  • Wonderful restful and beautiful weekend

    "I rented the cottage as a surprise for my spouse for his 60th birthday. He was so pleased when we arrived and we looked around the beautiful grounds and inside the lovely and VERY clean cottage. The kitchen was nicely outfitted so we had no trouble preparing meals. The hammock was a big hit and the hot tub a wonderful luxury. We loved going to Mill Creek for the hike we had heard about. Well worth the slight trouble to get a permit. Very beautiful spot. We will back again very soon!"

  • We Didn't Want To Leave!

    "My girlfriend and I stayed for 2 night's in Embree's cozy and charming Big Sur cabin on her beautifully terraced/gardened property overlooking the lush hills of the northern part of Big Sur. The views of the hills and ocean were stunning. Hawks soared constantly overhead and the windows of the cabin were frequented by large butterflies of many varieties. The quiet of the canyon was so peaceful and fulfilling. The cabin itself is the ideal, classic, authentic, quintessential Big Sur cozy hideaway (add on epic views!). Charming, clean, fresh and amply stocked with almost all of your needs. Crackling automatic fireplace to boot! The bed was wonderfully comfortable with clean, fresh linen (... which triggered a couple of unintended, but welcomed, late wake-ups!) A favorite aspect of the cabin for me was taking a bath while watching the hawks out of the large picturesque windows of the bathroom ... and the hot showers off the back porch of the cabin while looking across the vast landscape of the hills and canyon. Embree was an excellent host; she made us feel welcome and well cared for. She made sure that we knew how to come and go from her home out to the central attractions of Big Sur, and how to get safely back to the cabin ... she even provides hand-drawn maps to keep in your car during your stay! She made herself available to us if we needed her, though she allowed to have 100% privacy during our stay, which is also made possible through the arrangement of her property. Embree's cabin was also the perfect distance to the central Big Sur Area: Pfeiffer Big Sur, Deetjen's, Nepenthe, Point Sur, Bixby Bridge, etc. ... everything within 20 minutes or less. A highlight of our stay was also a massage experience that was found at "Namaste Therapuetic Bodyworks" which boasts all 5 star reviews. This wonderful place was located in the town of Big Sur: 46840 Hwy 1 Ste 9, Big Sur, CA 93920 right next to the Big Sur River Inn Thank You to Embree for surprising us with a gem of an experience at her wonderful cabin. We recommend it highly and we can't wait to come again! Noah and Gretchen, Santa Cruz, CA."

  • Lovely location, restful He

    "This home is in a lovely location just a mile from Pfeiffer beach. It is comfortably furnished and artfully decorated in a Japanese style. It has some nice touches such as plush robes and soft sheets on comfy beds. However, for the price it has some drawbacks. Number one is the fact that the only entrance to the house is through the master bathroom which also has no shower, just a tub. The layout is very open which made it hard for one of my teenage sons who was sleeping on the living room couch as the second bedroom only has a double bed. Though the kitchen is mostly well equipped it had some odd lacks such as only four plates. Lastly, the owner wasn't as helpful to out-of-towners as she might have been. She initially mixed up our reservation dates, was slow to respond to email and neglected to mention that the closest supermarket is 30 miles away in Carmel. All in all, we enjoyed our time but for the money would consider other options."
