“Every house has a story, carries within it its own history, shaped by the people who lived, laughed, loved and played there. I invite you to visit and become a part of mine.”
~ The Green Cottage on Morro Bay
The Green Cottage is a vintage beach house that sits at the water’s edge at the southern end of Morro Bay on California’s Central Coast. It is a romantic vacation rental for two, beautifully refurbished and filled with art, antiques and hand-made quilts. It offers comfort, privacy, solitude and views that go on forever.
It is the perfect hideaway at the end of a small peninsula tucked away in a quiet residential area of Los Osos. Our part of California is off the beaten path and we like it that way. We live our lives a little slower than the rest of the world. That gives us time to see more of what there is to see and to experience more of the things that are authentic and meaningful — all far, far away from fast-paced big-city lives.
Life is short. Get away.
Enjoy a glass of award-winning wine as you sit quietly on the deck overlooking the shimmering waters of Morro Bay. Watch the shorebirds feed along the water’s edge while the sun slips silently into blazing colors on the horizon.
Everyone needs time, space and quiet to refresh and recharge, a place to get away from an increasingly high-wired, hyper-connected world. Escape the noise and chaos of the busy world. Here. Stay at the Green Cottage, and disconnect! It can be a digital detox or some quiet time with someone special to explore all that is around you and all that is within you. It can be an opportunity to reset the way you experience time and remind you of the wonders of nature — right outside your door. It can be a time for action and adventure in an undiscovered coastal paradise or one of quiet solitude for reflection and renewal.
