About the property

Single Level Contemporary 4 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home Right On The Beach

Welcome to Pelican House, a one-of-a-kind beachfront/oceanfront home offering the most amazing views and best location in all of Morro Bay. Unlike other oceanfront or beachfront listings, there are no streets or dunes between our home and the ocean. You are truly oceanfront when a high tide can bring waves within feet of the house! We are that close!

This home is cantilevered over an ocean beach bluff so it feels like you are floating above the beach. From the moment you walk inside and see the expansive views from numerous full length plate glass windows, feel your worries and concerns melt away! It is a “Wow” every time! The heart of the home, the fabulous kitchen, boasts state-of-the-art, stainless steel GE Monogram Professional Series appliances, granite countertops and dark cherry wood cabinets. Every imaginable kitchen gadget is available to create gourmet meals and you won’t even mind doing the dishes since you gaze out over the ocean right in front of you! There are also two large electric opening skylights high above the kitchen island which allows for fresh ocean air and the soothing sounds of the ocean to fill the house. New hardwood Koa wood floors flow throughout the home giving it a warm homey feel. All four bedrooms have closet organizers and remote controlled fan lights in the room. The two bathrooms have new vanities, gorgeous new tiled showers, a free standing soaking tub in the master bath and skylights that open so you can hear the waves. The living room has a striking contemporary gas fireplace for those days when cozing up to a fire is the order of the day. There is a large dining room table that easily seats 8 and a nearby bar with 5 bar stools allows casual dining. The remote controlled electric shades in the living room, dining room and master bedroom make it a breeze to open the blinds in mere moments. There is a large contemporary fire pit on the patio overlooking the beach and is the perfect place to share stories and watch the sunset.

You will truly feel like you are on vacation at a high end resort whenever you walk in the door and it will be hard to tear yourself away from the scenic beauty of this home when it is time to leave.

The ever changing beach in front of this amazing home is a popular spot for surfers, kite surfers, paddle boarders, kayakers, horseback riders, shore fishermen, beach combers, and beach goers of all ages. View the numerous shore birds, pelicans, ocean birds, sea otters, seals, and dolphins which all call this area home with the high powered, professional Swarovski spotting scope. You can also view the majestic whales that pass through every year making for spectacular, awe filled moments. To the north of this home, just steps down the beach, is a rocky area that has magnificent tide pools during low tides where you can search for starfish, anemones, mussels and other fascinating creatures. A pleasant walk south along the beach brings you to Morro Rock and another short walk from there takes you to the vibrant downtown of Morro Bay with its many shops and restaurants. On the other hand, if you walk north along the beach you will soon reach Cayucos where you can explore the quaint downtown. You will never tire of watching the sunsets from the comfort of the couch or standing on the deck and be mesmerized by the brilliant sinking sun. We are also providing surfboards, boogie boards, a skim board, beach chairs and beach umbrellas for your enjoyment. If you are into bicycling, we have 3 multi-speed bicycles and helmets for your use.

About Robert and Paula Coomer

The owners have lived on the Central Coast for 29 years and are both California natives. They met at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and married 2 years later. They've raised their 3 children here on the Central Coast and feel fortunate to have lived in such a beautiful area.

Robert and Paula Coomer purchased this house in 2008

Why Robert and Paula Coomer chose Morro Bay

We purchased this property in 2008 and couldn't believe how lucky we were to be able to purchase one of the most unique properties on the Central Coast. We've made all the improvements and upgrades with the intentions of living here some day. We’ve put our hearts and souls into making this property a relaxing oasis with no thoughts about putting it on the short term rental market. However, after staying at numerous VRBO’s around the world and appreciating others sharing their homes with us, we decided to share our home, too. We know the upgrades and condition of our home will far exceed your expectations. We consider this our second home, not just a vacation rental.

What makes this house unique

Our home's unique cantilevered construction literally floats over the bluff and beach. This home is probably the most unique and recognizable home in the area. The home sits about 15' above the beach on a bluff with nothing obstructing its views up and down the beaches. There is only one next door neighbor, leaving three sides open and spacious. We designed the driveway for plenty of off-street parking which is unusual for beach front properties. The interiors are updated, upgraded and ready to impress. Beach access is immediate as the home's property corners go down onto the beach. The views of Morro Rock are spectacular and unobstructed from almost every part of the house and patios. We've spotted migrating whales, dolphins, otters, seals, etc. and with our spotting scope, you can get up close and personal! The North Point Natural Area is right up the street and has newly constructed stairs to take you down to the beach and tide pools.

Well Appointed home in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This true 4 bedroom home is fantastic. The owners are very thoughtful of their guests in the kitchen supplies, providing bicycles and good instructions. They are also a text away to answer questions. The kitchen is a cooks dream with all utensils, gadgets and supplies needed for those who love to cook. We also loved being able to easily ride bikes into the town of Morro Bay. I enthusiastically recommend this home.

Pelican filled the bill : )

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Pelican house. The house and its furnishing's were great. The master bedroom with its own bathroom and patio were very nice. The ocean view and beach were thoroughly enjoyed. Owners were easy to communicate w/ re any ?'s we had before arrival. Very friendly and quick to respond.

Another wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We love it at Morro Bay and time just flies when we stay at the Pelican House. This is our third stay here and each time, we are always impressed with how luxurious and amazing this house is. The Coomers are really great to work with and welcoming. All the amenities you need are at the house. And we are completely spoiled having the beach footsteps away, and being able to see and hear the waves every moment. You really don’t have to leave the house. But, when you do, the beach is so peaceful here and the sand is clean and soft. We love walking along the shore and looking at all the sand dollars scattered around. Highly recommend staying here for your next vacation!

When you're ready to venture away from Morro Bay, some of the best wineries in California are just minutes away. If you don't want to drive, call one of the local wine touring companies such as The Wine Wranglers and they will pick you up right here. After a day of wine tasting, come back to your beautiful vacation home and relax with one of the special bottles of wine you purchased.

San Luis Obispo is a short 15-20 minute drive south on Highway 1 or head inland to visit the vibrant Paso Robles downtown area. Don't forget to visit the sea lions just north of San Simeon at the special viewing area. Another must see is the world famous Hearst Castle. San Simeon is a short beautiful, breathtaking drive up the coast.
