About the Property
The home is offered as a 2 bedroom/2 bath, beach house overlooking the Pacific
The 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 "Tranquility" Bedroom has a walk in closet, a comfy queen bed and soft linens. "Tranquility" bath has a Jacuzzi tub and hand held shower.
The master bedroom, "Serenity Suite" includes a comfy queen bed and a large sitting chair, which makes into a twin bed, perfect for an overnight guest. There is a 30" Flat Screen TV, a gas fireplace, and a library of books, along with a built in kitchenette with a microwave, coffee pot, toaster oven, two burners, & a small refrigerator.

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.

We love our pets and know how nice it is to have them with us when we travel. Please let us know what animal you have so we might consider her/him. We do not allow animals on the furniture and they can not be left in the house without their owners. The house is not well-suited for most dogs because we do not have a fenced front or back yard. Please call us and we can discuss bringing your pet. Thanks...moreless

About the owner: Serenity Within Beach Retreat is managed by mother (Teri Conrad) and her daughter (Kimberly Journagan). Serenity Within was built with relaxation in mind. We have enjoyed sharing the home with family and friends for many years and now we offer it to you. Traveling is one of our passions and sharing our home with guests offers us the ability to travel more often.
Why the Owner Chose Pismo Beach, CA, USA:
Moving to Shell Beach 30 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.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
