We are a family of five that have lived in the canyon since 1973.We love to share the unique environment with visitors.
Aaron purchased this cabin in 2011
This property is close to both Big Sur and Carmel it is truly best of both worlds.Many of the VRBO'S in Big Sur are off dirt roads and bonus of this cabin is it is on a paved road.The cabin is far enough off the road not to see any cars.
Great place to visit, especially for the price.
A couple small teeny tiny issues that aren't necessarily deal breakers--
We couldn't get the heater to work and it was slightly colder inside than expected. The bed is about a foot too close to the ceiling and I bumped my noggin once. Haha. The knife they provided was so dull we could barely even cut up our vegetables to cook. And there are no instructions as to where to put the trash so if you're staying more than a day it could start to pile up on you. We just left it in tied bags upon leaving. Didn't know what else to do. And the cabin is fairly close to another cabin, so you can occasionally hear other people over there. The fridge also kept shutting off and on and by our last day there everything in the freezer had melted.
But let's face it, it is pretty isolated, absolutely beautiful, and a great price! The wifi did not work...but that was more a problem for my girlfriend than me. I was trying to get AWAY from wifi. The outdoor bathtub - amazing.
I will say, all the tiny little negatives - nothing is perfect - pale in comparison to what this place is. I love it and I will be back. I'm hoping to make it a regular spot to visit once or twice a year. It's way better than being in Big Sur proper where everything is so over crowded and busy - especially during a holiday. A quick drive to wherever you want to go.
Can't wait to return!
Oh...and try to find the wolf's den if you can. It's out back near the picnic tables - a large tree trunk with a living quarters inside - I want to know who used to live there! Some hippie in the 80s is what it looked like. There are even old dirty cassette tapes in there! Greatness!
We had a great two nights at this cabin. It was amazing to turn off of Highway one and the ocean straight into an amazing forest and to the cabin. Especially loved the outdoor patio and bathtub. Wish we could have stayed longer!
The location is unbeatable for the price. If you can book this and dont mind no cell service, no wifi, and outdoor shower/tub then this is an amazing find. Its location is perfect if you want to have quick access to many of the most beautiful parts of Big Sur. Went on a tons of hikes, surfed, and had some incredible dinners in Carmel.
approaching on a trail by foot made it all the more special. We had complete privacy and found everything we needed (except candles which we easily purchased nearby). The true gems are the trees, a personal picnic table in the redwood grove behind the cabin and the shower surrounded by beautiful jasmin vines. We also appreciated the blue tooth speaker!
Note that there is functionally no wifi or cell service.
This is sweet! You do have a bit of a walk to cart your stuff in, but it is a charming walk and ensures privacy from the lower rental. The outside tub sunk into the deck with short on other side of jasmine trellis was very lovely in mid May. I thoroughly enjoyed these being outside. At first I couldn't figure out how to get the water hot, so I called the owner, who responded very quickly, and explained you have to turn it on and off sometimes to get it to kick in. There was some issue with the router in the lower house, so I never did get internet or cell service, but that wasn't so bad, it added to the tranquility. I would like to see a small railing on the bed since it is in a loft-- I slept over in the corner because I didn't want to fall off, although I never fall off my bed at home which is only 2 feet from the floor. The back side of the house is the forest hillside with a beautiful slab of wood as a table. The beauty of staying here is that it is 1.8 miles from Highway 1, so you don't hear any of the traffic. Big Sur shops etcetera are about 15 miles south, but Rocky Point Restaurant is right near the entrance to this canyon road off hwy 1.
Had a great stay here and wanted to give 5 stars but a few things mentioned in many past reviews still exist and although the setting and cabin are pretty amazing and we feel lucky to have been able to stay there it has some issues to keep it from being Perfect. Just plan on rustic seclusion in the redwoods and you will be rewarded
The Big sur,Carmel and Monterey peninsula area is famous for its
wildlife and natural beauty.Some call Big sur the greatest meeting between land and sea.Carmel has beautiful white sand beaches and outstanding shopping.Monterey is known for the world famous Monterey bay aquarium,cannery row and storied past.
