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 Central Coast California

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.

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.

We love this place because we can see the ocean from the living room and have meals on the deck!

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.

Comfort in a nice area. Roger and Lynda

  • 4 of 5

Nice location whit a very nice vew of the ocean and Morro Bay rock, spacious house with an open area including kitchem, dining room and living room all face the ocean and in a nice location, we took a few walk after diner and we where safe. It would be nice to have a washer/dryer to do towels. The BBQ needed to be clean. I will recommend it for sure, for the location and Morrow Bay (down town and Embarcadero).

As advertised and then some

  • 5 of 5

The place was of great value. It met or exceeded my expectations in every way. The house is clean, spacious, has a great view and is located on a nice, quiet, safe street. The kitchen had everything you would need. It was super convienient having a washer/dryer in the garage. I loved the keyless entry feature. Everything was completely hassle free allowing us to focus on simply enjoying our vacation. Would definitely consider staying here again when we vacation in Morro Bay in the future.

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.
