We stayed just overnight. Down for a kidless weekend of wine and Hurst Castle. We stayed in the third cottage which wasn't supposed to have as good of a view as the other two if I remember correctly, but I think it might have been the best of the three. The first one is more public facing right onto the... More

Just returned from The Seascape.....first cottage - no. 1 across from beach. It is right on road, but did not change how great the location was. Breakfast was delivered to the room.....beautiful room....saw lots from our room....and headed down to see the harbor seals in the morning. Ate at Sea Chest....was a great restaurant. Will definitely return.

It was time for an escape and I found the Seascape Cottage on Moonstone Beach. Perfect place to spend special time with one's self to regroup and re-energize the mind, body, and soul. Four days of heavenly bliss: sunrise and sunset over the Pacific, waves rolling ashore like a sleepy lullaby, amazing food at The Sea Chest Oyster Bar, serene... More

While planning our anniversary get-away this year, I found some Trip Advisor reviews for Moonstone Cottages, and was immediately enamored. I booked our trip, and off we were for a stay in the Garden Gate Moonstone Cottage, one of three cozy cottages in Cambria. From the street the cottage looked TINY, but when we opened the door we were transported... More

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.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
