**Please Call for Details

Welcome to "La Casa Fina"!

Capture the full charm of the Carmel-by-the-Sea experience in this tidy two-bedroom, two-bath cottage called Casa Fina that is within walking distance of the heart of the village, with its many shops, boutiques, art galleries and award-winning restaurants. Located in a sunny quiet neighborhood, this friendly one-story dwelling, which has been freshly painted inside, can accommodate six.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a bottle of wine or sparkling cider (upon request), day passes from the renowned Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, Scheid Wine tasting room passes in downtown Carmel, and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, slippers, oversized towels and beach gear. Everything you could think to want, from down comforters to hair dryers to food processors, is provided.

A seashore motif, replete with shells, driftwood and soft sun-washed colors of sea-foam blue, sand and white, melds with Pottery Barn flair to produce an environment that is sophisticated yet offers total relaxation and escape. The spacious living room features a coved ceiling with spot lighting, three large paned windows with white shutters that allow in lots of light, hardwood floors and a wood-burning fireplace. Comfortable yet stylish furnishings are accessorized with plenty of pillows and soft, textured throws.

Enjoy gourmet meals in a separate dining room -- with built-in cabinetry and a view out through hydrangeas and an orange tree to the street -- that can seat six people at the sturdy wooden farmhouse table. Place settings for 12-plus are provided. There is a cabinet pass-through to the well laid out, fully-equipped kitchen with its cabinetry painted in a deep ocean blue, tile floor, a self-cleaning gas stove, refrigerator and all the small appliances you could ever desire. A separate laundry room with stacking washer-dryer is just off the kitchen.

The sunny master bedroom, decorated in sea-foam green and earth tones, has a king-sized bed with luxury linens, plenty of built-in cabinets and closets and views out through bougainvillea blossoms to a spacious back deck. The master bathroom with tumbled-marble tile has a large shower with bench seating and is equipped with sturdy hand-rails.

A second bedroom, which has two twin beds with luxury linens that can be put together to form a king with Memory Foam topper, looks out to a smaller back deck and a bistro table and chairs where you can imbibe the fresh ocean air while you sip your morning coffee. Adjacent to the second bedroom is a sunroom where you can cozy up to read a book from the library provided. Or, the day bed in this cheerful space can be made into to two additional twin beds or a king to convert the room into a third sleeping area. Both these rooms likewise are decorated in sea-foam green and earthen colors. A second pristine white bathroom in the hallway between the two bedrooms has a tub and separate shower, also equipped with hand rails.

Two decks in back surrounded by a hedge of pampas grass and furnished with wrought iron chairs, tables, a chaise lounge and a gas grill, provide plenty of sunny space for relaxation, recreation or dining.

Two cars can be parked in the driveway; additional street parking is available. Dogs are allowed subject to owner’s approval.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much. We absolutely loved your adorable place. So beautifully designed and so cozy. We went to the beach everyday. The breakfast at La Bicyclette was so fantastic that we went there twice. Watching the sun go down at Spanish Bay was awesome with the bagpipe playing.

We had a wonderful stay in this very comfortable home. It's a great location for walking to town and is in a peaceful and quiet setting. The home was in lovely condition when we arrived and the management was attentive and helpful throughout our stay. We were able to walk to many enjoyable restaurants and shops. We would highly recommend this lovely home.

Perfect, perfect, perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Can't remember when we have enjoyed a vacation more! Casa Fina is so welcoming and comfortable and it was such a treat to call it our home for five fabulous days! My morning walks to the village and ocean with my 11 year old daughter was a perfect way to start each day!

From the moment we walked in (the wine and cheese, so special) we wanted for nothing, there attention to every detail is amazing. The towels, linens and robes were very luxurious. Normally we do not like to cook on vacations, however, we found it hard to leave Casa Fina in the evenings. Our evening fires, music and wine tastings made cooking even seem fun (the kitchen has everything you would ever need and a grill on the patio).

Thank you for making our stay in Carmel unforgettable!

P.S. Our six year old Grandson Connor, really summed it up “Nana and Papa, I don't ever want to leave”!

A "home" to come home to!

A "home" to come home to!

After a day filled with exploring, tasting, eating, people watching or dog walking, it is wonderful coming back to a place that envelops you in privacy and comfort.

Beauty surrounds you - soft, comforting colors; rooms you can put your feet up in; lush couches in the living room or private, cushy beds and pillows to fall into in bedrooms that welcome a tired shopper or traveller.

Dinner available practically around the corner; or better yet, a well equipped kichen for cooking your favorite fare to share in the inviting dining room, formal or casual, your choice.

The luxury of two separate bathrooms, with "spa" like amenities, one must take advantage of to enjoy without having to "book" a time at some other location.

Here is the perfect home away from home where anyone can find relaxation and familiarity!

Long weekend

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying here in the hills of Carmel! The house was even better than the pictures depicted. We had a wonderful weekend with riding our bikes all over Carmel and the 17 mile drive. It was very easy to get to town on our bikes, somewhat more work coming home, but we found the roads that were less steep. Comfortable beds, and nice showers, with good lighting were a pleasant surprise. The neighborhood was very quiet. I'm sure you will enjoy staying here as much as we did! We are already looking forward to our next stay here.

Sunny, comfortable Carmel Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a comfortable, yet classy place to enjoy Carmel when we found this unique little spot. We can highly recommend this newly renovated "beachy" cottage which we found located in a quaint, convenient location on a quiet street with friendly neighbors.
The cottage is well appointed and bright with total comfort! The sofa and chair in the living room made us feel right at home, and the back yard with spacious deck provided ample space for a relaxing BBQ.
We can't wait to return to this cozy cottage!

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

The Monterey Peninsula is unique in its combination of breathtaking natural resources and a multiplicity of cultural and entertainment possibilities. You can find something for every possible taste. For nature lovers, there is the diversity of mountain and sea, for picnicking, surfing, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tidepooling, biking and more. If you want a man-made excitement, we have art galleries galore, excellent fine-art museums, local theater, outstanding restaurants, boutiques, a natural history and a children's museum, a world-class aquarium, and that's just for starters. History buffs will have a field day exploring the adobes of Monterey. There's so much to do that you cannot possibly do it all in one visit, which means you will have to come back.

Other Activities: Kayaking, Health/Beauty Spa, Shopping, Wildlife Viewing
