Sparkling single-level three bedroom home in the heart of Shell Beach (north Pismo Beach) awaits you. Recently celebrated by Sunset Magazine as one of their ten favorite beaches, readers write 'I love to visit Pismo's Shell Beach at low tide to see hawks, pelicans - and sometimes spot an otter.' Shell Beach is located on the ocean side of Highway 101 within walking distance to the beach and two grassy parks overlooking the gorgeous Central Coast. 'Jagged cliffs add drama at Shell Beach in Pismo, CA' writes Sunset.
Close to award-winning Central Coast wineries, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Pelican Point and sandy Pismo Beach and pier, Shell Beach offers fun activities for all ages. Beautiful hardwood floors and brand-new windows & blinds throughout the house showcase black cottage and wicker furniture. Fenced yards and a spacious new deck in the landscaped backyard offers privacy for relaxation or outdoor dining. New roof, front porch and exterior paint enhance the charm of this location.
This beach home offers a comfortable, relaxed environment for families or a romantic get-away vacation for two at the beach. Well-behaved, quiet pets and children are always welcome. We now have wireless high-speed internet! Sunset Magazine's July 2009 issue rates Pismo's Shell Beach as one of ten favorite beaches by their readers. 'Away from it all in Pismo. Why I love it: it's 77 steps down the cliffs to this small and uncrowded beach in Pismo. Bring down a great picnic.'

Shell Beach/Pismo Beach is a beautiful Central Coast beach town on the ocean side of Highway 101 - located 10 miles below San Luis Obispo, 1 mile north of the world-class sandy Pismo Beach dunes and pier. Recently celebrated by Sunset Magazine's readers as one of their 10 favorite beaches, Shell Beach is a quiet, secluded beach away from it all in northern Pismo Beach. Our neighborhood is friendly, quiet and relaxing - perfect for easy walking with your morning coffee or evening glass of wine to the grassy areas overlooking the Pacific ocean. Perfectly located park benches are placed overlooking the water for viewing seals, sea otters, pelicans and sea gulls.
Other Activities: World-class wine tasting in Paso Robles and Santa Ynez Valley, kayaking
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We are a family with adult children who love to visit the Central Coast where all of our extended family have permanently relocated.
Why the Owner Chose Shell Beach: We love the beautiful Central Coast region with its magnificient ocean views, sandy beaches, wineries, restaurants and shopping. Shell Beach/Pismo Beach is so relaxing and peaceful. Our neighborhood is on the ocean side of Highway 101 with beautiful homes and friendly neighbors.
Friends and family easily visit our home as we are centrally located between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our favorite activities while staying at our Shell Beach home are the long walks around the nearby cliffs and neighborhood with spectacular beach views, grassy parks, and convenient park benches. Sitting with a glass of wine at sunset or morning coffee as the ocean comes alive with sea otters, seals, and pelicans cruising by are highlights. We also love long walks on sandy Pismo Beach from the pier down to the base of Grand Avenue - where you can still drive your car onto the beach. Wine tasting at the world-class wineries around Paso Robles is great fun followed by a delicious dinner at one of the fabulous restaurants in the area.
