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.

Perfect space-private, clean and cozy. Good location- we went on a jog to the beach and lots of places for food/drinks nearby. Yancy was very friendly and welcoming. Thanks!!
Yancy's place is a perfect pied-à-terre to discover Pismo Beach.
Tastefully furnished with private bathroom, the room is quiet and comfortable (you have the ground floor in full, Yancy lives on the 1st floor) in a quiet area with a few restaurants, only 10 minutes walk from the beach.
Yancy is a welcoming great host that makes you feel at home, very helpful, with lots of good advice about the area.
I highly recommend this address and thank you Yancy for our very pleasant stay in your home !
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans la chambre que propose Yancy. Meublée avec goût, salle de bain privée, la chambre est calme et confortable (vous disposez du rez-de-chaussée en entier, Yancy habite au 1er étage), dans un quartier calme avec quelques restaurants, à seulement 10 minutes à pieds de la plage.
Yancy est un hôte super accueillant qui vous fait sentir comme à la maison, très prévenant, avec plein de bons conseils sur les environs.
Je recommande vivement cette adresse et j'y retournerai avec plaisir !
If you're looking to stay near Pismo Beach, I'd absolutely recommend Yancy's place. It's like a comfortable suite with a pleasant bedroom and private bathroom -- and it has some very nice features including complimentary candy bars, peanuts, small bottles of wine, and a well-stocked little refrigerator with juice, soda, and (my personal favorite and an airbnb rarity) soymilk. Yancy also gives you a very detailed guide to the area's restaurants, stores, etc., which is quite helpful if it's your first time there. Finally, don't pass up the chance to start the morning chatting with Yancy over a cup of coffee. He's an exceptionally warm and amiable host; he's created some spectacular computer-generated art; plus, he has some great stories of picnics at Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz's ranch.
Beatifull and welcoming house, the room is very nice and very cleaned and full of detailsin an amazing place(we love Pismo Beach) and Yancy is wonderful, very funny and lovely person.
Thank you for everything Yancy.
Calm neighbourhood within easy reach of one of the most beautiful beaches. Yancy is very professional and takes amazing care of his place. I had a very comfortable stay, much better than some hotel stays I've had. Yancy also provides a great guide of the area, which was super helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
We did love our stay with Yancy! The room was perfect, the internet connection was really good and we could not asked for a more friendly host than him! He showed us his work, which is by the way amazing and helped us where he could!
Yancy has bought the house two years ago and renovated it all by his own - but belive me, you would never guess that because it's perfecty done!
