The SpaceBeach Getaway’s upstairs unit has a private deck that overlooks a sprawling lagoon and it's half a block to the beach. Close enough to carry surfboards or go for a brisk walk with the salty mist of the Pacific on your face. Perfect for shell collecting, also near entrance to drive cars on beach, close to Pismo, Butterfly sanctuary, Avila, and SLO, foggy most mornings, and sunny most afternoons. Breath taking sunsets over the Pacific. Deck is fenced, stairs are fenced and gated. New tub, tile, floor, sink, lighting, etc.
Inside has modern open floor plan. Style reflects the California hey-day of Milk Bottles and The Red Car.
Lounge around or drop everything and bolt out onto the beach and over to the dunes for a run. It might be a Saturday when the small airport is busy with biplane rides. You can wave at the planes from the deck, especially the yellow bi-plane that does breathtaking aerial stunts. It's a magical place all year round. Don't think of it as cold in the winter, it's usually sunny and clear. The Pacific Ocean is just west of you; the estuary is full of life, and a resident Osprey fishes here. Resident ducks show up about 11:00, you can feed them. This is a beautiful place and breathtaking location.
This beach is the last beach is Cali that allows cars, campers, and ATVs on it. Bring your rig if you want, or just come as you are. WATCH OUT for cars on the beach!
We are in the flight path for the small planes that are most active on weekends. This beach is safe for walks, but watch for cars. Avila is the preferred beach for letting dogs off leash or delighting children.
The place has an open floor plan, approx. 1000 square foot and it’s a pole house. You walk past a bungalow where our friend Michelle lives; then open a gate, which seems like the end of the property, find the lockbox there and unlock the security door, go upstairs to the deck and enter the pole house from the private entrance on the pond side. You'll have Wi-Fi, a 32” Smart TV, but you can also take a break from electronics too. Aside from Michelle downstairs, there are no immediate neighbors. It's very secluded.
Adventurers can bring sand toys to ride at the beach! Have a fire on the beach, or barbecue on the deck... There's a hook up for adding air to tires downstairs. You'll be close to hiking trails, wine tasting, Avila Golf Resort, Pismo outlets, and most of all, sunsets, and sunrises, surf and sand. If you have a chance to go to Opolo, it's a lovely winery.
Read my reviews!
Please refer to the Guidebook, as I have marked some favorite places. This house is a separate unit from the street facing beach bungalow. It's hard to even see from the street. We love the seclusion. It is well lit for safety, but you do feel very "away from it all". The place feels clean, fresh, eclectic, accommodating and inspiring.
Bring layers, especially a sweatshirt as temperatures can drop quickly, comfortable shoes too. You will hardly want to leave the deck, but you will because there is so much to see! Guest Access•Upstairs deck with estuary view, private entrance

•Driveway Interaction with GuestsThis is a self check in house, but there is a caretaker on the premises. Please review the rules, don't smoke inside or leave kids unattended. Don't bring more people than you have booked.
The key is in a lockbox on the premises and you will have a lot of privacy.
I rarely interact with guests because if you're there, I can't be there. The NeighborhoodIt's a beach neighborhood, some huge houses, some original bungalows, some vacant lots. Pismo is about a mile north, closest restaurant is Old Juana's Cantina. It is a 2 minute walk to the beach if you walk down Juanita and straight over the sand of the empty lot where Juanita meets the Strand. That big sandy area between the houses is where you walk to get back and forth to the beach. You'll want to look back to remember where it was you entered...
Also, we are along an estuary and there is wild life... raccoons, ducks, skunks, heron, lizards, garter snakes... Keep dogs on leash and attend to your kids.
Wind carries sand, which can settle on things overnight, even through an open window.
We are located half way between LA and SF. The pole house is the only one in the area. You do not have to share the space with anyone. It is a self contained complete unit.
Our mom was the prior owner. She was an antique milk bottle collector, A WWII Civil Air Patrol spotter, also into Airstreams. We have left a wall of her favorite California milk bottles. Other guests have left complete sets of sand toys and games. It's a great place and we love it. Getting AroundLocal bus a block away. Close to Grover Beach train station and close to Oceano Airport. You can get a taxi from there if you don't have a car not sure if Uber is in Oceano. There are small stores nearby, ATV rentals, shops, about 1.5 miles from downtown Pismo. Walk out the door, turn left, and you are steps from the ocean. This is an escape. You'll want to return! Other Things to NoteThe beach is just a stroll away. Lots of wild-life nearby. People drive on the beach. Watch out for cars. We walk on the beach, but we do our family events in Avila or North of Pismo where there aren't cars. You can make day trips, then return for dinner and eat on the deck. Bring a cooler and chairs for your day trips. Definitely look up the Butterfly Reserve, Montano de Oro, Sycamore Springs, Avila, Moonstone beach, or ask me about your special interests via email or text. Sometimes the internet works great, sometimes it doesn't. Contact me or Michelle if there are any concerns.
WATER CONSERVATION- we are in a severe drought and have restricted water usage. Please be mindful when doing dishes, showering, etc. Please, please be careful and not wasteful of water.
DOG OWNERS- Place sheet over couch and chair upon arrival. Crate your dog if you leave it indoors. I don't leave my dog alone on deck, or inside. If your dog sleeps with you, add a sheet over the bed. I generally bring a crate and a dog bed.
