I generally only rent when I am away. I will consider requests to stay while I am here on an individual basis.
Pretty quiet, nice area.
Some traffic sounds from Hwy One

Quiet neighbourhood. Enjoy yourselves. There are people living downstairs, so I try to keep noise to a minimum after 9pm.
We booked almost at the last minute, which was really helpful for our plans as the timing was just right. By coincidence we and Philip were both in Santa Cruz the night before our stay, and we had a nice chat over some food - fellow Brits abroad! - and he was able to give us some useful tips on the area, including where to go out for food & drink. The next day we drove down to Cayucos via the Pacific Coast Highway and were very pleased to find a spacious, comfortable home to relax in.
While there was noise from the nearby road during the day, it was never really an issue, and the area was otherwise very quiet, and we were left undisturbed, which was great.
There was no aircon, and we had a minor heatwave at the start of our stay, but with windows open to catch the breeze it stayed cool enough. The house definitely felt lived-in, and it wasn't immaculately clean (the kitchen needed a bit of TLC) but for all that it was a really nice place to stay, with plenty of character. Perfect for just chilling out for a while on the coast.
Phil is a great host. He made my stay a very pleasant one. We shared meals and the whole atmosphere was relaxed and peaceful, just what I was looking for. He played beautiful music on the keyboard as I cooked. It was delightful. Cayucos is situated between Morro Bay and Cambria, a perfect location & sunsets are gorgeous. Beach access is right across the highway and easy to get to. His home was well taken care of, clean and welcoming. I would recommend his place to anyone in a heart beat.
Had a very nice time. His place is great- perfect spot for our up and down the coast excursions! Very comfortable and 'homey'-
I spent one night at Philip's place. The location is fantastic and the house is very comfortable and close to the beach. Philip replied instantly and organizing everything was simple. Overall a very recommendable host and place!
I am an Englishman living in California. I have a small house-painting business, but when I'm on holiday I like to do coloured-pencil drawings and take photographs. I like to swim, to read and to explore museums and architecture. I am in my 40s.
