Perfect retreat with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a quiet, romantic, out of the way retreat with out of this world views for our 30th anniversary, and that is exactly what we got here. Take groceries with you because you may not want to leave. We spent 1 week here and left only once to replenish supplies. (Not a quick trip away- the route to Carmel Village is about 20-30 minutes and on a winding road) We had two small dogs with us and they enjoyed this property too. Birds and hummingbirds of all kinds started and ended our days with lots of pool time in between. The 360 degree views are beautiful & varied, and although the property is not flat you can do some walking. Neighbors are barely seen and very rarely heard - it was our private retreat. There is a very nice bocce court and horse shoe pit located steps away from the house. The house interior is more than adequate and comfortable. We relaxed by the fire pit and watched stars every night. It was a perfect anniversary!
Cons: gnats were a little bothersome at times (a portable fan helped us), we did some of our own landscape patio/deck clean up each day (we did not mind this), number and location of bathrooms might not work for larger groups, check your cell service provider because service is limited
Pros: Quiet & peaceful, breathtaking views, romantic. Karen was accessible and helpful and offered any assistance we might want. Kids who need constant stimulation could get bored, but others would find the bocce, horseshoes, pool and TV enough
The bottom line: This property fulfilled our expectations nicely and we had a wonderful week. We wanted to respect the property and the owner's efforts and leave it as we found it. All the pros definitely outweigh any cons in our opinion. We had a great time!

Perfect spot to relax with family!!

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....
