Positives: ~~~ Spectacular, panoramic ocean and white-water views. ~~~ Three-minute walk from door knob to toes in the water! (9 houses) ~~~ Unobstructed views of the hills, Cayucos’ historic cemetery, and Highway One. ~~~ The best all-around location on the Central Coast. ~~~ Large, comfortable, spacious 2,800 sq. ft. house. (Average 3-bedroom beach house is about 1,500 sq.) ~~~ Duel outdoor showers. ~~~ Ample parking! 2-car garage and long, brick drive. ~~~ Large, 3 BR/3-bath house, NOT a condo, bungalow, motel room, or typical small beach house. It can easily handle several families! ~~~ Elevator for moving luggage and tired bodies up & down. ~~~ Wet Suits of varying sizes & boogie boards.
Negatives: ~~~ We get some road noise as our beach house is the last house sitting on the side of a small hill overlooking Highway One, but it’s that location that gives us our truly spectacular, 290° views (see our pictures) of the ocean, hills, and Cayucos’ historic cemetery, so to most folks the trade off is a no-brainer. That same hill makes our driveway a little steep, but on the plus side its length does give us more parking than normal. It’s possible to park up ten cars in our garage, turn-around, and driveway.
Our beach house might be the only one that has been secret service approved when a congressman’s family picked it for their vacation. You’ll know why the moment you get out of the car and look back at the waves rolling in, and the views just get more spectacular from the second floor. Poised on the finger of a hill in such a manner you won’t see the cars on the street below when sitting in the living room, but you will see the wind moving the tree tops and watch the surf roll in. You’ll think you’re in a big tree house that has wall-to-wall windows from living room to dining room. From your perch you’ll be able to watch the kids run all the way to the state beach and watch them boogie board, fly kites, play in the water, or surf. White-water views and watching the sun rise above the hills in the east and sinking over the ocean on the west are just a small taste of the joys of this house. Wildlife is another. It is not unusual to see deer or turkeys on the hills to the north or sea otters, sea lions, or pods of jumping porpoises ... and yes, even breaching whales during their migrations. You can start your day with coffee on the deck watching the sun come up or the fog swirling around the hills and Morro Rock and over the water or end it with a glass of wine while you watch the sun go down over the ocean. Come and enjoy the simple pleasures that can only be truly savored in one of the last charming small coastal towns left in the nation … a charming small coastal town with near perfect year-round weather.
The state beach is just nine houses down 24th Street, about a three-minute walk, with an unobstructed view straight down the road all the way to the beach. That means you can sit on the deck and watch the kid's play at the beach, and when they get back from building sand castles, they can wash the sand off in twin outdoor showers. The BBQ chef can replenish their energy with great meals to get them ready for their next adventure.
Spacious accommodations for ten, and each room has its own flat screen TV. The master bedroom has a king bed, private bath, and its own private deck with stunning views of the ocean, hills and historical cemetery that dates to the founding of the town. The 2nd upstairs bedroom has a queen with its own bath and views of the hills. The super large downstairs bedroom also has its own bath and patio with great views of the breaking surf through double French doors. It sleeps six with a queen bed, double twins, and a queen futon. The rental comes with fully equipped kitchen and all linens.
Cayucos has location, location, location for great outings! Big Sur starts a few miles north, just as you pass Hearst Castle. Wine tasting in some of the best wine estates in all of California is just minutes away in any direction, including wine excursions on the bay. Antiquing, whale watching, visits to the elephant seal rookery at Piedras Blancas, touring the San Luis mission, or watching world-class performances at Cal Poly's Performing Arts Center all await you. You could even go shell collecting on the miles of beach that starts just a few feet from your door. From fine dining to shopping and everything in between, your family will create lifetime memories in our small town. Don’t take my word for it; take CNN’s who ranked Cayucos number one in the NATION as “America’s coolest small town”!
If you need the easy access that comes with single-story homes for a loved one, you don’t have to give up the views that come with a two-story home because this house has an elevator! You owe it to yourself and your family to at least spend a week with us. Customer loyalty speaks volumes; we have a very strong return rate with most summer visitors immediately booking for the next summer. We’re the best value on the market. Come and see why. We might be just what your family needs to have the best vacation ever.
***Be forewarned, the driveway is steeper than it looks. Cars do park on the steepest part, but you’ll definitely need to engage the parking brake and consider blocking the wheels. It's a small price to pay for the best all-around location and views in the area.

Cayucos Vacation Rental - 2285 Cass Avenue
We loved the home, very beautiful but homey... what a relaxing week. Will definitely rent again... thank you so much!
Fantastic vacation at an amazing location. . The house is beautiful and the views spectacular
The house is beautifully appointed with everything you need for a great vacation. You can walk straight to the state beach or downtown. There is even a lending library for people who just want to relax on the deck with a great book and a great view. We loved it!!!!
Loveliest, best-maintained house on the central coast
What honest, kind owners these are! When they lowered the price of their rental months AFTER we scheduled our visit, they insisted that we get back the difference plus tax. They are also responsive to every need. When I mentioned that the two twin bed mattresses in the downstairs bedroom made for a less than comfortable night's sleep, they had new mattresses delivered within the week. Unbelievable! This spotlessly cleaned house is lovely in every way and accommodates ten people. That's a rarity for this area. Our family was just there for a four-day weekend, and I can hardly wait to get back there for a week this summer. It's a home away from home!
It’s not possible to share just how much your GREAT review meant to us, and being one of our regular, year-after-year guests, it is especially meaningful to earn your praise. Linda and I had intended to send you a personal thank-you note for passing on the heads up about needing new twin mattresses. We checked them out, and you were instantly proved right. We’re a little ashamed we missed it ourselves! We had to go out of town for a few days to help our granddaughter, and Michelle, the owner of Highway One and our rental agency, said she would tell you we had ordered new ones. Your great review got posted on VRBO before we could send an email thanking you, but it sure was a delightful surprise to Michelle, Linda, and me, so now we’ll give a public “Thank You” and also thank you for always taking such great care of our house! You folks are owners’ dream guests ;- )
Amazing beach home
Loved the property and especially how close it was to the beach! Had an amazing stay at this home!
This place is wonderful. It's right off the freeway and a short walk to the beach. The sunset view was amazing. The cost was very reasonable and it's a great looking home. I will definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends.
The property was perfect for our family and the weather was amazing!
The property was open and spacious for us, both girls/spouses and our grandson, who lived bed the short walk to the beach. We will come back!
