Home, 5 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath, Indoor-Outdoor Feel. 25 Wine Tasting Rooms Nearby!

Hawk's Nest Nirvana Villa recently featured on TV is our beautiful home set amongst redwood and oak trees in Carmel's mid valley. Easy to excite and quick to invite for all types of gatherings, our floor to ceiling windows and breathtaking views are superlative for special occasions! This expansive home was inspired by Big Sur's Post Ranch and our travels through Brazil and Thailand. An open floor plan with high ceilings, French doors, skylights, 5 bedrooms and rap around deck, the home is ideal for most anything your imagination desires. Ask about adding additional bedrooms to your five bedroom booking if needed.

We are a stones throw from 25 wine tasting rooms, restaurants, shopping and a plythora of healthy festivities! Guests often attend weddings at Carmel Valley Ranch, Holly Farm, Folktale Winery, Bernardus Winery, Holman Ranch, Carmel Beach ect. We are centrally located less than 5 miles from Ocean Avenue, downtown Carmel and 5 minutes to Bernardus Winery and Holman Ranch, it's the ideal location.

The main house dining table seats 10-12 with additional seating at counter surrounding kitchen. There are seating options of both bench and fixed cushioned chairs. The stainless kitchen and custom built-ins are great for cooking parties. A KEURIG HOT and regular coffee maker enhance the kitchens necessities.

The fireplaces and color scheme add to the romantic ambiance and with 4500 square feet when you add the guest house, it can be the ideal 6 bedroom escape from cookie cutter norm.

Four bedrooms on main floor and a fifth bedroom downstairs that feels like a third master. With full bathroom, private deck and separate path to the hot tub, the fifth bedroom is ideal for privacy. The 5th bedroom has steep stairs and is not for children under 10 or elderly. Motion sensor lights are plentiful as are solar fairy lights in addition to 10 stocked flashlights at front door of main house for guests to utilize this property. Additional flashlights and batteries are stocked in kitchen center drawer. Lables are plentiful everywhere as you will discover.

Triangular two person jet bath in master bathroom and a six person spa outside with two outdoor showers add to the experience. You can see the hot tub from main deck and bbq to keep an eye on children.

We love our home with our wine and marguerita sunset views. We do require a low profile while on property and no loud music outside after 9pm. Not everyone can carry a tune like Rhianna or Luciano Pavarotti.

RECENT REVIEW

“Our extended family (four couples plus teens and grandparents) had a wonderful time at Hawk's Nest Nirvana. There's a terrific view of the nearby mountains and forest from the deck with woodpeckers and blue jays feeding at the bird feeder in the mornings and afternoons. The bedrooms are roomy, tastefully decorated, and comfortable. One family with two kids stayed in the Sweet Nirvana Guest House (below the main house), which they loved. The common area is quite nice as we could all eat and watch TV together at night. Weather-wise it was warmer than in Carmel, and at night the fire-pit on the deck kept it toasty. The large barbecue came in handy for quick meals. And Thyme was very responsive to all our queries via text or phone. We would definitely consider staying there again if we return next year.”

EXPANDING your group:

Should your group EXPAND, SWEET NIRVANA GUEST HOUSE can be added for a flat fee of $750. It is just below main house and only rented in addition to main house, so no outside rental conflicts. See labled photos.

Thyme Lewis and Lisa Sachs Lewis purchased this House in 2004

Why Thyme Lewis and Lisa Sachs Lewis chose Carmel-by-the-Sea

We are a stones throw from 25 wine tasting rooms, restaurants, shopping and a plythora of healthy festivities! Guests often attend weddings at Carmel Valley Ranch, Folktale Winery, Bernardus Winery, Holman Ranch, Carmel Beach ect. We are less than twelve minutes from all these venues and can hold dinner parties up to 20 people at this house. 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. AT&T Golf Championships, Concours de' Elegance Events, Laguna Seca, Pebble Beach Food & Wine, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Point Lobos, Rocky Point, Nepenthe, Cafe Rustica, sightseeing, hiking off 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 are all close by. We are set against The Preserve which offers unlimited vistas and adventures.

What makes this House unique

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 and Corkscrew in Carmel Village are outstanding for supper though seven miles further into Carmel Valley Village.

I was very pleased with the house and setting. No complaints. Plenty of room for all of us. The kids loved watching the big screen TV and cooking smores over the fire pit and just being together. A lot of thoughtful touches throughout the house like the row of little flashlights by the front door. Good info on the web site for things to do in the area. Everything was good and we enjoyed our stay there.

                                                                      Shea M.

                                                                      Thanks so much for sharing your time and being a very helpful and available landlord. Strongly recommend this house if staying in Carmel Valley. Thanks Thyme and Lisa!

                                                                      Amazing place to stay, and Thyme was an absolute pleasure to work with!

                                                                      Chad R.

                                                                      I am beyond satisfied with our experience. Thyme went the extra mile to make sure that we felt comfortable, and that our stay was outstanding.

                                                                      I booked this house for my wife's 40th birthday months in advance. In the days following up to the reservation date, we were evacuated from our home in Sonoma due to the fires (wife, 5 month old, 3 year old, and my dog). We escaped unharmed to San Francisco but could only find a hotel room in the city for 2 nights because everything was booked. I called Thyme and explained our situation and he generously invited us to come to the house 2 days earlier than scheduled. He welcomed us with open arms and was more than accommodating in making us feel at home while we were evacuated.

                                                                      The home itself is extremely well thought out and worked perfectly for my wife's bday. We had couples fly in from multiple different states and everyone was extremely pleased with the accommodations. There was plenty of room for all our guests and the extra amenities were appreciated.

                                                                      It is people like Thyme that reassure the soul that there is much good in this world, and I would highly recommend this place to anyone that is considering renting in the Carmel Valley area. The location is spectacular with a feeling of being away from it all, while access to recreation and stores is just a short drive away.

                                                                      We absolutely loved our stay, and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone considering renting Thyme's place. We will be back for sure!

                                                                      Great reunion trip!

                                                                      Frank H.

                                                                      Great reunion trip!

                                                                      Our group of 10 adults & 4 little ones (+1 in utero) stayed here for a reunion trip, and a great time was had by all! Thyme & Lisa were very gracious and accommodating hosts, and I can't recommend them enough - they happened to drop by to pick up some items while in the area, and they were great to chat with... =)

                                                                      First time finding the place was a little challenging, so follow the given directions (look for a steep descending side road on the right side, next to a bunch of address numbers!). The house itself is well secluded, with nothing but trees and wilderness viewable from the back deck, but is a close enough drive into town (few minutes away) to pick up supplies and groceries from the local supermarket (Safeway). Kitchen was fully stocked and all appliances worked - stove, dishwasher, and refrigerator were all heavily used during our stay there (beware the fridge's built-in icemaker - it's a bit aggressive when dispensing ice)! Heater worked well at nighttime, but air-conditioning was a bit lacking during the daytime (which encouraged us to get out and go do some activities!). Outdoor gas firepit on the back deck was a great place to hang out at night and make some smores, and the xmas "lights" on the close-by trees were a nice touch (haha!). We didn't get a chance to use the outdoor hot tub, but it's a short walk from the front door, across the driveway to the back of the house and up some stairs, so it's there if you need it. There's also a short hiking trail in back, that a few of us followed to seemingly nowhere, but it was a nice excursion nonetheless. There are many portable flashlights near the front door for your use - nice touch! Also worth mentioning is the wifi internet worked well the whole time, as cell service may not be great depending on your carrier (having had poor internet at other places, it's definitely appreciated when it does work smoothly!).

                                                                      Thank you for a rather memorable stay - overall highly recommended!!!

                                                                      Great place for a large family or friend gathering

                                                                      paige j.

                                                                      Well once you get past the crazy drive up the hill it is a wonderful place to stay. There was plenty of room to socialize inside and out. We only had one small issue with air mattress not being where it was stated in the instructions and found out the day after. Thyme was good about communicating. He also upgraded our stay which was awesome. The sweet Nirvana down below is a great add-on when renting the house. I would definitely stay here again with a large group.
