Outstanding Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented the "Gathering Place" for our son's wedding at Cass House. Cass House is a wedding venue located less than 1/2-block to the south. This home provided an excellent base for the 7 members of our extended family. It also had the room we needed to host the rehearsal dinner on the evening before the wedding. The home is well stocked with dining and cooking supplies. It has an excellent view of the beach and Cayucos Pier, located just a short walk away.

The owners, Doug and Elaine, live nearby and were excellent hosts. We chose to execute a short-term rental agreement directly with them rather than go through VRBO. The agreement was simple and our security deposit was refunded in full shortly after we departed. All in all, we had a terrific weekend.

Beautiful house and location is perfect

  • 4 of 5

The house is great. Everything seems brand new and the location is perfect just across the street from the Cuyucos pier.

My only beef is with VRBO itself. The price you actually pay is about 25% higher than what's listed on the site. It would be better if the total price were listed. It would make it better for comparison. I'm probably going to be avoiding VRBO in the future.

Owner's Response: You can avoid the extra fees from VRBO by booking directly with the Gathering Place owner and paying by check. Contact info is on the VRBO web site. By booking directly with the owner, you can also reserve the dates with only the deposit and pay in full 60 days before arrival. Thanks for your comments. VRBO does have an added booking fee of roughly $70 - $100, but allows you to pay by credit card without a fee. VRBO also offers insurance however the deposit to cover any damages is never waived. The deposit is refunded on departure and is not an issue. However, should there be damages the insurance would cover it and the deposit refund would not be effected. The base rental rate does not include 12% taxes and a $180 prep fee, nor a $225 pet fee, if applicable. These fees and taxes are applicable whether you book directly with VRBO or directly with the owner. If you have any questions please contact the owner directly at 805-234-3525. We appreciate your business. Doug & Elaine, owners

This house was better than the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time using the "Gathering Place" as a base for meeting up with relatives who live in the area. The location allowed for easy play on the beach as well as excursions to the shops and restaurants on Ocean Ave and Front St. The hosts are very low key and accommodating.

Perfect location in Cayucos! Very clean and upscale property! Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the layout of the house. Two TV's downstairs for private time and having the deck upstairs to overlook the ocean was ideal! Games, puzzles, books were available to enjoy. Kitchen was open to dining room for easy meals. We will return!

Large home with a beautiful view for celebrating the holidays together

  • 5 of 5

The view of the ocean from the living room was breath-taking. The home was exactly what we needed to spend the holidays together. We were able to accommodate 9 adults and 3 children. The kitchen had everything needed for preparing all our meals and being able to seat us comfortably. It was a short walk to the pier and the downtown area and an easy drive to the elephant seals in San Simeon. We would consider using this property again In the future.

We gathered together for a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and quickly met Doug and Elaine. Tour of the home included info from Elaine on the history of the property, which we enjoyed.

The listing description was accurate, property clean and very well maintained. Customer service wasn't necessary for problems but Doug answered quickly when I called with questions. We would certainly recommend the home and the location. The only caution is the weather that is often cool in August, which was fine with us. Others might need to check weather to be sure to bring jackets as needed. We liked the Pieman's breakfast and Schooner's. We liked being close to Morro Bay, Cambria and San Luis Obispo. The farmers market we went to in Morro Bay was great! We forgot to go the the Cayucos one. We spent a lot of time enjoying being together in the living and dining rooms.

The home was spaceous enough for us, 3 couples plus our grandson of 22 months. The home was clean and well appointed, the kitchen full of cooking/dining items and the big table was a hit. There is a handy 2nd refrig in the garage, and the bbq was very easy to access. The 4th bath wasn't really needed on this trip but a nice addition for larger groups. The pool table was a hit with all! Having the view of the ocean was perfect and the short walk to the beach is fun and separate from traffic. It was great to be the last house so close to the end of "our" part of town and yet to be so near the pier and the short walk to shops and restaurants. It was fun to order a gluten free pie from the Pieman - a hit with all of us! and our last night at Schooner's for dinner was a treat. The only reason we wouldn't return is if the family decides to continue exploring other locations. We all really like Cayucos! Thanks Doug and Elaine! Jan, Jack and family PS Our grandson was very happy to see a dolphin, and seal in the bay and crab on the beach!

Owner's Response: We find much joy to see such wonderful families celebrate together at the Gathering Place. It is our great pleasure to make everything perfect for the occasion. The Cayucos location is marvelous. Every day is a new adventure with nature's treasures when you walk on the beach. We know of no other beach that is so flat and stretches for 6 miles. Our guests report seeing so much sea life just from walking out on the pier, always in full view from the porch and deck. Doug & Elaine
