About Ian Starkie at Rock Star Properties Inc.

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 Rock Star Properties Inc. purchased this house in 2005

Why Ian Starkie at Rock Star Properties Inc. 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.

Wonderful view, convenient location, comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this house very much. We liked that it was up on the hillside so we could get the view as pictured. Although the decor is very dated (60s) the house was clean, comfortable (good mattresses), good neighborhood and equipped with everything we needed. No complaints. We had a delightful 6 days there and loved Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo. Wonderful fresh fish at the wharf, (The Galley). Wonderful fresh fish tacos down the street at Taco Temple. We also loved the food at Big Sky in San Luis O.(especially the Breakfast). There is so much to see and do in the area and we just scratched the surface. Fantastic ocean cliff views from the nearby state park, Montana de Oro. Hearst castle and Big Sur are both close by, although a mudslide had destroyed Hwy 1 below Big Sur. Loved kayaking in the bay and watching the seals and otters that reside there.

Very nice property overlooking the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We had a memorable time in this rental. All beds were comfortable. (Property is very well stocked with comforters, linens etc). Living room view was priceless. Located just off the highway and with convenient access to super market (spencers) and eateries. We will book again in future. Easy access to Cayucos beach, Pismo beach, hearst castle. TV is old. But of course, we were not there to watch TV.

Just ok

  • 3 of 5

Having stayed in several vacation rentals we were somewhat disappointed in this one. Although the location is great with a beautiful view, the home has an unpleasant odor. I believe it's just old (smells like great grandma's house). The kitchen appliances should be updated. During our stay the downstairs tenant decided to clean his/her oven which filled our upstairs unit with a hazy fog for several hours. This house has so much potential but should be updated if it's going to be a vacation rental property.

Owner's Response: Vic, I am sorry to hear that this home did not live up to your expectations. As for a smell, we had our cleaners do a deep cleaning after your stay and this should hopefully no longer be a problem. In regards to the smell coming from the downstairs tenant, I truly apologize about any inconvience this may have caused and the downstairs tenants have assured me that this will not happen again in the future. We are continually in the process of updating this home and have recently installed new flooring in the kitchen and dining area as well as new curtains. Ian - Rock Star Properties

Cozy, Excellent View, Close to Beach

  • 5 of 5

In Morro Bay, on the hill is better than near the beach because you cannot get a place ON the beach, which means you may be close but there's no view. The view from this place is great, with a super view of the sunset.

Car: recommended

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.

Cal Poly State University San Luis Obispo is only 14 miles down the highway. It's also an easy drive to Hearst Castle.

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