My wife and I went with a couple friends to this house, and we all could not have been happier. It's nestled near the top of the hill with a great view of the ocean. There is a terrific nook with all windows just off the kitchen for watching the sunset, which we did nightly.
The entire house is incredibly cozy, with a spectacular master bedroom and bath. The master bath was ENORMOUS with terrific fixtures and a huge jacuzzi tub (there is also a terrific hot tub outside). Dual sinks in the master bath and a rain shower with a view. I never wanted to leave the bathroom!
That said, we did :)
Down the hill (we walked - 10 minutes tops, but walking back up might be harder if you're older) was a fantastic little town. The house is a two minute drive to main street Cambria. We went to three different wine tasting rooms (all 30 second walks from each other) and actually had GREAT wine. We are big wine tasters, and were more than pleasantly surprised at the quality of the wine we tried. The rest of the town has great restaurants, an EXCELLENT coffee shop, and you can walk to the beach.
There were wild turkeys and turkey vultures, which are Central California fixtures, hanging out, which added to the whole rustic feel.
Overall, I loved the house, loved the location, loved the town. It is a perfect marriage of mountain getaway and coastal beach town. The house itself was perfect for reading a good book or making dinner. The open kitchen made it easy to cook while still hanging out and talking with everyone in the dining room. Guest bedroom was still spacious and the bathroom was also clean with new fixtures and instantly warm water. Great water pressure, which is a big factor for me.
We stay in a lot of houses up and down the central coast, and this one is absolutely on our short list of ones to return to!
