We are welcoming you into our home and our beloved (and residential) neighborhood! Please join us in being good Neighbors, below are a few ways to do that.
There is no smoking anywhere on the property or adjacent streets.
We provide for your use garbage and recycling cans behind a closed gate, out of sight.
Parking: There is no parking on San Antonio Ave, please park right in front of our house (on Santa Lucia) if that space is available. Note that there are occasionally white, vertical posts in carmel upon which is written "No Parking" for example on the south side of Santa Lucia between Scenic Road and San Antonio Ave.
Before walking at night, stop and notice that there are few sidewalks and fewer streetlights in Carmel's residential neighborhoods. We provide several flashlights in a drawer right next to the refrigerator. Take them along on your sunset-watching beach walk to make sure cars see you as you walk home.

Mike's place is a great location in Carmel. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 1 mile walk to great shops and restaurants. The place is very clean and has great amenities. We really enjoyed the goodies that were left for us. Thanks for a great stay!

Perfect location! Very quiet and private yet a short walk to the beach and easy walk to the many restaurants of Carmel. We felt welcome and enjoyed all of the extras in the apartment, just like we were at home! We have also recently stayed at a local 4.5 star hotel and while it was a nice, we preferred our stay at Mike and Carol's airbnb! It was cozy and our favorite place in Carmel for some downtime and a romantic weekend. We will definitely be back!

This is an amazing place to stay at; Carol and Mike were wonderful hosts. The place itself is so close to everything, walking distance to the beach, close to nice restaurants, and everything you need to enjoy your stay in Carmel. Mike and Carol provided us with ideas on places to dine at and activities that we might enjoy. Overall, it was an amazing experience, the house is great and a perfect place to stay. Everything you need is there! We would definitely spend another week there if we had the time.

Fabulous stay with the most generous and lovely hosts. The location is spectacular, we loved being able to easily stroll along the sea in such a beautiful area. The home is charming, comfortable and has all you need plus more. We really appreciate all the goodies, fresh flowers, maps, passes, Nespresso, card, and great selection of tv/movies. Thank you for sharing your home, for the vegan suggestions, such a gracious welcome, and the ability to extend an extra night. We look forward to returning again.

Mike and Carol are friendly hosts and have possibly the most well equipped apartment we have stayed in among the many we have tried on Airbnb. It was even more comfortable than being in our own home!

A perfect stay in Carmel. All the fixings needed for a quiet and enjoyable accommodation. Fully stocked kitchen and bathroom, entertainment with games/books/tv, extra blankets and supplies for beach going, and comfortable bed/furnishings. Love the heated bathroom floor. Bring your slippers and enjoy your stay, you won't ever want to stay elsewhere! Extremely gracious hosts.

Mike User ProfileMike is a superhost.

Carol and I found our Carmel house some 18 years ago and are excited to now be able to offer our newly decorated guest quarters with visitors met through Airbnb. We live with two cats Mia and Greyson -- you may see them about and they do not have permission to enter your guest quarters although they may try and convince you otherwise.
We are both at the end of our work careers, so will generally be around if you would like a glass of wine or coffee/tea and/or want details on the surrounds. Otherwise you don't need to see us as there is a lockbox outside the door that you will have the combination for.
