About the Owner

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

Super Location

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful little cottage! You can not find a better location in Carmel. It's perfect for walking along the beach & walking around enjoying the architecture and searching out the Comstock Cottages. We loved the house and and backyard. Comfortable & SO charming! The house is well stocked with everything you need. Cheryl was terrific in communicating with me and she even checked on us to see if we needed any housekeeping or restocking of supplies during our stay.
I am also a VRBO Owner and I highly recommend Home Port Cottage for your stay in Carmel.

Everything Promised!!!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was everything that was promised and more. The listing was accurate and the photos truly represented the home. It was spotless and adorable and the furnishings were perfect. The gardens are nicely done and colorful. We had one small problem that we had to call for assistance and the manager was there very quickly and efficiently. We were within walking distance of a wonderful beach and the village of Carmel-by-the-Sea so we could walk everywhere ... just needed to bring our flashlight. I would definitely recommend this place and look forward to returning someday.

A true Carmel gem we hope to use again and again!

  • 5 of 5
Home Port Cottage was more than we could have asked for. We loved the location being so close to the beach for quick walks to watch some amazing sunsets. The cottage was a perfect home away from home; it had everything we needed. We loved the gas fireplace for those chilly mornings and making breakfast in the full kitchen. I really enjoyed having my coffee out on the patio looking over the beautifully maintained garden. The cottage is wonderfully kept and offers very comfortable furniture and is meticulously cared for and cleaned. You can tell the owners take great pride in their cottages and it shows. We look forward to coming back for years to come.

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Home Port Cottage provided the perfect setting in every way for a four day getaway for the two of us in beautiful Carmel.

Prior to our arrival, Cheryl and Connie promptly answered all our questions about the property and, as our arrival date approached, provided us with information about the lock box entry to the cottage. This system does not require a formal check-in worked and it worked well, since our flight was three hours late and we did not get to the cottage until later that first evening. Once inside, we were greeted by beautiful fresh flowers, a welcome note from the owner, as well as generous and tasty bags of almonds and pistachios. The welcome package also included very easy-to-use local maps of Carmel and the surrounding area.

The cottage proved to be so much more spacious and well appointed than we expected. It is tastefully decorated and was spotless on our arrival. There are large windows everywhere which allow plenty of natural light into every room in the cottage. Even though Home Port cottage is set among three other cottages and a house, we enjoyed complete privacy sitting in the outdoor patio and garden each evening. The cottages are situated in a way to provide maximum privacy for all the guests.

The kitchen was well stocked with every utensil we needed for preparing our meals. The owners generously supplied us with coffee beans from a local roaster (the kitchen has a coffee grinder) and coffee filters that fit the small drip coffeemaker. There was also an assortment of teas provided.

The spacious living room was very comfortable and we enjoyed the remote controlled gas log fireplace every morning and evening. The bedroom was much larger than we expected, so the king bed did not overwhelm the space. There are several large walk in closets that provide ample space for hanging clothes.

The cottage is only one block from the beach, which we enjoyed walking several times during our stay. The extraordinary 17 mile drive starts just four blocks down the same street where the cottage is located. Similarly, the very fine restaurants in downtown Carmel are no more than a 10 minute walk from the cottage (uphill going into town, downhill returning to the cottage). We enjoyed eating at Andre's Bouchee, The Flying Fish, and Porta Bella.

We highly recommend Home Port Cottage for any couple looking for a very comfortable and spacious accommodation from which to enjoy the natural beauty and fine dining in the Carmel area.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We're glad you liked the goodies. Our family grows the almonds and pistachios. If we left flowers then we knew you were celebrating a special occasion. We're glad you liked your time in Carmel and Home Port Cottage!

how can one say anything negative about a place literally five house walk from the beach and two block from downtown. if you do not smoke, oh my goodness, this place is a joy because there is no sign of anyone smoking in the unit. if you are fuzzy about cleanliness, be as fuzzy as you like, it is as though someone in the army used a toothbrush to clean the place. if it is cool enough to use the fireplace you will find none better. I must admit I stared at it for a few hours, it was as perfect a fire as this one can imagine. the garden is out of a story book. everything is absolutely in all sorts of colors and fragrances. the kitchen, although small, is much better equipped than any kitchen I have ever been too and the tools are all of high quality to make your life easier. the only negatives are the place is smaller than it appears in the photos since photos must have been taken with wide angle lens of sorts. kitchen table only seats two and adding more chairs is not really an option.
my review is simple, if you have not been there, you owe it to yourself to go.

Location

From the Owner

For us, it was love at first sight. Home Port and our other 4 listings (Tradewinds 938557, Home Port 938549, Moon Gate 938556 and Sky Way 938553) 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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Montery Airport at 6.5 Miles Nearest Golf : Pebble Beach Golf Course at 3 Miles Nearest Motorway : Highway 1 at 3 Miles Nearest Beach : Carmel Beach at 1 Miles Car: necessary
