About Owner, Marian Salsbury

My husband and I bought this home near the beach access so we didn't have to fight sand. This home is literally 15 feet to the sand, but I don't need to wash my windows daily. This home is highly desirable by large groups because it has a large family room and good sized rooms. This is a great home for short or long term stays. We remodeled this home, decorated it in 2007 and it turned out to be one of our most highly sought after homes, 15 feet to the sand! We named it Vista Del Oceano because it has fabulous views of the ocean, across the street from access to sand, only 15 feet to beach access. We love this area! It is a wonderful get away from all the hustle and bustle in every day life. We have several other places in Pismo Beach just up the road on Hywy. 1. We also have several things in Colorado as well.

Why Owner, Marian Salsbury chose Oceano

This is a 23 mile sandy, flat beach. There are tons of things the area has to offer, winter or summer! Walk to Pismo Beach or ATV in Oceano! The Oceano Strand side of Pismo is a drivable beach... 15mph. Early morning walks are fabulous for miles. Collect whole sand dollars as you walk this beach in early a.m. any time of year. In the summer, people escape the heat of north, east or south. Tired of crowded and hassle-filled airports, delayed and cancelled flights, traffic, lines, and long hours on Greyhound in the sky? See if this sounds better. A two or three-hour drive along the Pacific ocean, through wine country to a little paradise called The Gold Coast. In beautiful Pismo Beach or Oceano, you will be in the middle of a 23-mile long crescent-shaped beach, walking distance to a few restaurants, shops, and the Pismo Pier. You can paddle a kayak amidst the otters and pelicans, catch some waves on your long board, ride ATVs or horses on the sand, have a campfire and roast marsh mellows at night, or tour the wineries just minutes from downtown. And if you would rather just relax, use the front deck to relax, watch from above, read a good book, enjoy the nice ocean air, take chairs out and watch what rolls by or waves that roll in.

What makes this house unique

In addition to spring or summer, the locals know that the best-kept secret on the central coast is winter. It’s when the calm, clear and the quiet arrives and the crowds thin. On many days, if you didn’t look at the calendar, you would swear that it was summer. It’s why Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s at the beach is one of the smartest holiday decisions you can make. But book well in advance, because the secret is getting out! Book early for large groups or long term rentals!

Guestbook comments from the owner

12/11/10 - 1/11/11 Wonderful house, beautifully furnished and accommodated. Convenient to every thing. Wonderful services from Dennise! Recommended the hour to friends coming in March 2011 from Yew York and Louisiana. We did beach walks and thoroughly enjoyed the home with our family and friends from France, England, Louisiana. We enjoyed Old Juans, Modonna Inn too but most of the time we cooked in the wonderful kitchen. Thank you Marian and Dennise!

Great 4th of July trip

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a 4th of July celebration. We were steps from the sand and there were fireworks going off everywhere. It was an experience I will never forget. The house was well stocked with towels, sheets, pillows, blankets, kitchen supplies, etc. Great location, very close to town and beaches. Neighbors were very friendly. I would recommend this rental year round, but for a super special and unforgettable experience, I would recommend it for the 4th of July.

Family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

My two sons and their families joined us for 12 days at the beach. The dunes begin literally across the street, and there are ocean views from the front deck and kitchen areas. The home is well equipped with towels, sheets, beds, and kitchen necessities. We had enough parking space for three cars. The neighbors were considerate and we had no problem with noise during the night. I would recommend this home for a good family vacation.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Perfect! I have stayed many places and this home is very nice. Didn't expect alot considering it was so close to the sand dunes. The owners have done a great job decorating and providing almost everything you need to feel comfortable. Truly steps from the beach. We had a group of 9 and there was plenty of space. Hope to stay here again.

Our 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our family to meet and celebrate our 50th Anniversary. There were eleven of us, six adults and five children. Nicely decorated and a quiet and comfortable home that had everything we needed. A long dinner table seated us well for our dinners. Steps to the beach delighted the children and the well used balcony off the living area gave us a partial view of the ocean. The vehicles driving to the sand dunes was no problem. We all had an enjoyable weekend at Vista Del Oceano and thank the owner for sharing her home with us.

Owner's Response: Happy 50th! Thanks for the wonderful handwritten letter as well. It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay at our home. We'd enjoy having you back on another trip to the Central Coast. This is truly what we strive for, to exceed expectations, have our guests build fond memories and return time after time, year after year.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The beach was literally 15 feet away from the house. The owner was quick to respond to all my questions. They had everything you could ask for in the house.. from beach toys to beach chairs. They had a lot of sleeping space too! My family had an amazing time, we are sure to come back again next summer!

Beautiful Home to rent!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are impressed with how close it really is to the beach without being ON the beach, literally 15 steps from the sand! The linens are very nice, full size shampoo/conditioner in each bathroom (nice touch!) and the towels are very large and fluffy! The deck that has a partial view of the ocean was perfect for morning coffee and drinks before dinner each day! Our kids ranged from 17-11 and they had an absolute BLAST! ATVing on the Sand Dunes is in walking distance and there are 3 restaurants that you MUST visit (Mo's, Hoagies and Juans!) It feels more like a HOME not a rental and that is what makes it SO SPECIAL!

This is a three bedroom, 2 bath home. This is where the owner vacations as well. Our home is literally 15 feet to the sand and beach. It is across from the access to Pismo State Beach, corner of Strand and York. The home is walking distance to Pier Ave. and ATV rentals and several small restaurants.

Wine tasting is within 15 minutes, Sand Dunes and beach is an easy short walk, activity is out on the beach, ATVs can be rented locally. Beach horse back rental near by. Great home for gatherings. Fire-pit in the back yard or on the the beach. Great location for vacation, family/reunion get away, Cal Poly graduation, etc. Highly sought after for large or small groups.
