This bright and cheerful home boasts of everything that vacations are meant to be. A large garage welcomes *2 vehicles for your stay while the bench seat and long wall rack are ready to hold plenty of wet beach towels and store lots of sandy flip flops.
This is a two story home with the first 2 bedrooms located up a short flight of stairs. The Cayucos bedroom has a queen bed with a NovaForm mattress. Also in this room are a toddler bed and comfortable chair for holding little ones before they fall asleep. The Montana de Oro bedroom has a queen bed with a NovaForm mattress. On the walls of this room are pictures of nearby Montana de Oro beckoning you to take the short drive over there. These two bedrooms share their own bathroom with a shower/tub.

We are attracted to Morro Bay as a quiet fishing village that we use as home base for all that the Central Coast has to offer. The Driftwood House is less than 1/2 mile from the Embarcadero where we walk for clam chowder and bbq'd oysters on the water. While in town we will often drive to the south side of the rock to visit the group of sea otters who float there wrapped in sea weed, then make our way down to the protected beach to catch small crabs, search out sea anemones and watch the waves crash high on the rock barrier that protects the harbor. If we have a few hours on our hands the Morro Bay golf course is a real treat. The large Monterey Cypress trees and stunning views of the ocean and estuary quickly dissolve the frustration of the game.
From Morro Bay we have countless areas and activities to choose from and the only difficulty is deciding where to go next. Often we will drive 5 minutes north on Hwy 1 to sunny Cayucos. After riding our boogie boards and making mermaids in the sand, we spoil ourselves with treats from the Candy Counter or Brown Butter Cookie Company. From Cayucos we can drive up to Moonstone Beach in Cambria to collect driftwood or continue on to San Simeon where the Elephant Seals and their pups put on quite a show!
If wine is something you enjoy, then you are only minutes away from the renowned Paso Robles wine country. Located between Cayucos and Cambria is Hwy 46 which boasts hundreds of wineries including ZinAlley and Opolo vineyards. Many hours could be spent visiting the tasting rooms and festivals constantly going on there.
One of the most spectacular areas of the Central Coast is Montana de Oro State Park which is only 9 miles south west of Morro Bay. This park has over 8,000 acres of rugged cliffs, secluded sandy beaches, coastal plains, canyons, streams, and hills. There are miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails. My family particularly enjoys the towering sand dunes which are perfect for running and rolling down and if you are willing to hike to them, the tide pools are excellent places to explore!
14 miles south of Morro Bay is the quaint town of San Luis Obispo. There are shops, Edna Valley wineries, and the Thursday night Farmer's Market for SLO staples of fun. While downtown be sure to grab a steak sandwich from Firestone Grill or F.McLintock's Saloon and eat like the locals do.
Just past San Luis Obispo are Avila, Shell, and Pismo beaches. Avila is a sure favorite for families with it's low surf, Sea Life Center, ice cream counters and a park. Our family makes sure to stop at the Avila Valley Barn for some fresh fruit, warm pies, hot corn-on-the-cob and to visit the array of animals that are on display there. Shell Beach is where we go for kayak and surfing adventures. Our kids enjoy playing at the Dinosaur Caves Park. And finally Pismo beach is where we go for beach volleyball, miles of sandy beach to walk along, and of course the world famous Splash Cafe! A buttery warm clam chowder bread bowl from Splash Cafe is unforgettable.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We have been blessed with a large, active family and the Central Coast is a place we marvel at God's creation.
Why the Owner Chose Morro Bay, CA, USA:
Morro Bay is centrally located between the beaches of Cayucos, Montana de Oro, Avila, and Pismo. Within a few short minutes you can travel up or down the coast depending on the kind of day you are looking for.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The Driftwood House is in the perfect location. Located only 1/2 mile from the Embarcadero it is a quick walk to fish 'n chips in the evening or to watch the otters play in the morning. The house itself is bright with windows and skylights while warm and comfortable. Open areas allow for everyone to be together or the kids can retreat to their own TV and play areas. The outside balcony is the perfect spot to throw on a sweatshirt and BBQ some oysters while the others play one of the many card or board games available.
