The California Coast untouched by developers. Enjoy while it lasts--old Calif
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 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.

Nice stay in quiet bay
We liked the trails for walking and birding. The house has spacious bedrooms, well equipped kitchen. Even has filtered drinking water. We will return when we can . No view of ocean from the house but the patio is built up high enough to view Morro Rock ..That was pleasant!
Couldn't have been happier ...
Our family of three humans and two dogs loved everything about this rental. From the moment we stepped inside to the moment we left, we felt relaxed and happy. The space was very livable. There were some unexpected features that we appreciated - hand made soaps, green products, very soft towels. The location was great - lots of nice walks to choose from and a very quiet street. We arrived in sun and left in rain, but no matter the weather you will enjoy this space.
Beautiful, peaceful, perfect
We couldn't have asked for more, except for more days! The property was spotless and everything you could possibly want was available. We appreciated the little touches, the art work throughout the home, the attention to environmentally friendly soaps and paper products, the minimal "owner" notes and wonderful welcome binder that made us feel so at home. I wish we could have stayed longer to use the kayaks and do more hikes and bike rides from the property. I hope we get back here one day... Thank you!!
Comfortable home with feeling of spaciousness and light. Lots of welcoming touches, hand made soaps, tissues n every room, thorough information binder, well stocked kitchen. Great view of the rock from elevated outside deck and hot tub. Sylvester’s is the place to go for burgers and old-fashioned shakes. The Galley in Morro Bay for excellent fish dishes with other items on the menu, too. Would stay here again.
We enjoyed this comfortable home very much. Large, nicely appointed bedrooms, we had everything we needed. We enjoyed the hot tub and having coffee on the deck, watching the birds and the view of Morro Rock.
This property is located between San Luis Obispo and Cambria, right by Morro Bay. A great location to visit Avila, Cayucos, Pismo and Paso Robles
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.
