Give Your Car the Love it Deserves with Monarch Mobile Auto Detail

My car tends to be my office most days and being always “on the go” does not give me much time to keep it in tip top shape. So, it was a huge relief to find someone to return it to new and client-ready! Timing was right and three Pismo Beach Homes Team members had…

Local Landscape Photography by Michael Ambrose

This winter, on our way to Yosemite, my family stayed at the world-renowned Tenaya Lodge. On a side note — this grand hotel in our own backyard is so well-known they welcome guests from all over the world — and will be the subject of a future blog post so stay-tuned. Anyhow, Tenaya Lodge has…

Grab a Coffee at Kraken

The central coast has gained another Kraken Coffee and it is just what Pismo Beach needed! Comfortable seating and freshly roasted coffee with the bonus of ocean views gave me a refreshing start to my morning. If you need a little bit more sustenance to start your day, then they offer up delicious handmade breakfast…

Quality Coffee at Quintessa

Drive down Highway One in Oceano and you will find the sweetest little coffee shop around.  It is my local fav!  A big change from the branded chain coffee shops, filled with advertisements, and step into Quintessa. This lovely roasting house has a warm inviting environment where you are greeted by a friendly barista, ready…

CHERRY LANE NURSERY

Just outside the Village of Arroyo Grande lies a quaint little nursery that I love to visit all year round called Cherry Lane. It feels like home — and that is in large part because it is a family-owned and operated business where you can relax and enjoy your shopping experience. All the plants, trees,…

Comfort Market

Updated April 15th, 2015 – When Gather was forced to close due to failed landlord negotiations the Village lost a favorite. What we got in return was a better, bolder, bigger version with many new features. Armed with many researched ideas owner/chef Kari Ziegler wanted a bistro with a gourmet market and wine bar as…

Phone & Wireless – Your Local Verizon Store

The best place to buy/order your new iPhone 5S/5C! My relationship with Phone &Wireless has been an evolution. When we returned to the Central Coast 12 years ago we had became At&t clients because our employers were, and so followed the herd without thinking of researching our options (not something we would recommend!) So while…
