  • Nice Getaway

    "A lovely, secluded spot in Big Sur. Overall a great stay, but a few specifics: Pros -Nice décor—clearly a lot of thought and care has gone in to it -Plush towels, robes, & linens -Eclectic selection of books, music, movies, and games -Good location, quiet, ‘unplugged’ and private -Soaking tub and great shower water pressure (ahhh) -Pet friendly -New washer and dryer -Awesome toaster oven Cons -Awkward layout (as others have mentioned). Not so bad for one family, but wouldn’t work well for sharing with multiple families or grown children. Non-solid doors (slatted) and lots of hard floors also doesn’t give much sound privacy. -Firewood provided inside was so damp it was almost impossible to light, then when we finally got it going it popped and smoked terribly the whole time. -Some minor maintenance issues (burned out/missing lights, sticking drawers) and spots where things are showing their age -Steep driveway, we did slide a bit on the first attempt but then got the hang of it -Nowhere for trash/dog poop/diapers. We didn’t try calling the caretaker because it seemed so minor to bother someone on a weekend about."

  • Absolute tranquility

    "I thought long and hard about whether or not I should leave this review. Why?? Because I wanted to keep this gem all to myself. However, that wouldn't be fair to the owner and host who has done a remarkable job creating one of the best hideaways my husband and I have ever experienced. There are very few places in this world where you can actually just be with each other in nature with complete privacy. Richard has done an amazing job with this place. All our needs were met and the accomodations were steller. We woke to birds singing, whales breaching and the creek below. We hiked, lay in the sun, fed the chickens, drank wine with a backdrop of one of the best views I have seen since our last Kauai trip. The best was the double person tub that overlooked the ocean and the trees. We took bubble baths with our wine every night. My only complaint was that we eventually had to say goodbye and hit the asphalt jungle far too soon. Richard was incredibly kind. He brought us fresh eggs, apricots and even beer. His hiking trails are extremely well marked and the wading pools and mini waterfalls were incredible. It was simply one of the most memorable vacations we have ever had. We highly recommend this paradise and will go back again and again."

  • A stunning, unique experience

    "This property is amazing--6 acres of rugged coastline at the edge of the world. Between the sauna, outdoor tubs, staircase to the ocean, firepit, and constant breathtaking views there was always something for us to do. We cooked fantastic meals, drank fine wine, breathed the fresh air, and soaked it up--we never even left the property! Definitely coming back again soon."

  • Heaven on Earth!

    "There are truly no words to describe this property. I am always reluctant to book a home online without first seeing it in person. My daughter was getting married in Big Sur and I had never been to Northern California. Traveling from NJ was quite a trip, and I was hoping we would be happy at The Gallery House. The ride to Big Sur was amazing enough, I couldn't see how the beauty could be even greater. Then we pulled into the driveway and walked on back. Being this close to the vast and beautiful ocean was a dream come true. There are truly no words to even describe the peaceful feeling that remains with me still. As someone who lived in Hawaii, this home brought me the same inner peace that is indescribable. We spent little time in the house as we were only there for two nights and then the wedding, but every moment we were there was spent outside in one of the many nooks and crannies that were set up for viewing the sea. I finally saw hummingbirds, like a hundred of them, and my only disappointment was in not seeing a whale. Maybe next time! I sure tried! I have shown my "backyard" photos to my friends and no one can believe the beauty. We are hoping to go back one day and stay at the very same property. I have no idea why anyone would chose a hotel over this home. We were only there for 2 nights, but on the first night we were able to sit outside and view the stars, the milky way, and we saw many "shooting stars." All while listening to the beat of the gentle waves. Thank you Cynthia and Daniel, although we did not get to meet you, we loved the photography in the home which was clearly a part of you both and if we are ever fortunate to return, we will most definitely want to stay in your home again. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking in the Big Sur area. I am missing it as I type this. Truly heavenly."
