Morro Bay house description

TAKE A VIDEO TOUR AND GET A FEELING (OR MANY!)Prices are listed below. From the moment you set foot in Gull Cottage you will relax (actually that starts when you get out of the car and smell the fresh sea air). Large white shabby-chic couches invite you to plop down, or go outside on the deck and sip on a glass of local wine.

Grab a bag and go pick up the treasures that the sea delivers daily. The beach is breathtaking...but the sunset makes you lean over and kiss your loved ones. The beach is a short walk away - 2 minute drive or 8 minute stroll.

Head down to the embarcadero (2 miles away) for some incredible seafood. We have got some great suggestions for you. Take a short drive to Cayucos or Cambria for a peek in the antique shops four stories high. Or take a tour of the Hearst Castle.

Come home and dream the night away. This is one sleep you will not forget. There is nothing to hear...imagine silence...

The house is so incredibly cute, clean and well-decorated...this will truly be one of the best vacations of your life and we're totally dog friendly with an enclosed yard for your furry friends to catch up on their rest as well!!! Please scroll down for the incredible rates. Summer reservations fill fast!

                              • Despite it's quaint size, Morro Bay is chock full of amazing attractions. It's an outdoor paradise with so much to see and do. Spend the morning hiking on some of the amazing carved trails. Head to the beach for a siesta in the afternoon. Grab a beer and fish tacos at a local's only little gem and sleep the night away.

                                Great little cottage in Morro Bay. The Beach is about a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive. Wonderful backyard, we BBQed every night. Excellent communication from the owners, clear directions and explanations. Great experience.

                                We visited Gull Cottage over Thanksgiving 2013 and had a wonderful time - the house has everything you could possibly need, including tons of crayons, stuffed animals and toys for our active 2 year old to play with. Went with my husband, daughter, mom and small dog and had a very relaxing time. Would definitely recommend Gull Cottage to absolutely anyone! Very quiet neighborhood near some spectacular beaches and 'dog friendly' beach areas, too. Owners were super gracious and helpful with all of our questions. Morro Bay is also a really cute, mellow little destination. We avoided holiday stress entirely and hope to go back soon!

                                A really charming cottage on the central coast, close to beach, Morro Bay, Cayucos, Cambria, SLO and all points of interest. The cabin was perfect for our family with separate bedrooms for grown ups and a great alcove for kids. We had great, great weather with warm and sunny days and Gull Cottage gets a great breeze from the nearby beaches which kept everyone nice and cool (especially welcome since it's been so hot lately!) The cottage is well-equipped, clean and has lots of nice beachy touches (the wife and mother-in-law found it especially nice!). We brought our dogs and that made the trip even more fun. The owners are attentive and well organized and could not have been nicer. Lots of fun activities to do - we kayaked on Morro Bay and hiked with the dogs in the parks and on the beaches. But here's the best part - Morro Bay may be one of the most relaxing places in California, Everything and everyone is taking it slow and enjoying the ride. Great cottage and laid back beach town equals about the most relaxing vacation ever!

                                We found a charm! Gull Cottage was so relaxing and family friendly. When we opened the front door we were greeted by the whimsical decor (It has changed since the photos on this site have been taken). The fun colors and eclectic decor make you want to explore the property. I described it to my mom as living in a storybook like Alice in Wonderland. The home is clean (this is so important to me. According to my husband I never approve) and each room is comfortable. The backyard is a lovely little place to sit and enjoy the air. We seemed to find something new each day. The sweet little child's nook under the stairs, the amazing master shower, the heart shaped rock collection and the list goes on... All these little touches made our families stay amazing. Thank you so much for letting us share your wonderful home. We will be back for sure!

                                We had a wonderful time in Morro Bay and our stay at Gull Cottage couldn't have been better. Its so homey and welcoming with shabby chic/beach decor. Gull Cottage has every amenity. We love the awesome big comfy bed with a view of the trees and gorgeous light in the morning. Although we ate out for most meals, we did make breakfast on our last morning in your well stocked kitchen. Gull cottage is really a home away from home. We cannot wait to return.

                                This was a beautiful and serene beach home perfectly located across the highway from the ocean. We were a group of 6 adults, which worked great in the clean, open space and the beds were all cozy and comfortable for us all. We made home-cooked meals in the amazingly equipped kitchen and took full advantage of the large dining table. We were able to bring bikes, ride them to the beach and lock them safely in the closed-in back yard area. The cottage is adorably decorated and feels like a home away from home. The perfect beach getaway!

                                Some friends and I spent the weekend there and can't wait to go back this fall. The house is gorgeous! Well decorated with everything we needed including super cozy beds. We needed the beds because we wore ourselves out running around Morrow Bay. So much to do. Shopping, beach, the rock, look at some otters, fly some kites, eat great food, go for a bike ride. I'm tired just thinking about it. And the beds. Wow the beds!!! Also, did not break the bank at all which lead to more shopping.

                                I've stayed at Gull Cottage twice now, both times on a weekend away with friends, and each stay has been amazing! The beds are comfy, the decor is cozy and homey, and it has an adorable little back yard with a deck. By the time your trip is over, you'll want to move in and stay forever. The house is close enough to the beach for an easy bike ride or walk, and getting into town only takes a few minutes. On our first night there, we rode our bikes out to the beach to watch the gorgeous sunset and then rode back and cooked a delicious meal in the fabulous kitchen, which had all of the supplies we needed and then some. After a full day of hiking, beaching, or just walking around town, this house is a wonderful place to come back to. It's warm and inviting and on a quiet street with friendly neighbors. Make sure to check out the rolling, green hills just to the west when you wake up in the morning; they're a sight to behold! I couldn't recommend Gull Cottage highly enough. Do yourself a favor and book your trip here as soon as possible. You won't regret it!

                                Gull Cottage was absolutely beautiful! It had a very homely feel with shabby chic decor everywhere. I visited with a small group of friends and had a lovely time! We all keep saying "when can we go back to Gull Cottage!?"

                                I was looking for a quiet retreat for a week and I found it here. The house was clean and furnished with every amenity. After a couple of days the house felt like my own. A couple of friends stopped by at different times and we loved the back deck and cycling around the coast. Morro Bay has remained a quiet beach side town. This house is centrally located in Morro Bay and close to several beaches. Grant and Jessica take pride in owning this house. It's not your typical full-time rental property. The house is setup for a family more than multiple couples.

                                Owner response: Jeff and Family/Friends! Thank you for your lovely review. We are completely devoted to our guests having the kind of time you guys did! We are always looking for ways to make it even better. This weekend, going to look for some new guest bikes.... We thank you. Please come back soon! Grant and Jes

                              About the owner: Hi! We're Grant and Jessica George, proud owners of Gull Cottage - Morro Bay, Ca. We work in the tv/film industry in Los Angeles as Voice Over talent for different movies, tv shows, radio, cartoons and corporations. Jessica also works as a Marriage and Family Therapist. We began traveling to the Central Coast to go on creativity weekends, where we would write, develop and create some well-known and wonderful projects. We found Gull Cottage within a day and knew it was a perfect place for us to relax and grow our family. It's a magical place and has provided moments, hours and days of bliss for family, friends and our vacationers!

                              Why the Owner Chose Morro Bay:
                              The Central Coast is a magical place. It's peaceful and the nature that abounds is gorgeous. We chose our home Gull Cottage - Morro Bay for a place to relax and get away from the hub-bub of Los Angeles. The location is a perfect distance to the beach and to Del Mar park (perfect for our kids and dogs). We have also become avid Kayakers. We spent the first year there providing a retreat to family and friends and eventually opened it to wonderful vacationers from all over the world.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              We always know that relaxation is our first priority and boy do we get it. From long walks on the beach with our sons and dogs, to long naps in the garden, to the incredible and on-going events in and around San Luis Obispo county...Gull Cottage - Morro Bay is the perfect place to unwind and get away. There's something to do every weekend! Check it out on the San Luis Calendar online and see for yourself. If it's just tuning out work and general busy schedules, you'll be forced to do it here. The sound of the waves and the beauty are much more powerful that that.
