Carmel and surrounding areas visit this August

We stayed in Carmel last September and fell in love with the people and area. We are returning this August and wasn't sure if we should base ourselves solely in Carmel for five nights or in any of the surrounding areas.

We went as far south as Big Sur last time and never really visited Monterey but could do so from Carmel. Are there other places along the coast further south that would be worth a night stay or should we stay in the Beautiful city for the full 5 nights?

Thank you

Carmel, California...

I just rented a house for a week in Carmel in July but now I am seeing these posts about renting being illegal if shorter than 30 days. Based on the map of where the rental is located, I believe it is located outside of the 1 square mile - it is also on the other side of Highway 1. I hope I am not breaking any rules.

If it is on the east side of Highway 1, it is definitely outside the city limits.
