Daphne’s lavender farm is an absolute hotspot during a visit in Carmel Valley or on a trip down the coast. The rooms are cozy and you can sit with a Glas of wine on the porch and have a beautiful view over the fields of lavender in the mountains. To talk with Daphne is a pleasure and she is very helpful. Her muffins and caramels are delicious – fortunately you can buy the homemade caramels as a gift.” – Sinika & Ulf, Germany, June 2019

The Idaho Girls love Lion Springs Lavender Farm too! ?

If you are seeking a unique, quiet, calming experience in the Carmel Valley area, look no further. To describe this Lavender Farm as “charming” is an understatement. The wrap-around porch on this beautiful farmhouse provides ample and comfortable outdoor space to enjoy stunning mountain vistas. The spacious room with vaulted ceilings is appointed with high quality furnishings including a very comfortable king sized bed, beautiful flooring and all the usual amenities such as microwave and mini-fridge. The walls are adorned with beautiful original oil paintings by Daphne, which you will also find in a local art gallery in Carmel Valley. In the bathroom we were delighted to discover a gorgeous hammered copper sink. The charming light fixtures overhead are made of mason jars. Daphne provides samples of her delicious Carmel Caramels which she makes with the organic lavender grown on the farm. She also provides a sachet of her lavender, and because we were there in June we were treated to the most wonderful scents wafting through the air, as the lavender fields were blooming! The location is a perfect blend of mountain beauty and close enough proximity to the Pacific. Thanks to Daphne’s special touches, our stay in Carmel Valley will remain a favorite memory for years to come.” – John & Michelle from Talmadge, OH, May 2019


“Daphne’s home is absolutely exquisite. She is extremely welcoming and thoughtful, and will make sure you are comfortable in your stay. The vineyard and views of the valley are gorgeous! We enjoyed our time there and recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area! /Thank you so much for being so accommodating with our travel schedule, and for sharing your beautiful home with us! The vineyard was stunning and we were so happy to stay in such a beautiful, welcoming place!” – Tessa, Fairfield, CT,  June, 2019

“We knew Daphne’s place was going to be beautiful, but we had no idea truly how gorgeous it would be! Our room was so comfortable and spacious for the two of us and the view was *stunning*. Not just during the day, either! The stars are night were unbelievable! If you’re looking for a quaint, cozy, relaxing trip with great hiking, views, and wine – this is your place! We can’t wait to come back!” – Grace from Indianapolis, Indiana

“The views are breathtaking and the immersion is like no other! Plenty of suggested local favorites to guide your stay in Carmel.

Daphne’s house is in the most gorgeous setting, surrounded by mountains and vineyards. The guest suite is spacious and comfy, and we were serenaded by owls and coyotes at night. We loved her homemade lavender caramels! She is a lovely person and we loved meeting her husky, Ziggy. Great food nearby at Cafe Rustica. It was a treat to experience this little piece of paradise!” Janet from New York, NY

“Daphne is the perfect host! She allowed us to check in several hours early since we had a wedding to get to, and even offered to mail me a necklace I forgot in the room. She had delicious muffins for us to eat in the morning too which was a nice touch. The views from the room are spectacular and the room itself is stylish and comfortable. We will definitely be back!”  – Tina from Novato, CA

“Thank you so much for hosting us we had a great stay and really enjoyed your yummy caramels !” Tina from San Carlos, CA

We stayed one night at Daphne’s place during our trip down the California coast. As soon as we stepped onto this property, we wished we were staying so much longer! The pictures do not do this place justice. It is absolutely beautiful and Daphne was an amazing host. The place is stocked with anything you may need and her lavender caramels are INCREDIBLE. It truly brought tears to my eyes seeing the sunset from the porch. It may sound dramatic, but it’s absolutely true. I would recommend this place to anyone.” Janet  from Cleveland, OH

Charmant Airbnb dans un cadre calme et bucolique. Nous avons été accueillies par Daphné qui nous a fait faire le tour du logement avant de nous donner quelques adresses locales. Comme indiqué dans l’annonce : Muffins faits maison, yaourt et café nous attendaient pour le petit déjeuner. Nous avons apprécié les petites attentions de Daphné comme le petit sachet de lavande ou les caramels. Nous avons profité du balcon pour observer les étoiles … N’hésitez pas à y faire une halte, le coin est très joli et la chambre en elle même grande, propre et bien équipée (le lit est très confortable !). Maryline from France

Thanks for all, it was a perfect night at your Home 🙂

– Veronique & Bernard from Pelleautier, France

“Everything about Daphne’s space is GORGEOUS. The VIEW. The FURNISHINGS. Even the bathroom is spectacular! She was extremely hospitable, leaving muffins in the fridge and maps of things to do around town; she even made a point of coming by to introduce herself. A truly lovely woman. I wish we could have stayed longer!” – Sophia from Coventry, RI
