About the property

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 was lovely. We enjoyed every minute. Weather was amazing, wine tasting, and cute restaurants in walking distance. So charming in the village. Gary and Cathy were great hosts and so knowledgeable of the area

Fantastic. Absolutely fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, wonderful place. Gary and Cathy are available if you need them but did not obtuse on our stay once. The 'pool house' as it is referred to is the size of a decent one bed apartment and in our opinion the pictures do not do it justice. It is cosy, quiet, peaceful and very well equipt. Carmel Valley has some lovely places to eat and drink and we would HIGHLY recommend staying here. It is easily worth the money. Perfect place to relax and recharge the batteries. We loved it. Thank you. Lee and Lily Waddingham

Amazing place!

We loved how private the pool and hot tub were. Would have rated 5 stars if there were laundry.

Owner's Response: Mildly amused by getting dinged (1) star for the lack of an amenity that is clearly not offered. Glad that you enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Thank you for your visit!

Loved this beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a weekend while watching races at Laguna Seca. Everything was amazing. Gary was very responsive and friendly during the booking process and flexible with check-in times. He and Cathy both greeted us and showed us around, then gave us privacy the rest​ of our stay. Our favorite part was the pool and yard area, which was beautiful, peaceful, and private. The heated pool and hot tub were perfect. Since there was no one checking in the afternoon we were leaving, they generously allowed a late check-out. Thanks, Gary and Cathy!!

So nice, we stayed there twice!!

So is it fair to write two reviews about the same place?

I say the answer is yes. We had great memories of the Pool House when we decided to go back for my birthday over the Memorial Day week-end. And everything we remembered was true. The hosts could not have been nicer. When we arrived, they gave me a high-end bottle of wine for my birthday. Their place is spotless. It's a wonderful location. It's got everything you need.

I've been going through some difficulties in my life and this vacation allowed me to completely let them go. Overall, we can't say enough good things about the Pool House. We will definitely be going back.
