From start to finish, everything was top notch at Karen's Cottage. My girlfriend and I were thrilled at the cozy accommodations and warm reception we received when we arrived. We had everything we needed to get ready for a triathlon the next morning. Karen was so nice to provide snacks, coffee and drinks of all sorts. Really all we could have ever asked for. Loved our stay so much we will be coming back for our next race/training adventure on the Central Coast.
What a wonderful place. It was exactly what we needed. Everything was spotless and the treats were perfect for a light breakfast and afternoon snack. Our hosts, Jim and Karen, made us feel right at home. We found we had so much in common. We highly recommend this lovely hideaway for anyone who needs peace and quiet and time to relax in a country atmosphere. Looking forward to our next visit.

PS. Thanks for sending Judy's makeup bag.
Absolutely the BEST Airbnb experience I've had! Jim and Karen definitely made us feel welcomed at their quiet country cottage. What made us feel even more welcomed were their 3 lovely and well-behaved dogs! Their dog Ruby stole our hearts! Further, communication with them was fantastic, they provided a variety of goodies, and had satellite TV in the cottage. The listing description was accurate to the tee. The neighborhood was in the countryside on the hills, quiet and private. Though only about 5-10 minutes to stores and restaurants! Highly recommended!
Michael, thank you for your great review. It really warmed my heart. I certainly hope you return again some time. Karen
Loved staying at Karen's. Every detail was fabulous. Great second place to stay heading south on coastal route from SF to LA. Sweet surfing in Pismo was third choice after horseback riding and zip line weren't available the day we were exploring locally. :) My mom, son and I appreciated the quiet oak valley, horses, and exquisite attention to detail at Karen's. Thanks!!
Arriving at the cottage, the whole scene is amazing and really nice! Karen has done a great job setting everything up to make the whole vibe very peaceful and cozy! She has taken every step to mind the smaller details as well ie she left some really good snacks out and has a pretty good collection of good DVDs to go along with that TV. The bed is comfy too!
What can I say? Karen and Jim are incredible hosts. My wife, and my child and I were in need of a place to stay. I'd never used AirBnB before, so I hurriedly made an account and saw their place. It immediately seemed like somewhere we'd enjoy. We were struggling with our budget, but I did the math, and figured we could afford their rates. A short while later, I had Karen calling me to tell me the place would be ready in two hours. Suddenly a weight had been lifted from my shoulders.
When we arrived, we were greeted by a darling sign that designated our parking spot right outside the front of their adorable little cottage, tucked deep in a little oak forest. It was beautiful. Karen came out to greet us, and showed us to the guest house. To put it simply, it had everything we'd need and more. Every last detail was in place for our comfort; and we quickly felt at home.
Jim and Karen, and their wonderful animals were like a dream come true. Their hospitality was probably the best I'd ever received. I cannot fully put into words how grateful I am to them. Our entire stay was just bliss. Those three nights were the most peaceful nights sleep I've had in a long time. My wife and I really needed that. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer, and it broke my heart to leave.
Needless to say, we will staying with them again. They're wonderful people, and their home is absolutely beautiful.
A quaint, cozy little cottage away from the crowds and bustle. Comfy bed, TV, satellite TV and DVD's.
Karen is a wonderful host, warm and welcoming. There were snack, treats and a selection of teas, drinks and coffee in the room.
We felt like we were at home, and would stay there again without hesitation.
We know the Central Coast area quite well, and we chose Jim and Karen's place to try out a quiet place to have a restful weekend. It was super quiet to our hearts' content! Extremely quiet and comfortable stay.
The place is in a retired location (that's the plus for those looking for silence and peaceful environment), but at the same time very reachable by car. I highly recommend these wonderful hosts and their cottage.
Upon our arrival, Karen was available right away to greet us and show us everything. Karen was even available before we arrived with any direction problems we had but with her exact directions we had no problem finding the Cozy Cottage. The Cozy Cottage was so darn cute and well stocked with goodies. We just loved the place and the friendly animals! Her husband Jim was so kind to us too and when asked would offer advice on areas to visit. Since this was our first time to California, we appreciated all suggestions. Wonderful memories of them and the Cozy Cottage to last a lifetime!
We stayed two nights and truly enjoyed genuine hospitality, a quiet and peaceful place, and memorable coffee and cream. Would love to come here again for a longer stay.
Karen and her group were exellent guest, the apartment was well careed, and in perfect conditions onece they check out.
Hope next time they visit my city they will choose one of my apartments again
