About The Owner

We live in Oakland where I used to sell real estate. I grew up on the Monterey Pennsula and have family there.We have 6 horses and bring them to Carmel Valley when we come. We take advantage of the riding in Garland Park and surrounding areas.

The Owner purchased this house in 1960

Why The Owner chose Central Coast California

This is one of the first homes built in Carmel Valley. It has been in my family since the 1950's. My husband and I purchased it from my brothers and sisters in 1994, We totally remodeled it in 2000 with the idea we would retire there. We lived there for about 1 year and decided we were not ready for retirement and decided to rent it for vacationers.It is remodeled above and beyond a vacation home with attention to detail and the feeling of charm and warmth.

What makes this house unique

We love being able to walk to everything in the Village-coffee at the Grey Goose(they have yummy baked goods baked every morning), dinners at one of the Village restaurants, concerts in the park or window shopping at one of the antique stores. We also enjoy the firepit in the evenings with smores with our nieces and nephews. The Valley has the best weather-almost always sunny yet close enough to Carmel and Monterey for all the events.

Comfortable and quiet in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the lovely house for a small family reunion/birthday celebration. It is spacious, quiet and comfortable. We are all cooks who appreciated having a well-equipped and functional kitchen. The outdoor spaces are also attractive, pleasant, and very useable.

Carmel Valley is a much quieter, low-key option than the Monterey Peninsula. It’s also really pretty! There are restaurants, wine tasting rooms, a swimming pool and park, plus grocery stores, all within walking distance of the house, which is also conveniently located near Laguna Seca Raceway. We will definitely return.

Lovely home and setting

  • 5 of 5

What a great location, close to tasting rooms and easy drive to Carmel (where we saw dolphins and whales from the beach). And the home is so warm and spacious. Lovely time.

Stunning & Gorgeous home! This property was pristine, roomy, comfortable, accommodating and peaceful. The backyard was just lovely. Beautifully groomed and plenty of space for entertaining outdoors. It was very close to downtown Carmel Valley! We walked to and from each day! I would definitely recommend this property!

Beautiful Home, we loved it! Does not disappoint

  • 5 of 5

Susan has a beautiful home with wonderful accommodations. We thoroughly enjoyed the firepit and stayed there in total with 2 families (4 adults and 2 children). There was plenty of room and space. The home was clean and well-maintained and had a cozy, yet spacious feel. The backyard is amazing and lots of places to explore for the kids. I wish we could have stayed longer. We were here for a wedding at the Holman Ranch and you couldn't ask for a better place as it is barely a mile away. Loved it.

Charming and perfectly situated

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for one of my daughter's weddings at the nearby Holman Ranch (just 1 mile away). There were six of us. The house is very spacious. The layout was perfect for us. We stayed with our children in the two bedrooms and the TV room on one side and our friends stayed on the other side – so they didn't have to be bothered by our kids.

The house is lovely. It is nicely furnished, it has a very cozy feeling and had everything we needed (actually it was much more fully stocked than we had expected). Sometimes we chose to hang out in the very comfortable living room and other times in the beautiful backyard, enjoying the flora, the views and the various furry friends that would come to visit (we saw deer in the back on several occasions).

While we were mostly involved in wedding related activities, the town is easily walkable from the house, and Carmel and Monterey are both easy drives.

The owner (Sue) was very responsive and quickly got back to us with answers to any questions that we had.

Overall we were very happy, and would recommend it without hesitation.
