About Tobin Schneider

I have been a part time resident of Carmel by the Sea since 2010. While I live and work primarily in the San Francisco Bay area, I have been visiting Carmel for decades and became fortunate enough to purchase a vacation home there. I use it often, and rent it when I am not able to be in Carmel

Tobin Schneider purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Tobin Schneider chose Carmel By the Sea

Le Sejour Parfait is located in the best area of Carmel by the Sea. Only a few blocks away is Carmel Beach in one direction and in another direction all the restaurants, shops, and galleries of Carmel by the Sea. All the cares of the world seem to melt away here. One can watch whales and porpoises from the beach and enjoy a gourmet meal at one of the many dining establishments all within a short stroll from the home

What makes this cottage unique

Le Sejour Parfait is charming, cozy, and flows seamlessly from indoors to out, allowing guests to take full advantage of the natural beauty of Carmel by the Sea

Lovely Carmel Cottage!

We really enjoyed the quaintness of the property. So close to town for a nice walk. The outside area was very comfortable. We would definitely come back!

Charming Coastal Cottage in Enchanting Forest Town!

  • 5 of 5

Le Sejour Parfait is such an amazing cottage in the heart of an enchanting town! Toby's house is very nicely appointed...comfy beds, kitchen with everything you might possibly need (blender, pizza cutter, little device for squeezing name a few.) Even the dinnerware is charming. Our two little dogs love exploring in the fully fenced in yard and romping on the off-leash, dog-friendly beach just a short walk away. You can also walk into town for delicious food and chains in town, so it's like you're in a different country. I've already recommended Toby's home to friends and family. Visitors here will not be disappointed.

Had a Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 days at Le Sejour Parfait and had a fantastic time. The house was perfect for us and our dogs and included all the amenities you need while away from home. The attention to detail in the decor was fabulous too. The dogs loved the deck and the backyard to relax after a day of fun. A perfect, quiet location where you can walk to town for shopping, dinner or the farmer's market or to the beach for some scenic exercise. Toby was great to work with and very responsive to all our questions. We're looking forward to returning next year.

Luxury Hidden Gem in the Heart of Carmel!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Toby's elegantly french-inspired cottage in Carmel aiming for a complete R&R. Our goal was achieved. By Day 1 we already feel relaxed. The cottage and neighborhood is peaceful and has a beautiful garden. The beds are very comfortable, kitchen fully-equipped with everything you can think of. Nothing was missed on this priceless gem in the heart of Carmel. Toby, was a delight to work with. He was prompt in responding and welcoming. Our dogs were happy running in the backyard while we relax in the patio. We did not use our car - all we did was walk to restaurants, beach, and shopping which was all walking distance. We will definitely be back and make this property our vacation rental stay. We frequent Carmel with our dogs and staying in Toby's cottage was much more convenient. Un havre de paix!

Fantastic Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

Elegant, charming, and comfortable describes this French inspired, coastal feeling home. The living room furniture and the especially the beds are very plush. The kitchen is fully equipped with well made pots, pans, and all the gadgets needed for cooking. You'll dine on beautiful china plates. Spices, paper towels, and napkins are provided, as well as shampoo, body wash, and paper products for the bathrooms. No need to bring beach towels or beach chairs as those are provided too. Tobin checked in with us to make sure everything was OK, he also provides a list of nearby restaurants and things to do. My expectations were highly exceeded.

My family walked to the beach everyday, sometimes twice to watch the sunset. We also had a short walk into town. No need for a car unless you want to go to the many golf courses that are close by as my husband and daughter did. We had two dogs that enjoyed the fenced yard and trips to the dog friendly beach and the many dog friendly restaurants in Carmel. My teenage children rated this as one of their top vacations because they got to relax and "spread out", because they weren't on top of each other as they would be in a hotel room. I can't recommend this house enough, as we are already planning to return again. One last thing, look for a small sign that says "The Dinning Car", to identify the house.

Absolutely Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Carmel every year for the past 20 years, and have rented many homes through the years. This one stands out as an absolute gem.

Warm and inviting and spectacular furnishings surround you with the feeling of home. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need, and beach items are available in the laundry room. The beautiful bedrooms and baths are at separate ends of the home allowing for privacy.

The fenced in yard was wonderful for our dog, and it was a quick walk down to the beach or into town. Many rentals are either too far from town or from the beach. This home is in an ideal location to enjoy both. Afternoon Champagne on the back deck and under the Oak Trees was so enjoyable.

Tobin was in touch before, during and after our stay to ensure we had a great vacation and got back to us immediately with questions we had.

We had a wonderful week and we will be back! Thank you so much!
