Car: Recommended

Easy driving to Hearst Castle, Morro bay Cayucos, Cambria and Wine Country. Whale watching in Morro Bay by boat. Guests have reported seeing them July 2011 off of Montana de Oro a State park, with miles of beaches and trails whose entrance is just one mile away. I have seen a double breech just 2 miles from shore ., July 2011 has seen blue whales and hump back whales in abundance just off shore.

Why the Owner Chose Los Osos, Baywood-Los Osos, CA, USA:
Unspoiled California as it once was. You are surrounded by natural beauty. Spectacular views--you can reach out and feel the estuary on all sides. This location is a one in a million.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As you drift off to sleep, often you will hear a dull roar. You would think it was the sound of the freeway--but it is the sound of the surf. We encourage you to soak in the natural beauty and wonder of this very special hideaway.
