Cayucos house description
Wrap-around decks will entice you to eat or sleep in the sunshine, but you can also sit in front of a cozy fireplace and watch a winter storm roll in from the sea.
It is an easy walk to the pier for a morning surf session or a cup of coffee. It is little bit more work walking up the hill after a night on the town, but you can burn off all those delicious calories that you consumed at one of several fine restaurants or wine bars.
Pets are welcome. You can stay in your pajamas and let your dogs have an early morning romp in the covered dog run below the house, but then they will want you to take them to the beach which is just blocks away. Cayucos loves dogs. The Lioness Club provides 'mutt mitts' at all the public beach accesses, and Kelly's coffee shop will give your dog treats. The house comes with pet blankets and towels for your furry best friends. Your pet can bathe in a large sink in the garage next to the washer and dryer.
Music-lovers will enjoy the piano, and bring your guitars. The inspiring views and high ceilings make the house a perfect place for an evening jam. Gourmet cooks will appreciate the six-burner stove and walk-in pantry. Families with children will like the bunk room that sleeps four, and twin bedroom. However, if you have very young children who like to climb, you might be a little nervous with the height of the decks.
Photos do not do justice to the view. Everyone who enters just says, 'Wow!' With two master king bed suites, it is perfect for two families or a group of friends who want to relax. There is a Danish dining room set with a breakfront full of fine china if you want an elegant dinner. But the house is meant for fun and relaxation. You can put your feet up on the sturdy coffee table and eat in front of the television, or sit at a little table on the top deck and watch all the people below. You enter the house through an atrium with a glass roof and wood deck. It is a perfect place to read a book (or nap) in the sun or stargaze at night. It is a safe and secure place to leave your pet while you are out wine tasting or kayaking. For those who don't like stairs, there is one King suite on the street level close to the entry.

I would like to make this a place where people can bring their pets. My pets love it here as you can see by the photos. But I ask that people apply some kind of flea treatment or are certain that their pets are flea-free. I have the carpets professionally cleaned often and they look great even after raising two orphan puppies here....moreless

This is a beautiful property. Fantastic panoramic views of Morro Rock, Cayucos and north. Our family of 10 and additional visitors had plenty of room to spread out in the spacious accomodations. We appreciated all being able to be in one place for our vacation/reunion. Our dogs loved the run area beneath the house and appreciated the dog beds and treats supplied by Alice. Alice was fantastic to work with and we appreciated her welcome basket and getting to meet her face to face. Thank you for opening your home to us.

Owner response: You are so welcome! Thanks so much for leaving ice cream in the freezer, and thanks for starting the loads of laundry. My cleaning team really has a lot to do to get the house ready for another family in under five hours, and we really appreciated all you did to make it easy. It was a pleasure to meet you both and your beautiful dogs. I hope that every summer I can house sit for a friend in SLO and meet my guests in person.

Family & Graduation
We enjoyed this house and the town of Cayucos tremendously. Used it as a family celebration for a Cal Poly Grad. No regrets about coming North from SLO (about 25 minutes). All ages can enjoy this house. Upstairs bedroom perfect for elderly (or anyone). Master suite downstairs with wonderful view. You do need to know that bunk bedroom and twin bedroom are very much together, so the 6 people involved need to be comfortable with each other. Daybed is in a pass through area for entire downstairs. The kitchen and atrium are fabulous. Folks who want to play ping pong in garage are not at all cut off from the larger gathering on the main floor. At least 4 of us walked back and forth to town on several occasions, but you also do need to know there is a steep hill inolved getting to and from the house. After that, the walk is very easy. This house was simply perfect for our family gathering. Owner is the nicest person. Loved, loved, loved our experience. Longing to visit again.

IDEAL FOR A ROMANTIC GETAWAY IN SUNNY CALIFORNIA
IDEAL FOR A ROMANTIC GETAWAY IN SUNNY CALIFORNIA
What is really amazing about this house is its location and its comfort; you can see it all, the view of the ocean is breathtaking, you can see the town of Cayucos, and you can walk to the beach or to the town in just a few minutes to go swimming in the ocean, go for a candlelight dinner in a nice restaurant or for a few drinks at the pub. This house is ideal for a romantic gateway because you have the most amazing view of the Pacific ocean and you can walk naked in the house and nobody can see you but you can see everything; and what could be more romantic than to have a glass of Champagne by the fireplace contemplating a million-dollar view. You might think why you would rent such a big house for a romantic gateway, because where else can you wake up with the loved one contemplating the Pacific Ocean. Actually, it was hard to decided which of the two master berdoom to choose from, both have high-quality beds as you would find in a fancy hotel. You can also enjoy a jetted tub after a long walk on the beach and a swim in the ocean.

Owner response: Thanks for the wonderful review. Your comments make me want to stop landscaping the dogrun and find someone who knows how to make a fire and open champagne bottles.

I highly recommend this house for your next trip to the Central Coast. The owner is accommodating and friendly. The house was immaculate, well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. We had our two Labs’ with us for the visit and found the house and beach very dog friendly. The dog run under the house is much larger than anticipated and worked well for the day’s we had to leave the dogs at home. The views are spectacular. We enjoyed a nice fire on the cold evenings while looking out over the ocean, sparkling from the moon. In the morning you can watch the fog recede over the ocean reveling a beautiful sunny day. The beach and town are an easy three blocks from the house. I would recommend this house to couples looking for a romantic getaway, Friends up for wine tasting or families looking for some fun beach time.

Owner response: Thanks for the review. I am pleased that when the fog hid the sunset, you enjoyed the fireplace. And of course, I love to hear that I made the dogs happy too.
I spent New Years at this property. Rarely do you get to enjoy this kind of unobstructed panoramic view so close to the ocean. The fireplace was burning brightly and it was the perfect place to play our instruments and sing in the New Year! I awoke at sunrise and was enticed to the deck (just steps from my bed) to watch the the sky turn colors as the light danced across the Morros in the distance and tinged the breaking waves with pink. I grabbed my camera and took some awesome shots before crawling back in my cozy bed for a little more snoozing. The house is roomy and comfortable and accomodated all of us without feeling cramped. The owner is a doll and the house well-stocked with all of the necessities. The dog run was a big plus for those of us traveling with four-legged friends. I have trouble with stairs so it was great to be able to have a bedroom, bath and everything else I needed on the street-level top floor. I recommend this property for a classic Cayucos experience.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: I spent each summer of my life at Grandma's beach house in Cayucos. I learned how to swim while diving under waves and holding my breath. I brought my UCLA band friends to Cayucos and we marched in the Fourth of July parade for a few years. I brought the Salinas ski club to Cayucos when I was a young teacher. When I became a college professor at Cal Poly, we held faculty retreats at the beach house. I shared the beach house with the San Luis Obispo Symphony while I was in the percussion section. I have always loved sharing my love of Cayucos. My mother always told me I needed to own a piece of property even though I was married, teaching at the local university, and living on a 700 acre cattle ranch. She was very wise and with the money she left me I was able to purchase my dream house on the hill. Now divorced, and quite happy living on a 50 ft sailboat in Baja, I am not ready to return and work full-time in Cayucos. I teach at a university in Mexico and travel. I have had fabulous renters over the years, and have enjoyed living here between tenants. I eventually will return to work on the Central Coast, live in my house, and set up my drum-kit in the living room. But for now, it makes me happy to know that I can give others the joy of Cayucos living year-round
Why the Owner Chose Cayucos:
I was told you are not supposed to buy real-estate with your emotions, but I fell in love with the house. It was perched on a hill with a huge tree and it reminded me at first of a tree-house. When I entered I just stood and looked at the view. Grandma's house was on the ocean with stairs to the beach, but this view was so much more amazing. I knew that this was where I wanted to be when I was too old to surf. I would sit on the deck with a dog on my lap, my friends, good local wine, and watch the whales, surfers at the pier, and the people below. I pictured the SLO Symphony playing on the huge lower deck. The inside looked beautiful with high ceilings and woodwork, but not pretentious. It looked like the perfect place for the Swedish decor and Danish Furniture that my mother left me. I was a little fearful of making such a huge purchase, but my eldest cousin told me how she and her husband had once sat on the hill where this house was and watched a storm dramatically roll in from the sea. She convinced me to 'Go for it' and I am very glad that I did.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love to sleep on the sofabed in the living room with the town below as a huge night-lite. Or, from either of the master suites, I can wake up and see from the bed how the waves are at the pier, and how many surfers are out. I walk with my surfboard to the break if it looks good, or I walk the dogs to the beach and get coffee and pastry in town. A little market, wine bistro, bars, antique stores, restaurants, and dancing to good local bands are all within walking distance. I have always allowed pets in this house and trust pet-owners to be responsible and caring people. As I write this I have two foster puppies playing in the atrium and a cat sunning himself on the upper deck. I am still in my PJ's so the dogs just went out to the dog run.
