Set among the hills in a very quiet neighborhood in beautiful Carmel Valley, is our very private and separate cottage WITH A QUEEN BED. Just over 500 sq. ft. with 2 private outdoor decks overlooking the hills of the valley, our cottage is only 1 1/4 miles to Carmel Valley Village's center which is bursting with an impressive array of quality restaurants, wine tasting rooms, art galleries and beautiful boutique shops. A 20-minute drive down a lovely country road brings you to Carmel-by- the- Sea, considered to be one of the most lovely villages and beaches in the entire world. Just a bit further is Monterey Bay Sanctuary and Monterey Bay Aquarium, also considered to be one of the best aquariums in the world. Big Sur is no more than a 1-hour drive south on beautiful Highway 1. Other nearby attractions include Pebble Beach Golf Resort, Pt. Lobos State Reserve, and Monterey Fisherman's Wharf as well as John Steinbeck's historic Cannery Row.
NO GRILLING ALLOWED- we have a wooden deck!

Peaceful & Healing
I was looking for a quiet getaway alone (just me and my cat), and I could not have found a better place. The Valley is so beautiful, the Village is such a friendly place with many great restaurants and wineries within a mile of the property, and Jenn is an incredibly warm and wonderful hostess. The views from the property are breathtaking, it was the perfect healing retreat I was looking for. While I didn't expect it when I booked my week there, it poured down rain almost the entire time, and I enjoyed every second of it. Rain or shine, I will definitely be going back!
Nice cabin friendly folks, would stay there again.
Amazing views in a relaxing, quaint casita!
My boyfriend and our two dogs had an incredible stay in the casita. The views of Carmel Valley from the balcony are simply stunning. It was just what we were looking for! The only thing was we didn't realize upon booking was that we didn't have access to the larger lower deck which wasn't a huge deal but something to note. We hope to be back again soon! Thank you so much!
Lovely get away.
This trip was my birthday & Christmas gift to myself and it was a perfect gift. The studio was comfy and cozy with great light and views of Jenn’s beautiful gardens and the surrounding area. The outdoor space was also perfect for morning coffee, afternoon reading and an evening glass of wine. The bonus’ are Jenn herself, the walks around the neighborhood, the people in/and Carmel Valley Village.
Jenn was not in town and yet still the best host you could ask for. We had a 3hr time difference and it was the holiday week but any questions I had were immediately answered with such thoughtfulness it felt we had known each other for years. Its a quiet peaceful place with easy access to all the exciting things to do in the surrounding areas. Will definitely be back.
The perfect get away. Tastefully decorated, peaceful. We’ve stayed here before. We will be back!
This place is such a great getaway. Out of the mainstream hustle and bustle but close enough to whatever you need. It’s so peaceful. Great proximity to great restaurants and wine tasting. We just love it!
Fantastic, charming studio!
We loved our stay at this studio! The inside was so inviting and cozy! The view from the deck in the morning was beautiful! We would definitely stay there again!
Carmel Valley Views will feel like you are worlds away with its country living and breathtaking views.. but actually only one mile from the Village- 10-15 miles from EVERYTHING ELSE... parasailing to museums, golfing to hiking, scuba diving to tattoo artists... ITS ALL HERE on our peninsula.
