Spectacular home with incredible views of the ocean!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home has so much to offer! We came here to celebrate our anniversary, very romantic! The house is very eclectic, with many areas to relax and just enjoy the peaceful, easy felling! I loved looking up at the ceiling in the master bedroom and seeing stars, yes, STARS! The architect did not miss a beat, a window in the ceiling!!! We loved coming home each evening around 4:00 to pour a glass of wine we purchased at the tasting rooms in town, prepare some appetizers and sit out in the sun room and watch the beautiful sunset, absolutely stunning! Cambria is such a charming town with so much to offer, not to mention all of the wonderful people! I really can't begin to describe the feeling of being here! It was great to see deer and raccoons, just don't see that in Las Vegas! Great to be away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, very magical!!!

Wonderful place with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place with spectacular views! Views of the ocean, downtown and the hills. The home is eccentric with great accommodations. Word to the wise, watch out when walking down the steps as the above tree has MANY vultures in it close the the evening time. But they keep to themselves. :)

Magical vibe-y cabin getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, best friend and I had an excellent vaca here while we drove down the coast and visited Hearst castle. This home was everything I could have imagined from the photos and then some!!! A complete dream come true! There were SO many wild vultures in the tree on the property and we LOVE watching them and finding their pretty feathers everywhere! The spa was soooo fun! Very private and the gazebo around it had the coolest feel!! We loved the indoor jet tub on the top level as well! So many chill spots and fun nooks and crannies. I just can't say how much we loved this magical sunkissed cabin!

Owner's Response: so happy to hear you enjoyed all the things about the house we love....those turkey vultures are huge and poop all over the stairs and we need to constantly have it all power washed...but they are cool to watch take off and land and fight for their spot on the tree. Nature has it's pluses and minuses...

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.
