Check in process was simple and easy. Booklets on the house were helpful and property management was responsive. The house was clean and comfortable, with a great location to the beach and everything we expected. We had trouble getting the tv to stream Netflix or anything else, but were able to watch cable tv. Other than that, it was a great vacation!

“Such an amazing home in a great location. Take advantage of all the great amenities offered. Will most definitely be staying again in the future. Thank you !”

“Exceeded our expectations! The perfect place for our family with a toddler and her grandparents to enjoy all together. Walking distance to the beach to collect shells and sand dollars and an easy 3 minute drive down to Morro Rock. The beds were SO comfortable and the layout is great with 2 living spaces so everyone has room to hang out. We will definitely be back! Kathy was so great to communicate with and allowed us to check in early as well so our daughter could nap. Just the best!”

“Our family escaped to Morro Bay for a couple days to get a new scenery. This location is absolutely perfect for utilizing the trials for either walks or bike rides, and the beach is only steps away. The property management was fantastic and responded so fast to any questions we had before and during our stay. Would definitely visit again.”
- Kristianna B.
We had a nice stay the beds where comfortable it wasn’t as close to the trail or water as we thought from viewing the listing but just a short drive away. The host was fast with response when we came across an issue.

Great house, great location, nice to be at the beach.
- Andy H.
Our first family stay together for Christmas at Kathy's property was a great stay! Area, location, weather overall no need for improvement it's spot on!
Right off the freeway but you can’t hear the cars from inside. A few blocks from the beach. You can see the Rock from the backyard. We used the fire pit in the backyard at night and it was so pleasant. We had left some stuff in the dryer upon checkout and Kathleen was super helpful and coordinated it so that the house cleaner could put our stuff aside for my family (who lives in town) to pick up. Make sure you read the checkout checklist in the binder before you’re scrambling out the door. There’s about 20-30 minutes of chores to knock out upon checkout.
Close to the beach and trail. The backyard is great for spending time with friends and family!
The house was perfect. It had everything we needed plus more. Our kids loved the games and our walks to the beach. The house was more than we expected. It was very warm and welcoming. Definitely ready to go back!!!!
- Erica S
Walking distance to the beach and a nice backyard to relax! The house backs up to a highway, which does make it a bit noisy throughout the day.
- Sonia S
Absolutely beautiful! My family and I had a wonderful, relaxing 4 days here in this home... Very clean and organized... easy to navigate. Loved the backyard with firepit 💞! Loved that we all had our own bedrooms and 2 bathrooms awesome. I'll definitely be coming back to this home 💞!
- Kim C
Really comfortable house, close walking distance to the beach and park. Very comfortable to be in. Went on several bike rides. There is a fair amount of road noise in the house if the windows are open.
- Jessica C
Great location, so close to the beach and bike path. The house is well stocked and very kid and family friendly. Loved the backyard and the fire pit. House was very nice, loved the location and the yard.
- Brittany S
Beautiful home, great location (2 block from beach) overall wonderful great away. Definitely coming back.
- Danae Z
What an adorable home. It is exactly as pictured. Plenty of space & the beds were very comfortable. The home is TWO blocks from Morro Strand beach. You can literally see Morro Rock from the kitchen window. Kathy was very thoughtful in including bikes, towels, beach bag and other amenities to take with you to enjoy the beach, as well as toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, face wash, etc. The fire pit is a HUGE bonus and we had such a great time enjoying the warmth & chatting after a long day out. The home is conveniently located a short 5 minute drive to the Embarcadero, as well as a grocery store & gas station. I highly recommend this home as this will be my go-to home should I choose to return to Morro Bay in the future. Thanks, Kathy!
- Deanna D
This house is great! It fit 7 people comfortably. The beds are all comfy and there is plenty of room to spread out. The fire pit is to die for! We spent many nights around it. The location can’t be beat. The only issues we had were related to cleanliness, responsiveness (in the beginning of my booking. While staying there responses were quicker) and not enough toiletry items for a large group. The house was clean, but certain areas of the home weren’t. These are minor things and I would absolutely recommend this place as we will definitely book again!
- Jeannie A
Great house.. so quiet and easy location . Very clean. Can't wait to book again.

Kathleen’s hospitality was amazing. She thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

Great place to stay, very clean & comfortable. We had a very nice stay, just couldn't figure out the TVs.
Great place, great location. After a day of sightseeing or a day at the beach we’d hang out by the fire in the backyard. Having bikes to use was fun. Short walk to the beach. This house worked out perfectly for us. Recommended!
- Tom L
Excellent location and great house for a fun filled family weekend getaway!
- Ryan L
An amazing home! Great little path to the beach! Head north about 5 minutes and hit the beach in Cayucos as well.
- Louis C
Kathy was very helpful and put my mind at ease with several emails (Thank you, Kathy) because of covid concerns. The property is well maintained, clean, and well stocked amenities. We all loved the backyard with a gas fire bowl, outside seating, and proximity to beach. We are already talking about dates for next year and staying longer!!
- Nancy W
A very nice place. Fantastic fire pit in the backyard with the view of Morro Rock. Paved walking/biking trails nearby. Close to beach. Located close to highway.
- Leslie H
This place was in such a great location. We walked to the beach and it was so close to the freeway driving somewhere was super easy. The backyard was amazing and the house itself was just clean and had plenty of space for us.
- Andrea M
“As expected, very nice place to stay. Walk right down to the beach!”
- Seng H
This place is very clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. I stayed with three adult friends and we had plenty of space to relax. The outdoor space is an added bonus with two sitting areas - a table for meals and the fire pit to just relax with a beverage. It also has a nice view of Morro Rock! You are also just a couple of blocks from a great paved walking/biking path along the coastline. I hope to stay here again soon.
The house is located in an ideal spot for families. A block away from the beach and just a short drive/bike ride to the park. Great restaurants and activities (whale watching, fishing, kayaking) all within a few minute drive. The inside of the home was very spacious as it accommodated for 5 of us (3 adults, 11 & 3 y/o). A huge plus was that they provided many things to enjoy the area and beach (bikes, towels, toys, chairs and wagon). Last but not least.. The view of the Morro Bay Rock in the backyard was simply amazing!! We look forward to staying here again.
We loved this house! We spent a long weekend exploring Morro Bay and we didn’t run out of things to do. The location of the house could not be beat- we walked to the beach at least three times in four days just because we could. We loved the bike path and were thankful for the bikes provided, too. The fire bowl in the back was a huge hit and we utilized all of the living areas with different activities (puzzles, reading, card games, etc.) My parents loved it- they had never used Airbnb before so this set the bar high if we ever go anywhere else. The neighborhood seemed really quiet and safe, too. My kids didn’t want to leave! Kathleen was great about responding and answering questions as well. Thanks for helping us enjoy time together in a new setting. ❤️
This is a great place for a family, with lots of fun provided for all ages. We loved being able to walk to the beach, taking the bikes for a ride along the coast, and sitting by the gas fireplace in the garden at night. The beds were really comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped. We had a wonderful time!
This place is a gem. It is located right off highway 1 north of the town of Morro Bay. The place is neat and tidy, well stocked and has a beautiful outdoor space for dining and reading. It is very relaxing with a great view of the Morro Bay rock. It is approximately 2 blocks to a not crowded beach on the ocean. You can also go to town to rent kayaks to use in Morro Bay which is very calm and has sea lions, sea otters and birds. Plenty of hiking to be done in the area. There are 3 bicycles at the house. There is some road noise from highway one during the day. At night, we used the fans in the house and didn’t hear the road at all.
We truly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful home! The view was great and the fire pit our favorite part.
Kathleen was very helpful during our stay! We came during the rain but that didn’t stop our adventures! It was very clean, plenty of space for 4 adults, 1 child and 2 babies. My 5 year old son especially enjoyed the home and didn’t want to leave. We needed Kathleen’s help during our stay and she was quick to respond and help out ASAP! We really appreciated that. We will definitely be back and look forward to spending time here when the sun is shining!
This is a great place for a family. The house is well taken care of, well-stocked, and very comfortable. We had a great stay there with our toddler!
Great space for families with or without small children. Well appointed kitchen and laundry facilities. Short walk to the beach and easy drive to the main downtown/harbor area of Morro Bay. Feels like home with space to spend time as a family or have some individual time. Road noise can’t be heard from inside the house. Great place!!! We’d stay here again!
A lovely homely space, close to all amenities
Great house for a long (4-day) weekend stay. Property was very clean and updated, in a quaint, quiet neighborhood. Close proximity to Morro Bay town center and the great food options and shopping along the Embarcadero - maybe a 5 minute drive. You could also walk or bike into town (bikes provided, which was pretty neat!), as it is very close. We took a nice morning walk along the Cloisters path and saw lots of birds, lizards, and cottontail rabbits along the way, which was cool for us city folk! House has everything you need, including WiFi and Netflix. Beds were comfortable, and the firepit in the back is a nice spot to hang out in the evenings. We will be back!
We had a great and fun stay. No wheref during the reservation process did it ever specify the home was directly next to highway 12
We loved our stay, great location and everything we needed was at the house. We would stay at Kathleen’s again.
- Alejandra R.
My group and I stayed at Kathleen's place and loved the time we spent here. The beach was 2 blocks away and the kids had a lot of fun! The host provided us with beach chairs/ umbrella and sad toys too. The house was very well kept and a really beautiful serene spot. We had some issues with the check-in but Kathleen took great care of us. We'd happily come back to this home and spend an amazing time by the beach again!
- Neha S
My family of four and I had an amazing time in Morro Bay! The house was clean and very spacious. The owners had everything we needed; bikes, boogie boards, beach toys and even beach towels! You can tell that the owners take pride in their home! We already booked our next stay here!
- Christina L
Great place for a getaway from the big city. The beach is gorgeous and only a short block away. Quiet neighborhood for the kids to play. Really love the comfy beds and furniture. A true resort like experience.
- Patrick S
This property was exactly what we were looking for. It had all the essentials including beach toys and towels, an outdoor fire pit and a well equipped kitchen. The house was clean and comfortable. It is a five minute walk to the beach and the neighborhood felt very safe. The house is right on the other side of the freeway, but the noise wasn’t bothersome at all. I would definitely recommend booking this house!
- Eden L.
Great location to the beach and about 5 min drive to downtown. The home is closer to the highway rather than the beach side but still very close to the actual beach, about 5 min walk.
- Kami W.
We had a wonderful stay at Kathleen’s. The house as a lot of space, very clean, and everything you need for a beach vacation! We walked to the beach from the house (easy flat walk). Especially loved the backyard patio with fire pit. Will absolutely stay again. Thank you Kathleen!
- Brandon E.
Very convenient to the beach and to town. The house was well-stocked with recreational equipment - bikes, beach gear, etc. Although the house is close to the main highway, it's really quiet inside. There were four of us but with separate living room & family room areas could have comfortably accommodated more.
- Everett S.
This house is comfortable and the landscaped backyard is beautiful with the gas firepit. Amazing view of Morro Rock. Very near highway 1 so be aware there is street noise. Short walk to beach through quiet neighborhood. Very nice hosts!
- Jill R
Location, location, location. A perfect location to enjoy the greater area. As a bonus it is a couple of minutes walk to the beach. Our family loved it!
We had a wonderful stay. The house was very clean and in a great location to walk to the beach. Even though the house is off a busy hey, it was not a distraction and at night, even with the window open, the sound was not noticeable. I would have liked more toilet paper in each bathroom and there was no Kleenex so I went out and bought my own. We had to use the housekeeping Tide as there was not TidePods like stated. I loved how we were given texts prior to arrival and if we were able to arrive early or depart later.
Our stay was very nice! The house was clean, it was an easy location to get to the beach and pier, and the backyard was very chill. However, the house is literally on the corner of the highway so it was quite noisy at both day and night. In addition, bring your own coffee!
- Katie D.
Spent a long weekend in Morro Bay while visiting our son at Cal Poly SLO. We comfortably fit our family of 5 in the well appointed home. Close to Morro Rock as well as only 15 minute from Cal Poly campus. House was very clean and kitchen had everything we needed.
We had a great girls weekend getaway celebrating birthdays with a group of close college friends. The house was nice and roomy and comfortable for everyone. We noticed that when we first arrived, that our feet and socks were getting black. It was undetermined if this was due to the type of flooring or if the floors were actually dirty. There were also some greasy dishes that we found in the cabinets. This did not deter from our enjoyment of the house though. The beds were comfortable and the location was fantastic, being only 2 blocks from the beach. It was also walking distance/short drive to grocery shopping. I would definitely stay at this house again.

My husband and I took our 9 month old son with us on a trip to Morro Bay so my husband could learn to paramotor. We were in the area for about 2 weeks and we loved our stay! This place is in the perfect location - right in the middle of basically everything. The grocery store, gas station, cute little Downtown area and the beach my husband was training on were all within just a short 5 minute drive from us. The backyard is what drew us to this house, and it was perfect for an end-of-training BBQ with all the other paramotorists. The house itself was clean and had the perfect layout. We needed at least three rooms as we had family traveling with us - this house was a perfect fit. Our one (and super small) complaint would be that the furniture in the living rooms were a bit old, and the appliances were older and well used (but clean!). Other than that, we loved our stay. Would definitely stay here again!

I rented this house along with my sister and her family for 4th of July week 2018. It was such a lovely home. We were a block from the beach and a short walk to a nearby park. It was so nice to be so close after a long day on the beach. The house had a wagon and we brought one too. The kids loved the fire pit and big yard to play in. There were plenty of spots got hide and go seek. Even though the house was near a busy intersection, you felt secluded with all the trees and bushes. The yard was fenced and we had no worries about the kids playing. There were two living rooms. The kids took over one and the adults enjoyed the TV in the other. The house came well equipped with everything we needed for cooking and bbqing. We would definitely stay again

Our family stayed here 5 nights and it was fantastic. This property offers all the amenities we could ask for. Very spacious and comfortable, especially the beds and family room furniture. The kitchen is stocked with every tool we needed for cooking and barbecuing. The little touch of placing colored tape on the edge of the 2 steps from the kitchen into the family room was genius. We appreciate the home's is spotless! When we drove up and opened the door, we all said 'this is nice!' true to the online photos. We walked to the beach, a nice 10-minute walk on the marked trail. The home's location just off Hwy 1 is very convenient. Thank you sharing this wonderful property! The TurnKey communication team is very professional, which we truly appreciate.

The home was clean, with all the basic amenities in the kitchen and baths. It was an easy short walk to the beach and nearby walking paths along the coast. We had a glitch with the touch pad key when we arrived that was taken care of by a quick phone call. We would stay here again without reservation. Our family had a great time here, especially sitting out around the fire pit visiting and viewing Morro Rock. We would definitely recommend this place.

Our group of five had plenty of space to relax in this clean, well maintained home. When it was too breezy and chilly to enjoy the outdoor firepit in the beautiful backyard, we lit the fireplace indoors instead. It made a great place to curl up with a book while others may have watched the Olympics on the big screen TV in the other family room. Having the two comfortable spaces was great! We ate many meals at the home because the kitchen was well equipped as well as being able to use a gas grill outdoors. With the great location we could be in Morro Bay in just a few minutes to get fresh fish or groceries. The easy walk to the beach was a pleasant surprise, too. We had a couple little glitches (a kitchen electrical outlet wasn’t working and the lock gave us trouble) but a call to the management and it was fixed promptly or we were given help over the phone. There were many little touches that made this clean home even more comfortable, like cozy throw blankets, beach towels, candles, books, etc. We would recommend this home with a view of Morro Rock for a great spot to relax.

We enjoyed our 3 days at this property. The home is set up really well for renters -- they've thought of everything you might need. It's tastefully furnished too. Our 3yr old son enjoyed the grass and big tree in the backyard. The only draw-back is the traffic noise outside, but we couldn't hear it inside.
