This cottage has a history of it's own! Built back in 1910, this was the original bait shop back when Highway One ran where Moss Landing Road is today. It was converted into a surfboard maker's shop back in the 1950's and 1960's. In the 1970's it was an art gallery, then antique store throughout the 1980's. It was the Moro Cojo Art gallery again in the 1990's and then converted into a small cottage for residence. Lots of history in these old redwood walls!
The house is located right on Moss Landing road and has it's own parking space in front. you don't have to walk past the owners or anyone else to get into the house, the entry is completely private. There is a lockbox, so no need to deal with owners about checking in or checking out.
Interaction with guests
We bought this unique property last year because the location in unbeatable. Only a few steps to the gorgeous white sand beaches that stretch for miles, the house itself is a waterfront property, with most of our acreage extending into the actual ocean slough itself! The property is a marine sanctuary, and is overflowing with sea life, it's like living in a national geographic nature documentary with the sea otters playing in front of the house, the great blue herons, egrets roosting in our trees and hundreds of other rare birds living in the water in front of our home. The house dates back to 1910. We love the history of this very truly unique home. We are a small family of husband and wife with 2 little boys. Our house is located behind the cottage, separated by a 8' tall fence. We respect your privacy and you probably won't even see us since the cottage is right in the road and you don't need to walk by us to get to the cottage, it is a separate unit and is only for vacation rental use, no one lives there.
Smoking outside is ok but use an ashtray please. Clean all dishes and take trash and recycling to the trash bins outside before leaving. Put all soiled towels and linens in a pile on the floor in the bathroom. Turn off heaters and lights before checking out. Leave door locked with key inside the closed lockbox upon leaving. No internet streaming, we are on satellite internet in downtown Moss Landing and have very limited bandwidth.
