Carmel By the Sea house description

Welcome to "Restful Refuge Guest House"!

Escape to your own little island of tranquility in this 600-square-foot studio guest cottage that perfectly encapsulates Carmel's unique style of casual comfort and urbane sophistication. Situated in a lovely quiet residential area, it is just minutes from stunning white beaches and the many exciting shops and restaurants of downtown Carmel and environs. The 2-bedroom, 2-bath main house is also available for rent together with the guest studio or separately (see #3276 on this website for more information).

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and sparkling cider, spa passes from the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, Scheid Wine passes 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, embroidered spa bathrobes and over sized towels and beach gear.

Natural sisal and jute rugs over a wide-plank wood floor contribute to the upscale beach motif, with its white, chocolate brown, tan and sea-foam color scheme and bright, upbeat tone. Warm yourself by a cheery wood stove while you play games, read or watch a 46-inch LCD HD TV with dish network service from a cushy white couch and chaise with an ottoman coffee table.

If you choose, you can shop for fresh meats and seafood, fruits and veggies, gourmet cheeses, wines and pastries at nearby purveyors of local delicacies and prepare your own meals in the full-sized fully equipped white-tiled kitchen that has a flower-filled window box above the sink overlooking a lush wooded area. The kitchen is equipped with a gas range, microwave, dishwasher and side-by-side refrigerator. A dark wood drop-leaf dining table behind the couch is set up to seat 2 but can be expanded to accommodate 6.

A king bed, which can be converted to 2 twins, is topped with Memory Foam and appointed with luxury linens and a generous supply of throw pillows.

A closet and two Bombay bedside bureaus provide ample storage. The studio can sleep 2 adults and 1 adult or child on a roll-away bed with Memory Foam mattress, and another small child on the couch (which is not a sleeper sofa but deep enough). The spotless white-tiled bathroom has a tub/shower combination.

              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.

              Other Activities: Shopping, Boating, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa, Whale, dolphin & otter watching!
