About Chuck and Diane
Our romance began in 1961 when Diane came to Carmel to be a 4th grade teacher at Carmel River School. She met Chuck who had just left the Navy's Blue Angels and was enrolled in the Naval Postgraduate School. In 1964 we were married and began a life together. Through the years, as a Navy family, we lived many places, but always returned to Carmel to visit our old friends and to bask in the beauty of the area. Of course, we always wished we had bought a place when we first lived here, and never really thought we would ever live in Carmel
Chuck and Diane purchased this Guest House in 2000
Why Chuck and Diane chose Carmel-by-the-Sea
In 2004 we fell in love with Sundance, a rustic and secluded home. We immediately bought it, sold our home in Del Mar, and became Carmelites. We love it here and have never looked back. Our family and friends enjoyed staying in the guest house, and after our son built a magnificent deck around it we christened it 'Moonglow' and decided to offer it as a vacation rental. As you can see from the guestbook, it has been very popular.
What makes this Guest House unique
Moonglow is close to everything in Carmel, the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel Valley and Big Sur, yet secluded and quiet.

Perfect getaway for a couple!
My husband and I chose Moonglow for our honeymoon, because we wanted to stay somewhere private, picturesque, conveniently located, and affordable. Moonglow was absolutely the perfect choice for us! It's secluded enough to feel really woodsy and lovely, but still walking distance to town and the beach. We could store snacks and even prepare simple meals in the kitchenette, which was a great money saver. The bed and couch are comfortable, the Internet is speedy, the bathroom is well equipped -- and of course, the hot tub is a HUGE perk. Best of all, in our opinion: the house comes with free passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which saved us $100 and was an incredible experience. Chuck and Diane were gracious hosts and we really enjoyed meeting them. I hope we can return to Moonglow in the future and get to know them even better! Thank you, Chuck and Diane!
Excellent location just over highway 1 from downtown Carmel. Private and quiet, and the owners are great too!
Peaceful Reatreat close to Town
We enjoyed our stay in this cozy, little apartment in the woods. I loved the sunlight coming through the many windows each morning. The bed is very comfortable. The rental is very close to town and we were also able to visit Carmel Valley and Big Sur. Great trip! Nice relaxing place to stay.
Cozy cottage in the pines
Chuck and Diane are gracious hosts and we enjoyed our brief stay in the light filled attached guest house on their property. Comfortable bed, fireplace and kitchen nook with all the amenities. The neighborhood is quiet, lush and shady 15 min walk to town.
This place felt like home away from home.
Its like a tree house. We stayed here with our 3 year old over Easter, and it was absolutely magical. The aquarium passes were a wonderful bonus and it was so quiet and peaceful. My aunt has lived in the Carmel by the Sea for 25 years and said it was one of the best finds around and plans on having her visiting friends and family stay there in the future since its so close to everything. The moon really does glow here. Enjoy!
