This rental was very private - separate entrance, with a great view of the ocean from the street right outside the rental. The unit was immaculate and had everything I needed for my 3 evenings. The neighborhood is very safe and quiet, with a wonderful beach walk only 5-10 walk away. I’ll definitey be back!
Laura’s studio is a gem. Nothing missing, everything brand new. The bed is excellent, and the shower perfect. Laura is charming and welcoming, and she made us feel like friends visiting. Morro Bay is a peaceful seaside little town, with lots to see. We enjoyed Hearst Castle, the elephant seals, and quite a few of the lovely eateries around the area. We definitely recommend Laura’ Sanctuary by the Sea, and we will be back.
I relished my 10-day stay in Laura's Sanctuary by the Sea. Attending an event and travel-packed wedding/vacation for international visitors, I was always SO relieved to relax in the cool and quiet privacy of this space. It scored a solid 10 on my 3 most important requirements: quiet; comfortable bed and pillows; and a hot shower with ample pressure. (No hotel has ever offered me a better selection of pillows, a more inviting mattress or a more invigorating shower.)
Laura prepared this space with careful consideration; I lacked for nothing and noticed many thoughtful extras-- from a fully-equipped picnic basket to digital accessories to enjoy my music. She is a pleasant host, fun to talk to, and was very respectful of my space. She even has an amazing cat who understands three languages and performs tricks.
I heartily recommend the Sanctuary by the Sea as well as Morro Bay for an relaxing and wonder-filled seaside experience.
The studio was everything it said it was. It was very clean and close to beach. No tv or stereo, which I didn't realize when booking. But we still had a good experience.
The location is quite peaceful situated far back in a residential area. There is not much around in the immediate few blocks close to the house but within a 15min walk there is a Brewery, Mexican Restaurant, and local dive Bar. The embarcadero area was amazing with lots of shops and great food...about a 10-15min drive. Definitely, an ideal location if you have access to a vehicle.
Laura was an amazing host and checked in periodically to make sure the stay was comfortable. The rental was well stocked with the essentials, great attention to detail and necessities for guests. Very well planned out. Great Kitchenette. Floors are all wood and it tends to be a little loud especially if people are walking upstairs or in the next room, but overall very peaceful! Highly recommend!
