Great quiet place - very comfortable and host David was perfect. He was available for anything we needed but not intrusive at all. Would definitely stay again if my travel brings me back to the area. Thanks David!

We definitely enjoyed our time in this little cottage. The kitchen is well equipped and fulfilled all our needs. Our two little boys slept in the separated bedroom, which worked pretty well. The location of the property is ideal for day trips in this area. You even can walk up the little hill behind the house in a few minutes to enjoy the sunset.

I took my hubby away for a 4 day get-a - way . We spent 3 nights at Libretto Cottage and had a very lovely and enjoyable stay . We found a Trader Joes about 10 minutes away and purchased some basics for our stay . SLO , Morro Bay were not far from our location , which is tucked away from busy highways . We went Zip lining in Margarita Ranch in Paso Robles ... about a 25 minute trip . We had a blast ! We would definitely stay here again . Next time ... we'll bring our SUV ... we arrived at night to Libretto and did not see a small embankment as we drove up the driveway to our cottage ... ouch ... took a hit on my very low fiberglass bumper ...fortunately it will only be a cosmetic repair . Best advise is to take it very slow up the driveway if you arrive at night .

Very welcoming hosts and the cottage is a neat, cozy place to spend a weekend. Location is great - very short drive back into SLO, or to Arroyo Grande / Pismo. David's suggestion of dinner at Gina's Italian Restaurant in Arroyo Grande was great - we loved it. Scratch made Italian food from a local purveyor. Highly suggest it.
