Big Sur, California
This is a secluded gem of a cabin with craftsman touches in a very lovely setting. It sits in a private corner of the property with magical filtered light through the oak and redwood forest. South facing with a beautiful mountain/canyon view it is very spacious (aprox 600sf) with the tinted plaster walls and arches giving it a very warm, old world feel. The quaint little bedroom is accessed by an outdoor covered staircase and has a spectacular view of the canyon. There is very nice deck space on three sides of the cabin, where one can sit in sun or shade and enjoy the abundant bird life or enjoy the views while soaking in the clawfoot tub that sits in our newly added redwood gardenroom. Deer are commonly seen, with the occasional glimpse of a bobcat or fox.

If you are looking to unplug, switch off and get away from it all, this is the place. Stayed for three nights with my husband and two children, aged 5 and 7. Spent the days taking in the glorious views, relaxing in the sauna and sitting it the outside bathtub! The kids loved the little upstairs cabin bedroom. When you...

We were on a charity cycle ride from Los Angeles to Napa and Big Sur was a planned overnight stop. Instead of just booking a motel room, we went for Monica's cabin. It was fantastic - the cabin is high up in the canyon and incredibly peaceful. There is no light pollution, at hight just a beautiful canopy of stars....

What a beautiful place! The 2.5 mile trip up the mountain was worth getting to the cabin. Nature abounds in the peaceful spread of trees and shrubs. Great get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Thank you Monica for your hospitality.
