Guestbook comments from the manager

The Pelican Cottage is an amazing gem! All of the women in our group wanted to stay and never return to the reality of Los Angeles and the hustle and bustle that comes with it. The home was so spacious and well equipped and bright with so many lovely windows and beautifully decorated. We had such a great time. It was so peaceful at the house and was just far enough from the main roads to be quiet and serene but close enough to everything to be a short drive or walk away. We thank you so much for a simply wonderful weekend of R&R that your property provided. Thanks for all of the instructions –everything was smooth and easy.

Wonderful rental in Cambria, perfect for a group

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Pelican Cottage. It's a really sweet little space, and we felt very at-home there. There are two spacious bedrooms, and a big great room with a fireplace. The kitchen is on the smaller side but still plenty of room to fix meals. We would definitely come back!

Cute house

  • 3 of 5

The house was cute and accurately reflected on the site. The house did smell a little musty when we arrived but it aired out fairly quickly. The only real issue while we were there is that one of the light bulbs blew and there were no extras in the house. We called the property manager, but they were quite dismissive and simply said they didn't see an issue and couldn't do anything to help.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for staying at Pelican Cottage. I am happy that you found the cottage to be a cozy place and as represented on the site. Our guests are important to us and we try our very best so that they have a positive and enjoyable experience while there. Occasionally there are small things that come up in any house, such as a light bulb that burns out. I apologize that there was not a spare readily available. When we spoke, due to the lateness of the hour I could not bring you a new bulb but was pleased that you took my suggestion to swap one out from one of the many other light sources in the home. We are sorry you perceived a musty odor. We had a steady flow of guests prior to your visit, but no odors were mentioned by them. Sincerely, Property Manager

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Pelican Cottage. We had a small issue-- the coffee maker stopped working but a phone call to the property manager solved the issue right away. She personally delivered a brand new coffee maker! We would definitely stay at the cottage again!

Fantastic cottage for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and toddler and I stayed here for a week this past August. It's a great home for families with small kids, as they have lots of toys and carpeting (and stairs, but if you bring your own baby gate that's solved). Close to a fabulous playground and gorgeous beach, and minutes from Cambria's main street. We loved every minute, and would love to go back! So quiet and peaceful!!

Quiet, Peaceful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here for the weekend and we really enjoyed it. The house was immaculate and was perfect for the two of us, since we both wanted our own bedroom and bathroom. The living room was perfect and we enjoyed the gas fireplace at night. The neighborhood is very quiet and you will sleep very well. Only thing we both wished we had were small fans in the bedroom. Otherwise, it was perfect. I would definitely rent this house again!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great couples' weekend getaway at the Pelican Cottage! The house was homey and immaculate and full of great amenites. And the location was perfect; right down the street from the beach and a stone's throw from downtown Cambria. We all had such a wonderful time exploring the town and the coast all around. We would DEFINITELY stay at Pelican Cottage again and hope to soon!! Thanks for everything!
