About the property

2813 sq ft with elevator, 3 BR, 3 bath, deck, 2 outdoor showers, 2-car garage

……………..……………...…………… Linda’s Whale Watch………………….....………….....………...

Positives: ~~~ Spectacular, panoramic ocean and white-water views. ~~~ Three-minute walk from door knob to toes in the water! (9 houses) ~~~ Unobstructed views of the hills, Cayucos’ historic cemetery, and Highway One. ~~~ The best all-around location on the Central Coast. ~~~ Large, comfortable, spacious 2,800 sq. ft. house. (Average 3-bedroom beach house is about 1,500 sq.) ~~~ Duel outdoor showers. ~~~ Ample parking! 2-car garage and long, brick drive. ~~~ Large, 3 BR/3-bath house, NOT a condo, bungalow, motel room, or typical small beach house. It can easily handle several families! ~~~ Elevator for moving luggage and tired bodies up & down. ~~~ Wet Suits of varying sizes & boogie boards.

Negatives: ~~~ We get some road noise as our beach house is the last house sitting on the side of a small hill overlooking Highway One, but it’s that location that gives us our truly spectacular, 290° views (see our pictures) of the ocean, hills, and Cayucos’ historic cemetery, so to most folks the trade off is a no-brainer. That same hill makes our driveway a little steep, but on the plus side its length does give us more parking than normal. It’s possible to park up ten cars in our garage, turn-around, and driveway.

Our beach house might be the only one that has been secret service approved when a congressman’s family picked it for their vacation. You’ll know why the moment you get out of the car and look back at the waves rolling in, and the views just get more spectacular from the second floor. Poised on the finger of a hill in such a manner you won’t see the cars on the street below when sitting in the living room, but you will see the wind moving the tree tops and watch the surf roll in. You’ll think you’re in a big tree house that has wall-to-wall windows from living room to dining room. From your perch you’ll be able to watch the kids run all the way to the state beach and watch them boogie board, fly kites, play in the water, or surf. White-water views and watching the sun rise above the hills in the east and sinking over the ocean on the west are just a small taste of the joys of this house. Wildlife is another. It is not unusual to see deer or turkeys on the hills to the north or sea otters, sea lions, or pods of jumping porpoises ... and yes, even breaching whales during their migrations. You can start your day with coffee on the deck watching the sun come up or the fog swirling around the hills and Morro Rock and over the water or end it with a glass of wine while you watch the sun go down over the ocean. Come and enjoy the simple pleasures that can only be truly savored in one of the last charming small coastal towns left in the nation … a charming small coastal town with near perfect year-round weather.

The state beach is just nine houses down 24th Street, about a three-minute walk, with an unobstructed view straight down the road all the way to the beach. That means you can sit on the deck and watch the kid's play at the beach, and when they get back from building sand castles, they can wash the sand off in twin outdoor showers. The BBQ chef can replenish their energy with great meals to get them ready for their next adventure.

Spacious accommodations for ten, and each room has its own flat screen TV. The master bedroom has a king bed, private bath, and its own private deck with stunning views of the ocean, hills and historical cemetery that dates to the founding of the town. The 2nd upstairs bedroom has a queen with its own bath and views of the hills. The super large downstairs bedroom also has its own bath and patio with great views of the breaking surf through double French doors. It sleeps six with a queen bed, double twins, and a queen futon. The rental comes with fully equipped kitchen and all linens.

Cayucos has location, location, location for great outings! Big Sur starts a few miles north, just as you pass Hearst Castle. Wine tasting in some of the best wine estates in all of California is just minutes away in any direction, including wine excursions on the bay. Antiquing, whale watching, visits to the elephant seal rookery at Piedras Blancas, touring the San Luis mission, or watching world-class performances at Cal Poly's Performing Arts Center all await you. You could even go shell collecting on the miles of beach that starts just a few feet from your door. From fine dining to shopping and everything in between, your family will create lifetime memories in our small town. Don’t take my word for it; take CNN’s who ranked Cayucos number one in the NATION as “America’s coolest small town”!

If you need the easy access that comes with single-story homes for a loved one, you don’t have to give up the views that come with a two-story home because this house has an elevator! You owe it to yourself and your family to at least spend a week with us. Customer loyalty speaks volumes; we have a very strong return rate with most summer visitors immediately booking for the next summer. We’re the best value on the market. Come and see why. We might be just what your family needs to have the best vacation ever.

***Be forewarned, the driveway is steeper than it looks. Cars do park on the steepest part, but you’ll definitely need to engage the parking brake and consider blocking the wheels. It's a small price to pay for the best all-around location and views in the area.

Please note this Vacation Rental is licensed in the County of San Luis Obispo and is authorized to collect Transient Occupancy Tax (Certificate #1083)

Cayucous Stay

  • 4 of 5

This place is wonderful. It's right off the freeway and a short walk to the beach. The sunset view was amazing. The cost was very reasonable and it's a great looking home. I will definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends.

Wonderful property!

  • 4 of 5

I would probably give this 4.5 stars if it were possible. Great location, beautiful home, decorated tastefully, high-end kitchen. It will be a 5+ star once the downstairs bedroom gets remodeled to be like the other bedrooms, but I understand that is the next project. Cayucos is "the coolest small town in the USA" as rated by CNN! The surf is flat for a long time, almost like Waikiki.

Christmas 2017

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 of us spent 4 days here over Christmas of 2017.

We were 6 adults, 4 children, and comprised 4 family units.

Consequently, one adult did not have his own bedroom and bath,

but he seemed happy to sleep in the living room and share Dad's bath.

The dining table easily held all 10 of us for meals, games, and gibby-gab.

All household items were provided and in good condition.

We enjoyed the views, the porches, the short walk to the beach.

The wet suits and boogie boards provided satisfied all our needs.

This home is very nice and well maintained.

We hope to return next year for our annual get together.
