About The Owner

My husband was born and raised in Carmel, we were married in Carmel Valley 30 years ago and have been going to either the village or Carmel often in those 30 years. This area is home and we plan to retire there someday. Currently we live in the San Francisco Bay area. Our country home has become our retreat, a place to unwind and recharge .We love to get out of the city and into the sunshine and slower pace of the country. We never grow tired of looking out at the vineyard filled valley from our deck or driving into Carmel for a sunset walk on the amazing white sand beach.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Carmel Valley

We found this property by chance on a business trip to Carmel. Once the realtor opened the gate to the property and we saw the beautiful meadow filled with lupine, poppies and ancient oak trees we knew we were home.

What makes this house unique

We love the quiet. You will notice when you first get out of the car the only sound you hear is the crickets and the frogs. We love the views of the valley, watching the finger of fog moving in and out of the valley below in the early morning or evening. We love eating dinner out on our deck in the soft candlelight on a warm night. We love to drive into Carmel to walk on the beach at sunset. There are so many things to do but often we just stay home with a pile of books and sit on the deck reading and relaxing.

Beautiful and tranquil retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a 40th birthday celebration with a few friends. The pictures, while beautiful, do NOT do it justice! It is peaceful, with expansive views that really take you away from it all.

The home is very comfortable, with a impressively stocked kitchen, but we really spent all our waking time outdoors because it's so amazing. The pool was perfect for cooling off in the lovely 80-ish degree weather, and we took in the views while dining al fresco on the upper deck. The fire pit was a lovely way to end each evening, while listening to all the night critters scurrying around and watching the moon rise.

We only left the property once to go into Carmel Village for wine tasting, which is wonderful, with lots of tasting rooms to choose from (I am a member of Joyce Winery, and highly recommend their tasty and totally affordable wines!).

This is definitely a place we would love to stay again, without hesitation!

Private, beautiful surroundings- Comfortable mountain home

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this beautiful property for a quick weekend trip for 7 of us to Carmel Valley for our nephew's wedding. We were very pleased with the beautiful grounds, landscaping and multiple hang-out spots on the back deck. The weather was perfect and we were able to enjoy the pool and decks and lovely views.

The house was perfect for us- my husband and I, our 2 adult children and their spouses and my 88 year old mom. The downstairs bedroom worked well for her, and the kids took the upstairs apartment. That left the beautiful upstairs bedroom for us!

The living/dining areas were very bright and comfortable. We really enjoyed the view from the many windows overlooking the yard and valley below.

The home is located about 3.5 miles up a very winding mountain road so we tried to minimize trips away from the property. We all thought it would be a lovely place to stay for a longer (and less hectic) period of time in order to enjoy all the property has to offer.

Unique, secluded and magical place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our 4 adult children who live all over the USA met up here for our annual get together. We had plenty of room, and the amenities are awesome. We took in Monterey and Carmel one day but hung out at the house the other times. Quiet and extraordinary at night and stunning views all day. We'll be back!

Perfect Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, remote home tucked away in the woods. It was the perfect place my family was looking for to spend more time with each other enjoying the beautiful view and cooking together. I can't wait to come back here!

Fantastic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I throughly enjoyed our stay in this cottage. While it is a bit of a ways away from town, the amenities more than made up for that. We’re already talking about a return visit in the coming months.

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house, nestled far away from most civilization, is such a gem. Unlike many weekend escapes, this one was easy to immediately relax in - I almost regretted ever leaving the house. Would be amazing in the summertime for constant outdoor lounging, but I especially loved waking up for a morning soak in the hot tub overlooking the fog/clouds below. A good to know is that there is zero cell coverage so make sure anyone needing to contact you knows that!
