We live on a hill with stairs to the back yard. Toddlers would have to be closely supervised for safety. We also have a hot tub that should be limited to children especially under the age of 12. The home interior is very appropriate for children and families....moreless

Carmel is not only proclaimed 'the most romantic city on the U.S., it is said to be third in the world, after Paris and Venice, Italy! There is never a shortage of great food; fine restaurants such as Casanova's will have you wondering if you have entered the south of France! Looking for good music? Warm up your voice because Mission Ranch, owned by Clint Eastwood, has open mic night 7 days a week. You may get a peek of Clint himself. The Cypress Inn, co owned by Doris Day, has weekend entertainment featuring Debbie Davis and Gennady Loktionov on Friday and Saturday nights. The Sunset center has many wonderful performances as well. Like and indoor and out door exercise! In-shape health clubs is within 3 miles of our home, and Running trails are within 1 mile. Like the Beach? Carmel known also for its Dog friendly Ocean Beach. It is the place to be to take in a perfect sunset! Surrounding communities such as Big Sur and Carmel Valley have fabulous wine tasting, dining and breathtaking views. Do not miss Post Ranch, rocky pointe and Nepenthe in Big Sur, for dining and views.
Carmel Valley is rated in the top 1% in California for exquisite wine tasting.
Monterey Bay Aquarium may require a full day of sea life emersion. We have 2 guest passes to use; please reserve in advance when booking.
Pebble Beach has fabulous Golf.. but oh, the restaurants are amazing! Sit by the fire at the Bench at Pebble Beach Lodge and overlook Stillwater Bay! Spanish Bay has an authentic bagpipe player at sunset 7 days per week. Grab a chair around a roaring fire pit, sip your favorite beverage and make a memory.
If going to a world class spa is on your bucket list, try Casa Palmero in Pebble Beach. Every moment spent is sheer heaven!
There is simply not enough time in one weekend to take it all in; you will just have to come back!
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: My Husband, Rob and I are new to residents to Carmel, but we have worked here for many years. We have opened businesses in the community and have children who attend both Stevenson and River Elementary schools. We fell in love with Carmel decades ago and only dreamed of one day building our life here. Its a funny thing about dreams. They stay a dream until they come true, and then its always such a 'surprise!' We love having a home in the valley that we rent through VRBO as well. We have met the nicest people from literally all over the world. We love that they choose our home to house the mother and father of the bride, to celebrate a birthday, a girls' weekend getaway, or a 50th wedding anniversary. No matter what the celebration, it is always there to make lasting memories. We think the world is a better place because love and happiness are extended far beyond the walls of our rental and memories are the forever lasting evidence . We are excited to have others share the same joy in our Carmel home. This is why we chose the name joie de vivre as it means 'joy of life' and is our favorite sculpture of our local sculptor Richard Mac Donald.
Why the Owner Chose Northeast Carmel, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, USA:
We loved this particular property because of its quiet neighborhood and lovely setting. The house at the time of our purchase needed some loving care and was in need up an update. We loved taking on the challenge and hand selecting all of the finishes and details that we feel helped to maximize its potential while sustaining the intrinsic charm of Carmel. We love its accessibility to major thoroughfares that can take you anywhere on the peninsula without having to navigate through town. We live just minutes from our little cottage so love sharing it with guests and family. We always want our guests to feel special and served and being close by helps to ensure we can make that happen.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We think you will love the front gardens, the special updated appointments in the house, the fire bowl and outdoor living and the cozy interior gas fireplace. This house is designed for entertaining. We think you will love venturing out and coming back to a cozy lovely place with every comfort of home.
