About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

This single-level home is located two blocks from the beach, with wonderful white-water views of Pirates Cove and the Fiscalini Preserve. Relax and listen to the waves crashing on the rocks, and the seals calling to one another. Or, take a hike on one of the many trails in the Fiscalini Ranch across the street. The views from this home are simply breath-taking.

Shammel Park is close by, with picnic facilities and a swimming pool. The coastline is rugged with a Big Sur feel, but the beach is nearby if you wish to stroll and gather shells and rocks. Hearst Castle is ten minutes away, with daily tours, complete with an IMAX Theater, and the drive north affords a view of one of the most spectacular coastlines in the world. There is a park adjacent to it with a pier which affords fishing and kayaking.

Cambria is a small town nestled in one of the last strands of Monterey Pines in California, and is home to a variety of birds and marine life. Along its Main Street are charming boutiques, gift shops, and fine dining.

Moonstone Beach is famous for its natural beauty and numerous tide pools. There are well-maintained trails and outdoor cafes that enable one to relax and unwind while enjoying glorious sunsets and the invigorating Central California coast.

About Robin Wieland

Maryann and I live in the San Fernando Valley. She is an RN for Kaiser Permanente, and I work out of our home. We have no children, but have 2 cats that we take with us whenever we stay in our Cambria home!

Robin Wieland purchased this house in 2000

Why Robin Wieland chose Park Hill

This home is special to us, and we are planning to retire in it someday! We love Cambria (who wouldn't love this place?) and chose it because of its location in Park Hill and its wonderful views of the Preserve and ocean.

What makes this house unique

The Ranch Trails are close at hand. Just walk up Huntington Road past 6-7 houses and to the right between 2 homes you will see the entrance to the Fiscalini Upper Trail! This trail hooks up with all of the other trails in the ranch, including the popular Bluff Trail, so you can start and end your tour of the ranch area right 'next' to our home. Also, Shamel Park is only a 5 minute walk away (beach area, pool, picnic tables, etc).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been coming to Cambria for the Presidents Weekend for 7 years and this is the 2nd time we have stayed in your fantastic home. This is our place of choice to stay and treat it as if it was our own. Thank you so much. We look forward to visiting next year!

Needs Work

  • 3 of 5

Great location and size, there were 6 adults and 3 dogs.

Great kitchen. However the beds in all 3 rooms were terrible. They all sagged and needed to be replaced and in our room the sheets were so

full of fabric softener that we had to cover them to sleep.

The outside areas needed a gardener, dirty, overgrown and full of leaves and debris.

With a little TLC this house could be wonderful. It is not worth the price at this time.

full of perfume that we needed to put

great house for holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples from one family between Xmas and New Year. The house was perfect with all the kitchen amenities and we even took advantage of the charcol barbeque grill. The view were gorgeous and was appreciated by all as we are city dwellers. Everything was in working order and there are ample plates, utensils, pots, and gadgets to cook. There were some basics supplies (spices, dishwashing detergent, coffee filter, plastic wrap etc..) which made cooking much easier the first day. It got cold but the thermostat was easy to figure out. It is a very easy day drive to Paso Robles wine tasting and sea food bonanza at Morro Bay. The only complaint we had is that it is not bright enough to do some reading in the dining room or living room in the evening. We had no problems with TV and internet (this was important to some of us). We had two seniors staying so the one floor plan was perfect. We would have no hesitations recommending this place.

Wonderful house w/ a wonderful view and even better . . . a lovely walking preserve right across the street. Cambria appeals to the naturalist as well as the urbanite . . . we had a wonderful time. When we visit again, we're looking up this house again. Couldn't have been more pleased. Thanks!

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This rental home is fantastic! We absolutely loved it. One of the best rentals in Cambra and we have stayed at many homes and hotels in the area. We have finally found our home to rent in Cambria for the price.

This home is pet friendly too. We take our Golden Retriever wherever we go, and it's just fine. Backyard is small, but big enough to take care of business. Fiscalini Ranch Preserve's Huntington entrance is just a couple blocks up the hill. Plenty of room for exercise and running the dog. If that's not enough, try the beach close to Hearst Castle. More fun for doggies to be had.

The cleanest home we have rented. Only thing is housekeeping just needs to swiffer under the couches. That's it, the only thing I could find that wasn't perfect. We just wish we had more time to enjoy it.

Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed. Can't wait until our next trip there.
