Carmel By the Sea house description

This is a wonderfully charming, classic Carmel cottage, with a 'wavy' wood-shingled roof, beautiful landscaping, and an outstanding location. We've taken great care to preserve the vintage feel of our home but have totally renovated the interior to create a comfortable and elegant retreat from a full day of sightseeing, shopping, beachgoing, or whatever you choose to do in and around this uniquely beautiful part of the world.

The interior is creamy and silvery to reflect the quality of Carmel's light; although we've given great attention to design and detail, there is a graciousness and comfort that are truly welcoming. With all the excellent restaurants around, there is the temptation to eat out at every opportunity; but, we have the unbeatable advantage of being diagonally across the street from well-known Bruno's Market, which allows for a quick run for anything from caviar and pate to steaks and barbecue.

There's a well-stocked wine/liquor shop across the street as well. The point is, you can walk to everything in Carmel-by-the-Sea from this home without having to drive to the supermarket for supplies.

It's also a short walk to our beach, which is unparalleled in its beauty: magnificent cypress trees give way to the clean, white sand of the exquisitely intricate shoreline. There are paths for long oceanside walks dotted with many vantage points for just sitting serenely and planning the rest of your stay in beautiful Carmel.

We have created a private sanctuary in our patio/garden, fenced-in, quiet and kept just the right temperature and ambience in the evenings with a heat lamp and comfortable, classic, cushioned furniture for dining and relaxing.

Our furnishings are those we have chosen with care for ourselves. This is not a rental with plastic furniture and overdone beach motifs; rather, this home is a tasteful reflection of the way we think our very particular guests want to live when they are on holiday and the way we wish to live when we are back in Carmel.
