UNIQUE FAMILY HOME NESTLED IN THE REDWOODS WITH A VIEW

Big Sur House Rental Photos and Description

Two bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 4

This home sits on an 80 acre parcel that was homesteaded in 1913. The home itself was built in 1963 by our Grandparents using handhewn redwood beams that were harvested from the property. We are making this home available as a vacation rental. Relax in this peaceful setting as you listen to the year round creek. Stroll through the orchards and pick fresh oranges and apples. Read about our family history of those that braved the wild and wooly coast and made Big Sur their home for generations. The home is ideal as it is centrally located between Carmel and Big Sur. Play in Big Sur during the day and dine in world class restaurants in the evening in Monterey and Carmel. Because this home is located right off the main road year around access is no problem. The home has been recently updated yet still retains its original charm. Our online calendar is kept up to date so please check the calendar for availability.

Location, Location, Location:: The home is 3.9 miles from Highway 1 and is located on a ridgetop 1350 feet above the Pacific. The home offers beautiful views of the canyon and ocean and because of its location the home is generally above the fog lending itself to spectacular sunsets and sunny days while the coast can be covered in fog. Because of its central location it is a 30 minute drive south to to Big Sur along some of the most beautiful coastline in California and crosses the world famous Bixby Bridge. With so many activities to chose from in Big Sur your days will be filled. Want a romantic or indulgent dinner? Then a drive 30 minutes north to Carmel-By-The-Sea offers numerous restaurants with a wide variety to chose from with unique shops and numerous art gallerys as you stroll through its quaint town where Clint Eastwood once served as Mayor.

Nearby Activities:: Horse back ride at Andrew Molera State Park, hike the Los Padres National Forest on some of the most challenging trails. In Palo Colorado Canyon you can stroll along the redwood covered Mill Creek Redwood Preserve Trail or drive just four miles up the canyon to Botchers Gap where you have access to the Ventana Wilderness along the Skinner Ridge Trail. Golf at the world famous Pebble Beach Golf Links, wine taste in Carmel Valley, whale watch or kayack in the Monterey Bay or just stay home and enjoy the peace and relaxation that is the essence of Big Sur. Massage can be arranged right in the home.

Our Goal:: We are not in this to make a living, we are simply using the money to pay the taxes on the property to ensure that the legacy that our Great Grandparents left us will continue on for many generations to come, We have had many friends that have recommended their friends stay with us which gave us the idea of making this home available as a vacation rental. The upstairs bedroom has a queen sized bed, the downstairs bedroom has a queen sized bed and a double futon. We live nearby but your privacy will be our utmost concern.

Awesome value!

We stayed two nights at the location. Description of the listing was accurate. It was very clean and better than what we expected. My kids loved the fireplace and there was plenty of room for our family of four. Getting to the place was a little tricky but the owners gave us very clear directions and we did not get lost. The drive from 1 takes about 10 minutes and is on a narrow winding road. Overall we liked the place and have recommended it to some of our friends. We will be most likely back.

1. The description was accurate, but it didn't mention extra tax & cleaning fee charges
2. Photos accurate
3. Clean & well maintained, good amenities
4. Did not deliver entry information when promised, had to ask about reason for extra charges
5. Yes, would recommend
6. Just enjoy the scenery
7. Directions for finding were accurate, but it is a long drive up a narrow road which shouldn't be attempted at night.

A Perfectly Quiet Getaway

A ten minute drive through the woods brings you to this cozy house, which was in pristine condition upon arrival, and the surroundings are magnificent. The owners, Cheryl and Jake, despite fighting the ravenous Big Sur fire that week, were still receiving phone calls, helping us out, and even stopped by to drop off more fire wood for the nifty fire stove. Carmel is a mere 20 or so minutes away, but time doesn't matter up there. The drive along Highway 1 will leave you breathless and fully immersed in appreciative awe. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking to get away from the loud and at times obnoxious cityscape and venture deep into nature, where we all should go from time to time.

Cabin in the woods

The home was charming and very comfortable. The only problem was the water pressure was low, but that is to be expected with fresh spring water. The owners were very helpful and called to make sure everything was in order. They invited us to pick some apples and oranges which were delicious. Overall a great experience.

Very charming and close to nature!

We loved the house and its surroundings! I stayed with my in-laws, my husband and my two boys (10 & 9) and we did not want to leave. The boys and my husband enjoyed exploring the trails, the woods and feeling so close to nature. My husband fired the fireplace and stove every night while we sit in the living room talking and enjoying it!

The house is very comfortable and has all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay. The kitchen is spacious and the appliances are updated. It has pots, utensils, plates, glasses, kitchen towels, aluminum paper, cling wrap and cleaning supplies. The dishwasher was perfect. It has a 6-chair dining table from where we enjoyed a great view of the mountains and of two woodpeckers.

The upper room is a loft with a queen bed and 1/2 bath, very cozy. The lower room has a queen bed and a queen futon. The main bathroom is downstairs and it is very beautiful and updated with soft towels that make you feel you were in the best of the hotels.

The living room is nice and cozy with two big sofas that were perfect to take an afternoon nap! Loved the scrapbooks, old pictures and vintage items that are around the house. They made me felt connected with the family history and Big Sur.

They have a porch were my father in law practiced his trumpet and we enjoyed barbecuing in the deck and enjoying the meal in the picnic table with a beautiful view.

My kids picked oranges and apples from the trees for the first time in their lives and they will never forget that. Those were the best oranges I have had in years. The house is located deep in the forest, so I recommend you to get there in day light, because it can be intimidating at night....we got there at night but with Jake's specific instructions, we did not have a problem finding the house, but it is better to know to learn the way to the house during the day. Once you are in the #1 (Cabrillo Highway) it is very close to all the great spots of Big Sur. it is located north of Big Sur and south of Monterrey.

We are very please with the house since it was very comfortable, has all that we need and more. We are already planning to return next summer and we will stay a week at least. Totally worth it! Very private and cozy! I will recommend the house to all the adventurers' souls that what enjoy closeness to nature & want to disconnect!

I will publish a post about our adventure in Big Sur this week on my blog and it will include pics from the house. www.estilofamiliar.com

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the home! Next time you come back the peach trees and a few others should be bearing fruit.
