We love the Central Coast, a special place we call Paradise. In 2003 we bought a hilltop property in upper Carmel Valley and now enjoy magnificent mountain views and serenity. We are always inspired by the natural surroundings of the beautiful Santa Lucia Mountains. We enjoy entertaining with our friends, family and grandchildren. From every visitor's perspective, our little corner of the world beckons vacationers to return again and again.

Karen Hoffman purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

We fell in love with Cachagua (Upper Carmel Valley), which reminds us of Tuscany. We love the quiet solitude and 360 degree mountain views from our hilltop vineyard. For city people who want sun and country, this is the place!

Mountain views forever, quiet, private and peaceful. A wonderful retreat!

AMAZING FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We took our family to Karen's beautiful house this past weekend and were greeted by a warm hostess and a gorgeous home! We had a one year old with us who had a blast, but also, we forgot her baby blanket there and Karen had it sent to us wthib two days of us being gone. My only tips would be to bring bug spray with you as you are in the mountains and to make sure to grocery shop on your way. This house is a treasure and you will love your experience there!

FANTASTIC WEEKEND AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
What a spectacular spot! Every window catches the beauty of regions' wilderness and the garden's are a bird watcher's paradise. We spent a delightful weekend enjoying the property, cooking great meals, and relaxing. You are far enough away (20+ minutes outside of Carmel Valley) to really slow things down and decompress. The owner provided every amenity and gave us a lovely introduction to the house, which was very welcoming, but in no way intrusive. We truly felt like we were staying in a "home," not a rental property.

It was a peaceful and comfortable weekend away with friends, our young son, and our dogs. We were sad to leave and look forward to another visit! Thank you, Karen, for sharing your beautiful spot (and your wine). It has a beauty and spirit all it's own.

BLISSFUL PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, and our dog, rented this house to enjoy a birthday/Valentine's weekend. Everything about our stay was perfect! The house is amazing - high up on a hill in Carmel Valley, with amazing 360 views. The landscaping is beautiful and the house is surrounded by hummingbirds and other wildlife. There are chairs and hammocks to relax and soak up the natural beauty. The house itself is perfect - excellent layout for relaxing and entertaining alike. The bedrooms are all a decent size and the house is tastefully decorated. The kitchen has every appliance and utensil a chef needs. With a pool, hot tub and steam room, you even have your very own private spa!

This home is secluded and peaceful due to its location - you will need a car to get around but it is a short drive to Carmel Valley and Carmel-by-the-Sea. It is ideal for a couple, family or group of friends looking to get away, entertain in the house and enjoy the local scenery.

The owner was extremely helpful and responsive both before and during the stay. Karen has thought of every detail to ensure that her home feels like your home. Blissful perfection!

FANTASTIC SUCLUDED VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a weekend birthday party. Everyone was amazed by the 360 degree panoramic views that surround this amazing house. Every detail has been thought of; there was nothing we wanted that was not available. Eight people slept comfortably, and we all had a great time. The pool, deck, and grounds offered plenty of space to entertain and plenty to do (horse-shoes, bocchi, etc.) We highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway.

This is a great house. The views and grounds are fabulous. The owners have done a great job with the landscaping, which attracts a ton of birds. Karen was very helpful and responsive. We would love to come back some time.

360 DEGREES OF BLISS!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend, Nathalie and I were celebrating our second year together after being apart for 21 years (that's another story). We stayed at Karen’s beautiful country house for 3 days and two nights. It was amazing!

Coffee out the front door with the sun rising, late morning walks thru the vineyard of Syrah grapes, lounging by the pool with a beverage. Views EVERYWHERE you turn. Nathalie and I kept looking at each other as if to say "can you believe this!" BBQ'd one night and dined outside with the sun setting and cooked dinner inside the next night. Great kitchen, everything you need in the pantry and fully stocked drawers with all the tools needed to cook anything.

The bedroom area upstairs had lot's of light and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom is simple with a nice shower and good sized bathtub ( a necessity for Nathalie). Everything throughout the house was clean and all of the appliances were easy to use and worked properly. Hot tub temperature was perfect and the hammock just next to it was big enough for two.

Karen was cool, she met us there upon arrival, gave us a tour and then let us be. We brought all the food needed to cook our dinners so we never left the property.

This is truly one of the most special spots on earth...enjoy.
