Carmel-by-the-Sea is a quaint and charming village located on Carmel Bay, just 70 miles from San Jose and 120 miles from San Francisco. This picturesque town is nestled in a pine forest above a spectacular white sand beach. Carmel exudes a European ambience where you can stroll through winding streets, secluded alleyways, courtyards and arcades. The commercial center of town is highlighted with over 90 art galleries, numerous antique shops, hundreds of boutiques, small cafes and a broad array of restaurants. For history buffs, the Carmel area offers the Carmel Mission and Museum, dating back to 1771, as well as the National Steinbeck Center and Cannery Row.
Shopping for unique apparel and gifts is widely available in town and in a number of adjacent venues just off Highway One a few miles to the south. Also nearby is Carmel Valley, home of many vineyards producing world-class wines.
Outdoor activities abound with miles of pine and cypress lined trails, for hiking, jogging, horseback riding and bicycling. The ocean offers opportunity to kayak, sail or scuba dive in nearby Monterey Bay. Seasonal whale watching is also a popular pastime.
Adjacent to Carmel-by-the-Sea are the world famous Pebble Beach Golf Links and 17 Mile Drive, a magnificent scenic road, lined by lavish mansions, a cypress forest and gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean. Just 26 miles to the south is Big Sur and the Ventana wilderness area and 3 miles south of Carmel is Point Lobos State Reserve, known as “the greatest meeting of land and sea in the world.”
For over 100 years, Carmel has been a Mecca for artists, writers, actors and playwrights who have made this village an intellectual and cultural oasis. In this tradition, Carmel-by-the-Sea hosts numerous events, such as the Carmel Art, Bach and Shakespeare Festivals and the world famous automotive Concours de Elegance.

“This house was even better than the photos looked. It is a wonderful layout (master suite on 2nd floor, large bathroom and closet with 2 rooms on first floor and large open kitchen). 2 blocks from the heart of downtown and 6 blocks from the beach (short walk, no need to move your car). We will hopefully come back a few times a year!”

“This house is a gem! The layout, decor and amenities are all fabulous for a family of 4 with two young kids and a grandmother. The location is perfect – a quick walk to all the great restaurants and shops and a nice workout coming back up the hill from a walk along Scenic Drive. The King Suite is beautifully appointed with a fireplace and french doors and a lovely bathroom with lots of light. The Study with the trundle bed was perfect for the kids to share and they loved looking out the bay window and wishing on the ...

“An amazing home with lots of space for our family of four. The home was clean, well maintained, and in a wonderful neighborhood only a five minute walk to excellent restaurants, shops, markets and a short walk to the Carmel Beach. We also walked to the Carmel River State Park Beach along the amazing Scenic Drive every morning. The home and kitchen are equipped with everything you might need; a lovely back patio was a favorite place for a cup of coffee in the morning or glass wine before dinner. The beds were very comfortable. You can hear the ocean ...

“We have stayed here twice; with two other couples. It is clean, roomy, and the perfect location to downtown restaurants and shopping. You can even hear the ocean from the upstairs room. It is a true gem! We highly recommend.”

“Location just south of downtown Carmel is excellent for walking to shops, restaurants and the ocean. The house has everything needed to truly make yourself at home. The three sleeping areas are separate from each other providing privacy for all. Looking forward to a return visit!”

“Our family stayed at this lovely, well appointed home last week. It was perfect in every way -great location(close to town but far enough away that it was quiet), a short walk to the beautiful Carmel beach, bright, beautifully decorated, well stocked kitchen with all the necessary tools and dishes etc, private patio and grill, books, tv, stereo and games! We had a wonderful time together in this fabulous home. The owner was easy to work with and responded quickly to emails. We would highly recommend staying here!”

“ This is a lovely home that was just right for our family of five. It’s located a few blocks from the town and Carmel Bay. We walked everywhere–it’s safe and beautiful. The house is cozy, well appointed and well maintained; and all the beds are comfortable. We especially enjoyed the living area, where every evening we had cocktails by the fireplace and then walked to dinner in town. The owners are very nice and easy to work with. They got back to us right away when we sent an inquiry about renting. Everything went like clockwork. We highly recommend ...

“ Absolutely loved this charming house. Awesome location a very short walk to town and and Carmel’s beautiful beaches. We stayed for 6 nights with my husband and his parents. The master is stairs and the guest room with a queen was downstairs. Each had it’s own private bath. The home was clean and comfortably decorated. The kitchen is very well equipped for anyone who enjoys cooking. We cooked a few nights, lit the fire and just relaxed. There is a Weber we used one night for grilling and a round table and chairs if it is warm enough to ...
