Space 1,200 sq. ft.

Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

I love getting up in the morning pouring myself a cup of coffee and sitting on the front deck watching the sun rise over the mountain tops and listening to the ocean in the background. It is so peaceful in this wonderful neighborhood. The ocean and in my opinion the best beach in Cayucos is less than 100 yards away from the front door of this perfect beach cottage. Everything you need is here just bring your suitcase and a good book. You are walking distance to all the restaurants, shops and saloons. Walking the the beach at sunset and having a glass of wine is a great way to end another perfect day in Cayucos.

Keywords: Quiet neighborhood in the numbered streets. Walking distance to everything in the beautiful coastal town of Cayucos. Fishing, surfing, boogie board, go fly a kite, take a hike, have a nap on deck, roast marshmellows over a fire on the beach. Best place on the Central Coast to spend a few days or months.

About The Owner

My father in-law built this home in the 1960's. My husband grew up coming to Cayucos as a child and our three children spent many of there childhood summers here with me while there father would spend weekends with us. It has truly changed very little in 50 years which is one of the best things about Cayucos. Very safe. I still spend alot of time between here and the bay area which is where I live, only now I find myself here alone more but love it as much as ever.

The Owner purchased this house in 1975

Quiet and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

I did a lot of researching of homes for our 3 week stay. I made the best choice in booking Melanie’s rental. I was familiar with the area, so just needed to know for our stay, that it would be someplace comfortable for a longer type rental and that we would have everything we needed in a home. A huge aspect was the option of having our dogs with us. Thank you Melanie for opening up your home to us. We scored incredible winter weather...75...bonus and had a perfect trip!

Perfect little Cayucos beach house, with great beach access a block away. The house was very comfortable and well stocked! Thank you, Melanie.

Relaxing Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed in this house twice and have loved it each time. The house is quiet, cozy, organized and clean. It is in an excellent location, just a few houses from the beach and a short walk to the little town of Cayucos. I highly recommend this rental.

We had a great four days at Melanie's Cayucos beach house. The house was clean comfy and had the amenities necessary for the family. Visited Avila, Pismo, Los Osos, Cambria & walked the beach. We would definitely return.

Nice property, quiet, easy access to beach.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, lots of kitchen utensils, tv's in all rooms, nice deck. Mattresses are really soft. Didn't bother me, but one of our guests thought they were due for an update. Fan in master bathroom is really loud as well. Minor nits - would stay here again.

A Cayucos Must!

  • 5 of 5

This darling Cayucos cottage rental is a must! Cute comfortable single story home with ample parking (driveway & street parking for guests) and one of the best stocked rentals ever! Kitchen had every pot and pan needed for cooking and all other essentials for food prep, entertaining and serving meals.

Quite peaceful neighborhood, w/a two block walk to the beach and quaint little downtown.

Owner was very responsive, nice and accommodating.

A must for anyone wanting a little R&R from today's rat race, peaceful reprieve after wine tasting at Paso Robles or just a fun family beach weekend.
