Inspirational place!

  • 5 of 5

I have actually stayed at this house on three or four occasions. As a composer, I look for places to take a retreat where I can have enough inspiration to keep me going, and this place is the best of all the ones I have rented over the years. The view is gorgeous, the deck and hot tub are lovely, and the design of the house is so architecturally interesting. Be aware the house has a lot of stairs (40 to get to and from the driveway by my count), so it's a tough hike if you have mobility issues. Owners are very nice and responsive - first year I stayed I realized that a pedal on the piano was broken. They were more than happy to get it fixed while I was there.

This is also the house where I was staying in 2009 when I found my birth mother for the very first time, and called her from the sun porch. It has special inspiration and meaning for me, and I think it can for you, too. Highly recommended.

out of the way geometric gem

  • 5 of 5

"Out of the way" is an exaggeration since it really is so centrally located but despite that, it definitely does feel like it is well off the beaten path even though it is within minutes of anywhere in the area that you would want to be. We had a fantastic stay at this unique home in the hills of Cambria and can't recommend it highly enough.

Quiet and romantic

  • 5 of 5

It's exactly as described. There is no other home to interrupt the view out towards the ocean. Plenty of linens. Lots of good places to eat in town. If you are a late eater (after 7pm) I would suggest deciding where you're going to eat by 6. Incase you have to drive out of town. Yes most towns are in a 30 mile radius. You have to account for winding roads and traffic. Most restaurants are closed by 8-9 at the very latest. Most of our stay was during the week. Which was really nice as tourists don't start to really flow in until Thursday or Friday. Who knew so many ppl from around the world travel to cambria and the surrounding area!? If you are of an older generation and had parents who showed you Alfred Hitchcocks the birds as a child. Be fair warned. The tall tree above the master bedroom skylight is home to 20 California condors. They're huge!! And quite scary looking. They honestly pose no threat. Just something that really stuck out to me. Lol. Again. Awesome home. Awesome owners. Awesome little coastal town. Would love to go back again. Maybe with my kids. :) thank you again for opening up your home.

Quaint. Charmin & cozy.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home. It's unique for sure! We enjoyed our stay & had every amenity needed. There are a lot of stairs. For some, that might pose a problem.

Great views and setting.

  • 3 of 5

The home's interior had great architectural details and the layout gave the impression of a larger home. The pictures on the Home Away website did not do it justice. We would definitely rent here again. Some maintenance is needed to make the deck more enjoyable. The exterior lighting around the deck and hot tub area weren't functioning, and some of the decking was loose.
