“A peaceful retreat”
Reviewed 6 July 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.!

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 2 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

So you want to stay in Big Sur, but not sure were. This is a great option. You are certainly in the grandure of Big Sur, but its close enough to civilization that you don't have to travel half a day to go to diner. Just about 10 miles south of Carmel, and up the most amazing redwood forested road, the up,up,up to an awesome perch. You can be in Carmel, or Pfeifer in 20 min.
Also, the photos do not do the place justice. I've done a fair amount of traveling and I often go to some place that looked great in the picture, but turned out to be ratherr ordinary. This place looks a bit ordinary in the photos, but when you arrive, you'll see it has a spectacular feel.
I'd also like to put a shout out to the owners. Never saw them, but could tell they were thoughtful and contious of little details that can improve the experience.
