Abalone Cottage (#1)
This cozy cottage is all you need for the perfect retreat. Sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, a white sand beach and local sea otters on the kelp beds greet you as you step outside your cottage. The Abalone cottage is among Carmel’s only beachfront properties. Native Indians dove for abalone – the savory meat was part of their diet, the Mother-of-Pearl shell was used for tools and jewelry. Today these abalone are protected and left only for the sea otters to enjoy. Hardwood floors, fireplace and large glass panels blur the lines between indoor and outdoor. Enjoy 600 plus square feet of indoor living. For family reunions, combine with the historic Whaler Cottage and Sea Otter Cottage to have total privacy with separate living arrangements for up to 14 guests.
