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 Central Coast California

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.

Great views great hot tub out door shower comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean and bright. Excellent working fireplace. Well equipped kitchen. Comfortable beds. There is only one full bath and a half bath so two couples must be friendly. Wonderful place to sit and read. The only drawback is returning to the house after dark when you must make a tricky left turn off Hwy 1 , but we got used to it. You have to drive into Carmel, can't walk. The views and quiet are worth it.

Owner's Response: All guests agree with you that the view and quiet make up for the short drive into town. There are two different turns you can make from Highway 1 to get to the house. At night you can see the lights from a long way away. I give directions to guests that are different from most GPS and a much easier turn to make. Many guests don't mind the one full bath and the half bath because there is also a private outdoor shower and the temperature is mild enough year around to go shower under the stars if you want. Thank you for your review.

What a fabulous home.

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate. It was the best stocked we have stayed in. The beds were very comfortable. We were two couples vacationing.

The fact we had to share the bathroom on the bedroom level was no problem with a half bath on the main level. We would have loved to had more time to stay there.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Karin's home in the Carmel Highlands is stunning. The pictures and description from the VRBO website were accurate. The views from the deck were priceless. The home is clean, well-stocked, and was a pleasure to reside in for our week vacation. Karin understands hospitality. I rarely want to repeat a vacation experience since I prefer to see new destinations, but this home will get a repeat visit from me in the future. Thank you, Karin!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific 8 night stay and thoroughly enjoyed this lovely home. Everything we could possibly need was provided. Very peaceful location and Karin is delight to work with. We love the deck, taking naps, cooking and exploring the beautiful park nearby. Excellent local dining and a good fresh fish market at Crossroads Shopping Center. We left feeling totally refreshed. We consider it our home away from home and look forward to future stays. Highly recommend.

AWESOME.

  • 5 of 5

In a word, AWESOME. Last year we stayed here for 6 days and this year came back for 12. Karin is the best host. The house is spacious and easily accommodates a family with a few kids. The area is wonderful for hiking. Just yesterday we found yet a new place to hike. Go south on Rt 1. On the left just after the first beach is an old petting zoo and an antique fire engine. Go down there. Great view. Stay here. You'll love it.

Great place to Relax

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the house. The kitchen was great and was well stocked. Only negative a new oven is needed very old and hard to use. The beds were amazing and comfortable. The porch was great and you can get an ocean view. The location was not too far from town and was a good location.

Thanks for a short but great vacation.
