We loved all the little touches Mary Anne included with our stay. This was our first airbnb experience so we did not expect amenities like snacks, binoculars, shampoo, towels, coloring books, DVDs, books etc... Mary Anne thought of everything! Her communication was speedy and welcomed. She gave us great tips on Hearst Castle and the surrounding places to visit. My husband and I felt like the room was our own little retreat for the 4 days we were there. Thank you!!

The studio was very nice and centrally located. It was also close to the beach.

This lovely and serene efficiency apartment was everything it looks like it would be in the pictures and Mary Anne had thought of everything a guest could possibly need before I even knew I needed it. The binoculars were a wonderful touch, I enjoyed them so much when I went back to visit the elephant seals. The apartment is conveniently located to the town of Cambria and many activities but in an area that is very very quiet and peaceful. This was the type of Airbnb experience when you leave asking yourself how soon can I go back?

Our stay at the charming studio was nothing short of the description. Mary Anne greeted us warmly and gave us a quick but efficient tour, then left us in respect to our privacy, but was always available for questions. The studio itself is quaint, full of beautiful vintage decor, and waking up to the natural light from the skylight in the vaulted ceiling was incredible. We were provided with everything we could possibly hope for, including a fully stocked kitchen and bathroom, movies, games, yoga mat, umbrella, even a book light! The bed was so comfortable, and the added touches like chocolates left on our pillows and free breakfast items in the fridge were a welcome surprise. The Welcome Manual was extremely detailed and helpful, providing instructions and restaurant/attraction recommendations, and ensuring a safe and fulfilling stay. The frequent drives into town and the beach were very short. Though we checked out early in the morning, Mary Anne was kind to give us a warm farewell. All of these elements prove that our hostess set the bar high for other hosts and hostesses to follow. I not only highly recommend staying here, but we will definitely be making plans to return soon. Thank you, Mary Anne, for making us feel special and for providing us a peaceful, revitalizing refuge from the big city!

It is a very comfortable get away, private, with attention to the details. Well stocked kitchenette and pantry items, and Mary Anne is a friendly and very thoughtful hostess.

We are semi-retired language teacher and contractor who enjoy the natural beauty a that surrounds us. We love to hike and play music (quietly), are friendly and quiet. We also have a home on Maui and appreciate the cultures and people from all over the world. Mary Anne speaks a bunch of languages and writes poetry and books. Ames is a natural fix-it man, soft-spoken and kind-hearted. We call our duo "Simple Pleasures".
