From the moment we entered Fair Oaks we knew we were in for a treat! From the idyllic front yard garden to the comfortable great room and cozy quaint bedrooms this home captures all the charm of Carmel. We enjoyed daily walks to the beach and downtown, just a short jaunt from the cottage. Our daughters enjoyed shopping at local boutiques (Carmel Bay Company and GBG), as well as their favorite spots (Anthropologie and Coach Outlet). Family time was spent playing games on the front porch and walking to the many delicious restaurants that surround the area. One of our favorite activities was walking over to Mission Ranch for a burger on the deck and a gander at the sheep grazing in the field below. We love Carmel and staying at Fair Oaks made the experience pure perfection. We would recommend staying here to family and friends.
