Recent Oceano vacation rental reviews

This house was in the perfect location and had exactly what we needed. Beds were a little hard but overall we had a great experience. Would definitely rent it again.

The views were nice! There is a park right across the street. Not far from Grover or pismo. Oceano beach is within walking distance. Plenty of space in the house, the overall vibe of the house is very chill and beachy. Oh, and the balcony that goes around the house is awesome! I can’t wait to stay here again!☺️

We loved spending Memorial weekend at this house. We were a larger group with family from North to Southern California and it was great to catch up in this home. The house has EVERYTHING!!!! All you need is to bring your food and not worry about not being prepared. The house is so big and ample that everyone was very well rested on all the beds throughout the home. The beach is literally in your backyard you have direct access to it and bonfires at night on the beach we’re Awesome to do in our pj’s. Definitely recommend this home to everyone!!!!

Where is Oceano, CA?

This small Central Coast beach town is home to just over 7,200 residents and is neighbors with four other similarly-sized communities - the popular Pismo Beach, the quaint Grover Beach, the rustic Arroyo Grande, and Shell Beach. The closest major metropolitan area is Bakersfield, CA about 130 miles east. Our Oceano vacation homes can be easily accessed via US 101 or State Route 1.

Top things to do in Oceano, CA

Perhaps the area's biggest draw is its dunes, which are the only remaining off-road coastal variety in California. Of the 3,500 acres, about 2,000 are reserved for boisterous, bouncing buggies. March through September, this area is reduced due to the nesting season of the endangered snowy plover and California least tern. If you happen to visit in the autumn, look for these sea birds' chicks skittering in the surf - it's really cute.

Not so much into "cute" as you are "extreme?" Strap into your scrappy off-road ride and zoom on the dunes at the State Vehicular Recreational Area (SVRA). If you're visiting nearby Pismo Beach for its laidback vibe, mix things up with an Oceano ATV rental or guided tour. Each October, thousands congregate in this area for Huckfest, a truck-jumping event that boasts being the “gnarliest high-flying off-road action you will ever see.” Horseback riding and hiking on foot are also great ways to experience this unique ecosystem.

Early 20th century residents of these dunes included utopia-seekers, free spirits, and artists who believed they could channel the wild energy harnessed in this area. Perhaps you'll catch some of these frequencies as you sense the rev of an engine.

On the southern end of the dunes is the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Center that focuses more on the delicate ecosystem than adventure. Follow one of its naturalists on a guided hike, enrich your mind with its educational programs and exhibits, and get inspired by its art gallery. The center also memorializes the largest film set ever built, that of Cecille B. DeMille's 1923 epic The Ten Commandments. Constructed on the area's dunes, it was eventually dismantled and, according to rumor, hidden in the sands. Fast-forward to 1983 when film buffs discovered the myth to be true and revealed the later named "Lost City of Cecil B. DeMille."
