Celebrating a big birthday and what to give someone that really wants nothing, but absolutely adores ocean views? A vacation at the Big Sur Stone House! What a WONDERFUL time we had. Ana met us at the house, provided us with a nice bottle of wine and gave us a thorough tour and told us to make sure we, "made ourselves at home". Mark's extensive album collection (that would be LP's to us old folks!) was absolutely amazing. That's what my partner keyed in on and for the next 3 days played so many albums and was just in 7th heaven!! Then there are the views!! Seating everywhere, ocean views from everywhere on the property and sitting in a chair with a fine glass of Cabernet, watching the sun set over the glistening waters of the Pacific Ocean, listing to vintage Beatles...well, there just isn't anything better!
I also arranged for massages to be given out on one of the landings on the property, and listening to the waves crash against the rocks, the birds tweeting about how much THEY loved the area and just relaxing, as the world passed us by! Ahhhhhh. And if that weren't enough, each morning and evening, we ran ourselves a steamy bath in the OUTDOOR soaking tub and sat there (again) watching the ocean and (in the evening only mind you), nursing that lovely glass of Cabernet as the sun set beneath the ridge line. Again, did I mention, ahhhhhhhh.
Thank you Ana and Mark for such a lovely time and money well spent at your home away from home.....the Big Sur Stone House. We will see you again!
