Welcome to “La Casa Fina!” Home sleeps up to 4 adults and 2 children age 12 or under.

Capture the full charm of the Carmel-by-the-Sea experience in this tidy 1242 square feet, two+ bedroom, two-bath cottage called La Casa Fina that is within walking distance of the heart of the village, with its many shops, boutiques, art galleries and award-winning restaurants. Located in a sunny, quiet neighborhood, this friendly one-story dwelling, which has been freshly painted inside, can accommodate up to six.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complementary wine and cheese, passes to the renown Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear.

A seashore motif, replete with shells, driftwood and soft sun-washed colors of sea-foam blue, sand and white, melds with Pottery Barn flair to produce an environment that is sophisticated yet offers total relaxation and escape. The spacious living room features a coved ceiling with spot lighting, three large paned windows with white shutters that allow in lots of light, hardwood floors and a wood-burning fireplace. Comfortable yet stylish furnishings are accessorized with plenty of pillows and soft, textured throws.

Enjoy gourmet meals in a separate dining room - with built-in cabinetry and a view out through hydrangeas and an orange tree to the street - that can seat six people at the sturdy wooden farmhouse table. Place settings and table linens are provided. Adjacent is the fully-equipped kitchen with its cabinetry painted in a deep ocean blue, tile floor, a self-cleaning gas stove, refrigerator and various small appliances (there is no dishwasher in this kitchen - catch up with loved ones while doing the washing up after shared meals). A separate laundry room with stacking washer-dryer is just off the kitchen.

The sunny master bedroom, decorated in sea-foam green and earth tones, has a king-sized bed with luxury linens, plenty of built-in cabinets and closets and views out through bougainvillea blossoms to a spacious back deck. The master bathroom with tumbled-marble tile has a large step in shower with bench seat and is equipped with sturdy hand-rails.

A second bedroom, which has two twin beds with luxury linens that can be put together to form a king with Memory Foam topper, looks out to a smaller back deck and a bistro table and chairs where you can enjoy the fresh ocean air while you sip your morning coffee.

Accessed via the second bedroom is a sun room where you can cozy up to read a book from the library provided. Or, the day bed in this cheerful space can sleep one child or can convert to a king bed to sleep two children. Both of these rooms likewise are decorated in sea-foam green and earthen colors. A second pristine white bathroom in the hallway between the two bedrooms has a tub and separate shower, also equipped with hand rails.

Two decks in back surrounded by a hedge of pampas grass and furnished with wrought iron chairs, tables, a chaise lounge and a gas grill, provide plenty of sunny space for relaxation, recreation or dining.

Two cars can be parked in the driveway; additional street parking is available. The garage at this property is not available to guests. Well-behaved dogs are welcome, subject to owner’s approval.

“Very Comfortable Home In A Great Location!  We had a wonderful stay in this very comfortable home. It's a great location for walking to town and is in a peaceful and quiet setting. The home was in lovely condition when we arrived and the management was attentive and helpful throughout our stay. We were able to walk to many enjoyable restaurants and shops. We would highly recommend this lovely home.”

“Quiet, Sun-Filled, Relaxing Stay at “Casa Fina” In Carmel, California
La Casa Fina is located in a very quiet residential neighborhood that is a short drive to the great shops and ocean beach in downtown Carmel. Sunlight fills all the rooms, and the house has everything you need for a relaxing vacation, to either stay in or entertain friends. The beds were very comfortable, and the linens and kitchen appointments were designed for comfort and functionality. We had a great stay in this charming cottage, and anyone who stays here will also appreciate the privacy, quiet surroundings, and well tended garden. I highly recommend La Casa Fina for your next trip to Carmel.”

“Perfect, Perfect, Perfect!
Can't remember when we have enjoyed a vacation more! Casa Fina is so welcoming and comfortable and it was such a treat to call it our home for five fabulous days! My morning walks to the village and ocean with my 11 year old daughter was a perfect way to start each day!
From the moment we walked in (the wine and cheese, so special) we wanted for nothing, there attention to every detail is amazing. The towels, linens and robes were very luxurious. Normally we do not like to cook on vacations, however, we found it hard to leave Casa Fina in the evenings. Our evening fires, music and wine tastings made cooking even seem fun (the kitchen has everything you would ever need and a grill on the patio).  Thank you for making our stay in Carmel unforgettable!  P.S. Our six year old Grandson Connor, really summed it up “Nana and Papa, I don't ever want to leave”!”

“A “Home” To Come Home To!
After a day filled with exploring, tasting, eating, people watching or dog walking, it is wonderful coming back to a place that envelops you in privacy and comfort.   Beauty surrounds you - soft, comforting colors; rooms you can put your feet up in; lush couches in the living room or private, cushy beds and pillows to fall into in bedrooms that welcome a tired shopper or traveller. Dinner available practically around the corner; or better yet, a well equipped kitchen for cooking your favorite fare to share in the inviting dining room, formal or casual, your choice.
The luxury of two separate bathrooms, with "spa" like amenities, one must take advantage of to enjoy without having to "book" a time at some other location.  Here is the perfect home away from home where anyone can find relaxation and familiarity!”

“We had a wonderful time staying here in the hills of Carmel! The house was even better than the pictures depicted. We had a wonderful weekend with riding our bikes all over Carmel and the 17 mile drive. It was very easy to get to town on our bikes, somewhat more work coming home, but we found the roads that were less steep. Comfortable beds, and nice showers, with good lighting were a pleasant surprise. The neighborhood was very quiet. I'm sure you will enjoy staying here as much as we did! We are already looking forward to our next stay here.”

“Sunny, Comfortable Carmel Cottage
We were looking for a comfortable, yet classy place to enjoy Carmel when we found this unique little spot. We can highly recommend this newly renovated "beachy" cottage which we found located in a quaint, convenient location on a quiet street with friendly neighbors. 
The cottage is well appointed and bright with total comfort! The sofa and chair in the living room made us feel right at home, and the back yard with spacious deck provided ample space for a relaxing BBQ. We can't wait to return to this cozy cottage!”
