Overview

Central Coast California House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

---BEWARE OF SCAMS, I DO NOT ADVERTISE THE COTTAGE ON CRAIGSLIST---

CHARM, AMBIANCE, EXCEPTIONAL VIEWS 'Maisonette de Provence'

Enjoy beautiful Carmel and all the Monterey area without the high price ticket!

'Maisonette de Provence“ is a separate house with 2 bedrooms -each with a king size bed, on our property overlooking Monterey Bay. Our location will provide you with quick access to all of our charming towns - Carmel, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove, and Monterey as well as the beach areas, all less than a 15 minute drive away.

The views are second to none; enjoy one of the many excellent local wines while taking in the sweeping view of the Monterey bay and city lights from the patio. Our sun-filled landscaped patio and garden area will enhance your visit to the California coast. We are originally from France and our 'Maisonette de Provence' and gardens reflect our origins, the house is decorated in typical Provencial style, we are away from the hustle and bustle, in the quiet and calm of the wooded hills above the coast, yet so close as to be near everything that you will want to visit here. Our hillside is well above the areas which get the costal fog in the summer, and enjoys a very pleasant climate year around, not hot in the summer, not cold in the winter; this is a year-round holiday area. On some days you will see a sea of white below you floating in and out of the valleys, a spectacular sight!

The bright, airy, comfortable living room is complete with a genuine leather sofa and love seat, entertainment center featuring a large 46” flat screen HDTV with Satellite TV, DVD, and VCR. We provide free wireless wi-fi throughout the house.

The French double doors open directly onto a spacious terrace, the groomed lawn and flower garden.

Our Maisonette provides you with the comforts of a stylish hotel and home rolled into one!

The upstairs master bedroom features a Cherry wood California King Size bed, a 32' LCD TV with breathtaking view of the Monterey Bay and sparkling city light at night. An antique French armoire completes the ensemble.

The charming second bedroom has a King Size bed and a 26' LCD TV in a Provincial atmosphere. The French double doors open to a rose garden.

Both bedrooms have an alarm clock with i-pod docking.

Connecting the two bedrooms is a small open terrace with views of the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The bathroom features an oversized tub with a sink and a toilet.

Downstairs you will find the 2 cars garage, kitchen and laundry room.

For the gourmet cook there is a fully equipped kitchen with a gas oven, gas cook top, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, granite counter top and a flat screen television.

The grilling enthusiast will enjoy the gas barbecue.

There is a laundry room with washer, dryer, iron and ironing board. If you prefer the more natural way of drying your clothes you can use the outside clothes line.

Also for your convenience we provide you with extra pillows, blankets, linen, hair dryer, picnic basket, ice chest.

We live on the property and we will greet you personally upon arrival.

The Monterey sports Center is less than a 15 minute drive and passes are available if you wish to stay in shape during an extended visit.

Also, this area is excellent for cycling and hiking; many of our local roads have bicycle and hiking paths.

Every season has something to offer here on the Monterey Peninsula; weather is enjoyable all year long and is most spectacular in the spring and fall months. Enjoy the costal lifestyle as we do...for 3 days, or three months!

Bienvenue.

Clean, comfortable, and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, it was the perfect accommodation for our family. We really enjoyed the property. It's a beautiful place and well kept. We didn't mind the short drive into town and took a day trip to Big Sur one of the days. The owner was really nice and quick to respond. We would absolutely recommend this place and would love to stay there again. My only thing that I can say to improve would be the shower, however by the end of the trip I didn't mind it. It's a bath with a handle that you have to hold yourself. Not a huge deal but just a heads up!

What a lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of five, three adults and two kids, 5 and 1 year old, when we stayed at this lovely cottage. The view is just breathtaking and air on top of the hill is so fresh and crisp that you want to be outside on the terrace all the time. It seemed like the cottage had a microclimate on top of the hill as it was always sunny even when it was foggy down there.

Philippe was prompt in his responses and very hospitable. The cottage has a definite European feel to it and is furnished as if it were meant for their own family. The beds are extremely comfortable. The hand held shower was the only thing that we had to adjust to using, but it is not much of an inconvenience.

We truly enjoyed our stay there for a week and wished we had more time. We were only 15-20 minutes away from most beaches and attractions.

We hope to be back next summer.

Thank you again,

Naila

We had a wonderful time and couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. The house was perfect for us and the owner was very helpful and gracious. It's an absolutely beautiful property; very clean, safe and secure. We'd love to stay there again!
