Dreamy Thanksgiving Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented three homes last weekend for my daughter's wedding weekend with Bella Carmel being the cherry on top. Everyone wanted to stay here even with a waterfront property at Pebble Beach. It was lovelier than the photos, perfect for me to get around with a broken ankle on the first floor and the deer visiting daily was a special treat (the buck would come to the dining room door each time we ate looking for a snack). The kitchen was great fun to cook in and we have 4 in there at the same time without being crowded. We cannot wait to come back again for another family holiday.

Close to everything but a mountaintop retreat at same time

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house for a family reunion. It was really large and comfortable with a gorgeous view. We had just spent the first half of our trip in Sonoma in a very different type of VRBO home and this made for a wonderfully different vacation. It had many wild turkeys and deer on the property and our family loved watching them. It was peaceful and quiet. It was a great place to cook dinner and enjoy as a family. Every bedroom had its own bathroom which was really nice. We really enjoyed staying here.

Beautiful facility in a spectacular setting perfect for our annual get together.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Carmel. It was reminiscent of a place we stayed in Tuscany several years ago. The setting, scenery and wildlife were spectacular. The accommodations were second to none as each of the five couples had their own bedroom and bath with a nice kitchen, dining area and gathering spot. The big TV also worked out well for watching the World Series. We were very happy with our decision to stay here.

Stunning getaway in Carmel

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, comfortable home. Stayed here for a weekend girls trip. Excellent kitchen and dining areas, and two options for hanging out together as a living space. Would definitely return -- especially for a family reunion. Would be great privacy for every family and kids could run outside around the property. A winner! Thanks Larry!!

Perfect Location/Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 couples and enjoyed every space in the house. The theater room was perfect for watching football. The views are perfect for coffee and watching the sunset. Kitchen is very well stocked. We had a private chef come one night and loved serving all 12 in the dining room. All bedrooms had their own bathroom which is hard to find. Surround sound throughout was a bonus. Short walk down the hill to breakfast, 10 minute ride into downtown Carmel (uber was great). Larry was very responsive to any questions we had. Wild Turkeys and deer fun to watch! Highly recommended!

Amazing Carmel Estate

  • 5 of 5

We held our annual "boys trip" for golf in Monterey with 12 guys. The house was perfect. We all could eat in one room, plenty of space and the views in the back yard were amazing.
