Big Sur Apartment


This unit is the first floor of our main house but is still very private and quiet, with its own entrances, full kitchen and bath. Like the cabin, it has the same warm feel with tinted plaster walls and arches. It is very spacious (600 sq ft) and cozy.  It opens onto a large grassy yard and has a nice ocean view. There is also a redwood garden room in which to sit and enjoy the view. Don't forget to look up at the night sky at the abundance of starlight away from city lights!

The Apartment can host up to 4 guests (1 bedroom & 1 pull out sofa).

Our Property

Our property is conveniently located along the Big Sur Coast halfway between Carmel and Big Sur Proper. We are about 3 miles up a beautiful redwood canyon from the coast. We sit atop a sunny ridge surrounded by an oak and redwood forest.  At 1100 ft in elevation, we are almost always above the summer fog, which creates unique views as it moves in and out of the canyon like slow tide. 

There are two main structures on the property. Facing west with an ocean view and a large grassy yard in front, our main house consists of a very spacious rental apartment on the first floor, while we occupy the top two floors.

The craftsman cabin (our other rental), is south facing and sits a good distance from the main house  with canyon/forest views. Between the two sits our wood-fired sauna.

This land is a place for quietude and solitude... a place to be replenished and calmed by the simple beauty of nature. We hope that our guests treat this as an opportunity to experience these wildlands with reverence, coming away refreshed in a way only nature can provide. So please respect this quiet for your sake as well as those who live here.


We are located just under 3 miles from one of the most beautiful stretches of the Big Sur coastline. Ideally located halfway between the Monterey Peninsula and Big Sur Proper, follow the canyon road up through a primeval redwood forest to our sunny ridge. At 1,100 ft above the sea we are nearly always above the summer fog. The marine air predominates here creating a spring like climate nearly all year round........rarely too warm or too chilly.

This ridge is sparsely populated......the homes generally are 100 yds or more apart. It is very quiet and our property extends down into a deep canyon where we have begun a trail so that guests can enjoy a short walk from the cabin or the near future. The forest consists of mostly oak (many ancient) and some redwood.

There is so much to see and do along the Big Sur Coast and in the Monterey/Carmel area it is hard to list. Many great hikes in the rugged mountains or gentle walks along the ocean bluffs, beautiful historical towns (Pacific Grove, Monterey, Carmel and beyond), some of the world's most beautiful beaches and golf courses, kayaking, biking, swimming, scuba diving and tourist attractions (like the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and Steinbeck's cannery row). One can find a bit of everything from complete solitude to world class entertainment, and always the world class views.


We now have a wood-fired sauna on the property, which is available for use to our guests as well as ourselves. The sauna has a large covered deck and sits in a quiet location, shaded beneath a giant and ancient live oak, with a beautiful forest view.

A perfect place to calm your spirit and feel the bounty of nature.

Attention birders: this is an ideal location for watching!
