This beautiful and inviting home is literally 'A Step Away' ..... from Shamel Park, Moonstone Beach, the Fiscalini Ranch preserve and the West Village of Cambria. The large and comfortable living room has ocean views and a gas fireplace - a great place to be, morning, noon or night. There is a dining room off the fully furnished kitchen and a large deck, with a charcoal barbeque, off the dining room. Both the dining room and the deck have tables to seat six people. The house has WiFi, two flat screen TVs with DVD players and a stereo system for DVD and ipod. There are two King beds (a regular King and a California King) and a Queen bed in the third bedroom. The backyard is protected from the wind and offers a beautiful spot for relaxation. The laundry room is on the ground floor.

This property was a great find. The unit was very very clean. My friends kept commenting on how beutiful the house was. I will definately use this property again.
Spent a week here with friends and enjoyed it immensely. The home was clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed and more! We sure enjoyed cooking in it. It is just a short walk to the beach and the neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful. Loved this home away from home.
Words cannot describe the immediate sense of peace and balance that infuses your soul when you step into "A Step Away..." This place is not just like a home away from home.... it is better than home in so many ways. The view of the coast fills you with a calm yet powerful connection with a higher being. The attention to detail in the furnishings in the living room, the bedrooms, the garden was done with the intention of creating balance in an otherwise hectic life. My husband and I have stayed here for an entire week in July, and for Veteran's Day weekend in November of 2011. Each time we had a hard time tearing ourselves away from its tranquility and zen-like atmosphere. In the summer, it was great to get up, make our own healthy breakfast and then go exploring the Central Coast. We walked from "A Step Away" to Moonstone Beach, as well as to the village itself. We spent a leisurely bike ride out to the elephant seals, and then an afternoon's drive out to San Simeon to pick up some grass-fed beef. We were able to create scrumptious meals in the house with cocktails either out on the deck, in front of the homey fireplace, or in the oh-so-comfortable living room. We also took advantage of the closeness of everything and enjoyed one day driving up Highway 1 and having lunch in Big Sur at the Big Sur River Inn, and then another day enjoying wine tasting in nearby Paso Robles. Cambria is a great location to visit and get away from the hustle and bustle and "A Step Away" creates a beautiful, serene and stress-free home to do as much as you want or as little as you want. We highly recommend "A Step Away"... even if by doing so means we won't be able to go as often. It is too beautiful not to share!!
What a magical retreat this home was. The name "a Step away" suits it so well. Wonderful ocean views and sounds of the surf from the the house. It is very easy walking distance to the beach, and to miles of walking paths along this gorgeous coast. Also you can see Hearst Castle from the living room. We actually saw a whale spout from the front window. The living room is spacious, the bedrooms are very comfortable and the whole ambiance of the place is relaxing.
We love Cambria now that we've discovered it and we'll be back again and again. There is hiking, biking, and kayaking, wonderful wineries and great food. Since we are hear close to Christmas we went to Hearst Castle for an evening tour with the lights and decorations. It was gorgeous.
