We spent four wonderful nights at the Vagabound's House in cottage #5. We loved the sound of the fountain each night and enjoyed using our fireplace in the evening when the sun went down. The staff was friendly and offered to help with our luggage when we arrived. We were close enough to restaurants and stores to walk and enjoyed... More

We stayed in nr 5 and the too was spacious and charming! The bed was comfortable and room was clean! Bathroom was a nice size.

I really loved the Vagabond House. We just returned from celebrating our 20 wedding anniversary. The bed was amazingly comfortable, the fireplace was so cozy at night, they had champagne waiting for us, and loved having my breakfast brought to me. The location was perfect for us too. It's a close walk to Ocean Ave and the beach, but away... More

If you want luxury and want to be pampered in a very comfortable environment and in a good location in Carmel, this sure is a great place for it. Pretty much everything was excellent... room, general facilities, service, cleanliness, amenities, parking, location, finishing touches, attention to detail, friendliness. Only criticism is the relatively high price, but then again, it was... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during our honeymoon and had the most amazing stay. The whole experience was top notch and the service was incredible. We were greeted by Thomas when we arrived who couldn't have been more friendly, welcoming and helpful. He gave us a map of Carmel and explained where everything was, he had a great range... More

We had such a great time at Vagabonds. The room, service and location were all fantastic. We had such a chilled out time here and it was a great base for Carmel, Monterey and heading down to Big Sur. Would definitely recommend as a place to stay in Carmel. Great breakfast too!

We had a lovely stay at Vagabonds. Our room, although being one of the smaller on offer, was cozy and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and despite having some initial reservations about eating in our room, we actually enjoyed lounging around rather than dressing for a dining room. The hotel is in an excellent location for the shops and restaurants... More

We got lucky and found a room here at a few days' notice for a spontaneous weekend getaway to the coast. Stayed only one night, but it was a lovely and memorable stay. The location of the inn itself is on a cute, sleepy residential street that feels very neighborhoody, while being just a block or two away from the... More

Although we were able to stay for only 8 hours due to flight complications, this inn was truly worth that stay. The gas fireplace was surprisingly comforting in mid July after a literally hard day's night at the airport, the complimentary not-too-sweat cream sherry was amazingly inviting, and the breakfast in the room overlooking the courtyard was one of the...
