I cannot say enough about this property except if you choose to stay here you will not regret it. My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights to celebrate our anniversary and coming from the East Coast it was a perfect retreat for rest, relaxation and romance. Mary is a delightful host and she truly goes out of her way to make you feel right at home. She also kindly surprised us with flowers and a bottle of wine for our anniversary. In addition, the kitchen is plentiful with spices, teas, organic honey, cooking utensils and everything you would need (besides for the actual food) to cook something delicious on the grill outside. Aside from the kitchen, there is an outside hot tub and fireplace as well as the wood burning stove inside which is perfect for curling up next to with a glass of wine. Privacy is the key that makes this property great for those looking to really getaway from everyday life and wake up to the beauty of nature. If the yurt is a bit too chilly to sleep in at night, which we experienced coming in mid February, there is also a cozy little loft inside the cabin itself with a view of the sky to see the stars at night. This property is also conveniently located close to a few cute little towns (Monterey, Carmel) and tons of great hiking trails which allow you to spot sea lions and whales. Perfect place to capture the breath taking views of the pacfiic coast. The drive there in itself will have you stopping for pictures.. We really loved our stay here and next time may make it a full week!
