Spacious, quiet, and romantic pool house cottage with the feel of a cabin on the sunny side of Carmel Valley Village. 13' x 18' master bedroom and large knotty pine living room each open up to your own private pool and patio area. In addition to the 625 SF of interior space, there is a very relaxing 170 SF of shady and fully furnished outdoor living. A covered bar overlooks the pool-attached hot tub. Everything just mentioned is behind a 6' - 7' fence and is exclusively for the current guests during their stay. With no interference from city lights, the brilliance of the stars is truly remarkable. Restaurants, wine tasting, and shops abound within walking distance (less than a mile) of the property. Carmel by the Sea, Pebble Beach, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Laguna Seca Raceway are all within a 15 to 20 minute drive . Big Sur is just beyond at 45 minutes. (2) flat-screen TV's, WIFI, and a bluetooth sound system keep you connected during your stay. Parking is on flat pavement; protected and safe within 20' of the gate to your relaxing time in Carmel Valley Village.
*** It may be overstating the obvious, but our neighborhood has all the normal neighborhood noises that one might expect - lawn mowers, blowers, an occasional dog bark, other families entertaining and enjoying their properties, etc. As many of our reviews have stated, the overall experience is very quiet, peaceful, and relaxing, but we are not an isolated property with an absence of real life noises. ***

The pool house was wonderful. Comfy bed, fuzzy robes, private beautiful pool and hot tub.
The stay was great. Gary was friendly and helpful but gave us privacy once we were checked in. The accommodations were great. Fuzzy robes, comfy bed, fully stocked kitchen, bathrobes, extra towels. It felt like home - only nicer.
Nice and clean pool house. Very peaceful and cozy accommodations.
I would highly recommend the house to anyone staying in the Monterrey/Carmel area!
A perfect relaxation retreat.
This was a perfect retreat for my husband and I to get some time together away from the kids and our busy lives.
Every detail in this private little gem has been carefully considered and provided for, inside and out. The pool house is very well appointed and impeccably clean with a large bedroom, cozy living room, full kitchen, and bath. There are plenty of blankets, towels, terry bathrobes, dishes, and kitchen gadgets, as well as books, games, movies, TVs, and audio for entertainment if so desired. The outside pool area is especially delightful. Fencing and landscaping provide complete privacy while still allowing for views of mountains, trees, and sky. And the owners (Gary and Cathy), are very nice and respectful of that privacy. There are plenty of spots to lounge, a table for dining and a gas BBQ. The pool is comfortably heated and the hot tub also heats up incredibly fast. The trickling water sound of a little fountain along the fence makes you feel like you are at a spa. Even the sun seems to move perfectly across the pool area providing sun or shade as desired.
If you want to venture out, within a 10-minute walk (or 5 min. drive), there are lovely restaurants, shops, wine tasting and galleries which we really enjoyed our first night there. There are also guides provided in the poolhouse to the multitude of activities and nature in the general area, some of which we also enjoyed the next day. But this little gem of a place had such a cozy comfortable setting, that we opted to stay in and BBQ our second night, so we could enjoy the pool area (with its beautiful lighting) some more. It was so relaxing! Our only regret was that we couldn't stay there longer. But we would definitely go back again. Highly recommended!
Fabulous and private retreat!
Gary and Cathy are wonderful hosts! They made sure we had what we needed and then let us relax and Enjoy. The house and grounds are as charming as the photos! And the float toys for the pool were an unexpected delight! Thank you!!
This layout was absolutely awesome. The pool house is a place you visit twice.
My wife and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary here and it was exactly what we were looking for. We spent our time out by the coast, in town and of coarse a full day at the pool house. The property is a little slice of paradise, Gary and Cathy we super nice people. The Pool house has all the information you could need for your upcoming stay. Looking forward to returning to the pool house in the future. Highly recommend a visit.
We couldn’t have been more pleased with our decision to stay here, and in fact, altered our plans so we could spend a little more time in the fabulous outdoor space! Gary and Cathy were GREAT hosts and the pool house was the perfect set-up for us, with plenty of room and a wonderfully comfortable bed; it's far more than a "pool house", as it is set up and appointed as a very nice one-bedroom apartment. PERFECT location for getting to anywhere in the area. If we get a chance to come back to the Monterey/Carmel/Big Sur area, this will be the place we stay!
Carmel Valley Village is an unincorporated rural area with a mile long 'downtown' featuring wine tasting, restaurants, and shops. It is 12 miles from Highway One. The pool house is detached and fully enclosed. It is adjacent to the owner occupied main house. The property is on a residential street made up of 1 to 3 acre parcels. It is an easy walk to the Village.
