This was a wonderful place to stay for a number of reasons! We stayed for two nights at the end of June and I have to say it is more of a total experience than just accomodation!
It is a quaint lovely attractive place. It is about 5 blocks over from the main Street in Carmel - which is much much better than staying actually on the main street - the reason is that it is very quiet and you are in the middle of the most wonderful residential area, surrounded by wonderful homes. We spent hours just wandering around looking at the houses in the neighbourhood!
If you are not fit enough to walk the lovey 10/15 minutes over to the main street from here then you have serious health problems!
The room we stayed in was faultless and I have to say that the room prices are staggered - therefore I think the last reviewer on this page had a more basic room as they must have chosen the cheapest.
As for the breakfast - it is wonderful. Yes, it is not a traditional "English" cooked breakfast, but it is wonderful - I am not sure why the previous reviewer was not aware of this prior to booking, and to be honest, after a few weeks in America it was a nice change compared to the waffles, pancakes, maple syrup etc! The breakfast is served and is fresh and very enjoyable, with an excellent selection of cereal, fresh fruits, fresh homemade cakes and pastries, english muffins, toast etc etc.
The building itself is also wonderful, and the hosts are extremely nice - providing afternoon tea and cakes free, and also free cheese and wine in the evening - which is a lovely touch!
The sea is literally a few minutes walk away and so to comment "it does not have a sea view" is just damn picky - do your research!
Don't even consider staying anywhere else. It's wonderful and very good value for money.
