Beautiful view from comfortable recliners Very comfy bed
The inside was warm and cozy when we wanted by using the gas fireplace
All the appliances worked fine
I am thankful we brought an air mattress to sleep on Access to the beach
The house had great views of the ocean and beach
Will return in the fall Cayucos is one laid back friendly town
but was perfect for the two of us and our dogs Great beach access however
We had brought prepared dinners and breakfast wine and coffee
The house even overhangs the sand
We opened all the windows and doors to let in as much breeze as possible which also let in the flys and bugs and rattled the blinds at night which made it hard to sleep
No problem there Shops and restaurants in Cayucos are walking distance if you choose to do so
Restaurants are somewhat limited I would recommend grocery shopping at the Albertson's in Morro Bay just a ten-minute drive away Great eateries in Morro Bay as well
Relaxing location directly on the beach
The fold out sofa had a poor mattress
There were dolphins almost ALL DAY
