Cozy Cottage on Sunny Hillside

Apartment - Entire home/apt · La Mirada Ln, Los Osos, CA 93402, United States

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. It is quite small and compact but has 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.

We have one overly friendly dog named Kylee that tends to get excited around strangers. She will be hanging out in a different area of the yard and in my home during your stay and should not interrupt your visit and "R & R".

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 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 of your trip before I can accept a booking, Thank you very much for understanding and I look forward to meeting you!

Guest Access

Guest will have access to the cottage area and parking described in the Airbnb listing.

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My girlfriend and I had a great weekend in the cottage. So much to see and do in the area. We hope to come back.

  • Our (regrettably!) short stay at Kymm's tiny cottage was my absolute favorite Airbnb experience. Despite the fact that we never met in person due to conflicting schedules, Kymm was an incredibly gracious and accommodating host. Everything was seamless and easy.

    The cottage was immaculate and the bed was so, so comfortable. The tiny kitchen was fully stocked, and Kymm left us some treats (juices, bananas, trail mix!). The cottage is truly off the beaten path - but that's exactly what we loved about it. The area is quiet and scenic, and it is just a short drive to the ocean. We would absolutely return to Kymm's cottage, and highly recommend it.

  • Great place to stay. Clean, comfortable, quiet and great location or access to Montana de Oro and other coastal sites.

  • Our stay at Kymm's cottage was all we'd hoped for. Although tiny, the space is very user friendly, with a full and well equipped kitchen plus a good sized walk-in closet. The cottage was very clean; bed was comfortable. Though it is on the property with Kymm's family's house, the placement of the cottage and the lovely landscaping give it great privacy with parking right in front. It is also very quiet!
    Kymm was a perfect host, making all necessary information clear before our arrival. She also provided a number of special treats which were nice to find upon arrival.
    Great stay!

  • Our stay at the 'cozy cottage' was perfect! We were in Cayucos, a short 20 minute drive, from Los Osos for business. The setting is quiet and clean. Kymm is a considerate host, and is excellent on gettting back to you with any questions or concerns you may have.

  • Kymm is an outstanding hostess. She is always available to answer your questions, but does not hover and take away your privacy. The cottage is a delight. It has everything from a complete kitchen to a wonderful and comfortable bed. Easy private parking at your door step and a very quiet, but central location was perfect. We were only able to stay for 2 days, but if the opportunity arises, we would like to stay for more. We would definitely recommend Kymm's Cottage for anyone in this part of So. Cal. Kymm, thanks for a memorable stay.

  • Enjoyed our stay at this cozy cottage. Though the weather was not in our favor, we were thankful to have a clean, cozy place to come home to after our daytime excursions to nearby wineries. It is in a very nice and safe neighborhood, located 20 min. away from SLO. I would definitely book this again if I am in the area!

  • My husband and I really enjoyed our time at Kymm's cottage. The space was super clean, nicely decorated and quiet. If you're looking for a place away from the noises of the city this the place. The area is super peaceful with birds chirping in the morning and a million stars in the sky. We definitely recommend the cottage and staying with Kymm. She is super responsive and provides a list of things to do in the area. Definitely plan to return in the future.

  • You're in for a positive surprise if you stay at Kymm's Cottage in Los Osos. It's located some distance from the main house wihich results in a private and very quiet environment.
    The cottage is nicely decorated and fully equipped. It also has a full modern kitchen. The overall esthetics of this property are not fully revealed in the listing, thus the positive surprise.
    We were fortunate to spend a little time chatting with Kymm. She is very intent on providing an enjoyable experience for her guests and was spot on with her restaurant suggestions. Last but not least, she is quite a charming woman.

  • I stayed at the cozy cottage for one night this February. The cottage is a delight. Great location & very easy to find. The cottage was very clean. Kymm left a few little treats which were a lovely touch. Kymm also left clear instructions about the cottage and the surrounding area. A perfect stop for my trip up the PCH!

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! :)
