"Wonderful place if you want to disconnect a few days from society and technology" - Philip, 12/01/2018 (inquire/book)
"A great place to retreat and relax. The house was equipped with everything we needed, and more. We would definitely stay there again." - Gabriela, 12/01/2018 (inquire/book)
"The character and charm of this rustic historic property make it a real neat place to stay. The price is high for the condition of the accommodations (very rustic/basic) but the Big Sur location and the charm make it an enjoyable experience. To get the full experience be sure to make use of the wood stove (even cook on it) and do some painting. Also the outdoor area has a stage for kids to perform their magic. The drive up the valley is super cool too!!" - Jeffrey, 12/01/2018 (inquire/book)
"A hidden gem within the woods. Sofanya's hospitality is fantastic, she's communicative, and very helpful. Come here if you want to relax and get away from the technology that consumes our daily lives. Plus, very close to all the fun stops in Big Sur and Carmel." - Alex, 12/01/2018 (inquire/book)
"Beautiful and remote. The feeling inside looking up through the skylights at night with the fire going ... hard to get better than that." - Kelly, 11/01/2018 (inquire/book)I'm so happy you were able to enjoy the skylights.....I know it's quite an experience to watch the moon and stars from there! Please visit again! Sofanya
"This cabin was really a unique spot tucked away in the woods, just what we were looking for in terms of quiet and beauty. The only thing we weren't prepared for was how cold the space was. There isn't any flooring or wall insulation, so our feet were really cold. Be sure to bring slippers with you. We absolutely loved the wood burning stove in the living area and had ample fire wood for our stay, but we did have to move around the space heaters to supplement a bit. Otherwise Sofanya was really sweet and accommodating, we'd definitely recommend visiting her cabins!" - Dawn, 11/01/2018 (inquire/book)
"This place is a gem. We wish we could’ve stayed longer." - Donna, 11/01/2018 (inquire/book)
"Such a beautiful setting hosted by a gifted host. I just love the trees. In twenty minutes either way you can be in Big Sur or Carmel and when you return to the Jewel you are lost in a forest of Redwoods. Very cool. Definitely give Sofanya a call if you want a relaxing and renewing experience." - David, 10/01/2018 (inquire/book)You were wonderful guests and I so appreciate your friendliness and leaving my cottage in such good and clean condition. I LOVED your paintings...yaaayyyy! I look forward to future visits. Sofanya
"Sofanya gave us a beautiful escape in the woods. Would definitely recommend this to other people to escape!" - Aron, 10/01/2018 (inquire/book)Aron you were great perfect and wonderful guests.....thank you! You're welcome here any time!
"Your stay at Sofanya’s place will be peaceful, healing and restful! This cabin in the woods took me back to my childhood where I played with nature and had real human interaction. My husband and I were on our 5 year honeymoon (a new tradition we have started) and found Sofanya’s place. We had such a wonderful time reading books with a fire stove going, talking about our relationship and our kids and life. This is a great place to disconnect from all the distractions of everyday day life including WiFi and social media and emails. You will get the best sleep ever and wake up ready to either enjoy the forest or head out to enjoy Carmel which is a short 15-20 minute drive. Sofanya was great with her communication, her accommodations and her spirit is beautiful! Thank you for everything, we will be back with our kiddos very soon!" - Elsa And Taylor, 9/01/2018 (inquire/book)
"If your looking for a truly authentic emerging experience with California and Big Sur, this is the place! Close to everything we wanted to visit and do. The cabin is tucked into a Redwood forest that just made our jaws drop. Epic views and an amazing place to get away and recharge. Our host Sophonya was amazing. Extremely nice and welcoming with helpful advice for dinner and spectacular views of the sunset. We wish we just had more time to stay." - Gabriel, 9/01/2018 (inquire/book)I hope that you'll come back again and stay longer! Wonderful guests and it's such a joy to host such lovely humans! Sofanya

"Sofanya’s place is perfect for a family looking to disconnect for a few days. Amazing wooded location less than a mile from the coast. A great private courtyard that our young daughter really enjoyed. Was bright and warm during the day, and cozy during the night. We will definitely stay here again." - James, 7/01/2018 (inquire/book)
