About Brian Mann

Brian and Leslie fell in love with Baywood Park 11 years ago, when they happened upon this wonderful hidden gem. Nestled on a little peninsula jutting out into the tidal estuary at the south end of Morro Bay. Surrounded by state parks and with the sound of waves crashing in the distance, this has been our most cherished refuge and source of peace. We are so glad we can share a bit of this special place with our guests.

Brian Mann purchased this Cottage in 2003

Why Brian Mann chose Los Osos

Close, easy stroll, to the little village downtown of Baywood Park, close to the Bay on both sides. A quiet street, with wonderful neighbors.

                                                                Great Time

                                                                Julia B.Redondo Beach, CA

                                                                We had a fabulous time, everything was perfect - the weather was just the right temperature for hiking around the area!

                                                                The property is exactly as the pictures show.

                                                                Mary W.minnesota

                                                                Overall it is a great place to stay. You have everything you need. Some pillows could be a little refreshed as could the futon. It is convienent to the surrounding area and an easy walk to restaurants at the bay ( not Morro Bay). We would come back!

                                                                Very sweet with lots of hotel amenities and more!

                                                                It rained our entire stay but we still had a great time. The Monday Farmers Market was a delight!

                                                                Quiet, private, comfy seaside retreat.

                                                                Rebecca H D.Helena,, MT

                                                                This is a perfect little cottage for an affordable seaside retreat just a hop, skip and a jump from the ocean. The location can’t be beat, as there are multiple spectacular scenic drives and comfortable hiking trails along the coast with access to beautiful, uncrowded, world class beaches.

                                                                The cottage itself affords great privacy and quiet, with a small but lovely private garden attached. There are garden areas for both dining and just relaxing in the shade or the sun. Many mornings we watched birds bathing in the birdbath just outside our door.

                                                                Inside, the kitchen is more than adequately equipped, although we mostly chose to have a simple breakfast, pack a lunch to go exploring and then find somewhere local to dine out for dinner. The king size bed was a welcome luxury, as many rentals only offer queens. The TV & internet worked great, allowing us to live stream Netflix in the evenings (with the help of our own laptop). The shower had good pressure for my husband’s showers and the claw foot tub was perfect for a warm soak for me. There is also a small seating area with a table for dining. We didn’t use the futon so can’t comment on it’s comfort for sleeping.

                                                                We had ready communication with the owners for any questions we had. All in all this was an unforgettable stay and we would love to someday return.

                                                                If you want to just kick back and relax, it's perfect, if you want to explore one of the most beautiful areas in the world, you have a perfect home base. Great restaurants within easy walk or drive. Fresh Ocean air. Friendly people everywhere you go. Small mountain town type atmosphere right on the Bay.
