WHY A VACATION BEACH HOUSE?

Body boarding at Pismo BeachOur vacation beach houses are a perfect place to get together, celebrate and relax.  They are perfect for family get-togethers, weddings, anniversaries, or birthday celebrations. The Wall Street Journal published an article about the benefits of bringing a large, extended family together at a vacation rental.  Family members get to connect and form lifetime memories.  See: http://www.wsj.com/articles/vacations-that-aim-to-turn-cousins-into-friends-1432060383
We also handle church or corporate retreats and sports teams.   Large groups can utilize  multiple houses located within easy walking distance of each other.  We have had groups of less than 6 to over 60 stay at our vacation beach houses.

We take care of the cleaning, so you do not have to. All of our beautiful, well maintained, vacation homes are located less than a block from the beach.  For groups, a vacation beach house can be much more economical, is lot more fun, and is far less cramped than renting a bunch of motel rooms. You get to use a complete, fully equipped home, giving you plenty of room to celebrate together, or be apart as needed.  Our houses come fully furnished, including a well stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, outdoor gas grill, clean sheets and towels, televisions in every bedroom and Wi-Fi.  In addition each house has its own special amenities such as a roof deck, gas fireplace, outdoor fire pit, wide screen televisions, karaoke, foosball, ping-pong, kid’s area or more.  Check the detailed descriptions to see the amenities for each of the beach houses.  All of our vacation homes are licensed, professionally cleaned, maintained and managed for your comfort and convenience. We want you to have a fun, relaxing vacation at the beach.  Let us know if you need something extra to make your event special.  We can help arrange special services such as a horse carriage, limousine, catered meals, flowers, etc.



THE NEIGHBORHOOD


A WONDERFUL, LITTLE KNOWN, PISMO BEACH AREA NEIGHBORHOOD

The wide, sandy beach is just a few steps away

For over one hundred years the Strand Neighborhood of Oceano Beach has been a favorite vacation destination for those in the know.  Located about two miles south of downtown Pismo Beach, Oceano Beach is tucked between Highway One and the beautiful blue Pacific, next to Pismo State Beach and the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreational Area.   It is about a mile south of the Grover Beach Amtrak station and is within walking distance of the Oceano County Airport.

The Strand is small, funky neighborhood, one block wide and eight blocks long, that includes everything from tiny beach bungalows to palatial mansions.  All the houses are located within a block of the beach.  A small commercial district featuring local shops and ATV rentals is located on Pier Avenue.

The flat, wide, sandy beach is the only beach in California that you may drive onto, ride horses, rent dune buggies, four wheelers, kayak, build a beach bonfire, fish, surf, or swim.   A playground, restaurants, nature center,hiking  trails, ATV rentals, lagoon and lagoon fishing are all within easy walking distance. Nearby is the famed Monarch Butterfly Grove, downtown Pismo Beach and the Pismo Pier, award winning wineries, the Village of Arroyo Grande, golfing, biplane rides, sky-diving, the world famous Great American Melodrama and Vaudeville, antique stores, Pismo Beach Premium Outlets and much, much more.  The magnificent Hearst Castle and Solvang Danish Village are each about an hour away.

THE WEATHER – AND WHEN TO VISIT

The weather in the Pismo Beach area tends to be the opposite of that of the Central Valley.  In winter, when the Valley is beset with the tule fog, it is usually clear and warm in Pismo Beach.  In summer, when the Valley becomes unbearably hot, the cool ocean fog tends to settle in during the morning and evening hours, creating a pleasant, cool (some even say chilly) environment. There are many local micro-climates, so if it is cool in one area, it may be warm just a few miles away.  If you visit in summer, remember to bring a sweater. 

The locals say the nicest time to visit is December through March.   The weather tends to be clear, sunny and warm.  There are few tourists, so everything is less crowded and rates are often lower.
