Our quiet, peaceful, and secluded guest house lies less than 1/4 mile above Bernardus Lodge. It was completely remodeled in 2006. It is spacious yet cozy for two people at 600+ square feet. It has beautiful views of Garland Ranch Regional Park and Garzas Canyon.
The guest house is minutes from Leguna Seca (5), Monterey (15-20), Pacific Grove (25), Garland Park (2), Wine Tasting and Carmel-by-the-Sea (10-15). It is approximately 45 minutes to Big Sur.
Enjoy all the Monterey Peninsula has to offer or just relax and rest in the sun, fresh air, and gorgeous views from the deck!
A great value - please read some comments in the guest book below.

Hello! We look forward to accommodating you at our wonderful spot in Carmel Valley. Our son, Rogers helps us manage the guest house so he'll be your primary point of contact when coordinating your stay.
Rogers purchased this bungalow in 1989
Carmel Valley is known for its great climate, rustic feel, and beautiful scenery. We actually reside in the main house which sits lower on our property. There are no direct sight lines between the two houses and often times we don't even meet our guests (although we most certainly enjoy when we do). It has great southern exposure and views onto Garland Park, the eastern part of the valley, and the Santa Lucia Mountain Range.
There are a quite a few nice things about the guest house. Please read the guest comments in our online guest book and view the photos as they best describe the benefits and amenities that our guest house has to offer.
We completely remodeled the guest house in 2005/06, and many guests have told us how much they like the 'feel' of the place. We've been on VRBO since late 2007 and have been excited ever since at having guests enjoy the beautiful place we call home.
We stayed 3 nights at the guest house and it was the perfect place for a long weekend. Very laid back, gorgeous view and comfortable/clean home. Nestled in the hills, we slept soundly and woke up refreshed with a great view to start our day. Whether you're heading to Big Sur, Carmel, Monterey or just down the street to Carmel Valley this spot makes it easy to enjoy it all. We would love to come back again :)
We stayed 5 nights at the guest house after being in San Fran for 5 days. It was the perfect base to explore the Monterey peninsula. Great hikes near by and Big Sur not far. We had deer in on yard most days and a great view of the valley.
Arriving in darkness the previous evening we were unprepared for the view that greeted us when we woke up the following morning: The valley spread out below us in the gorgeous morning sunlight. It was breathtaking.
Overall, our stay was a pleasure in every way. The guesthouse was cosy, clean, elegantly appointed and well equipped (TV, iPod dock, Wifi, coffee maker - the owners even left an aerobed for our young son to sleep on). Our hosts were generous, warm and helpful - I can't thank them enough.
The cabin also affords easy access to local hikes in the spectacular Garland Ranch Regional Park (two minutes down the road), as well as to Carmel Valley Village (5-10 minute drive), Carmel-by-the-Sea (15 minutes) and Monterey (20 minutes). Our son particularly enjoyed our trip to the Monterey aquarium which seems to be a must-visit for kids of all ages.
On the whole it was the perfect place for a relaxing retreat, and one I hope we will be able to return to in the future.
We stayed recently and had a lovely visit. The guest cottage is very charming, impeccably clean, and includes everything we needed in the kitchen. The deck wraps around two sides and the view is breathtaking. We were planning on going for a hike, but enjoyed the property so much we had a bottle of wine and relaxed on the deck instead. The bathroom is gorgeous and that includes a view as well. The pictures are accurate and everything was clean and in order. We would definitely stay again, although for more nights next time!
Simple elegance! The views are unbelievably beautiful! Private... VERY tastefully decorated. We enjoyed every second. Sat on the deck and enjoyed our wine with the view. I think this place is the BEST kept secret in the valley! We had dinner at Wickets in the Bernardus lodge on the patio... wonderful. We were celebrating our 26th anniversary. We hope to return in October!
The guesthouse is charming and peaceful, the views and oak trees are lovely, and the furniture comfortable. Before booking, I would inquire whether some needed repairs have been made. The sliding door to the bathroom is jammed, resulting in lack of privacy. The bedside lamps both have broken switches, so the only operable switch is by the door. There is no light over or near the dining table. If you intend to cook, you will need to bring your own cooking equipment, as only one tiny saucepan and a scratched Teflon skillet are provided. The small refrigerator has only a tiny freezer compartment. There is a nice two-burner cooktop, a small microwave, but no oven at all. The "toaster oven" is really a slot toaster with a compartment just big enough for a couple of bagels or croissants. The coffee maker is only 2 cups. There are only a few dishes and no serving bowls. The wifi works great and cell phone reception is good. The TV is small, the CD player doesn't work, and the "music library" consists of 7 CDs. There is no provision for playing DVDs.
The hosts were pleasant people to deal with. I feel confident that they will address these concerns.
