The Space

In additional to using the front door, you can come and go through the private entrance to your room. Two queen beds. Max capacity 4 people.

Garden patio and decks with ocean & Rock views just outside your room. This room (email hidden), frig, TV, two queen beds. Enjoy the rain showers and Jacuzzi tub in the two recently remodeled beautiful spa bathrooms : ).

From the living room, dining room, and decks, there are outstanding full views. Excellent partial views from your room and garden patio.

You will absolutely love Morro Bay! It is so inspiring to look at Morro Rock - the impressive rock formation where sea meets sand. The endless blue ocean and expansive beach with surfers and an occasional horse are so impressive. Its a great jog from my house along the beach to the Rock and back.

The town of Morro Bay has a surprising wharf bustling with shops and outstanding and romantic restaurants - no chains, all original. The vibe of Morro Bay is fantastic.

Nearby is Hearst Castle, Cambria, Cayucos, Harmony, Pismo Beach, Avila Beach and San Luis Obispo. The entire area has over 300 wineries and rolling hills of grape vineyards and views - just astounding during the growing season.

This is a NO SMOKING house/yard. Ahhh.... fresh air everywhere!

Welcome to Morro Bay!

Guest Access

Also, enjoy the outdoor hot shower after a day at the beach, or if you just enjoy showering outside : ).

When I am home, I keep bagels and English muffins with cream cheese, butter and jam in the frig. Tea and coffee. Help yourself!

I also usually have several snacks including cereals, granola bars, peanut butter, (website hidden) the cabinets.

Occasionally I will bake fresh scones in the mornings. Yum!

WASHING MACHINE: Due to a water shortage in Morro Bay, guests may no longer use the washing machine.

Interaction with Guests

I am usually home but occasionally away. If I am not home, I am also not available to serve any appetizers or wine, or have bagels in the frig, but you are welcome to find snacks in the cabinets.

When I am at home, I occupy the upstairs and you will have complete privacy downstairs. I will go with the flow if you want privacy, or want to hang out with me in the living room and dining room! Many, many good times have been had with guests who want to hang out! : ).

While children are allowed, they are counted as guests - all ages. So if a mom & dad bring a 15 month old, for example, that would be 3 guests.

The Neighborhood

I absolutely love this precious neighborhood! My house is perched in the hills of Morro Bay, with fantastic ocean and mountain views. As you drive up the hill you see homes with quaint boats such as the "Scampi" and "Castaway," and seaside decor of dolphins, whales, pelicans and starfish.

Up from my street, the drive gets very steep, and the houses very nice, and it makes for a great morning walk or run. Remarkable views every step!

Getting around

Walk to the beach and some local restaurants from here, including the super popular "Taco Temple" for the most amazing fish tacos ever! Or, drive to the Embarcadero for other restaurants. Lots of public transportation on Main St, just a few blocks down the hill.

Other Things to Note

House is full of art & antiques.... and whimsy! Children count as guests.

  • Our stay at Linda's couldn't have been better. Check in was easy, communication was good, the room was very clean and her place well located. Actually we only met Linda once on the day we left. But as our first impression she's a lovely person which we can highly recommend to stay with.

  • Linda was a fabulous host! She had a beautiful, private bedroom and shared bathroom which had a heavenly shower. Linda gave us great tips on the area, was super organized, and very helpful. She even got up early to make us coffee and tea and say goodbye when we were leaving. She is a charming host and comes highly recommended!

  • Linda was an spectacular host! Not only did we received everything she detailed in the publication but also she was extremely helpful with suggestion and guidance about Morro Bay.
    One recommendation for other visitors would be to try to spend more than one night since the town is just beautiful and there are interesting things to visit and to do for which one day is too short.
    Also I'd definitely encourage you to stay with Linda. You'll love her!

HI - my name is Linda and my two favorite places in the world are Morro Bay and South Lake Tahoe! I have a beach house in Morro Bay and a ski place in Tahoe that I offer on Airbnb. I am a SF/Bay Area transplant to the Central Coast, most recently from Emerald Hills, near Redwood City. I have a 19 yr old daughter in college. I'm a U.C. Berkeley grad who still has a lot of Berkeley in her. I love healthy eating and exercise. In Morro Bay I am completely mellowed out by the ocean view and beauty of the central coast from my livingroom window. : ) In Tahoe, the view is giant pine trees and snow covered mountains. Both are such stunning areas. In Morro Bay for hiking there is the stunning Montana de Oro bluffs, the waterfall at reservoir canyon, Mt. Madonna, Bishops Peak, the Harmony Headland trail to the ocean, and so many other coastal hikes.. In Tahoe, there are countless trails and smaller lakes such as Fallen Leaf Lake, and Burnside Lake. I do still love Zumba, Pilates and yoga, too. Love to have guests stay, and I stay out of your way, but am also here to chat with about the area if you want. Thanks! Linda
