About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + 1 Convertible bed, 1 Bath

Welcome to a unique home, close to town, the beach & Pebble Beach17 Mile Dr. , yet far from the maddening crowds... Perched up in Carmel Woods, north of Pescadero Canyon, a fantastic stroll to town and beach!

A special property in a quiet area north of the village of Carmel, 10 minutes walking to town, the white sand beach at the foot of Ocean Ave., or the Carmel gate for access to Pebble Beach & 17 Mile Dr.

Walk to AT&T Golf Tournament or the Concours D' Elegance, yet remain quiet, serene & tucked away when you return after a day of shopping, sightseeing or dining.

During the holidays enjoy the beautiful Christmas lights in town as you stroll home or the serenity of a quiet cool home in summer while the rest of Carmel-by-the-Sea is buzzing.

Each room is on a different floor, with the kitchen and living room with fireplace on the lower level, bathroom in between and the bedroom on the top floor.

Although the house indicates that it sleeps 4, it would be most comfortable for a maximum of 3 adults. The house is dangerous for small walking children & we do not allow children under 12.

Depending on their size parents should consider the very steep stairs, interior & exterior drop-offs, uncovered pond & unfenced yard.

Non-walking infants O.K. All families with children must disclose their ages at the time of booking & will be required to sign a release.

High speed wi-fi throughout. The kitchen with high end appliances & 6 foot cast iron tub for two in the bathroom round out a perfect staycay experience!

Access to the house is from both the upper and lower streets, so there is ample parking as well as covered parking for one car. The property sits perched above beautiful Pescadero Canyon which is filled with enormous redwood and pine trees that greet you upon entering the upper floor bedroom.

At night you can see the moon and stars twinkle through the trees while you lay in bed ~ magical!

Cozy, romantic and serene is the best way to describe it!

What makes this house unique

The special thing about the Carmel Treehouse is its proximity to the village, beach and 17 Mile Dr., yet still being far from crowds during high season. Being on a 'not a through street' stops traffic from coming through & creates a very peaceful setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Redwoods... A lamp lit tiered garden, with a private deck, a little pond and ample parking. It is private, quiet, and built around its inhabitants. Our hosts had left us a bottle of wine etc. There is an open hearth fire... The town, north of Ventana national park is without question one of the more beautiful we've ever seen. The town has un-numbered houses and a bit difficult to find, but the difficulty only adds to the sense of privacy and quiet. We would certainly return there.

Each time we stay in the Treehouse we relax and rejuvenate more deeply. Watching the sunset on the ocean through the bedroom window and reading in the great room by the fire allow us to relax our bodies, minds and spirits. Walks on the beach and a visit to the Inn at Spanish Bay to listen to the bagpipe player while sipping wine and enjoying a spectacular sunset on the Pacific round out a perfect visit.

Cheers to our gracious hosts, M&M.

I keep returning here, the owners are great and the relaxation level is high at the treehouse.

This location is fine for walking around town and near the gate to Pebble and the golf courses. Drop your bag at the upper level and then drive around to the garage. The stairs enhance the experience. Enjoy.

A true treehouse

  • 4 of 5

The reason I gave this rental 4 stars is that the living room sofa and chair are very uncomfortable. Otherwise and if you've got good knees and legs (LOTS of stairs), this place is very cute

Cozy Home in Carmel

  • 5 of 5

Carmel Treehouse is a cozy comfortable home for two in beautiful Carmel. Very well appointed with everything you could need. The welcome gifts were very appreciated. It is a short walk to town and to the beach. The 17 Mile Dive entrance is a mile away. All was great.
