Temporary Notice: Please contact us for availability and last minute specials by the phone (220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.0.3.4.). VRBO has recently doubled fees, so please look for us on the cheaper A.I.R.b.n.b site searching google for “Big Sur-ene”. We also offer discounts for offline bookings that still include typical credit card guarantees and protections.
Keep in mind that there are less than 19 listings actually in Big Sur, even though most VRBO searches will show hundreds of rentals, most over 1 hr away.
This is a home away from home - it's the only one in the area with three separate private bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, washer/dryer, dishwasher, wifi, satellite t.v. and a hot tub available at this price. Additionally, our cabin has off road parking lot but is only about 100ft from the paved county road.
Many other rentals in our area are located on narrow muddy dirt roads that are very difficult to navigate and drive. From our location, you can wake up and take a nice walk down the county road amongst the amazing redwoods and creek.
Relax on the deck and listen to the solitude, while the creek babbles below - or sink into the private outdoor hot tub and look at the star-filled sky - or use the cabin as your home base as you enjoy easy access to all of the area's sites! Carmel is just 15 minutes away and Big Sur Proper is just a scenic 20 - 30 minutes away!
Quiet, private grounds - nestled in the redwoods with a babbling creek. Easy access on paved road, and a house full of amenities offer convenience, while peace and tranquility really invite you to unplug from the world.
This cabin comes complete with full kitchen, including gas range, dishwasher, full-sized refrigerator, Cuisinart coffeemaker, blender, dishes, cookware, utensils, etc. Home also comes with a washer/dryer. There is also an outdoor propane barbecue, and spa! Indoor and outdoor dining for up to 6.
One bedroom has a queen bed and private balcony, another has a queen bed and private deck. The third bedroom has 2 twin beds.
Television with satellite service, lots of DVDs, books and board games also available.
House Rules: Please see house rules below in exhibit A of rental agreement.
Note: Photo ID is required for check in. Signed rental agreement required. Check in is by appointment, between the hours of 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
See copy of agreement below with house rules in exhibit A and waiver of liability in exhibit B for preview:
Thanks, and have a great vacation!
