Property description

This is Clint Eastwood's town, best known for being dog-friendly. Hidden away in the woods, our rustic cabin is like a treehouse with all the amenities . . minutes from downtown, beaches and a tennis court around the corner.

ASK ABOUT OUR TWO-NIGHT SPECIAL: Book two nights and receive a discount on the nightly rate (offer good through December 2016 for two nights only ). Let me know first before actually booking and I'll manually enter the special rate of $190/night instead of $200.

You'll find our cabin is perfect for two . . . Simple. Comfortable. Cozy (250 sq ft) and Quiet -- plus minutes from downtown and spectacular sand beaches. Decorated with antique saltillos from Mexico, papercuts from a well known artist in Guanajuato, and a few other south-of-the-border items that have made their way north, the cabin has taken on a colorful atmosphere reflecting California's early settlers.

Bringing your precious Fido? No problem . . . Carmel is a pet-friendly mecca for dog owners. The main beach is set up to allow for off-the-leash walks and many restaurants in town have set aside an area for dog owners. As a courtesy to our other guests, we ask that pets not be left unattended and not be allowed on chairs or the bed. Pet bedding and food bowls are to be supplied by our guests. We can also arrange pet sitters. We do charge an additional fee of $25/pet per visit as well which will be calculated manually.

We provide a modest Continental breakfast to get you started in the morning . . . coffee, tea, fruit, yogurt and biscotti! No kitchen is available, but there is a microwave, small refrigerator, kettle, coffee pot and toaster. You'll be located on the same property as our family home, totally separate and 50 steps from the main house. We're long-time residents, knowledgeable about the area and able to help you find some of the many unique spots guidebooks don't mention. A third person (preferably a child as the futon folds out on the floor) may be accommodated on a very thick futon ($30/visit). We are Pet Friendly and hope you'll bring along your Fido as well.

If you're visiting California's central coast for the first time, you'll find Carmel and the surrounding area an idyllic haven boasting nearly 100 miles of spectacular shoreline - described as the 'greatest meeting of land and sea.' The unbridled beauty of Carmel and Monterey County's landscape and the mild, year-round weather offer endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Family-centered activities abound and there truly is something for everyone.

If you're visiting California's central coast for the first time, you'll find Carmel and the surrounding area an idyllic haven boasting nearly 100 miles of spectacular shoreline - described as the 'greatest meeting of land and sea.' The unbridled beauty of Carmel and Monterey County's landscape and the mild, year-round weather offer endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits, from hiking, kayaking, and mountain biking, to golfing at legendary Pebble Beach. Family-centered activities abound, as children and adults revel in exploring the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, watching the great migration of gray whales, or visiting the natural history museum in Pacific Grove. Whether your interests include car shows, musical festivals, or weekly farmers' markets, there truly is something for everyone.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1961

About the owner: My brother and I live on the property in the main house built by my father back in the early 60's. We're both artists - Tom being involved in woodworking and I am a textile-printer-painter-jeweler (yes, I know, too many things to do any very well). We're both in love with Carmel, Tom especially, as he's been able to live here all his life. Our grandparents lived in Carmel, too, just before the Great Depression. My grandmother was even asked to entertain at the Hearst Castle during one of Hearst's grand soirees.

Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea:
Well, it wasn't us that made that decision. It was our mother. She spent some of the best years of her life here in Carmel. Her father was an artist and dabbler - he painted himself, but also liked to build. The old Wells Fargo in the Valley is one of his creations as well as a couple of houses in Pebble Beach. My mother's family lived in what is now the Carmel Art Association Building on Dolores and we still have one of the old carved, wooden doors you'll find there as well. My grandmother, a great beauty, was a pianist, wrote music, acted in the Forest Theater; AND, was once invited down to the Hearst Castle (we're still not sure if she went by herself or not). Oh, family skeletons!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
What is there not to do in Carmel? If you haven't been here before, I'll have a list of things to do that will make your head swim. I must mention, of course, that you might run into any number of movie stars - I saw Clint at Whole Foods one day. I even ran into the former president of Mexico, Vicente Fox. But, aside from tracking all the movie stars, I recommend keeping your visit very simple: just walk. Really, what's a vacation but to just relax and de-compress?
