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 Carmel-by-the-Sea

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!

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights in this home. It is beautiful and has every thing you need. It was very convenient to town and any of the other things you would want to visit in the area. I would highly recommend it. We were 5 women staying, and having a house makes it much more enjoyable and gives us an easy way to connect on our vacation together.

Great location for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

They house was beautiful. Because it was one level it was easy for my elderly mother to get around. We enjoyed the back deck and front porch. The views were so pretty to look at as we enjoyed our morning coffee.

Thank you so much.

Loved this nicely appointed home in the pines very near Carmel. Kitchen wonderfully stocked with all things needed for meals cooking. Great deck with nice view of pines and mountains at a distance. Owners were gracious with information and questions. Look forward to a return visit.

Quiet and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this property very much. It is very centrally located close to Hwy 1 - just a short drive to anywhere you want to go, including the airport - but far enough off the main roads to feel secluded. Access to the garage was a bonus and very much needed in our case.

The owner provided lots of good info about the area and the house itself, so we had no questions or issues, and he checked in with us during our stay as well. Definitely recommend, especially for families or multiple couples. .

Great house, close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We met up with family to spend some time in central California. The house was clean and well appointed. It was conveniently located close to local shopping, restaurants and the downtown Carmel area, as well as other scenic spots. We really enjoyed our stay here. The house had plenty of room for our extended family - 5 adults and 2 children.
