Sparkling single-level three bedroom home in the heart of Shell Beach (north Pismo Beach) awaits you. Located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, Pismo Beach is Central California's Classy beach town with miles of white sandy beaches, local wineries, and custom cuisine. Celebrated by Sunset Magazine as one of their ten favorite beaches, readers write 'I love to visit Pismo's Shell Beach at low tide to see hawks, pelicans - and sometimes spot an otter.' Shell Beach is located on the ocean side of Highway 101 within walking distance to the beach and two grassy parks overlooking the gorgeous Central Coast. 'Jagged cliffs add drama at Shell Beach in Pismo, CA' writes Sunset.

Close to award-winning Central Coast wineries, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Pelican Point and sandy Pismo Beach and pier, Shell Beach offers fun activities for all ages. Beautiful hardwood floors and brand-new windows & blinds throughout the house showcase black cottage and wicker furniture. Fenced yards and a spacious deck in the landscaped backyard offers privacy for relaxation or outdoor dining. New roof, front porch and exterior paint enhance the charm of this location.

This beach home offers a comfortable, relaxed environment for families or a romantic get-away vacation for two at the beach. Well-behaved, quiet pets and children are always welcome. We have wireless high-speed internet! Sunset Magazine's July 2009 issue rates Pismo's Shell Beach as one of ten favorite beaches by their readers. 'Away from it all in Pismo. Why I love it: it's 77 steps down the cliffs to this small and uncrowded beach in Pismo. Bring down a great picnic.'

About Robbin

We are a family with adult children who love to visit the Central Coast where all of our extended family have permanently relocated.

Robbin purchased this House in 2005

Why Robbin chose Pismo Beach

We love the beautiful Central Coast region with its magnificient ocean views, sandy beaches, wineries, restaurants and shopping. Shell Beach/Pismo Beach is so relaxing and peaceful. Our neighborhood is on the ocean side of Highway 101 with beautiful homes and friendly neighbors. Friends and family easily visit our home as we are centrally located between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

What makes this House unique

Our favorite activities while staying at our Shell Beach home are the long walks around the nearby cliffs and neighborhood with spectacular beach views, grassy parks, and convenient park benches. Sitting with a glass of wine at sunset or morning coffee as the ocean comes alive with sea otters, seals, and pelicans cruising by are highlights. We also love long walks on sandy Pismo Beach from the pier down to the base of Grand Avenue - where you can still drive your car onto the beach. Wine tasting at the world-class wineries around Paso Robles is great fun followed by a delicious dinner at one of the fabulous restaurants in the area. We happily allow well-behaved dogs so those who stay with us without pets please do understand that we do our very best to clean up after our furry friends & we appreciate your understanding.

The area is very safe and beautiful with plenty to do within walking distance, and the house itself has a great fenced in back yard area and a small fenced in front yard area which was great for sitting out later in the afternoon when the sun started to go down. Robbin was also very responsive if we had a question and let us know of anything we needed to be informed about ahead of time. I definitly recommend this propert for a relaxing stay at beautiful shell beach!
