Property was great for large family wedding. We had 11 adults (4 couples) and all had own bedrooms. Were able to use the pool and spa throughout. Would note although our weather did not require, house does not have air conditioning except for a unit in the cottage. The two rooms facing the pool do get warm from the day’s sun. Communication with the owner for assistance was great and response time almost immediate. Would suggest including some instructions in the house on using the hot tub and perhaps even the pizza oven if that made sense. Overall was a great place to stay in Carmel valley. Easy walk to the wine tasting locations and restaurants also. Would definitely book again. House did have rollaway beds but likely best for children as space in main house was limited for them to be used as separate beds for adults.
Bachelorette weekend for 20!
This house was spectacular! Spent a 4-day weekend here with a group of 20 women celebrating impending nuptials. Whomever built this place paid attention to every detail - the stone, wood, arches, windows everywhere, secluded spaces here and there, along with large living spaces to accommodate a group. The yard was gorgeous, with beautiful views, a great pool and spa, and lots of space for lounging, lawn games, BBQing, fires in the fire pit, etc. It felt super private and quiet, but was also less than a 5-minute walk to town. It was great to have a spacious guest house included in the rental as well. When we arrived, the hot tub wasn't hot, and the owner quickly sent someone to help us get it fixed. It worked well the rest of the weekend, and they also checked in with me by text to make sure we weren't having any issues. We had unseasonably wet/cool weather while there, but the house was so comfortable we didn't feel cooped up during the times we had to stay inside. We had the maximum number of people allowed (20), and in addition to the beds and rollaways they brought in, we had to use an air mattress (which we brought), but that fit well in the guest house along with the bed that's already there. The kitchen was well-appointed, including a nice basket of snacks waiting for us to enjoy, and all of the spices, oil, and other basics we could want. We had a beautiful weekend there, I would highly recommend it.
A piece of Paradise
We were out west for our youngest son’s wedding which was in Carmel. This property had everything you could ever want or need. The property managers were amazing!! As short term landlords ourselves, we were impressed. We loved it and so did the whole family. We had a fabulous time!
Nice to see another 5 star review hope to have you home again
Very nice house with great amenities!
Nice to see another 5 star review at the Villa
Lovely stay in Carmel valley at your home! Lots of space, beautiful outdoor area. Thank you so much for our lovely weekend!
nice to hear another happy stay see you soon again
WOW! A true estate and walk to tasting rooms!
We were offered this incredible property after a storm shut down power at our previously rented Pebble Beach home. And what a place this is! We had a ton of room for our 5 couples and the grand room with enormous fireplace was perfect for entertaining! The kitchen was ideally suited for our cooking needs and there's even a pizza oven that uses real wood to heat in the kitchen. The rooms are well appointed and the beds are extremely comfortable!
It has a private gate you can close at night , a pool, hot tub, one gas bbq/one charcoal grill, a supply of firewood, and a great view out back of the mountains behind.
Note: You are within eazzzzzzzz-ee walking distance to The Village and a plethora of winery tasting rooms so no need to drive or Uber!
If you have a large family gathering or want to throw a party for friends, this is ideal! We celebrated my 60th birthday here and it was absolutely perfect!
Feel free to reach out to me for any particulars/questions you might have!
Hi Nice to see another guest happy hope to see you again soon
