Carmel House Rental Photos and Description
4 bedroom, 3 bath vacation property sleeps 6-8 - K, Q, 2TW, 1 Q sofabed
Welcome to “Fair Oaks”! A true Carmel Experience!
This enchanting storybook 3-bedroom, 2-bath house and detached 1-bedroom, 1-bath guest room mingles European charm with the rich history of Carmel-by-the-Sea.
Located in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance from the many shops, boutiques and restaurants of downtown Carmel, the 2-story Swiss chalet-style home is set back from the street, with a private fenced garden and several outdoor seating areas, ideal for casual meals or enjoying cocktails. Hydrangeas, ferns and fuchsias adorn the garden, and containers with blooming geraniums line the home’s upper story.
This house is only blocks from Clint Eastwood’s Mission Ranch restaurant and locals’ favorite River Beach. It is a 10-minute drive to historic Monterey, quaint Pacific Grove and the world-class golf courses of 17-Mile Drive. Big Sur is 45 minutes away.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, day passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for local wine tasting, local organic coffee to start your mornings 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, spa bathrobes, plush towels, luxury linens and everything you need for a day at the beach.
Evenings can be spent in the living room around the gas Carmel stone fireplace, where families or couples can enjoy conversation, board games, or reading books on local history. Adding to the Old World ambiance are colorful hand-hooked rugs, stained glass, original artwork and whimsical antiques.
The adjacent dining room has a round wood table that can seat 6 and a deep blue folk-style hand-painted bureau. A collection of metal ornamental hearts hangs above French doors that open to the patio.
The kitchen, painted in robin’s egg blue, includes butcher block wood countertops, a handsome metal hood over a stainless steel gas stove, a dishwasher and stainless steel refrigerator. Open or glass-paned cupboards reveal colorful dishware in folk patterns. A nearby bistro table and chairs in front of a window is the perfect place to enjoy coffee and croissants while overlooking the patio. Just off the kitchen is a mudroom/laundry area with cobblestone floor, convenient for stashing beach gear and other items.
The master bedroom on this floor features a king with a blue-and-white folk patterned coverlet, a painted armoire and an antique drop-leaf desk. A Dutch door opens to the patio. The sleek gray and white master bath features sparkling crystal wall sconces, marble countertops and a marble-tiled shower.
An owl theme predominates in a charming 2nd-story bedroom with a wicker queen bed, a stack of vintage suitcases serving as a bedside stand, an armoire and a wicker chair. A small balcony overlooks the living room, and an outdoor balcony looks out on the patio.
A 3rd bedroom contains twin beds with wooden headboards enlivened by orange, rose, yellow and chartreuse coverlets. The two second-story bedrooms share a gray, white and mossy green bathroom with tiled floor and tub/shower with marble-lined enclosure.
A separate detached guest room with a queen sofa bed and table and 3rd bathroom with shower is the perfect place for a writer, artist or someone needing an office. A comfortable sofa sleeper is perfect for additional guests.
