Peaceful and Relaxing

The "Tuckaway" exceeded our expectations! Everything we needed for a relaxing and peaceful get-away. Well-furnished, tastefully appointed unit with wonderful views from a spacious and private patio deck. We'll be back again!!

Enjoyed our stay at Tuckaway!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our trip to Carmel By The Sea- we spent a week at Tuckaway. Charming little guest accommodation with a patio that we thoroughly treasured.

Bill (the owner) is very helpful and built a wonderful fire in the firepit the 2nd night we were there. That was a treat! Not always a possibility; if it's breezy, too dangerous to do because of the drought they have been experiencing. Anyway,

Bill is very respectful of your privacy; we never saw him again.

Some true positives about Tuckaway: the bed sleeps like a dream, there is a washer/dryer in unit (which I totally loved having), the decor is charming and, of course, you will LOVE the patio! A few things that were a bit "surprising" but we dealt with is Tuckaway is a bit smaller than it looks online and it does NOT have a full size refrigerator (so purchasing alot of groceries that need to be kept cold is not an option) and the freezer doesn't freeze anything so nothing can be kept in it, including ice. We stopped at the convenience store every day for a large cup of ice before returning to Tuckaway for happy hour.

Some places to see when staying in this area- drive down to Big Sur (beautiful coastline), tour Hearst Castle (very interesting), drive up to San Francisco for the day and purchase tkts. for Hop On/Hop Off bus tour (great way to see the city and Golden Gate Bridge) and take a ride on a cable car (loved it), drive to Monterey and walk around Cannery Row (lots of stores and the Monterey Bay Aquarium is a must-see) and the Wharf. And, drive along the beach down in Carmel By The Sea; it is a very beautiful view and the homes along the street are breathtaking! Some great restaurants are to be found in this quaint village, whether you venture uptown or in the outlying area. We enjoyed exploring the area each day and then returning to Tuckaway for a relaxing evening. Thank you, Bill, for your hospitality!

We stayed at the studio apartment. It had everything we needed. Bill thinks of everything. It has a lovely view. Wonderful patio with a fire pit. It's a simple drive to downtown Carmel and the beach.

Tuckaway, a hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome find for my husband and I who spent 3 nights in Carmel. The unit was just the right size for two people, clean and nicely decorated. We had everything we needed, including fresh coffee beans! Bill was an excellent host and was available when we had questions about the area, but gave us the space and privacy that we needed. Highly recommend if you are in Carmel!

Perfect for our short trip

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Tuckaway was exactly what we were looking for. The outdoor area of the property is gorgeous and landscaping is beautiful. The view is great and it's super private. The unit is exactly as it looks in the pictures. It is cozy and very well equipped. We ate out mostly, but the kitchen was more than adequate for breakfast and snacks. We also had a July 4th BBQ. Excellent grill- small stove works great. Kitchen has everything you need to cook a simple meal. Overall, this rental is comfortable and quiet. It's a plus that it's pet-friendly, our Pugs were very happy and loved the yard. It is also a really nice neighbor for walking and running. Carmel-by-the-Sea is a short walk through a wooded park. Carmel itself is awesome. Great restaurants, lots of wine tasting, tons of natural beauty. The host, Bill wasn't home, but was very helpful via phone/text. Big plus for us and our dogs NO FIREWORKS in Carmel. We will be back for sure.
