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, 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's space was terrific! We had everything we needed for our 4 day and three night stay in Los Osos and the Central Coast region. Very comfortable and quiet setting, just what we were looking for for our vacation.
This "Quite Guest House" was indeed quiet and quite private. VERY cute space with a nice kitchen, comfy bed, and a living room/hang out space. There are chairs and a table outside to enjoy the woodsy area. Though there were some houses around, it almost feels like you are in the woods. BUT stores and everything you need are right there. My friend and I had a great experience in this place!
My wife and I really enjoyed staying at Lisa's place. Surrounding, location is beautiful, cozy, quite, clean and safe....what more can you ask for? We had a great time, would've love to stay longer, we'll be back again. Thank you so much Lisa!
The "Quiet Guest House" was a wonderful place. It is indeed quiet, clean and almost secluded (except for the house on the other side of the fence). It is surrounded by trees on the other sides. The location was great, very close to Montana de Oro State Park. I enjoyed soaking up the sun in the chairs out front, and in back there is a table and chairs. The bed was comfortable and I didn't miss TV since there was Wi-Fi. The only potential downside is the small refrigerator, especially if you have an extended stay. There are lots of windows and it was pleasant to have the light streaming in.
I ran into Lisa twice and she seems very nice. I also received several communications from her to make sure everything was OK. I would definitely love to have a repeat visit.
We loved our stay at Lisa's quiet guest house, which more than lived up to its name. A quick drive or enjoyable hike to the ocean, great view of stars, very quiet neighborhood. The house was very comfortable, with a roomy bedroom, comfy reading nook, small but serviceable bathroom and usable kitchen. Even a little smokey joe out on the patio for some grilling. Hosts were helpful but unobtrusive. Highly recommended.
Wonderful place, private and surrounded by nature, which was just what we wanted. The cottage was well furnished and comfortable in all ways; the bed and shower were excellent. It was not one of those "sumptuous" expensive places, instead being highly adequate and affordable. Lisa and Brian made us feel welcome and were very swift with replies to our questions. We will choose this B&B over all the others, when we visit again!
