  • Great little place to stay in Yosemite

    "My wife and I just returned from our stay at the Sweet Retreat cottage. It was perfect for us. Very clean and comfortable and a great location to explore Yosemite and the surrounding area. We did just that ..going to Yosemite,Kings Canyon,Sequoia,Pacific coast and a lot more. We enjoyed it very much and highly recommend it. Reasonably priced and Mike and Sharon were very nice and very helpful hosts...hope to return again...Roger & Pam"

  • Breathtaking

    "Even for a person who has lived most of my life on the coast, staying at the Abalone Cottage was an incredibly experience. To have the Pacific Ocean as part of the front yard is so seldom experienced that it was all we could do to tear ourselves away from the view to do anything else. The cottage is immaculately maintained both inside and out, no small task for a home on the water. The furniture is extremely comfortable, the kitchen had everything I could possibly need, the linens were wonderful, more hidden in plain sight storage space was discovered every day, lanterns and flashlights were conveniently placed should we lose power (we didn't) and wood available should we want to make a fire. The showers were great, the bathroom spotless, plenty of extra towels for shower or the beach and even an apartment size washer/dryer was provided. There is nothing more we could have asked for. We were in love and truly hope to return next year."

  • Another idyllic experience

    "My husband and I have been renting Castillo Caracol for periods ranging from just a week to several months since 2013. We obviously enjoy staying on beautiful Carmel Point and at this particular property for many reasons. The property is perfectly situated with lovely views of Carmel River Beach and the Pacific Ocean, with Carmel Meadows and Point Lobos in the distance. We particularly enjoy sitting out and entertaining on the outside patio, which not only affords these lovely views but also boasts a wonderful outdoor wood-burning fireplace, surrounded by sculptural trees and beautiful gardens. There's also a gas fireplace in the living room, which adds to the welcoming nature of the space. The property has a great layout, is well appointed and equipped, and maintained beautifully. The owners are especially kind people. The property is located within walking distance or a very short drive to Mission Ranch, which offers great tennis, a small fitness center, and a wonderful patio and dining rooms for cocktails and dinner (the patio overlooks a meadow where the Ranch's sheep graze, with Carmel River Beach and the Pacific Ocean in the distance). We can't say enough about what a special place for us this is. We look forward to our future visits."

  • perfect spot for a family get together

    "We rented the house along with the cabins on Monastary beach for a family get together for 20. We found the arrangement perfect. My one concern about the house was the remote location. It is rather remote, but we found that to be a plus not a minus. It takes perhaps 10-15 minutes to get into carmel, not a big deal really. The house itself is set up perfectly for a family get together with a couple of great patio spaces, a big BBQ and a million dollar view of the sea and carmel. We had four couples staying in the house and each had what amounted to a master suite for themselves....we cooked ourselves most nights and the kitchen had everything you could possibly want included. this was certainly a high end luxury rental experience. Overall I think the actual unit Is in fact much nicer than the pictures provided on the VRBO site."
