Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We came on our "babymoon" before our 5th child is born next month. We had an amazing relaxing time and loved the cabin. The drive up the mountain is fascinating and the amenities of Bella Cabina were wonderful. We ventured out for a few new sites (17 mile drive, photographing along the coast, and dinner at Flaherty's, Yum) but mostly we played games, ate fancy home cooked meals, and watched the endless beauty of the fog and ocean view. It was beautiful, rain or shine! Many happy memories, thank you!

Tranquil and prefect for a beautiful getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the prefect little gem hidden up in the hills surrounded by trees and fresh air. The drive through the redwoods to get there was beautiful. The location of this place was great because it was far enough away from the main highway, but close enough to get to Big Sur and Carmel by the sea very easily. It was extremely clean and cozy, and the view from the deck outside was stunning to wake up to in the morning. My husband especially loved lighting fires in the old stove which kept us warm all night. It was the prefect size for us, and it was so nice being able to make breakfast in the morning, sipping on hot chocolate while viewing the birds flying by outdoors. We would definitely return some day for another peaceful weekend.

Excellent Stay

We had a fantastic time at Bella Cabina. The view is breathtaking. The unit was very clean and had all of the amenities needed for a stay. The location is great for exploring the northern aspect of Big Sur or Carmel. We would definitely rent here again.

Staying at Bella Cabina was amazing. Comfortable, clean, all the amenities of home. The view is breathtaking morning or night. No reason to leave, but close to both Big Sur, Carmel, and Monterey if you want to explore. Would recommend to one and all. Best vacation in years! Thank you!
