About this listing
Relax in our quiet guesthouse on the scenic central coast. Our property is one acre and the standalone guesthouse is about 600 square feet with a bedroom and kitchen facilities. We’re very close to the ocean, parks, shops, wineries, and more!
Enjoy nature in our quiet, private one-bedroom guesthouse on the scenic central coast. The house is about 600 square feet and completely separated from the main house by a thick oak grove. It has contemporary furniture, a separate bedroom with a full size bed, kitchen facilities, and a back yard patio with grill, table, and chairs. The house has DSL and a strong WiFi signal.
The property and the area are a relatively intact habitat which means lots of birds...we have almost 80 species on our "yard list". However, one of the best features of the area is the magnificent dark sky. The Milky Way is often visible. The property is at about 600 ft. elevation and often clear of the fog along the coast. In addition, the neighborhood has a minimum lot size of 1 acre and the neighbors are very respectful of privacy, light, and noise.
Just a few blocks away hiking trails lead into Montana de Oro State Park. Montana de Oro is an 8,000-acre park with spectacular views, secluded beaches, bluff trails, and picnic spots. The main entrance to the park is about a 10-minute drive out Los Osos Valley Road. Grocery stores, gas, and restaurants are about a mile away.
The coastal city of Morro Bay is about 5 miles to the north and the college town of San Luis Obispo is about 10 miles inland. San Luis Obispo has a fun, historic downtown with a wide variety of shops and restaurants. The area is also known for wine making. There are numerous wineries outside of San Luis Obispo (Edna Valley) and near Paso Robles.
Thanks! We look forward to meeting you!
Guests have access to the patio behind the house and the Adirondak chairs in front. Our guests can usually find a nice, sunny place to relax.
Interaction with Guests
Mosts of our guests want their privacy, so we have very limited interaction with our guests. We make ourselves available, as needed. But the property is fairly large and it is highly likely that you will see very little of us.
Other Things to Note
We have no pets on the property.
No pets and no smoking.
Lisa was very flexible with our stay. We had to change the dates numerous times and she accommodated all our changes. The guest house was as advertised, very peaceful and quit. Everything worked well.
Lisa's cottage was exactly what I needed for a relaxing stay. It was very clean and relaxing, without a lot of clutter. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen nicely stocked for preparing simple meals. The best part for me was the proximity to hiking trails and the overall peaceful surroundings.
I definitely would come back again.
This was a lovely private getaway! The views were spectacular and the home is super peaceful.
This house was exactly as advertised. My wife and I took our mini vacation this year in Morro Bay because it seemed pretty central to the other cities nearby. We home based out of Lisa's place, but we drove to Cambria one morning, then to the local wine country east of SLO in the afternoon. It was nice to have a place to crash afterwards that reminds us of home. Anyhow, Lisa's place was clean and well taken care of. It is on the outskirts of town and was very quiet at night. We were able to come and go as we pleased and nobody ever disturbed us. In short, it was exactly what we were looking for.
If you are looking for a modest, quiet and spacious place in a serene residential neighborhood, this is ideal for you.
This host has the policy of leaving you alone, which worked for me. She was available for questions, however.
Great first airbnb experience. The guest house was private, spacious and clean. The house was a great mix of modern and rustic, like we were staying at a cabin out in the woods, but with excellent wifi. Excellent communication with Lisa before stay. The sleepy little town of Los Osos was exactly the getaway we were looking for.
