About Kelli and Ramon Rivera

Ramon and Kelli met in 2007 and have been traveling the world together ever since!

Kelli and Ramon Rivera purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Kelli and Ramon Rivera chose Central Coast California

As transplants from nearby Monterey, we constantly found ourselves in Carmel Valley for the warm, sunny weather and of course, the wine. When the opportunity to purchase this amazing foreclosure arose, we jumped on the chance to own in this neighborhood. After undergoing a six month renovation, we were finally able to move in the property during the holidays in 2013.

What makes this cottage unique

The meadow across the street is perfect for a picnic or an evening stroll enjoying the mountain views. It is also an excellent place to allow your furry-friends to run and play fetch (and maybe chase some deer or wild turkeys).

Charming and quiet studio

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here. The studio is really well maintained. We met the owner during our stay and she was incredibly friendly and welcoming. At the beginning we hoped that the kitchen was a little bigger but then we decided to do a very simple dinner and everything worked great.
