Wine tasting and Restaurants
The Monterey Peninsula is known for a very wide selection of good to very good restaurants and dozens of tasting rooms featuring wines and olive oils made locally and in nearby wine growing regions of California. There are about 20 tasting rooms just up the road in Carmel Valley Village and more in downtown Carmel. There are also several notable restaurants nearby.
The signature sport of the Monterey Peninsula is golf. Some 16 golf courses await, among them the famous courses of Pebble Beach including Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, Poppy Hills and Spanish Bay, all accessible to the public. Many other challenging and scenic courses are also available – Black Horse and Bayonet, Quail Lodge, Del Monte, Laguna Seca, Carmel Valley Ranch, Pasadera and Corral de Tierra are all within about a 20 minute drive from the guest house.
Other sport activities are available throughout the peninsula. There are several scenic hiking trails within a short distance. The entrance to Garland Ranch, with miles of scenic trails, is just one mile from the guest house. Bicycling is everywhere on all the local roads. Whale watching, scuba diving and kayaking on Monterey Bay are popular aquatic activities and the Monterey Bay Aquarium is a must-see attraction.
Carmel-by-the-Sea is shopping central, specializing in art from both local and international artists, with clothing stores, many specialty stores and dozens of restaurants. Del Monte Center in Monterey features a number of national brand stores as well as a multiplex theater and several restaurants. The Barnyard and Crossroads shopping areas, both at the mouth of the valley, are about 10-15 minutes from the guest house.
As a vacation destination, Monterey is also host to a large number of special events every year. The annual AT&T golf tournament always attracts top players and the US Open is played periodically at the Pebble Beach venues. The Monterey Jazz Festival, the motorcycle Gathering at Quail Lodge and several other festivals take place throughout the year. The Big Sur Marathon attracts some of the best runners in the world. Possibly the best known event is the Pebble Beach Concourse D ’Elegance and auction. Through the years so many other car events have been added at venues around the Peninsula that locals now speak of “car week,” which features some six or seven important auctions, specialized single-make car shows and the Historic Races at Laguna Seca featuring the beautiful race cars of the post-war era.

Thank you so much Jae, Bob, Max & Peter. Thank you for making your place be available for us. Jason and I had such a great time and enjoyed your place so much. You have done such a great job with the construction of the casita, the construction, landscaping is just simply beautiful, well thought out so private. The little touches you have everywhere is well received and appreciated.
Your bathroom, the tub and the shower is just simply out of this world. We loved it so much we want to do the same thing with our house. :)
Jason and I decided that we are going to come back and make your place our usual and regular place for us whenever we are in Carmel. Thank you so much for everything and the bouquet of lavender, very thoughtful and so pretty. Thank you!!!

.A superb, extremely comfortable rental with all amenities. With sleek, well-designed accommodations (the lighting design is especially beautiful) and lovely garden surroundings that include a fine hot tub). It feels like a private, first-class resort. Our host, Jae, was thoughtful and pleasant and friendly, offering many special touches--a welcoming fruit basket and fresh flowers, a New York Times by the door every morning, and an enormous library of DVDs. Easy access by car to many beautiful places. Hands down, the best vacation rental in our experience--highly recommended

.I thoroughly enjoyed my first stay at this extremely well-appointed and spacious one-bedroom apartment. I found the location to be perfect for day trips to Carmel and Monterrey. The owners could not have been nicer and saw to our every need. I really appreciated the beautiful design of the completely remodeled space including a modern kitchen. The fabulous bathroom was a highlight with a dramatic shower and soaking tub. The only downside was that an enormous deck and hot tub are under construction and weren't ready for this visit. I understand they will be done in a few weeks. I look forward to going back!
A wonderful place for honeymooners and everybody else who loves to relax

.We were the third people to profit from this competely new and very luxiourus renovated appartment. It was like a dream. The last 5 days from our honeymoon we enjoyed there. The hosts were enormous generous with us. We could use even their own swimmingpool, had barbeque with them and just a great time. THANKS A LOT! we can highly recommend this place. The place is also accecible by bike or public transport. We had no car just our bikes with us.

I travel quite a bit and I am always looking for a quiet and comfortable place to stay. I heard about this place from a friend and decided to give it a try. It was even better than I had hoped; the owners have gone to great lengths to ensure that their guests feel comfortable and pampered, and the setting is unbeatable – the pictures on (website hidden) really don't do it justice. It is the best place I have stayed in the Carmel area. I would highly recommend this property to any couple seeking a romantic retreat or just want a fantastic get away.
