253 Park Ave...thoughts/info on location

Found this condo for $175 per nite. 2 bedroom, 2 bath for 2 couples w/2 children each (all kids under 3 yrs old). Only bad thing is one room has 2 twin beds while the other has a queen. But if location is good, we'll work out the sleeping arrangements. :) Any thoughts/info?

That condo is a block up from the beach and a short walk to downtown & the pier. Park Ave may have some traffic during the day, but shouldn't be too bad at night. If you Google map the address, you can see some of the surrounding homes, some of which are older.

Close to the beach & town @ $175.00 a night is a pretty good deal. Check to make sure it isn't a "dog friendly" rental as some of those can be pretty bad inside. A friend of mine rented a home in that area a few years ago and she wouldn't invite any friends over because it smelled so bad.

Thanks for the info. After comparing the rates for all the hotels/resorts in the area, this does appear to b a great deal...especially since we'll b sharing the cost w/another family. We went ahead & booked, so hopefully we won't b disappointed!

Hi mommiof 2

As as I said, it's a block up from the beach and near downtown Pismo, so a good location for a visit to the beach. You're close enough to walk to the sights, but far enough away to not be disturbed by some of the downtown hub-bub.

Let us know how it worked out for you when you get back from your visit. It helps us help others who are looking for vacation rentals in the area.

Hi! Just wanted to give a quick update...we stayed at the park ave house (found it on beachbumrentals) & it was great! The house was clean & organized. It had everything we needed (soap, towels, washer/dryer, dishes, 2 car garage, & more). The location was great too...walking distance from everything! The house was a little small, but still worked out great for all 9 of us! :)

Thanks for the update, mommiof2. Glad that place worked out for your visit. It's nice being able to just leave the car parked and walk everywhere, isn't it?
