About Leslie

We've been looking for a property in this neighborhood since we stayed in a house, in this area 7 years ago. Finally the right one came up.

Leslie purchased this house in 2013

Why Leslie chose Central Coast

I love A-frames, and this one is super close to the beach, on an oversized lot, and has great parking. It's also out of the windy/foggy section that the beach front places have to put up with in the summer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Leslie was so responsive and thorough about check-in and made us feel so comfortable throughout the trip. When we arrived, we were surprised and excited to see that everything we could possibly need was on hand - Leslie had thought of everything! The cabin is located so close to the beach, and the surrounding area is lovely. The cabin itself was cozy and had more than enough room for everyone. All in all, we couldn't have asked for anything better. A truly magical place!

GREAT Get-Away. Comfortable, Affordable Gem

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Helmsman Hide-Away. The ambiance is comfy-cozy-casual with a nostalgic flare. It is situated in a quiet neighborhood, short walk to fabulous beach, tucked out of the winds with an easy back route in and out to Florence old town. Surrounding trees provide a calming mix of dappled sun & shade. Our hosts made us feel welcome with a myriad of thoughtful touches, and our every need was met and exceeded with the home's amenities and well-stocked pantry. The mattress & linens are of noteworthy comfort & quality. We are grateful to owners for being pet-friendly and would definitely stay here again.

3 beach lovers, a kid and a dog from Eugene, OR

  • 4 of 5

We spent a sunny April week-end in this charming, comfortable A-Frame. The description says 1 bedroom, but there is the cutest loft bedroom w/1/2 bath in addition to the large bedroom. This place is furnished much nicer than most rentals so I brought a couple old flannel sheets to cover the lovely sofa and our bed so our small dog could be next to us, even though a pet cover for the bed was provided. We found the house well stocked with everything we needed and more. The large deck just begs for a party. The short walk to the beach allowed us to check out the neighborhood. And being set back from the beach protected us on the day that was very windy. We had a totally relaxed stay and plan to return soon.
