A Surf Break - Stunning Coastal Views in Cambria

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

The sea is calling you in this recently updated Park Hill home, just steps from the beach and Shamel Park.

This home offers stunning panoramic views of whitewater surf on Moonstone Beach, Hearst Ranch and historic Cambria Pines. You’ll never tire of the breathtaking views from the

Wraparound deck, kitchen, dining, great room and master bedroom. The entire Northwest corner of this house offers these stunning views! You will love the extraordinarily comfortable sectional sofa in the nautical great room, with plenty of seating for everyone. Two comfy chairs sit in the bay window for whale watching (binoculars supplied). The entertainment area is set up for your own music source, a Blu-Ray player, and a flat screen, ‘smart’ TV.

The master bedroom boasts night views of the Piedras Blancas lighthouse beam and sounds of the pounding surf. There is a Cal King bed, and another flat screen TV. The upstairs guest room

has two twin beds, with beautiful nautical-themed bedding.

Make your way downstairs to the den and entertainment area, with DVD player and TV. There is a full size sofa which pulls out to a comfy sleeper sofa.

The two additional bedrooms downstairs have queen beds, and are beautifully decorated. One of the bedrooms accesses the garden sitting area.

If you enjoy cooking, you will appreciate the well-stocked kitchen (dishes, flatware, gadgets, cooking tools, serving dishes, etc.), enabling you to prepare a delicious and memorable meal for up to ten.

Every one of your guests dining with you will enjoy the same stunning views while sitting at the table. Just outside the dining room you’ll find a charbroil Propane BBQ, gassed up and ready for your meal cooked on the deck.

The home is conveniently located a half mile from the town of Cambria. There you can enjoy wine tasting, great restaurants, and a variety of unique shops.

San Simeon hiking trails, the Fiscalini Ranch bluff trails, kayaking, the Elephant Seal preserve, and extensive Central Coast wine tasting is a short drive away.

If the sea is calling you, and you love to watch the surf break, pelicans dive, whales spout, and gaze at the rolling hills of Hearst Ranch, this is the home for you!

Cambria is a beautiful beach village, anchored by numerous specialty gift shops, fabulous restaurants, and artist galleries. The Pacific Ocean is readily accessible by Moonstone Beach and Fiscalini Ranch, both well known for their walking trails. Cambria is known for its chef-driven restaurants, whose cuisines and menus draw upon local farms. Nestled 10 miles south of San Simeon, visitors often visit Hearst Castle and the Hearst wine tasting room adjacent to San Simeon Bay, where kayaking and fishing is readily available. The beautiful beaches of Cayucos and Morro Bay lie just 20 miles south of Cambria, where one can enjoy deep sea fishing, great restaurants, or visit the iconic Morro Bay rock. Perhaps the biggest draw of Cambria is the famous vineyards available in nearby Paso Robles. Highway 46 is a short 5 miles south of Cambria and leads to Vineyard Drive where one will discover a vast array of excellent central coast wines. Cambria is a warm, hospitable hamlet which is centrally located for a wide range of activities.

About The Owner

Three decades-long friends decided to embark on an adventure of sharing a home with others who love the ocean as much as we do. We worked hard to renovate the entire house in such a way as to welcome guests. We equipped the home with all the amenities we love, including a thoroughly stocked kitchen (utensils, pots, dishes, spices, etc.) and various sitting areas - both inside and out. Everything is new - from beds to flooring, dishes to sheets, BBQ to artwork. The backyard is spectacular - a restful setting to sit and read in the mornings.

The Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why The Owner chose Park Hill

We bought this home because of the fabulous views and location. You cannot beat the sunsets and the ability to cook and view the ocean at the same time. We have spotted whales and dolphins on a regular basis, and have had deer meander up the street in the early morning. In addition, Cambria's proximity to the incredible Central Coast vineyards was also a huge plus!

What makes this house unique

The unique setting, location, and views moved us to buy this home and share it with others. Enjoy!

Beautiful view and close to the beach.

Great property for a large group. Only drawback for anyone with disablities is a great deal of stairs.

Cozy Home That Offers Plenty of Amenities and a Good Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a work trip up in San Simeon and this home was the perfect place for us to stay during those days! It had everything we could need (iron/ironing board, linens, washer/dryer, a large amount of kitchen tools) and there was not a single moment where our team was disappointed. There was a large amount of space for all of us to move around comfortably, the deck/deck furniture provided an amazing space to sit out and watch the ocean, and the beach is just down the street within walking distance. Although a little trek, we even walked down the beach/pathway and had a nice dinner not too far from the home. If we are ever in the San Simeon area again for work, we will absolutely be staying in this home. The price point was great for our group & what was provided and we were extremely satisfied. :)

Wonderful getaway property

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but good things to report . What a fantastic place! Location is great, just minutes to the Village, easy walk to a beautiful beach. At night we enjoyed the quiet, the air and the stars. The views from the front porch are amazing. Every amenity you could need for your stay. The owner's taste is superb. We have stayed in quite a few rental houses and this one had the best beds of them all. I recommend this place for couples and families. I would love to take this beach house for my own!

Wonderful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a stay at A Surf Break and had an amazing time! Our group had a wide range of ages (10 months - 75 years), and it was perfect for everyone. We really enjoyed watching and listening to the ocean from the deck - soooo relaxing! The back yard was perfect for the kids to play in.....and go up and down the stairs around the house to get out that extra energy. The location next to the Fiscalini Preserve, Shammel Park and the West side of Cambria can't be beat. The house was very clean and well appointed with everything we needed. We will definitely stay here the next time we go to Cambria!
