Welcome to Chateau Sur Le Mer! This beautiful home was constructed by one of Carmel-by-the-Sea's most well known builders along with the best designers, artisans and craftsmen. It is truly a brilliant treasure. The home is wonderfully located and is only a few blocks from the heart of downtown Carmel and @ 11 blocks to the sea.
The space is romantic indoors and out and is ideal for a that special one-on-one getaway. At the same time, the home can accommodate up to six guests, so it is also ideal for a small family or couple's excursion.
The kitchen is world-class, equipped with a custom built-in "armoire" refrigerator, gas range, wine storage, warming drawer, etc., as well as a cozy breakfast nook with fireplace to enjoy your morning meal or cafe'.
The master bedroom is upstairs for privacy and is equipped with an oversized jetted tub, deluge shower, walk-in closet, California king bed and in-suite fireplace.
Downstairs, you will find two additional small bedrooms and one bathroom as well as a gorgeous dining room and living room with cozy seating and a gas fireplace.
In addition, there is a fabulous rear patio and lawn area with gas wood-burning fireplace, perfect for lounging, reading or simply enjoying an early evening glass of wine and cheese.
Another thing that makes this home so special is it's proximity to everything in downtown Carmel. Carmel is all about long strolls and scenic views. Step out the front door and explore. Within a few minutes, you'll be in the heart of downtown or take a longer walk and head to the beach (about 15 minutes). There are a plethora of award-winning restaurants, cafe's, pubs, boutiques, antique shops and more...
*On a more personal note - This is our 2nd home. We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and have enjoyed many memorable moments in this home with our family. We will only make this home available two weeks out of the month. It was difficult for us to finally decide to rent this home out and so we ask that you please treat it like it is your own home while you're here. I think you'll find it to be as special as we have upon your stay. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
**Pricing is not negotiable.
Absolutely no pets and no smoking permitted. Use of garage is not permitted.
Petit Chateau Sur La Mer certainly lives up to its name. Charming as a turn of the century Carmel stone cottage, filled with the comforts and amenities of a new home- fit for a Ritz Carlton.
Todd and his family have a wonderful home for visitors to experience all of what Carmel by the Sea has to offer. Fully stocked with necessary items for a comfortable stay, quaint outdoor courtyard and wonderfully clean. Excellent communication from the owners, available for any questions or concerns.
Absolutely an annual visit in the future!
We were incredibly satisfied with this beautiful home in a really charming part of Carmel that we had never visited before (still just a few blocks from the familiar downtown). Like many homes in Carmel, it was impeccably done with many attractive and up-to-date rooms with all the amenities one could hope for. The kitchen was spacious with high-quality appliances, the living room had tons of light and since we were traveling with a baby, we really appreciated that the downstair rooms could be made very dark. The patio with a fireplace on the side of the house was a really scenic and relaxing place to hang out and the house was professionally wired with a great TV and audio set up (though WiFi was weak, which Todd said he'll look into). We enjoyed walking around this neighborhood even more than walking around downtown. It feels so rustic and all the surrounding homes are also really charming.
I'd highly recommend this home for anyone looking to stay in the Carmel, Monterey or Big Sur area.
We found the home to be very charming and in great condition. The location was perfect for access to shopping in Carmel and the beach. The beach is a bit of a walk but we loved walking down Ocean Avenue in the morning for a stroll on the beach. We would love to come back and visit here again! The weather couldn't have been more perfect! I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family. Thank you Todd for sharing your home with us.
We had a fabulous time in Carmel at Todd's beautiful place. Todd was extremely responsive to any request. We would definitely stay there again.
We highly rate both Petit Chateau Sure Le Mer and its owner Todd. The house itself was awesome, everything we needed and more. Additionally, Todd did everything we asked and more to ensure our time in Carmel was enjoyable. Potential renters will not go wrong having Todd as a host, and his home as a base to explore all this part of California has to offer.
