The location of Hofsas House Hotel cannot be beat. It is truly a couple blocks from the heart of Carmel, yet it sits on a hill that offers views of the area that you cannot find elsewhere. A heated swimming pool is on site, which is not common to the area, due to the size of the lots.

I personally appreciate the fact that each room is unique, as there are not two spacious rooms that are identical on the property. This adds to the charm that you will not find in any other hotel in the area.

I’d highly recommend spending a full day in the town of Carmel By The Sea. There’s a lot to explore in this slice of American scenery. The ocean is a short walk from Hofsas House Hotel, with beauty that you simply cannot find elsewhere.

The coastal views here are out of this world, as are the beautiful cypress trees that are common in this area. If this doesn’t get you in a coastal mind, Carmel’s world famous 17 mile drive will take you there.
