The California Coast untouched by developers. Enjoy while it lasts--old Calif
About Kye Iris
I recently moved to Seattle to greener semi-retirement. I can still answer some of your questions, and will refer others to my daughter Kye who manages the property for me. Please call me if you have any questions and tell me how I can make your stay more enjoyable. She works 8-5, but will respond as quickly as she is able.
Kye Iris purchased this House in 1989
Why Kye Iris chose Los Osos
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.
What makes this House unique
As you drift off to sleep, often you might 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. This special place is not a tourist destination. It is a well kept local hideaway that is not changing rapidly due to so many endangered species and environmentally sensitive restrictions on growth. We invite you to come and stay with us, understanding that this is a very quaint local community that treasures its residential way of life. We hope you can enjoy this rare and unique treasure on the California coast. It is not for everyone. Close your eyes and imagine what it was like to live in California circa 1962. Open your eyes and look out on this period in time and remember what it was like before everything became somewhat homogeneous and sterile. Enjoy it while you can.

Peaceful, beautiful views
The property was exactly what my sister and I were hoping for. A quiet, peaceful get away. Location is perfect, view from patio was worth the trip!!
Check in couldn't have been easier.
If you haven't visited Los Osos you might be surprised. Very small community but everyone we met was friendly and helpful. Great meals Mexican and Italian on 9th street were delicious.
The estuary was just outside our door, not too exciting this time of year but a nice walk. Seems most of the birds come in the winter.
The house itself is older but very nice. Huge bedrooms, nice kitchen and living room. We probably spent most of our time in back yard and patio.
Didn't give 5 stars on cleanliness only because the grout in both bathroom needs to be replaced😶. Everything else was clean and nice.
Beauty by the bay
What a pleasant place!! The peace!! ...birds and the wind...the place was clean and well appointed having everything you need!! Very homie! Thank you for letting us share your spot!!
The home was clean, well stocked and so convenient. Being near the bay just steps away was perfect. The fence was awesome for me so I didn't have to worry about the doggos while we relaxed on the deck! 100% recommend :)
Beautiful time at the beach
Always love staying here!
This was a wonderful place to spend Easter!
We loved being right next door to the preserve. The house had all the amenities we needed. We loved the back yard view to the Morro Rock.
Perfect for us!
This house was just as advertised on website. For an older beach town home my family really enjoyed all that it had to offer. To the North & South of this home we discovered so many things to do. Really appreciated that the home is fully stocked with cooking utensils, cleaning supplies, paper towels, shampo, nice fully towels and cozy blankets. Oh and the handmade soaps were so sweet. Note, that if you are allergic to dogs you may experience a reaction so be prepared. Lovely!
Steps from the Sweet Springs Nature preserve. A few blocks away from Elfin Forest preserve. Montana De Oro is a must see just 2 miles away. Sweeping vistas of wild unspoiled rocky California Coast. Whale watching in Morro Bay by boat or off the coast from Montana De Oro, with miles of beaches and trails. July 2011 has seen blue whales and hump back whales in abundance just off shore. Bird watching in the winter is spectacular from the deck, or from Sweet Springs preserve just steps away.
