Description of the Carmel Valley vacation home rental
This serenely comfortable home and tranquil setting will melt your cares away. Soak in the hot tub, enjoy the gardens, swim in the pool, or read a book by the fireplace. This is a classic Monterey Post/Adobe style house that has been fully remodeled and exquisitely furnished. There are many inviting outdoor nooks to discover here. Walk to Carmel Valley Village and taste wine at one of the many tasting rooms or dine at a choice of international restaurants.

Perfect for families, personal, group, and executive retreats, or small quiet seminars and workshops.

In this park-like setting, you can hear the sounds of birds and the gentle breeze rippling through the pine trees, see an occasional hawk circling over the property, or revel in watching the pool reflections on the living room ceiling. The back terrace, accessible through French doors from the dining room area, has a table with umbrella and chairs surrounded by a raised terraced garden. Each of the five bedrooms has night tables with reading lamps and pretty bedspreads.

Fully-equipped and very roomy kitchen. Gas cook top, single gas oven, water filter, microwave, full set of utensils and cooking accessories, coffee maker, toaster oven, phone, breakfast nook (not in picture) with pool view, and skylight.

Natural, pond-like full-size swimming pool with solar heat. Pool is swim-able from approximately May through most of October. Hot tub behind bamboo provides serene privacy. Surrounded by pine, maple, willow, and fruit trees full of birds, an occasional deer, and other wildlife.

Cozy living room with fireplace, Tibetan rug, oriental cabinet, book collection, view of pool and garden, writing desk, high speed Internet, TV, VCR, cable, CD, and radio.

Hummingbird House

October 24, 2016

Every morning I had the great view from the bathroom window: a pair of hummingbirds in the flower bed full of violet flowers. I loved the garden with the lagoon and stream and the willow with it´s shade....The large comfortable house was real home to us for 2 weeks. Although the house is built on the streets his sensitive position in the garden provide privacy and a sense of security.I wish I could return there someday .... Radka

We were looking forward for this vacation, we stayed connected with the owner through out the whole time, But the fire was spreading, with a mutual agreement, we had to cancel. The owners of this property were amazing. Thank you.

We were a group of men involved in racing a car at the Historic Races at Laguna Seca. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. It was wonderful to return to the house every day following the racing, swimming in the pool, relaxing, etc. It was a very comfortable home.

Thank you Lynda and Chuck for this beautiful vacation weekend! Our group came for the motoGP race at Laguna Seca--some have been here many times, othes only a couple, however we have all found a new favorite place to stay. We have tried hotels, motels and campsites and unanimously agree this house was the BEST CHOICE!

You must know already that the grounds here are beautiful, serene and relaxing. You must also know that the furnishings are more than adequate--we had everything we needed. What you may not know is how much fun we were able to have here. We came from all over the state to spend the weeekend here together and had an amazing time thanks to this WAY COOL HOUSE!!

We barbequed each night, hung out on the deck, swam in the pool, listened to the music and bonded over meals and household chores. We all say forget the hotel! We want to come back here!!

Thanks again--we loved it here!!

Much love,
Mike and friends
