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.

UNFORGETTABLE AND UNIQUE!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I were thrilled and then sad upon leaving this wonderful place. We already miss it.
The drive up to the house is a little daunting but it would depend on each person if this is a negative. My wife grew apprehensive each time - but my daughter and I grew excited and felt like we were on a mysterious adventure climbing up into our little hideaway!

My wife then fell in love with the house, the peace, the fresh air and the serenity and mystery of the morning mist coming from the ocean and covering the redwoods while enjoying her coffee.
My daughter was thrilled at the wifi - while sitting by a warm fire while I played guitar softly.
If we lived here - we would feel like we had a secret that we hoped the world would never discover.
We cannot wait to return!

Visited Big Sur with my sons for a getaway prior to my youngest son's wedding. The cabin was the perfect spot to stay for hiking and exploring the beautiful coast.

GORGEOUS PROPERTY! VERY NICE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The winding drive through the redwood forest lets you know that you are escaping from it all.
The house itself is beautiful, wonderfully laid out, wonderfully decorated with the owner's antiques and personal touches.
We wish we could have been there more and explored the property a bit more, but for us it was perfect.

If you want to be close enough to enjoy Big Sur/Carmel/Monterey, but get away from it at the end of the day, and have a beer on the porch surrounded by redwoods, this is your place!

SECLUDED GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
A very nice home, with excellent amenities. The pleasant owners live very close by. It is relatively secluded, and has a somewhat difficult uphill access, but not prohibitive. Close to many great state parks, Carmel and Monterey.

AWESOME VALUE!

  • 4 of 5
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.

AN ISOLATED, QUIET, RESTFUL EXPERIENCE

  • 4 of 5
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.
