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 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.

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.

AMAZING VACATION

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this lovely home. We stayed back in December 2013 and were pleasantly surprised for the recent update to the home. The house is clean and equipped with everything you need. The view from the backyard while sitting in the jacuzzi is incredible. The beds are comfy as well! We took advantage of the kayaks and went out to the nearby spit to explore. We stayed Thanksgiving week and were lucky to have summer like weather. The house is situated near lots of activity choices. We played golf, disc golf, hiked the Valencia Peak, kayaked to the spit, visitied Pismo Beach, Cayucus Beach, and Avila Beach, took the tiki boat tour at Morro Bay, visited the Sweet Springs Preserve each day, walked in the Elfin Forest, and had a great Thanksgiving feast at the house. We are looking forward to another visit soon! Thank you Kye!

Peaceful Easy Feelings...

  • 5 of 5

What a glorious spot to spend a few days in utter relaxation! The pup loved the fenced back yard, we loved the view and spa - what more do you need? It was over 100 degrees those few days at the coast and the house did not have AC, but who would've thought? Once the sun dropped below the trees adjacent to the property, the patio was fabulous! Cannot wait to return.

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.

Car: recommended

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.
