About this listing
Up the hill, at the end of the road, my home is quiet. I am close to the coast and away from the fog.
Stars, big sun & inland sea breezes = everyday. Big Sur, Carmel, Mntry Bay Aquarium, Pacific Grove, Tassajara, etc. are all around the corner...
One of the most dramatic views in Carmel Valley! 15 minutes from Hwy. 1. Close enough to access everything we love, and also on a quiet mountainside away from traffic.
Super sunny (south facing) exposure with views for miles. A private bedroom and bathroom are available for you in my home. It has a queen bed, large closet and plenty of windows. You will have covered parking and use of the kitchen, washer and dryer, refrigerator, etc. My home is extremely private yet only 2 minutes from Carmel Valley Village where there is fine dining, 27 regional wine tasting rooms, shopping, etc. I am 15 minutes to Carmel-by-the-sea, 20 minutes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, 30 minutes from the Big Sur area, and 20 minutes to Point Lobos.
The benefits of staying in Carmel Valley are that we typically live free from the fog that can cool down the Monterey Bay very quickly. Stars are very bright here at night. Plenty of wildlife move through the property, which is full of mature oak trees. This is a special place that I am sure you will enjoy.
Being a local to the area, I am happy to give suggestions on dining, private beaches, beautiful drives, and general tourist information.
You will have a private bedroom with bathroom and shower. I have a washing machine and dryer that I make available to you. (If you are doing a large amount of cleaning I ask that you provide your own laundry detergent). You are welcome to cook in my kitchen and use my stemware, pots and pans, etc. I have a covered parking garage for your vehicle and have basic tools if you need to do minor repairs or upkeep on bicycles, your vehicle, or whatnot. In the winter months, I can make a fire outside with the chiminea. It's a nice way to spend the evening under the stars. My home is very nice and also very casual - user friendly
Interaction with Guests
I am very happy to share information about the area, or light the fire and share a glass of wine. If you seek privacy and less interaction, I can provide that as well...
Quiet and secluded yet only 12 miles to the Pacific Coast Highway.
There is a bus stop 5 minutes walk from my house. $ 2.25 will get you to Carmel or Monterey. You can walk to the village in minutes...with some traffic for 100 yards...
Other Things to Note
Prior to traveling to my home, it is best to review your **itinerary** in the Air B & B site as this is where I have posted detailed driving instructions. As I am in the country a bit, my instructions will make your arrival a breeze.
I expect that you enjoy yourselves...
I am an outgoing man who enjoys travelling. I have lived in Denmark for over a year, traveled all of Europe and some of Russia. I have explored much of Mexico, Canada and Central America. I speak some Spanish, German and Danish. Having grown up here on the Monterey Bay, I am familiar with all the touristy and less touristy spots. I have an affinity for Big Sur and am down the coast visiting friends there when I can get away for a day or two. I am an easy going person that loves to have travelers flow through me when I am not able to pack my bags and travel myself!
