I write this from a room with a view of the ocean, listening to the surf, following breakfast in the center house of this very special and unique lodging. A block from the ocean, and 0.7 mile pleasant walk to the cluster of cafes and shops, this is the best location in Carmel ( well, the best available to a tourist, the residences nearby right on the ocean are amazing). The other reviews accurately describe the numerous pleasant features of this inn, although I think the gardens deserve special praise too. I just wanted to give an example of what others have described as a very pleasant staff that is accommodating. I mentioned at breakfast that I didn't see any non-fat yogurt ( plenty of fruity sugary fructose versions are always available ) . The manager went to the store and brought back terrific plain healthy non-fat yogurt. These folks are the best. There are numerous choices within Carmel, and over several decades we have been to several. This is my third stay here, and I think this is the best.
