I am a thirty year resident of Big Sur. I came here as a young woman and found my home in the magic and spectacular scenery of the Big Sur coast. It is my pleasure to share this unique experience.

I love Big Sur and have lived here for over thirty years. It is a unique and sometimes challenging place, offering a lifestyle that few experiance. I was presented with the opportunity to purchase this land and build a dream.
This property offers a romantic getaway for 2, a cozy place for 4 or can be combined with the stand alone guest house for a family gathering (see listing #3783826).
Hello, just a few lines to say thank you for letting John and I spend time at your beautiful home. John calls it "Heaven on Earth" and he also tells me it was his best birthday ever, thank you many times and we hope to stay there again.
My husband and I rented this wonderful home for a much needed weekend getaway. Even though it rained (actually poured!) the entire time we were there, our weekend was heavenly. You couldn't ask for a nicer place to "cocoon" and relax -- we kept a roaring fire going all day and evening. The owner provides everything you need except for fresh food -- all spices and condiments were there, lots of "dry" food on hand as well. All firewood, kindling, etc. was provided. We were there for 3 days and never once left the property. My only regret is that because of the rain, we weren't able to fully take advantage of the fabulous deck and view. I could have spent hours on that deck with a good book and a glass (or two!) of wine. Instead, I made due in front of the roaring fire, snuggled under a blanket!
The road up to the house is pretty challenging. I wouldn't show up in a low riding sports car during inclimate weather and expect to make it up that road. We were in a small SUV and didn't have any trouble. Since we didn't leave the property, I don't know first hand how navigating it would be in the dark but I imagine it would not be too fun.
The caretaker, Andi, met us down below, showed us up the road and made us feel more than welcome. She was great! She can also fix anything and everything.
This property is especially wonderful if you are a dog/cat lover -- between Andi and the owner, you'll have lots of dogs to play with and love on if you wish. If you don't, they will keep the dogs confined and away from you. There are also several great cats who live on the property and love attention.
Even with the gloomy weather, we had a marvelous time and can't wait until we can get away again and return!
Breath-taking views, great kitchen, comfortable bedrooms! We had a wonderful weekend here.
This home lives up to its description and more. The gorgeous views and the jacuzzi bath tub made for a truly relaxing and luxurious visit. The custom style of the home and the high end kitchen were two of my favorite things about this place. Quality furniture, fine linens and comfortable beds give this home a true designer feel with well appointed rustic charm. Overall it was very clean, the flowers around the property were beautiful( I couldn't stop taking pictures!) and the caretakers were very helpful when needed. It is close to Pffiefer beach and plenty of nice restaurants if your not up for cooking. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away and I certainly plan to visit again.
This property is unlike anything I have ever seen. I have never indulged in such a slice of heaven. The views and the accommodations are unparalleled. It being my first time in big sur, I don't know that I will ever enjoy such bliss anywhere else in the world. The anticipation that built on the drive down the road was magical. the care takers are so friendly and upon arrival my breath was taken my the vast views. When I walked through the doors, I knew I would never want to leave. Walking through the French doors out to the back deck, the landscaping and ambiance immediately drew me in. The kitchen is fabulous and the bedrooms are extravagant. I have never slept so deeply in my life. The most beautiful copper sink in the bathroom, the gorgeous tile work, and the amazing fire place in the living room was captivating. Having dinner under a candlelit chandelier was incredible. Located close to anything you could want to see in big sur. I would HIGHLY recommend everyone stay here. I felt like royalty and did not want to Leave. Worth every penny and more. Thank you for the wonderful, life changing stay. I am eternally grateful for getting to have even a moment at this magnificent palace.
Unfortunately, we cannot give this property a good rating. It was a huge disappointment in many ways. The very steep, treacherous road 2 ½ miles from the main road was not disclosed in the ad, and only referred to in reviews buried far down the list of reviews, which we missed seeing. But the worst part was the first 24 hours we had no electricity. And, it was a record-breaking heat wave of near 100 degree temperatures, so no power for fans (one in the bedroom did not work properly anyway), refrigeration, etc. Visiting for a very special wedding, we had no power for hair dryers, curling irons, irons for wrinkled clothing, morning coffee, etc. Many of the windows would not open, so no chance for cross breezes which made for a very uncomfortable 24 hours. The worst part, however came in haggling with the owner, who refused to grant our request of one day’s stay refund, claiming she was out nearly $2000 in getting the outage fixed, which was certainly not our fault. Although she refunded us $300, she argued that we were lucky to get anything. Better pass on this property; it is not worth the expense.
