Nestled in a beautiful coast redwood canyon located centrally between Big Sur and Carmel- just two miles from the ocean. Escape into and under a canopy of trees that are forever humbling. A five acre lot with plenty of room to explore natures beauty. Close to the cabin there is a real homesteading feel with fruit- citrus- and nut trees and wild berries.

We are a family of five- that were all born and raised in the canyon the listing is in. We want to share the unique environment and captivating views of the coast and redwood canyons we call home.
Aaron purchased this cabin in 2011
I don’t normally ever write reviews for anything but I felt compelled to after reading such negative comments from Carrin B. I recently stayed at “Casa Pequeño” (on the same property as the “country home” cabin) and really enjoyed my time there, it is a very comfortable and secluded little place where I felt at ease and at home. Due to the storms and road closures I spent a lot of time wandering the beautiful Redwood forest and garden that surrounds the cabins and relaxed on the deck admiring the view. I intend to visit Big Sur at a later date but for now I wasn’t at all disappointed about having to remain in the immediate vicinity because I was content with such a peaceful break.
I also spent some time with the owners who were extremely helpful and kind. They showed me around the larger “country home” cabin which I found delightful and hope to stay in at some point in the future.
Rented the small cabin for my daughter and her fiancé as a wedding gift on their wedding night and this cabin for my hubby and I and his sister from Minnesota. The wedding was set for a beach in Big Sir. I read the reviews about the stench in this cabin and was worried. Not only did it smell horribly, like a rotting corpse, a window was broken, the wood stove door latch was broken, four terrible towels were left, and two rolls of toilet paper for THREE nights. And the bedding was not as described and the place did not feel clean. The power went out around 7:00 am (and was off still at 5:30 pm) so we had looked at the breaker box and felt very unsafe with exposed wires and a missing panel, such a fire and safety hazard. My daughter and fiancé could not get to the beach due to a major storm and road closure on Highway 1 so 30 or so close family members came to the yard to bear witness in the pouring rain. The owner showed up shouting at everyone to leave and humiliated our entire family. He then illegally ejected us from his property, even the honeymooners.
The cottage is nice n cozy, on the small size to fit 6 people but its outdoor facilities are great with a large yard, 2 picnic tables and other amenities. We had a nice walk to the little trail they have, it's short but great for our little family with a toddler.
The host was very nice!
First, the good news. This is a charming little cabin in a beautiful setting. Now, the bad news. There is an overpowering odor that I can only assume is related to sewage. It permeated our clothing. I could never stay here again unless that problem is addressed.
the property is situated in a beautiful setting. the actual cabin is tiny... 2 to 4 people max. furniture is old and uncomfortable. the kitchen needs a lot of basic stuff. takes 15 mins for the tiny coffee maker to brew. no microwave. the cabin had a strange mildew odor...basically, it needs a lot of work because overall, it's pretty dirty and needs a lot of upgrading...or maybe just a complete detailed cleaning. we realize we're not at the Belaggio in Vegas... but a little pride of ownership will change this from a 2 star to a 5 star. won't be back... i've rented dozens of cabins around the west coast and this was definitely on the bottom of my list.
Cool little place that was recently refinished. The kitchen and bathroom are beautiful and the sleeping arrangements were very comfortable. I would recommend getting to the property before sunset as there is minimal lightening in the area under the tree canopy. The only down side I saw to the property was that it smelled like mildew so we kept the windows and door open as much as possible. The wifi connection wasn't strong enough to facilitate any internet time (which I liked!)- but I wouldn't go in thinking that the connection is reliable.
Monterey Bay Aquarium .We are located in an area with excellent access to beaches,hiking trails and any activity to get close to nature, with having all the comforts of an inviting cabin to relax in.
