RELAXED SOPHISTICATION, 100 STEPS TO THE SAND... A MUST SEE!!!!

Morro Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

There is no place like home …until you come to Melaleuca…Your home away from home, in Morro Bay.

This is a vacation home you will talk about long after your departure...We have several families that now come twice a year so please take a moment to read our reviews as our previous guests are our best promoters!

The fall and winter (monthly) dates are booking now. Also if you are interested in visiting us during holidays or Cal Poly Graduation it is a good idea to book early as these dates go really fast. Contact us early so we can block your dates.

We are a ONE MINUTE WALK to MORRO STRAND STATE BEACH AND THE CLOISTERS BIKE/BEACH PATH. Enjoy the ocean views from our living room and walk to the beach in less than a minute. You can hear the sound of the waves, smell the ocean and enjoy the most amazing sunsets from our living room.

Our beautiful vacation home is new to VRBO. It is open and airy and is perfectly situated for two couples and/or families with children. Also we are a single story and we are kid and animal friendly as well. Our 'Kids Kave' is a fav spot for the young at heart!

The Cloisters bike/ beach path is perfect for taking a leisurely stroll in the morning, walking your dog and or a casual bike ride towards town. For our “Active Animal Lovers” 'Dog Beach' in Cayucos is a 25 minute walk from our home and/or a 3 minute drive. Your dogs can roam off leash and are welcome to enjoy the ocean. Please note the beach directly in front of the entire Beach Tract neighborhood is dog prohibited and dogs are not allowed on the beach... this is a people and Snowy Plover beach only...:)

Our home is brand new and beautifully decorated both inside and out. We are very confident you will not be disappointed. Guests have noted on several occasions that our home is nicer than our pictures represent and we have exceeded their expectations. Our attention to detail is visible throughout with special touches so you can feel pampered on your vacation. We have gone to great lengths to design a home that goes above and beyond your expectations in appointments, amenities and furnishings.

This is not your ordinary vacation home rental.

The living room/ kitchen /great room is filled with natural light and is one of the favorite gathering spots with our guests. With views of the ocean, comfortable seating at the island, the kitchen table and sofa, this is the place memories are made. The picture windows look out to the waves and the feeling in this room is expansive. The big kitchen island and counters are done in beautiful dark granite and provide plenty of space for multiple cooks. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you could possibly need to prepare your meals including an extensive selection of spices and small specialty appliances. All the large appliances are brand new including a gas stove and oven, a refrigerator with ice and water available in the door and a microwave. This room is the perfect spot to cozy up on the couch to read a book or just enjoy the view.

Adjacent to our kitchen/great room is our family room where we have a large 55” SAMSUNG SMART Flat Screen TV which is the ideal for watching your favorite sports event and or surfing the internet. We have fast WIFI so you can stay connected if you need to. We have a top of the line leather sleeper sofa with the latest mattress technology to ensure a good night’s sleep when there are extra sleeping requirements. Both of our sofa beds are brand new and very comfortable.

Our home has 2 bedrooms and both are very comfortable. Our first bedroom includes a very high end Cal King bed which is extremely comfortable and may be a problem if you need to get out of bed in the morning… It’s just too comfy… finished with designer linens and bedding. This bedroom has lots of light and a beautiful view of the backyard. The view of the starry night from the windows are just beautiful.

Our hall bathroom is designed with custom tile throughout. The tub/shower combo is detailed with Travertine niches and counter tops.

The Master bedroom suite in our home also includes our very comfy Cal King bed and a private master bathroom. The bathroom includes a custom tiled walk in shower with two showers heads, a rain-head shower head and a handheld shower head. With one on each side of the shower no one will be left standing in the cold.. The granite sink and beautiful details in this bathroom inspire a feeling similar to a high end boutique hotel and one we are sure you will enjoy.

The French doors from the Master open to a beautiful backyard that is landscaped with succulent gardens, butterfly and vegetable gardens, waterfalls including a brand new top of the line BBQ, three seating areas, wood/gas burning fire-pit and 6 person hot tub. The outside double lounge chair is ideal for napping in the afternoon. This large 3000 sq. foot backyard is a perfect place to unwind and enjoy time with your family and friends. Relaxing in the hot tub or sitting by the fire pit while enjoying s’mores is highly recommended. In addition we are in a starry night neighborhood with very little light at night and when the skies are clear the stars are amazing…

Our Kids Kave (garage/playroom) includes an indoor outdoor Kettler ping pong table for our sports enthusiasts. Darts, games, another TV with videos and a play station for the young at heart in the group. We have a variety of wetsuits to use for the brave of heart and who want to venture into the chilly ocean for a dip. We have some very fun activities for our guests in our Kids Kave and this is the perfect spot to get lost for a little while. The kids just love it!

We are located on the Central Coast of California in the City of Morro Bay. We are 4 hours north of Los Angeles and 4 hours south of San Francisco. If you travel the coastline of California we are ideally positioned in the center of the state and this is the perfect home base from which to explore popular locations like Monterey, Big Sur, Hearst Castle, Cambria, San Luis Obispo, Montana de Oro and Pismo Beach and Santa Barbara.

Morro Bay is heaven for those who enjoy strolling the beautiful beaches of the Central Coast. With miles of coastline to choose from and being centrally located, you can have it all..

We are far enough away from the city life to give you the feeling of escape...peace and quiet to relax and enjoy the beautiful central coast lifestyle and we are close enough for you to visit on a regular basis.

We are owner managed and operated and take pride in sharing our home. Cleanliness and customer service are two qualities that are highest on our list. Our home is one you will not soon forget but equal to the quality of our home and service really is the spectacular location. This is as close to beachfront as you can get and very worth the cost.

During the summer months Melaleuca requires a one week minimum, and during the fall, winter and spring months we offer 3 night minimum stays.

We would love to hear from you if you are interested in vacationing here.

Amazing Vacation Home in Morro Bay

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I stayed at Melaleuca for 2 glorious weeks in July to celebrate our 30/60 birthdays. We started planning our vacation last November, so our anticipation level was very high by the time we started driving from Colorado to Morro Bay. Our jaws dropped when we finally arrived because the pictures we’d looked at for months online did not do justice to this home – it is much more beautiful in person!! Lisa (the owner) has done a fabulous job designing both the interior and exterior…it is definitely the perfect home-away-from-home with all conveniences. We loved the huge backyard, the neighborhood, and accessibility to the beach…literally just a few steps away. Each time we sat in the backyard we discovered something new and fun to look at…there are 3 seating areas and many personal touches surrounding each one. Our dogs had a great time exploring the backyard, too! Lisa was very professional every step of the way and was always quick to respond to our many questions. Lisa kept in touch during our stay to make sure we were comfortable and I can’t say enough about her! Must do’s in the area: shopping on Embarcadero; hiking in Montana de Oro State Park; farmers markets in Morro Bay and Los Osos; shopping in Cambria; driving Highway 1 (north and south); Avila Beach, Monterey Bay Aquarium; walking/running the beach (Morro Strand) and collecting sand dollars; Hearst Castle tour; exploring the area around Morro Rock. Restaurants we loved: Fish Bonez, Windows on the Water, The Galley, The Fish Hopper in Monterey, and Robin’s in Cambria. We saw whales each night (from the home's large dining room windows) as they jumped out of the ocean…and one morning, as my daughter was running on the beach, there were 6 dolphins swimming alongside! My family has stayed at a lot of VRBO homes over the years, and Melaleuca in Morro Bay is by far the best one yet! Thank you, Lisa, for sharing your home – we hope to return someday soon! L & S

A Wonderful House and a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
As this is being written, my wife and I are in the middle of a 3 month stay at Melaleuca. Yes, we are escapees from winter in Wisconsin and this beautiful beach house and Morro Bay have provided a warm and comfortable place for us to live and a beautiful beach on which to play. The house has plenty of room for guests and a beautiful back yard (very rare in this area) for entertaining. The owners designed and decorated the house for themselves so it is comfortable, convenient, and well equipped. The furniture and accessories are tasteful and the beds extraordinarily comfortable. Even the neighbors are great! Couple all this with this unique beach community full of history and you have a vacation combination which is very difficult to beat. Guess what??? You have to stay here to believe it! And, in case you are wondering, the owners are attentive and great!

Wonderful vacation home in Morro Bay

  • 5 of 5
Melaleuka is a beautiful, gracious, well-appointed, impeccably maintained home in a very lovely spot in Morro Bay. We felt so at home there during our month stay. The attention to detail shown by the owner, in both the decor and the personal contact during our stay, was very impressive and much appreciated. The location is perfect, with terrific views of the surf over the dunes from the front windows, accessibility to the incredible sand-dollar-littered, flat sandy beach, walking trails, downtown Morro Bay and neighboring towns. The neighborhood is very quiet and friendly. The backyard is a little piece of paradise unto itself...great for relaxing with a morning cup of coffee, an evening cocktail or a good book in hand, peaceful and lovely. Thank you Lisa for sharing your beautiful home with us, we miss it already!

Lovely beach home in ideal location

  • 5 of 5
This proved to be an excellent place for a family reunion--comfortable, private, well-furnished, and just across the street from a magnificent public beach. The kids loved playing in the sand dunes and returning to the hot tub. All of us slept well and enjoyed family meals together. I agree with all the positive comments of previous reviewers. We hope to return for another visit!

Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and young daughter stayed here over the Thanksgiving holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. There was something for each of us to enjoy at the house, from a gourmet kitchen equipped with all the neccessary cooking supplies for the foodie in our group, to wonderful trails along the beautiful coastline for the walker in our trio and, of course, the kids cave. We had fun family time making smores around the fire out back as well. Do we even like smores? We just had a ball! The house was clean, the backyard a dream, and you just cant beat the location.

When we had a minor issue like a running toilet, the owner had someone out to fix it the very next day, and seeing how it was a holiday weekend, we were impressed. I cant say enough about the professionalism of the owners and the courtesies they provided. We will definitely be returning.
