'Carmel Tranquility' 2 Beaches a short walk from this Rose Garden home

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

3 Bed / 2 Bath, Sleeping & Dining for 8. Beaches 5mins & 8mins walk

Perfect peaceful family getaway or reunion location. Sit and enjoy the gardens while listening to the waves crash on the nearby Carmel Beach. Our home is a 1750 sqft 3bed / 2bath beach-home with soaring vaulted ceilings and wall to wall LIGHT! It's tastefully appointed to help you immerse yourself in a California beach experience.

There's lots of living, cooking and 'kids play' space inside and outside the home. There's comfortable dining and sitting space for 8 in the living room, the dining room and on the back patio. We have 4 flat screen TVs, all equipped with DirecTV and Netflix. There is a 3D TV with 9 viewing glasses, a3D DVD player and a VCR and a small video library including a few 3D movies! , so there's plenty of options.

Broadband Wifi reaches all areas of the house. The sound system is a professional 6-speaker discrete in-ceiling system. Use our CD's or bring your own iPod music.

If it's a good book, you prefer, we have a small library tastefully hidden away next to the living room fireplace. The gas fireplace is controlled electronically with a remote for convenience and safety.

When it comes to relaxing after your tranquil Carmel day, you can further indulge yourself in our memory foam mattresses in every bedroom.

In the morning, take your time to enjoy a fresh coffee drawing in the fresh scented morning air in our extensive flower gardens to the front and back of the house. We have many roses, magnolia, lemon, orange, mandarin, Japanese maple, Mexican sage, agapanthus and many more. In short, the typical Carmel paradise. Don't be surprised to be sharing it with hummingbirds, squirrels and blue jays.

The young kids will love the double bunk bed room, with their own special secret bonus room filled with goodies!

It's an ideal location for families with easy access to both Carmel beaches (5 blocks away). The Mission Ranch Hotel and Restaurant (owned by Clint Eastwood) is a fantastic restaurant to have 200 yards from the front door. It has a Piano Bar as well as outdoor seating to watch the sunsets and the sheep !The Sunday Brunch is highly recommended ! They operate a first come first served system. So you have to arrive and join their wait list. The electronic buzzer they give you to call you for your table works at our home. So, wander down, make your booking, pick up the tag, and have a glass of wine at home while waiting. This gives some bonus time for those who have settled into the Carmel pace and need a little longer to get ready ;-)

Less than a mile away is the shopping and restaurants of 'Carmel by the Sea'. It's also a pleasant 20mins stroll down Scenic Drive overlooking the beach. Nearby is Point Lobos State Reserve. It's beaches are so beautiful several movie beach scenes have been filmed there.

The famous Carmel Mission, and Mission Trail Park are also about half a mile walk. Beautiful beaches and coastal paths extend for 3 miles past Carmel River Valley Beach towards Point Lobos.

About The Owner

We live in the Bay Area and have fallen, completely and utterly in love with Carmel. We love to visit our home there as often as possible. Come and see why !!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Carmel Point

In a word, location ! Our home is so close to the 2 beautiful carmel beaches. Imagine having to decide which one to walk to !!

For dinner the choice is even more difficult. A gentle 200 yards to the ex-mayor's mission ranch hotel & restaurant, or a short trip to ocean avenue for carmel's very best restaurants. Our favorite there is Dametra, but Mission Ranch is so relaxing with its Piano Bar and outside seating watching the sunset and the sheep !

What makes this house unique

Our home can sleep 8 comfortably. It's 1750 sq ft. You can make dining arrangements for 8 indoors or outdoors, in the back yard ! The living room also seats 8 for movie watching. All bedrooms have slumber-guarantee memory foam mattresses!

We have 4 flat screen TV's throughout the home with DirecTV, Netflix, 3D movies and DVD's.

This beautiful Carmel house was the perfect place to have our family reunion. We really enjoyed the light, bright, and modern feel of the home, the architecture allowing natural light in every room. Amenities such as the extra long kitchen table, the gas fireplace and comfortable sofas, as well as outdoor patio and BBQ, were favorites. The beds were super comfortable! The location was convenient for daily beach walks, downtown Carmel restaurants, as well as the Carmel Mission Ranch. Thank you again for a great stay!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for us (2 couples traveling together). The beds were very comfortable, the neighborhood is very quiet. There is a 3rd bedroom with an attached playroom that would be great for kids. The location was awesome and we enjoyed having our "own" beach within walking distance. We would stay here again.

Beautiful Home. Great Location. Everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

I brought my elderly parents up to see my daughter graduate at CSUMB. They were comfortable and had everything they needed. There is a fabulous kids play room, and if we brought little ones they would have really been spoiled by the playroom. The property is was the perfect place for her graduation photos. The walk to the river and beach was so close I felt like the beach was in our backyard. I would definitely come back. The welcoming staff was very helpful and explained everything we needed to know. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely property.

Car: recommended

Point Lobos State Park is about 3 miles away and its possible to walk there from the house if you walk roadside for about 400 yards.

The town of Carmel has many world class restaurants, art galleries and boutiques. We and our property manager will be happy to give you our recommendations.

Further afield are the world famous golf courses and Monterrey bay aquarium, Cannery row and whale watching. Our property manager can secure discounted tickets for Monterrey bay aquarium.

Golf and nature walks are plentiful and you are just north of the world famous Big Sur Highway 1 ! It's one of those 'must do's', to drive this road to Santa Barbara or Hearst castle with the top down!
