Nature Lovers have found paradise.

  • 5 of 5
I woke each morning before sunrise, took a steaming cup of coffee 30 steps to the Sweet Springs Preserve to watch the sunrise on Morro Rock, then watched the eagles and egrets forage for breakfast as the sun came up. Once things calmed down a bit--I went back for a second cup of coffee in the hot tub, and watched the birds come to the bay by the thousands--from the hot tub. Later in the day we took the kayaks out on the bay, saw great blue herons resting on the shore, and walked the dunes that were untarnished. This part of the central coast is the only truly unspoiled landscape. This is truly a one of a kind place. It is so nice to find such a comfortable nest in the midst of such natural bounty.

How do I like my coffee? With egrets and eagles, of course. What an incredible find

  • 5 of 5
I woke before sunrise every morning, walked out the door, to a menagerie of egrets, waterfowl, even a bald eagle having breakfast over my head. Don't sleep through this magnificant spectacle, just steps from your door. My toes got a bit chilly in December, so I slipped into the hot tub once the morning sunrise dwindeled .to daylight. This place is one of a kind.

Best Value for the Location

  • 4 of 5
My husband, our three kids, and I were quite contented in this little home away from home. As others have noted, it's a simple, humble, old school dwelling with quirks, but it's quite cozy and has just about everything you need...except a working corkscrew, but that was easy enough to pick up down the road. The TV in the master bedroom doesn't work right (volume has to be turned on full blast), but that didn't affect us, since we used the one in the living room (we never even tested out the one in the kids' room).

The hot tub was great, the view from the backyard can't be beat - Morro Rock + hummingbirds & butterflies on a flowering bush. The sunsets, unfortunately, are obscured by large trees on that side, but that's the price of privacy. Speaking of which, the house on the left side (whose deck/windows face the hot tub) is also a vacation rental, so it's kind of a wild card as far as noise goes - we had some loud neighbors for a few days, and the walls are thin, but since were mostly out and about during the day, zoned out on TV at night, it wasn't much of a problem.

There were some ants, but ant poison was conveniently left on the counter, so my husband used that to contain/eradicate them, and it did the trick without much hassle.

All the appliances we used worked fabulously - microwave, DVD player, washer/dryer (very handy, especially for towels), and stove. There were lots of cooking staples, and we used a few, but the spice cupboard needs some clean up - sticky, jumbled, just basically neglected. The dishes/utensils are eclectic. A lot of mismatched china, which we weren't sure was microwave save, so I'd recommend bringing your own favorite mug, knife, etc., if you are at all picky about kitchen stuff.

The house is clean and spacious - large living/dining/kitchen area - with a wood stove that was a delight to use, though it was really too hot this time of year for that. The kids liked the selection of games and had fun playing Life.

The master bed - king size - is unbelievably comfortable. Seriously the best bed in my four decades of sleeping (full disclosure: I can't remember my crib).

What else? Did I mention central location? Basically ten minutes or less to SLO, Pismo, Morro Bay, and not much further to Atascadero, Paso Robles, Cambria, San Simeon. We actually liked Los Osos itself - Nichols Pizza (w/family friendly arcade), Sylvester's Burgers, and of course Montana De Oro / Spooner's Cove.

Thanks, Jean!

Comfortable Place

We loved are visit. The home is comfortable and the nearby nature trail and view of the bay was a nice surprise. We hope to return in warmer weather to kayak in the bay.

Very nice host, neighborhood another story....

  • 3 of 5
The house was great, tons of room and clean. The yard was nice and the view was excellent. Our children thought the "room of many beds" was fun and the yard was great to keeping them contained.
My biggest complaint was the neighborhood. But I can say the Los Osos Police are very nice and were good enough to do some extra patrols one night after we felt threatened by an angry man who came back to the house three separate times after he almost rear-ended us by going way too fast.
Jean was very helpful and nice. Its just too bad the area was a bit run down. Next time, we'll stay in a hotel closer to the better beaches and not in Los Osos.

Owner's Response: this 2 bedroom house is located on a cul-de-sac. there are 5 houses on one side of the street, sweet springs Nature Preserve is on the other side of the street which is owned by the Audubon Society. this neighborhood is so quiet that I have seen deer sleeping in the daytime directly behind the house. I have no idea where this one angry bad could have come from. He is the exception not the rule. this is a country like setting. it is a small town not a city. you can walk to the water or the farmers market.

Fun and relaxing time!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and another couple stayed for 3 days. We enjoyed the relaxed nature of the house, nothing fussy! Plenty of room, the BEST master bed ever (so comfortable), and a great hot tub that over
looked the bay. The house is in very close proximity to the Elfin Forest, the nature preserve right down the street and the Montana del Oro State Beach just a few miles to the south. A wonderful place for dinner is the 10th Street Grill. Great food and serivce and just about 5 minutes from the house. Thanks, Jean, for sharing your house with us!
