Welcome to HawksNest Sanctuary!

Nurture your body, mind and spirit on the edge of wilderness. Enjoy 180 degree ocean views over a redwood-filled canyon from your own private, spacious, peaceful abode. Fill up with the beauty of nature, sunsets, night skies from every room, patio & hot tub... Breathe.

To book, select the “Contact host” link below as opposed to the red “Request to book” link to the right. If you are using the app, it is the the “Contact host” link at the bottom.


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.

Interazione con gli ospiti

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.

Altre cose da evidenziare

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.

California is enduring severe water shortages. We ask that you PLEASE be mindful and conservative in your water usage. When you are not in the space, please turn off the lights & heat.

We realize you will be on vacation and we will not be bothering you, but if we call or email while you are here, we have a good reason and therefore, ask that you be courteous enough to respond. [We cannot text unless you have an iDevice which uses iMessage.]

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!

Cell phone reception is non-existent. There is a land line in the space for your use.

If you are looking for a place that will make the already transformative experience of the California Coast even better... look no further. The Hawk's Nest cannot be topped as far as location, accommodations, communication and expectations. The experience begins, literally, the moment you request your stay. The communication is top-notch. Kevin and Jill create a unique exchange of advice on what to do, how to get there, what to bring and what to do in the area all based on your travel plans. The Hawk's Nest is furnished beautifully and comfortably and includes all the amenities of a home away from home. It is obvious in everything they do that their intention is for their guests to be transformed by their experience and to leave better for having visited. Every detail has been met and they leave nothing to chance in the way of guests having everything they could possibly need for an amazing stay. Morning walks in the canyon, driving along the coast, sitting still surrounded by the tranquility and beauty of nature and evenings in the hot tub under the stars all add up to a one-of-a-kind adventure. We stayed 4 days and, like many others who signed the guest book before us, we will head back for another stay in the coming year.

This was our third trip to Kevin and Jill's place, and it just gets better and better each time we come! This place for us is the ultimate in relaxation, just to gaze out at the ocean and the changing sky, beautiful in all weathers. The sanctuary that Kevin and Jill have created is so close to nature, and also so luxurious, it is the perfect place to really unwind from hectic city life. It is perched high up above the coast, and the home is perfectly designed for enjoying the beautiful vistas, with large windows to the peaceful canyon and over the open ocean, with abundant bird life to be observed all around you. We spent lots of time watching the birds from the front of the house, relaxing in the hot tub which is amazing both day and night, and we visited the redwoods in the canyon where we had an exciting and close encounter with a huge golden eagle! If you are looking for peaceful time in nature with your family then you could do no better than to stay at the Hawks Nest. Kevin and Jill are truly fantastic hosts, they really have thought of everything to make your stay so comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen is very well equipped and easy to cook in, the bed is comfortable and the fireplace is so cosy on a chilly evening. From here you can easily access all that Big Sur and Carmel have to offer, but you can also just stay at the house and truly relax. The only problem is: you wont want to leave!

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 was one of three girls with the name of Kevin in my high school graduating class.

I feel blessed to live with my partner of fourteen years on this sacred piece of land at the edge of wilderness overlooking a canyon and the ocean. My wife Jill & I write and create various expressions of art while care taking the property, our menagerie of pets and other creatures that also call our property home.

We love sharing our blessings with like-minded people who appreciate and can benefit from “fillin' up” their souls with the many gifts this property offers.
