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. Oh yeah, we have a HUGE backyard.
We are a five minute walk from nearby beach resorts where you can grab happy hour and watch one of our amazing sunsets. If that's too far, we have a really nice park (and surf spot) a block away. We're also within walking distance to 2 coffee shops and a great little Mexican restaurant ($2 tacos, $2 Coronas)!
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 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. The perfect location for Cal Poly parents or anyone visiting students.

A bottle of wine was waiting for us and the beach was waiting for us five minutes walking distance away. Perfect location with happenings within a short driving distance. Excellent backyard scene as well. I recommend this joint.
Very responsive and professional host! Definitely went above and beyond expectation by accommodating our large group and promptly answering questions we had during our stay!
We went for a weekend retreat, one couple and a friend. The house is very nice, clean and well furnished. We loved the back yard and grill the and the Roku box was a very cool bonus!
We recommend this place very much and Brian was very helpful and nice to allow us for a late checkout!
We had a terrific stay at Brian's beachside home over Easter weekend! We had 2 families: 4 adults, and 4 kids ages 10 months to 4 years old and it was the perfect space for us. Has everything you need, and definitely appreciated the Netflix/Roku box for the kids. Great location for exploring the area, and just 10 minutes to SLO downtown. Would definitely stay here again!
Excellent house and location. Very accommodating hosts. Huge backyard and the ocean is literally around the corner. Very close to oceano dunes, great restaurants, wineries, san luis obispo and much more. Will definitely recommend this to anybody.
Absolutely wonderful stay in Pismo. The house was exactly as advertised. Brian left us useful tips for activities to do in the area and had bikes for us to use to explore the area. He even left us a bottle of wine and some snacks in the fridge to welcome us! Would definitely stay again, we had a great time.
Great location and the perfect backyard for grilling and hanging out. Brian was very responsive and even left a notebook of local suggestions.
Brian's house in Shell Beach, walking distance to the Spyglass Inn, is a lovely & comfortable place to stay. We (my dear friend, her husband, and twin 5 year olds) had plenty of space to share while we prepared for our friend's wedding. The home's Asian motif was relaxing and serene. We loved the backyard as well! Thank you for being such gracious hosts! We highly recommend this home :-)
This was a beautiful experience for our family! It was a perfect central location for northern California and southern California family members to meet. Brian's home is well kept and in a beautiful location. We had a great time that could not have been had at any Hotel! Additionally, Brian was so helpful with information about the local area, what to do, etc. we had a great time at Brian's home.
Laureen and Brian were great. We all had a wonderful time, and still missed their big and serene backyard. ;0)
