About The Owner

This Property has been in our family for over 40 years. You'll enjoy the same amazing property as our family home with complete privacy in our lovely detached guest house. We feel so blessed to be able to raise our two daughters in this incredible place and look forward to sharing it with you.

The Owner purchased this house in 1972

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 loved everything except the steep driveway and walkway down to property

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

3rd time to Enchanted Oaks - it's magical!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time to Enchanted Oaks and we love it. The rental is exactly as described and impeccably clean. Very close to grocery stores, shopping, gas, restaurants and of course the village of Carmel. The location cannot be beat. On this trip we hiked Point Lobos, had sunset dinners on Carmel bay and did a water excursion at Moss Landing....saw sea otters with their babies!!! Very special. Highly recommend this rental.....furnishings are stylish and comfortable, shower water pressure is good, bed and bedding very relaxing, kitchen has all utensils you really need. It is like home away from home.

The perfect location and charming cottage home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week in September for our 7 year anniversary. It was gorgeous inside and out and truly made you feel like you were staying in a tree house. We even had a squirrel visit us daily out on the balcony :) It is only minutes to the villages of Carmel and a short drive to Monterey. We took day trips to San Francisco and down to the Big Sur area as well. Being from Phoenix, AZ I stayed chilly the entire time so the fireplace was a nice and cozy surprise. There are plenty of extra blankets in case you are cold natured like me. In fact, this cottage is equipped with pretty much anything you would need so it felt like I was at home. Yes, the drive way is steep but my husband had no issues getting a Chevy Tahoe down it and there was enough room to back up once you get to the bottom. The owner is very nice and was there to welcome us but gave us our privacy during the stay. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend this rental.
