Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
We moved to Carmel in 1964 and never turned back. We love our home in this special place we call Paradise. We brought up our four daughters here and moved to the Highlands twenty-five years ago to enjoy the magnificent ocean views and serenity. My husband is a writer and I'm a Coach for families of children with special educational needs. We enjoy the arts and fine dining found within minutes of our home. We walk daily in our neighborhood and are always inspired by the natural surroundings of the beautiful Carmel Highlands. Our daughters and some of our grandchildren live nearby. They stayed in this small, quaint, artistic community to enjoy the friendly ambiance and the many outdoor activities the Central Coast offers. One of our daughters and her husband have a sailboat, where they enjoy day sailing and whale watching on the Monterey Bay. From every visitor's perspective, our little corner of the world beckons vacationers to return again and again.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 1985

This is the perfect getaway if you’re looking for peace and quiet, the sounds of ocean waves and singing birds! This cottage is everything that is listed in the description. There was a basket of goodies waiting for us on our arrival and a pass to the Point Lobos State Nature Reserve. Thank you Judy for providing the perfect space for a much needed RNR getaway. We will be back!

French country cottage on Carmel Riviera
Point of View cottage was the perfect spot for being on and enjoying the Monterey coast. Close to Big Sur, Pt Lobos and other public lands, shopping, restaurants, beaches, and beautiful Monterey Bay. Views of big blue Pacific from both levels, the cottage is in a private and quiet spot on the larger estate and made honey and welcoming by gracious Judy. Yes, we look forward to another visit soon.
Loved the ambiance of the place.
A Lovely Coastal Retreat
Our stay at The Point of View exceeded our expectations. The tone was set by the delightfully warm greeting that we received from the property owner Judy.
The house is in a beautiful setting with spectacular views, and is well appointed and equipped. Also, the property owner has an eye for detail and made every effort to be accommodating and welcoming.
Carmel-by-the-Sea is a short drive away as is Point Lobos and other well known coastal destinations.
We had a marvelous stay, and returned to the Bay Area with photos and memories of the glorious sunsets that we witnessed from the deck of The Point of View. We plan on returning next year, and highly recommend this property to fellow travelers.
This is a great place to stay. Very quiet. Great views from your bed and the deck. Kitchen has everything you need. Bed was comfortable. Easy place to come and go north or south. Carmel was a short drive up the road. The owner gave nice suggestions for restaurants. Our 2 favorites were Passionfish in Pacific Grove and Sandbar and Grill in Monterey at the wharf. So good. Owner also had a pass to the state park for some hiking. Thank you Judy for being well organized and the nice goody basket. You can’t go wrong to stay here.
