Los Osos ranks 6th in the nation for best beach towns!

IRVINE, Calif. – May 23, 2014 — RealtyTrac® the nation’s leading source for comprehensive housing data, recently released a special report on the best beach towns in America. For the report, RealtyTrac first selected the top 100 best beach towns based on four criteria: average temperature, percent of sunny days, percent of days with good air quality, and crime rates.

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

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

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.

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.

Relaxing and romantic!

  • 5 of 5
When my boyfriend and I opened the door to the cottage, we both had huge smiles on our faces. We couldn't believe how darling the cottage was. We explored every nook in the place and kept saying to each other, "Oh, you have to see this!" There's so much charm and character in this cottage, and it's clear how much love and care the owner and caretaker put into this place. We were pleasantly surprised that every plant and flower was real. The bouquet of beautiful flowers that greeted us when we walked in smelled heavenly. We loved the location, especially hearing the sound of the gentle waves in the evening and then seeing our "neighbors" in the morning (the pelicans, sandpipers, egrets, etc.). I kept going out to the back balcony to read and just enjoy the view. The drives to both Pismo Beach (to the south) and Morro Bay (to the north) are fairly short and also beautiful. We can't wait to visit again. My boyfriend, who usually stays in hotels for vacations, said, "The cottage is better than any hotel" and I agree with him. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We work very hard to ensure the Cottage far exceeds our guests' expectations. When the garden is in bloom, the flowers are from our personal garden which currently has over 70 varieties of fragrant, self-root roses. It really is fun to add the little touches that make our guests' stays an enjoyable experience, not just a weekend rental. Come back soon!

Back Again!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from another wonderful stay at Green Cottage. My husband and I both have busy, stressful careers, and returning to Green Cottage provides the quiet respite we need to recharge. Pandora and Gary provide just the right cozy touches to make you feel you are arriving at your own home-away-from-home on beautiful Morro Bay. The cottage is private, quiet, and romantic. The weather was gorgeous this past week. We were able to go bike riding, kayak over to the dunes and the Back Bay Cafe for coffee, and picnic on the deck while watching herons, egrets, pelicans, otters and a seal! Green Cottage provides everything we need to relax and renew. We will be back again soon!

Waterfront Peaceful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
The Green Cottage is amazing. My 3rd annual stay and I cannot wait until next year!
This cottage is a great romantic retreat for 2!
Everything you need is at the cottage including coffee, etc.
Make sure you take a walk in the dunes to the beach. I could not believe I was in Central CA...we we alone on the beach with surfers in the distance!

Owner's Response: Some of our guests want a quiet, peaceful visit. Others, like this couple, want adventure, activities and unusual places to visit. We enjoy sharing our area's bountiful opportunities with our guests. Pointing this couple to the dunes for an afternoon of exploration hit the spot. We really look forward to this couple's annual visit.

5 STARS EVERYTIME!!

  • 5 of 5
This is my sixth stay at the Green Cottage. Every time I come there are many things that are the same..
perfectly appointed, always very clean, great goodies in frig, beautiful flowers waiting, mint on my pillow! Then there are the things that are new...
art work, dishes, games, DVD's, herb container garden, beautiful towels and sheets, garden art.
Anything you could ever want is here...exactly as described on website.
There are so many things to do in such a short distance from the cottage. Pandora has amassed a collection of brochures on anything of interest.
I would have to say I will
never tire of coming to the Green Cottage and I look forward to many future adventure and memories shared there.

Owner's Response: When we started to share our family guest house on VRBO, we never thought we would have a following of loyal repeat guests so quickly. It is very nice to know our guests have appreciated what we provide for them. The Cottage is spotless, filled with the things we love -- art and creature comforts -- and a very functional kitchen with very sharp knives and lots of pots and pans for gourmet meals or just something simple. And then there is the view...it's breathtaking.

Perfect Relaxing Get-away

  • 5 of 5
Our two week stay at Green Cottage was the perfect, relaxing get-away from a frosty February in the mid-west. Peaceful mornings were spent on the deck, watching the birds and bay. It served as a great base from which we enjoyed drives up the coast, wine country excursions, and the quaint shopping and restaurant offerings of Morro Bay, Los Osos, and San Luis Obispo. The cottage was beautifully appointed, and the owners were extraordinarily kind and anticipated our every need. One of the best vacations we have ever had.

Casual living by the sea

  • 4 of 5
I would not go here if you have children, like sleek/sparse surroundings and want the hustle and bustle of the big city. I would go here if you want a clean, cozy, well appointed cottage and you want to get away. If your enjoyment comes from listening to the waves, watching shore birds, reading a book or going for a walk, this is your place! Our dinner (with some bubbly) took an hour and a half including photos of the sunset. The owner has made this sweet little cottage into a home away from home which the three of us enjoyed tremendously. It was the best sleep I've had in awhile.
