Another wonderful stay at Tuckaway!

  • 5 of 5

As much as I'd love to keep Tuckaway our little secret I know that is not possible! Our second visit was just as wonderful as our first and I know we shall return again and again. Perfection!

Thank you Bill for being such a generous and thoughtful host.

Bill takes in mind all the needs required for this hideaway to make it special. The entire patio is at your disposal, privacy is great although owners live above, and it is close to town (few minutes by car), but nicely removed from the busy area of Carmel downtown. The place is a cozy studio that is divided nicely to provide space between the living/kitchen and sleeping areas. Nice safe neighborhood and my dog loved it too!

Private & comfortable - great outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to find this great guest room for a last minute 2 night getaway. The location was in a quiet residential neighborhood, which we loved. The patio was wonderful, with a view over the treetops to the water. Our standard poodle was with us, so it was great to have a place to play with her on the patio, as well as we enjoyed walking through the lovely neighborhood and through the Del Monte Forest into town. The room was nicely decorated, clean, comfortable and private. Even the weather was AMAZING! We can't think of anything that would have made our stay better!

Peaceful and Private

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Carmel for some much needed R&R. The space is quaint, peaceful, and proved to be the perfect getaway for us. Super grateful for the impeccable service Jim provided, the outdoor area is a great place to read a book, and the place is close enough to everything you'll need in Carmel.

Fantastic, peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Tuckaway is a lovely, well-appointed guest room with an awesome, expansive private patio. Really enjoyed simply reading a book in the sitting room or out on the deck, having breakfast, and had a chance to do laundry about 1/2 way through a 9-day trip. Highly recommend!

Excellent for us

  • 5 of 5

The Tuckaway was perfect for us, a couple with a small dog. Quiet neighborhood location with a very short drive to downtown Carmel's shopping and restaurants. Clean and well kept studio with everything we needed (and more), clearly there's attention to details here. Beautiful patio and easy smooth arrangements made with our host. We would love to stay here again on our next trip to Carmel. Thank you, Bill, for having us at The Tuckaway, it was terrific!
