On The Beach Bed & Breakfast was built in 2004 as a 14 room Boutique Hotel and was originally named the Pierpointe Inn. The current owners Richard Rengel and Richard and Debbie Shannon purchased the property in September of 2007. We remodeled the kitchen to produce gourmet meals, redesigned the Lobby and installed all new landscape. We continuously strive to keep our rooms above standard, while maintaining our beach charm and mystique. We have also changed the name to On the Beach Bed & Breakfast at the time of purchase. The name came from our guests who were always commenting what a great location we had right next to the pier and On the Beach.
Our philosophy is provide an elegant, comfortable beach oriented vacation for our guests. We have promoted a daily, freshly cooked, incredible breakfast tradition, as well as an evening social hour. Breakfast items span a range of different styles, emphasizing the diverse background of our staff, while social hour items are customized to balance and pair with the wines we are serving each day. The owners all have long time roots in San Luis Obispo County. Richard Rengel is a commercial Architect who graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and currently resides in San Luis Obispo. He is a well-respected commercial architect, an avid flier, skier and very active member of the Cal Poly Alumni Association. Debbie Shannon was raised in San Luis Obispo and also graduated from Cal Poly, SLO. She has been a recreation supervisor for both the cities of San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles and currently handles are wine program and oversees the staff. Richard and Debbie reside in Atascadero. Richard Shannon moved to San Luis Obispo County in 1976 and has been active in Real Estate Brokerage and Development in San Luis Obispo County since 1977. He is Co-Owner / Broker of Peabody & PLUM REALTORS in Atascadero.

Our staff is comprised of local residents, who have an extensive knowledge of the area and can provide great suggestion for every type of activity. We are grateful of the family feel we are able to evoke, provided that guests asks us all the time if everyone working at On the Beach is related. We invite you to consider On the Beach, Bed and Breakfast as the lodging establishment for your next trip to our wonderful area.
“Stayed this last weekend and DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE!!!
I was lucky enough to get a Living Social deal to use at the B&B, which was largely what made us pick the place. I looked at the reviews before buying and everything seemed generally good, so I took the plunge. I was so pleasantly surprised when we got there. If wasn’t just “ok”, it was awesome. The staff was friendly, the room was nice with a huuuuuge bathtub big enough for two (perfect for a bubble bath and glass of wine since you’re in wine country) and the breakfasts in the morning we superb – unique dishes served to order when you arrived downstairs in the morning. On top of that, free wi-fi so we could plan our trips to wineries and Hearst Castle. I was so happy with our stay and I am recommending it to everyone I know. Be sure to call early so you can get one of the beach front rooms, awesome view of the pier and the coast. There is also a great hot tub outside with a view of the beach.” – Rebecca H.
“This is a GREAT HOTEL. The location is epic, separated from the sand of a cool beach by a small one lane road!! You can leave the slider open and be lulled to sleep by the sound of waves gently breaking on the sand. That alone is worth the price of admission. We stay here on the 4th of July and are right in the heart of an old school parade and celebration! Doesn’t get better than this!!” – Maurice L.
