Day 326 of the Nowhere To Be Project brought us to the end of our stay in Cayucos, California. Cayucos translates in English to “a dugout fishing village” and the name could not be more appropriate for this sleepy central California coastal town. We were in Cayucos for three nights and stayed at Bella Vista By The Sea.
Bella Vista By The Sea is a tidy and compact RV resort with massive views. It is just across the street from the ocean and just a short walk from downtown Cayucas which offers many opportunities for dining and antiquing. The pet friendly park is very quiet and well cared for which may explain why there are so many permanent residents. We were in spot #29 which is considered an ocean view site, and it would have been had there not been another RV to our immediate right. The best spot in the park is #1, so try to reserve that if you’re looking for unobstructed ocean views!
We paid just under $65 a night which we found to be a deal considering the scenic locale and constant sea breeze. That rate includes full hook ups, wifi (which was among the fastest we’ve experienced at a campground) and access to the shower houses and laundry facility. The bathhouses leave a bit to be desired as they are very, very old, but the laundry room is large and reasonably priced with efficient machines and an outdoor clothesline.
Our stay at Bella Vista By The Sea was such a pleasure and earned four out of five Nowhere To Be Project hearts on our scale mainly because of its location and proximity to the sea. Also, it is just minutes to Hearst Castle, Morro Bay and countless other SLO County destinations, making it a wonderful choice for either a long or short stay.
