In the Wine Country 1 bedroom cottage perfect for a couple, an artist or writer
We are 2 artists who have lived and worked in Big Sur for nearly 40 years. We teach workshops at Esalen Institute in art, photography, dance, meditation and unfolding one's intuition. We both exhibit our art in local Big Sur & Carmel galleries, and are in museum and private collections worldwide. We now split our time between our home in Big Sur and here in Mid Carmel Valley. We also have a Big Sur home on VRBO/HomeAway if you care to combine your Carmel visit with a stay in Big Sur, see our listing at VRBO 403333
Owners purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Owners chose Carmel-by-the-Sea
There is no other place like Big Sur, Carmel Valley & the Monterey Peninsula in the world, with it's breathtaking beauty & it's natural environment. We have some of the worlds greatest & most inspiring teachers, thinkers, artists, writers, poets and luminaries living here or who have lived here or passed through. The local people, like a tribe of creative individuals, really know how to live life as human 'beings', rather than human doings. The land calls to us in her quiet spiritual whispers, where One can slow down and appreciate the simplicity of just BEING. We feel blessed everyday and are so very grateful to live on and share our properties here in God's most magnificent creation!
What makes this Cottage unique
It's all been said above, just leave the world behind and find a sanctuary for the soul here in an environment of a beauty that is beyond words.

Cozy little cottage
The cottage is well decorated and has everything you need. It's located on a quiet place where you can birdwatch and relax.
There is a small kitchen where you can prepare meals.

We highly recommend this place. Would definitely stay again.
Peaceful country retreat close to Carmel
This is a very special private cottage a short easy drive from Hwy 1 and Carmel. It's just outside the fog line, so after a day of sightseeing you can retreat to a sunny patio. The amenities are top-notch, and the hosts have anticipated every need. There is a fully stocked small kitchen that is more than adequate for meal prep. A spacious bath and walk-in closet make settling in a pleasure. It is at the end of a country lane, so opening the shades in the morning affords a splendid view of the hills behind the property. The furnishings are worthy of a luxurious resort, and the bed and linens are inviting. I have found my new getaway in Carmel, and I have been coming to this area for many years! Kudos to the hosts, who make every effort to make your stay comfortable, but afford complete privacy.
Charming cottage with beautiful view
We loved this cozy retreat in carmel valley! Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone looking to relax. Cynthia and her husband were very friendly and welcoming. Total gem!
Relaxing Stay in the Valley
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Quietly secluded at the end of the road, the cottage had more than enough space for the two of us, and all the amenities to make for a pleasant stay. Our visit was short (only two nights), and our days were spent away, but we returned to the peace, quiet and nature to recharge.
We met both hosts and they were so pleasant, welcoming and accommodating. We’re looking to stay at their Big
Sur property in the future, and hope to stay with them again when we return to Carmel.
Our stay at this lovely cottage in Carmel was perfect. The house and grounds were beautiful and meticulously kept. Cynthia and Daniel were wonderful hosts....super sweet, helpful and had great suggestions for local places to check out. The cottage was equipped with all the comforts of home and has everything you could possibly need. It was perfect and I hope we can return on our next trip to California.
We are located in the sunshine in Mid Carmel Valley, away from the coastal fog, yet only 4 miles to the charming village of Carmel by the Sea, and only 7 miles to the village of Carmel Valley. Come enjoy the beautiful quiet countryside, yet close to cafes & the many wineries & tasting rooms. Also available is the artist studio & yoga loft on our property for an additional fee. The Refuge Spa & Thermal Pools is only 2 miles away.
