BIG SUR DREAM HOME

Big Sur House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Drive up to your own privately paved and gated driveway to a home with a full 365 degree view of redwood and oak ridges. Full sun all day long. Perfect for two people. Arrive, relax and take a dip in the hot tub viewing the beautiful mountain ridge as birds sing and red tailed hawks circle above.

Listen to the river flow as you sun bathe all day long without a soul to bother you. The deep, ultimate luxury about my property is solitude, and the stars at night.

Stunning views away from the world!

  • 4 of 5
A short 20 minute drive from Carmel along the beautiful coastal highway 1 and a left turn into the forrest brings you to Mary's stunning hill top cottage, with fabulous views across the valley and mountains. The house is a one of a kind with unusual but great design features all in wood. A massive wood burner heats the place to any temperature and Mary kindly provided wood for $8 a box that'll last you a long evening! The bedroom is situated in a large Yurt with a large sky light. Being there early December did mean that a dash to the bathroom required a warm coat! The hot tub and the outdoor fire place make this a perfect spot for long summer evenings. Thanks Mary it was surreal and we'll be back!

Did not want to leave...

  • 5 of 5
We did not want to leave so luckily there was an extra night available. We decided that we will be back next year and for a full week so we can have full active days and full relaxing days. We started from Redondo Beach and stayed in Paso Robles one night and then off to Big Sur. We made many unnecessary stops but now we learned and know now for the next time. If you are going up the coast I suggest staying in Big Sur and make day trip(s) to Carmel area.
Mary's place was perfect! Everything was clean and homey. We had the fire going every night inside or out and on our first night went into town 15 min's away and got groceries and an awesome fish market and everything else you need. We cooked all but 1 night and it couldn't have been a more beautiful setting. We jacuzzied a lot and came in real handy after a long 9 mile hike and then prepared dinner when we felt like it. Mary suggested Rocky Point for dinner one night and she was spot on. Ask for Thomas. TV is available but you can bring cards, games, books, etc. And don't forget a back pack if you go hiking.
Yes as mentioned in other reviews the beds are so comfortable. Sleeping in the yurt is such a great experience... I was a little apprehensive at first as I thought it'd be too cold but it was perfect. She has warm cozy blankets and we were fine even getting down to 43 degrees at night. Loved it. Highly, highly recommend.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
Great location if you want peace and quiet! Comfortable, warm with the wood burning stove in the main house, clean. Mary was very helpful and pleasant. We enjoyed the great light and views you have from the house and loft. The only draw back was its was cold and rainy on the first two days so we were hesitant to sleep in the yurt (no heat). But the loft was cozy and warm. The separate bathroom was no problem, albeit a bit cold at times. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to be secluded and relax!!

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
This is the true Big Sur experience.

The house is a crowning architectural achievement for the area, a rare and unique chance to rent and experience a home built by the brilliant Pacific Coast builder whose work graces the cover of Handmade Houses, the definitive book on hand built Pacific Coast houses.

The main house, outdoor fireplace and seating area, hot tub, bath house, and sleeping yurt together comprise a wonderfully inviting and serene place to spend a few days (or ideally more) unplugged and immersed in nature. Whether lounging in the glass-walled living room looking across a spectacular wooded canyon, sitting by the outdoor fireplace watching the stars, or relaxing upstairs in the out-of-a-child's-dream extra sleeping loft, this is the perfect place to relax and reconnect with a loved one or yourself and experience nature.

I have stayed in a variety of houses throughout the greater Big Sur area, and this is certainly the most unique. If you're looking for a house on an exposed ridge with an ocean view, this is not the house for you. But if you're looking for a remote, brightly green-forested canyon, wind-sheltered, magical indoor/outdoor architecturally-inspiring hamlet, this is the Big Sur experience for you.

Not to mention that the owner Mary is incredibly nice, helpful, and prompt in her communications around booking and planning your stay.

Highly recommended.

Our Honeymoon Dream House

  • 5 of 5
The most beautiful honeymoon ever!!
Marys house is so quaint and tranquil, and she is just lovely!
The architecture is amazing especially the front doors, the decor rustic yet modern as it should be in big sur..all the amenities two would need.
The yurt and the outdoor bathroom where my favorite..the full moon shining through the top of the yurt was amazing and bright. The glass walls in the very private bathroom are awesome while taking a shower. The kitchen had everything you need if you were eating in,the grocery store was a beautiful drive to carmel only 20 minutes away,Mary had some lovely suggestions for eating out, she knows her stuff as she has been a resident for many many years.

I can not say enough about this place, and it made our honeymoon perfect!
the only suggestion to Mary is flannel sheets in winter :) it is cold at night.
Hopefully we will be back to celebrate our 1st anniversary!

Thank you Mary

Mary's Big Sur Dream home was just that...a dream! We had such a beautiful and relaxing weekend. It's clear that a lot of love went into that house and I can't wait to come back for another visit!
