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.

Yet another flawless weekend at Bella Carmel

  • 5 of 5

Our men's retreat was a huge success....partly because of our environment. We've been coming to Bella Carmel for four years now and it's been elegant, quiet, and comfortable. No glitches. No problems. Always just right. See you next year.

The clock stops when you come in the door

  • 5 of 5

Stunning home that shuts out the world and shows nothing but nature from every vantage. Well appointed kitchen and outdoor grill easily handled dinner for 12. Each of the 6 bedrooms were unique and sleep came easily with wonderfully soft linens and comforters. Did I say it has great views? And the location was perfect, above the fray yet only 10 minutes away. Thank you Larry for a wonderful holiday!!

Great time despite the weather

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful property. Spacious and well appointed. Secluded spot on the hill with a beautiful view. Despite the rainiest weekend in California history my family enjoyed togetherness in the comfort of our surroundings. Even got to venture out to explore Carmel during breaks in the weather.
