The Space

With wide extravagant views, this contemporary elegant home basks in the sun overlooking vast surrounding low-lying hills, taking in an unspoiled, peaceful landscape that seems to go on forever. This stunning home offers two cozy bedrooms, two luxurious bathrooms, and a large, fully-appointed kitchen with an adjoining breakfast/dining room surrounded by large glass windows designed to take advantage of the stunning view. The home also offers a separate wet bar, and an intimate entertaining space - complete with Carmel stone fireplace and a wrap-around, redwood deck. The comfortable meditative, sunny sitting-room, is a place to relax and read or just have a glass of wine…you will feel like the King/Queen of the Hill standing at the front door of this house!

Located in Mid-Carmel Valley, this home is situated in a quiet, elegant neighborhood just minutes away from groceries and all of the amenities that you would desire. Carmel Valley is home to several first-class golf courses and is just minutes from Carmel by the Sea, Pebble Beach, Monterey, and the world famed Laguna Seca Raceway. This is the perfect place to call home when you visit the Central Coast, and the peace and serenity may even inspire you to write that Great American novel or paint that landscape that you’ve been dreaming of.
At any rate, you will surely relax and breathe deep once you’ve arrived!

  • We absolutely loved staying at Jules' place in Carmel. The views were stunning and the house was a dream - spacious, well-decorated and well-equipped. The bedrooms were super comfortable too - really luxurious! She was also incredibly helpful and accommodating with our booking. We'd all recommend it to any one looking for a real retreat in those gorgeous hills.

  • My friends and I enjoyed our stay. The house has a great view of the valley with a large balcony. The inside is well-furnished and very clean.

    I definitely plan to stay here if I'm in the area again!

    Bonus: If you have an electric vehicle, you can easily plug into the dryer's 240V outlet for fast charging.

  • Wow! Even more beautiful than the pictures. Each room is truly spectacular and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Jules met us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the home. We cooked dinner on the BBQ and had a wonderful breakfast before. The kitchen is has plenty of dishes and cooking gadgets that you need. This home is amazing and we will tell our friends about it as well. We will certainly come back the next time we're come to Monterey/Carmel area. Check it out...you will love it too!

  • Hart's desire is beautiful. We loved our stay. Just 2 hours drive from Oakland felt like a world away. It's warm and beautiful, and the house was lovely.

  • I stayed at Harts Desire with four of my friends after a Spa day at The Refuge which was only 2 miles away! I was completely blown away with how much more beautiful it was than expected.
    The Panoramic views of Carmel Valley were breathtaking! Jules met us promptly at arrival and was VERY accommodating. She resides on the property but we had complete privacy. The furnishings, linens and decor were all high quality and so so tasteful. Everywhere we looked was another lovely piece of art. We grilled stakes and made a wonderful meal and found the kitchen to be very well equipped as well.
    I would definitely stay here again. It was the PERFECT place to take refuge after a day at the Refuge with friends!

  • I can't imagine a better place to stay. The house was beautiful, spacious and comfortable, with an incredible view. We loved having breakfast out on the deck and watching the hawks soar by. The location was convenient to everything we wanted to see and do, and the Safeway at the bottom of the hill inspired us to do more cooking than we expected. Jules was a pleasure to deal with. The only problem was that we didn't want to leave. Wish we had planned to stay longer.

  • Fabulous place with a fabulous host!!! The house has amazing view of the rolling hills of the Carmel Valley. We had a wonderful, relaxing weekend. It's truly a home away from home! Jules was the best - she even brought us logs for the fireplace when we wanted to make indoor s'mores! Highly recommend Hart's Desire!

  • My family and I had an amazing weekend vacation in Jules' hilltop home! The views of Carmel Valley, easy access to amenities, and proximity to downtown Carmel made this an ideal location for our trip. It truly felt like a home away from home as we cooked meals, napped on the porch, and played board games around the kitchen table. We have vacationed to Carmel many times, but this was by far the best trip we have had! I highly recommend Jules' home, especially to those looking to avoid the traditional "hotel" experience. You know what I am talking about, that guilty feeling when you are in the hotel room and not out and about. I did not once get that feeling during our vacation and enjoyed every second of it.
