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.
My wife and I love Casa Pequeno. It's a perfect home base for days in Big Sur and nights out in either Big Sur or Carmel. There is also just enough there to prepare some spectacular meals and stay in to enjoy the solitude. Bugs can be a problem, but they were not too bad for us this time. We were a little apprehensive about the outdoor shower because it wasn't as warm and sunny as previous trips. That turned out to be much ado about nothing as both the bath and shower were even MORE refreshing on a cold day!
We loved this place. We hope to go back soon. We just think it would be good idea if you add a rug on the bathroom and screen in the door and window. We got there around 4pm and it was hot. We wanted to open the windows, but mosquitoes were all over, it's good idea to bring some repellent. Good thing we brought some. But the place have the perfect size and location.
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.
The Big sur,Carmel and Monterey peninsula area is famous for its
wildlife and natural beauty.Some call Big sur the greatest meeting between land and sea.Carmel has beautiful white sand beaches and outstanding shopping.Monterey is known for the world famous Monterey bay aquarium,cannery row and storied past.
