vacation rental description

Retreat to a gentler, slower-paced era in this delightful tree-shrouded quintessential Carmel-by-the-Sea board-and-batten cottage that evokes the spirit of the village's original founding artist colony. This clean, airy two-bedroom cottage, which is located in a quiet neighborhood only blocks from the downtown, blends seashore-themed originality and whimsy with comfort and good taste.

An additional private 1 bedroom guest cottage is also available . Please note prices below are for main cottage only and an additional $150 per night is added if both are rented at the same time.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a bottle of sparkling cider or wine, passes from the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, Scheid Wine tasting room passes and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes and oversized towels, and beach gear.

Relax with a good book and warm body and soul in front of a wood-burning brick fireplace in a cozy living room that features comfy furnishings, a vaulted ceiling with skylights, wooden floors topped with plush rugs and paned windows looking out to a fenced-in patio dotted with pots brimming with colorful flowers and native plants. Crisp beach tones of tan, white and robins-egg blue remind you that the Pacific Ocean is just a stone's throw away and you most assuredly are on vacation.

Picture convivial meals with friends and loved ones around a rectangular French country oak table that can seat up to 10 in a dining area that overlooks the patio. Adjacent is a fully-equipped kitchen with granite countertops, gas stove, dishwasher, microwave and side-by-side refrigerator.

Take your morning coffee and croissant at a bistro table tucked into a window corner in the kitchen before you put on your walking shoes and stroll into the village of Carmel to explore the myriad shops, galleries and world-class restaurants. If you're feeling ambitious, you can even continue all the way down Ocean Avenue to its ending at the pristine white beaches and sparkling azure waves that have enticed countless visitors from around the world to kick off their shoes and stroll along the water's edge. If you plan ahead, you can stop at Bruno's Market, a Carmel trademark, en route and pick up some wine, cheese, bread and fresh fruit for a casual picnic.

The robin's-egg blue and sage green master bedroom, with its plush warm carpeting and luxury-hotel-quality linens, features a white California king bed with Memory Foam topper that can be converted to two twins if desired. The second smaller bedroom has hardwood flooring topped with an area rug and a queen wicker bed. Additional sleeping arrangements are provided by a comfortable futon/chaise and a white deep sofa in the living room, offering total sleeping accommodations for up to five adults or four adults and two children. The bathroom, with its new granite counter top, is tiled throughout, including whimsical tiles of fish adorning the combination bath/shower.

Pets are welcome in this secure property, which is completely enclosed by a grape-stake fence. You can walk your dog in a charming vest-pocket park just around the corner. The paved driveway is long enough to accommodate a recreational vehicle; there is plenty of street parking as well. Evening cocktails can be enjoyed at a bistro table in the front patio. A grill is provided for outdoor cooking and entertaining. Outdoor access to washer and dryer.

A newly refurbished one-bedroom guest cottage behind the main house can also be rented to provide additional accommodations. Obtain more information on #3264 on this same website. You can book the guest cottage together with the main house or separately.

Reviewer Comments:
Let me start by saying how absolutely adorable this cottage and it’s environs are. Like all of Anne’s properties the finer things of Life were provided for and within a matter of hours you feel right at home. Your staff is very professional, supportive and aware that staying in the background is an excellent rule. Tracy and Marietta were real gems about supporting my every request. The cleaning team that came to do mid-month cleaning was fantastic, efficient and friendly. They were willing to clean wherever you indicated some problems. Like all facilities, this cottage needs some TLC. Below are just some suggestions for improvements: There needs to be more labels for things like the “disposal” are located, cleaning supplies, what is in bathroom in cabinet, kitchen items etc. Have someone unfamiliar with the house try to find ordinary things. Cuisinart Coffee maker is too complicated. The middle unit on the maker is moody and pops out at will. Lastly, this maker is a real b---- to clean. I literally let basket, and grinder sit in hot water for hours the build up coffee grinds came off the parts. If you do not clean this after each use, it becomes unusable. I bought a Mr. Coffee and Grinder at Prims for $45 dollars. Easy to replace and operate. The refrigerator needs replaced. It works find but the rust on the outside does no look so good. There are many tiles on the kitchen floor that need replace because they are cracked or the grout is coming off. Your have already requested bids on fixing the fireplace, it just adds so much to the charm of the cottage. I purchased a new poker, as the other one was useless. I strongly suggest you make available to renters only “Fat Wood” to start fires. I left you a box as a starter. If renters burn pine logs and starter kits, the fireplace must be cleaned every 6 months. The pine residue builds on the chimney walls and a chimney fire could happen. Houses in Carmel are too close together to allow for such an events.

Relaxing stay in Carmel

Review submitted: October 7, 2011   Date of arrival: September 26, 2011

My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing week in Carmel at the Torres cottage. It was so peaceful and within walking distance of downtown. The cottage is well appointed as Annie has added all the little touches. It was like being at home. This cottage is quaint and private with a fence surrounding the property. I was able to park my car inside the property which I liked. We used the Aquarium passes which was a savings. We really had a nice time there and will stay there again.

Charming, Pet Friendly Paradise

Review submitted: September 22, 2011   Date of arrival: September 10, 2011

We enjoyed a wonderful stay from the moment of our arrival. The cottage is clean, well cared for and the garden is inviting. We loved the proximity to town and the beach coupled with the quiet of not being too close. The cottage is well-equiped, bright and cheerful. We travel to Carmel at least twice a year and finally, after a 20+ year search, we have found the perfect place. We found it to be a great value. It's not cheap, but we certainly felt we got more than our money's worth of comfort and enjoyment.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway
