About Aaron

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

Why Aaron chose Central Coast California

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 a bonus of this cabin is it is on a paved road.The cabin is far enough off the road not to see any cars.

Perfect for glamping!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little cabin for 2 people wanting to go glamping! The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed a warm bath under the stars. The cabin is clean and has a cute area to relax in the back of the property. It was clean, well located, quiet and peaceful. Absolutely perfect!

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

A sweet cabin with all the amenities we needed. Excellent location, quiet and the outdoor tub and shower were a nice touch. The bed can really use a rail, but other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Directions provided were spot on.

Exactly as described

Lovely little get away. Tub and shower were delicious. Comfy bed and kitchen. Bring extra padding for the futon couch - it's a bit hard.

Nothing Luxurious to be Found.

  • 1 of 5

We booked rental #428255 from Aaron on Home Away Website for a 2 night stay. Unfortunately we did not find the property as the pictures showed. The property was extremely far from Carmel by the Sea which we thought we were booking and the turn off to the property was another mile or so on a very narrow road with no lights and was extremely scary for a night time drive. When we finely found the place we were instructed to park in a certain area which was just a dirt pull off from the road, because it had been raining my husband was afraid to park there as it was muddy and deep and was afraid we wouldn't be able to get the car out of the mud the next day. Then at this muddy little pull off there was a wheel barrel and we were told to use it to lug our belongs up a little gravel path which turned out to be all up hill and a much farther distance then was advertised. We would have had to make half a dozen trips back and forth to get our 2 night stay worth of stuff and two dogs and then the same thing when time to pack up.

Also as advertised we were expecting a luxury one bedroom cabin with all the amenities (WiFi etc.) The cabin was a tiny square room and far from luxurious. There was no way we would fit with 2 dogs and all our things. I tried to call the owner but turned out there was no cellphone signal let alone WiFi. My husband said there was no way we could stay there so we disappointingly made the trip back to our car to drive all the way back home. So much for the birthday weekend :(

We never heard back from Aaron so when I got home I sent him an email inquiring if he had gotten my call. Again we never got a response which to us felt worse then all the above complaints. We never had this experience with any of the owners we've come in contact with all were very friendly and accommodating and actually going overboard for us. One phone call or email back to us would have made all the difference in the world as to how we feel right now. We never heard back from him at all until I filed a complaint with HomeAway asking also if there was a possibility of a refund. They were very helpful and said they would get right on it. After they contacted the Owner we got an email back from him refunding less then half of what we paid stating we never made it to the property on the day of arrival which was simply not accurate. All in all, not a very good experience and certainly not an expected one.

Beautiful, secluded, and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Came here at night because I worked in the morning, knew it would be dark so I brought a flashlight to find the path up to the cabin. It was hard bringing up my rolling suitcase because the path is dirt and gravel, but we managed well enough. The first night we were bummed because there was no internet and we wanted to cuddle up around my laptop to watch some netflix. However, the next day my boyfriend found the router... outside in a little closet on the side of the cabin. Nnnnoooo clue why it was out there. Anyways, brought it in, hooked it up and was working good. (But we really only needed it for night time after coming back from our daytime adventures around Monterey and Carmel). The cabin is very cute and homey. Be aware the bed is right under the angled ceiling so on the right side of the bed, be careful not to bang your head. Like my boyfriend did a couple of times. (It was funny). The bath was greaaattt!! Loved taking a bath outside. Dont worry about the color of the water! (Its a little yellow, but the water is fine) I would also recommend bringing bathbombs!! My boyfriend did, made the bath even better. And dont worry about other people seeing you, the cabin is secluded. My boyfriend and I want to go back so bad and soon. We didnt want to leave, we both loved it so much.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed last weekend and a last minute booking. It was great! Really private and quiet, perfect for two people looking to check out and relax. The outside bath was such a great addition. Perfect for our weekend getaway.
