"My wife and I got married in Big Sur and we could not wait to come back and enjoy the peaceful, quiet of this West Coast paradise. Belinda, the owner, was quick to respond to our request. We arrived to find a doe and her two fawns grazing in the yard. We found that they come to feed every sunrise and sunset. The small cottage has great views of the coast, particularly in this little nook where you can gaze out the window at an ocean and rolling landscape. This nook can be a bed, but we just sat together and read and wrote about our Big Sur experiences. The best thing about this place is the LOCATION. Its located within 3-4 miles of all the Big Sur restaurants and a bakery, so you get both scenery and convenience. What we did not realize was the close proximity of Pfeiffer Beach (often listed as one of California's top 10 beaches), normally you pay $10 for limited parking, but we walked down from the cottage in the early morning and beat the crowds and did some yoga on the beach. Similar to most places down there, no A/C in the place, but open all the windows and turn on the ceiling fans at night and let the coastal Big Sur winds cool you down. One of our best weekend vacations ever! Enjoy Belinda's place. By the way I asked why she does not have any reviews, and she rents mostly to friends/family."

"Lovely vacation home, very well located between the coast and the hills, with excellent views. The home also is very well equipped with anything a renter might need. Great hiking and shore walking very near by. Highly recommended."

"The Little Gem is a beautiful, immaculate setting for a get away. Andrew and Brianne are very welcoming hosts and are willing to offer suggestions for places to go/things to do/places to eat, but they also offer you plenty of privacy. The cottage has everything that you need for a relaxing stay, with a very functional kitchenette, breakfast nook, comfortable bed, beautiful sun-filled bathroom, wood stove, and lots of outdoor space (a private deck and succulent garden in addition to the shared terrace at the main house and walking trails with hammocks and tables). Just bring sunscreen and a book and you'll be very happy. (Quick, easy access to Big Sur beaches and hikes as well as the towns of Carmel-by-the-Sea, Monterey, etc. Absolutely stunning setting.)"

"The Gallery House cradled us in its arms the moment we entered. A place of serenity and beauty surrounded us all week as we breathed in the fragrance of flowers and ocean. The duality of stillness and ocean waves crashing the rocks allowed us to enjoy reading and music, while quiet reflection was broken only by the gentle barking of otters. Glorious sunsets paved the way for moonglow reflected on the water as the night sky twinkled with stars. Laying in bed and viewing this nightly show was breathtaking. The sacredness of Big Sur at the Gallery House was magical and mystical. Our memories will have to suffice until we return once again! Our deepest thanks to Cynthia and Daniel, who are the stewards of this "heaven on earth".....for allowing others to share in this wondrous place."
