CHARM, AMBIANCE, EXCEPTIONAL VIEWS 'Maisonette de Provence'
Enjoy beautiful Carmel and all the Monterey area without the high price ticket!
'Maisonette de Provence“ is a separate house with 2 bedrooms -each with a king size bed, on our property overlooking Monterey Bay. Our location will provide you with quick access to all of our charming towns - Carmel, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove, and Monterey as well as the beach areas, all less than a 15 minute drive away.
The views are second to none; enjoy one of the many excellent local wines while taking in the sweeping view of the Monterey bay and city lights from the patio. Our sun-filled landscaped patio and garden area will enhance your visit to the California coast. We are originally from France and our 'Maisonette de Provence' and gardens reflect our origins, the house is decorated in typical Provencial style, we are away from the hustle and bustle, in the quiet and calm of the wooded hills above the coast, yet so close as to be near everything that you will want to visit here. Our hillside is well above the areas which get the costal fog in the summer, and enjoys a very pleasant climate year around, not hot in the summer, not cold in the winter; this is a year-round holiday area. On some days you will see a sea of white below you floating in and out of the valleys, a spectacular sight!
The bright, airy, comfortable living room is complete with a genuine leather sofa and love seat, entertainment center featuring a large 46” flat screen HDTV with Satellite TV, DVD, and VCR. We provide free wireless wi-fi throughout the house.
The French double doors open directly onto a spacious terrace, the groomed lawn and flower garden.
Our Maisonette provides you with the comforts of a stylish hotel and home rolled into one!
The upstairs master bedroom features a Cherry wood California King Size bed, a 32' LCD TV with breathtaking view of the Monterey Bay and sparkling city light at night. An antique French armoire completes the ensemble.
The charming second bedroom has a King Size bed and a 26' LCD TV in a Provincial atmosphere. The French double doors open to a rose garden.
Both bedrooms have an alarm clock with i-pod docking.
Connecting the two bedrooms is a small open terrace with views of the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Every season has something to offer here on the Monterey Peninsula; weather is enjoyable all year long and is most spectacular in the spring and fall months. Enjoy the costal lifestyle as we do...for 3 days, or three months!
Very nice property, helpful owners and lovely quiet location. Deposit returned very quickly.
We had a wonderful time and couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. The house was perfect for us and the owner was very helpful and gracious. It's an absolutely beautiful property; very clean, safe and secure. We'd love to stay there again!
The property has the distinct feel of a French cottage and Phillip was very helpful in getting us settled in. The cottage is charming and has incredible hilltop views of Monterey bay. Our family of 4 (kids 9 and 11) found this cottage very comfortable. A 2nd bathroom would have helped but it wasn't a big deal really. We took a day trip to Hearst Castle through Big Sur. My son and I played golf at Bayonet Course and Pacific Grove Links ... both in excellent shape and great value. The kids loved the morning visit from Keela, the fluffy golden cat. All in all, a great vacation getaway for couples or small family. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and hope to be back in the not too distinct future.
My husband and our 2 teenager spent a long weekend in this beautiful vacation home. This was the second time staying there and we'll hopefully return soon. The "Vilage of Provence" truly is a charming place. I don't want to write a long review. Everyone has a different opinion anyways. We all LOVED the house, the design, the fresh flowers on every table and the bathroom, the cleaning ness, the location, the view. Everything was perfect. The rental agreement was easy and clear, the owner incredible helpful and nice. Our check for the security fee was in our mailbox 2 dats after we returned from our trip. We should make it a family tradition spending time there - if there only would be more of those long weekends. :)
This property was true to the photos provided so we knew exactly
what to expect from our 4 day getaway. This cottage was
perfect for our family of 4 including 2 small children. I felt safe & secure with the gated access to the property & was amazed at how many nice & beautiful things were provided to make the guests feel more comfortable in their stay like the fresh flowers, gas BBQ, the beach chairs (at least 4), all the amazing unexpected cookware like the very nice grill pan (Panini's), expresso machine, & pyrex dishes with lids for leftovers. It made our cooking so very easy with minimal cleanup. It is hard to gauge what is at a rental and what is not so you don't overpack or overbuy supplies so I thank the ones before us for your reviews to help with the tiny details...so helpful. I have to admit I was a tiny bit worried about the lack of traditional shower. There is an excellent size garden tub with a hand held shower head. I only learned of the shower head from another review. Let me say that it was not an issue at all. The tub would only be worrisome for someone who cannot get in and out of a traditional tub anyway because there is a good amount of tile around the tub itself you have to climb out of. I only wish I had more time to soak my day away in it. It was heaven. It was great to have Safeway close by for extra supplies too. Last worthy of noting is that 2 rolls of toilet paper was provided at the start of our vacation. I brought 1 roll extra for our 4 day stay and it was perfect. Philippe was exceptional in his professionalism in securing this reservation and a pleasure to work with as was his assistant. She really started our vacation off on an exciting and happy note & was very accommodating and available during our stay. The activities our family enjoyed with children were of course the beach, Dennis the Menace Park, and Johnny Rocket's down at Cannery Row. Fun, Fun!!
I highly recommend this cottage for a family getaway. It was clean, spacious, very well equipped with a family's needs away from home including providing the relaxation and serenity a busy family who needs quality time really needs.
I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!
