Description

Welcome to “Sea Salt & Caramel”! Home sleeps up to 6 adults and 2 children.

A newly renovated Carmel-by-the-Sea cottage offers room to spread out and enjoy peace and quiet in a tree-lined neighborhood, framed by beautiful vistas of the nearby Santa Lucia Mountains, yet it’s conveniently located near shopping, dining and two Carmel beaches.

The four-bedroom, 3.5-bath home offers a unique floor plan and a fully fenced yard. Views from the main floor and deck include sweeping vistas of beautiful Carmel Valley, Fish Ranch, and the bordering mountains.

This 1,700-square-foot residence is conveniently located within a 7 minute walk to two Carmel beaches. It is also just a 3 minute walk to the famous Carmel Mission Basilica Museum and to Carmel Mission Ranch where you can enjoy appetizers, dinner or Sunday brunch with an ocean and pasture view of grazing sheep. Downtown Carmel is an easy 10 minute walk passing wine tasting rooms, restaurants, galleries, Nielsen’s gourmet deli and the Sunset Center. Point Lobos State Natural Reserve hiking area is just a five minute drive from the house. Ten minutes by car you will find popular attractions such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row and Asilomar, and half an hour from Big Sur and Bixby bridge. It is also near golfing and sightseeing in Pebble Beach®.

Upon your arrival, you will be greeted with complimentary cheese and wine or sparkling cider, wine tasting passes 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, as well as spa robes, and beach gear with everything you need for a day at the beach, including chairs, blankets, towels, umbrella and cooler.

Spring is present all year long in this home, starting from the cheerful front door and porch adorned with colorful flower boxes greeting guests as they enter, first through the living room, which has a spacious feel from whitewashed vaulted ceiling, in addition to comfortable seating and a 55 inch HDTV. Just beyond are views of the nearby mountains through large windows or from the upper deck, which has patio seating and a gourmet gas grill.

The gourmet kitchen features seating around a built-in table with Cambria quartz countertops, white custom cabinetry, and high-end Wolf appliances with plenty of storage space, built-in seating for meals and a window seat overlooking the garden. A pullout faucet and deep sink complement a gas cooktop, wall oven, microwave and high-tech refrigerator. A Keurig coffee and tea maker is also available.

Around the corner is a half-bath/laundry room with washer and dryer, and down the hall is the master bedroom suite, complete with a gas fireplace, Cal King bed with romantic chic coverlet, and en suite bath with gold fixtures. The bathroom includes a cedar-lined closet area, a wall-mounted shaving mirror, dual sinks, quartz countertops and marble tile in the shower.

Also on this level is a nearby bedroom with a twin bed and denim decor. Just a few steps up, another bedroom offers a queen bed with a wooden headboard, dual closets and en suite bath with a shower and white tile with floral accents.
Downstairs, a small library under the stairs is available as well as a TV room perfect for hanging out and watching the 50 inch HDTV; the stylish sofa here converts to a queen sleeper as needed.

An adjacent bedroom features a Cal King bed and full bath. French patio doors lead from the TV room and from the bedroom to the backyard garden, where there are flagstone paths, a patio with comfortable seating, and a meditation area.

Parking for two vehicles is available in the driveway. An electric vehicle charging port is available upon request. Well-behaved small dogs will be allowed on owner’s approval.

Guests stayed in april 2019 ~ Reviewed on HomeAway ~ 5 of 5 Stars!

"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."
