About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Sunswept-by-the-Sea lies in the exclusive Golden Rectangle of Carmel-by-the-Sea where houses are named rather than numbered. Built in 1980 by the Tanous Brothers, and renovated in 2006, it sits on a quiet, tree shaded, hilltop street, just four blocks from the beach, three blocks from the galleries and shops of Ocean Ave. and four blocks from the 10th hole of the Pebble Beach golf course.

Tastefully decorated with glowing oak hardwood floors and ocean blue carpets, our light and airy cottage opens to two private garden atriums that light up each room through French doors and windows. Relax in the comfortable living room with its warming gas fireplace and high white-washed A-frame ceilings.

The bright galley kitchen, tiled in Delft blue, faces the front garden with birds and squirrels playing among the flowers. It is furnished with stainless steel appliances and just about everything needed to cook and serve a gourmet meal.

Views of a lovely fern garden and atrium frame the master bedroom with its comfortable king-sized Temperpedic mattress, dressing room and bathroom. A lovely king-sized bed fills the guest bedroom, which has easy access to its own bathroom with shower.

The attached garage, with electric door, protects your car from pine sap and weather. Beach towels and chairs are available in the garage for those beach days when blue skies and bright sunshine beckon. A propane BBQ and small patio table and chairs offer a comfortable spot for relaxing in the large atrium. An inviting bench and table in the front yard is the perfect place to enjoy an evening drink and listen to the sounds of the sea below.

Our favorite vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to Carmel by the Sea for many years and have been coming to Sunswept for the past 3 years. We absolutely LOVE this home and highly recommend it. The location is ideal, being close to town and the beach. We love being able to hear the waves from the house. The house is very comfortable with everything you could need and more. Thank you to Joyce and Pete for allowing us to enjoy vacationing here! When we leave after our trips we are immediately planning our return.

Perfect place to enjoy Carmel Beach and Town!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sun Swept by the Sea in Carmel. The home had everything we were looking for to re-charge our batteries-- quiet neighborhood, walking distance to beautiful white sand beach and easy walk to restauants, galleries, wine tasting shops, and stores. The kitchen and grill offered everything we needed for cooking great meals of the local fresh fish and produce.

One of the wonderful things about this house is how it wraps around the outdoor atriums. The two atriums as well as front flower garden are perfect for relaxing and enjoying a glass of wine and a chat or a good book.

We found Sunswept to be even better than the photos, very clean, and well appointed. The delightful owners have thought of every detail to make your stay confortable. The owners were very responsive both by phone and email and were accessible for every question. We hope to return!

Coming here for 5 years!

  • 5 of 5

My husband I have been coming to Carmel for 6 weeks at a time for past 6 years. The last 5 have been spent at Sunswept. The location is ideal, close to both town and the beach. Great spot for walkers, especially those who like hills!

The house is as described and well equipped and the owners are a delight.

While here we often go to the Sunday brunch at the Mission Ranch, Clint Eastwood's lodge and restaurant.
