NEW LISTING! - Nestled in the established neighborhood of Cuesta by the Sea, this newly updated, light and airy, 2BR/1BA, bungalow is the perfect hideaway to escape back to nature and find serenity. You truly can get away from it all in Los Osos. Surrounded by natural preserves, quaint homes and small, local businesses, Los Osos is a fall back to a simpler, slower way of life. Well-known for its artisans, bohemian lifestyle and nature lovers, you can renew and refresh your inner being here. Relax....and just breathe.


Rest your weary bones in the master bedroom's luxurious king size bed adorned with crisp white sheets, a down comforter and a plethora of hug-worthy pillows. Sleep in or stay up late watching your favorite old time movies on the 30" smart TV. To keep the sea breeze swaying, a modern ceiling fan with a remote control will do the trick.

The second bedroom offers a new queen bed with fresh, white sheets, a down comforter and even more pillows for your complete comfort. Also with a modern ceiling fan, there is no need for any AC.

A third sleeping area is the modern sectional that converts to a full queen size bed. Additional linens, a comforter and extra cushy pillows are provided should they be needed.

The full bath with a tub/shower combination services the bedrooms. The shower was recently updated with a new, oversized tub, gorgeous, iridescent glass tiles and a bowed, frameless sliding door shower enclosure with tempered glass on stainless steel rollers. A single vanity with an undermount sink, granite countertop and tile floors brings a modern streamlined style to the look.


The open concept living/dining/kitchen area is the heart of the home. The living room has a modern sectional with seating for five. A classic, well-loved rocking chair with worn leather arms adds an eclectic look and is the perfect spot to read a book or watch the 55" smartTV. The dining table seats six is the spot to share good food and good times with family and friends. The newly updated kitchen with freshly-painted white cabinets and stainless steel hardware adds to the beachy feel of the bungalow. A new dishwasher, a microwave oven, a gas stove with 4 burners and the fridge complete the spacious kitchen amenities. Outside there are two beach chairs and bistro table to relax or man the gas BBQ grill while cooking up some burgers.


We're a dog-friendly home. Through the laundry room just off the kitchen is a doggie door that leads to a fenced-in side yard. Fido can do his business in private. We just ask that Fido's mom or dad clean up after him, both outside and inside. (Dog bowls not provided.)


All of the modern artwork (save for one) on the walls is that of the homeowner's and one her friends. Her creative eye and use of bold, bright colors adds a fanciful flair to the decor. Never trained professionally, she painted most of them out of desperation. She had bare walls and no money. Be inspired by her awesome artwork. Let you inner artist out.


Miles away yet close to everything, Los Osos has a quaint village where the locals hangout. Back Bay Cafe, the Merrimaker Tavern and 3rd Street Bakery are the usual haunts. Just around S. Bay Blvd. is Morro Bay where you can find plenty of people watching, shopping and restaurants along the Embarcadero. For the hiker in you, don't miss the Montana de Oro State Park. The vistas are magnificent. If you want to play a round of Golf, Morro Bay State Park has a fantastic course and awesome mountain views. Head inland a few miles and check out San Luis Obispo. Thursday night's Farmer's Market is a "can't miss" taste sensation. Head north on Route 1 to Cayucos, Cambria, Hearst Castle and the Elephant Seals at Piedras Blancas in San Simeon. There's lots to explore.


Ralph's  is less than 2 miles away, Albertson's 3 miles. Grocery Outlet and Baywood Market are also close by. For a little local flavor Los Osos Mexican Market is just on 10th Street.

Head over to Giovanni's in Morro Bay for some of the best fresh fish on the Central Coast.


We provide personal amenities including soap, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion, paper products, kitchen necessities such as dishwashing detergent, dishwasher soap and trash bags. There are plenty of linens and bath towels. Laundry facilities and detergent are in the laundry room. The kitchen is also stocked with the basics: olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, spices, and condiments. There is dinner service for 8 as well as plenty of serving necessities.


There is so much to do here: hiking, walking, mediating, bird watching, photography, kayaking, paddleboarding, whale watching, dinner cruises, enjoying nature preserves: Monarch Grove Natural Area, Montana de Oro State Park, or just plain relaxing.

The Highlights...

This light, airy and spacious bungalow is the perfect escape to find serenity. Newly remodeled with all new furnishings, new beds and bedding, fresh paint and new floors create the backdrop for the homeowner's own fanciful artwork on display in all the rooms. A relaxing deck and gardens are enclosed by the quintessential white picket fence. Find your zen in the Bayside Bungalow. You can bring Fido too!

Loved the Trails near Water!                                                                                  ****4/5 -Stars 

Fun neighborhood🌟 Loved the trails near water. We appreciated that our doggies were able to be with us. They loved it so much. We did all our own cooking for four adults and wish the kitchen was a bit better stocked… Otherwise I absolutely love the house. Sweet energy 🌺

RESPONSE  FROM  DIGS: Hi Margie, Thank you for your great feedback. We appreciate it. We'll take a look at how we can improve the staples.

Just What We Needed!                                                                                            *****5/5 Stars

Our little desert community recently went through two major earthquakes. My husband, our old dog, and I needed a few days away from the stress. These few days in Los Osos provided that rest. The house is in a quiet neighborhood. Los Osos is easy to get around. It was just what we needed.

Clean and comfortable!                                                                                           ****4/5 -stars  

The space was very clean and nicely decorated. As pictured. Kathleen was very quick to respond, but unfortunately we had a few hiccups with check in and had to wait a few hours for the home to be cleaned. The house is very well kept and the space is very comfortable!!

Response from DIGS:
We tried to give you an early check-in as an extra courtesy (2 hours before the normal check-in time). You got in just a little past the normal check-in time. Unfortunately, cleaning does take time to bring it up to our standards. We give early check in times whenever possible when requested. Sometimes, it doesn't work out. Thay day it didn't. The cleaners had a lot of back to back cleanings and it just wasn't possible. Next time! Thanks.

Great location. Very sweet home. Quiet neighborhood. Clean. Easy access. We had a very peaceful time.

My family and I had a lovely stay at the bungalow! The home was very spacious and beautifully decorated and the kitchen was well-stocked. The place was very clean when we arrived and check-in was easy. The bungalow is close to grocery stores and is perfectly located for day trips to local state parks.

We were very pleased with our stay in Los Osos. Kathleen was very attentive and the house was very clean and stylishly decorated. There were four adults and two kids and sleeping was comfortable and adequate. It was a little difficult sharing one bathroom with six people, however. Also, it was nice having a fenced yard for the dogs. I would definitely plan on staying here again when in the area.

“Using Airbnb has been a wonderful experience in general, sometimes there can be a little feeling of disappointment or that something isn't quite what you were expecting, this place only made us feel lucky to have found it! The Bayside Bungalow was one of the most satisfying Airbnb stays we have ever had! Kathleen has been easy to reach and communicate with, and her place is so charming and comfortable, like being at a friend's house! The beds were comfortable, linens fresh and new, plenty of towels and a nicely stocked kitchen with all the basic tools and even some spices and condiments we usually have to bring or buy ourselves. The washer and dryer were also a big plus, as well as the barbeque on the front deck. Everything in the house is easy to use and operate. We enjoyed our daily walks to the bay, and the peace and tranquility of the neighborhood. Most of all we appreciated it being dog friendly! It is a privilege to find a place where we can take our fluffy family members, and we thank you so much for providing us with a relaxing space to get away and enjoy ourselves! We can't wait to visit again and stay in Kathleen's home!”

Quite Impressed!                                                                                                       *****5/5 -stars

“I was the first guest in this newly listed house on Airbnb and I have to say I was quite impressed with how well the house was set up and ready for the first guest. The host was always available to me which I very much appreciated. The house is in a great location close to the water (less than 1/4 mile). The inside of the house had been newly renovated with all of the modern features one would expect. The bed was very comfortable, sheets soft, towels soft, etc. The kitchen had all of the amenities one would need. The living room was also very comfortable with room for 4 to easily stretch out (although I was the only guest outside of my Dachshund Chloe). The place is dog friendly with a nice enclosed yard. A quick note - there is a doggy door however if you have a small dog it will not be able to use the doggie door because it sits high in the doorframe and is made for a medium to larger side dog.”
