  • Absolutely perfect for family celebration

    "This is way overdue but I must write about our experience for Father's Day/60th birthday celebration. Our children range from 30 to 15 years of age). The drive up the mountain was a dirt road (all directions very clear) but I would advise going during daylight hours as it is very narrow and unlit. It is not rough enough for any special vehicle. Once I made the drive to the house (I want to say it takes about 15 minutes?), it was pretty easy to come and go but we really had little reason to leave. We usually visit places right on the ocean, but this was a wonderful surprise. The exceptional vistas from all directions were breathtaking. The photos are accurate, but there is so much more. The property is large and we all had our space for reading or playing around. We ate almost every meal out at a table under a lighted tree overlooking the ocean. There was a "plunge" pool adjacent that our son loved and we loved to cool our feet. Our older daughter got the younger girls up before dawn to snuggle in the outdoor bed and watch sunrise. Our older son watched the sunrise from the adjacent hot tub. I brought the coffee. It was magical. The hosts were very kind to back our car down the beautiful but steep driveway to the door.The property was very clean, very well maintained and incredibly unique. It was a "retreat" in every sense. All sorts of comfy places to sit outside and inside and lots of birds and wildlife. It was nice for the older kids to have separate "pod" areas to sleep, but everyone keep running to get everyone out together for something or the other. Our eldest daughter is a chef so her gift for the occasions was to compile all the ingredients and prepare meals in advance. We brought a large cooler and lined it with dry ice so even the frozen foods could be transferred to the kitchen safely. A few of appliances in the kitchen were not super modern but much more than adequate with far more amenities than we expected. The owners ware helpful above and beyond about everything but never intrusive. We texted photos to all our friends. Lots of unique/artistic places and beaches to visit in the vicinity but we had more fun at the estate. Loved this place and would recommend this for families with school age children and older. This place is not for the disabled (lots of stairs and multi levels). Very beautiful, very romantic and so very different. Many thanks to this interesting and kind couple for making our celebrations so special"

  • Magical canyon trailer for a woman traveling alone

    "The canyon and the trailer will instantly become your happy place. I read two novels, wrote letters, hiked down into the magical canyon, feel asleep each night to the sound of the stream and awoke to the chatter of the morning birds, feasted on the most delicious fresh eggs from the hens (otherwise known as the "Henriettas"). All this, and I was only there two nights, and one full day (NOT ENOUGH!!!). I wanted a place to get away -- to get completely away, from the demands of my job, from the constant buzzing of the internet and my phone. To find my own voice again away from the clutter of my city life. As a woman traveling alone, there might be concerns going to a remote cabin like this. There is nothing to worry about -- Richard is a kind and gracious host, as respectful of the privacy of his guests as he is of the wondrous nature around him. He really cares about his land and the creatures that inhabit it, and while I was one of those, I felt cared for too-- not directly per se, but through the touches Richard has done to build this place of respite. From showering outdoors while staring at the sparkling sea, to the best bathtub ever -- you are literally bathing on the edge of splendor. The trailer is a perfect space, cleanly and softly decorated, well equipped for cooking! It is all, in a word, magical. We hear that word too much -- the trailer on the cliff -- it really really is that. Pure magic. Now, when can I go back?"

  • Just beautiful

    "I know my stay was some time ago now and I could just have not written this review, but I was thinking about 2014 and this truly was a highlight. A wonderful place to retreat to with my family, in a magical setting. We loved the fairy garden, the warm and cozy cabin and all its amenities. Sofanya was a welcoming and friendly hostess who happily catered to our whims and shared her dinner table with us. Beautiful."

  • Memorable 60th birthday filled with coastal views and magnificent stars

    "Just returned from several nights at this amazing property! The roar of the ocean coupled with the solitude and serenity of being in this rustic cabin made for a fabulous weekend retreat. Basking in the Big Sur sunshine, watching birds, boats and waves during the daytime and awed by the nighttime stargazing, nothing could have been more perfect for the two of us."
