Laughing Buddha Beach House Hotel Review

: This phenomenally popular vacation rental is a short drive north of Pismo Beach on a semi-private residential street in Shell Beach. It's a short walk from the ocean for tidepooling, strolling, or sunbathing. Everything inside this child-friendly house is designed with the best of feng shui in mind, and the colors are bold and fun. There are two bedrooms with queen-sized beds and a loft with a king-sized bed. The bathroom comes stocked with organic bath and body products, including bubble baths. There's also a fully equipped gourmet kitchen for whipping up seafood dinners with wine pairings from nearby vineyards. An herb garden and fire pit are in the backyard, where a hot tub awaits by the koi pond and fountain. The living room has a cozy gas fireplace and a TV, VCR and DVD player with a library of movies to watch. Beach chairs, towels and umbrellas are provided for day escapes. Fresh fruit and a bottle of wine are set out for guests upon arrival. Dogs are welcome here.
