Charming and Welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this house! It was beautiful and charming. I did not feel at all like I was staying in a rental unit, more like I was in someone's lovely home. The kitchen is fabulous, the back yard gorgeous, the living room welcoming, the bedrooms were very comfortable, and the bathrooms were perfect. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat! Worth every penny.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Just close enough to town to be an easy walk, but still quiet. Everything we needed, and very helpful hosts.

Lovely Carmel by the Sea Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic three-night stay this lovely, cozy, quiet cottage.

Every amenity was thought of, so there was never any need to contact the homeowners.

We will definitely be back!

Thank you, Michael and Jan

Classy and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with our stay at Blue Jay Way! The home is beautifully decorated with even the special touch of fresh lillies in several rooms. It was very comfortable for the needs of two couples on vacation. The living room with its cozy fireplace is particularly inviting. The home is located in a quiet part of town but still walkable to the galleries, shops, and restaurants. The owners were "over-the-top" helpful with many suggestions for restaurants and wine tastings available in Carmel. We were disappointed that it wasn't warm enough for us to fully enjoy their lovely back yard. This home is a terrific value for the price! We will definitely return and recommend it to our friends.

We loved it here!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed including a backyard with a grill. The owners left us with coffee, wine and a super cute and clean place to stay. We definitely would stay here again!

Perfect long weekend in Carmel

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed this 2 bedroom home. The welcome we received was enhanced by wines. The home is completely updated, nice back yard for enjoying the wine the owners left for us. Kitchen fully functional and well stocked. Everything about this location is wonderful. The walk to town is easy, the return is a bit more strenuous heading back uphill.

Good parking and easy access. Enjoyed our time there while we raced at Laguna Seca in the IMSA sports car event.
