About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6.

This ocean home offers incredible 180 degree ocean views from spectacular Morro Rock to Cayucos. Across a neighborhood street to the state park ocean front (see the photos). Located 4 hours from Los Angeles and 4 hours from San Francisco, just minutes from the harbor and embarcadero of Morro Bay. Directly across this lightly used street are stairs leading down to the State Park with paths through the dunes to the beach. Six miles of beach open up to you, two miles south to Morro Rock and four miles north to the pier at Cayucos. The dog friendly beach is several blocks to the north and extends 3 and ½ miles to the town of Cayucos. Beachgoers will share the waves with surfers, kite-boarding, boogie boarders, dolphins, and otters in front of our home! Seabirds, sand dollars and shells are abundant too. Within a short walk down the beach you can explore the tide pools and rocks. Fish in the surf, build sand castles, fly kites, or just relax in the sun. The sunsets are absolutely spectacular from the front patio, living room, kitchen, dining room or in front of the fireplace with a good book.

Our location on Beachcomber Drive is a favorite for families, walkers, runners, and bicyclists, who enjoy the easy walk with incredible views. You don’t have to get in your car, quiet neighborhood streets and bike trails lead you two miles to the Embarcadero with shops, restaurants and activities of Morro Bay. Golfers have choices too - just 4 miles to Morro Bay golf course with incredible views and very reasonable prices. Another local course, Dairy Creek, is just 10 miles away. Many other activities are close by: deep-sea fishing, Hearst Castle, wine tasting at some of the best wineries on the Central Coast, observing the elephant seals, monarch butterflies and blue herons, kayaking in the estuary, shopping on the Embarcadero, antiques, art galleries in Cambria and, of course, San Luis Obispo with its Farmer's Market and Mission are within a short and scenic drive. For all those necessities, one local grocery store is less than 1 mile away and Albertsons and CVS pharmacy are less than 3 miles away.

Numerous special community events include the January Bird Festival, Cayucos’ incredible classic car show, Fourth of July Parade and Morro Bay Fireworks, Morro Bay October Harbor Fest, and the December Boat Parade. There is something for everyone, especially fun and relaxation!!

We’ve priced our home to be a good value for your vacation. It was built in the ‘60s and designed to take full advantage of the incredible views. The home has comfy furnishings, a wood fireplace with gas lighter, tiled kitchen and baths, linens, towels, fully equipped kitchen. The master bedroom has a king bed, large walk-in closet, flat screen TV, and spectacular views. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed, access to a private deck and also has views of the ocean. The kitchen and bathrooms are small by today’s standards but are newly tiled, painted cute and clean. We use the sun room as a 3rd bedroom with a queen bed. There is also a double-sized futon in the dining room area. The master bath has a shower only, the guest bath includes a shower/tub combination, the full-sized washer and dryer are in the garage. The backyard is fenced and secluded, full of flowering plants and fresh herbs.

There is a back patio with table and chairs, and a front patio with table and chairs so you can enjoy either the fire pit or cocktails at sunset. A Weber propane BBQ grill can easily be moved to either location. We’ve furnished the home with games, flat-screen TV’s, beach toys, beach towels, beach chairs, home theater system with IPod dock, a fully-equipped kitchen with microwave, coffeemaker, blender, mixer, toaster, kitchen tools, wine glasses, sets of indoor and outdoor dishes and glasses, and basic spices and condiments.

About Wally Auerbach

The owners have lived full time at Lake Tahoe for over 30 years and enjoy all the recreation activities of the mountains. With three boys in college we finally had time to look for our vacation home. We live in the mountains but love the coast too and found this incredible location for our vacation spot. Close to San Luis Obispo (20 minutes) but a low traffic small town atmosphere.

Wally Auerbach purchased this house in 2010

Why Wally Auerbach chose Morro Bay

We researched and visited coastal spots throughout California, travelling up and down the coast. We chose Morro Bay for the combination of great activities, climate, and small town atmosphere for our relaxation. We wanted to be able to park the car and just enjoy! Watching the ocean from our living room, kitchen, bedroom and patio!

What makes this house unique

Beach walks everyday with friends, family and dogs! Watching the surfers from the house and at the Cayucos pier. Bicycling, hiking, golfing, fishing, and relaxing!!! Fresh grilled oysters and the great seafood at the harbor. The best views are the dawn sunlight on the waves and the magical sunsets every evening.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well, I am here to say, your house in Morro Bay is FANTASTIC!! We rented it for the Cal-Poly graduation weekend in June of 2010. It was the first (and only so far) VRBO rental we've tried, and your house far exceeded my expectations! It is beautiful, and accurately described on the VRBO website. Each and every time I came up with a need, all I had to do was open a drawer or cupboard, and there was whatever it was that I was looking for. Your house was amazingly stocked!! From the kitchen to the wet suit, we needed for nothing. I was pleased with the quality of everything in the house as well; from the cookware to the linens! And YES, I would stay there again.... actually, I looked for the Thanksgiving weekend, but someone beat me to it!! It was delightfully clean when we arrived.

You are a very fortunate couple to own this property! It is truly a special place.

The perfect house

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful. Perfect location and views of the beach, extremely comfortable and well equipped, and lots of cozy sitting areas both inside and outside. The back yard was even fenced in and nicely landscaped. We didn't have time to take advantage of the firepit, grill and all the other stuff in the house but we will definitely be back!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Tammy. I'm glad you found the home comfortable. We have a lot of guests say the same thing, that it's hard to stay home and enjoy it all when there is so much to do and places to explore away from the house!

Loved our stay in this awesome beach home !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home ! My husband and I enjoyed every moment of our winter vacation - throughout the month of February - in your home. The view from your home is spectacular - we started each day by eating our breakfast at the tables in front of the living room windows, looking out at the entire stretch of beach & ocean - from Morro Rock to the south to the point toward Cambria to the north - so special !!! Your home was comfortable and well-equipped for all our needs. The king bed in the Master Bedroom was also very comfortable, again with an awesome view overlooking the beach and ocean. We ventured out each day for long walks on the beaches in Cambria, Cayucos, and of course Morro Bay, as well as exploring each of these towns and enjoying the local shops & eateries. We also enjoyed our walks throughout the neighborhood and meeting the neighbors. We very much look forward to coming back next year - winter 2019 !!!

With much appreciation,

Mark & Elly

Truly enjoyed our visit to Beachcomber.

  • 5 of 5

The property was as advertised. Enjoyed morning coffee in family room watching the ocean, the walks on the beach and then the magnificent sunsets. Morro Bay is a great place to visit. We would stay at Beachcomber again.

Wonderful stay in Morro Bay

  • 5 of 5

Most of my family lives in the Morro Bay Area so I have been visiting there for 66 years. We have a family beach house in Cambria, up the coast, but we wanted to stay closer to our cousins who live on beachcomber street, a couple blocks from this rental. It was perfect for us. The views from the house are spectacular. You could almost just stay inside. My husband just had a mountain bike accident and hurt his neck, so our long walks on the beach were great for him. My sister could walk her poodle on the beach just north of the house. We did all of our cooking at the house which was totally equipped with everything we needed. We will probably try and book this house again. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your home. Charmaine Pape. South Lake Tahoe, CA
