The house is nice in a beautiful location one block from the beach, but it's not one of the more charming houses of Carmel. We had the front corner room on the second floor; it's a small room with a small bathroom, clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was very good, fruit and cereal, followed by a delicious...

My mom and I stayed in one of the rooms without a view, but it's a super cozy room with a king size bed. Room is definitely not big enough for 3 people, but for two, it is perfect. The common area is super quaint, with cookies/snack available all throughout the day. Breakfast was very yummy as well. Not only... More

This is a hotel quality B&B. Impeccable service, nice specious rooms and excellent cooked breakfast. The beach is just a 2min walk but the city center is a bit far to walk (but absolutely doable if you're keen). I only regret not spending more nights here...

A very pleasant, quiet, B+B style hotel in a quiet neighbourhood. Set in attractive gardens with ample parking either on the premises or the street. Located around a mile from downtown Carmel and right next to Carmel River Beach. It's a pleasant 15-20 minute stroll up to the shops/restaurants in the centre of town but take a flash-light if you...

Very nice little and cozy room. It was also very clean and I felt like home. The house is very pretty and welcoming. Delicious breakfast in the morning and many options. Hotel was close to the beach and 20 minutes walking to the downtown area. I would stay maybe 2 nights in Carmel to have time to explore more but... More

This beautiful BnB is just one block from the beautiful Carmel bay/beach. We had a room for 3 (me, my husband and our 16-yr.-old son.) Our room had an outside entrance, with a lovely fire pit just outside our door! The room was large, with a king and single bed, and a (VERY) small bathroom. The beds were extremely comfortable,...

The Sandpiper was an excellent choice for visiting Carmel with the location being only about 100 yards from the scenic drive/walk by the beach. The room was very pleasant and the service and breakfast very good. Parking was free and it was about a 20 minute walk to the downtown area. We slept with the window open and could hear... More

I've been going to this wonderful B&B for about 15 years. After going there again this weekend I have to say my enthusiasm for it is unchanged. It is great. Location. It is about a 20 minute brisk walk from the busy downtown area (if you are so inclined). We usually walk to dinner along the ocean and then up... More
