The house has non-VOC paint, and only organic cleaning compounds are used on the house.
There is a water filtration system throughout the house.

Played JENGA lately? Enjoy, a great game for friends and family.... and so many more.
A flashlight is always recommended to bring.
There are no street lights in Carmel. It is very dark and very quiet.
The heater is preset to 72 day and night. This is a comfortable temperature for the house. You can adjust the heater by turning it to the off and on position or by moving the arrows up and down to the desired temperature.

There are also space heaters in the house. Please use them at your discretion. Please turn them off and unplug them when not in use, we are carbon friendly.

The massage chair is also unplugged, just plug in when you want to use it. Vampire electric use (devices not in use but display a ready light) account for 10% of electric usage.

Please get in the habit by unplugging those devices that
have this feature also at your home, save the planet one action at a time.

Great walkable neighbor hood an it is very quiet at night. Please respect your neighbors and keep the noise level down.
We are right above the Carmel Mission.

It is amazing and will lead you into down town Carmel. It is about a 20 minute walk.

From the to the Carmel River Beach and following Scenic to Carmel Beach.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Detlef was extremely friendly and helpful when we called the day before to confirm and get directions. The house was exactly what we expected and needed. Comfortable, clean, spacious, and superb access to major roads. Also, the manual is extremely thorough and helpful. Would definitely stay here again when we come back to the area.

  • Great house in a great location. Downtown Napa just a stones throw away and easy access off Highway 1 if you are doing the scenic drives in the area.
    Detlef was also very accommodating in arranging the whole rental which we really appreciated.

  • We stayed att the Carmel Charmel 4 Days in june and we loved the house. The location was perfect, near Carmel by the sea and only 10 min drive to Monterey. The beds were wonderful, we felt like lings anf queens in them, and the house was very clean and had everything we needed. We loved the garden and the jacuzzi and our teenagers really liked the big TV with netflix. If we ever travel to California again, we would be more than happy to stay there again!

  • we loved staying here! spacious, clean, comfortable, couldn't ask for anything more.

    June 2014
  • We loved every minute we spent at Detlef and Cindy's Carmel Charmer! Perfect in every way -- beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces to hang out in, convenience to sights and shopping (big mall just 5 mins away) -- just to name a few. We came from all over to attend a family wedding so got to relax and reconnect in comfort and cosiness. The house was spotless and outfitted with everything we could want. We would gladly stay here again and recommend it highly! Thank you!

  • Nice clean place. Well situated to central Carmel. Perfect for our day trips to Hearst Castle and Monteray.

    June 2014
  • Cindy and Detlef were wonderful hosts! The home is perfect for a family of 4-5. The rules were very clear. Communication--mostly by email--was always prompt and courteous. We especially loved the large back deck, which included a nice BBQ grill and fire pit. The hot tub was another plus. Everything was clean. Lots of boardgames available.

    June 2014
  • We were very pleased with the beautiful, spacious home in Carmel. It offered much more than we expected or really were able to use. There is a kitchen that is fully ready to use, just add food from the nearby Safeway. A nice laundry room would have been wonderful if we had stayed longer. The home is in very nice condition, clean and is on a very nice, very quiet street. It was easy to access downtown Carmel by car but also near access to the rest of the Monterey peninsula.

    While we did not personally meet our hosts, our contact with them via email and phone was very cordial and they were very accommodating. I really have only positive things to say about our time in this home.

    June 2014
  • Thanks for letting us stay at your place. We enjoyed the area and the nice arugula from your garden. Thanks

    June 2014
  • The location is great, no doubt about that. The house is spacious for two couples, and very airy when the windows were opened. The owner has many rules posted, as indicated on the listing under house rules. While the house was very nice, it was missing some of the amenities we have come to expect.

    Response from Detlef:

    Hello Gail, thank you very much for your comments.
    They are very much appreciated to improve the guest experience.
    We know that the signs are an issue for some guest but we have found them necessary over the past year to avoid serious plumbing issues and inconvenience to our guest.
    We are talking to our cleaning crew to make sure that supplies are replaced as they should have been.
    I am not sure why you have not been able to reach me when you called.
    We live right here in Carmel and always answer any questions and are available.
    We are sorry that you were not totally satisfied.
    Best regards, yours Detlef and Cindy

    Again thanks for pointi
