Written By: Jackie Bryant Checking In Tonight: Top 6 Airbnb Rentals in Carmel

Skip the hotel and tuck yourself into one of these stylish and cozy retreats for your next trip to the Central Coast.

Carmel-by-the-Sea is an idyllic retreat for Californians of all kinds: a NorCal techie, SoCal surfer or anything in between. Located just down the road from Monterrey, the village is known for its quaint cottages, small-town charm and natural beauty. There are plenty of hotels, inns and B&Bs, but we think the best and most authentic way to check out Carmel is to live as a local and stay in one of these Airbnb cottages.

 

Pebble Beach Nook

For the golfers in your life, you need look no further than this gorgeous cottage. Located within the Pebble Beach main entrance, it’s just 2 miles down the road from the world-famous Pebble Beach Links Golf Course and equidistant from Carmel Village. Luxuriously furnished, it’s pet-free but fully stocked with WiFi, towels, and anything else you could need for your stay.

 

Mid-Century Modern Ocean Views

Architecture buffs will appreciate this stylish and rustic mid-century modern hideaway tucked in the woods in the hills overlooking Monterey Bay. The rock terrace is perfectly situated for sunset cocktails, and the house is close to several biking trails.

 

Airy Pebble Beach Retreat

This bright, airy house has room for eight and a great deck that’s designed for entertaining out back. Two living areas make this ideal for larger groups, offering plenty of space for all guests. Close to Pacific Grove and just one mile walk from the beach, this house is a great choice for bigger groups or large families.

 

Chic and Zen

This cottage covers cute, chic, and zen—all things you want out of your Central Coast getaway. Located 10 minutes from the beach, within an industrial Monterey neighborhood, booking this property will land you two Monterey Aquarium passes to sweeten the deal. While the interior is cozy and impeccably designed, the outdoor Zen Spa is the centerpiece of the place. Enjoy a soaking tub, fire pit, outdoor refrigerator and outdoor shower.

 

Luxurious Ocean Views with Hotel Amenities

For all the benefits of luxury properties without the overhead and hassle, this intimate apartment is our best bet. Along with stunning ocean views, you’ll have access to facilities at the Hyatt Carmel Highlands. While you may not want to leave the balcony, you’re just a short drive to Carmel village, Monterey, Pebble Beach or any of the other beaches nearby.

 

Unforgettable and Intimate

Our most expensive option comes with unrivalled peace and tranquility. The home sits on a private cove in Yankee Point making it perfect for larger groups. Large windows dot the entire house giving you full access to the stunning views outside. The cliffside terrace is equipped with a fire pit with stunning views of the coastline. The whole places gives you the perfect excuse to crack open a bottle of Napa red and enjoy the sunset with friends and family. Afterwards, you can have a dip in the large hot tub.
