What a magical place! This is a really incredible spot up in the mountains with complete privacy and the most breathtaking views. The house is quaint, the surrounding gardens are beautiful and property is very well kept. The house looks out to the mountains and the beach below. We hiked from the house down to the beach and back, not for the faint-hearted but our 7 and 10-year-olds did it with us without complaints. Our host Dave was very helpful and attentive, and made us feel very welcome. Our family of five had a wonderful time here and we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a very special experience.
Sadly at the last minute I had to cancel my trip to Dave's house but he was very accommodating and easy to work with. He made the cancellation process seamless and was easy to get in touch with. If the opportunity comes up again, I'll definitely look into this house to check availability.
Stunning views, gorgeous surroundings and a cozy home in Big Sur! The photos in the listing don't do it justice. The home is on a beautiful piece of landscaped property with plenty of open spaces for reading, contemplating, or enjoying nature's best. It was an idyllic setting for a birthday weekend. Four adults fit perfectly in the quaint size house. The amenities were perfect for basic living and very well suited for the area. The private road leading up to the house if very very narrow and winding, so make sure you get there with plenty of daylight to navigate, but it is worth it for the rewarding accommodations at the end. Also good to note for distance reference is that the property is about 20 minutes from Big Sur Bakery. Not a big deal, but be prepared to drive. Dave was very helpful with directions and responsive to any questions. He gave us some nice tips for things to do in the area. We also found easy to use printed guidelines onsite and there were identifiable labels around the house to assist any visitor. Essentially, we loved our stay and hope to go back again and again and again.
The house was so amazing and secluded, even though we were not camping, it really felt like an authentic nature experience. We enjoyed hiking down the hill from the house and exploring the beaches. I only wish when we got there, we made it by daylight so the place was easier to find, plus the view on the drive to the place is stunning.
Only what we can say is that Dave, his house in Big Sur and our stay there was just incredible. We are a german couple who married with a small group of 4 people at this breathtaking place! We are overwhelmed how nice the booking and the contacting with Dave was. Nothing was never a problem and he aswered our questions always quick. Now we are a little sad, that we couldnt meet such a nice guy in person, cause in that time we are staying Dave was in Munich(how funny is that country exchange program
This is a truly gorgeous location, with views of Garrapata Beach and the mountains from all directions. The grounds are immaculately kept, great to lounge around in and enjoy your morning or evening coffee following a day in Big Sur. The cottage itself is cozy and with a good kitchen and fireplace in the living room. We slept 6, but it is best for 4. If you are looking for a very private retreat a short drive from Pfeiffer Beach, Andrew Molera and other Big Sur destinations this is an excellent launch pad. Very beautiful experience!
My parents, sister and I shared this lovely cabin over Christmas this year. It was an absolute delight - very comfortable and private. We were particularly impressed by the very well maintained gardens and hiking trail down to the beach. Gorgeous place to stay, we couldn't have been happier with it!
Dave Randall was wonderful to work with. Friendly, responsible and got back to me fast every time. I would be delighted to rent from him again, and would go out of my way to choose him for a rental.
Dave is the ideal host. Responsive, reliable, honest, friendly -- everything we could have asked for. Dave met us at a pre-determined place and time and personally guided us to the home we rented. And that home -- what a place -- was exactly as Dave advertised. It is a beautiful property with amazing views. We will want to come back, and we will want to work with Dave again. We highly recommend him!
Dave kindly met us at the bottom of the hill to lead us to the property. We knew this place was beautiful by the listing but when we got there we were blown away by the property. It was the perfect getaway. Magical. Wish we could have stayed longer! We will definitely book here again on your next trip to Big Sur.
Dave and his girlfriend have been great guests and it was a pleasure to host them !
Thanks Tobi. Great meeting you. We enjoyed our stay. And we may come back next year to the ISPO and stay again.
Dave and Lin were great guests and it was a pleasure to host them here. They took the best care of the flat and left the place very clean and tidy. We only met briefly, but it was very nice talking to them and it would be very nice to see Dave and Lin again.
