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 $350 per night. Weekly rate is $2240 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.

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.
This charming cottage is a must for anyone wanting to have a wonderful Big Sur experience, along with some privacy and personal beautiful ocean views! It really is what all the reviews are saying. From the moment we were unpacking, we saw whales feeding and with the binoculars they provide, it was just one of the many great highlights of the area. We stayed for a week and found it to be so peaceful and restful- just a great get-away in a great location.
The Gallery House (and Cynthia) was part of the best weekend of our lives. My (now) fiance proposed and surprised me with a weekend away in Big Sur. He spent days searching online for the perfect house for this special weekend and he chose Cynthia and Daniel's home because of its quiet charm and also because of its location perched on a cliff over looking the ocean at one of the most dramatic curves of PCH. The house is less than a mile away from the iconic Pfeiffer State Park with easy access to fantastic hiking. The house is cozy and comfortable, views of the white water from every room. As you fall asleep, you'll hear the waves crashing below and there is no better way to draft away. The pictures on the website are great, but they don't do justice to the great energy of the place-- the art, the decor, every detail considered. Even now, I feel like a part of it is with me.
Cynthia was a wonderful host, with just the right level of checking in and providing a wonderfully private romantic getaway for our "engagement-moon."
We can't wait to come back here for anniversaries and special occasions to come.
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.
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.
I have nothing but positive words and comments for this lovely home. It's everything and more. It's clean has everything you need. The views are awesome we had the chance to hear some seals the last few days that we were there. We meet Daniel and we was just the sweetest person. 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!!!!
