Great location94% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

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.

Sofanya’s Dome House is a unique place. It is a cabin adorned with unique artwork and rustic touches. Set back a couple miles from Route 1, the dome house is more secluded than many of the inns that you may find in Big Sur. It is on a local one lane road with cabins. Sofanya’s …
