Description

Welcome to “Sea La Vie”! Sleeps 6

A pristine Carmel cottage with an inner courtyard for privacy, as well as beautifully renovated interiors that combine modern conveniences with vintage charm, is just steps away from shopping, dining and entertainment in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea.

The 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath home is perfect for two couples or a family getaway, with whitewashed vaulted ceilings, skylights and large windows that let in plenty of natural light, and easy-care hardwood-style floors. Heated floors and towel warmers can be found in each of the three bathrooms, and all three bedrooms have HDTVs in addition to one in the living room.

Coastal-themed art by local Carmel artists enhances the French country décor in tones of white, gray and blue, with designer touches and vintage furnishings throughout. The pet-friendly home (for well-behaved dogs only) features a fully fenced yard with multiple outdoor seating areas, including a back deck with a patio table, lounge chairs and grill.

Besides being just a 5-minute walk from downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, the home is only a few minutes’ drive from the beach. It’s also a short drive to monarch butterfly sightings in Pacific Grove, Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row. Downtown Monterey, Carmel and golfing in Pebble Beach are 10 minutes away by car, and other attractions within a half hour’s drive are the natural wonders of Big Sur and wine tasting and dining in Carmel Valley Village.

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 beach towels as well as spa amenities and robes in the bathrooms.

A flagstone path beneath graceful live oak trees leads to the front door, where guests enter into the home’s main hallway. The living room features a comfortable seating area around the wood-burning Carmel stone fireplace with gas start, a perfect place to relax while enjoying a good book or watching the 46-inch HDTV. A well-cushioned window seat looks out at the back deck area, which can be accessed from the living room. The deck features patio seating and a gas grill.

The adjacent kitchen features a restored Wedgewood gas stove, along with two Shaws sinks, vintage light fixtures, marble countertops and backsplash, and a high-end Liebherr refrigerator. The kitchen leads into a greenhouse-style dining room with high-backed chairs for 6 at a vintage-style table under a crystal chandelier.

On the other side of the kitchen is a half-bath with a beautifully carved quartz sink with ornate mirror. Next to that is a sitting room with a full/double sofa sleeper with foam topper, recommended for overnight or short-term guests, and an en suite bathroom that includes a shower with custom tile and glass door.

Further down the hallway is a washer and dryer hidden behind sliding doors. A second guest bedroom offers a unique skylight, a queen bed, and a door that leads to the front courtyard. An en suite bathroom has a shower with custom tile and built-in seat.

A flight of stairs leads to the main bedroom on the second floor, which features natural light through skylights and glimpses of the bay through the windows. This room has a gas fireplace as well as a private deck with a lounge chair. An enormous en suite bathroom and dressing area, which includes both a vintage clawfoot tub and a new shower that’s large enough for two, all with treetop views, complements a makeup vanity area and a walk-in closet.

Parking for two vehicles is available in the driveway.
