Located on a 2.7 acre, gated property in mid-Carmel Valley, our casita is a gracious guesthouse and a private adult retreat. Completely renovated in 2010, the casita is nestled among old oaks and expansive gardens with gorgeous views of Carmel Valley hills and Palisades overlooking Carmel River.

The casita, furnished with Arts & Crafts style furniture, original art, and oriental rugs, offers a spacious, light-filled setting. Decorated in warm earth tones, the entire space is welcoming and intimate. A fully equipped modern kitchen - and an outdoor grill - provide all you need to cook at home while enjoying the spectacular views from the deck. Views can also be enjoyed from the privacy of the king bedroom. The bathroom features slate tiled double sink counter and large shower. Additional amenities include a 36” flat screen cable TV, Wi-Fi, high end audio/video system, laundry, fully equipped modern kitchen, queen size sleeper sofa, generous closets and drawer space.

From this private retreat, you will have easy access to fabulous wine tasting, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Point Lobos State Park, Garland Regional Park, beautiful walking/hiking trails, world class golf courses, Carmel Beach and the quaint town of Carmel-by-the-Sea. A close-up, spectacular view of the Carmel Valley Palisades invites you to explore this unique property, located on the only mesa in Carmel Valley. Enjoy with a complimentary bottle of wine, provided upon your arrival, and including fresh coffee and flowers. The refrigerator will be stocked at your request.

The world renowned Big Sur coast is only a half hour away. Events to enjoy include the AT&T Golf Tournament, Monterey Blues Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, Carmel Bach Festival, the Concours d'Elegance, and numerous special events.

About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1994

Why The Owner chose Carmel Valley

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

fabulous property!

  • 5 of 5
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!

Superior Accommodations in Carmel Valley

  • 5 of 5
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.

Exactly as Described and More

  • 5 of 5
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!

Comfortable: Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time visiting the Carmel area and we are so pleased with staying at the casita. Chris and Robin were very hospitable. We arrived to a bottle of wine and a tour of the casita. The casita was very clean, and had all the kitchen essentials (pots, pans, utensils, including coffee filters, oil, etc). The king bed and pillows were very comfortable. We were sad to leave and wish we had spent the remainder of our vacation staying at the casita. We would recommend the casita to any of our family and friends visiting the Carmel area. We hope to come back soon to visit.
