It's a beautiful house with lots of sunshine during the day.
Sitting around the fire pit in the patio was also very fun thing to do at night.
It's located in a nice and quiet place yet it's very close to downtown Carmel.
The host was very communicative and responded to our every question/request very quickly.
Fantastic trip overall.
Excellent accueil de la part de Alan, maison très agréable bien orientée et bien située, à deux pas du coeur de Carmel.
Expérience a renouveler !
Alan is a nice, approachable and flexible host. The house is in a great location and is very clean and well stocked. Made for a great Thanksgiving break!
We felt welcome because Alan was always very quick and communicative with any questions we had. Checking in and out went smoothly and Alan made sure we knew where coffee was which is the most important part of my day!!!
First off, the location was better than expected. It's literally two blocks from the Ocean Ave shops. For as conveniently located as it is, we were surprised to find it also quiet and private. The trees in the neighborhood are beautiful and makes you feel like you are in the woods. There is a tire swing that our kids just loved. If you like the cute shops and restaurants in the Ocean Ave area, this place is perfect. We literally parked our van in the driveway and forgot about it until it was time to go.
The house is just a bit old and could be improved by renovation. That said, everything worked and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was fairly well supplied although we missed having a dish washer. A sponge and soap is provided. Being two blocks from town, you can get everything you need from the local grocery store. There is a fire pit on the balcony that was nice to sit around in the evening with a campfire like feeling. You'll have to get your own firewood after you burn through the initial logs that are in the pit. There is also a centrally located fireplace in the living/dining area. Central heating is also available to keep the place quietly warm.
Alan, the host, was very responsive from the start. I was easily able to book the place and he provided information whenever necessary within the hour. Although we did not see him, it was also not necessary.
All in all, we had a great weekend get away.
Alan was a great host. The house was perfect and the location was even closer to downtown than we realized. Thanks!
The house is very peaceful, quiet, and feels like a treehouse. But it's also convenient: a 5-minute walk to downtown Carmel and a 10-minute drive to Monterey. Alan is communicative and helpful. Great visit!
This was the perfect house for a relaxing, weekend getaway. Great location just a few blocks from the main part of Carmel and a nice walk to the beach. And only a few minutes drive to Monterey and Carmel Valley. Great outdoor space with a firepit. The house was also very well stocked with plenty of toiletries as well as bath and beach towels. Alan was easy to coordinate with and very responsive throughout the weekend.
Alan was a great host! He provided all necessary information. The place was exactly as described. Very good location to explore this part of California coast. House had everything needed and a few questions I had were answered right away. We had very positive experience with this host.
We had a great stay in Carmel! The location was amazing, just a short wall to Ocean Ave and all that it has to offer. Quiet neighborhood and enough space to relax and enjoy a long weekend. The outdoor patio was nice for enjoying coffee in the mornings and we had a great spot to park off the street, which was pretty packed the entire time we were there. Really enjoyed our first AIRbnb experience and Alan was a great host, always in contact as needed and quick to respond to our questions.
Alan was a great guest. Very friendly, great communication, and patient ( a few quirky things went wrong in the cassita...ie smoke alarm battery needed replacing, shower knob needed tightening) He left the place very clean. Nice guy and I would rent to him again.
Alan was a great guest, left the apartment is perfect condition. More than happy to welcome Alan back again in the future
Alan and family were wonderful, respectful guests at Gold Creek Cabin and we would welcome them back anytime! They did a nice job cleaning up before they checked out and Alan was a great communicator.
