About Karen Hoffman

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

Why Karen Hoffman chose Carmel Valley

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!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

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

Perfect spot to relax with family!!

  • 5 of 5
Spent 4 nights in paradise! The pictures do not do justice to the 360 degree views from the house - morning coffee with sunrise and hummingbirds to sunset with campfire and marshmellows!!! We had every amenity we needed in the house. Comfortable bedrooms, overstocked kitchen with all the supplies you needed to cook a beautiful meal to enjoy outside on the patio watching the sunset. It was almost a shame to have booked excursions into Monterey and Carmel as our children did not want to leave the villa. They enjoyed their afternoon swim / hot tub, tether ball practice and first attempts at bocce ball and horseshoes. Karen was a pleasure to deal with during the booking process. No issues with arranging details or questions we had regarding the property. The only word of warning to would be renters is GPS is useful to find property and the 10 mile drive in from Carmel Village is a winding (but worthwhile) road....

Retreat to Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
This is a fabulous house and the grounds are gorgeous. It's exactly as shown in the pictures. Had lots of space, hummingbirds are everywhere and the beds were comfortable. Bathrooms are small and you have to go thru one bedroom to get to the shower. I wouldn't put any late sleepers in that room or your down to only one bathroom. Buy your groceries before you leave town. It's a long way back to get anything you forgot. This is a great house but the view and gardens steal the show. We enjoyed our stay and I highly recommend this vacation rental.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family of seven stayed for 4 nights. Karen greeted us at a Carmel grocery store and led the 23 mile scenic drive to the beautiful home. The house itself is wonderful, but for us, it was the outdoor space that we will remember most. The pool, fire pit, hummingbird feeders, the bocce and horseshoe pits accented the amazing views. We ate every meal outside to enjoy the weather and the setting. And it is easy to have day trips to Carmel, Point Lobos State Park, Monterey, and Big Sur. We would definitely recommend.

A Beautiful and Tranquil Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the beautiful tuscan villa for 4 days and it totally surpassed our expectations! The views were amazing, the grounds perfection and the amenities both tasteful and very comfortable. The pool temperature was perfect, too. The owner, Karen, is very accommodating and friendly. We are definitely going back (and our dogs are already looking forward to it as well).

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.
