Unique cottage with true Carmel character, close to everything you need.
We walked every day, to the beach, to the shops, in the woods on Mission trail just up
the street. Our dog came with us everywhere, so we all had a wonderful vacation. Serendipity is well equipped in the kitchen, as well as throughout the bedrooms and baths. Everything was there that we would need.
Barbara responded very nearly immediately to our request for getting the DVD player to
"talk" to the TV, and we were able to enjoy a number of movies that we checked out of the Carmel library.
Weather permitting, there is a lovely patio with tables and chairs, where we ate a few
lunches and enjoyed the bright flowers in the garden.
There is adequate parking for two cars, very important! We had a great month at
The location cannot be beat! Walk to everything!
We loved staying at Serendipity. We found a 5 mile circle walk, through Mission Trail Park, around the point, Carmel Beach, and back up (!) Ocean Avenue. It was fun to mix that up a bit by heading down side streets and checking out the beautiful homes. Serendipity has a lovely front courtyard with huge, old cypress tree in front of the fence, which made the upstairs bedroom seem like a tree house. Check out the window seat in the dining room, which became my coffee spot. The house is quite old and could use some refurbishing, which is why I only gave it 4 stars, but that is part of its great charm. We would definitely stay here again.
My husband and I had an extended stay at Serendipity. The location is absolutely perfect. You are just two blocks from downtown Carmel, and a short walk to the beach. The home is fully furnished with everything that you could possibly need. We had our small dog with us, and the fully fenced front and back yard was great for him. I didn't have to worry about him getting out at all. There is plenty of parking. I would highly recommend this property for a short or long term stay. The owners were great to work with.
