It's so inspiring and restful, we won't be surprised if you decide to spend your entire day at home enjoying a great meal and a good book!

Carmel Tree House

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, relaxing property. Very well maintained, furnished and equipped. The bed was super comfy! A little tricky to find it in the dark and the driveway a bit steep, but you get used to it. Not far from town, but still better to drive to restaurants as the walk back is steep and very dark at night with no street lights.

Beautiful Treehouse in camel

  • 5 of 5

Spent Labor Day weekend with my fiancé at the most adorable little treehouse in Carmel. Everything was very well kept and clean, place was in a great location and just a short drive to all the shops and beach. The owner Steve was great at getting back to me promptly after a small internet problem. Would stay again for sure.

Pretty flawless stay!

  • 5 of 5

Have rented a number of times through VRBO in Carmel, but this was by far the favorite. Everything from check in process to quality of towels and amenities was perfect. Unique mid-century home, tastefully and comfortably furnished. Truly is built like a treehouse. We rented main house and also rented roomy downstairs attached apartment, perfect for additional guests we had joining us. It has separate kitchen and ensuite bath. Heat and AC work well, and there is a new full size HE washer and dryer. Detergents provided. Nice instruction manual for the home was on dining room table, with plenty of tips on local hot spots and vendors. We chose not the have daily housekeeping, but it was available. Owner was in contact via text, and answered any small questions we had immediately. Not your run-of-mill rental. Something very special, cozy and unique. Spotless. Will be back for sure!!

A wonderful treehouse built for two!

  • 5 of 5

A bright open space with attention to comfort. We loved our 6 night stay in this clean, well-appointed home. We enjoyed cooking breakfast and relaxing, watching the trees and fog through the wonderful large windows. The location was perfect and an easy walk into town for shopping and dining....our favorite spot for dinner was Cantinetta Luca. Steve replied quickly via email and text when we had any questions. We also were in town during the Bach Festival and would highly recommend attending a concert. Thank you for sharing your wonderful place with us...we hope to return again.

Just OK

  • 3 of 5

I was somewhat underwhelmed by our stay at the treehouse. It was loud from neighbors and traffic and it wasnt clear that the structure was right on Ocean Avenue til we arrived.There are not ample curtains as I like so sleep past 6 am while on vacataion!

We visit Carmel about four times a year and have had such wonderful experiences at other homes. This place was average. And in my opinion, way too pricey for what's offered. If I mentioned everything it would sound petty but it all added up to being a little disappointing. We were offered no help with our two small and reasonable requests. They did allow us to checkout at noon but I've never had a host have a 10 am checkout time. Also I'm still not sure why we paid a "service fee" in addition to a cleaning fee. Our reservation was made last minute so perhaps they overcharged us. It was clean but rustic for sure. College kids would like it for sure. Lots of improvement needed here...please note I have higher standards than most but this is my first disappointment.

Owner's Response: Truly part of a vacation experience is staying in accommodations that are suited to our taste. My goal in managing this property is to find suitable guests who will be happy with their choice of accommodations and enjoy both their stay with us and the area. The tree house provides a convenient location to Carmel and a mixture of REFINED COMFORT & RUSTIC CHARM. The tree house is professional cleaned and meticulously presented to our guests. We leave all visiting guests a bottle of red local wine & a box of local chocolate. Upon arriving there is bottled water in the refrigerator and the bathrooms are well stocked with white fluffy towels and paper products. Every bathroom has hand soap, shower gel/shampoo. There is a nice collection of local material to help with choices of activities and one or two complimentary duraflame logs for the fire stove. The kitchen is well equipped with 2 different coffee makers, and basic spices,vinegar & oils. The tree house is located in the trees, as you might image, and is nicely tucked away for privacy. Most guests are amazed at how quiet it actually is considering the closeness of the homes in this well know artist community. The airy light and almost zen feel that the property posses does not lend itself to heavy curtains for blocking light. There are many windows at all levels which during the day provide filtered abundant sunshine. All windows were professional cleaned about twenty minutes before the guests arrival. Early check in by two hours was also granted as well as a two hour late departure..... happy to accommodate in a busy Carmel summer renting season. The last home I rented in Nantucket MA.,(last summer) the check in time was 4pm and check out was 9:00AM. Quite early I thought, but we managed to be out on time as I am sensitive to the fact that it is a large task to have homes ready for incoming guests arriving the same day. In Nantucket the guests also are required to start the laundry!!!! I accommodate our guests at every opportunity and provide my phone so that they my call, text or email should they have concerns or special requests that I might assist them. I also granted a discount for the last minute rental. The VRBO booking fee of course is imposed by VRBO and I have no control over that charge. I believe it was implemented in the winter of 2016. It takes many guests by surprise. My regrets are respectfully extended to our guests that we were an unsuitable match for the holiday.....

Stylish, rustic property in a convenient location; awesome property manager

  • 4 of 5

I admire a place which is fairly simple but with a few stylish touches is given some real panache and this describes " The Treehouse". The emphases are in the right places with a luxurious bed in a loft area and fluffy towels. The kitchen is very functional and seemed to be reasonably equipped, although we did not cook a full meal so I can't truly evaluate it. Although on a well trafficked road, it was very quiet. And you can easily walk into town and/ or drive to Rte 1 to go shopping, into Carmel Valley or south to Big Sur. It is a great place for a couple and if you have 2 kids, they can be accomodated on futons.

I call it rustic because a lot of it is constructed of plywood so it is not a luxurious residence, despite its style. The futons and extra linens are kept in an unfinished area right next to insulation, which made me a little nervous, not knowing what insulation fibers might be in the pillows, etc. The bathrooms are also very spartan. The little toilet/ sink in the loft/ bedroom area could barely fit my 6'6" husband! I just tell any future renters this so they are not surprised as we were, because one could not appreciate this aspect of the place from the photos.

Overall we really liked this place and thought it a good value for expensive Carmel. And Steve, the property manager, was an absolute pleasure to deal with- very responsive and helpful. My one suggestion would be to have a book that explained the appliances, heat etc. like many rentals have but If this place had one, I never found it. There is a book with suggestions for restaurants etc. but this did not include this kind of house info.

Overall this was a great weekend rental for us and I would recommend it. I just wanted future renters to understand the full picture.
