STUNNING OCEAN VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM, GORGEOUS SUNSETS WITH VIEWS OF WHALES

Carmel Highlands House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms - 2.5 baths - sleeps 6

You couldn't ask for a more idyllic vacation retreat than this Craftsman style home, whose perch in an exclusive residential area of Carmel Highlands affords panoramic ocean views guaranteed to leave you in a perpetual state of tranquility. A beautiful private beach is a short distance away.

The location is likewise ideal. The quaint village of Carmel is just a few miles away; Pacific Grove and Monterey are each a 10-minute drive, and Big Sur about a 45 minute drive.

The multi-level 3 bedroom, 2½ bath house sits on a hillside mainly below street level. Stairs from the driveway lead to a patio with a teak table and chairs for 2. Double doors open to an inviting foyer that leads to a great room. Be prepared to gasp in astonishment at the ocean views revealed by the wall of picture windows.

You will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the Spa on the Plaza in Monterey and tickets for wine tasting in Carmel. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities, plush bathrobes and luxury towels in the bathrooms.

The great room combines living, dining and kitchen areas so that all communal activities can take full advantage of the gorgeous vistas. Typical Craftsman touches such as an earth-toned palette, stained-glass lighting and sturdy oak furnishings are combined with a seashore theme throughout the house. Relax on the leather sectional and enjoy a crackling fire in the wood-burning stone-faced fireplace or watch movies on a flat-screen TV. Or daydream as you gaze out the window from built-in ledge seating that extends the length of the living room. This floor also includes a half bath.

Preparing meals will be a joy in the well-designed chef's dream kitchen. Its chief features: handsome oak cabinets, sand-colored counter and backsplash tile, top quality stainless steel appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator, an induction stove top, oven, dishwasher and microwave. Dividing the living room and kitchen is a long rectangular island with double sinks; upholstered stools provide counter seating.

Built-in oak cabinetry extends into the dining area, which is alongside the kitchen next to windows that reveal the beautiful tree-shrouded neighborhood below and the ocean in the distance. A Craftsman table and upholstered chairs seat up to 8.

A short flight of stairs leads to a cozy wood-paneled family room that will make you feel like you're on top of the world. Curl up with a book or engage in conversations with loved ones on the forest-green plush couch or the brown leather easy chair. Better yet, just drink in the spectacular scenery in a state of total repose. A wet bar and a built-in display case filled with glassware make this the perfect place to enjoy cocktails as the sun sets. You can also throw open the sliding glass doors and enjoy an al fresco meal on a deck equipped with a grill and teak table and chairs for 4.

The bedrooms are located on 2 levels beneath the great room. The master, with treetop, mountain and ocean views and its own deck, features a king Craftsman bed with luxury linens, an olive green upholstered easy chair and a free-standing wood-burning stove for cozy fires on cool nights. The master bath with its custom oak cabinetry and off-white tiles features a star's dressing room vanity, a sunken black Jacuzzi tub and a sauna and a walk-in closet.

A few steps down is a 2nd bedroom with a king bed (which can convert to 2 twins) with luxury linens, a Craftsman dresser and end table, and a cocoa-brown velvet easy chair. A 3rd bedroom also has a king that converts to 2 twins with a coral and white seashell themed comforter and white coverlet. A 2nd full bath, with a long wraparound counter and brown tile, has a shower.

A large laundry room on this floor has a washer and dryer. The garage contains billiard table and allows parking for 1 car; 2 additional cars can be parked in the driveway.

Guestbook comments from the manager
As I sit here by the fire and look at the ocean, I am at peace with the world.Thank you for sharing this wonderful home with us. We live in Carmel Valley and remodeling our home. We were going to Lanai however we decided to rent a home on the coast. So very glad we did! To be sure we will come back again, until that time, it has been a joyful, peaceful and beautiful experience. Thank you!

Wonderful Mountain Top Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I (all young professionals) rented this house out because we were all in town for a friend's wedding. The rooms are all good sizes with the family room offering a spacious, airy sleeping area for two of our guests. This house had everything we needed to enjoy a wonderful, stylish stay. In the past we've experienced rental homes that looked a bit rundown because of the furnishings or decor etc. This house, however, was really chic and very comfortable. The view of the coast from the backyard and at the various bench/vista points along the drive up to the house are amazing. They look like something you'd find on a postcard. There were so many stars visible at night, it made our experience really magical. The only negative aspect was the lack of curtains in the master bathroom. Since we had 7 pp staying at the house, not using 1 of 2 bathrooms was not an option and showering durign the day when others were in the backyard was a little uncomfortable. Overall though, we had a wonderful time staying at this house and look forward to returning again very soon.
