Overview

Carmel House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Beautiful 3 bdrm/2 bath home with beautiful garden that is only one block from the beach and the famous scenic road. Imagine starting your morning with breathtaking walks along the ocean.

People describe our cottage as relaxing and inviting yet equipped with all the modern conveniences. House is well equipped with comfortable beds and linens. Multiple LED flat screen TVs with cable, HBO and apple TV. We also have high speed wireless internet.

Our favorite activities include tea or wine in the garden, walking to the beach for sunset, and relaxing in front of the fire. Very close to Carmel shops and restaurants.

There is parking in the driveway and next to the house.

I would be happy to give recommendations for restaurants, vineyards, walks/hikes, or golf courses.

Ideal cottage with plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

I was in Carmel for my son's wedding, which was at Mission Ranch. This house is in an ideal location. Very quiet and peaceful yet near everything. We could walk to all the beaches and into town easily. The garden and patio was like an extension of the house. The kitchen had everything we needed. Thank you, Sean, for sharing this family home!

Cozy in great location.

  • 5 of 5

Cozy little house, clean and well provisioned with linens, etc. wonderful garden for enjoying morning coffee or evening wine. Great location for walks/runs on Scenic Rd to Ocean Ave and for enjoying Carmel River State Beach which is much less crowded than beach at foot of Ocean Ave. Deposit was refunded almost immediately after checkout!

Loved the charming house and that it had been a much loved family home for several generations

  • 5 of 5

It was quite difficult to find the house as our sat nav didn't recognise the address but once found we loved it and we soon knew our way around the somewhat confusing streets of Carmel. It was lovely to be able to walk to both the river beach and the sea beach ( and in to the town). We only had a few days and would love to return and stay longer. The house and garden were very well equipped and maintained, in fact the gardener turned up twice in our very short stay as he was determined to get the fountain working (we hadn't even realised it should have been working) - that was a little unfortunate as he always chose to come fairly early in the day and on the one day we had hoped to be using the garden for breakfast as it was the one sunny morning we had. That said overall we loved it and would certainly like to come again.

Some suggestions of good local restaurants would have been really helpful. We went to Nepenthe on Big Sur for lunch one day as we had heard about that before we came. We loved Big Sur generally and the Julia Pfeiffer Burns National Park, all the country side and coast south from the house in particular.

Wonderful summer house!

  • 5 of 5

This review is a little late, but I just had to say how wonderful this house is, and how lucky we felt to have spent

2 1/2 months here last summer. Sean was a wonderful host, and anything/everything we needed was provided. The house is a perfect "old" California house...such character! Well stocked and clean.

Also, you couldn't ask for a more perfect location. My husband and I loved walking back and forth to town for dinner. There is nothing like walking back along the beach road when all of Carmel is quiet and dark (and I mean VERY quiet and VERY dark!), and you can only hear the sound of the waves! Beautiful memories!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this house in May and we had a wonderful time. The house is tucked away on a quiet street - very private, and perfectly located. It's about a block from the Carmel River Beach (great for tide pools) and 2 1/2 blocks from the main Carmel Beach. One day, we easily walked along the main beach, up into town and back. It is convenient to many of the places of interest around the bay area. The house has a well-stocked kitchen and everything we needed for our stay. Sean was very easy to work with and attentive to a few questions that came up after our arrival. I hope I get a chance to come back to this home for another visit.

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Carmel By the Sea at this cozy, quaint home from April 22-April 29, 2016. . We came to run the Big Sur Marathon and needed a comfortable place to stay in the area. Knowing the area from our last stay in nearby Monterrey we wanted to be near Scenic Road in Carmel, to run and walk along the coast. This house was a block away! It was in a perfect location to downtown, and the beach. There was not a morning we didn't take advantage of going for a walk or run and enjoying the beautiful scenery! The house was clean, and so well stocked. There were four of us and all were satisfied with their rooms. The gas fireplace in the living room makes this house so cozy! We also sat outside in the patio area with our tea and coffee. The property is filled with rose bushes of all colors. Most of the neighborhood has beautiful landscaping and flowers. We even had a thyme bush in the yard, which a few pieces were a perfect ingredient for our dinner. There are many restaurants in the area, Katie's for breakfast, The Hogs Breath for an informal dinner, The Mission Ranch and we love Rocky Point Restaurant and Nepenthe for scenery and drinks. We had a wonderful stay and this house was a perfect home base.
