Why Wendy Conway chose Jack's Peak
This is a family home, located in one of the most beautiful and most sacred places on earth. There are miles of biking, hiking, and horseback trails. We are five minutes from Carmel Valley and thirty minutes from Big Sur and have immediate access to the Los Padres National Forest. We are 10 minutes from Carmel Beach. One mile off of California's highway one sits the entrance to the family estate. The massive gates do little to betray what's inside, but the long driveway up the hill buffers the home from the horse country and golf courses that immediately surround it. Amazingly, even the locals miss the 2,000 acre regional preserve that sits at the end of the road and is consequently and basically a private wilderness to walk, ride and hunt native relics in. Exceptional shopping and restaurants are within minutes of Hacienda Aguajito.
What makes this Estate unique
Exceptional wildlife, resident hawks, owls, frogs, foxes, bobcats, deer and mountain lions. Fabulous birding with over twenty feeders for hummingbirds to mourning doves.

Unbelievably awesome place
I rented the Hacienda for 12 of us guys who had all turned 50 this year and came to the area from all over the country for a guys' trip/reunion. Simply put, this property and the property manager were awesome. The Hacienda blew us away and exceeded all of our expectations. It is a truly unique paradise. The only drawback was that we were only there for 4 nights!!!
WOW! WHAT A PLACE TO STAY
I can't believe this place. This was our second time in the last two years. It just gets better every time. The house is very comfortable and warm. The grounds around the house have lots to look at and the views are amazing! Thanks again to Cheryl Ray for all that she does to make sure things are right for your stay.
Magnificent House and Grounds
Our entire family spent a week at this wonderful house to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Our family consisted of seven adults and five children and we had plenty of room in the house for everyone. I really don't know where to start in describing how awesome the house and grounds were. The house itself is an architectural masterpiece which is spacious and well appointed. The kitchen area has everything required to prepare meals for a sizable group and a large beautiful table to adequately seat our entire family. All of the bedrooms are inviting with comfortable beds. The family room has comfortable furniture and a lovely fireplace. The grounds are simply wonderful. There are an assortment of gardens with beautiful flowers and plantings, an outdoor cooking area including a pizza oven, several sizable firepit areas and a teepee that all the grandchildren enjoyed. Sitting on the variety of patios in the morning enjoying a cup of coffee while gazing at carmel bay was a great way to start the day. Overall it was a wonderful and relaxing setting to celebrate an important milestone in our lives with our entire family.
Very accommodating for entire family
Beautiful home on beautiful property. Very clean and well kept.
Loved it just as much as the first time.
We came back this year once again and loved it! Very relaxing and great outdoor living!! We will definitely come back! We had babies with us and they loved it!
Last year our reunion group rented the Villa and loved it so much we rebooked for this year and are in the process of booking our 3rd year in a row after this years very enjoyable reunion! We used the outdoor pizza oven to make pizza and breads, the fire pits were an awesome way to reminisce in the evenings, the herb bath, sauna and whirlpool were very relaxing, we had numerous places to gather and talk, and one of our group stayed overnight in the teepee and loved it. The Villa is in a quiet and peaceful setting on the top of the hill yet only minutes into Carmel, Monterey or Pebble Beach. This is a GREAT place!!
Thank you so much. What a great bunch of guys! It is so rewarding to see how the Hacienda works out for people who have been associated for a long time. For families or long-time friends it is a place where great memories are made.
And this group is one that we now feel is part of our Hacienda family. We so look forward to hosting you next year, and can't wait to see what fabulous food you cook up. We'll have the teepee ready!
