About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 6

Enjoy a relaxing, carefree vacation. Our newly remodeled two-story home features a spacious great room, which includes a chef’s kitchen, dining area and living room. The living room is furnished with a 6 foot couch and a 42 inch LCD TV with a Blu-Ray player. Hardwood floors and multiple, expansive windows embellish the sense of space in the great room.

The kitchen has been upgraded with granite counter tops, Bosch dishwasher, new stove/cooktop, refurbished cabinets, and a new kitchen island. The highlight of the great room is an attached sunroom/patio, which has great views of Morro Strand, the water, Morro Rock over the rooftops, and the famous Morro Bay sunsets. This is a perfect place to sit back and enjoy the evening.

There are two bedrooms, plus a bonus room which doubles as a third bedroom. There are queen size beds in each of the bedrooms, plus a daybed + trundle bed in the bonus room. The downstairs Master bedroom is very spacious.

Photographs of local attractions (Montana de Oro, Morro Strand, Morro Bay State Park, Paso Robles Wineries, Cayucos, the Tolosa Mission, and Harmony) decorate the walls, and provide ideas for places to visit. The beach is about a 10 minute walk, and there are several restaurants within walking distance of the house (Surfside Pizza, Lolo’s, and Taco Temple). There is also a wonderful dog park within walking distance.

Our house includes two single car garages, one is available to guests. There is also additional off-street parking if you have two vehicles. A washer and dryer are available for use, and located in the garage. There is also a wrap-around, fenced yard, which offers privacy and security.

We have included all of our favorite amenities in the house, including coffee makers, Chef’s knives, WIFI, Weber kettle style Bar-B-Q, gas grill. Try several different styles of coffee in the Keurig coffee maker. The house is the perfect launch point for adventures in the wine country, great beaches, and local points of interest, including Hearst Castle, Monterey, Montana de Oro, and the Morro Bay Embarcadero.

Why Stephanie Arakaki chose Central Coast

We purchased this property because we have vacationed here for almost 50 years. The house was wonderfully located, with panoramic views from the upstairs. We've upgraded and renovated the interior so that we would feel at home here. We hope you will as well.

Great stay in Morro Bay

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was perfect for us for the month of August in Morro Bay. All the amenities you would want for a longer stay are here. The kitchen is beautifully stocked with pots, pans, bowls, heavy silverware, cups, spices, some oils, keurig coffee, and other items other guests have left for you to enjoy. I did a fair amount of cooking and baking while we were there and it was great. The area has no shortage of fun things to do. We walked on the beach which is a short walk nearly every day. There was lots of marine life--otters, seals and even dolphins escorting us on our walk a good many days. We even saw whales one day from the sunroom at the house. Nearby is cute Cambria and Moonstone Beach, wine tasting in Paso Robles, Montana de Oro and much more. We had a great vacation. The neighborhood the house is in has a family atmosphere and seemed very safe. Respect the neighbors show for each other was evident by how quiet the area was most of the time.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay for our winter getaway! The owners have put a lot of effort into the property to make it welcoming and comfortable, which my husband and I really appreciated. It was just the two of us and our two dogs - we only needed the upstairs area; bed/bath, and "great room," with enclosed deck. But there's a lot of additional space downstairs! (Also nice to be able to do laundry....) The fully functioning kitchen was wonderful; we had the option of cooking in, or enjoying any of the nearby restaurants. (Taco Temple - yummmm! And it's walking distance!) We appreciated all the recommendations in the book - very handy. It's truly a great location! And just outside of the immediate area, it's literally a 20 minute drive to San Luis Obispo, and about 45 minutes to Paso Robles. (Wineries - yay!) And we fell in love with Fiscalini Ranch Preserve - the walking path is incredible, if you want to be near, but not actually on the beach.

The house is well maintained, and in a safe neighborhood. We enjoyed relaxing every day on the elevated enclosed deck with our coffee, watching the distant waves, and the general pace of life in the neighborhood. It was nice to give the dogs the freedom of the fully enclosed yard as well. We also walked the dogs all around the neighborhood - the people were friendly, and it felt really welcoming.

We're planning to go back next January, and would like to stay longer! We highly recommend this vacation rental.

Beautiful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The home was a perfect quiet get away. The view of Morrow Bay was tranquil and relaxing from the sunroom and form the other upstairs rooms it was a beautiful view of green rolling hills. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook at home which is what I prefer most nights. We did enjoy a tasty meal at The Galley which I highly recommend.

I went on this trip to get away and chill out after a stressful few weeks of my mom in the hospital, then losing her and planning her funeral. Being in such a serene place as Morro Bay and in a home that was beautiful and comfortable was just what I needed. It was a little slice of heaven.

Roomy Comfortable Home With A View

  • 5 of 5

This house has plenty of space. The downstairs bedroom and bath are private. The upstairs bedroom where my husband and I stayed was very comfortable with a nice bathroom. The kitchen has EVERYTHING that you may need to cook - which we did. Plenty of spices and other staples in the cabinets. The sunroom was a nice treat - on a rainy day we turned up the freestanding gas stove and cuddled down for a pleasant evening. Nice view of Morro Rock from this room and the dining room.

The television system was VERY confusing for us. Perhaps the battery in the remote was low but we had a terrible time getting the cable to run. Perhaps it is just us.

We would highly recommend this rental. We would definitely stay again.

Excellent Vacation Rental -- A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

This VR was way better than we actually expected for the low price for a week's rental. The interior has been beautifully remodeled. The furnishings are lovely and well thought out. The kitchen is spectacular: not only is there a lot of granite counter space and fabulous new cabinets, the owners have furnished it for people who cook real meals. It has everything, and I mean everything: plenty of quality cookware, sharp knives, every utensil and appliance. The Keurig and k-cups were a great surprise. Although we brought our own, it was nice to see another VR owner (besides us) who supplied oils and basic seasonings, too. The beds are comfortable and clean. The house is in a great neighborhood (we enjoyed walking our 3 dogs every day). The yard easily contained our 3 large dogs: the fences are very high and secure (that was the most important thing to us). Everything was super spotless, too. We enjoyed sitting in the glassed-in patio room and also in the large living room (the photos don't do it justice; it is a great space and has a wonderful seating area to watch the flat screen t.v. or just to enjoy the view). The downstairs master bedroom is also large and is well decorated. This was our 7th VR rental in a year; we travel at least 25% of the year. As VR owners ourselves, we're a bit "fussy" -- and we were absolutely delighted in this Morro Bay vacation rental.
