About

Open the front door to discover the surprise of an art-filled retreat — cozy, airy and visually stunning. Perched on the flank of Cambria’s Park Hill, this light-filled refuge is close enough to the ocean that you can see and hear the distant waves crashing on Moonstone Beach. You are just up from Shamel Park, a few blocks from the expansive trails of Fiscalini Ranch and a 15-minute walk from the shops and restaurants of West Village. This home is ideal for a romantic weekend for two, a solo writing retreat, or a fun getaway for family and friends. The open-plan house is surrounded by green space on all sides, making it a quiet refuge with views of the ocean, pine trees, and coastal hills through the many windows. You can also see a huge expanse of stars through oversized skylights. The large deck is perfect for morning tea, afternoon reading or sunset viewing after a day of wine tasting in nearby Paso Robles or a tour of Hearst Castle in San Simeon. Each of the two small bedrooms has a queen bed and bathroom/shower. Two comfy air mattresses with linens are also available. The house is equipped with a well-stocked kitchen, a nice upright piano, WiFi, TV with DVD, cable with HBO and Showtime, many books and a stereo. TOT#6004416

We had a very nice stay here. The cottage is attractive, comfortable, well furnished and well-supplied. There are beautiful views of the ocean and it is in a very quiet location. We enjoyed watching birds from the large windows in the living room. Extremely clean. Plenty of books. We had no issues or complaints. Enjoyed going to the Hearst Castle, Cambria, and several excellent small wineries out of town. We would love to stay here again next year when we come up to Cambria again.

My husband & I spent 4 nights at this unique spot: a comfortable, sweet 2 bedroom, with distant view, & sound, of sea. Eclectic art and souvenirs were everywhere! The kitchen, which was part of the living-area, was easy to use with quality equipment. Had it not been raining most of the time, we would have enjoyed making use of the deck. The only drawback was that the shower in the master-bath didn't work at all well. However, that would not stop us from staying here again!

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at your “art gallery” home. You must have had a wonderful time collecting all those treasures! I loved the quiet location and being able to hear the ocean as well as the wind in the trees. The only thing that was a bit of a challenge was the driveway....everything else was very comfortable.

This home is very special. Sits on the most quiet section of the Cambria Hill facing the ocean and next to the nature preserve. No neighbors on either side of the house so it's SO quiet and peaceful. Very tastefully furnished and appointed. Immaculately clean. Great floor plan. This was our first time staying here, but without any doubt, on our next visit to Cambria this is where we'll be staying if it's available. Just loved our stay here :)

This is a very nice place to spend a few days or weeks! It has a nice kitchen/family room area, two good bedrooms and baths. There are some water views and it's a great location. The master shower could use more pressure. The outside deck could use a clean up. We really enjoyed it!

This is a wonderful home with a very nice view. The house has a cozy feel and is decorated with art from around the world. There is a decent bed in the master bedroom. The queen in the other bed creaks with the slightest motion.The table only seats two and two can sit at the kitchen island, however the stools provided are too tall to sit comfortably. A table for 4 would be a great addition considering it sleeps 4. Thee things are easy to fix. If it were my home I would do so and then our rating would be higher.

We have stayed at the Ampersand many times but since it changed hands there are a few things that should change to make it a good house for 4 adults. The seating arrangement is good only for 3 and there is no place for 4 to sit and eat... unless you are outside eating on your lap. Luckily we are most always 2 and always enjoy our stay in Cambria. New pans would be nice also!

The minute we walked into "Ampersand" it felt like home. We enjoyed incredible sunsets from the balcony sipping wine from Paso Robles while listening to Miles Davis cds. The wildlife is in abundance in the yard. There are wonderful books, cds & dvds to enjoy. The home is well appointed & exceptionally clean. We will return!

The home was everything I expected (and more) from the pictures. If I had to be critical I would say the water pressure in the main bathroom shower was bad!! I know CA has drought issues but the Master Bathroom was so much better! Other than that this was a beautifully decorated house, which isn't common in rentals. The owners have obviously made a special place!! The view was spectacular and all of the amenities made this an awesome rental!! Thanks so much!!

The small size didn't bother us too much nevertheless offered an amazing view of the ocean. The bedrooms lacked empty drawers that we could put our clothes in and the bathroom doors were honestly very hard to use because of the sliding mechanism. The high seated chairs around the countertop in the kitchen also made getting off and on a bit annoying. We usually don't drink, but the generous owner left many drinks which made us feel welcomed. This was my sixth visit to Cambria and the view of this house was gorgeous. Overall the house was great for our stay. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and loved ones. I will be looking forward to renting this house in the future again.

This was our third stay in this home. We love the location and have enjoyed our stays. The home was sold last year and is not as comfortable as is clean and well maintained but the decorations and lack of drawer space for clothing is a downside. We will book another home next year.

The beautiful views of the ocean, the closeness to everything in Cambria, the gorgeous art decor the owner chose, all the extras in the house, everything was just perfect! We can't wait to go back.

The house had a horrible smell of sour food, and moldy smell. There were spider webs on all the furniture, linens didn't appear to be clean on the bed. Had to wash them ourselves and then place on the bed. Towels were the same way. Kitchen was a mess, the fridge had old food and open items that smelled horrible. Over all after cleaning to unit ourselves with the cleaning supplies that we had to purchase. Since there was not much in the house it self. There were no beach towels. We had planned to grill on the BBQ but after seeing the house and the uncleanliness of it. We were afraid to look under the cover to grill.Overall the location had great views, that was probably the only reason why this house was not as horrible. You just need to get a better cleaning crew, as it seemed like all they did was come in and place flowers on the table in the kitchen.

Wonderful!
