About Karin Twohig
I have been living on this property in the Carmel Highlands for over 30 years. I love the long views out to the ocean; the sunsets are amazing and even more so, I love watching the moon set and reflect on the ocean. It is a quiet and peaceful retreat to come back to.
Why Karin Twohig chose Southeast Carmel
This property is in a quiet and serene setting just minutes south of Carmel and on the coast. You can walk from the house to the ocean and do a 45 minute loop. Monastery beach is on the way to town with a level walking path to the Carmel River mouth. Walking on the white sand beach of Carmel is only a 15 minute drive away. Whale watching during whale season from the house and the coast highway. Owner/caretaker on the property living in a cottage with seperate entrance. House, Spa and deck are very private.
What makes this House unique
The spa area is totally private and seperate from the house. There is a large hot tub, chase lounges, sun umbrella and changing area. Ideal for rest and relaxation, a glass of wine, sun bathing, napping or watching the stars and the moon.

My wife and I wanted a quiet getaway after the helter skelter of a wedding. This property was gorgeous and quiet and had the feeling of being remote but with all the access and amenities you could desire. If you want to split time between adventuring in Big Sur and enjoying Carmel/Monterey, then I could not recommend a better spot.
Perfect for a quiet respite with a magnificent view
We highly recommend this property. It's location in the quiet Carmel Highlands with a stunning view of the ocean is perfect for escaping the hustle of daily life.
The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could ever need.
The living and dining rooms are very inviting and look out over the Pacific ocean. We enjoyed a movie night to celebrate my wife's birthday.
The bedrooms are downstairs so they are extra quiet and the beds are very comfortable.
It's the perfect location to explore the Big Sur coast, Carmel or Monterey.
We hope to return soon!
Wonderful location. Very quiet and private, but perfect for exploring the area. Beautiful home and gardens. Karin is a great host and very easy to work with. The house has everything you could want or need on a vacation, way better than I have experienced in other rentals. We wish we could have stayed longer and hope to be back in the future..
Luxury on the hill
Wonderful place we really enjoyed the house and the area.
A PERFECT Home away from home
As a long time VRBO renter, this home is one of the very best we have stayed over the years. The house situated in a beautiful quiet hill. That ocean view from the back patio is spectacular!! The house is very clean, kitchen is well stocked just like my own house. On the way out one morning we spotted a wild turkey roaming around. Point Lobos State Natural Reserve is one you don’t want to miss out that is only mins away from the property. We highly recommended this wonderful home and hopefully we would return some day soon. The 2 free guests passes to Monterey Aquarium is such a bonus and we had a great time there after a beautiful drive in the 17mile drive area.
An exceptionally beautiful, comfortable and gracious home.
This property in the hills overlooking the Pacific just south of Carmel is very special. Light pours in from the western sky and the waves glisten outside oversize windows. We were lucky with February sun, which enabled us to sit on the deck afternoons and take it all in. In other directions windows frame beautiful foliage, while indoors Karin has arranged white orchids. The furnishings are both fine and comfy, the secluded hot tub much needed after hiking trails up and down the Coast, and the fireplace very welcome at night. Plush towels, robes, a well-stocked kitchen--all in all we felt quite pampered. A perfect place for our family reunion!
