We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay at Edgemere Cottages - excellent breakfasts (especially yummy scones!), easy access to the beach, on a quiet street a few blocks from town center. We were in Devon cottage, which was perfect for a couple. Daughter and son-in-law were in Rosemont, which has a cozy living room and was great for gathering for a... More

The location is great being 2 blocks to the beach and less than 1/2 mile to the center of town. We stayed in the Devon cottage which is perfect for a couple. It has a kitchenette up a little flight of stairs and a gas fireplace. The property is owned and managed by Gretchen and Doug who were very gracious... More

We spent 2 nights and brought our small Papillon. The property is lovely, our cottage was very comfortable and our hosts were very kind and attentive. The location is perfect, just a short walk to the beach. The only down side was due to the cats roaming bout, there were fleas. Our dog is very allergic, so we ended up... More

Just had a great 7 night stay in Piccadilly Cottage. Owners were extremely helpful (nothing was too much trouble) and served delicious breakfasts. Edgemere Cottages are only a 5 min walk to the lovely Carmel beach and 20 minute walk to the centre of Carmel. We would not hesitate in recommending this lovely accomodation.

We were lucky enough to stay in the Picadilly room. It was romantic and very charming. It is only a block from the beach, a nice stroll. The breakfast was yummy and the innkeepers were very sweet and knowledgeable about the area. We would definitely return.

We stayed just one night in this very sweet guesthouse. Its location is perfect so close to the wonderful beach. Our room (Patio) was small but cosy. Breakfast was very good too. The little patio area outside was sweet and it would have been lovely to linger there. Loved Carmel!
