What Past Guests Are Saying
Relaxing, Close to town, Perfect for a little Getaway
Amenities were excellent and high quality. The house and landscaping was very relaxing. It was a great place to stay and it is very easy to walk to the beach or town when you want to get out. It's large enough for a family or a retreat of sorts.
Response from Tahoe & Carmel Rentals - 01/13/2012
Thanks for review. Since your stay I've added a new 42" HDTV with HD cable, new paintings from Morocco, a very large carved-wooden cobra from the Marrakech souq artisans, and painted the great room ceiling with a wonderful soft sheen. Best, Paul
Fabulous time had by all, young and young at heart!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here. It was close to the beach and to town for our daily walks. The home was perfect for our adult children and grandchildren. We barbecued, made smores in the firepit and took full advantage of the beautiful backyard. Great family vacation!
Response from Tahoe & Carmel Rentals - 01/13/2012
Glad the fire pit was fun. Complimentary fire pit firewood always stocked for Guests enjoyment. Best, Paul
