Guestbook comments from the owner

We just spent a week in your home and wanted to let you know it was the best week we have ever spent in Cambria, and a lot of that had to do with the house. We have been vacationing in Cambria for well over ten years now, and have been renting the house on Stafford directly behind your home on most of those visits. We have always admired the Chatham house and were thrilled that we finally got the opportunity to stay there. Needless to say, it was everything we hoped for and more. Within the first few hours, it felt like we were "at home" and we did our best to treat and respect the house as if it was our home. I certainly hope we will be able to enjoy the coziness and charm of this home from now on when we come to Cambria.

Reviewer Comments:

We have stayed here before and the home is perfect for gathering family together. The outside area makes a perfect dining area for all ages. The beach is within an easy walk even if you are carting beach gear for little ones. The property is beautifully maintained and the property management is easy to deal with.

We love this little cottage with the sounds of the ocean, china plates and cozy bedrooms. Our favorite place to hang out is the kitchen! The views are amazing. There wasn't enough soap or toilet paper but other than that it was great.

This was perfect for our family! We meet up with members of our East Coast family here in California. This house is a perfect blend New England charm and beach cool! We were all so comfortable. The house is so well appointed we cooked in, enjoyed the "secret gardens", made a puzzle and watched sunsets for the porch! We will be back!!!

Beautiful historic home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this home for an extended weekend trip with our 15 m/o toddler daughter. Things we liked most about the place are its historic character, the views on the ocean from throughout the house, and the plenty of activities to do inside and outside the house. The house is filled with novelties and you notice it's taken care of very well.

The place was also cleaned well and safe for our child (who likes to explore). Scenic Coast Properties manages the rentals and they've been terrific to work with as well. They were responsive to any questions and did a great job at making us feel home.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a 4 night stay and had a wonderful time. I went by myself - some down time for a busy mom - but the house is certainly large enough to host a large family. There were two bedrooms and one bath I never used. I noticed they have provisions for families with young children like gates and baby monitors. I stayed in the upstairs suite which was very comfortable with a nice bathroom, sitting area and deck with ocean view. The downstairs has a great feel - it is a historic property with the original high ceilings and nice light especially in the dining and kitchen.The kitchen is very well stocked with equipment and cooking essentials - oils etc.. There is a large deck that wraps around the house with an ocean view and a lovely garden with some yard space. The location is ideal - a 2 minute walk to Moonstone Beach where I went for long walks every morning and evening - and spotted seals and pelicans every time. There are two restaurants within close walking range ... the town of Cambria is within walking distance as well. All in all a fabulous getaway spot. I can't wait to return!

Enchanting

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my grandson went for a few days and it was breathtaking. We both loved it.The home has everything you will need. I got my claw bath tub which I just loved. My grandson had his own T.V. The view the home the beach words can not describe. If you want peace and quite beautiful garden and the ocean this is the spot to call home. I will be back very soon. Thank you so much for letting us rent your home.
