A comfortable and peaceful home.

  • 4 of 5

The owners were very helpful and friendly. The home was very comfortable and in a beautiful setting. The calm atmosphere gave us the opportunity to unwind and enjoy the natural attractions and surroundings of the local area. Easy access to supermarkets etc and all the things you need. Many thanks for a great stay.

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this house!! I would happily stay here again on my next visit to the area. As the other reviewers have mentioned the house is clean, cozy, modern and peaceful, and it's clear that the owners have a background in art and design. The kitchen was also well-equipped. Despite the fact that the house is quiet and secluded, it's also close to shops, restaurants and other amenities--this made it super convenient. We spent most of our days hiking in Big Sur, which is only a short drive away. We also spent one night in the guest house. The guest house is every bit as nice as the main house, but it's smaller. It's really meant for a couple, but there's a fold-out sofa that could be used for a third person in a pinch.

We didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

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.

Total Charmer!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a weekend in this beautiful home. It has been lovingly updated and features interesting furniture, great art, and all the comforts of home. The location is quiet, secluded and surrounded by trees. Everything was immaculate. Jef and Steph were gracious and accommodating hosts. We will definitely return!

We rented the main house ...

  • 5 of 5

We rented the main house and cottage from Jef and Steph for a 3 day weekend with friends coming to California for the first time. We had an amazing time; the house is so peaceful and cozy yet ultra modern and zen. There were 5 of us and we had plenty of space to spread out for alone time or get together in the main house for meals and wine. Excellent location, convenient to Carmel Valley and Carmel-by-the-Sea yet quiet and secluded. Your own little private piece of heaven. We will definitely be going back alone or with our next out of town guests.
