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.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

My three girlfriends and myself wanted to get away for a week. This was the perfect place to do it. The house is cozy and comfortable. Even though the house is small, it seemed pretty spacious. The bedrooms are good size and the beds were easy to sleep on.

But, the best part is the view from the deck. We had a beautiful view of Morro Bay and the Rock, though far away. The hot tub is also great.

All in all, I would highly recommend this rental. All of us felt at home from the moment we walked in, and none of us wanted to leave.

Thanks, Kye, for a great week.

lovely vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Place was perfect for us. Tranquil, beautiful setting, comfortable cottage, with spacious rooms. my favorite part was that our fur babies were allowed to join us and the estuary trail right outside the front door made for easy canine constitutional walks. A gorgeous bouquet of flowers on the dining room table greeted us, fenced backyard was lovely, with great vista of Morro Rock and the bay. really enjoyed our time there. Kye & Judie went out of their way to make everything right for us. highly recommend this vacation spot.

Relaxing get-way for vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely little house! It was so nice sitting outside, enjoying the warmth of the sun and the cool of the breeze. We spent a week around graduation at Cal Poly. It was great to move away from the craziness of SLO and enjoy the quite of Los Osos. The house was a little dated, but all amenities were there. The bed in the master was soooo comfortable. The hot tub so soothing. Walking through the Sweet Springs Estuary brought us closer to nature. Would highly recommend for a relaxing get-away with access to other areas.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! Very clean and roomy. Hot tub is a plus.

So many things to do in the area. We did a lot of sight seeing. We went to Cambria, lots of shops there, cute little town. Went to the mission at San Luis Obispo, also went to a botanical garden in SLO. Recommend going to Ragged Point, the farthest up the coast you can drive before the Hiway 1 road closure. Beautiful place. Good snack bar there for lunch. Make sure you stop to see the Elephant seals!

Cayucos has a nice beach, and the Estero Bluffs State Park is a beautiful place. You can look for moonstones or other nice pebbles at Moonstone beach.

We took the kayaks out. Launched them at the marina at the state Park. You will need a truck to transport them. Good restaurant there by the kayak launch, and stop by the museum there too.

The town of Morro Bay has great shops and restaurants and is right next to the harbor.

Make sure you go out to Morro Rock, there are a lot of Sea Otters that hang out there.

The Elfin Forest is not far away from the house and has a nice boardwalk path.

The Audubon preserve is right next to the house and has a nice path through it.

So many things to do, if you are a nature lover you will like this area.

We cooked dinners at the house, then a glass of wine on the deck or hot tub.

Kye was great to communicate with before the trip, and will get back to you right away if you have any questions.

Thank you Kye for sharing your house with us!

The home is located on a very quiet dead end street in the estuary adjacent to Sweet Springs Preserve, a 24 acre bird preserve. It is two miles from Montana De Oro with spectacular unspoiled beaches where horseback riders, hang gliders and surfers play on its miles of beaches and trails. Just a one mile hike around the Bay and over the Dunes to a gorgeous remote beach. Can also travel by Kayak across the Bay to the Dunes. This is unspoiled California. Tourists generally don't find this hideaway. Don't miss the Elephant Seals up the Coast.

Hearst Castle, Morro Bay Harbor, Avila Hot Springs, wine tasting,

golfing and shopping are minutes away.
