Spectacular views

  • 5 of 5
Lovely home, very clean, spacious master suite, tastefully decorated with spectacular views of sky, sea, & land. A bit difficult to traverse last mile to location but well worth it. Only negative; no television for viewing of a couple of desired sporting events.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this home in Big Sur! The home was gorgeous with an incredible view. Six adults were very comfortable here. The pantry was well stocked, which was a nice treat! The owners were very pleasant as well. We would certainly stay here again!

Perfect location, perfect view, perfect home for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Our group had a fantastic time! The house is very well kept and had everything we needed (soaps, towels, cooking supplies & dishes, etc.). The homeowners have nicely labeled things around the house to help with navigating your way around and had welcoming music playing when we walked in. There are beautiful, huge, open windows facing the outdoors with a distant ocean view and perfect breeze coming through.

The drive up the dirt road was a bit scary for us-we had a 4 cylinder hatchback and the road has many potholes and it's only meant for 1 car but there isn't any way to know if a car is coming down. We still had an enjoyable time cooking, resting in hammocks and listening to the sounds of nature all around but did cancel plans to go into Carmel and had friends who planned to arrive later in the night switch to driving in the morning for safety.

Overall, we enjoyed the home and the scenery and would recommend this rental to others who may be seeking a secluded getaway! There is a Safeway/shopping center about 13 miles away and Carmel by the Sea (shopping, restaurants) is another few miles.

Worth Every Penny

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here on my family's annual vacation, and everything was perfect. The location makes you feel like you are entirely removed from civilization, yet a trip into Carmel takes less than 30 minutes. Being above the fog is a completely unique experience, making for incredible sunsets. We all wanted to stay longer.

Beautiful home in remote location

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful home is set back way up in the mountains above Big Sur. It's probably as close as you can get to the park without shelling out a fortune or staying in a closet-sized room. While you're there, enjoy the well outfitted home and the spectacular views. Stay up light and do some star-gazing, since you'll be very far from any light pollution. Take a comfortable nap in 'Hammock Hallow" [sic]. Or cook a meal in the sizable kitchen (though bring all your essential ingredients with you as the nearest shopping is half an hour away).

The only thing to keep in mind is that, being a secluded location, it can be a little tricky to find. The dirt road leading to the house is private, with the only signs being hand-painted wooden boards nailed to various trees. Definitely arrive during the day, and don't trust your GPS. You will have no connectivity whatsoever until you get there and can use the WiFi.
