About Rogers

Hello! We look forward to accommodating you at our wonderful spot in Carmel Valley. Our son, Rogers helps us manage the guest house so he'll be your primary point of contact when coordinating your stay.

Rogers purchased this bungalow in 1989

Why Rogers chose Carmel Valley

Carmel Valley is known for its great climate, rustic feel, and beautiful scenery. We actually reside in the main house which sits lower on our property. There are no direct sight lines between the two houses and often times we don't even meet our guests (although we most certainly enjoy when we do). It has great southern exposure and views onto Garland Park, the eastern part of the valley, and the Santa Lucia Mountain Range.

What makes this bungalow unique

There are a quite a few nice things about the guest house. Please read the guest comments in our online guest book and view the photos as they best describe the benefits and amenities that our guest house has to offer.

We completely remodeled the guest house in 2005/06, and many guests have told us how much they like the 'feel' of the place. We've been on VRBO since late 2007 and have been excited ever since at having guests enjoy the beautiful place we call home.

Nice updated guest house but some issues need to be addressed. Would give 3.5 stars if allowed.

  • 3 of 5

Overall the place was nice, but we had some disappointing issues. The guest house is updated and has beautiful views. I emailed the owner the day of to let him know that we were looking forward to our stay. He immediately responded stating he was looking forward to accommodating us. With that said, when we arrived everything was closed up and uninviting. The rental was a little musty with lots of cobwebs and spiders. Once we opened it up and got some fresh air and cleaned up cobwebs, it was much better. The biggest problem was the rodent in the wall at night. It woke me up at 2 am on the first night and kept me up until 3 am on the second night. It was horribly loud. It was squeaking, chewing and digging all night in the bedroom. I notified the owner that morning and have not received any response since.

The bathroom is very nice and updated. The bed is comfortable. Pillows are flat as pancakes. If you like fluffy pillows, you may need to bring your own. We rented the house to go to a wedding. We had dresses and suites and the closet has a shelf in it that does not allow you to hang a dress or suite.

The living space is comfortable and provides amazing views. The kitchenette is nice and clean. Bring your own coffee. There is a coffee maker but limited amount of coffee grounds in a jar.

It's a great location. It's a quick drive to the restaurants and wineries in the village. It's also a short drive to get a massage and breakfast at the Carmel Valley Ranch.

I have rented dozens of homes on VRBO all over the country and out of the country. 99% of the time I have given extremely positive 5 star reviews. I was disappointed that I did not receive a response in regards to my sleepless nights due to the loud rodent in the wall. Had I received a response, I would have given a higher rating. I wish I could have given a higher rating and a better review.

Owner's Response: I apologize for not having responded regarding the rodent issue. My wife and I welcomed premature identical twins to our family this year and I haven't been on top of my inbox as much as usual. The rodents haven't been an issue for our guests in the interim so hopefully they have left. That said, I take guest comfort and communications very seriously - I apologize for not exceeding your expectations in this regard.

Wonderful location, comfortable house, great views. Best of all was the hike recommended us through the redwood canyon, only minutes away.

Quiet, restful, with extraordinary view!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed four nights! The rental is a great home base for exploring the town of Carmel with cute shops and restaurants. We also spent time in Carmel Valley Village tasting wine and picnicking with sandwiches from a local store. We spent our evenings out on the deck looking at beautiful hills and listening to wildlife. Nights were chilly but the rental had blankets so we could stay warm in the comfortable chairs on the deck. It was so relaxing watching the sun set. The rental had everything we needed to enjoy a light meal, share a bottle of wine and reconnect in a beautiful setting. Even the bathroom brings a back to nature experience! We loved our stay!
