Overview

Carmel-by-the-Sea House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 baths, 1/2 bath, sleeps 16

Watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean, marveling at the beauty and craftsmanship of this handsome home, the perfect proportions of the architecture, the superb choice of wood and appointments, the crafted and stylized door handles and yacht quality cabinetry brings a sense of joy, serenity and knowing that people who really care built this home. Nestled between two canyons yet within walking distance of the historic Highlands Inn and renowned Point Lobos State Park, this place is a perfect get-away retreat for reflection and remembering what matters in life; a great place for reunions, family gatherings, joyous reconnections; a serene place for relieving the stress of life through immersion in the wondrous presence of nature.

Nestled between two canyons yet within walking distance of the historic Highlands Inn and renowned Point Lobos State Park, this place is a perfect getaway retreat for reflection and remembering what matters in life; a great place for reunions, family gatherings, joyous reconnections; a serene place for relieving the stress of life through immersion in the wondrous presence of nature. Awake in the midst of a Monterey Pine Forest to birdsong and repose at night to the crashing sound of waves and the sea lions barking in the distance. Enjoy a card game with friends by the fire or a glass of wine while admiring Bird Rock of Point Lobos State Park from the den. Indulge yourself in the relaxing warmth of the hot tub or renew your spirit in the upstairs sauna. Revel in the true pleasure of being alive and experiencing the love of God through his most beautiful creations.

Pacific View Retreat is ideal for reunions, special birthdays and anniversaries, wedding groups,and corporate retreats.

This house was not just built, it was artfully molded throughout. The front door is an artistic master piece, a stunning large block of redwood with a door handle crafted into a beautiful curve much like a whale’s tale. The cabinetry is exquisite - made from exotic woods including mahogany, cherry, Alaskan cedar and Pacific Coast redwood. Each room is a unique statement of appreciation and gratitude for nature’s beauty - including fine artwork, hand painted sinks, hardwood floors, and hand crafted furniture. The immense master suite has its own study/ exercise room where you can view the Pacific while cycling on the exercise bike or work on your laptop while enjoying view of Point Lobos. Not a detail was missed in this architectural spectacle designed by local architect, Peter Davis.

Spacious and clean, this 4000 square ft. house provides plenty of quiet private space as well as grand joining spaces. It is large enough to find a quiet corner for reading or meditating and has ample together spaces for playing board games, chatting over the day's visit to local sites, or relaxing in front of a movie. The spacious kitchen with adjoining greenhouse breakfast nook is alive with morning sun and a fun space for group cooking and cheer. In the great room, the formal walnut hand crafted dining table can seat twelve for large dinner gatherings in the warmth of the fire place. The large windows throughout the house bring nature inside, with magnificent scenic views that create the feeling that nature outside and inside are integrated. Two decks provide sweeping ocean views. Pacific View Retreat sleeps 12 in 3 kings, 2 queens and 2 twin beds. 2 sleeper sofas (1king and 1queen) can accommodate another 4 guests.

We just spent a week at Pacific View Retreat for a family reunion/retreat/celebration. It was just the perfect house for the eight of us, both the house itself and the location. It was overcast nearly all the time and we didn't even care. The house is very well appointed, beautifully designed, and offers enough space for solitude when wanted or room for eight to sit comfortably. It is an easy drive to many of the most beautiful spots in the area and there are easy and spectacular walks not more than two miles down the road.

Crazy Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! It is not only beautiful, but it had everything we needed. There were 10 of us on our first trip to California. We had more than enough room to spread out and had tons of fun sitting in the hot tub, having ping pong tournaments, cooking family dinners and enjoying the view of the ocean. Point Lobos State Park is very near and we spent 2 separate days wandering through and investigating tide pools. I am so glad the house ended up exceeding our expectations, but one of the best things was Keith. A week before our arrival the Soberanes wild fire began very close to Carmel. Keith contacted me to let me know about it and told me where I could look to get more info on the fire. He answered all my questions, but did not try to convince me to stay or to cancel. Even though the house was not in direct danger, he said he would refund all of our money if we had any concerns about the air quality and did not want to stay there. In the end we decided to go and we are all very glad we did. We hope our travels bring us back this way some day and we would absolutely stay in this house again. Thank you to Keith and his family for sharing it!

Incredible home

  • 5 of 5

Family reunion with 13 people and we all were able to sit at the table together for meals overlooking the beautiful Monterey ocean. The house is gorgeous, the landscaping is excellent and the area is amazing. Saw the China cove where mother seals teach their newborn seals to swim. There is 4 bedrooms with at least two beds in each room. A possible issue to consider is that there are some fairly steep stairs to walk up to 2 of the bedrooms and the first floor. I loved the house and the environment and hope we get to enjoy it again soon. Thank you owner.

Relaxing retreat in this beautiful, spacious house.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we drove up the driveway, it felt like a a private vacation spot. The inside of the house is gorgeous with wooden interiors, natural light in every room and fantastic ocean views out the windows. Keith was always prompt and professional in the booking & check-out stages and sent us all the information that was needed to make our check-in smooth. The house had plenty of extra pillows, blankets and basic kitchen supplies to supplement the food and cooking supplies we brought. It was the perfect house for our ladies getaway relaxation weekend! Within a two night stay, we utilized the sauna, hot tub, fireplace, front room for yoga, back yard for bbq'ing and the large kitchen and dining room tables for lots of talking and catching up! It's close proximity to Big Sur & Point Lobos allowed for lots of exploration and hiking. On top of all that, we were able to grab coffee and breakfast in Carmel and explore Carmel-By-The-Sea. It's a very special house and allowed for a very memorable weekend.
