My wife and I had been renting another vacation residence in Carmel during the month of July for the past several years and this year we wanted to extend our stay through the month of August. The only vacation rental that was available for August and fit our needs for the entire month of August was “La Vita Dolce,” hereinafter referred to as the house. The photos of the house on VRBO reflect an accurate and current view. The house is equipped with every conceivable accessory you would want in a vacation rental. The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood and is a walkable distance to downtown Carmel.
The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet as well as an ensuite master bathroom which has a large walk-in shower, two sinks, and a separate water closet. The master bedroom also has a large TV on the wall. The two other bedrooms have access to a full bathroom with one sink, toilet, and shower/bath combination as well as a half bath. Both of these bathrooms are down the hall from bedrooms two and three. We used the king size bed and the queen bed and they were both very comfortable. The bedroom (3rd. bedroom) with the full-size bed was not used, however, it did have a very nice large closet.
The laundry area has a newer full-size front load washer and dryer conveniently located off the hallway. The family room has a very comfortable couch as well as two oversized leather type chairs to view the nice large TV or just relax by the fireplace. There are two sets of wood french doors off the family room and dining area that lead to a patio that has a gas barbecue for grilling. The kitchen is well equipped for just about any type of cooking event. The appliances include a fully-integrated, Miele Slimline dishwasher, Viking gas stove/oven, GE side by side refrigerator and a Panasonic microwave oven. There is also a nice size pull-out type pantry.
There is a detached garage for your parking convenience, however, it will not accommodate large SUV’s which is what we were driving. You can park in the driveway or also in front of the house. As a bonus, there were passes for two to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. These passes can be used on multiple occasions.
John and Karen, the owners of “La Vita Dolce,” were extremely helpful when a few minor issues came up during our stay. I don’t think there is too much else to add other than we can highly recommend “La Vita Dolce.” We have already booked for a portion of next summer.
Was a get away trip to visit my Friend who was staying here and found this cottage house to be a charming beautiful place to stay at. I can say the pictures do not do justice for this home, just can't capture it a photo! Very spacious and beautifully decorated.
Location was perfect from the beach, to the wonderful town and all the places around! I highly recommend this as a get away to anyone.
I stayed at LaVita Dolce for 6 weeks in late 2013. The home is well equipped and in perfect condition. The owner has paid attention to every detail. I have stayed at many VRBO homes during my travels but I will say this this is by far my favorite. Pack your bags and get ready for your Carmel adventures, you have found the perfect place!
We stayed in John and Karen's property during a home remodel, which took longer than expected to complete. They were very accommodating and responsive to our needs, and we found their house to be very comfortable, nicely appointed, and conveniently located. We highly recommend staying at this property.
