House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-10)
- english, spanish
We lived in this wonderful home from 1976 until 1986. During that time we fully remodeled this wonderful classic Carmel Valley post adobe home. In 1999 we completely furnished the home and set it up as a vacation rental so we could spend time there ourselves as well as let others enjoy the peace and tranquility it offers. It is our art piece and escape. Everyone who has stayed there loves it and we now have many yearly returning families and groups.
Stein purchased this House in 1976
Why Stein chose Carmel Valley
Carmel Valley Retreat was the home we lived in for over 10 years.
What makes this House unique

This is the most wonderful house I have ever stayed in!
This is the most wonderful house I have ever stayed in! We love the photos we saw online, but it was even more beautiful once we got to the house. The hot tub, the pool, the waterfall, and the pond were spiritual and relaxing. The rooms were warm and wonderful; the beds were extremely comfortable, The bedding was exceptional. The kitchen was perfect for our family meals and we spent so much time at the house, we didn’t even get much beyond the wedding, we attended, and Carmel by the Sea. The big dining table was perfect for family card games, and we really enjoyed just reclining on the lounge chairs around the pool. Deer came into the yard and there were numerous types of birds. It was truly a paradise in the Carmel Valley. We are thinking about coming back for a family holiday. Five days at the house were not enough.
Fun With Relatives - But no microwave POPCORN
We all enjoyed the lovely gardens. My grandsons used the pool though it was cold. The rooms were all perfect. Our children In their 50's and their spouses as well as our teenage grandsons were all impressed as we were. Our only disappoint was that the microwave blew up when we were trying to make microwave popcorn. Luckily one of our son-in-laws used the extinguisher.
Quiet and relaxing. Beautiful landscaping. Easy access to groceries and entertainment.
Chuck was terrific to work with and his house is ideal.
Our family had a wonderful time and wish to do it again.
