We had a fantastic time again! This time we visited with our 10 month old daughter. Just enough space for the little one and the dog. Thank you again Sylvia and Tim!
We stay two nights in Carmel and it felt like home. Sylvia and Tim are really lovely and kind people! they welcome us and show us the guest house, they prepare us maps and even sat with us to tell all the things and places that we could see in Carmel. The guest house is lovely! Everything was exactly as shown in the pictures, perfectly clean and even with coffee, tea, snacks, water and chocolates! We really enjoyed our stay at Carmel and i'm sure we will come back and stay at Sylvia and Tim's guest house! Thanks!!
It's great experience to stay with Sylvia in Carmel, she prepared local map and some of broachers for us. I like the design and decoration of their house, beautiful garden!
Sylvia was a really great host. She has a great home and was extremely welcoming upon arrival.
The unit is very nice and completely separate from the main home. There is a nice patio right outside the apartment which was a great place to sit outside with the dogs and plan the day in Carmel.
My husband and I travel a lot and every once in a while we meet a host that really knows what they're doing. Sylvia is that person....welcoming, thoughtful, generous, conscientious, unobtrusive. And our cosy little studio reflected all that as well. There was everything there that we needed to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable.
Sylvia could teach "how to be a great airbnb host" to the masses. There's nothing that was lacking in our stay. Both Sylvia and Tim were welcoming and available without being intrusive in any way. They are grounded, interesting, happy people and their knowledge of the area was super helpful. The little touches in the studio, from yummy healthy snacks, a stocked fridge, wonderful coffee -- honestly it was our best airbnb experience yet.
Sylvia was AMAZING, so welcoming, so incredibly helpful. We had a wonderful stay and the studio was charming. It was perfect for our weekend getaway. Everything was so clean, cozy, and impeccably laid out. They really have made the most of the space and have thought through everything to provide guests with an incredibly relaxing time. The neighborhood was so quiet and beautiful and we walked EVERYWHERE. I highly, highly recommend, Carmel is so gorgeous and this is the perfect place to stay. We will definitely be back.
Lucky long time, full time residents of beautiful Carmel. Retired art gallery owner partnered with a retired custom home builder. Between us we've lived here for over 50 years and wouldn't think of living anywhere else. But...we love to travel too. This photo was taken in 2009 along the Tuscan coast when we hiked the entire Cinqueterre.
Having the free time and knowing what a destination Carmel is, we have begun a little business as vacation rental hosts. This sweet studio is our first offering and we're excited to offer visitors a chance to live like locals without having to spend a small fortune to be here.
