THE JASMINE...A CABIN IN THE REDWOODS...BIG SUR BOHEMIAN

Big Sur House Rental Photos and Description

You will love this Big Sur bohemian style mixed with modern 'glamor-rustic' eclectic 3 bedroom home with a private yard located in one of the most beautiful spots on earth.

Great for family bonding time in nature, a romantic getaway, a reunion of friends or a private artist/writer inspired retreat.

You'll enjoy the redwoods surrounding the private yard with plenty of sunshine. There is a luscious master bedroom with comfy queen bed and wake up to a big window view of forest life.

Two small bedrooms...one with a sofa/double bed and the other with a sofa/single bed. The living room is a wonderful 'hang out' place for relaxation or group gatherings. It also has a sofa/queen bed. Great kitchen with all you need to cook or bake, a spa like bath with a beautiful forest view. Like all the dwellings in the 'Jewel in the Forest' property you'll have your art supplies for your expression and inspiration. Have a leisurely morning coffee or relax in the afternoon in the yard which is usually full sun, surrounded by beautiful Big Sur Redwoods. We are located halfway between Carmel & Big Sur....hiking in both directions, lots of nature excursions to beaches, rivers and forests, great variety of restaurants,galleries, shopping all within 20 min drive.

Conveniently located halfway between Carmel & Big Sur! Enjoy a spectacular drive along the breathtaking Hwy 1 to a serene and lovely forest road to arrive at this unique and 'glamour-rustic' home surrounded with the redwoods.

I am an artist so Blessed to live and work in this paradise forest in between Big Sur and Carmel. I'm inspired by the reality that each of us are nature and not separate from it. This is the basis of my work. People often ask me what kind of art I make and my response is that 'Life is the Art'! I work in many mediums including painting, redwood carvings, mixed media and of course the Essence Portraits I create for people have been a profound exploration into the hologram of time and space of a person's soul. I love the discovery of art as a medium for the universe of knowledge to come through the paintings and sculpture. I enjoy welcoming people from all over the world into my gallery & studio here on the 'Jewel in the Forest' property. We also have a small area I call 'Carabella's Theatre' where we hold seasonal gatherings, weddings, workshops etc. ?Feel free to check out my website or Sofanya on Facebook.

I remember the day I was drawn to this property and initially to the beautiful Dome House. It was as if everyone I encountered had a message for me. Since the moment I got here I've felt it to be my true home. I used to drive thru Big Sur on my way to LA on art business and this time I visited a shop that was carrying my wearable art at the time and the clerk in there said 'Sofanya you should check this place out....it's perfect for you!' I called to make an appt to see the house the next morning. The moment I turned onto this road to my house I recognized it as the place I belonged on the planet. When I drove into the driveway to the dome house my gaze was filled with a beautiful large young woman with long golden hair nursing her baby who was proportionally as large and gorgeous as she....it was like a bigger than life vision of nurturing. She showed me upstairs to the dome house. When I entered I had a strong sense that I made it home! I rented for a year and a half knowing that someday I must buy this property so that I would never have to leave. Miracles took place so that I could manifest that dream and here I am almost 17 yrs later. In that time we've had a theatre in the round in the lower dome level, art shows, concerts, workshops, community gatherings. Over time I found out that long before the dome was built the property was called 'Hoffman's Camp' owned by Carabel & Lou Hoffman. They used to have Sunday dinners for the guests cooked by Carabel...people loved staying here and couldn't wait to come back. I have photos from that era and now I once again bring to life the long history of welcoming new friends to this beautiful magical place on earth.

Peace in beautiful nature while being less than 20 minutes to countless fun activities in Carmel, Big Sur, Monterey, Pacific Grove and on and on!

Glamourous, quirky, 'camping' but with a luxurious twist - a beautifully appointed cabin with every modern amenity - greeted us after a long, twisty drive through stunning Big Sur woodlands...and our host Sofanya was brilliant. Kind, generous and welcoming, I could not recommend Jewel in the Forest more highly.

The Jasmine is a Jewel in the Forest

  • 5 of 5
The Jasmine provided a serene escape for our family of 6. It is conveniently located to Carmel and Big Sur, but as you drive down the tree-canopied drive, you feel that it is a hidden jewel. Sofanya, the owner, is so thoughtful. We arrived to fresh flowers, a bottle of wine, and granola bars for our morning hike the next day. It was truly all that we hoped for and more! The property is situated in a natural forest with excellent hiking trails. The international film festival, the lighthouse tour, and the 17 mile drive, and Hearst Castle were just some of the ways that we enjoyed our vacation.

Owner's Response: Cyndee Horn and Family were amazing guests....so vibrant and enthused about the house, the environment and they took full advantage of many things to do in the area. They left the house very clean...I was surprised since they had a full house! I would welcome them any time and truly hope for another visit....Sofanya
