Absolutely perfect Carmel experience!
Joy's property is perfectly located and she was incredible accommodating. The home is spacious and comfortable, fully stocked with everything you could need. We loved enjoying the outdoor patio space for BBQ's in the evenings and walking down to Carmel beach for bonfires at sunset. Stunning place, lovely people, everything we could have hoped for. Thank you Joy! We will most certainly visit again.
We enjoyed a family celebration in this beautiful Carmel Point home! It was configured very well for our needs. Lovely rooms inside and spacious outside gardens. Ideally located with easy access to the beach, Mission trails and Mission Ranch.
Unbelievable Week at a Special Beach home
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!
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!
Amazing location, well- appointed and soooo cozy! Owner was incredibly attentive and responsive. We lovved it and will definitely return.
