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 San Luis Obispo. Near by 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 at 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 SLO.
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 were so welcoming and amazing hosts! The room was very comfortable and spacious and you can't beat an ocean view of beautiful Morro Bay from their living room! They put together a great packet of restaurants and info for the surrounding area that was also very helpful. Breakfast was delicious and we definitely hope to visit Los Osos again in the future :)
Paula is one of the warmest people I have ever meet and our stay with her was lovely. She had some great tips of where to grab food and we ended up at a nearby burger place, called Sylvester's - absolutely delicious! The bed was extremely comfortable and the view of the bay from their home was pretty amazing. We ended our stay with some chocolate croissants and coffee, which was a very welcome surprise. One of the best airbnb stays I have had to date!
We had an outstanding stay in Paula's home, where she shared many travel tips from her own experience, prepared a great breakfast, and made us feel truly at home. We could not recommend her more highly to other travelers.
Beautiful house, friendly hosts! We stayed only for one night on our way from SFO to LA and it suited the purpose greatly. Thanks Paula!
