My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay at Sunny Shell Beach Euro Hideaway. It was very close to the beach and good restaurants. Pismo Beach, San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay, and Avila Beach were all short drives to get to. Stephen was a very nice host and responded quickly to any questions we had. It was a great way to spend a weekend.
I like cozy (read: small) places, so this was perfect for me. The rooms and access path are pretty funky -- the place is a 'hideaway', but more in the hideout sense. I felt like I was sneaking around as I entered and exited. Super fun :). The location is great, very quick access to a beautiful, quiet beach and food.
What a great little studio! It was perfect for my 4-day stay. Cozy and well-appointed. Comy couch and comfy bed. Stephen recommended beaches and lots of places to eat. I loved the chairs on the patio. They get great afternoon sun.
The walk to the studio is fine. I had no problem with it, but if you're uneasy on your feet, it might be a challenge (narrow stone path). Also, the kitchen sink & stove are pretty high. I'm 5'7" and had no problem washing dishes, but I could see how someone shorter might. Also, I didn't use the burner, but it's the same height.
I'm a runner, and the area has lots of good running trails. Check out Ontario Ridge Trail and Montana de Oro State Park!
I really loved staying in Steven's cozy cottage. It was a short walk to a beautiful park on the bluffs over the ocean. I am grateful to Steven because he went out of his way to let me in on late notice and make me comfortable. I highly recommend this sweet spot if you are in the Shell Beach area.
Amazing location and host! Recommend it to anyone going the Pismo beach area.
We arrived later than expeceted, but Stephen was really nice and gave us information about what to do.
The coast was wonderful, we would've liked to stay longer!
After so many days with restaurants or fast-food it was nce to have a little kitchen.
The apartment was perfect for us and parking was really easy!
We went down to Pismo for a wedding, hoping for a place that was decent enough to rest our heads and call it good (we're new to Airbnb). We were sorely mistaken! After getting to Stephen's, we regretted only booking one night in the hideaway. Such a peaceful, comfortable, and inviting space with a great host.
The studio itself was spacious and clean- the kitchenette was a huge plus. The patio, cloaked in gorgeous greenery, was just perfect for a cozy read or good conversation. Many thanks to Stephen and his "residential beach dog" for the hospitality! We're hoping to make it back down that way for a longer stay in the near future.
Everything worked out for what we needed. Location was great and everything was clean. Coffee ready for you in the morning. Only thing to know it if it is in the summer it will be hot. There is no a/c in the studio/unit.
My husband and I stayed one night. Very homey and comfortable place to stay for a short stay. As you walk around back to enter the studio there is a beautiful, quiet and private sitting area. Stephen was great communicating with me from beginning to end. Shell Beach is a great little community. We were able to walk to dinner, breakfast, for coffee and for nice walks along the ocean. Pismo Beach is minutes away. Stephen let me know in advance that he would be out of town during our stay and his friend, Diana, would take care of everything. Diana was absolutely wonderful and made us feel very welcomed. She was available to answer any questions we had. My only concern was the very, very small shower. As an average sized woman I was barely able to fit. My husband did not attempt it. However, we would stay again for a night or two.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
