We love the location, walking distance to the beach, stores, grocery, restaurants, library and Post office. We love the unassuming Central Coast from SLO to Cambria. We love that the cottage has a frog, stove/oven, sink and microwave.

This self contained spotless cottage has everything you need for a week on the beach. A gas grill and cafe table just outside the door makes meals a breeze. The sound of the waves and gentle sea breezes always let's you know you are steps away from having your feet in the sand. I'll be making this an annual event! Thank you for the most relaxing vacation.

Great location 1 block to beach!
Property needs some renovation. Roof was recently replaced, but water stain marks on the ceiling were still visible. Inside needs to be repainted. Kitchen sink counter needs to be covered or replaced. Light switch in bathroom need to be replaced. Wood floor needs to be refinished. Front brick entrance needs to be reset and wood posts at the front door need to be replaced.
Thank you for staying with us! We are so glad you had a great time! We take guest feedback seriously and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests. We will be sure to follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!

Great small cottage for two people.
Some deferred maintenance - painting, repairs, outside of property need attention.
Hi James! Thanks for your feedback. We value your suggestions surrounding the condition of the home and welcome the opportunity to improve our homes for future guests. We appreciate you notifying us so we can make sure these are addressed. We hope to host you again in the future!

This was a great little place! Nice central location,you can walk to any plkace in town. Kitchen was easy to cook in. Very quiet at night. Loved it!!
Melissa G.Sep 2020
Outstanding location. All the amenities you need for a perfect getaway. Dont miss the famous smoked taco stand or the community at Cayucos Coffee, both less than a block from this sweet apartment. Both observe social distancing! Love this kind and welcoming community!

Sweet little cottage in the Cayucos village. A bit noisy in the mornings being next to the post office, however I'm an early riser so it didn't bother me. Enjoy!

Loved every minute in this cute historic home!

Great location and very cute cottage. Clean.

My husband & I have spent one week at the Carriage House for the fifth year in a row! It's a small cottage, but the bed is comfy, and the location is perfect for us. The kitchen sink area is particularly small, but the medium-size fridge and oven are more than adequate. The bathroom offers a small shower, but lots of hot water, and the new corner sink is great! The TV is also small, but fine if that's not a priority. Convenient parking is available, and the beach is a 1.5 block walk. We hope to stay again!

Perfect for overflow for two, for our family 4rth of July get together. We have relatives in town, but they couldn't accommodate us all. Great location, within walking distance of all Cayucos has to offer. Thanks!

So close to the beach and smell of cookies in the morning..
Thomas B.Jun 2019
Good space, not enough parking and no A/C the only drawbacks. Very close to the beach, Within walking distance to everything.

The location is prefect for walking to the beach and several local restaurants.

my wife and I had a wonderful time during our stay at Cayucos.
Although the water heater went out the second night we were there, Christina was on it right away and took care of it before we returned from our day out. I still give this fairy tale cottage a five star because we felt at home and the staff treated us like family. We are very much looking forward to a return next year.

Right in the downtown area

The title alone tells you that we've enjoyed our time in Cayucos, all the more since we've been able to stay at the Carriage House. While small, it offers a queen-size bed (soft 'n comfy), ample closet & drawer space, a hot shower, and a nice living space & kitchenette. The location is excellent, an easy walk to the beach. You should take a good fan for both air circulation and masking the noise of the post office vehicles which have a staging area immediately next door. One disappointment for us is the tiny corner sink in the bathroom, which means it's hard to wash your hands, let alone your face! Nonetheless, the Carriage House is a great option, and we would choose to stay again!

Very cozy, perfect for a couple. Great to stay especially if with a larger group at the crow’s nest or captain’s quarters.
Kimberly A.Apr 2018
Conveniently located to downtown and the beach, but with a private feeling at the same time!
Cathy S.Nov 2017
This is my second time staying at the Carriage House. And as usual we loved staying there. The only issue is the bed is too soft and it hurts my back. Also, the couch is very uncomfortable, would be nice to lay on it.
Sandra B.Nov 2017
Perfect for one or two.. small but cozy.
Michelle C.Oct 2017
Love it !!!
Claudia S.Oct 2017
Best thing about this rental is the location. Walking distance to restaurants, beach, antiquing. The negatives - Couch is very uncomfortable. Television is too small. Bathroom sink is too small to even brush your teeth. Flimsy walls in shower. Needs a screen door to allow some cool air on a warm day. No working smoke alarm.
This Carriage House is over 100 years old, and while it's on the small side, it does have more space than a hotel room. We have submitted the comments from this review to the owner in order for her to determine what can be done. The location in the heart of Cayucos really is a great spot, and we find most guests are quite happy with the arrangements. Thank you!

The location of this unit is its greatest asset. Less than a block from “downtown” Cayucos, less than 2 blocks to the beach. The unit itself is small and rustic, with a small kitchenette, with a bit of a cabin feel. There are only curtains separating the bedroom from the living room, and bathroom from the bedroom; no interior doors. Overall we liked it for the price and location, though the interior could use some upgrading (bed and couch for sure), the unit was clean and cozy.
Elizabeth R.Sep 2017
Fantastic location, park your car for the whole weekend and walk everywhere! The Carriage House was funky and charming, comfortable bed, nice patio. Great place for a beach get a way, bringing my whole family back in June and renting the complete Salt box.
Caution, you may gain a few pounds the brown butter bakery and the Cass Bakery they are scrumptious!

My husband and I have stayed at the Carriage House for a week in early July during the past 3 years. The location is excellent, and the accommodations (comfy bed, warm shower, clean small refrigerator and oven, DirectTV) are very good for a couple or single guest.
