About Peter and Carrie Ritz

So, how is it that Badgers, people from Wisconsin, own a Cayucos home? One of us was raised in Central California and escaped the summer heat and winter fog by coming to Cayucos. Although family and career took the Californian to Wisconsin, we have returned often to enjoy the SLO life.

We hope you can enjoy our Cayucos home when we cannot be there.

Peter and Carrie Ritz purchased this house in 2017

What makes this house unique

The home offers easy access to Cayucos, Morro Bay and the rest of the Central Coast, but what really got us hooked on our home was the half block walk to a great beach!!

Absolutely Incredible

  • 5 of 5

This home, by far, is absolutely beautiful. It was so clean and immaculate, with not even a spec of dust or sand anywhere in sight - every single room in this home was so clean and pretty; all 3 bedrooms have those wonderful soft, cozy beds; the beach is right there - it's literally no more than a 1 min walk away; the home itself is in a beautiful neighborhood, which always makes you feel so safe; it's a very easy (all flat - no hills) 20 min walk to town, and only about a 3-4 min drive; the restaurants in Cayucos are abundant; however, the kitchen in this home really has anything & everything needed to cook your own meals; the backyard patio is stunning and has 3 different levels, surrounded with gorgeous lush greenery, flowers, table & chairs and benches on each level, adorable outdoor decor, plus there were even water turtles in the stream at the bottom level! And an added bonus was that both the owners and the housekeeper are wonderful communicators and so very helpful and quick to answer any questions you may have. My family and I WILL be back!! Thank you so much Peter, Carrie, and Gayla for sharing your home.... we really, really loved staying there. :)

Pictures do no Justice, Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

First, we had no idea the home had direct views of ocean, what a surprise! Literally a 1 minute walk to put our toes in the sand. House is very clean with modern amenities and stocked for everything we needed to cook. Outdoor shower really came in handy! Would recommend to anyone!

Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was super clean. We loved the games and learned a few new ones that we will be buying for home! The house is wonderfully located close to the beach. Gayla was very responsive to our texts (not that we had any issues while staying there!). A little further from downtown than I’d estimated but my two kids and I walked to it and enjoyed the quaint downtown as well. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Great beachfront property for family trip!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in Peter and Carrie's beautiful home for a 70th birthday get together and enjoyed the updated property's amenities and close proximity to the beach (just 4 houses from the beach parking lot!). The house was well-supplied with necessities and the owners provided detailed instructions about the house and excellent information about local activities. Thanks for a great stay!
