About Us

Richard and debbie Shannon
Richard & Debbie Shannon

Richard Shannon moved to the area in 1976 and never left. He is the General Manager of On the Beach, so you’re likely to see him or his wife of more than 30 years, Debbie, around the hotel during your stay. Unless the surf is good, and then you’ll find him in the water. Be sure to check out the photos of him surfing next to the kitchen window.

The Patrick Family

Mike Patrick was born and raised in the area and moved back here with his wife, DD, and their three daughters in 1990. The Patrick family is thrilled to welcome you to the Central Coast and encourages you to check out some of their favorite activities in the area including hiking the Harmony Headlands Trail and visiting Alta Colina winery outside of Paso Robles.

Jeanne Helphenstine

Jeanne grew up in the area as well; her family ties go back more than 100 years! She grew up on a ranch and continues to be involved in agriculture and real estate, and is very active in supporting the local community. She and Mike have been friends since high school.
