About the property

Welcome to Panoramic Point! “Days by the Sea” Sleeps up to 5 adults and 1 child age 12 or under.

**For more details about specials for this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.

A stunning 180-degree vista of the Pacific Ocean as well as Point Sur will amaze those who visit this special property on a hilltop along Highway 1. Located halfway between Carmel and Big Sur, the 2,800-square-foot residence on 2.5 acres provides not only magnificent panoramic views of the ocean, but also of rarely glimpsed Little Sur River Beach.

The three-bedroom, two-bath split-level home features a spacious 900-square-foot deck perfect for whale watching, and large windows throughout to take full advantage of ocean and mountain views. Cathedral ceilings and plenty of room to stretch out make for maximum relaxation here, as well as a tranquil environment that comes with this unique location. Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese, passes to the renowned Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear.

A long private driveway, with rusticsplit-rail fence and its own stunning vista point with a bench where visitors can enjoy the breathtaking views leads to the home. This is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset over the Pacific. The afterglow lingers on past the first stars of the evening. Words cannot do justice.

At the house, entertaining is easy with outdoor seating areas and a gourmet gas grill on the deck facing the ocean. The deck is just steps away from a generously sized kitchen and indoor dining area, which includes a convenient built-in bar cabinet. The kitchen includes granite counter tops, three sinks and an island for easy prep work, a four-burner Viking stove, and an over-sized double door refrigerator. In the dining area, a handcrafted rustic acacia wood table seats eight, flanked by large picture windows offering beautiful views of the ocean and trees.

The open floor plan makes it possible to carry on conversations throughout the great room, which centers on a wood-burning stone fireplace as the focal point. A sectional sofa, leather armchair, and 50-inch HDTV offer a gathering place for families or couples. A color scheme of ocean shades brings the outdoors inside, with eclectic décor that echoes Big Sur’s artisan community.

The master bedroom suite has a wood-burning fireplace, upholstered armchair, HDTV and a king bed with luxury bedding. The bathroom provides a jetted Jacuzzi tub, granite counter tops and tile accents.

The second bedroom down the hall is perfect for accommodating family and friends, with two full-sized beds and a twin day bed for a child. The second bathroom includes granite counter tops, tile accents and a combination tub/shower. A third bedroom can be found on the ground floor containing a full-sized bed and more ocean views.

The garage contains a ping-pong table, space for two cars, ample room for stowing beach gear and other necessities and a mudroom for hanging jackets. The property also includes a greenhouse, several outdoor patios and a bocce ball court with a private beach view.

The electricity for this home is provided by solar panels and a generator on site, however guests should be aware that it is not uncommon to have intermitent bumps in wifi and electricity. This is Big Sur Rustic and the trade off is the view, peace and tranquility. While we endeavor to provide constant access to wifi and electricity for our guests, we cannot guarantee Mother Nature will co-operate.

**There is an additional fee for pets**

Great House with a Great View!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house to rent. Having rented many houses over the years, this has to be the best. The kitchen was well-equipped (much better than most) and everything was spotless. The views are spectacular.

Gorgeous Home and perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This truly is a beautiful home and perfect for spending quality time with family or friends. Its was meticulous and Sanctuary Rentals made sure all our needs were met. The manager stocked the fridge for our toddler and made it all very easy and restful. It is a 15 minute drive to Big Sur so it is better for those who want to enjoy cooking and private time with friends and family. We made breakfast together every morning and then ventured out hiking and lunch or dinner in Big Sur. A very memorable stay.

Breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay. The house was perfect for a family of 4 with beautiful views from every window. We would have stayed longer if we could have as it is a place to decompress and enjoy the outdoors.
