LITTLEHOUSE IN THE REDWOODS

Big Sur House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2

Only god can make a tree. Probably because it's so hard to get the bark on. Woody Allen.

Sweet dreams are made of this...

Who am I to disagree?

Travel the world and the seven seas,

Everybody's looking for something.

The Eurythmics

The Littlehouse is located less than 10 minutes off of Highway One, and is accessible by a good road in all seasons. It is situated in a redwood forest in a canyon along a tumbling stream. Pleasantly isolated, it enjoys sunny days and cool nights. Its amenities, delightful furnishings, full kitchen, gas fireplace, luxurious bed and bath, generous closet area, private deck, are appropriate for either short or long term visits. Coastal and forest hiking trails and scenic beaches are nearby. Carmel with its delightful shops and many restaurants is a short drive away as is the Big Sur Village, Nepenthe and Pfeiffer Beach . Simply a delight.

Marketing these days is too much with us. Flowery modifiers, lyrically poetic descriptions, vivid adjectives wash over us all day, everyday. I can't take it. Just know that the LittleHouse is a special lodging in a beautiful place.

Perfect Getaway at the Perfect Littlehouse

Littlehouse in the Redwoods was every bit as perfect as described in the listing and more! The house is beautiful, modern and very well-appointed. We chose to eat our dinners in and had everything we needed - from pots/pans, utensils, cooking oils, spices, etc. The scenery is gorgeous and really felt like we had our own little piece of heaven in the Redwoods for the weekend.

The owners are very accommodating (but also respectful of your privacy) and a great resource for suggestions on what to do in the area (dining out, hiking, shopping, etc.). They even supply you with a welcome binder with lots of information on activities in the area as well as the makings for a very satisfying breakfast for the next day. How great is that?!

What a wonderful way to decompress for a weekend with enough nearby to do as much or as little as you wish. I only wish we had stayed a couple more days. We will definitely return and would definitely recommend Littlehouse to anyone who is looking for a relaxing stay in the Big Sur/Carmel area.

Beautiful Retreat

Before we arrived at the Littlehouse for the first portion of our Honeymoon the owners were supremely accomodating with directions and recommendations in the area. The house is beautiful and very well maintained. The owners were both generous (wine, breakfast items and even a special bottle of champagne to celebrate our wedding were provided) and respectful of privacy. They gave us everything we needed including freedom to roam. If you are looking for a quiet retreat, I can think of few places better. The winding portion of Highway One that passes through Big Sur and Carmel is a beautiful drive and never seems to get old. The littlehouse is accessed via a small road that disappears into the canyon. It takes about 10 minutes to get from the house to the highway. You’re really tucked away so you get a real experience of both the ocean and the Red Woods. Don’t miss Nepenthe. From the house it’s probably a 30 minute drive toward Big Sur just past Pfeiffer Beach. Beautiful food and atmosphere. Go at sunset.

The perfect romantic getaway, away from everything, in a beautiful place all its own

We spent hours trying to figure out where to stay in Big Sur for our honeymoon, We knew it would only happen once so we really wanted to feel like we were both not overspending and also staying in a place that we would love to remember forever. And LittleHouse did not disappoint. Jerry was very welcoming from day 1 and they have built a perfect getaway. It's a little off hwy 1 (15 minute drive and some of that is a dirt road) and a little north of Big Sur proper, but its proximity to Rocky Point (where you should grab lunches at least. We had a lunch, a stop in for a glass of wine, and a dinner there) make it close to the luxury it feels you are bathing in while you are staying in. LittleHouse is seriously the nicest place for the money you could possibly find in Big Sur. Our only hesitation in writing our glowing review was that we want the availability to be open for ourselves for whenever we want! We are already planning out next trip and have had discussions about making it annual thing. And I have no doubt that we could never find anything better. We absolutely love Big Sur, but there just really isn't a lot of affordable luxury there. You either have Fernwood on the low end or Ventana and the Post Ranch Inn. The only thing close to price-wise is Glen Oaks, and all you get is a hotel room. Beyond simply cost, LittleHouse is just beautiful. It's the perfect use of space, and feels much larger than it is because of how efficiently it is laid out and designed. The furnishings are superb. The kitchen is perfect. It feels like home, except we were in the middle of a lush redwood forest with a nearby stream. It is a gorgeous place and the perfect place for a couple in love. Believe me, we took our choice of honeymoon destinations very very seriously and LittleHouse far exceeded the very high expectations we had set for it. It is true gem, I dare you to find a better deal in Big Sur. It's just not possible.

From the moment we stepped inside Littlehouse and I glimpsed a fresh, fragrant flower arrangement – clearly hand-picked and arranged with a loving hand – springing out of a vase just inside the door, I knew we had chosen our getaway wisely. Everything about this home-away-from-home has been executed with care, taste, and the needs of its visitors in mind. The owner-builder, Gary, is as open-hearted and interesting as his work might suggest: he makes 500 square feet feel like all you'll ever need in life. We didn't get to meet his wife, but her creative handiwork, too, is everywhere. The place is immaculate. From the cast iron pot of fresh eggs to the bowl of fruit and little jar of preserves, the breakfast provided was as pleasing to the eyes as it was delicious. The setting is breath-taking: you fall asleep in a fabulous bed to the murmuring song of a stream just outside the window, and wake up to a skylight view of towering redwoods. The surroundings are inspiring: You are close to winding rocky coastlines, beach and forest hikes, great restaurants just north or south of you, and you are about as far from urban stress as is possible. My boyfriend gave me a Big Sur long weekend as a birthday present last October. It took us ten months to get here, and little did I know he would wind up asking me to marry him here! I couldn't imagine a lovelier spot to make such a commitment, and hope to return for many years to come to celebrate together. I highly highly recommend this, but try to arrive during daylight – the final few miles to Littlehouse are deep in the forest, and with no cell service, and finding it can be tricky! Still, nothing worthwhile comes without some effort, and this place is truly a slice of heaven, well worth the trek.

Ideal for Canyon Lovers

After almost too much traveling this summer, this little tree house was the final summer destination... and as accommodations are concerned, the absolute best. Clean, organized, tasteful and masterfully built (by the owner). I rented two vacation rentals in France, both paled in comparison to the cleanliness, quality and attention to detail here. We had four days enjoying this perfect romantic spot for two. We wish the Littlehouse in the Redwoods was ours!
