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)
We've highlighted all of our favorite hangouts in our Airbnb Guidebook!
Your private bathroom and shower is located across the hallway. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen and put food in the fridge, the grill in the backyard, hang out in the front room, and store bikes/surfboards in the garage.
Continental breakfast of coffee, tea, and muffins is provided and you are more than welcome to use the kitchen to make your own meals.
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 family friendly 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 than that Uber or a cab are your best bets if you don't have a car or don't feel like driving.
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 as you pull into the driveway (right side please).
