Property description

This is a true villa on a 1 acre estate between Hwy 1 and the ocean. Many wonderful ocean views from the front yard. Pt. Lobos State Reserve is very near for miles of hikes. The kids will explore forever.
The villa was built in 1953 and reconstructed in 2005. The reconstruction updated and remodeled the villa to bring back the feeling of old California such as the 200 year Mexican arches and the hand carved bedroom doors from the days of Junipero Serra. The villa is the beginning of Big Sur. Accross the street is a cabin that Bob Dylan and Joan Baez used to stay at in the 60's. Come experience the magic of Carmel Highlands.
Perfect for family reunions and birthdays with it's five bedrooms and 9 beds. There is a formal dining room for your family or an outside deck off the dining room with a custom table for 20. The hot tub is a Hot Spring, Cadillac of Spas with Moto Massage and twirling jets. Wander the grounds and gardens of the level one acre estate and play volleyball on the back lawn if you like. Photo opportunities abound under the stone arches or the deck with the ocean and rock caves in the background just a few hundred feet away, don't settle for a distant look at a patch of blue, at the Villa you look into the white water waves going in and out of the ocean caves at Bird Rock. Hear the sea lions bark, smell the ocean air, see the waves crash, wander the many gardens with the Pacific in your backyard.The weather by the sea can best be described as two seasons of Spring and two seasons of Fall.
The Villa has wireless internet service--via satellite.
Five bedrooms,four full baths, accommodates up to 14.
Lots of parking for all your vehicles within the large iron gates.
Three kings-one queen -two singles-two sofa beds.

Small intimate weddings, up to 20 with 4-7 night stay.

Stays include (4) passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium that may be used by two guests per day. Passes must be returned to the house.
Two minutes to the Hyatt and the 5 star Pacific Edge Restaurant. Clint's place is just around the corner (you can see him there, if your timing is right). For convenience there is the Carmel Highlands General Store within walking distance. Enjoy the wood burning fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom. Unlike any vacation you will have ever taken. You will not want to leave. Pictures do not do the Villa justice.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Real Estate Developer and a native of Northern California. Nina is a native of Thailand and a Dr. Professor. We have homes in Carmel, Pebble Beach and Bangkok. We enjoy traveling often and love to share our home here in the Carmel Highlands with guests from all over the world.

Why the Owner Chose Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, USA:
Love at first sight. Being near the ocean is something I've treasured since my college days in Santa Barbara. The property has a charm and magic seldom experienced on the Central California coast. The villa is the beginning of Big Sur. You can take a short 30 excursion on Hwy1 or a day trip down to Hearst Castle stopping to see the Sea Elephants along the way.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Breathe the ocean air ! See the sights, take a walk by the beach. Play golf at one of a dozen golf courses on the Peninsula. The restaurants are fabulous! The Aquarium should not be missed. There are two passes good for two people each day. The Aquarium is on Cannery Row and is pretty much the way John Stienbeck described. See Big Sur and the 17 Mile Drive. Stop for lunch in Spanish Bay or the Lodge in Pebble Beach. The Wharf offers whale watching and kayak excursions and some of the best sea food in California. We are always happy to give restaurant recommendations or tell you about an off-the-beaten-path walk along the coast.
