Perfect for Family Reunions or Celebrations

  • 5 of 5

The property is a perfect location for Monterey and Carmel. The weather is the best on the Monterey Peninsula and you are a short distance to all of the attractions that make the area so special. We had a family celebration with 10 adults and a 5 year old and 7 year old. The layout on the ground floor is perfect for the views and the play area outside the living, kitchen area. The bedrooms are all private and en suite with lovely views . The media room was great for viewing and for games for the kids. And all the technology worked. The owner, Larry, was absolutely wonderful and offered suggestions and help every day. The property is well maintained. I would suggest they get a newer outdoor grill.

Overall, I would recommend this property to anyone.

Bella Carmel is a beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

Bella Carmel is a beautiful Tuscan style Villa nestled in a 40 acre wooded forest on a mountain overlooking Carmel Valley. The home has six bedrooms each with private bathrooms and multiple other dens and living areas – including a lovely patio. The home has all the luxury amenities that you would hope to find in a beautiful area of Carmel Valley. We never felt crowded and enjoyed our stay immensely. I would definitely recommend this property and hope to return to enjoy this beautiful home again in the future.

What a great experience. The house was perfect for our high end men's retreat. Loved the media room. It worked perfectly for our meetings. All the guys agreed that we should return again. Tanya took great care that everything was just right. No glitches. Just as advertised. A beautiful venue and a great weekend. We'll be back. George Collins, Director, Compulsion Solutions

Beautiful! Truly an Italian Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to celebrate our 50th Anniversary with our family of 12 including 4 teenagers. The property manager was awesome giving us details on running the house as well as great places to eat, nearby stores, and a connection to a private chef. We spent a lot deal of time outside enjoying the view and cooked out on the grill one night. We shopped in Carmel, drove to Big Sur, and ate at Post Ranch as well All the recommended restaurants were convenient and delicious. We all concluded that it was an "Over the Top Trip" and I have already recommended the house to many of our friends! We concluded our trip by making a list of 50 Things we loved about Carmel and Bella Carmel was at the top of the list.

Memorable Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was very memorable from start to finish. My group had such a wonderful time! The house was big enough to accommodate everyone comfortably. The kitchen and adjacent sitting area was spacious enough for all of us to gather and share delicious meals and great conversations, but it was also nice to be able to retreat into our own spaces to recharge. The view of the Carmel Valley from the backyard was stunning! Thank you for an amazing time with our friends we won't soon forget.
