About this listing
Whether you are coming or going from SF to LA this is an ideal spot to break up the trip or better yet-spend a few days. Our home is close to Hwy 1 and Big Sur in natural CA coastal beauty with great local restaurants and sea life everywhere.
Quiet, private room with comfortable queen size bed and private bath in no pet, non-smoking, low carbon footprint household. Enjoy the ocean view, fireplace and kitchen. Go for great walks-We are within walking distance to the Elfin Forest and Estero/Morro Bay and 5 miles from beautiful Montana de Oro. Also 12 miles from the city of San Luis Obispo. Nearby is Morro Bay with great seafood and not too far away is Hearst Castle, wine tasting and the elephant seals. The Central Coast has it all.
Our house is decorated in an eclectic blend of world cultures from our travels to Bali, China, Japan, Nepal, Mexico, Guatemala, and Europe. We hope you enjoy it.
Los Osos/Baywood is a quiet residential community surrounded by natural beauty and is the gateway to the incredible Big Sur Coast of CA.
Entire house, kitchen to use if you need it.
Interaction with Guests
We are available to talk and also respect guests wishes for privacy, if needed.
Baywood is a community of Los Osos. It is older houses near the Bay-great for walking, bird watching, enjoying the scenery. Our neighborhood is a mixture of funky and upgraded houses (we've had a moratorium on building since 1985). It's quiet, safe and although it's a mile walk to the nearest pub or restaurant, it's a great walk! Night life is pretty non-existent-you can always go to Morro Bay or San Luis Obispo.
Public transportation is available but not really convenient-bus every hour to SLO.
Other Things to Note
One of our neighbors is doing a complete home re-model and things can look a bit like a construction zone at times.
Due to the ongoing drought conditions in San Luis Obispo County, we ask that you please conserve water and limit showers to under 5 minutes.
Paula and her husband made us feel very welcome. They had time to talk to us and we enjoyed the conversations we had. We could talk about a wide range of topics and both of them had excellent suggestions about what to do in the area.
Los osos is quiet, exactly what we were looking for, but has some beautiful areas.
The room was as described :)
We would definitely come back, if we're in the area.
I had wonderful experience at Paula's place. The location was perfect - very close to hwy 1 and Morro Bay yet quite and beautiful. The room is very cute and spacious. Paula is very friendly and considerate.
We slept very well at this airbnb! The host is very nice and gave us many tips for our trip. We recommend this airbnb!
Paula and her husband are very nice down to earth people. Very friendly and easy going. They made me feel very welcome in their lovely house. The room is huge and the bed very comfortable. The town has beautiful views and it's a great place to stay if you're traveling either from or to Big Sur. I highly recommend their place. Thanks a lot Paula
Paula and Paul are incredibly welcoming and provide an extremely comfortable bed! They are knowledgeable about the area - they shared tips on both wineries and LA traffic (!) with us - made us some delicious coffee in the morning and generally made us feel very welcome. You get your own really nice bathroom and the bedroom is spacious and tastefully decorated. If anything they made us think we would have liked to spend another day or two in the area. Reccomend without hesitation.
Paula is an extremely friendly individual. Staying at her place is like staying with relatives. She makes a great cup of coffee and is always there to have a conversation with. The location is great for people travelling the California coast. The room is clean and tidy. We enjoyed our stay here.
Paula was in touch by email and text beforehand. Her advice about possible places to stop or explore in Big Sur on my way was very helpful - I might have missed some of them otherwise. I arrived quite late after getting a bit lost, and Paula was so welcoming, offering me a cup of tea and a chat. The room is just as described - clean, spacious and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. Paula provided everything I might need.
