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 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.
We came to Carmel from Hawaii for a wedding, and before I booked a hotel, I checked VRBO - really glad I did. This place was maybe even nicer than it looked in the pictures. Very clean, quiet, and pretty. Really comfortable bed. The pool was too cool to swim in, but maybe if the weather was hotter we'd have appreciated that. Good, clear instructions on how to get in, and good communication by text message from the owner if and when you wanted it.
There's a great info binder they've put together to guide you to all the great eateries and hiking, etc. activities this area has to offer. Two extra-nice touches - they have 2 admission passes to Monterey Aquarium that will save you $ plus, they'll put on "on the list" to use 17-Mile Drive if you request. Makes you feel like a celebrity. (I was Clint Eastwood, in my mind).
There are some condiments in the little "kitchen" area (hot-plate, sink, microwave, fridge) but here's a suggestion: bring in some coffee if you like to drink it. Maybe some paper towels too.
Pretty good TV (but who's going to watch TV in Carmel?) and a nice assortment of area-specific magazines and books.
The price was very reasonable.
Would I stay here again? IN A HEARTBEAT! Thanks, Mark, and VRBO.
Bed was comfortable! Everything was clean and perfect looked exactly liked the pictures. Will definitely book there again on our next visit!
Great studio with amazing views! We enjoyed our stay in this well kept studio that is very inviting. Wonderful property and conveniently located to Carmel, Monterey, and some of the greatest golf in the world. The guest passes for the aquarium are a great bonus and basically pay for one night of lodging. Highly recommend!!

Mark was very communicative and helpful throughout the rental process. We loved the apartment, very well-equipped. Pool outside the apartment. Very accessible from highway 1.
The town is gorgeous with lots of outdoor adventures to be had.
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.
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.
