About Shelene Keith
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 Morro Bay Dream Cottage is on a half acre of land, nestled against 11-acres of pristine beauty adjacent to one of the most beautiful state parks in the country... The 8,000 acre Stunning Montana De Oro State Park. Surrounded by water on 3 sides on a very special and unique pristine peninsula! This stunning little cottage with a 270 degree panoramic view of our very own peninsula!

The sunsets & moon rays both reflect off the water in spectacular ways. This is the place for you to find peace and to heal! It has been compared to a bay front cottage retreat on the south of France, Cape Cod, or any stunning cottage around the world! Give us a call and let's chat about your dreams... About Chris and Shelene and Family: Their son Jesse had 4-needless brain surgeries that inspired this family to change the law nationally! 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

Didn't want to leave!
I rented this cottage for a few nights for my bestie's Birthday and to have a break from the big city. The pictures very accurately depicted the property...absolutely gorgeous and otherworldy! The best part to me is that you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, super quiet and peaceful, but everything you would need is just a very short drive away. An EXCELLENT location for so many varied experiences.
The property owner was so sweet and helpful. She suggested a lot of options and we enjoyed every one that we tried. We had some food and drinks at Giovanni's in Morro Bay, saw some sea otters, went out to check out Morro Rock. Then took a day trip to Hearst Castle, stopping in the adorable town of Cambria and seeing a BUNCH of basking elephant seals on the way back.
The property itself is very quirky, and may not suit everyone, but it was great for us. I slept upstairs in the loft bed, which was a temperpedic and I loved it so much that I will likely get one the next time I need a bed. My bestie slept downstairs on the sleeper couch, which also seemed to be comfy.
The only two things that kind of surprised us was that the bathroom door was made of cloth, not an actual door. We were nervous about it at first, but it was never an issue. If one of us needed privacy, the other would just hang downstairs or out on the patio.
The other thing was that from the pictures, I thought the fireplace was a tv, but there wasn't one. I really didn't care at all but my friend had quite the reaction. I solved that issue easily though, setting her up to watch Hulu on my laptop or ipad.
My favorite things about this place: The amazing landscaping...using the grand oak trees as the decor, being right on the water, having my little doggy with me and seeing him enjoy walking around and running along the little beach, all the views of the area, the quiet, the AMAZING stars at night, the super sweet owners, the comfy bed, everything being stocked including some waters, coffee, and bananas, the decor of the cute cottage.
We will likely return to this exact cottage again. Three nights and just two fulls days was not nearly enough time. Thank you Shalene for sharing your amazing property with us!
A little slice of heaven!
Absolutely great time! We enjoyed another great vacation here. The property is surrounded by beauty. We love walking along the bay, kayaking and enjoying the weather. The cottage is comfortable inside, bed is comfortable and we love the deck. We are already looking forward to our next visit to paradise.
Thank you for your kind words!
Always wonderful sharing our little cottage on this majestic bay! See you soon!
God bless your family 😇🙏
Our little family soaked up this beloved space with glee! It really is as beautiful as advertised. The kids (4 and 6) adored the tire swing, porch swing, playhouse (aaadorable), tree- climbing, and general adventuring. The birds and scenery were gorgeous. The tiny guest cottage itself is very cozy, not luxurious by any stretch, but quaint, thoughtfully arranged, and worked for us! Shelene and Chris were more than hospitable, we really appreciated them. Such a great area and a lovely weekend.
Thank you so much for relaxing in our little cottage. Daisy misses your kids! Blessings to your beautiful family!
We had the most amazing stay at the dream cottage, my husband and I and little doggie. The cottage has beautiful views from the windows that wrap around it. We had some rainy weather a couple of the days but we enjoyed them from our cozy place with the electric fireplace. We enjoyed trying all the eateries and secret spots recommended by Shelene. Each day of our week long stay was a new adventure. We saw mother and baby otters at the Embarcadero, found a perfect beach for us and our pup at William Hearst beach, shopping in Paso Robles for antiques, and enjoyed taking walks in the evening around the tidelands surrounding the cottage. Shelene was a delightful and kind host ! We enjoyed every aspect of our time there!
The smiles on your faces said it all! This is what the Dream cottage is all about... leaving the noise into our quiet surroundings, so you can see the Beauty that is all around... While you explore our stunning bay and beaches and hear the songs of the bird preserve! Can’t wait till you return ⚓️ Blessings 🤗

Morro Bay Rock is famous worldwide. You can see from the bay front. The Dream Cottage is surrounded by Morro Bay on 3-sides in the middle of the back bay Morro Bay estuary and bird preserve sanctuary.
We are blessed to always get the last of the spectacular Morro Bay sunsets!
The Morro Bay Dream Cottage sits on the mouth of the pristine 8,000 acres Montana De Oro State park. San Simeon Elephant seals, Hearst castle, are very close. Cambria same feel as Carmel but more secluded. Pismo Beach is 20 minutes south. Morro Bay is beautiful, discover Morro Bay while staying at the Dream Cottage on Morro Bay!
