This beautiful retreat was perfect for our annual small family business getaway. Our group of 3 families with 9 adults, 2 children and a dog felt very comfortable with plenty of private space and well-designed common spaces. Only 1.5 hours from the South Bay, we had time to enjoy this incredible home with its stunning views and all the amenities in the area like Pt Lobos State Park and Carmel.
The home is on two levels with two suites on the lower level and two on the upper. The lower level has its own den with views and a comfy place for kids to hang out. The kitchen has a nice layout with luxury features like refrigerator drawers and an espresso machine. But the most impressive feature is the large patio outside the living-dining area with its expansive views of Carmel and the ocean. The view changes throughout the day - deep blue ocean surf and rocky coastline to billowy banks of fog rolling over Carmel to the lights of Carmel at night. Gorgeous. On the other side of the living-dining area is a large, serene patio with a koi pond. With a bbq grill, its perfect for dining al fresco. The home was designed with passive solar heating and warms up quickly during the day. But when the doors on both sides of the main living area are open, the fresh air breezes through keeping the temperature comfortable. When the outside temperatures are cooler, there's cozy radiant heating.
We have this property on our list and plan to bring out of town guests and family here in the future. Luis, the property manager, was very responsive and helpful as was Lou, the owner.
