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.

An ideal sleepy getaway. Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We were driving the Pacific Coast Highway and needed a stopover. I'm so glad we found this place. Quiet and right on the edge of the nature reserve, we loved walking down the boardwalk to the edge of the bay. Birdlife, greenery and foggy vistas. Magical! We dined in at a local Thai restaurant. The property seems a little older but is very clean. I could see myself staying here longer if I had the time.

Thanks Kye!

We were very nervous as this was our first vacation rental ever. I did a LOT of searching online up and down the Central Coast and finally decided to take a chance with this one. I had some questions for the homeowner's daughter, Kye, and she responded very quickly so we decided to go for it. I am very happy we did!

The house was the perfect size for me, my wife, our 16 month old son and our Golden Retriever, Mylie. It was important that our son have his own room (not an affordable option with a hotel) as he sleeps better - and so do we. And Mylie goes everywhere we go because she is practically human.

The weekend before we were to arrive, Kye contacted us to let us know that there was a potential problem - the water would be shut off for a time our second day in because of an issue with another house on the street and said she would be willing to "make it right" and offered some alternatives. We were so impressed by this! I told her we weren't concerned about it... as it turned out, it wasn't a problem (water was only off for a couple of hours while we were out and about). Kye's concern over this tells me much about her and how the property is managed! That's very important...

As it turns out, we arrived just after Kye, herself, had spent many days at the house painting, etc. How awesome is that?? And we were thrilled to be the first to stay after all the work she had done. We were very happy with what we saw when we arrived. Like most rentals I searched for in the area, this home is an older one and, as another reviewer pointed out, it "has some quirks". We found it to be a very charming home.

A really important thing to us... it was CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN!! The carpet throughout had obviously been recently cleaned. Most of the interior has been freshly painted; looks like the outside of the house got a fresh coat, too... a very pretty blue. The bathrooms were SPOTLESS. That's a big deal to me. We've stayed in hotels where my white socks were filthy from dirty floors. Not in this house! The floors were so clean that we felt totally comfortable with our little boy rolling and playing around on them. I would NEVER feel good about that in any of the hotels we have ever stayed at!

Kitchen is well-equipped and everything works great. Cable TV is great, wireless internet is fast and reliable. BEAUTIFUL VIEWS and lovely walks through Sweet Springs. LOVED IT! Quiet... can hear the ocean at night!

Nice place

  • 3 of 5

The house was a nice enough place. It was clean and relatively large. Beds were too soft for a person who likes firmer mattresses. The view of the Moro Bay rock in the brochure is from the back yard from a raised deck overlooking the neighbors yard.

So much better than we anticipated.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and two friends spent four nights at this lovely home. Quiet, clean, spacious, lovely back yard with amazing views, incredibly communicative property manager, nicely equipped kitchen (including coffee grinder). Walking distance from Baywood, where there are small eateries and a momma-poppa grocery store. The estuary is gorgeous. Feels like you are truly "away"...yet, you are still close to tourist areas, walking paths, etc.

From the Owner

Once you find this hideaway you will want to come back and stay again and again. It is a rare piece of paradise that you can only appreciate by being there.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : San Luis Obispo at 12 Miles Nearest Train : San Luis Obispo at 12 Miles Nearest Motorway : Highway 1 at 5 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Back Bay Cafe at 0.3 Miles Car: recommended

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.
