Carmel House Rental Photos and Description
2 bedroom, 2 bath vacation home sleeps 4-5 (Two King/Twin Combos, Q Sleeper Sofa)
The irresistible lure of the sea can be experienced both in distant ocean views and up-close in the ocean decor in this recently updated 2-bedroom, 2-bath Comstock cottage that features many of the unique historic touches that make Carmel architecture so unique.
Located just a 5 minute drive from downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, this charming home is an escape into tranquility, nestled in a sunny spot surrounded by pines and oaks with gorgeous distant vistas of Point Lobos and the blue Pacific over a canopy of trees. Pebble Beach, Monterey and Pacific Grove are just minutes away by car; Big Sur is a 45-minute drive.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in Monterey, 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 oversized towels.
Park at street level in the quiet residential neighborhood and descend a few steps to a courtyard dotted with potted plants and surrounded by a privacy screen of shrubs. A table, 4 chairs, an umbrella and a grill are provided so you can enjoy a casual meal in this secluded setting.
The front entrance leads to a redwood-paneled living room with beige wall-to-wall carpeting, white vaulted ceiling, a gas-burning Carmel-stone fireplace, and a sophisticated color scheme of ocean blues, coral, browns and sand. A wall of windows reveals forest and distant ocean views. A long narrow deck runs along the back and side of the house with rocking chairs and an Adirondack chaise providing a lovely spot for morning coffee or a sunset glass of wine.
A cozy grouping of furnishings in front of the fireplace includes a chocolate-brown plush sofa/chaise combination that can become a queen bed, a burl-wood coffee table, contemporary upholstered side chairs, an Asian chest serving as an end table, a 52-inch flat-screen TV and a striped area rug. A seashell motif weaves throughout the house.
A sunny den, in coral and sea-foam blues, situated just off the front entrance overlooking the courtyard has an Asian-inspired desk. Built-in shelving holds cookbooks and other reading material.
The freshly painted well-conceived kitchen will make gourmet meal preparation fun and easy. Features include stainless steel counter-tops and back-splash, stainless steel electric range, stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher. A bistro table for 2 provides a spot to sit and chat with the cook.
Saloon doors lead to the adjacent dining room that opens to the living room but inhabits its own space along the wall of windows, allowing diners to imbibe ocean views along with their meals. An oval wooden table with upholstered chairs can seat up to 8. Beautiful dishes, glassware, serving pieces and linens allow you to entertain in high style. Throw open the sliding glass doors that lead to the deck and enjoy cocktails at sunset.
The 2 bedrooms both have white bead-board paneling and a palette of sea-foam greens, blues and sand. The master, with treetop views, has a king bed with Memory Foam topper (that can be made into 2 twins) with an ivory coverlet and a coral and white starfish-themed comforter, a wicker dresser and bedside table, a 40" TV, and white shell lamps. Gaze out through the forest in a wicker chair. The coral colored master bath has a tile shower and white luxury towels and spa amenities.
The 2nd bedroom has twin beds (that can become a king with Memory Foam topper) with sea-foam blue comforter, sand-colored duvet and coastal art. The 2nd bathroom has a tub/shower; its colors of blues and sea-foam green and sea-inspired accents makes you feel you are in an ocean resort.
One car can be parked in the garage, but there is a steep drive; on street parking is available. The garage contains a washer and dryer and everything needed for a trip to the beach.
