About this listing
This is a room inside our cozy home in a quiet cul-de-sac a couple blocks from the beach and walking distance to local resorts and restaurants. Shell Beach is a small, eclectic community where everyone wants to live and no one wants to leave.
**Please contact us about availability before booking and PLEASE READ the entire description.**
We are the perfect stop for visitors passing by on Highway 101 – with easy freeway access, gas station, and gourmet deli nearby. Most importantly, our guests tell us that our the double bed is very comfortable!
Shell Beach is a quaint community on California's Central Coast. This is a small town where the beach is within walking distance no matter where you are. We love it here and feel very grateful to live in such a beautiful place. We live in a comfortable 1970's house in a quiet cul-de-sac. We are a five-minute walk from nearby beach resorts where you can grab happy hour and watch one of our amazing sunsets. Or if you'd rather BYOB and picnic, you can walk to the beach or one of the nearby parks (and surf spot) a block away. We're also within walking distance to 2 coffee shops, a brew house, sushi, and a great little Mexican restaurant.
A few of the fun activities nearby: hiking, kayaking, surfing, biking, wine tasting – we are smack dab in the middle of wine country!
• 5 minute drive to Pismo Beach (3 wine bars, restaurants, pier, beach, billiards, bowling, clam chowder, monarch butterflies)
• 10 minute drive to Avila Beach (6 wine tasting rooms, restaurants, pier, beach, concerts)
• 12 minute drive to San Luis Obispo (wine bars, shopping, restaurants, pubs, art)

Interaction with Guests
We are a pretty active couple and are busy most weekends, but if time allows we are more than happy to give the local tour and lots of recommendations.
We live in a quiet neighborhood that's great for walks, sunsets, and watching surfers. We're within walking distance to several coffee shops, restaurants, bars, a park to watch our gorgeous sunsets, and a great market/deli.
Restaurants, bars, parks, beaches and coffee shops are within walking distance. There's also a FREE trolley stop just one block from our house that travels to Pismo Beach and Avila Beach.
Other Things to Note
We kindly request that you do not park in the driveway. Instead, you'll find plenty of parking in the cul-de-sac along the street. Unfortunately, we have some road work going on in Shell Beach, but there is still plenty of street parking.
• Enjoy yourself!

Felt very good, welcome, as if we were at home.
Nice house, good location, comfortable bed, equiped bathroom.7Very lind and helpful people.
Sadly we didn't meet Laureen & Brian. We arrived late, went out for dinner, and had to leave very early. They were very helpful communicating via text and we found everything the way it was promised or described. The house was clean, the neighbourhood was nice and their little street offered enough parking space for our rental.
We would have loved to meet Laureen & Brian and missed out on breakfast muffins!
Laureen and Brian were both incredibly friendly and their neighborhood, house, and room were all incredibly cute. I needed a place to stay for the night and this worked out perfectly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this listing for anybody looking to pass through San Luis Obispo or even stay for a while.
Laureen made it easy for me to have access to my room even before she met me. She is kind and helpful, while giving me all the privacy I needed.
I felt safe in her neighborhood, sleeping well in the comfortable bed with the windows open.
Her home is a block from the park on the ocean cliffs where I happily spent the early evening reading and watching the shore birds.
Her breakfast muffins hit the spot, right before I hit the road.

Our stay at with Laureen and Brian was great! Everything was as advertised and our host was lovely. We were able to see several hot spots in Pismo Beach during our stay and breakfast was tasty :) I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone visiting the area!
I had a lovely time staying here! Laureen and Brian were incredibly nice and had a lot of great suggestions for places to visit in and around Pismo. :)
