3BR / 2Ba 2000ft2 furnished house
w/d in unit off-street parking
There is a comfortable living room with fireplace and a 40+ inch LCD HDTV with HD Dish Network feed with DVR. A DVD/CD player is available and a modest DVD library. (A second TV is in the 3rd bedroom and it has a DVD/VCR player) The views from the front of the house (living room and 2nd bedroom) are south to the Fish Ranch property and Inspiration Point in the Palo Corona Regional Park http://www.mprpd.org/index.cfm/id/10/Palo-Corona-Regional-Park/ with a slight glimpse of Carmel River Beach and Point Lobos through the trees. There is fast ATT DSL service in the house with wireless or Ethernet connectivity. A HP printer is available also capable of stand alone copy and FAX . The kitchen has all new appliances with the exception of my cherished 1950's classic Wedgewood gas stove. Off the kitchen is an ornate dining room and the private back patio with propane BBQ. Normal appliances are present such as high efficiency and quiet washer and dryer, a large microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker, blender, waffle iron/griddle, mix master and so forth. The master bedroom is in the rear of the residence, isolated form the activity of the busy end of the house. It can share a bathroom with the middle or 3rd bedroom though the 3rd bedroom can be isolated. Original ceramic tile and fixtures are present with a combination bathtub and shower. The second bedroom has an adjacent bathroom with a tiled-in shower. This shower spares no luxury in ample hot water to relax the body after a busy day or to get one going in the morning.
The location of this residence is simply wonderful. It is west of San Carlos street and three blocks from the main Carmel beach affording views of Pebble Beach golf course and lodge. Another couple blocks west along Scenic Drive and you are at the tip of Carmel Point with a world class panorama of Carmel Bay with Pebble Beach to the north and Point Lobos to the south. Carmel River mouth is also a short walk and can provide a stunning frog serenade in the evening and bird watching in the daytime. Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch Inn is about a block away providing great dining and a bar with tennis and gym facilities available at very reasonable costs. http://www.missionranchcarmel.com/tennisandfitness.html Carmel Mission Basilica is a couple of blocks to the east providing the visitor with a glimpse of California in the 1700's. http://www.carmelmission.org/museum/ There is an elementary school with playground next to the Mission Ranch where younger guests can wear themselves out in preparation for a good night?s sleep. After a nice 7 block walk north on Camino Real Street you find the historic La Playa Hotel at 8th Street. The lobby and stand up bar bare witness to the past in Carmel. Arguably the best mixed drink in town can be had at their ornate bar. A well-kept secret is their happy hour certain nights with free hors d'oeuvres. Call to confirm. http://www.laplayahotel.com/history/. There is a huge assortment of local restaurants, http://www.discoverourtown.com/CA/Carmel/Dining-2057.html.
This property is available only for 7 nights or more though it may be possible to arrange for somewhat shorter actual in-home residency time within a blocked out week. Local law mandates that rentals in the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea be allowed only on a monthly basis whereas homes in the county (outside the city limits) may rent on a weekly basis. My home is outside the city limits though the back yard property line borders the city. Therefore I am able to legally rent on a weekly basis. Be aware that renting outside the law could subject you and your landlord to penalties or action by Monterey County and the City of Carmel. Rates are negotiable, depend upon the time of year and are consistent with the current market. This is a strictly NO-SMOKING home. Though I am pet friendly, NO PETS can be allowed since, unfortunately, pets have not always been friendly to the house and garden. Housekeeping services can be arranged. Initial communication through Craigslist anonymous e-mail please.
