About the property

An aesthetic delight high above Cambria steeped in nature but close to town

This property is a perfect blend of rural, coastal and luxury. Sitting on a commanding promontory 800 feet above the valleys that surround it, this two bedroom ranch home has epic views in every direction. The folds of the commanding Santa Lucia Mountains back Cinnabar Ranch, and the Pacific Ocean sets the western panorama, with 40 miles of wild coastline on view.

This large two bedroom house is set up to display the vast beauty that encompasses it. Generous windows frame scene after gorgeous scene. The home has been provisioned with all the things to make your stay comfortable, regal and inspiring. The details of this vacation home will impress. From the fine linens to the quality furnishings. From the books on the shelf to the movies ready to play. From the huge, fully equipped kitchen to the outdoor areas. You will feel immediately at home here. We have tried to anticipate most needs. This house is fully supplied with (almost) everything you'd use at home. Whether that's laundry or ironing, medicine chest basics to baking supplies. We want this stay to exceed your expectations.

The peace of this place will find you. Sitting on 80 private acres, there is both room to roam, and space to gain from the rest of the world. You could have a perfectly lovely stay without ever leaving the property, but if the allure of town (Cambria), the coast or Hearst Castle call to you, it is all a brief drive away. But you'll want to be back here for at least one sunset as the location is set up to provide quite a show. And it's far enough from manmade light that the night sky is typically deep black and spectacular. Enjoy a patio fire and reminisce about the day.

A nature walk from the house can be a fine activity. See cows grazing down valley, critters roaming the grounds, or hawks and vultures circling overhead. Board game inside or yard game outside? How about the hammock and a good book? Or for more modern engagements, there is satellite tv and internet. With a very short drive, you can get to wine tasting, horseback riding and other country goodness. Town has a variety of restaurants, unique shops and art galleries. And, of course, the ocean and beaches await your discovery.

About Brian Wright

I decided to move my family to the Central Coast in 2012 from the Midwest. Here, we've found a world that fits our idea of what life should be. The opportunities to craft a life, whether they be family, community, arts, food, fitness, outdoors....are impressively abundant. Some of what I enjoy doing is helping other people connect to this very special place.

Brian Wright purchased this house in 2013

Why Brian Wright chose Central Coast

This property holds many of the qualities that make this part of California so incredible. Hill, valley, mountain, ocean. The nature it contains is abundant and amazing. The nature that surrounds it is gob-smackingly beautiful. And the nature that it pulls out of you when you're there is it's best quality of all.

What makes this house unique

A magical blend of rural peace, coastal inspiration and convenience to town and outdoor activities, all from a beautiful luxury ranch home.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We had an wonderful and restful 5 day stay at ”heaven on earth”. What a privilege and joy it has been to watch the sunrise at dawn over the mountains and the always dramatic sunsets over the Pacific. Because of recent rains, the mountains are covered with luscious shades of green only found in nature. And like previous guests, we enjoyed the company of 2 donkeys, a beautiful chestnut horse, lots of vocal cattle, deer, hawks and quails. We have stayed at many nice VRBO homes in the past 10 years but Cinnabar Ranch tops them all. We definitely intend to return next year.

Fabulous Rental

  • 5 of 5

Five adults stayed at Cinnabar Ranch at the end of October 2016. We all had a wonderful time and the house and property more than met our expectations! We arrived after dark on the first night and woke up to absolutely beautiful views from every window. The views from this home are truly amazing - that alone makes it a great place to stay. However, the home is beautiful as well and had everything we needed to have a great vacation. It is situated far enough out of Cambria to be very private but just a short drive takes you into town and sightseeing. Perfectly situated for a drive up or down the Pacific Coast Highway and very convenient to Hearst Castle, shopping, and restaurants. The home is all on one level which was perfect for my elderly parents, who had no problems inside or out. The owner was great to deal with - answering questions and responding quickly. I would highly recommend this property and would love to return!

Panorama on the Pacific

  • 5 of 5

It was well worth the curving, winding, uphill road to this house. Thanks to the detailed instructions, we arrived in time to enjoy a spectacular sunset and the panoramic views of hills and valleys leading up to the Pacific. This was a magnificent house and very well equipped for two couples. It provided a memorable stop on our drive up the Coast.

Great house with views in every direction!

  • 5 of 5

5 of us stayed in this house for a holiday weekend girls getaway trip. It met all of my expectations and looks like the pictures. The house is great with views from every room! The beds are very comfortable and the showers are an awesome design. There's a nice big kitchen and dining room table (be sure to catch at least one sunset from the house). This house is the perfect combination of being private and relaxing, but not far from town! The only thing that seemed to be lacking was a microwave to reheat our meals. The property manager answered all of my questions and the house was clean. The road up to the house isn't paved the whole way and is a little steep and windy but definitely doable. We enjoyed all of the wildlife in the area and visiting the Stolo Winery down the road. Cambria is a very cute town with friendly people, as is the tiny neighboring two-store town of Harmony (south), and elephant seal viewing and Hearst Castle aren't far north on the 1. Definitely recommend staying at this house!

A little slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here this past February. Mountain view on one side, the Pacific on the other. We got to see sunsets, and moon sets every day. The Elephant Seals were abundant. By far one of the prettiest places we have ever stayed. Quiet, peaceful, and incredible views. Clean, comfortable, large kitchen.

Very Peaceful Location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to relax and feel that peaceful easy feeling. Beautiful home, well maintained, and amazing 360 degree views of the surrounding hills with the ocean off in the distance. We were treated to spectacular sunsets and the stars were brilliant. Shopping and restaurants only 15 minutes away. Beautiful drive along the coast with a stop to see the elephant seals. Will definitely return.
