About Kye Iris
I recently moved to Seattle to greener semi-retirement. I can still answer some of your questions, and will refer others to my daughter Kye who manages the property for me. Please call me if you have any questions and tell me how I can make your stay more enjoyable. She works 8-5, but will respond as quickly as she is able.
Kye Iris purchased this House in 1989
Why Kye Iris chose Los Osos
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. This special place is not a tourist destination. It is a well kept local hideaway that is not changing rapidly due to so many endangered species and environmentally sensitive restrictions on growth. We invite you to come and stay with us, understanding that this is a very quaint local community that treasures its residential way of life. We hope you can enjoy this rare and unique treasure on the California coast. It is not for everyone. Close your eyes and imagine what it was like to live in California circa 1962. Open your eyes and look out on this period in time and remember what it was like before everything became somewhat homogeneous and sterile. Enjoy it while you can.

Refuge by a Small Bay
Charming cottage next to a bird refuge on Morro Bay. Everything you need for a quiet getaway.
Can't say enough good things
The property is lovely and inviting. We truly enjoyed our stay and wished we didn't have to leave. The view is amazing and we spent many hours on the deck gazing at the birds and "the rock." We even took some walks around the bird sanctuary that was two doors down from the house.
It was a wonderful stay. The house is well appointed with so many things that you will need, and some you didn't know you needed. (extra towels in the bedroom near the door to the hottub)
We will absolutely be back!
Location location location, maybe not for everyone, but we absolutely loved the birds and quiet, n seven springs right across the street . After rearranging the furniture it felt better, the kitchen was well equipped (although the stove n microwave had some issues) . Having the back yard n jacuzzi overlooking Moro bay was fabulous. Heaven for our 2 older dogs........ we would stay again, the community is sweet, very walking n biking friendly
Nice stay in quiet bay
We liked the trails for walking and birding. The house has spacious bedrooms, well equipped kitchen. Even has filtered drinking water. We will return when we can . No view of ocean from the house but the patio is built up high enough to view Morro Rock ..That was pleasant!
Steps from the Sweet Springs Nature preserve. A few blocks away from Elfin Forest preserve. Montana De Oro is a must see just 2 miles away. Sweeping vistas of wild unspoiled rocky California Coast. Whale watching in Morro Bay by boat or off the coast from Montana De Oro, with miles of beaches and trails. July 2011 has seen blue whales and hump back whales in abundance just off shore. Bird watching in the winter is spectacular from the deck, or from Sweet Springs preserve just steps away.
