            We spent a very enjoyable month at the Tuckaway. That is my wife, and our 2 dogs.It is very well located,quiet and peaceful,very dog friendly,convient to beach,town and highway.The tuckaway is just the right size for a couple,well set up,and a very pleasant,wonderfully landscaped yard,just don't sleepwalk,very steep edge of gardens.We found the Big Sur to be "Awesome" ,underpopulated(so rare in cali.), unlike the penisula. The Tuckaway is well situated to explore in any direction. We would certainly consider staying there again, the owners are most accomadating and pleasant.

            This was our first experience staying in a rental versus a hotel in Carmel. We are so happy we chose the Tuckaway. It was perfect for the two of us and our little dog. It was clean, cozy and very quiet. The location is great for walking to town or to the beach. Very close to Mission Ranch restaurant which is a great place for drinks, piano bar and dinner on the patio. Bill and his wife were great and very personable. The photos and description are right on and I have already recommended this place to my friends.

            This place was fantastic! So much so, my girlfriend and I are thinking about making it an annual thing. Bill (the owner) was extremely nice and hospitable. From the very beginning Bill was great. He was unable to meet us because he had to work, but was great in his explanations on the Tuckaway. When you walk into the Tuckaway get ready for a beautiful succulent garden and a nice walk way into the studio. When you walking into the studio you have all the amenities you need: stove, oven, t.v., ect. We didnt watch any t.v. wile we were their because we were exploring the area. That's another thing that was great. The location was awesome because we were able to go to Pfeiffer-Burns Falls, Pfeiffer State Beach, Point Lobos, and many other great beaches and dining areas. The best thing of all The Tuckaway is dog friendly, you can imagine the hardships finding a place for one dog, but we have three. We had a great time and if you choose the Tuckaway you'll have a great time too.

            My husband and I had a wonderful 3 night stay at the Tuckaway for our anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised by how incredibly close to everything we were (downtown shops and restaurants, the mission, Point Lobos, Hwy 1) but yet removed enough that it was incredibly quiet and peaceful. Carmel is a charming town with lots to see and do in and around the town, as well as nearby in Monterey and down the coast to Big Sur. The Tuckaway is beautifully appointed, immaculately clean, and has all the creature comforts of home done well. It was also incredibly private and quiet considering it is underneath the main house, but it looks out onto to it's own garden area. We were very appreciative of Bill's wonderful overview and tips on places to eat, and things to do (the hike through the canyon and the redwoods and up for the views was incredible). We definitely plan to return and will never consider staying in a hotel/motel after experiencing a place like this. Thanks for a memorable experience.

            We stayed at the Tuckaway for 2 nights. Within minutes of arrival, we felt completely relaxed and just in awe of the tranquility, the attention to details, the peaceful outdoor settings. The cottage is so unique and it has everything one will need and more. Just bring your overnight bag and you will feel like you are home away from home. It is so convenient and close to down town, which is where we spent some of our time. We hope to be back again and create the great memory that we had. Thank you Bill for having us.

            We just spent 4 great days relaxing at Tuckaway. We we're travelling with our dog, and this was exactly what we wanted. A private, beautiful and reasonably priced place to stay to explore Carmel and environs. There's a beautifully landscaped and practical fenced yard for the dog, great lounging areas outside and a perfect living room/kitchen/bedroom space for all of us when the weather closes in. Location makes it really easy to visit Carmel and Bill was the perfect host. Thanks again. John and Lorian

            We had a wonderful weekend trip to Carmel and enjoyed the "Tuckaway." It was very quiet, peaceful, and private. The view was nice and we enjoyed sitting in the lounge chairs. We brought our 2 little dogs who enjoyed the fenced in backyard area. The house was as described and in great condition. The place was perfect for the two of us and 2 dogs for the weekend. It was only a short drive to The Mission Ranch where we had a great dinner. The bed and linens were incredibly comfortable; we slept very well. Even though it is below Bill's main house, we did not hear any noises from above. The Tuckaway had all the amenities of home- wifi, 2 tvs, dvd player, bose radio, kitchen, refrigerator- making it a great place to stay for the weekend. Next time we come back to Carmel, we will definitely stay at the Tuckaway.

            A lot of the things that make Carmel such a special place are reflected in the qualities of the Tuckaway Gem: it's peaceful, secluded, beautiful, unique, welcoming, and comfortable (more in the sense of lushness and attention to detail than of feeling worn or intended for repeated use). I was there for 3 days with my dog (a long overdue vacay from family duties), and definitely intend to come back soon, hopefully with spouse in tow. I felt absolutely comfortable bringing my pooch, but note that Bill thankfully provides towels, bags etc. to make sure his doggy guests don't leave a lasting impression! Upon arrival, I found no evidence of dog fur on the furnishings or any surprise deposits in the yard, and the place doesn't smell like dog. Everything you might need is provided on a compact scale, and the decor throughout the unit feels classic and fun. There are a lot of little unique touches throughout, but I was most struck by the way in which-- by accident or design-- the place feels so well-thought-out. The Tuckaway is a small place-- not uncomfortably so, just enough to feel cozy in the best sense of the word-- and because of this, Bill has clearly had to figure out how to provide for all of the needs of his guests in an effective and aesthetically pleasing way. This is hugely important to someone like me, since I love my creature comforts (big cereal bowls, good light in the bathroom and flat screen tvs etc.), but also want to be surrounded by beauty. Despite being located in a residential neighborhood, and tucked under Bill's house, the TG feels very private. Although there's a deck off the main house that provides the eave for the TG (see pix), the main house has a separate deck and yard off its western side , so despite the occasional (heard) presence of the owners, you'll mostly feel like you're the only people there. The house is set into a hill, with an adjacent ravine providing a natural break from neighbors, and you can see a slice of the ocean in the near distance. The garden is just so special... very classic Carmel with lots of non-cutesy, appealing artistic and structural elements. The neighborhood is great-- easy access to walking trails and not far from downtown Carmel. Per the pix, the house is curved; the actual unit is formed of two rectangles in a boomerang shape: sitting area, dining/kitchen/laundry, bed & bath. The bed/bath ceiling area is lower; not a problem for me at 5'6", but tall visitors be warned. Highly recommended!

            Four days is not long enough for this wonderful place. Bill is a very talented designer and landscaper. Just sitting in the yard (with our dog) is a refreshing experience. The view is amazing and if you enjoy bird watching this is a wonderful spot! You will feel at home and if you can drag yourself away from Tuckaway, the rest of Carmel is just as enchanting. We had one night of rain but Tuckaway is very warm and cozy. We highly recommend it and hope to return in the spring or summer.
