Overview

Carmel Valley Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Home, 4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath (Sleeps 8-9)

A beautiful home set amongst the redwood and oak trees named Nirvana's Hawks Nest. Breathtaking views, the home was remodeled by the owner and inspired by Big Sur Post Ranch and travels through Brazil and Thailand. An open floor plan with high ceilings, skylights and rap around deck, this home is ideal for most anything your imagination desires. The fire places and color scheme add to the romantic ambiance and with 3000 square feet, it's the ideal four bedroom escape from cookie cutter norm. The dining table seats eight and the stainless kitchen and custom built-ins are great for dinner parties. Additional outdoor showers and hot tub add to the romance factor plus Refuge Spa (www.Refuge.com), wine tasting, world class golf, cycling and hiking are just a few of the amenities within a few miles of this home. Indulge, live, love, exercise and eat! www.Refuge.com nearby for the ultimate in co-ed spa relaxation and rejuvenation. Massages, Bikram, Hot and Cold Plunges, Meditation, ect ect ect. Then there's alway an eco ocean adventure on my friends fast boat http://www.fastraft.com/contact.html

About Thyme Lewis

The home speaks volumes so I'll remain quiet. This one sings and is a personal favorite for views, atmosphere, dinner parties and creative writing...

Thyme Lewis purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Thyme Lewis chose Carmel Valley

This unique feeling of Big Sur without the long drive make this property an ideal spot for those who wish to feel away, yet are close to all the action Carmel by the Sea and the Monterey Peninsula have to offer. ATT Golf, Concours de' Elegance, Laguna Seca, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Point Lobos, Nepenthe, Cafe Rustica, wine tasting, golf, sightseeing, hiking on the property. We are in a dynamic micro climate rich with wildlife and a very dynamic vegetation feeling like Big Sur and Africa on this property. We are set against The Preserve which offers unlimited vistas and adventures.

What makes this chalet unique

The setting, the ease of access to everything, the delicious dinner parties, the warm sun on the mountain when downtown is fogged in, the star gazing from the hot tub or big rap around deck and an upgraded Safeway just a few minutes away make this a great place to stay. Located next to Safeway, Jeffrey's is a personal favorite and has an amazing and delicious menu for breakfast and lunch should you like to zip down the hill. Also Cafe Rustica in Carmel Village is outstanding, but a bit of a drive away from town.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Minutes from Carmel and Monterey.

Exactly what we were looking for! Well clean and maintained. It provided every essential for a weekend getaway. Looks exactly like the pictures and got more in person. It was nice coming back to the house after a half-marathon and winding down amongst our company enjoying dinner and some tv. Owner was very nice, friendly and a pleasure to meet. Thank you again!

Owner's Response: I am pleased you love and enjoy my home as much as I do when opportunities present themselves to come home to Carmel. I spend most of my time filming in Los Angeles or on location somewhere around the world, but there's no place like home. No place like home. No place like home. I don't wear heels nor am I a woman, but if I was, I'd be clicking my heels.

Ultimate Carmel Valley Get-Away Home!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome property!! Located high up Robinson Canyon Rd, the views are amazing and it is quiet and beautiful. A group of friends and I came in town to attend a wedding at Holly Farm and it was a perfect distance to the venue. Not only were we conveniently close to all the wedding festivities, but it was just a short drive down the hill to Safeway, coffee shops, Jeffrey's for brunch, and wine tasting rooms! We especially enjoyed the spacious kitchen and patio for morning brunches and hot-tub for relaxing after hikes at Point Lobos State Reserve (~18 min drive away). A perfect home to come with a group of friends or family to relax and enjoy the valley, but also be close enough to enjoy all the activities and hot spots of Carmel. House is clean, uniquely decorated, and owner is very friendly! (He mailed me back a small make-up bag I left within days!) Don't miss out on this gem.

What an amazing location! We absolutely loved our time in this beautiful Chalet! For us the convience of having Safeway right down the road was key. The views and stylistic decor made our stay feel so decadent! We could be down at the beautiful carmel beach with our dog within minutes.... Or be on a hike at the world renowned Garland park! We also loved the proximity to three world class spas!

We also enjoyed the outdoor jacuzzi under the star lit nights...... Not to mention the therapeutic indoor jacuzzi as well! We will definitly be back and couldn't imagine a better location nor a more beautiful home!!!!
