Overview

About the property

Sunshine high above the Carmel fog

Located just three minutes by car off of Carmel Valley Road, the house is a brisk twenty minute walk into Carmel Valley Village and a leisurely twenty minute drive into Carmel-by-the-Sea! Our treetop property is located on a sunny hillside in Hitchcock Canyon full of wildlife and beautiful wildflowers.

Excellent hiking trails nearby include: Kahn Ranch, within walking distance of the property, however, drive-in only. Free permits must be displayed in your car; go to Garland Regional Park to download.

Garland Regional Park is approximately 10 minutes west on CVRoad and has trails for all levels of hiker. A book of day hikes is at the house.

The master bedroom features a queen-size bed with an European rattan bed frame. Fluffy comforters and linens envelope one in cozy comfort. As you prepare for sleep, the sky offers you views of the moon as it glides across the sky. With vaulted ceilings, it is very roomy and bright; it has fabulous views of Osborne Ridge to the south and west. Small deck and stairs to 'Lower Paradise' add an element of comfort.

The upstairs bathroom, shower/tub, has a glass-block wall allowing the sun to shine in while ensuring complete privacy.

The second upstairs bedroom is roomy and bright with tall windows facing west and north. It has a queen-size bed, high boy, Swedish-style chair to relax in, extra futon cushions stored in the large closet and a very unusual piece of antique furniture. My partners are brilliant at finding the most amazing objects and art to decorate the house with!

Walking down stairs, linger a moment on the landing to enjoy the exquisite tile work while looking out the window on the east for wildlife sightings! You might just see a pair of intelligent animal eyes peeking back at you!

The downstairs bedroom, with private access to the bathroom, has a queen bed and french doors leading to the patio.

The downstairs bathroom, accessible from the bedroom or the living area, is decorated with tiles hand-crafted by local artisans.

The kitchen offers a gas stove/oven, refrigerator w/ice maker, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, blender and has a washer/dryer in the pantry. Stoneware, utensils, pots and pans, cutlery ~ everything one might need to make their stay here as comfortable as possible are available.

Sit inside or enjoy dining al fresco on the patio. Fire up the propane BBQ while feasting your senses on the views, the colors, the sounds and the smells of the canyon while enjoying homemade fare. Or order take-out from one of the restaurants in the village. Kathy's Little Kitchen-Burgers/ Mexican, Thai Village, Roux-French, Running Iron-famous for their Lonesome Burger and several more restaurants to choose from.

There are numerous wine tasting rooms within walking distance, a dog-friendly community park and pool (pool open after Memorial Day) and several fun shops including "Casa del Sol".

Local art galleries including Valley Girls' and Patricia Qualls are gaining international attention. Carmel Valley Village has a motorcycle museum and Carmel Valley History Museum; check website(s) for hours. Laguna Seca-Mazda Raceway/Recreational area is 9.8 mi. away (15 minutes). Carmel Beach and River Mouth Beach are approximately 20 minutes by car. Asilomar Beach and Steinbeck's Cannery Row in Pacific Grove are 40 minutes away.

Living room has a flat-screen, DVD's or Roku only-no local programming. Comfortable leather sofas invite a nap or perhaps a board game?

We are child and pet friendly. $50.00 fee for dogs/cats. The yard is not fully-fenced, pet gate available. Dogs must stay on lead or respond to voice command. No roaming off-property, please. CV Community Park and Carmel Beach (16.5 mi.) allow dogs off-leash.

Please let me know if you are intending to bring your pet (dog, cat, etc.) and what kind of pet you have.

Parking is limited to three (3) cars.

Enjoy your stay!

Wonderful stay in the Carmel Valley

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this home (guests were two adults and 1 todder). Comfortable home, well-equipped kitchen, fun decor, loads of space (indoor and outdoor) and a spectacular view. There was an issue with the hot water our first night, but Kathy (the manager) was very responsive and resolved the problem as quickly as possible. We'd highly recommend staying here!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit at Kathy’s residence 6/12 - 6/14, sandwiched between stays at SF and Newport Beach. We all agreed that this was by far the favorite place we stayed. The house is electic and neat with plenty of space for 4 (and likely more) adults. It was furnished as if we lived there (others can be too sterile) and the surrounding woods, filled with critters and views, were a source of entertainment. Kathy bent over backward to be accommodating, even offering to pick up food for some our party that were “stranded at the house” one evening. If at all possible, we will make our way back to this wonderful house in this beautiful valley!

Immaculate, Adorable..Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful Home..Spacious but intimate,. Perfect for our young adult children and their tired parents!. Deck for morning coffee.., yoga moves and star gazing. Would love to come stay when we have more free time to cook, lounge and enjoy.., and not a wedding to attend. Perhaps for the Big Sur run next year???:) Thank-you , we loved it.

Laguna Seca Raceway is a quick 15 minute drive over Laureles Grade from Carmel Valley Village! Can't get much closer than that! The Vintage Car Parade usually travels through the village on the way back to Pebble Beach:) Amazing eye candy for vintage car lovers! Refuge

'Imperative for the human spirit. The sound of the waterfalls and music in the zero gravity chair room is delightful. I truly feel like we all need a place like Refuge.' Guests must be clothed.
