About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Picture yourself enjoying a relaxing vacation steps from the beach at the end of Ocean Avenue in this adorable home within a few blocks of Carmel's picturesque downtown, shops, fine art galleries and delightful restaurants. Lounge on the large private deck with views of the ocean and famous Pebble Beach Golf Club. Take a memorable stroll or watch the breathtaking sunsets along Carmel's famed mile-long beach. There's even a bike in the garage if you would like to go for a ride.

The Sea Nymph, only steps to the beach, features a spacious master suite with a view of the ocean, romantic gas-log fireplace, bath with tub and separate shower, vanity w/double sink plus a walk-in closet. The comfortable living room features a vaulted ceiling, several sets of French doors to the deck, a 46' HDTV and a second gas-log fireplace. With dimmed lights, soft music playing, or viewing the TV, you'll enjoy using the well-appointed kitchen and eating in the lovely dining area at the end of the living room. The second bedroom has two single beds and a large window looking out at beautiful bouganvilla. The home also features a two-car attached garage w/opener, washer & dryer, a bicycle and to help you stay in touch...hi-speed secured internet and wireless. There's also a wireless computer printer.

At the Sea Nymph, your day can begin rising to the sight and sound of the ocean. When the coffee is ready, you can sit on the deck and immerse yourself in the refreshing air or stroll on the beach and watch the surfers. At noon, you can walk up town, enjoy lunch at a favorite little restaurant, take in some of the galleries and in the evening dine at one of our fabulous restaurants.

Carmel, the city that Clint Eastwood made famous, offers so much, from Monterey's Aquarium, incredible drives south along Highway 1 and ocean vistas, to some of the best golf courses in the world. The Sea Nymph is more than a beach's a memorable experience that you'll want to revisit and enjoy again. The majority of our tenants are repeat visitors. Don't miss this opportunity to live a dream!

About Doug & Annette

Annette & Doug live in Carmel. Having moved to Carmel full-time from Fresno, CA in 1999, it was the fulfillment of a life dream! Having owned the Sea Nymph since 1988, we enjoyed being able to come over at times when it wasn't rented. These days, we have the opportunity to take care of the Sea Nymph first hand and be sure it is the kind of vacation home that our renters can look forward to having a fabulous and memorable experience, and can't wait to return. The majority of our renters are repeat.

Doug & Annette purchased this house in 1988

Why Doug & Annette chose Carmel By the Sea

The purchase of the Sea Nymph in 1988 was primarily made as an investment with the opportunity to also enjoy everything that Carmel, the ocean and beach offer when we could. As it has always been a vacation rental, we have strived to keep it on the cutting-edge of what people want in a coastal vacation experience. One thing we are very proud of is that Payne Stewart chose to stay at the Sea Nymph during the AT&T Pro-Am the year he was the US Open Champion.

What makes this house unique

Its proximity to the ocean...falling asleep or waking up to the sound of the waves. Its 2 fireplaces and the open floor plan. Plenty of windows and light. The fabulous deck with ocean view and reclining chairs to hang-out in, outdoor dining with table & chairs, 5-burner gas grill, gas heater for those chilly evenings and privacy the fence provides. The 2-car garage with washer & dryer is definitely a plus in Carmel. The Sea Nymph is the perfect beach house that brings sand and sea together with all of the amenities Carmel has to offer.

Perfect Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful Sea Nymph is everything a beach house should be. We have stayed at the Sea Nymph four times over the last four years, and we are eager to return next winter. The photos on this web site truly reflect what you will see, but there are some things a photo won't tell you: the sound of the surf at night, the smell of the sea air, and the warmth of the large sunny deck (even in the winter).

The house is perfectly located right at the beach end of the main street through Carmel. A leisurely stroll will get you anywhere in the village in ten minutes and in ten seconds to the beach!

The light-filled Sea Nymph is artfully furnished and decorated. The house has an exceptionally well-provisioned kitchen (with a new smooth stovetop, oven, and microwave), a large flat-screen TV and good cable and WiFi service, and abundant quality linens.

We share the Sea Nymph with our dog, but there is no evidence that dogs have been in residence. The carpet is shampooed after each tenant. Gardeners come by once a week to keep the garden tidy and the flowers watered. The personable owner takes obvious pride in the house and takes very good care of it. He lives in Carmel and is always available.

Carmel by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at Sea Nymph for 2 fabulous Octobers. October is a perfect month - you can leave the windows open, and hear the sea all night long. We loved having our late afternoon wine and cheese picknics at the beach.

Each year, our daughters visited, and we spent time in Carmel, and also the wine country - just a perfect vacation.
