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.

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.

Excellent Little Cabin

  • 5 of 5

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” and really enjoyed my time there, it is a very comfortable and quiet 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 cabin 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.

Beyond awful

  • 1 of 5

Rented this cabin for my daughter and her fiancé as a wedding gift on their wedding night and the house 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 the main house 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 horrific and the place was filthy. The power went out at 7:00 am (and was off still at 5:30 pm) so we had looked at the breaker box and what a scary sight that was, such a fire and safety hazard. My daughter and fiancé could not get to the beach due to a major storm and road closeure 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 cursing obscenities and humiliated our entire family. He then illegally ejected us from his property, even the honeymooners. Despicable human being who is a slumlord on top of it. I was actually happy to get out of there, even packing up in the pitch dark with him lurking around was better than staying another night in that dump.

Owner's Response: This guest is being spiteful and malicious because we choose not to refund her after she thru an UNAUTHORIZED WEDDING on the property.They left behind trash and rearranged our main cabin.I was very angry and upset when i drove by the cabin to see 30 cars parked in the driveway. As one can see from previous reviews,everyone loves this little hide away. My family has been staying here since we've been unable to access our main home due to storm damage.We cleaned the homes thoroughly and laundered all linens before they're arrival,if there ever is a problem please call us,we live in the community.We are active participants in the community,and lived here a long time.We do not have the reputation for being "slum lords" or "despicable humans". I'm sorry these people made a bad choice in throwing an unauthorized wedding and had a bad experience but ,it was not enjoyable for me either!

I absolutely will be back. If you're going for minimal and isolated, this is it! Read the instructions and bring a flashlight (iPhone flashlight should work to get to the cabin the first time) if you travel at night, because the solar lights provide little to no lighting.

I couldn't be more pleased with this stay.

amazing cabin

  • 5 of 5

I came here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday.

This place was easy to find.

Very close to the beach and ocean view (literally less than 10 mins drive)

The cabin is deep into the wood and very private.

I had a great time.

Would recommend others.
