You’ll be within minutes of all major peninsula destinations (2 miles to Fisherman’s Wharf, the beach, and Pebble Beach; 4 miles to Carmel-by-the-Sea, and Pacific Grove). Golf, beaches, wine tasting, whale watching, world class restaurants, boutique shopping, Laguna Seca raceway, and the spectacular 17-mile drive are at your door step. Enjoy forest views from most rooms and ocean views from the street.

Elegant, contemporary furnishings grace the home. Upon entering the living room, you will be drawn to the French doors that overlook the forested grounds and provide abundant natural light. There’s also a wood burning fireplace for your enjoyment.
