Carmel-by-the-Sea Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Country House, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

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.

Great Redwood location, rustic, bohemian experience.

  • 3 of 5

This cabin is nestled in a Redwood grove that makes for a spectacular location! Owner was pleasent and informative. Property is as described in photos, a bohemian feel, and rustic. Loft bed was comfortable and clean. About what we expected, however, there was an odd smell inside the cabin that was difficult to overcome and became a buzz kill to the experience. Windows & door did not have screens, so it was difficult to open the place up to air out without acquiring bugs of the season. Could use some simple upgrades, as this location really has potential to be something amazing.

Rustic cabin in the woods, in a peaceful location close to Big Sur

  • 4 of 5

Rustic but well appointed little cabin, with everything we needed for a nice stay. The location is great, secluded and quiet, but still close to Big Sur. The house and trees are covered in twinkly lights, which were magical ; )

Though the cabin was mostly clean, it did have a heavy moldy/musty smell that was rough on my husband who has asthma and allergies. He basically couldn't breathe well inside the cabin.

The wood burning stove heated the cabin nicely and was cozy, and ready to go for us when we arrived. We were cold and got a little over zealous, putting too many logs in the fire, which made it difficult to sleep up in the loft, which got super hot. The bedroom, on the other hand, was rather cold with the door shut. We ended up sleeping on the futon in the living room.

There's a tv, which we didn't use, and wifi, which was suuuuper slow, but that was ok! We just ended up playing board games, which were stocked in the pantry.

Other than the asthma attacks and odor, we had a lovely stay!

Amazing place to get away

  • 5 of 5

We could not say more good things about this rental. Aaron and his family were great to rent from.

The cabin is a wooded get away with a modern kitchen. The deck and tables are made from beautifully milled redwood. Its just the right distance from Carmel and the entrance to big sur. Bixby bridge and Garrapata Beach are just minutes away. This is a amazing rental in a beautiful place.

Great little cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for two night with my wife, though honestly this place would be perfect for 4-6 people. There's a double bed in the loft, another in the small bedroom downstairs, and a futon couch. It actually has a really nice kitchen for the size and location - though I will mention that while they had some basics stocked (salt, pepper, ketchup, etc) there was no vegetable oil! Just a little weird lol. We did have fun chopping our own firewood to use in the wood stove fireplace, which was also nice cause it got pretty cold at night and this was the only heat source. The place is beautiful though, wonderfully secluded and picturesque. You're basically out in the middle of the forest, and outside they have a patio and lawn area with enough seating for a little party and gas grill. I'd be happy to stay again, great place for just unplugging and relaxing in nature.

Quaint and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Property was well maintained and fun to explore on. Nice kitchen and outdoor grill and fire pit area. Great location for day trips south to Big Sur and north to Monterey. Would consider renting again if back in that area. THANKS

Cozy cabin in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great time staying at this vacation rental over the weekend. We cooked most of our meals and had an amazing sunset dinner at Rocky Point Restaurant just down the street. We enjoyed hanging out on the patio and in the yard - very relaxing. The cabin is in a great location, close to Carmel and Big Sur hiking trails. Highly recommended for a weekend get-away!
