Welcome to "Carmel Magical Getaway"!

Enjoy the pleasures of both land and sea from a centrally located, 2,500-square-foot home in a quiet neighborhood on the outskirts of Carmel. Sparkling clean and freshly painted, this spacious 3-bedroom, 3-bath house has new carpeting throughout and an open floor plan that lends itself to congenial socializing.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a tasting at Scheid Winery 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, plush bathrobes and oversized towels.

A large living area -- with a wood-burning fireplace and baby grand piano -- opens up to a deck that looks out to rolling hills and a grassy meadow teeming with wildlife. A cheerful kitchen is equipped with everything needed to easily entertain 10 or more people in the adjacent dining area.

The light-filled lower level features glass doors opening up to a fenced back yard. A comfortable family room on this level, with a pull-out sofa bed, provides a separate area for the kids to play games or for TV watching.

Restful meadow views are also afforded from the first-floor master bedroom, which has a master bath with separate tub and shower. A third bedroom on the lower level has a king bed and its own bathroom. An additional bedroom and bathroom are on the first floor as well.

The house is equipped with wifi, high-speed internet, unlimited local and long-distance service, 40-inch plasma TV with DVD/VHS and a stereo system. Washer and dryer are on site as is all the equipment you will need for outdoor excursions: beach chairs, umbrellas, a picnic basket and coolers. You can cook out on a gas grill, and firewood is provided for the fireplace as well as for beach fires, which are permitted on nearby Ribera Beach. The garage is not available for cars, but there is off-street parking for two vehicles and plenty more parking on the street.

Ideal for one or more families or several couples, this is a welcoming place where you can relax and feel at home. When you arrive, you will be greeted with a personal note and a basket with a bottle of sparkling cider and a sun-dried tomato pesto torta in the refrigerator and animal crackers for the kids.

For nature lovers, a 10-minute walk will take you to off-the-beaten-path places never discovered by most tourists, including Ribera Beach and Carmel River Beach, where the Carmel River empties into the ocean. Also within walking distance are the historic Carmel Mission and Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch. Point Lobos is minutes away by car.

There is a basket brimming with local information about Carmel, Carmel Valley (wine tasting country) Pebble Beach (home of the AT&T and the recent U.S. Open), Big Sur, golf (over 15courses in the area), State Parks, area attractions, shopping, (Safeway, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, and Costco are all within 10 minutes), Monterey Aquarium, Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. Even if you stayed a year you could not put a dent in all the area has to offer. Once here, you will most likely be planning your return trip to this wonderful home and the Monterey Peninsula.

Carmel Magical Getaway

Jeannette H. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2014
Fantastic location. We were attending the Bach Festival. Property was close to venues, but removed from traffic. Beautiful, relaxing views. As advertised, close to probably the best beach we walked on during our 1-week stay. Very comfortable for three couples. Well equipped.

Our party had a family loss the week before. Owners were very accommodating when our party increased from 6 to 10 people so the family could share remembrances on the full-length porch overlooking a lovely view.

Saw fat bunnies, a couple stags, a covey of quail, and a family of quail with little ones. Lots of birds. Very quiet.

Owners checked several times to see if there was anything we needed, without being intrusive. Very nice people. Very generous.

BTW - "Magical Getaway" - Didn't initially make the connection between the location name and the extensive collection of paraphernalia and books on magic. Owner is a professional magician!

Restaurants: Mission Ranch - $$$, but not as pricey as we expected. Yes, many of the menu items look like American "comfort food", but the preparation is exceptional. Our foodies were very impressed. Beautiful location. One of the views is across to the ridge where the rental is located.

Cindy's at the Aquarium - $$$. Did not expect a restaurant at a tourist location to be outstanding, but it is. And you can't beat the views of Monterey Bay. Quiet. Excellent service. Excellent wines.

Refuge Spa recommended by Sunset mag was a big hit. Only $109 for massage and plunge pools in a beautiful setting.

Nepenthe in Big Sur, 17 Mile Drive in Pebble Beach, Monterey Fisherman’s Wharf are, of course, all must sees. If you are into music, the Bach Festival is wonderful. Not only are the music and international performers first rate, but hearing the concerts in the different venues is a real treat. The All Bach Organ Concert in the Carmel Mission was amazing.

Our two families with children ranging in age from 1 to 9 spent an extremely enjoyable week at this "magical getaway". We enjoyed the location on the outskirts of Carmel with easy access to everything -- the beach, Point Lobos, downtown Carmel, Monterey, even a grocery store and other helpful shopping options. The house was comfortable and felt like home, the owners were extremely accommodating and all of the little amenities (aquarium passes, firewood for beach fires, etc.) made staying there a breeze. Would love to go back!
