About Karen Hoffman
We love the Central Coast, a special place we call Paradise. In 2003 we bought a hilltop property in upper Carmel Valley and now enjoy magnificent mountain views and serenity. We are always inspired by the natural surroundings of the beautiful Santa Lucia Mountains. We enjoy entertaining with our friends, family and grandchildren. From every visitor's perspective, our little corner of the world beckons vacationers to return again and again.
Karen Hoffman purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2003
Why Karen Hoffman chose Carmel Valley
We fell in love with Cachagua (Upper Carmel Valley), which reminds us of Tuscany. We love the quiet solitude and 360 degree mountain views from our hilltop vineyard. For city people who want sun and country, this is the place!
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Mountain views forever, quiet, private and peaceful. A wonderful retreat!
Pool / Spa

This property is absolutely beautiful. My girlfriends and I stayed while we were there for Big Sur Marathon Weekend. We enjoyed walking around and took tons of pictures. I believe my favorite thing is all the windows! Just so gorgeous. I feel fortunate to have had this experience. Thank you!
Beautiful vineyard retreat
This home was a perfect mountain top estate for our family that met here from three parts of the country for Easter. The house is beautifully decorated inside, and the mountain and vineyard views are spectacular. We enjoyed the pool and the hot tub, and just sharing time together.
The kitchen is amazingly well stocked with spices and a large array of cooking supplies. The beds are comfy and the linens are soft. The large family room is filled with leather chairs and couches that make you want to just cuddle in by the fireplace.
The views are amazing...... each direction offers a different side of paradise. We arrived in multiple cars and once here, no one had a desire to leave during our three day visit.
We want to meet here again with the rest of our family soon.
Gorgeous views, lovely home!
We had a great time at Karen's Tuscan Villa! The scenery was gorgeous and the property was very clean and well-maintained. An eye for little details (courtesy logs for the fireplace, well-stocked kitchen, etc.) and prompt responses from Karen made it a really relaxing experience for our family. The kids spent hours exploring the vineyard and garden. We were so sad to leave!
Carmel Valley Stopover
Our family of four flew into San Francisco to start our journey down the Pacific Coast Highway. Our first stop was in Carmel Valley at this wonderful property. As with most vacations, it takes a couple of days to start unwinding. This was certainly true for our family! And we picked the perfect spot. Karen met us at the property and she immediately felt like a friend. She answered all of our questions and showed us around her beautiful property and then left us to our vacation. She was always quick to answer any texts we sent her with questions we had. The property is very nicely furnished and the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals at the house, which we often did. The pool area is very comfortable and the views are breathtaking. The kids enjoyed playing bocce ball, sitting in the hot tub and swimming in the pool. We all enjoyed spending quality time together and felt it was the perfect first stop on our journey! Thank you, Karen.
It was a pleasure having the Keegan’s at the Tuscan Retreat. Respectful, clean and good communicators. They are welcome back. Thank you for your business.
Beautiful setting with outstanding views and impeccable landscaping
Our host was terrific - very responsive and easy to communicate with. The setting was extraordinary and the house just lovely. The location was remote, so just need to plan ahead on the groceries however once we were at the house, we had no desire to leave as the setting was stunning. A great place to relax away from the noise of the city. We loved our stay and would recommend to others and would stay again. Thank you for having us!
The property was stunning. Every amenity was provided for our entertainment and relaxation.
