"This place is amazing, elegant and comfortable at the same time. Newly remodeled with no detail spared. The open concept joining the kitchen, living room, and deck make this ideal for family gatherings or entertaining. The kitchen is stocked with with every imaginable item for preparing and serving all types of food and drinks. Use the fresh herbs growing on the deck!  Bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely, very comfortable and well appointed.  Best of all is the location! Very short walk to the beach, great wineries and restaurants!  We’ll be back, many times!"

"I loved my stay in this beautiful home! Smartly remodeled with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms - a rarity of space for this neighborhood! Short walk to the ocean and to shopping and restaurants. Excellent location! The kitchen is a gorgeous remodel. The windows bring in so much natural light and accentuate the serene Carmel Valley view of rolling green hills and trees. The deck is conveniently located right off the family room and allows you to enjoy the view all day - high above the neighbors - so no obstruction. The house comes with a large backyard and multiple outdoor sitting areas - a distinct advantage in this community. The street is quiet and peaceful. Highly recommend a vacation in this lovely home and neighborhood."

"Beautiful and Spotless Home in a Great Location!  This was a wonderful place to stay in Carmel.  The location is amazing.  It is walking distance to both the town and the beach.  It is located on a quiet street.  The house itself is bright, spotless and everything seems new.  The beds and sheets were luxurious. My favorite restaurant was La Bicycletta Restaurant and we also had a wonderful happy hour on the deck at Mission Ranch. I would highly recommend this beautiful home."
