Perfect for the artist's and couples!

Recently, one of our guest's stayed a month: "He said he loved the ever-changing beauty of the Dream Cottage peninsula! walking right outside to the beach and bay daily with his easel to paint the ever-changing scenery of the majestic bay!" At the end of the month; David had 9-stunning oil paintings! He and his wife were also photographers, and they were in heaven!

They did no want to leave.

This is the place for you to unplug and rejuvenate your soul!

On the tip of one of the most amazing and pristine peninsula’s in California, and the world! A magical place where you and your love can stroll by the bay’s quaint paths and relax on the sandy beaches on the mouth of Montana De Oro 8,000 acre preserve. This is where the Dream Cottage sits, nestled against the Questa Inlet in the middle of the Morro Bay Bird Sanctuary. 150-foot eucalyptus trees are looking down next to the Dream Cottage. The perfect blend of forest and the sea.

Wake up to the night Herons, beautiful Blue Herons, Owls, Amazing White Egrets, Red Tail Hawks, Doves, Finches and more, all singing their own songs. An amazing song that is in perfect harmony with nature, you can’t help but be filled with joy and peace. Enjoy your coffee sitting on the deck overlooking the beach and sparkling bay as the white and brown pelicans arrive and lounge on the water right in front of your eyes.

An explosion of your senses: quiet,

The catamarans, the colors of the kayaks, waiting to be swept away on the beautiful back bay of Morro Bay.

Welcome to the Dream Cottage!

Most of the proceeds from every guest staying at the Dream Cottage will be donated to Joanie Feustel for medical and living expenses.

Morro Bay Dream Cottage is in the middle of the Morro Bay's Bird Sanctuary on the back bay of Morro Bay with windy sandy beaches you can explore and meander for hours.

We have 2-single kayaks and one double that our guests can use to explore the bay. Walk 50 feet and you are in the bay and ready for an amazing experience. Kayak to the deserted beaches on the 'Sand Spit' across from the Dream Cottage, When you arrive you can climb to the top of the beautiful sand mountain and one side you can see for miles and miles of incredible Pacific Ocean and on the other side you can breathe in all of Morro Bay Estuary and the beautiful and famous Morro Rock...Breath out happiness, pure happiness!

Chris and Shelene believe 'life is really short and if we are able to do what we love together and help each other along the way, what a great life!

By the grace of God we were able to buy our dream cottages, and live on a half acre of land. Surrounded by water on 3 sides on a very special and unique pristine peninsula. The Dream cottage is in the southwest part of the property with its own deck, very private. Chris and Shelene live in the main house. Our mother lived in the cottage and we would not see her for several weeks at a time, so the privacy is yours to unplug and relax.

This is our ministry as a family.

We would love to share our cottage with couples who just need to relax and rejuvenate. Watching the sunset or moon rays, both reflect off the water in spectacular ways. This is the place for you to find peace. It feels like a quaint artist retreat on the south of France. Our goal is to rent the dream cottage month to month. Give us a call to find out the availability.

About Chris and Shelene and Family:

They also changed the law nationally because Shelene was not given a simple $25 Group B Strep (GBS) test at 35 weeks of pregnancy. The cure was $10 worth of penicillin at labor. They started the Jesse Cause Foundation - Saving the Babies from GBS, named after their son.

Chris and Shelene’s Goal: To get every pregnant woman in the United States tested for Group B Strep (GBS). Accomplished in 5 years on August 16, 2002, Canada and the European countries followed testing protocol. They are on a crusade to eradicate GBS.

Shelene was not tested for GBS at 35 weeks of pregnancy, and their son Jesse almost died at birth and spent 2 months in the hospital. Jesse had 4 needless brain surgeries. We are now supporting This is a very important cause, Please support them! T

Shelene Keith purchased this cottage in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed stayed at this amazing sanctuary! Sat on the deck, used the kayaks the Dream Cottage provides and went on walks right here on this amazing ppint and the sandy paths by the bay. We went to the majestic Montana De Oro State Park right here in the middle of paradise. Had wine on the deck and watched the herons fly by on the bay. You will be refreshed and rejuvenated when you leave. Chris and Shelene are our friends and we thank them for this amazing get away!

A slice of heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a slice of heaven come to the Dream Cottage and unplug! The yard is the point on this pristine bird sanctuary peninsula! The perfect place for us to come and see all of God's beauty is all here! The cottage is decorated perfectly/comfy/elegant/peaceful! We have stayed in cottages all over the country and this one tops them all! Surrounded by 7-breathtaking preserves! RELAX and ENJOY! Best time we have ever had! The wifi is great, I loved kayaking out the backyard and enjoyed the amazing sunsets. Thank you lil Dream Cottage :)

Morro Bay Dream Cottage a place to remember!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I made reservations to stay at this beautiful cottage. Our first impression was "wow" what a view. Not to mention that Keith and Shelene's open arms when we arrived. They are such beautiful people that it made our stay even more wonderful! The cottage was just perfect, very cozy, especially to unwind and hang out on the deck. My daughter and her friends went kayaking and had a blast! I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to unwind and relax. We will definitely be back very soon!

A Slice of Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a slice of heaven, look no further than the "Lil Morro Bay Dream Cottage!" I would've paid $500 a night for this amazing bay front experience! I did not have too; I think it averaged $133 a night over a 30 day period of pure breathtaking beauty!

The front yard is the whole point of this peninsula paradise. (the WIFI is fast, and great too!) This Dream Cottage allows you to sleep soundly like never before while listening to the bird sanctuary that it envelops right outside its heavenly windows! The noise of the world somehow disappears and we were able to rejuvenate our hearts again and see life more clearly!

The cottage is decorated perfectly, comfy, with an elegant retro chic. We have stayed in cottages all over, and this one tops them ALL!

Wake up and walk to the front yard which is the whole peninsula ...I would say 10 football fields of the beach, towering eucalyptus forest, sand, and surprising paths at every turn. Then we were able to sail-away across the bay daily to the Pacific Ocean, with the kayaks that were provided :)

This beautiful lil cottage is so romantic and surrounded by 7-beautiful preserves including the 8,000 acre "Montana De Oro" which it is nestled against!

Relax, Unplug, and Enjoy!

Oh, don't forget about the Farmers market in the next cove over!

We will return soon lil Dream Cottage!

Thank you for all you have given us!

A charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

Please note this is not a fancy place. There is no dishwasher or washer dryer. There is no bathtub. But there is a lovely town, beautiful hiking nearby, kayaks, and much wild life. The decorations in this cottage are fantastic! We made wonderful memories - fire with s'mores on the beach at night, whale watching, and long walks at the bird sanctuary. It was more than glamping and it was super sweet!

Like Living in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

For thirty days we were guests at the "Dream Cottage" in Los Osos, California where we painted and photographed the beauty of the natural surroundings. Located on the bay, we were blessed with beautiful weather and surrounded by wonderful people and great hosts. This was a unique experience we will never forget.

Owner's Response: We love having you both!! Can't wait to see you guys again! My fondest memories were of you David, running with your easel every morning to the bay and painting your stunning oils of our beautiful little peninsula 🐳?

Love, love loved this stunning, beautiful paradise where the birds dance on the bay in front of your eyes. Kayaking to the sand spit was like we had arrived on a deserted island of perfect beauty!

The beds so relaxing, the deck so relaxing, this amazing cottage in the trees overlooking Morro Bay...SO RELAXING!! You will LOVE this piece of Heaven!
