Our stay at Edgemere was the best, memorable, romantic and lovely weekend I could have dreamed of! We walked in to our private cottage (Devon) we were welcomed with a loaf of fresh bread, flowers and homemade cookies. Later, we walked a block and arrived to the beautiful beach of Carmel. I'm so happy we celebrated our Anniversary with the friendly staff at Edgemere Cottages. We will return.
I was doing a solo stay (left hubby and son at home). I stayed in the Devon cottage. I loved the half door where I could let the ocean breeze in but later shut and lock it. The beach is just a block away as well as the scenic walk. It is in a neighborhood and I felt totally safe being by myself. The cottage had everything I needed-comfortable bed, desk, chair, TV, table. The bathroom is updated and modern. There are stairs to a little loft kitchen with a decent sized frig, 2-burner stove, microwave, and sink. There are dishes, wine glasses, and pots and pans. I only used the coffee maker and microwave. They provided coffee, teas, fruit, yogurts, sweet bread, and hot cereal packets.
I can't say enough about our stay at Edgemere. We stayed in the Devon cottage for 4 nights and still weren't ready to leave when our trip was over. Food was delicious, cottage was perfectly clean and so comfortable. Gretchen, Doug and M'kalah were fantastic hosts- unbelievably warm, welcoming, and accommodating. There's no better place to stay in Carmel!
