Overview

Carmel Valley House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms plus bonus loft (king). 4 kings, 2 qeens, 3 baths.

This beautifully maintained five bedroom, three bath home, with additional 'bonus king loft,' makes for a lovely Carmel Valley retreat. It is beautifully furnished and the kitchen area makes it nice for intimate family gatherings with casual dining, while the formal hand-made mahogony furniture provides an elegant setting for more formal dining. There is a formal living area as well as a more casual family room (s). While the house is spacious, smaller groups enjoy it as well. The main floor has the kitchen with dining area, four of the five bedrooms, bathrooms, formal dining room and game room! The bedrooms all have separate entrances and bathrooms are near to all! The 'bonus' loft is a large, spacious upstairs room with comfy king-size bed and seating.

The house overlooks the beautiful Carmel Valley hills and one can walk to the Village for wine tasting or whatever! Relax on the patio with a patio heater (one rarely needs it) and sip a glass of wine while watching the sunset. Watch as the fog rolls in, but usually stops short of the Village. The house is nicely set up for three king bedrooms, one of which is 400 s.f.! Each with its own entrance, and two queen-size rooms. Additionally, there is the large loft which boasts the most comfortable bed and seating. There are a total of three beautiful bathrooms, two showers and one bathtub. Or, come as a couple and enjoy the house with the 400 s.f. master with flat screen and dining table (in the room) for sipping wine and watching the northern views. You will most likely see the wild turkeys and deer as well! (will adjust pricing for smaller party/off-season).

The upstairs loft is a 'bonus' room. That is, it is very open with great views, and the most comfortable king size bed and seating. This brings the house to 4 kings and 2 queens. The downstairs queen room also has its own family room and television--a great place for casual relaxing. The house is great for just a couple or two, or for a larger gathering. There are a total of three flat screen televisions, cable, and internet (of course!).

Keywords: Beautiful home boasting 5 bedrooms/3 baths (Large bonus king loft with seating). 3,300 s.f. Upstairs loft with additional king, with additional family room downstairs. Formal living room and dining room, as well 'resale room' and game/poker table! Spacious outside patio and BBQ.

About Cindy

We are a professional couple who have lived in Carmel Valley most of our lives. We are very involved in the community. We are present/past members of Carmel Valley Kiwanis, Carmel Valley Community Chapel, Carmel Valley Little League, members of various pet organizations and enjoy hot rods, collecting 'junk!' In addition, we are recipients of the 'coveted' Carmel Valley Chamber of Commerce 'Good Egg Award!' Cindy grew up in Carmel Valley and attended schools in Carmel from Kindergarten through High School, and recently obtained her Master's Degree in Education. Mike attended Pacific Grove High School and Monterey Peninsula College. His high school/college days revolved around cruising Alvarado Street in Monterey! One can still find him cruising occasionally in his 1955 Chevy 210, but now must balance that with a business and employees! We currently make our home in Carmel Valley--who could leave?

Cindy purchased this house in 1990

Why Cindy chose Carmel Valley

Carmel Valley is undisputedly one of the most beautiful places on earth with stellar weather. Having grown up here, we love the sense of community and the sense of belonging. People in the Valley love their community and are involved in the many charitable events that take place to keep our Village so quaint. Memories of playing as a child in the Carmel River bring me much happiness. After a good rain, we can hear the river roaring in the distance. Living in Carmel Valley is like living in a resort! Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves to see if it's for real! We married as high school sweethearts and it was our dream to one day own a home in Carmel Valley. There were a lot of baby steps to take in order to buy/build/remodel here, but we made it! We also had the pleasure of raising our two sons in Carmel Valley. What a wonderful place to grow up.

What makes this house unique

The moment we drove onto the property, we knew it was for us. The house was sadly in need of some TLC and we spent years perfecting it. It is somewhat tucked away, yet close to schools, the Village, etc. We loved the oak trees, the deer, the turkeys, and the way that neighbors were friendly, smiled, and always there to lend a helping hand.

We are within walking distance to Carmel Valley Village (well, you have to like a hill) and it's lovely wine tasting rooms. We are 20 minutes to Carmel-by-the-Sea and within thirty minutes to Monterey, Pebble Beach, and Pacific Grove. A short twenty minute drive to Laguna Seca. Five minutes to Holman Ranch, 15 minutes to Carmel Valley Ranch and The Holly Farm. We have several 'secret' swimming hole spots along the Carmel River. Within minutes one can begin a long walk or a rigorous hike at Garland Regional Park. Take a day and go to the Aquarium with our passes and watch the penguins and the sea otters frolick.

We are our dogs' 'people' and they love walking us every morning up to the sprawling Meadow and the dog-friendly Community Center Park! We also have several favorite restaurants in the Village, including Cafe Rustica, The Running Iron, Will's Fargo, Bernardus, and Los Laureles Lodge (among others). Walk to the Village and get a great cup of coffee and fresh baked goods from the Wild Goose, LoKal, or the recently opened Trailside Café.

One can also make a nice day trip to Big Sur--it's 20 minutes to Highway One and then 26 miles to Big Sur. We are just a great base for about anything....go in the opposite direction (northwest) and visit Santa Cruz and the Beach Boardwalk.

A wonderful place to spend Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

After opening up gifts my wife, daughter and 2 Goldens, loaded up the truck and headed down to paradise. The house is beautiful and welcoming. It was more house than we needed but we certainly didn't complain! The bedrooms are all large and the beds are very comfortable. The views of the valley from just about every room are magnificent. The kitchen is not large but it is certainly functional with all the pots, pans, dishes, silverware you will need.

The puppies quickly made themselves at home. Cindy was very easy to work with and had helpful suggestions. There is meadow a short walk from the house which is an awesome place to let the dogs roam free. Ditto Carmel Beach and Garland Park. For a morning latte and muffins walk into town and check out the Wild Goose Café. I know that everybody raves about Café Rustica and for good reason - delicious food a reasonable price.

Thanks Cindy for sharing your place! We will be back - next time we will bring friends and family!

Great Views & Peace and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Working with Cindy was extremely easy and effortless! I secured her home over a year in advance for my kayak club. We had a party of eight adults and the house is so spacious, we could have had more and not felt cramped. Luxury towels, bedding and a nice bottle of wine waited for us. The views and peace and quite were sublime. I had the master King in the back of the house and slept like a baby all three nights. The only odd thing is the layout of the Master King; you have to pass thru another bedroom (with a king) to get to the Master. There's french doors in the Master, so I kept the inside door closed and just went around to the kitchen via the outside. This might not work well if it's raining. The bathroom shared by the Queen and King only has a tub, no shower. Most wanted to use one of the other two showers, so timing was necessary for showering. The downstairs Queen is nice and private with a little living room to enjoy. There is plenty of places to sit, eat, visit and relax. I wish we had more time to enjoy the nice outdoor seating area, but it was a bit chilly to do so. The house is located within 2 miles of Carmel Valley Village, food, wine tasting rooms and gas stations. Everyone had a great time. I met Mike, but didn't get a chance to meet Cindy in person. I'd recommend this house for family vacations, a girls getaway, or family reunions. Parking could be a little tight if there are more than 4-5 cars.

Perfect for families, esp. for nearby wedding venues

  • 5 of 5

This house was well suited for my family and close friends who stayed here in the days leading up to my wedding at Holman Ranch. Lovely, large and clean home. Most guests agreed this house had the most comfortable beds we'd ever slept in! Perfect house for family gatherings with its outside patio and open floor plan. Full kitchen, too!

Excellent Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

Cindy was wonderful to work with from the beginning and made sure our stay was very comfortable. We had a party of 12 for a tennis tournament in Carmel Valley, so I was a little nervous if there would be enough room. My worries were essentially dismissed upon entering the house. The open floor plan from the kitchen to the dining room provided ample space for everyone to congregate for meals and drinks. The patio area is very nice for relaxing and soaking in the cool weather. I had several people from our team tell me how much they appreciated being able to stay together and that they felt very comfortable with the accommodations. Cindy’s and Mike’s home provided an excellent get away and we hope to be back soon.

Room for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

Great house. Close to Holman Ranch where all 10 of us had to go back and forth for a wedding. Cindy was more than accommodating and it was perfectly okay to bring our little dog.

Comfortable & Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 staying at Cindy's beautiful home right in Carmel Valley Village for a wedding nearby at Carmel Valley Ranch. Our group actually had rented a couple houses in the area, so we did not spend a ton of time there as this was really meant to be the "sleeping house". The pictures are absolutely accurate, the property is gorgeous and the house is beautiful, comfortable, spacious, and very clean. Cindy's home very comfortably accommodated our group, and Cindy could not have been more helpful! Getting into town was incredibly easy, even walkable if you wanted, and it was only a 10 minute drive from the wedding venue, which was terrifically convenient. I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone attending a wedding in the area.

Property is three minutes to Carmel Valley Village. Twenty to thirty minutes to Carmel, Monterey, Pebble Beach. We are a great base for just about any activity. Especially Holman Ranch, Holly Farm, Carmel Valley Ranch, and Hidden Valley weddings! One can see the road going up to Holman from our house. We are near Laguna Seca, Quail Lodge, Bernardus, Holman Ranch, Stonepine. Venture a little further and visit Big Sur and Santa Cruz. The Valley has numerous activities all year around. Hidden Valley Music Seminars has great entertainment, as well as Sunset Center in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Touring Carmel Valley Village's wine tasting rooms is a must as well as visiting the many wonderful restaurants, galleries, and specialty shops. Great hiking, horseback riding and, did I mention the wine tasting? I can also offer some Aquarium passes. The property is ideal for those attending weddings at any Carmel or Carmel Valley location. While the property is spacious, it is also nicely divided so that smaller groups of people can enjoy the living areas, without needing all of the bedrooms. We welcome smaller parties at discounted rates, and "last minuters!" If you are a hiker, Garland Park is a must and if you are a wine drinker, the 23+ wine tasting rooms are a must! I also am happy to have just a couple or two and adjust the price during off-season.

Notes:
This lovingly maintained, 3,300 s.f. home has beautiful views of Carmel Valley. There is plenty of room for family and friends to mingle together in the cozy kitchen area, or enjoy formal dining in the dining room. The master bedroom is 400 s.f. with Valley Views. The house is set up so that a couple or just a few couples can enjoy the house. The patio is great for barbecuing, with patio furniture and a patio heater for those sometimes cool winter nights. With three flat screens and a downstairs retreat, there is a niche for everyone. The main level of the home has four of the bedrooms, living area, kitchen, and bathrooms, so it is perfect for smaller groups as well as those families who are here for weddings. People like having the sitting area in/near the kitchen because almost everyone seems to gather there. There is a poker/game table next to the kitchen and guests enjoy sipping a drink, playing cards, while someone is in the kitchen!
