We were very comfortable for 3 nights here. The unit is self contained with a well equipped kitchenette and small bathroom. Nice sofas, telly and electric fire as it was beginning to get cold at night. It all felt new and clean. Sylviana was very helpful with tips on where to fill and ensuring we were comfortable.

This was an old motel that was converted into 2 "suites". We stayed in the front suite. There is a small kitchen, very small bathroom, living room with a queen and a pull out sofa. The other side has a queen and bathroom. Silvana is very sweet and made us feel at home, but once we checked in we never... More

Thanks for the feedback. Here are a few points I'd like to clarify. Our suites are rented as vacation rentals, as outlined on vrbo.com. All phone customers are advised to look up our property on that site so that they can get a better picture of where they'll be staying & what is provided. As a vacation rental, we are... More

This is a very enjoyable place to stay – a low-key, clean and cozy suite with a small kitchen, deck and an adjoining bedroom. Good accommodations for friends and family that travel together. A short walk gets you to the center of town as well as the beach. Plus, convenient to central coast activities.

My wife and I, along with my brother and sister-in-law, spent three nights at the Sea Gull. We had a lovely two-bedroom suite with a full kitchen. The suite was very bright and clean. In the mornings, we crossed the street for walks on the beach. We spent early evenings on our deck with a glass of wine, watching the... More

This place is fantastic, got it as a last minute deal but found a vacation spot, half a block from the ocean front. Literally save thousands, it is very clean and updated inside, two bathrooms in each unit as well as a full kitchen, wifi etc, not your average hotel but more of a vacation rental. The managers Randy and... More

Seagull isn't actually a motel, it's 4 small privately owned holiday apartments managed for the owners by an affable local guy, his phone number is in the window of an unused office out front. We stopped in on a Saturday night when everything else in Cayucos was full. We thought we'd take a chance and it met our needs. The... More
