One of the owners was on site during our visit to assure that the high quality of service and food was maintained. We were upgraded to the premier suite due to a mix up in our reservations. Very nice way to make up for the mix up. Breakfast were gourmet quality and the chef is even writing a cook book.... More

Huge room well decorated, great view of sunset. All staff lovely. Early morning continental breakfast available or cooked from 9-11am. Jacuzzi bath very welcome after long drive. Shame we could not stay longer

You should know that the view rooms are not 'On the beach'. They are across the road from the beach overlooking the busy public restroom and noisy playground. Cayucos town is a little sketchy and you can watch a constant parade of homeless and otherwise strange characters use the large restroom as you drink wine from your balcony. That little... More

My wife and I stayed Mar 16 & 17 to celebrate her birthday and have done so this time of year for three or four years now. On The Beach is one of our favorite places in Cayucos, and Cayucos is the perfect small beach town to get some relaxation! We had room 2, a large King room with a... More

We booked a Saturday night stay at this B&B. Lodging in Cayucos was full, everything else was booked solid for the Sea Glass Festival that weekend. The town was crowded, lots of people everywhere. Make sure you make dinner reservations ahead of time at any of the restaurants. We got Room 6 which is downstairs and underneath the spa pump... More

We used a Groupon voucher-what a great value! The rooms are very large and you can't beat the location. You can park outside or down below in their parking garage. They have evening appetizers with beer, wine, or a soft drink. Then dessert later on. The breakfast each day was fantastic and they will give you the recipes! More importantly... More

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
