"What a marvelous destination for a 50th Anniversary!!! The Cabin is everything we had hoped it would be. Better than a cruise or Hawaii in our opinion. Friends smiled condescendingly when we told them that we had chosen an isolated cabin for our anniversary celebration. However, we have had the last laugh, and we would do it all over again.
The welcome package of wine and snacks was certainly a nice, warm touch, and it is much appreciated. The cabin was well-stocked with all the necessities for cooking the food that we had purchased, including the spice rack. We had every pot, pan and utensil needed as well. The furniture was very comfortable, as was the bedding. All equipment was in great working order. And when we experienced a slight problem with the spa, Gail was ready, willing and able to rectify the situation –even though she had had an exceptional long day at her day job. She is amazing!
We actually had planned to spend time away from the cabin to eat at Nepenthe and have an evening out, but the 180-degree views from the cabin surpassed any other place imaginable. So we stayed in and prepared our steaks on the patio with the BBQ. It probably exceeded anything that we would have ordered at a restaurant. And we were able to finish the evening counting the multitude of stars in the sky from the hot tub.
Carol and I have loved Big Sur from the first moment we saw it in 1967. We have frequently visited the area, but never have enjoyed it quite so much as we have this visit. We know that a few people have complained about the traversing the road to the cabin, however, we view it as a means to maintain privacy and serenity that would not be available otherwise. The cabin with its beautiful gardens and views provided us with a slice of Big Sur Heaven that we had longed to possess. Thank you, and we will definitely return."
