Cambria at it’s best. This beautiful and peaceful retreat is located a half mile from the ocean on the south edge of town near Camp Ocean Pines on one of the most unique properties in Cambria. Enter via a long private driveway onto a two acre parcel, part of the pine reserve on the old Rancho Santa Rosa subdivided way back in 1873. From here it is unbroken mixed pine and oak forest down into Strawberry Canyon (directly accessible via a hiking trail starting at the bottom of the driveway) and beyond onto the 500 acre Rancho Marino Reserve (which is not accessible but provides stunning forest views across the canyon. The reserve is leased by UCSB for environmental research and features world-class biodiversity.)
In addition to being on two acres well off the street in an already very quiet neighborhood, it is also in a “banana belt” micro climate. The south-facing exposure and wind-protected orientation makes it one of the warmest areas in Cambria.
The custom 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath home (plus a loft) offers ocean views through the pines and a well-stocked kitchen. Listen to the wind tickling the tops of the trees as you are tucked in by the fireplace enjoying the TV/DVD or Wi-Fi entertainment in the living room, or relaxing in the hot tub and surrounded by nature. It is very common to see deer, wild turkey, fox, and many varieties of birds as you are sipping coffee in the morning sun or using the barbeque on the deck in the evening. In the morning stillness you will often hear the distant barking of a colony of sea lions that haul out on White Rock (also a preserve) that’s just a hundred yards offshore near the mouth of Strawberry Canyon.
And did we mention the birds? Cambria’s rare coastal forest ecosystem is a birder’s paradise and the oaks and pines literally wrap around the Whispering Pines Hideaway, putting many seldom-seen bird species right outside your window.
There is a very quiet feel at this home and you are still within a 5-minute drive to downtown Cambria. Owner lives in the second home on the property but due to the size of the lot and the orientation of the homes, you have more space next to you than you would a typical neighbor. You may enjoy the peace and quiet so much you might forget to experience all the other things on offer in and around Cambria.

When you're ready to venture out and explore the beautiful Central Coast you will have many options close by. Hearst Castle and Hearst Winery, perched above the San Simeon Cove, are a short drive up the coast, and the famed Paso Robles wine country is a quick drive east. Charming San Luis Obispo is a 45-minute drive south and the Big Sur Coast is at your doorstep heading north. Cambria is the perfect starting off point for countless adventures.
This vacation home is located in Cambria. The area's natural beauty can be seen at Cambria State Marine Park and Santa Rosa Creek Nature Preserve, while Cambria’s Historical Museum and Cambria Center for the Arts are cultural highlights. Be sure to check out the area's animals with activities such as game walks and birdwatching.
