Carmel House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Take advantage of Winter 2014 per guest discounts!

The Acorn is located 2 miles south of Carmel across Highway One from Point Lobos State Park - one of the most magnificent and picturesque areas on the West Coast. This property is located on approximately 5 acres on the top of a knoll overlooking Carmel Bay, Pebble Beach and Point Lobos. Surrounded by open space and park land, the Acorn is a very private setting yet only a 5 minute drive to a new Safeway, shopping and Carmel-by-the-Sea shops and dining. Golf, scuba diving, hiking, beaches -- all close by. Big Sur is a scenic drive just 40 minutes south on Highway One. In addition to the main house, there is a charming guest house with full accommodations.

The Main House: The main house features a king master suite with sliding glass doors that provide romantic, breathtaking views of Point Lobos and Pebble Beach and access to the home's expansive deck. There is also a queen bedroom with separate bathroom and dressing room that also has access to the deck via sliding glass doors. Two additional bedrooms each have two twin beds. A sofa bed in the parlor/game room provides additional sleeping accommodations. See our website www.pointlobosrentals.com for more info.

Guest House: The guest cottage is a charming, cozy 3-room cottage with a king bed, full bath, kitchen and laundry. This unique cottage provides ultimate privacy from the main house should you so desire. Yet it is close enough to provide additional guess accommodations for friends or family.

Come! Enjoy!: The Acorn will provide a unique and unforgettable setting for any family gathering or romantic getaway. Ideally suited for entertaining or just enjoying yourself in a country setting.

If you want the best value and beautiful accommodations,look no further. There is an elegant/casual feel to the whole property. We have rented a lot of properties over the years. This has been the best!!!!!!!!

Our stay was WONDERFUL!!  There are no words to describe how perfect your home was for our family!  As I think back on our week stay it brings tears to my eyes.  That is how perfect it was.  Everyone had their own space, yet the kitchen and living area accommodated all of us comfortably.  The grand-daughters took over the music room as their play room.  Not one toy was found outside that room!  The girls loved using it as their slumber party room as well!  We had our four children and their mates around the kitchen table for a breakfast and dinner and I can't tell you how that made us feel.  That table was the hub of our stay!  But the best part was us old folks could go to the cottage and enjoy the peace and quiet.  LOL.  The back yard and patio received a work out as well.  I just hope the horses didn't gain much weight on the apples we fed them. The quail, turkeys and the cow with the bell around it's neck were the cherry on top! Monterey and Carmel attractions were less than 5-15 minutes away and beach access for an afternoon picnic was just across the street. For those who wanted to hike or bike ride, Pt Lobos Reserve was only a hop, skip and jump away. There was always something to do or see for our group that aged from 18 months to, well retirement age! We all can't wait to return. Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us.

Made the Cut

Hello Pat,

I hope this message finds you well!

I just want to let you know your family's home is gorgeous! The photos and descriptions do not do it justice! We are very much enjoying our time here.

I do have a favor to ask, my husband is a PGA Tour Player playing in the AT&T. If he makes the cut after tomorrow he will be playing on Sunday. I understand the check out time on Sunday is 10am but if possible would we be able to extend it till about 4 or 5pm if you do not have a tenant after us?

Everything was great. The home was perfect for our family. The view was beautiful. There was lots of room for the kids to explore and run around and they had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend this place for any large family. Thank you for sharing your home and we would come back again if we can ever get our families vacations coordinated together again. We did our best to take care of your home as we take care of our own.

I want to THANK you for the rental of the Acorn Ranch last week. I can't tell you how much we loved it, from the beautiful views to the incredible family history. My husband and I were in need of a quiet getaway. Your family's legacy of preserving Point Lobos for future generations was inspiring to us and our families, an understanding of prior generations and their contributions to this world.
We will definitely be back for a second visit, my husband has an architectural / engineering firm and he would like to bring his staff for a visit to soak up the architecture and history. So again, a heartfelt THANK YOU, you provided us with a memorable vacation that we will always cherish.
