Simply magnificent! Love the English flare!

  • 5 of 5

We would love to return to this charming home! It was so easy to get to downtown Carmel, the beaches and to a wedding at Holman Ranch.

This home made us feel at home. The gardens are so beautiful and relaxing.

We had a perfect stay!

Just like being at home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was not only beautiful it was comfortable. If it had a hot tub in the back yard we'd never leave!!! :-) The location is perfect. It's in a very sweet neighborhood. Ms. Katee was a lovely hostess and answered all of my questions. Thank you for such lovely week.

A Carmel delight! Beutifully decorated, wonderful and comfortable - met every need and more.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful experience at this Carmel charmer. Big country kitchen, comfortable and welcoming atmosphere, beautifully decorated. Keurig and french press were a plus for morning coffee. Beds were extremely comfortable and more luxurious than any hotel. Great flat screen TV's and wi-fi if that's your thing. Short walk to the Mission and Mission Ranch. Convenient shopping within walking distance for groceries, pharmacy, and other needs yet set in a quiet and private neighborhood. Spacious (by CA standards) and private backyard with lovely landscape and furniture. 5 minute drive to Point Lobos and even less to Carmel-by-the-Sea.

We loved our visit to Carmel and were so happy to have a welcoming retreat at the end of each day and a lovely place to spend Thanksgiving morning.

Family weekend

  • 4 of 5

Pros - Owner, Katee Waller, began our experience by being quick and easy to communicate with. It's not always easy to find a place to stay over a holiday weekend for 2 nights. Most locations have a 3 day plus minimum stay. The location is close to everything both walkable and a quick drive to downtown in a quiet and mature neighborhood. We utilized all three bedrooms, the air matress and the couch. The beds and linens were all very comfortable as was the couch. Plenty of pillows and blankets. The kitchen is well equipped with everything that you need, including a help yourself to what's in the fridge if need be. It was nice to have a Keurig for coffee in the morning. The backyard was perfect for playing corn holes and neatly manicured. There was a fire pit and barbecue available; however we did not utilize it.

Cons - square footage of home smaller than 2000 sq. ft

Overall - a great place to stay, especially for a family.

Thank you for a great weekend

Loved this VRBO rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have never stayed in a VRBO in Carmel-by-the-Sea, but now that we have, we will definitely do it again. This cute home was perfect for the two of us although it had three bedrooms, two of which we never used. It was so perfectly located that we walked to Ocean Street in town to eat breakfast one morning. The beach is a close walk also, but it was too cold to do so. We drove the scenic road around by the coast. Gorgeous! Katee's rental was very comfortable and clean, and we especially loved the back yard! We fell asleep sitting up in the bench across from the outdoor fireplace. Her decor is so precious and felt so much like we lived there. Cute neighborhood, very quiet streets, no noise from anyone. Will definitely stay there again when we return!

We are 2 hours south of San Francisco and 1 1/2 hours south of San Jose. It is a 10 minute walk to Carmel River Beach--ideal for walking, kayaking, surfing and beach bonfires. The house is a quick walk away from Carmel by-the-Sea, a picturesque community world-renowned for its high quality restaraunts, shopping and art galleries. Drive 15 minutes to the famous Pebble Beach Resorts to play one of the world's most historic golf courses. The Dramatic coastline of Big Sur is just south of Carmel and provides some of the most beautiful views imagineable of the Pacific Ocean. There are lots of interesting sites to visit such as the Carmel Mission--a few blocks away, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and beautiful 17-Mile Drive. Visiting Carmel's famous Ocean Avenue is an unparalleled shopping experience with small boutiques and art galleries you won't find anywhere else.
