The house is close to the beach but it is not a good beach to relax on.

  • 3 of 5

The house was clean but strangely set up with bedrooms you need to pass through to get to additional bedrooms

Perfect place to have extended family get together

  • 5 of 5

This place is big enough to host a nice extended family outing . It is very close to the beach and all the activity rentals . The place comes with enough utensils to cook those wonderful family meals and we had a good time grilling with gas bbq grill . Game room was hit with the younger crowd .. plus enough bathroom and bedroom space to keep everyone moving and getting ready in time .

Game room being split on its own could be a good or bad depending on the make up of your party , but for our younger crowd having that privacy meant a lot !!

I will definitely consider this place again !

Nice house, not a fan of this beach

  • 3 of 5

The house comes as advertised. Clean and roomy. Well stocked kitchen, just bring your own cooking utensils for the BBQ. Only complaint is that a lot of the electrical receptacles are loose and should be replaced for safety reasons.

The beach is a truck meet. Tons of trucks and jeeps on their way to the sand dunes just to the south. Would be a nice beach for walking and playing if not for all the traffic. We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. We estimated at least a thousand vehicles on the beach over our 3 day stay.

Owner's Response: Hi, David Glad you liked the house. It has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a bonus room. It is one of our most sought-after homes due to its size. There was a loose wire which we have had repaired so thanks for that comment. As far as the cars on the beach, there is actually a California State Park on the south end of the beach. The speed limit for the vehicles is 15 MPH. The beach is the only way to get to the campground and the ATV designated areas/trails. The ATV's are not allowed to come near the houses, actually they cannot even be off the trailer before they get to the campground. Horses are allowed on the beach. I am on the mounted patrol to control the cars/any speeding. This beach has been popular for years, and thousands of vehicles use this beach every year. You came on a holiday weekend, one of the first ones of the year. These activities are advertised both on our website, as well as the paperwork we sent you to read and sign. I'm so sorry that you didn't enjoy using the facilities the beach has to offer. While I can understand that there are a lot of people who just want to lay on the beach and enjoy the quietness, this is definitely not one of those places. This is a very user-friendly beach: Dunebuggies, ATV's, horses, surfers, hiking, fishing, kayaks, great surf break right in front of this group of houses. The hiking trails through the dunes are incredible. There is a stable with rental horses just up the beach. The trees actually canopy over the trails; so many wild flowers, butterflies, deer, etc. In addition, you can rent wagons for hay rides, carriage rides, and dunebuggy guided tours. Again, I'm sorry you weren't able to enjoy these items. We do hope you come again, perhaps next time being a little more prepared and know what to expect. Thanks for renting one of our homes. We also have a few homes in downtown Pismo Beach. There are no such activities allowed on that part of the beach. Perhaps those homes would suit your needs better. Thanks again.
