Woodsy cozy cabins
Pros: Check-in was easy, room was clean and property was nestled in a neighborhood. Cons: fireplace/heater did not work, bathroom window did not close or lock and I felt like the neighbors were in my room. It is not walking distance to Carmel by the sea but a short 4 minute drive.

Quiet and nice
It was a nice stay. Quiet area, clean. Only thing is they claim to be pet friendly but they’re really only small dog friendly. Was planning on taking my cats as they travel with us, cats are not allowed. We had to leave them home .

Verified Travelocity guest review

8/10 Very good

It's in Carmel-by-the-Sea, one of the most beautiful places in the world. The room felt clean, but there were many of dirty marks on the wall, patched holes not painted, and water damaged drywall in the bath.
