Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We live in a hill top adult gated community of single level townhomes just 7 minutes from Carmel village center. Our deck offers a view of the Cypress forest and Carmel hills. We have a 2 bedroom, 2 bath home with all the amenities to make for a comfortable stay. The community includes an exercise room and indoor pool. There are also a small restaurant, library, and receptionist on hand in the clubhouse. Monterey Peninsula is comprised of Carmel, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove and Monterey. This is a year-round vacation destination known for unmatched natural beauty, unspoiled seascapes, art galleries, storybook homes, wineries, history--and GOLF. We are experienced exchangers. We might consider a car exchange: we have a 2019 Honda CRV. We are eager to resume our travels and are hoping you will consider the amazing Carmel-Monterey area.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

We are only 7-10 minutes from the center of Carmel village, which is renowned for its beach, fine dining, storybook homes, art galleries, and unique shopping opportunities.
Nearby Pacific Grove (a 10-15 minute drive) is a lovely Victorian town famous for its Monarch butterflies, Cannery Row, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It is the starting/ending point of the spectacular 17 Mile Drive with scenic seascapes and the Pebble Beach Golf Club between Carmel and Asilomar Beach in Pacific Grove. The Monterey Wharf has fine restaurants and whale-watching and fishing cruises depart from there. Monterey is also remarkable for early California historical sights including homes and hangouts of various
literary figures who wrote and lived here. Point Lobos State Park is only 10 minutes south of our home and not to miss for breathtaking views, otters, sea lions and whales. Continuing south for 30 minutes takes you along the most spectacular section of Highway 1 to Big Sur with its rustic artist enclaves (including the quirky Arthur Miller museum) and Pfeiffer's State Park and Beach. A stop at Nepenthe's is a must for its restaurant and shop. If you continue south, Hearst Castle and San Simeon are ideal overnight stops.
Santa Cruz is a worthwhile drive approximately 40 minutes from Carmel.
