Overview

About the property

Beautiful, Newly Completed Inside and Out, Enclosed Glass Porch, Fire Pit, Grill

The "Beach Cottage” is located just 2 blocks from the Morro Strand State Beach, a five mile uninterrupted expanse of sand and waves. As you drink coffee in the morning, you can sit at the breakfast nook or on the glass enclosed front deck and watch the waves break with Morro Rock to the South and all of Estero Bay to the western horizon. One can actually see 50 miles of coast; south of Montana De Oro (Point Bishon) and north to Estero Point (north of the abalone farm). At the south end of Cayucos on Ocean Blvd, you are surrounded by headland hills and blue water. Most days you will see local professionals soaring off the tops in their para-gliders, right behind the house, landing on the flat in front of the beach…cool!

The house has been totally remodeled. Walls have been removed and sight lines were considered so that you have views from everywhere in the great room. The deck has comfortable chairs, a table for dining, and a 10’ umbrella for sun protection. The kitchen has a suite of Samsung stainless appliances, quartz countertops throughout, and instant hot water for tea or hot chocolate for those cool, windy afternoons and filtered cold water. The great room offers comfortable seating for conversation or making use of the 50” flat screen Smart TV; Premium Channels package, and sound system. The full bath has top of the line hardware, tub/shower option, water saver loo, and double sinks; storage for your personal beach towels, can be stacked in the ample storage closet. The 3/4 bath also has water saver loo, shower, and sink with storage beneath. The Guest bedroom has a queen bed and is tastefully decorated with a 47" flat screen Smart TV. The Master bedroom has a Cal-King, high boy dresser, and also a 47” flat screen Smart TV.

The back yard has a quiet setting with a water fountain, succulent garden, and a fire pit for those roasted marshmallows and Smores. Gas and charcoal grills are also available . A new storage shed is available for larger toys like surfboards, bikes, or things that DO NOT GO IN THE HOUSE! The backyard is enclosed and lockable. There is no garage privilege. Owners store rental paraphernalia there.

About Greg and Cindy Pierce

Cindy and I grew up in the Central Valley of California and always loved the surf, boarding and fishing. After owning rental homes in Fresno, our home town, we decided to get into the Central Coast housing market with a full time rental in Los Osos in 2000, thinking that it was where we would like to retire, eventually. Fourteen years later, as we closed in on retirement, we were able to trade rentals when we found the Cayucos house. With a vision in our minds and countless hours of watching DIY shows, we hired an architect and a contractor to make our dream reality. In the last month, as we finished our work, we’ve had 4 generations of family spend time with us and, as you can imagine, loved the experience. Alas, we must rent the property to complete the 1031 Tax Exchange rules, followed by a full time residence. We can hardly wait.

Greg and Cindy Pierce purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Greg and Cindy Pierce chose Central Coast

We never thought we could find a home with proximity to the ocean, views, and requirements of 2bd, 2ba, inside laundry, and a garage that was affordable. We just got lucky. When discussing a mobil home with our good friend and realtor, Jeff Blanchard, he asked us what we really wanted and he said, “There is a house…” and we came immediately to check it out. In less than 10 minutes, Cindy was ready for an offer and I said, “Hell yah!!” The financing was a bit complicated, but, long story short, we have been able to remodel the ocean home of our dreams. The house is centrally located on the Morro Strand beach and within short driving distance of many coastal attractions. We hope to move to the cottage in the future, but, for now, we will share it with a few “Ocean lovers.”

What makes this cottage unique

Without doubt, the view, the closeness to the ocean, and the comfort of the home are its unique qualities. The family throws their toys and towels into the wagon and we walk to the beach. Within 3 minutes, we are in sand, shoes off, wind in our face, waves crashing at our feet. Kids are digging in the sand, surfers are working the waves and couples are walking their dogs for miles. Nice place to be!

Aside from beach life, there are a multitude of other activities. World renown wine country with more than 70 wineries to visit and taste. Gather friends and let someone else do the driving. Sightseeing up and down the coast: Hearst Castle, sea lion rookery, Montana De Oro, Big Sur, Artist Colony at Harmony, fine dining in towns up and down the coast, and last but not least, you could simply put your feet up, read a book and relax... the Pacific Ocean stretching for as far as you can see.

Beautiful home, fabulous vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this trip was perfect! Greg and Cindy have a beautiful home and it is obvious they have taken the time to make it cozy for visitors. My girlfriends and I loved having wine on the patio while painting ocean scapes and then by the fire pit to wind down our evening. The home is newly remodeled and absolutely gorgeous! Greg and Cindy were even thoughtful enough to leave a bottle of wine for us to enjoy.

We talked about making this an annual girls trip just to stay in Cayucos at Greg and Cindy's.

I can't wait to come back!!

Most sincerely,

Robbin Quillin

A Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Cayucos is a classic California beach town. We took the dogs for a walk on the off leash beach daily. View & sunsets were great. We absolutely enjoyed our 2 week stay at the beach cottage.

It is fully equipped & well thought out for a family to stay a week or more. The remodel is beautiful and the beachy decor is fun. We really enjoyed the proximity to Morro and some great restaurants. We also highly recommend the zip lining at Santa Margarita Ranch over the vineyard. We have a great time and would go back and recommend to others!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice compliments! Cayucos is "the" classic California beach town but we try to keep that on the lowdown. We feel very fortunate to have found our little piece of paradise and love sharing it with others.

Aside from the easy beach access and its related activities, sight seeing is a favorite of ours. The Central Coast provides a jumping off place for the hidden wonders of Highway One. Driving north, you have mostly ocean views from Cayucos to Hearst Castle to Big Sur to Carmel and return on HWY 101. Described by Sunset Magazine as one of the most beautiful roads in the world. A long day trip, for sure, but something you'll never forget.

Secondly, the Wine Scene in the Central Coast Region is building a reputation for world class libation. Just wandering around the green hills off of HYW 46, near the artistic colony of Harmony, population 23, to Paso Robles gives you more than 70 wineries that have been reviewed with high praise the world over. Gather friends and let someone else do the driving; music and food is available at many of the venues.
