Our Mission Statement
Ensure a delightful vacation rental experience that exceeds expectations while providing truly professional and caring management services to our property owners.
Beach-N-Bay Getaways was started in 2009 by Nick and Maggie Juren, retired corporate professionals who owned several vacation homes in California and Oregon. They chose to manage their own vacation homes because they felt that the local property management companies didn’t provide their customers the level of attention and responsiveness they expected. Nick and Maggie created Beach-N-Bay Getaways to share their experience and provide the highest level of service and results to vacation home owners and renters.
Beach-N-Bay Getaways has grown into the premier vacation rental property management company in the Morro Bay and Cayucos areas, with a team specializing in guest services and home care. We take exceptional care of the homes we manage and ensure every guest that stays with us has the best vacation experience possible.
