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 By the Sea

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 the prestigious area known as Carmel Meadows, a 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.

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!

Wonderful Stay in This Lovely Home by the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband, ten-year-old son, and I spent a week here over Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful time and would love to stay here again. The owner, Ann, was very pleasant and easy to deal with, and went out of her way to ensure that we had a great stay. The home is immaculate, the beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and updated, there are nice flat-screen TVs in the living room and master bedroom, and there are three separate outdoor spaces that add a lot of comfort to the home. There is an elevator to the garage, which has a modern washer and dryer. One of the best features of this home, in my opinion, is its location. It sits on a lovely street across from the Carmel River and close to town, and is a half-mile walk away from a spectacular beach. We enjoyed long walks on the beach every morning. I highly recommend this property.
