THE GOOD:
- The house has a lovely ocean view.
- It's interior layout provides lots of privacy and quiet.
- We had a baby napping in one part of the house and couldn't hear a peep from the other areas of the house.
- Cayucos is a cool old-school California beach town. Neighboring Morro Bay has good seafood restaurants.
- The beach is a four minute walk.
- The sound of the ocean at night from the master bedroom is wonderful.

THE NOT SO GOOD:
- It's right on the road and when you open the windows to enjoy the ocean breeze, it's as though cars and trucks are driving through your living room - not a ton of traffic, but a constant flow - not so much at night. It's easy enough to get used to I guess.
- The carpet in the lower levels of the house is really dirty. It's from people walking in the house with dirty, sandy feet. Leaving a hose outside to wash feet would help a lot.
- There was zero dishwashing detergent or laundry detergent - this amenity exists in every other Vacasa property we've visited.
- The internet was DSL. (For those too young to know what that is, I had DSL in 1998). The DSL stopped working completely, which made it impossible to Zoom into our kids' classes.
- The Vacasa technician who came to help with Internet wore a bandana face covering. When he entered, he kindly removed his shoes, and also his bandana.
- Of the two beds I slept in, one bed squeaked loudly when you roll over. The other had plastic covering that rustled (remove).
- The plastic table and chairs on the balcony off the master bedroom are dried out, dirty, and moldy - probably 15 years old - and spoil the balcony.
- The kitchen sink spigot has two temperatures: cold and scalding hot. Unfortunately, the cold water only comes out at a trickle. So to get enough water pressure to efficiently do dishes, I would opt for the scalding water and burn my hands about 25 times per day.
- The TV (and couches) has been updated from the picture on the website, but the TV has a big dark streak running vertically from top to bottom right down the middle of the screen.
- The cable / internet connection that the TV uses is terrible and therefore pauses every few seconds. Hard to watch news or live sports.
- The tank of propane ran out and there was no back up tank. The back up tank was delivered by the Vacasa technician about 18 hours after I called Vacasa. That was unfortunate because I had marinated some awesome kebabs for lunch - and like every other Vacasa property I've used, I expected a back up tank.
- The lightbulb in the fridge is out.
- FYI - There aren't any beach toys for kids.
Manager response:
Hi, Masha! The carpets will be cleaned, an internet tech has handled the internet situation, and we will replace the patio furniture and shower heads if it is deemed necessary after inspection. Your feedback is so helpful, and we hope you will come back to see the improvements we have made because of it. Thank you!

This is a very nice split level home with 4 levels which provide excellent sizing and spatial separation. The house is well built with no floor creaking, although some items have seen wear and tear such as the carpet, windows and blinds.

Now let's talk about Vacasa: I saw the sign on the refrigerator about a five star experience and I thought I would document our experience so far. We arrived at 5 pm. The lock box worked fine. The garage door opener looks like somebody was dismantling it so it is not functional. No issue since I pushed up the garage door up by hand. But it is not locked so anyone can push open the garage door from the outside and gain entry. Next there was a pile of towels by the washing machine. The washer was loaded with bedding and the dryer with more towels. I finished up the laundry after 6 hours. Next the TV is damaged with a dark vertical bar down the center. The patio was dirty. The biggest issue is with a large amount of BBQ grease on the patio. I tracked that into the house before I figured out what it was. I cleaned up the grease and patio is OK now but that was a time consuming job. The dishwasher was filled with dishes so I ran the dishwasher again since some of the dishes were still dirty. The internet gateway was showing a red broadband connection. After multiple reboots and reseating the cables it seems to be working but it's a slower DSL phone internet, don't expect much more than 4Mbps download. Of lesser importance; the refrigerator light is out, the reverse osmosis machine is not working, there are missing window screens upstairs and there were crumbs under the toaster which is an indicator of a hasty cleanup. I contacted the Vacasa property manager (CM-H) via email but received no reply.

The Vacasa system is very automated and the software works well, so no issue there. We all had a good time at the property after we finished the incomplete cleaning.

The location and space were perfect for our family.
Amy Y. Jun 2020
We had an amazing 5 days in Cayucos. This house was large and let everyone have their own space. It is walking distance to the beach for gorgeous sunsets and we often rode our bikes to dinner. Perfect location for our family.

So clean , great ocean view. We did not want to leave.
Karen B. Jan 2020
This was our second time at this property. It perfectly suits our need with multiple beds. Very clean and great location to the beach and downtown
Bob N. Jan 2020
Stayed there for years. Very comfortable for large group.

great time

Great location and views!

This home was the perfect location and size for all of our activities. We are a non-profit that conducts surf camps for special needs children. Although participants are local, we fly in our instructors from North Carolina and needed a large home and large garage to hold all of our surfboards, wetsuits, life guards and a ton of other stuff.

This house it’s in a great location especially for the July 4 parade! We have rented this home for many years and have enjoyed spending family time here. It could use some updating such as a flat screen TV in the living room and if you other things but if you’re looking for a nice home and a great location this is it
Sandra B. Jun 2019
What’s not to love? This is our second stay here in six months. It’s a great house that sleeps ten comfortably. Location is great... It a block from beach access and a 15 min walk to down town. The kitchen is well stocked except for the broken waffle iron from “1902” 😁. Truly the best vacation our family had. We’ll definitely be back!
Elodina D. May 2019
Loved the house, it was very well kept and so clean. It was located 5 mins away from the beach in Cayucos, about 15 mins from Morro Bay and 30 from Pismo. The house was just a 5 min walk from the shops and eateries in town. Such a great spot and we couldn't have been happier.
Crystal T. May 2019
Enjoyed this spacious property in Cayucos that accommodated are large family. Would definitely use this rental again for future family trips.

My friends and I rented this home for a small getaway of 4 days. The kitchen was well stocked, we cooked and dined on the patio. The home was comfortable, laid out well for privacy and spacious! We truly enjoyed walking into town and along the beach. We took advantage of the late checkout option for an additional fee, it was well worth it.
Sherry M. Dec 2018
Location is great and view.
Daniel W. Oct 2018
Location, we were within walking distance of restaurants, a nice coffee place and the beach. The layout, with an open area from the kitchen to the living room we could cook and watch a lot of baseball and football. Nice place overall.

We stayed for 8 nights at 701 Ocean Ave and found the house a good size for a multi generational family of 9. The closeness to the beach access was great although the road noise was loud times at times. There was a running water noise about every 30 minutes finishing with a pipe bang, perhaps a toilet? We were never sure.
The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen were clean.
There was a grimy element to the house. The shades and windows were extremely dirty. The furniture and carpets were very worn, torn and dirty. The barbeque had an inch of fat and junk built-up; it was probably a fire hazard so we cleaned it so we could use it. The patio that the barbeque was on hadn’t been swept in a very long time. It was disgusting to walk on, so we swept it.
When we arrived there was no laundry detergent or dishwasher detergent. I called, held on the line for more than 5 minutes then emailed. I got a response the next day and was eventually given a phone number. After a call and later that evening some detergents were dropped off, enough for about 2-3 days. In the Vacasa Home Guide renters are asked to start a load of wash and start the dishwasher which is slightly ridiculous given the quantity of detergents that are supplied to the house, (a large house so a larger number of people, near the beach, for 8 nights).
We will not stay here again nor can we recommend it. The cleaning fee should be more than enough to clean the barbeque and patio, occasionally clean the windows and shades, and include enough detergents to start the process for the cleaners.
Manager response:
We apologize for any inconveniences this guest encountered during their visit. All issues mentioned in this review have been addressed. We do wish this guest had advised us of all these things during their stay so we could have better assisted them during their reservation.
Lois P. Jul 2018
We have stayed in this home for years. The amount of beds and rooms fit our family well and it is close to town and the beach.
Lynette C. Jun 2018
Great views, close to beach and shops
Victoria P. Mar 2018
Great location. There are so many properties available in this town. I would not need to stay at this location again. It wasn't clean.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see housekeeping appeared to have been lacking for this reservation. We wish the guest had contacted us so we could have corrected any oversights. We will follow-up with our team. Thanks!

It was a great place to gather a large family.
Danny G. Oct 2017
loved our stay, this house has everything you need to enjoy your stay
Alison H. Oct 2017
Amazing location! Walkable to cute shops and beach. Great open living space and tons of private rooms. No a/c but made up for by Beach breeze! Loved!
Lisa B. Oct 2017
701 So. Ocean is a great house for a large family or several couples. The layout of the house is such that the bedrooms are away from the "noisy" areas of the house. The deck outside is nice, although it is fairly small. BBQ there for use, which is great!
There are several flights of stairs, so that should be considered if anyone has difficulty walking. There are items in the garage to use at the beach, which is also a plus.
We have stayed at this house twice, and would not hesitate to rent again.
William B. Jul 2017
Our second time staying here, and we wouldn't have returned if we hadn't enjoyed it so much the first time! Great location, charming town, rental agency was very organized and responded quickly to our needs, great home, good washer and dryer, plenty of beach supplies. A great rental place!
Patrice Or Brian C. Jul 2017
House fits many people and is a short walk to the beach and anywhere in town.
