About Ian Starkie at Ciano Real Estate

We both grew up in Southern California and love to juggle and sail. After graduating from Cal Poly, SLO, we stayed in the area, opening a small occupational therapy clinic.

Currently, we live in the downstairs unit of this vacation rental when we are not travelling. We often travel, teaching classes in our professions. Our leisure is usually also taken up with international travel, attending juggling festivals around the world.

Ian Starkie at Ciano Real Estate purchased this house in 2005

Why Ian Starkie at Ciano Real Estate chose Morro Bay

With such a great view from just about every room, this is one of the nicest homes in Morro Bay. We like being close to San Luis Obispo for the world famous Thursday night Farmers Market, shopping, restaurants and outdoor activities.

What makes this house unique

Our property is very easy to get to with just 2 turns off Highway 1. Morro Bay has year 'round temperate weather and is an outdoor enthusiast's heaven. From the Bird Festival in January, to the Parade of Lights in December, as well as car shows, an Avocado Festival and Harbor Festival, there are many wonderful local events to enjoy.

A peaceful place to be

  • 5 of 5
This is an enormous apartment! Its spacious feel reflects the expansive view outside, with vistas of wonderful Morro Rock set against some great sunsets. The apartment has everything you could want (though the microwave took some finding – it’s in a closet underneath the oven!), and the photos on the website fully represent what it’s like now (not always the case, we know...). The beds were large and very comfortable, the heating worked fine when we needed it (this was December); a peaceful place within easy reach of downtown (try ‘Windows on the Water’ for a great meal) and of course all those sweet beaches and coves up and down the coast road. Thank you, Ian.

Great Morro Bay Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
Our group of four adults spent five nights at this property in early January.  The view is spectacular and that alone would rate 5 stars but there are so many good things to say about the place.

The reservations process went smoothly.  Ian was available to answer our questions before we arrived and to prepare the paperwork for us to extend our stay an additional day. 

The unit is in a quiet area just an easy drive from the Embarcadero with all of its dining and shopping but there are several dining options within walking distance, too.   Spencer’s Market has everything you need to take advantage of the well-equipped kitchen.  Try the freshly baked almond croissants from their in-store bakery!  On New Years Day we wandered down to The Buoy Tavern to watch the Rose Bowl with a friendly group of locals. (The unit does have satellite TV but ESPN is not included in the program package. The sports fan in our group might take off half a star for this but I’m not going to.)
 
If you're not afraid of a little exercise you can walk to the beach   There is also a small park a few blocks away and it has a playground if you have children.  The neighborhood feels safe and both of the women in our group felt very comfortable walking alone.
 
The unit is well maintained, spotlessly clean and feels bright and airy.  The beds are comfortable and make for restful nights. We used the sofa bed and the person who slept there rates is as better than most. We had plenty of room and everything we needed to make our stay a memorable one.  We can’t wait to come back.

Superb vacation home with expansive views, everything you could need.

  • 5 of 5
My wife, son (3), and I enjoyed a very relaxing week at this amazing home. The view was always impressive, and as advertised, we could see the whales from the house. We also enjoyed sunsets and cookouts on the deck. The house is extremely well equipped. From an extensive spice collection to cooking equipment, there is probably everything you could ever want. The gas grill on the patio was perfect for enjoying cooking outside. I don't think we closed the windows once, the sound of the surf was evident in the mornings, and the fresh ocean breezes were just what we were hoping for in a Morro Bay home. The home was within walking distance to the beach, probably 3/4 of a mile away. The beds were comfortable, and the home reflects pride of ownership. Although the owners live downstairs, we would not have even known they were there. The home is very quiet and private. There is also a great collection of books, which we found ourselves reading as we relaxed. My son even found 2 books about trains that he was very enthusiastic about. Finally, you could not find a better property manager to work with than Ciano Real Estate and Ian. Every question was quickly answered, and the responsiveness shows their level of commitment to ensuring your vacation rental is everything you hoped for. The pictures are accurate, and the home is very clean. This home is ideally located very close to Highway 1 and all of the activities the Central Coast is known for, from hiking, wineries, San Luis Obispo, and of course the beach. I couldn't have been happier with our stay. With family in Morro Bay, I return yearly, and I would eagerly stay at this home again. It made our stay even more enjoyable with the view and tranquility it provides.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
We had a really pleasant stay in this property!
The unit is very spacious, quiet and clean. The location is good, close to the beach and to a good size grocery store - and about 5 minutes drive to Embarcadero where restaurants and shops are. It's an older home, but everything was working properly and everything was very, very well maintained. We found all we needed in a vacation rental: plenty of clean towels, ice cream scoop, bottle opener, wine glasses, scissors, tongs for grilling... anything you can think of. The beds, chairs and couch were all very clean and comfortable.
We were traveling with our 3 year old and our 1 1/2 year old and both take a long nap in the afternoon. We were specifically looking for a house with a nice balcony/view to enjoy the quiet time while the kids slept and we were not disappointed! The balcony was perfect! Great views, gorgeous sunsets and lots, lots of whales to watch (and of course, they did have a pair of the binoculars - very thoughtful!). There were plenty of small details that made this place feel very homey: a little thermometer on the balcony, lots of interesting books to browse, beach themed coasters in every corner, a small bowl filled with seashells, a beautiful piece of furniture in the kitchen, a stain glass window where the the sun shone through in the mornings... Just perfect for a family vacation!
The rental process was smooth. Ian from Ciano was always quick to respond and very helpful. Everything happened as agreed and it was completely hassle free.
I definitely recommend this rental and next time we go to Morro Bay this house will certainly be our place of choice again.

Delightful vacation home, watched the humpback whales play from the deck!

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay here with our "small" family of six which included two adults and four small children. The location was perfect as it is away from all the touristy areas but close enough to drive to the Embarcadero within minutes, or head to Cayucos within a few minutes as well. It was quiet and safe, and perfect for going running with a view. The house itself had a beautiful view and the binoculars were so helpful for whale watching (in which there were many!). All the amenities were more than enough to suit us- including bath towels, blankets, beds, etc... And the kitchen had all the utensils and bowls/pans/pots to cook all week. We only ate out twice! We even used the grill one evening after playing at the beach all day. The sunset is amazing from the deck. The house was spacious enough for all of us and the agent was very prompt and helpful. We highly recommend this vacation home and would stay here again.

It's only about half a mile to the beach, and six restaurants, a grocery store and a coffee shop are within easy walking distance.

For a restful and fun vacation you'll appreciate the quiet neighborhood, 3 blocks from Del Mar Park, an excellent family park with tennis courts.

Dozens of vineyards and olive farms are within 30 miles. Local attractions include whale watching, kayaking and Sub Sea Tours.
