The space

This little jewel is up on Hoffman Hill Rd on the Jewel in the Forest property and the most secluded spot.

Perfect for anyone desiring a little more seclusion, whether for meditation, a writing retreat, a romantic getaway or just a very special rustic home in nature to come back to after hiking or town excursions.

This cozy little forest dwelling is lovely for fit or athletic people used to hiking as it is a short but steep climb to get to it. We will drive you up on arrival, but during your stay you'll be on foot.

You'll enjoy the sleeping alcove with an up close forest view, and the kitchenette is equipped with a 3-burner cooktop, min-fridge, coffee maker, toaster, and all dishes, pots/pans & cutlery. The semi-outdoor bathroom provides a forest view while showering!

You'll also find art supplies so that you can express your experience through painting. Art classes & "Essence Portraits" available by appointment with Sofanya.

Big Sur, California, United States · Joined in May 2012

I am so pleased to welcome guests to stay here at my "Jewel in the Forest" with choices for several very "glamorustic" magical houses and cottages. It is so rewarding to know that people can come here to stay for a vacation, business trip or even a retreat for healing and leave with wonderful peace and memories and a desire to come back!

I am an artist so Blessed to live and work in this paradise forest in between Big Sur and Carmel.
I'm inspired by the knowing that each of us are nature and not separate from it. This is the basis of my art and healing work. People often ask me what kind of art I make and the truth is "Life is the Art"!
I work in many mediums and love the exploration and discovery of art as a medium for the universe of knowledge to come through the paintings and sculpture. I have for many years enjoyed welcoming people from all over the world into my gallery & studio here on the "Jewel in the Forest" property. We also have a small area I call "Carabella's Theatre" where we hold seasonal gatherings, weddings, workshops etc. I am so pleased to welcome guests to stay here at my "Jewel in the Forest" with choices for several very "glamorustic" magical houses and cottages.
