Lucerne Drive is the most exclusive ocean-front street this side of the 17 mile drive in Carmel. 613 Lucerne is an address of distinction. You will delight in the incredible views of the rocky shoreline, the Cayucos Pier, and the beach as it stretches all the way to Morro Rock from this outstanding home.
This is one unit in a three unit building. The building is perched on a rocky shoreline cliff that offers an array of sea life and birds that will give you tremendous viewing enjoyment. 613 Lucerne is secluded, quiet, and has wall-to-wall glass to enhance the view. (Children under 11 are not recommended due to danger of the high rocky cliff at the beach end of the property)
There is never a shortage of things to do here on the Central Coast. 613 Lucerne is in walking distance of Cayucos Pier, restaurants & shops. A short drive south to Morro Bay where you may want to walk, drive, or ride along the Embarcadero with its wonderful views of the Bay where you can watch seals and otters at play, or eat at some of the best seafood restaurants you will ever come across, and explore the many unique shops. Maybe tomorrow you will be up for a round of golf at Morro Bay's bayside premiere golf course or one of many other spectacular courses in the county. Discover the entire coastline by driving up world famous Highway 1 right along the cliffs and shores of the Pacific Ocean. Cambria is known for its many unique restaurants & wonderful works by local artists. North of San Simeon you will find elephant seals lying side by side covering the beaches. On up a bit further, Ragged Point is a great place to stop and grab a bite or take breathtaking photographs of the rocky shoreline there. Don't miss Hearst Castle on your way through San Simeon. The castle was the dream of newspaper/magazine magnate William Randolph Hearst, who began the castles construction in 1919 after falling in love with the area from camping there as a child. Take a leisurely stroll out onto the Cayucos Pier where you may see dolphins playing alongside surfers in the waves. Back in Morro Bay you won't want to miss taking a bird watching kayak trip all through the bay, or sail the wild Pacific just beyond the breakwater, where you can get a completely different look at 576 foot Morro Rock and the coastline. Hopefully you have arrived during whale watching season. Montaña de Oro (Mountain of Gold) State Park is just Southwest of Morro Bay and has awesome panoramic vistas. While in Los Osos and Baywood Park you may enjoy hiking through the Elfin Forest or Sweet Springs Preserve, each along the shores of the bay. To the east, you will find our exceptional local wineries offering tastings of famous Central Coast varietals. You may want to learn about our history by taking a tour of a local museum or one many California Missions in our area. Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa was built in 1772. If you have a wild streak, drive on down through Pismo right onto the beach at Oceano Dunes where you can drive along the ocean or rent an ATV to ride the dunes.
Whichever direction you decide to wander, you are sure to have the time of your life!

We had a great stay in Dorothea's condo in "back in time" little town of Cayucos. Thanks to housekeeper Treva, the unit was very clean upon our arrival. Dorothea met us there as she sometimes stays in another part of the condo on weekends. She was so friendly and nice. We all "bonded" right away. We loved her little well-behaved dog Luna also. No problems inside or outside the house, and everything was stocked and functional. There were flowers and welcome gifts upon our arrival. However the best part of the condo is the location right on the ocean as we had a magnificent view whereby we saw seals and sea otters close by and beautiful sunsets almost every night. The weather was so nice and warm that often we picnicked right on the private patio.Great views also from the inside dining room, living room, and bedroom. There are many things to do in the area, such as Moonstone beach in Cambria which has several parks there along a wooden easily accessible Boardwalk, Hearst Castle and nearby seals, Big Sur Hwy one drive north to Ragged Point and onward. We would highly recommend for anyone to stay in this condo. You can't beat the views as they are spectacular. We would go back anytime just to see Dorothea also! She is a jewel! I want to return with my other sister in the future.
This is our second time in this stunning home on the water. We've been here in the spring and fall. Dorothea makes you feel right at home, and it's private and pretty with the sound of the ocean always present - better than any tranquilizer!
Dorothea is so hospitable and friendly and has the perfect setup with a fully equipped kitchen (plenty of dishes, pots and pans, etc.) if you want to cook in and eat outside while watching the most amazing sunsets I've ever seen! Not to mention she greets you with a gift of a lovely bottle of wine (she remembers what kind you like!), cheese, and crackers.
The birds and the whales and the seals - and the pelicans diving for dinner! - are such wonderful entertainment. It's just a short walk to the cute town of Cayucos and the beach. You can't find a more wonderful place to refresh and renew.
Of course we'll be back again!
Thanks, Dorothea, for your hospitality and sharing this beautiful slice of the California coast. It was just what we were looking for, and we are already planning return visits for many years to come. We feel fortunate to have discovered you and your amazing place on the sea.
Back to visit the Central Coast in Cayucos! I LOVE THIS CONDO overlooking the bluffs with views of Morro Rock, the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. I can't get enough and never want to leave the patio! This visit was girl-time, just me and a girlfriend of 40+ years catching up. Grocery shopped for 2 dinners in Los Osos (Ralphs) as grocery store is very limited in town and pricey. Dorothea, property manager, received us when we arrived and left us a yummy bottle of wine, cheeses and treats to start our stay. Wine/chocolate tasting the next day right up the road in Harmony, lunch at the Harmony Cafe (Super Yummy!), and then onto Cambria for the Scarecrow Festival. Back to the condo for wine, cheeses and beautiful sunset and hours playing Scrabble on the balcony with the many stars over my head!! I stayed in the upstairs condo this time which is just as nice as the downstairs. The master bedroom is super quiet and "darker" so you really get a great night sleep! Super Clean condo with everything you may need...kitchen is equipped really well and if you need any assistance Dorothea is quick to respond. BTW: Dorothea lives in a unit upstairs BUT YOU NEVER SEE HER UNLESS YOU NEED HER.
Will be back again, and again, and AGAIN!! Thank you Dorothea!!
What a great place to relax! My wife and I had a 7 hour drive to get here so it was important to us to have a one on one contact with Dorotha. Thank You. We were met at the property with wine, firewood and some goodies for our first night as well as some suggested places to eat and visit. This is exactly what we wanted. Very close to the water which has outcropped rocks that the waves just make the sounds and the views something to just sit with a beverage and watch the sunrises and sunsets. I have many pictures of the trip on our computer to remember this beautiful mini vacation. We hope to do this again with a longer vacation.
You cannot beat the location. This place is right on the water and so private. I never wanted to leave and we spent most of our time on the patio. We were here for my my daughter's wedding and made it a little mini vacation. We went to sleep and woke up to the sound of the waves. It was just awesome. Dorothea was great - very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
