The Crow's Nest is steps away from the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve, fabulous location! The house was extremely clean and comforatble and being pet friendly was a BIG plus! There are lots of steps and stairs to navigate in this house, so if anyone in your party is challenged by steps and stairs. this could be a deal breaker. But it worked for us!

Our 2nd stay at the Crow's Nest for a week. House is very cozy & clean with everything we needed. Pro's: so close to the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve and amazing tide pools, 10 minute drive into town, beautiful views from porch, master bedroom and living room & jacuzzi tub in back for stargazing evenings... Really like the open floor plan on main level & staff at Breen's Vacation Station are very easy to work with from booking to checking in. Con's poor lighting made it challenging to play games and do puzzles which we love to do on vacation. Also, queen bed in master is hard (densest version of a posturpedic mattress) and too small for a comfortable rental. King sized bed would be so much better! Lastly, it did not matter for us as able bodied, but renters should be aware there are a lot of stairs...
All in all though, we love the Crows Nest and will be back to enjoy bluff hikes and beautiful sunsets again

Spent three nights here with family and our two dogs. Home is in great condition and is nicely outfitted. Two bikes could use some lube but were a fun addition. Not walking distance to town but not a real issue. Located right next to a nature preserve on bluff with multiple trails to walk and exercise the dogs. Would definitely stay here again.

We had a fantastic little trip to Cambria at the Crows Nest. We have stayed at several Breen properties, all of which had strengths. What we loved best about the Crows Nest is how close it is to the Fiscalini Nature Preserve for amazing walks, easy access to tide pools so close, the incredible view from master suite, nightly stargazing from the hot tub, and cozy puzzle time in front of the fire. House is well equipped with anything you need for time away. (Including a toddler gate that came in handy & also a small lamp in the closet that allowed us to do puzzles in the poorly lit main living area...) PLEASE GET A KING BED for the master suite! (And one that isn't so firm!) There is plenty of room and being scrunched into a too firm queen bed is nearly a deterrent to renting this house. Thanks!

The Crows Nest was absolutely the perfect spot for a beautiful and relaxing vacation. Check in/check out and communication was very easy. The location of the house could not be better if you are looking for ocean views and easy access to Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We appreciated the fact that they allowed dogs. We will be back for sure!

The location was great. The home had everything we needed. My only complaint is the bed in the main room is not comfortable and the kitchen cabinets should be wiped down. Some of the cabinets were sticky. Other than that we all enjoyed our stay.

We loved our stay at the Crow's Nest! With ocean views, hot tub, BBQ, and washer/dryer, this place had everything we needed. It's ideally located next to the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve, so morning/evening walks observing migratory birds and sea critters became routine. I also appreciated the wifi and cable TV (vegging on the couch in Cambria is somehow way more exotic than at home!). It's a short drive to Hearst Castle, or the elephant seal beaches, or wine tasting, etc. We'll definitely be back!

We had a wonderful time at this charming little house just a few blocks from the beach. We had beautiful views of whales and other wildlife right out off the deck of the house and though small, this house had everything we needed. It is steps away from Fiscalini Ranch for hiking, biking and dog walking and the home even comes equipped with two bikes for guests to use.

The Crow's nest turned out to be a nice location for three days with the grandchildren! We walked to the tide pools down the street every day. Went on daily trips to Hearst Castle, beach, visiting elephant seals all a short drive away. The neighborhood is quiet. Only glitch we had was no show handyman when we called repair number given for microwave that stopped working. Said he would come next day but didn't. We had no microwave for two days but survived!

We got away at just the right time. It hit 113 degrees at our home the week we stayed at The Crow's Nest. In contrast the temp was in the 60's and 70's here in Cambria. Moreover, this was a wonderful property. Perfect for those with dogs and while there may not have been a direct doorway to the yard, we found a expandable barrier that alllowed us to block off the front entry stairs so that we could leave the front door open so the dogs could access the side yard to do their business and the front porch so they could say hi to all the people and dogs on their way to Fiscalini Ranch. When we discovered the microwave was not working when we arrived they had it replaced the next day (Sunday!) Our only criticisms, which have been mentioned before, had to do with the master bed and the couch. If you are a cyclist this is a great HQ for the many rides in the area. If you want a quick warm up you can climb out directly to the east, or if you aren't in the mood for the 18% grade, you can take the packed gravel road thru Fiscalini Ranch which is virtually flat and allows easy acces to the north entrance to Cambria or Hwy 1.

We had a great stay at Crow's nest and would definitely stay there again.

Even with 2 couples, a baby, and a dog we still felt like we had space to spread out and enjoy the house. The location is tucked out of the way near a gorgeous 400+ acre ocean front preserve, but only a 5 min drive from Main St in Cambria.

The hot tub is great. The grill is great. And the space behind the house made for a fun area for all of us to hang out and enjoy the weather while safely containing our dog and 2 year old.

My only critical comment was that the house isn't set up well for a toddler. There are lots of stairs and opportunities for little ones to fall. Also the house has a lot of kitsch to give it that beach front feel. When we arrived, we immediately had to round up and stash all the coffee table books, magazines, tourist pamphlets, 8 candles, sea shells, lamps, and trinkets that kids can easily damage. Not a biggie, just an FYI for families. The unit did have a kiddie gate to block off the indoor stairs - which we were very happy to have.

Oh finally, we ran out of propane for the grill during our stay. When I called management, they responded immediately and refilled the tank - which was very impressive service for a laid back ocean town.

The location was perfect- near Fiscalini Preserve and with ocean views. The house is well equipped and well maintained. It was not our first visit - and will not be our last.

This is the 2nd home we've rented through Breen and we LOVED the Crow's Nest! Perfect size for us and our two mutts. We had everything we needed in the home, including an amazing view of the ocean and paces away from Fiscalini Ranch. What more could you ask for? We would definitely return to this home. We only needed the master bedroom since it was just the two of us, but it could accommodate more with the 2nd room. Oh and the hot tub was lovely on the starry cooler evening too. Great property!

We had a great time at the Crows Nest. The location near Fiscalini Ranch Preserve was great. We hiked and biked there daily and went tidepooling. The house was perfectly comfortable for a family of 2 parents, 2 kids. We loved the hot tub (big enough for us and our kids but not for 4 adults). The house had a slight odor upon arrival - new paint or new carpet? Open windows helped. Kitchen reasonably well-equipped. Great place!

We brought our dogs and being so close to the Fiscalini Ranch was great. Breathtaking views on our walks and bike rides...the dogs loved it just as much as we did. :)

Family from both northern & southern california converged on Cambria for Thanksgiving. The reservation was made only a month before, so there wasn't much choice left, but this location was just right for us. It's small, but fully functional, and wonderfully located. 3 blocks from the ocean, 1/2 block from Fiscalline preserve, and with very nice ocean views. Nice "extra" touches, mtn bikes to use, really fast internet, washer/dryer, hot tub. The house is very well insulated, quiet and comfy. The closest "negative", except in the kitchen, there are no good, bright lighted areas for reading. Dealing with the property management was excellent, laid back but everything taken care of.

This was our second visit to Cambria and our first time staying in The Crows Next. We loved the proximity to Fiscilini Ranch since we traveled with our Golden Retriever, George. He thoroughly enjoyed the twice daily walks on the upper and lower riidge. The "nest" itself was clean, comfortable, appropriately furnished and welcoming. THe only negative - and it's a small one - are the stairs. The stairway is narrow in this cute little place which was a little challenging for my hussband who has arthristis and slight balance issues. We managed, however, so I would not consider the staircase a deterent in the future.

All ins all, we had a very lovely time and would consider treturning to Cambria and The Crows Nest in the furutre.

I did already respond to this once, so I will be brief now. The place was great and Breen was excellent, but we were very disapointed that the hot tub did not work and it didn't seem that any effort was made to get it fixed. We picked this particular house because of the hot tub. My 3 star rating on question #2 is solely based on the fact the hot tub did not work.

We know what to expect in Cambria but this exceeded our high expectations. The east village experience is wonderful. We have rented homes all over the state with mostly great service. However Breen was by far the best agency we have every used. We will be back soon, not soon enough for my wife however.lol.

Once the fog lifts, the condo has a beautiful view of the ocean and a lovely trail down to the water just a few yards away.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect with easy access to the beach and to the Fiscalini Ranch. We particularly enjoyed our walks through the Ranch. We have been missing the walks since we left. We have two minor comments. It would be good to have a couple of folding chairs available for the dining room table if you have six people staying. Also, the pull out sofa was not very comfortable. It could use some type of an overlay that could be stored away during the non sleeping time.

The property is located adjacent to a huge unimproved natural habitat with hiking trails overlooking the coast. It made our stay even more enjoyable. Very peaceful location and we really enjoyed our stay at the Crow's Nest

I did expect 2 baths and there were 1.5--a few more glasses--only 6 in the cupboards-we were always washing glasses. Great ocean and Otter Cove views. The hot tub was wonderful, but a bit challenging when it came to getting the cover back on the tub. The home is comfy-nice furniture in living area except a comfy chair in the corner would be great for reading and views and something more comfortable to sit in on the deck while enjoying those wonderful views, sunsets and a glass of some great local wine would further enhance the vacation experience. Neighbors were friendly, proximity to the Fiscalini Ranch and trails was great. Rear yard was a safe place to keep the dogs when we were not home-and enough room for 3 cars-one in garage and 2 in the driveway-good to be able to accomodate the no street parking request. Master bedroom views were devine!

We booked this property because it took dogs. The home is lovely, really close to the coast & tidepools, the town of Cambria is cute but doesn't allow dogs on city beaches. LOTS of water sports around in nearby Cayucos & their beaches allow dogs. Close to Hearst Castle. Nice hot tub. Fun. Would have been nice to have access to the garage (we payed enough to be able to use the whole house - the garage was empty).

We had a great time at the "Crow's Nest". The weather was mixed but, the last day and a half were exceptional. Love the Fiscalini Ranch for some good walks. Great spot for two or a family with youngsters.

Cozy house just right size for two people. Hot tub adds to the stay. Close proximitiy to hiking trails and beach exploration.

We enjoyed the wonderful ocean walks, bike riding to moonstone beach, hiking, and listening to the waves crashing on the rocks at night. Property management was exceptional.

The location is wonderful, and the property is clean and comfortable. Be aware of steep steps in the house you'll be going up and down a lot. Great for a small family. The jacuzzi was large and private, and there is a small patio area in the back.

this is a very nice place and in a wonderful location. looking at the ocean from your balcony is one of the most relaxing things to do on this planet. my only problem was the hot tub would not get past 71 degrees but this was not a priority. I was going to call your office but it slipped my mind. my only regret is that I don't live here.

Had a great visit again!

We did overall have a very nice stay. We arrived around 2:00pm but were not able get into the unit until after 3:30pm when we were told we could get in earlier and after traveling over 5 hours we were ready to get into the unit. The towel holder in the downstairs bathroom came off and the there was no bromine for the spa to keep it sanitary minor stuff but over all I think we would rent this unit again.

The location is fabulous--less than a block to Fiscalini Ranch (dog-friendly open space), an ocean view, a nice walk into town (via Fiscalini Ranch trails), also an easy drive to the Hearst Castle and nearby elephant seal rookery, Morro Bay, and Paso Robles (if you enjoy French cooking, Bistro Laurent is wonderful!)
