The Space

Nestled in the oak studded hills of Jack's Peak, overlooking Monterey Bay and the Santa Cruz Mountains, this newly designed getaway offers fabulous views, security, and amenities. Just minutes drive to local beaches of Monterey and Carmel, 45 minutes drive to Big Sur and Santa Cruz, your home away is perfectly located to offer both proximity to the many choice destinations of California's central coast and a truely private setting.

Wonderful as a romantic retreat for two, with a spacious master bedroom and bathroom, or for a party or family of four, using the queen foldout living area sofa, each room accesses a deck and has views overlooking pine/oak forests and the ocean. This would be an equally ideal setting as an executive respite. Wood floors, beamed ceilings, modern kitchen, restoration hardware stlye farmhouse dining table and wood burning stove all combine to create a chic modern but rustic feel.

Now our home features a Santa Maria rock terrace with stunning views and the opportunity to socialize and celebrate around a blazing fire in the outdoor fire pit or barbecue using the Weber.

Janet will, at special request, cater your choice when it comes to hor'sdoevres or continental breakfast. Chip will gladly, with notice, offer clay court tennis time, instruction, or partner hitting. This experience will totally knock your socks off.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Chip and Jan were so welcoming and hospitable. When we arrived, there was some home baked banana bread and wine waiting for us. They showed us around the property and gave us great recommendations of places to check out. They hooked us up to the blue tooth surround sound system and set up some firewood for us to use in the fire pit outside. It was a wonderful retreat and they made us feel at home. It was also perfectly located - secluded enough to get away from the crowds, yet minutes away from downtown, hiking trails, and the beach. We would definitely recommend staying here and we hope to return someday.

  • For those travelling to the Monterey/Carmel area this Oceanview Charmer is a must-stay. Tucked away in the hills overlooking Monterey Bay, this beautifully decorated and meticulously maintained villa provides more a sense of home than of a guest house. For those that seek the best, you will find it here.

    Hosts Chip and Jan, the quintessential California couple, could not have been nicer and had us feeling that we arrived as guests but left as friends.

    Although we like to think of ourselves as travel junkies, our experience here far exceeded our expectations. Thank you Chip and Jan for such a memorable time. Looking forward to seeing you again.

  • Chip and Jan were fabulous hosts! We had a great Father's day weekend at their gorgeous property. Charming interior with an amazing kitchen and farm table - serene setting with beautiful views. A great way to spend a couple of nights away from SF in one of our favorite places!

  • I simply can't describe how awesome this home is! So private and tucked away from everything but just 5 - 10 minutes to the city centers of both Monterey or Carmel... I never knew a place like this existed!! Jan and Chip are great, too!... they greeted us and showed us around explaining all of the awesome features of the home... and left us fabulous fixings for breakfast and more! And, the view!! AWESOME!
    We loved it here and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place in Carmel / Monterey or wanting to drive the Big Sur experience and land back in a super cool spot!! Can't wait to return! Thanks Jan and Chip!!!

  • Chip and Jan were incredibly friendly and accommodating. Also, pictures do not do this property justice. The home is stunning inside and out, no detail was overlooked; This place is straight out of Architectural Digest!

  • We spent an amazing Mother's Day weekend at Chip and Jan's gorgeous "Oceanview Charmer"! My mom felt so special with this "getaway surprise". Chip and Jan's home is absolutely stunning with every detail making it a perfect weekend getaway. Our stay left us so inspired and refreshed. We cannot wait to be back to enjoy this perfect location again with breathtaking ocean views. Chip and Jan are the most gracious and welcoming hosts. They have thought about every detail to make each guest experience so special. It was awesome arriving (email hidden) stocked with eggs, juice and a delicous lemon bread loaf for breakfast the next day. What a great touch! We cannot wait to be back soon! Thanks for sharing this amazing place on Airbnb!

  • This was an incredible stay. The ocean views are identical to the picture and visible from the living area and bedroom. Chip and Jan were excellent hosts and the nearby area had plenty of great restaurants and things to do. The property had a great backyard area where we were able to grill and sit outside while enjoying the views. I would highly recommend this to anyone staying in Carmel.

  • A beautiful property, nestled quietly away from neighbors and the road, with views of the ocean. The guest house itself is beautifully remodeled, with an amazing kitchen - fit for any aspiring cooks. The personal touches, like the in-person greeting, homemade cake, and access to the shared clay tennis courts was fabulous. It was a great refuge form the bustle of a weekend wedding in Carmel and I would most definitely visit this charmer again.

  • We stayed for 3 nights in this delightful 1 bedroom house within a beautiful setting up in the hills overlooking the Monterey Bay . The house was immaculate and furnished to an exceptional standard. Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming and had stocked the fridge with essentials, excellent home made apple bread and a s'more kit for the fire pit outside. They also had great recommendations for local visits and places to eat. We really can not recommend this stay highly enough and will be back again soon.
