We stayed at the Sea View Inn during our honeymoon in January 2009 and had a fabulous time. The location was perfect for walking to the beach and walking into downtown Carmel. We got lucky and had 80 degree weather during our stay (outrageous for January!), and enjoyed sunsets on the beach, early morning walks, and the beautiful 17-mile Drive. Our hosts at the Sea View Inn were wonderful, providing us with delicious wine and appetizers during our stay. We stayed in Room 9, which was absolutely charming and perfect for a romantic getaway. I will defnitely return to the Sea View Inn on subsequent visits to Carmel - We loved it!
