Our favorite description for Carmel, Pebble Beach, Carmel Highlands, Carmel Valley, Monterey and Pacific Grove are that together they are a sophisticated Podunk.

Where else can you live in such a beautiful place, close to the sea and far from the hubbub and madness of major metropolitan areas and enjoy a variety of cultural activities found usually only in big cities? Plus the dining is superb with great restaurants scattered all over the Peninsula.

Paul, who lives in Carmel just a few hundred feet from Sunset Center, a world class theater, has wandered across the street from his house to hear Itzhak Perlman, :Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Pink Martini, Burl Ives, Queen Ida, Julliard String Quartet and many others. Where else can you do that in a town of 3,800 residents?

Hi Brenda
Seaside, Oregon is a very safe community as a whole and have 2 full service Hospitals within 20 miles. One is in Seaside and the other in Astoria. Rentals are a tad scarce in the summer, but there are some. There are several property mangement companies, Beach Property Management is a very well run outfit. They can be reached at 503 738 9068.

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask. We are a very helpful bunch here on the North Oregon Coast. Best of luck.
