About Ann M.

My family and I have been visiting the Monterey Peninsula for many years and have grown to love the peace and serenity that coastal living offers. We are from Northern California and spend time in the Sierra Tahoe area as well.

Ann M. purchased this house in 2014

Why Ann M. chose Carmel Meadows

After many years of searching for a home in the Carmel/Monterey area, we were lucky enough to find our home in what had become our favorite area: Carmel Meadows.

Slightly removed, but still just minutes away (by car), or a (nice, long, Beachfront/Scenic Dr.) walk to the excitement of downtown Carmel; we feel this place is a much needed sanctuary for us to rest, relax and unwind.

What makes this house unique

This home is located in a prestigious, and quiet, neighborhood boasting (two) coastal access paths to a semi secluded stretch of beach, situated between Monastery and Carmel Beaches. There is also hiking access/road along the perimeter of the Carmel River Lagoon Sanctuary.

Everything as advertised and better!

  • 5 of 5

Great house in beautiful setting overlooking Carmel Valley and a short walk to the beach. The chilled bottle of Chardonnay as a welcome gift from Ann was a nice touch. We were two couples and the house can certainly accommodate more with a third room and a third hall bath. The layout is great with elevated views from both living areas, the dining area and the kitchen. The house is spacious and very comfortable but at the same time has separated master bedrooms for maximum privacy. The outdoor gas fire pit is handy and easy to use. We Uber's to town and back for dinner, less tha &10 each way so you can see how relatively close it is to town. And there are plenty of cars available. Overall, a great find on home away. We will return! Thanks Ann.

Bright, Spacious, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the property to be exactly as described. Every morning we walked the 5 minutes to the shore pathway, beautiful views in all directions. 10 min. drive to downtown Carmel, a couple minutes to Point Lobos and 30 to Big Sur. House layout was perfect for our group of four. Additionally, Ann was incredibly responsive.

Great view, location and stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are Berkeley residents and spent 5 days here in August with our friends from St. Louis. We usually stay in Pacific Grove when we visit, and we wondered if we would be happy with the location on the south side of Carmel, but it was perfect! The house is on a very quiet street facing the Carmel River and we loved the views. Morning, day and night, it was terrific being in the kitchen/living area or on the deck and looking out the window. And... the walk to the beach was terrific. Short walk through the neighborhood to the trail and then stunning views both north and south. We walked all the way to Monastery Beach to the south or you could even walk north across the sand bridge to Carmel! The house itself is spacious, pretty, immaculate and ideal for 2 couples. We cooked two meals there and highly recommend folks take advantage of the kitchen and views to stay home for some meals. Getting into Carmel for restaurants was easy as was driving to Monterey for the aquarium. But an added benefit is how close you are to Carmel Valley or Hwy 1 towards Big Sur. With Ann's recommendation we enjoyed the spectacular setting and view and had a great lunch at Rocky Point. Thanks Ann.

Beach House with sunny views and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and beautiful views! So close to the beach and lots of wonderful restaurants to eat at!

The homeowner was wonderful and even had a goodies for us upon arrival! Beds were super comfortable and large flat screen TVs were an added touch! The two Master Suites were amazing and accommodated our family perfectly! Lots of plush bath towels, pots and pans to cook with, nice coffee machine and even a hair dryer too! Thank you Ann for sharing your lovely home with our family! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends!
