We are members of the Monterey Bay Aquarium and have two free guest passes available for your use during your visit. You'll get express entry through the member entrance, 10% discount in the Gift and Bookstore, plus free admission. Please be sure to leave the passes in the Cottage upon your departure so our next guests may borrow them.
We hope you have a wonderful time visiting the Monterey Peninsula. We want to help in any way we can. If you need us, we are here. We respect your privacy though so we'll check in with you at some point just to see if you need anything then we'll fade into the background unless you call on us for any reason. :)
The Cottage is located inside the Pebble Beach main entrance. Gate clearance will be provided for you. It's in the prestigious Macomber Estate Development; surrounded by the lush Del Monte Forest. There is a walking trail directly behind the Cottage that leads down to Ocean Ave. It takes about 15 minutes to walk this trail to the beach and due to an incline on the return walk, it takes about 25 minutes back. The beach is at the bottom of Ocean Ave. Shops and restaurants are in the middle of Ocean Ave.
We don't allow pets in the Cottage because we wish to keep it fresh and free from the smell and dander of animals. We are animals lovers but our charming little Cottage is just not the right place for them.
We look forward to meeting you and doing all we can to ensure that you have a wonderful time in world renowned Pebble Beach.
Hope to see you soon!
Guests are invited to use our 2 free passes to the Aquarium. We keep the passes on the coffee table in the Cottage.
As much or as little as our guests prefer. We will message guests early in their visit to see if there are any needs. After that, we leave any further communication up to our guests. :)
The Cottage is in the forest. It is quiet and peaceful. Deer are often seen wandering through our woods. If there is sunshine in Pebble Beach, Macomber Estates is likely to get it. Though our temperatures are generally in the 60's year round, the Cottage is in the sunbelt of Pebble Beach.
If you are staying more than 2 nights in the Cottage and would like a fresh set of towels, please let me know during your stay and we will be happy to accommodate you.
The cottage was just what we needed for our short stay--would have loved to be there longer. Very efficient use of space. The Conrons are very gracious and accommodating. We hope to return soon!
We only talked with Joe once but Betsy kept in contact by e-mail and we knew they were there if we needed anything. The cottage is lovely and the nicest we have stayed in. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. Everything is within easy driving distance . We are hoping to return soon. It was such a treat to enjoy the cool seaside and difficult to return to the heat of the valley.
My fiancee and I had a wonderful stay at the cottage for four nights. Everything is as advertised. Agree with what we read from the previous reviews. To reiterate:
Excellent location: a few minutes drive to the renowned Pebble Beach Golf Course and clubhouse. 15-20 minutes drive to both Carmel downtown or Monterey downtown. Quietly located inside a forest. Starry
Friendly Host: We received a warm welcome from Joe, Betsy, and their dog, Lucy, on the first night. Betsy promptly responded to our requests for extra kitchenware and cooking stuff. The check-in and check-out were straightforward and accommodated our trip plans.
Comfortable cottage: Comfortable seating room, bedroom, well-equipped open kitchen. Spacious for two people.
Others: The two free passes to the world-class Monterey Bay Aquarium are great bonuses. Also, we went fishing in the Monterey Bay on the first day and did a fair amount of cooking on the following days there. We are grateful that Betsy kindly shared our many catches from the fishing trip (15 fish in total), as we were flying off the Bay Area right after the stay.
Betsy is a welcoming and gracious host. The cabin experience is truly relaxing and so close to both Monterey and Carmel. We had a lovely and time!
The Cottage was exactly as described and Betsy and Joe were great hosts! I was there 5 days and loved the area...it's very quiet with gorgeous scenery everywhere you look. I hope to come back sometime and would definitely stay here again!
We had a very pleasant stay in the cottage. It is very comfortable and charming and very nicely appointed. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The location is great for the Monterey Bay area. Close to everything yet quietly situated in the Cypress Forest. We would recommend the cottage to anyone.
Location, location, location! Carmel is a wonderful place to spend time and the "Charming Pebble Beach Cottage" is a magical place to enjoy your stay.
My wife and I attended a destination wedding in the Carmel area and we were so pleased to have found the cottage. It is located in a private development in the Pebble Beach area, just a short drive to Carmel. Our only regret is that we did not spend more time at the cottage due to the wedding activities!
The cottage was perfect for a couple - it has a large bedroom, a large living area with a well equipped kitchen and a spotless bathroom. Every morning we were greeted with an amazing view of flowers and trees. I looked forward to opening the front door - the fragrance of flowers near the entrance area was truly uplifting.
Both Betsy and Joe were great hosts, casual, friendly and very helpful with information, both by email and in person.
We were honored that Betsy and Joe provide the opportunity to share and enjoy their wonderful property and we would definitely reserve it the next time we are in Carmel.

We received a warm welcome not only from Betsy, Joe and their son, but also from their sweetheart dog, Lucy. The cottage is charming, comfortable and immaculately maintained. And it is situated in a beautiful setting surrounded by gardens and forest. There is a hiking trail through the woods that leads down to the town and its beach. A quiet place to relax, read and take in the natural surroundings after a day of exploring the many wonderful things that the Monterey Peninsula has to offer.
Betsy and Joe were solicitous of our needs and encouraged us to fully enjoy our stay there. We will certainly recommend their cottage to any of our friends who might be traveling there.
There's a lot I could say about our little weekend stay in Joe & Betsy's guest cottage—but it really just boils down to the thoughts I had on the drive out of Carmel.
Basically, "I should really divert the course of my career so I can move to Carmel and work from this amazing beachforest forever."
I am going to say what everyone else has said....it is lovely and very quiet and peaceful. Our first day we walked to Ocean Avenue and that was fun! Not very far at all. Getting in and out of the gates at Pebble Beach was easy....not a hassle. When we met Betsy, she was as kind as could be. We thoroughly enjoyed watching their Labrador Retriever every morning running on the driveway. He would leave his stuffed toy here and there and then it would be gone when we got home. We never actually met the dog (bummer, he looked so sweet) because he was back inside in an instant. The whole neighborhood is just gorgeous. You will love this charming little cottage.
