"This home is absolutely gorgeous. Our group of 10 visited Carmel Valley for a wedding at the Holman Ranch, and the Carmel Valley Retreat was perfect! Lynda and Chuck are great to work with and are very accommodating. You feel like you are in your own little world when enjoying the beautiful garden and pool area. Further, the wedding I was with had rented a few VRBO properties in the area, so I visited a couple of them, and its not even close. If you want a great experience in Carmel Valley, this is the place for you!"

"Our stay in Carmel was incredible, and renting this home made it so. The home is incredibly clean, artistic and comfortable. My husband, 12 year old son and 9 year old daughter would have been perfectly happy spending much more of our visit to the central coast in the home and on the surrounding acreage (the Steinbeck pond and trails). Jef had great suggestions on where to eat, taste wine and hike. He also provided us with tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium then had the perfect suggestion on where to eat in Monterey later that evening. I highly recommend staying here! I've rented through vrbo often before but have never been moved to write a review. I wanted to let you all know how special this place and Jef and Steph are. My family will always remember our stay in central Cali as being so special thanks to our stay in this incredible home."

"Perfect place for a large family reunion! Everyone congratulated me on such a find. And they all had a blast!! There was so much to do - relax and enjoy the views, hike, cool down at the pool, feed the chickens, prepare MANY meals in the kitchen, hang out at the bonfire, play bocci ball, etc. The property was perfectly sized for our large group and offered quiet spaces for those who needed a break from family festivities. We even set up tents on the beautiful lawn under the large tree for those of us who love camping. All the accommodations were clean and well kept. And the safari tent was awesome! I would love one for my future backyard or vineyard. The kitchen was stocked with all sorts of spices and kitchen ware. And so many different areas to hang out in! Ann was a perfect hostess even before we set foot on her property. She responded quickly to my requested dates and answered all of my emails during the weeks prior to our weekend stay. I am sure we will be returning!!"

"Our group consisted of 7 adults and 3 year old. We enjoyed lots of room, perfect weather and brunch out on the patio. The house is very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed, even toys and books for our granddaughter! The property was close to the wedding venue for which we were gathered, but still an easy drive to Monterey & Carmel. The owners are friendly, helpful and accomodating! We had a great time and would definitely recommend this rental!"
