We enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of this bed and breakfast. The rooms are furnished with antique bed frames and armoires and the ocean is right outside your door. The food prepared was gourmet quality - early breakfast, formal breakfast, hourderves with local wine and beer, and dessert. Our only complaint is the 90's jetted tub/shower combo in every room.

I've stayed at this lovely BB before and always enjoy it's loveliness. The food is spectacular. The staff warm and welcoming. HOWEVER, upon returning home I discovered I had left my iPhone plug and long cord plugged into the wall in our room. I distinctly remember it being left. I called immediately (late in the afternoon) and was told it...

We loved everything about this place. The chefs are amazing. Don't miss any breakfast or happy hour. The bedding was fantastic. We took probably six baths in three days in the huge tub. It stormed our first night and washed up sea glass, which we became obsessed with.

It was my birthday weekend, so we splurged a little. WOW, was it worth it! Background for me; we have family in Cayucos, so we have stayed at nearly every hotel in town (seriously, there are probably 11 hotels and I've stayed at 9 of them.) We've stayed at the budget hotels and a couple of the high dollar hotels,...

Quiet, sleepy, charming town... and this is certainly the best of the options. Very cute place and nice size rooms. Beds were amazing, the sheets were unbelievably soft. And breakfast was delicious. So why the 3 stars?? 2 reasons: 1. We paid full price, so at $300ish a person it's a fortune for where you're staying. In contrast we're staying...

My husband chose On the Beach for his birthday (our third visit). We like room 202 on the second floor. You can sit on the balcony in your plush robe and watch the beach goers below. There is also a hot tub down the hall if you like that sort of thing. We stopped in around 1:30 to see if...

Cayucos was a good stopping place after a days drive and "On the Beach Bed and Breakfast" ended up being the perfect choice.
