“Fairytale cottage just 3 blocks from a beautiful beach”
3 things they loved about the trip
- Our very first home exchange was with Judith and Bud who, as experienced home swappers, were delightful to deal with and provided us with a memorable experience above and beyond our expectations
- The well equipped and comfortable fairy-tale cottage is a mere 3 blocks walk from an outstanding mile-long, white sand beach. You can see if from the main upstairs bedroom.
- Carmel-by-the-Sea is a unique town with fantastic shops and restaurants in a botanic garden setting. The drive along Big Sur and several State Parks are just to the South on Hwy US1 - stunning scenery, excellent hiking!
“Visit to Point Lobos State Park, drive down the coast to Big Sur (lunch at Napenthe is a must!), Monterey Aquarium, long weekend excursion to Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks - but mostly we enjoyed just being in Carmel in its botanic garden atmosphere and our long walks along the beach where we met friendly people and their very happy dogs!”
