Overview

Central Coast California House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Seaview on Burton: 'Step Into the Forest' This Tudor style home sits above a Monterey pine forest sweeping a half mile down to the ocean, one of the few vacation homes in the area which borders a forest preserve. The quaint seaside village of Cambria is a leisurely five minute drive from the property.

You are within seconds of scenic walking trails through pine-forested Strawberry Canyon,' which lies directly behind the property. The beach is an easy 15-minute walk through the woods and along quiet residential streets. You can pick through the tide pools at nearby Lampton Cliffs park, or walk along the boardwalk bluff trail or on the miles of forest and marine terrace paths of the stunningly beautiful public Fiscalini Ranch Preserve.

About James Kelty

As writer and documentary filmmaker working in many areas of California, I moved with my family from Los Angeles to this spectacular part of the Central Coast in 1988, both as an inspirational retreat and a place with easy access to other areas of the Golden State.

James Kelty purchased this house in 2000

Why James Kelty chose Central Coast California

We love back country hiking and mountain biking, particular in Big Sur, for which Cambria is the southern gateway, as well as kayaking in San Simeon Cove. The area is also rich in history, which is my area of expertise as a writer/producer, so that made it an equally good fit. Cultural and environmental attractions include Hearst Castle and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. I work with both of these organizations on interpretive media projects.

What makes this house unique

My hope is that guests coming to this special house bordering the forest and the ocean will leave feeling refreshed and inspired.

PERFECT WEEKEND!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks James..Everything was great. We had three couples for the weekend. The house was even better than than the photos. We went wine tasting and the location was ideal. The bedrooms and beds were very comfortable and large. The ocean views from the balconies were to die for! Kitchen well equipped and had everything we needed. Went for early morning walks, such a beautiful environment... Watch out for the wild turkey down the street. Cannot wait to visit again!!

Seaview on Burton

  • 5 of 5

It was our first stay at this lovely place and we hoped not the last one.

It was actually our first stay at a private residence and we especially appreciate the attention to detail by owner-managers like Seaview's as opposed to the agency type home rentals or hotel stay.

View of the ocean, the sound of ocean - great!!

Thank you Jim

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Every year my Nieces and I go on a "girl-trip" usually in California. This is the third time we have landed on the Central Coast as it is half way for all of us and have to say that this home was the best of the best on the Central coast. Nice layout of home, large bedrooms, good usable kitchen, quiet, lovey sunsets, great walks, decks with tranquility, and a safe feeling environment. We four had a terrific time and wish to return next year. Only a couple of silly downfalls...lack of closet in Captain's Room, lack of hangers in all closets, upstairs bathroom could use some upgrades, we had to be very careful with the wood counter tops in the kitchen and the wood floor in the bathrooms and lastly, the home was beautiful and didn't need the fake flowers on the driveway. (throw them out - better nothing).

We love it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this beautiful big house with a whole forest as a back yard. Both floors had great decks to sit out on, and seeing the ocean beyond the treetops was really relaxing. This one's at the top of our list.

Breathtaking sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly appreciate this beautiful accommodation in Cambria. The home is Very clean, spacious, and luxurious with absolute serenity and tranquility, for those wanting to simply reconnect with family, breathe gloriously fresh air and unplug from work. Moonstone Beach is nearby and is beautiful setting for a picnic or sunset view also. We greatly enjoyed and highly recommend the Seaview at Burton.

Thank you James for opening your lovely home to us and our family.
