"My husband and I spent 9 days at the house and we were totally enamoured with it. The views are incredible and with the forest at the back of the house, it truly felt like a tree house. The first night we arrived, we sat on the upper deck from the bedroom and were mesmerized by the full moon, a falling star and the sounds of the ocean and the seals in the distance. It is a magical place and we are very lucky to have shared it. Debbie was great to work with for the arrangements. It's a 10 out 10."

"The Garden Cottage Retreat was the ideal spot for a quiet, private get-away. The cottage has all the comforts of home and very sweet personal touches. It is roomy for one or two, and there is nothing better than the private deck overlooking the lovely landscaping, the trees, and the ocean. The space is perfect for quiet study, reading, meditation, bird watching. There are ample walks, including to town and also access to the park trails all the way to the ocean. This is a spot I very much look forward to returning to. Thanks to the owners for opening their lovely property to us."

A Wonderful Home Nestled in a Quiet Cambria Neighborhood
"This beautiful home was the perfect set-up for both of our families. It's a great for entertaining guests. The layout of the home was layed out very nicely with an "air of openness" which allowed us to bond and connect to each other well throughout our stay there. Having the few set of stairs coming in on both sides of the 1st floor made it convenient for us to access the 2nd floor. The artwork was very unique with classy glass sculptures, classic pieces of artwork and decorative seashells that added to the restful and pleasant atmosphere. The couches were very welcoming and oh so comfortable. The kitchen was big enough and had plenty of counter space to have all 7 of us cooking together one night! The master bedroom and the other main bedroom had firm mattresses which allowed us to sleep comfortably. It was a treat for our girls to sleep together in the twin bedroom. They had such a wonderful time. The bathrooms were beautiful and very clean.
We went on a nice hike along Fiscalini Ranch trail near the home. It was a beautiful day for us to enjoy the "woodsy" area as well as the scenic view of the ocean. We were also able to catch some glimpses whales way out there! A great beach to visit is Moonstone Beach. It wasn't crowded and quite nice to walk on.
The owners, Cynthia and Dwight were very nice, responsive and helpful. We definitely had a enjoyable experience here! Thank you!"

"My boys (15 ands 17) and I took a week trip up the Central coast for some R&R and to tour some colleges. We spent 3 days in this lovely home and it was amazing. It was clean, spacious and appreciated all the thoughtful touches like hand soap, tissues, and loads of towels. The kitchen was well stocked. We walked to the beach every evening to watch the sunset. We hiked the nearby preserve every morning and saw whales, dolphins, and seals. We took a day trip to Big Sur. I can't wait to bring my husband here and add in some wine tasting!"
