Charming & Historic Beach Cottage - Oasis in the Heart of Downtown

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


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.

Great cottage that is walkable to all in a quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful extended stay to explore Morro Bay and the central coast. The cottage was perfect and the fenced yard - while small - worked well for us and our dog. Cottage is nice and everything worked well and matched up to how it was advertised. The bedrooms don’t get super dark at night even when blinds are closed due to street lights so bring a sleep mask if you prefer a very dark room.

We could not possibly have had a better time at this property. We have traveled all over the world and have rarely seen a place with so many lovely, thoughtful touches. Binoculars to see all the birds, as well as birdwatching guides. A backgammon board. Finally! A place with enough washcloths! The beds had real linens on them, not the scratchy polyester we are used to in rental properties. The mattresses and pillows were comfortable. The kitchen was wonderfully appointed with coffee maker, pots and pans, teakettle, dishes, etc. There was even coffee, and tons of staples like olive oil, spices, etc. that helped us cook meals. (The fresh fish in Morro Bay is to die for!) You can tell they take great pride in thier property and it shows. Tip- There is a great natural foods place within walking distance if you are just looking for a few vegetables and things to supplement your dinner. The location could not have been better, and we mostly just left the car and walked and biked everywhere. Kelly gave us great recommendations for food and we almost took the tiki boat tour twice it was so much fun. Thank you, Kelly. You will see us again!!!

Delightful cottage in lovely Morro Bay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely rental with homey atmosphere with attentive renters Kelly & Bryan. Clean & comfortable with well stocked kitchen. A real plus for people interested in birding= feeder & water fountain attracting all sorts of birds who put on entertaining display most all the day long. The location is in the center of town only a couple of blocks from the water; health food store & bakery within walking distance. Certainly a place to come back to‼️

Cozy and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

We loved this cozy cottage. The location was great, but it is on the corner of two busy streets, so if you like to go to bed early or sleep late in the morning, this is probably not the property for you, especially during the busy season.

A beautiful place and a relaxing visit

  • 5 of 5

Kelly's cottage in Moro Bay is everything we hope it would be. It is cozy and comfortable and only a few blocks from the beach. Parking was easy and we were able to walk to the embacadero in only a few minutes. The kitchen is fully equipped and we could watch the well fed birds while doing the dishes. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Kelly.
