About Ken

We are a family who lived in Carmel for many years and relocated. But we purchased this home so that we could continue to enjoy the beauty of Carmel and Monterey Peninsula.

Why Ken chose Central Coast California

We chose this location as it is close to all the amenities of the area, but is in a small pocket of Carmel that is the last to receive fog during the summer months on the Monterey Peninsula.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. It made us fell right at home and relaxed in this beautiful area. Seeing the deer along the road was a bonus as well. Thank again!

Carmel Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Ken and Barbara are thoughtful hosts. Home is in a nice neighborhood in a beautiful natural setting. We saw turkeys and deer! Home is clean, updated, spacious, comfortable and well maintained with a nice deck with pleasant outlook and landscaping. Comfortable beds too! Convenient location just minutes to Pt Lobos and downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea. Will definitely send friends.

Great vacation house to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed much about spending a couple of days at this house for our recent vacation. It was located at one of the best areas near Carmel, and was very quiet. Everything was convenient and we relaxed a lot.

Lovely house in Carmel

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded our expectations: very well appointed, comfortable rooms, nice neighborhood conveniently located near stores and restaurants,and very spacious. It has an updated kitchen with everything you need to prepare your meals. We enjoyed grilling on the deck and watching the big screen TV. I would gladly stay here again.

Such a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfectly perfect time in this beautiful home. Very comfortable, everything that we needed, and plenty of room. Ken, the owner is fantastic to communicate with, and while he was out of the country when we were there, his daughter called our first night to make sure everything was satisfactory and she was delightful as well.

So much to do in the area that a week wasn't enough - we'll need to come back! :-)

How to make a gourmet chef happy. Very happy.

  • 4 of 5

No skimping on furnishings or cooking equipment here. This kitchen was designed for entertaining. It has more storage than I've ever seen, and is stocked with every imaginable tool and chef's gadget. There's room for three people to cook with room left over (There's a big cooking island). Spacious public rooms blend into one another -- a big dining table at one end of kitchen lets noncooks join the cooks, a media room with big new tv and plenty of seating is adjacent on the other side and is all about comfort. They've thought of everything...including a door between the dining area and the hallway to the bedrooms, a boon to the early-to-bed and late-to-rise set

Everything is fresh, clean, and attractive; no sags, worn spots, or decorating leftovers. Nice dishes, flatware, glasses. And the neighborhood is quiet. You couldn't not enjoy your trip here.

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful, spacious house for our vacation. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to find it was 3 bedrooms plus and office, so we could set up the pack n play for our daughter in her own room. The master bedroom and bath were HUGE. The house was also really well set up with the bedrooms on one end and the kitchen and living room on the other, so people could talk, play, and eat in one area while not disturbing anyone trying to sleep. Ken was very responsive and helpful as well, and the neighborhood was nice and quiet. Overall it was a wonderful experience!
