This is our family home since 1950. Our family has been Carmel residents since in the 40's and we continue this tradition now with a 3rd generation.

There are many memories in this house. Our parents hosted many famous guests (artists, writers, celebrities, and politicians) here from the very early days of Carmel. You feel the warm and hospitable nature of the house the minute you step in. We have many repeat guests year after year because of how our house feels.

Everyone loves the big windows that open onto a private courtyard and garden. Perfect for lounging, meals and kids.

TRULY WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful house!! We had everything we needed supplied by the exceptional owners. They were great to work with and we would love to return. Every day we walked into the beautiful town and down to the beach...it was heaven!! We would recommend Katy's for brunch, driving Carmel Valley, and visiting Point Lobos Park. Overall, do visit to relax. Even the property has two garden courtyards to enjoy and architecturally designed to bring the outdoors in with the huge windows and doors.

A REAL GEM!

  • 5 of 5
This house is so warm and charming and comfortable. My family rented this house over the holidays and found it to be absolutely perfect for entertaining, relaxing and feeling at home. Everything was clean and in order, and all the appliances, light fixtures, electronics, etc. worked perfectly. My husband has Parkinson's and it was especially nice to be in a single level home with such good lighting. I would definitely rent this house again...soon. Thank you for sharing your family home with us.

ENJOYABLE WEEK IN CARMEL-BY-THE-SEA

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 spent a week at this home in the beginning of September. We found it to be very comfortable. It was nicely appointed and had an inviting decor. It looked exactly as we expected from the photos we'd seen of the house on this website.

This house worked well for us. We had a single rental car and were able to easily split up because the house was a fairly short walk into town with all its shops, art galleries, and restaurants (we especially liked Dametra Cafe). It's a bit longer walk to the beach, where we saw people light fires on the sand around dusk. Pt Lobos State Park is a short drive away and I visited it 4 times that week, to give some idea of how highly I regard that park. We saw sea otters, seals, sea lions, and coastal mule deer. We also made it down Highway 1 to Big Sur for the first time (no mudslides or rock slides as on earlier trips!), where we went to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. The scenery all along Hwy 1 is amazing.

I would definitely recommend staying at this home.

A TRULY CHARMING, BEAUTIFUL, UPDATED CARMEL HOME.

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to find that the description of the home didn't nearly prepare us for just how lovely it is. The location was in an area of well-kept family homes. We had no hesitation about walking around the neighborhood, even at night.

The landscaped private courtyard is a perfect welcome to this home.The layout of the rooms makes it feel very spacious, and very comfortable for families or group of friends travelling together. The owners have thought of everything you might need during your stay and everything from the linens to the appliances and kitchen supplies were abundant and very high quality. The kitchen is much nicer than in my own home! The bedrooms are comfortable with ample closet space. The bathrooms are updated and there is a nice supply of fresh, fluffy towels. The home was incredibly clean and well-tended. The only downside for us was we only had 4 days to enjoy it. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Our last rental experience was a nightmare and the owner was so awful to work with that I was apprehensive about doing another vacation rental. However, Debbie and Robin were so wonderful to work with they have restored my faith that there are honest vacation rental owners who truly care about providing their guest with a wonderful experience. I highly recommend "Lilli's House" for anyone travelling to the Carmel area.

"LILLI" LOVERS

"Lilli" Lovers

This was our 2nd year to stay at "Lilli's" House, which is a very clean, tastefully decorated, warm and relaxing vacation home. The Smith owners keep the property well maintained and very comfortable for their guests. Especially liked the floor to ceiling windows which allowed beautiful views of the gardens. We found ourselves spending many hours on the private patio. We loved the short walk to Carmel to get exercise and the morning paper, or venture farther to the beach to enjoy all of the very happy dogs on their morning run and chasing balls. We take full advantage of the many activities that the Monterey Peninsula has to offer....sailing, whale watching, golf, hiking at Point Lobos and Asilomar, Kayaking and otter watching at Elkhorn Slough, horse back riding at Pebble Beach, 4th of July at Devendorf Park, Monterey Museum of Art and Aquarium, driving down to Hearst Castle and having dinner at Nepenthe at Big Sur. The area has many very good restaurants. A few of our favorites are Mission Ranch, Katy's Place (breakfast), Carmel Belle (lunch, sit outside and watch the world go by), Il Fornaio. We enjoyed it so much, we are returning next year!!
