About Larry and Pam

We have always loved Shell Beach with its friendly neighborly vibe. Vacationing here as kids from the Central Valley of California, we always knew we would live in Shell Beach one day.

Larry and Pam purchased this studio in 2012

Why Larry and Pam chose Pismo Beach

The Village of Shell Beach is the gem of the Central Coast! A short walk to the neighborhood park, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Eldwayen Park provides beach access for kayaking, tide pooling, picnicking or just relaxing. Pismo Beach voted Top Beach Town Destination!! If you choose to dine out, stroll to your choice of many neighborhood restaurants. November through February enjoy the Monarch Butterfly's return to Pismo Beach Dunes.

Take a day trip to the North to experience breathtaking Big Sur. Or head South and check out the wineries. Many are hidden gems.

What makes this studio unique

What ever you choose to do during the day, you can end it on your private patio. Relax with a glass of wine or a cup of tea. Make it easy and Barbecue on your Private Patio! Enjoy the sea air. Stroll a block to Edwayen Park to watch the sunset!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The casita was perfect! So cozy and comfortable! Pam & Larry made sure we had everything we would need to guarantee our stay was a good one! They are such nice people! We want to come back and Tay once or twice a year. We've always stayed a motels, but having a fully stocked kitchen we saved money by eating meals in. I love the Casita!!!

Great location, modern and efficient

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was modern and efficient and is located north of Pismo in Shell Beach. We were there for our daughter’s graduation from Cal Poly and it was an easy drive to SLO. We arrived late in the evening and the owners were very helpful and accommodating. Definitely recommended.

Great Home, Awesome Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, updated place with a nice sized deck. We stayed here in April-May 2018 for a month and thought it was excellent. The hosts, Larry and Pam were great. Any question I had was immediately answered. They keep the place in excellent condition and provided a cleaning service during our stay. Fully stocked kitchen with pots, pans, cooking utensils if you want to do some cooking.

We are from the east coast and have been in the area before, but if you haven't been to Pismo Beach you definitely have to come here. This location is half a block from the ocean. Open the screen door on to the deck and you can see the ocean on one side and mountains on the other side. You will thoroughly enjoy walking down the street to the ocean and seeing the waves coming in against the rocks, sea otters in the water and pelicans flying above you. It is a very relaxing, stress free environment. The street is very quiet, and the neighborhood is very safe. This is a very special place.

If you don't get enough exercise from walking everyday down by the ocean, they have a gym literally a 5-minute drive from the time you close your front door to you walk in to the gym. There are plenty of restaurants and a coffee shop within walking distance to the place. Supermarket, pharmacy and Starbucks are about 6-7-minute drive.

Recommendations: Steaming Bean at the top of street and one block north - great variety of coffee. Ventana Restaurant - Lunch or Dinner is great here and not too expensive, plus the restaurant sits on a cliff overlooking the ocean. San Luis Obispo - 10-15 minute drive, lots of places to eat, bars, coffee shops, stores.

I would highly recommend staying at this property.

Wonderful month at casita!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 30 days at this casita and everything was perfect . Pam & Larry made sure I felt at home and that I had everything I needed.

I really liked the newer appliances , including a new washer and dryer.

I also liked the private entrance to the casita and there is a nice place to park your car.

Hope to stay there again.

Charming Abode in the heart of Shell Beach awaits you. Sunset Magazine recently rated Pismo as one of their ten favorite beaches. Quotes from readers wrote 'We love to visit Pismo's Shell Beach at low tide. See hawks, pelicans and the under covered mysteries in the exposed tide-pools. Fun for kids and adults alike! You may spot an otter or seal! Our guests have spotted Whales breeching while sitting on the Casita Patio having a glass of wine.
