About Central Coast

Situated along the majestic Pacific Ocean, California’s Central Coast is full of breathtaking landscapes, historic attractions, and lots of outdoor adventures. Choose from Central Coast vacation rentals with stunning views of the water or charming homes downtown, so you can make the most of your West Coast getaway. The area surely won’t disappoint!


The Central Coast climate is considered Mediterranean, which means temperatures are mild throughout the entire year. While fog is common during the summer, it is limited to the coast. Inland valleys can be warm on summer days, with highs that can reach 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Cloudless skies are among the biggest draw to the area, but keep in mind that a short rainy season lasts from November to April. 


The area is divided into four main regions, each with a variety of Central Coast vacation rentals for travelers looking for a comfortable place to stay. The Ventura region is home to some of the most beautiful stretches of beach in this part of California. Many vacation homes here are centered in the cities of Ventura and Oxnard, while Heritage Valley offers a slower paced atmosphere. Beautiful Mediterranean architecture nestled within picturesque mountains is what characterizes the city of Santa Barbara and the surrounding area. The San Luis Obispo region is full of historic sights, while its coastline is some of the most rugged and beautiful in the state. Finally, settled in the northern reaches is the Montery Bay area. It includes Big Sur and outlying areas closer to San Francisco and is known for its many art galleries and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. 

Things to Do

The Central Coast region has plenty to keep you busy during your entire vacation no matter how long or short you stay. In San Luis Obispo while on a relaxing walking tour of “SLO” historic buildings, you’ll encounter many great family-friendly sights, including the city’s children’s museum and performing arts center. Buses leave regularly from downtown to visit the wine country nearby.

Less than an hour away is Hearst Castle, the former mansion of William Randolph Hearst. This well-known landmark consists of the 60,000 square foot “Casa Grande” and its elegant 30,000 square foot surroundings. It also includes numerous towers, spectacular pools, and more. 

For those looking for a sandy spot to relax, Pismo Beach is one of the most iconic in the area. Choose from Central Coast vacation rentals nearby so you won’t have to go far to enjoy the white sands and pristine beauty that are home to activities like hiking, swimming, fishing, and clam-digging. Whichever beach you choose to stay near, make sure to drive up and down the Pacific Coast Highway to take in sights like seals basking and pelicans perched on the rocks.

History buffs will want to explore the different missions scattered along California’s coast. Mission Santa Barbara and Mission San Buenaventura are just two of the impressive places of worship built by the early missionaries. Both offer tours and an on-site museum to explore.

Food & Drink

Many Central Coast vacation rentals benefit from proximity to the California’s famous wine country. Visit Wolff Vineyards or Tolosa Winery to sample excellent local wines in a picturesque setting. Many different styles of cuisine are represented at area restaurants with the freshest local and organic produce and seafood starring in many dishes. Robert’s Restaurant & Wine Bar in Paso Robles and Novo in San Luis Obispo are two of the best places to linger over dinner and drinks on vacation. 

Whether you are making your first trip to the Central Coast or return year after year, there are always great things to enjoy in the area. Central Coast vacation rentals provide the perfect home base for exploring all that the region has to offer. Visit any time of year for a true West Coast escape.
