    Things to Do
    Additional Location Information
    Our property is perfectly located on Big Sur's north coast, atop a small mountain overlooking Palo Colorado Canyon and Pacific Ocean beyond. Heart Circle Mountain is conveniently located just 2.2 miles from Highway 1. Enjoy all that Big Sur has to offer, yet remain only a 15-minute drive north to Carmel, and a 15-minute drive south to Big Sur valley. Enjoy the best of both worlds, on the most scenic roads anywhere. No need to worry about dirt roads, as our retreats are located along our private paved road, which is traffic, mud and dust free, even in the winter.

    Without a doubt, you will leave Heart Circle Mountain with a unique piece of Big Sur in your heart.

We loved staying two nights at little gem. It is outfitted with everything you need. We loved the feeling of being remote, without actually being so far out. It's a very quiet and peaceful location, yet 5 minutes off Hwy 1. Only one thing I would ask the owners to consider changing is the frame for the mattress......the bed squeeks... more

We loved every minute of our stay at the "Little Gem" great location, gorgeous views, very clean and extremely well thought out. It felt away from it all, but at the same time easy to get back into beautiful Carmel and the Valley. The sense of peace and tranquility run through the entire property. The owners were very helpful with... more
