Come enjoy the beauties of Monterey County during the best time of the year when the marine layer has departed with its fog and the beaches are full of sunshine. Our home is in Carmel Valley Village, 12 miles from Carmel Beach, recently voted one of the two most beautiful beaches in the world. Drive to Big Sur, check out the famous Pebble Beach Resort and Golf Links, wander through the world-renowned Monterey Aquarium. Walk through the art galleries and shops of the delightful Carmel-by-the-Sea...or just walk out your front door and visit one of the 20 or so wine tasting rooms a few steps away, the lovely community park where people and dogs frolic daily, and get a few yummies at our French grocery store Jerome's. If you are golfers, you'll find plenty of choices to swing your clubs. Hikers enjoy the 52 trails at Garland Park, a few miles down the road. Our complex of 38 homes is on a private cul-de-sac. We have a pool, hot tub and clubhouse for residents' use. Our unit is two-stories with the master suite on the ground floor, a TV room/den, bedroom and bath upstairs. We have wifi and cable, an outdoor grill, laundry, well outfitted kitchen and dining area. We can even offer a car if one is needed. We are seeking a friendly, responsible companion or two to care for our beloved 13-year-old Australian labradoodle. She is small, about 35 pounds, very friendly and easy-going. She loves walks in the community park with its grass and walkways. Our vet is just a a block away. Watering the house plants will be helpful, as well, though the outside plants will likely not need much attention. Neighbors are friendly and the living is easy. Let me know if you might be interested in having a couple of weeks in our beautiful environment.
