First of all, welcome to La Casita at SOBRE SUR GRANDE. Hopefully your visit will be as wonderful for you as owning this land has been for us. Sobre Sur Grande is a 2 1/2 acre site, La Casa Principal and La Casita share a driveway then your reach the guest house down a private and secluded path into an oak forest that overlooks the Pacific. It is our home when not in California, and Johanne is very meticulous in its upkeep. Please enjoy it as your own. Monterey County is trying to create an ordinance to officially permit short term rentals...Until this is finalized they are operating on a '30 day minimum' rule, but feel free to be in touch if your plans call for a shorter stay. I know lots of folks in Big Sur and will try to help out. Rates vary throughout the year so the booking engi...First of all, welcome to La Casita at SOBRE SUR GRANDE. Hopefully your visit will be as wonderful for you as owning this land has been for us. Sobre Sur Grande is a 2 1/2 acre site, La Casa Principal and La Casita share a driveway then your reach the guest house down a private and secluded path into an oak forest that overlooks the Pacific.

I know lots of folks in Big Sur and will try to help out. Rates vary throughout the year so the booking engine may not be accurate. Please contact us. Our primary goal is to have guests feel the pictures don’t do La Casita justice. I hate it when I go to a place only to be disappointed. That said, hopefully the photos will give you a taste. Take a look at the reviews and I hope you’ll get a sense of visitors’ appreciation Tony designed La Casita for those seeking a totally 'cush yet private escape. When I decided to build it, the first thing i bought was the Wetstyle two person soaking tub...I actually designed the house around the tub! It sits in the bedroom, with a 5x8 window to the south east, looking down into an oak forest, and an 8’ sliding glass door with views to Rocky Creek Canyon and the Pacific Ocean to the south west. A pair of high powered binoculars is available to explore the canyon and ocean beyond The bedroom has a Simmons Black queen bed, with the tub and a river rock lined shower, complemented with thick terry cloth robes for lounging. The bedroom is heated by a 220v electic heater, as well as NuHeat radiant heat in the floor surrounding the bed. There is 40' flatscreen tv. The bathroom features a Toto toilet, and a commode with glass vessel sink looking out into the oak forest. If you do get past the bedroom, there is a full living room/kitchen with Miele washer/dryer, professional gas range, and and American Leather queen sleeper sofa. The living room also has a 60 inch internet/satellite tv, with wifi available, and a contemporary gas fireplace. There are shoji screens between the two rooms offering a modicum of privacy, if you are more than two guests. There are two decks, accessible from each room through twin 8 foot sliding doors...The hot tub is located below the decks with a one-of-a kind view of the PacificThe ceilings are up to 16' high, with a clerestory design affording a feeling of light and openness. I am a yoga teacher who still manages to enjoy the pleasures of good food, wine and company. And while peace and tranquility were my main goals , a bit of indulgence was also in the cards..So whether it's the hot tub under the stars (for your exclusive use), the flat screen tv's with satellite service and full wifi, or simply lounging around in the SobreSurGrande terry cloth robes, i've tried to anticipate your needs...If anything is missing, let me know....I get to exercise my inner travel agent!!! Located on a promontory, 1200 feet above the Pacific, La Casita offers unobstructed views of the ocean, Rocky Creek Watershed and the Ventana Wilderness. Yet it is only 30 minutes from Carmel and a few more to the center of Big Sur, along one of most beautiful 'commutes' in the world. You might just choose to stay home watching the raptors glide on the thermals rising up from the canyon below, then call our private chef, yoga teachers and body workers to come to you. If you're seeking adventure, jump in your car for a lovely drive to Carmel for golf, wineries, shopping and an indulgent dinner, or simply drive a couple of miles to any number of amazing hiking trails Sobre Sur Grande is 2.5 miles up Palo Colorado Road, with it's majestic redwoods and year round creek, then an additional 3/10 miles up a private road. Mill Creek Redwood Preserve is close by and the Botcher's Gap access to Ventana Wilderness provides the most amazing hiking opportunities. Down at the coast, Rocky Creek Restaurant offers incredible ocean front views and a great place to walk (or drive) . You're close to the best beach in Big Sur where Garrapata Creek empties into the Pacific. It's spectacular, yet completely accessible to families. Just remember Big Sur is a magical place....My motto is 'Start Slow....then Taper Off'More

The house was lovely, well equipped, and comfortable. We were very pleased with everything. The drive up to the house was challenging but very pretty. One needs to plan ahead for food and meals, but it is a great place to cook and have sunset...More

About the neighbourhood
My home is perfectly situated between Carmel and Big Sur for folks who want to enjoy both. Yet because of it's tranquility and privacy, you might not want to go anywhere once you're there
