If you're looking for a place to stay in Carmel that is lovely, comfortable, reasonable, and close to downtown, look no further! We celebrated our wedding anniversary at "Casa Costagliola" and it was perfect in every way. Lydia is an incredibly friendly and warm person and her husband is charming and very kind. Lydia gave us suggestions for restaurants and they were all spot on. We had our anniversary dinner at Casanova's and it was a romantic place and the food was very delicious. We will definitely be back!
Lydia is a terrific hostess. We had al the pertinent information we needed prior to our arrival. Her place is a very short easy drive to the downtown area. Short enough to walk but I am not sure I would advise it since there are no sidewalks and the streets are heavily trafficked. We had everything we needed to be comfortable, including snacks and coffee and tea. She left us terrific recommendations for dinner. I highly recommend Casanova. The food and ambience were amazing, just like being in Europe. Thank you Lydia, and Juliano for making our stay so pleasant!!
Great to have you visit Sandra!
We had a great stay at Lydia's flat! It was perfect and just a couple minutes away from the beach and shopping in Carmel, She was very helpful with restaurant choices and had delicious snacks, tea and coffee in the room, we had a great honeymoon!
Very nice place, very nice host.
Bring your bike and you can ride from the apartment to the Carmel gate of 17 Mile Drive, where you can do a fabulous bike ride.
Thanks Lydia for a great stay! The apartment was adorable and had everything we could have needed for a weekend mini-vacay to Carmel. While we did not spend much time in the actual room, we were able to take advantage of the coffee maker, wine key, and robes.
The only concern with the location of the apartment was the lack of sidewalks and the speeding cars on the street, which would have made a walk to downtown Ocean Ave a little scary particularly at night.
Such and awesome place to stay at in Carmel! My sister and I got out of Silicon Valley for the weekend and really enjoyed everything about Lydia's spot and the surrounding area. Lydia greeted us when we arrived and got us acquainted with the space (which is really neat!) Super clean. Well organized. Great location- we walked downtown to breakfast every morning. I would highly recommend this spot! Don't forget to visit Juliano over at Casanova- he made us feel like special guests, too!
Lydia and her home were very welcoming. My boyfriend and I enjoyed our trip very much and would recommend her place to anyone! It is a great location close to many shops and restaurants in Carmel. She was a perfect host giving us tips on places to go while also giving us our privacy.
The perfect place to stay for a peaceful getaway! It's in a great location and Lydia was very welcoming and provided tons of resources of things to do during our stay!
Rachel....you were such wonderful guests!!! Thanks!
It was great fortune finding this quaint little place to stay. It turned out to be in a perfect location. So much easier and better than hotel.
Thanks Dana!!! great guests!
A lovely space, really nicely decorated, bright, and comfortable. Furniture is in excellent shape, and there's lots of space for storage, too. The host was very welcoming and available to help at any time. It was great to be able to eat breakfast in, but it's a little awkward to use the bathroom sink to wash the dishes. We think the space is best for younger visitors, because there are two steps leading from the bedroom to the hallway and bathroom, and there are two other steps from the kitchen/bathroom area to the living room. We felt we had to tread carefully to make sure not to trip on these.
