About Desiree

I am a full time artist making illuminated shell sculpture and lampshades from natural seashells. Since 1974! I still find them absolutely beautiful. Then there's the gardens– when I need a 15 minute work break I snip and pluck, rake and squirt. As much as I love to squirt water– I shouldn't be living in California!!

Desiree purchased this apartment in 1982

Why Desiree chose Carmel Valley

It suited me completely in mood. When I first saw it, as a private sale, I couldn't speak. It had just the kind of 'bones' I wanted in a house plus a killer view. I just couldn't speak! Stunned disbelief. I rallied only after I left!! And bought it immediately.

What makes this apartment unique

–MONTEREY BAY AQUARIUM passes are included with your stay. Good for two people with a 49.00 value. Go over and over again instead of trying to see it all in one day!

–WINE TASTING is big here because we have such an excellent wine growing appelation– ask me about Tasting Rooms.

–WILD TURKEYS and deer heavily populate the area and are wonderful to observe.

–FIND AN INTERESTING BOOK and read it while you're here. Ask me for recommendations and tell me where your interests lie. But leave the books where you found them when you depart.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Hi Desiree,



Hope this finds you well. I stayed in your Library apartment last October with my husband Fred. We were only with you about 3 nites, but we had a great stay and I know we told you so before we left. However, since back in NJ, I have often thought about what a beautiful, magical place you live in and would be remiss not to tell you how the experience of meeting you and seeing how you live impacted me in a very positive way. NJ--if you've never been, is quite different.



Not sure when we'll get the chance to get back to Carmel Valley, as you well know there's a lot of world to see (we leave for Spain next week). In any event, I just wanted to tell you how fantastic it was to meet you and learn a little bit about your life--as well as poke thru a few of your books!



Thanks again,

Nina"

A Welcome Escape

  • 5 of 5
This cozy apartment was perfect for my significant others and my stay in Carmel Valley. The place was well kept and lives up to its "library" name. Books fill every nook and cranny!

We were able to spend time in the Valley, make a day trip to Big Sur and visit Carmel by the Sea all in one weekend. An excellent trip if you ask me.

It should be noted that it was a pleasure to rent from Desiree. Would stay again!

This is Alexandra, we stayed at your Library cottage last weekend with Oksana.
I just want to take a moment out of your already busy day to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay. Your place is really amazingly cool, unusually warm and cozy, wonderfully decorated. Every little detail, from Champagne, not wine, glasses to a cork fitting any bottle, just in case of leftover (!) to multiple colorful throws, to cigarette lighter, to pillow cases in soft coral color matching paint of the book shelves to numerous artistic pieces and creations makes this a place to remember and definitely one to come back to. Your property, hospitality, your smile, care, desire to make your guests’ stay nothing but a pleasure and enjoyment really made it a memorable weekend. We all loved it; we are still talking about you, all your art pieces, all the knick knacks and chachkas, your unusual designs and decorations, remarkable lights and chandeliers and last but not least – Audrey Hepburn! Thank you, thank you, thank you for allowing us to enjoy your company, your place, your hospitality (freshly roasted tomatoes - icing on the cake!). This place deserves a 10+star rating, I really mean it.

Excellent, as expected

  • 5 of 5
A relaxing get away, with fun wineries nearby, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium tickets were a fantastic bonus. The Artist's Library worked well for the two of us, plus a baby. We'd definitely come back to visit.
