Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick hello to tell you that your vacation house convinced my husband that we could live in Carmel. We stayed for two weeks in January of 2013 and just loved it. We were tying to decide whether to live in Healdsburg or Carmel. I wanted Carmel. So now we are at Quail and visit the beaches next to your rentals quite a bit. I just love that cottage. In fact our friends from Arizona are staying there this month, and the best part is that we get to go there and have a BBQ while they are there. I keep telling my husband that we should have a “staycation” and rent the cottage again. We have lovely mountain and golf course views but it is not the ocean. Your place is the best. I tell anyone who wants to rent here.

Take care,
Jan 2013

A Slice of secluded PARADISE!!

  • 5 of 5

My new happy place!!! What a wonderful vacation in such a beautiful secluded setting. Close enough to Carmel, Monterey and such but yet just a short distance to a peaceful, quiet lovely cottage full of amenities and all that we needed. Amazing views, enjoying my morning coffee watching the waves and listening to the calming sounds of the surf. Countless walks on the beach with the dogs and trails just steps away from the cottage. Thank you Sara and Pat for allowing our two small dogs who also thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We love your beautiful home and we will be back!!! B & B Orlando

The Happy Travelers

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite place to vacation and we travel a lot. It's like returning to historic California circa 1900. Awesome views of Point Lobos and Monestary Beach and adjacent to a secluded trail which meanders along what has to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Newly renovated kitchen, new sofa & chair and queen bed. Very cozy. Always sad to leave but will always come back.

The Gold Country, California


  • 5 of 5

Even for a person who has lived most of my life on the coast, staying at the Abalone Cottage was an incredibly experience. To have the Pacific Ocean as part of the front yard is so seldom experienced that it was all we could do to tear ourselves away from the view to do anything else. The cottage is immaculately maintained both inside and out, no small task for a home on the water. The furniture is extremely comfortable, the kitchen had everything I could possibly need, the linens were wonderful, more hidden in plain sight storage space was discovered every day, lanterns and flashlights were conveniently placed should we lose power (we didn't) and wood available should we want to make a fire. The showers were great, the bathroom spotless, plenty of extra towels for shower or the beach and even an apartment size washer/dryer was provided. There is nothing more we could have asked for. We were in love and truly hope to return next year.

Everything and More....

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect. Beautiful view, peace and quiet, accessible to numerous hiking trails and historical to boot. Definitely a one of a kind location. The owners of the property are so nice. I arrived in a complete state of stress burn out and left with a smile on my face; relaxed and ready to take on the world again. It's close to all the tourist action but tucked away from it. I will definitely be returning to this very special place.
