About the Property
Two Levels Of Decks And Spectacular Views Close To Town. Sleeps 11
It is an easy walk to the pier for a morning surf session or a cup of coffee. It is little bit more work walking up the hill after a night on the town, but you can burn off all those delicious calories that you consumed at one of several fine restaurants or wine bars.
Pets are welcome. You can stay in your pajamas and let your dogs have an early morning romp in the covered dog run below the house , or you can soak in the little soft tub jacuzzi, but then they will want you to take them to the beach which is just blocks away. Cayucos loves dogs. The Lioness Club provides 'mutt mitts' at all the public beach accesses, and many local stores will give your dog treats and water. The house comes with pet blankets and towels for your furry best friends. Your pet can bathe in a large sink in the garage next to the washer and dryer.
Photos do not do justice to the view. Everyone who enters just says, 'Wow!' With two master king bed suites, it is perfect for two families or a group of friends who want to relax. There is a Danish dining room set with a breakfront full of fine china if you want an elegant dinner. But the house is meant for fun and relaxation. You can put your feet up and eat in front of the television, or sit at a little table on the top deck and watch all the people below. You enter the house through an atrium with a glass roof and wood deck. It is a perfect place to read a book (or nap) in the sun or stargaze at night. It is a safe and secure place to leave your pet while you are out wine tasting or kayaking. For those who don't like stairs, there is one King suite on the street level close to the entry.

I would like to make this a place where people can bring their pets. My pets love it here as you can see by the photos. But I ask that people apply some kind of flea treatment or are certain that their pets are flea-free. I have the carpets professionally cleaned often and they look great even after raising two orphan puppies here....moreless

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: I spent each summer of my life at Grandma's beach house in Cayucos. I learned how to swim while diving under waves and holding my breath. I brought my UCLA band friends to Cayucos and we marched in the Fourth of July parade for a few years. I brought the Salinas ski club to Cayucos when I was a young teacher. When I became a college professor at Cal Poly, we held faculty retreats at the beach house. I shared the beach house with the San Luis Obispo Symphony while I was in the percussion section. I have always loved sharing my love of Cayucos. My mother always told me I needed to own a piece of property even though I was married, teaching at the local university, and living on a 700 acre cattle ranch. She was very wise and with the money she left me I was able to purchase my dream house on the hill. When I divorced, I sailed off to Mexico and eventually became a college and high school teacher in Ensenada. For years, I had fabulous renters, and enjoyed living here between tenants, then three years ago I signed up with VRBO. It has been a wonderful experience sharing my house with vacation renters. This September I returned to teach at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, so I am now living in my house and making improvements. However, I will continue to rent my house during my summer vacation, holidays, and occasional long weekends.
Why the Owner Chose Cayucos, CA, USA:
I was told you are not supposed to buy real-estate with your emotions, but I fell in love with the house. It was perched on a hill with a huge tree and it reminded me at first of a tree-house. When I entered I just stood and looked at the view. Grandma's house was on the ocean with stairs to the beach, but this view was so much more amazing. I knew that this was where I wanted to be when I was too old to surf. I would sit on the deck with a dog on my lap, my friends, good local wine, and watch the whales, surfers at the pier, and the people below. I pictured the SLO Symphony playing on the huge lower deck. The inside looked beautiful with high ceilings and woodwork, but not pretentious. It looked like the perfect place for the Swedish decor and Danish Furniture that my mother left me. I was a little fearful of making such a huge purchase, but my eldest cousin told me how she and her husband had once sat on the hill where this house was and watched a storm dramatically roll in from the sea. She convinced me to 'Go for it' and I am very glad that I did.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love to sleep on the sofabed in the living room with the town below as a huge night-lite. Or, from either of the master suites, I can wake up and see from the bed how the waves are at the pier, and how many surfers are out. I walk with my surfboard to the break if it looks good, or I walk the dogs to the beach and get coffee and pastry in town. A little market, wine bistro, bars, antique stores, restaurants, and dancing to good local bands are all within walking distance. I have always allowed pets in this house and trust pet-owners to be responsible and caring people. As I write this I have two foster puppies playing in the atrium and a cat sunning himself on the upper deck. I am still in my PJ's so the dogs just went out to the dog run. To the dog run below the house, I have added a little hot tub with an ocean view. Next to the piano, I have added my conga drums, bongos, and marimba so my musical guests can jam.
