Perfect place to stay in Carmel. Within walking distance of the beach, dining, and shopping. Very private, the courtyard makes it feel like you're in an English garden in the country. Staff was courteous and our room was clean and very comfortable. The fountain outside of our window made for extra ambiance. Lovely!

We very sadly only had one night here on our trip down the coast but it was a lovely night!! We were made to feel so welcome and at home and nothing was too much trouble. The attention to detail in the rooms is fantastic - from the super comfy beds, to the fires, to the fully equipped kitchen to... More

I've never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, but I don't think the vagabond is a common bed and breakfast. Each room is a cluster of cottages with separate rooms on the first and second floor. The property is absolutely charming. The feeling is very English country side. We first booked their smaller Queen size room with a private... More

After 7 hour drive to Carmel we checked in to the quaint Vagabond gem. We quickly realised that I had made an error via web and reserved the previous night! The staff and manager were very gracious and helped accommodate us in an even nicer room. Room was lovely with kitchen, fireplace and bed was very comfortable. Breakfast to order... More

Probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed! Lovely location and our room was immaculate. It was really cosy with a working fireplace and the bed was super comfortable. Wonderful breakfasts delivered to your room on a tray. The staff also noted it was our honeymoon and went out of their way to make our stay memorable... More

I stayed here (in room 10) with my boyfriend in October 2014, just for a night, on our way down the Californian coast. The Inn is beautiful, the staff very helpful and the rooms are extremely well decorated with fantastic gadgets (we have since bought a Moxie for our bathroom). I have to say the bed is the comfiest we... More

This cozy little inn is so comfortable and clean I wish we could have stayed more than one night. Stay in room 10 if you can. The deep soaker tub is great to relax and the wood burning fire place creates a very romantic setting. It was still cool outside when we stayed so the heated floors in the bathroom... More

Vagabond's House is the best place to stay in Carmel. It's right in the heart of Carmel downtown, but it's quiet and a little off the path so you don't hear any of the hustle and bustle of the main drag. The staff is so friendly and they go the extra mile to make sure your stay is pleasant and... More
