“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

My wife and I spent a weekend at the Vagabond's House Inn for our wedding. The service is incredible, the people are extremely friendly, and the property is wonderful. The room was nice, very spacious, and had everything we needed. The wine and cheese in the evenings was a nice touch, and the front desk recommended several excellent restaurants and made reservations for us. Absolutely perfect weekend.

My wife and I spent two days at the Vagabond House during our early October honeymoon. The second we walked into the courtyard area, we knew we picked the perfect place. It looks exactly like the pictures you've seen here on tripadvisor. Impeccable and serene stonework, gardening, and water features. It's like they took a snapshot of a peaceful dream and brought it to life. The room we stayed in was equally impressive. A mix of cozy and comfortable, peaceful and functional. The breakfast that we had each morning was simple and delicious. And the innkeeper, Thomas, was a kind and knowledgeable host. He was an ideal compliment to this inn.

We can't wait for a return visit to the Vagabond. It was the bee's knees.

The Vagabond's House Inn is located in the charming village of Carmel-by-the-Sea on California's Central Coast and is just a few blocks from Carmel Beach but within easy walking distance of all the shops & restaurants in the village. Top notch accommodations, location & service plus a delivered to your room breakfast each morning.

Just returned from our annual R&R trip to our favorite spot, The Vagabond Inn, in beautiful Carmel By The Sea. At check-in we were warmly greeted by Randall who went above and beyond to provide us with the best service for a successful stay. The Inn has thirteen delightful rooms and we have stayed in many of them but our favorite is room three. It provides a lovely view of the enchanting courtyard as well as the sounds of the soothing waterfall. The fireplace gives us coziness we can't experience in Houston. We especially enjoy the Happy Hour with wine and cheese from 4 to 6 daily, It gives us a great opportunity to chat with other guests. Thomas and Randall, the greatest innkeepers ever, are knowledgable, warm,friendly and able to fulfill almost any request. We have been staying at The Vagabond Inn for over 20 years. After Thomas and Randall took over as innkeepers we saw a great improvements in all aspects of management. We had a wonderful 11 night stay and look forward to booking our room for next year.

Room Tip: I did this in my comment.

We stayed one night at the Vagabond Inn on our way down Highway 1 to Los Angeles. It was great and I cannot praise the staff enough for their willingness and charm to make our stay delightful. They were a wealth of information and helped us with a dinner reservation and even suggested a great cafe to stop at on our way down the coast the nest day. In regard to the room it was huge with a comfy bed and a large sitting area, small kitchen and bathroom - you could have stayed for a week and been very comfortable. The small touches like a bowl of fruit in the kitchen and sherry in the sitting room make such a difference when you are travelling. The inn is decorated with care to create an atmosphere of comfort - we felt very welcomed and relaxed.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the property away from the road if slight road noise disturbs your sle...

It's difficult to try to capture the uniqueness of this property. It is in perfect harmony with Carmel, different, beautiful, relaxed, quirky, romantic, comfortable

Staff are very helpful and their recommendations for restaurants were accurate the location is excellent for exploring Carmel
