We are only 23 miles south of the Monterey Peninsula, located on a private, electronic gated road. Perched 950 feet above the Pacific Ocean on the west side of Highway One, The Teapot view is unsurpassed. My father often said, 'You can see all the way to Maui.' Directly above Pfeiffer Beach, it is possible to see migrating Grey whales, Humpbacks, porpoises, sea otters, condors, plus an occasional hang glider landing below.

I grew-up working the ranches of Big Sur. I had the privilege of working for Walter Trotter a mountain of a man and a legend in Big Sur. Over 40 years ago, my parents were brilliant to buy one of the best 20 acres on the whole coast. I've always enjoyed playing sports. Professionally I run a company called Leadership Resources, LLC we coach and consult helping businesses hire and work together more effectively. I'm a social psychologist by training and my wife is a clinical psychologist. Patricia has transitioned to become an incredible abstract expressionist painter with a beautiful studio in Carmel Valley Village. Our son Kodiak loves to play sports too. It has given me the opportunity to coach soccer, basketball, football and lacrosse. All of his activities keep us from spending too much time in Big Sur, so we decided to share our property with a lucky few.

Our family, led by my parents in 1972, have always loved and respected the incredible beauty and ruggedness of Big Sur. We sit on top of the ridge about 900 feet above Pfeiffer Beach. The road to our property is controlled by electronic gates. We have a gate by the entrance to Pheiffer Beach and a northern entrance just before The River Inn. Our view is one of the most magnificent views in the world. Our 20 acres includes a spectacular redwood grove and tunnels of wondrous oak trees. We are only about 50 minutes to Carmel and at the same time light years away from the hustle and bustle of normal life.
After many years of staying in different hotels in Big Sur, we wondered what it would be like to stay there like a local, and the Teapot made our wish come true. It is very isolated in a wonderful location; the quietest place I have ever stayed. It is immaculately maintained and the communication with the owners is outstanding. When we had a problem with the scheduling because of a work conflict, Doug went out do his way to accommodate us, and we loved the entire experience.
My husband and I spent several days at this house in January 2013. It was absolutely perfect. The views are unbelievable, the house is very comfortable and well-equipped. It is very private, up a winding road. The caretaker was extremely helpful. I only wish there was another bedroom so that we could return with some of our kids. One of the most beautiful places I have ever been to.
This is truly a great place to stay if you want the views from the top in Carmel. It is WEST of the highway and WAY up top. The view can only be described as magnificent. The home is very comfortable and has all you need. We spent the majority of our time on the deck reveling in the incredibly scenery. We hope to return...
The property description was accurate the location defies words. The photos are nice but again, the actual property is just incredible. Very clean and well maintained and the Owner was very helpful answering questions and providing information. Our experience there was awesome and inspiring - we're already talking about our next visit to the Teapot. Highly recommended !!
we loved it. well appointed place with a terrific view, as advertised.
The Teapot is an elegant but simple get away with great views of the Big Sur coast. It is perfect for a couple with everything you need provided. Access is quite easy is you are at all comfortable with dirt roads. There are spectacular views in many directions and the setting is very quiet. Many windows and sliding doors offer great natural views from almost every part of the house. Pfeiffer Beach located nearby is also very nice. Not too crowded and lots of interesting whitewater. There were large waves and a surfer one day we were there. The Teapot is an easy drive to most of the northern Big Sur attractions and even the Hearst Castle is an easy day trip.
