Beautiful Ocean Front Cottage! Right on the beach! Charm Inside, Beauty Outside."""

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 8 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautiful, completely restored Beach Front home. Great curb appeal, but even better view from the ocean side. Private stairs to the beach. Full view patio doors in great room open to let in the sea breezes. Beautiful wood floors throughout. Great surfing right from the backyard. Several additional great surf breaks in short walking distance. Surf fishing from the backyard. Great kayaking. Volleyball area in the cove.

This home is a beautiful cottage built in the early 1900's and has been completely restored and updated with all of the creature comforts you need to relax and make this your get away destination. This is truly a great cottage, but there is no question that being on the beach makes all of the difference in the world! You don't have to walk the kids to the beach! They are there! The hot water shower is right there in the backyard, steps away from the beach. If you have stayed in a home on the beach, you understand! If you haven't, now is your opportunity!

The central coast is the up and coming wine region of California. Templeton, Paso Robles, Edna Valley and even Cayucos and Cambria offer many destination wineries to tour, taste and buy.

If you are not into wine touring, there are so many activities right outside your door. You may decide to park the car and just stay put for the week.

About Lauren Bowin

My mom grew up in this little coastal town and I always wanted a vacation home here. Fortunately my native Texan wife, opted for a vacation home here vs. the Texas panhandle. We love the place and enjoy it when it isn't being enjoyed by others!

Lauren Bowin purchased this house in 1998

Why Lauren Bowin chose Cayucos

Small town with a small town feeling. Great beaches. Great hiking. Great surfing. Beautiful central coast.

What makes this house unique

Stress free. We walk to Morro Bay, about 5.5 miles to the south at least once a week when we stay here. We kayak and surf as much as we can. We walk 1 mile to the north to downtown Cayucos and hang out at Top Dog Coffee in the morning with the locals. Great dining at Cafe Della Via and the Cass House, right down town.

On a practical side, being right on the beach and having the private beach access with a great cove at the foot of the steps is a huge bonus. Cuts way down on the logistical issues of packing for beach activities! Hot water outside shower was probably one of the 'smartest' things we added!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lauren, Just got back to Walnut Creek after a wonderful stay at your house. Everything was perfect except that three nights was too short of a trip!!! We have a new favorite beach house in Cayucos and that is yours!!! Hope to rent again. Mike

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were so accommodating, friendly and easy to work with. The house was perfect! I loved the beach feel of the home and also the beachfront view from the living room was breathing taking. My family and I had he absolute best time and will be a trip that we will talk about for years to come. We highly recommend staying here!

The perfect getaway for family and friends to enjoy each other amidst the glorious beauty of nature. Journey’s End has all of the amenities of home, sprinkled with the sound of waves, a walk on the beach just outside the door, and dolphins putting on a show. Whether you’re looking for peace and quiet or an activity filled vacation, it’s the perfect location!
