Overview

Carmel House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

The Zen House provides a breathtaking oasis in beautiful Carmel by the Sea. From the moment you enter The Zen House, you will be inspired by the abundant natural light, open floor plan, and Pyramid Skylight, which runs the length of this single story retreat.

Freshly remodeled in January 2015! Enhancements include new marble, granite, fixtures, and flooring throughout! Guests have been enjoying The Zen House for the past few years and now the experience is further enhanced by the home's new, luxurious, contemporary interiors, professionally designed by Martin Mitchell of Martin Perri Interiors!

Located in the heart of downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, this exclusive Carmel vacation home provides unexpected privacy, while being within walking distance to Ocean Avenue and all the village has to offer; Dining, Shopping, Culture, Art Galleries, Performing Arts, and of course the breathtaking beach!

The Zen House features classically inspired contemporary interior living environments that are elegant, warm, and relaxing. The interiors feature new high-end custom furnishings, artwork, and amenities that embrace the quality of this special home. The Asian influence of The Zen House is evident through the interior architecture and design, as well as the outdoor garden, which provides a pleasant, tranquil space to enjoy your own private corner of the magical seaside colony.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Zen House was one of the best experience we have had with a Vacation Rental. The home was clean, beautifully designed and professionally decorated by Martin Perri Interiors whose work speaks for itself, and had all the essentials to truly feel like a home away from home! My friends stay here regularly and suggested I visit and now I understand why they return - I am already planning my next visit! Enjoyed walking to town, dinners, and the beach between my relaxing time at The Zen House. I cannot wait to return soon!

Perfect Stay in Carmel

  • of 5

The Zen House will absolutely be our first choice for a place to stay in Carmel going forward. My husband and I loved the house, and were apparently the first to stay post-bathroom remodel (which was all top-notch). We came to Carmel for a long weekend/"baby moon" and wanted something where we could walk to nearby shops and restaurants, walk to the beach, lounge and read books -- the Zen House was perfect on all fronts. We were discussing what we would change over dinner last night, and there really wasn't anything we could come up with. Blaine (the home owner) and RIck (the property manager) were so responsive to any questions that came up. Also, one of the most well-appointed kitchens for a rental I've ever encountered if you don't want to go out to eat every night! We will definitely be back.

Wonderful Place to relax

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we had used VRBO, and the ZEN House set the bar very high for future trips. We can't wait to go back to Carmel and the ZEN House. So peaceful and relaxing. Loved being able to walk to dinner and the beach.

Return to the "House of ZEN"

  • 5 of 5

The truth is after 2-3 trips a year to Carmel by the Sea from Scottsdale AZ and countless VRBO stay's at other properties. My wife and I overwhelmingly decided this is the BEST VRBO in Carmel for a "Couple" to enjoy a few days of REALIGNMENT, REST & RELAXATION!!

Ownership(Blaine) is the BEST host anyone could ask for. The property is equal to or better any RITZ CARLTON... Don't think twice. Make your travel plans around the availability of "The ZEN House". You'll love it as much as we do!!

Thx ZEN and see you in the spring 2014.

Perfect as Usual

  • 5 of 5

Again the Zen House did not disappoint. I think the fact that we have stayed here three times in the last year speaks for itself. We love this place and hope to return for fourth visit in the fall!!

Second Stay at Zen House

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? We love the Zen House. This was our second stay here and we loved it just as much as the first. The house is just so warm and comfortable, it feels like a second home rather than just a rental. We are already planning our third trip for the spring. If you plan on visiting Carmel do not hesitate to stay at the Zen House.

Hard to leave.

  • 5 of 5

Our month at The Zen House was all we hoped it would be and much, much more. The home itself is stunning, yet comfortable and relaxing. The brilliant design brings the light in, even the beautiful moonlight. It could not have been cleaner or more well appointed.

When we return to the area, we would not hesitate to reserve this home again. My husband loved feeding the Blue Jays by hand.
