Wonderful get-away cabin

My husband and I were looking for a place near Big Sur for a couple days of hiking and relaxation, and luckily found Monica and Joel's cabin. The road is was fine, and their directions were perfect. They were both warm and inviting, but we had complete privacy in the cottage. We took two hikes while there, the Soberanes Canyon Trail, north of the cabin near Soberanes Point off Hwy 1, and the other south in Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, the hike to the falls. Both were great, and the scenery was magnificent. Stopped at Pt. Lobos on our way back to the bay area. Not to be missed.
The cabin was just as described, perhaps even better. We weren't sure about the bedroom 'nook', accessibly only by outdoor stairs, but we ended up loving it. The double bed felt more like a queen and was incredibly comfortable. Having the sun wake us was a real bonus. Their new sauna is beautifully constructed and incredibly relaxing. We recommend it highly. Light the woodburning stove, wait about 15-20 minutes to get the room good and warm, then add water and yourselves. Used it four times in two days! The outdoor (single) tub was great as well. The kitchen was adequately outfitted - no microwave, but the basics were there. It rained and hailed on our last day, but with fresh coffee, warm blankets and good books, we were more than comfortable waiting out the storm. Thanks, Monica and Joel, for a terrific two days! We will be back.
