I stayed in this house with my family, my parents, and my brother's family in early August of 2006.
It is a beautiful house. Unlike many rentals that are decorated with a mishmash of garage sale scores and Salvation Army reject furniture, this place actually feels like home. The furniture is contemporary and quite comfortable. The view from the house is beautiful; it sits about 150' from the back end of Morro Bay, and from the family/living room, kitchen, and master bedroom, you can see great views of the bay. It is quite literally a million-dollar view, as I'm sure this house would sell for at least that amount were it put up for sale. When you're not looking at the million-dollar view, they have a massive big-screen TV.
Unlike many rentals I've tried, this house has a properly-equipped kitchen, and all the appliances are up-to-date. We have gotten used to bringing all manner of extra kitchen equipment to the rental houses we've tried in the past, but it was unnecessary in this case. There is also a nice gas grill on one of the decks, which does a great job, so long as you keep the wind from blowing out the burners.
The neighborhood is basically quiet; you do hear some traffic from a nearby street, but it is not that much of a bother. The beds are comfortable, and with the use of the room that is accessed from the garage, the house can sleep 8 people comfortably.
The only downside is the steep driveway, which makes the two-car garage into a one-car garage. As well, the house is sufficiently remote that you have to drive to get to any restaurant/store/etc. you want to go to.
On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being best, I would give this house a 9. It's a great place to have a holiday.
