Carmel By the Sea house description

Perfect peaceful family getaway or reunion location. Sit and enjoy the gardens while listening to the waves crash on the nearby Carmel Beach. Our home is a 1750 sqft 3bed / 2bath beach-home with soaring vaulted ceilings and wall to wall LIGHT! It's tastefully appointed to help you immerse yourself in a California beach experience.

There's lots of living, cooking and 'kids play' space inside and outside the home. There's comfortable dining and sitting space for 8 in the living room, the dining room and on the back patio. We have 4 flat screen TVs, all equipped with DirecTV and Netflix. There is a 3D TV with 9 viewing glasses, a3D DVD player and a VCR and a small video library including a few 3D movies! , so there's plenty of options.

Broadband Wifi reaches all areas of the house. The sound system is a professional 6-speaker discrete in-ceiling system. Use our CD's or bring your own iPod music.

If it's a good book, you prefer, we have a small library tastefully hidden away next to the living room fireplace. The gas fireplace is controlled electronically with a remote for convenience and safety.

When it comes to relaxing after your tranquil Carmel day, you can further indulge yourself in our memory foam mattresses in every bedroom.

In the morning, take your time to enjoy a fresh coffee drawing in the fresh scented morning air in our extensive flower gardens to the front and back of the house. We have many roses, magnolia, lemon, orange, mandarin, Japanese maple, Mexican sage, agapanthus and many more. In short, the typical Carmel paradise. Don't be surprised to be sharing it with hummingbirds, squirrels and blue jays.

The young kids will love the double bunk bed room, with their own special secret bonus room filled with goodies!

It's an ideal location for families with easy access to both Carmel beaches (5 blocks away). The Mission Ranch Hotel and Restaurant (owned by Clint Eastwood) is a fantastic restaurant to have 200 yards from the front door. It has a Piano Bar as well as outdoor seating to watch the sunsets and the sheep !The Sunday Brunch is highly recommended ! They operate a first come first served system. So you have to arrive and join their wait list. The electronic buzzer they give you to call you for your table works at our home. So, wander down, make your booking, pick up the tag, and have a glass of wine at home while waiting. This gives some bonus time for those who have settled into the Carmel pace and need a little longer to get ready ;-)

Less than a mile away is the shopping and restaurants of 'Carmel by the Sea'. It's also a pleasant 20mins stroll down Scenic Drive overlooking the beach. Nearby is Point Lobos State Reserve. It's beaches are so beautiful several movie beach scenes have been filmed there.

The famous Carmel Mission, and Mission Trail Park are also about half a mile walk. Beautiful beaches and coastal paths extend for 3 miles past Carmel River Valley Beach towards Point Lobos.

                          The town of Carmel has many world class restaurants, art galleries and boutiques. We and our property manager will be happy to give you our recommendations.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: We live in the Bay Area and have fallen, completely and utterly in love with Carmel. We love to visit our home there as often as possible. Come and see why !!

                          Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea:
                          In a word, location ! Our home is so close to the 2 beautiful carmel beaches. Imagine having to decide which one to walk to !! For dinner the choice is even more difficult. A gentle 200 yards to the ex-mayor's mission ranch hotel & restaurant, or a short trip to ocean avenue for carmel's very best restaurants. Our favorite there is Dametra, but Mission Ranch is so relaxing with its Piano Bar and outside seating watching the sunset and the sheep !

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Our home can sleep 8 comfortably. It's 1750 sq ft. You can make dining arrangements for 8 indoors or outdoors, in the back yard ! The living room also seats 8 for movie watching. All bedrooms have slumber-guarantee memory foam mattresses! We have 4 flat screen TV's throughout the home with DirecTV, Netflix, 3D movies and DVD's.
