Wedding Weekend Accommodations

You've heard me mention VRBO (Vacation Rentals by Owner) plenty, but have you used it yet? If not, here's your chance! We HIGHLY encourage any and all attending our wedding to rent one of the many vacation homes available on the beautiful Central Coast. There are places available whether you want to keep it low key with your +1, or if you want to gather the whole family in one place. (You may recall, VRBO is how we found Flying Caballos, our wedding venue!)

Here's the VRBO link to the Central Coast. The towns of San Luis Obispo, Cayucos, Morro Bay, Los Osos, Pismo Beach, Avila Beach, Arroyo Grande, Oceano and Shell Beach are all good local bets.

Cayucos is probably our favorite place to rent a house in the area. It's a quaint little beach town, chock full of ocean view rentals. It's 15-20 minutes north of San Luis Obispo and the beautiful drive is well worth the short distance. Here are a couple good vacation rental management sites to check out, Cayucos Vacation Rentals and Coastal Escapes Vacation Rentals.

If not a vacation rental home, how about a Bed & Breakfast? The Central Coast definitely has some cozy ones. Visit my Google search here, or go straight to our favorite, Petit Soleil.

Please note, we have not booked a block of rooms at a local hotel, and at this point we're not planning to. We made lots of calls, but we were able to find better deals online than they were offering at a block rate. If you'd like to stick with a hotel, I'd suggest you seach on Kayak.
