About the property

Restored to it original condition this home offers total privacy on 12 acres

Majestically situated on Point Lobos Ridge, this home offers the most incredible white-water and ocean views of Carmel and Pebble Beach imaginable. The home is positioned to take advantage of the natural wonders of the central coast. Experience the warm microclimate (15 degrees warmer than foggy Carmel), for you are perched high above the fog. Sunrises and Sunsets are 360 degrees and Carmel Village lights up the night below as the fog threading way through the Valley. Thousands of acres of California State Parks open space surround the property, with oceanfront hiking in Point Lobos State Park at the entrance to the road leading to the property. Vast open space precludes distraction, creating an abundance of stars and planet viewing.

Wonderful! We never wanted to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This is a special place. We loved the charm of this 100 year old adobe house with incredible views. The kitchen was incredibly equipped; I cooked Thanksgiving dinner and had everything I could possibly need at my disposal. The drive up is gorgeous, and even though you are only a few miles away from downtown Carmel and an incredibly convenient Safeway, it's as if you are magically transported away from it all to the idyllic peace and quiet in the mountains in a few short minutes. Point Lobos is beautiful and the view from the house includes the Carmel beaches, Pebble Beach, Spanish Bay and the Monterey Peninsula. Every morning I watched the colors of the sunrise against this magical view. Pamela was an excellent host and available for any questions we had. We had several dinner reservations, but cancelled a few of them simply because the kitchen was wonderful to cook in and we never wanted to leave the house. There were plenty of extra linens, pillows, towels, wine glasses, etc. We will definitely be returning to this magical place. We cherished every moment of our stay in this well appointed home. The perfect balance of a peaceful get away mixed with easy access to the charm of downtown Carmel and the breathtaking golf courses of Pebble Beach.

Owner's Response: Wow Holly. Thank you for capturing your experience in this review. My family and I grew up in the Adobe home. We are currently living on an island in the Florida Keys. We will however always consider the Adobe has our home. We are looking forward to your return visit. Kind regards, Lou & Kristin

Spectacular views & complete peace & quiet

  • 5 of 5

Complete silence on top of the ridge, with incredible views of Carmel, Pebble Beach, and the bay. A wonderful property with most everything you could want, including a well equipped kitchen. Our dog loved having the freedom to roam the property off-lead to explore to his heart's content - we swear he was smiling!

We'll definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. I’m sure your dog was smiling. Prior to Kristin and I having children Kristin ran an animal rescue camp at this property.

Truly enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

The property is very private with fantastic views although a couple trees prevented a better view of the sunset. The kitchen and bath are updated, they even had an expresso machine and our wonderful host Pamela even provided us with a pound of expresso, and wine!

The king and queen beds were comfortable, we used the couch/futon with a queen air bed that was provided. We also enjoyed the fireplace with plenty of wood provided and took advantage of the BBQ grill and washer and dryer.

It was a lovely retreat for our very busy few days in the area.

Peaceful and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This home was a gem of a find. Lou was great to work with and our host Pamela is exceptional. She insured we were always well taken care of and needed for nothing - reservations to suggestions she was the best. Can't wait to return!

What a wonderful surprise to come up the long drive to be overlooking the ocean and mountains... even more impressive than the photos! The check in was easy... and everything we needed was at the house. Highly recommended.

Million dollar views & luxury stay

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed kitchen, bedding and sheets and pillows were comfortable, the place had everything you needed. The outdoor space was INCREDIBLE, very clean, great grill. There is only one bathroom (BEAUTIFUL) make sure you travel with people who take quick bathroom trips! The shower and water pressure were wonderful. TV had so many channels! The internet was not super fast but great for a getaway when we wanted to unplug anyway! It takes about 7 minutes to travel from the main road to the home. It was an AMAZING and private location. We slept 6 comfortably, 2 couples and 2 singles.
