Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Cypress Hideaway is the perfect location on Carmel Point, just 2 blocks from the famous, white-sand Carmel Beach, and 3 blocks from Carmel River Beach in a quiet neighborhood. It is a lovely multi-level, redwood home with high open-beam ceilings that is spacious yet retains a cozy feel. It has a wood-burning fireplace, unique with a log built into the hearth area that came straight from Carmel River Beach about 40 years ago. It was designed and built with a love of nature, in a 'U' shape surrounding a large California Oak tree that sits beautifully in the center portion of the property.  A lovely, large hedge of Cypress trees offers the utmost feeling of privacy in the yard and house.  The house has a nice front sitting patio, beautiful for morning coffee, a deck off the master bedroom, and another patio off the 3rd bedroom/studio. Cypress Hideaway has 3 nicely-sized bedrooms (one king bed, and two with queen beds), and 3 baths, one with a sunken tub above which is a skylight where you can gaze at the stars above.  It has a small, but fully functioning kitchen with all new appliances, dishes, utensils...etc. Located within walking distance from the historical Carmel Mission, downtown Carmel with myriads of shops and restaurants to enjoy, and Carmel Mission Ranch dining overlooking Carmel River Beach. Cypress Hideaway is a perfect vacation get away for families with children ages 6 and older, or couples wanting to experience the beauty and charm of Carmel living.

Why The Owner chose Carmel

Built in 1973 by my parents, we have kept this home in our family and have many fond memories in it. Family and friends gathered at our house over the years and shared great times there and at the nearby beaches. (We even won the grand-prize in the Carmel Beach Great Sand Castle Contest one year -- what fun!) I have fond memories of exploring tide pools at the beach as a young teen coming from the cold of Illinois where we'd moved from. The wood design was my father's (an artist) and the preservation of the california oak tree, and the cypress hedge was of the utmost importance to him when building the house. We have kept our home as a vacation rental so we can enjoy visits ourselves, and so we can have others also enjoy it and have great Carmel memories.

What makes this house unique

The woodsy feel of the house is special, and the many windows make you feel like you are outdoors. But with the tall hedges you also feel the utmost privacy. A wood-burning fire in the living room is so cozy. Of course, the short walk to the beach(es) makes this such a special location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a mini-family reunion arranged at last minute in Carmel .  I frantically started searching for a house to accommodate travelers from East and West Coast.

The pictures of Cypress Hideaway do not do it justice.  The house is very private from the front, so hard to image the surprise and enjoyment we all got at the unique floor plan and the way the house wraps around a very large tree in the back.  All bedrooms have access to individual decks that called us to set out and enjoy the privacy and ambiance.

Located within walking distance to the River beach and Carmel beach was all the more appealing.  Morning walks along the Carmel coast are breathtaking. Definitely a lovely experience all in all!  Thanks for allowing us the pleasure of a Cypress Hideaway stay.

 

Thanks again,

Debbie W. and Guests

Carmel Hide Away filled with charm

  • 5 of 5

Hidden away on the prestigious Carmel Point, is a gem of a Carmel charmer. The rustic and spacious home on three levels evokes the charisma the Monterey Peninsula is renown.

The property is well maintained with a very helpful caretaker at your call.

The living room has a beautiful fireplace and the kitchen is great if you are cooking in. The master bedroom has high ceilings and an attached bath. There is a lovely deck ajoining the bedroom. There is a downstairs suite and another bedroom and bath on the master bedroom level.

Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula has more restaurants than you could visit in a year! Noteable, Anton and Michele and Basil. Should you want to cook in, Bruno's has a great meat department and Neilson's supplies the gourmet in your traveling party.

The owner of the property was highly responsive and returned emails promptly.

I will return to this property when visiting the Monterey Peninsula in the future.

A sweet and unique place two blocks from the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this sweet, charming home that has the feel of living in a treehouse. It was close to everything - walkable to the ocean and to town. The owner, Nancy, and the manager, Doug, were both incredibly supportive and responsive to questions. We would definitely stay here again.

Cutest house/neighborhood! Very cozy and wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in this storybook house. It had such character and we absolutely loved everything about it! Zero complaints. If we ever come back we will definitely stay here again. The house was clean and the beds were comfortable. Great location too!

darling home in Carmel

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been going to Carmel for Easter for many years but this home was probably the best we've stayed in. Nancy is very thoughtful and responds immediately to any needs. The home is very comfortable and has rustic charm and character. The location ( 1 block from the beach and walk into town) cant be better. This home is a great value for the price and we will definitely book it again.

Charming and magical place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this charming house with a few friends in February. The place was more charming and more quaint than we anticipated. House is set up in a U-shape and it's really quite neat. Felt very magical with the tree in the middle. We loved it! Bed was super comfortable. The location really can't be beat. Super close to town and super close to the beach. In the beautiful neighborhood of Carmel with such neat places. Had us wanting to move there. Property manager was really helpful, responsive, and very accommodating. Internet was a little slow and Netflix/amazon was not working so we watched some movies on TV and it worked just fine. The fireplace was a nice touch too. Place does not come with much firewood FYI. There were some noisy neighbors in the very back of the house at night but we weren't sure if they were renters or actually owners of the property. We would stay there again!
