Marea - 4Br - Sleeps 6
6 guests · 4 bedrooms · 3 bathrooms
Ocean views, a sunny terrace and a beach steps from the door: Marea has all the elements of a classic California retreat. Set in a landscape that has inspired generations of artists and writers, this charming vacation rental is close to the picturesque village of Carmel-by-the-Sea, world-class golf in Pebble Beach and historic sites in the city of Monterey. Two bedrooms in the main house and two in the guest house can accommodate up to four friends or family members on a coastal getaway. Marea has views to Point Lobos and beyond from its private terrace. Spend the day reading, napping or watching the tide go in and out in lazy luxury, then heat up the barbecue for a dinner of local produce. A heat lamp means you can linger at the al-fresco dining area and watch the stars come out. And of course, Wi-Fi lets you share your favorite landscape snaps with friends back at home. The villa welcomes guests with a courtyard filled with stone planters full of flowers. It’s just as lovely inside, where skylights dot whitewashed vaulted ceilings and an open-plan layout offers up ocean views from the sitting and dining areas and the kitchen. The cottage-chic furnishings, from striped armchairs around the stone fireplace to robin’s-egg blue dining chairs, are both stylish and comfortable. Deep blue cabinets and sand-hued stone countertops bring the colors of the beach into the fully equipped kitchen. A main house and guest house with two bedrooms each can be used to give couples privacy or even as honeymoon suites. The main house bedrooms have king beds; one has an en-suite bath and fireplace, and the other has a shared bath. In the guest house, you’ll find one bedroom with a king bed and one with a queen; both have shared baths. Pale blues, greens and yellows are paired with whitewashed beamed ceilings for a dreamy, airy vibe in the bedrooms. Though it’s just a 4-minute walk from Marea to Carmel River State Beach, there are four other beaches within a 10-mile drive where you can stroll and sunset-watch to your heart’s content. If you’re on holiday to tee off, test your skill on the oceanfront links of the courses at Pebble Beach—or just visit to take in the views. Find local spots for shopping and dining in the nearby village of Carmel-by-the-Sea, or spend a day in Monterey to see Old Fisherman’s Wharf, historic Cannery Row and the incredible kelp forest exhibit at Monterey Bay Aquarium.
