Perfect peaceful family getaway or reunion location. Sit and enjoy the gardens while listening to the waves crash on the nearby Carmel Beach. Our home is a 1750 sqft 3bed / 2bath beach-home with soaring vaulted ceilings and wall to wall LIGHT! It's tastefully appointed to help you immerse yourself in a California beach experience.
There's lots of living, cooking and 'kids play' space inside and outside the home. There's comfortable dining and sitting space for 8 in the living room, the dining room and on the back patio. We have 4 flat screen TVs, all equipped with DirecTV and Netflix. There is a 3D TV with 9 viewing glasses, a3D DVD player and a VCR and a small video library including a few 3D movies! , so there's plenty of options.
Broadband Wifi reaches all areas of the house. The sound system is a professional 6-speaker discrete in-ceiling system. Use our CD's or bring your own iPod music.
If it's a good book, you prefer, we have a small library tastefully hidden away next to the living room fireplace. The gas fireplace is controlled electronically with a remote for convenience and safety.
When it comes to relaxing after your tranquil Carmel day, you can further indulge yourself in our memory foam mattresses in every bedroom.
In the morning, take your time to enjoy a fresh coffee drawing in the fresh scented morning air in our extensive flower gardens to the front and back of the house. We have many roses, magnolia, lemon, orange, mandarin, Japanese maple, Mexican sage, agapanthus and many more. In short, the typical Carmel paradise. Don't be surprised to be sharing it with hummingbirds, squirrels and blue jays.
The young kids will love the double bunk bed room, with their own special secret bonus room filled with goodies!
It's an ideal location for families with easy access to both Carmel beaches (5 blocks away). The Mission Ranch Hotel and Restaurant (owned by Clint Eastwood) is a fantastic restaurant to have 200 yards from the front door. It has a Piano Bar as well as outdoor seating to watch the sunsets and the sheep !The Sunday Brunch is highly recommended ! They operate a first come first served system. So you have to arrive and join their wait list. The electronic buzzer they give you to call you for your table works at our home. So, wander down, make your booking, pick up the tag, and have a glass of wine at home while waiting. This gives some bonus time for those who have settled into the Carmel pace and need a little longer to get ready ;-)
Less than a mile away is the shopping and restaurants of 'Carmel by the Sea'. It's also a pleasant 20mins stroll down Scenic Drive overlooking the beach. Nearby is Point Lobos State Reserve. It's beaches are so beautiful several movie beach scenes have been filmed there.
The famous Carmel Mission, and Mission Trail Park are also about half a mile walk. Beautiful beaches and coastal paths extend for 3 miles past Carmel River Valley Beach towards Point Lobos.
We live in the Bay Area and have fallen, completely and utterly in love with Carmel. We love to visit our home there as often as possible. Come and see why !!
The Owner purchased this house in 2011
In a word, location ! Our home is so close to the 2 beautiful carmel beaches. Imagine having to decide which one to walk to !!
For dinner the choice is even more difficult. A gentle 200 yards to the ex-mayor's mission ranch hotel & restaurant, or a short trip to ocean avenue for carmel's very best restaurants. Our favorite there is Dametra, but Mission Ranch is so relaxing with its Piano Bar and outside seating watching the sunset and the sheep !
Our home can sleep 8 comfortably. It's 1750 sq ft. You can make dining arrangements for 8 indoors or outdoors, in the back yard ! The living room also seats 8 for movie watching. All bedrooms have slumber-guarantee memory foam mattresses!
We have 4 flat screen TV's throughout the home with DirecTV, Netflix, 3D movies and DVD's.
We spent the week of New Year's Eve in Carmel at this charming home. Two couples and a 5 year old - it was the perfect set up for us! They even have a children's playroom which is adorable and perfect for kids of any age.
The beach decor was crisp, clean and fresh - perfect for Carmel. It was very comfortable and had a great layout for hanging out with our family. Nice big open living room, kitchen and dining area. There are lots of windows which made the home bright and gorgeous. The backyard is great - fun for grilling and hanging out.
June kept in touch with us before, during and after our stay. She is so lovely and ensured our stay was perfect. Rick is wonderful. He met us at the home when we checked in, and he went above and beyond the entire week to ensure our stay was comfortable.
The home is walking distance to the beach. It is a short 5 minute walk to Clint Eastwood's restaurant, The Mission Ranch; they have a beautiful patio that we enjoyed for sunset each night. It is an easy (and pretty!) 15 minute walk into town.
My husband loves to scuba dive, and it is a short 10 minute drive to Point Lobos which has amazing diving (and hiking!). The views at Point Lobos are breath taking.
This home is perfect for couples and small kids or just couples on a romantic getaway. It exceeded our expectations! We will rent if for our next trip to Carmel and recommend it to all of our friends.
Thank you June and Rick for making our stay perfect!

5 Star beautiful property and very comfortable. The decor was so fun and we felt so comfortable. We enjoyed the location so much. The beach was only 5 minutes away and it was a beautiful walk each morning. Town was so much fun and great food and was a 20 minute walk. Clint Eastwood's restaurant, The Mission is 5 minutes away and the patio was beautiful.
We enjoyed happy hour at the house on the back patio. The house exceeded our expectations.
Thank you June for a lovely weekend! We appreciated Rick greeting us open arrival. Thanks to both of you for making this an enjoyable experience.
This home was perfect for our stay in Carmel. It was super clean, very comfortable and well appointed! June kept in touch before our trip and Rick met us at the house to make sure we knew how everything worked. They were wonderful to work with and the house exceded our expectations! We will plan to stay here on our next trip to Carmel.
I cannot recommend this house highly enough! My family and I stayed here for a long weekend and the pictures do not do it justice. The entire house is totally redone and modern, and I don't think I have ever slept in a more comfortable bed. My daughter just turned 1 and spent the entire time playing in the garage that has now been converted to a playroom - full of toys and games. A short walk to the beach and tons of other Carmel activities. This house was the perfect vacation home and we will definitely be staying here again!
A charming house perfectly situated to downtown Carmel, the Mission and an incredible walking path along the beach.
A very clean and spacious house that is ideal for couples and children.
We rented this home for a few days, and definitely will return. From the street the house is unassuming, but it is quite a lovely property. The inside is wonderfully light and airy, nicely decorated, uncluttered, and very clean. The beds and linens were extremely comfortable. The layout and flow of the house is nice; it just has a very good feel to it.
While we were only two adults and a child, the house's size and layout could easily accommodate two families, with children sharing the room with two sets of bunk beds.
We walked to both beaches, as well as to town with no problem. We even visited the mission one morning, which is just a few minutes walk away. Those who don't like walking or have limitations might need something closer in, but for us the location was great.
All in all, we would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Point Lobos State Park is about 3 miles away and its possible to walk there from the house if you walk roadside for about 400 yards.
The town of Carmel has many world class restaurants, art galleries and boutiques. We and our property manager will be happy to give you our recommendations.
Further afield are the world famous golf courses and Monterrey bay aquarium, Cannery row and whale watching. Our property manager can secure discounted tickets for Monterrey bay aquarium.
Golf and nature walks are plentiful and you are just north of the world famous Big Sur Highway 1 ! It's one of those 'must do's', to drive this road to Santa Barbara or Hearst castle with the top down!
