Our quaint, thoughtfully-stocked 300 sq ft cottage is located steps from the ocean (5 min walk), yet tucked away behind our home, affording guests ample privacy, easy parking and all the amenities of home. Sip wine on the patio after a day of adventures while listening to the surf, and sleep soundly on our new king Saatva eco-hybrid mattress.
Our 1 bed/1 bath, studio-style cottage is offered fully furnished with kitchenette, organic fair trade coffee, selection of teas, and high quality organic breakfast items provided. If you have food allergies or dietary limitations of any kind, please let us know in advance, we're happy to accommodate you! Please note: we recently gutted the kitchenette and it now has 2 gas burners for cooking, a sink, and fridge. Due to the small space and limited availability of petite-sized appliances, we no longer have an oven or freezer. In place of an oven, we've just added a well-rated Breville countertop oven, which is large enough to roast a turkey, make a pizza, or do a little baking, should the mood strike. However, if you plan to do a lot of cooking during your stay, you’ll likely prefer to seek out a property with a full-sized kitchen. Hundreds of tv channels On Demand shows and movies Secured Wifi Charming private patio Complimentary toiletries Iron/ironing board Hair dryer All linens included Dishes, pots, pans, + oil, spices, etc. Organic coffee/sugar/half & half Eco Friendly "Luxury Firm" King mattress Beach chairs & beach towels provided Pet Friendly* *PET POLICY: Well-behaved pets are welcome - we are dog lovers! However, based on over 9 years of hosting experience, we now charge a $25 cleaning fee for pets over 15 lbs, or multiple pets. This is not collected up front (via Airbnb) - you can pay the cleaning fee during your stay. (Our policy is too specific for us to build it into our Airbnb fee collection.) The cottage comfortably sleeps 2. If your party is larger (i.e. a 3rd person, or a child) please contact us in advance to discuss arrangements, we can stash a twin air mattress or Pack 'n Play and extra linens in the closet prior to your arrival. Location: 5 minute walk to Asilomar State Beach, Asilomar Conference Ctr, and the recreation trail (Bring your binoculars - almost guaranteed sightings of otters and seals, and lately, whale spouts!) 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive to downtown Pacific Grove (On Monday afternoon/evenings there is a fantastic little Farmers Market) 10 minute drive to Oldtown Monterey/Wharf Approximately 3 miles from Cannery Row/Monterey Bay Aquarium Less than 1 mile from the 17 mile drive gates into Pebble Beach 1/3 mile from Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course 20ish minute drive to Carmel Valley/Wine Country 30ish minute drive to INCREDIBLY scenic Big Sur Bring your bicycles - our mild climate and stunning scenery make the Monterey Peninsula an ideal spot to explore on 2 wheels. We *LOVE* hosting Airbnb guests - making friends from around the world, and close to home. Whether you opt to stay with us, or elsewhere, I'm confident you'll enjoy your trip to the stunning Monterey Peninsula. You should know a couple things.... 1. We are a pet-friendly property - if you suffer from pet allergies you should know there may have been a guest pup in the cottage prior to your reservation. Though we do clean the cottage thoroughly between guests, it is likely that allergens are still present. Ultimately - we want you to be comfortable, therefore we *STRONGLY* discourage booking if you have pet allergies - there are so many lovely options in the area and most are not pet-friendly. 2. Approximately once per week (usually Friday mornings) we have our weekly yard service. Sometimes the maintenance is relatively quiet (raking, trimming, etc.) and sometimes the situation is far more noisy (leaf blowers, weed wackers, fence repair, and the like). 3. Finally.... Our calendar is updated daily and is indeed accurate. If the dates you want are not available it is because they're already booked by another guest. I'm not sure how everyone plans so far in advance, but it is not unusual for us to be booked 8+ months in advance.
Hands down, the best part about our 'hood is the proximity to the ocean. You can (usually) hear it, and smell it from our house, and see its amazing beauty within a brief walk. On a clear night, the sunsets are breathtaking.
  • Super comfy bed! Nice amenities for breakfast. Very close to all amenities on the peninsula.

    Trevor2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This accommodation is among the best that airbnb had. Love in every detail, top location, quiet, very clean, just beautiful. We would come back anytime.

    Angelika2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Would love to stay at their place again next time. Thank you.

    Dee2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for the wonderful accommodations. We enjoyed our stay very much. I used the ice machine, such a great idea. The cookies were amazing and having coffee and breakfast food was such a treat. Jamie, John Paul and Sparky

    Jamie Ann2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed here and brought Sammy, our cat. Erika welcomed us with a nice breakfast of homemade goodies and the best chocolate chip cookies that I ever tasted (recipe in back of a thorough informational binder), and a really sweet personalized welcome sign. The entry to the cottage had a wonderful landscape and stone walkway that opened up to a beautiful courtyard with tasteful patio furniture and clear directional signage. The entry to the cottage is beautiful with a split door. The inside is bright and cozy with a beach seascape theme, with light blue and white accents and natural wood. The kitchenette is small, yet fully stocked and well organized. The bathroom is generous in size, and airy. The cottage has its own private courtyard with patio furniture that complements the landscape. The bed is one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in and all of the furniture was comfortable. Our kitty (a large friendly and curious orange tabby), hopped on the windowsill and broke a piece off, and although I was horrified and offered to pay for repairs, Erika was gracious and made it seem like an easy repair. In summary, this is a wonderful place to stay and Erika is a terrific host with thoughtful attention to details. We will definitely return!

    Karen2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a stunning find! So cozy and private, with many thoughtful touches. The chocolate-chip cookie welcome was awesome! The beach is very close, and the neighborhood is very quiet and restful. The bed felt a little soft when we climbed in, but it was wonderfully supportive. The heater, though compact, warmed up the whole place in the time it took to brew a pot of coffee in the morning.

    Lk2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is just how it looks in the pictures. Nice private outside sitting area also. You can hear the ocean from the cottage. Easy walk to the Pacific Ocean. The location is perfect. Easy to get to everything you want to do. Loved sitting outside having our coffee in the morning and hearing the waves crash on the beach. We will be back.

    Elizabeth2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, private, and charming place. We have a smooth pleasant time here. Minutes from the beach. We had everything we needed.

    Stay in our Carmel Rustic Cabin along with your FurKid (see dog fee below) while shopping, visiting local wineries and restaurants or just walking your dog off-leash along Carmel's white sandy beach. Hidden in the woods, our rustic cabin is like a treehouse with all the amenities and minutes from downtown and the beaches. FYI the coast drive is now accessible between here and LA, but may be shut down during stormy weather, so be sure to follow local weather reports or just call Caltrans.
    You'll find our Rustic Cabin like a Treehouse is perfect for two . . . Simple. Comfortable and Cozy (250 sq ft). PLUS, the cabin is very quiet, very private, and equipped with a small "kitchenette," super high-speed WIFI for streaming and cable TV. We are Pet Friendly and would love to entertain your beloved Fido, but PLEASE NOTE . . . we are now charging $25 extra for one to two small to mid-size dogs. Dog surcharge will be added after you've booked. We also ask that you bring the appropriate dog bedding as well as food and water dishes. Deer and other wild animals are often around at night, so don't be spooked if your dog decides to growl a bit. Even squirrels will set our dogs off. We provide coffee and tea to get you started in the morning. No kitchen is available, but there is a microwave, small refrigerator, kettle, coffee pot, toaster, and dishes - all ideal for take out. You'll be located on the same property as our family home, but totally detached from the house (about 50 steps down from the parking area) and with no other guests to disturb you. For those of you who have allergies, please keep in mind that Pets have been in the room previously. Also, because we're located in the woods, pollens may be a problem for you as well. If you're visiting California's central coast for the first time, you'll find Carmel and the surrounding area an idyllic haven boasting nearly 100 miles of spectacular shoreline - described as the 'greatest meeting of land and sea.' The unbridled beauty of Carmel and Monterey County's landscape and the mild, year-round weather offer endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Family-centered activities abound and there truly is something for everyone.
    The cabin is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood facing the Pebble Beach Forest Conservancy adjacent to Pescadero, a little used road where neighbors like to walk their dogs, or where cyclists test their strength on a grueling hill full of switchbacks. Want to look out on the forest? Want to watch birds whiz by with squirrels nearby? You can, yet we're so close to town, it takes 10 minutes to walk to the post office. Also, you might like to know Carmel has been voted one of the Top Ten Dog Friendly places in the country. WOOF! So, bring your dog. Please check the CALENDAR tab above to determine whether we've been booked.
  • Cozy little cabin in the trees. This was a very peaceful spot and we really enjoyed our stay here. Sitting on the balcony with a beer after a long drive was delightfully relaxing. Close to everything Carmel has to offer, but just enough off the beaten track. All in all, a great find.

    Judy2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • We booked this trip as a short get-away from the hustle-and-bustle of the Bay Area and demanding jobs. Tom's place was exactly what we needed. It is a quiet neighborhood not far from downtown but far enough to offer peace and tranquility; it was the best of both worlds. The cabin itself is on a hillside down some steps from the main house. It is very private and surrounded by lush trees and plants. There is a cute little deck facing down the hill to enjoy coffee and snacks. The cabin offers basic amenities, which is all we needed, including a very comfy bed. It was very clean and quaint. Tom is very kind and a great host. We love this place and can't wait to return!

    Victoria2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great and cute accommodation. You have to go down some stairs in Order to reach the housing but Tom installed some lights which makes it very easy to find. We enjoyed our stay.

    Jessica2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very rustic and charming place surrounded by nature. Friendly host. Close proximity to center of town. A bit small but we just needed a place to sleep so it was perfect. Highly recommended and would love to come back again.

    Huey2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Tom’s cabin was great! Parking was easy. The step to the cabin were sturdy. The cabin itself was clean and everything worked as expected. The town is 5 minutes drive from the cabin, where there’s lots to do!

    Pradeep2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I stayed at Tom’s awesome cabin. We had a great time, look forward to coming back :)

    Kyle2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was lovely. It overlooks trees and a creek and there is nothing h like waking up to that view. It’s very peaceful and quiet yet a 5 min drive to town. It’s cozy and warm, everything you would want for a get away, particularly considering that they are pet friendly. We love our stay and highly recommend it!

    Andrea2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Celebrated my girlfriend's 22nd birthday here and we loved how close it is to all the Carmel activities. It is super cozy with a lot of convenient touches in mind. Also not too far from Monterey! All in all a great experience

And you will sleep well on the king-size organic wool/latex mattress... it has been named the most comfortable bed in the world by numerous guests! Enjoy your private entrance/suite/shower with a sky window that opens to the warmth of the sun. If you feel like dancing, enjoy the eclectic vinyl collection with everything from Miles Davis to The Tubes. Does this sound too good to be true? Nope, it's really that great!

It is a Dwell-inspired, eclectic blend of Japanese Zen and California design overlooking the garden, trees and the Pacific Ocean - a truly magical, romantic, fun space. This is a relaxed coastal "locals" experience. Stay in and rest or venture out into the wild. Whatever you feel like doing, I am happy to help with suggestions for everything from the best hikes to the best food. Please note I am a five star cleaner and am now using disinfecting sprays and wipes with every clean, so you can have a worry free stay. I want you to have a wonderful time while you're my guests. I have lived in Pacific Grove for 16 years and am happy to help you create a memorable, lovely holiday. Coastal walks, white sand beaches, best local restaurants and music, best free parking and favorite Monterey Bay Aquarium exhibits, rugged Big Sur hikes, etc... What are you waiting for? PLEASE DO NOT BOOK ONE NIGHT RESERVATIONS WITHOUT ASKING IN ADVANCE. I rarely accept one night reservations on weekends or accept one night reservations more than a week or two (depending on season) in advance or if there is an empty night between bookings. Note pricing varies according to seasons, weekends and special events. I have an awesome 19 year old three-legged blind, deaf dog named Zeus and we both love having furry friends visit. I accept pets at my discretion (please tell me about your pup when you book) and there is a $35 pet fee payable on arrival. I have a leash only rule in the back gardens because they are full of exotic, fragile succulents and prickly cactus. Also, please pick up after your pup and use designated areas in garden. CA Dream Suite has both a California King size bed and twin bed. I accept up to three people. There is a $45 fee per person, after two people. I offer coffee and a selection of teas. Wi-fi is strong indoors and outside. Outdoor garden patio with deck chairs and a picnic table. All linens and towels included. Please note... I do NOT iron the cotton bed sheets. They are clean but may be wrinkled. Garage with washer and dryer and room for your bicycle, golf clubs, surfboard or extra stuff, upon request. Trader Joe's and Safeway grocery stores are 2 minutes away, Whole Foods is 10 minutes away.

Great spas, discount for local massage (massage can even be in the bungalow so you don't have to drive) Pacific Grove monarch butterfly sanctuary. Public transportation nearby. Weather: Summer is coastal fog and sunny. Fall is our Indian Summer – our best weather. Winter is the local's season – sometimes crystal clear and moderate, sometimes with great storms, big waves and no tourists. Spring is a little bit of all of the above, sometimes windy and lots of flowers in the garden! Legal and licensed rental: In order to accept reservations and host guests, the City of Pacific Grove requires that we possess a transient use license. Airbnb will collect transient occupancy taxes from each of our guests, and this amount is calculated separately. City of Pacific Grove Transient Use License #0390. Please note this space is marketed as private space but because it is attached to the main house, it is permitted as a room share. This is unique and important since May 2020, only owner occupied residences will be legal in Pacific Grove. If you book a place that isn't owner occupied (unless coastal commission) after May 2020 it will be shut down by the city of Pacific Grove. Be careful what you book!
    This is a safe, serene neighborhood with lots of really nice people. My neighbors love Airbnb due to considerate guests. There are a lot of small children in the neighborhood so DRIVE 10 MPH in cul-de-sac. Thanks! Make sure you have read instructions and are clear exactly where to park. Neighborhood peace is a really cool thing..
  • Beautiful and convenient location for exploring a lovely little sea side town. Just a short drive to Big Sur , which is simply gorgeous . Thoughtful touches , spotless, with a gorgeous view. As a record collector I very much enjoyed waking up in the morning and putting on a record. Would absolutely visit again .

    Koty2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah’s place is in a very convenient location between Monterey and Carmel with a quiet and private space simultaneously. It is comfortable with a nice view and outdoor space. The shower and record player were both unique and fun aspects of the stay!

    Julie2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A very pretty studio is a very pretty location. Had everything we needed. Wonderful garden for sitting outside. The host has detailed suggestions for local tourism, which was very thoughtful.

    Nicholas2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Had high hopes for this stay and they were realized! Sarah is great and her place is adorable. She was filled with local tips that were right on - we loved meandering around Pacific Grove (“PG”), Monterey and Carmel - and we had a wonderful road trip to Big Sur. Julia’s for dinner; Lover’s Point for sunrise, Aquarium anytime. You’ll love it! We had a wonderful mother-daughter weekend. Highly recommend.

    Amy2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very personable while mindful of boundaries, meticulous without being obsessive , gracious and a wealth of local knowledge. Couldn't have been nicer and more helpful.

    Linda2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend Sarah’s “California Dreaming” Bungalow. An amazing location with a view of the Pacific Ocean. Conveniently located for access to the many Pebble Beach area golf courses and the Monterey Bay.

    Richard2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had an awesome time in beautiful Monterey Bay! The aquarium, cannery row, and old fisherman's wharf were about a 10 minute drive away from the airbnb. The space itself was clean and cozy. We loved waking up to the ocean view and having tea by the window or hanging out in the zen garden. We also enjoyed the record selection! My husband really enjoyed the shower with the sunroof because it felt like we were showering in the forest haha! We slept really well during our trip because the space was free from any distractions. Miss Sarah was so accommodating and a generous host that we won't hesitate recommending or booking with her again!:)

    Faith2020-02-04T00:00:00Z

    This charming historic studio was once owned by American author John Steinbeck. It's been featured in several articles including “20 Romantic AirBnB Getaways”, “Get Cultured While You Sleep at These AirBnBs That are Historical Landmarks” and in Airbnb Magazine's June/July 2019 edition. As of May 27, 2020, there is a 30-night minimum stay for this cottage. Special rates will apply - 65% off the daily rate and no city occupancy tax.
    Currently, there is construction at our next door neighbor's house. The work is being done Monday - Friday during the day. Please be aware that there will be some noise during the day. 'I bought a small house and garden in Pacific Grove...' (John Steinbeck: A Life in Letters). American author John Steinbeck wrote these words to a friend about this charming house he called home in the 1940s. This cozy studio retreat has one bedroom with a queen bed and and a sitting area, a spacious full bathroom, and a fully stocked kitchen. There is cable TV and wireless internet. The studio is approximately 350 square feet. It is original 1920's architecture and has short doorways throughout the studio. Taller guests will need to mind their heads passing through entry-ways. It is one of three cottages on the property and has a unique and rich literary history, having belonged to John Steinbeck in the early 1940's. He used it as his writing studio and worked on novels including The Sea of Cortez while living here. It has been renovated to pay homage to the period and history of the property. It has a masculine and sophisticated, yet romantic feel.
    The property is in a quiet residential neighborhood in Pacific Grove. It offers plenty of street parking. As for the city, Pacific Grove has been called “Butterfly Town U.S.A.,” “The Most Romantic City in the U.S.,” “A Dreamy California Destination, ” as well as an idyllic place to get married, to honeymoon or to just hang out. Some of it is self-proclaimed, some the acclaim of people who have actually visited Pacific Grove. You will find Pacific Grove on the very tip of the scenic, tree-shrouded Monterey Peninsula with a rocky coastline and an ambiance of charm, grace and beauty. Founded in the 1870s as a Methodist summer retreat, Pacific Grove still bears the look and feel of yesteryear. As you stroll the residential streets admiring the charm of home after home, you will notice little plaques on many of the homes that bear the name of the original owner and the year in which it was built. To qualify for a plaque from the Heritage Society of Pacific Grove, a structure must look like it did when it was originally built. Among its visitors are brightly colored orange-and-black Monarch butterflies, who overwinter in Pacific Grove after traveling up to 2,000 miles, arriving by the thousands starting in October, peaking around Christmas and departing by March. Besides its scenic beauty and idyllic neighborhoods, Pacific Grove offers an eclectic downtown experience, with small boutiques, gift shops, art galleries, antique stores and more. Other vibrant shopping areas are along Central Avenue at the entrance to Pacific Grove from Cannery Row and at the top of Forest Avenue on Forest Hill.
  • Great location,easy communication,unique decoration,beautiful garden!

    Yuchen2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay in the Writers Studio. Everything we needed to be comfortable was close at hand. We loved the decor and we were just a short downhill walk to many restaurants and activities. I would definitely stay again. Communication was always quick, friendly and easy. Thanks again Kevin and Vicky 🤩

    Nicole And Michael2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • The Steinbeck Writing Studio is a MUST DO for any John Steinbeck reader/fan. Even if you aren’t a Steinbeck fan, the studio is a perfect quiet retreat for an individual or couple. It has an eclectic charm that makes you feel so cozy and comfortable, that you’ll want to curl up and read all day. The location is fantastic and very walkable. We walked all over Pacific Grove, Cannery Row and Monterey. We never drove the car once after we arrived. Kevin and Vicky were very responsive and thoughtful hosts. We would highly recommend the studio to anyone! 5 stars all day!

    Blake2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay in the Steinbeck cottage. Easy check-in, and close to the many attractions and restaurants the Monterey peninsula offers.

    Hunter2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place was wonderful, centrally located, good access to parking, great Wi-Fi, and all the charm we could handle.

    Bill2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is an AirBnb you will absolute want to book. Every single detail you could want or think to put into a place Kevin and Vicky did. A book full of tips, suggestions, and reviews of different places around town. The perfect location to access those places as well as a perfect cottage to retreat to after the long day. I loved reading why other people had come to the cottage with the journal left for guests to write in. The place itself was spotless and stocked full of all the things that make you feel at home. I really couldn’t of wanted more or had a better time staying at this AirBnb. Thank you guys again so much!

    Christina2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Not just a historical delight but an adorable and highly functional space. Excellent communication and zero complications or issues! We would enthusiastically stay again. Thank you!

    Theresa2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Cute studio in a great location. Perfect for our short vacation. The place was very clean and cozy. Kevin & Vicky were great hosts! We would definitely come back :)

  • Great place, great location! Close to Monterey and Carmel and has great beach access. The place was clean and Li was very respectful of our privacy and space!

    Hannah2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lu’s place is in such a great location . Right in the gated community of Pebble beach . It’s on 17 mile highway and she provides 2 Monterey Bay Aquarium tickets!

    Kathy2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lu’s place is cosy and peaceful. Lu provided a number of thoughtful touches that made the stay at Pebble beach amazing, such as the lovely aquarium passes! You will also have access to a kitchen as well as washer/dryer; definitely great for long-term travellers. With a car, the place is strategically located so that you’ll be able to explore Monterey sufficiently.

    Nur2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed for 2 nights with a friend from college. It was our first time in the area and we loved the location! The aquarium passes were an added treat. Also that we were already in Pebble Beach and could do the 17 mile drive was a fun opportunity. I would definitely stay again, probably for a few extra nights and do some outdoor sports.

    Michelle2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely bookmarking this listing. Lu provides a perfectly cozy spot in a truly special place. 10/10 will return, wish I could buy it and stay forever! (:

    Tracie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Li is an outstanding host. The space is lovely and just what we needed. If you find yourself in the area we highly recommend! Thank you so much:) Taylor and Brooke.

    Taylor2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, great location, and free passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium is a plus. The location was very quiet and easy to get to.

    Aaron2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The Suit is ok, perfect for two, Pebble Beach is beautiful, the aquarium is a great plus for the experience. Thank you Li

    Do you want to experience the Monterey Peninsula like a local? Do you need a centrally located home to enjoy the Concours d'Elegance, the AT&T golf tournament, or any of the other special events here? If so, consider staying at the Blue House, where Lover's Point and the Pacific Ocean are right down the street! You'll be close to the aquarium, downtown Monterey, with a short drive to both Big Sur and Carmel.
    Our cottage is cozy, warm and inviting. It has an open floor plan that meshes well with the white oak floors. There are large picture windows with a bench to take advantage of the corner lot. Our kitchen is outfitted with modern appliances, a wine fridge and granite countertops. The bedrooms are of ample size with comfortable furnishings. There is a queen sized bed which is latex mattress and a full sized bed in the other. If there’s a 5th guest, they are able to sleep on the couch, though it’s not a pullout bed. Each room has a sitting area for quiet reading. Lounge on the sofa and light a fire in the Carmel stone fireplace.
    Our home is perfectly situated to allow access to all that the Monterey Peninsula has to offer. The ocean is very close and is visible down the street; so close that you can hear crashing waves and barking sea lions. Both downtown Pacific Grove and Lovers Point are just a stroll away. If you are staying in PG on a Monday, cruise down to Central Avenue. There you will find a quaint farmers market full of local fresh vegetables, fruit, flowers, fish and more. Our neighborhood is quiet and residential, and our neighbors are very friendly. The Blue House is great for relaxing with family and friends.
  • Beautifully maintained historical architecture in a sweet sweet little city. Also very cozy to be in.

  • Our stay at Maria’s house was great! The house is cozy and has just about anything you would need! Maria communicated super well, and responded quickly. She really laid out all of the little things about the house. The location is great for a quick trip to downtown PG, Monterey, or Carmel. We enjoyed our stay!

  • Maria's house was adorable, spacious, beautiful, and clean. My colleague and i stayed here for a 2-day conference and enjoyed having a quiet, comfortable, cozy place to come back to in the evenings. We enjoyed the big kitchen, all the light coming in the front room in the morning, and the clean, open bedrooms. Thank you for an outstanding stay!

    Patrick2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • For the best Monterey Peninsula experience, our choice is a place like this that’s a short walk to downtown. Great spots to walk and run along the ocean as well The amenities and cleanliness were above average. I would highly recommend it.

  • Wonderful place! Funky and cool.

    Toby2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Elizabeth's over NYE. The cabin was rustic and very cosy with all amenities we needed. One small issue, we were not able to lock the bottom studio door during our stay. Regardless, Elizabeth was really quick to respond and provide support remotely.

    Olivier2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the location and the nice touches - it was a great escape and still close to everything Carmel had to offer. We’ll definitely stay again on our next trip to the area.

    Shawn2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really cozy and unique cabin with views overlooking trees and sounds of the ocean. Our Thanksgiving stay here coincided with some cold and rainy weather but the house and little downstairs apartment were easy to keep warm. We had a couple of issues come up and the owner was super responsive and quick to help which we very much appreciated. My only note to visitors is that the steps down to the apartment are potentially slippy (in the rain and dark). It wasn't a problem for us but it might be something to take into consideration if you're traveling with older people or little ones. Thank you so much Elizabeth - we hope to return one day soon!

    Hannah Craddick2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay. The house was perfect for our needs. It was warm, cozy, and comfortable. The weather cooperated so walking into Carmel was easy and only took 10-15 minutes, depending on our pace.

    Renee2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend Elizabeth's home. Comfortable, cozy, clean and a 10 minute walk to the center of town. Couldn't ask for more!

    Located in a separate cottage on the property, this is one of our largest rooms featuring a King Size Bed. THE ROOM DOESN'T HAVE SHOWER. WE HAVE TOILET BOWL & WASH BASIN in the room.

We also offer Complimentary Coffee in lobby. The resort also offers a Common barbeque with a spacious sitting area to relax.
    FOR SHOWER, the guest would have to head to Carmel Beach or the nearest gym in the area. The room has Toilet & wash basin.
    The property is located in Residential area, so strict rules are followed on the quiet hours.
  • One of the first things I will say about Carmel's place (that I was not expecting) was a daily cleaning service. It was a pleasant surprise. Even though we did not take advantage of it daily it was nice to know that in the middle of our stay we were able to get some basic items taking care of. The room is pretty spacious with a dresser and a futon for sitting or additional sleeping. A heater and a fan was provided. I brought a night light just in case the room was extremely dark but it had motion lights so we could see when moving around during the night. Full size refrigerator. A hot plates for cooking, microwave. The place was very welcoming quiet and surreal. Most of all the parking was very convenient. Overall it was a five-star Cottage experience for our family.

    Darise Sanker2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Decent place. A bit weird that it doesn't have a shower/bathroom, but has a full kitchen. But we were warned and ready, and enjoyed our quick stopover.

    Andrey2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Booking a hotel at Airbnb is also a different experience. The independent resort is comfortable, quiet and very nice.

    Kevin2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and spacious. Travelers who are highly sensitive to light and noise might find that the room is not quite dark enough to sleep without a mask and earplugs. They had people with leaf blowers working in the morning, and there was a surprising amount of noise from the road nearby as well, but it was generally quite a pleasant and peaceful spot. I suspect most people would not be bothered by these things.

    Our private detached guest cottage is super charming with its wood burning fireplace, large deck and stunning ocean views. We are a short distance to The Lodge, famous 17 Mile Drive & Seddon Cove. We are located in the exclusive Estate section of Pebble Beach. Centrally located- 5 min to Carmel Beach, 7 min to Carmel, 10 min to Monterey/Pacific Grove, 30 min to Big Sur. Non refundable 7 night booking required for US Open and Concours. Best value in Pebble, walk to Pebble Beach Lodge.
    This is a super charming and very private guest cottage, approximately 1000 sq ft, that is fully enclosed by a privacy fence with it's own entry gate located at the back of our nearly one acre Pebble Beach estate. The entire property spans a gently sloping hill that affords beautiful views of the ocean, Point Lobos and Pebble Beach. Pull through our electric gate and up the hill to your own little piece of paradise. The cottage has one very large bedroom with a super comfy king size bed, a fully stocked kitchen (complimentary tea and coffee), full bathroom (shower only- no tub), and washer and dryer. For additional guests (up to 6) there is a full size sofa bed and two twin cots. Private parking next to the cottage for two cars. The cottage has Wi-fi, Apple TV and cable TV. This is truly the best place to stay in the area, and we offer the best value. You won't be disappointed.
    We live in the most beautiful and exclusive area of Pebble Beach, surrounded by other beautiful gated estates. We are central to everything, yet it also feels like we are a million miles from civilization. You are a 7 minute drive to Carmel, and 10-12 minutes from Monterey and Pacific Grove. We regularly see deer in our neighborhood, as well as all sorts of other wildlife and birds. The star gazing on a clear night is insanely beautiful, and when the wind is blowing just the right way, you can hear the waves crashing on the beach as you lie in bed or relax on the deck. There are sea lions and otters down at the beaches. Point Lobos is an amazing place to hike and is a short 15 minute drive from us. You can walk to The Lodge as well as a beautiful private beach (about a 20 -30 minute walk down the hill), and we are just a few blocks from the famous 17 mile drive.

    Less than one mile away from the Carmel River Beach and the modern conveniences of Carmel Crossroads Shopping Center, yet ages away from noises and frets! A perfect getaway for a couple, an inspiration for a writer, and a hideout for anyone seeking peace and rest. Romantic yet practical, this studio is well stocked with all the amenities (including a laundry room). Professionally designed and decorated, the studio offers a balance of urban sophistication and rural quietness. TOT Reg # 000593
    A previous guest from Boston said it all: “Felt like a home away from home! Loved walking into this comfy cottage after a day stomping out and about! The kitchen had everything we needed, including a toaster oven, microwave, full size fridge, and a range with a really large oven. Dish TV offered plenty of viewing choices, but the deep quiet of Carmel at night was even better. A huge tree outside overhang the skylight in the middle of the cottage, lending to the cottage atmosphere. The bed was wonderfully comfortable with the memory foam topper, and we slept like babies. The Rio Grill (fabulous food and atmosphere) is only half a mile away, as are CVS and a huge 24 hour Safeway, if needed. Would love to go back!”
    Quiet street, only people who live here drive by. No other traffic.
  • A super location for viewing Carmel and enjoying the beautiful coastline. It was a delight to look forward to going to our cozy ‘home’ everyday after our tourist wanderings!

    Alicia2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a great hidden gem! From the beginning, Grant was so timely with his responses and the directions on how to enter his place were spot on. Loved the motion detector lights to the studio, it helped us feel so comfortable! When we looked around we found the studio to be very well appointed, so clean and inviting! The place was a perfect getaway and SO close to Ocean Ave and 17 Mile Drive. Thank you so much to Grant and his family for a wonderful 3 night stay.

The studio is cute as can be and extremely comfortable. The kitchenette is perfect for a quick meal, we picked stuff up at the near by Safeway and whipped up light breakfast and take out lunches. Grant has thought of everything in this little studio, nice touches that make this place feel like home. Highly recommend staying here, and in fact we will book here again when we return to Carmel.

  • Beautiful space with tons of natural light, and welcoming, homey feel. The little private patio is perfect for a morning cup of coffee, watching b the sun filter in through the trees that surround the property. Communicating with Grant was a breeze and very friendly. The guest house was clean and cozy. There is easy parking right in front of the house, and it's a quick drive to both beautiful beaches and delicious restaurants. Definitely hope to stay on the comfy king bed next time I visit Carmel!

  • My husband and I stayed for an extended weekend and Grant's place was perfect for our needs. There is a delightful private outdoor patio space where you can enjoy the stars at night or take in the fresh air during the day. The location was very convenient for our explorations (hiking at Lobos Point, 17 mile drive and the Monterey Aquarium.) Highly recommend.

    Deb2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing find in Carmel. Grant is an extremely hospitable host and his studio is the perfect place to stay. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

    John2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Grant's place is well-named. We needed a peaceful getaway and it provided just that. As many have noted, Grant is a gracious host. He is attentive without being intrusive. The space is lovely and quiet with everything you need. The location is great. We walked to Carmel Beach and into town. Highly recommend it!

  • I stayed at Grant’s for three nights. I was so pleasantly surprised- the space was even better than I expected! Big and sunny and clean! Stay here!! You won’t regret it!!

    Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, United States

    Nature surrounds you in this spacious, private setting. You’ll be nestled between the sea and the trees with ocean views in front and towering pines behind. The floor plan is ideal for being together or apart with two separate en suite bedrooms and a living/dining area between. A spacious patio with ample seating is a great outdoor option. Video streaming and remote working are easy thanks to our 1 gigabit Internet connection. House is professionally cleaned with an EPA-approved cleanser.
    If you're looking for the perfect blend of raw nature and sophistication then you've found the right spot. Beautiful, unique and spacious home with gorgeous ocean views perched amidst the trees in a quiet, private neighborhood. Luxuriate in the spa-quality bathrooms or simply relax on the comfy sofa, enjoying the beautiful view of Point Lobos and Carmel River Beach, streaming a film or warming yourself by the wood-burning fireplace. There's a patio for unwinding or enjoying a glass of wine. The charm of downtown Carmel by the Sea is just a 20-minute walk away and another 10 minutes to the beach from there. The return walk is mostly uphill so you may want to take an Uber back. We have installed window air conditioners in both bedrooms and the living/dining area in the event that temperatures spike in Carmel over the summer. The home also features vented skylights, which can be opened by tapping the electronic controls next to the rear doors (the skylights have rain sensors, so will close automatically if water is detected).
    Carmel by the Sea is one of the three most romantic cities in the world along with Venice and Paris. You will experience the magical splendor of the area as you stroll through the neighborhood into town where you will enjoy the art galleries, shopping and world class restaurants. From there you can enjoy the incredible coastline and white sand beach of Carmel with dolphins and otters. You can also enjoy wine tastings in Carmel Valley or take the majestic 17 mile drive, which is minutes away. Just to the south is Big Sur and Highway 1 with some of the most stunning cliffs and coastal vistas the earth has to offer. Or simply take a day trip up the coast to San Francisco, which is only two hours to the north. The world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium is just a 10-minute drive away and well worth a visit.

For two days we made trips in to Carmel and Big Sur before we drove down to Malibu beach through Big Sur for the third time. The place was spotless and no hassle whatsoever. Certainly, you’re going to this area I would surely recommend her place.

  • What a charming place to stay when visiting Carmel-by-the-Sea. Very spacious, cozy, and comfortable for two people. Thoughtful amenities, wonderful garden area to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail, and a lovely walk to town and the beach. My husband and I had a perfect stay. Carmel is a magical place.

    Dominique2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Stay here if you want a thoughtful and magical stay somewhere that was made just for you. The attention to detail, easy access, and location are all you could ever ask for. I'll be back if the place isnt booked!

    Angelika2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The Le Petite Papillon was the perfect location to enjoy an absolutely exquisite trip to lovely Carmel. Right off Ocean Ave you are nestled in a gorgeous neighborhood a few blocks from downtown. Our hosts were so kind and thoughtful with their suggestions and hospitality, from trails to hike to all the best eating they made sure our stay was perfect. The room was full of lovely touches and had a true Carmel feel. They thought of everything you might need or may have forgotten. This long weekend was a truly relaxing get away for us and we can’t recommend the Le Petite Papillon enough for your stay.

    Joseph2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The warmth, convenience and coziness of Le Petite Papillon was only outshone by the warmth, thoughtfulness and kindness of David and Brenda. Our anniversary getaway in Carmel was ever more special because they made it so. A comfy bed awaits you at the end of a candlelit path. Their gardens... clearly a labor of love as is their attention to detail. They were even kind enough to ask in advance and had a French press with freshly ground coffee, a bottle of wine and even my dairy free creamer waiting for us! The space itself is charming.... well appointed and conveniently located near the delightful downtown shops and restaurants; David and Brenda make it easy with plenty of local tips. Truly though- a special stay because of their extra efforts, quick and detailed communication and kindness. Truly a five star stay and hosts took It off the charts. We will be back!!

    Alison2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • We just returned from a 3 night stay at the beautiful Le Petite Papillon! The house was exactly as described, and very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the extra touches and thoughtful welcome gifts the hosts left out for us. It was so simple to rent this charming house, and we loved how close it is to downtown Carmel. Truly a wonderful get away, and the nicest hosts you could ask for. Thank you so much!

    Ann2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • This gorgeous studio has everything a couple needs to find rest and relaxation. Beautiful and clean with extra touches that are far beyond anything I have ever experienced. If you are in Carmel and want a piece of heaven - look no further!

  • What a treat to stay at this place! Communication was quick and respectful! The place was sparkling clean and the bed was soooo comfortable! The location on the 17-mile drive was AMAZING! Do yourself a favor and stay at this airb&b if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful stay!

    Nima2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Luna's guesthouse was great! Maybe the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in and the place was ridiculously clean. No issues with the security gate, just give them the address, and check in was so easy with a keypad door lock. Highly recommend three things: 1) sit out on the small patio under the trees and listen to the birds in the morning 2) arriving in daylight, the area is in the forest so streets are very dark! 3) Staying here! Great place and will definitely be back. :)

A sanctuary of tranquility and charm awaken your senses with a continental breakfast, unwind in the evening with your fellow guests in the parlor. Local residents and visitors alike refer to Pacific Grove as “America’s last Hometown” and the “Butterfly Capital of California”, due to the annual migration of the Monarch butterflies. Pacific Grove is known for well kept Victorian homes and amazing seascapes along the scenic Sunset Drive. Pacific Grove evokes a timeless air feel from its historic establishments and its classic Main Street, the USA feel to its breathtaking slices of nature with its remarkable attractions in and around the Monterey area of California.

Museums The Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History gives children and adults insight into the ever-evolving story of the Monterey Peninsula, with both human artifacts and exhibits on the flora and fauna of the area. Point Pinos Lighthouse Visitors can also learn what life was like when Pacific Grove was remote and wild by visiting the Point Pinos Lighthouse, the oldest continually operating lighthouse on the West Coast. This lighthouse sits on the northernmost tip of the Monterey Bay Peninsula; its beacon has flashed nightly as a guide and warning to ships off the rocky California coast since February 1, 1855. Monarch Butterflies Pacific Grove's status as one of the top Monarch butterfly wintering-over spots has procured it the nickname of "Butterfly Town, USA." If you're fortunate enough to be in Pacific Grove during the fall or winter, you will be witness to one of nature's most incredible spectacles: the annual migration of the Monarch butterflies. Tens of thousands of Monarchs descend on Pacific Grove in October and take up residence in the pines and eucalyptus trees of the Monarch Grove Butterfly Sanctuary.

  • Felt more like a hotel than an Airbnb, but in the best way. Very tiny rooms, but we didn’t want to spend too much time there anyway. Great location! Would have loved to have more than one mirror. Would definitely stay here again!

  • Gas fireplace looks great but does not function well. We used their available portable electric heater instead. It heated the room faster. A little squeaks on the floor but the bedroom has all the important amenities and very clean. A binder was available with all the important information needed. Overall, we love this beautiful historical house. The pictures I’ve taken resulted with so many love and likes in my social media posting. We’ll definitely come back again.

  • We had satisfying experiences staying in Pacific Grove Inn. The location is excellent. Walking distance to all the attractions including beaches, parks, downtown shops and restaurants. Short driving distances to Monterey, Carmel, Pebble Beach and Point Lobo state park etc. The room/bed is comfortable. The common areas are clean and neat with historic photos of pacific Grove. In addition, we are happy that the room is cleaned every day. The host is very efficient. We received timely email for accessing the building and the room. We will definitely return and highly recommend the place to others.

  • Lovely house! Heating works very well and gets the house warm as it was quite chilly while we were in town. The house has a cute garden and full kitchen. It is also quite close to the ocean and there is a shopping center up the road for groceries. Super comfy beds!

    Ian2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely love this place. I will be back here for sure.

    Bhuvanesh2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and super clean house. Perfect location in Carmel, would love to stay here again!

    Nuzhat2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Such a perfect place to stay for the price. No frills or anything, but it was nice to be able to have a place to come that was comfortable. Having access to Netflix was a plus, and that was nice to be able to unwind when we were actually at the house. What a charming city, and the location was perfect! We would definitely recommend this to future travelers, especially for the price! Thanks Cathy!

    Paul & Tami2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, loooved the decor! It was an excellent fairly short walk to downtown Monterey and we would love to come back next time we’re in town!

    Tiffany2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Annie and jack's place was great! Cozy, great backyard and awesome location for walking to downtown Monterey!

    Kelly2019-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a great place to rest in Monterey, look no more, stay with Annie and Jack! Their place offers privacy and comfort while being accesible from all interest points. We would enjoy the 5-10min drive from every attraction and restaurant we visited. Annie and Jack recommended some great places to eat and sight see. We’ve stayed in tons of places and It’s a pleasure to stay with host who truly enjoy hosting. Annie goes the extra mile. She made some delicious banana bread to have upon our arrival, and during our stay her and Jack made sure to connect with us and our 2 year old. Above all, Annie adds her special touches to the place and you really go without missing any essentials. Shampoo, conditioner, extra towels and blankets, etc. Expect to find coffee, tea and some nuts to snack on. Place is warm on cold nights, and bed is comfy. There’s no TV, but I doubt you’d need one after a whole day of outdoor activities, you will be beat. We stayed three nights and we’d gladly return to their place. Come meet Annie and Jack, you’d be glad you did!

    Facundo2019-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • This space was a great start to our vacation in Monterey and Big Sur. Annie and Jack were very welcoming and gracious, offering local tips on must-see attractions, and the cottage also felt like our own private getaway. They made it feel very homey with little touches (like a delicious homemade lemon cake waiting of us). Highly recommend!

    Sam2019-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Annie was an amazing and helpful host, made us feel welcome. Great location and very quiet neighborhood. Her cottage was very clean, private, comfortable with lots of nice amenities. Homemade cookies were excellent and a nice touch. Highly recommend.

    Lucy2019-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cozy place to stay! It is an adorable cottage with its own private gated yard. The house is in walking distance of restaurants, shopping, etc. while also being in a quiet residential area. The hosts made it easy to check in and out and were great about listing places to explore. I will definitely be coming back 💖

    MacKenzie2019-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was a booking made for my Mum and Dad, who were spending a few days in Monterey. Annie and Jack could not have been more friendly, helpful or responsive. And even though their location, just up the hill about 15 minutes' walk from Cannery Row, is already great, they still offered a lift from the Amtrak bus. The studio cottage is really cosy and has everything you need, and there's fantastic collection of music books, pictures and memorabilia to give it a really lively feel. Lovely little place and fantastic hosts!

There’s coffee inside the room, clean bathroom, clean towels and heater working (good basics) + sauna and jacuzzi area!! 10min away by car from Cannery Row! Thank you!

  • Brian’s place is lovely, remote and scenic! If you are looking for a nice getaway that has a gorgeous view of the ocean — this is the place. He was extremely nice and hospitable.

    Destiny2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful, comfortable place with great views. We were very relaxed and had a great stay.

    Andrea2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Due to our own booking needs we moved from the downstairs location to the upstairs location halfway through out the stay. Although both locations were outstanding, I would recommend the downstairs location over the upstairs. This unit (upstairs) was nice but the other unit was much more spacious. The view was wonderful and you could see the ocean from the unit. It was so nice waking up to that view! Brian was accommodating and had a grill we could use. We did buy the charcoal and lighter fluid as most people don’t use the grill. Would recommend!

    Georgia2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

  • We had a wonderful month in Carmel at the Breadbox; sound of waves at night and a view of the sea by day. Private, convenient, friendly, and fabulous. We can’t wait to go again! Everything we needed was there, we were in the best part of town, and Dave was an amazing host.

    Sally2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Bread box cottage is indeed a charming place, centrally located in the heart of Carmel by the sea. It’s high enough on the hill to provide a view to the ocean and remarkable sunsets, yet close enough to hear the waves. We have stayed there twice before and will come back again next year. During our most recent visit we were happy to note that the owners made a considerable number of improvements that turned in already attractive and pleasant (and functional) space into something even better.

    Jmatthew2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • The Breadbox is so cozy and peaceful that despite downtown Carmel-By-The-Sea being a short walk away, we spent most of our time at 'home' listening to the sound of surf, reading, and daydreaming by the fireplace. Dave & Lee were instantly available with any questions, and kindly suggested the best walks, trails, restaurants, and art galleries to visit. We found ourselves not wanting to leave, and hope everyone who stays at 'home' in Carmel falls in love with the Breadbox like we have.

  • This is a charming house very well layed out with a lovely back garden with most attractive landscaping which we used a lot to sit out in and read and have a meal etc. very quiet and private location yet near to town. The kitchen had everything we needed to have meals. Loved having the efficient washer/dryer. We could watch the sun set from the front room and gardens ... lovely. Dave was a jewel always so cordial and prompt in helping us. He even dropped by the house to assist with a small issue and was so charming we felt we could have become good friends if only we lived in the area instead of just visiting. We would defiantly stay here again and recommend it to friends. Sandra and Gene

    Sandra2018-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in every way. Would like to book next year for two months.

    Carol2018-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • 4/18/1018 A heartfelt thank you for our wonderful and carefree month in the utterly charming home called Breadbox with it’s lovely backyard + barbecue. We enjoyed the tri-level living and the kitchen was well equipped, bright and airy. The windows are wonderful......they’re numerous, have old world charm and open out......add in the inspired skylights thru which one can stargaze and the lovely peek-a-boo ocean view and the distant sounds of the crashing surf at night and you have nirvana! The location was perfect too with the village restaurants and galleries and beautiful dog friendly Carmel Beach a short 1/2 mile walk away. We loved the social aspect of this location, particularly the beach. Pebble Beach and 17 mile drive with it’s breathtaking ocean walk is just a 10 minute drive away. ....and Big Sur is a 1/2 hour north!!!! As you can tell we loved it all!!!! And thank you again,Dave, for your attention to details. S & R & T

    Austin2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Upon check-in, Bill was already outside ready to greet us and show us where to park. He showed us around, how everything works, and even gave us tips during our trip which we ended up enjoying our last morning in Carmel. We were less than 5 minutes from the Barnyard, Point Lobos, dining downtown and Carmel beach. Less than 15 minutes from a night out exploring Monterey! We even utilized the outdoor area to stargaze which we can’t do back home. The area is very quiet and calm and there’s no heavy traffic whatsoever around the home. The bed was very comfy, there’s lots of natural light to the very spacious room. Thank you Bill for making us feel welcome during our stay!

    Victoria2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay while visiting Carmel, the property is a 15 minute walk from the main street of Carmel, which was not an issue for us. The house was lovely and spacious, with the use of the kitchen, garden and living room, it realy felt like a home away from home. The host was very good at helping us with any questions and we were always able to get advice or more toiletries at any time of the day or night. We would highly recommend this property.

    Clementine Cottage is available for a minimum of 30 nights. From the moment the French doors swing open you're in for a treat. You have entered a private space filled with color and light, fully furnished, and cozy to the maximum, with its own private entrance. We're centrally-located to beach, Fisherman's Wharf, Aquarium, downtown, Cannery Row, Carmel. Please note room accommodates two adults and is not set up for children or pets.
    We welcome our international guests. Clementine "cottage" shares a common wall with the rest of the house, yet it has a separate, private entrance and provides all the comfort and relaxation needed to start each day refreshed and ready for fun. It feels like a charming cottage. Complete privacy. Go around the right side of the house and find the French doors that open into your private bedroom. Inside you will find a bathroom with walk-in shower, convenience nook, and walk-in closet/study with window. The closet/study has a clothing rack and contains a table and chair where you can sit quietly next to a desk-level window for laptop work in a quiet space. The queen-sized bed, topped with a three inch memory foam mattress, is so comfortable, supportive yet soft enough to cradle your contours for a restful night's sleep. If more warmth is needed, the cozy fireplace heater will send out infrared heat. Antique dressers and lamps are charming and utilitarian. Original oil paintings hang on each wall, and change throughout the year for variety. Many are local scenes, including The Monterey Customs House, The Wharf in Monterey, the Pacific Grove coastline carpeted with florescent purple rosea mesembryanthemum. The white tiled walk-in shower is spacious and light, with skylight directly above showering area. Towels, shampoo and soap are provided. The bathroom heater makes for a pleasant and nurturing experience. The convenience nook holds a microwave, mini-fridge, toaster, electric water kettle, and coffeemaker, making it convenient for an in-room meal.
    This is an old, established neighborhood and the neighbors are quiet, kind, and considerate. We are close to a lakeside bird sanctuary. See photos. Within walking distance is the Monterey Bay Coastal Trail. Follow it for a lovely walk to downtown Monterey, a little over a mile away. Or walk over to the nearby beach and get grand views of the Monterey Bay. You can even walk to Monterey on the beach. Get away from everything. Bicycles can be rented in Monterey at Bay Bikes (486 Washington and at American Tin Cannery Antique Mall, 585 Cannery Row). Adventures by the Sea (210 Alvarado Street) Sights A multitiude of sights can be reached quickly from our location.

Eating Places A local weekly paper with restaurant and cafe listings, as well as entertainment venues, will be available in your room. Hidden Treasures Not only will you find historical landmarks and world renowned forest and coastlines, a number of little treasures unmarked by tourist maps or pamphlets are also scattered throughout the area. One of our favorite coffee shops is Acme Coffee in Seaside. They roast their own coffee and provide interesting combinations for your taste. You'll always find an eclectic crowd gathered discussing the latest news, catching up with friends, visiting from around the world and just plain enjoying. Maybe you'll see Carrie the local crochet artist displaying her unique hats and gloves for sale. Lake Laguna Grande is just a few blocks away. A walk around the lake takes about fifteen minutes and in that time you may see families playing, ducks and geese floating in the water, a heron standing perfectly still in the reeds, wild berries in the summertime. We are just a few blocks from the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail, the route of the old Southern Pacific railroad. This paved path stretches 18 miles from the farming village of Castroville in the north to quaint old hometown Pacific Grove to the south. This runner and bike friendly paved path winds past many Monterey attractions along the waterfront, including giant sand dunes, Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, beaches, parks, historic sites and Downtown Monterey. Several local businesses offer bicycle, kayak, surf, paddle board, in-line skate and surrey rentals along the path. You will delight at every mile, enjoying scenic vistas and wildlife viewing, including harbor seals, sea otters, sea lions, birds and sometimes even whales! Walk, run, or bike to downtown Monterey and other famous local attractions. So easy.
  • I had a wonderful 2 months in Cathy and Robert’s place. I loved the location. I liked how it was so close to the highway 1 entrance. It’s right at the edge of Monterey and Seaside. I think I ended up eating most of my meals in Seaside. The place is private and at the back of Cathy and Robert’s house. You get a private entrance through the backyard. It’s very spacious and had plenty of room to hang up and store my things. The bathroom is ADA compliant so the shower is big but is in the same area as the toilet. There’s a large curtain that pulls all the way around the shower area. It takes some getting used to. Eventually I found the best angle to point the shower head to minimize the amount of water that got close to the toilet. Cathy and Robert were very responsive and friendly. Whenever I had any problems or needed refills in some of the amenities, they were quick to respond. This place was definitely a great place to stay in Monterey!

    Stefanie2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Cathryn and Robert are the best hosts anyone could ask for. They made everything so easy and were very easy to talk to in case I needed anything. Robert's paintings made the space extra special too, and more than once he dropped off some freshly baked bread for me (it was delicious!). I had a wonderful stay and recommend Cathryn and Robert's place for anyone looking to stay in the area.

    Sarah2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Robert and Cathy are THE BEST Airbnb hosts on the planet. They have become family. The cottage is wonderful in every way, and I cannot wait to come back sometime in the near future. Book without hesitation!!

    Alexandre2019-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • The cozy cottage is a great place to live! We stayed there for more than two months and had a great time! The bed is very comfortable, the kitchen is small but you have everything to cook a great meal! We also enjoyed the small terrace in the morning, with some coffee and the best bread from our host Robert. Thank you!

    Annika2019-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Cathy and Robert’s place for two months and thoroughly enjoyed my stay! The room had a private entrance as described and I stayed warm while I was there. I didn’t cook, but they have plenty of cooking appliances available for use. The bed was comfy, the sheets were very soft, and everything about it felt like home. Also, their home is close to so many local spots! Downtown Monterey, the aquarium, and Carmel are all about a 15 min drive. You can also walk to the park in the neighborhood. Cathy and Robert were very generous hosts! And they make the most amazing sourdough bread! I highly recommend this Airbnb.

    Joan2018-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Super friendly hosts with an excellent Airbnb! Private and pleasant, with everything a guest needs for a comfortable stay.

    Amy2018-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Where do I start?? Cathy and Robert are HANDS DOWN the best, kindest, and most gracious Airbnb hosts I've ever had the chance to encounter. After a month in their wonderful cottage, I feel they've become part of my family. From Cathy's extraordinary fresh baked sourdough breads to the wonderful walks and talks the three of us shared, I won't ever forget my month at Clementine Cottage, and simply cannot wait to return soon!

    Two-minute walk to south end of Carmel Beach. At the southern border of Carmel's golden rectangle. Modern and newly renovated one-bedroom apartment with separate entrance. Peek of ocean. Well appointed. Bottom level of our house. (We live upstairs and are usually available if there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable!)
    Our apartment is the bottom level of our house, Carol and I live in the top level. The apartment has its own entrance and has a key box that makes check-in a breeze. Bedroom opens to living room with large screen HD TV. Comcast cable TV with DVR and HBO, Blu-Ray player and library, upgraded wifi. Kitchen has refrigerator, dishwasher, toaster oven, microwave, hot water pot, Nespresso coffee maker (capsules are provided) and milk steamer. Bathroom has walk-in shower and heated tile floors.
    One block to the south end of Carmel beach and bluff walk. A favorite walk from the house circles Carmel point along the shoreline to beautiful River beach. A 20 minute walk or short drive takes you to the shops, galleries, restaurants and wine tasting bars of Carmel, centered around Ocean Avenue. Other area highlights include Point Lobos State Park and the Monterey Aquarium.
  • This is by far the nicest airbnb I've ever experienced. One block from the ocean and Scenic Dr., it was the perfect location for my husband and I to visit Carmel, where we lived from 2012 to 2016. The apartment is beautiful, spacious, private, recently remodeled with great taste. You will lack for nothing. Every single item in the kitchen is high end, from the appliances to the silverware and glassware, and any option you could want for making coffee. And don't get me started on the delectable edibles Mike & Carol leave as a welcome package. OFF THE CHARTS. This place is five stars in every single way. Book a stay and you will not be disappointed. I can't wait to go back. THANKS SO MUCH, CAROL & MIKE!

  • Mike & Carol’s place was a perfect fit for our central coast trip. Carmel is so nice I almost don’t want to talk about it! Mike & Carols place is tucked away in a quiet/beautiful neighborhood and it’s a stones throw away from the beach. There were so many nice touches and Carol left us a bunch of delicious treats (and recommendations on how to find more treats in town)! Anything you needed for a beach day was there including a picnic basket and blankets which was awesome. Perfect location for daily jaunts to Monterey, Hwy 1, and wine country. We’ll most certainly be back!

  • Great, well designed and thoughtful space. Location is excellent. Twenty minute walk into town along the ocean. Short walk to Mission Ranch and Carmel River State Beach. Easy access to Ca. 1 for north and south travel along the coast. Mike and Carol are great hosts, providing generous amenities and thoughtful touches throughout. Communication is responsive and clear. Highly recommended for a stay in Carmel.

  • Wonderful apartment in an unbeatable location, coupled with incredibly thoughtful hosts. My girlfriend and I loved our time in Carmel due largely in part to the Airbnb!

  • Terrific location, steps to Carmel beach on the most charming street. Sparkling clean. Some of the best “extra special touches” that I’ve experienced staying at an AirBNB. Very thoughtful with a hand written welcome card, welcome basket, wine and fresh goodies from the local bakery. Mike and Carol were great communicators. This is the perfect little beach house escape. 10 stars. We’ll be back!
