About the property

2 Bed, 2 Bath On Carmel Point, Close To Beaches, Village & All Attractions

Tucked away in a quiet/private neighborhood in the "Golden Rectangle" on Carmel Point, Just 800 ft to Carmel Beach is our Sea Cottage. A short walk to Carmel State Beach & wildlife reserve (1block+). A short walk to the East is the Mission Ranch, owned by former Mayor/Actor Clint Eastwood. See sheep in the meadow, lagoon or enjoy a fine meal at sunset. Point Lobos is an experience that shouldn't be missed!

The cottage is completely updated. Casual elegance unparalleled.

About Karen M. Crossman

I grew up in Aspen Colorado on my Fathers cattle ranch which is now known as Snowmass at Aspen ski resort. I spent the school year in California and every summer in Colorado. Nursing was my passion and eventually led to my own successful business caring for the elderly in Carmel for over 20 years. I currently live in Pebble Beach.

Karen M. Crossman purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Karen M. Crossman chose Carmel Point

I inherited this property in 2004 and lived in it for a time before updating and remodeling it. I'm so fortunate to own this little piece of paradise, it truly is an enchanting place. The quiet peaceful neighborhood, so close to the beaches, the village and Pebble Beach, yet so private. It's wonderful to be a part of this area, to experience all the wonders of our coastal life.

What makes this cottage unique

I fell in love with this Sea Cottage, it reminds me of the Sea cottages of old Europe. With their peaceful gardens, fences and close proximity to the sea. I know you will enjoy it too.

Great place, quiet location and short walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cottage, gorgeous interior and relaxing patio with fire pit. Less than a mile to the shops and restaurants on Ocean Ave. and only a few blocks to the beach. Hope to be back for future visits.

Perfect little cottage close to the beach and not too far from town.

  • 5 of 5

The hosts have clearly taken care to make their guests stay enjoyable by adding extra touches to their cottage which was greatly appreciated. We stayed with our son, two grandsons, and our lab and had a wonderful experience. The close proximity to the beach and town was perfect. We hope to return soon.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. We found it to be incredibly clean and has all of the amenities that you need. It is decorated really nicely and most importantly the location is fantastic. We were sad to leave and even extended our stay by one more night because it was such a peaceful getaway. Thanks Karen!

Comfortable, clean, and a great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Sea Cottage with our two dogs. The cottage is extremely well equipped and comfortable, with a lovely patio, and "back yard" for the dogs. All fenced! The location couldn't be better; a charming neighborhood and a stroll to the beach. Look no further for the perfect Carmel retreat! We can't wait to come back.

Very nice home in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This home was really cozy and comfy and we enjoyed our time there. The walkability to 2 nice beaches and the point were really a highlight of the trip. It is located in a cute area that is just great for walking around. Loved it and will definitely stay again one day.

The location could not be more ideal! Tranquility, just three minutes' walk from the beach!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is situated in the ideal location for anyone who loves peace and quiet and enjoys walks along Scenic Drive and Carmel Beach. Thoughtful touches abound at this property. The pleasant and well-designed kitchen is equipped with new appliances, ample tableware, linens, glassware, and flatware; pots and pans in every size, and various grilling tools (serious cooks might want to take their own knives, as I always do). In addition, the owner, Karen, stocked it with good Peet's coffee, tea for every taste, staples such as oil and vinegar, spices, salt and pepper, etc. The enclosed patio was perfect for outdoor dining at the large table or on the comfortable furniture next to the fire pit, and provided a nice enclosure for our small dog. Having laundry facilities available is always a plus, and families with kids would appreciate all the beach gear including a picnic basket, various beach toys, etc. Our four-star rather than five-star rating has to do with the beds. Both are queen-sized, and both were a little soft and bouncy for us when the other person moved. This might not be a problem for other people, but we sleep better with a king-sized bed and a higher-end mattress. Though the bedrooms are on the smaller side, we think either one could accommodate a larger bed, and we might recommend that upgrade. In summary, the cottage is really cute, very clean, thoughtfully decorated in a beachy style, well-equipped, and tranquil, and the owner could not have been more accommodating. Highly recommended!
