Overview

About the property

Cottage style (attached), 2 Bdrms, Max 4 people

This is truly a unique property because it is located just steps away from a beautiful bluff overlooking lovely San Luis Bay and the Pacific Ocean. A few more steps take you down to a wonderful beach with gentle surf, tide pools, a safe entry point for kayaks and plenty of sandy beach to enjoy. It is located in the small residential village of Shell Beach, which is a special treat of its own, full of beach bungalows and friendly people. Within walking distance there are several restaurants, two coffee shops, and a grass covered ocean front park with picnic tables and Bar-B-Que Stands.

Day trips from Shell Beach can include visiting wonderful and unique coastal communities up and down the coast and nearby State Parks, National Forest and County Regional parks with opportunities to hike, bike and view wild life. San Luis Obispo County is also an area rich in art, music, and wonderful restaurants. Nearby Central Coast wineries boast some of the finest wines in California and several fine golf courses dot the area.

Keywords: This two bedroom one bath attached mother-in-law style property fronts the Pacific ocean and has a beautiful and charming simplicity that allows one to fully enjoy the seaside setting and its friendly village neighborhood. The ocean views from the porch, living room and master bedroom are stunning and make each day a special and intimate experience of living by the sea. You will never forget watching sea otters swim on their backs or the graceful procession of California Brown Pelicans gliding along the waves.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This property is breathtaking, and the owners were very pleasurable to work with. I took a mini sabbatical (3 weeks) here at this property and it was just what my soul required. It was perfect in every way. I have been looking for places to go for my next one for 2 weeks this time, but I just can't find one as quaint and perfect as this one. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, I honestly didn't want to leave. The sunsets were priceless, and the walks were fabulous. San Luis Obispo is right up the road for the the commercial/touristy interests. I mean there was nothing bad about this place and everything fabulous. I hope to return again soon.

Five Star Location, Five Star Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

I am hesitant to write this review simply because I want to keep this gem all to myself, but that would be unfair to the amazing owners! This 2br/1ba "mother-in-law" unit is a perfect home base for anyone looking to explore the wonderful and quirky beach cities of the Central Coast. Located on a bluff overlooking the Pacific, this unit has an inspiring location (the sound of the waves, the view of the sunsets, the grandeur of the rocky coast, the caw of the gulls and clacks of the pelicans soaring overhead...) and a beautifully appointed, comfortable interior. Sitting on the deck each night, sipping a glass of wine and watching the sunset, walking the beach below each morning as the fog lifted, and watching for sea otters and seals from the porch made for a perfect location for our week-long get-away. The unit has super easy access to Pismo, Shell and Avila Beaches and is only a 15 minute drive to downtown San Luis Obispo (make sure you go the the SLO Farmers Market on Thursday nights!). The interior is lush, with comfortable couches, chairs, beds and bedding, the kitchen has everything you need (and even some things you didn't know you needed) and they even have a flat screen satellite TV! The unit is on a somewhat busy corner (the local kayak touring company meets their classes on the beach below the house), so during "regular business hours" there will be people slowly cruising the view, walking their dogs, and jogging along the path, but everyone is welcoming and friendly. All of that dies down right after sunset though, so it is serene and peaceful enough to keep the windows open and listen to the crashing waves as you fall asleep. We honestly can't say enough good things about this property, its location or the owners (who were a joy to interact with). If you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful spot on the Central Coast, this is it!

Perfection in Pismo!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property in

This property is breathtaking, so calming, quaint, and peaceful, and the owners were also very pleasurable to work with.

I rented this property in September of 2016 when I took a mini sabbatical (3 weeks) and it was just what my soul required. It was perfect in every way. I have been looking for places to go for my next one for 2 weeks this time, but I just can't find one as quaint and perfect as this one.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself, I honestly didn't want to leave. I fell asleep to the sound of the ocean practically every night. The beach is literally a stones throw away from the property. The sunsets were priceless, and the walks were fabulous. San Luis Obispo is right up the road for the the commercial/touristy interests. I mean there was nothing bad about this place and everything fabulous. I hope to return again soon.

Charming Casita with Spectacular Views!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners have paid attention to details providing welcoming and tastefully appointed accommodations. The kitchen is well stocked, the bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and quality linens. The location can not be beat! You are within steps of a beautiful, accessible beach area and you can enjoy spectacular sunsets from the unit, both from inside or relaxing on the front porch.

This is not a stand alone unit but the design of the home provides for privacy. The owners are very respectful of their guests and are available should a need arise.

We highly recommend this rental. We look forward to staying again when our travels have us back in wonderful, calming Shell Beach.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this 2-bedroom unit for a week in August 2015 and am very glad I chose to do so! The owner was helpful and available, and the accommodation was even more charming than it appears in the pictures. Shell Beach was steps away and you can listen to the ocean all day and night. Beautiful sunsets from the front porch. Nearby there were several restaurants, a quaint coffee shop was within walking distance, and the town of Pismo Beach and the pier was a quick drive away. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental and will be visiting again soon!

Wonderful location, very pleasant accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This rental is perhaps even better than the photos posted on the web site and is everything that the description states. The views are truly incredible and nothing beats watching the sunsets from the bay window of the eating alcove or from the porch or sitting on the benches atop the cliff. The stairs are right there should you want to walk the beach.

The place itself is light, neat and spacious with a welcoming feel.

There are numerous venues for dining even within walking distance and a great gourmet provision store near by. Of course the main attraction is the awesome beauty of the Central Coast and this rental is very conveniently situated to allow you to launch on a discovery of the area: amazing Montana de Oro State Park, the dunes of Pismo Beach, the wineries of Paso Robles and energetic SLO. The owners have carefully compiled a dossier of suggestions for activities and dining options that proved very helpful.

In conclusion we were extremely happy with our week long stay and would definitely recommend the property.

A Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a month. The weather was great, the views were great, the sunsets were spectacular! We are avid golfers, and the location is great for the numerous golf courses in the area. There are many fabulous restaurants, and the landlord has a list of the good restaurants. There are many farmers markets in the surrounding cities to stroll about. The casitas was decorated so nice, it is just as the photos depict. The kitchen has all the appliances and kitchen gadgets a person could need. The bedding was comfortable. Even tho it is a casitas, we were never disturbed by the landlord, She was just an e-mail away if we needed anything
