About Amy Madrigal

We bought this home in 2008 because we wanted a home away from home in our favorite location. Carmel and the surrounding area has no shortage of activities and with two kids to entertain, we couldn't think of a better place to escape.

Amy Madrigal purchased this house in 2008

Why Amy Madrigal chose Carmel By the Sea

We already had one home in neighboring Pacific Grove, but loved the modern, clean, open feel of this house and couldn't resist buying it. The living area is a great place to hang out, a glass of wine on the back deck is heaven after a long day at the beach, and the three bedrooms suited our family perfectly (heaven forbid the kids have to share a room, right?). =)

Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here the week between Christmas and New Year. We had a wonderful time. Everything was so clean, nice and the house is laid out perfectly for fun and function. Our grandson enjoyed the many toys and games available to us. The master suite and bath are especially spacious. It is a short walk to downtown Carmel and the beach. There is even a park around the corner for the kids. We will definitely be back!!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The owner was really easy to work with and very accommodating. The house was spacious and clean with an open kitchen, eating and living area. The kitchen was also well stocked. The bedrooms and bathrooms are a good size. The location is very convenient with easy access to Hwy 1. We would definitely stay here again! The only downside is a tight driveway access - we had a large SUV which made it a little challenging to get in and out. Otherwise, the place was perfect!

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the house and that everything worked out for you. We'd certainly love to have you come back and visit again!! And BTW, I definitely do agree on the driveway! I drive an Acadia (aka the "mom-Mobile") and there are moments when I'm surprised my giant car fits. =)

Perfect weekend away with girlfriends

  • 5 of 5

We *loved* staying at this beautiful house conveniently located near the center of Carmel! It was clean, cozy, well appointed and beautifully decorated. We were there without kids (Moms weekend away!), but we did notice that the place is also set up for hosting little ones. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a convenient, safe, comfortable base while exploring gorgeous village of Carmel. We would love to come back! PS. Uber service to downtown Carmel is only 5-6 minutes.
