About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

This beautiful house with its two sunny interior courtyards and huge fireplace offers you the opportunity to enjoy an ideal balance of forest peacefulness and fun at the beach. It's hidden among the trees on the edge of Hatton Canyon. It is just 1 1/2 miles across Route #1 to Carmel Beach and the Pacific Ocean. The house is set in a very quiet, wooded location by day, and beautiful starlit nights.

The unique design of the house brings natural brightness and beauty into all of the living areas. The terrace overlooking the wooded canyon at the back of the house and the beautifully walled garden and patio at the front are visible through tall glass windows throughout the house. The twelve-foot glass windows come with full-length curtains to close at night.

You won't find a more relaxing vacation property.

It's a fully carpeted, three bedroom, two bathroom, one-story home, fenced to guarantee privacy, with a carport for two vehicles and a long driveway.

The house comes with a complete kitchen, dining area, with settings for 10. There is a large flat panel TV with DVD and expanded cable, including high speed wireless internet connection.

Beautiful Home in Carmel

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home for five nights while attending a wedding in Carmel. My husband and I were joined by our grown sons and their partners, so six adults in all. The home is spacious and truly lovely with glass walls all around allowing light in and to see the beauty of nature. The kitchen is well stocked for any cooking adventure and there are helpful notes all around to aid in operating any feature of the house. We could not have had a better time with this as home base for visiting the area including the magnificent Point Lobos Reserve, 17 Mile Drive, the Big Sur Coastline and of course the charming shops and restaurants in Carmel.

Comfortable retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 6 enjoyed a very comfortable stay. We loved the airy feel with floor to ceiling windows looking over patios on both sides of the living room.

We made good use of the patio overlooking the canyon, as well as the living room with its beautiful fireplace in the evening.

The location was very quiet, yet only minutes from downtown Carmel.

Ted's communication was very prompt and courteous.

We would definitely consider renting this house again when visiting the area in the future.

Tranquil Retreat Yet Convenient to Town

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Carmel Woods house for a long wedding weekend in August. We found the sprawling layout of the house perfect for time together yet not on top of each other. The house is beautifully appointed and well equipped for every sleeping, cooking, dining, relaxing, and primping need. It is a lovely secluded location surrounded by the peace of nature. We felt privileged to be there! Thanks for the many kindnesses extended by Mr. Raabe.

Nice escape from the summer heat

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year coming to Carmel & the second home we have rented through VRBO while there.

We loved that this home was single story and very spacious. The balconies felt as though we were in a treehouse with woodpeckers, deer and other wildlife to enjoy. The fireplace was a nice touch with the cool evenings. We were happy to have nearby stores available such as Safeway and the barnyard shopping plaza that provided great restaurants and second hand shops.

We would not hesitate to rent again and communication with Ted the owner was top notch!
