We will certainly stay at the Sea Star again! It is a lovely spot, quiet, private, scenic and very close to town with great restaurants and shops. Beautiful, exquisitely clean room, refreshingly decorated with a contemporary sea theme, rather than the over the top ruffles and faux Victorian atmosphere you find in some B&B's. We enjoyed the garden and potted plants, especially the variety of succulents. You can see the ocean from the top garden. We loved our long walk on the boardwalk.

The owners were friendly, helpful and available but not intrusive. We left a precious item behind and Denise kindly mailed it to us quickly.

The room has a small fridge and coffee pot, tea pot. We enjoyed our breakfast in bed tremendously, so nice not to have to dress and traipse down to a dining room full of strangers. We have enjoyed meeting new people at other B&B's, but I really prefer being on our own. The fruit plate was excellent, and so handy to have tea and coffee right away. There was a nice surprise of strawberry jam and lemon curds for the scones, which were terrific.

We appreciated the eco-friendly focus and all the personal touches, robes, slippers, picnic basket, basket of shampoos etc. There is lots of light in the room, and the bed was very comfortable, quality sheets and towels, and lots of pillows for reading in bed. We especially loved the little gas stove in the corner, it was just enough heat to chase off the October chill in the evening. Our stay was only for two nights, but was so refreshing we felt like it was twice that long.

“Beautiful.”

The room decor and the garden attached to the room are spectacular and none of the photos really do it justice. It was so restful and only a quick 3 minute drive from the ocean or the East and West Villages. Really wonderful location if you want to stay in Cambria, be able to travel to all the near by beaches and attractions, but not be in the middle of the tourist areas. The amenities are remarkable and generous, and the owners are very welcoming, kind, and informative. If you are looking for a place to stay that is convenient, comfortable, quiet, and romantic then stay here.
