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.

Bella Carmel is an absolutely terrific family vacation place

  • 5 of 5

The house lived up to its description and then some. We especially appreciated having it available on Christmas Day as family came from the east coast. We arrived as our Pittsburg family could watch the Steelers have a last minute win. The media room with its large screen was very popular. We enjoyed everything from the morning sunrise to the sunset views from the back yard and it was very close to our family's condo at Carmel Valley Ranch. Our three children and their families were with us as well as my daughter in laws mother who lives at the Manor. All of our activies began at breakfast and then everyone went their own way hiking in Big Sur, shopping in Carmel by the Sea, dining in the Village. The house was charming and the only fault we found was the inadequate lighting in the living room. We all gathered there to relax but found the lighting to be too limited for reading. My husband was especially pleased to have a piano for his afternoon playing time. I think we are all hoping to spend another holiday as a family at Bella Carmel.

Even Better Than Advertised

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled to the Monterey/Carmel/Santa Cruz area over 100 times. We have stayed in the best hotels and have rented many VRBO homes. The Carmel Tuscan Estate was spectacular. My wife, 2 daughters and I were spoiled in the grand estate that was first class in every way. The quality of the home was very high end. The views were perfect. And the deer were plentiful and even butting antlers! We only used 3 of the 6 bedrooms, so a large group could easily be accommodated. I would advise all who truly want the very best to give this home a try. The Management Company was very professional and attentive.
