My wife and I were raised in Carmel California and she says I spent far to much time skipping school and going to the beach. Still managed a very successful business career. I am now enjoying sharing our beautiful property with family, friends and guests. My wife has given me the title of Director of Facilities and I am enjoying my pursuits of gardening, remodeling and whatever else she asks me to do. I enjoy hiking, traveling with our horses and visiting with friends and neighbors. We have a deep affection for the Monterey Peninsula and all the interests and activities unique to this area. I love coffee on the deck in the mornings watching the spectacular sunrise over the endless vista of Garland Park and looking forward to another beautiful sunny day. As your hosts we will respect your privacy but are available to help you with planning your activities or whatever information or assistance you need, just give us a call.
