Great house within walking distance from pretty much everything! We had a great vacation.
Rob A. Aug 2022
Nice location. All was great
Greg F. Aug 2022
This is a great beach house. Our family of five stayed for four nights and loved the home. The location is ideal and is within walking distance to the beach, restaurants and store. I would definitely stay here again. Only suggestion would be that it’s probably time for a new couch/sofa in the living room.
Rebecca M. Jun 2022
This is our second Summer staying in this condo. We love the space, the location to the beach and town and how comfortable it is. This condo is outfitted with nearly everything you could need while on vacation. It’s hard to leave, but we look forward to returning next year!
Ronald P. May 2022
My wife and I loved staying at your home. It is a very nice home that is close to everything. Can't wait to come to that area again.

Cleanliness, convenient location. Much better than the pictures reveal. Didn’t want it to end.
Mary & Warren B. Dec 2021
Rental was located a five minute walk to downtown Cayucos and the sandy beach. The beach is perfect for walks. It is a seven mile beach walk to Morrow Bay. Rental property has two bedrooms downstairs along with a full bathroom and a washer and dryer. The upstairs has a full kitchen, comfortable living room, master bedroom and a full bath. The ocean can be seen and heard from the second floor balcony. Comfortably sleeps six. The couch in the living room offers sleep space for an additional two. I recommend this rental.
Michelle C. Oct 2021
Super clean really nicely decorated awesome location definitely gonna come back
Wendy O. Aug 2021
The condo is very comfortable- bedrooms and living area is very modern and bathrooms and kitchen were spotless. Just a half block walk to the beach entrance and a block to the pier and restaurants.
Kimberly R. Aug 2021
This is our third time staying at this property and nothing can beat the location. We love it since it is steps to the beach, a quick walk to the Paul Andrew park, and centrally located for the restaurant’s off the main street which is great for families with younger children. We have noticed during our multiple stays that they are making upgrades to the interior. Overall, this location is great and meets our needs.
Manager response:
Hi, Kimberly! We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We passed your comments along to our local manager to review and we appreciate guest’s preferences as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting your next stay!
Mark P. Jul 2021
Near town and beach. Clean, spacious and comfortable. Only problem: Direct TV was disconnected (dish missing), but other channels available. Garages were spacious.
Manager response:
Hi, Mark! We apologize the cable was out due to an incident during work on the deck. This will be corrected by the provider as soon as possible. Thank you!
Richard H. Mar 2021
Great location, close to everything you will need for your stay. Comfortable quarters
Jody H. Feb 2021
This home was centrally located and an easy walk eateries in downtown. House was very comfortable! Thank you Vacasa!
greg L. Oct 2020
This was a really nice home with a good view but the front door was almost impossible to open we had to go the garage door the time we we their. Could not get anybody to fix it not could we get a garage door opener to make life easyer

Matthew P. Aug 2020
House was just as described. Communication very clear and professional. Right next to the beach, amazing location. Nothing to improve here, a perfect experience!
Mark P. Aug 2020
Spacious and close walking distance to beach.
Sheri D. Jun 2020
Not only is a kid-friendly beach just a half a block away, the house has new hardwood floors and a fully equipped kitchen, comfy beds, and plenty of room to spread out. Also in walking distance-a smoked fish deli, ice cream shop, and 3 story antique shop. A dream vacation!
Debbie C. Mar 2020
We had a great stay! Great location and staff! Will definitely stay here!
Michael M. Feb 2020
Clean, comfortable, and well stocked in a great location.
Afreen M. Jan 2020
We loved this place! It is extremely well stocked in all areas, particularly in the kitchen. Our family loves to cook when we get together, and we found all kinds of kitchen supplies and it made our stay extremely pleasant and enjoyable. In addition, the beds are comfortable. For entertainment, we had access to the smart TV, stereo w/ bluetooth speakers to play our desired music and many board game options. The location is great, the house was clean and check in was super simple. Would stay here again in heartbeat!
Deborah S. Dec 2019
We rented this condo right before the holidays looking to relax. It was very clean and the perfect fit for our family of 5. The condo has everything you could need. So close to downtown Cayucos, we just walked. Thanks for the perfect weekend.
Lisa P. Nov 2019
Nice to be walking distance to town and the beach. This Condo had everything we could need! Everything was just as the pictures showed
MARY M. Nov 2019
Great place to stay, Very spacious and the beds are very comfortable, walking distance from the pier, restaurants, and has a nice ocean view on the patio. We’ve been staying here for the last 10 years and we love it. One of the main reasons we stay also is that it is very affordable.
Paula R. Oct 2019
Thank you Vacasa and the owner's of the home we stayed in! The home was exactly (and more) as it was described. Very clean and well equipped. This was my first time doing business with Vacasa but it definitely won't be my last. Vacasa was very informative, polite, professional and friendly. When ever I called my questions and concerns were taken care of immediately! Thank you, Paula Rizzo
Leroy S. Sep 2019
Very clean, well stocked, and very comfortable. I’m super picky and was apprehensive about this place until we arrived. I was very pleased with the property, and everything around it. Very good location walking distance to beach access and restaurants and shopping. Will definitely use this property again!
Robert F. Sep 2019
We loved being two blocks from the beach and 2 short blocks to the downtown area. Even though the condo is located on Ocean Blvd it is very quiet. It was spotlessly clean. We would have liked some cleaning supplies as we were there two weeks, we purchased some anti-bacteria wipes. There are a handful of good restuarants within walking distance. There were two very nice beach chairs and two small ones. Plenty of linens and beach towels. The pictures and description are accurate. We would have liked an extra house key, only one is provided. We could not get the electric fireplace to work, which was not an issue, we would have only used it one night.
Manager response:
Thank you for leaving feedback, Robert! We're glad you enjoyed the location of this classic stucco ocean view condo. We apologize for any trouble with operating the electric fireplace, the on-switch is located on the top right of the unit. In addition, we'll be sure to add some cleaning products for long term stays, and an extra key is available upon request. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Nancy H. Sep 2019
Comfortable home, partial ocean view & off street parking.
We enjoyed our stay.
Home away from home!
Brenda R. Aug 2019
The quiet location 1/2 block from the beach, walk into town, well equipped kitchen, comfy beds. Some of the furniture in the living room needs replacing, stereo speakers are marginal, and there appears to be a water leak in the kitchen which drips through the broken garage light fixture onto one of the cars parked on the right side of the garage. Looks like it has been there a while. The broken beach chairs should be tossed out. Otherwise, a great stay.
Manager response:
Hi, Brittany! The owner is in the home making repairs, and there are future plans to update the flooring. Thank you!
Leila G. Aug 2019
The location of this spacious place was great! We enjoyed our stay. The balcony even had a view of the ocean. Downsides include: the carpets need to be cleaned and the tv remote was missing,
Manager response:
Leila, we are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your comments about the carpet and remote along to our local manager. We look forward to hosting you again!
Tiffany P. Jul 2019
This gem was super convenient - about a block from the beach, a quick walk to all of the stores and restaurants downtown, and a garage to store all of the sandy flip flops and beach toys. Although a bit dated, it was very clean, comfortable, and well stocked with all items we needed for the week.
Kathy E. Jul 2019
Really liked that the condo was so close to town. We walked in all the time. Only got in the car to drive to Morro Bay. Nice layout and ammenities. Very clean.
lori d. Jun 2019
Stocked, clean, spacious and comfy. Walk to town or the beach in minutes. This is the second time we have stayed here.
Jeremy S. Apr 2019
Clean house close to beach
olivia a. Feb 2019
Apartment was nice and very spacious
Jami F. Jan 2019
Great location less than a block from the beach! Everything was very clean and comfortable . Would stay again !
Megan N. Nov 2018
We loved the location and the layout. However very dated and washing machine and dishwasher worked poorly. There were also a few broken light fixtures the landlord didn’t respond on during our stay.
Manager response:
We appreciate this guest's feedback. Our local operations manager is talking with the owner about replacing the washer. The dryer was just replaced with a brand new unit. They are also looking into the light fixture this guest mentioned, but we have no record of them contacting us about this during their stay. We have a 24/7 Customer Experience line, 503-345-9399, that we encourage guests to call for any issues they need to report.
Lisa S. Nov 2018
Had a great weekend in Cayucos! The condo is in a perfect location. Steps to the beach, restaurants, and shops. Very reasonable price. It’s not fancy but it’s comfortable and had room for 4 adults and 4 kids.
Elaine D. Sep 2018
We just had the best family reunion / long weekend. Perfect for 6 with room for 8 or 9. 3 Bedrooms. King bed in the master, which is upstairs. Downstairs has 2 bedrooms, 1 with a queen and 1 with 2 twins, a bathroom and laundry. Upstairs master closet has 2 roll away beds and a comfy couch in the living room. Balcony with table, chairs and charcoal bbq. THREE parking spaces, 2 in the garage, 1 in the carport and plenty of street parking. Everyone could come and go as they pleased and we never felt cramped. The kitchen has everything that you have at home. You can grill dogs and burgers or make steak and lobster. We enjoyed a beach day and borrowed the chairs that were available in the garage. You could only get closer to the beach if you were on it. Walk out the front door, along the back yard path, down the street and you are there. It is close enough to go back and forth for supplies or to use the restroom. Huge bonus for parents with kids. The price is perfect for this condo. You can't get a better deal in Cayucos.
Greg P. Jul 2018
Like everyone else said...excellent location but the property needs some love.
Charles S. Jul 2018
Excellent location and very well laid out. We have rented it for 3 years in a row and am always disappointed in the condition of the carpet. The same stains are there from 3 years before. It is light brown and show everying. Garage is never cleaned or swept. Many little things go unattended to like the bathroom night light bulb has been out for at lease 2 years, bedding blankets stained and appear uncleaned.
Manager response:
We always love to hear from repeat guests about their experiences. The bedding will be replaced, and the carpet will professionally cleaned until we can get it replaced. The night lights in the hallway have all been replaced. We apologize for the inconvenience and encourage our guests to reach out during their reservation so we can assist them right away. Thank you!
Donna B. Jun 2018
The location is great! There were multiple things not working when we arrived. The garage door opener, tv in the bedroom, DVD player in the living room. It was comfortable but dated! Also not elderly friendly! We made it work! Beds were a little hard! Could us some toppers! Over all a good trip!
Michael P. Jun 2018
Everything was fine except most of the electronic did not work or worked poorly (bedroom TV and living room DVD player). We did enjoy the amount of room and it's location is great.
Manager response:
We have fixed the TV and DVD player for guest satisfaction.
Brendon L. May 2018
Spacious home close to ocean and shopping. house is stocked with everything you could possibly want and plenty of room for 6 of us to spread out and be comfortable in our own areas as well as large dining and living areas for everyone to be together
Katharine G. Mar 2018
Location could not have been better. Beach, shops, supermarket....all within walking distance. In fact we were there for a wedding at Cass House and we could have walked to it were it not for the iffy weather. We hit a lot of rain while we were there but I know that's unusual. Condo was clean and comfortable and well supplied with books, dvd's, games etc. Great house, great location, great town. Loved it.
Tamara P. Mar 2018
Great Location, home is out dated and beds are old. Vacasa lady was outstanding to work with.
Ian B. Mar 2018
Close to the water and right in downtown Cayucos. Everything we wanted to go to was within a couple blocks. House was great, we enjoyed it.

Brian C. Nov 2017
Great place

We stay here every year for the Cayucos car show it is close to the car show and very comfortable. Convenient for the closeness and you can walk to any restaurant or the pier we loved our stay this year and every year.
