Guestbook comments from the owner

We just spent a week in your home and wanted to let you know it was the best week we have ever spent in Cambria, and a lot of that had to do with the house. We have been vacationing in Cambria for well over ten years now, and have been renting the house on Stafford directly behind your home on most of those visits. We have always admired the Chatham house and were thrilled that we finally got the opportunity to stay there. Needless to say, it was everything we hoped for and more. Within the first few hours, it felt like we were "at home" and we did our best to treat and respect the house as if it was our home. I certainly hope we will be able to enjoy the coziness and charm of this home from now on when we come to Cambria.

We were a family with young kids and were pleasantly surprised how well equipped this house was - kitchen was well stocked with essential condiments, plenty of bedding sheets, a stroller were some key wins for us. Property Management team was responsive, flexible and handled our reservation, stay and checkout smoothly. Thank you for making our stay comfortable and memorable!

We have stayed here before and the home is perfect for gathering family together. The outside area makes a perfect dining area for all ages. The beach is within an easy walk even if you are carting beach gear for little ones. The property is beautifully maintained and the property management is easy to deal with.

We love this little cottage with the sounds of the ocean, china plates and cozy bedrooms. Our favorite place to hang out is the kitchen! The views are amazing. There wasn't enough soap or toilet paper but other than that it was great.

This was perfect for our family! We meet up with members of our East Coast family here in California. This house is a perfect blend New England charm and beach cool! We were all so comfortable. The house is so well appointed we cooked in, enjoyed the "secret gardens", made a puzzle and watched sunsets for the porch! We will be back!!!

Beautiful historic home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this home for an extended weekend trip with our 15 m/o toddler daughter. Things we liked most about the place are its historic character, the views on the ocean from throughout the house, and the plenty of activities to do inside and outside the house. The house is filled with novelties and you notice it's taken care of very well.

The place was also cleaned well and safe for our child (who likes to explore). Scenic Coast Properties manages the rentals and they've been terrific to work with as well. They were responsive to any questions and did a great job at making us feel home.
