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 2015 for two nights only with exceptions being the Pebble Beach AT&T Golf Tournament; the Concours d'Elegance; and, New Year's Eve ). Let me know first before actually booking and I'll manually enter the special rate of $120/night instead of $130.
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.

About Susan Shelley Jones
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
Why Susan Shelley Jones chose Carmel
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 makes this cabin unique
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?
Guestbook comments from the owner
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.
