Explore

Morro Rock is the bay's most striking feature. Standing 581-feet high, this surreal volcanic plug stands at the entrance to the harbor inviting tourists to come and explore its base. Climbing is prohibited without special permit because Morro Rock is a resting ground for otters and a peregrine falcon reserve. Members of the Chumash and Salinan tribes are permitted to climb Morro Rock and conduct annual ceremonies that have been performed for thousands of years at this sacred site.

Morro Bay State Park, encompasses the Morro Bay Lagoon, where saltwater marshes support a variety of bird populations and interesting strains of fish and crustaceans. Two of the Nine Sisters coastal chain of volcanic peaks are also on-site. You can hike the Black Hill Trail, sail, fish, and watch for unique birds, and the park's Morro Bay State Park Museum of Natural History has exhibitions about Morro Bay's geology, oceanography, ancient native Chumash Indian life, and their cultural history. The park also has a public golf course and a marina.

The kitchen is fully stocked with all sorts of food and staples that are included in the rental. The only downside was that although it is pet friendly, the backyard is not enclosed. As far as the dogs were concerned an enclosed yard would have made their trip!! My husband felt that the refrigerator was a bit noisey which interrupted his sleep but it didn't bother me! The beach is definetly within walking distance but that particular beach access does not allow dogs as it is a plover nesting sanctuary.

House was clean and orderly, all ten of us were very comfortable throughout our stay. Close proximity to the Embarcardero and other sites, great location. Sharon was very courteous and professional, an absolute pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend.

You can hear the waves pounding in the distance from the large deck. Home and amenities have been updated nicely. Beds in master bedroom and second bedroom were comfortable. We didn't have any issues with leaks or a lack of hot water as mentioned in previous reviews from others. Located just a short (5 minutes or less) drive to downtown/the beach and located in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. We didn't bring our dogs but this home is very well set up for pets. The only drawbacks to this home are that there is a somewhat long flight of stairs you have to walk up to get to the front door and that this home would much more comfortably sleep 4 people than 5. The twin pullout mentioned in the comments is located in the living room inside of an ottoman, it is not full length and looks like it's intended more for animals than people (it's kind of dirty). We ended up putting one of our kiddos on the floor with a sleeping bag we brought instead of using the pullout. Otherwise it's a great property!
