Property description

This spectacularly designed and furnished home has great European furnishings, contemporary state-of-the-art lighting, gourmet kitchen with concrete countertops, designer bedding, numerous tasteful art pieces, cozy library, & DSL wireless. There is a secret loft area in the main house for children to enjoy. Sleeps 2-6 guests.

Large 6 person hot tub, back deck with outdoor gas firepit, an upper stone patio for maximum sunshine and views, and a seasonal creek, all tucked away in the Monterey Sunbelt area. This coastal, 2-story contemporary canyon home sits on an acre of gated and landscaped grounds, located at the end of a private lane. Completely fenced and gated with graceful oak trees everywhere.

Exquisite furnishings (B&B Italia, Ligne Roset, Cappellini), amazing lighting, wonderful artwork (Larry McLaughlin, Maria Campoy), & designer bedding provide every guest a remarkable stay. Enjoy inside casual elegance combined with outside sunshine and activities for way more than just an ordinary vacation getaway.

The property backs Toro Regional Park with over 5,000 acres of protected hills and trails to explore. There is wonderful hiking and miles of mountain biking trails for a casual biker or the most avid mountain biking enthusiasts. Spectacular bay views can be found from several vantage points when there is no coastal fog (bring your own bikes). The lupine covered hillsides in springtime are an amazing natural wonder. Watching the sun rise or set over the hills is a fabulous experience.

Just imagine magical sunsets, quail, hawks, deer, wild turkeys, an occasional skunk or fox, and the sound of silence. It's all here, in abundance!

Fine linens, down comforters, thick spa towels. Comfortable seating areas in park-like gardens with numerous tables, adirondack rockers, umbrellas. Many patios and decks all over the property. Enjoy the firepit on the back deck. Sit on the upper stone patio in the late afternoon sun with views of the valley below. Enjoy the garden table in the front courtyard. Take a hike up the hill to the waiting bench for spectacular views.

A short drive puts you at any of several beaches, wine tasting rooms, the Aquarium, Point Lobos, Big Sur, Carmel, Steinbeck House, Cannery Row, agricultural fields and vineyards, old California missions, the Laguna Seca Raceway, a plethora of restaurants, and numerous other activities. Return to the house for dining on the deck, getting into the spa, and enjoying the sunset. A truly unique house in a very unique setting.

You can opt to rent the guest cottage as well (see VRBO #432531) if your group is larger than 6 guests or you would just like more privacy & space. The guest cottage sleeps 2-5 guests & is just across the front courtyard. Completely private from the main house, there are 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a fully equipped exercise room, a hot tub for 2 overlooking the hills, a firepit on the back deck, and a kitchen (no oven or cooktop).

Please review our many guest comments posted on VRBO #105482 (our listing for both the main house and guest house combined).

We're proud of the appreciation our guests show for the care we take in making your stay comfortable & enjoyable.

2015 Major Events:
Sea Otter Classic, Big Sur Marathon, Monterey Jazz Festival, AT&T ProAm Golf, Concours d'Elegance, Food & Wine Festival, Carmel Sand-Building Contest, and many more.
