House, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, 1 Yurt (accomodations for two guests))

Drive up to your own privately paved and gated driveway to a home with a full 365 degree view of redwood and oak ridges. Full sun all day long. Perfect for one or two people. Arrive, relax and take a dip in the hot tub viewing the beautiful mountain ridge as birds sing and red tailed hawks circle above.

Listen to the river flow as you sun bathe all day long without a soul to bother you. The deep ultimate luxury about my property is solitude and the stars at night.

Wonderful and Memorable Stay

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Mary's place for 2 nights during our road trip from San Diego to San Francisco. Mary is such a great host and she really made us feel welcomed and was very easy to communicate with for our check-in and our check-out. The home and location were perfect. We loved everything about the home, especially the woodwork and the way that the place was designed overall. It is so charming and unique. The hot tub was one of our favourite things to do, especially at night looking at the stars. We would both highly recommend this place and would love to be able to come back one day. Best place we have stayed together yet :)

Breathtaking stay in a cabin tucked away in the Santa Lucia mountain range

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I saw this place and couldn't believe it existed let alone that we could stay here. From the moment we arrive we loved everything about Big Sur Dream Home. We stayed here for 3 wonderful nights and we're dreaming of coming back soon. We would love to stay for at least a week (maybe two!). We were warmly welcomed upon our arrival and were pleasantly surprised with a bottle of wine and a rosemary Christmas tree on the gorgeous kitchen counter. We are so thankful how easygoing and thoughtful Mary is from when we booked up until when we left... and even the next day! She made us feel more than welcomed; she added a level of comfort that made us feel at home. Our stay was during the early winter days and we were extremely cozy and warm in the cabin; taking advantage of the fireplace and the jacuzzi was the best! Taking advantage of the outside shower was remarkable. We even loved the drive up and down the mountain road. It was a good feeling just knowing that it was just us on this intimate, secluded property. We slept in the loft the first night and then in the yurt the next two nights. Listening to the rain drops fall on the yurt was extremely soothing. We cooked up a meals, hiked along the coast, and pampered ourselves in the jacuzzi (often!). This was the perfect retreat that led up to our wedding day in Big Sur. We'll never forget the wonderful memories and the feeling of comfort we had at the Dream Home. We look forward to our next trip and creating new memories! Thank you Mary for sharing your wonderful dream home and big heart!

AMAZING, magical house in the trees

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just came back from spending 3 days and 2 nights at Mary's amazing house. I can't say enough about how special this place is. It is truly heaven on Earth!! Every detail about this property is pure love. We were spending our 25th anniversary there and I couldn't have asked for a more magical place to relax and connect. If I could give more stars I would, it was that great. We arrived to a sweet card and a bottle of wine from Mary. (side note for Mary: I would love to know the history about how the house was made because you can tell it was built with love and attention to every single part of the house, from doors to window frames, and all the eclectic pieces of art. WONDERFUL. We never tired of noticing another cool and unusual personal touch. Maybe a book with pics?) We brought food to cook and never got in our car the whole time. Not another soul or house around so you feel very private. We slept in the yurt one night, and the reading loft (that feels like you are in a tree house) the next. We loved the hot tub surrounded by the beautiful oak and pine trees. The bathroom that has floor to ceiling windows was beautiful. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need to cook wonderful meals. Our favorite spot was sitting outside under the full moon by the fireplace. There is even an outdoor shower overlooking the trees. There are birds and even deer that come and visit. Mary has a TV and videos but we didn't turn on electronics once while there. Just brought great music and danced under the moonlight. Feeling very blessed to have had the opportunity to experience this wonderful property. "Thank you Mary" is not enough. I will recommend to friends and family in the hopes that they too can experience this place. We will defiantly be returning in the near future. Jen and Craig

A Private Retreat in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at Mary's beautiful mountaintop property and would recommend it to anyone visiting the Big Sur/Carmel area. Located on Palo Colorado road, the property is nestled in a remote and private area. The property consists of three structures (main house, bathroom, & yurt), all connected by a wooden deck. Not only are the structures beautifully designed, but the property itself is amazing. Set on the side of a mountain, there are panoramic views in every direction. Plus, flowers adorn the property adding to the beauty. And there’s a private hot tub! Mary supplied everything we needed to make a perfect romantic getaway.

Just a heads up, the yurt has no heating, so it can get cold at night, but the down comforters ensured we could sleep in warm comfort. Likewise, the main house has a gas heater if needed. There is no cell reception and the internet can be used for only email and web browsing (no Netflix or video downloads), however, Mary has all the movie channels and a DVR to record any shows. We had such a wonderful visit and highly recommend this property.
