Cypress Hideaway is the perfect location on Carmel Point, just 2 blocks from the famous, white-sand Carmel Beach, and 3 blocks from Carmel River Beach in a quiet neighborhood. It is a lovely multi-level, redwood home with high open-beam ceilings that is spacious yet retains a cozy feel. It has a wood-burning fireplace, unique with a log built into the hearth area that came straight from Carmel River Beach about 40 years ago. It was designed and built with a love of nature, in a 'U' shape surrounding a large California Oak tree that sits beautifully in the center portion of the property. A lovely, large hedge of Cypress trees offers the utmost feeling of privacy in the yard and house. The house has a nice front sitting patio, beautiful for morning coffee, a deck off the master bedroom, and another patio off the 3rd bedroom/studio. Cypress Hideaway has 3 nicely-sized bedrooms (one king bed, and two with queen beds), and 3 baths, one with a sunken tub above which is a skylight where you can gaze at the stars above. It has a small, but fully functioning kitchen with all new appliances, dishes, utensils...etc. Located within walking distance from the historical Carmel Mission, downtown Carmel with myriads of shops and restaurants to enjoy, and Carmel Mission Ranch dining overlooking Carmel River Beach. Cypress Hideaway is a perfect vacation get away for families with children ages 6 and older, or couples wanting to experience the beauty and charm of Carmel living.

Why Owner chose Carmel Point
Built in 1973 by my parents, we have kept this home in our family and have many fond memories in it. Family and friends gathered at our house over the years and shared great times there and at the nearby beaches. (We even won the grand-prize in the Carmel Beach Great Sand Castle Contest one year -- what fun!) I have fond memories of exploring tide pools at the beach as a young teen coming from the cold of Illinois where we'd moved from. The wood design was my father's (an artist) and the preservation of the california oak tree, and the cypress hedge was of the utmost importance to him when building the house. We have kept our home as a vacation rental so we can enjoy visits ourselves, and so we can have others also enjoy it and have great Carmel memories.
What makes this House unique
The woodsy feel of the house is special, and the many windows make you feel like you are outdoors. But with the tall hedges you also feel the utmost privacy. A wood-burning fire in the living room is so cozy. Of course, the short walk to the beach(es) makes this such a special location.

Carmel Hide Away filled with charm
Hidden away on the prestigious Carmel Point, is a gem of a Carmel charmer. The rustic and spacious home on three levels evokes the charisma the Monterey Peninsula is renown.
The property is well maintained with a very helpful caretaker at your call.
The living room has a beautiful fireplace and the kitchen is great if you are cooking in. The master bedroom has high ceilings and an attached bath. There is a lovely deck ajoining the bedroom. There is a downstairs suite and another bedroom and bath on the master bedroom level.
Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula has more restaurants than you could visit in a year! Noteable, Anton and Michele and Basil. Should you want to cook in, Bruno's has a great meat department and Neilson's supplies the gourmet in your traveling party.
The owner of the property was highly responsive and returned emails promptly.
I will return to this property when visiting the Monterey Peninsula in the future.
Beautiful home and location
This home is stunning. Love the natural light coming in through the skylights all over the home, so many decks and patio space, we wish we had more time to spend there enjoying all the perks!
Check in was very easy and the property manager was very friendly and helpful. We look forward to coming back next year!
Beautiful Beach Tree House
Your home was a lovely surprise. We loved the cozy wood cabin feel, the patios, and the skylights provided a great show for the impromptu rain storm. Location was perfect, walking distance to the beach, and so close to downtown and Monterrey. Thank you for sharing your charming home with us.
Lovely house in a great area of Carmel
My husband's family and I spent five days in this Carmel home and it was fantastic. Nancy is a great host and connected us with a local caretaker who let us into the property and helped field any and all of our questions. The house itself is beautifully designed with plenty of light, an ample living room, great kitchen, and convivial dining room area all in one part of the house by the front door. The three other bedrooms (each with its own respective bathroom) are in another portion of the house and provide comfortable privacy—it was perfect for three adult couples; although there are alot of stairs between levels of the house and might be complicated for very young kids or seniors. There are two separate (beautiful) backyard spaces and a front patio by the entrance. The property is about a five minute walk from a lesser-known Carmel beach and about a three minute drive from downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and Carmel Beach (also within walkable distance); two different shopping centers (with a Parisian Bakery, Fish Market, three different large grocery stores, and coffee shops) are about a 7-10 minute drive. It feels perfectly located and within close proximity of a number of additional hiking trails and attractions. I would highly recommend this place to anyone eager for an easy and beautiful get away.
Stayed at this house last weekend. Cozy place, everything we needed was there. Very quiet, and 2 blocks from Carmel main beach. Great spot with a very cooperative and helpful owner and property manager. I would recommend this place to friends, and would stay there again for sure.
It was a lovely house with a great location. Clean and really well-equipped.
We had an excellent experience. Doug, the caretaker was helpful with our late arrival. The house is well-located for the beach and local stores. We walked and biked to everywhere in Carmel.
