This historic home, within Carmel-by-the-Sea, is the real thing. An authentic, original Carmel home with views of Point Lobos and Fish ranch, this home has everything to make one feel like a local.
Furnished entirely with antiques and fine art, this home is special.
Wake up in the morning to squirrels playing in the hedge, blue jays hopping in the garden. Take your coffee on the sun drenched terrace while hummingbirds sip their breakfast from blooms in the large and gracious garden.
After a day visiting the peninsula, stroll a couple of beautiful blocks to the sea shore to watch the sun go down, then back home for a glass of wine in front of a roaring fire in the spacious living room.
If you don't feel like cooking dinner in the large, professionally equipped kitchen there are plenty of options within easy walking distance, beginning with Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch (just a block away) featuring spectacular views of the bird sanctuary and point Lobos .
Drift off to sleep with the rhythmic sound of waves in the background. There's nothing like the comfort, privacy and serenity of 'Los Abuelos' anywhere in Carmel... perhaps the world.

I was born and raised in Carmel and I attended the Mission school. You can't get much more local than that!
I currently split my time between Paris, France (where I also have vacation rentals) and Carmel.
Please use me as a resource... ask me questions and let me help you have the holiday of your life in beautiful Carmel by the Sea.
My parents fell in love with this house, can't say that I blame them!
Los Abuelos was built in 1926 by MJ Murphy. The house is traditional yet airy and open. You will hear the waves crashing on the beach at night, and birds song in the morning. You can see the ocean as well as gaze upon Fish Ranch. The oldest (and biggest) Monterey Pine tree sits in our front yard, as well as the 2nd biggest Holly tree in the United States.
Walking distance to the Carmel Yoga Center and the Carmel Sunset Center (Concerts, photo exhibits, etc)
