About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 baths, 1/2 bath, sleeps 16

Watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean, marveling at the beauty and craftsmanship of this handsome home, the perfect proportions of the architecture, the superb choice of wood and appointments, the crafted and stylized door handles and yacht quality cabinetry brings a sense of joy, serenity and knowing that people who really care built this home. Nestled between two canyons yet within walking distance of the historic Highlands Inn and renowned Point Lobos State Park, this place is a perfect get-away retreat for reflection and remembering what matters in life; a great place for reunions, family gatherings, joyous reconnections; a serene place for relieving the stress of life through immersion in the wondrous presence of nature.

Nestled between two canyons yet within walking distance of the historic Highlands Inn and renowned Point Lobos State Park, this place is a perfect getaway retreat for reflection and remembering what matters in life; a great place for reunions, family gatherings, joyous reconnections; a serene place for relieving the stress of life through immersion in the wondrous presence of nature. Awake in the midst of a Monterey Pine Forest to birdsong and repose at night to the crashing sound of waves and the sea lions barking in the distance. Enjoy a card game with friends by the fire or a glass of wine while admiring Bird Rock of Point Lobos State Park from the den. Indulge yourself in the relaxing warmth of the hot tub or renew your spirit in the upstairs sauna. Revel in the true pleasure of being alive and experiencing the love of God through his most beautiful creations.

Pacific View Retreat is ideal for reunions, special birthdays and anniversaries, wedding groups,and corporate retreats.

This house was not just built, it was artfully molded throughout. The front door is an artistic master piece, a stunning large block of redwood with a door handle crafted into a beautiful curve much like a whale’s tale. The cabinetry is exquisite - made from exotic woods including mahogany, cherry, Alaskan cedar and Pacific Coast redwood. Each room is a unique statement of appreciation and gratitude for nature’s beauty - including fine artwork, hand painted sinks, hardwood floors, and hand crafted furniture. The immense master suite has its own study/ exercise room where you can view the Pacific while cycling on the exercise bike or work on your laptop while enjoying view of Point Lobos. Not a detail was missed in this architectural spectacle designed by local architect, Peter Davis.

Spacious and clean, this 4000 square ft. house provides plenty of quiet private space as well as grand joining spaces. It is large enough to find a quiet corner for reading or meditating and has ample together spaces for playing board games, chatting over the day's visit to local sites, or relaxing in front of a movie. The spacious kitchen with adjoining greenhouse breakfast nook is alive with morning sun and a fun space for group cooking and cheer. In the great room, the formal walnut hand crafted dining table can seat twelve for large dinner gatherings in the warmth of the fire place. The large windows throughout the house bring nature inside, with magnificent scenic views that create the feeling that nature outside and inside are integrated. Two decks provide sweeping ocean views. Pacific View Retreat sleeps 12 in 3 kings, 2 queens and 2 twin beds. 2 sleeper sofas (1king and 1queen) can accommodate another 4 guests.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Pacific View Retreat for a family reunion/retreat/celebration. It was just the perfect house for the eight of us, both the house itself and the location. It was overcast nearly all the time and we didn't even care. The house is very well appointed, beautifully designed, and offers enough space for solitude when wanted or room for eight to sit comfortably. It is an easy drive to many of the most beautiful spots in the area and there are easy and spectacular walks not more than two miles down the road.

12 ladies on a women's retreat had a great time. The home was clean and well stocked. This is our second stay. We'll be back!

Wonderful pacific sunset home

  • 5 of 5

Had a splendid weekend with a dozen friends (super spacious could easily sleep the full 16), hanging out, catching up, enjoying great food and wonderful view of sunset over the ocean. We also took full advantage of the amenities and games including hot tub, ping pong and pool table. Keith was responsive with all questions we had and also surprised us with a bottle of welcome wine. Unfortunately Big Sur remained closed after the latest storms, we did take time to enjoy a bike trip along 17 mile drive, roaming Point Lobos and strolling around Monterey.

In a nutshell, this is probably the best house for a group in Carmel!

Beautiful Views & Home - Easy Check-In

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay for two nights over spring break with our kids. Very much enjoyed the home and it helped open up a sense of wonder between the two kids. Lots of private space to get away from the bustle, but also very comfortable and cozy. Home is older and has some wear/tear, as you might expect, but kitchen was well outfitted for the basics and linens and bedding were all comfortable and well cared for.

Beautiful woodwork and magnificent views/location.

Magnificent views!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better location! One of the most scenic spots on the beautiful California coast. Private and nestled in the woods yet close to extraordinary hiking at Los Lobos state park, and conveniently near to shops, markets and restaurants of Carmel by the sea. Our group of 9 relaxed and appreciated this wonderful home and its spectacular surroundings.

A beautiful location and disappointed with the upkeep of the property

  • 3 of 5

This once beautiful home was quite dirty. There were many bugs in the kitchen and the towels were very worn. In addition, the plugs in the kitchen did not work.

Owner's Response: The home is still quite beautiful and I have addressed the cleanliness issue with the cleaning crew with special emphasis on ensuring the bugs problem is resolved and not using linens that should be replaced. The plugs in the kitchen were a simple matter of resetting the circuit. I hope any future guest will call with any issues like this so that I can address them immediately during your stay.
