We have been to Carmel many times and it is always a special place. It was made more special by staying right downtown in such a nice apartment. The apartment was clean and well appointed. There is some town noise in the early mornings with the street cleaning and sanitation trucks but nothing that would prevent us from staying again at this apartment.
We've stayed at Villa by the Sea 4 times over the past 10 years and it's become our home away from home. It's a lovely place with lots of room, great views of the ocean and it's centrally located near waterside walking paths, the Aquarium, Cannery Row and many excellent restaurants. We rarely have to use the car once we're settled in. Watch for for the seagull we've named "Roofus" that always seems to be perched on the house next door. Definitely worth a visit!
