Big Sur cottage description

THE GALLERY HOUSE

Enjoy the beauty of Big Sur in this unique redwood, rock & glass oceanfront cliff-side home, that is embraced by tall cypress and Monterey pines, on a gently sloping rolling green lawn to the Pacific’s edge. A sanctuary by the sea.

This home consists of a living/dining room, kitchen, one bedroom and a bathroom with shower & dressing room attached. The bedroom is a perfect couples romantic getaway for 2, with its queen size bed and ocean view, or use the single size sofa bed in the living room and the queen bed in the bedroom for 2 friends.

Relax by the fire, enjoy the chaise lounges on the sun-drenched southwest facing stone patio with fantastic ocean views. We also are just over a mile away from the famed Esalen Institute for hot springs bathing, workshops, and their world renowned massage treatments. Enjoy the many galleries, shops & cafes nearby.

Unplug from the cell phone and the computer and simply relax, renew, reflect and retreat in this stunning location in Big Sur with nearby hiking trails, galleries and fine dining for your enjoyment. A perfect place for a personal retreat, meditating, practicing yoga, reading, creating art, writing poetry or allowing your next book to flow through you.

Or perhaps you will want to just unwind in nature enjoying the dolphins dancing off the coast or the seasonal passage of the whales. Sit on the bench at the cliff edge and delight in the sea otters playing below as the hawks and often condors soar high above.

Spend time with your sweetheart in a special place for just the two of you. Come renew your love in the perfect romantic anniversary spot. Reconnect with an old friend in our natural environment. Or perhaps you just need time alone, away from it all in a place of great beauty.

On your way here, enjoy the drive on beautiful Highway One with it's scenic turnouts, beaches and state parks along the way . We suggest you stop in the lovely 2 small towns in either direction, that's Carmel or Cambria, to shop for groceries and gas before driving down or up the coast, as Big Sur has only a few places for these, and you will want to stock up before your trip.

Owned by 2 artists & meditators, the energy here is very inspiring for artists, writers, poets, meditators, couples or friends, as mentioned above. This land was considered a sacred site by the ancient Esselen Indian tribe, and we ask that you honor the feeling of this land as a wonderful sanctuary retreat.

The house rents for $300 per night. Weekly rate is $2000 for 2 adults only, please no smoking anywhere on this property or in the cottage and no pets. TOT Tax & cleaning fee apply. See more details in the rate section of this listing.

WE DO NOT USE THE ON-LINE CALENDAR, so please call us to inquire about your dates and to arrange your booking as we prefer to screen and connect with our guests and meet you first by phone. At the time of booking we will ask for your personal registration information. Then after receiving your check we will give you directions, and confirm your reservation.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1991

                  About the owner: We are 2 artists living and working in Big Sur for nearly 40 years. We teach workshops at nearby Esalen Institute in art, photography, dance, meditation and inspiring intuition. We both exhibit our art in local Big Sur & Carmel galleries, and are in museum and private collections worldwide.

                  Why the Owner Chose Big Sur:
                  There is no other place like Big Sur in the world, with it's breathtaking beauty & it's natural environment. We have some of the worlds greatest & most inspiring teachers, thinkers, artists, writers, poets and illuminaries living here or who have lived here or passed through. The local people, like a tribe of creative individuals, really know how to live life as human 'beings', rather than human doings. The land calls to us in her quiet spiritual whispers, where One can slow down and appreciate the simplicity of just being. We feel blessed everyday and are so very grateful to own property here in God's most magnificent creation!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  It's all been said above, just leave the world behind and find a sanctuary for the soul here in an environment of a beauty that is beyond words.
