Going into this weekend I had high expectations, the review's of Karmin's home are near perfect... so imagine my surprise to find that it was FAR BETTER than I really was expecting! Karmin is the epitome of a "super host" adding the most thoughtful touches to make her already stunning home, that much more special. We had never been to an airbnb with a shared space component, always worried it would be less relaxing or we'd be in the way, but in this case that perception not have been more wrong. At least I hope we weren't in Karmin's way :). I do not know how she has found a bed made of clouds but I will search the rest of my life to try and recreate that comfort. Even as I am writing this, I am worried that contributing to the positivity surrounding this space will mean that we are never able to come back, because it will always be booked. It was that wonderful. Coffee, tea, snacks, wine, AND HOMEMADE COOKIES?! The firetable experience takes the cake though, easy to use, mesmerizingly relaxing, comfy chairs, and cozy blankets so that we were able to enjoy it late into the cold night. Thank you, Karmin. We had a legendary time in Carmel Valley.

As other reviewers have stated, Karmin's home is lovely and our stay was wonderful as she has truly thought through every detail to give her guests a great experience! She was super helpful showing us around when we arrived, with space cleared in the fridge and pantry for us. She left fresh chocolate chip macadamia cookies in our room (so good), along with a pitcher of water, and she has really nice toiletries in the bathroom with a closet full of extras in case you forgot anything. Her home is very clean, the bed was super comfortable and it was just the quiet and relaxing experience we were hoping for after spending the day exploring nearby Point Lobos and downtown Carmel by the Sea. The views from the deck are stunning! We really enjoyed relaxing by the fire pit with some wine in the evening and having our morning coffee taking in the mountains and valley below. Karmin suggested a few local spots for breakfast and we had a delicious brunch at Lucia's at Bernardus just down the road before heading out of town. We would definitely stay here again, thank you Karmin!

Karmin's guest comments are extremely positive, and our experience staying at Karmin's house was consistent with those comments - exceptional. From the moment we requested to stay at her house, her outstanding communication, the beautiful and clean house, and the continental breakfast - all exceeded our expectations. This is truly a wonderful place to stay!

Karmin was so helpful and accommodating. She even helped me troubleshoot problems with Airbnb when I was first joining. Her house is gorgeous, clean, spacious, and peaceful. You could have a lovely vacation just watching the clouds drift by. Karmin welcomed us with a thorough tour of the place, including showing us where extra snacks and condiments were located. In our room we found freshly baked cookies and lemon water. She baked us chocolate and almond croissants both mornings. She was super helpful with recommendations for Carmel Valley. She even loaned ma a raincoat when I had forgotten mine. I highly recommend this place.

Spectacular house! The morning view of the mountain is worth the stay alone. Karmin was a very gracious host, welcoming us to her house and showing us around. She made us cookies at night and croissants the next morning. She provided plenty of recommendations for wineries and local restaurants. Wish we could've stayed longer! The proximity to wine tastings and Carmel by the Sea (full of restaurants and boutique shops) was great. Highly highly highly recommend staying here! Her cats are super friendly. :)
