I have been living on this property in the Carmel Highlands for over 30 years. I love the long views out to the ocean; the sunsets are amazing and even more so, I love watching the moon set and reflect on the ocean. It is a quiet and peaceful retreat to come back to.
This property is in a quiet and serene setting just minutes south of Carmel and on the coast. You can walk from the house to the ocean and do a 45 minute loop. Monastery beach is on the way to town with a level walking path to the Carmel River mouth. Walking on the white sand beach of Carmel is only a 15 minute drive away.
Whale watching during whale season from the house and the coast highway.

The spa area is totally private and seperate from the house. There is a large hot tub, chase lounges, sun umbrella and changing area. Ideal for rest and relaxation, a glass of wine, sun bathing, napping or watching the stars and the moon.
We spent 3 days here as part of a birthday celebration for my wife. The setting was serene, the home was exceptionally clean & well maintained, and the location was perfect ( away from the town, yet easily accessible). If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this is the perfect place to unwind, catch some breathtaking views and enjoy a quiet getaway in a beautiful home. I'll surely rent this place again if I am looking to travel to this region.
My two sisters and I spent a week at this lovely home nestled away in the trees with beautiful views of the ocean. We made good use of the hot tub, outdoor shower and enjoyed just relaxing on the deck in the peaceful setting. The location was awesome as we were close to shopping, hiking, beaches and sightseeing. The kitchen was useful and stocked with many items. It was a comfortable cozy place and we appreciated the many windows!
My husband and I spent a great week here. The house is beautiful, spotlessly clean, and comfortable. We especially loved the gorgeous deck, with great views of trees and ocean, the wonderful, private hot tub and outdoor shower, and the peace and quiet. The kitchen is large and well equipped. We found the location perfect, close to wonderful hiking, and only a short drive to beaches and Carmel. It was a pleasure working with Karin. She is an excellent host. She has thought of everything to make her guests feel at home.
We stayed in this house over New Year and had a wonderful time. It is in the Carmel Highlands and has a wonderful view of the ocean and we could see whales while we were there. It was good to be away from Carmel itself as it was such a busy time of year and we managed to avoid the crowds and traffics jams going North every afternoon/evening. It's a great location for exploring Big Sur and Point Lobos but also not far from Carmel. The house was very clean and well equipped and very spacious. The outside hot tub is wonderful!
This was our second Thanksgiving holiday spent in this lovely home. The owner, Karin, has the place set up for total comfort. During our week's stay, we were joined for a few nights by my son and his friend (stationed with the Marine's at the Presidio of Monterey) and my Dad. There was plenty of room for everyone to relax and hang out. We were able to cook a fabulous T-day feast in the gourmet kitchen and spend time on the deck overlooking the ocean. The hot tub was a big hit as was the new outdoor shower. If you are looking for privacy, comfort, and a sense of being home--this is the perfect place!
We enjoyed our 5 days stayvery much. The house was perfectly equipped, clean and well prepared.
Spot is perfect for trips to big sur, carmel, monterey with its aquarium, whale watchineg etc.
