Wonderful Carmel House

  • 5 of 5

This charming home was the perfect base for our extended family members who had come for my son's wedding in Camel Valley, a short drive away. With the guest house, we were able to accommodate a large group, but it never felt crowded. The home is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Everyone was very impressed and very happy with the accommodations. I recommend it highly to anyone who needs space for 8 or more guests. (As we were busy with wedding activities, we didn't take advantage of the full range of books and games available, nor did we do much cooking in the very well equipped kitchen.)

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 young children as a break in our tour of the West Coast. We visited so many incredible places and saw some unforgettable sights....but we all agreed that our favourite part of the trip was relaxing in this beautiful house. We were made to feel really welcome and It immediately felt like home to us.

It is a stone's throw to a stunning, quiet beach, and within easy walking distance of Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch Restaurant. For day trips its a great central location with so many places to visit within a half hours drive. We still miss this place - so much so we are hoping to visit again in the near future. It is well worth the long trek from Scotland!

We would recommend this place to anyone - i'm just sorry I don't have the words to do it justice!

Best Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with our extended family. It was very special to have all the old books, toys, and complete kitchen and dishes. We cooked some great meals and just had lots of quiet time reading and making puzzles. It was not like a rental, it felt like our family home (we wish). We may be back to do this again.

Wonderful Craftsman style

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful and comfortable place on beautiful Carmel point. A real plus is that it is one house off Scenic so the house is quiet and hasn't got the traffic going by that the houses right on Scenic have to put up with.

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 nested here in superb comfort for 5 nights during the Concours weekend. We were all adults, and since not all couples, found this large home very suitable and perfect for our needs with the many choices of bedrooms available. Cooked in every night, so great to find and abundance of extra seasonings already here. The space and light in this home are just wonderful, makes you feel good, the moment you walk in! The pool had the right temps for relaxing swim, salt water, great feel on the skin, lost count on all the quail families foraging and running thru. Some of us took beach chairs down the short walk to enjoy a book while watching the amazingly beautiful water and horizon - we always took long walks after dinner - never had we seen campfires on the main beach in all these years, what a sight! This home is a keeper! We all appreciated the love and care it has received by the owners, thank you, we shall return!
