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.
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
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 !
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.
We spent three nights, and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. The house is in a quiet neighborhood, a short walk to two beaches, and a five minute drive to all the shops and restaurants (easy parking). The property manager met us at check-in, explained everything and gave us his number if there was a problem (there were none). The house is clean, bright, well-stocked and has plenty of living space. There are three bedrooms, two with king size beds and the third with two bunk beds that can accommodate four, plus a bonus play room for kids. Our granddaughters were in heaven! There are plenty of TVs with DVD players, great Internet service, lots of towels, dishes, etc. We had our coffee in the backyard every morning while we watched the hummingbirds, then took a walk to the beach. It was a perfect getaway, and hopefully, we can go again someday.
My family and I were in Carmel for a wedding and found this home was the perfect accommodation for us. The location is just a few blocks from the beach and a short drive to the shops and restaurants. There are two bedrooms with king size tempurpedic beds that were so comfortable. The third bedroom has two sets of bunk beds and a room off of it that is a bonus for families with young children. The home was clean and had a light airy beach feel. The property manager Rick was always helpful and the owner was very nice. The front and back yard are beautiful gardens that really added to my overall enjoyment of the place. Also we walked just down the street to the Mission Ranch hotel and piano bar/restaurant. It had a great patio with a fantastic view of the ocean. I would love to have stayed longer and hope to make it back someday soon.
The house was very clean and well kept. The property manager met us at check-in and explained everything about the house and town of Carmel. The house is well stocked with dishes, silverware, coffee pot, washer/dryer, towels, wireless internet, etc.
We were in Carmel for a wedding at Mission Ranch. The house is located within a 2 minute walk to Mission Ranch, and about a 5 minute walk to the beach. The walk to the beach is awesome. The house is a short distance from downtown Carmel, which we usually drove our car.
The house is very open, and great for entertaining. Since we were there for a wedding, we had some family members over one afternoon to relax. There is a huge dining table that comfortably fits 8, along with several couches and seating. There is a huge countertop space where we put food and drinks out for everyone.
Great location for what we were in Carmel for, but also a great location for the beach and beautiful scenery of Carmel. Thank you for letting us stay!
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.
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!
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!
