Guestbook comments from the owner
Frequent so-happy visitor
Carmel has always been a favorite place - and for about twenty years, every time I go to Carmel, I make an effort to stay only in this wonderful property. I have stayed just a week, and taken the house for a month at a time a number of times. Both are fantastic.
It is just outside town, feels extremely private, with a wonderful view of Point Lobos and of the water. There is a beach just off the private yard, and a very long trail along the beach or up on a trail that leads into Carmel.
Honestly, everyone I have ever gone there with spends most of the time cooking meals, sitting around on the decks outside or sitting around in front of the fire inside. Be sure to ask for two loads of wood, because you won't want to leave the house very often!
