The fourth stop of our Family Staycation Series brings us to Hofsas House at Carmel-by-the-Sea.
Carmel is a majestic coastal town in Monterey County. It’s 116 miles south of San Francisco and about a 3 hour drive from Sacramento.
As romantic as Carmel is for couples, it’s also a safe and wonderful destination to enjoy for families with kids.

Hofsas House is a family-owned boutique inn that’s been in business for over 70 years. That’s a lot of history! Its iconic pink building can’t be missed! As soon as you see it, you know you’ve reached Carmel.
Its pet friendly accommodations make it perfect for those traveling with their four-legged friends.
It’s located just 3 blocks away from Ocean Avenue and is walking distance to Carmel Beach.
The 2 bedroom suite has plenty of room for families and includes a massive private balcony overlooking the pines and a glimpse of the ocean.

If your kids are like mine and want to swim no matter how cold it is, there’s an outdoor pool that’s heated year round. We’ve swam here in the winter and immediately run to the dry sauna afterwards. Extra towels can also be found in the restrooms.
Continental breakfast is available in the lobby with pastries from a local bakery, fruits, coffee and tea. Various snacks can also be delivered to your room like a bottle of wine & select cheeses.
We enjoyed our time here at Hofsas House. It was nice to get away from the Sacramento heat. (Yes, it’s still 100 degrees where we live.) The salty air and cool nights were such a treat!
Thank you, Hofsas House, for hosting us!
