About Greg and Cindy Pierce
Cindy and I grew up in the Central Valley of California and always loved the surf, boarding and fishing. After owning rental homes in Fresno, our home town, we decided to get into the Central Coast housing market with a full time rental in Los Osos in 2000, thinking that it was where we would like to retire, eventually. Fourteen years later, as we closed in on retirement, we were able to trade rentals when we found the Cayucos house. With a vision in our minds and countless hours of watching DIY shows, we hired an architect and a contractor to make our dream reality. In the last month, as we finished our work, we’ve had 4 generations of family spend time with us and, as you can imagine, loved the experience. Alas, we must rent the property to complete the 1031 Tax Exchange rules, followed by a full time residence. We can hardly wait.
Greg and Cindy Pierce purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Greg and Cindy Pierce chose Cayucos
We never thought we could find a home with proximity to the ocean, views, and requirements of 2bd, 2ba, inside laundry, and a garage that was affordable. We just got lucky. When discussing a mobil home with our good friend and realtor, Jeff Blanchard, he asked us what we really wanted and he said, “There is a house…” and we came immediately to check it out. In less than 10 minutes, Cindy was ready for an offer and I said, “Hell yah!!” The financing was a bit complicated, but, long story short, we have been able to remodel the ocean home of our dreams. The house is centrally located on the Morro Strand beach and within short driving distance of many coastal attractions. We hope to move to the cottage in the future, but, for now, we will share it with a few “Ocean lovers.”
What makes this Cottage unique
Without doubt, the view, the closeness to the ocean, and the comfort of the home are its unique qualities. The family throws their toys and towels into the wagon and we walk to the beach. Within 3 minutes, we are in sand, shoes off, wind in our face, waves crashing at our feet. Kids are digging in the sand, surfers are working the waves and couples are walking their dogs for miles. Nice place to be! Aside from beach life, there are a multitude of other activities. World renown wine country with more than 70 wineries to visit and taste. Gather friends and let someone else do the driving. Sightseeing up and down the coast: Hearst Castle, sea lion rookery, Montana De Oro, Big Sur, Artist Colony at Harmony, fine dining in towns up and down the coast, and last but not least, you could simply put your feet up, read a book and relax... the Pacific Ocean stretching for as far as you can see.

This house in Cayucos was perfect!
There were 6 of us and we were all very comfortable in this house. Cindy and Greg seemed to have thought of everything one might have forgotten to pack...from shampoo to laundry detergent, to boardgames etc. The house was immaculate, and the location was amazing. Great ocean views and a short drive (or you could walk) to beach access. will definitely come back here again. Thank you Greg and Cindy for making our vacation a great experience!
I we are so happy you found everything you needed and then some! We look forward to having you back again!

Cant wait to visit again and rent this house! Greg and cindy are so very friendly and will to help out however they can! You will not be disappointed by renting this place!!
Thank you so much for your review and nice comments. When we found this property we knew we could make something special! We look forward to having you back again!!
Felt like home!
We had a great stay at “A Shore Thing”! Greg and Cindy have done an amazing job with the property and have everything you could think of to make it feel like home. It was the perfect set up for our family of 5, plus our fur baby. We loved being able to bring our dog to enjoy the dog friendly town and the dog beach that didn’t seem to have an end. She ran and played for hours and loved the hike up the hill behind the house to the hang glider launch hill. We would love to come back!
It is such a joy to know that your lovely family had a wonderful time at our beach house! We try to supplement our kitchen with accoutrements that family’s need to have during there stay. It would be our pleasure to have your family return!
Such a beautiful house. Decorated so beachy and fun. Had a great time!!! Can’t wait to stay again.
Thank you! We wanted our beach cottage to be very comfortable and we continue to update and try to think of ways to make ones stay as enjoyable as possible. It warms our hearts to see families having fun and making memories year after year! We look forward to seeing you return soon!!!
Great beach home!
We absolutely loved staying in Greg and Cindy’s home. They are just the nicest people. Their home is just beautiful and comfortable for my family. We loved waking up in the mornings and drinking coffee looking at the ocean. Every night we would walk to the beach. They had everything we needed to take the beach. Definitely looking forward to coming back to their beautiful home. Thank you!
Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to your return!
"A Shore Thing" Surely Delivers
Three generations ages 76 to 11 all were impressed and enjoyed the scenic location and relaxing home filled with detailed features in each and every room, plus on the deck and back patio. The kitchen is stocked with every need and the guest book is filled with suggestions for dining, touring and recreating. "A ShoreThing" is a gem and "beachy-keen."
Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to write your review. We look forward to your family returning to “A Shore Thing”!
Aside from the easy beach access and its related activities, sight seeing is a favorite of ours. The Central Coast provides a jumping off place for the hidden wonders of Highway One. Driving north, you have mostly ocean views from Cayucos to Hearst Castle to Big Sur to Carmel and return on HWY 101. Described by Sunset Magazine as one of the most beautiful roads in the world. A long day trip, for sure, but something you'll never forget.
Secondly, the Wine Scene in the Central Coast Region is building a reputation for world class libation. Just wandering around the green hills off of HYW 46, near the artistic colony of Harmony, population 23, to Paso Robles gives you more than 70 wineries that have been reviewed with high praise the world over. Gather friends and let someone else do the driving; music and food is available at many of the venues.
