About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

'Leopold Cove' is a beautiful Oceanfront Home located on the Central Coast of California. It has fabulous ocean views and access to the water from a private stairway. The living area has large plate glass windows that feature 180 degree views of the Pacific Ocean. A comfortable platform style double size bed & a warm, cozy fireplace are also located in the living area so you can relax for hours, or even days, enjoying the beauty that surrounds you. There is a full kitchen & a separate bedroom with 2 twin beds. The property also has a picnic area & places to sit, perhaps with a good book & a glass of wine while you watch the sunset. If you are a nature lover, you will enjoy the otters, seals & birdlife that we are privileged to have so close to us. During the gray whale migration times, this is a perfect spot to view these magnificent creatures.

You will have access to many Central Coast attractions from Cambria. Cambria itself is a charming village that features galleries, shops, a playhouse, local music and a variety of dining options, as well as a beautiful environment. Big Sur and Hearst Castle are to the north and the Wine vineyards are to the East. There is a city airport and train station in San Luis Obispo.I hope you will visit soon.

This was truly a wonderful respite. The little house by the sea is magical. Every aspect of our stay here was perfect. Andrea & Tony, Long Beach Ca.

We couldn't have asked for a more amazing house to vacation in. It was wonderful falling asleep to the sound of the ocean--we cant't wait to come back. Kris & Brian

This was our first visit but certainly not the last. Leopold Cove is an architectual delight with hidden treasures in every room.We celebrated our 36th wedding anniversay here--this was the perfect place to reflect on our past & plan our future. Dennis & JoAnn, Ventura CA.

Another relaxing stay at Leopold Cove--we spent our 30th, 31st & now our 32nd anniversary here, just the way we like--enjoying the fireplace, watching movies, playing Scrabble, reading & gazing at the ocean. Andy & Debbie, Bakersfield CA.

Our first vist to this wonderful, magical place. We celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary here with a raging, glorious storm as the back drop. It is so peaceful here--counting the days until we can return. Chris & Michael, Oxnard CA.

This home is a piece of art, from the etchings on the beams to the wonderful tub/shower, the redwood chairs & table--it all adds to the ambience. We loved the beachcombing, walking the bluff trail to the North & watching all the wildlife.Leopold Cove is a beautiful spot to unwind from busy lives & recharge the spirit. John and Bonnie, Glendora CA.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our quiet getaway on the coast. The house is right on the water and couldn't be in a better location. Can't wait to stay there again!

Beyond All Expectation

  • 5 of 5

We had high hopes for our 38th anniversary when we booked the house in Cambria based on the photos and description. When we arrived there, every aspect of the property and our stay exceeded our best expectations. It would be almost impossible to improve on the setting. Inside or out of the house the ocean is part of everything, all day and all night. We watched three sunsets with a fire in the fireplace, greeted the morning with our coffee by the sea, fell asleep to the sound of waves and stars so clear from the bed in the main room it was like camping on the beach. There is so much amazing detail in the house it self as well and it took most of three days to notice it all. The entire experience was eye candy for the soul. A perfect stay and we will be back.

Home away from home amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Thus was our second time staying here. It feels like home now. We were engaged a year ago there and this was our honeymoon. The people in town our wonderful the trails and parks to walk are perfect. We actually went to an open house in which the designer was the same man who designed our house first we learned some nice history. The house is fully stocked the bed in the living room is a nice way to fall asleep with the waves and to wake too. I so love walking the tide pools you can spend hours. The house is always so clean and the courtyard is so beautiful. I so recommend this place.

Oceanside Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property for two. Though there is a separate bedroom with two twin beds this property is best served for two, quite possibly adding two children, but certainly not for 4 adults. The views from both inside and on the back deck are spectacular and allow for long, relaxing enjoyment of mother natures nautical environment. As mentioned by previous guests the shower area requires extreme caution, both inside the shower area, slippery tile, and exiting with wet conditions. The kitchen is equipped with a rather small refrigerator, so I recommend you bring a cooler as well, especially if you plan on cooking rather than eating out. Cambria is our favorite Central Coast location, and we would easily return to this property and would highly recommend to others as well. Last, our dealings with the property manager were exceptional, even to the point that she had suggested that we reschedule our original booking to ovoid a 'hot weather spell' that would have made our time less comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review of Leopold Cove and kind comments about the property is greatly appreciated. Although we do have a unique shower area in our home as the photos indicate, the vast majority of our guests throughout the past 15 years have not expressed any concerns about using the shower and bath. Also, there are hand grips for safety. We would always recommend to any guest to be cautious while getting into and out of any shower or bath, regardless of which home they stay in. Sincerely, Property Owner

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Location is great with steps leading down to the water. It is a bit awkward to get in/out of the shower and it could be an issue if you are physically challenged with your mobility. But for most folks it would not be a problem. It is a very clean and well maintained property.

Beautiful beachfront property.

  • 5 of 5

Quiet privacy and amazing view from this small, artistically designed home. Romantic atmosphere and sounds of the waves provided a relaxing getaway. Invited friends for drinks and snacks one afternoon, and enjoyed sitting outside sharing memories and the lovely atmosphere.

The platform bed, with unobstructed view of the ocean, is delightful, and we were lucky to stay when the moon was full, reflecting it's radiance across the ocean waves.
