Property description

MONTEREY COUNTY HAS INFORMED ME I CANNOT RENT FOR LESS THAN 30 DAYS. IF YOUR PLANS CALL FOR A SHORTER VISIT, I'M HAPPY TO HELP YOU FIND SOMETHING..PLEASE GIVE ME A CALL.

Sobre Sur Grande lies on a flat parcel of land, 1200 ft above sea level with spectacular views of the Pacific as well as sunsets sunrises and in the fall, the moon setting over the sea. It is a luxury property in the wilderness yet only 25 minutes from Carmel or Big Sur State Park. The home is a sweet spot for families and groups to gather. A King Size Airloome organic cotton bed in the upstairs master suite, and a Stearns and Foster Cal King bed in the downstairs Master. Each suite is complimented with Yves de Lorme and Macy's Hotel Collection linens and other special touches. The third bedroom features a Simmons Black Queen bed, and all bedrooms have ocean views.

Located 1/2 way between Big Sur State Park and Carmel-by-the-Sea, La Casa Principal @ Sobre Sur Grande (above Big Sur) was lovingly restored from 2007 to 2010 initially by two yoga teachers, one of whom is a designer, the other an art collector. My goal was to create a unique combination of elegance, tranquility and simplicity in a most peaceful locale.

I wanted my home to be luxurious yet comfortable and in tune with the rugged privacy of Big Sur. La Casa Principal offers the Vermont Wood Castings stove complemented by on demand air conditioning/heating. There is top of the line LG washer/dryer, a compact yet complete chef's kitchen featuring All Clad cookware as well as everything you need for preparing a fine meal. A firm believer in indulgence and comfort, i've added Waterworks Satin Nickel bathroom fixtures and deep soaking tub, Yves deLorme and Bellora European linens and thick bath towels. The result is the best of both worlds, total comfort and rustic charm. La Casa Principal boasts a new dining room with an elegant Italian glass top table seating 10 or more. Downstairs, two bedrooms , one of which is a second two room master suite, provide for complete privacy even for a large group. Each bedroom features an incredibly comfortable bed: The upstairs master has an Airloome Eastern King, The downstairs master offers a Stearns and Foster Cal King, the third bedroom features a Simmons Black Queen. There are also two American Leather queen and a twin sleeper sofas.

La Casita's one bedroom is appointed with a Cal King Airloome organic cotton mattress, plus a twin American Leather sleeper sofa

In addition paintings from my collection (many of which are for sale) add a special touch.

Located on a promontory, 1200 feet above the Pacific, Sobre Sur Grande offers unobstructed views of the ocean, Rocky Creek Watershed and the Ventana Wilderness. Yet it is only 30 minutes from Carmel and a few more to the center of Big Sur, along one of most beautiful 'commutes' in the world. Choose to stay home watching the raptors glide on the thermals rising up from the canyon below, then call our private chef, yoga teachers and body workers to come to you. Plus you can walk out the door to wonderful hiking up to the ridge line or down to the ocean.. Or jump in your car for a lovely drive to Carmel for golf, wineries, shopping and an indulgent dinner.

Sobre Sur Grande is 2.5 miles up Palo Colorado Road, with it's majestic redwoods and year round creek, then an additional 3/10 miles up a private road. Mill Creek Redwood Preserve is close by and the Botcher's Gap access to Ventana Wilderness provides the most amazing hiking opportunities. Down at the coast, Rocky Creek Restaurant offers incredible ocean front views and a great place to walk (or drive) for breakfast. You're close to the best beach in Big Sur where Garrapata Creek empties into the Pacific. It's spectacular, yet completely accessible to families.

La Casa Principal is built into the hillside, so its two stories offer minimal environmental impact and maximum privacy.

Catering, Massage, and a variety of body work therapies can be arranged as can private yoga sessions. If I am in town, I offer my guests complimentary private yoga For a service charge plus food costs, we're happy to stock the refrigerator with adequate notice.

But if all these indulgences are too hard to choose between, select from these INDULGENCE PACKAGES, priced based upon number of guests:

Romance:

For the two of you, begin with a special dinner, Champagne and dessert, wake to breakfast prepared for you, then after a few hours a private yoga session for you whether you've never practiced or are very experienced. You'll end with a 3 hour pampering/massage treatment for each of you (male or female).


Guilt-Free Combo:

Includes 1/2 day hike with a knowledgeable Big Sur guide, two 60 minute massages from Christina, and dinner from a private chef.
Stay Home and Spa:

If leaving the house seems just too tough, you'll begin with a gentle private yoga session, then a 90 minute massage/pampering treatment, and a spa menu dinner:

Let Me Eat Cake.

Begins with a special sweet treat from Jamie on your arrival, a wonderful dinner, a special dessert, then pastries and treats for breakfast. There's definitely chocolate in here!

Most of all, I want you to come, relax and enjoy the special feelings that come from being Above Big Sur.

My motto is 'Start Slow....then Taper Off'

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1980

About: I built La Casa Principal originally with my son, trying to honor the spectacular location. I've enjoyed converting homes into vacation rental and try to give guests the feeling of coming home rather than to a rental. I hope you'll feel familiar and welcome as that is my goal. I teach yoga in the Bay Area, and spend time here in Big Sur writing when my homes aren't rented. I offer complimentary yoga to guests when i am here

Why Carmel By the Sea:
La Casa Principal was not created as a vacation rental, and La Casita remains my primary residence when i'm here. When i decided to turn the property into vacation rentals, it was important to make you feel at home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
While practicing yoga downstairs, a wide variety of local 'residents' visit: Rabbits, Quail, Deer make the front yard their playground. Hawks and other predator birds sail on the thermals right off the deck, and the sunsets and full moon sets are unforgettable. Two remarkable private chefs live close by, as well as a fabulous massage therapist. I offer private yoga lessons,and can arrange a private yoga retreat for couples that includes yoga in morning and evening, day hikes throughout the area, and wonderful meals
