SPECTACULAR OCEANVIEW BETWEEN CARMEL/BIG SUR-COUPLE'S DISCOUNT

Big Sur House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

MONTEREY COUNTY HAS INFORMED ME I CANNOT RENT FOR LESS THAN 30 DAYS. I'F YOUR PLANS CALL FOR A SHORTER VISIT, I'M HAPPY TO HELP YOU FIND SOMETHING..PLEASE GIVE ME A CALL.

ocated 1/2 way between Big Sur State Park and Carmel-by-the-Sea, La Casa Principal at Sobre Sur Grande (above Big Sur) offers luxury in a retreat setting. The owner is a yoga teacher, who still manages to enjoy the pleasures of good food, wine and company. Thus the home blends the tranquility of a retreat with the kitchen, dining and living rooms designed with an entertainer's eye.

While peace and tranquility are my main goals, a bit of indulgence is also in the cards..So whether it's the hot tub under the stars, the 60' flat screen tv, or simply lounging around in the SobreSurGrande terry cloth robes, i've tried to anticipate your needs...If anything is missing, let me know....I get to exercise my inner travel agent!!!

PRICING DEPENDENT UPON NUMBER OF GUESTS, TIME OF YEAR, AND WHICH HOME. CONTACT OWNER

La Casa Principal @ Sobre Sur Grande was lovingly restored from 2007 to 2010 initially by two yoga teachers, one of whom is a designer, the other an art collector. My goal was to create a unique combination of elegance, tranquility and simplicity in a most peaceful locale.

I wanted my home to be luxurious yet comfortable and in tune with the rugged privacy of Big Sur. La Casa Principal offers a Vermont Wood Castings stove complemented by on demand air conditioning/heating. There is top of the line LG washer/dryer, a compact yet complete chef's kitchen featuring All Clad cookware as well as everything you need for preparing a fine meal. A firm believer in indulgence and comfort, i've added Waterworks Satin Nickel bathroom fixtures and deep soaking tub, Yves deLorme and Bellora European linens and thick bath towels. You can choose to hang out in the hot tub, or just lounge on the deck in the plush terrycloth bathrobes that are provided for your visit.

Quite simply, I've tried to create the best of several worlds; luxury, total comfort and rustic charm.

La Casa Principal boasts a new dining room with an elegant Italian glass top table seating 10 or more. Downstairs, two bedrooms , one of which is a second two room master suite, provide for complete privacy even for a large group. Each bedroom features an incredibly comfortable bed: The upstairs master has an Airloome Eastern King, The downstairs master offers a Stearns and Foster Cal King, the third bedroom features a Simmons Black Queen. There are also two American Leather queen and a twin sleeper sofas.

In addition paintings from my collection (many of which are for sale) add a special touch.

Located on a promontory, 1200 feet above the Pacific, Sobre Sur Grande offers unobstructed views of the ocean, Rocky Creek Watershed and the Ventana Wilderness. Yet it is only 30 minutes from Carmel and a few more to the center of Big Sur, along one of most beautiful 'commutes' in the world. Choose to stay home watching the raptors glide on the thermals rising up from the canyon below, then call our private chef, yoga teachers and body workers to come to you. Plus you can walk out the door to wonderful hiking up to the ridge line or down to the ocean.. Or jump in your car for a lovely drive to Carmel for golf, wineries, shopping and an indulgent dinner.

Sobre Sur Grande is 2.5 miles up Palo Colorado Road, with it's majestic redwoods and year round creek, then an additional 3/10 miles up a private road. Mill Creek Redwood Preserve is close by and the Botcher's Gap access to Ventana Wilderness provides the most amazing hiking opportunities. Down at the coast, Rocky Creek Restaurant offers incredible ocean front views and a great place to walk (or drive) for breakfast. You're close to the best beach in Big Sur where Garrapata Creek empties into the Pacific. It's spectacular, yet completely accessible to families.

La Casa Principal is built into the hillside, so its two stories offer minimal environmental impact and maximum privacy.

Catering, Massage, and a variety of body work therapies can be arranged as can private yoga sessions. If I am in town, I offer my guests complimentary private yoga For a service charge plus food costs, we're happy to stock the refrigerator with adequate notice.

But if all these indulgences are too hard to choose between, select from these INDULGENCE PACKAGES, priced based upon number of guests:

Romance:

For the two of you, begin with a special dinner, Champagne and dessert, wake to breakfast prepared for you, then after a few hours a private yoga session for you whether you've never practiced or are very experienced. You'll end with a 3 hour pampering/massage treatment for each of you (male or female).

Guilt-Free Combo:

Includes 1/2 day hike with a knowledgable Big Sur guide, two 60 minute massages from Christina, and dinner from a private chef.

Stay Home and Spa:

If leaving the house seems just too tough, you'll begin with a gentle private yoga session, then a 90 minute massage/pampering treatment, and a spa menu dinner:

Let Me Eat Cake.

Begins with a special sweet treat from Jamie on your arrival, a wonderful dinner, a special dessert, then pastries and treats for breakfast. There's definitely chocolate in here!

Most of all, I want you to come, relax and enjoy the special feelings that come from being Above Big Sur.

My motto is 'Start Slow....then Taper Off'

I built the home originally with my son, trying to honor the spectacular location. I've enjoyed converting homes into vacation rental and try to give our guests the feeling of coming home rather than to a rental. I hope you'll feel familiar and welcome as that is my goal. I teach yoga, and spend time here in Big Sur writing when the home isn't rented.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 1980

La Casa Principal was not created as a vacation rental, and La Casita remains my primary residence when i'm here. When i decided to turn the property into vacation rentals, it was important to make you feel at home.

While practicing yoga downstairs, a wide variety of local 'residents' visit: Rabbits, Quail, Deer make the front yard their playground. Hawks and other predator birds sail on the thermals right off the deck, and the sunsets and full moon sets are unforgettable. Two remarkable private chefs live close by, as well as a fabulous massage therapist. I offer private yoga lessons,and can arrange a private yoga retreat for couples that includes yoga in morning and evening, day hikes throughout the area, and wonderful meals

Thanks Tony!!

Such a wonderful home and location. We stayed on the smaller La Casita, which was perfect for a couples retreat. Additionally Tony was very kind and professional, he really helped us out in a pinch after we had some issues with our previous vacation plans. The property is even more beautiful than the photos are able to demonstrate, and has all the comforts of home. We particularly liked the soaking tub, and the well stocked and outfitted kitchen. Thanks again Tony, and will certainly plan to return!

Great house and location!

We had a last minute wedding come up in Big Sur and were immediately concerned about where to stay. Luckily after some searching we came across Tony's property. He could not have made the process any easier. The house is set in and amazing location on the hills overlooking the coast. Tony provided detail directions with turn by turn photos which made it incredibly easy to find (not one of the three couples had any trouble finding the house (even the late arrival). The house itself is very welcoming and comfortable. The bedrooms are outfitted with comfortable beds and ample space. Everything was impeccably clean and well maintained (and exactly as described in the listing). We enjoyed the deck and the hot tub, taking in amazing views and sunshine between wedding duties. With just a short drive down to the 1 we squeezed in a quick coastal run and visit to the beach. While we were not able to take advantage on this trip, I have in the past hiked many of the nearby trails which offer tones of access to the best that Big Sur has to offer. We certainly hope to stay again during our next visit.

Wonderful Home, Spectacular Location – The Perfect Holiday Home!

We have just returned to the UK after spending a wonderful vacation touring the beautiful Pacific Coast Highway and undoubtedly one of the highlights of our vacation was the time we spent at the fabulous La Casa Principal at Sobre Sur Grande.

The drive through the redwoods up to La Casa Principal is simply stunning. The house is located above the tree line at the top of a steep and narrow private lane and is well worth the drive as the views of the valley and the ocean are breath-taking and the photos do not do it justice.

Tony, the owner, is a pleasure to deal with and nothing seems too much trouble; from recommending restaurants in San Francisco, to offering advice on places to stay further along the PCH. Tony has thought of everything and has equipped the house to suit all needs, and the extra special welcome touches really do make you instantly feel at home.

The views are amazing, watching the sunrise from the master bedroom or the balcony and seeing the sunset over the valley from the hot tub are not to be missed.

The property was spotlessly clean and we would not hesitate in recommending the property to friends or family.

Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

GREAT GETAWAY!!! RELAXING AND REJUVENATING

What a great place...perfect for a girls trip/getaway...there were 6 of us!! Tony greeted us and then left us to it, but left very elaborate directions for everything...his house is very accommodating and has
everything you would need in the kitchen, bedrooms and bathroom!

Once you get up to the house...( it is a little bit of a trek) you don't want to leave! We had breakfast and cooked dinner every night and sat out on the patio enjoying the amazing view and the magical sky and air! Had one day in Carmel, one day in Big Sur and 1 day hiking, all beautiful! The last night we had a sky filled with more stars then any of us had ever seen! GORGEOUS. Would love to make it a yearly trip and would highly recommend this house to anyone!

Beautiful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 22, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We stayed at La Casita for an impromptu get away. The cabin is absolutely beautiful and the views are breathtaking. I'm so glad we chose this place isntead of staying at some of the hotels nearby. Waking up in the morning to a view of the green, redwood covered hills, covered in a sea of fog was one of the most memorable moments of our little get away.

This was a last minute get away and we hadn't done a lot of planning but Tony made it easy for us. From the minute that we contacted him he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He accomodated our very tight timeline and gave us super detailed instructions on how to get to the cabin.

I only wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended.

Notes:
I am happy to provide you with complimentary private yoga during the week. If I am not available or if you come on weekends, two wonderful teachers, Ana or Katie will come to you for a 90 minute session. $200 Christina, one of my neighbors is said by many to offer the best massage treatments in our area. 60-90 minute massages are $80-$125, and her special three hour dry body scrub, massage and facial is $250. Jamie Jarrard and Gail Goodenow are wonderful private chefs who live nearby. Let them plan a menu for a meal or indulge you throughout your stay. While the self guided hiking opportunities are endless, another neighbor, Avril, works with Big Sur Guides and offers private half day hikes. $75 per person
