The location is perfect, just a few blocks from the beach and a short drive away from downtown Carmel. We stayed in the Devon Cottage, which was just adorable, with a kitchenette and even a gas fireplace! Breakfast is provided in the main house and was so yummy (homemade french toast, fresh fruit, and hot coco)! Would definitely recommend staying... More

Great value! Fabulous healthy and delicious breakfast you won't find anywhere else! Quiet, charming, well run small establishment that echoes the past; reminds one of an English country cottage. Proprietors friendly, helpful, and interested in making your visit memorable. Highly recommend for those not interested in a sterile environment. BTW, super clean!

We've visited Gretchen & Doug now four times and it's been a true home-from-home. They're extremely welcoming and their apartments are a relaxing and tranquil space not 50 steps from the stunning Carmel beach. Can't recommend it highly enough.

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 stayed one night at Edgemere Cottages at the end of September. We stayed in the patio room, which is the only room in the house, and has a private bathroom but is not en-suite (not a problem for us but it is right by the door where people from the other rooms come in for breakfast so some people...

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

I stayed with my friend for a girl's getaway and we loved it. It is located a few blocks away from the main drag in a residential neighborhood and it was quiet and private.It is one block from the ocean and we could hear the waves. A perfect location. Gretchen and Doug, the owners, were a delight and focused on... 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.
