Recent Morro Bay vacation rental reviews

Well equipped kitchen, nice view of the rock. Good parking, nice quiet neighborhood. Great linens. Down where the BBQ area is could be improved, brick by BBQ but surrounded by dirt.

Where are our Morro Bay vacation rentals?

You'll find this friendly small town sitting right on the Pacific Coast, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. As a part of San Luis Obispo County, our Morro Bay beach houses are also close to a handful of quaint hamlets. You can easily reach the town via scenic California Highway 1 along the coast, and you'll immediately notice it by the distinct volcanic landmass Morro Rock, from which the town gets its name.

Things to do near your Morro Bay beach house rental

At just over 10 square miles, there is a wide variety of both urban and outdoor activities in your vacation rental's area. On or around the Embarcadero on the east side of the bay, you'll find your choice of antique stores, cafes, and boutiques. Families and those looking for a unique stop might enjoy the Morro Bay Skateboard Museum. There are many fine dining options for a nice evening out, such as Windows on the Water and the Galley Seafood Grill and Bar. After dinner, why not see what's playing at the mid-century style Bay Theater? 

See what you can catch with a fishing trip through Virg's Landing. If you prefer to observe wildlife, take a charter expedition with Sub Sea Tours where you might spot humpbacks, gray whales, and dolphins. For a more personal exploration of the bay, rent kayaks or simply take a nature stroll on the beach. North Point Beach is dog-friendly, so if you brought your pup along to your Morro Bay vacation rental, you're in luck.

As one of the Nine Sisters, a series of volcanic lava necks formed thousands of years ago, Morro Rock stands in the causeway between the ocean and the harbor. Perhaps you'll see its resident gulls, cormorants, and the endangered peregrine falcons. In the tide pools below, look for starfish, hermit crabs, and coral. If you're lucky, you may spot a wild sea otter lounging on a raft of kelp! You could also bring a kite or try out windsurfing at just north of the bay.

If you come during early October, the Morro Bay Harbor Festival highlights the best of the area's food, art, and music. In December, be ready to be dazzled by the town's Lighted Boat Parade.

Day trips from your Morro Bay beach house

Inland, less than an hour's drive, are tons of attractions for everyone. For even more outdoor reveling, Los Osos Oaks State Natural Reserve has trees hundreds of years old set among the ancient dunes. Bring your camera around sunset to capture amazing shots. Hikers of all levels could take the trail on Black Hill, another of the Nine Sisters. For sky-high views of the sea, go to Harmony Headlands.

If you like a little car-cruising, there are many spots to stop inland. In nearby Santa Margarita you can conquer zip-lining and horseback riding; history buffs will enjoy the 18th century mission and museums in San Miguel. While each of these places have wineries worth visiting, the best central California vineyards are found in Paso Robles. Let someone else do the driving by booking a guided tour of the best wineries!

Always dreamed of visiting the California coast? Morro Bay is a quiet little gem to discover the Golden State's sometimes-overlooked areas, and our Morro Bay vacation rentals make a fantastic home base for your next getaway.
