Home sleeps up to 4 adults and 2 children age 12 or under. Ask our Reservationists about two days for the price of one admission tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium when you book this home! You'll love this bright, cheerful home located in Del Rey Oaks, a quiet bedroom community within 10 minutes of Carmel, Monterey and other major Monterey Peninsula attractions. If you're a tennis aficionado, courts are within walking distance. The contemporary 2,100 square feet, 2-bedroom, 2-bath plus den is faced in sand-colored Carmel stone and sits up on a rise that offers an elevated position over other homes in the neighborhood. A terraced front garden is planted with drought-tolerant flowering plants. Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complementary wine and cheese, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear. Your spirits will lift the moment you open the door to this feel-good kind of place. Prints of birds and botanicals and a crisp lime-green and white color scheme bring nature indoors in this immaculate dwelling that features a spacious great room, high beamed ceilings and hardwood floors. A small entryway opens to the sunken living room with a massive Carmel stone fireplace, white leather couches and easy chair with light pouring in through large arched windows on either side of the fireplace. One wall holds numerous prints of birds, plants and flowers, establishing a theme that repeats throughout the house. You will love sitting in this room and playing games, having long conversations or watching movies on the 36” flat-screened TV tucked away in a wooden amoire. Slightly elevated and completely open to the living room is the dining room with an off-white caned breakfront cabinet holding glassware and nick-knacks and an off-white table with cane-backed chairs that can seat up to 6. Ceiling fans in both the living and dining rooms contribute to the house's island feel. The dining room is contiguous with a chef's dream-come-true kitchen - an absolute stunner with golden granite surfaces, pine cabinetry and a carefully conceived floor plan. At the perimeter is a bar with stool-seating for 4 for casual meals or conversing with the cook. The main work area revolves around a large island containing sinks, a built-in stove top and a stainless steel dishwasher. There is also a stainless steel oven and microwave and a large refrigerator faced with pine. Everything you could think of for preparing and serving memorable gourmet meals is here, including a selection of cookbooks. Brew your morning coffee and exit from the kitchen with your cup of java to an enclosed patio with a couch, chairs and a table. The spacious master bedroom has a sophisticated French feel with a cool robin's-egg-blue and white palette, broad-striped wallpaper, wall to wall white rug, filmy white draperies, a white-caned dresser, mirror and end tables, and a white wrought-iron king bed with luxurious linens. There is a small private deck with a lounge chaise for sunbathing or reading a book. A small seating area in the master includes a white sofa and an arm chair. Take a relaxing bath by candlelight in the deep spa tub with jets in the master bathroom, his-and-hers sinks and separate shower. A second bedroom in a soft buttery yellow has a white wrought-iron queen bed with bird-themed coverlet and white end tables. A second bath with a shower has a spa feel with its taupe and beige tiling. Relax with a book in a third room, that could be used as an office, with a sofa that converts to a queen bed to sleep up to two children.

The home is beautifully situated in that it is close enough to everything that Monterrey and its surrounding area have to offer, without being in a high traffic area. The house is extremely spacious and feels very new/upgraded. I would certainly rent this location again!

I've had many vacation rentals and this house was among the best appointed properties I've ever seen. It was completely turn-key. The house is open and airy with a pretty little back patio. The gas fireplace made the open floor plan very cozy. Beds were...More
