“Absolutely perfect stay more than once,planning a trip in 2015.”

We have stayed in Karen's Cottage a couple of times. Once at on other place. We will use Karen every time we come by ourselves. We also have a 5lb Chihuahua we bring with us. It just feels like our home away from home. Get your own Olloliberry pie at Lynn's bakery and bake it yourself. Much better than going to the restaurant!

Cottage is well appointed with just about all that could be requested. Do think it's time for a new Kuereg (spelling) though. It really has seen a better life. Views are lovely and will probably return minus the 3 grandsons we had in package. Thanks Carol.

A pleasure to have you all as guests! The Keurig works fine (apparently, a previous guest had not followed the instructions and clogged it up) but, all is good~there is also another 10 cup coffeemaker in our place as well. Come back and visit anytime!

“Wonderful experience!”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had one of the most relaxing times in our lives. From the views( deer and ocean outside the window), to the comfort of the house and fresh coffee every morning, our stay could not have been any better. Karen and Earl are gracious and welcoming hosts. Highly recommend!

“Great getaway on Central Coast”

My boyfriend and I stayed at Karen's Cottage for three lovely days. The entire experience from booking (Karen is friendly and extremely responsive) to our stay was absolutely perfect. The cottage sits on the same property as the 'main' house but as others alluded to, it is completely private--after checking in, we experienced complete privacy and quiet. With an open floor plan, this place has upgraded amenities (new wood floors, remodeled bathroom, newer kitchen appliances, etc.) and a nice view of the ocean (although not quite walking distance to Moonstone Beach, not for us anyway).

If you're looking for an affordable and clean place with updated amenities and central to many local attractions, then don't look any further--Karen's Cottage is it! My BF and I are already talking about when we'll come back.
