If you build it, they will come.

If you install a private cliffside hot tub, they will come back.

Try and come up with a reason not to drop everything and hit the South Coast House at Post Ranch Inn—it’s the newly renovated and newly cliffside-hot-tubbed casa hidden at the edges of one of the country’s most beautiful resorts, taking reservations now in Big Sur.

So, Post Ranch Inn: it’s the kind of place where you could lose hours sitting around with your feet up, taking in all the bluffs-and-blue-skies beauty. And that’s just looking at the pictures on the website.

And the South Coast House is the most critical address on site: that’s the freestanding house, a 10-minute walk from the main property, the one that was nice but sort of black-sheepy, decor-wise. Well. Look at it now.

Two redone master suites, one upstairs, one down, each with cashmere bedding and private spa tubs. A newly state-of-the-art kitchen, which will serve as a beautiful backdrop for whatever you order from room service. And out on that private deck: the hot tub of your dreams, perched right there on the cliff. Away from the city. Away from everything.

Finally, a private time machine.
