My husband and I recently stayed at On the Beach to celebrate my sister's wedding in Cayucos. We only stayed for 2 nights, but we enjoyed it very much. Our room had all of the amenities you would expect from a comfortable, beautiful place on the beach. We stayed in room 2 downstairs. We could park our vehicle right outside... More

Stayed for three days over a weekend in May. Staff very friendly and outgoing. Room was very nice, only two items needed attention in room 202. The grout around the Jacuzzi tub needed redoing, and the patch painted area below the bathroom sink area needed to be painted. The food was wonderful at breakfast all three days, and their afternoon... More

This is an absolutely fantastic place to stay! We hired a car and drove down the coast and stopped here for a night on our way to Los Angeles. It was perfect! We got there at 5pm where the host was putting out complimentary canapes and drinks, and the same again happened at 8pm! The room was beautifully decorated, with... More

We hated to leave this place! Our room was beautiful and quite spacious with large private balcony overlooking ocean, fireplace and spa tub. Staff was friendly, personable and helpful. Wonderful smells from the kitchen drifted throughout the property all day! Breakfast included a different and unique hot meal each morning along with the usual yogurt, fruit, and homemade muffins or... More

My wife and I just celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary by spending 4 nights in Room 204. We had a terrific time due to "On the Beach". The always smiling staff did a terrific job at making us feel welcome. The "full" breakfasts, snacks, and happy hours were always top notch with excellent fresh cooked goodies. The cleaning staff was... More

Extremely nice room with a fire place and a jacuzzi tub. Food and service was terrific. I would go back in a minute. We enjoyed walking on the beach in the evening and again the morning. The town is nice with multiple antique shops and restaurants all within very close walking distance of the B&B.

We stayed in late March 2014 and it was wonderful. The wheelchair accessible room has a beach view, low bed for ease in getting in and out, a jacuzzi bathtub and a delicious breakfast, happy hour and dessert. We will definitely be going back to this gem and next time, take some friends with us. Cayucos is a charming town,... More

I received a gift certificate from friends for a night's stay at this lovely B&B, so my husband and I booked a Sunday evening during late March. We're not "beach people" so much, mostly because of the cool weather and brusque winds. But On the Beach was such a nice play to stay in Cayucos. At check-in, we could smell... More
