About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

This mid-century home is conveniently located in the Golden Rectangle two blocks from the heart of downtown Carmel, walking distance to the myriad of restaurants, galleries, shops, the beach, tennis, walking trails, Sunset Plaza and the Mission. And, as one of our guest wrote; 'It's a wonderful home to walk back to - spacious, clean and well-maintained and beautifully decorated. It's the perfect place in a perfect town for a perfectly relaxing and enjoyable vacation." (Please see other guest reviews).

This fantastic,comfortable, two-level home has three nicely sized and decorated bedrooms and a separate office space with wireless hook up. There is a gas fireplace on each floor, one in the bedroom and one in the living room, along with a deck on each floor. The dining table seats six to eight, plus there is a second 'breakfast nook' in cheerful kitchen looking out into the beautiful trees and skyline.

All of the windows on the backside of the house look out into a sea of trees. There is parking for two cars on the driveway. You are sure to find this very pleasant home a great way to spend time seeing one of the most beautiful areas in the world. And, you won't feel as though you are in someone else's home as there is not a lot of clutter and personal items, but in your own space, which is why guests have been returning year after year for the past 15+ years.

We look forward to having you stay at the The House by the Sea. (Minimum stay requirements).

About Jill

There is no prettier, scenic place in the world that I have seen thus far, and there is so much to do! It is a place that can feed the soul of the artist, hiker, golfer, nature lover, biker, foodie or someone who enjoys looking at one of the most spectacular coastlines in the world. We have many fond memories of past gatherings and events and look forward to many more. Please enjoy.

Jill purchased this house in 1996

Why Jill chose Southeast Carmel

I love this house. It is nicely located in what is known as the golden triangle on a quaint, tree lined street only two blocks to the start of all the restaurants, shops and galleries of Carmel-By-The-Sea, a short distance to the beach, a nice walking trail down the street and an outdoor theatre only a few blocks away. This mid-century design home has high ceilings and doorways, and feels spacious. We were attracted to the fact that the second and third bedrooms were downstairs and that there were two decks.

What makes this house unique

Take advantage of all the Carmel has to offer: walking, shopping, tennis, golf, hiking, fabulous dining, art, theatre, interesting lectures, concerts, going to the beach and much, much more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home is so lovely and in such a great location to explore all that Carmel has to offer. Just a short walk into town, we made numerous trips to the fantastic restaurants, galleries and shops. Our walks down to the beach and meandering through the neighborhood to view all the unique, creative homes and landscapes always had us spotting something new and interesting. The nature trail nearby that took us to the Mission was so nice to have so close. A memorable vacation - thank you, Julie

Treehouse by the Sea is a great place to spend extended time. We enjoyed the comfort and decor of the home and its closeness to most all of the Carmel attractions---especially to the shuttles going to and from the AT&T Pro Am Golf Tournament, a 5 minute walk. The home is clean, well maintained and equipped and comfortable. We had a great month!!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Can't beat the location. Walking distance to anything on ocean ave. We enjoyed our stay. It was pretty clean. If you have small children, this is not the rental for you.

Lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in Treehouse by the Sea over the holiday period. The house is on a quiet street but a very quick and easy walk into the centre of town. The house itself is spacious and beautifully furnished, with all the amenities you could ask for, including wifi. A great place for both adults and children, one of the best rentals I've seen in the Carmel area.

Perfect Home for our family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four have been here at least 4 times, enjoying every visit! The home has almost everything you need. This past trip we brought my sister-in-law. She loved the fact that she had her own room with a fireplace! We have always felt at home. The convenient location allowed us to walk to shops, restaurants, post office, and the beach. It is challenging walking back home because it's up hill, but at least you get some exercise. The weather was perfect for us! We spent time in Monterey (Aquarium is awesome), Moss Landing (to view otters really close up), Big Sur (gorgeous views - Nepenthe, excellent views and restaurant - Phoenix, shop next to Nepenthe-awesome), Pfeiffer Beach (purple sand & hole in rock) & Point Lobos (more gorgeous scenery)! The house was a perfect distance away to visit all locations. Will return again some time.
