This is truly a unique property because it is located just steps away from a beautiful bluff overlooking lovely San Luis Bay and the Pacific Ocean. A few more steps take you down to a wonderful beach with gentle surf, tide pools, a safe entry point for kayaks and plenty of vacant sand to enjoy. It is located in the small residential village of Shell Beach, which is a special treat of its own, full of beach bungalows and friendly people. Within walking distance there are several restaurants, two coffee shops, and a grass covered ocean front park with picnic tables and Bar-B-Que Stands.
Day trips from Shell Beach can include visiting wonderful and unique coastal communities up and down the coast and nearby State Parks, National Forest and County Regional parks with opportunities to hike, bike and view wild life. San Luis Obispo County is also an area rich in art, music, and wonderful restaurants. Nearby Central Coast wineries boast some of the finest wines in California and several fine golf courses dot the area.
