About this listing
Great place for a beach town getaway, or a travel break in-between L.A. and S.F. Conveniently located with lots to do within walking distance, i.e., the beach, restaurants, hiking, etc. Once the room is reserved, I email a local guidebook.

I'm located within 10 minutes walking distance to the beach (4 blocks). Pismo Beach is the widest, longest beach on the Central California Coast and is a continuous stretch south for miles.
The north entrance to Pismo State Beach is a few blocks away. From there you can access Oceano Dunes State Park. This is the only drive-on beach in California where tourist operate vehicles, camp on the beach, use ATV's and ride horses oceanside. ATV rentals are available within walking distance and horse rentals within a few minutes drive. The sprawling local Oceano Dunes (3,600 acres) are a natural phenomena not to be missed.
A low cost, municipal golf course (9-hole) is located beachside and within walking distance. Other close by activities include, kayak rentals, surfing, numerous hikes with incredible views, winery tours, farmers markets, etc. If you're a gambler there's also a small poker casino (Central Coast Casino) within walking distance.
You'll be able to stroll to several different types of restaurants close by; Thai, Seafood, BBQ, Italian, Mexican, Breakfast Diners, Chinese, Sushi, etc.. Mongo's Saloon, a music venue & sports bar is within 2 blocks.
If you prefer to travel by train, the Grover Beach train station (GVB-Amtrak-Surfliner) is within a 5 minute walk to the premises. Upon arrival I'll be happy to help transport your luggage from the station to get you settled in.

Yancy was great. He was there when we arrived later than planned, but also had a way for us to get in if he were still at work. He provided plenty of information about the area and was easily approachable/reachable if we had any questions or needed anything. The room is great and we had the entire first floor to ourselves - just as the description says.
Yancy was a great host! He was very welcoming and makes you feel at home. I would definitely stay here again.
Yancy gave us a very warm welcome, so that we felt home from the first moment.
The room and the whole house are very tidy, sympathetic and well located. It is only a 10-minute-walk to the beach.
There are different restaurants in the neighbourhood, most of the only few footsteps away. Yancy gave us many advises where we could go for dinner.
Yancy is maybe the most friendly host, we have ever met on our many holiday trips. So I can recommend Yancy and his home to everyone, who wants to stay in Grover Beach overnight or for several days.
This is how AirBnB should always be!
Yancy's the best host one could hope for. He's friendly, warm and helpful with tourist suggestions. He prepared an in-depth guidebook and even a little welcome gift upon my arrival! The bedroom and washroom were in immaculate condition and the entire stay was akin to a 5 star experience. The location was excellent as it was just minutes away from the beach and other amenities. I would definitely make this my port of call the next time I visit the Central Coast. Thanks for a lovely stay Yancy!
Yancy was a very warm and welcoming host! He was very uncomplicated, we could arrive at any time and he prepared a list with suggestions what to do in Pismo Beach! The rooms were very clean and the bed was so comfortable! The equippement of the bathroom and the refrigerator were perfect! We unfortunately were on the drive through but you can spend there definitely more time!
We had a great time at Yancy's! He is an incredibly accommodating host, and the local guidebook that he provided us with was fantastic! His place is located about a 5 minute walk from Grover Beach, where you can easily walk to the Pismo Pier in about 20 minutes or so. He has some beautiful artwork in/around the room that was really delightful.
