    Big Sur Modern Home with Gorgeous Views

    This home is located in the heart of Big Sur on a family ranch, a short drive from Pfeiffer Beach. You can either walk to the Big Sur Bakery, take a short drive to Post Ranch, or cook your meals in the modern open-concept kitchen. The property sits 1,000 feet above the ocean where the Pacific meets the mountains. Watch condors and hawks sweep the sky, the fog curl around the coast, and the sun set on the sea.

    What guests are saying:

    “The house and land are even more spectacular than the listing would lead you to believe. Situated right in the middle of Big Sur - just between Pfeiffer Beach and Post Ranch Inn, the house is a tranquil modern oasis perched on a remote hilltop, hidden down a long winding private road through cliff side cow pastures, nestled within a citrus and herb filled garden, with views of the Pacific Ocean on the horizon. Deer and hummingbirds are frequent and friendly visitors. The house itself is stylishly appointed, with comfortable bedding and inviting books to lounge. The kitchen is well equipped for even the most ambitious meal prep. And Kira is a kind, welcoming and attentive host. She is quick to respond to questions and very accommodating. I hope to return again very soon.”

    What guests are saying:

    “Came here for a mini honeymoon with my wife and we were blown away. Big Sur is our favorite place on earth, and the breathtaking views and lush surroundings make this place feel unreal and so, so worth it. Favorite surprise was the steep but beautiful path down to the private beach, with otters playing in the shallows. We spent the day in and out of the sauna and the outdoor baths, and the evening cuddling next to the fireplace. The TV is very old and difficult to watch, but you’re not coming here to watch TV, just have something else planned for when it gets dark out! The kitchen was lovely and fun to cook in and there are so many spots to sit and admire the view. Highly recommend.”
