Property description

This artist-owned beach house has colorful rooms, each with its own personality. Real oil and watercolor paintings, some antiques, some Pottery Barn furnishings, make it a comfortable vacation home. Walk out the front door and down to the beach, or up Shell Beach Road to quaint cafes, grocery store and restaurants.

In addition to two bedrooms with queen-size beds and full bath in the main house, there is a large family room with television & DVD player. The back yard has a covered wrought iron table & chairs and another redwood set, plus a BBQ. Also, there is a free standing studio with two twin beds and a window seat, and a second full bathroom with new walk-in shower. Excellent if you want to invite another family for a day or two and still maintain your privacy.

There is covered parking with a locked storage shed, plus two parking spots in front.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500
  • Cleaning Fee $100
  • Taxes Included

Notes:

We have a 3-night minimum and the rate is $275 per night. We prefer at least a week-long rental and give preference to month-long rentals. Over the years, we've been a vacation home to many traveling senior citizens who love the peace and quiet of Shell Beach and the convenience of walking for groceries, meals, hikes, and enjoying the Pacific Ocean breeze. The weather is perfect all year round.

Please pay $500 deposit to hold your dates. This will become your security/damage deposit, refundable after you leave. Full rent is paid upon arrival or sooner.


Please wait... Travel with confidence

Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

Car: Not Necessary

What's great about our beach house is you can park your car and walk to whatever you need, designer coffee and a croissant for breakfast, groceries for dinner, a barber and beauty shop to get your hair cut, kayak rental, all right up the road. Chinese food, a new Brew House hangout, hamburgers, pizza, deli, or bar-b-que restaurants all in two minutes walk. Or walk the other way and just sit on a bench and watch the waves roll in at sunset.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are a retired college professor/published author & wood carver, and a writer/artist who bought the Shell Beach house as an escape from our growing kids and home responsibilities. With the recession, we find we need to share the financial load. But we also enjoy sharing our home with travelers and making them comfortable.

Why the Owner Chose Shell Beach:
We have always loved Shell Beach and enjoy spending time up here, driving in to SLO to check out the shops, taking long walks on the sand, spending the day at Morro Bay, or wandering through Montana del Oro. There's a huge movie complex 10 minutes south and an excellent Sushi restaurant nearby. I've been coming to Shell Beach since I was a child and feel at home here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is very quiet. You can hear the surf at night from the bedroom window. The neighbors are friendly and easy-going. On the other hand, the Kayak rentals are up the street and they bring your kayaks to the water for you. We have a new sports bar on the corner. SLO offers a night-time Farmer's Market where local hot spot restaurants sell their signature dishes on the main street. Great biking & hiking, too.
