About the Property
House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
Our special and spacious five-bed / five-bath ranch-style home is located on five-acres in the estate area of Carmel commonly known as Jacks Peak. Although secluded and quiet, it is conveniently and centrally situated between Carmel and Monterey. You will be just minutes from anywhere on the entire Monterey Peninsula, yet surrounded by majestic oak and pine trees, with a huge yard in which to play.
Built in the 40’s, remodeled in the 60’s and recently updated, this home is perfect for family vacations, corporate retreats, and other special occasions. It is a wonderful place to gather for a family reunion, anniversary or important birthday celebration.
If you are interested please be aware that our property, while centrally located, is surrounded by five-acre estates with neighbors who appreciate this unique natural setting. In consideration of our neighbors, we have limits on the size and nature of parties, loud music or noisy activities (especially outside) and on anything that may disrupt the neighborhood. The property is not a venue for large parties or events.
All five bedrooms have queen beds and each bedroom has its own bathroom with shower. The house sleeps 10 comfortably. There is ample floor space and we have a couple of airbeds and mats to accommodate more, especially children, if needed.
Amenities include a cozy hot tub for two on a large deck off the master bedroom, with a custom-built in-ground hot tub for larger groups just a few steps away. Croquet, basketball, badminton, volleyball, bocce ball and Frisbee equipment are all located on-site and there is plenty room to play. There is a large front lawn that is seasonally green when rain is available. There is also a large brick patio with tables, chairs and fireplace that can be used in the winter. No outside fires are permitted during fire season (generally April - Nov).
Both the large living room and master bedroom have fireplaces. The living room has a vintage piano, two sofas, two club chairs, a corner TV and stereo. The French doors in the living room open onto a welcoming, bright, brick-floor enclosed Lanai with skylights.
The dining room has a table that is made for eight but will easily seat 10. Many a family gathering has led to improvised (yet cramped) seating for up to 12. French doors lead to a large backyard deck, which features a large table with six chairs, a small table with two chairs, a built-in bench and two lounge chairs. There is a five-burner gas grill and two propane heaters.
Off the dining room is a modest fully stocked kitchen with a large work island and windows to the wooded backyard. There is also a kitchen nook (host to many beautiful sunrises), with a small dining table, bench and four chairs.
The four bedrooms on the main floor, the living room, dining room, and hallways all feature oak hardwood floors. The kitchen floor is refinished fir. Area rugs are mostly oriental. Each bedroom has an attached bathroom, with shower.
The daylight downstairs has recently been renovated with new carpet and tile. It features a large, bright bedroom with a built-in desk and views of the garden, a bathroom, small 11 X 13 play area and laundry facilities.

Great location to track. Very quiet. Lovely owners to deal with. Awesome library! Wifi could be faster :)
We rented this house for a week to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. This house is in a great location. It is quiet and secluded and while there we saw deer and lots of different birds that flew down to drink water from several pottery containers on the back deck. Despite the seclusion it is just five minutes from the Del Monte shopping center with great restaurants like California Pizza Kitchen, P.F. Chang's, and Lalla Oceanside Grill. There is a Macy's plus many specialty stores. There is also a Whole Foods for groceries and a Rite Aid. Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row are only a few minutes farther. Our children and grandchildren came for the Labor Day weekend. The bedrooms are large and one family set up two twin size air mattresses for their children on the floor next to the queen bed. The twin air mattresses as well as two queen size air mattresses are part of the amenities the owners provide. When our children and grandchildren left two couples we often travel with came to spend the remainder of the week. They loved the house. While it is old it is neat and clean. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom which is convenient and affords privacy. The living room is large with plenty of comfortable seating. There is a dining room with a large table and the kitchen has table as well. There are lots of windows to look out at the forest that surrounds the house. The large back deck is a great place to sit, enjoy a favorite beverage, and take in the amazing surroundings. The master bedroom was very big and at the other end of the house from the kitchen and other bedrooms. When we closed the door it was very quiet. To sum it all up this is a great house for a large family gathering. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would definitely stay there again.
Very quiet and private yet only a few minutes to Carmel’s downtown and to Monterey. Large, well furnished house with everything in great order. Very comfortable beds. Huge master bedroom and living room. It was ideal for my group of four. A wonderful house!
