Studio 50 is a small one room house with bath, detached from the main house on a fenced-in property. Very quiet road, no street lights, 5 walking minutes to the center of CV Village.
Two guest passes for the Monterey Bay Aquarium included. Please ask for the passes upon arrival, or make arrangements to pick them up before check in via message. You will have to bring the cards back.
Kitchenette but NO KITCHEN SINK! There is one in the bathroom, of course....
CV Studio 50 is a very pleasant, bright and colorful room for two with shower and kitchenette with fridge/freeyer, microwave, toaster, espresso maker and water kettle. There are SIGHT blocking curtains, but no DAYLIGHT blocking curtains. Please refer to pictures.
We decided to turn the no longer needed den into a cozy guest room. The place is completely renovated and insulated. Carmel Valley Village is the center of wine tasting in beautiful sunny Carmel Valley. Excellent restaurants, cafe/bakery etc. We especially recommend Rustica and Corkscrew, Wild Goose for breakfast... and there are many more, all good.
We are located 5 min. walking distance from the center of the Village, where you'll find plenty of opportunities to enjoy yourself.
The Holman Ranch (weddings, special events, corporate retreats) is 2 min. from the Studio, the iconic Running Iron Restaurant & Saloon just down the road, over 20 wine tasting places, CV Market, art galleries and shopping. You reach Garland Regional Park (main entrance) in 5 minutes (driving), Carmel by the sea 12 mi., Pebble Beach 14,58mi., Laguna Seca Raceway 8,75 miles, Monterey Bay Aquarium 20 miles, Tassajara Zen Mountain Center 16 miles, Big Sur 43,28miles, Esalen Institute Big Sur 52,28 miles
If possible, don't miss Point Lobos, 25 minutes drive from us - a gem!
The best bakery of the Peninsula is located at the mouth of the Valley at the Barnyard Shopping Center:
Lafayette - everything you can think of a french bakery has to offer, best quality you can get.
And there is much more to enjoy, like whale watching, horse back riding golfing etc.... Carmel Valley enjoys at least such as 333 days of sunshine per year!

My husband Walter and I, Katia (short for Katharina) have lived on the property since 1997. We both were born, raised and educated in Switzerland.
Walter's business/workshop "Antique Art & Clock Restoration" (since 1971) is on the premises. You can check out his website
When he's home, you'll find him in his workshop most of the time.
I am a Jungian psychologist, counseling clients in my office at the main house.
We both love our little paradise in beautiful sunny California. For many years we have been restoring and remodeling the place. I'm the gardener, now trying to adapt to the California drought. Not an easy task, but we will get there.
We both welcome the opportunity to meet people from all over the world.
It is your choice if you want to share your experiences or not. The place provides complete privacy if you choose so - fine with us!
