Casual Elegance and Comfortable Accommodations ~

2018 booking season Is upon us and when you book before

If your total group is a party of no more than 8 PEOPLE (including ALL visiting day guests) and you are looking for a BEAUTIFUL upscale, single story, PET-FRIENDLY vacation home that is on the BEACH SIDE of HIGHWAY 1, one that is TRULY WALKING DISTANCE to the sand, you have found us! Because we are in a small beach tract neighborhood we do limit the number of guests to no more than 8 people and 3 cars during your ENTIRE stay. We love your requests for reservation but please know this is for parties of 8 people or less. Please note the pet fee will need to be updated on your quote.

If you are interested in Cal Poly Graduation please note we do have a 5-night minimum. We have several families that come back every year and have made "The Palms" their home away from home in Morro Bay. This is not your ordinary vacation rental and we have managed and owned in the area for years and client service is our priority. We are so fortunate to have them as our honored clientele year after year!

Hot tub under the stars, ping pong table, great room with open floor plan, pet-friendly and 58, 5 star awesome reviews... Our “coveted beach tract” property is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home located on the WEST side (beach side) of Pacific Coast Highway.(We are not across the hwy, on the hill or in town)

We have gone to great lengths to make “The Palms” feel like an UPSCALE HOTEL with high-end accommodations and attention to detail that goes above and beyond.

Here are just a few comments from our previous guests;

"We have stayed at a VARIETY OF VACATION RENTALS in Cambria and Morro Bay over the past 12 years. BY FAR, THE PALMS WAS THE NICEST!"

'THIS HOUSE WAS PERFECT! It was beautiful, comfortable and had all the amenities. The house was CLEAN, WELL MAINTAINED and stocked with many necessities. It is a quick walk to my favorite beach and a short drive to downtown. Besides the location of the house, one of my other favorite things was the HOT TUB in the backyard; sitting there at night relaxing and looking at the gorgeous stars. Yet I think the guys in our group would say the best thing about it was the HUGE FLAT SCREEN TV, wireless Internet connection, and the ping pong table! Regardless of what each one of us liked best, there was something for everyone! My friends could NOT STOP TALKING ABOUT WHAT A GREAT FIND the house was. I MUST HAVE LOOKED AT ABOUT 100 HOMES ON THE WEB AND I"M SO GLAD WE DECIDED ON THE PALMS! I would recommend this property to everyone! The Palms is now one of MY NEW FAVORITE places if you are lucky enough to stay there I am sure you will enjoy it as much as we did!!'

'The Palms in Morro Bay was the PERFECT GET_AWAY RETREAT for our family holiday!! From walks on the beach, relaxing jigsaw puzzles in front of the large screen TV, open plan entertaining including patio dinners, smores over the fire pit, and a relaxing soak in the hot tub under the stars, it was a wonderful change of pace for our busy family!! A great place for our busy family to gather midway between San Francisco and Pasadena for casual, comfortable family time!! The property was BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED, CLEAN AND VERY COMFORTABLE. Beds and bedding were luxurious and lovely!! The kitchen was well appointed with all we needed for family cooking and entertaining! The owner was very helpful and welcoming and able to answer all our questions. We will definitely be back again for another wonderful central coast retreat!” This is a WONDERFUL HOME to create some great memories.'

''We recently spent TWO MONTHS IN MORRO BAY and at The Palms, as the house is affectionately called. In order to be comfortable for two months in a place, it needs to have ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME The Palms not only has all the comforts, it goes ABOVE and BEYOND the EXPECTATIONS of a high-quality vacation rental You will not want for any entertainment items, you will not want for outdoor comfort, you will not want for location and you will not want for a stable neighborhood. There is a lot of LOVE & TENDER LOVING CARE that goes into a high-quality rental and you can tell that the Palms receives a lot of both!'

We take pride in our home and listen to our clientele. We have new additions every year and some of the best ideas come from our guests!

The Palms is elegantly furnished down to high-end quality linens, including dual pane windows, Mexican tile flooring and an open and airy floor plan. Our home sleeps 6-8 people comfortably. The master bedroom contains a California King bed and is complete with its own private flat screen TV and bathroom. The 2nd & 3rd bedrooms have queen beds and the living room has a queen sofa sleeper and a futon. The beds are high end and very cozy.

There are two beautifully designed bathrooms complete with custom tiled showers, new toilets, vanity, and sinks. This home has a wonderfully large open kitchen / great room with granite counter tops and lots of fun kitchen accessories that you will enjoy for our guests who love cooking.

For your entertainment, we have 2 large flat screen TVs, DVD players, and very fast high-speed wireless internet. In addition, we have a ping-pong table, carom board, lots of books, games, puzzles, and videos. In the backyard, there is a patio table, private hot tub and fire pit for your relaxation under the stars. You will also find lots of added touches that will make your stay at The Palms in Morro Bay very comfortable. Little details that make you feel pampered on your vacation.

In addition, if you have dogs we are very close to 'dog beach' where your dogs can run 'off leash' and have fun in the surf and sand. If you are looking for an upscale beautifully appointed vacation rental that is “Pet-Friendly”, you will not be disappointed.

So many wonderful things to do during your stay: visit Hearst Castle which is just 30 minutes north, search the tide pools for seashells, horseback ride on the beach or go bird watching at our beautiful wildlife estuary.

If you are a wine lover you can take a wine tasting tour at one of our many world-renowned wineries in Paso Robles and for the golfers, don't forget we have many championship golf courses where you can hone your golfing skills for your next tournament.

Enjoy short jaunts to San Luis Obispo for shopping or Cayucos and Cambria for antiquing or live theater, or just have fun in the sun kayaking, whale watching and enjoying the breathtaking views and natural beauty of The Central Coast.

During the summer months, The Palms requires a one-week minimum. During the fall and winter months, we offer 3 & 4-night minimum stays depending.

When booking online please note the VRBO BOOK IT NOW & Quoting System option is new and often quoted nights, pet fees and minimum nights may not apply. You will receive an automated response from VRBO with a detailed quote that will need to be updated.

Why Lisa chose Morro Bay

The floorplan is wonderfully open and airy and very comfortable for everyone to spend time together. A true GREAT room feeling with lots of special touches to pamper you on your vacation. Great spot and we just love the area !

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location. Although we are not beachfront and do not have a view we are on the WEST side of Highway 1 with just a 4 minute walk to the sand (Beach side of PCH). The trek to the sand is easy and comfortable for you and your parents as well. We have a peak of Morro Rock from our living room and are in a small residential neighborhood with friendly neighbors and little traffic. We are in Northern Morro Bay perfectly located for easy access both north and south on highway 1. Our little beach neighborhood is called the Beach Tract and is a bit slower than in town. Also we are just a few minutes to 'Dog Beach' with miles of beachfront to explore. It really is the perfect spot...

Great Central Coast Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 18 nights in this lovely home on a quiet street in Morro Bay. An easy two-block walk to the beach, with beautiful views of Morro Rock. The house was clean and nicely furnished. A big kitchen, TV room, dining and living areas are all open concept. The private back yard was nice for both dogs and humans, and the hot tub got plenty of use during our visit. We appreciated the owner checking in on us occasionally, and her advice on nearby restaurants and shops. We also appreciated the easy way our two dogs were fussing and warnings about where they were allowed...we were simply trusted to be responsible pet refreshing! Morro Bay is a great central location for exploring California's Central Coast, and this home is a great place from which to do that exploring!

Most Wonderful Family Time

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and our two kids (23 & 17) stayed here for a couple of days before Christmas for some quiet family time before the hubbub. It was perfect in every way! We walked in to a home decorated for the holiday, tree, lights and all. Everything worked perfectly, beds were comfortable and it was just a quick walk to the beach and to the bike trail. The windows and doors are super tight, so you don't hear a single bit of traffic or outside noise. We are already trying to plan another weekend here!

Property was as described, clean, very comfortable, had everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

Place was great! Kept up as though it is a personal home. Lisa was very sweet and accessible. It was amazing to have the house stocked with things to do. From the hot tub & fire pit to ping pong and a closet full of games and books, something for everyone. Also had lots of things on site for hanging out on the beach. Positive experience for even picky customers among our group :) Would definitely recommend!

Very nice rental and a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Palms and loved that it was so close to the beach. The house has a very nice layout and was very comfortable for our family of 5 plus puppy - very clean and nicely furnished for a pet friendly rental. Kitchen is very well equipped, beds comfortable with nice linens, and garage well stocked with gear and toys (we had great fun in our ping pong tournaments!) Lisa, the owner, was very attentive, wanting to be sure that we had all we needed. We would definitely rent here again.

Looking forward to our next stay!

A comfortable wonderful, place

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at The palms was very comfortable, for three people it had everything we needed. The attitude of this house is hopefully "one you would want to live in." The beach was close by and so was the shopping and places to eat. Lots of small winery's in a 50 mile radius and i do mean lots. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi, grilled, chilled and truly vacationed. Having a comfortable place to come home to where everyone has plenty of space made it all the more enjoyable. Lisa is a charm:)
