We have been residents of Carmel Valley for 25 years and can't imagine living anywhere else. We love it here! The beauty, tranquility and the people make it a paradise for us. We are both artists, a painter and a sculptor, and our studio is on our property. Our gorgeous views from the only mesa in Carmel Valley make our property one of the most unique in the valley. Bixby, our wonderful standard poodle, shares our property and loves to hike with us in the many parks in our area. He is also a therapy dog and visits patients at our local hospital. Come and share the bounty of life in the Carmel Valley / Carmel area.

It is beautiful here! Our location is in the sun belt of Carmel Valley – beyond the coastal fog most of the time. It’s a short drive to shopping, services, dining and entertainment plus unlimited outdoor sports and recreation. The local airport is 20 minutes away.
This unique property is truly a private, tranquil adult retreat. A garden of native plants, a meadow and dozens of old oak trees surround Frank Lloyd Wright style architecture on a mesa that overlooks the Carmel River. Expansive views of rock outcroppings and the hills beyond offer a backdrop for endless bird activity. Our location is the best of both worlds.....equi-distant from shopping in the town of Carmel and wine tasting in Carmel Valley Village. Here is an ideal setting for a peaceful, relaxing stay while experiencing all the Monterey Peninsula has to offer.
Thanks Robin and Chris,
Your Casita feels like home to us. It is so beautiful to the eyes and comfortable. The view of the mountain is inspirational. We are in love with your dog. The flowers on the table are beautiful.
This was my second visit to the Casita and it was even better this time with the place as beautifully appointed as ever (thanks so much Robin for the gorgeous Red tulips!) and the addition of Bailey, the new puppy. It's definitely the nicest home away from home I have ever stayed at.
From the moment we pulled through the gates, we knew we had picked a fabulous place to vacation. Chris & Robin (Bixby too!) were the perfect hosts - not too obtrusive but always available if needed. The casita was more special than we could have imagined. Clean, spacious and with everything you could possibly need. You feel like you are in a tree house when sitting out on the back deck! And the grounds - from the fruit trees to the vegetable garden to the rose garden; a true Shangri-La. The view out back - beautiful. Hard to get the feel for this property in pictures. You need to experience it in person. I would highly recommend this vacation property to anyone. Great location to Monterey Bay Aquarium, Hearst Castle, Pebble Beach, Carmel and many other destinations. Chris & Robin have put together a binder of great restaurants, walking areas and shopping that is very helpful. We had a truly special vacation!
Absolutely superior lodgings. Spectacular grounds and accommodations. The attention to detail throughout was intelligent, thoughtful, and astonishing. My wife and I have been fortunate to have stayed at a number of top-tier, architecturally-designed locations around the world and this residence was eye-popping. A plutonium experience. As we departed from Chris and Robin's wonderful casita, we both were thankful for our good fortune and we remarked how our next few days -- at The Post Ranch Inn at Big Sur -- might be such a disappointment. Our stay at Post Ranch wasn't, of course, but Chris and Robin's welcoming, generous spirit and gracious hospitality were superb. Do not miss staying at this casita on your travels to Carmel Valley.

Perfect place to relax and from there explore the great scenery and coastal places. Lots of privacy and a luxerious casita. We had a great time. Very helpful owners. Nice to play balls with Bixby, the poedel.
My husband and I stayed at the casita for a quick 2 night stay as part of a work trip and had a wonderful time. The casita is immaculate, with no detail, spared and the owners are present, helpful, and obviously care about their home and grounds. We felt welcome the entire time we were there and only wished we could have stayed longer. Will definitely consider staying here again if/when our travels permit!
"We came to your casita anticipating a quiet intimate time celebrating our 25th anniversary. Your incredible environment did not disappoint on any level. From comfortable furniture and bedding to aesthetic decor, artwork and architecture - we could not have been happier. Your space is truly exceptional."
