I'm a documentary filmmaker, recently completed a film called Pink Smoke Over The Vatican.
Jules Hart really surpassed our expectations! We were a group of 5 on a mommy get away and this home was perfect! Sitting outside sipping coffee with views and... Wait for it.. Total silence was out of this world!!! The photos of this place do it no justice. Jules has taken the time to handpick each item in the home and it is truly so unique and exceptional. The beds were soooooo comfortable (not sure about the friend who ended up on the sofa but she didn't complain)! We will definitely be coming back again soon!
Summary: The house is beautiful in a great location with exceptional views. I would definitely stay there again, but only with 4 people tops. The bedrooms are very comfortable, but the sofa beds are not.
The house is in a gorgeous location, far away from neighbors and looking out over open space. It's amazingly quiet and the views are incredible.
Jules is extremely nice and responsive.
The two bedrooms are very comfortable with high-quality beds, pillows and bedding.
The master bathroom is very nice with heated floors and a big, renovated shower.
The fireplace is really great on cool evenings.
The house is 5 minutes from a Safeway shopping center - very convenient.
The house is very close to a number of great hikes and trails.
The two pull-out sofa beds are very uncomfortable.
There are no curtains or blinds on the East-facing windows, so anyone sleeping in the main room, i.e. on the sofa beds will be blasted with sunshine & heat in the morning.
Only one of the two bathrooms has a shower - the other only has the soaking tub.
The kitchen stove is an old electric-top.
Jules, the owner, lives in a connected, but separate apartment. However, if she hadn't told us this we wouldn't have known as we didn't hear or see her during our stay - she is very unobtrusive.
We were planning to use the gas BBQ, but it was out of gas. Jules was very apologetic and offered to fill it up first thing the next morning.
STUNNING place!!! My girlfriends and I could not have found a better or more beautiful place for our meditations and intention settings for the new year. The house is gorgeous, clean, luxurious, the view is to die for, and Jules Hart is a sweetheart and incredible host. We felt so well taken care of. And the location is perfect, close to every gem in the Carmel/Big Sur area. I highly recommend "Hart's Desire", the name says it all :)
We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend! The view of the rolling hills of Carmel Valley is spectacular! Make sure to take in the stars at night, The home is beautifully appointed. The amenities of the area are all easily accessible.
It was a perfect place to relax and get away for a few days. Jules was so accommodating and a fantastic host. The pictures do not even do justice to the views, and at night the sky is full of stars. Just an amazing time!
Jules was absolutely wonderful. She made our week so easy and perfect including being so flexible with us. The house was even more beautiful in person and instantly felt like home. Really hope that we can come back again someday to this magical place.
The house with an amazing view and located in a very quiet valley. This is my first time to visit Carmel, Jule's house bring me an excellent expericen for my trip. I will be definitely come back again.
Beautiful spot on the hill above Carmel Valley. We only stayed one night and got a taxi in and out of Carmel (about $30 each way), but it worked out well.
Excellent proximity to Laguna Seca too, our destination.
I love Carmel Valley and have been traveling there for mini escapes for over 25 years. I am so happy to have found Hearts Desire on Airbnb.
The house is very well appointed and comfortable for a group of 4-6. Everything about The house says, "relax, enjoy and take in the views"! You won't want to leave your reading chair!
I enjoy cooking and the kitchen was perfect for entertaining - I could still see the views from the stove!
Jules was also very accommodating with our requests and made sure that we enjoyed our stay. I will be back soon.
Our stay in Carmel was perfect! My in laws were visiting from Chicago and it was a great way to show off the beauty of the area. Jules' house is up on a hill with incredible views. There is a large deck with seating and plenty of windows which allow you to really enjoy the location. The house is spacious, comfortable, and very clean. It had everything we needed and more, including a grill, large soaking tub, and heated tile floors in the bathrooms. There is a shopping center with a Safeway and coffee place a few minutes drive from the house. Jules was very responsive and reserving the place was a breeze. We only wish we had planned to stay longer. Thanks, Jules!
