Big Sur cottage description

This Warm, Cozy Vintage Trailer - a 1962 Pathfinder - will take you back in time. If you are adventurous but still enjoy the amenities of city life - you'll be right at home here. French press & good coffee, high thread count sheets, a pantry stocked with all the essentials and superb bathtub with stunning view will smooth your transition from city distraction to country peaceful.

I live OFF GRID and only get messages a few times a day, especially if I have guests - roughly morning noon and afternoon/ evening, so I may seem hard to reach if you don't know that....your patience is greatly appreciated. Check this- it's not the Hyatt and no-one staffs the desk because there isn't one.

This 1962 Pathfinder Trailer was beautifully maintained and has been gently handled. If you are looking for a unique romantic getaway - this place is it. 54 acres of secluded Big Sur beauty. The site is completely private ( and boy howdy do I mean PRIVATE! ) - your view is of the ocean and canyon and ridges. Hike the ridges and canyons, or actually RELAX unmolested by the digital world, in incredible Natural beauty and quietude. Some folks appreciate staying here while doing workshops at Esalen, my place being removed from the hurly-burly while still allowing easy access to their property. I am finding that folks catch up on sleep here, sometimes clocking a good ten plus hours of deep and unmolested restful rejuvenating sleep. I've got Fuchsias planted just outside the window, so that from first light there are hummingbirds a few inches from your head; doesn't mean you need to wake up, just that beauty is happening....

• Secluded - Quiet - Private
• Ocean & Mountain Views
• Located Across from Esalen
• Cast iron tub+outdoor shower with ocean view.
• Cascading creek lulls you to sleep.
• Pet, Kid & Alternative Lifestyle Friendly
• Minutes to Beach, Post Office, HWY One / Carmel / Monterey
• Star Gazing. Zero light pollution

You can find more pics on FBook by looking for Big Sur Cabin Renal.

This Vintage Trailer has been lovingly maintained - the original tiny bathroom has been removed and a spacious and luxurious Private Bath House a few paces away has been erected and outfitted with a standard toilet, big cast iron clawfoot tub (fits two!), outdoor shower, and redwood deck. Ahhhhh. All with Ocean and Mountain Views.

This location is also home to Big Sur Old Growth - a custom sawmill operation specializing in salvage harvest Old Growth Redwood. Check out the website for more info. The trailer is used for lumber buyers and other guests. When the trailer is not in use it is available to rent.

This property is private and completely and deliberately OFF THE GRID.

'Big Sur Cabin Rental' is a GREEN vacation rental property. Although it is completely Off the Grid, you can still enjoy every amenity that makes traveling a pleasure. I clean with simple non-chemical products. I line dry the linens and they smell fresh and wonderful. All my end is powered by solar, my computer, cel phone, everything. 21 years now...it's not hard, really.

Solar and propane powers the systems that give you electricity for charging your Ipod and grinding your coffee - cooking a meal and taking a hot bath or shower and heating the Trailer. It's clean, warm, dry and lovingly cared for. The kitchen is well equipped with quality cooking equipment like good, sharp knives and cast iron.I like to cook and have set it up for someone who also likes to cook.The pantry is well stocked with all the essentials, olive oils, sea salt, Balsamic and other vinegars, teas, organic Basmati rice, extra dark French roast coffee and coffee press, wine glasses etc...everything you'll need for a romantic getaway. Enjoy the night stars while cozying up in the high thread count sheets then in the morning relax to fresh ground coffee and fresh laid eggs ( I keep chickens and will share the eggs with you) and take in the beautiful OCEAN VIEW! Head over to my website for more photos.

Your paypal deposit will secure your reservation.
Namaste.

                While this venue mostly appeals to couples and single travelers, many well behaved children have enjoyed the wild here. Great place to bring a kid with a lot of energy. Hiking possibilities are endless. Please also know also that this is the WILD. And there is real wildlife, spiders, snakes, coyote, mountain lions etc. Hazards any parent would want to investigate before committing. ...moreless

              Other Amenities

                  • Across the street from Esalen, this property offers the best Ocean views from a Mountain setting. It's a quick 10-15 minute walk down the hill to the baths at Esalen. This is the real wilderness down here - but if you can mentally muscle through it - I promise you will be rewarded with unparalleled beauty. Visit my website for more pics....moreless
