Heather for being delightful guests! We really appreciate the thorough review and are so glad you were happy. So many people have told me that once they discover the vacation rental world that they leave the hotel scene behind. You really do get to experience a place like a local. And even in a small space like our studio you have many amenities that hotels don't offer. Quiet and privacy are just the beginning and you're much more likely to remember your stay if the place is one of a kind. Bravo for venturing in to a new arena! Come again! Sylvia and Tim
“Exceeded all Expectations!”
This charming and luxurious cottage in peaceful Carmel-by-the-Sea exceeded all expectations! Beautifully designed space - small - but a pleasure to return to each night. Everything you would need to enjoy your stay has been provided, and it was fresh, clean and tasteful. No carpets - all upgraded tile and a wonderful bathroom!!! After enjoying the lovely area we would return to the private gated patio with our two terriers, have a glass of wine and plan the next day. The setting is a quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance to the village of Carmel. There is a nice walking path through the trees. The personal service provided by Sylvia and Tim is one of the reasons this was such an excellent experience. We have stayed in rental cottages from Florida to California, and this was the best by far - we will return next year!
Response from the owner Thank you Linda and Mike! You were the first guests to stay in the newly remodeled studio so your feedback is especially important. So glad you found it a great spot to stay. We think the upgrades made a big difference, especially the bathroom, new coffee bar and patio. So much better than most hotels in Carmel too in terms of privacy and quiet. We look forward to welcoming you back. Sylvia and Tim
We stayed here for three nights back in January. It was a cute and cozy cottage with a nice walk down to the beach and town. We took our Labrador and the host was very welcoming of him and our toddler. The kitchenette was exactly what we needed, and we had complimentary snacks for our stay which was a nice touch. It was in a nice location and we look forward to another visit .
Response from the owner Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review. Glad you liked the walking path - lots of our guests really enjoy that and we're very close to the center of town. And of course Carmel is famously dog friendly. Please do come again! Sylvia and Tim
We needed a two night rental that was dog friendly and inexpensive. This delightful cottage more than fit the bill. It was a clean and cozy studio cottage that welcomed our two small dogs. The kitchen area was sufficient to make our breakfasts and the bed was super comfortable. Sylvia was a wonderful hostess who took time to orient us to the town and provide us with maps and wonderful recommendations for the best places to eat. She even had sodas, bottled water, and a bottle of wine in the fridge! Since we brought our dog crate along, we were able to leave the dogs in the cottage. I would certainly stay here again if I ever got the opportunity to return to Carmel.
Response from the owner Thanks, Linda I'm so glad you were happy here. We welcome dogs and want our guests to feel like locals while they're here. The extra goodies we supply make it feel less like a hotel and more like a private home away from home. Please come again, Sylvia
“Loved this private gem”
My second visit was as perfect as the first time and maybe better when I stayed this September. And like before, Syl greeted me and made sure that I had everything I needed to feel comfortable, and it was like I had my own little slice of Paradise. I flew alaska airlines on a direct flight into Monterey from San Diego at night and once I left the airport, it was 10 minutes away. I had not gone to the store but there were plenty of snacks and wine for me. My friend from Napa drove down with her dog the next day and stayed the day. She found the private cottage so enchanting and loved the whimsical art outside on the private patio, and the quiet neighborhood and back lot were perfect to walk the dog. The studio is artful and super comfortable, the wi-fi was easy to connect the laptop to the Internet, the cable TV was centrally located to watch from bed or from the comfy leather couch. There was plenty of storage for unpacking and keeping my personals at hand in a built-in cabinet in the bath, and a nice closet in the main area. It was very peaceful and lovely to stay at the cottage that Syl made so comfortable. I felt right at home and didn't want to leave except to take a quick run downtown Carmel and it was easy to hop onto Hwy 1 to get around everywhere else in the Monterey Bay. I usually dined out and then warmed up the leftovers for lunch in the microwave. All in all, it was a fantastic spot for me and I can highly recommend it to a couple, a small family, or just one person like myself. I have business contacts in that area and it was great to have a place to land and call my own for a few days. I have not found anything I like better for the price and will not look further.
