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. Because your dogs are part of the family they are welcome too! Please take a moment to read our reviews from our previous guests as they are our best promoters!

Cal Poly Grad Wekk Just opened up! Minimum stay 5 nights- book now!

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!

Here are just a few comments from our previous guests;

"I can't say enough about this home. Great location, phenomenal yard, clean, bright, well maintained. We have stayed at 10+ VRBO homes, usually VRBO homes are as described, and I have no complaints, however this one exceeded our every expectation. We have never stayed at the same VRBO home twice, but we will be making an exception for this one!"

"I honestly cannot say enough about how perfect this home is for a vacation on the California shore. From the moment I contacted Lisa everything came together. The best part was when we arrived at her home and felt like we were in heaven. The home has everything you need for a peaceful, comfortable and beautiful vacation. We loved the inside and outside. Everything was so thoughtfully decorated and equipped. We wished that we could have stayed much longer and have definitely decided it will be a place we will return. We especially loved how close it is to the ocean. Morning and evening walks on the beach were only a minute away. Thanks Lisa for all you did to make our trip so memorable."

"My family enjoyed a wonderful week at your home in Morro Bay. Everything was better than we expected and the pictures online do not do your home justice. It is much, much nicer in person. We slept so well in your comfy beds, we cooked delicious meals in the kitchen, spent hours at the beach (some days with no one else around) and returned to warm up in the Jacuzzi. In the evenings we watched pods of whales from the front room then roasted marshmallows at the fire pit, and watched movies or played ping pong. It was the perfect way to end the summer and get ready for school! We would love to make it a yearly tradition!"

The spring and summer dates are booking now and if you are interested in visiting us during the holidays or Cal Poly Graduation it is a good idea to book early as these dates go really fast. Contact us now so we can block your dates. During the summer months our minimum stay is 6 nights.

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 home is single level living at it's best! We are animal lovers and this is and a sanctuary backyard a pet friendly home. Please note our pet fees are on a per dog, per day basis and the VRBO system of quoting is not accurate. If you would like to book online please note the pet fee will need to be updated.

This open and airy floor plan 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 but the most outstanding feature of this home is the sanctum backyard that sets this home apart from most other rentals.

Just steps to the Cloisters bike/ beach path which 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 20 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 clean, 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. The attention to detail is visible throughout with special touches so you 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 large 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. Please note our cleaning fees include our home, our hot tub and expansive sanctuary backyard.

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.


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 very well may need to be edited.

For our guests with pets who request online reservations, your quote will need to be revised prior to acceptance. Please call us at 805-279-9381

Why Lisa chose Central Coast California

Great neighborhood... Next to the Cloisters and as close to beachfront as you can get...perfect location to view the ocean, Morro Rock, hear the waves and smell the surf... street to street lot with a huge backyard which is very rare in the beach tract. Our beautiful backyard living space is ready to enjoy and one you won't soon forget..Hot tub, fire pit, waterfall, outside shower, two dining areas and we just started a little veggie garden. Enjoy fresh veggies when it is ready to harvest !

What makes this house unique

Amazing location, starry night, quiet neighborhood. This is an upscale and very comfortable home with a easy access to the sand, walking and bike path with beach access right across the street.

Exceptional Vacation Property in Morro Bay, CA

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic getaway vacation at this beachfront property. It has a great location and the overall experience staying there exceeded our expectations. The house has a nice layout, is well appointed, and is in exceptional condition. We especially liked the extra large kitchen area and the huge backyard (and so did our small dogs). If you are visiting the Morro Bay area this is one of the top places to stay for sure. You will not be disappointed!

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the end of August at this lovely property, and it's a wonderful place to stay. The location is great - near the beach and a lovely trail through the wetlands, close enough to the touristy area of Morro Bay - a short car ride - but not too close. The neighborhood is residential and very quiet. The house was well cared for and had a comfortable bed and good shower. To us, the best perk of the house was a really lovely and spacious backyard. It was fenced and private and beautifully landscaped. We loved it and so did our dog. The best testimonial is that we can't wait to stay here again.

Perfect Beach Retreat House

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect beach retreat house for our family of four (kids age 7 and 4). Nestled in a quiet neighborhood, steps away from the beach, the property inside and out is meticulously planned and laid out and as such can suit just about any person.

On the inside, all the furnishings are nice but not too nice (if that makes sense). With small kids roaming around, the worry always hovers between are they going to get hurt or are they going to break something. The kitchen is well equipped and allowed us to cook a few intricate meals. The bedroom setting is extremely comfortable and were a restful respite compared to the hotel rooms we stayed at prior to arriving to the Central Coast. Additional positives were the ping pong table, tv with a decent number of channels, and playstation for the kids.

The outside is a garden oasis with both privacy and variety of flora that begs for you to hang out there. Although we were a small group with no guests, I can see this as a great place to entertain. We had use of both the hot tub and bbq.

Being steps away from both a hiking trail and peaceful beach was also exactly what I was looking for. We explored the local Morro Bay, Los Osos, and Montana De Oro park areas in addition to many other places along the Central Coast to SoCal, but having beach access that close to a great vacation home is just what we needed.

I give my highest recommendation of this property and working with Lisa to arrange our stay. My only regrets are not booking earlier and staying longer.

A Relaxing Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful, multi-generational vacation at Melaleuca! This property is just what you are looking for. Lisa (the owner) has a flair for design, and all of her properties are impeccable and awesome! The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable. There are both a living room and family room - separate areas for TV vs no TV. But what sets this property apart from others is the location, ambiance, and yard. Located half a block from the beach access, our family spent part of each day at the beach. There is a nearby trail also, allowing for hikes to a nearby playground (for the 4 year old), bike rides, bird viewings, and hikes to the Morro Bay Embarcadero. The house is extremely comfortable and inviting, and it lends itself to relaxation. But the true jewel is the yard! Full of many quiet, cozy areas, it allowed room for all of us to spread out. Two table areas (which get sun at differing time of the day, a chaise lounge area, fire pit area, hot tub, outdoor shower (great for after the beach), and lawn area - all of which are surrounded by lush landscaping. We enjoyed croquet, bocce ball, family bbqs, s'mores, lounging, and relaxing in the hot tub. The kids loved the game room in the garage too, along with the boogie boards and beach bikes. Can't wait to return!
