I have started to loose count how many times I have enjoyed the Green Cottage. Definitely my go to place to stay when I need to be in the area whether for work or play. This time I arrived by train, a fun and relaxing way to travel from Orange County. I joined friends for an Art show in SLO, Dinner in Cambria and a movie premier at Hearst Castle. There is so much to do in and around Morro Bay. The cottage is everything it says it is and more....simple put it is PERFECTION. A must stay on any travelers bucket list. I have already booked my next visit in October!
Response from the owner We love our return guests!!! Not only is it a great endorsement for our Cottage, but we get to know our guests' likes so we can better suggest things to do and places to go, whether it's a funky little Mexican restaurant with the world's best salsa, or the hidden "Far Out West winery" off the beaten track that consistently ranks at 92-94 points.
“A Slice of Heaven”
My husband & I planned a weekend trip to San Luis Obispo to visit our daughter who is attending Cal Poly. We booked a two-night stay at the Green Cottage, and we absolutely fell in love with this charming place. It's situated in a quiet, secluded bay-front setting with amazing views and all the creature comforts one could desire. The interior of the Cottage is beautifully appointed with thoughtful, artful details. It's the perfect setting for those seeking relaxation, escape, and rejuvenation. Plus it's close to local beaches, hiking, and a 20 minute drive to downtown SLO. We will most certainly return!!
Response from the owner We know how important it is to make our guests feel both welcomed and at home. That's why there are special touches throughout the Cottage, including fresh flowers from our rose garden, freshly ground coffees from our local roastery; soaps, shampoos, conditioners; an array of spices, herbs, teas, and almost every thing a foodie would want in their personal kitchen, much less a rental. We are in a very quiet residential area, right on the water. It's private, peaceful and has fabulous views. The Cottage is also central to everywhere in San Luis Obispo county. Visit soon.
“A serene and beautiful place to go....”
One of many beautiful things at the cottage was sitting out on the veranda with my morning cafe....watching the mist roll out and the pelican's meeting up on the docks for morning conversations....The peace and quiet was perfect and well deserved...didn't want to be anywhere else.... The Cottage was fully contained and stocked and the movie collection was amazing!! Did not want to leave... I'll be back...!!
Response from the owner This young woman needed a rest. She'd run a 100-miler in Oregon on the way down to the Cottage. Then after just a few days, began her trip back to Vancouver Island, and stopped in Oregon and ran another one. 100 miles! That's a bunch. We're delighted the Cottage provided her a respite.
“This is a home away from home and right on the water.”
The Green Cottage is a genuine haven. Everything you need is already there, and if not, Pandora and Gary will supply it or tell you where you can find it. The kitchen is fully equipped for eating in, including sharp knives, and Pandora considerately had on hand freshly ground coffee, cream, yogurt, fruit, and oatmeal so that we enjoyed our first morning on the bay without having to go out. The cottage is very comfortable and beautifully furnished; everywhere you look there is something pretty and unique on a wall or on a table. Thoughtfully maintained and in immaculate condition, it is just right for two, but another room has a daybed in it should you need it. The bathroom has extra towels and mats, and the kitchen has linens, hot pads, paper towels--again, everything you need. You will be tempted to spend all of your time at the cottage. A helpful library about the area informs you of the local wildlife, attractions, and history. Naps in the comfortable king bed with Pandora's designer quality quilt are restful and restorative. A huge collection of DVDs and reading books are an entertainment alternative in the evenings. The patio is right on the water and gives you a lovely view of the dunes and the small towns of Baywood Park and Morro Bay. Ever-changing tides and a variety of birds will amuse you for long periods of time, and you will be baffled trying to capture the light on the water and dunes with your camera. At night in the quiet of the dead end street, the towns softly glow across the water. But there are many things to do there, so you will venture forth. We rode our bikes, walked some of the area's many trails, played golf at the nearby Sea Pines Resort executive course, shopped at the surprisingly bountiful local farmer's market, and toured some of the abundant art galleries featuring a rich array of local artists. Although we preferred to eat most meals at the cottage, we did love the fish and chips at Lil Hut in Morro Bay for lunch, and there are many good restaurants within a short drive. Pandora, Gary, and the annotated notebooks in the cottage can provide you with many more options for activity and dining. Of course we are hesitant to rave on and on since the cottage is increasingly booked, but we will take our chances on getting a week's reservation there again next year and the next. The cottage has a tranquil and embracing spirit that we need to experience again.
Response from the owner This couple has stayed with us often. They return because the like the quiet restful setting, and the abundance of things to see and do nearby. They like the fast and convenient WiFi and the over 400 DVDs in our movie library. They like purchasing from our Farmers Market on Mondays and from Tognazzini's fish market in Morro Bay. They have already booked their next stay. Come see why. Book now.
“Always 5 Stars!!”
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 adventures and memories shared there.
Response from the owner Jayne is one of our all-time-champion guests! In May 2014 she had already stayed 6 times, and she's been back several times a year since. We have plenty of repeat guests and this is due to a number of factors, but the key is how the property is presented with personal touches that make them feel that we've truly thought about them. We want our guests to have a fabulous experience. And they do. That's why they return.
“Idyllic, quiet hideaway with stunning views.”
Perfect for those that want a quiet, cozy, beach cottage to get away from it all. Spotless, nice furnishings, close to Morro Bay, Hearst Castle, and San Luis Obispo and located in a charming, friendly neighborhood. Highly recommended, will definitely book it again.
Response from the owner We believe the motivation for returning guests at the Green Cottage On Morro Bay has clearly been their response to what we like to believe is a quality, spotless Cottage backed by good service. We love what we do and I believe people enjoy coming here, time and again because it shows. Come see why.
“Amazing Reunion Sanctuary”
I am adopted and recently found my half sister -- we wanted a very special place to meet for the first time. We chose the Green Cottage. We met for the first time and celebrated our birthdays together (48 and 52), and I can't begin to put into words how beautiful, cozy, and welcoming the Green Cottage was. Every detail was perfect. The owners made us feel very special in every way. The beauty of the area was the perfect backdrop to get to know each other in privacy. I highly recommend the Green Cottage to anyone who wants to connect with the person they are traveling with. It exceeded every expectation I had and I will be returning for another amazing visit.
Response from the owner Why fun this experience was. We got involved early and helped with decorations, a special poster of welcome for the sisters, and added lots of extras to make this very special, once-in-a-lifetime reunion as special as it could be. We like helping, our guests just need to ask!
“Gorgeous view, lovely comfort, thoughtful amenities, gracious to”
This cottage feels like home from the moment you arrive - yet its lovely view, beautiful decor and attention to comfort and detail assure you you are someplace very special. It is its own world for the two of you - there are places to snuggle, relax, nap, cook, coffee, always with a spectacular view of the bay, always in comfort. Everything we could have wanted had been thoughtfully prepared. We were planning our next visit back on Day Two!
Response from the owner This young woman was a delight and indeed she has already book for a week's stay in August.
“Slice of heaven…by the Bay.”
Perfect in every way! From the incredible intimate bayside location, where one can gaze out on to the water, the many flyway birds, the changing tide, the night sky, the kayakers, the Morro Bay rock, etc...to the fully equipped kitchen...our stay was complete. Fluffy pillows, luxurious linens, every attention to detail, to enhance a traveler's experience, made this a spot that my husband and i would return to, in a minute. Volumes of sightseeing info, plus detailed info re: the surrounding area, enhanced the experience even more. Binoculars, local coffee, fruit, flowers, antiques, art...all of incredible quality, were available, as was the graciousness of hosts Gary and Pandora. A must do, if one is traveling the Los Osos/Morro Bay/ San Luis Obispo area route!
Response from the owner We love our Cottage! It's been in our family since the 1950s. It has been the site of weddings, theatric rehearsals, studying for entrance exams, reunions and 3 generations of our family and friends. We treat the Cottage as the treasure it is and love to share it with our guests. We believe the key factor in creating a memorable experience is the human touch and the establishment of a personal relationship with our guests: what do they like to do? What are their interests? How can we help point them to places and events that will be unique for them? For me, this relationship-building starts the moment they make their inquiry, and it continues throughout and after their stay. That's why we have so many 5-Star reviews on this site, and over 170 on another. Come experience it for yourself!
“Best Cottage in Los Osos”
This is my 5th time to "The Green Cottage" and I can't wait to return. The cottage is always impeccable in every detail. Pandora has a very high standard for this property and it is a pleasure to return knowing it will be a magical experience.
Response from the owner "Magic" and experience. That is our business and is how we treat the Green Cottage and our guests. We want our guests to feel the magic and enjoy all the uniqueness of our area. After all, if they are happy, they return again and again. Book soon, and see why.
