Amazing house and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5
My Mother, 2-year old son, and I had the best time at Jim and Kay's "Outhouse." Jim and Kay were wonderful hosts and the house is amazing! We loved its rustic and cozy feel and my son loved the poor and ping pong tables and the outside basketball hoop. It is a fabulous spot for families! We can't wait to go back.

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5
This barn is all about character. If you're looking to get away from it all, this is the place to go! Close enough to SLO for a lunch or dinner, but not necessary. The barn has all of the amenities! Jim and Kay were really communicative in advance and were available while we stayed. I will be coming back!

Rain Box - Awesome!

We stayed in the Outhouse for 5 nights, had a family celebration and used all the facility during our stay. The home was welcoming, the beds were comfortable, the outside shower a great experience. We cooked, played and had the best family time! Jim and Kay are very gracious host.

Excellent Hideaway Experience

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here during our family of four SF-LA road trip with 7-10yo kids. Looking to get away from the touristy hotels in the area, we wanted a place that was comfortable and private, and this place gave us that and more in spades!

Located in a secluded canyon, the location offers great privacy with great views of the canyon and nearby hills while only being 10-15 minutes away from Avila Beach and local and big-box shopping.

The outhouse building itself has been recently built with a rustic and charming theme that puts many trendy Brooklyn restaurants to shame. The building is well built, and looks and feels very clean. It's thoughtfully designed with weathered metal panels and metal framed windows and doors that offers ample separation against the elements while making the place look amazing. The main living area has a grand, open feel, while the two bedrooms are located opposite to each other to offer some privacy. They did a great job in designing the seating space by the pool table with large, metal double doors that leads to a charming, secluded outside seating area.

With the Direct TV, wifi, pool table, piano, basketball hoop, table tennis, wood burning bbq and firepit, there is a lot to do when you're not at the beach or taking in the serene, seclusive landscape. (our kids have gotten a lot better at pool)

The nice owner couple are attentive, but are also very respectful of your privacy. There are also three happy, adorable dogs on the property that would love your attention;)

All amenities were available and worked great. We stayed in the middle of August but inside was always comfortable. Grounds were well kept.

All in all this is a truly unique, thoughtfully decorated and designed building that doesn't compromise on comfort that is situated in a great private location. Would love to stay here again!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5
We have three kids ages 9-17 and our youngest had a soccer tournament in SLO. As we pondered our options (hotel room, vrbo, etc) we thought we'd give "the Outhouse" a try. My wife booked the details with the owner which included cleaning fee, etc. and managed to convince me it was worth the slight premium over the hotel option.

The Outhouse is located about 15 minutes off the 101 in a lush canyon. You really feel like you are away from it all. The canyon is cool and quiet.

We were met by the owners and their three incredibly social dogs who reside in the house just below the Outhouse. We didn't see them again until we left but it was nice to know they were there in case we needed something.

The Outhouse is an eclectic place; the owner has a ornamental steel background and he clearly put his heart into the structure and surrounding works like the BBQ, wood-fired oven, fire pits, etc. They did an imaginative job repurposing discarded furniture (e.g. File Cabinet into utensils holder) and the whole family found the place fascinating.

What was coolest was that each of our kids enjoyed the property and had enough privacy/space/diversion (basketball, ping pong, grill, Direct TV, 4Square) that they were genuinely bummed out they had to leave.

My daughter left her i-touch in her sheets and the owner sent it right back to us.

Constructively, there is not much to offer, except that living in an "Outhouse" has its trade-offs; it's basically a big barn, so privacy is limited within the structure. Like that's not a factor in a hotel room!

Summing up, to a person our family was delighted with the whole experience. It is very likely we will find our way there again and a certainty we will recommend the Outhouse to our friends and family.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
This location is an absolute gem in the heart of one of the most beautiful areas in SLO. Nestled in a quaint valley between San Luis Obispo and Avila Beach the property has a rustic vibe with a modern twist. The "bungalow" provides all the amenities of a resort with the laid back feel of being home. The grounds are well maintained and the views of the surrounding hills make this a relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of town. Stay and watch the sunset while sitting around the custom fire pit, it's breathtaking! We would stay here again in a heart beat!
