“"Great place for family and couples"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

My family and I recently stayed a couple nights at Happy Landing. We had been looking for a dog friendly place close to the beach. We were pleased beyond our expectations. We stayed in the "Eastwood" suite, which accomodated my husband and I, 2 teenage daughters and 2 young puppies. The staff was more than accomodating, meeting our every need and more. It is a very short walk to the beach which was very convenient. The breakfasts were hot and delicious and arrived at our door every morning. The accomodations were immaculate and very tasteful. We will definitely be telling family and friends about this gem and can't wait to return for another stay.

This place is absolutely charming. It’s just been redone and it’s immaculate, comfortable and enchanting. We love Carmel and the incredible dog beach, which was a 5-minute walk away (Carmel is VERY dog friendly) and this exquisite B&B and its owner Dawn, is the icing on the cake to this sweet town.
A really wonderful place!

I stayed at this is a beautiful B&B with a friend. The place itself was charming, very clean, and with lots of character. We stayed in the "Hepburn" suite which was full of light (and stocked with Hepburn movies which we enjoyed watching one evening). The owner let us look at a larger room to see if we preferred it and while we didn't, it was just as beautiful and very spacious.The courtyard was very serene with beautiful flowers and a fire place. The breakfast was tasty and the service there was very friendly. The location was perfect as it was a short distance to the beach and next door to a wonderful Italian cafe. My only recommendations would be to buy new hair dryers and ask about diet needs. My friend was vegetarian and couldn't eat the frittata although if we asked they probably would have accommodated... Overall no real complaints. I would definitely stay here again.

My family and I had a family reunion at Happy Landing last weekend. It was a great environment for such an event, with the beautifully re-done courtyard and close proximity to the beach and Carmel Village. The rooms were lovely and the breakfast each morning was tasty. I would highly recommend the Happy Landing for anyone who is looking for an enjoyable B&B experience!

Only a few blocks from the beautiful, large town beach, the Inn was a great place for the weekend. We chose it specifically because it was dog friendly (complete with a doggy treat on the morning breakfast tray), but I would choose it again even without a dog. The decor is fresh, clean, and updated (no frufru decorations here), and the bed was sumptuous. The outdoor fireplace is in a lovely courtyard. The historic nature of the property meant that the bathroom was small and parking limited. Neither thing was a big deal; we found a spot right on the street. Carmel is so walkable that we just walked everywhere anyway-beach, dinner, shopping. Stay at Happy Landing. You will want to go back. We sure do.

We stayed in this lovely and beautiful Bed and Breakfast to celebrate our anniversary and decompress from our crazy week. The room was so adorably decorated that we want to emulate this style in our own house. The courtyard is charming and quaint and the breakfast in the morning was delicious! The owner was very helpful and gave us a wonderful suggestion for dinner. The location couldn't be more perfect. One block away from wonderful restaurants and down the street from the beach. t would highly recommend this B&B to anyone wanting a romantic night in with their loved one.

My husband and I spent our 1 year wedding anniversary here at this quaint B&B and loved it. We loved the fact that they are dog friendly and could bring along our 9 month old Great Dane. We stayed in the Clint Eastwood room/ cabin. It was the most perfect one bedroom, one bath with a small living area (w/ fire place). The quiche breakfast that was delivered to our door each morning came with coffee or tea, oj and croissants, and our puppy got a couple of dog biscuits. The location is prime, walk-able to the beach (which our puppy loved) and lots of dog friendly quality restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you have a large dog go with a bigger room like the Clint Eastwood. The room isn't huge but...
