About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

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!

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!

GRANT OR JESSICA purchased this house in 2006

Why GRANT OR JESSICA chose Central Coast

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Charming, comfortable cottage!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently spent a long weekend at Gull Cottage. It was our first time renting a vacation home in Morro Bay and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Gull Cottage is easy to reserve and the owners are friendly and accommodating. The cottage is roomy with large couches and chairs, a full-size dining room table and well-equipped kitchen. We had a few family members stay with us and everyone was comfortable. We enjoyed the king-sized bed in the master bedroom and the roomy master bath as that is what we are accustomed to at home. There was a great fire pit and chairs in the backyard which we didn't have time to use but recommend this home if you BBQ or just want to relax and roast marshmallows. Gull Cottage is a 5 minute drive to the waterfront with its many restaurants and shops. There was plenty of parking and the neighborhood was quiet both during the day and at night. We will definitely rent this wonderful home again!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five plus 2 dogs had a fabulous stay at the Gull Cottage! The decor was beachy and cozy! We all had our own space, and enjoyed the common areas in comfort. The location in Morro Bay is perfect for whatever activities you plan in the area! We were close to the dog beach, went kayaking, took a day trip to Paso Robles for wine tasting, visited Hearst Castle, the sea elephants, and Cambria. The fire pit allowed us to "camp" out a bit in the evening, and the yard was perfect for the dogs to have some fresh air!

We would definitely stay again. Be aware that it is not "on the beach". You have to walk and cross the highway, or drive, but this wasn't an issue for us. Parking near the sand is easy, and free! :)

Owner's Response: Thank you! You were great guests. We are so glad you used the house to the full potential. Please come back again...and again. Our house is your house. We wish we were smack dab on the sand...but those run a tad more...We are .3 (That's Point 3) miles from door to shore. Great walk and fast drive. Hope to see you soon!!!

Great stay at the Gull Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay at the Gull Cottage in Morro Bay. The house is well equipped, comfortable, spacious and was perfect for our family of 4 and our dog We also found it very clean, welcoming and is close to the beach. Its location is also perfect for easy exploring of the Central coast area. It's within minutes of of Cayucus Beach, and a short drive to SLO, Pismo and our favorite Avila Beach. We would definitely go back there for another stay at the Gull Cottage.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Gull Cottage was amazing. My family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids - 11, 9 & 6) loved the location, decor, amenities and comfy furniture. The backyard fire pit and furniture were also a huge hit. Easy & short walk to the beach, Taco Temple (mmmmm!), Spencer's Market and quick drive to Cayucos, Morro Rock, Embarcadero, SLO, Cambria, etc. Even though it's a dog friendly place, we didn't see one strand of dog hair. The house was meticulously clean! We'd definitely recommend to others and hope to come back again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Cozy place to spend your weekend with your family and your dogs!!!!!

  • 4 of 5

Me and my friends stayed two nights at Cottages with our dogs.....First, Jessica has been very helpful and answered my email/questions right away. Second, it is a very cozy place to stay with your family and your dogs!!!!!!!!!!!! The house is few minutes away from Morro Bay beach and not too far to Pismo beach. This is the place I will go again. And We so sorry that we didn't lock the house properly that trigger security alarm.

Tried to give 4.5 stars but don't think VRBO can do that. There is minus due to the trash didn't get properly dispose when we arrived. Other than that, everything is perfect.

Owner's Response: This is the first review we have received under 5 stars ever! Please note that the guests are referring to the city trashcans outside not being emptied for them. Certainly not the ones inside of the house. We have an amazing cleaning crew that is detail oriented. There was a guest in the house the day before them. These guests arrived on the weekend and the trash truck pickup is not until Tuesday. Please also note that these guests did not follow any of the rules. We had to call them to return their contract agreement. They wrote us to ask how to get into the house (also noted on previously sent Rental Agreement) and they did not abide by any of the dog rules. They allowed their dogs to jump all over the furniture. Our crew charged us extra money to clean the massive amounts of hair left behind. When they left, we received an alert from our security that our door had been left unlocked. We traveled from Los Angeles during the week to make sure that our house was okay. We could not believe the amount of dog hair and dirt left by these guests and truly, we can count on 1 finger, the amount of guests that have been disrespectful. It is very sad that people would be completely negligent. And unfair to rate your stay based on trash pickup day!

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. Gull Cottage Rocks!
