Welcome to HawksNest Sanctuary!

Le logement

The perfect retreat for one or two awaits you. Just follow the steps toward the ocean to your patio. Step through your private entrance into the dining room, sit at the table or the breakfast bar and enjoy a meal prepared in your fully equipped kitchen with everything you could possibly need. Relax in your living room listening to music from the CD library on the Bose sound system, compose or play music on the piano, or watch a DVD from our extensive library on the flat screen TV. If you want a quieter activity, you can read one of many books provided from the stocked bookcase or simply watch the hawks soar or whales swim by. For exercise, there is an easy walk as well as a arduous hike up the private gated canyon, or you may walk down the hill to a private beach about a mile away. The full bath welcomes you for a hot shower or bubble bath.
The lovely bedroom awaits you with a sweet-dream-inducing Queen-sized pillow-top mattress. Not quite ready to sleep? So, you grab a towel, slip on the plush robe provided, go just out of the bedroom sliding glass doors and climb into the hot tub. There you watch the moon rise, perhaps a shooting star or two... all the while listening to waves crashing, sea lions, crickets, owls and the creek in the canyon below in preparation for the best sleep you've ever had.

There are many wild critters in the area including deer, fox, bobcat, mountain lion, coyote, skunk, wild boar as well as (a few venomous and) many harmless reptiles. We have abundant bird life in the area and are fortunate enough to have a bird's eye view of a Red-tailed Hawk's nest used every year by a mated pair of hawks. We cherish and respect all of the inhabitants of the area... human, and especially furred, feathered and scaled. Please tread lightly on their land.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

As your hosts, we want you to have a wonderful stay while visiting this retreat setting.

Although we live above the rental space, we cherish the tranquility of the property and our privacy as much as we respect those same needs for our guest's ultimate benefit. That said, we are happy to assist you with requests and we are here to help in any way we can. Otherwise, we will not be seen or heard unless you want to see or speak with us.

Autres remarques

Cell phone reception at the house and in the neighborhood is unreliable and often unavailable. You are provided with a phone that accepts incoming calls and allows you to make local calls.

Our WiFi is not strong enough for streaming, downloading/watching movies on your computer or using video conferencing. It is fine for checking email. This is a great place to unplug!

We are animal lovers and have three small, well behaved dogs and two incredible felines. You are welcome to enjoy them outdoors or ignore them. If you are also an animal lover, we ask that you help us continue to keep your space free from pet fur and dander by keeping our pets outside and making sure to keep screens and doors closed...we would not want to have your vacation dampened by their potentially unwanted behavior towards your belongings. If you do interact with our pets, we also request that you do not give them food as they are all on special diets. One of our dogs, Strider, only has 3 legs. [you’d never know it!] Mention this in your correspondence during the pre-booking process, and receive a special treat.

There are steps with a railing going to the retreat space. If you have knee/hip or foot problems our space may not be the right fit for you. Contact us with your concerns.

Our hot tub filtration system is chemical-free and keeps the water clean and crystal clear with no odor and is kind to your skin. The system is more sensitive than those that use the nasty chemicals. So please be thoughtful and don't wear lotions or oils in the tub.

There will be days (especially in Summer) when the ocean and even the canyon are obscured by fog. Sometimes we are in sunshine while most of the peninsula is in fog and vice versa. There is no knowing and no guarantee when it comes to weather or visibility...all part of the adventure and the mystery.

We do not have space for RV parking.

Sorry, no children under the age of 12... We live on the edge of a canyon and there are no guard rails.

Contact us prior to making reservations if you have special needs, concerns or feel it necessary to negotiate any terms or prices. Please keep in mind that unlike most places, we do not raise our prices during peak seasons or when special events come to town.

I spent 3 nights at Kevin and Jill's with my boyfriend for my birthday. THE most incredible Airbnb experience I have ever had or could even dream of having! From the moment I booked, they were in constant communication with any questions I had, going above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed to truly enjoy our experience there. It is not just a vacation or a getaway when staying here, but more so an entire experience that Kevin and Jill provide for you. We felt as if we were in our own private oasis as we enjoyed all of the activities in the surrounding areas. They also provide you with such a thorough, easy to understand guide to Carmel and how to maximize on your time there which really made a big difference! We absolutely loved how remote Hawk's Nest Sanctuary was, with still having an IDEAL location to get to everything you want to see. You will not regret treating yourself to a stay here!!!!

This home was absolutely gorgeous! We loved the space and the view was stunning. We needed some quiet time in between our trips in California and this was the perfect place. Our lovely hosts Kevin and Jill were very accommodating and made us immediately feel at home. The space was very clean and much larger than we expected. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. The hot tub was sparkling clean and such a treat each day. It was also a quick drive to go to downtown Carmel. We hope to come back again!

Great hosts, very comfortable place, quiet and with spectacular views. Perfect if you're looking to get away from it all for a few days and just relax surrounded by nature. Kitchen is well equipped for home cooking, bed is very comfortable and there are lots of books and DVDs to enjoy as you relax by the wood fire. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a haven of peace and quiet.

I am finding it difficult to express the true magic and beauty of HawksNest Sanctuary. The location, the views, the wildlife, the tranquility. Oh the tranquility! My boyfriend and I have high stress jobs in the medical field. We could not have found a better place to unwind and refill our souls. The pictures simply do not do the place justice. Being there you are not only surrounded by this beautiful scenery but also the sounds that come along with the ocean waves, breeze, and nature. Jill and Kevin could not be more friendly and welcoming. The communication was top notch. We felt complete privacy and only saw them when checking in and out. Their lovely animals were periodically seen but never once a bother. We joked that they took turns every morning walking the grounds to check that all was well within their territory. I must also mention we never heard a bark! The hosts pay quite a lot of attention to every detail in making your stay an enjoyable one. I can say without a shadow of a doubt this was by far our best airbnb experience. Thank you Jill & Kevin for sharing your gifts with us!

When we felt a retreat/holiday to Big Sur was called for, we had no idea that we would truly find the much needed sanctuary provided at the Eagle's Nest. This nest, and truly private space, is situated upon a canyon the edge of Big Sur. We could not have been more luxuriously comfortable. Kevin and Jill are the epitome of the term HOSTS. Without being intruding, they catered subtly to all our needs (which were somewhat great as we came in grief and illness). We spent our time at the Eagle's Nest reconnecting with the wonders of nature, each other, and resting while close enough to the amenities of Carmel to feel we were on a resort vacation. By sharing their beautiful space at the Eagle's Nest, Kevin and Jill have provided an opportunity for intentional reconnection that few Airbnb's offer. This place is not a hotel stay ~ in all the best ways.

Hawksnest Sanctuary provided us an amazing place to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We were in need of some R&R, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The views are amazing and we could watch whales from the hot tub and from the kitchen. Keven and Jill were awesome hosts, and although they live above the rental space, we certainly had all the privacy one would want. Their attention to detail is amazing! Hawksnest was the perfect place for us to celebrate a relaxing anniversary and to explore the coast south of Carmel.
