ELEGANT MID-CENTURY WITH ROUND POOL, OLD OAKS AND GREAT VIEWS

Carmel Valley House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with pool, large stone fireplace, and great valley views

This architect-designed mid-century modern house features stunning indoor-outdoor spaces and fantastic views of Carmel Valley and Garzas Canyon. South-facing walls have huge steel and glass sliding doors that open to the round pool with surrounding Carmel stone walls, surrounding portico, patio, and expansive views.

The one acre yard is completely fenced and a great space for your dog (limit one with pre-approval) to explore and play. The property includes 75 olive trees (inspired by good friends in Greece), numerous fruit trees, berries, and a variety of drought tolerant and native plants.

The entire house was extensively updated during 2011 through 2012, with all new custom limestone counter tops, plumbing fixtures, appliances, and heating system. The kitchen features all new premium stainless steel Bosch appliances, including refrigerator, gas range, ventilation system, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. Kitchen cookware and appliances include a Nespresso espresso system (coffee pods supplied), conventional coffee-maker, gas cooktop, oven, microwave, toaster, Caphalon pots and pans, Henckels knives, and glass and flatware to serve 12. Entertaining is easy with kitchen bartops open to the dining room and also outdoors to the pool area.

All bedrooms have been remodeled and feature new Simmons premium pillow-top mattresses, Egyptian cotton high thread count sheets, artisan wool blankets from MacAuslands Woollen Mills of Prince Edward Island, down comforters, and a variety of down and other types pillows.

The master bedroom has a sliding glass door that opens to the pool area, and a private master bathroom with new tile shower and soaking tub. The second bedroom has a sliding glass door that faces east and opens to the large fenced yard.

The house is heated with a new energy-efficient radiant system, with independent temperature control for each bedroom and for the living room and kitchen. The large living room fireplace has gas logs that provide supplemental warmth and ambience.

Electronic entertainment and communication features include: open wireless broadband throughout the house and poolside areas, DirecTV high definition satellite TV, Sharp HD LED TV, Bose Cinemate sound system for TV and music, BluRay CD/DVD player, and Apple TV. All bedrooms have clock radios, and two bedrooms have Sonos speakers for streaming music and radio.

Taza's location in Carmel Valley is typically above the ocean 'fog line' and occasional fog usually burns off by mid to late morning to give sunny days. Real time weather conditions from the weather station at Taza can be found at Weather Underground by using this link:

We live in Berkeley (San Francisco Bay Area) and love Carmel Valley for the scenery, hiking, nearby beaches, food, and wine. One of us is an interior designer, and the other works in research. Taza is named for our dog Tasman, a 6 year old (acts like 3 year old) retriever mix rescue from Illinois. He loves the 1 acre fenced yard, hiking, the beach, and greeting all living creatures.

Eric Rey purchased this house in 2010

We chose this property because the location in Carmel Valley is above the usual fog line, and because of the great views and wonderful layout of the house and pool. We love the layout and the site - it was obviously custom-designed and built originally in 1956.

It's rumored that the property was a getaway for Hollywood folks - the house and pool layout, with pass-through kitchen bar, is perfect for entertaining or just hanging out.

Walking into the pool area from the front door is magical. The round pool is surrounded by Carmel stone walls and magnificent oak trees. The site is perched with expansive views of Carmel Valley and Garzas Canyon. The living room opens to the pool patio, creating a fantastic indoor/outdoor space.

Five Star Oasis!

This house is absolutely flawless! I concur with all the other reviewers - absolutely wonderful rental. We came for our daughter's wedding and being able to retreat at the end of each action-packed day to this fabulous spot was a total dream. Every morning everyone would say that they had never slept better - the beds, pillows and linens were sublime. Thank you, Eric and Harvey, for sharing your gorgeous house. You have thought of everything to make this such a special place. The nights and mornings were cold and the gas fireplace was a treat to gather around with our Nespressos. We loved floating in the swimming pool and gazing at the spectacular view. I could go on and on but others have already said it. So hard to leave - I hope we can come back!

Living the dream ......

I stayed in this lovely house for 8 nights in September and every aspect of the property and the rental experience exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this house unreservedly.
The location is very convenient for the airport and all the attractions of Carmel, Monterey and the Big Sur coastline with plenty of grocery and dining options nearby. The views from the pool are tranquil and scenic.
The house was stylish, comfortable and very clean and was equipped and furnished to a very high standard.
I spent far more time relaxing around the pool in the sunshine than I had planned to, but it was hard to tear yourself away when everything you need to really unwind was so close at hand.
The kitchen was a delight to cook in, the entertainment options were excellent, the bed was comfortable and the pool was a dream.
Away from the house, I would recommend the Carmel Food tour as a great way to get to know the town and I particularly enjoyed tasting and pairing olive oils with balsamic vinegars at Trio Carmel (try Chocolate Balsamic over vanilla gelato).
Point Lobos state park is compact but has spectacular views every direction you turn and the coastal drive to Big Sur, and as far beyond as you like to go, is majestic and breathtaking.
Thank you to Eric for being so helpful and for making everything so easy and so enjoyable.

Eric's property is nothing short of beautiful! This open floor plan over looking the Carmel valley is perfect for a family or group of friends looking for a relaxing weekend. There is so much light, the interior and exterior design is amazing and the pool is awesome!

I'm already planning my next visit!

Stunning property with fabulous views

We stayed in this property in July 2013, 2 adults and 2 children aged 8 & 10. The house is stunning, tucked away in a peaceful and very private location in Carmel Valley with almost surreal views from the living areas/pool and patio.

The house is spacious, really well equipped with everything you need, very clean and comfortable and with plenty of thoughtful touches provided by the owners. Beautiful interior design, imaginatively laid out and curated with interesting art. Our kids loved the pool and spent hours playing in there - great size for kids and perfect temperature (the owners arranged a little top up heating for a minimal cost to keep the pool consistently warm). Also the fact that the house sits just beyond the marine fog layer is a real bonus - we hadn't realised that this would be an issue during July (we'd heard it referred to as 'June Gloom' so assumed the coast would be sunny and clear in July/August), so coming back into the sunshine after visiting the coast was great.

We loved the area - in fact ended up changing our travel plans so we could spend 3 extra nights around Carmel. Pebble Beach / 17 mile drive area is fabulous for taking in the views and the wildlife. Big Sur area is stunning (hire a convertible for this bit if you can - definitely worth it!). We encountered seals, sea lions, plenty of sea birds and birds of prey, woodpeckers & deer during our travels around the vicinity.

In summary - we loved everything about the house and the area, would definitely recommend this as a fabulous vacation rental. The owners are super-responsive and efficient - replying to emails really promptly and great feedback after our stay, prompt return of security deposit etc. We hope to return some time!

My husband and I just returned from an amazing two night/three days at Taza. We had a wonderful experience and can't say enough good things about the house. This is a beautiful, spacious, clean home and has everything one could need and more. Not only is the house gorgeous but the pool area is fantastic! There is an overhang for shade and plenty of sun for those who want to get a tan...PERFECT for entertainment. The walled, fenced in yard offers the utmost privacy. We highly recommend this property and look forward to a return visit. Thank you, Harvey and Eric for taking very good care of us!

The property is about a 15 minute drive from the beaches in Carmel and Monterey, and far enough inland to avoid coastal fog most of the time. Carmel Valley Village is about one mile from the property, and has plenty of great wine-tasting, galleries, and restaurants. In the immediate area there are ample recreational opportunities with miles of great trails for hiking and horseback riding. Multiple golf courses are within 5-7 miles, and Laguna Seca Raceway is 7 miles away.
