It took 2 years and $5,000,000 to recreate this British empire estate worthy of Tommy Bahama. Whether it is the flowering vines on the main residence or the giant ferns shading the cottage/catering center you will wonder if indeed the tropic splendor of 1880's Singapore has come to coastal elegance that is Carmel by the Sea.
Our long time business clients or new friends can stroll the quiet rose gardens or do some entertaining of their own on the the over 2,000 sq. ft. of stone patios. Is it the tropical cabana or the slate roof lines that provide the perfect backdrop to an corporate gathering or a 50th anniversary? Is it a catered dinner or 'smores' at the outdoor fireplace with the kids that gives pause in the lush surroundings to contemplate the blessings of success?
A tiger-stripped stone walkway guides you from the off street parking to the carved glass of the Mahogany front door. As you enter the main residence you are surrounded by the comfortable elegance that at once says 'Wow' and also 'welcome home'. Our upper drive parking accommodates three vehicles easily while the lower drive preferred drop off allows all guests easy access.
The gourmet kitchen featuring a sub-zero refrigerator and Viking 6 burner range presents our guests with their first dilemma! Should I prepare the evenings offering myself? Perhaps free range chicken with local chanterelle mushrooms and glass of 2006 Robert Talbot Pinot?. But then again you're in Carmel home to some of the best restaurants in the world. You take the 10 min. walk to downtown Carmel by the Sea where world class dining awaits!
Throughout the main residence one's expectations are well accommodated. The flicker of wood burning fireplaces is seen in the kitchen and living room, while the library/video room can be shut off for viewing privacy and 'quiet' for the rest of the house. Our 'Boat room' doubles as a game/fitness area while also having a conference option hosting twenty attendees. With over 70% of the residence accessible from the main floor with no steps and preferred drop off via our lower drive all guests are comfortable.
There are 2 suites on the main floor. The 'Queen room' done in shades of cinnamon and coral features a queen bed, private bath and wood burning fireplace. For those whose life experience now exceeds their stair climbing talents, this is a great suite. Across the hall, the Twin room has the flexibility of either 2 twin beds or a single king. Either way the claw foot tub is the perfect spot to end a day at the links of 'Pebble' or shopping on 'Ocean Ave'.
The upstairs suites neither disappoint. Morning is greeted in the 'Birds Nest' with a birds eye view of the Monterey Pines. A king bed, fireplace and Jacuzzi tub make the evenings pleasant as well. The other suite, 'Bridge room' - it literally bridges the 2 halves of the home - is our largest suite with a king bed, gas fireplace, Jacuzzi tub and queen sofa bed. Both suites offer private slate decks overlooking the forested patios, whispering 'more wine and cheese, please'.
Aloha Estate is located off of Ocean Avenue. Due to its location it often escapes the chilly afternoon fog, yet is only a 10 minute walk to downtown. In line with Carmel Valley, the Estate benefits from its warming breezes, allowing one to enjoy a BBQ on its stone patios or a lounge with a good book. Its expansive gardens back to the Carmel Mission trial, a 15 minute stroll away!

Why Victor chose Hatton Fields
Prior to purchasing the property my wife and I had visited Carmel for almost 30 years. Being a real estate developer in N. California and Hawaii, I was 'picky' regarding what we were looking for in a high end house. We started seriously looking 5 years ago, when my wife found this property it had actually been taken off the market. Though it was in need of much updating I loved the location and my wife appreciated the interior 'bones'. With our background of developing in Hawaii we decided to do a rendition of a British empire 'fusion', our version of British estates found throughout Singapore, Hong Kong and the Philippines. 2 years and $5,000,000 later, we hope that we succeeded!
What makes this Estate unique
The 'top' ten experiences of 'Aloha Estate' 1. Pitch dark sky at night and quiet ! 2. Morning coffee on one of the upstairs decks 3. Gourmet cooking while a fire sizzles in the kitchen fireplace 4. A glass of Rombauer Chardonnay any where 5. Soaking in the claw foot tub after a round at Pebble 6. Dinner downtown at Le Bicyclette 7. Basking in the morning sunlight of the Living room 8. Finishing a good book lounging among the gardens 9. A Walk downtown 10. Ending the day with a cup of tea from our extensive tea collection

As I told my friends before they arrived it was "unique". Stayed in the cottage and it smelled old. The toilet moves.
The main house they were not able to use the televisions until the last day as there were no instructions. The outdoors were not in the best of shape. Exterior was dirty and lots of weeds. I guess I expected more for the cost of the home.
Everything was clean inside the home. We chose not to eat or cook which was great.
I think instead of placing signs as to damage they should give more directions on the use of appliances and televisions.
Great value, lasting memories
Very well appointed, welcoming and private. We had 4 couples stay, everyone felt there was enough room for privacy, enough common area for enjoying each others company.
The amenities were great, kitchen, glassware, etc.
Bedrooms were spacious and quiet, common areas were comfortable.
And the location was killer, walk into town in 5 minutes, and get on the highways in the same time if going a distance.
Host was very communicative and helpful.
Highly recommend this home.
Perfect for golf trip
Great place for 4 friends enjoying golf on Monterrey Peninsula. Martin was very helpful and accommodating and the house was very nice.
Beautiful home.Gorgeous furnishings with amazing attention to detail.The beds and bedding were first class.The media room had everything one could need.The owners,Martin and Sue,could not have been kinder or more welcoming (sharing a beautiful selection of wine,cheese and crackers upon our arrival)This is my first experience with Home Away ,VRBO,or any other vacation rental company and it was a Home Run.
Relaxing stay in a beautiful home
We had a wonderful time in Carmel over the past weekend. Once a year a group of us from high school gets together for a weekend away. This year there were 7 of us who stayed at this beautiful home. We started our mornings by walking down to Ocean Avenue for coffee. Our favorite walk was the Scenic Loop walk where we leisurely walked along the beach and admired the amazing homes in Carmel. Each afternoon we enjoyed appetizers and wine in the backyard. What a peaceful setting! Two of our guests loved to cook so they thoroughly enjoyed using the gourmet kitchen indoors as well as the grill outside. Martin, the owner, was extremely responsive and helpful. The home was spotless and the little details were thought of...a bottle of wine when we arrived as well as delicious madeleins and granola bars. We had such a perfect stay and are already talking about returning in the future. I would definitely recommend a stay at this beautiful, peaceful home.
You will be pampered in this large beautifully decorated home, that is a 10 minute walk into downtown Carmel. Access to all of the Carmel sights and eateries couldn't be easier. The owner, Martin will readily provide you a list of his favorite places, and he was spot on! The home will exceed your expectations. TV's and coffee makers in every room. Amazing touches, like bowls of candy and treats everywhere. A very well stocked kitchen, with everything you need to eat meals in, or just socialize is a wonderful plus. Access to all of the local sights is easy, as the main highway will take you to Monterey, 5 minutes in one direction, and Point Lobos, 5 minutes in the other. Highly recommend this for family reunions, as was the case for our group.
Top Attractions: 1. The Refuge - European Spa and Massage 2. Monterey Aquarium 3. Los Lobos State Park and Big Sur
