This is CLINT EASTWOOD'S town and guests will often bump into him around town. We're a 10 min. walk to the post office, and the bungalow is situated near and overlooking the Pebble Beach Forest Conservancy. Spotting Bambi in the woods is likely, too.
ASK ABOUT OUR TWO-NIGHT SPECIAL: Book two nights and receive a discount on the nightly rate (offer good through December 2014). Let me know first before actually booking and I'll manually enter the special rate of $115/night instead of $125.
You'll find our Bungalow is . . . Simple. Comfortable. Cozy (250 sq ft) and Quiet -- plus minutes from downtown and spectacular sand beaches. Decorated with a local artist's work in addition to a few quirky collectibles, the bungalow overlooks the Pebble Beach Forest Conservancy in a quiet residential neighborhood, but you'll find yourself very close to all the Peninsula has to offer.
Want to look out on the forest? Want to watch birds whiz by with squirrels nearby? You can, yet we're so close to town, it takes 10 minutes to walk to the post office. Also, you might like to know Carmel has been voted one of the Top Ten Dog Friendly places in the country. WOOF! So, bring your dog.
Please check the CALENDAR tab above to determine whether we've been booked.
We provide a modest Continental breakfast to get you started in the morning . . . coffee, tea, fruit, yogurt and biscotti! No kitchen is available, but there is a microwave, small refrigerator, kettle, coffee pot and toaster, and dishes - ideal for take out.
You'll be located on the same property as our family home, but totally detached from the house (about 50 steps down from the parking area) and with no other guests to disturb you.
We're long-time residents, knowledgeable about the area and able to help you find some of the many unique spots guidebooks don't mention.
A third person may be accommodated on a very thick futon ($25/visit).
We are Pet Friendly and would love to entertain your beloved Fido as well. However, for those of you who have allergies, please keep in mind that Pets have been in the room previously.
If you're visiting California's central coast for the first time, you'll find Carmel and the surrounding area an idyllic haven boasting nearly 100 miles of spectacular shoreline - described as the 'greatest meeting of land and sea.' The unbridled beauty of Carmel and Monterey County's landscape and the mild, year-round weather offer endless opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Family-centered activities abound and there truly is something for everyone.
Also, check out my Guidebook. Don't miss the Mission San Antonio de Padua which sits in the Valley of the Oaks on what was once the Milpitas unit of the Hearst Ranch. Of all the missions, this is my favorite . . . partly because it is in the middle of nowhere and also because the restoration was more sensitive to the Mission's style . . . in other words, it doesn't look like Disneyland.

Along with my cat, I usually "meet and greet" guests when they arrive and my brother and I are usually around for any questions they might have. During their stay, I prefer to allow guests their privacy.
The cabin is situated in a residential neighborhood facing the Pebble Beach Forest Conservancy across from a little used road (Pescadero).
It's a 10 minute walk to town and a 20 minute walk to the beach. Bus routes are within a 5 minute walk. If you're coming by train, the train has a bus service which will drop you in Monterey where I can pick up and drop off guests.
Very peaceful and quiet location, yet easily walkable to downtown. Hosts are graceful and accommodating, seeking to make your stay enjoyable. Listing does show as having only a kitchenette, and it is small, but I would have liked to have had a slightly larger fridge, and a small sink, rather than having to wash my fruits and veggies, dishes, etc. in the bathroom sink. But, there is a reference in the listing to the effect that it's best for people eating take out food. Shelley is working on getting WiFi there, but it wasn't available during my stay. The public library took care of that need.
Great cozy place to stay as home base for hiking in Carmel Valley and Big Sur. Close enough to everything but tucked away from all the tourists.
This was our first Airbnb experience and we are happy to report that it was a very positive one. The cabin was very comfortable and centrally located yet very private. We enjoyed morning walks though the majestic trees and the interesting neighborhood. We were greeted warmly and were made to feel welcome. Our very well behaved German Shepherd loved the experience too!
What a cozy place! You really feel like in a treehouse when sitting on the little deck. It is sooooo relaxing! Shelley was very welcoming, she provided with lots of useful information on Carmel, Monterey, etc. And: there is a very nice "meet and great cat" that was a nice company when sitting outside on the deck! Thank you so much Shelley and her brother.
Had a great weekend in Carmel - this was the perfect little place to stay with our dog. Thanks Shelley!
These 2 days in Carmel were so pleasant and restful! :)
We had a great stay in the bungalow.
Very close from the town center, we just had to walk a few minutes on Dolores St to enjoy drinks.
Also, thank you Shelley for the great advice about the restaurant (Mission Ranch), we've been there on Tuesday evening, it was unforgettable! :)
Great host, great place, we'll come back for sure!
We had a great time at the treehouse. The place was in a very central location and Shelley was very accommodating. Cell service and wifi was not very good but did not matter much.
It was so nice to be greeted by the host Shelley. Upon our arrival she graciously provided us with advice on restaurants, sight seeing, and making our way around the Monterey/Carmel area. This was our first time to the area so we needed a lil guidance ;) As soon as we stepped into the cabin we felt at home. It's very cozy and quaint. There are some steps to access the cabin as you walk through a beautiful garden. The cabin is secluded by trees with its own private entrance. The views of the skyline are beautiful too. We will definitely consider staying here again if we ever visit the area. Best thing was being able to bring the dogs and have all of my little family together. This was a great stay. Thanks for a wonder birthday weekend.
This was a wonderful place! It really did feel like you were in a treehouse. It is conveniently located near the main street area of carmel...a mere 10 mins walk away! Shelley was a great hostess: warm, welcoming and very helpful. Overall, it was a terrific experience!
This place is great. The treehouse was a perfect place.
