Overview

About the property

An oasis In the heart of Old Town with beautiful gardens, fountains and birds.

An oasis In the heart of Old Town with beautiful gardens, fountains and birds. Loaded with charm and flooded with light! Built in the 20's, this home has been carefully restored and updated without sacrificing the special esthetic of the period. From the original clear Douglas fir floors, antique light fixtures, wide floor and window moldings to the vintage gas pot bellied stove (fireplace), the large bathroom with soaking tub and pedestal sink. The master bedroom has a queen bed with a black iron headboard, antique oak highboy dresser and vintage chandelier. The second bedroom features an antique oak library table/desk and a twin daybed with trundle. The kitchen is sunny and bright with hand painted tiles and windows that look out onto the garden fountain and bird feeders.

And the location couldn't be better! Just one block from downtown shops, restaurants and the vintage Bay Theater. Only 2 blocks from the Embarcadero and the waterfront! Just a short walk to the Morro Bay Aquarium, to rent kayaks or go whale watching. You can even see Morro Rock from the front porch and yard. Sit under the gazebo with morning coffee or a glass of wine, looking out to the bay and listening to the songbirds. This is a truly special place.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very nice stay in Morro in this sweet cottage. Very comfortable, clean, and well stocked. Super close to the Embarcadero where shops and restaurants abound. Farmers market on main Saturday was fun. Would definitely stay at this location again.

Cozy and charming!

  • 5 of 5

Super clean cottage with quaint and delicate touches! Great quality linens and comfortable beds. Kitchen is well stocked with coffee maker, cookware, service ware, etc.

Such a convenient location - right along downtown, one block from restaurants and Saturday's farmers market, and just two blocks to the bay!

Would definitely stay here again!

Cozy Cottage and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

A short walk to the beach and Morro Rock yet right in downtown. Beautiful flowers and water features surround the cottage.

Super comfy linens and fluffy towels. Kitchen is well equipped and even had extras like vinegar,oil and spices.

A most relaxing vacation. We beach walked, kayaked, ate in and out.

Didn't want to leave! You will not be disappointed ! Thank you Kelly and Brian!

We love Morro Bay. The Cottage is in a perfect location for walking to the marina and all the shops.

We had planned on staying a month. However it's on a major intersection and the traffic noise was bad. Especially on the weekends. The main bedroom faced the street and the traffic noise continued until 10 p.m. or later.

We were disappointed in the condition of the yard and furniture. We would have enjoyed spending more time outside. Not to mention the cat problem.

We feel it's over priced!

Owner's Response: I’m sorry you did not enjoy your stay and am disappointed you didn’t share your concerns during your stay. With our terrific downtown location and close proximity to the very popular Embarcedero, there is of course, increased traffic in the area during peak seasons and weekends. And on Saturdays, the Farmer’s Market is only one block away, bringing additional people to the neighborhood. That said, when closed, our dual paned windows throughout the house, eliminate much of the noise. The outdoor furniture is clearly vintage and in keeping with the overall esthetic of the cottage. Not sure what is meant by “cat problem”, so I’m unable to respond.
