Dear Amazing Owners,

Just thought I would let you know that we SO ENJOYED and LOVED your beautiful Carmel home! The pictures on the website are exactly what it looks like. Your house was filled with love, clean and so well-maintained and this comes from such a neat/clean freak! We loved the flow of the house, the beautiful windows bringing the outdoor in and also, all the cozy seating areas along with the fireplace! We enjoyed walking, shopping and dining in Carmel and also, strolling on the beach! We went into Monterey one day but mostly just enjoyed Carmel and the ambiance of your beautiful home. We appreciated using your well-equipped kitchen, as we have some wonderful cooks in our family, Your dining room and your outdoor patio was perfect for all our gourmet meals or just for our wine, cheese and bread!

Thank you for your amazing customer service and for giving us the opportunity to rent your lovely home for our annual cousin reunion!

What a wonderful house!! We had everything we needed supplied by the exceptional owners. They were great to work with and we would love to return. Every day we walked into the beautiful town and down to the was heaven!! We would recommend Katy's for brunch, driving Carmel Valley, and visiting Point Lobos Park. Overall, do visit to relax. Even the property has two garden courtyards to enjoy and architecturally designed to bring the outdoors in with the huge windows and doors.

This house is so warm and charming and comfortable. My family rented this house over the holidays and found it to be absolutely perfect for entertaining, relaxing and feeling at home. Everything was clean and in order, and all the appliances, light fixtures, electronics, etc. worked perfectly. My husband has Parkinson's and it was especially nice to be in a single level home with such good lighting. I would definitely rent this house again...soon. Thank you for sharing your family home with us.

Enjoyable Week in Carmel-by-the-Sea

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 spent a week at this home in the beginning of September. We found it to be very comfortable. It was nicely appointed and had an inviting decor. It looked exactly as we expected from the photos we'd seen of the house on this website.

This house worked well for us. We had a single rental car and were able to easily split up because the house was a fairly short walk into town with all its shops, art galleries, and restaurants (we especially liked Dametra Cafe). It's a bit longer walk to the beach, where we saw people light fires on the sand around dusk. Pt Lobos State Park is a short drive away and I visited it 4 times that week, to give some idea of how highly I regard that park. We saw sea otters, seals, sea lions, and coastal mule deer. We also made it down Highway 1 to Big Sur for the first time (no mudslides or rock slides as on earlier trips!), where we went to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. The scenery all along Hwy 1 is amazing.

I would definitely recommend staying at this home.

From the Owner

There are many memories in this house. Our parents hosted many famous guests (artists, writers, celebrities, and politicians) here from the very early days of Carmel. You feel the warm and hospitable nature of the house the minute you step in. We have many repeat guests year after year because of how our house feels.
