Very close to the shops and restaurants and 30 seconds from the beach . We had a fantastic time !"

  • Beautiful house, great location

    "We decided to rent the house for a small family reunion/ vacation. Travis was such a pleasure to work with, super responsive and very easy to get in touch with. We stayed 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The house was very clean - the pictures are very representative of what you can expect. Plenty of space - we had 4-5 adults and two kids. We also enjoyed the bikes and being able to ride around town. It's a very cute little neighborhood and walking distance to a few small restaurants and shops. Pismo beach was a quick 5 min drive. We would definitely stay here again."

  • Beautiful Views

    "My wife and two daughters stayed at the property during the last week of June. The owner met us at the home and gave us a quick and helpful tour of the place. The first evening included views of whales breaching the surface and spouting. We have stayed in the Shell Beach community for years and this was by far the best space and location for the money. The rooms are nicely updated and had adequate space for our family of 4. We rarely went out to eat and used the kitchen and barbecue most evenings. The small beaches down the street about 1/4 mile offer more breathtaking views (sunsets) but bring some sandals for the pebbly beach surfaces. All in all, a restful and memorable week for my family."

  • Peaceful, Romantic Getaway

    "We had a Fantastic time! The cottage is newly constructed, clean and fully furnished! The bed was comfy and the bathroom had a wall heater that made it super nice and warm! We were about a 3 minute walk to a view of the beach and just a bit further down there were stairs leading down to the shore. Plenty to biking, hiking, kayaking, laying out at the local beaches, or shopping at farmer's markets. The owners were very accommodating and kind to us. We plan to return soon!"

Experience Adventure

Shell Beach is a unique spot on the central coast. Its beautiful cliffs, calm waters, and coves and inlets, provide ample opportunities for adventure. If you love the ocean, then you will love Shell Beach. Take a sea kayak and explore the fantastic coves around the shore. The calm waters here make it an ideal place to shove off. Learn to surf or boogie board. Or, if you want a more leisurely adventure, take a stroll along the shore and search for tide pools. There are also beautiful shells to be found if you are patient and have a quick eye. There is a reason it is named Shell Beach after all.
