About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 6

Enjoy a relaxing, carefree vacation. Our newly remodeled two-story home features a spacious great room, which includes a chef’s kitchen, dining area and living room. The living room is furnished with a 6 foot couch and a 42 inch LCD TV with a Blu-Ray player. Hardwood floors and multiple, expansive windows embellish the sense of space in the great room.

The kitchen has been upgraded with granite counter tops, Bosch dishwasher, new stove/cooktop, refurbished cabinets, and a new kitchen island. The highlight of the great room is an attached sunroom/patio, which has great views of Morro Strand, the water, Morro Rock over the rooftops, and the famous Morro Bay sunsets. This is a perfect place to sit back and enjoy the evening.

There are two bedrooms, plus a bonus room which doubles as a third bedroom. There is a king size bed in the master bedroom and a queen size bed in the 2nd bedroom. In addition, there is a daybed + trundle bed in the bonus room. The downstairs Master bedroom is very spacious.

Photographs of local attractions (Montana de Oro, Morro Strand, Morro Bay State Park, Paso Robles Wineries, Cayucos, the Tolosa Mission, and Harmony) decorate the walls, and provide ideas for places to visit. The beach is about a 10 minute walk, and there are several restaurants within walking distance of the house (Surfside Pizza, Lolo’s, and Taco Temple). There is also a wonderful dog park within walking distance.

Our house includes two single car garages, one is available to guests. There is also additional off-street parking if you have two vehicles. A washer and dryer are available for use, and located in the garage. There is also a wrap-around, fenced yard, which offers privacy and security.

We have included all of our favorite amenities in the house, including coffee makers, Chef’s knives, WIFI, Weber kettle style Bar-B-Q, gas grill. Try several different styles of coffee in the Keurig coffee maker. The house is the perfect launch point for adventures in the wine country, great beaches, and local points of interest, including Hearst Castle, Monterey, Montana de Oro, and the Morro Bay Embarcadero.

Why Stephanie Arakaki chose Morro Bay

We purchased this property because we have vacationed here for almost 50 years. The house was wonderfully located, with panoramic views from the upstairs. We've upgraded and renovated the interior so that we would feel at home here. We hope you will as well.

It’s perfect, we love the sunroom. It’s a very comfortable house and we always feel at home there.

Has a beautiful view, very well kept up. The owners are so nice and easy to work with. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Morro Bay.

I cannot fully express my enjoyment of the house. When I first walked in, I found a sense of welcome and enjoyment. The view in the small room was, for me, a place to relax, look out to see the ocean, read, and just think. The area was quiet. I hope to be able to come back next year.

comfortable like home

What a great home, close enough to Morro, SLO, Hearst, etc, and in a quiet, family neighborhood. The rooms were comfortable, the kitchen was well-equipped for cooking at home and the view of Morro Rock and the sunset was excellent.

Quiet, clean polished gem in Morro Bay- with a view- a great little "hide away"

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, stayed in this well appointed house, for a few days with a friend. The house is set away from the main road, but still handy for visiting the beach, hiking at the State park, shopping at town and going to the Hearst Castle (we even saw some of the zebras).

The house is beautifully decorated with breathtaking photographs and the occasional doggie touch. We didn't bring our dog, and the house didn't have any dog odors. It is a very clean place.

The layout of the house made it so our friend didn't have to hear our boys having a light sabre battle- it has a sense of privacy- inside and out. The five of us stayed here and it didn't seem crowded.

The sun room was very cozy and sweet, and it is hard to leave- you feel so comfortable that you feel at home.

There are many small, thoughtful extras....small blankets on the couch, games in the closet, beach shovels, band-aids. When I needed something, it was there- syran wrap, a spice, this and that. It was so handy to be able to do laundry and make our own meals.

One of the thoughtful little touches was the great communication, including a little booklet that answers all of your questions- nearby restaurants, sights, how to get the internet working etc.

You really feel like you are welcome and at home.
