Owner Supplied Testimonials

We spent a fantastic two weeks in this house exploring the Monterey area. Coming from central London, we really enjoyed the space of the house. Our two year old particularly enjoyed sprinting down the long hallways. We had glorious weather and enjoyed time on the patio as well as exploring the coastline. The house is in the hills above Carmel which is usually sunny when Carmel-by-the Sea is in fog and also conveniently located for explorign in all directions. The house was very nice and comfortable and a perfect place for a family holiday. We spent a lot of time exploring Big Sur and particularly loved Pfeiffer Beach. Asilomar was beautiful anytime of day. Ken, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and made us feel really welcome. We would heartily recommend this house and the area. Elizabeth

Absolutely fantastic! A very private, warm, inviting home. And we did see Bambi et al and a friendly squirrel in the mornings. Just around the corner from downtown Carmel, but far enough away to never know you were in a tourist area. Highly recommended!


We had a wonderful time in Carmel. After visiting mainly sierras, lakes and mountains in California, we opt to visit this beautiful city. Your house is charming, spacious, comfortable and decorated with great taste. We enjoyed having a cup of fresh coffee sitting outside, either in the front or rear deck. Watching or listening to wild life was relaxing. The regret we have is not to be able to spend more time in the house, since we wanted to visit places around, hopefuly next time.
Thanks again Ken.

Comfortable home in quiet area, but well situated for shops, etc. Lots of living space to spread out and delightful deck for relaxation. Overall impression was that it was so peaceful and quiet.

We love it here! The house is beautiful and quite complete. We adore the grounds and saw families of deer. We hope to spend time here again in the future!
Gail & Dennis Atlanta, GA

Words are not enough to express our gratitude and wonderful experience we've all had here in the last week. The house is beautiful- we couldn't have asked for more. We got to see the family of deer, too! We sincerely appreciate this and will see you next year!
Larry Salt Lake City, UT

The house was beautiful, very clean and comfortable with all amenities as advertised. The owner was always extremely helpful to us and gave us lots of useful information both before and during our stay We found it very comfortable and in a lovely location and thoroughly recommend this property. Carmel is a lovely place and we enjoyed divine pastries in the town centre at a french place near Tiffany, pizza at Allegro at The Barnyard, Breakfast at From Scratch, Dinner at The Hogs Breath and particularly liked Pfeifer State Beach and our trip to Nepenthe at Big Sur. Many Thanks for all your help and advice.

We just got home from dinner (Luca was terrific) and wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had in your lovely home. Everything was great - comfortable bedrooms, kitchen, relaxing sitting area with TV, lovely deck, etc. Weather has been great. Randy and I played at Monterey CC, Corral de Tierra, and Pasatiempo with beautiful weather, while the ladies shopped (Ouch!)
Thanks for helping make our stay in Carmel very relaxing...but, as always, too short.
