Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Lou and Kristin,

Whew! Now that we aren’t so consumed with planning and guests etc. can take a moment to thank you properly for your hospitality. Your home was just perfect for our wedding – from accommodations for us and our helper elves (friends) , to the natural and architectural environment for the wedding and reception. Your home provided the very special location while still being comfortable for everyone. The day, the place, the whole package was far more than we could have ever asked for! We’ve actually received many votes from our guests for “The Best Wedding Ever”. We’re basking in the afterglow. A lifetime of memories to enjoy.

And now, since you asked for pictures…I’m sending you a link to a gallery our photographer friends made. You may want to scroll across the bottom to get the pictures that interest you most. If there are pictures you are interested in using for Red Wolf rental promotion materials, let us know and we’ll get the files to you.

Here’s the gallery:

Kindest Regards,

Sarah and Grailing

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for my daughters wedding in Carmel, house was great for 11 people, however it really only sleeps 8 comfortably as 4 people are on sofa beds.

Also it was quite a longer drive than expected to Carmel as the 2 mile drive upto the house from the main road is quite tricky and was very difficult to get an Uber from there.

All in all the views and the house itself was beautiful, we cooked a lot and had plenty of space for everyone to eat and enjoy it all.

I loved it!

The House was beautiful and located very conveniently to everything we wanted to do; downtown Carmel, Big Sur and Pebble Beach. Pamela was so wonderful and took great care of us. I will definitely be booking this house again.

Carmel Ocean View Home

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our four days in this beautiful home with a fantastic ocean view. We appreciated the windy mountainside road up to the home for it afforded us privacy for the grandkids to play on the two decks. Also, the bedrooms were all well placed for us, our children and grandkids and each bedroom had its own bath. We were a close ride to the Monterey Aquarium and Big Sur.

The only negative was that the dinner plates did not fit into the dishwasher and needed to be hand washed.

We would highly recommend your staying at this high end property.

Gorgeous Property, Amazing Views

  • 4 of 5

Totally loved staying in this wonderful house overlooking Carmel and the ocean. It is beautifully decorated, and very comfortable for our group of 8 adults. We enjoyed the serenity of the fountain courtyard, the lovely bathrooms and the patio overlooking the ocean. We were there during a big storm and the house manager Pamela went out of her way to fix some minor water issues. She even dropped off a cake and wine for the inconvenience! We gave it four stars however, because of two things. One, the Fischer Pakel dishwasher drawers were very temperamental, hard to get to work and don’t fit the plates so we ended up hand washing most of the dishes which was a big inconvenience. Also we were disappointed that for the size of the house, there were no seating areas for more than five people so we had to move the dining room chairs or sit on the floor. Otherwise, a very nice property and we highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to share your experience with us. I appreciate your kind words regarding our home. I also appreciate any improvements that can be made to enhance our guest experience. That said we have already increased sitting by additional 6 people. We also have decided to replace the Fisher Pakel dishwashers even though they’re only six months old. Thank you again for sharing your comments. I hope our paths cross again in the future. Kind regard, Lou & Kristin.

Spectacular Views

What a great spot to spend Thanksgiving! So close to Carmel yet away from the crowd. It was so peaceful and relaxing. A truly wonderful getaway! We really didn't want to leave the porch and the beautiful views.

Enjoy the unique microclimate is 10 – 15 degrees warmer than Carmel and high above the fog. Sunrises and Sunsets are 360 degrees and Carmel Village lights up the night below as the fog treads it’s way through the Valley. Thousands of acres of California State Parks open space surround this property. (note green park land on Google Map) Large open space allows for little ambient light creating an abundance of stars and planet viewing.

Other Activities: kayaking, wildlife viewing, rock climbing, health/beauty spa, shopping, boating
