Enjoy a quiet stay in beautiful Shell Beach, California! This peaceful studio is located just steps away from the beach.

The studio DOES NOT come with a kitchen, however it does have a small refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster and coffee maker. There is not a counter top area to prepare meals in the studio. If you are planning a trip where you are able to prepare food other than what can be heated in a microwave you may want to research a different listing.

Check in is after 3:30 p.m and check out is by 12:00p.m. If you require a super late check in, or if I am unable to personally check you in due to a prior commitment, then instructions are available for "self check in." Please remember if checking in super late with self check in that neighbors are sleeping, thank you!

During your stay, you can expect very private accommodations. The surrounding neighborhood is very low key complete with the Shell Beach Library. There are occasional residential noises such as garbage trucks and doggies barking, but they are minimal. Also, nearby is historic Dinosaur Park where once a month visitors can enjoy local artists showcasing their work. During the summer, Shell Beach is quite lucky to enjoy the migration of Humpback Whales so if you are interested in whale watching Shell Beach is definitely the place to be!
If you would like to venture beyond Shell Beach during your stay, the city offers a great transit system as well as local trolley to places such as downtown Pismo Beach, Avila Beach and the factory outlets. If you are interested in golfing or wine tasting while you are visiting there are several local golf courses as well as wine tasting venues. Most definitely, this studio will allow you to truly enjoy an amazing beach community. Not only will you love your stay but you will definitely want to return for many years to come!
I am a dog lover and have a great, calm well behaved German Pointer mix and (2) adorable doxies. Unfortunately, I am no longer able to accommodate guests who are traveling with pets. My own dog crew requires use of the yard and it can be a bit challenging when accommodating visiting pets.
*If you have severe pet allergies, for your own comfort, you may want to consider another listing.
During your stay the following rules will apply: you must be at least 18 to rent studio, NO DRUGS, NO SMOKING INSIDE STUDIO OR ON PREMISES (this includes electronic cigarettes), no guests under 21 will be allowed to drink on premises, no loud music, no parties, no removing host items from property, no guests allowed other than those listed on reservation, no leaving heating devices, etc. unattended, no disturbing of neighbors. The neighborhood itself is extremely quiet so basically if you are interested in renting a place to party this location is not the property for you. During check-in, please be prepared to provide current identification and to agree to house rules.
Lisa makes it easy to feel at home right away, everything is well prepared and thoughtfully explained. She has a tremendous amount of knowledge of the area if you ask.
The location is absolutely perfect for a beach getaway, the beach is steps away and amazing food to be eaten even for stubborn "foodies".
The neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful, the entrance to the 101 freeway is practically visible from the house; so getting around the neighborhood and city is super easy and convenient.
If your adventurous it's only 20-30 mins to SLO, or if you go another 15 minutes further you can enjoy incredible wine tasting in Paso Robles.
This location is perfect whether you want to stay in Pismo Beach or go exploring to surrounding cities and Lisa is an amazing host that is more than accommodating.
Lisa is a wonderful host. We enjoyed our stay in her Studio in Pismo Beach. She provided us with everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer due to our travel plans. I highly recommend Lisa's place for a relaxing get away.
We had a wonderful stay at Lisa's studio. It was decorated so nicely and she even had some Valentine's candy for us. The description was right on and the location is fantastic. We will definitely be going back!
The description of the studio was spot on. Our timing was such that Lisa graciously met us in the driveway. The space was clean and utilitarian; the location was absolutely perfect for our needs, and the bargain price was a big plus.
Best use of a granny flat ever! We were very comfortable. All Lisa's thoughtful added extras made this heaps better than staying in a hotel. Lisa herself was available exactly the right amount. Definitely good option if driving up/down the coast.
We had a really great experience staying in Shell Beach. The studio is really well put together, modern, and makes great use of the space. Everything was so thought out and the studio was very comfortable. I would definitely recommend others to stay here as well. Thanks again for a wonderful weekend!
Our stay at Lisa's studio guesthouse was wonderful! Lisa greeted us when we arrived (with her cute, sleepy puppy!) and showed us around. The studio is immaculately clean and very cozy - perfect for our weekend trip. It's a short walk down the street to the cliffs, and also within walking distance to restaurants. Lisa thought of every detail to make our stay pleasant. We visit the Central Coast quite often, and this place is a find - we will definitely be back! Thank you, Lisa, for your hospitality!
Hi there! I hope you will consider visiting us in beautiful Shell Beach, California! I have lived on the Central Coast for most of my life and absolutely love it! Shell Beach is an amazing community where I am able to spend a great deal of time outdoors. I love to hike and have 3 great dogs who are truly my loyal buddies! I try to spend as much time with family and friends as possible and love to savor all that the Central Coast has to offer. I have been lucky to travel to Europe several times and other areas such as Costa Rica. I tend to be a pretty laid back person who enjoys her time off from work as much as possible. I really enjoy trying new restaurants and can offer a great deal of advice as to where to visit while you are staying on the Central Coast. I look forward to having you as my guest!
