We visited Carmel for our one year anniversary and absolutely fell in love with this charming B&B. I found the Monte Verde on Trip Advisor and decided to book a room for one night, given its location and the pictures of the recently rennovated rooms. The new manager, Steve, learned that it was our anniversary and put us in a beautiful Ocean View suite with a full kitchen and separate living room with fireplce. It was amazing! The room was just perfect - nicely decorated and extremeley comfortable.
The hospitality at Monte Verde is outstanding. Everyone was so friendly. They gave us an excellent dinner recommendation (Andre Bouche's French Restaurant, which was wonderful), the breakfast basket delivered in the morning was great (hardboiled eggs, yogurt, warm pastries, OJ), and they were exceedingly accommodating when we awakened in the morning and decided we didn't want to leave! We stayed a second night and enjoyed it just as much as the first. They also offer complimentary wine and cheese - perfect for watching the sunset.
The hotel is right on the main street where you'll find all the restaurants and shops, and only a few blocks East of the beach.
They're even pet friendly!
We definitely recommend this B&B, and we look forward to returning in the future.More
