Enjoy a quiet stay in beautiful Shell Beach, California! This peaceful studio is located just steps away from the beach. Located within the heart of Shell Beach you'll be amazed at the amount of restaurants, day spas, and cafes within walking distance. The studio offers a cozy 1 bedroom, 1 bath room as well as a queen bed(mattress is med. to soft with mattress topper) and a twin size futon/couch bed. The studio does accommodate 3 but there is a $10 additional charge for the 3rd guest. The bathroom includes both a shower and tub and is inside the studio. Fresh Iinens and towels provided by host but there is no on-site laundry for guest use. Beach towels are also available. 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. There are basic items stored in the studio for guest use such as plastic ware, dishes, salt/pepper, paper towels, wine opener, wine glasses, creamer, sugar and purified water.
In addition, the studio does have satellite T.V , Wi-Fi access (please refer to house manual for code and information, manual located in the studio) and a DVD player. There is a space heater provided as well (please refer to house manual about running heater) and central heat located in the ceiling of the bathroom. A welcome snack is also provided which includes fresh fruit and muffins or pastries (this is done as a courtesy and is not included in your room charge, the items are not replaced daily). The studio is separate from the main house and located in the backyard. There is a private entrance as well as on-site parking. There is a patio with outdoor furniture outside the studio. 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." There is NO SMOKING IN THE STUDIO OR ON PREMISES, if you require a listing where you are allowed to smoke this won't be a good property to choose. No smoking also includes electronic cigarettes. Please refer to house rules before booking.
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 or if you are traveling with kids it has a great playground. 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.
The studio apartment was perfect for our stay in Pismo Beach! It was just enough space for the two of us. Completely clean and beautiful studio! Thank you, Lisa, for the muffins, fruit, and candy! She was a wonderful hostess!
Lisa's cottage is just wonderful. We stayed 3 nights and loved it. Everything we needed was there. The location is great, shops and restaurants a few minutes walk away, the sea and beaches just a minutes walk away. If you're fond of walking, birding and wildlife, this is a great place. Thank you so much Lisa for being so welcoming and helpful.
We had a wonderful time at Lisa's studio in Shell Beach! It was so quiet, and just 2 short blocks down to a truly gorgeous beach! The space was perfect -- comfortable bed, nice amenities (even breakfast rolls, fruit and coffee provided!!). And, not only is her studio close to the beach, but it is only a 10 minute drive to some delicious wineries!
Lisa goes out of her way to make the experience at her lovely home very special. We will go back!! And, I highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Pismo/Shell Beach area. Thank you Lisa!!
Lisa was very helpful and friendly. The apartment was perfect- we had everything we needed for our night. It was very clean and comfortable. Unfortunately we only stayed one night- but I am sure we will be back. I can recommend her place to everyone!:)
Lisa was incredibly warm and welcoming. We really enjoyed our stay with her. The studio is in a gorgeous neighborhood literally a minute walk from the ocean. The studio suite is cozy, clean, and bright with soft sheets on a large bed! We enjoyed sitting on back patio in the garden in the morning. Parking was easy (in the driveway!), and the room has a private entrance as it is separate from the main house. Lisa has thought of all the amenities. She had coffee and some morning breakfast items with dishes, a microwave, and mini fridge. Lots of books, DVD's, and recommendations for things to do in the area. Would love to stay here again sometime.
An Absolute delight! Lisa has all the bases covered for creating a clean and homie feel with added personal touches, I look forward to returning for another birthday celebration! Cheers!
We stay at shell beach studio. Lisa was a perfect host and give us nice advices for our stay. The studio is perfect, very clean and very quiet with everything you need.
The place is very close by foot to the pace full beach where we enjoy a beautiful sunset.
We definitively will stay here next time !
Lisa is a very thoughtful host, attentive to the smallest details to make visitors comfortable and at home.
We arrived late, and Lisa was there to welcome us and to answer our questions. We enjoyed the place, beautiful Shell Beach, and only regret that we could not stay longer.
Which is what others should do: stay longer.
Lisa was easy to communicate with and responded to my questions quickly. Upon arrival she was great to have a chat with and even recommended local dining options.
The studio had everything we needed for our stay - water, fruit, muffins, chocolates and DVDs.
Lisa was a perfect host, welcoming and attentive. Her studio was a great place to stay while we attended a Cal Poly SLO event at the Cliffs Resort (about a mile away). The room was clean, cozy, and had all the amenities. We walked to breakfast (at Zorro’s) and to the beach after. We look forward to our next stay in lovely Shell Beach!
