About Tracy Jenkins

We are the trustees for the original owners of this home. The home was built in 1972. It is now in a trust and as part of the trust the owners requested that those who stay here use the home as a place to explore the incredible Peninsula.

The Original owners hired a contemporary architect to build a structure that would melt into the surrounding Del Monte Forest, while taking advantage of the slope, the view and the natural beauty of the area.

Tracy Jenkins purchased this house in 1972

Why Tracy Jenkins chose Pebble Beach

Although many people have wanted to purchase the property for the land to build a much grander home, the trustees want to continue to share the home which was how the original owners envisioned its use. For over 40 years countless friends, family and vacationers have enjoyed the peace, tranquility, location and unique beauty of this one-of-a-kind 17 mile drive home.

What makes this house unique

It's hard not to fall in love with this home each time you turn onto the 17 mile drive after passing the Lodge at Pebble Beach. A curve in the road, a slight turn, and then just before coming to the Lone Cypress you turn up the driveway. Parking the car and climbing a few short stairs to the wooden gate, worn to a weathered gray finish evoking a sense of time and place. The pebbled decks speckled with flower pots, lemon tree, multiple hummingbirds, and more greet you as you turn to the 2 story front entry way filled with light.

We almost always park the car and immediately walk the 200 yards (or less) to the Lone Cypress to enjoy the remarkable setting. We hope you will find the same joy.

Cool house; cool location

  • 5 of 5
This retro style house with Mad Men style decor, was a terrific place to stay for a few days. The house is right on the 17 mile drive; an arm's length from the frequently photographed "Lone Cypress" tree. The home had all the amenities we needed, and we got a great review of the home from the caretaker upon our arrival. We also enjoyed reading the notebooks with information about the history of the home and its owners. Our group included three active boys ages 7-10, and they enjoyed the flat screen TVs and guest house. Younger children would have to be watched closely in this house with its multiple stairs and delicate furnishings. The outdoor patio area was lovely, and we got the full summer fog effect we were expecting. We really enjoyed walking and jogging in the area, especially in the morning before the tour buses started coming through. It was really great to get a first hand view on foot of the very exclusive Cypress Point golf course and enjoy the sounds of the sea lions. We also had nice meals in Carmel at Em Le's for breakfast, Christopher's for dinner and an after dinner drink at the Tap Room at Pebble Beach. It was a great weekend!

40th B-day Trip

  • 5 of 5
This house is in an awesome location. It is close to everything in the Pebble Beach Resort and Del Monte Forest. The house was great for our golf trip. The house has plenty of space for several couple or for multiple singles. This would be a great golf trip house or just a relaxing vacation.

We just enjoyed a wonderful long weekend over Easter. House looks like something out of an older Sunset Magazine. Blends into the environment unlike some of the more recent ghastly additions. Floor plan was fantastic for us and our grown and married kids and infant grand daughter. Guest house provided some space for one couple while the upstairs bedroom was perfect for the other couple and our granddaughter. The outdoor courtyard was wonderful for dining and morning sun and it also provided our dog a safe place to come and go with freedom. Some deferred maintenance but we appreciated the trustees instructions to keep the rental rates within grasp of those that would benefit from the beauty of Pebble Beach. All of us slept superbly to the sounds of the surf which is visible from almost every window. The great room was the perfect place to view sunset thru the cypress trees if you were unable to be outdoors. They thought of everything when they sited this house. Some stairs were difficult for those of us awaiting newer knees, but I wouldn't have missed it.
I think the only item we were searching for was a coffee grinder but kids ground the beans at the store. It would also be handy to have a fresh bar of soap in each of the showers. Luckily I caught this before the kids left the grocery store in Monterey. Thank goodness for cell phones.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed the home and found all the spaces workable for the multi-generational gathering. We definitely agree on the multi-level structure information you shared and continue to highlight that - so those with trouble climbing stairs should opt for other one level homes! Definitely appreciate the idea on the soap and the coffee grinder. Thanks and we hope to see you again.

Excellent place to come back to time and again!

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful home is both warm and inviting. It's tastefully decorated and was everything we expected and more. It had all the necessary amenities and plenty of light and space to spread out in. We had a girls' weekend here and loved it! It's close by The Lodge, beach and the iconic Cypress Tree. It's a comfortable place to relax and the hosts, Tracy and Stuart, were very helpful and friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend renting this wonderful home for your next visit to Carmel. We will be again!

Relaxing and Scenic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We loved every minute of our stay at this home. The property is unique and architecturally stunning. It is modest for the area, which we appreciated. You can feel the pride in ownership that went into designing this home. We would have been happy spending our entire vacation in the living room and patio surrounded by forest with views of the crashing pacific. The furnishings in the living room, kitchen and loft are modern and comfortable. We enjoyed the game table and made memories teaching my son checkers. The private and gated patio was lovely in creating an indoor/outdoor living space and for making those in the guest house still feel a part of the main living quarters. The privacy of the guest house was wonderful as two of our party didn't need to wake up as early as the kids that were staying in the main house. The bedding was high quality and each bed had very comfortable foam pads which cradled us to sleep each night. As one reviewer noted, there is very little sound insulation between the upstairs and master bedrooms. Better to utilize the guest house if you need complete privacy. The house felt extremely clean. The kitchen is a little small and can be cramped if too many are preparing food at the same time, but it was well stocked and had every gadget we could possibly need as well as a nice new range and microwave. The bathrooms are dated, we didn't plan to spend much time there so not a problem. Tracy was beyond friendly and easy to communicate with and Paul, the handyman, was friendly and prompt in meeting us to hand over and pick up keys. He gave a nice tour of the house upon arrival. One thing to mention, the upstairs room doors lock from the outside so if you happen to have a toddler with you who happens to have just learned how to lock doors, you could find yourself locked in the upstairs room with no way to get out. lol!

All in all it was a lovely trip to the peninsula. Tracy provided aquarium passes which was great! Spanish Bay and The Lodge are easily accessible and we found ourselves sitting by the fire pits at Spanish Bay 3 out of our 4 nights. We were able to use the house as a starting point for trips to Point Lobos, Carmel, Monterey, and Santa Cruz and we of course took the 1 to get to the house and made a must see stop at Nepenthe for lunch. We could have easily stayed longer. We will most certainly be back! We are thinking about making this an annual trip for our family. Thank you for your hospitality!!

17 mile drive home

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful vacation home along 17 mile drive. Fenced in patio for pets. Guest house for grandkids was a plus. The home was very clean and nicely furnished.The only drawback was the stairs up to the entrance and to all the different levels in the home: difficult for the elderly, handicapped, or toddlers. Enjoyed the home and its central location to Monterrey and Carmel. Would love to come back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I would completely agree that the multi-level architecture of this contemporary home is not suitable at all for those who can't manage stairs. We try to highlight that on our VRBO page. It's a good reminder. We sure hope to see you again.
