El alojamiento

Hello Airbnb travelers!

We have a small, simple, very private studio room for guests to stay in while they are visiting the Monterey Peninsula. Though we are located right by Highway 1 as you enter Carmel, once you step through the large wooden gate and walk down the brick pathway in our secret garden, you will find a safe, clean, and simple haven to call home during your stay.

The room has a private entrance and a private bath, connected, yet completely closed off and separate from the main house where we live. The redwood room, hardwood floor, high-beam ceiling, and flora and fauna theme give the studio a calm, cheerful feel. The room has a comfortable queen size bed with a memory foam topper, and plenty of soft blankets and pillows. The bathroom has a shower, heat lamp, a wonderful radiant heat floor and lots of towels. There is no kitchen, but there is a small refrigerator, a tea kettle, and a coffee maker for your morning coffee. We provide complimentary freshly ground organic beans, a variety of teas, organic half & half and purified water. On the bookshelf you will find many books to read on local history, travel guides, hiking trails, California bird, tree and wildflower field guides, and other interesting topics. Wifi , a Bose Wave radio/cd player with a selection of cd's, a hair dryer, binoculars, a picnic basket, beach towels, ear plugs, and a small tv with Roku options, are also provided for your use and enjoyment.

The house is situated right off Highway 1 as you enter Carmel (about 70 ft), but we are surprisingly tucked away and hidden from view- but please note-*** YOU WILL HEAR TRAFFIC***. It quiets way down after rush hours in the morning and evening, even more after 11 p.m., and after ~12,-12:30 is u-s-ually pretty much quiet all night, although a bit louder and later during holidays, weekends, and local main events. The occasional siren and motorcycle can be heard, but with the windows closed, it's usually not that bad. Though the highway sound can definitely be an issue for some, almost all people so far have found the level to be acceptable- the new dual-pane windows and door help a lot! The upside to the location is that it offers very fast, instant access to any destination you are headed, be it Carmel-by-the-Sea, Carmel Valley, Point Lobos, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Monterey or Big Sur.

***INCLUDED with the price of the room, we offer several perks to make your stay even more enjoyable:
*Two Monterey Bay Aquarium guest passes (an $100 value)
*A California State Park pass which gives you free access to our local Point Lobos State Park Reserve (a $10 value).
*Complimentary wine tasting card at an excellent local winery (a $20 value).
All are must-see places to go while you are here in Carmel, and if you take advantage of all these perks, it's like getting one night free!

If you are looking for a sunny, secluded, quiet place to stay, this is not the place for you, but if you are looking for a private, conveniently located, reasonably priced, cozy space with a hot shower, a comfortable bed and basic amenities, to use as a home base during your adventure, then this just may be the perfect spot.

+++++PLEASE NOTE+++++If you do decide to inquire about or book the room, please share a little about yourself, who you will be travelling with, and the purpose of your visit in your first message to us. Please understand that we will only accept reservations from 100% verified guests with a completed profile and photo.

Check-out time is 10:30 a.m. (it is listed as 10 o'clock, but 10:30 was not an option in the editing drop-down menu).

Thank you for your interest in our studio and we look forward to meeting you if you should decide to click "book it!"

We very much enjoyed our stay at the secret garden. Michael and Jill were very hospitable, and provided excellent tips and recommendations. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed. We used the state park pass to spend a morning at Point Lobos - well worth a visit! We would definitely stay here again when in the area.

This place is nothing short of the listing. Michael & Jill welcomed us cheerfully with open arms as soon as we drove into the parkway. They are incredibly detailed from the description on the listing to our mini 5 minute tour of the place upon arrival. Throughout our encounter with Michael, he was genuinely interested in everything we did and making sure we were getting the best of our little vacation here. The attention to detail is incredible from the collection of menus to the "just in case I forgot my toothbrush" provided. Even though they're right off the highway, it actually made travelling more convenient for us rather than going through all these side streets. The best part of this place was the additional perks of the complimentary Monterey Bay Aquarium, Point Lobos State Park, and Taste Morgan wine tasting. We took advantage of all three and had the best time!

Michael and Jill are wonderful hosts! They definitely want to take care of their guests. Their space has everything you need and a little bit more. Definitely the perfect spot for any couple looking for a Carmel getaway. They're next to the 1, so there's a little bit of traffic noise due to that, but it's honestly not all that noticeable, especially at night. The room is secluded and has plenty of privacy. Jill and Michael have a thorough itinerary for places to visit, eat, and hike, so if you show up with no plan, they'll definitely help you make one. Michael was very enthusiastic about Point Lobos, a destination we had not considered, and we ended up going there upon his recommendation. We did not regret it. The Secret Garden Room is a great spot, giving visitors easy access to Carmel, Monterey, and Big Sur. Communication was clear and detailed. Would definitely book again.

Michael and Jill were great hosts, they received us with opened arms, and explained us everything about the apartment. They have carefully planned everything, and will happily suggest activities and things to see around Carmel, they went as far as providing a parking pass to visit the Los Lobos Park, which is a must see, a free wine tasting experience at a local wine shop, and also a pass for the aquarium. In years of using Airbnb, I had never seen a host going this far. The apartment itself is also great, you get a lot of privacy, as it's a detached unit from the main house. It was tastefully decorated, and even though it doesn't have a kitchen, there is a cabinet full of tea options and coffee. Besides that, the bed was very comfortable. Will repeat if we are in Carmel again.

Michael and Jill's secret garden room is truly as it sounds. After passing through a rounded wooden door, you're instantly in an eden like space away from all the cares in the world. A short walk down a beautifully gardened path will lead to to your oasis for the duration of your stay. The bed is incredibly comfortable. The pantry is lovingly stocked with every tea for anything that ails you along with coffee, creamer, water, utensils and a mini fridge. There's a closet to hang all your belongings and plenty of towels and washcloths. My trip to Carmel started with a terrible, long day which included delayed baggage which had all of my toiletries and clothes in them. I was pleasantly surprised to find a toothbrush, toothpaste and a little mouthwash with floss in the cabinet, shampoo, conditioner and soap in the shower to help wash away the tumultuous day I'd had and get some sleep without having to venture out again. Even though its immediately off the highway, its quiet and there are netflix :) Jill and Michael were very caring, even asking about my forgotten luggage the day after my arrival. This is truly a gem. Thank you so much, Michael & Jill!

We are both life-time Carmel locals. We cherish the local beauty of the hills and coastline that surround us, and we feel very blessed to be here. I am a dog sitter, and Michael is a veteran Caddie at Pebble Beach Golf Links. I love gardening, William Morris and Pre-Raphaelite art, animals, shell collecting and vegetarian cooking. Michael loves taking saunas, walking Point Lobos, hiking in the Sierra mountains, learning about local fauna and eating my vegetarian cooking. We are both passionate about water, energy and resource conservation, composting and recycling. We love Airbnb and look forward to opening our humble home to travelers near and far.
