Carmel By the Sea house description

**Please Call for Details

Welcome to "La Casa Fina"!

Capture the full charm of the Carmel-by-the-Sea experience in this tidy two-bedroom, two-bath cottage called Casa Fina that is within walking distance of the heart of the village, with its many shops, boutiques, art galleries and award-winning restaurants. Located in a sunny quiet neighborhood, this friendly one-story dwelling, which has been freshly painted inside, can accommodate six.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a bottle of wine or sparkling cider (upon request), day passes from the renowned Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, Scheid Wine tasting room passes in downtown Carmel, and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, slippers, oversized towels and beach gear. Everything you could think to want, from down comforters to hair dryers to food processors, is provided.

A seashore motif, replete with shells, driftwood and soft sun-washed colors of sea-foam blue, sand and white, melds with Pottery Barn flair to produce an environment that is sophisticated yet offers total relaxation and escape. The spacious living room features a coved ceiling with spot lighting, three large paned windows with white shutters that allow in lots of light, hardwood floors and a wood-burning fireplace. Comfortable yet stylish furnishings are accessorized with plenty of pillows and soft, textured throws.

Enjoy gourmet meals in a separate dining room -- with built-in cabinetry and a view out through hydrangeas and an orange tree to the street -- that can seat six people at the sturdy wooden farmhouse table. Place settings for 12-plus are provided. There is a cabinet pass-through to the well laid out, fully-equipped kitchen with its cabinetry painted in a deep ocean blue, tile floor, a self-cleaning gas stove, refrigerator and all the small appliances you could ever desire. A separate laundry room with stacking washer-dryer is just off the kitchen.

The sunny master bedroom, decorated in sea-foam green and earth tones, has a king-sized bed with luxury linens, plenty of built-in cabinets and closets and views out through bougainvillea blossoms to a spacious back deck. The master bathroom with tumbled-marble tile has a large shower with bench seating and is equipped with sturdy hand-rails.

A second bedroom, which has two twin beds with luxury linens that can be put together to form a king with Memory Foam topper, looks out to a smaller back deck and a bistro table and chairs where you can imbibe the fresh ocean air while you sip your morning coffee. Adjacent to the second bedroom is a sunroom where you can cozy up to read a book from the library provided. Or, the day bed in this cheerful space can be made into to two additional twin beds or a king to convert the room into a third sleeping area. Both these rooms likewise are decorated in sea-foam green and earthen colors. A second pristine white bathroom in the hallway between the two bedrooms has a tub and separate shower, also equipped with hand rails.

Two decks in back surrounded by a hedge of pampas grass and furnished with wrought iron chairs, tables, a chaise lounge and a gas grill, provide plenty of sunny space for relaxation, recreation or dining.

Two cars can be parked in the driveway; additional street parking is available. Dogs are allowed subject to owner’s approval.

                      The Monterey Peninsula is unique in its combination of breathtaking natural resources and a multiplicity of cultural and entertainment possibilities. You can find something for every possible taste. For nature lovers, there is the diversity of mountain and sea, for picnicking, surfing, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tidepooling, biking and more. If you want a man-made excitement, we have art galleries galore, excellent fine-art museums, local theater, outstanding restaurants, boutiques, a natural history and a children's museum, a world-class aquarium, and that's just for starters. History buffs will have a field day exploring the adobes of Monterey. There's so much to do that you cannot possibly do it all in one visit, which means you will have to come back.
