About

Cambria at it’s best. This beautiful and peaceful retreat is located a half mile from the ocean on the south edge of town near Camp Ocean Pines on one of the most unique properties in Cambria. Enter via a long private driveway onto a two acre parcel, part of the pine reserve on the old Rancho Santa Rosa subdivided way back in 1873. From here it is unbroken mixed pine and oak forest down into Strawberry Canyon (directly accessible via a hiking trail starting at the bottom of the driveway) and beyond onto the 500 acre Rancho Marino Reserve (which is not accessible but provides stunning forest views across the canyon. The reserve is leased by UCSB for environmental research and features world-class biodiversity.)
In addition to being on two acres well off the street in an already very quiet neighborhood, it is also in a “banana belt” micro climate. The south-facing exposure and wind-protected orientation makes it one of the warmest areas in Cambria.
The custom 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath home (plus a loft) offers ocean views through the pines and a well-stocked kitchen. Listen to the wind tickling the tops of the trees as you are tucked in by the fireplace enjoying the TV/DVD or Wi-Fi entertainment in the living room, or relaxing in the hot tub and surrounded by nature. It is very common to see deer, wild turkey, fox, and many varieties of birds as you are sipping coffee in the morning sun or using the barbeque on the deck in the evening. In the morning stillness you will often hear the distant barking of a colony of sea lions that haul out on White Rock (also a preserve) that’s just a hundred yards offshore near the mouth of Strawberry Canyon.
And did we mention the birds? Cambria’s rare coastal forest ecosystem is a birder’s paradise and the oaks and pines literally wrap around the Whispering Pines Hideaway, putting many seldom-seen bird species right outside your window.
There is a very quiet feel at this home and you are still within a 5-minute drive to downtown Cambria. Owner lives in the second home on the property but due to the size of the lot and the orientation of the homes, you have more space next to you than you would a typical neighbor. You may enjoy the peace and quiet so much you might forget to experience all the other things on offer in and around Cambria.

We four humans and our hounds had a memorably wonderful stay at Whispering Pines! The house is full of light, the tall ceilings and windows letting in the wonders of trees and nature. Nicely furnished and maintained, we would definitely recommend Whispering Pines to friends. The staff at Breen vacation couldn't have been more helpful, and went out of their way to make our vacation a pleasure in every way in lovely Cambria. Warmly, Deanna Edwards

We enjoyed Whispering Pines and it's quiet neighborhood. Humming birds and a deer family visiting daily. The spacious views of forest and the ocean in the distance were lovely. We also enjoyed the hot tub, very relaxing.

Wonderful house with lots of windows, skylights and sunlight. The pictures don’t do it justice. It’s a beautiful home. The deck is huge with a sliver of a view of the ocean. You can hear the waves crashing and the seals barking from the property. The WiFi worked well. There is wildlife around the property including wild turkeys. The ocean isn’t far and the Fiscalini Ranch reserve is nearby where you can walk along the bluffs. We were lucky enough to see the gray whales spouts as they migrate north. Great place to relax and decompress.

I stayed at this lovely house last weekend for a well-needed writing getaway. It couldn't have been more perfect for finding inspiration... The large windows brought in warmth, the sounds of the ocean and birds was relaxing, and many doors along the deck brought in a nice breeze- the perfect place to work and relax. I also loved the fairly close proximity to Fiscanili Ranch, where I went for a run every day. A definite go-to again for my next visit... You won't be disappointed!

We have stayed at Whispering Pines several times. This time was, as always, relaxing and enjoyable. The home is beautifully designed and built with lovely interior woodwork. There's lots of light due to large windows and skylights. One morning, we looked out to see five deer grazing next to the house. Each day, we took a walk on the boardwalk along the ocean--it's a short drive away. And at night, we could hear the surf from a couple of miles away. Really a wonderful stay!

We really enjoyed our 4 nights in this treehouse. Very nice to be able to bring our dogs with us. We saw woodpeckers, doves, buzzards, a lot of deer and one coyote wandering around on the hill. The house is very well stocked for cooking. Beds are comfortable and the TV and Internet worked great. We would come back to this place.

This is the third time that we've stayed at Whispering Pines. It's a beautifully-designed home set in the trees. It's comfortable and quiet. This time was particularly peaceful. The highlight of our stay was that a deer family--buck, doe, and fawn came to visit. The buck lay down right outside one of the windows while the doe and fawn grazed outside another window. What a delight!

This is our third stay at Whispering Pines. We really enjoy this home. Its architecture is beautiful, spacious, and quiet. The home feels very secluded in among the trees. It feels like being in a tree house. Everything is clean and in good repair. Breen Realty is very easy to work with. A perfect vacation!

Had a wonderful holiday at Whispering Pines Hideaway in Cambria. At first, we were not aware of how hilly Cambria is and how the houses are built on many levels into the hills. It took us a beat to acclimate ourselves to climbing all the stairs up to the house...but we did get used to it! The house itself is lovely. It's in a perfect location...with more deer than I have ever seen anywhere else. And the deer are not skittish! We have 2 dogs and the deer would just look at them and keep doing what they were doing. We had a few mishaps at the house - the oven stopped working and the toaster/oven wouldn't toast. Breen had us purchase another toaster/oven and reimbursed us...wasn't ideal...but it worked. Property was clean...well maintained. We really had a wonderful stay. Loved taking hikes at the Ranch...the bluffs...loved hanging out in town. Had a great wine tasting day in Paso Robles. All in was a wonderful stay and we would highly recommend to everyone!

Whispering Pines was perfect -- I loved sitting outside on the deck in the morning, watching and listening to the birds. The house is well-stocked, with everything we needed -- plenty of towels, kitchen wares, etc. The location is close to town but feels very private.

Loved the location of this house. It was close to the ocean but secluded enough to feel like the mountains. Saw deer every morning from the back patio as well as woodpeckers and blue jays. The house itself is comfortable, nice kitchen and very comfortable bed.

My family had a great stay at Whispering Pines. The house is truly beautiful. From each of the large windows, we looked out onto trees. There's even a glimpse of the ocean. One day I looked from the kitchen to see a deer grazing next to the house. It looked at me and continued with grazing.

The house is beautifully and comfortably furnished. We didn't lack for anything that we needed. Everything was perfectly clean. The property management company did a completely smooth job and were very friendly. We've rented in Cambria every year for about a decade. This was the best stay yet.

We had an amazing time staying at Whispering Pines. The house was very nice and provided us with everything we needed. It is located in a neighborhood that is home to several deer, many of which walked through the yard each day. Every time we left the house we would see at least three or four deer hanging out in a yard or walking down the middle of the street. It really made our time there even more special.

Since the house does allow dogs, there are some spots on the carpet where it is clear that dogs had accidents. But, since we brought a dog with us, we cannot complain and it really did not bother us at all. In fact, we were thrilled to find such a nice house that allowed us to bring our dog.

Working with Breen was very easy and I can highly recommend them!

My husband, daughter and myself spent 6 days in Cambria, our stay at "whispering pines" was fantastic! The house was very clean, fully stocked kitchen and the views are stunning! Every morning, we'd have our coffee on the deck and deer would come and visit us. We'd hike most days on the strawberry hiking trails (2 minute walk from the house) and every evening we'd enjoy a glass of the most delicious local wine.

Wonderful vacation home!

Lovely, high-quality home in a peaceful and private setting. Our family of four was very comfortable. Loved the living room and hot tub. Thank you.

Lovely home set back away from the road. We were greeted by deer and we walked down to the water.

We couldn't have had a more positive experience - the place was warm and cozy, the house was well appointed, and Brian (owner) was incredibly nice and helpful. We haven't slept that well in ages. Thank you for the assortment of teas!
