My husband and I spent six weeks at this lovely home this summer. We fell in love with this friendly little residential community of Shell Beach and especially with the location, just one house between us and the little park on the ocean. We so hated to leave that we stayed an additional few days.
There are ocean views from the front patio, the living/dining area window and the kitchen window. There were days when we spotted whales from the living room. There were almost always hummingbirds hovering above the window box, and we loved watching the pelicans soar above the sea. We went to the little park to watch the sunset almost every night and we met so many interesting, welcoming people.
It is a small home, but beautifully and comfortably decorated. It was perfect for the two of us and our grandson when he came to visit. The kitchen was stocked with all necessary tableware, pots and pans, cooking utensils, etc. In addition, we utilized the gas grill on the patio often ... the better to enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean.
We often drove to SLO, Pismo Beach, the little downtown area of Arroyo Grande, Avila Beach, etc. There are many wonderful restaurants, farmers' markets, concerts and other events nearby.
There is another apartment/home upstairs, but it is set back, so it is above the bedrooms and garage, not the main living area. We occasionally heard muffled footsteps, but only rarely, and it did not bother us at all. The garage is a tight squeeze unless you have a small car, but there is easy parking in the driveway, also not a problem at all. A new home is being built down the street, but we were never bothered by any construction sounds. I think all of the heavy equipment was no longer needed by the time we arrived. Besides, with the sound of the waves crashing into the shore, I'm not sure that we would have minded anyway!
Kelli promptly handled any small issues that arose (they were few and minor) and was a delight as a landlady. We truly loved our stay and plan on returning.
Excellent location!! ¼ block from the ocean cliff/park and beautiful views. Good amenities, clean and bright. We were, however, disappointed this was not a house as represented. It is a duplex; apartment style living. There is unmuffled people and dog foot traffic and voices from the upper unit. The garage was not usable due to the tight turning radius under the staircase and/or the other tenants parking. (There is good street parking). Also, no dining table, only a bar table for 2 and counter seating. And, unfortunately, there is new constuction, just starting, a few lots down and there was continuous heavy equipment pounding and trucks beeping for 8 hours a day. This is a great location to the local beaches, cliffs and restaurants of PIsmo Beach and Shell Beach but, for the reasons mentioned above, we could not recommend.
We lived in this magnificent house for 4 months as we looked for a new primary house after moving from Chicago to the California Central Coast. It is one house away from a beautiful beach; pelicans, seagulls, otters and humming birds are a feast for the eyes to see. The first question we asked the owner when we arrived is whether she would sell the house (it's a duplex) to us - this was paradise!
Breaching whales can be seen from the front yard. Decorated tastefully and equipped with everything we needed to sleep, cook and enjoy ourselves. We spent many, many hours sitting in the living room with the windows and doors open listening to the sound of waves. Most mornings started with coffee, sitting on the front porch, watching the ocean.
It's only 1000 square feet, so it can't house a big family. For my wife and I and the occasional visiting child or friend, it was perfect in size.
The landlord was a pleasure to work with and resolved every issue we mentioned (there were very few issues) quickly and cheerfully.
We had such a nice stay-cation here! Walking down to watch the sunset with a glass of wine was the perfect way to start the evening and then walking up to dinner, and walking to coffee in the morning - so nice! We really enjoyed the small beach that was easy to get to and far less crowded than Avila. The home was so comfortable and had everything that we needed and more. Only regret not staying longer!
We had a great time! Kelli was extremely helpful sharing great places to eat, and things to do in the area. The house was very clean, neat, decorated adorably, and had all necessities available to us. Ocean views from living room and master bedroom were gorgeous, and falling asleep listening to the waves was mesmerizing! The location of the house was great, close to the freeway, 10-15 min. drive to SLO, and 10-15min to Pismo. We would most definitely recommend this place and will stay again!
Thank you again Kelli!
