Carmel was the first stop in our tour of Northern California. We stayed at Edgemere in the Patio Room for 4 nights.
- incredible hosts: Gretchen you are amazing and Doug you are great. Riffraff and Magenta (resident cats) you are simply adorable.
- excellent location: in a residential neighborhood, super charming and picturesque, and just 1 block away from one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen and a 10 minute walk from the Missio
- lovely room: spotless, equipped with everything you may need (I mostly appreciated the heater), super quiet and cozy, very confortable bed, nice and warm blankets... You don't hear noise from the streets and though the room is in the main house we didn't hear anything (TV, kitchen noise etc.). we could fully unwind there.
- mouthwatering breakfast: homecooked, different every day, one of the best memories of my holiday, especially the strawberry French toast DELICIOUS not to mention the quiches and the muffins, all accompanied by coffee, tea, juice and fresh fruit...The dining room where breakfast is served had the warmth of the things that make a home feel really lived in, with lots of books, newspapers, and family things.
- parking: . Parking space is available directly in front of the house
- Riffraff and Magenta: adorable and purring tabby cats, always ready for some cuddling.
Nothing I can think of, apart from the cold and humid weather that doesn't obviously depend on anyone!
