Charming guest cottage in a gated estate, nestled atop a magical forest of ancient redwoods. Gorgeous mountain views, sunshine and privacy. A Big Sur feel without the long commute. The perfect get-a-way retreat only six miles from Carmel-by-the-Sea.

The space

Endor is a very special place - it is a perfect retreat combining the tranquility of majestic redwood trees with the sounds of a bubbling seasonal creak, and the songs of birds from dawn till dusk. One guest called it "a real tree house". If you a Star Wars fan, you will find the resemblance.
Endor has windows that open to the forest around, and a little deck.
Outside is a spacious Carmel stone patio with a wide seating area, a built-in BBQ, wood burning pizza oven, gas fire-pit and a small pond with koi and goldfish. If we are home, we would love to make pizza for you.

Curious grey foxes visit us at night, and an occasional bobcat shows up too. Proud condors make their nests in the redwoods, and the California peregrine falcon is a frequent guest. At night you can hear the hooting owls from the forest. In the spring bunnies are everywhere, playing and hopping around the wild irises.
Around the 5 acres of nature you will see majestic redwoods, often in a fairy ring. There is magic in this place.
A walk along the canyon is beautiful any time of day, and only a short drive from downtown Carmel or sunny Carmel Valley. There is a Zen center within a short walk. Garland Park is nearby with great hikes for all ages. And for the more adventurous, a visit to Tassajara hot springs is an hour drive up the mountain. See our Guidebook for more ideas and recommendations.
Note: the kitchen is not set up for cooking. There is a microwave and refrigerator, and a BBQ on the stone patio outside.

Guest access

Guests enjoy complete privacy and will only share the road with us, your hosts.
Your mobile phones will not work very well in the canyon: that is the price we pay for living in this enchanted setting.

Endor was truly an enchanting cottage! My boyfriend and I stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend. It was our first experience with, and the process and the stay were painless! Nestled back in a wooded area, it was perfect for the two of us! It was a very romantic setting for our anniversary, and Daniella was a wonderful host! She gave us a bottle of her favorite wine for our anniversary and was open and helpful during our stay. We highly recommend Endor!

Had a great weekend stay at Daniella's. She was a wonderful host. We had said that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Daniella left us a bottle of wine , raspberries, juice and more. The cottage is located near her beautiful home. Both buildings are built into a hill, surrounded all around by the woods. The location is amazing: serene, idyllic woods, silent except for the birds. The cottage is small but has everything you need including binoculars, a flashlight, a nice book collection and DVDs. Also, no TV which we considered a plus. Everything was so peaceful, a wonderful escape. She has a sweet shy Pomeranian named Achilles. Funniest dog name ever. Highly recommend!
