Nestled in a beautiful coast redwood canyon located centrally between Big Sur and Carmel- just two miles from the ocean. Escape into and under a canopy of trees that are forever humbling. A five acre lot with plenty of room to explore natures beauty. Close to the cabin there is a real homesteading feel with fruit- citrus- and nut trees and wild berries.

Beautiful Comfy Forest house

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at this wonderful location with 6 people. It was great! Magical back patio setting with several little outdoor activities to enjoy in the fresh air. We just wish there was another mirror in the house, only one is in the bathroom, as we got ready to head out to our wedding in Big Sur. Great private site, highly recommended!

how do you score a negative 10?!

OMG this property should not be listed. I have contacted VRBO with my complaint and pictures. First, upon opening the door the smell of mold is strong and doesn't let up. There were places where you could see it coming through the plaster but looks like it had been painted over. It was not clean. There was an empty coke bottle laying around, a dirty napkin, and just generally not dusted, vacuumed, or clean. The longer we stayed, the more things went wrong. The internet doesn't work, there was a fire coming out of the oven when we turned it on -- very unsafe and the whole inside of the oven was black with soot. The futon was falling apart in the living room and there were no sheets for it. Then, the worst was when we got home Saturday night we opened the cabinet to put something in the garbage and there was a big rat! We totally freaked out and didn't open any of the cabinets from then until when we left the next morning. I found mouse droppings in several places. This property is really a health hazard and should not be rented. The only possible way it could have gotten good reviews is from this owner's friends. I'm hoping people reading this will take it to heart and not, like me, rely on a couple of the good reviews and book it.

Misleading photo as this is a cabin in the woods - but a nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

We thought there would actually be a view of the sea as the picture gave this impression - but this cabin is in the shady woods in a narrow canyon.

The cabin itself is nice, with a fireplace (necessary in July). Cosy living room and good kitchen.

Really comfortable only for 4 people as there are two beds. Guest should know that there is no cell phone coverage in the canyon.

Smelled like there was a dead animal in or under the house. Mouse droppings in closet under the stairs. We found a pile of dog food in the oven as if an animal was nesting and storing its food there.

Very nice place... Perfect for our trip.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was exactly as described and were looking for. Our family of 5 slept comfortably in the cabin, and it was great for our needs and vacation. Seeing redwoods was on our kids' bucket list, and to be sleeping and hiking among them was perfect. The kitchen and outdoor fire were a nice touch so we could eat at the cabin when needed. No smell as other reviews described. Thanks to the owners for a very memorable vacation.

Looking forward to returning.

I don’t normally ever write reviews for anything but I felt compelled to after reading such negative comments from Carrin B. I recently stayed at “Casa Pequeño” (on the same property as the “country home” cabin) and really enjoyed my time there, it is a very comfortable and secluded little place where I felt at ease and at home. Due to the storms and road closures I spent a lot of time wandering the beautiful Redwood forest and garden that surrounds the cabins and relaxed on the deck admiring the view. I intend to visit Big Sur at a later date but for now I wasn’t at all disappointed about having to remain in the immediate vicinity because I was content with such a peaceful break.

I also spent some time with the owners who were extremely helpful and kind. They showed me around the larger “country home” cabin which I found delightful and hope to stay in at some point in the future.
