Morro Bay House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bed/2.5 bath Sleeps 6

Bay front home with incomparable views from every room. This house is the perfect spot for you to relax and enjoy. Whether you are in need of a home base for the multitude of outdoor opportunities and excursions or just in need of place to relax and watch the tide go in and out, this is just your spot.

If you don't like to drive while you're on vacation, this is the spot for you! Once you arrive you won't have to get back into your car until you depart. The house is walking distance to groceries, quaint bay side coffee shops, restaurants and more. The bay front location makes this house the perfect launching spot for walks and water fun. The bedroom set-up is flexible, two rooms have queen beds and the third room has a twin day bed with a twin trundle. There are three bathrooms, one which has a shower that features an incredible view of the rock. Because this is our family home and not a vacation rental it has a well equipped kitchen with platters, dishes, serving utensils and all of the the basic pantry items. We hope you build memories here as we have.

My sisters and I are happy that our parents Cathie and Syd were smart enough to find this beautiful area in the early 70's. Our parents lived at the house full time from the early 90’s until just recently when they moved back to Claremont to their retirement community. Us girls live in Palo Alto (me), Sacramento (Susie) and Corona del Mar (Pam) and are all married with families; there are nine grandchildren, ages 18-28. We manage to get to the bay together about 4 times a year. Many of us have a photo of Morro Bay as the screen saver on our phones and you will hear the grandkids say that Morro Bay is one of their favorite places on earth. My parents talked of selling the house when they planned their move back to Claremont, in fact my father even said, “If we sell the house we can give you guys money to help pay for the grandkids college educations”. If any of you have recently put kids through school you know this would be a huge help! However, we weren’t even tempted. The house is a part of us, part of our traditions and memories that can’t be replaced. We couldn’t bear to part with it! We hope you love it as we do, we consider it our family home not a “vacation rental” and we hope you will consider it that as well. We hope it brings your friends and family together to enjoy special moments for years to come.

As kids my sisters and I loved to spend time “mud-stomping”, playing by the bay and walking into town by ourselves. We loved that because of the small community we had the freedom to roam without our parents. Admittedly, as kids we didn’t appreciate the peace and quiet, but now as we roll down the drive way we say, “Ahhh..”

Sharon Witte purchased this house in 1976

When driving down the coast from Monterey our parents discovered the charming town of Morro Bay, as they continued south from town they drove along the water and came upon a view of the sun sparkling on the water that they say was one of the prettiest sights they had ever seen. They followed the road to the little town of Baywood Park and instantly fell in love with the stunning bay views, small community and natural beauty. The first little house they bought was further from the bay on 2nd street. They were both school teachers in Claremont and drove up every weekend to paint, garden and enjoy the incredible views and unspoiled vistas. They spent years looking for just the right spot to build and decided on 656 Santa Lucia because it had the BEST location on the bay and knew that it would enjoy unspoiled views for years to come. My father (with mom’s input of course) designed the house and in fact built much of it himself. My mom did her share of work too, gardening, painting and building paths around the house. The house features the modern design that my parents both love, an open floor plan that lets the cooks always be a part of the fun. Above all, they maximized the views from every room in the house. Wait until you see the shower in the master bath!

This house is the perfect spot for friends and family to gather. We have spent countless hours laughing and talking on the deck, and making wonderful meals in the open kitchen. The stove set-up allows for multiple people to stir gravy at Thanksgiving, a task in which our teenagers love to participate!

There are activities at all energy levels…kayaking, hiking, walking around the bay or just lying on the floor with a good book. I am sure your group has the same mix of personalities ours does! It is a delight to be in such a quiet location but 2 blocks from a store and restaurants. The folks at Baywood Market are used to seeing us several times a day because we always forget something at the “big” market. The short walk, lack of traffic and small community gives kids a freedom they can’t experience elsewhere. When we needed “adult” time when the kids were little we would give them each $2.00 and send them to the “candy store” (Baywood Market). You can sit in the living room and watch the kids play by the water without the threat of a wave knocking them over. Early risers can walk to town for coffee and a scone, if no one feels like cooking you can walk 2 blocks to restaurants, and if you don’t want to watch “The Music Man” video for the 100th time you can escape to the Merrimaker and shoot a game of pool and listen to the Juke Box. Thursday night is karaoke night, we’ve even done that!

We are sure you’ll start your own traditions and build memories in this special house.

We loved this place from the moment we rolled in the door. Wheelchair access is good. While it might not be perfect for every wheelchair user, I had no serious problems. (I require a power wheelchair for locomotion, can self transfer etc.) My spouse loved going down the back steps & walking along the path right at the water. We both loved multiple restaurants in stumbling distance, the fog, the quietness. If you want to be in the middle of activity stay on the Morro Bay side…this is on the southern edge of the Bay. If you only want to dive into the active populated areas on your whim this is perfect. We drove over to the Embarcadero once or twice, which was perfect for us. The space is large but cozy. It is incredibly relaxing. Easy to make yourself at home. It would be great for 6, it was also great for just the 2 of us. Can't wait to go back.

Perfect place to celebrate a special occasion or just getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Very Close to the shopping and dining in Morro Bay but nice and quiet to go back to at the end of the day - Much bigger then the pictures make it look (large bedrooms) and beautiful view of the Los Osos Bay and Morro Bay - Thanks again for opening up your beautiful home for others to enjoy :)

Breathtaking Views

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful stay here. The views really are fabulous and next to a bird sanctuary. It has easy access to launch kayaks. However, the house is old; the floors squeak; the furniture, cleaning materials, and knick-knacks make it NOT kid friendly. My shin didn't like the glass coffee table either. The sheets and towels were old (my sheets had holes in them.) The coffee maker was out of order. A door opened in such a way that it blocked access to one of the bedrooms and it needed to be left open at times to allow heat to get to the back of the house. I probably wouldn't stay there again.

Owner's Response: Suzanne,
We are sorry that you didn't enjoy what our home had to offer. It is our family home that we choose to share with guests, not your typical bare bones rental. We invite guests to use all of our amenities, linens, and kitchen staples. Our family, which includes 11 grandkids have spent many special times there and find it "kid friendly". The beautiful glass tables suit the house and the view, sorry about your shin! We feel the photos on VRBO are representative of what you can expect and usually the house surpasses expectations. I am unaware that any of the sheets have holes or that the coffee maker is out of order and will check both today when we are there and certainly replace as necessary! Wishing you the best on your future adventures. Sincerely, Sharon

We are very fortunate to have found this amazing home on VRBO and we will surely be back. My family and I stayed there for a few days for Spring Break and had a great time exploring the central coast. It's a great base to check out Cambria, Hurst Castle, SLO and more. The house is very well equipped and has WiFi if needed. But the views... The views are breathtaking. The house is right on Morro Bay. Even on foggy days the view is still amazing. If you're planning a trip to the Central Coast stay here.

Stunning views from home

  • 5 of 5
Pulling in to the driveway you're greeted by lovely landscaping, plenty of parking, and a full view of Morro Rock. The photographs of the interior are spot on. What you see is what you get. Clean, warm, friendly, and relaxing living space. Ample space; we socialized for several hours before serving dinner to our 25 guest. Fabulous views; loved watching the tide come in and go out. Privacy; reading on the deck we felt we were in our only little paradise. Amenities: everything you need in the kitchen & bathrooms. Booking with Sharon was easy. We appreciated her friendliness & promptness in returning our emails and calls. We would highly recommend this home for any reason just to get away and enjoy the beauty.

We loved it! Our family, including 4 small children, have been to several places on the coast, and we loved this stay! Charming house with large rooms, well stocked, and great location. If you go, make sure you walk down to the coffee shop in town, we did it every morning!
We will be back!

The Central Coast is an incredibly beautiful part of California that offers many recreational opportunities or just a serene place to relax and rejuvenate. The scenic coast line meets rolling hills in an unparallelled combination of natural beauty. Spend the day kayaking in Morro Bay, wine tasting in local wineries, strolling the local beaches, or just sitting in the living room watching the tide go in and out. We promise you won't be disappointed!
