Hofsas House is the best place to stay while visiting Carmel- June 2021

HOFSAS HOUSE- The best place to stay while visiting Carmel.




We had a beautiful spacious suite for 2 nights with beautiful views of the ocean in the distance.  A pleasant surprise was falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves with the light of the fireplace flames.  The suite had 2 separate rooms; 1 king bed and 2 day beds which were all very comfortable.  The two bathrooms had 3 sinks.  Wi-Fi, cable TV, a refrigerator, coffee maker and free parking was included..  Other amenities  included a continental breakfast; coffee, juice, yogurt, various cereals, fruit and muffins.  The heated outdoor pool and sauna provided an opportunity to relax after a long day. . One of the best amenities is the hotel location which is just blocks away from downtown Carmel and a mile walk to the beach.  The hotel staff was very welcoming and friendly. The hotel is spread out and is on three levels.   Great sunset views as well as one of the more beautiful beaches with a nice approx 20 stroll down to the beach.

Heated Swimming Pool

The Hofsas House has a year-round heated swimming pool for use by guests. This is quite a luxury in Carmel-by-the-Sea since most of the inns in the heart of the village are on small lots.

Dry Saunas

In the European tradition, there are two dry saunas, men’s and women’s, to enjoy after your swim or walk to the beach.

The Hofsas House was built into a hill that allows for magnificent ocean views from our forth floor deck area. This view deck area is a great place to sit, read, and enjoy a glass of wine while watching a glorious sunset.
