Ok.It’s off the beaten path, slightly. That said, if you wish to experience the central coast in a rural setting, Karen’s Cottage is magical! From the moment that we arrived, Karen waiting on the porch, we knew that we had chosen the perfect place for our central coastal stay. The amenities that she provides: sodas, waters, gourmet coffee, containers filled with nuts, chocolates,and jelly beans! (to mention a few), echo the warmth we felt both of our nights. A perfect location to spend the weekend, especially if you’re attending a wedding celebration on the Central Coast! Thanks Karen.
Karen and Jim were great hosts. Immediately greeting us with warm smiles, making us feel right at home straight away.
Both Karen and Jim have great knowledge of the local area and excellent recommendations on things to do and places to eat. The space is of a reasonable size and very cosy.
And to our surprise Karen had left a tasty and diverse range of snacks.
Karen was a great host and made sure everything was taken care off before we arrived.
With a fantastic secluded location, this spotless clean completely detached guesthouse is a beauty, offering everything you need in the middle of the Central Coast Wine Country. Is very quiet, away of the city & traffic, and is surrounded by wild oaks and quiet nature on a large property managed by our lovely host Karen. She provides everything you need for your stay (plus healthy snacks, chocolates, great coffee variety and a fridge full of drinks!) and she will offer you complete privacy after that. There is a separate entrance and you are completely independent during your stay. We saw horses, deer and wild turkey during our stay on her property. Extremely close to the beach, wineries, and towns. We love it and we’ll be back.
Our host greeted us and made us feel relaxed and the country cottage was as described on the listing.
I loved staying with Karen and Jim! From the minute I arrived, they made me feel welcome and at home. They were the ultimate hosts and provided many extras in the room that were much appreciated - healthy snacks, cold drinks, toiletries etc...
The little house is ideal in terms of privacy, comfort and location. It was a 10-15 minute drive to beautiful sandy ocean dunes, vineyards and great, little towns to explore.
If you want a quiet, off the beaten path experience, this is the best place to stay!
We really enjoyed our stay on Karen and Jim's property. The private cottage located on their large acreage is detached from their main house, and has its own entrance past the Koi pond and through your own small garden. Very relaxing and quiet with great views of their large oak groves.
Upon our arrival we agreed that the pictures do not fully do the cottage full justice! It is a very cute and comfortable space... like a home away from home!
The room was well stocked with drinks and snacks including a nice touch of having several items made in the local area.
They provided great ideas for various local activities, attractions and restaurants to help us explore the local area.
Thanks for the stay Karen and Jim and look forward to seeing you again!
