Awesome !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our only regret is that we were not at Tuckway longer!! Sadly the first part of our trip to Napa was cancelled . A phone call to Bill and he was able to accommodate us for the "Napa Days" ...What a wonderful experience...the cottage was so charming and cozy!! Everything you would need was in

this studio "cottage ". We enjoyed breakfast every morning with a view of the ocean in the outdoor area. I must say the grounds and outdoor area

were just beautiful..a great place to relax and have a glass of wine !!

We will be back Tuckaway !!!

A little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

The 'Tuckaway' is literally tucked away, no road noise, lovely quiet location, a view of the ocean and a beautifully tended outside space. Inside the space has been well thought out with every inch well utilized. Bill obviously knows and loves this area very well and helped us with recommendations for places to eat etc. We had a great stay here and will hopefully be able to return in the future.

A beautiful property and a only a few minute drive to downtown Carmel

  • 5 of 5

Clean, quaint. Nicely decorated inside and gorgeous outdoor space. Has everything a couple needs for a short or extended stay. The bed was very comfortable and there was always a breeze because of location. Slept like a baby. Washer & dryer is definitely a plus. Hopefully I come back to Carmel soon & if I do, I'd stay at The Tuckaway. Thanks Bill!

Beautiful, comfortable, private

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful long weekend at The Tuckaway. I thought the property was a unit at a condo, but it is actually a first floor apartment at a house. The patio is lovely and large; trees and natural barriers make entire site very private but you are also quite close to stores and a vigorous walk to downtown Carmel and the beach (driving is better for most people). If someone is staying upstairs it is a bit less private but the patio is still all yours! The Tuckaway has a small but very well appointed kitchen. There was no utensil or pan that I needed that I could not find. Refrigerator is super small but kept our yogurt just fine for a few days. My only suggestions to Bill are to put a couple of yoga mats in the closet (because the patio is perfect for yoga) and put some Tobasco in the cabinet (because everything is better with Tobasco)! Obviously if those are my only suggestions it is a great space to spend a few days. If you go to Carmel, make sure you spend time at Point Lobos for hiking, some trails are also handicap/stroller accessible.

Tremendous Tuckaway

  • 5 of 5

Throughly enjoyed our stay at Tuckaway. Perfect inside and out! Every thoughtful necessity and attention to detail made for a very comfortable holiday. Cozy and warm inside with an amazing spacious private patio to relax and take in the beautiful ocean views and property. Pure tranquility.

Bill is a very gracious and knowledgable host and is kind enough to include your pets as well.

Tuckaway is truly Carmel's hidden gem and we will never stay anywhere else again! Thanks so much Bill for sharing your little piece of paradise!
