About this listing

Relax in a 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. Extra people possible -- see notes. A short drive to Carmel, Big Sur, and Pebble Beach.

The space

Come and enjoy this spacious multi-acre retreat. Clean, quiet, private suite with attached bathroom -- comfy queen bed, desk, small refrigerator -- views hills and backyard pond . Plenty of safe parking and wifi are provided. There is a Keurig coffee maker with plenty of coffee-tea-hot chocolate.

Please note, a 2-person reservation normally assumes 2 people sleeping in the same primary queen bed. In the Bright Suite room we can bring in a single mattress to accommodate separate beds for 2 people.

Even though the listing may say 3 beds, extra lower-level beds and space are only available for reservations of 3 or more.

Extra-People-Beds-Space - Subject to Availability

Expansion Option #1 - this room does have enough room to bring in a single bed mattress. This works best for a single child who wants to sleep in the room with mom and dad. This option is always available for a third person.

Expansion Option #2 - We have a lower-level expansion area (on a different floor) that can be used to provide more beds and space. Our expansion area consists of a separate bedroom (1 queen bed + 1 single bed) and a common area with a 50” TV and a large sofa. The sofa also turns into a bed, but the other beds are more comfy.

Please note, guests staying in the expansion area will be required to use the private bath of the Bright Carmel Suite if there are guests staying our other Comfy Bed room.

The extra space is not always available if we have guests of our own or if other Airbnb guests have it reserved. Because Airbnb doesn’t provide the ability to publish variable occupancy capacity it may not be available when you send an inquiry. The only way to to know if it is available is to request room for an additional 3rd or 4th person when you send an inquiry or reservation request. It is possible, in certain situations, to accommodate more than 4 people but this is, again, only on a case-by-case basis based on availability.

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 frogs croaking and owls hooting during the night.

Guest access

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.

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.

Absolutely welcoming and excellent recommendations on what to explore in the local area. My girlfriend and I spent one night as we were exploring the Big Sur / Monterey area. The house is excellently maintained and the garden / backyard really cute. We had a bottle of wine there in the evening. Would absolutely return! Thanks Marcy!

Marcy was out and about during our short stay, but we met Rob who was very welcoming! The home is beautiful and we loved the art, which some of it happen to be made by Rob's mother! Beds were very comfortable and we all slept well. Can't wait to stay here again!

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.
