Discover our home, Serenity Within, and its extraordinary atmosphere for a tranquil ocean retreat. Offered as a 2 bedroom home, this custom beach house was built with relaxation and affordable luxury in mind. The home offers ocean views from the living room, front deck, and our one-of-a-kind roof top with glass railings.
This awesome, large rooftop deck overlooks the Pacific coastline: View the spectacular sea life while relaxing on your outdoor sectional or dine at our large patio table and barstools. Reconnect with nature and experience a ''birds-eye view'' for whale & dolphin watching! Imagine sunbathing or just relaxing at your own piece of paradise while you watch the pelicans' flight as they search the shoreline for food. Take time to observe the dramatic, constantly changing sky, as the sun and moon cycle daily. At night, Moon & Star gaze!
The upstairs 'living area' showcases stellar views: Upstairs, designated as the "living area", showcases the home's extraordinary views. The large open space combines the living room, dining room and custom kitchen, with ocean views off the front of the house. The second story deck, just outside living room sliding glass doors, offers a great breakfast patio with a granite table top dining set. Perfect for sipping coffee and slowly waking up to the crashing waves a 100 yards away.
Our "Serenity" Bedroom has a walk in closet, a comfy queen bed and soft linens. Serenity bath has a jacuzzi tub and hand held shower.
The master bedroom, "Serenity Suite" includes a comfy queen bed and a large sitting chair that makes into a twin bed, 30" Flat Screen TV, a gas fireplace, and a library of books. It also has a built in kitchenette that includes a microwave, coffee pot, toaster oven, two burners, & a small refrigerator.
Suite Serenity's bath includes a large walk in shower with marble tiles.
(This unit can be rented as a stand alone unit during the winter months - See VRBO 790707).
We do not have a garage but offer parking in the driveway or in front of the house, on the street.
Take a very short walk from your front door (less than 150 feet) to the Pacific coastline, Boeker Cove, and the beautiful bluffs of Shell Beach. Located on a dead end street, Boeker Cove offers a rare opportunity to view sea otters and their young frolic just off the shoreline, in their natural habitat. There are two benches at the end of the street where neighbors and visitors stop to watch the surf crashing against the bluffs, and then roll again out to sea. Its also a great place to sit with a glass of wine and watch our awesome sunsets.
Just steps away, you can continue along the path, where you will find yourself enjoying the quaint village of Shell Beach.

Teri Conrad & Kim Journagan purchased this house in 2001
Moving to Shell Beach nearly 29 years ago was a dream come true! Our family had vacationed in the area for over ten years, spending many Easter and Thanksgiving holidays together in Pismo Beach. As the children grew up and went away to college it became time to explore opportunities to relocate. The rest is history! After living in a wonderful beach cottage for 14 years, our lot became available, and 'Serenity Within' became a reality.
Shell Beach is the ideal location to enjoy all the amenities of a small town community and is just a short drive to anything we need. The community residents are a combination of retired seniors, working professionals, and young families.
Because we are located just a mile from Pismo Beach, another sought-after tourist area, there are spa's, restaurants, and many opportunities to be a tourist by day, and come home to a relax in a serene setting each evening.
Tourists from around the world come to visit our unique location, and many find our little bit of paradise the perfect starting point, while traveling up and down the coast of California. We are located right in the center, 400 miles from San Francisco to the north, and 400 miles south of Los Angeles. San Diego is about 6 hours away.
We had such a wonderful time in your paradise beach house! This was R & R perfection for my wonderful husband home for leave from Kuwait. Everything from the Spa/BBQ to the beautiful bed linens and gorgeous decorative touches - High speed all the way. We so appreciate the beautiful and restful space you have created. Thanks for everything.
Hope to see you again.
The area is beautiful - The house is Spectacular! The bedrooms are downstairs, so they stay cool even in the warm months. The kitchen is well equipped, the BBQ on the front balcony works great. No matter what time of day there is great outdoor seating areas. The party deck upstairs is assume. Zorro's up the street is an excellent place to eat at. Bring your food, sit back and enjoy!
Very nice property at a really great location. It was as described, and the property was very well stocked, especially the kitchen. Its nice to find a garlic press when you need one! We really enjoyed our time there. Only concern was that the hot tub wasn't working, but overall I would highly recommend this home for a wonderful Central Coast vacation.
We stayed for 10 days and it was the most relaxing vacation. We spent time at the beach, lots of walks with great views, good restaurants, shopping, wine tastings, farmers market, live music, massage and so much more. We will definitely come back. The house was very clean and supplied with all the amenities you would need. We even saw whales sporting off our last night along with seals, sea otters and many Pelicans.
Just what we were looking for, a nice well-kept clean house close to the ocean and within walking distance to the beach. Great views in all directions from the rooftop deck which is outfitted with nice furnishings. Owners' attention to detail is obvious. Kitchen and bathroom amenities all provided. Has Direct TV and a modern stereo which was important to us. would likely stay there again.
It was our last minute luck that we found this property. Totally enjoyed our stay and will be back.
Stayed here thanksgiving week as part of our annual family gathering in the shell beach/ Avila beach area. The rooftop deck is fantastic. Almost every day we would enjoy a nap on the couch, drinks in the evening on the high top table with a visit to the hot tub at night under the stars. The sunset views are fantastic as well. Teri is a great hostess who is readily available to answer any questions you may have. The home itself is well laid out with everything you would need. Overall the best rental we have been in during the 7 years we have been coming to the central coast
The village of Shell Beach is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the peaceful surrounding. There is a small downtown area within walking distance, with shops, restaurants, a neighborhood grocery store, deli's, a post office, beauty shops, spa's, coffee houses, and even a store to rent kayaks. Just north and south of the village, you will find beautiful homes mixed in with fabulous Resorts. Just a mile south is the beautiful stretch of world famous PISMO BEACH and its white sand
Less than 5 miles away you will find AVILA BEACH, GROVER BEACH, and ARROYO GRANDE. Drive north nine miles and you will be in SAN LUIS OBISPO, CAL POLY, and our WINE COUNTRY.
PASO ROBLES and the heart of the central coast wine country, is less than a 45 minute drive on North 101. You will find fabulous wineries just 15 minutes from the house in San Luis Obispo, Edna Valley, Atascadero, Grover Beach and Arroyo Grande.
If you take a drive up the coast on Hwy 1, you can visit MORRO BAY, CAYUCOS, and SAN SIMEON, and the enchanted HEARST CASTLE.
