Chad and Rainy are nice, friendly and clearly take great pride in their home. This is one of those rare places that, in real life, actually measures up to the photos! The view is just plain stunning, and the house is warm and inviting. My only regret: I didn't get a chance to try out that fabulous clawfoot tub. But perhaps one day we will meet again...

Rainy was a very attentive host. Very lovely home, and she rightly took a lot of pride in showing it to us on the day we arrived. She was very clear with the house rules, and we gladly complied. Just a very comfortable home and beautiful setting. Best view in the whole neighborhood. We were there for our daughter's wedding, and Rainy was very accommodative of our prep needs in her beautiful garage, but be very respectful of the property and the neighborhood.

Our 3 day stay in Pismo Beach to celebrate our husband’s 70th birthdays was only made better by staying in this beautiful home at Shell Beach. The awesome weather allowed us to spend a lot of time on the deck enjoying the garden, beautiful views of the ocean and one night a spectacular sunset. We enjoyed walks on the beach, golf at Avila Beach and great restaurants in Pismo Beach The home is very clean and comfortable. The décor is on the formal side with multiple seating areas both inside and out. The neighborhood is gated, well maintained and very quiet. Thank you Rainy for your hospitality.

This was our very first time using AirBnB (at the recommendation of some colleagues as well as noting AirBnB was our first Cloud-based customer!) At first, being a private and somewhat conservative family, we weren't sure what to expect staying in someone else's house. We were put to ease the moment we walked through the door and met Rainy and her fabulous assistant Jessica. Very welcoming, accommodating and super thoughtful! Our daughter's birthday happened to fall on a day during our stay - Rainy was SO thoughtful to hand write a personal note and include local Ice Cream Parlor gift certificates!! Very cool! The view from their home is spectacular, not to mention her mature flower gardens that attract tons of birds & butterflies. (my husband is a photographer, so he had a field day!) (Case in point: a mama & papa Quail had their babies on the lower deck off the Master Bedroom and we found them scurrying around trying to climb the stairs to get out but were still too little. After texting Rainy to advise, she suggested the kids catch them and carry them up so the local cats wouldn't get them! They did just that & all were reunited...neat to watch them all the next day wondering around the property. ) All in all - SO much to do, prime location within walking distance to Shell Beach & tide pools. Very nice & safe walkways for running / walking. Lots of local fresh fruits and vegetables and close to many Paso / SLO wineries ;) ONLY recommendation / suggestion is to ensure guests are aware the TV's in the home do not carry local cable service (especially if bringing kids), only the Apple TV connection - some folks may not be as tech savvy (or be Apple fans). However, it WAS nice to be without that added noise. Instead, our son, who's an avid and amazing guitarist, entertained us. Awesome! Highly recommend, incredibly relaxing - Chad and Rainy are fantastic hosts. Thanks for the great 2014 memories!!!

I knew the moment I saw the basket of fresh strawberries (probably from the SLO Thursday night farmer's market!) on the kitchen counter, we had chosen the perfect place for our visit. We really enjoyed our stay! It was even nicer than the photos and the photos were amazing!! The bathroom and kitchen were clean and spacious. The house was immaculately clean as well. The neighborhood was a quiet, safe and close (just a couple of blocks) to an amazing walking trail along the Shell Beach Bluffs. The flowers on the property were beautiful and the patios were peaceful with amazing ocean views. The whales even made their appearance! We enjoyed being centrally located to the areas we wanted to visit...SLO, Cal Poly, The Madonna Inn, Avala Beach and Pismo Beach. I would highly recommend staying here.

This was our second time staying at Rainy and Chad's and it was great again. We stayed for my son's graduation and it was the perfect contrast to the crowds at Cal Poly. If you are looking for a luxurious, peaceful home with ocean views you should check this out. The house is fully equipped, great kitchen with multiple ocean view porches. Our hosts were very accommodating to our special requests and made sure we had everything we needed. Worth the price.
