Carmel By the Sea house description
Gaze at sunset ocean views from this charming new single story Carmel cottage that has been elegantly appointed with a decorator’s eye. The craftsmanship is impeccable and the attention to detail has created this gem in the heart of Carmel. Be ready to pamper yourself, and be indulged with luxurious amenities, to create a perfect Carmel experience.
Enjoy the beautiful artwork and gorgeous, yet very comfortable, furnishings in each room. There are beautiful hardwood floors throughout, marble counters with tumbled marble floors in the bathrooms and Berber carpet in the bedrooms. You'll feel a sense of spaciousness and openess with the vaulted, white-washed pine ceilings that feature low voltage halogen lights, all on dimmers to create the perfect ambience, day or night.
Prepare a romantic dinner for two, or an entire menu for all your guests in the fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, featuring a Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, temperature controlled wine cooler, and Miele dishwasher. The antique limestone countertops and tumlbed marble backsplashed compliment the custom cabinets and huge farmer sink. The whisper quiet Bosch washer and dryer, are conveniently and inconspicuously located under the counter in the kitchen.
The elegant formal dining room seats six. For entertaining your guests, gorgeous china, linens and formal glassware are included, so you can create a memorable event.
In the evening, or on a lazy Sunday, relax by the fireplace, equipped with gas logs for your convenience. Watch your favorite movie, or catch the ball game or golf tournament, in gorgeous High Definition cable, on your 50" Plasma TV, and Dolby Digital Surround sound system with DVD/CD player.
The master suite has french doors that bring the ocean views and sunsets into your room. It features a 31" LCD TV, elegant linens and down comforters to make you feel like royalty.
The breakfast room, includes an eating bar and country table with seating for six. There is a desk with an all-in-one fax/printer/copier/scanner and wireless high-speed internet to accomodate your laptop.
French doors in the breakfast room lead to the huge outdoor deck, made of reclaimed redwood, to create that Carmel atmosphere. Enjoy incredible views of the ocean and Point Lobos while you grill on the stainless steel gas barbeque.
Parking includes a one car garage. This is a smoke free home and no pets please.
You are just four blocks to downtown Carmel by the Sea, and all it has to offer. Stroll through the quaint shops, world famous restaurants and incredible art galleries, just a bit further and you are at the beach. Forrest Theater is just around the corner if you want to take in a local performance.
I am finally realizing my lifelong dream of owning a charming quaint cottage in Carmel. I am excited to share it with you. I have furnished it as I would my own home to complete my dream.
I want your experience here to be a memorable one, exceeding your highest expectations. I am more than happy to accommodate any special needs you may have, so please let me know how I can help. Please call for more information (see phone numbers below). I look forward to hearing from you.

lovely, well-equiped home

We booked this home for the Thanksgiving holiday for ourselves and a friend who was flying in to celebrate with us. Tom and Cyndi were very, very helpful and accomodating. Because we weren't sure when our friend was leaving, we were not sure what day we would be departing and Tom was very flexible with us. The venue is perfect for a couple or two couples. We very much enjoyed sitting by the fire and catching up until late in the evenings -- something you could never do with such comfort in a hotel. The fact that we could walk into the well-stocked kitchen, whip up a snack and pour a little more wine, made it all the better. It is a very clean home and well laid out for entertaining. It is also very conveniently located to the town, which was important to us, as we liked to stroll in for dinner. My husband likes to run, and it was very easy to get down to the beach (though the uphill on the way back left him a little breathless.) There is a beautiful deck out back with a wonderful view and a BBQ. Too rainy on our visit, but we will try it out next time. This was our fist vacation rental and we now can't imagine why anyone would stay in a hotel. We highly recommend this property in particular, and hope that it will be available the next time we visit beautiful Carmel.

A lovely, warm, comfortable home beautifully equipped. Four of us enjoyed it for a week and would definitely return. Cooking in the wonderful kitchen was terrific. Everything you need is right there. The house is perfectly located and an easy walk to town or drive to sights. Thank you for the hospitality.

We had a great time at your home in Carmel - only had one really rainy day(Christmas) but took a cab down to Rocky Point for dinner so didn't spend time negotiating the slick roads. Your place is absolutely everything one could ask for in a beautiful place to rent. I can not think of anything you and Cyndi could do to make it any better. Had friends from San Jose visit us and were so impressed that they plan to contact you for a future rental - they get to Carmel about four times a year so I am sure that you will hear from them. Again, I want to thank you for a wonderful place to spend a memorable Christmas week. You can be sure that when I plan another visit to the Monterey peninsula I will be in touch with you. Have a happy and prosperous 2006 ! Marney

Tom - Just a note of thanks to you and Cyndi. We truly enjoyed the lovely home - the location was ideal for us. We walked into Carmel several times to eat lunch, have coffee, and/or shop. We even ate dinner in several evenings and watched tons of movies. We both needed "down time" and rest. And that is just what we received. We did other "touristy" things too. I am especially anxious to have my photographs (8 rolls!) developed. I am an amateur photographer and have a display at a local gallery. I'm hoping some of these will be good enough to do a show with a California theme. The only bad day was our whale watching adventure; I got seasick....something I've never done before. We've been on cruises, on boats of all types but this was a nasty first time. But I recovered quickly the next day. We hated to leave; we want to return; my husband has heard nothing but raves about the house. Thank you again. Betty

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We have a real estate company called Gates Estates in the little town of Yountville in the heart of the Napa Valley. We are also fortunate enough to live in Yountville, which has a charm similar to Carmel,, with vineyards instead of the ocean.
Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea:
We have always wanted a charming home in Carmel, and we finally found the home of our dreams in 2005. We love coming to Carmel when we get away from our home in the Napa Valley. There is something magical about Carmel by the Sea for us, and we know you will feel the same way we do.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We know you will have a wonderful time staying in our home, during your visit to Carmel. We have made every effort to create a gorgeous, peaceful environment, with every amenity that we could think of. The views of the ocean and Pt. Lobos, from the Master Suite and huge deck are wonderful. The accommodations are first class throughout, and the decor will please the most discriminating eye. We are located just 4 short blocks from the village of Carmel, and are about 1/2 a mile from Carmel Beach, which is a wonderful walk. We are always available to help you, should you have questions or need anything during your stay. Our goal is to make your trip to Carmel, a most memorable one.
