Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Library, 3.5+ Baths (Sleeps 6)

Big Sur Stone House is a fully sustainable ocean view home in the center of a wide marine terrace with uninterrupted views of the Pacific coast to each far horizon.

One can hear the waves and watch the surf from seven rooms of the house.

The gardens and grounds of the forty acre property adjoining the protected lands of the Los Padres National Forest create a completely secure enclave above the Pacific Coast Highway. Guests at the house often say that this is the most beautiful spot they have ever found in round the world travels.

Sole access is by private gated road. The property has easy direct entry from Highway 1 by car, no need for a four wheel drive. You can bring your sports car or you can even arrive in a helicopter if you wish. We have a fine pad for that and one of our favorite guests arrives that way.

The off-grid, three-bedroom stone-built home was designed by an architect who specializes in sustainable architecture. The house is built in three closely connected but separate wings for the maximum amount of quiet and privacy, each with full direct views of the ocean. The Cottage Wing includes the kitchen, dining area, laundry, bedroom and full bath. The Studio Wing includes a large library and media room with a half bath; the adjacent Main Bedroom and full bath has single spa tub. A few feet away wholly separate stone walled Sunset Room has a magnificent view of the ocean waves and the moon and stars at night from the queen bed.

There are also ocean views from the Sunset room bath and shower.

The house complex has a fully stocked library, including a complete collection of music CDs, an extensive DVD film collection. The house has wireless WIFI and HDTV with full DirecTV premium satellite service.

The house has radiant floor heating throughout with tile and maple floors. The bathrooms and kitchen are served by both conventional and reverse osmosis water systems and have granite and onyx counter-tops.

Hiking trails for the Los Padres National Forest begin at the entrance to the private driveway.

The undeveloped beaches and coastal meadow of Pacific Valley below the house is an easy walk to the beach with a picnic lunch and a fine bottle of Pinot Noir. A popular public surfing beach, San Dollar State Beach, is 1.3 miles south of Big Sur Stone House and can be reached by biking or by car. Para-gliding the ocean thermals above the property is also a popular local sport.

Big Sur Stone House is 31 miles from the small shops and stores of Big Sur, the Post Ranch Inn, the Ventana Inn and Spa, and Nepenthe Restaurant. The house is 40 miles north from Cambria, California. It is approximately one and one half hours from Paso Robles Wine country (29.6 miles); three and half hours north of Santa Barbara (179 miles), and approximately four and a half hours north of Los Angeles (273 miles).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been visiting Big Sur for 6 years, 3 years at the Stone House. This is by far-THE BEST place-home-location around.

Thank you to our host for making it possible for us to come for inspiration and relation and fun! There is no other place like it. Can’t really say enough about it. It’s heavenly!

We will return next year! The weather was PERFECT and all accommodations were excellent!

Magical spot!

  • 5 of 5

I could have stayed here forever! The view from this magical spot is even better than the pictures suggest. With an unobstructed view of the Pacific, one can sit on the patio forever. The house is extremely comfortable -- off the grid but entirely self sufficient -- with very comfortable beds, nice kitchen, well furnished, etc. The grounds are well tended, with lemon trees and even a fig tree. I would come back in a second!

Peaceful Ocean View Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in this beautiful home. We were there with our adult children and their significant others and it is perfect for 3 couples, yet we each had our own space. We were able to hike and go to the shore, and spent time at the property enjoying the outdoor features. We all like to cook and brought food to predominantly eat and cook at the home and enjoyed eating while overlooking the Pacific.

If you need to relax, and get away from it all, go to this home. Ana, our host is very welcoming and helpful.

Magical wedding in the best setting ever!

  • 5 of 5

The only word to describe our experience with this property is breathtaking. We held an intimate wedding on the property in early May 2018. Ana is one of the most responsive people we have ever interacted with. We required a lot of assistance with finding vendors, getting equipment shipped to the house for our destination wedding, and much more. Ana was always extremely accomodating and was just as excited for our wedding as we were. We will be returning from Virginia to celebrate anniversaries here in the future!
