Escape the fast-paced world in the Green Cottage on Morro Bay, a very private Cottage. The Cottage is quiet, cozy and sits next to the water on Morro Bay, California. It is a peaceful and romantic guest hideaway for lovers … lovers of nature, art, thought, books, wine, adventure, discovery, solitude and soul, but especially for those who love and love to nurture themselves. There are no jangling phones, fax machines, blaring TVs, traffic sounds or other intrusions on your retreat.

The Cottage says:

“I have a tale to tell, my very own…won’t you come inside awhile and help me sing my song? I may be just a small beach cottage, but step into my entry and you’ll be welcomed by an eclectic mixture of art and antiques collected by my family over the years and lovingly displayed to create a romantic and intimate environment to inspire you during your stay.'

'I sit on a bird sanctuary on the rural Central Coast of California, where I enjoy unobstructed 280 degree views of the Bay and mountains.

'I offer you the opportunity to immerse yourself in nature, in romance, here in 'the middle kingdom' as National Geographic once called my region of California. I am your natural escape, your refuge and your home base for exploring all that is around me and all that is within you.

'Come and stay a spell with me. Read one of my intriguing books filled with short stories or watch one of my many DVDs. Make tea or cook a gourmet meal in my fully equipped kitchen to enjoy by candlelight or under the stars on my kitchen’s deck. Snuggle into my sea foam green king-size bed.

'Curl up with a good book in my corner reading chair, peruse original art on my walls, and discover my handmade baskets and carvings from South America, the South Seas, and local Native Americans. Enjoy a glass of award-winning Central Coast wine as you sit quietly on my deck and watch the pelicans, herons, snowy plovers and peregrine falcons while the sun slips silently into the horizon.

'I have seen and heard many things in my three score and ten years. Like all places where people dwell, there is a spirit here that has been shaped by the personalities, conversations, and temperament of those who have spent time here. I have been occupied by travelers, adventurers, writers, painters, photographers, romantics and naturalists…and by my owners’ four generations of artists and lovers of life. Their presence lingers in the air and invites you to both partake and contribute your own essence to my evolving character.' --- The Green Cottage on Morro Bay

About Pandora Nash-Karner

The Cottage has been in our family for two generations. We have lived on the bay for over three decades and love it, and love to share it with others. The Cottage was originally built to shelter the duck hunters and fishermen who were attracted here, but it was soon bought in the 1950's by our parents and was used as a residence while they built their dream home next door. The Cottage has been our family's guesthouse since then and we've just made it available as a vacation rental. The charm as a family retreat has been retained through the complete refurbishing received in 2009. We have designed the Cottage to provide our guests with the perfect opportunity to immerse themselves in the Central Coast experience. We are not the Best Western -- just the opposite. What our guests won't find here are ringing phones, blaring TV or fax machines -- all by design, although we do provide wireless internet service and a 38' HDTV for watching DVDs, plus over 300 DVDs to choose from. We want the cottage to provide guests with the ability to ESCAPE the fast-paced world. We've tried to provide everything we can think of to make our guests feel pampered and comfortable.

Pandora Nash-Karner purchased this cottage in 1950

Why Pandora Nash-Karner chose Los Osos

This has been a private guest house for our family for over 6 decades. When it is not used by the family, it is available for visitors.

What makes this cottage unique

The bay is part of the National Estuary Program, as well as a designated bird sanctuary. There are many places nearby to view birds, including a private dock. Morro Bay is an important stopover on the Pacific Flyway and winter home to numerous bird species. The north coast area of San Luis Obispo County is a haven for artists, wine and food aficionados, water sports enthusiasts, antique collectors, hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians, and people who appreciate quiet, undiscovered get-away locations. When the lure of open spaces calls you, follow winding country roads to award-winning vineyards for wine tasting, or to grassy hilltops for a picnic overlooking the Pacific. Beautiful Hearst Castle is just 35-minutes away, and beyond that is the splendor of the Big Sur coastline.

San Luis Obispo's initials -- SLO -- precisely describes the speed a visitor should use in examining the area's treasures and pleasures. Go to fast and you'll miss of the off-the beaten path venues hidden back in the hills and canyons like the Pozo Saloon, See Canyon apple farms, Tibor Canyon organic olive oil Ranch or the charming town of Harmony, with a population of 15.

Wanted to Stay Longer!

  • 5 of 5
Of the many places we’ve had the good fortune to stay, this was one of our favorites. The cottage is in a wonderful location, on the water, at the south end of Morro Bay.

The cottage immediately felt like home to us. It is well decorated with an eclectic mix of styles, items and books. The bed is very comfortable, there is a living room area with a large collection of DVDs and there is a kitchen and dining area that opens to the deck.

It was hard to leave the deck with the beautiful sunrises, variety of birds and beautiful sunsets, all with Morro Rock the distance. We had excellent weather, so we spent a lot of time here eating or taking in the view. The location right on the water is very peaceful and the cottage is positioned to give you lots of privacy.

While hard to leave, the cottage is an excellent base for the great things to do on the Central Coast. We enjoyed hiking in nearby Montana de Oro, but in addition to the nearby town of Morro Bay, you are within striking distance of the wine country and even Hearst Castle.

Our hosts, Pandora and Gary, were friendly and helpful, while respecting our privacy and not being intrusive. Pandora is an artist and former graphic designer, and her good taste and sharp eye show in the way the cottage is decorated.

We’ll definitely be back and will definitely stay longer!

A slice of heaven on Morro Bay

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I planned a weekend trip to San Luis Obispo to visit our daughter who is attending Cal Poly. We booked a two-night stay at the Green Cottage, and we absolutely fell in love with this charming place. It's situated in a quiet, secluded bay-front setting with amazing views and all the creature comforts one could desire. The interior of the Cottage is beautifully appointed with thoughtful, artful details. It's the perfect setting for those seeking relaxation, escape, and rejuvenation. Plus it's close to local beaches, hiking, and a 20 minute drive to downtown SLO. We will most certainly return!!

Owner's Response: Cal Poly kept this couple so busy, we weren't sure they'd have time to enjoy the Cottage. Their daughter is a new freshman and the school's events for Parent's Weekend was jammed packed with activities. When you visit, we suggest leaving enough time to be able to relax on the deck and listen to the distant surf and the shore birds. This morning, there was an eagle on the dock. It had flown away by the time I got my camera. It was a rare occurrence, usually it's just pelicans and sea gulls.

Just "Beachin"!

The "Green House" is the perfect hideaway for two! Parked at the southern end of Morro Bay, it was so quiet and restful. Pandora spoiled us while we were there, to the point it was difficult to drive back home. The nicely kept up little home has a lot of beach charm to it, so it was perfect for our needs. We enjoyed our morning/afternoon coffee on the deck, watching the wacky pelicans dive bombing for fish. And with so many restaurants to choose from, we relied on her spot on recommendations and enjoyed many good meals. It was tonic for our weary souls!

Owner's Response: The Cottage provides a quiet, artful, peaceful retreat, perfect for anniversaries and special occasions. This couple celebrated their anniversary at the Cottage and we knew that ahead of time...so naturally we surprised them with a few special treats to help make their stay a memorable experience.

A Perfect Ending

  • 5 of 5
Green Cottage is an absolute delight in every way and we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend the last few days of a wonderful month in the USA. We have only two regrets 1) that we only had three nights there, still so much to see, do and enjoy and 2) that it is too far away for regular repeat visits!

A serene and beautiful place to go...

  • 5 of 5
One of many beautiful things at the cottage was sitting out on the veranda with my morning cafe....watching the mist roll out and the pelican's meeting up on the docks for morning conversations....The peace and quiet was perfect and well deserved...didn't want to be anywhere else....

The Cottage was fully contained and stocked and the movie collection was amazing!! Did not want to leave... I'll be back...!!

Owner's Response: This young woman deserved the peace and quiet. She'd run a 100-miler in Oregon and came to the Cottage to rest. Then as she returned home to Vancouver Island, ran another one. We'd like to think we provided her the healing and restorative powers to conquer her goals. 100 miles? Twice? That's a bunch!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
The Green Cottage was the perfect getaway and base of operations for a few days escape on the coast. The owners were very helpful in advance of our stay and we were pleasantly surprised with coffee, yogurt, and local fresh fruit that we enjoyed every day of our stay!

While at the cottage we visited area wineries and the Hearst Castle and enjoyed local Morro Bay activities... wandering around the area, enjoying the peace and quiet of the cottage, area restaurants, sunset from Morro rock and the cottage, and kayaking in Morro Bay.

We booked our guided kayaking experience through Central Coast Outdoors and had a guide very knowledgeable in the ecosystem of the lovely protected Bay. We enjoyed the kayaking, walk on the dunes/sand pits, and seeing the wildlife including: egrets, herons, sea otters, harbor seals, and even dolphins that spent some time "playing" with us (we understand this is not very common, but was spectacular).

Owner's Response: This couple's experience was perfect. They even saw dolphins IN the bay while kayaking. That rarely happens. The Cottage is perfect for a get-away: quiet, peaceful, artful, private, and great to return to after a day of exploring our bountiful county.
