The entire house was extensively updated during 2011 through 2012, with all new custom limestone counter tops, plumbing fixtures, appliances, and heating system.

All bedrooms have been remodeled and feature new Simmons premium pillow-top mattresses, Egyptian cotton high thread count sheets, artisan wool blankets from MacAuslands Woollen Mills of Prince Edward Island, down comforters, and a variety of down and other types pillows.

The master bedroom has a sliding glass door that opens to the pool area, and a private master bathroom with new tile shower and soaking tub. The second bedroom has a sliding glass door that faces east and opens to the large fenced yard.

The house is heated with a new energy-efficient radiant system, with independent temperature control for each bedroom and for the living room and kitchen. The large living room fireplace has gas logs that provide supplemental warmth and ambience.

Electronic entertainment and communication features include: open wireless broadband throughout the house and poolside areas, DirecTV high definition satellite TV, Sharp HD LED TV, Bose Cinemate sound system for TV and music, BluRay CD/DVD player, and Apple TV.

Taza's location in Carmel Valley is typically above the ocean 'fog line' and occasional fog usually burns off by mid to late morning to give sunny days. Real time weather conditions from the weather station at Taza can be found at Weather Underground by using this link:

About Eric Rey

We live in Berkeley (San Francisco Bay Area) and love Carmel Valley for the scenery, hiking, nearby beaches, food, and wine. One of us is an interior designer, and the other works in research. Taza is named for our dog Tasman, a 10 year old (acts like 3 year old) retriever mix rescue from Illinois. He loves the 1 acre fenced yard, hiking, the beach, and greeting all living creatures.

Eric Rey purchased this house in 2010

Why Eric Rey chose Central Coast

We chose this property because the location in Carmel Valley is above the usual fog line, and because of the great views and wonderful layout of the house and pool. We love the layout and the site - it was obviously custom-designed and built originally in 1956.

It's rumored that the property was a getaway for Hollywood folks - the house and pool layout, with pass-through kitchen bar, is perfect for entertaining or just hanging out.

What makes this house unique

Walking into the pool area from the front door is magical. The round pool is surrounded by Carmel stone walls and magnificent oak trees. The site is perched with expansive views of Carmel Valley and Garzas Canyon. The living room opens to the pool patio, creating a fantastic indoor/outdoor space.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time and stay at your house, as far as we are concerned the house was everything we hoped it would be and more..

When we plan another visit to California I will be sure to send you a email, as we would love to come and stay at your house again.



Thank you again for all your help, and with meeting our requests of a high chair and BBQ set etc.

Superb Property !!

  • 5 of 5

The TAZA house in Carmel Valley was a WOW-EE in every way! We spent a month enjoying its beauty & amenities -- it is of mid-century modern design ( built in 1956) & has been lovingly restored with highest quality fixtures & design elements. The house/pool are positioned with magnificent views towards the mountains - very peaceful & private and its location makes for easy visits to Big Sur, Point Lobos, Carmel, Carmel Valley Village, Monterey, Pacific Grove, with lots of great hiking trails just up the road at Garland Park. We were especially thrilled with the time spent "at home" -- so cozy & comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen, a big TV, a dreamy mattress and a most wonderful gas fireplace! The decor & art was such that wherever you looked there was beauty. Homeowner Eric was warm & welcoming and ever-so-patient with our tech questions. Honestly, we hated to leave (returning to Florida humidity & bears!) and we cannot wait to return!

Stunning, relaxing, impeccably designed - great host communication!

  • 5 of 5

I've traveled all over the world and stayed at many fantastic rentals .. this is easily among the top. A view which can't be beat and an exquisitely clean and open floor plan leaves one with a feeling of calm. I felt safe, indulged and refreshed waking up each day in my spacious bedroom. Cooked a ton and appreciated that everything I needed was there. Town is literally a 10 minute drive to grab wine or groceries and the locals are friendly. My dog loved wandering the property with me & I appreciated having him spoiled too. This home can easily accommodate 7-10ppl I imagine but with just two of us it was serene and private. Host was beyond responsive and caring. A+. I wish it were closer to LA! :)

Beautiful views, comfy beds, stylish decor, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We are checking out this morning and I don't want to go home! Our dogs loved the 1 acre fenced yard, and we loved the pool with gorgeous views. My only complaint is that others have found this place - as it's fully booked until October.

Wonderfully relaxing spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Taza for a family wedding. The house is beautiful, comfortable and well stocked for our family of 6. The house has a good amount of room. The fireplace was welcome on a chilly night. The beds are comfortable, the baths had a good amount of room and we appreciated the bath accessories and the blow dryers. We would stay here again.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

This is the one vacation rental where what we enjoyed most about the vacation was spending time at the house. It really is just perfect. Beautiful house, great kitchen, fabulous outdoor area with pool and a view, private location but close to groceries, hiking, and the coast. Can't wait to return.

The property is about a 15 minute drive from the beaches in Carmel and Monterey, and far enough inland to avoid coastal fog most of the time. Carmel Valley Village is about one mile from the property, and has plenty of great wine-tasting, galleries, and restaurants. In the immediate area there are ample recreational opportunities with miles of great trails for hiking and horseback riding. Multiple golf courses are within 5-7 miles, and Laguna Seca Raceway is 7 miles away.
