Casa pequeño is a small hand done cabin with reclaimed materials throughout.Redwood siding,benches and bathroom counter were milled from windfall trees on the property.Ceiling decking,window surrounds,flooring and baseboard was reclaimed from antiquated barns in the midwest.Floor tiles in bathroom are reclaimed from France.The cabin has a queen size bed that is elevated in a loft.There is a 1/2 bath toilet sink inside.The shower and tub are outside.The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need to cook,there is a two burner propane stove ,under counter fridge,all the cookware ,plates ,bowls,utensils,coffee,sugar,olive oil,and spices.The cabin is best suited for a couple but there is also a day bed that folds down for one person.There is a short trail from the parking lot up to the cabin with a slight elevation gain.There are fruit trees that surround the cabin with sunlight most of the day directly hitting it.
We are a family of five that have lived in the canyon since 1973.We love to share the unique environment with visitors.
Aaron purchased this cabin in 2011
This property is close to both Big Sur and Carmel it is truly best of both worlds.Many of the VRBO'S in Big Sur are off dirt roads and bonus of this cabin is it is on a paved road.The cabin is far enough off the road not to see any cars.
I surprised my wife for our 5th anniversary, was not prepared. The descriptions a little vague, not close to town, 14 miles from a general store. 2.2 miles to a swanky restaurant. (I know had to walk it, cause my truck broke down in the driveway of the cabin). AWESOME. Great place very remote, bring a book, lounge chairs to bask in the sun, hiking shoes, lantern, bug spray or citronella candles,( Bugs are rampant) Binoculars to check out the awesome wildlife in the mornings or evenings. Hope your not closter-phobic or big and or tall, cause the bed is elevated to head height so someone (me) is subject to the ceiling about six inches from your face. Still a comfortable bed though. NO INTERIOR shower or bath, not clearly specified in the add. My wife made do though and actually didn't mind in the end. Was rather romantic and nice. All in all an awesome, wonderful place, will return and be more prepared next time to make it much more pleasant getaway.
We love this place. It offers exactly what we need it for: peace and quiet! It's private so you can use the outdoor tub and lay out on the deck. This is a great dog-friendly vacation too as carmel beach is just up the road as well as restaurants and shops if you want more activity. I might suggest adding a rug for the bathroom (tile gets cold!) and a screen for the window next to the bed ( it got a little stuffy but without a screen the bugs can get in). These are just nice to have not required. Aaron's wife called us to make sure we had all we needed. We will be coming here again and again! Love this place.
This is a late review - I stayed here in July and am now realizing I never reviewed my first rental on VRBO and a lovely stay. This place was not quite in Big Sur but on the border of Carmel. The place was quiet, secluded, in the middle of the Redwoods!!! and a perfect getaway for me, my boyfriend, and dog. Staying here in the summer, especially when the rest of Big Sur is not as pet friendly as you would think, was absolutely perfect. It was secluded and like you were walking through a pathway into a magical forest. The loft bed was comfortable, the space was just enough. The backyard aka the redwood forest was magical. It was quiet, peaceful, breathtaking, and the perfect place to step out of your busy life, turn off your email, and relax.
I could not have loved this place more.
Great getaway. Perfect place to disconnect and enjoy nature.
This is a studio at best and should be advertised as such. The pristine pictures of the outdoor shower and bath are false. The outdoor shower is completely overgrown with trees and weeds and the bath was completely dirty from who-knows-what living in it when travelers are not present. We have AT&T and we had no service (not just no bars, completely and utterly no service- not the fault of the owner). The owner did say, however, that we would have wifi. This was not the case. The Wifi did not work. When we called the owner's mobile and home phones from the land-line phone provided, he never returned our voicemail. We heard from locals that this property used to be looked after by someone else (clearly when these pictures are from). The current state of the property is terrible. I would only recommend a hunter-type person looking for a VERY remote get-away from any civilization to rent this cabin. Additionally, I would strongly advise against two people sleeping here. Last point, you must be in decent physical condition to stay here as you must drag your luggage in wheelbarrows (provided) up a decently-steep 75-ish meter gravel path which is fairly narrow and has steep drop-offs on the side.
Fabulous! What a magnificent getaway! Cabin was clean and well appointed. Bedding, kitchen supplies and heat all worked out perfectly. Cosy, but pleasant for 2 adults and one child. Didn't manage to connect to the wi-fi - but that was just a blessing in disguise! Great location - close to Carmel and also to the Big Sur coast. Excellent outdoor bathtub - lots of hot water, so great even in chilly temps! Highly recommend and cant wait to return!
