"We had a great vacation here. The house had all the amenities that we needed and more. I like how the house was laid out and how everyone seemed to have plenty of space. It was big enough for our party of eight. The communication with the owner, Rich was excellent. Again, thanks for having this house available on vrbo. what a gem! I highly recommend booking this rental for your next vacation!! You won't regret it.
I highly recommend staying here."

"We had a wonderful experience staying at this great home during the Monterey Car Week. The location was very convenient making traffic management bearable. Jennie is very caring and her communication and follow-up was excellent. The view from the house was awesome and the coastal area nearby is spectacular. The house is clean and comfortable - no shoes worn in this house. We'd hope to stay here again if we have the opportunity and I'd recommend this property to anyone. One thing to be aware of is that the driveway is very steep and not conducive to anyone who is mobility impaired or anyone who has a car that does not have a very strong parking brake."

"Now that the nieces and nephews in my family are raising their own children, my siblings and I decided that it was time to begin a new tradition of coming together with our spouses annually for a "Sibs' Reunion". My husband and I volunteered to plan the inaugural event and quickly chose Carmel as our destination. We have loved the town and the area always and wanted to introduce family coming from Florida and Indiana to the beauty and charm.
I cannot imagine a better experience than we had at The Aloha Estate! While the photos show the beauty, they cannot do justice to the lush greenery and privacy of the grounds - with many hidden seating areas and that lovely Carmel breeze. We used every inch of the house and the Cottage as well - our Florida couple chose the Cottage and claimed dibs on it for future visits, saying that it was their "own little world" with every amenity they could imagine needing.
We spent each morning drinking coffee around the kitchen table, catching up on one another's lives. Our group ranged in age from 57 - 75 and we all easily walked into town, strolled the shops and lunched at Clint Eastwood's Hog's Breath Inn - a good time.
We ALL slept soundly...possibly because the owners have gone to great lengths ensuring that each bed is comfy, that there is a lovely thick bathrobe for every guest. And what's nicer than a Keurig Coffee Maker whenever you need one? I counted at least 4 of them complete with every choice of coffee or tea. What can I say? This was a pampering weekend for all of us.
Sadly, I did not work out in the well-equipped exercise room because the rest of the estate was just too much fun. If you're looking for luxury, space, every thoughtful amenity and responsive owners who want your stay to be the best, this is the place."

"We have now stayed at this gorgeous, quaint, charming, and comfortable home four times, and are already counting the days until we return. Everything about it is perfect -- the location (steps to the beach, and a ten minute walk to the main street), the quality of the furnishings and amenities (cozy, stylish, well-appointed, upscale in every way), and the thoughtfulness of the owners (who have really covered off every possibility to ensure that there is nothing one could want). We feel so lucky that we found this home, and have relished every moment we have spent there. It is the perfect jewel box of a Carmel cottage."
