This is one of those rare finds. An incredibly peaceful place in the hills of Big Sur. Close and yet far away. The title says it all... Dramatic Ocean View. Lovely home. Can't wait to go again next year:)
This house worked out great for our family gathering of 8 adults in town for a wedding in Big Sur. Wonderful house with great views. Great kitchen and dining area was perfect for family dinners. The last half mile drive to the house, which is a single lane uphill gravel road, was a bit concerning initially, but was not an issue for us. Television reception would have been a welcome improvement, but there was a DVD player. Everyone in our group was very pleased with the house, and we would stay here again.
Lovely home, very clean, spacious master suite, tastefully decorated with spectacular views of sky, sea, & land. A bit difficult to traverse last mile to location but well worth it. Only negative; no television for viewing of a couple of desired sporting events.
We had a wonderful time at this home in Big Sur! The home was gorgeous with an incredible view. Six adults were very comfortable here. The pantry was well stocked, which was a nice treat! The owners were very pleasant as well. We would certainly stay here again!
Our group had a fantastic time! The house is very well kept and had everything we needed (soaps, towels, cooking supplies & dishes, etc.). The homeowners have nicely labeled things around the house to help with navigating your way around and had welcoming music playing when we walked in. There are beautiful, huge, open windows facing the outdoors with a distant ocean view and perfect breeze coming through.
The drive up the dirt road was a bit scary for us-we had a 4 cylinder hatchback and the road has many potholes and it's only meant for 1 car but there isn't any way to know if a car is coming down. We still had an enjoyable time cooking, resting in hammocks and listening to the sounds of nature all around but did cancel plans to go into Carmel and had friends who planned to arrive later in the night switch to driving in the morning for safety.
Overall, we enjoyed the home and the scenery and would recommend this rental to others who may be seeking a secluded getaway! There is a Safeway/shopping center about 13 miles away and Carmel by the Sea (shopping, restaurants) is another few miles.
Stayed here on my family's annual vacation, and everything was perfect. The location makes you feel like you are entirely removed from civilization, yet a trip into Carmel takes less than 30 minutes. Being above the fog is a completely unique experience, making for incredible sunsets. We all wanted to stay longer.
