We stayed at the Moonstone Cottages in Cambria for a Honeymoon getaway week. It was a lovely stay and the cottage was just perfect. The breakfast was wonderful and it was worth every penny. Romantic, cozy and simply perfect.

Thank you for your review of Moonstone Cottages. These freestanding cottages are a favorite choice for honeymooners and romantic getaways. There is something extra special about your own little home by the sea. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your breakfast and that your experience was great and we appreciate your comments. We look forward to your next visit.

This beautiful cottage had fantastic ocean views. One morning we woke up and looked out the window and saw a whale spouting, It was breath-taking. The room has a wet bar , microwave and small refrigerator. The sink was granite. There's a fireplace, which really adds to the ambiance. It has a dining table and chairs to sit and sip...

There are three little detached cottages across the street from the beach. Each is decorated delightfully and each has an ocean view. We have now stayed twice in the front cottage and it is amazing. The bedroom an bathroom are nicely sized, there is a small table and chairs and even a little 'kitchen' area with a fridge. Outside, you...

I stayed at the Seascape as a birthday present to myself. I have to say it was the most enjoyable, pleasant stay! I love the peacefulness and tranquility of the cottages. Breakfast brought to your room with a newspaper, cookies when you arrive, coffee, bottled water and a fabulous view! I am so happy I stayed here and will happily...

The photos online do not do these little cabins justice! They are just down the road from the rest of the hotel, extremely comfortable and well-appointed, and just across the street from the ocean. During a road trip up the California coast this was the perfect little romantic overnight spot! The jet tub was a fun surprise, as was the...

The Garden Gate cottage is truly an escape from reality! Fantastic view of the ocean across the street, incredible amenities to enhance the accomodations, breakfast served every morning, and very helpful staff! A touch of paradise!

We stayed in the Garden Gate Cottage, which is in the middle of the property for two nights on our honeymoon. The location is amazing and it's hard to imagine a more private room on Moonstone Beach. The room was clean and comfortable and the jacuzzi bath was fantastic. We are still very pleased that we chose the cottage.

My husband and I stayed here in March for our 10th anniversary, and we've decided Cambria is our new special anniversary destination. The town itself is charming, there is wine-tasting, golf & hiking nearby, Hearst Castle and other sights to visit in the area, and at Moonstone Bay the beach is right there in front of you. Especially in Moonstone...

Thank you for your review of our cottages. Creating a unique lodging experience for our guests was our goal and what better way than your own freestanding cottage? We strive to provide quality amenities and a comfortable experience. We do have soft water in our hotels and if you are unfamiliar with it, it can feel 'slippery'. While we certainly...

We purchased via a public TV auction. Planned 2 nights in the Seaside Cottage and several more at the inn just down the road -- a family mishap elsewhere forced us to leave, very sadly, after one light at the cottage. The cottage -- we got the one closest to the ocean of the tree available -- offered a comfortable...
