ENCHANTED, SPACIOUS & SECLUDED ENCLAVE ESTATE

Carmel Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate Property, Main house 3+3, (Sleeps 6), and Guest Cottage 1+1 (Sleeps 2)

A charming and eloquently designed contemporary craftsman home and humble cottage on a secluded estate. With the help of a Feng Shui master, our home has been designed to keep your Chi in tact! This Carmel getaway provides privacy, beauty, and plenty of outdoor spaces, while still being walking distance to the shops and restaurants of downtown. Hiking trails and the Forest Theatre are also just a stones throw away from this special hideaway. Enjoy the peaceful sounds of nature from this one of a kind retreat, backing up to the forested beauty of Carmel's Mission Creek.

This peaceful setting features views of the Carmel Forest, sounds of the babbling Mission Creek, distant crashing waves, and numerous song birds to sooth your spirits. Vaulted ceilings, fireplaces in the master and living room, and a handmade spiral staircase are just a few features that make this home special. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath home is on .6 acre lot in Carmel's Mission Creek area. Stairs from the street / garage level lead down to expansive brick patios and entrance to the main living area: large entry with sitting area around fireplace, expansive living room area with built in window seats for panoramic views of forest and tile and maple wood floors throughout, dining area separated from kitchen over a service bar, kitchen with gas range, refrigerator, and tile counters. One guest bedroom and bath (tub/shower) are also on this level. Upstairs is the master suite with fireplace, balcony, en suite bath with jacuzzi tub and shower over; and third suite with balcony and en suite bath (shower). All 3 bathrooms are elegantly designed and oversized with stone tile floors and counters.

We welcome a maximum number of six guests (including children) in the main house and 2 in the 'optional' guest cottage which is located across a cute little bricked breezeway adjacent to the main house.

After a challenging day of shopping, beach-going, golfing, or dining, this special home is perfect for relaxation and recharging for your next day's adventure! Surrounded by the forest and the sounds of nature, this is truly a special place!

There is driveway (on a hill) parking for one normal size SUV vehicle and additional on-street parking 150-200' away on Forest Rd.

Sorry, NO SMOKING and NO PETS (no matter how small or trained).

Note, the cottage will not be rented to other guests and is not available to guests unless the cottage option was booked during the reservation process.

The experience!

Get away in luxury amongst the redwoods and oaks. Picnic in your own private nature sanctuary. Enjoy a monarch butterfly dance. Listen to the distant elephant seal calls or the trickle from babbling creek below. Watch the wildlife pass by. You may see the red fox come out to play. See the moonlight imprint evanescent shadows of oaks onto natures canvas. Ponder a stroll to the ocean. Walk to town for coffee, shopping, Art Gallery strolling, exquisite cuisine,or simply stay in and unwind. Walk out the back door a few steps to the Mission Trails for a Gorgeous Nature Hike. If you are looking to clear your mind, this is the place to do it!

Guestbook comments from the owner
The house and setting is beautiful. We had the the most awesome time staying at this house, and cannot wait to come back. If you like walking it's a delight and refreshing.

Beautiful quiet home with spacious rooms

  • 5 of 5
This house is a real jewel. It is located at the edge of the mission trail. A great walking loop is down the trail to the Mission, then Santa Lucia to Scenic Rd into town. The house was clean, modern and spacious. Parking is about 100 yes away on the street unless you park on a steep slope in front of the garage- but it was no problem. The patios are big and private, looking over the woods. The house was better than described, making my first rental through VRBO a success. i highly recommend it to anyone.

Our stay in Carmel

  • 4 of 5
Very nice home with a large secluded backyard. Very relaxing to come to. Driveway is steep & is hard to back up so I recommend to park on the street. Easy to walk to downtown Carmel by the Sea.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
This is such a beautiful home with amazing patios and landscaping! Most of our time at the house was spent enjoying the outdoors. Spent Sunday morning enjoying the Mission Creek Trail. We saw two deer across the creek from the house. Quiet and secluded, but close enough to 101 to get us on our way to adventures. We enjoyed walking downtown and to the beach, plus we got a nice workout. We didn't want to leave this lovely house! Thanks so much for making our first VRBO fantastic!

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5
We came for the Big Sur marathon. The location was perfect, close to everything we needed! The house was nice and the grounds so beautiful and serene! We loved relaxing outside! The driveway is a bit steep but we were able to manage it. Also there are a lot of stairs but not a problem for us. This was so much better than a hotel!!

A relaxing and wonderful stay in Carmel.

  • 5 of 5
I was was a bit apprehensive at first since my husband just had leg surgery. The owner was extremely nice telling us all the potential challenges my husband may confront. The home was perfect with multiple entry points allowing my husband to stay on one floor of this gorgeous home. The house sits away from from the street and neighbors so it completely hidden and secluded as noted in the VRBO description. We had a taxi drop us off at the home so we had no choice but to walk everywhere. We spent one entire after noon walking down the Mission Creek trail to the Mission then over to Scenic Road drive then walked up the beach to Carmel's main beach then strolled up Ocean to town for an earlier dinner. We slept like babies for three nights. The house is very convenient for visit to anyone of the town's theaters. We could even hear the pleasant operatic sounds of the Forest Theater. My 78 year husband is not a good traveler and now he wants to retire in Carmel. I would say that this house had a lot to do with his great experience. We'll be coming back next year to look for homes. We give this home 2 extended thumbs up!

Comfortable With 3 Bedrooms and 3 Bathrooms

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 5 nights-the house was comfortable and it was very nice to have a separate bathroom for each couple that stayed at the house. We met the caretaker, and he was very nice and helped us with our luggage. Two bedrooms are upstairs and 1 downstairs- kitchen, dining table, lovely patio, and comfortable living room. Only 1 car can park in front of the garage, additional cars park on the side street and walk down to the house-it worked out on the fine. Grocery store about 2 miles away- and only a couple of blocks from downtown area of Carmel By the Sea.
