Big Sur house description

Welcome to “Garrapata Ridge Retreat”!
**For more details about specials for this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.

Just a 15-minute drive to Carmel and a 20-minute trip to the village of Big Sur, this newly renovated home has breathtaking coastline views from every window. You won't want to leave once you arrive, so stock up on groceries on your way out of town.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the renown Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, slippers, oversized towels and beach gear.

This unique home will give you a taste for what it is to live in Big Sur, a lifestyle that combines a spirit of adventure and individualism with a passion for the unparalleled natural beauty all around. When you enter the living room, with its dramatic cathedral window on one side and wall of glass on the other, drink in the sweeping view of the ocean and the Santa Lucia Mountains, with Highway 1 cutting a ribbon-like swath far below. Take it all in on a chaise lounge in the corner and have your favorite book in hand, a soft throw and you will be in heaven. A convertible sofa offers a sleeping option.

Cooking will be a joy in the newly remodeled chef's dream kitchen as you look through the passway window out to the Pacific Ocean. If you do feel like a drink or meal out, Rocky Point Restaurant, perched on a promontory over crashing waves, is only 2 miles away, and there are many 4-5 star restaurants in Big Sur or Carmel.

The chef and a helper can prep while sitting at bar stools at a pass-through window and enjoy the views along with the living room conversation. Everything you can think of for preparing and presenting fabulous meals is provided, from modern appliances to cookware and beautiful dishes. Meals will be unforgettable served at a wooden table that seats up to 8.

Enjoy a rousing game of ping-pong or play a show tune at the upright piano in a spacious game room that has a cast-iron fireplace, a large flat-screen TV and day bed couches. A washer and dryer are concealed behind shuttered doors.

The master bedroom has windows with forever views with closets with mirrored doors that amplify the effect. Take a relaxing soak and meditate under the night sky in the hot tub just outside the window then tuck yourself in for a peaceful sleep in the king bed with luxury linens. The master bath has jade-green tiled flooring and shower and a free-standing seashell-shaped marble sink.

All 3 bedrooms have dramatic ocean views. A second bedroom has a queen bed. A third smaller bedroom has a trundle day bed with luxury linens that can be a single, two singles or convert to a king with a Memory Foam topper. A second bath with a tub/shower has an organic spa feel, with Italian porcelain mosaic tiling in gray and taupe.

Take your cocktails out to a pair of redwood chairs at land's edge and watch the colors change as the sun dips below the horizon. Follow a short path to a deck facing the mountains where you can practice your golf swing while balls sail into the great beyond. Meditate in a round carpeted room that looks out to the canyon and slopes beyond.

Don't be surprised if the magic of this place and the Big Sur Coastline seeps into your being and you find yourself wanting to return again and again.

              The Monterey Peninsula is unique in its combination of breathtaking natural resources and a multiplicity of cultural and entertainment possibilities. You can find something for every possible taste. For nature lovers, there is the diversity of mountain and sea, for picnicking, surfing, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tidepooling, biking and more. If you want a man-made excitement, we have art galleries galore, excellent fine-art museums, local theater, outstanding restaurants, boutiques, a natural history and a children's museum, a world-class aquarium, and that's just for starters. History buffs will have a field day exploring the adobes of Monterey. There's so much to do that you cannot possibly do it all in one visit, which means you will have to come back!
