OCEANFRONT ROMANTIC BIG SUR COTTAGE WITH STUNNING COAST VIEWS

Big Sur Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

THE GALLERY HOUSE

Enjoy the beauty of Big Sur in this unique redwood, rock & glass oceanfront cliff-side home, that is embraced by tall cypress and Monterey pines, on a gently sloping rolling green lawn to the Pacific’s edge. A sanctuary by the sea.

This home consists of a living/dining room, kitchen, one bedroom and a bathroom with shower & dressing room attached. The bedroom is a perfect couples romantic getaway for 2, with its queen size bed and ocean view, or use the single size sofa bed in the living room and the queen bed in the bedroom for 2 friends.

Relax by the fire, enjoy the chaise lounges on the sun-drenched southwest facing stone patio with fantastic ocean views. We also are just over a mile away from the famed Esalen Institute for hot springs bathing, workshops, and their world renowned massage treatments. Enjoy the many galleries, shops & cafes nearby.

Unplug from the cell phone and the computer and simply relax, renew, reflect and retreat in this stunning location in Big Sur with nearby hiking trails, galleries and fine dining for your enjoyment. A perfect place for a personal retreat, meditating, practicing yoga, reading, creating art, writing poetry or allowing your next book to flow through you.

Or perhaps you will want to just unwind in nature enjoying the dolphins dancing off the coast or the seasonal passage of the whales. Sit on the bench at the cliff edge and delight in the sea otters playing below as the hawks and often condors soar high above.

Spend time with your sweetheart in a special place for just the two of you. Come renew your love in the perfect romantic anniversary spot. Reconnect with an old friend in our natural environment. Or perhaps you just need time alone, away from it all in a place of great beauty.

On your way here, enjoy the drive on beautiful Highway One with it's scenic turnouts, beaches and state parks along the way . We suggest you stop in the lovely 2 small towns in either direction, that's Carmel or Cambria, to shop for groceries and gas before driving down or up the coast, as Big Sur has only a few places for these, and you will want to stock up before your trip.

Owned by 2 artists & meditators, the energy here is very inspiring for artists, writers, poets, meditators, couples or friends, as mentioned above. This land was considered a sacred site by the ancient Esselen Indian tribe, and we ask that you honor the feeling of this land as a wonderful sanctuary retreat.

The house rents for $300 per night. Weekly rate is $2000 for 2 adults only, please no smoking anywhere on this property or in the cottage and no pets. TOT Tax & cleaning fee apply. See more details in the rate section of this listing.

WE DO NOT USE THE ON-LINE CALENDAR, so please call us to inquire about your dates and to arrange your booking as we prefer to screen and connect with our guests and meet you first by phone. At the time of booking we will ask for your personal registration information. Then after receiving your check we will give you directions, and confirm your reservation.

We are 2 artists living and working in Big Sur for nearly 40 years. We teach workshops at nearby Esalen Institute in art, photography, dance, meditation and inspiring intuition. We both exhibit our art in local Big Sur & Carmel galleries, and are in museum and private collections worldwide.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1991

There is no other place like Big Sur in the world, with it's breathtaking beauty & it's natural environment. We have some of the worlds greatest & most inspiring teachers, thinkers, artists, writers, poets and illuminaries living here or who have lived here or passed through. The local people, like a tribe of creative individuals, really know how to live life as human 'beings', rather than human doings. The land calls to us in her quiet spiritual whispers, where One can slow down and appreciate the simplicity of just being. We feel blessed everyday and are so very grateful to own property here in God's most magnificent creation!

It's all been said above, just leave the world behind and find a sanctuary for the soul here in an environment of a beauty that is beyond words.

INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE - EXQUISITE BEAUTY

  • 5 of 5
I am so happy to have had the opportunity to stay at Artist's House while I did massage training at Esalen. Cynthia and Daniel were the kindest, most thoughtful hosts imaginable. I enjoyed the impeccably designed home and the stunning views, and was opened by the spaciousness of the incredible ocean vista. Cynthia's artistic influence was evident in each beautiful detail of the home and grounds. I was just a 2-minute drive from Esalen, and amazing running trails were a short drive up the highway.

Staying here was a spiritual experience. I recommend you bring along Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind to read on the deck. I can't thank you enough, Cynthia and Daniel. Big hugs to you both.

Inspiring, rejuvenating & exquisitely beautiful.
  • 5 of 5
My partner and I stayed here for one of our best vacations ever. After completing an especially challenging treatment regimen, we needed the time to recover and renew after a very hard year. The owners, Daniel and Cynthia were incredibly nice and accomodating and have done a wonderful job creating a space that reflects the incredible beauty and energy of the area. Our stay there was maked by healing, inspiration, and joy. I can't begin to describe the absolute beauty of the cottage, but the sights and sounds of the ocean were a complete delight. Our visit almost felt sacred and we were so blessed to stay here.

In 10 + years of visiting Big Sur, I can attest this is the best place we've ever stayed. I can't imagine anything better. Thanks so much Daniel and Cynthia, you've created a wonderful space.

He made sure that we didn't need anything and was just over all friendly. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with me. I defiantly plan on making plans for a return visit!!!!

A PILGRIM'S PARADISE.

My boyfriend and I came to celebrate: his birthday, Mother's Day, time away from the kids and time by ourselves. Two days at the Gallery House did as much for our stress levels as it did to our souls. The beauty and strength of the ocean called us. We ran, we talked, we read and rested. We experienced the magic of an Esalen massage. Thanks Cynthia and Daniel for the beautiful inviting and powerful energy in your house. We feel as if we were two very lucky pilgrims to have found it. We will be back. Peace

HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
I recently spent a week at the Gallery House, and it was one of the very best times of my life. I spend time in Big Sur every year, and this time it was a solo trip for me. The cottage is absolutely wonderful – beautifully built and decorated, clean as can be, very private, with breath-taking views from every room. There is a wonderful collection of CD’s and inspirational books, along with videos, if you are so inclined, and many pictorial and guide books about Big Sur. The cottage is located within short (and awe-inspiring) drives to restaurants, beaches, hiking trails, art galleries, etc. Although I enjoyed daily sight-seeing and various activities throughout Big Sur and Carmel, I couldn’t wait to return to the incredible cliff-side views and total serenity at the cottage. From enjoying coffee or a glass of wine at the sacred spots outdoors, to reading a good book while listening to the crashing waves, to waking up in the middle of the night to look out the bedroom window at the sky with stars like diamonds – WOW, I can hardly wait to return. I truly left renewed with a profound inner peace that I intend to carry with me. This week was a perfect solo retreat, but, if you are fortunate enough to travel with someone you love, the Gallery House is the perfect choice. Thank you from the center of my heart, Cynthia and Daniel (two very special people), for sharing your home and offering such a beautiful experience to others.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, We hear "heaven on earth" quite often here in Big Sur and we have loved creating a place where people can share in that experience. Some folks living here want to keep Big Sur all to themselves, but we believe that we have been given a gift and it's a blessing to share it. Our guests like yourself are so respectful of the sacred energy here, so thank you again for your comments. I remember during our initial phone conversation your deep need for a retreat and we are so pleased you chose us to offer you sanctuary. Please return as often as you can to experience the night "stars like diamonds" and find your peace & renewal...Sweet Blessings, C & D

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
I hesitate to write this review since I really want this place ALL to myself. I am a total hotel snob, usually stay at the Inn at Ventana when visiting Big Sur. But, as I am now watching my money a bit more cautiously, I decided to try The Gallery. There are no adequate words to describe this small slice of heaven on earth. You have to come and experience it. But before you do, know there are five lovely sitting areas outside to enjoy the extraordinary views. Know that you can lie in bed, with the window open and hear the sounds of the ocean while you watch the Sea below. Know that your partner can sleep while you get up early and make coffee and go outside to sit in one of the lounge chairs, or perhaps the swing set, or picnic table or the bench on the edge of the Sea. Know that rabbits will pop out and greet you good morning and seals will bark below. Know that Van Gogh's starry night will appear while you savor every October night sky. Know that when you look through the binoculars provided you will see Dolphins and maybe whales too... passing by....just going about their business. And know that your business will be to be in the NOW, because at The Gallery there truly is no better place to be.
I came back to San Francisco altered...the next morning my Dentist said to me...what has gotten into YOU? And I realized...I was actually changed by the experience...an inner calmness and renewal for living had invaded my spirit.
Now THAT IS ONE GREAT VACATION!
But do not take my word for it...find out for yourself...you owe it to yourself.
I plan on returning again and again and again.
Cynthia and Daniel obviously have a very unique and special sensitivity to this property and it is reflected in every nook and corner inside the cottage and every serene space outside. I want to take this opportunity to thank them with all my heart.

Owner's Response: Wow, Dear Guests, that is such a beautiful reflection of our place and of yourself, as you express so beautifully what we feel about this land. This is why we created this guest home on our property, we wanted to share our good fortune with others and provide a sanctuary for our guests to truly be PRESENT & in the NOW, a gift that only nature can purely offer to "alter" and restore one's being. The whales, the dolphins, the bunnies, the views, the starry nights, and all your 5 sacred places await your return, you are welcome back anytime! And we thank you "with all our hearts" for your sensitivity to feel what we feel about this land as "heaven on earth"! Many Blessings, C & D
