We came to Carmel for some recreation and to decompress. What we received at the Vagabond's House Inn was so much more than we expected. Nearby shopping, fantastic restaurants, and a beach second to none - what more could someone want? But Vagabond's House added a level of homey - ness and comfort we thought was out of our reach! They treated us like royalty, and spoiled us.
Fantastic food was brought to our room by pleasant staff members in the morning. No running out and grabbing something inferior on the way to the day's activities, it was all taken care of by a capable and willing chef and staff.
Onsite massage soothed our sore and tired muscles from the day's sightseeing and beach combing - thank you to Thom for suggesting it. Surely a treat that made our day!
Sightseeing on Highway 1 down to Big Sur, all mapped out for us by the hosts/managers/concierges/everythings Thom and Ran. We always had a seat at the perfect restaurant - which is something hard to do when we don't even know what we want. Ran and Thom steered us in the right direction every time.
Thom booked a whale watching tour for us which ran out of Monterey's Fisherman's Wharf - Whale watching capital of the world! Everyone on our tour saw plenty of whales.
Ran booked a tee time at a golf course nearby. Not the famous Pebble Beach, we are recreational golfers, and wanted something much less lofty. The public courses nearby have phenomenal scenery, are close to Pebble Beach, and only cost about what we'd pay for golf at home. Great choice - Rancho Canada in Carmel Valley.
Monterey Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf, scenic routes, whale watching tours, great restaurants, and excellent wine were all Ran and Thom's perfect suggestions.
Wine and cheese served in the lobby in the evenings by Ran and Thom were a good social time to talk with the other guests about their adventures of the day. Special local wines from the area were served, and we enjoyed them all.
Ran and Thom took such good care of us, and we enjoyed the Vagabonds House so much that we have booked a honeymoon suite for a few nights as a gift for our son and his soon-to-be wife. It is the perfect way to start a life together. I am sure the Vagabond's House Inn will be just as impressive to them as it is to us. We're coming back soon!
