Prime Vacation spot: Nantucket West, Carmel by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this lovely home was just as nice as our first trip, reinforcing our opinion that we would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a restful, comfortable, peaceful, and well stocked home in excellent condition to spend their Carmel vacation time at. The owner is so easy to work with, professional and accommodating, and he anticipates all ones needs while there. With it's prime location being a couple blocks from the ocean, as well as downtown and all it's restaurants and shopping venues, there really is no need for a car unless you want to take in some of the other nearby natural attractions like Point Lobos, Big Sur, or golfing at one of the many nearby golf courses. We have a large family, with different family members coming and going, and there's plenty of space for all. The outside patio is perfect for night time ambiance as well as daytime lounging and playing games. We are already looking forward to spending our next summer month long vacation at this amazing home!

Carmel Comfort-By-The Sea

  • 5 of 5

We visited Carmel for Car Week in October 2015, and we were very lucky to be able to stay at such a beautiful property. The house has a very tranquil and private setting as it is surrounded by Oaks. This charming craftsman style home is ideally located, walking distance to downtown Carmel and only a stones throw to the beach. The house is built with exposed beam ceilings, rich woodwork and a brick fireplace. The exterior has gracious landscaping with multiple patios that invites outdoor living. I will let the property owner's words speak for themselves, but I found their description to be right on the mark. The house is tastefully decorated inside and can easily accommodate a family or group of friends looking for a relaxing stay. We found the beds very comfortable and were very pleased to find that the house had a real, wood-burning fireplace, reinforcing its charm. With its combination of charm, convenience, and privacy, I would highly recommend this property to anyone considering a trip to Carmel. It is truly a wonderful property.

Owner's Response: George, thank you for your positive clarify for future guests, the fireplace is actually gas that burns on cement logs, but it does appear very much like a wood burning fireplace and throws out a lot of heat. Jim C

The best vacation rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

Over the years, we have rented numerous VRBO homes. This past Thanksgiving we enjoyed 9 days at the Nantucket West property in Carmel, CA. What a wonderful experience! This beautiful, charming home has been very well cared for over the years. The furnishings are lovely and the kitchen and bathrooms have all been updated with very nice appliances and fixtures. The home is incredibly well stocked and equipped and the owners are very generous in letting their renters use everything. The location is perfect, two blocks to the beach and three blocks to downtown. We really didn't need a car. This is by far the best vacation home we have ever rented and we are already signed up for another two weeks this year!

Fabulous in Carmel

  • 5 of 5

I just retuned home from a fabulous vacation with 5 fabulous ladies at the Nantucket West property in Carmel, CA. I must say that the owner was always concerned about our experience in Carmel. The house is very, very nice. Less than 2 blocks from the ocean. Wow! And a very well stocked house with a lovely patio. We all truly enjoyed our time at the beautiful "Nantucket West".

Beautiful home, excellent location, very attentive and kind host!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 stayed at this wonderful Carmel Beach home and had a perfect vacation! The house is 2 blocks from the beach, and is convenient to other Carmel, Monterey, Pacific Grove and Big Sur attractions. It's a traditional Carmel home- charming, spacious and well-maintained with an updated kitchen, gracious living and dining rooms and a large outdoor patio. The owner was very attentive to all of our requests and was a pleasure to do business with. We highly recommend this home and are eager to return!

Perfect for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week here. During two or three of the days, there were ten of us in the house, and we all managed to find a place to sleep. The house is lovely. Furnished as one's own home might be, and there were ample supplies for beach going, sitting on the nice patio, and cooking. The beach is close by. The town is near enough for walking. And we spent time exploring the Pacific coast. Jim recently added more improvements.
