The laughing buddha beach house ( the cottages name ) is a casual yet warm colorful calm and serene cottage to relax unwind and chill out .

Had a great time at this place. Diana was very attentive and made us feel welcome. Strongly recommend!

Wonderfully eccentric and calming beach house. We walked in to ambient music and an open half door, and checking in is a breeze. The hosue's design is noticeably old which adds to the odd charm and the decor is all very unique, much of it old and one of a kind. If you want a new experience as fat ad where you spend your nights, this is the place to be.

Diana was a great host and very attentive. The internet stopped working and she immediately got it fixed. The house is cozy and very close to ocean.

Diana's house was perfect for my family of 6. The house is so warm and inviting and has everything you could possibly need for your stay in Pismo beach. I don't think the photos do it justice it is so much nicer than what you see. Diana is friendly and it was an easy smooth process. Would defiantly stay again and would recommend her place to others.

Diana's home was so cozy and peaceful. Great location to getaway and relax for the weekend. Would definitely return.

This comfortable, darling, funky house is in beautiful Shell Beach. If you are looking for a pristine, sterile spot, this is NOT your place, but if the idea of a cozy, comfortable hippie pad (and I mean this in the BEST possible way) is your kind of spot, you will love Diana's darling beach house.

Diana User Profile

I am a world traveler, counseling astrologer and Thai Esalen Massage therapist .
Mom of two grown daughters and now a grand daughter!
I am friendly warm and knowledgeable about the area. I have been here on the beach since 1985. I have to pinch myself I live here San Luis Obispo the happiest place in the USA according to Oprah is 10 miles away ! . Stunning uncrowded beaches . Hiking most amazing!! Wine tasting everywhere .Sea life in the back yard. Great arts and music near by and the famous farmers market on Thursdays.

I love to share our area with guests and have been doing so for 15 years as a vacation rental hostess and private guest retreat for small groups who are respectful to all the lovely neighbors who live here full time as well as myself as I live in my home when guests are not in.
I am open minded to all genders . Love dogs,which we accept as long as their well behaved quite and I get to pet them! ( please read pet policy and additional fees )
The house is a haven and sanctuary of peace and tranquility and great for a romantic get away, I m looking to book guests who are looking for a quite peaceful abode only. The home is not conducive to parties of any type as the neighbors are sensitive to noise and our town politics will shut down Airbnb style stays with any complaints from locals.
I respect your privacy and lead a busy life. Most of my guests have remained my friends .
Cheers and thank you !
