About Tina Tapply

About Us - There are 3 of us that chose Cayucos as our vacation spot for the month of January in 2011. We are friends that go back 52 years when we met in Carson City, NV at the Ag Aviation Academy and have remained close friends since. We have been traveling buddies to many wonderful destinations - Portugal, St. Lucia, Mexico, Hawaii, Costa Rica, France, Italy, Amsterdam, Belgium and England. Joanne lives in a loft in downtown Fort Collins, CO and is an active Realtor for 42 years. It's dangerous traveling with Joanne because we end up wanting to buy property every where we go. Buz and Tina are retired and moved into a patio home in Fort Collins, CO. Buz has been a crop duster for 40+ years, and Tina has retired as an Administrator for a large assisted living facility.

Tina Tapply purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Tina Tapply chose Cayucos

We absolutely fell in love with Cayucos. It fits us perfectly! Buz has a 1934 Chevrolet 'Bonnie & Clyde' hot rod that he has completely restored and has entered into wonderful car shows throughout the area. We love the sleepy little retro town and the beauty of all of the Central California Coast along Highway 1.

What makes this cottage unique

The little retro/vintage town of Cayucos (Population 2500) is half way between Santa Barbara and Monterey, CA. (110 miles N of Santa Barbara & 100 miles S of Monterey) It's 20 miles from San Luis Obispo where it is easy to fly into. It has just built a new terminal and there now are direct flights from Denver and expected to expand to other cities. Cayucos is just N of Morro Bay and just S of Cambria. There are a lot of hiking trails with every one offering a different ocean experience.

We had a great time in January! Great weather, nice accomodations and access to all kinds of activities....beachwalks, antique shops, restaurants, wineries, etc. We explored the coast from Santa Barbara to San Simeon and inland to Paso Robles. We plan to return!

Cozy & Clean & Has It All!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in our "home away from home" in Cayucos. We went to local farmer's markets to pick up produce to create many gourmet meals in the kitchen that has everything. We watched movies on the large screen tv by connecting up our iPad to it. We walked out to the pier to watch whales and dolphins jumping out of the sea. We collected sand dollars while walking along the shore. We read books in the comfy chairs and couch. We hiked Montana de Oro, strolled Moonstone Beach, listened to melodic local bands in many venues on the Central Coast. Tasted delicious wines at Opolo Winery, and Firestone beer at the Brewery, and tasty Italian meals at Cafe Della Via. The location of the cottage was perfect. The decorations and furnishings quite tasteful. Tina & Megan were immediately responsive and helpful if we needed anything. Our stay was so delightful. We look forward to returning again. We have so much joy and appreciation for our vacation time spent here!
