Very beautiful and secluded.

  • 4 of 5

Spent two nights here with my wife to bring in the new year. We had a lovely time all to ourselves. We were able to enjoy all of the amenities save for the outdoor fire place.

Owner's Response: Thank you Felix. I'm so happy to hear you both enjoyed the property, along with complete privacy. It was unfortunate you could not use the outdoor fireplace but due to the fire department, we were not allowed to use outdoor fireplaces because it's been so dry without rain. But, as of today, it has been pouring here in California and the outdoor fireplace can now be used. I hope you both will return again for another stay! Happy New Year to you and your family! Warm Regards, Mary Breen

Sunshine, stars, and seclusion: perfect place to retreat in Big Sur

  • 5 of 5

Mary was a wonderful host throughout the experience, and the dream home is truly dreamy. My partner and I were looking for a quiet place in a beautiful location where we could relax, read, soak, and explore nearby wonders. While we had two sleeping options--one in the lofted space in the cottage or in the cozy yurt--we chose the bed in the loft because of the wrap-around windows and skylight over the bed, which was fantastic during the one evening it rained. We quickly found a retreaters routine of slow mornings with hot tubbing and reading in the lounger on the deck, followed by afternoons exploring various hiking spots and galleries in Big Sur, sunsets on gorgeous beaches, and evenings cooking delicious meals with wine and stars. Our 5-night stay was a much-needed retreat from a busy fall for us, and while we were sad to leave, we are still enjoying the benefits of gifting ourselves with this time away. It's no wonder to us why Mary's place is regularly booked and so adored. Go see for yourself.

Relax! Recharge! Renew in Big Sur!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway to truly relax and recharge. My husband and I were seeking time away to do just that...and this quiet getaway in the midst of Big Sur beauty was exactly what we needed. We loved being right in the middle of nature...watching the birds and gazing at the stars at night. We enjoyed the indoor fireplace in the morning and loved relaxing in the hot tub after a hike. We never left this retreat during our two night stay and simply enjoyed the simplicity of it all. We especially loved sleeping in the yurt and caught a glimpse of the moon peaking through the top...what a treat! Thank you Mary for all the little touches to making this getaway truly that!

This is also how I feel about my property in just enjoying the peace, serenity and privacy on the property, which is what many people don't often get to experience. I hope you both will return again soon! I hope you'll return again in the near future! Happy Holidays!

Big Sur Clamping at it's best!!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved this property from the moment we set eyes on it. I don't think its for everyone, but for those that want to unplug and enjoy Big Sur in it's truest form you'll love it.

We enjoyed our hike at the end of the road, up the fire trail, you can hike for miles and miles.

The bed in the yurt was so comfortable and the outdoor fire place was so very special.

We enjoyed the outdoor shower and hot tub very much.

Mary thank you for being a perfect hostess!!!

Wonderful and Memorable Stay

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Mary's place for 2 nights during our road trip from San Diego to San Francisco. Mary is such a great host and she really made us feel welcomed and was very easy to communicate with for our check-in and our check-out. The home and location were perfect. We loved everything about the home, especially the woodwork and the way that the place was designed overall. It is so charming and unique. The hot tub was one of our favourite things to do, especially at night looking at the stars. We would both highly recommend this place and would love to be able to come back one day. Best place we have stayed together yet :)

You both have such a wonderful spirit, this is why I enjoy renting my home and meeting wonderful people like you. Sincerely, Mary Breen P.S. I was happy to hear you hiked one of my favorite hiking trails at Andrew Molera State Park. There are many more hiking trails you'll love on your next trip to Big Sur.
