Charming Carmel Point home, one and a half blocks from Rio Beach and a short walk to Carmel's main beach. This house welcomes you with beautiful gardens as you walk up the front path. You pause awhile on the veranda before stepping into the fully furnished house. A Monterey colonial with recently refinished hardwood floors and spanish tile pavers in the kitchen, rough cut beams in the living and dining rooms, and a pleasing ambiance throughout. The country kitchen invites you to linger over breakfast. The bedrooms are good size. The master bedroom has a skylight and is surrounded by trees, and from the bathroom has a view over the wetlands and up the Carmel Valley.

This is a family vacation home loaded with books and games, yet organized for formal dining and entertaining. There is a brick patio with a BBQ and large enclosed back yard, towering Monterey Cypress trees, and lovely gardens. You can relax with a book in the garden, or in front of the open fire, walk to the beach, or enjoy the numerous activities in the Carmel/Monterey area.

There are beach chairs, umbrellas blankets and toys and a wagon to get the gear to the beach.

Unbelievable Week at a Special Beach home

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful vacation in Carmel by the Sea. This home is about two blocks walking distance from one of the best beaches in Carmel ( Carmel River Beach) where the River lagoons meet the sea. We have two small kids age 5 and age 9. The house is perfect for children; mostly all one level with a beautiful garden in the back and the front. There are gorgeous flowers everywhere and hummingbirds everywhere you look. We spent every morning walking along scenic drive and then afternoons spent in the backyard enjoying the barbecue followed by monopoly and other assorted games that are at the home. The house is also walking distance to the Mission Inn where we spent a few nights at the piano bar and watched the sunset over cocktails. The home is just beautiful and we loved it so much we booked it for next year. We were there over the 4th of July week so the town was busy but this area of town was so peaceful. This home is a gem and Joy was wonderful to work with.

We brought our daughter, her husband and two boys, 6 and 3. We chose this home because our son has a dog and we wanted his dog to be included in our family vacation. Pet friendly was a huge consideration, plus we wanted everyone to have their own space.

This home definitely didn't disappoint. The floor plan couldn't have been better for our family. One wing downstairs perfectly suited our daughter and her family and the other downstairs wing was perfect for our son and his dog (he, unfortunately, couldn't make the trip in the end, though). The master was upstairs and felt roomy, private and provided a quiet place for a wonderful nap after long walks and beach time.

The amenities of this house were great, too. A red wagon for transporting kids, towels, etc to the beach was used every day. We even used it to haul kids with us to walk into town. The walk to the beach is just a few yards, which made enjoying sunsets pretty darn easy. The walk to Mission Ranch for a glass of wine, dinner, or the piano bar was made several times.

Kitchen is fully stocked with great appliances and pretty much anything and everything you could need. I love keeping up with laundry and those appliances were perfect as well.

We highly recommend this home for a family vacation.

Truly a Charmer!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful Carmel home for an entire week this past February. Our search had been very specific, based on location, bedrooms, good kitchen and allowing us to take our Lucy dog - voila - we found our perfect home away in this Carmel Point Charmer! The home is very cozy, well appointed with excellent beds and linens, a bright, cheerful 'cook's' kitchen and lovely, spacious dining room, overlooking a glorious garden. The gardens, both front and back are just a treat, beautifully planted and maintained, a joy to behold! A short walk to the splendid River Beach made it all even more perfect.

The homeowner's caring touch was everywhere, we felt quite at home! Thank you, we shall return!

Slice of Heaven on Carmel Point

  • 5 of 5

We love renting this home as it is dog friendly and walking distance to different beaches. Also, it is so charming and we just feel right at home staying in it. Plenty of seating in living room for guests too. The past 7-8 years we have rented it for the month of September. We also have come for weekly stays and last Christmas spent the week here. We love to BBQ in the back yard and enjoy the lovely garden with huge succulents! It is in walking distance to Mission Ranch and also a close car drive to Safeway in the Crossroads shopping center. You can walk up to town too if so inclined and take in all the cute cottage gardens along the way! The owners are very accommodating in having crib, high chair (we did not need) and beach chairs, which we did use. They have plenty of china in hutch in dining room and we have had 8 at table but you probably could fit more. Everything you need is provided in the kitchen (lots of wine & drinking glasses too for guests) and hall closet has plenty of towels too. We have always felt very at home here and hate to leave. Our guests love it just as much and golf in this area is tops! My husband and I highly recommend this vacation rental and cannot say enough good things about this lovely house so appropriately named Carmel Point Charmer!
