Hofsas Family Run Hotel in the Heart of Carmel-By-The-Sea
In the heart of Carmel-By-The-Sea, built into a hill side overlooking the mighty Pacific, family owned and operated Hofsas House Hotel offers magnificent sunset views from their 4th floor deck area. Bavarian chalet-style architecture and outdoor mural painted by Maxine Albro are defining exterior characteristics while inside, many of Hofsas' 38 spacious rooms include fireplaces, private balconies, wet bars, and partial kitchens.
Continental breakfast each morning is a casual affair served in the living room lobby with pastries delivered each morning from a local bakery, French Roast coffee, fresh juice, fruit, and yogurt accompanied with trays and carafes for loading up to enjoy back in your room if you wish.
Outside you have access to a year-round heated swimming pool and saunas while walking to the village center just several blocks away takes you past fairy tale cottages and modern ranches clustered around boutique shopping, art galleries, and Arroyo Seco AVA winery tasting rooms like Manzoni Cellars and Shale Canyon.
5th Avenue Deli is the perfect place to gather your provisions for a picnic lunch before heading down Ocean Ave. to Carmel Beach which is spacious enough to be off leash dog friendly while leaving plenty of room for those who instead wish to retreat into serenity. Dinner presents many options but Beach House at Lovers Point in neighboring Pacific Grove overlooking the Pacific is renowned for ultra fresh seafood dishes like Panko Crusted Sand Dabs and Scallops Pot Pie while catching a magnificent sunset.
