Central Coast California Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Our quiet, peaceful, and secluded guest house lies less than 1/4 mile above Bernardus Lodge. It was completely remodeled in 2006. It is spacious yet cozy for two people at 600+ square feet. It has beautiful views of Garland Ranch Regional Park and Garzas Canyon.

The guest house is minutes from Leguna Seca (5), Monterey (15-20), Pacific Grove (25), Garland Park (2), Wine Tasting and Carmel-by-the-Sea (10-15). It is approximately 45 minutes to Big Sur.

Enjoy all the Monterey Peninsula has to offer or just relax and rest in the sun, fresh air, and gorgeous views from the deck!

A great value - please read some comments in the guest book below.

About Rogers

Hello! We look forward to accommodating you at our wonderful spot in Carmel Valley. Our son, Rogers helps us manage the guest house so he'll be your primary point of contact when coordinating your stay.

Rogers purchased this bungalow in 1989

Why Rogers chose Central Coast California

Carmel Valley is known for its great climate, rustic feel, and beautiful scenery. We actually reside in the main house which sits lower on our property. There are no direct sight lines between the two houses and often times we don't even meet our guests (although we most certainly enjoy when we do). It has great southern exposure and views onto Garland Park, the eastern part of the valley, and the Santa Lucia Mountain Range.

What makes this bungalow unique

There are a quite a few nice things about the guest house. Please read the guest comments in our online guest book and view the photos as they best describe the benefits and amenities that our guest house has to offer.

We completely remodeled the guest house in 2005/06, and many guests have told us how much they like the 'feel' of the place. We've been on VRBO since late 2007 and have been excited ever since at having guests enjoy the beautiful place we call home.

Peaceful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has a warm open feel from the large bedroom, living room and spacious deck. Walk in tiled bathroom shower is large and inventive with open half wall. Views from the deck are outstanding from dusk til dawn. A few small improvements would enhance the stay. Barbecue grill was out of fuel, shower shampoo and bath gel was empty. The kitchen could use a few serving bowls and sharp paring knives. Overall stay was very pleasant and relaxing.

Great getaway!!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I love this guest house. Its private, quiet, has an amazing view , kitchenette allowed us create some basic meals and its a pretty 20 min drive to Carmel. I would give it 5 stars but it does need some TLC inside . I would definitely go back.

Owner's Response: We try to maintain the guest house at a five star standard. Specific feedback is always appreciated so we can fix, replace, or replenish anything that needs it. We will do everything we can to earn the fifth star for future guests.

We had a fabulous three-day weekend. The little house is perfect -- secluded and quiet with an amazing view of the valley.

Will definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5

The guest house was perfect and exactly what me and my husband were looking for. The guest house was incredibly spacious and we could literally hear the crickets outside, it was that quiet. It was well decorated and clean and provided all the basic amenities. It was close to Carmel but also provided a lot of privacy so we really had the best of both worlds. We felt feeling so relaxed and energized!

Driving into the guest house Saturday night, we saw 4 deer on our way in! And then on Sunday night, as we were enjoying our dinner on the patio looking at the beautiful scenery, we heard soft noises behind us and then saw the deer walk around the guest house in search of food.

The booking process was seamless and had absolutely no complaints! Everything was well organized and provided to us in an efficient and timely manner. We look forward to coming back for another weekend getaway!

Quiet. relaxed, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

This guest house was close enough for us to explore the Carmel and Monterey coastal area and at the same time enjoy a sense of solitude. Comfortable, spacious for 2, with a cute kitchenette which allows not for cooking an elaborate meal, but is fine to heat up leftovers or make a simple breakfast. The bathroom is lovely, with a gorgeous tiled shower (a highlight, I confess!) Even with the dryness of the drought here, the hilly view was pretty and the changing valley skies fun to watch. Would definitely recommend.

Perfect need of TLC

  • 3 of 5

The charming cottage built on the top of owner’s 3-car garage is quiet and private, and has great views. It is a perfect place for a short vacation, well-appointed, with very nicely decorated living room and a modern bathroom also w. view. Unfortunately, everything looks tired and worn-out; cleanliness lets a lot to desire, especially in the bedroom. Wi-Fi and cell phone reception are excellent. The highlight of the cottage is the wrap-around terrace w. gorgeous views of the valley (and of the main house), but the outdoor furniture has reached the end of its life, especially the cushions. Roger gave misleading info re. issues mentioned in previous reviews: none has been fixed by mid-April, the kitchenette is very poorly equipped and it is BYO even for minimal meal prep. It is hard to understand the glowing reviews – the place has tons of potential, its location is splendid, but it is a far cry from 5-star.

Owner's Response: We love our guest house and sharing it with guests. This is clear from our history of hosting hundreds of guests with overwhelmingly positive reviews since we opened its doors in 2007. Unfortunately, as the reviewer pointed out, we had let a few things slip in terms of monitoring the cleaning crew and some of the décor. Since the above review was posted, we have replaced the outdoor furniture (new Adirondack chairs w/ covers and table), welcome mat, comforters and pillow shams. We have re-stocked the kitchenette. We have also taken the sofa upholstery to the dry-cleaners and have scheduled a carpet cleaning for the area rug (both of which will be done on a regular basis going forward). I will be posting photos reflecting these changes within a week. While you can see parts of the main house through multiple oak trees, the orientation of the guest house is predominantly towards the mountains of Carmel Valley. We look forward to accommodating you and getting back on track with our positive review record. Sincerely, The Hawleys
