Recent Carmel-by-the-Sea Reviews

FANTASTIC HOME!! PRIVILEGED TO ENJOY IT.

5 of 5
I rented "Blue Skies" for the month of December to enjoy the beautiful weather and other things Carmel has to offer. This home offered enough room for my kids to drop in and spend some time with me, and its beautiful backyard enable my dogs and I to launch onto multiple walks every day followed by naps in the afternoon sun. The home is amazing and very spacious. The master upstairs is terrific and its balcony enables a morning cup of coffee, serenity, and beautiful views. All the rooms are top rate and very comfortable. Add a first rate kitchen, dinning room, washer/dryer, and a few TVs and it spells a fantastic visit. For those new to Carmel, the location of Blue Skies also provides easy walking access to most of the town's great restaurants. I've been visiting and renting homes in Carmel for 20+ years and now Blues Skies is at the top of the list!! Shawn Sackman - Shingle Springs, CA January 3, 2018

Perfect location and spotless

5 of 5
The Home Port property was spotless and perfectly maintained for a longer stay. The host provides local coffee, nuts, guides and a stocked kitchen. It was a warm and welcoming home, and we look forward to returning.
