PERFECT SPOT FOR A FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous family gathering at Provence in Carmel. The house was perfect on every way. Diane greeted us like long lost friends and was most gracious. The interior of the house provided various delightful areas for eating and lounging.The big well appointed kitchen was perfect for cooking dinner in the evening.
The highlight of each day was sitting by the outside fireplace….a great place for adult conversation after the children had had their s’mores and gone to bed! The beds, by the way, were very comfortable, we loved the tempapedic mattresses!
All the family enjoyed a great day at the Monterey Aquarium, thank you Diane for the passes (a big saving). Meanwhile my husband and I enjoyed a quiet day with a fabulous lunch at Café Rustica in Carmel Valley..... The climate of the valley is ideal with non of the coastal summer fog.
My son arrived with car problems and Diane was incredibly helpful finding a great car mechanic close by. She spent time on the phone researching a place that would handle his specific needs.
It is hard to think of any improvements we would like to see. The only possible suggestion would be an umbrella by the pool. However there is a shaded veranda with fabulous views off the master bedroom that is perfect for lunchtime dining so it's not really that important.
Thank you Diane for a great holiday, we hope to return for another visit soon.

A MAGICAL RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
We are a group of women who come annually for a tennis weekend at Carmel Valley Ranch, and we have finally found our perfect spot! Diane's home is beautifully appointed without being overly formal, and it is well maintained and comfortable. Everything we needed was on property, and the pool and hot tub were the right temperature, for once!
Highly recommended, without hesitation.

WONDERFULLY COMFORTABLE AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
This house does not disappoint! The location is quiet and private even though there are close neighbors. The house itself is very comfortable - this includes the beds and multiple seating areas. The sheets are pressed, the towels are numerous and fluffy. The kitchen has everything one might want. The overall decor is very attractive. The house is close to restaurants and is a short drive to excellent hiking. Grocery shopping either in Monterey at the Whole Foods or in the Central Valley Safeway. Diane was present at the house to greet us and give an orientation. She has clearly put a lot of thought into making her house a very nice rental. We will be back!

PERFECT GIRLS' GETAWAY

Perfect Girls' Getaway
  • 5 of 5
We celebrated a friend's 50th birthday at "Provence" in Carmel Valley and the owner Diane could not have been more accommodating and made our weekend very special. The home is perfect with all of its gathering places and wonderfully equipped cook's kitchen and the pool/hot tub and surrounding garden areas are gorgeous. We managed to enjoy all the cozy and comfortable gathering areas over the weekend and each one is unique in it own way. We especially loved the outdoor fireplace with its seating arrangement as well as the veranda off the master suite with its bucolic views. The beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms are all decorated beautifully. Robes are provided which is a nice touch. The owner of the house has created the perfect environment for a vacation. Her home is cozy and welcoming but large enough that even six women felt we had plenty of our own space if we needed it. We did not want for anything during our three night stay thanks to Diane, and we were all sad to leave "Provence" and its beautiful setting. Diane had even arranged for beautiful sunny weather for our stay. We will definitely return.

MELISSA10.0

  • 4 of 5
Carmel valley is the place to stay!! THis is a huge house! The pool was too cold to swim but the hot tub was great! I began and ended my days in it! The master bedroom was the best bedroom yet the small White and Blue room had the best Bed and sheets, and was the darkest. Do not get me wrong i just used the master as my day room, the veranda is too die for. I do think they need to add a magnifying makeup mirror. Make sure to bring your own shampoo and conditioner none was provided. Overall it was quiet and comfortable. I do think its time for a few updates and maintenance. Pool had some missing tiles and outdoor cushions need to be cleaned. I am glad i chose Carmel Valley, It is too Chilly in Carmel By the sea. Diana is wonerdfull and accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Melissa, for your review and suggestions on how to make
Provence in Carmel Valley even better. The pool temperature is set to 84 degrees, but after receiving your review today, I had it checked. A switch was bad and replaced today. I only wish you had let me know during your stay. We respond 24/7 to any and all issues. The owner of the pool service company lives 4 doors down and fixed it in 10 minutes this morning. I am pleased that you were able to enjoy the spa twice daily.

I will add a makeup mirror to the master bath as you suggested, and replace the outdoor cushions this Fall, as I do each year.

You are right about the better weather in Carmel Valley. The Wall Street Journal once declared it the best weather in the country.

I hope that I can welcome you and Dennis back to Provence in Carmel Valley on your next trip to the West Coast.

Warmest Regards, Diane

COUNTRY FRENCH NIRVANA

  • 5 of 5
Just spent four nights at this very special home. There's passion, love and thoughtfulness tucked into every corner...and there are lots of corners! There were only 3 of us...mom and 2 daughters, ages 18 and 20. We thought we'd have more family joining us but they couldn't make it, so we obviously had a tremendous amount of space. Can't say enough about the home and Diane, the owner. Once you meet, her, you get it...her kindness, humor, and intelligence run rampant throughout this one-of-a-kind home. I only wish we could've filled it with more family. I'm hoping one day we will! Either that or I'm grabbing a bunch of girlfriends and sneaking off on a mom's escape!
