Lodging: I recommend Mission Ranch, and your choice of many hotels near downtown Carmel for easy access to dining and the beach. Carmel Ranch is lovely, AirB&B, VRBO, B&B’s and nearby campgrounds offer you a range of options based on your budget. Book early for more options.
Flights: There is a Shuttle to the San Jose Airport, or just rent a car and drive down. Monterey Airport is about 30 minutes away from Carmel.
