Carmel House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bed / 2 Bath, Sleeping & Dining for 8. Beaches 5mins & 8mins walk

Perfect peaceful family getaway or reunion location. Sit and enjoy the gardens while listening to the waves crash on the nearby Carmel Beach. Our home is a 1750 sqft 3bed / 2bath beach-home with soaring vaulted ceilings and wall to wall LIGHT! It's tastefully appointed to help you immerse yourself in a California beach experience.

There's lots of living, cooking and 'kids play' space inside and outside the home. There's comfortable dining and sitting space for 8 in the living room, the dining room and on the back patio. We have 4 flat screen TVs, all equipped with DirecTV and Netflix. There is a 3D TV with 9 viewing glasses, a3D DVD player and a VCR and a small video library including a few 3D movies! , so there's plenty of options.

Broadband Wifi reaches all areas of the house. The sound system is a professional 6-speaker discrete in-ceiling system. Use our CD's or bring your own iPod music.

If it's a good book, you prefer, we have a small library tastefully hidden away next to the living room fireplace. The gas fireplace is controlled electronically with a remote for convenience and safety.

When it comes to relaxing after your tranquil Carmel day, you can further indulge yourself in our memory foam mattresses in every bedroom.

In the morning, take your time to enjoy a fresh coffee drawing in the fresh scented morning air in our extensive flower gardens to the front and back of the house. We have many roses, magnolia, lemon, orange, mandarin, Japanese maple, Mexican sage, agapanthus and many more. In short, the typical Carmel paradise. Don't be surprised to be sharing it with hummingbirds, squirrels and blue jays.

The young kids will love the double bunk bed room, with their own special secret bonus room filled with goodies!

It's an ideal location for families with easy access to both Carmel beaches (5 blocks away). The Mission Ranch Hotel and Restaurant (owned by Clint Eastwood) is a fantastic restaurant to have 200 yards from the front door. It has a Piano Bar as well as outdoor seating to watch the sunsets and the sheep !The Sunday Brunch is highly recommended ! They operate a first come first served system. So you have to arrive and join their wait list. The electronic buzzer they give you to call you for your table works at our home. So, wander down, make your booking, pick up the tag, and have a glass of wine at home while waiting. This gives some bonus time for those who have settled into the Carmel pace and need a little longer to get ready ;-)

Less than a mile away is the shopping and restaurants of 'Carmel by the Sea'. It's also a pleasant 20mins stroll down Scenic Drive overlooking the beach. Nearby is Point Lobos State Reserve. It's beaches are so beautiful several movie beach scenes have been filmed there.

The famous Carmel Mission, and Mission Trail Park are also about half a mile walk. Beautiful beaches and coastal paths extend for 3 miles past Carmel River Valley Beach towards Point Lobos.

About The Owner

We live in the Bay Area and have fallen, completely and utterly in love with Carmel. We love to visit our home there as often as possible. Come and see why !!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Carmel

In a word, location ! Our home is so close to the 2 beautiful carmel beaches. Imagine having to decide which one to walk to !!

For dinner the choice is even more difficult. A gentle 200 yards to the ex-mayor's mission ranch hotel & restaurant, or a short trip to ocean avenue for carmel's very best restaurants. Our favorite there is Dametra, but Mission Ranch is so relaxing with its Piano Bar and outside seating watching the sunset and the sheep !

What makes this house unique

Our home can sleep 8 comfortably. It's 1750 sq ft. You can make dining arrangements for 8 indoors or outdoors, in the back yard ! The living room also seats 8 for movie watching. All bedrooms have slumber-guarantee memory foam mattresses!

We have 4 flat screen TV's throughout the home with DirecTV, Netflix, 3D movies and DVD's.

'Carmel Tranquility' 2 Beaches a short walk from this Rose Garden home
average rating of 5.0 based on 18 reviews

Lovely home in a terrific location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 2 grown sons stayed here and it was wonderful. The house is bright and airy with spacious rooms and attractive furniture. It was immaculately clean and well-kept with a nice kitchen, lovely patio, and a big dining table. All amenities were provided (e.g., plenty of towels, extra pillows and blankets, hair dryer, fully stocked kitchen). The neighborhood is quiet, pretty and very well-located just a few minutes' walk from the Carmel River Beach and the beautiful walking path overlooking the Carmel coastline. We'd definitely recommend this property.

A lovely, compact and bright and airy home in a quiet neighborhood which is 3 blocks from Carmel River Beach and 2 blocks to Mission Ranch. The property manager and owner were thorough, friendly and very responsive. The home has a lovely private front yard and a quaint backyard. It is only 3 miles from Pt Lobos, a must see state park in the area. Although we were 5 grown women, there is an adorable converted garage playroom for those guests who might have small children.

First Class All The Way!

  • 5 of 5

This home is classy, tranquil and super super clean. From the minute we arrived and were greeted by Rick I knew this would be a perfect stay. The gardens are wonderful and you feel like you have been transported away from you every day life. The home has everything you need! Look no further, stay here!

Bright and Cheery Beach Themed Garden Home

  • 5 of 5

We came to Carmel for the weekend with our family and close friends. This was my first experience in a Vacation Rental Home. My first career was in hospitality and I travel often from hotel to hotel in my current career as an IT Consultant. We were very impressed with the spaciousness of this home and how well it was put together to meet the needs of guests. It is on a quiet residential street within walking distance from the beach. The owner, June, is very responsive and the property manager, Rick, was very informative on his walkthrough. We all loved the openess of the space in this home and the amount of light that comes into the home. The kitchen was nice and spacious. We loved the surrounding gardens as well. I wish more of the flowers were in bloom. We were just a little to early to see eveything in bloom for Spring. We were able to utilze the kitchen, the patio with the outside grill and have a wonderful sitdown meal at the indoor dining table with our family and friends Saturday night. The beds were comfy and cozy. The house was very well stocked with linens, towels and some sundry items. There was a nice DVD selection. We are all adults but enjoyed watching Rio on the 3D TV with 3D eyeglasses included. If you do have small children the garage has been converted into a separate playroom fully stocked with toys. It was a nice and easy walk to the Mission and the Carmel River State Beach. We chose to drive down to Ocean Avenue for shopping and restaurants. Which was a very short drive. We all loved this home and had a wonderful weekend together. We would defintiely book this property again.

Amazing house and great location! Highly recommend this gem.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of New Year's Eve in Carmel at this charming home. Two couples and a 5 year old - it was the perfect set up for us! They even have a children's playroom which is adorable and perfect for kids of any age.

The beach decor was crisp, clean and fresh - perfect for Carmel. It was very comfortable and had a great layout for hanging out with our family. Nice big open living room, kitchen and dining area. There are lots of windows which made the home bright and gorgeous. The backyard is great - fun for grilling and hanging out.

June kept in touch with us before, during and after our stay. She is so lovely and ensured our stay was perfect. Rick is wonderful. He met us at the home when we checked in, and he went above and beyond the entire week to ensure our stay was comfortable.

The home is walking distance to the beach. It is a short 5 minute walk to Clint Eastwood's restaurant, The Mission Ranch; they have a beautiful patio that we enjoyed for sunset each night. It is an easy (and pretty!) 15 minute walk into town.

My husband loves to scuba dive, and it is a short 10 minute drive to Point Lobos which has amazing diving (and hiking!). The views at Point Lobos are breath taking.

This home is perfect for couples and small kids or just couples on a romantic getaway. It exceeded our expectations! We will rent if for our next trip to Carmel and recommend it to all of our friends.

Thank you June and Rick for making our stay perfect!

5 Star beautiful property and very comfortable. The decor was so fun and we felt so comfortable. We enjoyed the location so much. The beach was only 5 minutes away and it was a beautiful walk each morning. Town was so much fun and great food and was a 20 minute walk. Clint Eastwood's restaurant, The Mission is 5 minutes away and the patio was beautiful.

We enjoyed happy hour at the house on the back patio. The house exceeded our expectations.

Thank you June for a lovely weekend! We appreciated Rick greeting us open arrival. Thanks to both of you for making this an enjoyable experience.

Car: recommended

Point Lobos State Park is about 3 miles away and its possible to walk there from the house if you walk roadside for about 400 yards.

The town of Carmel has many world class restaurants, art galleries and boutiques. We and our property manager will be happy to give you our recommendations.

Further afield are the world famous golf courses and Monterrey bay aquarium, Cannery row and whale watching. Our property manager can secure discounted tickets for Monterrey bay aquarium.

Golf and nature walks are plentiful and you are just north of the world famous Big Sur Highway 1 ! It's one of those 'must do's', to drive this road to Santa Barbara or Hearst castle with the top down!
