Morro Bay house description

Gorgeous Ocean Views of ocean and 'The Rock!' Enjoy this popular and charming house in Morro Bay on the way to Hearst Castle. There are three bedrooms available, one has a wet bar, frig, TV. There are two shared bathrooms which were recently remodeled into beautiful spa bathrooms, with a jacuzzi tub, and rain shower which everyone loves! : ). House is full of art & antiques, so not best for small children.

FULL USE of fully-equipped kitchen, and pantry items. House sleeps 6-8 guests. Please see AMENITIES for other items regarding house.

This is a NO SMOKING house/yard. Thanks!

VIEWS: From the living room and dining room, and deck, there are outstanding views. Rooms 1 & 3 have partial views. Room 2 does not have an ocean view.

OUTDOOR SHOWER: There is an additional outdoor hot shower to rinse off after a day at the beach - or if you just like showering outdoors!

MORRO BAY: You will absolutely love Morro Bay! It is so inspiring to look at Morro Rock - the phenomental rock formation coming out of the ocean where sea meets sand. The endless blue ocean and expansive beach with surfers and an occasional horse are so impressive.

THE WHARF: The town of Morro Bay has a surprising wharf bustling with shops and outstanding and romantic restaurants - no chains, all original. The vibe of Morro Bay is fantastic.

OCEAN SPORTS: Kayaking, paddleboarding, surfing, whale-watching, fishing and bay boat tours are available. Or, just watch the dolphins swim with the surfers.

SITES: Nearby is Hearst Castle, Cambria, Cayucos, Harmony, Pismo Beach, Avila Beach and San Luis Obispo. The entire area has over 300 wineries and rolling hills of grape vineyards and views - just astounding. Home features brand new spa bathrooms with rain showers and jacuzzi bathtub. Magnificent views of Morro Rock and crashing ocean waves. One minute from beach, this house has an outside hot shower for your convenience. Huge dining room and living room for family gatherings.

This is a NO SMOKING HOUSE - both indoors, and in yard. Thanks!

Don't forget to take advantage of all of what Morro Bay and the surrounding communities have to offer you on the unforgettable 'Central Coast of California'!
This is a great neighborhood and very quiet. We had a great girls trip and found the kitchen to be well stocked with all pots/pans etc. Bathrooms are beautiful as was the purple room!
We could see the Pacific ocean from the upstairs main floor when it wasn't foggy even though the house is quite a distance from the beach.
Highly recommend this house.

We (two adults and four teenagers) spent three nights at Linda's 'beach house' in Morro Bay and had a wonderful time.
The house was beautifully decorated, very well equipped, super comfortable and very clean. The beds were very comfortable - we are extra picky about that generally so it was a very pleasant surprise that they were so good. The bathrooms were beautifully appointed and felt very luxurious. We cooked in the kitchen and on the BBQ with ease. We took the downstairs bedroom with the outdoor patio area and really enjoyed the peace and calm that came with sitting out there to drink our morning coffee.
Morro Bay is just lovely. Very relaxed. Beautiful beach, ocean and views. We got a lot of marine layer the days we were there but it felt nice compared to the heat we left in San Diego. We caught the sun even so - don't be fooled!
We went to San Simion/Hurst Castle, Cambria, and San Luis Obisbo. We rented bikes and spent a couple of hours riding along the ocean front in Morro Bay. I realized how much fun everyone had had when we handed the bikes back in and everyone was laughing, especially compared to all the whining when we went to pick them up!
We would love to come back and stay for longer.

The house was wonderful and exactly as described! We brought our 4.5 year old and our 18 month old daughters with us and it was a great set-up. Clean, organized, and a delightful weekend! Thank you Linda.

The house is great - very well equipped, very roomy and very clean. We stayed there for 3 nights: 2 families with 6 kids, altogether, and had a wonderful stay.
The kitchen had everything we needed and more. There were enough dishes, which is sometimes not the case.
Linda is a great host - the communication with her was easy and fast.

We were a group of six adults and stayed three nights in this lovely home. It is very spacious and inviting and we had everything we needed. The views of the ocean and Morro Bay rock from the living and dining area were spectacular and we were close to restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay here again.

Our family had a wonderful stay at Linda's home. The house was comfortable, extremely well-located and well-equipped (particularly the kitchen) to handle our crew of 4 adults and 4 kids. We really enjoyed the view from the main floor as well as the side deck. Most of all, Linda's thoughtfulness and graciousness--in the weeks leading up to our stay as well as during and after--set just the right tone for our visit, which was a reunion among East and West Coast cousins. We really appreciated all of the information she shared with us about her home (she laid out in an organized way everything we needed to know!) and about fun activities in and around Morro Bay, as well as the yummy treats she left to greet us. In short, nothing but the highest marks for Linda and her home.

Linda has a beautiful, cosy home... pretty garden, interesting artifacts in the house, fully equipped kitchen and lots of warm furniture and lights in the house... it's a perfect place for a family get together, where you want to go out during the day and hang out in the evening, cook a nice dinner and chat...
we had a fabulous time... thank you linda...

We had a wonderful time in Morro Bay and we enjoyed our mini family vacation in Linda's home. It was roomy enough and close to town & attractions. Conveniently located & well appointed.

Linda has a lovely home in Morro Bay. It is at the top of the hill with a beautiful view of Morro Rock from the dining room and the ocean from the living room. The home was beautifully decorated and Linda has a wonderful collection of antiques. The beds and sofa sectional are very comfortable.
We rented the entire house and also enjoyed full use of the kitchen. It was a great location to take day trips to different beach towns in the area. We also brought our bikes and enjoyed biking to Morro Bay. A wonderful family vacation!

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: Hi! After leaving the San Francisco Bay Area, I went in search of the perfect California Coastal town, and fell in love with Morro Bay! I love the spectacular views from my cute beach house, and quiet nights.

                  Why Morro Bay:
                  This house has a special warm feeling, and incredible views of the ocean with breaking waves, and the famous Rock.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The hot outdoor shower after a day at the beach is just great! So is hanging out at the outdoor dining table on the front deck. The newly remodelled bathrooms with jacuzzi tub and rain showers is like a day at the spa!
