Wave Street Studios

Monterey/Carmel Valley



Wave Street Studios is truly a special place. Sure, you know this the moment you lay your eyes on it in a picture, but you know it in a deeper way when you're here in person, feeling the energy, listening to the burbling of the fountain, sitting on our sustainably-designed, heated concrete bench, sipping a hot herbal infusion from our gourmet tea bar, watching a monarch revel in our succulent gardens and soaking in the calm as you imagine the hammer-cut brick and hand-forged, reclaimed copper artistry of the heated patio reverberating with the sounds of all your loved ones celebrating your happiness. Built lovingly by hand by owner Rhett Smith, the multi-level property was designed to be crowned by the historic Quock Mui House. This once-crumbling bungalow was restored to its full glory and given a beautiful modern interior w/ a full kitchen. Start your special day sipping champagne in this cozy home with your closest friends while your celebration takes shape in the beautiful studio, patio and additional rooms on the floor below.
