Owner info

About the owner: I have been living on this property in the Carmel Highlands for over 30 years. I love the long views out to the ocean; the sunsets are amazing and even more so, I love watching the moon set and reflect on the ocean. It is a quiet and peaceful retreat to come back to.

Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea:
This property is in a quiet and serene setting just minutes south of Carmel and on the coast. You can walk from the house to the ocean and do a 45 minute loop. Monastery beach is on the way to town with a level walking path to the Carmel River mouth. Walking on the white sand beach of Carmel is only a 15 minute drive away. Whale watching during whale season from the house and the coast highway. Owner/caretaker on the property living in a cottage with seperate entrance. House, Spa and deck are very private.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The spa area is totally private and seperate from the house. There is a large hot tub, chase lounges, sun umbrella and changing area. Ideal for rest and relaxation, a glass of wine, sun bathing, napping or watching the stars and the moon.
