The space

Studio apartment with bathroom and full kitchen in a quiet and safe neighborhood on the central coast. Wonderful hiking and ocean views just a short walk away. Morro Bay Rock and Estuary, Montana De Oro State Park and beaches a leisurely 5-10 minute drive. Enjoy a day driving up the coast seeing the elephant seals and the historic Hearst Castle in beautiful San Simeon.

Your accommodations are a detached studio from the main house on a beautiful acre set away from the street with your own private parking. I want to emphasize that the living areas are quite small and compact, so someone with a larger stature is not disappointed with the accommodations, but besides that, the studio should have everything you need. It's very clean, light and open. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and safe and your studio will be a very private getaway.

We are a 15-20 minute drive to San Luis Obispo; a very fun college town with plenty of night life and an adorable downtown shopping area. We have some very nice wineries in the area and you can spend the afternoon tasting if you'd like. My place is off the beaten path, so although there is a bus stop about a mile away, you will most likely need your vehicle to get to most places conveniently. :)

To make sure I am respectful of all future guests, I have a very strict policy about smoking inside the studio. Thank you ahead time for your consideration and for being who respectful of this request. The neighborhood is very quiet so no loud parties or guests. I would really like to see a profile picture, a few words about yourself and the purpose and of your trip before I can accept a booking, Thank you very much for understanding and I look forward to meeting you!

Interaction with guests

My only interaction with guests is a brief hello during your stay just to introduce myself. Otherwise, unless there is a problem, I will give you your complete privacy as I am a private person myself. For those of you only staying briefly, it is possible that I may not see you at all being that we may be on different schedules. :)

Getting around

There is a bus stop about a mile away -- but public transportation is minimal. In our little town, it is best to have a vehicle to get around.

Other things to note

Due to my work schedule, I do travel and work long hours at times. I may not always be able to accept one night stays or I may not be home during your stay. You can message me for special requests for one nights stays. I do charge more for one "nighters" because I have to pay a cleaning person. From now through December one night stays are ($124). I will do my best to accommodate you. Thanks for your patience, understanding and your interest! :)

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 3PM


Just a reminder, I do have a 2 person maximum, this includes children and infants. I'm not kidding when I say "cozy cottage". Thanks! :)

This is my family home so please be respectful of my family's privacy. I am available by cell phone to answer any questions and to make sure your stay is perfect. If you need anything, just give me a call and I will do everything I can to accommodate you. The studio has most items (similar to a hotel stay). I do provide basic kitchen items, it's not gourmet, but should do the trick (Coffee, tea, sugar, salt and pepper are also there). I have a few other items (toiletries, dish soap, etc.), but not a lot. I have found that everyone has their own favorites so it's hard to know what to provide. Basically what's there you're welcome to, but may not be enough for a stay of more than a few days.

Again, no smoking, no pets and no laundry facilities - there is a laundromat about a mile a way. Please try to keep reasonably quiet out of respect for my wonderful neighbors. Please have a safe drive to the central coast and thanks again for booking with me!

For our purposes, Kymm's cottage is a great location. The size of the cottage is perfect for a couple, and the place is very clean and well-equipped. The host was unobtrusive, but she was always available for any questions or requests. But we did not have to ask her questions about the area or nearby attractions as she furnished the cottage with brochures and maps. My husband and I were very satisfied and glad we stayed at Kymm's place and will do so again.

The cottage is very clean and comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom are nice, and we made eggs for breakfast on both mornings of our stay. It's a short drive to downtown Morro Bay and only about 20 minutes to downtown SLO, so an excellent location. Thanks!

Cozy, quiet, with all needed amenities in a beautiful setting. And just 15 minutes outside SLO. What more could you ask for?!

A great place to stay if you want to visit San Luis Obispo, Morro bay, Cayucos and Montana de Oro state park. Close to hiking trails, beach and town. Dined at Noi's Thai restaurant, as Kymm suggested, and loved it. Very good food. Loved Kymm's studio, a great space for two people. Thanks again Kymm for being the amazing host that you are.

Great place at a great price. This is our second time staying with Kymm and she is a terrific host. We'll be back.

This was a perfect base for exploring the Central Coast, and Kymm was a wonderful host. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed, plus some great extra snacks, drinks, and breakfast items. Kymm even left some champagne and a card for us because it was our anniversary! Check in was seamless and we loved the secluded location between SLO and Morro Bay. We would highly recommend Kymm's place to anyone and will return when we are back in the area.

Kymm User ProfileKymm is a superhost.

I am currently living in Los Osos, California which is located on the central coast. I have lived there for 20 years but I am previously from San Diego. I work for a financial planning firm and I spend a lot of time with my children who are young adults now. When I am not hanging out with them I like to read, garden and travel to new places every chance I get. I really enjoy meeting new people and is why I enjoy the airbnb experience. That's pretty much all I'm up to right now. Oh, also, I'm a non-smoker, quiet but friendly, and I love a nice glass of wine with friends now and again! Cheers! :)
