Ocean lovers dream

  • 5 of 5

This home was spectacular to stay in. The views of the ocean are breathtaking and the home is so comfortable and includes everything you need! We loved the outdoor decks, fire pit, soaking tubs and the smell of the ocean mist and trees! Perfect for families or groups to entertain at. We had more room for two of us than we needed! The owner was so very helpful and accommodating to every request! Can't wait to visit again!

Amazing venue for wedding or weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We could not be more grateful to have had the opportunity to have our wedding at the Wind & Sea. It is, by far, the most beautiful property we have stayed at. The photos really can't capture how incredible the 6 acre grounds are--in addition to being positioned perfectly over the ocean, the landscaping is well-thought out and gorgeous. Our guests staying in the home spent mornings and nights bathing in the copper tubs (which really do heat up right away) and eating breakfast on the patio with breathtaking views. The property manager, Jade, was incredible to work with--keeping in touch before the event to make sure everything was ready to go and stopping by over the weekend as needed. We didn't have any issues with the property (sound system worked great, kitchen lights turned on easily, and gate operated without issue). We really couldn't recommend the Wind & Sea highly enough and hope to be back in the years to come. Truly a magical experience and perfect venue for a small wedding.

It pains me to have to write this review, after all, Wind & Sea is a magical place. It's absolutely beautiful.. But I spent a lot of money on this place and I don't think it's too much to ask for the basics.. I rented W & S to enjoy a relaxing weekend and a quiet birthday celebration with a few girlfriends. We arrived to an open gate. Turns out the gate was broken. After unloading our belongings in the cold & rain, ( no rugs were provided to wipe your feet) we spent over 3 hours trying to figure out how to get the heat to work. I was surprised that there was no guide book of directions to the house. We never did figure out the heat. The house has an outdated tech system that apparently only partially worked. We also spent hours trying to figure out how to get the overhead lights in the kitchen to work.. We ended up navigating the kitchen in the dark. We requested a handyman who did come out the next day. One of the girls forfeited her massage at Esalen to stay and meet with the repair man and learn how to work the details of the house. Turns out, the overhead kitchen lights weren't working at all, and didn't for our entire stay. We had to cook dinner practically in the dark the entire time we stayed there... Top that off with ants that covered any counter surface we rested our food supply on. It had to go in the refrigerator or it was ruined. There was a big storm during our stay, no flashlights, only a few pieces of extra wood in the house for the fireplace, no newspaper was provided to start a fire so all of us girls were digging scrap receipts out of our purses to start a fire with... most of the east facing windows leaked so we were using our bath towels to clean up the puddles and keep the wood floors from being ruined.. the jets in the downstairs tub would just automatically come on at all hours of the day and night, even with no one in the bathroom... Since there was no guidebook or directions anywhere we never did figure out how to work the sauna.. trust me, we tried.. The sound system didn't work either so there was no music. When you spend that much money on a place, having the basics like Q tips or kleenex in the bathroom I thought would be a given.. The couches were stained and could have used a good cleaning.. We would have been much better off staying at Ventana or Post Ranch.. After all of our troubles, I had to ask for a discount. It's disheartening that after all of this inconvenience, they basically just offered a 10% discount..

Most beautiful setting for an intimate wedding

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I held our wedding here in September 2016 and stayed for 3 nights with my family in the home. The pictures do not do this place justice. The grounds are absolutely stunning and despite being directly on the coast we barely saw any fog our entire stay here. It is definitely a rental and needs some work to warrant the cost (e.g. two of floorboards in the kitchen were being held down with tape, some of the kitchen lights didn't work/were burnt out, no hot water in the studio, a too small amount of cutlery/glassware/dinnerware, etc.). Nevertheless our experience was amazing and perfect for our intimate 45 guest wedding. To any bride (+ groom) who wants an intimate wedding and are debating this place, just do it. You won't regret it.

Stunning property, very comfortable house and beautiful landscaping.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property and view. Spacious rooms and very comfortable, modern and current interior. Solid walls so everybody has their own privacy. The Sonos system worked great. Everything worked. The kitchen was fully stocked with good quality dishes. We loved cooking in that kitchen. The landscaping is even better than shown in the photos. It is green and lush, lot more mature. The property is so big that 8 people can get easily lost and not know of each other. The path to the beach is in great condition and the beach is wild and breathtaking. We are a pair of photographers and every corner was a 10-star backdrop. The only drawback is that the night lighting of the exterior is very minimal and unless you have full moon conditions, you can't see where you are stepping. I wish the daily rate was a bit lower as we all really wanted to stay a few nights longer.

Why Wind & Sea Estate chose Big Sur

Big Sur is a one of a kind destination. Just a drive down the highway feels like magic. A few nights at Wind and Sea will feel out of this world. With endless ocean views, one cannot help but unplug and tune with the beauty of the nature that surrounds you on the coast. Many guests say the sounds of the ocean help them with deep restoring sleep they can't get in the city. Plus some time in the sauna and outdoor tubs, folks leave feeling completely renewed. Come share and soak in nature.
