Very quiet and peaceful! ★★★★★

The property has been renovated recently by the owners and its beautiful! All the comfort is available inside the house. Lots of places to sit and enjoy with family and friends. The property owners/caretakers are really nice and communicative. There are a lot of rules for do's and don'ts but they are required so that the property is good for all. The porch is really nice and big. It has ocean view and also San dunes view. Very quiet and peaceful. The rooms are adequate with comfortable mattresses and TV in all the rooms. The 2 bathrooms are spacious and the showers are nice. Would visit again for sure.

Has a pool table that became the main form of entertainment! ★★★★

Overall great place! close to the beach and has a pool table that became the main form of entertainment for my friends and I. I would reach out beforehand for the BBQ though as the one that is mentioned in the listing is no longer there.

Perfect stylish beach house getaway! ★★★★★

This was a perfect stylish beach house getaway for me and two of my closest friends. We left our kids and partners at home and enjoyed cooking, lounging, and strolling into the dunes to watch the sunset. The beach itself (and I would say the house as well) are not suitable for kids or family beach play in my opinion. The beach is a through-way for large trucks towing recreation vehicles back and forth all day and night. People seemed to hang out only within a few feet of their large vehicles. But, there is a protected estuary abutting back of the house with dunes that fill with delightful song of Pacific tree frogs in the evenings and that is off-limits for the trucks. The view of the ocean from the house over the estuary cannot be beat and we did not mind staying in for most of the weekend! The kitchen is very well stocked for cooking and the downstairs shower is perfect. King beds in each room were comfy, too!

Sipping coffee while watching the hot air balloons was a treat! ★★★★★

Came for a long weekend from the bay area for a wine maker diner. The property was amazing! Very clean, all the amenities and kitchen supplies we needed. Beautiful valley views., especially in the morning. Sipping coffee while watching the hot air baloons was a treat. We will come back here again. Thank you for sharing your lovely, serene spot.

I would 100% stay here again! ★★★★★

Right from the start Kathy was a pleasure to work with. She answered all of my questions and worked with me to make our stay possible. The house itself was completely redone, quite beautiful and clearly thought out. We had everything we needed from kitchen supplies, to towels, to bedding, etc. not to mention you can literally walk to the beach from the pool room! We had such an incredible time playing frisbee, running across the sand dunes and enjoying all the place had to offer. I would also highly recommend trying the sand dune ATV rides, which are located about 5 minutes from the house as it was truly an unforgettable experience. Kathy was an incredible host when it came to responsiveness and she clearly demonstrated a care for our well being. Before our stay they were experiencing difficulties with their heating system, Kathy made sure to inform me of this prior to arrival as well as purchased individual heaters for each room and for around the house to ensure we stayed warm and comfortable throughout our stay. They truly thought of everything and when we accidentally blew a fuse Elvia was there with an electrician to solve the problem within an hour, I was blown away! I would 100% stay here again and highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a nice beach getaway! Thank you again Kathy and Elvia! Best, Riley

Walking distance to the beach! ★★★★★

Walking distance to the beach (keep in mind this is a drivable beach). Quiet area, relaxing atmosphere. We ran into some challenges with the house, as we booked the day before (kind of last minute), the house wasn’t cleaned when we arrived. Called Kathy and the cleaners were there in 15 minutes. The thermostat had issues while we were there which Kathy said they were working to resolve. In terms of location, this is a great place to be (3 minute walk to the beach?!) and within a short driving distance to Pismo and Avila Beach.

The space to spread out and the quiet street! ★★★★★

This was a wonderful stay at this perfectly decorated beach house. We enjoyed the deck, the space to spread out and the quiet street. The only thing we did not realize was how busy the beach was - so many cars coming and going. We still very much enjoyed the beach but that was the only thing that I would advise for smaller children it could be stressful with so many cars, But overall it was wonderful.

highly recommend this home! ★★★★★

What a wonderful beach vacation spot - beautiful views!! Super cute beach decor with updated and modern furnishings. We had an amazing, relaxing vacation & highly recommend this home. A slight hiccup with the house not being ready/clean for check in at 4, a bit of a bummer since we had done a lot of driving that day & we were ready to get settled in….aside from that we loved our time here!

A great place to gather and catch up! ★★★★★

We needed a location where mom and dad could feel comfortable. The outstanding location was just a huge plus! Everything was well organized and ready for our arrival. Admittedly, the first floor deck was the main attraction. A great place to gather and catch up after several months of being away from each other. Although beach traffic was steady throughout the day, there was never a time where it became an annoyance. We even took the opportunity to join in the fun on our bikes! We'll definitely be back.

Gorgeous ocean views ★★★★★

The strand way rental is by far the most relaxing place I have EVER stayed. With the gorgeous ocean views, so close you can hear the soft ocean waves luring you to sleep, it is the ultimate vacation for family & friends. The upper deck is great for suntanning (and absorbing your much needed vitamin D), while the lower deck offers shade and a cool breeze on warmer days. Its amusing to watch others play on the beach...surfing, flying kites, making sandcastles, and you might even see a rescue of a vehicle (or 2) that got stuck crossing the river while heading to the oceanfront campgrounds...all while you stay safe (and sand free) on the private deck. The basement pool table is there for the competitive sorts (& busy bodied kids), and wall to ceiling windows on the 3rd level allow great lighting for those who enjoy spending their time reading or relaxing with a jigsaw puzzle. The house is only minutes away from touristy areas such as downtown Pismo, San Luis Obispo, and Avila Beach. Several stores, restaurants, & ATV rental places are within walking distance. All in all, there is no better hidden gem than this!

We Really Enjoyed This! ★★★★★

The View Is So Worth It! ★★★★★

This is great property because you get a perfectly set up beach house, with room and hang out space. The view from the deck and main room is so worth it. It is a short walk to the beach through dunes and the beach is quiet. Ideal right now. The house has nice "beachy" specs and nice amenities for hanging for days. There was limited cleaning products, but that can be expected and fine if you bring some of your own. Our family had a great time.

Location, Location, Location! ★★★

"The beach front property and small town feel make this a great location for a family wanting to be at the beach but stay isolated. Wave and dune views plus walking right out to the beach is a plus. The 3 stars are for the home itself. Bring your own supplies as everything ran out including toilet paper and bath towels for our week stay as a party of 6. The patios could use a littleTLC. For the price I would have expected a little cleaner high-end place. The service is what was expected but the details need attention.”

Beautiful Home! ★★★★

Great location, beautiful home. Close to stores. Very quiet neighborhood. They are not joking when they say quiet time at 10pm. From our experience quiet time probably began around 7pm. Really wish there was a firepit. The game room downstairs was perfect especially during quiet hours, we were able to still have some music without disturbing the neighbors.

Well Stocked! ★★★★

Great location! Steps to Oceano Beach and within 10 minutes to Pismo. Beach. The home was well stocked with kitchen cookware, utensils and glasses/mugs. Comfortable accommodations with three king beds, three couches and outdoor seating. Great place to hang out and chill after a beach day. Clean property. Hospitable and responsive owner.

Peaceful Getaway! ★★★★★

We had the best stay in Oceano this past weekend, even though we were unlucky with the weather while we were there. Grey skies and strong winds didn’t ruin our vacation. The house is spacious and lovely with stunning views of the dunes and ocean right out the living room wall of windows. We cooked a delicious fresh seafood Pasta from Giovanni’s market (Morro bay) in the large well-equipped kitchen and enjoyed several rounds of pool in the basement after dark. Would highly recommend this place as a peaceful getaway.

Amazing Views! ★★★★★

Beautiful beach home right on the dunes, amazing views from inside the house. Kathleen was a great host. Not Kathleen's fault, but the weather was very, very, very windy the whole time, so we had to drive to beaches further south because it was too windy and the waves were too big for our toddler.


May 2020

Gorgeous Views of the Ocean & Dunes! ★★★★★

We absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful beach house! Everything was great - the house amenities (we had everything we needed in the kitchen and bathrooms), the rooms were very comfortable (two rooms have access to the large balcony), the main patio with gorgeous views of the ocean and dunes, the barbecue in the lower patio. The house was so open and welcoming the light through the huge windows. Kathleen was so friendly, welcoming and accommodating! Thank you for fast responses and your hospitality! We look forward to staying at this perfect paradise again!

Lots of Room! ★★★★★

Great location in an amazing place. Lots of room and easy access to beach and town. Down sides are : bed in one bedroom Is really warn out , BBQ doesn't get up to temp , pool sticks are terrible , and cable in one room didn't work. Overall the pots and pans could use some matching sets. Hard to find what you need sometimes.

Easy Access to the Dunes! ★★★★★

Best location in Oceano... ★★★★
Myself, my husband and two grown up daughters with their partners spent five nights for Christmas 2018 at this rental in Oceano. It is located down a small alley at the southern edge of the town, not facing the busy beach, but in the best location possible, perpendicular to the beach, on the edge of the Oceano Dunes Nature Preserve. Oceano is well known for its RV campers and ATV Off Roading and the beach road can be busy and noisy, but our rental was peaceful with only the sound of wild birds and ocean waves. The weather over the Christmas holiday couldn't have been more perfect. Clear blue skies, bright sparkling water, glorious sunsets. We sat out on the deck covered in sunscreen, enjoying cocktails and champagne. With the sun blazing directly into the living room it can sometimes get too hot. Occasionally we would go for a walk on the dunes (access is only three houses down), play games, go for night walks along the beach... one of us even braved the freezing water. Other times we played pool in the basement, or just sat enjoying the changing light. The house is on three levels with one bathroom downstairs and one upstairs. Not ideal for six adults but we managed fine. The central heating was extremely efficient when needed. The kitchen has everything required including a large washing machine and dryer. Oceano has easy access to San Luis Obispo and the wineries of Paso Robles. We had an excellent dinner at Embers, a restaurant in nearby Arroyo Grande. But mostly we stayed at the house as it was comfortable and enjoyable. I can recommend it. One thing, as mentioned in a previous review, bring extra towels as the ones provided are few and small. - Barbara S.CA, USA Stayed Dec 2018
Great Beach House for Thanksgiving ★★★★

My husband and I enjoyed a quiet getaway over the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon check-in we found the house to be clean and comfortable, well stocked kitchen, nice size bedrooms and an awesome view of the dunes and beach. The location is quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed early mornings on the deck with our coffee watching the activity on the beach. We enjoyed our Thanksgiving meal at the high top table in the main living area looking at the view.

A few notes. First, a bench on the front patio would be helpful for removing shoes to help keep sand out of the home. Second, we could never figure out the ice maker on the fridge and there wasn't an ice tray to be found anywhere. No biggie, we bought a bag of ice. Third, there are no blinds on the main living area windows and, with the sun shining on them all day, it can get HOT (there is no A/C). We used the fans from the upstairs bedrooms to help cool down the house in the afternoon. Fourth, there was a note to bring in the patio furniture cushions in bad weather but they must have been removed prior to our arrival. I could not locate them in any closet or storage space. Lastly, the screens on the upstairs bedroom sliders have rusted rollers and cannot be opened. Again, no big deal as the view is on the other side of the house.

We would definitely consider this home again for other weekend getaways and family vacations.

Weekend for friend and relaxation ★★★★★

We usually camp but we're unable to find a spot. We decide to rent a house instead of hotel. Great decision we enjoyed this home kitchen was well equipped, pool table was added fun. Would have like a tv in living room area where tv is small. View was good and Enjoyed sun rising bring umbrella if u want to sit on patio in the afternoons too sunny. Oh parking was good too.

Peaceful, wonderful property ★★★★★

We had such a wonderful stay here. We are a family of 6 and we had plenty of room. Every night and every morning was spent on the deck overlooking the ocean. The house was clean and well maintained. The only negative was an old bathroom light and fan timer. Yep, not much of a negative.

This place was very peaceful and the kids could play on the beach while we relaxed. The beds were very comfortable, too. Very close to lots of fun. We went skydiving, horseback riding and rented atvs and dune buggies. We will be back to this home next summer for sure!
