Family holiday paradise/retreat.
What a breathtaking home...so lovely and made even more wonderful by Claire & Mark. I only wish I could have spent more time here. I would most definitely visit again.
This place is really awesome. The view took us by complete surprise. There are three bedrooms in the house. Each of them have a beautiful view. The biggest bedroom is pretty spectacular though. Perfect for a romantic getaway.
The house was spotless and very well equipped. I highly recommend renting the whole house when you are a large group of people. Mark was there to receive us. He was really warm and made us feel at home right away. We had some great conversations with him. The delicious breakfast he made us in the morning was the cherry on top.
The location is 25mins away from Carmel. If you are looking for some quiet time, this place is perfect. Next time I wouldn't mind just staying put in the beautiful house.
Wonderful hosts and stay!!!
Although my time was limited at Timshel, Mark and Claire were fantastic hosts. I enjoyed riveting conversation, stunning views and gourmet breakfasts. I highly recommend staying there.
We had a great stay at Timshel with Claire and Mark. From the outset they were extremely accommodating from our evening arrival time through to the rather early breakfast we asked for (which was absolutely delicious) . The house and location is stunning, the rooms are perfect size and very comfortable with everything you need - even a chilled bottle of white wine was there waiting for us! Based on Claire and Marks recommendation we decided to spend more time exploring the immediate location at Moss Landing and Elkhorn Slough, which was the highlight of our trip! Sure you can go to Monterey Aquarium and see some beautiful creatures, but you can see seals, sea lions, sea otters and an abundance of bird life right there in the wild from your kayak...it was an experience to remember. We will definitely be recommending Timshel and would love to visit again ourselves sometime.
We actually spent Christmas at Timshell with Mark, Clare and their gorgeous family.. We were travelling up Highway 1 during the Christmas holidays and arrived at Timshell on Christmas eve - rather naughty of us, but Mark and Claire had assured us that it would totally fine to do so. Right from the off, Mark and Claire were the most incredible hosts....they sweetly had put presents under the tree for us and our two little boys and even invited us for Christmas dinner! We had a wonderful time with them! Many reviewers have remarked on the incredible breakfasts.... Christmas dinner was outstanding!! Our children at one point were convinced that Mark, Claire and their sons were our long lost cousins, such was the welcome that we received!!!! Thank you guys!!!!
If you are thinking about staying at Timshel, do it! With a wonderful house and accommodations, with an incredible location, with purely fantastic scenery (including the stars at night), you could not ask for a better place to stay. Add to all that the incredible hospitality provided by Mark and Claire — who are absolutely fantastic hosts with an eye for detail (including everything you need to make tea in the spacious bathroom!), who serve terrific breakfasts, who are great conversationalists, and who have three delightful and welcoming children — and you have the ultimate bed and breakfast experience. My two traveling companions and I enjoyed our stay immensely. Mark and Claire really have something special going here. Any stay in the Monterey area should include a stay at Timshel.
As a side note: While I have stayed at several bed and breakfast places before, this is my first AirBnB stay. By any measure, this was my favorite bed and breakfast experience. I will definitely stay there again.
We loved our stay at Timshel and in the Luxury Oak suite. Mark and Claire are delightful, the views are stunning, the house is luxurious and comfortable, and the breakfasts are superb.
Wenn Mark Frühstück zubereitet freut sich der Gaumen, lecker! Timshel ist ein großartiges Anwesen, die Räumlichkeiten sind großzügig und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Vom gemütlichen Sessel aus haben wir die Tierwelt Kaliforniens auf der Terasse beobachten können.
Ich hatte meinen eigenen Balkon mit Blick auf die Monterey-Bay, großartig, ob Sonne oder Nebel!
Leider habe ich die Yoga-Stunde mit Claire verpasst...
Mark war besonders hilfsbereit als es für mich Probleme gab wegen einer neuen Unterkunft.
Vielen Dank an euch beide :-) ich habe den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und empfehle Timshel bedingungslos weiter!
My husband and I, both in our 70's live near Timshel, but were unaware of it's existence until we found it on airbnb.
We decided to spend our third wedding anniversary there, and what a decision that was!
Previous reviewers have said all that could be said about Mark and Claire as hosts, the views, Marks incredible breakfasts and conversational skills, the wonderful ambience and beauty of Timshel, information shared about this subtle and lovely area, and much more, all in the most glowing of terms
What we would say, is that we think no matter what your hopes and dreams, whatever your unspoken needs, you will find what you seek, here.
