Welcome to 'Forest Hideaway'!

The irresistible lure of the sea can be experienced both in distant ocean views and up-close in the seashore decor in this recently updated 2-bedroom, 2-bath Comstock cottage that features many of the unique historic touches that make Carmel architecture so unique.

Located just a mile and 5 minute drive to downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, this charming home is an escape into tranquility, nestled into a sunny spot surrounded by pines and oaks with gorgeous distant vistas of Point Lobos and the sparkling blue Pacific over a canopy of trees. Pebble Beach, Monterey and Pacific Grove are just minutes away by car and Big Sur is a 45-minute drive.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in Monterey, tickets for a Scheid Winery tasting in Carmel-by-the-Sea, and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush bathrobes and over-sized towels.

Park at street level in the quiet residential neighborhood and descend a few brick steps to a courtyard surrounded by a privacy screen of shrubs and trees. A table, 4 chairs and an umbrella are provided with a Weber Gas grill so you can enjoy a casual breakfast, lunch or dinner in this secluded and harmonious setting. The front entrance leads to a redwood-paneled living room with beige wall-to-wall carpeting, white open beam ceiling that is typical of Carmel cottages, a gas-burning Carmel-stone fireplace, and a sophisticated color scheme of ocean blues, coral, browns and sand. Enjoy distant ocean and treetop views revealed through a wall of windows with the distinct feeling of being in a forest.

A long narrow deck with railing runs along the back and side of the house with two white rocking chairs providing a lovely spot for morning coffee or sunset glass of wine. There is also a white Adirondack chaise lounge that is great to read a book being surrounded in this beautiful forest hide away

A cozy grouping of furnishings in front of the fireplace includes a deep-chocolate-brown plush sofa/chaise combination that can become a queen sofa with azure blue pillows and comfy throws, a burl-wood coffee table, contemporary patterned upholstered side chairs, a wooden Asian chest serving as an end table, a 55-inch flat-screen TV and a striped area rug with colors of the sea-coral, blue and earth colors. A seashell motif in artwork and accents weaves throughout the house.

A sunny den, with a bright color scheme of coral and seafoam blues, is situated just off the front entrance overlooking the courtyard. A beautiful Asian Print and some accents compliment the wooden desk with Asian influence as well and built-in shelving with cookbooks and other reading material make it a nice place to work or contemplate.

The freshly painted kitchen is well conceived and will make gourmet meal preparation fun and easy.
Features include stainless steel counter-tops and back-splash, stainless steel electric range, stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher. There is a bistro table for two that overlooks the patio and also is a nice place to sit and talk with the cook. Saloon doors lead to the adjacent dining room that although open to the living room inhabits its own space along the wall of windows, which allows diners to imbibe the distant ocean view along with their meals. An oval wooden table with upholstered chairs can seat up to 8. Beautiful dishes, glassware, serving pieces and linens will allow you to entertain in high style. Throw open the sliding glass doors that lead to the deck and let in the fresh ocean breezes and enjoy cocktails and appetizers while watching the sun set.

The two bedrooms both have white bead board paneling -- another typical Comstock touch -- and a palette of sea-foam greens, blues, coral and sand. The master -- with treetop views -- has a king bed with Memory Foam topper (that can be converted to two twins, if desired) with an ivory coverlet and a coral and white starfish-themed comforter, an antique wicker dresser with a 32' TV and bedside table and white shell lamps. There is a coordinating wicker chair in the corner that allows one to sit in the light filled corner gazing out thru the forest. The master bath with its coral palate has a coordinating tile shower with white luxury towels , spa amenities and shell motif art. You know the sea is close by.

The second bedroom, with high windows, has twin beds (that be converted to a king with Memory Foam topper) with sea-foam blue comforter and sand-colored duvet and Coastal Art. Coordinating Curtains and pillows and throws make this a designer room. The second bathroom with white towels and contrast colors of blues and sea-foam green and Sea inspired accents make you feel you are in a ocean resort. There is a tub with shower.

There is a large garage with washer and dryer and all that you might need for a trip to the beach-beach towels, beach chairs, blankets, umbrella, coolers, plastic wine glasses, tableware and more.

One car can park in the garage but there is a steep drive leading to it. One additional car can be parked in the driveway; on-street parking is available too.

THERE IS A SMALL OCCUPIED UNIT BELOW THE HOME WITH A SEPARATE ENTRANCE THAT IS THE CARETAKER'S RESIDENCE THAT IS NOT PART OF THE RENTED SPACE. YOUR SPACE IS PRIVATE AND YOU WILL NOT EXPERIENCE ANY NOISE FROM THE CARETAKER THAT WOULD INTERFERE WITH YOUR PRIVACY OR EXPERIENCE.
