Welcome to "Garrapata Ridge Retreat"!
Just a 15-minute drive to Carmel and a 20-minute trip to the village of Big Sur, this newly renovated home has breathtaking coastline views from every window. You won't want to leave once you arrive, so stock up on groceries on your way out of town.
Cooking will be a joy in the newly remodeled chef's dream kitchen as you look through the passway window out to the Pacific Ocean. If you do feel like a drink or meal out, Rocky Point Restaurant, perched on a promontory over crashing waves, is only 2 miles away, and there are many 4-5 star restaurants in Big Sur or Carmel.
From your perch high on the hill in this 3-bedroom home, you will experience the peace and beauty of this majestic stretch of coastline where condors soar and the stars are so close you feel like you can pick them out of the sky.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a bottle of wine or sparkling cider (upon request), passes from the renowned Spa on the Plaza in Monterey, Scheid Wine tasting room passes and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, oversized towels and beach gear.
This unique home will give you a taste for what it is to live in Big Sur, a lifestyle that combines a spirit of adventure and individualism with a passion for the unparalleled natural beauty all around. When you enter the living room, with its dramatic cathedral window on one side and wall of glass on the other, you'll be swept away by a feeling of expansiveness as you drink in the sweeping view the ocean and the undulating Santa Lucia Mountains, with Highway 1 cutting a ribbon-like swath far below. Take it all in on a chaise lounge in the corner and have your favorite book in hand, a soft throw and you will be in heaven. A convertible sofa that is almost the size of a queen bed can sleep 2.
Prepare gourmet meals from the updated kitchen with its warm terra cotta tiles and jade-green granite counter tops. The chef and a helper can prep while sitting at bar stools at a pass-through window and imbibe the views along with the living room conversation. Everything you can think of for preparing and presenting fabulous meals is provided, from modern appliances to cookware and beautiful dishes. Meals will be unforgettable served at a wooden table that seats up to 8.
Enjoy a rousing game of ping-pong or play a show tune at the upright piano in a spacious game room that has a cast-iron fireplace, a large flat-screen TV and trundle daybeds that can sleep up to 4 in twins. A washer and dryer are concealed behind shuttered doors.
The master bedroom has windows that look out to forever with closets with mirrored doors that amplify the effect. Take a relaxing soak and meditate under the night sky in the hot tub just outside the window then tuck yourself in for a peaceful sleep in the king bed with luxury linens and sea-foam green coverlet. The master bath has jade-green tiled flooring and shower and a free-standing seashell-shaped marble sink.
The other 2 bedrooms also have dramatic ocean views. A second bedroom has a queen bed. A third smaller bedroom has a trundle day bed with luxury linens that can be a single, two singles or convert to a king with a Memory Foam topper. A second bath with a tub/shower has an organic spa feel, with Italian porcelain mosaic tiling in gray and taupe.
Take your cocktails out to a pair of redwood chairs at land's edge and watch the colors change as the sun dips below the horizon. Follow a short path to a deck facing the mountains where you can practice your golf swing while balls sail into the great beyond. Meditate in a round carpeted room that looks out to the canyon and slopes beyond.
Don't be surprised if the magic of this place and the Big Sur Coastline seeps into your being and you find
