House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
California Vacation Rentals is a family owned and operated vacation rental company that manages properties in Pismo Beach, Lake Tahoe and San Francisco. We take great pride in all of our homes.

Why CaliforniaVacationRentals chose Downtown
Location Location Location If you are a larger group, consider renting the 4 bedroom next door. This home is right by the boardwalk, pier and beach.
What makes this House unique
The house is only a block from the pier and downtown. We never use our car when we are in town. Pismo Beach is a great walking beach.

Construction trumps location
I really wanted to give this place 5 star rating but I just can’t. Location can’t be beat. I searched and to have a HOUSE this close to everything w/o being on a main road and with a view and great patio area to enjoy the view was great for relaxing. BUT there was construction going on directly across the street our entire stay. It’s not a vacation if we’re still waking up at 6am every morning. Plus the construction workers used the retaining wall on the patio area as their own picnic area. If there weren’t 3-4 guys having their lunch or just hanging there, then they left their soda cans, chip wrappers, containers etc. We couldn’t even use the patio area. We did barbecue one day but ate inside because I didn’t want to share my space with strange men. My kids wanted to sit out front and hang out but I didn’t allow it because of the workers hanging around and I have a preteen daughter. From the living room window they could see us so you’d think they’d not hang out there. They didn’t care that we were there. They behaved as though that was their space. It was just sooo uncomfortable. Also the view from inside is not like the photos anymore. Now you have a partial view (when there aren’t large construction trucks blocking it) the other part of the view is the row of port of potty’s. Other than the proximity to downtown and the beach (which gets an A+) and the comfort of the inside of the house this was NOT a vacation. It was stressful. This was way too much to pay for what we got. Maybe at a different time but not w/the construction. Also the house was a little stuffy smelling at first. We opened the windows but then we couldn’t hear the television from the construction noise. Very disappointed.
I am very sorry about your experience at our home during your stay in June. I definitely don't like hearing that Marriott workman were sitting on our retaining wall, leaving garbage and working outside of legal hours. It is a great spot, but only for our guests to use. This project was to be competed in April, but for whatever reason it wasn't. Marriott website now says August '19. https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/sbpak-vespera-on-ocean-autograph-collection/
The inside of the house was completely painted a week prior to your stay. I wonder if that is the stuffy smell.
This is our 2nd stay at this house in Pismo Beach because everything is 100% as described on the website! Everyone has their own space and the proximity to downtown and the beach could not be better. The kitchen is well-stocked w/anything you could possibly need (bring your own food, of course), the bath towels are huge and the beds are soooo comfortable!
Great location- ocean view from the couch!
Love this house and property. This and the house in the back have always been favorites. Always clean with comfy beds and ample supplies. It was disappointing to have the construction going on directly across the street on all days (Thursday through Sunday), in fact it’s sad to see SO many big hotels going in. It’s going to change the whole Pismo vibe. After 12 years, we may need to find a new place to have our annual Mother’s Day Trip.
Very beautiful home,
Love this house!!
We had a great time. Location location location, best spot in all of Pismo!
Great Stay! Perfect CLEAN house by the pier!
We loved our vacation in this home. The highlight was BBQing on the front patio. Our group rented both homes, but enjoyed the patio of this house house the most. Our group appreciated never using the public toilets in town:) It was so easy to walk back to the house. The beds were comfortable and the sheets and duvets were white, so felt and looked extra clean. It is the one thing I don't love about vacation rentals, wondering if the bedspreads have been laundered. Pismo Beach was super packed since it was Spring Break. We loved having parking AND never having to use our car in the stopped traffic throughout town. Thanks for sharing this great home with us!
