The Luv Shack is a bungalow/cabin/single room space, separate from the main house. Bathroom facilities are in the main house, coffee & tea, and mini fridge included in the Luv Shack. Guests may have use of outdoor bathtub and firepit as well.
The Luv Shack is set in a lush garden setting, with plenty of privacy. If you dont mind crossing the yard to use the bathroom facilities, you will love this place. It has a front porch and a private back yard sitting area with a beautiful mountain view. Kitchen facilities are limited to a mini fridge and toaster in the Luv Shack, and an electric water heater, with coffee and tea provided. There are restaurants galore within a 10 minute drive, and if you bring your own snacks, you should be very content here. We are only 5 minutes up Carmel Valley Road, so access to downtown Carmel (10 mins), Carmel beach (15 mins), Hwy. 1 South to Big Sur (40 mins), and North to Monterey (15 mins), East to Carmel Valley Village (15 mins) is all at your fingertips. The Luv Shack is perfect for people who enjoy a unique experience. If you are a writer, a painter, a poet, a musician, a nature lover, an adventurer, or a lover of all of the above, the Luv Shack is for you. If you are a person who generally prefers a standard setting, a fancy hotel, or is squeemish about nature, this might not be the place for you. Although this location is right on Carmel Valley Road, and close to town, it also at the edge of a mountain range and more in the country than the town. As a result, you might find a spider or two, or hear critters on your roof at night. But I keep it very clean and tidy. If you wish to have a bonfire at night, please bring your own wood, and enjoy the space (it is the coolest secret garden bon fire area, with an underground grotto that you can also enjoy). And if you feel like having an outdoor bath under the stars, that too may be yours if you like.
Guests have a private cabin/bungalow, with their own sitting deck, and private back sitting area, access to bathroom facilities in main house, use of firepit and outdoor bathtub.
Общение с гостями
The Luv Shack will have information on good restaurants in the area, hikes, beaches, and any fun community events going on at that time. Guests should feel free to to ask any questions they may have about anything regarding this area, as I am born and raised here and should be able to answer any questions. Also, guests should feel free to ask if they have any special requests or other questions. Guests should also keep in mind that the main house is my home, and therefore the respect that any guest should have in anyones home should be kept in mind. That being said, I am open and friendly and happy to help. Come on in at any time if you are using the bathroom, which is yours, of course, or if you have a question. Otherwise, the main house is off limits. If I am not home and a guest has a question, just call or text anytime and I will get back asap. Please just have the respect and common curtesy while staying here that you would expect of anyone staying with you.
Другие важные подробности
The Luv Shack has low ceilings and doorways. For those of you on the taller side, just be aware that there are a couple low doorways you may have to bend down a little to go through. It really is like a little hobbit house. Most of my taller guests have not minded, its not so low that is uncomfortable or anything, but just be aware of it.
The Luv Shack is dog friendly, with a $60 deposit. However, if you have a dog that has a barking problem, that does not get along with other dogs, or sometimes has accidents, please don't bring it along, sorry. You will not get your deposit back if you bring a problem dog. I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback female who loves everyone and everything and is very submissive. But she's big, so don't be afraid if you are not used to dogs. She's a big lovebug. And she does not bark. I also have a cat roaming the premises, so if your dog is an avid cat chaser, this also may not be the place for you.
Guests of the Luv Shack should feel free to come and go as please, at their leasure. After 10pm, guests should continue to enjoy themselves, while not being boisterous and loud. Have fun while having respect is how I live my life, and expect the same. If guests need to shower at a certain time, it is nice to be forewarned, as my brother and I both live here and there is only one bathroom. Although guests may have access to the outdoor bathtub and firepit, the rest of the yard is reserved for my personal use, unless invited.
