You will enjoy this perfect escape in our totally updated coastal cottage. Nestled in the quiet, historic Morro Heights you can escape from the hustle bustle of city life. You’ll hear very little traffic or neighborhood noise because you are tucked away behind our main house in the secluded setting of Morro Heights. The drought tolerant yard offers ample seating for your early morning coffee, Happy Hour and an evening BBQ. Fresh herbs & veggies are planted near the walkways to add to your meals.
Inside you’ll quickly see the fresh and totally updated home. It is so incredibly cute, clean and well-decorated in shabby-chic/coastal décor. Both bedrooms are comfortable and cozy. Master has a Queen bed and 2nd bedroom has a double. Huge closets in each to store clothes and gear. The comfy living room is inviting to kick back in, open up the windows and feel the breeze. There’s a nice shower/tub with great water pressure. We offer high speed internet, cable TV, plenty of books and games if you choose to stay in. The fully equipped new kitchen has granite counters and stainless appliances.
You can pretty much take off on foot anytime day or evenings from 'The Cottage'. We are on the ‘water’ side of Hwy 1, so easy access to all. Groceries, library, downtown, Farmers Market, Top Dog Coffee are all just a few blocks. Get your retail therapy taken care of too!
Daytime, enjoy surfing, boogie boarding or surfing North of the Rock, taking Paddle Board lessons in the bay, watching marine life and don’t miss the otters! When you’re finished head up to our favorite spot, Dockside Too, on the fishing docks for all types of fish, wine or beer and live music every day.
Evenings, stroll 7 blocks to the Embarcadero for Happy Hour fish tacos at Dutchman's, or take a dinner cruise.

Check out the new pedestrian bike bridge that will take you to the North end of Morro Bay or head on out to Morro Rock for a great morning walk. We offer plenty of space for your bikes, surfboards and gear plus a hot outdoor shower to rinse off the sand.
When it’s time to turn in, leave your windows open and listen to the surf and foghorns – can’t beat that!
The Unique History of this Cottage:
Regardless if you are either a military history buff or a 60's and 70's Rock and Roller you will enjoy the rich history of this quaint 800 sq ft Cottage. Morro Bay was once the site of naval training, in part for the D-Day invasion. Imagine the conversations between officers as they readied for battle in this historical WW II officers' barracks that was later converted to a home for one of Morro Bay's oldest business couples and their family.
Now fast forward to the mid 60's. Two sons raised in this cottage were very active in the Rock and roll scene. Members of Spanky and Our Gang, the Turtles, the Byrds, and more spent time here as they gigged their way between Los Angeles and San Francisco. If the walls could sing you would hear them swapping songs and working on future hits.
