Carmel Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, Studio + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Look out to the woods and canyon below. See the birds whizzing through the trees and squirrels chirping nearby. The bungalow honestly feels as if you're in a treehouse.

ASK ABOUT OUR TWO-NIGHT SPECIAL: Book two nights and receive a discount on the nightly rate (offer good through December 2014). Let me know first before actually booking and I'll manually enter the special rate of $115/night instead of $125. Check the AVAILABILITY TAB on the right of this text if you wish to determine whether we've been booked.

You'll find our Bungalow is . . . Simple. Comfortable. Cozy (250 sq ft) and Quiet -- plus minutes from downtown and spectacular white sand beaches. Decorated with a local artist's work in addition to a few quirky collectibles, the bungalow overlooks the Pebble Beach Forest Reserve in a quiet residential neighborhood, but you'll find yourself very close to all the Peninsula has to offer.

We provide a modest Continental breakfast to get you started in the morning . . . coffee, tea, fruit, yogurt and biscotti! No kitchen is available, but there is a microwave, small refrigerator, kettle, coffee pot and toaster. You'll be located on the same property as our family home, totally separate and 50 steps from the main house. We're long-time residents, knowledgeable about the area and able to help you find some of the many unique spots guidebooks don't mention. A third person may be accommodated on a very thick futon ($25/visit). We are Pet Friendly and hope you'll bring along your Fido as well.

If you're visiting California's central coast for the first time, you'll find Carmel and the surrounding area an idyllic haven boasting nearly 100 miles of spectacular shoreline - described as the 'greatest meeting of land and sea.' The unbridled beauty of Carmel and Monterey County's landscape and the mild, year-round weather offer endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Family-centered activities abound and there truly is something for everyone.

My brother and I live on the property in the main house built by my father back in the early 60's. We're both artists - Tom being involved in woodworking and I am a textile-printer-painter-jeweler (yes, I know, too many things to do any very well). We're both in love with Carmel, Tom especially, as he's been able to live here all his life. The picture? I couldn't NOT put this in, as it's such a wonderful, nostalgic photo of Tom as a kid. Brings back all those wonderful memories of childhood, no?

Susan Shelley Jones purchased this cabin in 1961

Well, it wasn't us that made that decision. It was our mother. She spent some of the best years of her life here in Carmel. Her father was an artist and dabbler - he painted himself, but also liked to build. The old Wells Fargo in the Valley is one of his creations as well as a couple of houses in Pebble Beach. My mother's family lived in what is now the Carmel Art Association Building on Dolores and we still have one of the old carved, wooden doors you'll find there as well. My grandmother, a great beauty, was a pianist, wrote music, acted in the Forest Theater; AND, was once invited down to the Hearst Castle (we're still not sure if she went by herself or not). Oh, family skeletons!

What is there not to do in Carmel? If you haven't been here before, I'll have a list of things to do that will make your head swim. I must mention, of course, that you might run into any number of movie stars - I saw Clint at Whole Foods one day. I even ran into the former president of Mexico, Vicente Fox. But, aside from tracking all the movie stars, I recommend keeping your visit very simple: just walk. Really, what's a vacation but to just relax and de-compress?

Wonderful getaway

MaryJo and I (along with Lily, our Corgi pup) thoroughly enjoyed our two nights in this aptly described "treehouse" cabin. Shelley was a lovely person and saw after anything we needed. A problem with the hot water was promptly fixed, and she left fruit and delicious biscotti and coffee for us. The wildlife was a real plus, with hummingbirds as well as several other types, a skunk and a deer all spotted in the area during our stay. It was a perfect launch point close to downtown Carmel with easy access to the beach and Monterey. Some very interesting architecture in the area (check out the "owl house" a couple doors down and the "boat" house next to Shelley's which she believed was done by one of Frank Lloyd Wright's students. We will be back, hopefully as regulars.

Perfection plus !

ust the most perfect small cabin in the trees. Shelley has thought of everything. You could self cater here if you kept it simple as there is a toaster, microwave, kettle and coffee maker but it is so close to Carmel and many delightful eateries you will probably be tempted to leave. So quiet and peaceful. It is the best value for money we have encountered. Thank you Shelley.

Charming little cabin down a flight of steps behind Shelley's home. Private, well furnished, with a good bathroom and a gorgeous view over the hills and trees of backstreets Carmel. Shelley was helpful and friendly with good communication and two adorable dogs. Highly recommended.

Had a great time with Shelley (we sat for a good couple of hours sharing stories and getting advice for the rest of my road trip down Highway 1). She was super welcoming and her hideaway in the garden was beautiful.

What a great little cabin! We were only in town for one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. Coffee and biscottis on the balcony in the morning was awesome. We'll definitely look up Shelley's cabin again when in Carmel for next year's conference. Thank you!!!
