About Kit Kolb
Our parents bought this home on the waterfront in Morro Bay in the 1950’s. We renovated the home in 2015. It is just a great place to relax and enjoy the views. We love coming up on weekends and holidays to ride bikes, paddle board, hike, and eat at our favorite restaurants.
Kit Kolb purchased this House in 1955

Awesome, spacious home with great views and location
Six adults stayed here for 3 days in September and found the home to be very comfortable. The kitchen was incredibly well stocked. The lay out of the home is a delight - lots of open space. The bedrooms are spacious. The water is right outside the door and we were treated to seals and an amazing otter send off. Downtown is within walking distance and it was a great location to take advantage of biking and paddling. The Wifi is a little slow - we used the address/ password on the box on the upstairs TV because the address/ password listed on our welcome info didn't work.
One thing to know up front: The home is listed as dog friendly, but dogs are not allowed upstairs and all the bedrooms are all upstairs. If you're a dog owner whose spoiled dog is accustom to sleeping in her crate in your room, this may present a challenge at bedtime. Fortunately, husband says the downstairs couch is very comfortable. Also, there's also no way to block the stairs to keep the dogs downstairs but I highly recommend stacking the poufs from the living room in the doorway!
Dear Stacey and family,
So happy to hear that you enjoyed the home and its location directly on the waterfront. We also love to walk to the embarcadero, the shops, golf course, and restaurants. Our teenagers ride their bikes to the movie theatre and think it is funny that only one movie plays at a time. Small town, small movie theatre!
Yes, we request that everyone keep their pooches downstairs with the hardwood floors. Upstairs is carpeted and we need to keep it clean and smelling great for our none animal families, as well. But, I am sure that the canines will enjoy the views while they slumber off downstairs.
Hope to see you in the near future.

Water Front Paradise
This water front house was amazing. First, the location is absolutely prime. You are literally on the water front to the bay. We woke up to sea otters playing in the water right outside the bedroom window each morning, who could ask for more. This is also the last house down a long driveway. The location is very quiet and secluded and away from the street. You feel alone and it is very relaxing.
The house itself was in great condition. The kitchen and showers have been renovated recently and were very modern and functional. The living room and bedrooms have walls of windows and you feel like your outside. It makes the water front location even better. You won't want to get out of bed in the master bedroom in the morning.... The house is about 3 minutes from the main street shops of Morro Bay, and only about 20 minutes from the shopping in SLO.
The owner Kit was easy to deal with and everything was as advertised. They did not bother us at all, but responded quickly to any questions. I will be coming back to this one!!
Loved the house and location. It's close to town, the beach and golf course.
The views of the harbor are amazing!!! Our family loved it! We'll be back.
Wonderful little gem right on the bay!
What a little gem of a place! The pictures don't really do the view justice. Built in the 1940's this place is just oozing with charm! Little details make this place feel like you are being transported back in time, while the updated appliances, flat-screens, and wi-fi bring you back to today. We stayed for 5 nights and hated to leave! Both bathrooms have been updated with large showers complete with rainwater shower heads. Flatscreens with cable are everywhere they are needed. The beds were so comfortable it was hard to crawl out of them each morning however the view and the sounds of the bay make that issue short-lived.
Although it is walking distance to the Embarcadero, with our group we opted to drive down. (Some bad knees in our group) Lots of great food is nearby as well, as plenty of shops if that's your thing.
Overall, we really enjoyed the peacefullness of Sole Mate. Once we settled in, it was hard to motivate leaving. We found ourselves wanting to cook instead of eating out. Speaking of which, we really enjoyed the gourmet kitchen. All new appliances include two ovens, dishwasher, double door fridge and 4 burner gas cooktop. Filtered water was also a plus so we didn't have to rely on bottled water for the whole trip.
Usually I leave a place with a laundry list of suggestions, this time only a couple of minor suggestions for the owners. They've done a great job with this place and we look forward to coming back for years to come!
Really great best view and house will come back many times
I rented SoleMate for my family of four plus my parents for this past Memorial Day weekend. This home was perfect for the six of us. Grandpa was able to tow his fishing boat and park it literally on the other side of the fence, which is where the parking lot and boat launch are located. Parking is only $5.00 a night. We fished for two days and caught plenty! There is a cleaning station conveniently located near the launch, so we were able to clean our fish immediately and with ease.
We also brought our mountain bikes and had a beautiful ride along the golf course near the water. In the opposite direction is downtown, and dinner was at a restaurant with a window seat so we could look at the bay.
The town of Morro Bay is quaint and charming and uncrowded. I grew up on the beaches of Pismo, Avila and Shell, and I prefer Morro Bay much, much more!
Regarding the house, three out of the four bedrooms have water views, and the view from the master upstairs is spectacular! The living room also has a water view. There is plenty of room to move around in the house, and with six people it never felt crowded. This is an old home, but she has good bones, and for her age everything looks great. Our family is well-traveled, and my kids are tough critics, but they LOVED SoleMate! It's mostly the feeling you have when you're in the house. It's one of tranquility.
Since this house is located at the very end of the street and on the water, nothing will obstruct your view of the bay, and you will see no one around you when you're at the house. It is perfectly quiet other than what's happening on the bay. And there's plenty to see just glancing out the window: birds, sea otter, boats, people having fun (but at a distance).
The only issue with the home was the squeaky hinges on every door upstairs. Every time someone opened or closed a door, we'd hear the squeaks all the way downstairs. The squeaks also woke us up in the middle of the night if someone used the bathroom. I wrote to Kit, the owner, and she will address this issue immediately. Quick fix with WD40!
It also would be nice if the fireplace was gas burning so there could be some ambience in the living room when the fog rolls in.
Other than that, if you're looking for tranquility in a beautiful home in a perfectly centralized location, SoleMate is the place. We plan to stay again in the near future!
The Mirabito Family
The location of our beachhouse is very unique. Only a few homes in Morro Bay are located on the Bayfront. Therefore, all ocean activities are super accessible. Rentals of kayaks, SUP's, canoes, and numerous Bay activities are within a 5-10 minute walk. Morro Bay has the most gorgeous Golf Course on the entire Central Coast......it is a 3 minute walk.
The Inn at Morro Bay is a two minute walk and really great for a cocktail as the sun is setting. The Morro Bay Museum is a 10-12 minute walk along the waterfront.
