Very large studio-type room with bathroom upstairs, so completely private. The room has a private deck, overlooking the back yard. The private bathroom has a shower. The antique bed is full size (double) and is high, so I've provided a little stool for those who need a boost! There is also an easy chair for you to lounge in while watching TV, a charging station for computers/cell phones, and a table and chairs. There is a little mini-kitchenette with a microwave, toaster oven, and refrigerator.
Premium channels (HBO, Showtime, etc) are available in the room as well as a Roku box to access Netflix.
All races, religions, and sexual orientations welcome.
(Note: if you stayed with me before, you were probably in the small room downstairs, but I've switched now to the large upstairs room!)
House is down the street from the Mission and about 1 mile from Carmel's main street--Ocean Avenue. This is a very safe area. I'll provide breakfast, and you can use the kitchen if you like. Crossroads and Barnyard shopping areas are within walking distance with lots of restaurants.
House comes equipped with two dogs (small) and 3 cats, so if you hate animals, this is not the place. I'm a writer, so I work at home.
There is a bus stop within walking distance, and I don't mind picking people up and dropping them off. I'm pretty easy. The AmTrak bus stop in Carmel is about a block and a half from my house.
What makes my place unique?? Well, it's a great place for the price! LOL. I do charge $10 extra for a second guest--so the room is $80 for two people.
Please note, I'll try to respond quickly, but I work at a free clinic on Wednesday evenings and am away from about 4:30 to 8 PM, so if you contact me on Wednesday evenings, you may get a delayed answer.
Wanda is a very great host, the house is lovingly as she is :) Her breakfast is fantastic, you will miss nothing in her house and her cookies are outstanding. She thinks of everything you need and if you want you can have great conversation with her, she has great humor :) We will come back for sure :)
Wanda's place was lovely. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. Our bed was very comfortable. There were lots of nice touches in our room. We were close to Carmel which was a big plus. Wanda is a very nice person. Fun to talk with and we felt really comfortable here. She made us a great breakfast in the morning which we were not expecting! We will be back again and again. We loved her pups. Thank you Wanda!
We enjoyed staying with Wanda very much. The bedroom and en suite were beautifully fitted out, and the bed very comfortable. It was also very clean. Breakfast was splendid, and Wanda was a treat to chat with. We would definitely stay again.
Wanda and her place were everything we needed after a horrible day someplace else. She is a warm and friendly person and her room is huge and comfortable, ready for you to relax and feel at home. We arrived very late and exhausted and Wanda quickly fixed us some delicious eggs on toast. And the morning breakfast, oh my, from yoghurt to fresh fruit to eggs and sausages, all homemade and absolutely yummy. She is a very interesting person to talk to and we totally recommend you to stay at her place. We were only passing and stayed one night, unfortunately, but would go back there in a heartbeat. //
Wanda y su casa fueron justo lo que necesitábamos después de haber pasado un día horrible en otra ciudad. Ella es una prrsona cálida y amigable, y la habitación es enorme y cómoda, donde uno puede relajarse y sentirae como en casa de inmediato. Llegamos muy tarde y enseguida Wanda se ofreció a prepararnos unos huevos revueltos para cenar. ¡Y el desayuno! Yogur, frutas frescas, huevos y salchichas, todo casero y delicioso. Wanda es una persona muy interesante, con la que se puede hablar largo y tendido, e híper recomendable como anfitriona. Nosotros estábamos de paso y lamentablemente solo nos quedamos una noche, pero volveríamos sin dudarlo.
Wanda is a very friendly and thoughtful host. She adds those little touches to make sure you have everything you need or want in order to have a nice and comfortable stay. I received a warm welcome with fresh baked cookies and given the grand tour of the room and it's amenities which include microwave, refrigerator, iron/board, extra pillows, blankets, etc., private bathroom equipped with towels television with cable and/or Roku, and even some little snacks, tea and coffee and little coffeemaker. Additionally, Wanda provides breakfast, which is really nice. The room is on the opposite end of the home from where she stays, so it is completely private. As she mentions, she does have 2 dogs and 3 cats and since you enter your room through the main door, if you are allergic or do not like animals, this place is not for you, though the animals do not come into the apartment at all. I enjoyed talking with Wanda and appreciated her helpfulness. Great place to stay in Carmel.
Wanda and her apartment were fantastic! She has it very clean, and well prepared for whatever you may need! I slept like a baby, and then woke to her having a huge breakfast of everything I could want! I enjoyed good conversations over breakfast and great insights for things to do in the area. Her place is in a great location for whatever direction you are going in. You can't do better than this for the money! Would do it all over again! Mahalo Wanda for being such a great host!
My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Wanda's house. She was upbeat and very gracious, and the space was comfortable, clean, and just as pictured. We would definitely stay there again (and again) on our return travels to the area.
Wanda is a great host. She is very hospitable and friendly. She provided us a great room with accommodations. The location of her place is at a prime spot - the center of everything great in Carmel. You're not so far from the Carmel Mission and downtown Carmel, and you're 2 miles from Point Lobos, a great place to hike. Spencer and I enjoyed her coffee and breakfast of fresh fruits, scrambled eggs, toasted english muffins, and sausages. Her two dogs and cats were simply adorable and fun to play with. I would definitely book a room with her when I come back to Carmel! I highly recommend her spot!
My Mom and I had a wonderful time at Wandas place! The room is beautiful and I has everything you need. A closet, a nice bathroom, a comfy bed and a little kitchenette. Wanda decorated everything very nicely, so it feels like a second home. In fact my Mom didn't want to leave at all. Wanda really makes you feel at home and she serves a delicious breakfast with fruits, yogurt, eggs and coffee. I will definitely come back here when I am in the Carmel / Monterey area!
What an excellent stay with Wanda in Carmel! First off, she's very nice and friendly, and the breakfast each morning was excellent. Second, the room was gorgeous, with lots of light and space and an extremely comfortable bed. Lots of privacy, quiet, and close to some truly beautiful areas. Can't recommend it enough!
