The hansel and gretel style of houses are beautiful. You feel you are in a fairy tale amongst these houses. We would like to stay here and spend time on the beach the next time we are around.

Something for everyone here, from Kate Spade and Tiffany to Tommy Bahama. Pleasant walk around a very cute village. The Hamptons of the West.

I love this place. It is a cozy and little village with shopping and great food! I love the b&b lamplighter Inn. The whole place is cute and warm, just lije fairy tale. I will definitely return!

What happened to this quaint little place ? There are estate jewelry places on each block, where there were once bakeries and coffee, and more unique places to shop. I have been here twice in the past month taking out of town visitors to Northern California and they all were impatient to leave and get either back to nature or... More

Carmel Village is a very low-key, laid-back way to spend an unhurried afternoon. Like most popular tourist destinations, however, almost everything for sale (including souvenirs, retail goods, clothing and food/drink) is quite expensive, but it doesn't cost anything to have fun window-shopping!

Took a walk around Carmel village, and what a pretty little town it is! Boutique shops a plenty. Clean, safe and polite with a wicked beach at the bottom. You can window shop at estate agents and dream of having the money to move out here (a cheeky mil gets you a little house.) Parking is good along with one... More
