            We spent a few nights in Carmel in December and this was the perfect spot! The home was beautifully decorated and all the furnishings were top quality and very comfortable. Everything was spotless! The pictures do not do justice to the designer interiors and immaculate landscaping. The neighborhood is very quaint and charming and has a country-village feel. The main part of town is only a few blocks away and many must-see destinations a only a short drive away. I would highly recommend this house for any length of stay!

            Absolutely perfect accommodations! The place was just as beautiful as Carmel By The Sea! Even nicer than the photos depict. We have visited Carmel dozens of times in the past 20 years and this was one of our favorite trips. Anh and Nancy made us feel welcome and comfortable from the moment we arrived. The house was well stocked, clean and ready. No detail was missed. The house is about three blocks up from the beach, about five blocks from Ocean Ave (shops, etc.) and situated right where you want to be to really experience this special place. You will feel like you have moved to Carmel while you stay at this home! I can't say enough about the house, working with the owner, etc. Everything was outstanding. My family and friends who joined us are already clamoring for a return engagement. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful home!

            My husband and I stayed here for our 30th wedding anniversary, and it was everything we had hoped for! The cottage is so charming and quaint on a quiet street and is furnished with French antiques throughout. I fell in love with this home immediately and Carmel-by-the-Sea. The master suite is amazing as all the other rooms. The owner Anh left no stone unturned--the house lacks for nothing. The beautiful landscaping and gardens only add to its charm. The gourmet kitchen is to die for--I just wish I would have had more time to cook in it, but our stay was so short that I only cooked breakfast for us. We lit the fireplace twice--yes, in June--that wouldn't happen in South Louisiana! If you love a beautiful home just 3 blocks from the beach and walking distance to town, this is the place to rent! We will definitely stay here again!

            We went there with our three kids 20, 16, and 9. The location was good. We walked to the beach every day, and also walked to town. The upstairs master was a great place to sit during the sunset and have a glass of wine. The house was very clean and well maintained. We also enjoyed having a bonfire on the beach for New Years Eve and there were plenty of beach chairs as well as fire wood.

            Owner response: Thank you for your review. You are the first review, in 3 years, that only gave us 4/5 stars. We would like to make sure that all our guests leave the property with great satisfaction. Please let us know what would make this property a 5 star to you. Thank you for being our guests.

            I celebrated my 62nd birthday in this home and wish I had celebrated every other birthday there as well. PERFECT is the only word to describe this home. Close to town and very close to beach. 3 patios including a second story balcony and a perfect kitchen with professional appliances. Did I mention the great stereo and fantastic furniture along with the great view from the patios. THE REAL FIREPLACE WAS USED EVERY SINGLE NIGHT OF OUR 7 DAY STAY AND I MEAN USED. I think I burned an entire load of wood which the owner was nice of enough to supply with the house. Dining for 8 in the dining room and 6 outside on patio next to kitchen and 4 outside on the side of home fronting a great view of the grounds. WILL RENT AGAIN, AND AGAIN AND AGAIN. Pictures do not do this house justice. The Master bedroom and bath were to die for as was the private upstairs patio off the bedroom. I AM NOT KIDDING THIS HOUSE IS THE BEST IN THE TOWN. Have stayed in Carmel at least twice a year for the last 25 years and there is not a doubt in my mind that this is the only place that I want to stay in Carmel by the Sea, especially in the summer when the highs are in the 60's there and in the high 90's in MS. The owner and property manager were both gems and they were very easy to deal with and promised more firewood next visit. WOW......................I still cannot get over how much of a deal this house was considering the area. Hopefully the owner will not read this review and will keep the rent low. Considering what you are getting this house should rent for much, much more.

            The house is beautiful. Unusually the very good pictures don't do it justice. The rooms are all have great individual character and provide lots of options for accommodating a good sized group. The layout is extremely flexible with enough space for communal gathering as well as also providing separate space for peace and quiet. It is extremely well-equipped and the location is perfect, being within easy walking distance of both the beach and main part of town. The agent/owner were extremely efficient, responsive and easy to deal with. Definitely our first choice for any return trips to the area.

            My wife and I and our kids age 10 and 7 were fortunate to be able to spend a month in this lovely Carmel home during the Summer and can't overstate how much we enjoyed our time there. Almost immediately after arriving we felt completely at home. This beautifully designed home and the high-end, tasteful furnishings make you quickly forget that you are renting and make it seem more as if you are a guest in a good friends home. The house is well positioned between the beach and the village allowing for a quick stroll to either. That month was some of the most relaxing time we've spent together as a family and we hope to be back within the next year or two if we are able. We can't recommend highly enough a stay at this Carmel home.

            It has been our good fortune to rent this beautiful home for a month the last two summers. The pictures provided by the owner accurately show its charm and pristine condion. Every convenience is provided to make staying here a joy. A corner setting greatly enhances the views of the delightful gardens and patios and gives an open feel. The sounds of the ocean nearby can often be heard in the quiet of the evening. The perfect location of this home in the Golden Rectangle of Carmel makes walking to town or the beach a pleasure. We look forward to returning next summer!

            We have rented many vacation homes before, and this one by far blows all the others out of the water! Not only is it situated in a great location, just a few blocks from the charming town as well as the ocean, but the home itself is absolutely wonderful. Our family of 5 (with 2 teenagers) found it to be very well decorated, comfortable, and with lots and lots of character. Every convenience we could have imagined was ready for us in the kitchen, which was surprisingly well laid out. Many build-ins and cozy spots to lose yourself in reading a book - inside or out, and movies available for those who don't want to read! The beds were comfortable, as was the family room seating, and the home was well stocked with everything you'd ever need on your trip (something many homes lack). It was old world charm and feel, yet with all the touches and convenience of a modern home, including air conditioning (if you really need it). This was only one stop on a month long tour from Arizona to California - and our only wish was that we would have stayed here longer!

            We had a wonderful stay over Memorial Day weekend - it felt a whole world away from our busy Bay Area life. The house is located in a quiet part of Carmel, only a few blocks from the ocean, and is surrounded by an abundant but well-kept garden. The interior is open and spacious while still maintaining a cozy feel, and the decoration is each room is well-suited to its space. Every detail is attended to: we found every amenity we could ever want and more (a kitchen well-stocked with kitchenware, an iPod-compatible stereo system designed to play throughout the home, a massive library of DVDs, beach towels in case you want to go for a swim...). Unlike other places we have stayed on vacations, being here we really felt like we were at home. With everything having been taken care of for us, we were left to enjoy without interruption our time in this quiet, clean, beautiful space. Next time we are in Carmel, we definitely hope to stay here again.
