Spectacular House and View

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to celebrate a 60th birthday! Having traveled to the Carmel area numerous times and staying at a lot of different properties, this had to be (hands down) the best place we have ever stayed at! The house was immaculate when we arrived and the view of Monastery Beach and Carmel Beach in the distance was truly breathtaking! Driving up the road to the house, smelling the pine trees, puts you into relaxation mode right away. Then you get to the house and look out the back and you can't leave.....such a wonderful place to stay! Thank you Lou and Kristin for opening up your wonderful house for others to enjoy this truly magical area! Kathy & Bill (Peoria, AZ)

Perfect for our extended family of 12

  • 5 of 5

The rooms allowed for separation for sleeping and for kids on one floor and adults on another. The dining/kitchen area was large enough to have ya all together for meals. Kitchen was stocked well, great appliances. The front and back purdoor areas were amazing. Great place to stay.

Amazing home, beautiful view, fantastic hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Lou and his property manager Pamela made our stay fantastic, with hospitality above reproach. They were fantastic to interact with, super helpful and curteous. The home was immaculate and completely amazing. It was completely silent, every noise was totally isolated from any other room, a great thing when travelling with babies, kids, and grandparents. Everyone in my party agreed it was the nicest place we've ever stayed. The views are *incredible*, and the drive up the hill is quite an adventure. We were only there a few nights, but would love to come back for longer. Check-in and checkout couldn't have been easier, the kitchen was well stocked, the grounds were lovely, the radiant heat was toasty and the airflow was superb when you want some fresh air. The sound system was perfect too, what a great way to enjoy all of that beautiful space. Great stay all around.

Extraordinary house

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to create a special vacation experience over the course of a week in April for 6 adults and 4 small children ... (and 1 Rottweiler) - and chose this house. It was a very fortunate choice.

The design, layout and decor made this house very special. It was beautiful and comfortable, inside and out. There was no window, in a multitude of windows, that did not offer a lovely scene. Some views are expansive ocean views, some are intimate corners with potted plants and lush greenery, some views are of a charming patio with a waterfall and koi pond.

Each bedroom (and adjoining bathroom) acted as a private suite, with insulation from the noise in other areas of the house. Plus, there were multiple, large areas to comfortably gather as a group - both inside and outside the house.

It is important to know that the location feels remote. Past the first security gate, there was a single lane paved road that took us up a hill, through forest, for another 1.6 miles before reaching the house.

It was luxury, surrounded by forest, overlooking the expanse of coastline below. The view was endlessly fascinating, as the weather was ever changing.

Once we drove down again to Highway 1, we found ourselves across from Point Lobos State Park. It was an exquisite hike, (but no dogs allowed). Then, truly, a short drive to downtown Carmel by the Sea. Even closer was a wonderful outdoor shopping center that included a huge, upscale Safeway and some terrific restaurants.

We found the house well stocked with all the necessities, though the real reason to stay there had more to do with how very special it was ... it was like a world unto itself. We even were visited by (what we believe was) a bobcat. It peered in the downstairs window at us.

If you are looking to renew your creativity or recover from the exhaustion of modern life ... or if you want privacy, architectural and natural beauty .... or are looking for a memorable environment to celebrate a memorable occasion - then you can find no better choice than this special house.

We hope to return again, in future.

Great place for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent an extended weekend there with family/friends/kids celebrating my wife's 40th birthday, the place is on top of a hill 15 minutes away from Carmel/Monterrey, mainly due to a winding road leading up to it, views are fantastic as well as the forest, the house is well maintained. Pamela welcomed us as we arrived and explained everything, everyone had a great time and we'd love to come back again!
