The house has a stone fireplace, wood is furnished. There are decks off the Living room and Master bedroom. Master bedroom is generously sized with a queen bed. Bath has extra long and deep tub. 2nd bedroom has a double sized bed. The house has a DVD, but no television reception. Patio is great for dining or lounging.

LOVELY AND SERENE

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here for 5 peaceful days. We were very pleasantly surprised with how thoughtfully the house and surrounding landscape was arranged. Everything we needed was provided and well maintained. The house itself is like a tree house -- many windows have gorgeous views through the trees and are filled with a lovely golden afternoon light. We found it restful and convenient to many places in Big Sur that we wanted to visit. It is a pleasant walk down to Pfeiffer Beach, a wonderful destination in and of itself. It is also close to some of Big Sur's more interesting restaurants. So glad we stayed here!

ABOVE AND BEYOND

  • 5 of 5
This is the sweetest cabin-like yet tasetful upscale retreat space. Its so close to the beach, close to town, tucked away in the trees, and very cozy. We loved the decor and thoughtfulness that went into making it a beautiful space. We loved the fireplace with wood stacked and ready to be burned (we were there during a winter storm). We loved the bath tub. And it had everything we could have needed. But most of all, the owner of the property went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy and satisfied with our stay there. She is so friendly and welcoming (over the phone). We will definitely stay there again when we return to Big Sur.

GREAT LOCATION AND BEAUTIFUL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautiful house we had the pleasure to stay at. You walk into the garden and know this can be a place to relax for a few days. Once you enter the house, you see how much work has been done to make you feel at home.

There were two couples that stayed here which worked out great as the bedrooms are on separate ends of the house with two separate bathrooms. The master is a large beautiful bedroom with the second a bit smaller but no worries as you don't do much but sleep there anyway.

The gardens and balconies are amazing. Very relaxing and secluded area to enjoy each others company. We were able to cook all meals at the location which gave us more time to enjoy.

The house is situated near all of the parks, beaches, and attractions in Big Sur. Very easy drive to anywhere you wanted to go.

I highly recommend the house and enjoyed the peace and quite it gave us.

A VERY PRIVATE RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Japanese House over Labor Day weekend and would like to post our findings.
Pros: A very private one in a wooded setting. Wonderful outdoor living areas. Within a mile of one of the nicest Big Sur beaches. Large master suite and very nice soaking tub. Very nice owner who made renting easy with a property caretaker to answer questions locally.
Cons: very steep, single-lane driveway is a little scary although only two houses on it and only one encounter with another vehicle over 4 days. Kitchen pots and pans are old and few in number. Utensils (serving spoons, spatulas, scrapers, peelers) are very limited. Serious cooks should bring their own, or eat out. Cool evenings would have welcomed a few warmer blankets for beds. Entering the house through the master bath is inconvenient and awkward. There is a front door but it has been screwed shut. There are no accessible trash/recycle cans. With 4 adults needed to empty bins before end of stay. Caretaker took away but no where to put dog poop. Not a huge deal, just annoying
All in all, a restful, quiet stay.

GREAT HOME AWAY

  • 4 of 5
This home is a very nice find. Here are some of our inputs...
Pros:
The house was clean and ready upon arrival
The location, quality, and outside living areas.
The close proximity to one of the nicest beaches in Big Sur.
The house is centrally located to all the amenities one might need during your stay.
Lots of personal touches lend warmth and a homey feel.
The large master bedroom.
Cons:
The front door entering thru the master bath is weird and detracts from the livability.
The kitchen lacks some basic utensils (serving spoons, rubber scrapers, etc) and the pots and pans are few in number and largely old and worn. If you plan on really cooking, I would suggest bringing what you need.
We couldn't find garbage or recycle cans outside. With four adults living in the house we generated garbage and recycling and had no where to put it. We had to call the property caretaker to come get it as leaving it outside in the woods did not seem wise.
The house could use several more blankets for the beds as the ones provided are thin and light.

OUR NEW BIG SUR FAVORITE

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to Big Sur for years but have never rented a home. Now we can't imagine coming to Big Sur and not renting this home! Japanese House exceeded our expectations in every way. The location is fantastic. We loved our easy trip down the road to the beach. Short drive to hikes, general store, restaurants, etc.

When our family of four first arrived, the Japanese garden greeted us. Perfectly tranquil. Every room in the house was cozy and unique. We loved all of the Japanese touches.

The kitchen offered all of the functionality we needed. We ate quite a few meals at home. The balconies were lovely and allowed a nice view. Our favorite part of the entire stay was a quiet afternoon/evening in the Japanese garden/patio enjoying our children playing, the native Big Sur trees in the distance, the hummingbirds in the garden, and the amazing smell of the Big Sur fresh air.

Thank you to our wonderful host who was very easy to work with! Thank you for offering this home for others to enjoy the beauty of Big Sur in a peaceful, convenient, comfortable setting.
