On a lovely, romantic getaway, we were pleasantly surprised by our stay in "fish fantasy". It was clean, cozy, very romantic and perfect for our plans to just relax by the ocean in a quaint location. Thank you, Rick and Rebecca for such a wonderful experience. Actually, it was so enjoyable that we came back for a second night on...

The place has quaint small rooms that give it a boost over other places in Cayucos - there is no sea view but the beach is an easy walk - The rooms get noise from the street but later it gets more quiet as there is not much to do in Cayucos after sundown.

We're so glad to hear our little place made it to the top of your Cayucos list! You must have missed our garden patio with an ocean view... I'm sure it would have loved it!

I usually gag at cute or charming but not this time. This quaint little motel is a throwback to earlier decades--in a positive way. Charming and immaculately clean. Wonderful location in this charming town. You can hear the ocean waves from the room. Good wifi,

We stayed in the "West Wind" room and we loved it. Clean and quiet, with plenty of room for 2 people. We enjoyed the garden area, we ate our dinner there each night. Our room had a little kitchen and it was filled with everything that you would need. The shower was a bit small, but it was ok.

Travelling from Australia I booked this place for 2 adults and 3 kids (12, 10 and 7) for USD 105 (plus tax). It was fantastic value, was clean and the themed rooms (ours was African) is a nice quirky touch. I would personally like it if they charged more and included breakfast, makes a travelling holiday easier if breakfast included...

Oh, breakfast does sound lovely! It's just Rick and me here at the motel, but Martine's across the street has a wonderful breakfast menu! We are so very happy you enjoyed your stay and, were able to keep within a reasonable budget. So important while traveling!

We arrived in Cayucos without any reservation and stopped at the seaside motel by chance. We were so lucky! This place is nice and peaceful, the beds are very comfortable, the rooms clean and the decoration really fun. A stone throw from the sea and with a garden to rest. (The landlady is a gifted gardener). The owners were adorable...
