About this listing
Relax in this master suite on a 5-acre gentleman's ranch nestled in Carmel Valley -- private bath, wifi, fridge, coffee maker. Room for 2 - highly-comfy queen bed with desk area. A short drive to the beach, Carmel, Big Sur, and Pebble Beach.
Come and enjoy this spacious multi-acre retreat. Clean, quiet, private suite with bathroom - comfy queen bed, desk, small refrigerator, and nature views. Plenty of safe parking and wifi is provided. There is a Keurig coffee maker with plenty of coffee-tea-hot chocolate.
Extra Bed: We can accommodate one additional guest (beyond 2) in this large bedroom/bath suite with two expansion options. The first option is a single-bed mattress that can be brought into the room and makes into a bed for a child or “flexible” adult. The second option is a queen bed (see photo) in our basement living area. The extra queen bed is not always available, so please ask if you’re looking for this specific arrangement.
Now that the kids are out of the house we rattle around with bedrooms to spare and we'd like to share all this space with you while you enjoy this little piece of heaven we get to call home. We do enjoy our animals, which include a small mixed breed dachshund, a chinchilla, and five cats who roam the property outside, but not inside.
Note this is a country setting, and on occasion the local wildlife may provide some added ambiance to your stay, including bullfrogs croaking and owls hooting during the night.
Typically we will be home, but if there is a need a key will be provided to come and go.
Interaction with Guests
We are here to greet you and send you on your way at the end of your visit. The available bedroom space is on the opposite end of the house from the main living space and therefore you can expect limited interaction with us. There is a second bedroom available to airbnb guests so there is a possibility of seeing them.
We are privileged to live in this country retreat, four miles from the village of Carmel-by-the-Sea and seven miles from Carmel Valley Village. This multi-acre property includes pepper, redwood and palm trees along with flower gardens and a pond.
The MST bus service does service Carmel Valley Road on their Grapevine route. A bus stop is walking distance from our residence.
Other Things to Note
Packaged snacks and a coffee maker are provided for your convenience.
Since we do have animals it is important that if you do have pet-related allergies that you take this into consideration. The dog does spend time in the house but the cats are primarily outside or in their special space in the garage.
Guests may check in after 5:00pm and should plan to check out by 10:00am unless alternative arrangements are made. If you need an earlier check in time, please share this detail when you make your reservation.
Guests are asked to curtail making any loud noises and playing music after 10:00pm.
We allow light take out meals to be brought into the room but we do not allow cooking in the room and there is no access to kitchen facilities or utensils.
Pets may be allowed, but not without advance permission. An additional $20 pet fee will be collected at the time of check-in.
Access to the kitchen and other portions of the house are not included.
Lovely lovely stay. Marcy and Rob were easy-going delightful hosts. The pond view was serene and I enjoyed the most deep incredible sleep! Thank you!
Loved how Marcy and Rob greeted us when we came and saw us off when we left! Felt like a non commercialized visit! The house was nicely decorated and felt homey. Will definitely recommend their stay to any friends thinking of going to Carmel!
Marcy was very responsive leading up to our arrival and lovely to deal with throughout. The room was super clean and bright and the property was beautiful -- it exceeded expectations and truly felt like a luxurious B&B retreat!
Really welcoming hosts and really friendly! Clean room and we'd recommend them to anyonr. Thanks for our stay!
The picture of our bedroom at Marcy's doesn't do it justice. It's a super comfortable, very large and beautiful space. We loved the views from our window from which we watched transfixed while a heron stalked fish in their garden pond! The Rustads have thought of everything from the pentiful fluffy white towels, to the coffee maker and bottles of water and coke in a mini fridge. Staying with them is indeed, as another reviewer has described, akin to a five star experience. Marcy was warm and hospitable whilst at the time not overly intrusive or 'hands on.'
Marcy and her husband were very welcoming and accommodating hosts. Their home is so quaint and picturesque, and the room was setup with everything we needed. It was an unexpected surprise to be in such a beautiful space and location a few miles away from downtown Carmel. I wish we could have stayed longer, but it was perfect for the night.

About the Host, Marcy
My husband and I live in Carmel Valley with our various pets and the wild critters that enjoy our country setting close to both Carmel-by-the-Sea and the quaint Carmel Valley Village. My husband and I are both consultants and are blessed to be able to work from home offices. I enjoy cooking, hiking, gardening and meeting new people.
