Northeast Carmel Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio (Sleeps 2)

As of 1/1/2017 we will not be accepting reservations.

Totally private. A cozy hideaway for two people in a separate building. No one above, below or next to you. Guests have complete privacy. However, your host is nearby - 'invisible but available'.

Please note that this is a small space but it's well designed and the patio provides more room and a place to sit outside. Close to downtown Carmel (ten minute walk) and west of Highway 1 in a quiet neighborhood where you feel like a local.

Comfy queen bed. Plush linens. Excellent high speed WiFi and cable TV.

Fridge, microwave, coffee/tea kettles, toaster & an initial supply of complimentary goodies (wine, juice, soda, snacks, coffee, candy etc.) More amenities than most hotels.

Bedroom/mini kitchenette & bath. Storage - both hanging and shelving. Room for all your stuff. Ideal for travelers who want a quiet place to relax and sleep after a busy day. You also have access to the adjacent storage space for storage of bikes, luggage, etc.

Private gated/fenced patio with bistro set - surrounded by open space, trees, birds and various other critters. The studio is surrounded by gardens.

Smoking allowed outside on the patio only.

Dedicated parking right in front.

We welcome you personally and provide a quick overview of Carmel and the peninsula.

After that you have total privacy.

Pet Policy: We welcome one dog. There is a pet fee ($15/night) but no cleaning fees or other charges. Call for details.

Just minutes from Monterey and Pacific Grove & 26 miles from Big Sur.

Monterey's famous aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf is about 10 minutes by car.

We are long time Carmel residents who can share a wealth of information with you - much of it that you won't find in the guide books.

Cancellation Policy: At least thirty days full refund.

Treat your dog to a romp on Carmel's famous beach. This town is very dog friendly.

About Sylvia Savage

Long time Carmel residents -more than fifty years between us. We sometimes imagine living somewhere else but Carmel is great to come home to. So we travel...this picture was taken in Todos Santos, Mexico on the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula.

Sylvia Savage purchased this studio in 2009

Why Sylvia Savage chose Carmel

We are lucky to live here full time. Can't beat the weather, immaculate beaches, clean air, minimal traffic, European village lifestyle.

It's very Car-mellow and so safe that many residents don't even lock their doors.

What makes this studio unique

Total privacy. Easy access to everything. Excellent value. We can advise you as to the best spots for dining, hiking, shopping, etc. Feel like a local without breaking your budget.

Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful short weekend stay. Silva was there to great us and loved up our dogs before going into the studio. Her and her husband were very friendly and made you feel at home. The studio was well stocked with everything one might need while away and was very tastefully decorated with fine pieces of art all the way to the most comfortable bed. There was plenty of room for my husband and I and 2 dogs. We were in walking distance to the town where they gave us a map of all the dog friendly restaurants. We loved the leash free beach, all 4 of us had a great time, we will definitely look to stay here next time we come to Carmel:)

Sylvia was a wonderful host(ess) - very warm, friendly and gracious. She called to let me know the studio was available earlier that day and that she would be there from noon on to greet me. We sat down and she gave me maps and all kinds of other helpful information and even called her (and now mine) favorite restaurant to get us a reservation for that evening (no mean feat - very popular and delicious Flying Fish Grill in Carmel ). She showed me the studio, with its own gated private little garden (where I kept my dog when I had to dine out with family); the bed was super comfy, the place was spotless, TV, wi-fi, a well-stocked modern bathroom and a stocked mini-fridge and snack bar, all complimentary. Sylvia's own gardens and grounds were exquisitely beautiful and we were welcome to enjoy them - unfortunately too busy to do so! Sylvia was always available by phone or a knock on the door to answer questions or offer assistance (like when I mistakenly locked myself out one evening like an idiot!) It was wonderful to escape to my own private hideaway when the family became "too much" - a very wonderful little home away from home..thank you for everything Sylvia! Lisa & Tina the Border Collie.

Owner's Response: I so enjoyed you and Tina as guests. She's a sweetie. You inspired me to hide an extra key. Now locking yourself out won't be a problem. (And you're not the only one who has done that.) Solved. Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. Sylvia

Location was perfect, accommodations were very nice and Sylvia the owner, was on point with dining suggestions! Had a great couple of days in Carmel with my daughter. Walks into town and down to the beach.....easy drive into Monterey. I will definitely be back!

Wonderful studio, terrific hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a lovely three night stay in this well appointed studio, a short drive or ten minute walk from Carmel By the Sea. Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, this well crafted property is a worthy contender in our book over a hotel room. It's well stocked, thoughtfully designed and clean. We loved the surrounding gardens and care with which the hosts offered helpful tips and suggestions to make our visit to the area memorable. You'll be pleasantly surprised with this gem. Meeting Sylvia and Tim has sold us on exploring future VRBO rentals. Be sure to spend time on beautiful Carmel Beach, visit Mission Ranch (we went for drinks and enjoyed the bar menu for an easy supper) and on the drive to Big Sur, should you be so inclined, Nepenthe is worth a lunch stop.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

There is something very special about this studio, yes it's compact but it is also extremely well kitted out and you have every comfort possible. The bed is definately super comfy. The host are amazing and go over and beyond what's expected. It's a wonderfully quiet relaxing and restful place. We got great recommendations from Sylvia for dinner and we had some wonderful dinners. The area itself is beautiful. I would definitely recommend this studio.
