About the Property

Home, 5 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath, Extra Bedding/Indoor-Outdoor Feel. Guest house option

“This is a wonderful hidden away place. We had 15 people for my Dad's 60th bday and between the room below and the guest house above we had everyone in with no issues. Thyme was more than helpful and the house was more than anticipated. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. ”
Guest, September 2016

Hawk's Nest Nirvana, a beautiful home set amongst redwood and oak trees has just been renovated for the 2017 season!!! New carpet, fresh paint, a new outdoor patio set and much more make this a fresh, inviting place to rejoice. Easy to excite with floor to ceiling windows and breathtaking views, this expansive home is inspired by Big Sur's Post Ranch and travels through Brazil and Thailand. An open floor plan with high ceilings, French doors, skylights and rap around deck, the home is ideal for most anything your imagination desires. The fireplaces and color scheme add to the romantic ambiance and with 3500 square feet, it's the ideal five bedroom escape from cookie cutter norm. Included is a separated fifth bedroom that feels like a second master bedroom and very private. It has a bathroom, private deck and path to the hot tub.

A third master can be added for additional cost by adding the guest CHALET to your rental package. It is located 150' from main house. The CHALET is not rented to people outside your group, only to you if you need more space. Chalet includes a kitchen, bathroom, fireplace and wrap around deck. See pictures (23 & 24)

The main house dining table seats 10-12 with additional seating at counter surrounding kitchen. There are both options of bench seating or cushioned wooden folding chairs, both comfy. The stainless kitchen and custom built-ins are great for cooking parties. Additional six person hot tub with two outdoor showers add to the experience. Hiking Garland Park, Point Lobos, wine tasting, world class golf, cycling and Monterey Bay Aquarium are just a some of the amenities within a few miles of this home. Indulge, live, love, eat and exercise! www.Refuge.com nearby for the ultimate in co-ed spa relaxation and rejuvenation. Massages, bikram, hot and cold plunges, meditation, ect ect ect. Then there's alway an eco ocean sea otter and whale adventure on Cptn. Lauren Henry's custom boat. A personal favorite on sunny days with sandwiches and wine! http://www.fastraft.com/contact.html

Please note there is a full time tenant in the second guest house on this property. Because of the unique design, it is unlikely you'll ever meet nor cross paths with the tenant, however it is imperative the garage breezeway never be blocked. Eight parking spaces have been provided for your stay: three on the left at green markers and five parallel parking tandem along cement retaining wall to garage. An EV charger is located just inside garage on left wall for your EV use if needed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: This home sings and is a personal favorite for expansive views, atmosphere, dinner party ambiance, yoga retreats and creative writing...

Why the Owner Chose Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, USA:
This unique feeling of Big Sur without the long drive. This property is ideal for those who wish to feel away, yet be close to all the action Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula have to offer. ATT Golf Championships, Concours de' Elegance Events, Laguna Seca, Pebble Beach Food & Wine, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Point Lobos, Nepenthe, Cafe Rustica, sightseeing, hiking on the property. We are in a dynamic micro climate rich with wildlife and very colorful vegetation feeling like Big Sur and Africa on this property. We are set against The Preserve which offers unlimited vistas and adventures.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The setting, the ease of access to everything, the delicious dinner parties, the warm sun on the mountain when downtown Carmel is fogged in, the star gazing from the hot tub or big rap around deck and a renovated Safeway just a few minutes away make this a great place to stay. Located next to Safeway, Jeffrey's Cafe is a personal favorite and has an always fresh, healthy, delicious menu for breakfast and lunch should you like to zip down the hill. Also Cafe Rustica in Carmel Village is outstanding for supper though seven miles further into Carmel Valley Village.
