The space

Check-in time after 4 pm till 10 pm
Check-out time before 11 am
We are flexible about these times and will make special arrangements if you let us know your needs.

This is a custom built home. It is contemporary, spacious and comfortable. We welcome children; however parents are responsible for the safety of their children.

Only steps from the Pacific Ocean, you can hear the sounds and rhythms of the sea, breathe fresh salt air and watch weather rolling in from the ocean 24/7.

Cambria can have spectacular sunsets which you can view from the beach or boardwalk, or while sipping a glass of wine at the Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill outdoor patio.

On the beach each you can collect Cambria "moonstones," walk or just contemplate. The ocean is cold, the climate is temperate and breezy-- surfing in wet suit is good, but don't count on swimming on Moonstone Beach. However, San Simeon Cove is 8 miles up the road and is more protected where you can go in the water.

Guest access

You will have a separate entrance, private apartment with your own patio on the lower floor of the building. Parking is upstairs and across the street on a level, off street parking space. You can pull into the driveway to unload, then cross over to the parking space. This is a very safe community; but you should keep your car locked.

Interaction with guests

We will meet you when you arrive and spend a few minutes to show you how things work. We will stock your unit with coffee service and supplies for simple continental breakfast. (fruit juice, bread, coffee/tea service)

We are happy to recommend restaurants, provide information about local goings on and provide menus from local eateries, program information for the local community theaters, map for local hiking trails, etc. Then we will leave you alone unless you you want more interaction.

Cambria is a beautiful place to visit, and Lucie's place is a beautiful place to stay while there. Our hosts were very helpful and gracious. They even invited us up to their place for wine and snacks. Very nice! This is by far the best Airbnb we have stayed at.

Luxurious apartment..the owners live in this multi-story building on the floor above. Very helpful and kind folks. The building is a 10 minute walk from the start of Cambria downtown. Bunch of local shipping, coffee and restaurants there. The beach is literally a 2 minute walk.

The apartment was fantastic. But the hosts were even more fantastic. Some of the nicest people you can meet and really go out of their way to make the stay great. Super helpful. They provided a well stocked kitchen. The apartment is wonderfully furnished. Bathroom was better than some 5 star hotels. Location was perfect for Cambria. If we ever need to stay in Cambria again, we'll definitely come back here.

Beautiful place near the beach and lovely hosts. I loved the fresh orchids in the bathroom!
Lucie User ProfileLucie is a superhost.
Response from Lucie:
Dagmar, Thank you and Wendy for staying with us. Thanks for your comments and glad it worked out well for you both. Regarding your suggestion of stocking some cooking 'condiments', we didn't do this as many people have an issue with using bottles of stuff that has already been opened - but thanks for the suggestion! Cheers, ~Ian

My husband, Ian, and I built our dream home in Cambria after retiring from our careers in San Francisco.

After decades in my own business as a graphic designer & print broker. I now have a second career as a sculptor working in my studio at home. I am currently active with the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art Sculptors Group and have given much time to coordinate art exhibits and further the arts in San Luis Obispo and Cambria. I was born and educated in New York.

Ian retired from Information Technology, started a small business and now spends his time between "honey do" lists and creating fine art jewelry and objects from fused glass. He also volunteers on the local Emergency Rescue Team. He is an avid sailor and sort of fisherman. He is originally from Wellington, New Zealand.

We love to travel (most recently Merida, Yucatan), ski, cook, entertain, make wine, drum circle, spend time with friends and walk our lovely beach.

Our Airbnb space is a separate apartment. We will welcome you in and give any suggestions or recommendations you wish. Other than that, we will leave you alone and it is up to you if you want additional contact.
We live upstairs and are usually available to answer questions or help.
