I recently had my kitchen remodeled and was so pleased with the service I received while working with Megan at Carmel Stone. Her knowledge of their products, patience with my indecision, and willingness to take the time to educate me will definitely make me a repeat customer as well as enthusiastically referring new customers. ~ Connie Hays More...

My wife and I were greeted by Lauren Byrd's smiley face the minute we stepped into your facility. LUCKY FOR US...she is extremely knowledgeable, very eager to help, very enthusiastic and a very sweet young lady. She helped us during a number of visits ,to put our project together. We had been to a few other stone showrooms and were offered  little or no help and aimlessly wondered around.   We couldn't believe it when we encountered Lauren, she's a bright light at Carmel Stone Imports and to the company owner she's a keeper. Having been the owner of a wholesale business for over 40 years where I maintained a warehouse a showroom and employees, it's easy for me to spot a bright eyed winner like Lauren...An asset to any company...

I needed some quartz kitchen counters for an income property I was upgrading and Linda Monterrey at Carmel Stone in Palo Alto couldn't have been more helpful, patient and knowledgeable. She was also great about showing me  so many different options in my budget range. It was a real treat working with her and I will definitely go back to Carmel Stone. More...

We are at the tail end of a remodel involving kitchen, master bath, bedrooms, and flooring, so I am finally getting around to writing this overdue review for Carmel Stone.At the start of my remodel (9 months ago) a friend suggested I go to Carmel Sone.  I went repeatedly looking for quartzite slab for countertops and tile for backsplash, and tile ideas for bathroom.  Ultimately, I decided to buy marble tiles for kitchen backsplash at Carmel Stone because of all the places I have been to (and I went to  ALOT) their marble seemed the most pure.   I asked to meet with Lauren B., per a friend's recommendation, and I am so glad I did.  She greeted me warmly, knew exactly what I was looking for, showed me the boxes of tile I would be purchasing, pulled out a few tiles to confirm they met my expectations.  She also educated me on how many places claim to carry marble when they are not.  After purchase, she helped make sure I was not delayed in getting the marble into my car.  I was so happy and couldn't wait to see the tiles in my kitchen.A few months later, I was desperately in need of new tiles for my master bath shower.  The tiles we had purchased did not work (long story).  Based on my previous experience with Lauren, I immediately asked for her help.  She listened and easily recommended a tile that would work and my husband loved it.  We bought it on the spot, and love how it turned out in our master bath shower.Lauren provided outstanding customer service.  She is warm, down to earth, and very sweet AND she knows her stuff.  I did not feel embarrassed or pressured and valued her suggestions and expertise.  She is the reason I will always come to Carmel Stone for future stone/tile needs.

I showed up to Carmel Stone Imports with no appointment and was greeted by a lovely lady named Linda.  I needed a quick tile design for a bathroom and had a few ideas in mind.  Linda heard what I wanted and guided me to the perfect solution.  Linda has a great sense of design, I am so thrilled with what she suggested for me. I also really enjoyed working with her she is easy to communicate with and is very easy going.   I didn't end up buying the tile from Carmel Stone because of the lead time on the specific tile that I wanted but I would highly recommend this business and particularly Linda.

The search is over!  As a ceramics major, I was going to make, paint and fire my own tiles for my backsplash.  Well 22 years forward, it's still not done.  I had to give in that I would never get around to making them.  So my hunting began, store after store after store.I finally found a beautiful tile at another tile store that was being phased out and could not be ordered. I went to Carmel Stone and met Lauren Byrd.  I told her what I was looking for, she picked up the phone, did some actual talking to the vendor and performed a miracle, she was able to get my dream tile!  She gave me outstanding service even coming up with trim suggestions to compliment the tile.  She has a good eye and knows her trade.   She is as sweet as can be to boot.  Customer service is becoming a lost art but that is part of Lauren's DNA!

Carmel Stone is fantastic.  I was particularly impressed with the service we received from Lauren Byrd.  She was extremely informative and helpful in selecting the right stone for our project.  Lauren was extremely accommodating, sharing samples, vetting potential cutters, making design suggestions and most importantly, letting my wife and I take our time in making our selection - never pressuring us to make a decision or "dropping" us because of the time we took to decide.  Thanks again Lauren!

Carmel Stone has a wonderful selection in various price ranges  from which to chose, but it's their    5 star people, especially Megan that make is outstanding..  She is knowledgeable, thoughtful, helps  clients weigh options  & has the clients best interest at heart . The stone we selected remained in house until we were ready for it.  It was "visited" to select flooring, cabinet colors, etc.  Megan and the staff  (including the fork lift driver ) were incredibly kind, cooperative, & moved the slab    multiple times so visual access was available.  I found their "customer care" outstanding in every respect.  This is the 2nd time I've used them and would continue if there is another occasion.

Lauren B was incredibly helpful in our bathroom renovation -- from: selecting materials, to thinking through "simple shower tile, pattern floor" vs "simple floor, pattern shower tile", to giving feedback on whether the space would support a curbless/doorless shower without soaking the bathroom floor, all the way down to suggesting different grout color for the floor and shower to maximize the aesthetic -- she was always enthusiastic about offering her guidance in a collaborative and wonderfully non-salesy way.  We would enthusiastically recommend her capable hands for anyone considering a kitchen or bathroom renovation.

I'm very happy with the tile and countertop I purchased from Carmel Stone for my bathroom remodel. I was a bit overwhelmed other than some basic ideas, and in just a short time Lauren B. helped me choose a lovely pallet of four different tile types and a Caesarstone countertop. She worked with my designer on the quote and made sure I knew the status of the order until it all arrived. She made sure the Caesarstone slab got to the fabricator as well. Having been to other stone places that are too big and crowded to get any personal attention, I now realize how valuable that is! I highly recommend Carmel and Lauren. More...

I am so impressed by the service provided by Carmel Stone Imports!  We live in Novato and bought stone from Carmel Stone Imports for a limestone floor.  We had an issue with the job on a Thursday.  Darren of Carmel Stone drove to our job site on Friday (the very next day) and again the following Tuesday and got everything back on track.  This is above and beyond in my book.  I will gladly work with Carmel Stone Imports for all our needs going forward.

This is the best Stone shop in the bay Area. After driving to most stores from the North Bay to the South Bay through East and West, we found this treasure close to home. Kudos to Lauren B.!!! she help us select the right stone, sent us pictures for us to compare at home, and was Jolly and helpful during the several visits until we converged on our selection. Highly recommendable!!! More...

I came to Carmel Stone Imports naive to the renovation process.  Luckily, I found Lauren B. who helped me out and patiently explained the process.  She was warm, friendly, and I felt very comfortable working with her.  When I ran into an issue with the material after delivery, Lauren went above and beyond to ensure my satisfaction and work within my time constraints and work schedule.  She was communicative, reliable, and clearly devoted to excellent customer service.  And she did this despite my small, and likely relatively less significant, order.  Lauren is the reason I would come back here, or refer others, for any future tile/stone needs.  She made a daunting process much easier and I trusted her judgement and follow-through during the whole project.  I am grateful for her help!

I had a small order on short notice and Megan was very helpful to ensure they could take care of my request. I went to three other tile and marble stores prior to visiting Carmel Stone Imports and all were unable to help within my time frame. The customer service at Carmel Stone Imports was just amazing. I'm definitely coming back to this store for any future tile and marble needs. More...

This store has an amazing selection of slabs and tile that are phenomenal. Every staff member, from the receptionists to the warehouse gentlemen are very polite and efficient. And this time I met Robbie which made it extra special after seeing him on TV for so long. Yesenia is an excellent representative and extremely pleasant to work with. The stone slabs are like magic, and the people here are right there with them. After going to quite a few other stone outlets, this one was by far the most friendly, and family oriented. More...

Our designer recommended we visit Carmel Stone.  We were delighted with what we found.  The materials were exactly what we were looking for and the help we received made the process of picking out our tile a pleasure. Lauren, one of the designers on staff, quickly figured out our style wants and directed us to choices we felt fit our needs.  She definitely knows the product lines and was able to show us many different pieces that we wouldn't have found on our own.  She made it easy to make a final decision and purchase the tile necessary for our kitchen and bathroom remodels.  We were delighted with the entire experience at Carmel Stone.  Thanks again Lauren for all your help and thoughtful suggestions.

I am so pleased with the service at this store. Evan was so patient and helpful in helping me pick out the right countertop material. He spend probably a couple of hours total discussing pros and cons of the various materials and helping me pick out the perfect slab for me. He understood exactly what I was looking for. Thanks Evan!

We wanted a tabletop for a travertine cylinder pedestal. Going to Carmel Stone is like going into a museum.  Each slab is more beautiful than t he next. Chris was patient and enormously helpful with design options. We picked a granite that worked with the pedestal and some leather chairs. The price was very reasonable and we were given several names for the cutting and honing folks. The company we chose were marvelous also. We felt spoiled and empowered throughout the process and we have a gorgeous table. All in all it was a wonderful fun memorable experience More...

Today I had the pleasure of working with Lauren at Carmel Stone Imports.  She quickly understood the aesthetic of what I wanted in a tile and we were able to find a tile that matched my floor tile (which I found there as well) quickly and perfectly.  She was a whiz at estimating what I needed and starting the order process.  I highly recommend working with Lauren; Carmel Stone Imports is lucky to have her as an employee.

I have been shopping for tile all over the Bay Area and have been really impressed with Carmel Stone. Their selection is excellent and the service is top notch. I've been working with Lauren to design a very specific look and she's nailed it. She helped me pick a beautiful accent tile and came up with a stunning design and color combination. The order was easy and came in quickly. When my contractor made a mistake with the grout color, she was immediately on the phone helping to sort it out. I'm so grateful for her skill and professionalism. Thank you! More...

I am remodeling my kitchen and Jae, a sales associate at Carmel Stone and Tile is/was just amazing.  She was extremely professional and helped me with all of my decisions.  She is also extremely knowledgeable about all of their products.  I learned a lot about quartzite which is absolutely beautiful.  She always returned my phone calls and had everything ready for me when I arrived to pick out my slabs.  I would highly recommend Carmel Stone Imports.  Their selection of stone is excellent.  I cannot wait to finish my project.  She also recommend Bay Area Stone & Tile (Juan) to install and do the fabrication of my stone.  They were also amazing.  Thank you Carmel Stone and thank you Jae!  Great job.

Excellent service. Yesenia Torres was very helpful and patient with me, as I had no clue what I wanted when I first embarked on my bathroom remodel. She helped me chose the right marble for the floor and shower area, and we walked back and forth many times in their big warehouse till we found the right slab for the cabinet. I am very happy with the end result..thank you Yesenia ! I couldn't have done it on my own More...

We highly recommend working with Carmel stone Imports, in Carmel, especially because of the opportunity to work with Ron. The selection of tile and stone is amazing, and can be overwhelming. Ron made the process much less complicated, and actually fun. He has excellent design ideas, is very patient and organized, follows through, and goes above and beyond in providing excellent customer service. Our kitchen marble, the tile in the bathrooms, and fireplace look absolutely beautiful! More...

Ron Rowe was immediately communicative and expert in his knowledge of the different specialty tiles I was ordering. In addition, he articulated clearly between the manufacturer and myself. The delivery was timely and the order was complete. I never met Ron Rowe, which is unfortunate. We did business long distance through email and phone. I look forward to meeting Ron and thanking him in person for his excellent service and knowledge. More...

We've been working with Robbie and his team for several years now. As general contractors we really appreciate the ability to send clients to his showroom where they can select materials for floors, baths, kitchens, and exterior hardscape in one stop. Their system saves us a lot of time and makes us look good with our clients. In '14 we ordered a watercut floor package for a 10,000sf house that was on an 80' radius. Every row of tile needed a unique top and bottom radius and arc length. Happy to report that 68 unique tile IDs were delivered and installed without a hitch. Glad we get to work with these guys! Looking forward to more great projects. #grozaconstruction More...

Excellent service - no pressure on sales, very patient with all my questions (I have a lot) at every visit.  I've visited at least 5 times to make sure I can see full slabs of stones I'm considering and changed my mind  a few times.   Definitely a must-go before you make a decision as small samples can be deceiving on full patterns.  Their warehouse is huge with many selection - considering I've driven up and down to several places selling tiles/stones.  I think theirs might be the largest in the area.  Lighting is good too- that's important.

I'll change the rating to 4 starts since finally they helped us to find a countertop slab which we want and it did look good. Just hope miscommunication won't happen next time, otherwise it is a good place for modern slabs with quality.We have picked one of caesar stone which carmel stone carries, the seller told us the stone is not in stock but carried nearby, so the leading time is at most one week. The next day our contractor come to order it, surprisingly the seller said it was in stock and could be pick up next Monday. Now it's Monday, the seller said they don't carry it in any store, we could not buy it. I think they are not only wasting my time, but also cheating, it's very unprofessional. More...

I highly recommend Carmel Stone Imports to anyone looking for more "exotic" stones/slabs/tiles as well as average material like quartz.  They have a wide range of selections  which was really helpful for my project.  I recently finished a remodel under which I gutted the whole house, so as one can imagine, needed EVERYTHING.  I went into Carmel Stone by curiosity/chance, since I always see it when driving on 101.  I'm so happy I did, with the customer service I received and the great selections they have.  I worked with Lauren (who later left Carmel) and Jeff in a 3-4 month period.  Lauren had a keen design sense, and you can tell she was passionate at what she does and at helping her customers. I had a big kitchen, 2.5 baths, and a laundry room.  My style is modern/contemporary and favored neutral color palettes, Lauren helped me color/texture match materials based on my style, cabinet colors and floor, room by room.  What was hugely helpful was I had samples for almost all stones/tiles I was thinking about.After Lauren left, Jeff took over and worked with me on quoting and scheduling process.  He was always prompt and clear on his communications, i always knew when to expect stuff to come in.  There was only one exception with the Cambria countertop being delayed (from Cambria the manufacturer), but eventually it all worked out after Jeff diligently followed up to ensure timely delivery.Their warehouse/showroom is huge, with some really cool stones and tiles that you don't see at other places.  Of course they carry the other more traditional or readily available items too.  I'd definitely recommend checking this place out.Thank you Carmel Stone Imports!- Happy Customer More...

We recently remodeled our home and were set on having calacatta. We visited several stores in the area and found that Carmel Stone easily had the largest selection, best prices and most helpful staff. There was an enormous selection of calacatta and other stone slabs. Spencer and Yesenia were very friendly and helped bring our vision to life. Spencer in particular was outstanding and gave us the best prices. We now have calacatta throughout the kitchen and in most bathrooms. We also purchased travertine tiles for our front yard. Initially, we did not realize that the tiles we bought did not have traction. Luckily for us, Carmel Stone exchanged our tiles without a restocking fee. We have recommended Carmel Stone to our family and wholeheartedly encourage anyone who is looking for stone/tile/etc to visit this amazing business. More...

Ron at Carmel Stone is a Designer's dream come true!  We were able to see hundreds of stone & tile options at the Carmel showroom & take samples to the project site for overnight, enabling us to select what we needed.  Ron produced a very competitive quote immediately.   We ordered all the materials we needed for the project in advance & Ron arranged to store them in the Carmel Stone Imports warehouse until we needed them.   What a schedule & life saver to be able to pull materials as we needed them!!  Ron was always cooperative, creative & attentive - Highly recommend him & Carmel Stone Imports.

Carmel Stone has beautiful slabs and tiles at good prices.  Unlike other places, they were happy to hold our slabs without a charge until we were ready for installation.  When we ended up not needing an additional slab we had bought, we were able to return it and get a refund immediately.  They recommended Tony at A Touch of Stone to our contractors for fabrication and we were exceedingly pleased with them.  A few months into living in our new home, some mysterious but unsightly gouges appeared in the bathroom vanity. No one could figure out why the damage occurred.  A Touch of Stone tried a repair, but none of us were happy with the outcome.  Spencer from Carmel Stone and Tony came to our house to look at the damage and together decided to replace it.  Carmel Stone generously supplied a new slab and Tony installed it without charge.  We were very appreciative of their care and integrity and are happy to recommend Carmel Stone to others.

I am remodeling my kitchen and we ran out of tile for our backsplash. Unfortunately, I could not find another tile store who carried my tile.  The tile store where I purchased my floor tile, called Carmel Stone  in Palo Alto  and they said they had it in stock.  I drove the 64 miles to purchase the tile.  Alie (Alissandre), one of the designers at Carmel  Stone greeted me.  I explained my dilemma and Alie explained only the showroom is open on Saturdays and could not sell me the tile.  However, after explaining my situation,and that I needed the tile "yesterday" she decided to sell me the tile.  She went out of her way to look for the tile in the warehouse and gave me a better deal than the place I originally bought the tile.  I was so happy she went out of her way for me!  Alie was so nice and really cared about helping me.  I highly recommend Carmel Stone.  I give them 5 stars for their excellent customer service and going out of their way to make me a happy customer.  Alie even gave me a great deal on the tile!  It was totally worth driving the 64 miles to buy my tile.

My husband and I embarked on a remodel of our kitchen in January, 2015. We had a modest budget and we're determined to stick to it, even though we had both agreed that we wanted granite countertops and we KNEW they were not going to be cheap. After looking at prices of granite at two of the major home improvement stores, we were, quite frankly, stunned at the $65-$70 a square foot price. But then I urged my husband to let us check out Carmel Stone in Sand City, Ca., just 25 minutes from our home. I had to admit that the name itself was a bit intimidating since anything that bears the word "Carmel" usually comes with a hefty pricetag. Wow, was I wrong in this case! We found a gorgeous slab of black with bits of silvery sheen in it for $19/sq. ft.--a far cry from $65 that the other places wanted. We were politely approached by a Salesman by the name of Doan who patiently answered our questions and did all the necessary measurements and figuring for us. He was even able to refer us to 2 fabricators and another contractor who could seal the granite. We called a fabricator and he agreed to pick up the slab from CS and take it to his shop. He did a first-class fabrication job and the Sealer contractor was equally efficient and fair. All in all, the entire purchase experience was seamless and pleasant. I would highly recommend Carmel Stone to anyone looking for quality granite at an awesome price.and professional service! More...

Carmel Stone Imports is one of our 60 vendors for our retail showroom. We do extensive work with Carmel Stone, using them for many projects from lodges to high-end residential. Stone and Marble from Carmel is a high quality (1st quality) stone every time. They are prompt in responding to orders. Their samples ship quickly and detailed requests are honored. When the range of a stone is requested, they ship very thorough samples from different parts of that stone lot. We have never had stone or samples arrived damaged. And the lead time almost always is about a week. We love the quick turnaround and we enjoy working with our rep, A.J.! Our customers are always very pleased with Carmel's product after installation.

My wife and I are extremely satisfied with the ownership and management team at Carmel Stone Imports. Easy, fair and positive, can do attitudes for the showroom staff. Sometimes the warehouse folks needed a little extra prodding in the smaller tile section, but all in all a very positive experience with a very professional retailer and wholesaler. We plan to do more business with Carmel Stone Imports as we are adding another vacation home project to our list soon. More...

Carmel Stone provided an excellent selection of stone and tile options. They were very helpful in selecting tile that would be a good fit for our project and even created some tile designs for our shower walls at no additional charge.

Allie demonstrated stellar customer service and professionalism in our interactions regarding our kitchen remodel. She had outstanding advice and shared her experience and knowledge with us so we could choose the best possible elements (tile, backsplash, countertops) for our kitchen remodel.

I have never dealt with a stone company directly before, however, I don't think that I will do it any other way again. My contractor who was to install the limestone, sent me to pick out my stone and I was delighted with the choices and the personnel. Carmel Stone was a very professional firm to work with the staff was wonderful. We thought that we would only need one slab and many boxes of limestone but as it turned my contractor said that we would need another slab and Carmel Stone picked out one for me that blended with the one I had previously picked out. The limestone is beautiful and it has made my remodel perfect. I would recommend Carmel Stone to everyone. F. Buchholz More...

Each and every transaction was flawless. More...

While shopping for a client in the Monterey Penisula and came across Carmel Stone and found a wonderful selection of Calacatta slabs and tiles that were very rustic and went well with the organic remodel that my client was doing.  These guys delivered within 3 days and the service was suberb.  I highly recommend this company More...
