For about 20 years my folks rented a house just above the Giant supermarket for 2 weeks. Then I got married and the in-laws lived about 2 blocks from there. No more renting, they had a mother-in-law unit for guest 🙂 We preferred Cayucos beach, it had the swing sets and other toys too, plus the rental place right off the pier for boogie boards and stuuf. later it was a great place to get air for our SCUBA tanks.
My ex’s family owned a house in Cambria..they actually gave me a key to the place AFTER we were divorced…guess they knew he was a schmuck too…LOL.
