This unique Dome House feels like being inside a giant tree. It was built by civil rights attorney Sherwin Shayne and his friends over several years beginning in 1970. You will occupy the upper two levels, an expansive open floor plan with no interior walls (other than the lower level Bath) finished entirely in wood. Large windows provide views of the forest and birds. Skylights for stargazing & moon beams, and a private deck for listening to soothing owl song.

David was a wonderful guest and I felt like he lived here as he and Kevlar were felt like a natural part of the environment. Of course I fell in love with Kevlar....who wouldn't! I hope that they will come back and stay here again sometime.

Wow.........this is unlike any place I have been. My family and I decided to go a bit outside our comfort zone, no cell phone, no TV, etc. In hindsight, I wish we could have stayed longer. This property, the house, the drive in from the highway, we will never forget. This is …

Heidi & Charlie.... It was truly a joy and a blessing to meet you and have a chance to get to know you a bit. I'm thrilled that you so loved being here and I can't even express how much that means to me. I look forward to welcome you here again and I very much look forward to that!

The Dome house is beautiful and well placed for exploring Big Sur. We spent 2 nights there and had an amazing time. Kate, who helps Sofanya with the property gave us some excellent local tips for restaurants. We went to Post Ranch Inn, expensive but incredible views. We want to g…

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…
