We had two nights here, and wish we'd scheduled more! Welcome from Randall was as warm as could be, and his local knowledge for dining was spot-on. Breakfast served only in the delightful rooms, or out in the patio in warm weather. Bedding and room furniture were well above average,and there was really nothing to fault the place. We would...

I stayed in two rooms (5a and 7), both had real charm and the sunset from 7 was gorgeous. I really appreciated the guys advice on places to go/walks to do, plus they got me dinner reservations at short notice on two nights using their personal contacts. lovely rooms, chilled out atmosphere.

This place was absolutely perfect for us! Our room was modern with heated floors, lighting sensors, beautiful linens, rich, plush furniture, and gorgeous setting! Room 11 was private, and gorgeously appointed. And their beds were the most comfortable ones we have ever slept in!! We even asked the inn keepers where they got them and they were more than happy...

This is a very nice inn with a beautiful and peaceful courtyard. Our room (#4) had a queen bed, fireplace, and kitchen facing the courtyard. The walls are very thin! We could hear the people next door (and their dog unfortunately). There is wine & cheese daily at 4pm and sherry in the room. Breakfast is simple but excellent –... More

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
