Fantastic Room!

The hostess, Denise, has thought of everything and more! Wished we had stayed the third night instead of spending $100 for a room in Paso Robles. Stay there!

Cozy, Modern, Privacy

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. 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 also liked the tart yogurt with homemade granola. We appreciated the eco-friendly focus and all the personal touches - robes, slippers, picnic basket, original art, basket of shampoos etc. There is lots of light in the room, and the bed was very comfortable with 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.

Charming Cambria Getaway

5 on September 03, 2013

The Central Coast is a lovely place to visit, and The Sea Star makes it all the more charming. The Brill's have created a mini-paradise of relaxation, with incredible views and thoughtful touches. The private patio is an oasis, whether for reading, reflecting or talking. And the upstairs deck boasts the best sunset views in town. Inside, The Sea Star is beautifully furnished and exceptionally clean and comfortable. It's the small things that make you not want to leave - the French press, the fruit platter, the robes and slippers, and the maps of the beach walks. Plus, the area - in town in Cambria, or down the highway in Morro Bay, Paso Robles and other spots - has nearly everything you could ever want to do in a weekend. Or, if you'd rather spend an evening at "home," hearing the waves crash and the seals bark, The Sea Star is the place.

A relaxing getaway

Our stay was wonderful! Denise paid close attention to detail in preparing for her guests. We were able to rest, unwind and enjoy the town.

A Hidden Gem

My wife and I were there for our 22nd Anniversary. The Sea Star was very clean and cozzy. We met Denise when we got there and she was very nice and showed us around the house. We felt like we were at our little home away from home. Very quiet and comfortable. My wife liked it so much we are planning on going back next year! Thank you Daniel and Denise!

About the innkeepers

Art and nature are our passions and we enjoy a casual life by the sea. We love hiking around the local area as well as travelling to unique places in the world. We have lived in France debriefing people working for relief and mission organizations for several years and want to share our retreat place here in Cambria with others.
