Great Escape

6 guests · 3 bedrooms · 3.5 baths
Experience the exquisite, seaside elegance of Carmel in this superb three-bedroom home. Situated within walking distance of the Carmel Mission Basilica Museum and a short drive from Pebble Beach, the villa provides serene comfort for savoring quality time with loved ones, while placing you within easy reach of the myriad riches of the Monterrey coast. Ample alfresco living areas, classy and cozy interiors, and proximity to some of the finest golf in California compose an ideal vacation rental for families, groups of friends, and destination wedding guests.
The villa's interiors evoke the consummate, naturalistic elegance of modern Carmel, floors and cabinetry of rich wood, sumptuous furnishings, superb original artwork, and multiple fireplaces. Enjoy evenings together in the living room, sipping delicious California wine by the fire. Prepare fabulous meals of local fare in the fully equipped kitchen with chef-grade appliances and island bar, and gather in the beautiful dining room. On warm afternoons and evenings, open the door to the alfresco patio, cooking a classic Western barbeque on the grill and savoring drinks in the yard. An upper-level deck off the master bedroom is ideal for sunset wine or coffee in the morning light. Tall and lush native trees provide lovely shade cover and infuse the sea-filtered air with subtle fragrances.
The master suite features a king bed, fireplace, mounted flat-screen TV, ample walk-in closet, and ensuite bathroom with stand-alone shower and tub. There is one guestroom with a king bed (convertible into two twins) and one with a queen, and both have ensuite bathrooms. Each bedroom enjoy its own charm and provides tranquil privacy for individuals, couples, and children.
Great Escape features a two-car garage with beautiful doors of pickle wood, from which you can easily explore the Carmel coastline, Monterey Peninsula, and beyond. You're just two minutes from the beach at Carmel Sunset Beach, while Carmel River State Beach and Monastery Beach are slightly farther on. Golfers are an easy drive to Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill. The exquisite charm of Carmel-by-the-Sea and Old Fisherman's Wharf are just minutes away. Big Sur—legendary site of sublime self-discovery—is less than twenty miles from your door.
