Great location and view. Maya was wonderful and very responsive. The Aquarium was amazing and Point Lobos had awesome views. My favorite was Gibson Beach. The place was really cool and in the wilderness. Clean and comfortable. Definitely would be back.

Hi Cody, we are glad you enjoyed your stay! We are sorry you didn't like the kitchen or the bathroom. We think we described it adequately in the room description, perhaps you didn't read it. All the best!

Awesome awesome Airbnb experience. So cute and cozy in the mountains overlooking the sea. The hosts were awesome sauce giving great Resturant recommendation (you must go to Christopher's for a fancy dinner, and Little Swiss Cafe for a homestyle breakfast that'll make you wanna slap ya mama." The hosts stay out of your way we didn't interact with them hardly at all. It was super romantic. We were there during the horrible Big Sur fires but there was enough to do and see at Carmel-by-the-sea. Loved it so much we will be back!

CW's studio has a beautiful and possibly unique location. Apart from a slight hiccup over timing on our arrival, CW and Ellen were perfect hosts, welcoming, courteous and helpful. They sorted out a minor problem with a ventilation duct immediately. The kitchen and bathroom are both pretty basic - no electric kettle and sink and washbasin shared - but all this is made clear in the property description. The loveliness of the setting more than makes up for the limitations of the bathroom/kitchen.

I had a lovely week-long visit at this beautiful and serene property! It is private and, though small, has everything you need. The decor is lovely and the pantry is well-supplied. The view was so nice and it was very convenient to great sites all around!

Treat yourself to a luxurious Time Out with Nature. Some of the best year-round hikes in the world just a short drive up and down beautiful Highway 1. Great in-between meeting place for friends who live to the north (SF) and to the south (LA).
