Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great place. Despite our late arrival, Diana was there to greet us and made sure we were comfortable and feeling welcome. We were. Super comfy beds, birds singing in the morning, a short walk to the beach. Wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommend on all fronts.

  • My family and I had a wonderful time at Diana's place. We were 6 adults and we loved her place. The house was just like in the picture and as described on the page. The house is definitely a few minutes away from the coast line and just a few mins drive from the Primo beach. Diana had the fresh flower and detail descriptions of any information we should have question. She was really a phone call or a text message away when we needed her. Diana was very helpful and accommodating with our late arrival as well. We would love to come back to the laughing Buddha beach house for sure.

  • We booked for three days and left after two. The house was dreary,dark and dumpy. It was NOT clean. No locks on windows. No curtain on shower window. Utensils dirty. Neighbors questioned our stay if we were renters since that is not allowed in that community. We were very uncomfortable with that and did not want to be part of the owners deception. We asked to use the dvd and owner was unable to make that happen. Totally unsatisfied. We felt very unsafe and not a private property. We would definitely not recommmend this property to anyone and are unsure if we should use this website for future bookings. What a complete disappointment!

    Response from Diana:

    I am very sorry Carolyn's stay at the laughing buddha beach house was not up to her expectations. Out of 33 reviews of 5 star ratings I was saddened to see her one negative review, I 'm sorry she did not call me or text me to ask the home be re cleaned or looked at. I would have had a cleaning team over if she would of communicated any of the complaints she posted.
    I m was a phone call away.
    I would like to address her complaints.
    First I was out of town when she was staying and I had a housekeeper I did not know clean the house, I normally clean my home for my guests. I have fired the house keeper due to Carolyn's complaint about cleanliness.
    The complaint about the home being dark
    I m sorry she felt that way
    There are many windows, skylights in the home in which if the curtains are open plenty of sunlight streams in.
    I checked the windows had they all have locks, the neighborhood is extremely safe and all of the friendly neighbors keep a keen eye on each other's homes.
    About her complaint about the neighbors and zoning, the city of pismo beach is in conflict with the California Coastal Commission who has ordered the city to allow nightly rentals.
    There is ongoing issue regarding airbnb rentals and city governments
    ( please review airbnb s info on this ongoing issue )
    I ask all my guests to be very considerate of noise, parking and be kind to all of the full time neighbors so airbnb continues to thrive and me too.
    The DVD player was working as noted by Vanessa my assistant when I was out of town.

    Once again I think if you look at all three of my listings I have had great reviews.
    I realize my home will not please everyone.
    It's a unique cozy non cookie cutter sweet cottage by the sea. I do my very best to have fresh flowers organic teas and coffees shampoo soap and towels all provided for my guests
    I love airbnb and am grateful to have had a such fantastic experience renting out my personal home to wonderful people.

  • Diana's place in Pismo was unbelievable. The pictures don't even do it justice, it was the perfect slice of paradise for a quick weekend away. Her place is about a two minute walk away from the beach on a quiet street, the ideal place to relax and hang out. She gave us some great restaurant recommendations, and was very quick to answer any questions we had about the listing. I can also attest to her incredible abilities as a masseuse; myself and my friend each had a massage with her and needless to say, she's amazing. We are already planning our next trip back to Diana's!

  • perfect place to relax and regroup with my sister. i flew in from Vermont for a memorial service for one of my other sisters and whew! this was the absolute right place. music was softly playing when we walked in, soft lighting, the most comfortable beds EVER!!!! close to the ocean and a wonderful small bakery/cafe.

  • The laughing buddha beach house is a mixture of cozy and sexy! If you are ever in the Pismo beach area, stay here. I have always wanted to have a house like that and I got to feel home away from home. Diana was so wonderful and sweet, which made us feel very welcomed. We can't wait to return for a longer stay!

  • Diana's Buddha beach house was just what we needed. Very peaceful and relaxing. We used it as a base to explore the beautiful San Luis Bay region from Guadalupe to Avila Beach. Next time we may just sit back and relax as you do not need a car to enjoy Diana's charming Shell Beach neighborhood. It is just a short walk to the beach, groceries and good restaurants. Hurry though as the neighborhood has been discovered and and is being destroyed by an influx of out of scale mini mansions that give no thought to their surroundings. That being said Shell beach is still a reminder of an older more simple California beach town. We loved it and will be back.

  • Adorable house! Stayed for 1 night with my boyfriend and we were very comfortable. Great place for a little getaway.

    February 2014
  • Diane's comfy old beach bungalow decorated in a sort of new age Victorian motif served as a pleasant overnight stop on our trip from San Diego to Monterey. We got there just in time for sunset on the nearby beach, and then dinner at a friendly eatery (Alex Bar-B-Q) within easy walking distance. Slept well, and after breakfast at another pleasant nearby cafe (Zorro's) we were off. A short but enjoyable stay in a very nice location. Diane wasn't there, but all was arranged for us just as she promised. Thank you, namaste!

    November 2012
  • Quiet, romantic and comfortable house! Diana is very warm and friendly and quick to respond via email. The location is beautiful and such a short walk to the ocean and restaurants and a grocery.
