About this listing

Escape the city bustle and experience the quiet and serenity of this tower guest retreat surrounded by thousands of acres of park lands for hiking, biking or just sitting on the deck bird watching or relaxing.

The space

A romantic get-away for two adults in this very private secluded sanctuary.

This converted water tower with phenomenal views of thousands of acres of parkland for hiking, biking and horseback riding is close to town and activities.

Experiencing the outdoors does not have to involve unpredictable downpours, wild animals, insects or frostbite. Make the most of your outdoor adventure without having to sacrifice the comforts of home, snug in your comfortable bed surrounded by windows showcasing panoramic views of Garland Park.

A short 130 FEET UP THE PATH leads you to your private bathroom and shower where you can enjoy cleaning up from an exhilarating hike or prepare for a trip to any of the 20+ wine tasting rooms within 3 miles.

Carmel Valley also boasts many excellent restaurants for your enjoyment. Carmel, Big Sur, Monterey, Pacific Grove are all within fifteen minutes to an hour's scenic drive and offer many wonderful restaurants, activities and festivals.

Enjoy your morning sitting on the deck and listening to the birds singing and your hosts horses up at the barn munching hay. Your small, apartment sized refrigerator is stocked with cold drinks, fruit, milk, snacks and there are a selection of cereals and goodies to go along with your morning coffee.

There are no closets and hanging space for your clothing is limited to hooks in the bathroom and a few in the tower so pack carefully, you will not need to bring much to enjoy your stay.

Your hosts, Jeanne and "Tiger" Steele were raised on the Monterey Peninsula and can assist you in planning your trip to involve any activities or interests you may wish to pursue during your stay. Both are avid hikers and horseback riders who know every park and trail in the area.

This is one of the coolest Airbnbs I've stayed at. The view was amazing! The dogs are adorable as are the horses. Chandler was super helpful with the information on where to go in Carmel, definitely listen to him! The tower was cute, cozy and clean. Will definitely be making a trip back here.

Such an amazing Airbnb-very cool staying in a renovated lighthouse. The views are unbelievable . It is a 10min drive to some restaurant and shops. The host was very helpful and helped us plan out our trip for the next day to make sure we saw everything worth seeing. Thanks!

The tower was a one of a kind experience! The space was adorable, bed comfy, and Chandler gave us some insight about how him and his wife came to own the property. Glad we got a chance to stay while we could. The stars at night were incredible!! Best of luck to you both in North Carolina when the time comes!!

Chandler's place was an absolute treat! We loved staying in Carmel Valley in this serene getaway. The view is unrivaled and not something you could get staying at one of the nearby hotels. It was a quick shot into to town to hit up wineries and grab a bite to eat which was perfect. Chandler knows Carmel Valley in and out and was able to offer great suggestions. The room was simple and had everything we needed. Bed is SUPER comfortable. Although bathroom is not connected to the room we didn't mind - it was a couple steps up a well lit path and was extremely clean. Added bonus of getting to pet Chandler's two dogs and his beautiful horse Temple!! Would come back in a heartbeat!

We had an incredible time at Chandler's Spot in Carmel Valley. What a beautiful view to wake up to each morning. Chandler recommended some incredible restaurants to check out and places to see in Carmel and we couldn't be more thankful for his hospitality!!

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.
