About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-10)

This serenely comfortable home and tranquil setting will melt your cares away. Soak in the hot tub, enjoy the gardens, swim in the pool, or read a book by the fireplace. This is a classic Monterey Post/Adobe style house that has been fully remodeled and exquisitely furnished. There are many inviting outdoor nooks to discover here. Walk to Carmel Valley Village and taste wine at one of the many tasting rooms or dine at a choice of international restaurants.

Perfect for families, personal, group, and executive retreats, or small quiet seminars and workshops.

In this park-like setting, you can hear the sounds of birds and the gentle breeze rippling through the pine trees, see an occasional hawk circling over the property, or revel in watching the pool reflections on the living room ceiling. The back terrace, accessible through French doors from the dining room area, has a table with umbrella and chairs surrounded by a raised terraced garden. Each of the five bedrooms has night tables with reading lamps and pretty bedspreads.

Fully-equipped and very roomy kitchen. Gas cook top, single gas oven, water filter, microwave, full set of utensils and cooking accessories, coffee maker, toaster oven, phone, breakfast nook (not in picture) with pool view, and skylight.

Natural, pond-like full-size swimming pool with solar heat. Pool is swim-able from approximately May through most of October. Hot tub behind bamboo provides serene privacy. Surrounded by pine, maple, willow, and fruit trees full of birds, an occasional deer, and other wildlife.

Cozy living room with fireplace, Tibetan rug, oriental cabinet, book collection, view of pool and garden, writing desk, TV, VCR, cable, CD, tape, and radio.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: We lived in this wonderful home from 1976 until 1986. During that time we fully remodeled this wonderful classic Carmel Valley post adobe home. In 1999 we completely furnished the home and set it up as a vacation rental so we could spend time there ourselves as well as let others enjoy the peace and tranquility it offers. It is our art piece and escape. Everyone who has stayed there loves it and we now have many yearly returning families and groups.

Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley, CA, USA:
Carmel Valley Retreat was the home we lived in for over 10 years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Carmel Valley offers some of the best weather in the world. Over 300 sunny days a year and almost none of the fog that covers Carmel and Monterey all summer long.
