Our time at On the Beach was truly a delight. The staff and other guests were warm and friendly. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean made for a relaxing nights sleep in the soft sheets. The location is yards from the beach and the local tide pools are filled with fun things to explore- great for families or... More

We meet up with 6 of our friends from LA as Cayucos is about half way. One of the couples had booked it used a Groupon! Although we were a bit worried about a Bed and Breakfast, ' On the Beach' was absolutely fabulous! The breakfast was great, the service was outstanding! We met the owners when we were there... More

We tried On the Beach with a Groupon. I was skeptical, as it was our first time using Groupon. When we checked in, Mika saw that we had booked with Groupon and offered us a complimentary bottle of red or white wine from a local winery, courtesy of Groupon. OK, I guess this is going to be okay - yeah!... More

Loved our beach view room. Slept with the door open a bit to hear the surf. Our king size bed was so comfortable with the softest linens surrounding us. The amazing breakfasts with all the homemade treats were such a great way to start each day. We also enjoyed the evening wine tasting with appetizers. I've stayed here with my... More

Perfect beach vibe; stayed only 2 nights and slept dreaming of dancing whales while listening to the crashing waves of melodyland! Wine reception nightly at 5:00 p.m. tasting local wines with in house appetizers. Hello!!! Dessert at 7:30 p.m. Hot breakfast at 9:00 a.m. (coffee at 5:00 a.m.) Exceptional staff, EZ check-in/out, EZ parking. Totally fun beach vibe with pier,... More

Get a room overlooking the ocean. The rooms are well appointed and cozy. Breakfast was tasty, hot, and fresh with a lot of options. Fireplace, large comfy bed, scenic view, and a hot tub; you can't ask for anything more.

We spent two nights here with a Groupon--fabulous location right on the beach in the little town of Cayucos--spacious room, fireplace, comfortable beds and a little patio to watch the sunset. The breakfasts that Maureen cooked every morning were amazing--so great to awaken every morning to the lovely aromas wafting from the breakfast room--quiches, homemade muffins, blueberry coffee cake to...

My husband and I spent 2 nights here as part of our honeymoon, and we are both so glad we did! We got a ridiculous discounted price on Groupon, but even the full price would have been worth it. We stayed in room 207... VERY spacious, with fireplace, jetted tub, private balcony, min-fridge, etc. Only downside is this room has... More

The Inn is simple looking without the charm of what we expected in a B&B but the room was very nice, comfortable, quiet, and well appointed. We had a nice view of the ocean and pier. The staff was nice, helpful, and friendly and we were treated to a very nice selection of snacks and wine in the late afternoon.... More

My husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary at this amazing B&B "on the beach" this past weekend. From the moment we checked in Katie took care of us. Wonderful ambiance and great food. We cannot wait to return to this great spot in a great little beach town.
