What makes this House unique
The peace and tranquility of this special place are hard to describe. Looking over the canyon and at level with the tree tops offers a very unique perspective and is the perfect place to take in nature. The birds are abundant and their songs fill the air. Nature thrives in our little canyon we enjoy sharing it with Great Horned Owls deer, quail, bobcat, coyote and even the occasional sighting of a mountain lion. On warm days we open the doors and let the sounds, sights and sweet smell of nature in. Our Cocker Spaniel Zeke spends his days playing ball and running in the woods, a dog's paradise.

We spent 2 weeks in the Enchanted Oaks, and although it could be a nice cottage, it lacks some basic things to make it worth the kind of money we spent. The pots and pans are not usable, there are only 2 wine glasses and other basics of the kitchen are not there, or lacking in quality and quantity. The BBQ is broken as is the refridgerator and the deck was too moldy and dirty to use. We think the owners need to take better care of their cottage before renting it
We are sorry these guests were unhappy and wish that they had let us know at some point during their stay. All but one of the pots and pans are new, they are clean and very usable. We did replace two cookie sheets as well as the single pan that had a couple scratches in the bottom. In addition to the three wine glasses there is a plethora of drinking glasses, beer steins and mugs. We have since added three more wine glasses. The stainless refrigerator, like all the appliances, is very clean, fully functional and looks great. We remedied that issue with a squirt of WD40.
The gas grill starter is broken. We provided a long handled lighter for their use, the rest of the grill is fully functional. We just ordered a new gas grill for the summer season so that all future guests will not have to light the grill by hand.
There were many days of heavy rain and wind during their stay. The deck was cleaned on the day they arrived and once in the middle of their stay. Perhaps they mistook yellow, Spring pollen as mold. There is no mold anywhere on the deck as we clean and maintain it regularly.
Enchanted Oaks is not only a lovely, well appointed, one bedroom home with fully stocked kitchen, surrounded by a peaceful forest but it’s also an excellent value. You would be hard pressed to find a vacation rental or hotel in our price range that’s as nice in this area. Please refer to our 57 positive reviews for a balanced description of Enchanted Oaks.
One of my best stays. Property was clean and super quiet. Loved the fire place. I would stay at this property if available
It was so quiet and relaxing. We loved the property.
I would recommend the property. We loved our time there. We hope to come back.
We loved everything except the steep driveway and walkway down to property
We loved everything except the steep driveway and walk way down to the property. Difficult to maneuver for elderly, so unless more mobile It could be a problem.
Beautiful house, great location, friendly owners
This house is just as pictured in the VRBO ad. It looks out onto a small ravine filled with trees that are beautifully lit during sunrise and sunset. Lots of big windows showcase the view. It’s close to everything: Carmel shopping and restaurants and the Big Sur coastal drive. It is very spacious and the gas stove was excellent. We had a small issue with the clothes dryer but the owner remedied it right away. For heating in the winter, it has a gas fireplace and a portable floor heater and they did the job adequately. We highly recommend this property!
Lovely space and very private. Well appointed and great location. Thank you!
