“The Perfect Bayside Retreat!”
Reviewed 3 October 2017 for a stay in August 2017

I have stayed many times at the Green Cottage on Morro Bay, and I will be coming back again! It is a perfect place to enjoy the many activities in the surrounding areas, or just veg out on the deck and soak up the views across the bay. Heaven!

We love our repeat guests. We get to know them, what they like and what interests them. That way we can suggest a 100 year old plus saloon or the opera at the Performing Arts Center, plus great restaurants and fabulous wine venues. We are fairly new on TripAdvisor/Flipkey, but on another vacation rental site, we have 179 five-star ratings. Come see why so many people LOVE the Green Cottage, and return again and again. We offer comfort, peace, quiet, nature and a chance to get in touch with yourself.

“Unique”
Reviewed 29 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We are also return guests, and there are more of us returnees to Paradise, and we stay longer each time. Like the others, we consider it home, too. We book well ahead to make sure we get to come back when we want to.

Pandora keeps playing house with the Cottage, upgrading amenities and rearranging the art, making a beautiful place memorable. Add incomparable images and wildlife of the Back Bay, Morro Bay, Baywood Park, Morro Rock, and Montana de Oro. Fold in activity opportunities at local wellness centers, wineries, thrift shops, farmer's markets, artist galleries (don't forget Pandora's ceramics studio), and bakeries. A recipe for rest and restoration.

Thank you, Pandora and Gary, for your generosity and integrity in offering and maintaining such a wonderful place!

The good news about having only one vacation, is that it's easy and fun to work with. I'm always looking for the "right" something to add to the kitchen collection, or a new piece of art for the wall. Our guests love the Green Cottage and think of it as a second home. The bad news about having only one, is that it becomes harder and harder for people to reserve time because guests like Sally & Jody book a year in advance. Check out our schedule, find a few days that are available that work with your schedule, and book it. You'll see why so many of our guests return several times a year, every year.

“Back Again!”
Reviewed 4 September 2017 for a stay in June 2017

My husband and I have been to Green Cottage many times over the years. This past summer we spent 3 weeks there, and now we find ourselves returning next week for yet another stay! The cottage has truly become our home-away-from-home. We are drawn there by the peace and tranquility of the bay, as well as the endless variety of things to do. We also love the many good restaurants in the central coast area. Green Cottage is really lovely inside and out, and the hosts furnish everything that one could want or need, providing a wonderful place to relax and unwind. Thank you, Pandora and Gary, for sharing your little peace of paradise!

We love our return guests. We get to know them and what they like and find interesting and make suggestions of interesting places to go and things to see. We've recommended a real wild west, 100+-year old saloon and the Hearst Castle, the Performing Arts Center and the Port San Luis Lighthouse, and Farmers Market too. We love to hear their stories and that they consider the Green Cottage the "happy place."

“Spiritual Serenity”
Reviewed 20 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We loved our Mothers Day stay at the Cottage. This cottage is located near a estuary. Sitting on the deck in the morning and watching the tide and birds is so tranquil. Pandora has thought of everything to make the stay perfect. There are great books, movies, the kitchen that has everything a cook would need and more. The location is perfect- you are near beautiful hiking trails, not far from wineries both in San luis Obispo and Paso Robles. It was so wonderful we left wanting more- We will be back to this very special place.

We put ourselves in the shoes of our guests, and try to provide everything they might need, whether it's oyster knives or trail hiking books. And, if there is anything they do need, we're seconds away and can provide almost anything. Although, I have to admit, we do not have individual marrow forks or a Versailles food pusher. We do have super sharp knives; lots of formal and informal serving ware; and enough pots and pans and serving dishes to make any "foodie" happy. We've stayed in a number of vacation rentals, and we always come away reassured our Cottage is as perfect as we can make it. Visit. See why so many people love the Green Cottage on Morro Bay. Stay here.

“The perfect beach cottage”
Reviewed 11 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Quaint, charming and well-appointed, the Green Cottage is the perfect escape for relaxing, rejuvenating and reflecting. This quiet, peaceful place feels like a world of its own. It is my home away from home!

Our guests return for many reasons: a home-base for exploring, a quiet respite for introspection, or a place away from day-to-day busyness. We have hosted famous writers, photographers and musicians and songwriters. The Green Cottage is credited for inspiring two new pieces of music by Eric Tingstad. It's true, there is something very special about the Cottage, and it inspires uninterrupted creativity. Oh, disclaimer here...if you are easily distracted by watching the tide come and go, and shore birds hunting for food, you will want to plan some "watching" time while you are here. The deck is the perfect spot.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 6 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This was our third stay at the Green Cottage and certainly won't be our last. In a word the cottage is perfect . . . the location, size, ambience and the way it makes you feel. If we could talk to the cottage, we would borrow the lyrics from a Bruno Mars song: "If perfect is what you're searching for, then just stay the same."
P.S.:The owners are awsome!!

Wow! Thank you! Love the Bruno Mars quote!!!

We love our return guests. They do fall in love with the quiet and relationship to the bay, shore birds and views. We get to know what our guests like and can make suggestions of unique places to visit and good restaurants to try. It's fun to catch up with what's happening in their lives. This couple tried a number of times to book with us, but we were too full. Now, they book months in advance. Come see why.

“Beautiful and serene”
Reviewed 29 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

What a fantastic getaway place! Our first stay but certainly wont be the last. Beautiful fresh flowers were provided by the owner as well as a special gift because she knew we were celebrating my wife's birthday. We were content to sit on the porch and watch the bay, read and nap. No sightseeing necessary for us as we went to college in SLO but for those new to the area there are many things to see and do. The cottage is beautifully decorated everything is provided. Is it clear by now that we are hooked on going to the Green Cottage? Do it, you wont be disappointed.

Thank you! We hope you come back soon!

We keep asking ourselves the question: "What can we do to make our guests' stays more memorable, more comfortable, more unique." Then we do whatever that is. The Green Cottage is art and antique filled, but not cluttered. It's presented like you are staying at your favorite aunt's beach cottage while she's away sailing the south seas, and she's given you the keys. We want our guests to feel like they've "come home."
