Supernice and more than expected, highly recomended!
Iris's apt is very clean, beautiful and exactly what we want. We would definitely choose this place if we visit carmel again. highly recommended.
We had a lovely experience staying at Iris's home. Her location really is great for convenience to Carmel and Big Sur. She is a few blocks from town and the beach, but it is a nice walk through quaint Carmel neighborhoods. We had everything we needed, and enjoyed out stay. Her place is immaculately clean and cute. The value, for Carmel, is pretty incredible.
Iris was communicative and helpful. The apartment was excellent - even better than the photos led us to expect. We really appreciated the complimentary chocolate, breakfast bars, yoghurt, cereal and fresh milk in the fridge, which meant that we didn't need to make our own arrangements for breakfast before setting off on our long drive down the coast.
We enjoyed our stay in the appartment. It is perfectly situated in Carmel and Iris is a very friendly and helpful host. Thanks for having us!
Beautiful, spacious room, kitchen and bathroom. We only met Iris very briefly (we only stayed one night) but she was communicative beforehand, and her instructions were clear. Key was in a key safe so no issues with access.
The studio is well placed for Hw1, just a short drive to Point Lobos park which was lovely. However this means it is a fair distance from downtown Carmel which means if you want a dinner in town, a few drinks etc then it's a bit of a walk back in the dark with no street lights and much of the route without pavements. Not a problem but worth knowing about beforehand.
The apartment is exactly the same as presented from Iris! She is also a wonderful person and very helpful with everything! When we woke up she had breakfast in the kitchen! Make very nice experience! Thank you IRis!
Beautiful place to stay!! Thank you :)
Great place to stay! The apt was really clean and nice. Exactly like in the pics. The place is on an uphill so parking is not an issue for 1 or 2 cars. Iris was a pleasure to speak with. Very accommodating. This is a perfect place to stay if you're in the area or visiting Big Sur. Point Lobos is within a few mins away.
My boyfriend and I wanted to go down to Big Sur for a couple of days, and this studio ended up being the perfect place to stay. It was close to the highway so that day trips were easy, but it was far enough away so that we had peace and quiet at night. The place was clean and cozy, and Iris provided great restaurant recommendations, too- downtown Carmel was only a mile away. We would definitely stay here again!
Iris & her friend were super friendly, courteous, and polite guests at our Alaska B&B this spring... We enjoyed hearing about her AirBnB place in Carmel, her travel adventures, and sharing our home with them :) Thanks for staying with us! Best regards, Y&G, Enchanted View B&B, Homer AK :)
Angela and Lucas were so enjoyable to host. Thanks Iris for sending them our way!
Iris's friend Angela and her son Lukas were great guests, If Iris needs to make a reservation for them take it they are great.
This room is in a lovely, clean, spacious home with beautiful views. The room is right next to the bathroom. I have experienced my friend Iris' hospitality many times. She is a warm and gracious hostess. The home is very convenient to all that is Carmel and Monterey. You'll be glad you chose this place.
Iris is my mom, so of course I think she's awesome, but having lived with her for 18 years, I can assure you you're in for a treat. She's fun, interesting, and most of all dependable. I'm sure she'll make your stay a wonderful one.
