Carmel Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Located on a bluff facing south, the studio has unparalleled views of Fish Ranch, Palo Carona Regional Park and Point Lobos. The studio is poolside (rare in Carmel!), approximately 600 sq. ft. and was just remodeled with a modern, clean look, complete with gorgeous hardwood floors, wall to wall windows and brand new linens and towels. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood within easy walking distance to the historic Carmel Mission Basilica church. Your stay comes with a complimentary welcome basket (wine, coffee, milk), two unlimited Monterey Bay Aquarium passes ($65 value) , and free daily access to Pebble Beach (17 Mile Drive). The studio is well positioned to the center of Carmel (1 mile), Monterey (2 miles) and Big Sur (21 miles). This is a fabulous, sunny and private refuge for a couple while exploring the beautiful Monterey Peninsula and Carmel area, and to use as a home base while attending fantastic local events such as the ATT golf tournament, Bach Festival, and Pebble Beach Food And Wine Event. There is a 3 day minimum rental time period. Sorry, not suitable for children. GOOD NEWS, THERE IS NO CLEANING FEE.

Keywords: This is a stunning, modern studio with 180 degree views spanning from Carmel Valley to the ocean.

Great stay at Room with a View

  • 5 of 5

The second time around, we had a wonderful stay at this Carmel efficiency. Close to town, but far enough away so it is peaceful & quiet. The owner, Mark was again very generous & helpful in making our time in Carmel very enjoyable.

Traveling CA1

  • 5 of 5

This studio is in a great location for exploring the Carmel, Monterey, Pebble Beach area, and for a day trip to Big Sur. Hiking the coast was quite enjoyable at Point Lobos State Park. I agree with other comments about the helpful information that Mark provided in his notebook, and the fact that he was very responsive in communicating, particularly while my wife and I were there. I also concur that the shade over the door is see through and that lighting in the bathroom should be improved. But, the studio is comfortable, clean, and spacious. In addition, the aquarium passes and the 17-mile drive access were wonderful features and a great savings.

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We absolutley loved this rental. My fiance and I alway critique cleanliness and honestly we had nothing bad to say....everything was so clean and refreshing! I especially loved the notebook with explanations to about every question we had, and with recommendations to restaurants and for things to do in the area. The owners really take pride in their place and it defintiley comes across! The only thing we could recommend was the bamboo shade cover for the door is see thriugh at night and didnt feel so private, but that is a quick fix. Everything else was wonderful and close to so many things. We were about 10-15 min. to anything we wanted to do! Thank you for such a great stay and experience. I would definitley recommend this place to anyone and will defintley be staying again, anytiume we are in the area again!

Private and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a great place to stay. It is a very quiet neighborhood close to other areas to visit. The bed was really comfortable, so much that one day I woke up and thought I was at home. Thankfully, I was totally wrong! The studio is equipped with just about everything needed for your stay. We really enjoyed our visit.

The owner was attentive to any questions asked. We would recommend that anyone that is looking for a relaxing place to stay to make this your "go to" for the Carmel area.

..And what a wonderful view it was!!

  • 4 of 5

I put my friends here, because of construction at my home. I'm sharing their thoughts on Marc's wonderful place. Location was superb; close enough to walk to town, but far enough away to miss the hustle & bustle. The view across to the hills was lovely. Nicely appointed with every convenience. They appreciated the starter kit of coffee and other condiments. The only reason they couldn't rate it 5 stars is because they thought the chairs/sofa were not especially comfortable without lots of pillows piled on. The bathroom lighting wasn't placed well. And, the refrigerator wasn't anchored so it "walked" every time they opened it. Eventually it would run into the adjacent cabinetry, and had to be repositioned periodically. The door should swing the other way to minimize that. (They take "5 stars" very seriously!) I loved that I could have my friends so nearby my home in such a wonderful neighborhood. I would definitely recommend Marc's hospitality and his home!
