Steps from the Sweet Springs Nature preserve. A few blocks away from Elfin Forest preserve. Montana De Oro is a must see just 2 miles away. Sweeping vistas of wild unspoiled rocky California Coast. Whale watching in Morro Bay by boat or off the coast from Montana De Oro, with miles of beaches and trails. July 2011 has seen blue whales and hump back whales in abundance just off shore. Bird watching in the winter is spectacular from the deck, or from Sweet Springs preserve just steps away.

About Kye Iris
I recently moved to Seattle to greener semi-retirement. I can still answer some of your questions, and will refer others to my daughter Kye who manages the property for me. Please call me if you have any questions and tell me how I can make your stay more enjoyable. She works 8-5, but will respond as quickly as she is able.
Kye Iris purchased this house in 1989
Why Kye Iris chose Baywood-Los Osos
Unspoiled California as it once was. You are surrounded by natural beauty. Spectacular views--you can reach out and feel the estuary on all sides. This location is a one in a million.
What makes this house unique
As you drift off to sleep, often you might hear a dull roar. You would think it was the sound of the freeway--but it is the sound of the surf. We encourage you to soak in the natural beauty and wonder of this very special hideaway. This special place is not a tourist destination. It is a well kept local hideaway that is not changing rapidly due to so many endangered species and environmentally sensitive restrictions on growth. We invite you to come and stay with us, understanding that this is a very quaint local community that treasures its residential way of life. We hope you can enjoy this rare and unique treasure on the California coast. It is not for everyone. Close your eyes and imagine what it was like to live in California circa 1962. Open your eyes and look out on this period in time and remember what it was like before everything became somewhat homogeneous and sterile. Enjoy it while you can.
