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 Carmel-by-the-Sea

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.

Very relaxing and beautiful home

Some friends and I stayed here for the at&t pro am at pebble beach. The house was perfect and the hot tub area was very tranquil for the sunsets. Can't wait to come back!

Nice View and Convenience

  • 4 of 5

Great location to be at for sight seeing , point Los Bos and shop Carmel, among other outdoors activities. Place is spacious for 5, and very clean. Very nice and private spa area with hot outdoor shower.

This place might not be for people with young kids as a concern for the owner. We did not know this until we booked the place. If you have children below 15 year of age make sure you ask about any concern that the owner has.

It's semi-private, there was someone stayed at the cottage

right next door. Even though they are very quiet and I don't see them but I feel like we are not alone. Also we were unlucky to be in at a time there was some constant chain saw/construction going between 8-4 right down the street. Making a would be tranquil place not so

Other than that, the place is spectacular!

Owner's Response: I welcome families and yes, I was concerned about three boys under the age of 13, especially in regards to the hot tub and hardwood floor. The chainsaw noise was out of my control. Neighbors decided to trim their trees in preparation for winter storms. Will most likely not happen again for several years. I hired a caretaker to keep an eye on property and storm drainage. There is total privacy between the cottage and the main house.

Really Enjoyed the Carmel Highlands

  • 5 of 5

We spent several nights and enjoyed them all. The house is just lovely with very comfortable seating and sleeping. All the amenities were there as well as beautiful views. A pure joy. I would love to stay there again, I recommend highly.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house is great and is stocked with everything you need. It's so nice to stay somewhere that already has spices and staples--it makes it easy to cook or fix simple things. The house is spacious and the view from the deck is beautiful. We enjoyed several glasses of wine while watching the sunsets. The location is close to Carmel, but very private.
