Welcome to "Restful Refuge Guest House"!

Escape to your own little island of tranquility in this 600-square-foot studio guest cottage that perfectly encapsulates Carmel's unique style of casual comfort and urbane sophistication. Situated in a lovely quiet residential area, it is just minutes from stunning white beaches and the many exciting shops and restaurants of downtown Carmel and environs. The 2-bedroom, 2-bath main house is also available for rent together with the guest studio or separately (see #3276 on this website for more information).

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and sparkling cider, spa passes from the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, Scheid Wine passes and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, embroidered spa bathrobes and over sized towels and beach gear.

Natural sisal and jute rugs over a wide-plank wood floor contribute to the upscale beach motif, with its white, chocolate brown, tan and sea-foam color scheme and bright, upbeat tone. Warm yourself by a cheery wood stove while you play games, read or watch a 46-inch LCD HD TV with dish network service from a cushy white couch and chaise with an ottoman coffee table.

If you choose, you can shop for fresh meats and seafood, fruits and veggies, gourmet cheeses, wines and pastries at nearby purveyors of local delicacies and prepare your own meals in the full-sized fully equipped white-tiled kitchen that has a flower-filled window box above the sink overlooking a lush wooded area. The kitchen is equipped with a gas range, microwave, dishwasher and side-by-side refrigerator. A dark wood drop-leaf dining table behind the couch is set up to seat 2 but can be expanded to accommodate 6.

A king bed, which can be converted to 2 twins, is topped with Memory Foam and appointed with luxury linens and a generous supply of throw pillows.

A closet and two Bombay bedside bureaus provide ample storage. The studio can sleep 2 adults and 1 adult or child on a roll-away bed with Memory Foam mattress, and another small child on the couch (which is not a sleeper sofa but deep enough). The spotless white-tiled bathroom has a tub/shower combination.

A week of bliss and relaxation in an otherworldly place.

David S. from Davis, CA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2014
My girlfriend and I have just returned from an amazing, magical stay in the Restful Refuge Guest House in Carmel. It was perfect in every way, so tastefully decorated and furnished. We had such a wonderful time in the Guest House, and in exploring Carmel and Monterrey. From the Guest House, we walked into Carmel and Monterrey everyday, strolling along the beach or visiting Cannery Row. The property was well maintained and extraordinarily clean. Everything worked like a charm. Plus, the Property Manager was exceedingly helpful and friendly. She made us feel right at home. In fact, we felt like we were at home in the Guest House. We would definitely recommend this property to all our friends and family. And at the first opportunity to return to Carmel, the Guest House will definitely be on the top of our list of places to stay. Thank you.

Everything was wonderful. Spent the month there experiencing what it would be like to live in carmel. I felt as comfortable in the cottage as I do in my own home. Loved it

Dreamsville by the sea

Warren D. from Redding, CA recommends this property

The studio was perfect in many ways. Parking on the street was the only flaw. The peninsula offers so much to do and see. Our weather was out of this world. We will be back many times!

Loved the house, the private setting, the trees!

A Guest from Castlerock, CO recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in May, 2014
Everything was made easy and delightful. Great size, convenient, especially since I had my bike with me. Power went out my first night, and none of the flashlights had battery power, and one plumbing issue got resolved immediately. I even got some logs dropped off for the fireplace. Everone so nice - would come again soon!

Early Spring Getaway

A Guest from Vancouver, Brittish Columbia recommends this property
Stayed 14 days in Feb, 2014
It was very pleasant. A few items could be updated to justify the high price we paid. Repair or replace blinds. Update kitchen area. Replace burnt out lightbulbs.
