About this listing
Private room for 2 surrounded by nature and hills on a 5-acre gentleman's ranch -- wifi, fridge, and coffee maker. Includes comfy queen bed and desk. A short drive to the beach, Carmel, Big Sur, and Pebble Beach.
Come and enjoy this spacious multi-acre retreat. Clean, quiet, private room with 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) using this room/bathroom combination - the extra bed is a queen bed in our basement living area (see photo). The extra queen bed is not always available, so please ask if you’re looking for this specific option.
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 an elderly border collie, a small mixed breed dachshund, a chinchilla, and five cats that roam the property to help control the critters we prefer to keep out of the house.
Note this is a country setting, and on occasion the local wildlife may provide some added ambiance to your stay, including bullfrogs croaking and fighting raccoons 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 one additional bedroom on this end of the house available for airbnb guests so there may be a chance 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 dogs do 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.
Driving from the ocean looking east, our house is nestled in Carmel Valley along the Carmel River with rolling hills on the south and north of our property -- far enough from the fog but close to all area sites -- 4 miles from the coast/Hwy 1.
