“Home Away from Home”
Reviewed 25 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I spent 10 beautiful days at The Green Cottage. It truly became my home away from home.
The cottage has everything and more to make it a comfortable home. The views and scenery are fabulous from the waterfront patio. Its fun to do a puzzle and watch all the birds and wildlife from the kitchen table. A must stay if you are visiting Los Osos or any of the surrounding areas. I will be back for sure very soon.

I think Jayne is our "champion guest", staying with us now about 10 times. We love that she loves the Green Cottage on Morro Bay so much that she now calls it her home away from home.

“Pandora & Gary make you feel the cottage is your own”

Pandora & Gary make you feel the cottage is your own
★ ★ ★ ★ ★


We visited Morro Bay as part of our California vacation. It was our first long vacation in the USA as we live in United Kingdom. My husband and I travelled down from Sonoma and even though California has wonderful and stunning places to visit and stay we chose Morro Bay because of the 'Green Cottage'. Green Cottage once discovered never to be forgotten.

Before we got to this small but very impressive paradise Pandora & Gary communicated extremely well with us. Pandora had put provisions of freshly ground coffee, tea bags, cream, fruit, and various flavours of yogurt in the cottage as it was a bliss to make fresh cup of tea after settling in. We spent 5 nights at the cottage where we enjoyed the bay and some local vineyards that Pandora had organised for us. The cottage has everything that we needed. The Kitchen is fully equipped to cook any type of meal; the bedding is soft and very comfy. We very much like the decor and style of the cottage

The views throughout the day changed and were mesmerising but the sunsets were incredible! Green Cottage is not only clean, restful and comfy, romantic, but a very special and select escape. I highly recommend the cottage as it is jewel on the Californian coastal route. We will certainly return. Pandora, thank you for making our stay so wonderful. You and Gary are a perfect host.

“A Writer's Haven”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I recently spent a week curled up at the Green Cottage writing my first book. This space is perfection in every way; a quiet haven for refection where creativity can bloom. I spent my mornings on the deck overlooking Morro Bay with flocks of pelicans and the occasional kayaker as my only companions. There is attention to detail in the artful cottage decor, and beauty in every direction. The cottage is a short stroll to a nearby estuary, and 10 minutes driving distance to Montano de Oro state park with ocean views and lots of hiking trails. But in the end I found little reason to leave the comfort of my little home-away-from-home by the bay. A great place to recharge and fill your soul!

The Cottage seems to have a way of attracting very creative, artful people who are seeking something other than a getaway that includes loud TV football games with a cast of rowdy friends. It is the opposite! It is a peaceful and romantic guest hideaway for lovers ... lover of nature, art, thought, photography, writing, reading, wine, adventure, discovery, solitude and soul, but especially for those who love and nurture themselves and want the space that will allow that to easily happen. This writer spent the week immersed in nature and creative thought as she began her book. We have had famous photographers, writers and singer/songwriters all stay at the Cottage. They all claim it provides them the energy and peace to be creative. It must, because they keep coming back. Come see why.

“The Green Cottage On Morro Bay is Relaxing Perfection!”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

It is so rare to find that combination of lovely and comfortable, impressive and cozy, a place that feels like yours yet you have had to do none of the prep - you just walk in and look out the window and you are relaxing on *vacation* -- such is the Green Cottage on Morro Bay. The view is truly unrivaled... whether sunny and glorious, misty-hued and soft, on a night with a million stars and the lights of Morro Bay across the water. You can dine out on the patio and drink it all in, or from the dining table. Everything is cozy and comfortable, while being beautifully appointed... the kitchen has every tool you could want to cook a great meal, the linens are lovely, the decor is art-and-beach-and-cottage, and it all comes together to say relax. The hosts provide wonderful information about the area, things to do and see, and we did take the kayaks out on the bay for a fun trip over for espresso in a little bayside cafe, super fun- but really, with this view, why would you go anywhere? This is a wonderful treasure!

The Green Cottage has been in the family for over 60 years. When we renovated the kitchen and bathroom recently, we looked around the Cottage and asked ourselves, what can we do to make this the cutest, most comfortable, best appointed, art-filled cottage on the Central Coast? So, we gathered together family heirlooms and antiques, paintings by renown artist Elizabeth Tolley and photographs by nationally known outdoor/nature photographer George Lepp, plus handmade pottery, Romanian crystal goblets, pine needle baskets, a quilt made specifically for the Cottage, and much more. Our goal is for our guests to feel like they are staying at a favorite aunt's beach cottage while she is away, not just visiting a sterile rental devoid of personality and charm. Come see for yourself.

“Another stay in paradise...”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My husband and I have been vacationing on the central coast for almost 30 years now, and though there are many wonderful places to stay, once we discovered Green Cottage, it has become our 'home away from home.' We have coming to Green Cottage for about 5 years, and each time is better than the last. Pandora and Gary really make you feel as if the cottage is your own. We feel so at home. Our most recent trip was planned to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday, and we were pleasantly surprised to find a bottle of wine to help us celebrate, along with other treats that Pandora supplies for her guests, such as fresh ground coffee, cream, fruit, and yogurt. We spent 6 wonderful nights at the cottage enjoying the peaceful bay, kayaking, taking in a Jackson Brown concert at Vina Robles Winery in Paso Robles, dining at several wonderful restaurants, bike riding, taking walks around the inlet, etc. The sunsets were amazing! Green Cottage is a cozy, comfortable, clean, romantic, unique getaway. I highly recommend a stay there!

We are looking forward to this couple's return. They use their time here to explore, relax and enjoy friends. It's fun to watch! Our county has such an abundance of things to do and places to go, with hundreds of thousands of acres of undeveloped wide open spaces in between, it's just a treat to drive around. With a population under 300,000, San Luis Obispo (SLO) County gives a rural experience with all the amenities of the big cities -- without the congestion, traffic or noise. Whether you are looking for a world class concert or an old fashioned saloon, remote hiking trails with spectacular ocean views or a golf course with views that rival Pebble Beach, we have it. Come explore for yourself.
