“Magic on the Mountain”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

To stay in this house, magic
To see the fog, the birds, the sunsets, magic

We actually cancelled some reservations we had made for dinner because we wanted to cook in this fabulous kitchen and watch the weather happen right in front of us.

This home was lovingly and artistically designed and we cannot wait to return!

“Died and gone to Heaven”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Thank you to CW and Ellen for creating this amazing place and we are so grateful to have enjoyed the space for three days. this rental is unique and each element has been so carefully and artistically designed; plus it has just a spectacular view, beautiful plantings, wonderful birds and I cannot decide whether I preferred watching the fog roll in or watching the glorious sunset.

“A peaceful retreat”
Reviewed July 5, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This is an incredible property - sitting high above the fog of Big Sur and providing striking views. It'n not a long way up the mountain to get to Bella Vista, but it's a peaceful retreat, far above the rest of the (already remote Big Sur) world.

The house is beautiful! Very well maintained property, great space, open & light.. (Bedrooms and bathrooms are large and clean.) But we spent all of our house time on the deck - great views. The studio space below is beautiful also.

CW & Ellen have though of everything! Well-stocked pantry and clean, large kitchen that's great to work in. Thankfully, no cell service this high up (not much in Big Sur in general) but a strong wifi connection is available at the house. Other great features: Gas grill, hammocks, washer/dryer, wood stove, TV with netflix & pandora (if you want to spend time inside!?)

Location is great too. Close to some of the best hiking in the area (Books & maps available in the house) and close to Carmel too.

We're all still raving & telling all of our friends about this wonderful place.!
