About the property

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.

Misleading photo as this is a cabin in the woods - but a nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

We thought there would actually be a view of the sea as the picture gave this impression - but this cabin is in the shady woods in a narrow canyon.

The cabin itself is nice, with a fireplace (necessary in July). Cosy living room and good kitchen.

Really comfortable only for 4 people as there are two beds. Guest should know that there is no cell phone coverage in the canyon.

Smelled like there was a dead animal in or under the house. Mouse droppings in closet under the stairs. We found a pile of dog food in the oven as if an animal was nesting and storing its food there.

Very nice place... Perfect for our trip.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was exactly as described and were looking for. Our family of 5 slept comfortably in the cabin, and it was great for our needs and vacation. Seeing redwoods was on our kids' bucket list, and to be sleeping and hiking among them was perfect. The kitchen and outdoor fire were a nice touch so we could eat at the cabin when needed. No smell as other reviews described. Thanks to the owners for a very memorable vacation.

Looking forward to returning.

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.

Beyond awful

  • 1 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: We take our reviews very serious,but this review is outrageous and vindictive.These people are spiteful and malicious because we did not give them a refund after we asked them to leave.They decided to have an UNAUTHORIZED WEDDING on the property.We spoke to VRBO and they said it was our choice weather or not to refund them.We decide not because they left behind a pile of trash a large plastic canopy and rearranged the furniture,spilled juice or something on the bed. If our home is so awful,dirty and smelled of a"rotting corpse"then why would you decide to host a wedding? The entire community lost power that storm and the breaker box has professional conduit wires coming from the top,there is no exposed wiring.There is no broken window,yes the handle is broken on the stove but you can still open it.I myself washed all the linens and cleaned the cabin from top to bottom. The house has a musty smell but its not mold or anything dead,the house is in a redwood forest and thats the smell of woods! If there is ever not enough Tp a simple phone call is all it takes!!We were not expecting 30 people in our home! We live in the same community so its very easy to bring people whatever they need. That day I drove by the cabin and saw 20 to 30 cars parked in the driveway,you can imagine the shock?I asked around for the renter and nobody would take responsibility this was very annoying,finally someone spoke up.There is a beach 3 miles from the cabin that was accesible at the time.I cant figure out why you would want to hold a wedding in cabin without power,without permission,smells like a "rotting corpse",unclean and "unsafe"...huh

Small cottage in the great outdoors

  • 4 of 5

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!
