About Karen Hoffman
We love the Central Coast, a special place we call Paradise. In 2003 we bought a hilltop property in upper Carmel Valley and now enjoy magnificent mountain views and serenity. We are always inspired by the natural surroundings of the beautiful Santa Lucia Mountains. We enjoy entertaining with our friends, family and grandchildren. From every visitor's perspective, our little corner of the world beckons vacationers to return again and again.
Karen Hoffman purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2003
Why Karen Hoffman chose Carmel Valley
We fell in love with Cachagua (Upper Carmel Valley), which reminds us of Tuscany. We love the quiet solitude and 360 degree mountain views from our hilltop vineyard. For city people who want sun and country, this is the place!

Fabulous property. However, it is about 45 minutes from Carmel so we ended up modifying our plans to avoid a lot of driving.
Stunning views. Great place for family gathering. Karen was very responsive when we reached out about few minor issues.
Beautiful views, wonderful cozy common space
A compact and well-designed house. Unlike many vacation homes, the downstairs is designed so that you can hang out, play board games or do puzzles, watch TV, and cook all in the same place, without feeling too crowded, but without feeling disconnected from the rest of your group. Or you can get a little personal space by enjoying a coffee and a book, looking over the hills. Karen, the owner, was responsive and delightful to talk to. This place is a keeper.
Thank you very much for the lovely review. Please rerun
Stunning Mountain Views
Absolutely stunning 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains! The house was spacious with plenty of windows which enhances the view. It was Interesting to have an actual vineyard on lthe property. The bottle of wine from the vineyard was excellent! This is a great getaway location for a relaxing time.
Great, peaceful place! It was a little too far from downtown Carmel and Monterey, but if you are just looking to chill and enjoy the peace and quiet, this is the place.
This is a beautiful property! Admittedly, it is a little removed from sightseeing, but once there, I did not wish to leave. It was perfect for relaxing and spending time with the family. The kids, 11 and 12, loved the pool and were very contented to spend time playing games and enjoying bocce ball, horse shoes, and many of the things available to them. Karen was an exceptional host, providing immediate response to any questions we had and recommended a vet in Carmel Valley where we day cared our puppy the one day we left for the aquarium and lunch. Thank you, Karen for a wonderful time.
Loved it so much. We hope to be back!!
