Relax in this spacious, charming guest apartment in Cambria's "Top of the World" neighborhood. It is minutes from Hearst Castle, downtown shopping, the beach, hiking and everything else Cambria Village and surrounding areas offer, including wine tasting, galleries and fine dinning. This detached upstairs suite has it all: a private entrance, panoramic views, gorgeous sunsets, abundant wildlife, out-door Jacuzzi, in-room coffee/tea maker, mini-refrigerator, wi-fi and served continental breakfast.
Guests just love the privacy and surrounding beauty of our lovely, detached. studio guest apartment that borders on a forest preserve that stretches to the Pacific Ocean.
The bright, airy, sparkling clean, spacious suite is upstairs over the garage with very nice panoramic views of the surrounding forest and the ocean (several guests have mentioned the views are actually much better then the pictures). Very quite and comfortable it is a wonderful place to retreat from the everyday world. Entrance to a forested preserve with light hiking trails, is a five-minute walk from your door. From there you can hike to the ocean and wander along more 1.5 miles of unspoiled ocean-front beauty.
Birds, deer and other wildlife abound right outside your windows, throughout the property and the entire neighborhood. The corner table / work space surrounded by windows is perfect for that morning cup of coffee, using your laptop or writing in your journal while gazing out to the forest and ocean beyond or star gazing at night. Enjoy a relaxing Jacuzzi under a perfect starry sky. Take in the breathtaking sunsets with a glass of wine from the Jacuzzi or your sitting room. Enjoy a picnic lunch and watch the wildlife from our sunny Jacuzzi deck or in the forested (fenced in) backyard. There is new carpet, fresh cotton linens, extra towels, uncluttered space, a Tempur-pedic bed and a served continental breakfast.
