You couldn't ask for a more idyllic vacation retreat than this classic Craftsman style home, whose perch in an exclusive residential area of Carmel Highlands affords panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean that are guaranteed to leave you in a perpetual state of tranquility. You can walk just a short distance to a gorgeous private beach.

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, 2.5 bath house sits on a hillside chiefly below street level. Stairs from the driveway take you down to a patio planted in natives that also has a teak table and chairs for two. Double glass-paned wooden doors lead to an inviting foyer that opens to a great room. Be prepared to gasp in astonishment when you see the views of the sparkling blue ocean through the wall of picture windows.

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

The great room combines living, dining and kitchen areas so that all communal activities can be accomplished in a space that takes 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 in this area and throughout the house. Relax on the large tan leather sectional and enjoy a crackling fire in the wood-burning stone-faced fireplace or watch movies on a flat-screen TV concealed in a wooden cabinet. Or daydream as you gaze out the window from a built-in ledge with cushion seating and colorful sea theme pillows that extends the length of the living room. This floor also includes a half bath.

Preparing meals will be an absolute joy in the well-laid out chef's dream kitchen with its expansive counter space. Not only can cooks partake of all social activity, but they can imbibe the gorgeous views while at work. Its chief features are handsome oak cabinets, sand-colored tiles on counter-tops and back-splashes, top quality stainless steel appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator, an induction stove top, oven, dishwasher and microwave, as well as a trash compactor. Dividing the living room and kitchen is a long rectangular island with double sinks. Upholstered stools provide counter seating. There is a separate stainless steel bar sink as well.

Built-in oak cabinetry extends into the dining area, which is situated alongside the kitchen next to windows that reveal an overview of the beautiful tree-shrouded neighborhood below and the ocean in the distance. A Craftsman table and upholstered chairs can seat up to 8. Stylish dishware, glasses and all the accoutrements for dining in elegance are provided. A display of shells, coral, sea fans and sea glass are attractively displayed on the cabinets and kitchen windows.

A short flight of stairs from the living room leads to a cozy wood-paneled family room that overlooks the great room. You'll feel like you're on top of the world in this friendly spot where you can curl up with a book or engage in long conversations with loved ones on the jade plush couch with colorful pillows or the brown leather easy chair. Better yet, just drink in the spectacular coastal scenery in a state of total repose. A wet bar with temperature-controlled wine storage unit 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 capture the spectacular light and fresh ocean breezes from a deck equipped with a grill, teak table and chairs for 6.

The bedrooms are located on the lower level below the great room.

The master, with treetop, mountain and ocean views and its own deck, features a king Craftsman bed with luxury linens, a white coverlet and contemporary ocean blue duvet cover with white sand dollar design. An upholstered easy chair, a built-in accordion screen covering the windows 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 type vanity with chair, a sunken black Jacuzzi tub and a sauna. A large walk-in closet includes two dressers.

A few steps down is a second bedroom with a queen bed and views out to the Pacific Ocean. The luxury bedding has seafoam and driftwood colors with coordinating pillows. A Craftsman dresser and two end tables with Craftsman lamps and a cocoa-brown velvet easy chair complete the room.

A third spacious bedroom has a king that can convert to two twins with a coral and white seashell themed comforter and taupe coverlet, TV with Blu-Ray DVD and sliding glass doors leading to deck with ocean views with chairs and table for two.

A second full bath, with a long wrap around counter and earth colored tile has accents of blues and seafoam to carry the colors of the sea into this spacious room

A large laundry room on this floor has a washer and dryer. The garage contains a billiard table with an ocean view window and allows parking for one car. Two additional cars can be parked in the driveway.

A trip to the beach is an easy walk or drive and all the gear is provided including chairs, blankets, umbrella, and Coolers and plastic tableware and glasses.

If total escape in a place of extraordinary beauty is your desire, then this splendid home will exceed all your expectations.

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.
