Overview

About the property

The California Coast untouched by developers. Enjoy while it lasts--old Calif

Sweeping views of Morro Bay and the Rock from the deck and hot tub. Steps to the spectacular estuary preserve. This spacious 2 bedroom home is surrounded by the estuary and 24 acre Sweet Springs Preserve. Walk around the Bay to Baywood for a spectacular sunrise or sunset. 4 miles from Montana De Oro with sweeping vistas, horseback riders, hang gliders and surfers play on its miles of beaches and trails. There is so much to do for those who appreciate the unexploited California Coastal experience. Travel by Kayak across the Bay to the Dunes. The home has been recently redecorated and updated, but not remodeled. The cabinets are oak and the counter tops are tiled. If you are looking for high end modern, this would not be the place.

Los Osos is on the Central Coast of California - halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Hearst Castle, Morro Bay Harbor, Avila Hot Springs, Wine Tasting, Golfing and Shopping are minutes away. This house is ten minutes from San Luis Obispo Airport. Family-owned and operated.

Why Kye Iris chose Central Coast California

Unspoiled California as it once was. You are surrounded by natural beauty. Spectacular views--you can reach out and feel the estuary on all sides. This location is a one in a million.

What makes this house unique

As you drift off to sleep, often you might hear a dull roar. You would think it was the sound of the freeway--but it is the sound of the surf. We encourage you to soak in the natural beauty and wonder of this very special hideaway.

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.

Peaceful stay in Baywood

  • 5 of 5

To tell the truth, this was the best VRBO home we have enjoyed. Very nice location by a nature sanctuary. The house was clean. The kitchen very well stocked. Quiet neighborhood. Hope to visit again.

Quiet with nice views

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed staying at this home. The neighborhood was very quiet. We really enjoyed the view from the back deck of Morro Rock. We also liked taking walks at the bird estuary right across the street. The kitchen is nicely stocked with everything you need to make your own meals. We would definitely stay there again next time we're in the area.

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.

Car: recommended

Easy driving to Hearst Castle, Morro bay Cayucos, Cambria and Wine Country. Whale watching in Morro Bay by boat. Guests have reported seeing them July 2011 off of Montana de Oro a State park, with miles of beaches and trails whose entrance is just one mile away. I have seen a double breech just 2 miles from shore ., July 2011 has seen blue whales and hump back whales in abundance just off shore.
