MOUNTAIN TOP | BEST VIEW IN SLO!

San Luis Obispo House Rental Photos and Description

2+ Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

SAN LUIS OBISPO: “THE HAPPIEST PLACE IN AMERICA”

The 'Irish Hills House' at the top of Prefumo Canyon has the Best View in SLO with stunning 180-degree views stretching from ocean, valley, mountain and cityscape. This spot is really about the incredible view and guests say that the photos do not do it justice.

Our pet-friendly vacation rental has two bedrooms with a king bed downstairs and three queen beds upstairs. We store an additional reserve queen size futon, roll away bed and a 2014 'Pack n' Play' for babies. There are bathrooms on each level, a large outfitted modern kitchen, potbelly stove for cozy nights and a large outdoor deck. There are great views from every window!

The coastal retreat halfway between LA and SF is a short 15 minute scenic drive to downtown SLO (Thursday Night Farmer’s Market, restaurants, nightlife etc.) and beautiful Avila Beach (spectacular beach, pier, shops, wineries, etc). You are in a serene and peaceful setting, but not too far from all the action!

We are on 8 mountain top acres with world class views, hikes and wildlife right outside your door. Barbecue, share a meal and wine on the deck or picnic down by the raised garden beds. We invite our guests to enjoy fresh vegetables and eggs from the gardens and henhouse, so help yourself! In addition to our chickens, we have a pet tortoise named 'Walter' and a Koi Pond in front of the Irish Hills House.

The vacation rental is well suited to romantic & girls getaways, family friendly & cal poly parents stays, adventure seekers & coastal journeys.

This is a dedicated VRBO, which is professionally cleaned before each guest's arrival with clean and fresh, sheets and towels. The house is maintained in pristine condition in preparation to offer a 'hotel-clean' experience amongst breathtaking mountain-top views in nature and tranquility.

The Irish Hills House is across a deck from our main home. We respect boundaries and the experience is intimate and free of distraction.

See you soon!

Anna and Ryan

Guestbook comments from the owner
Ryan and Anna were wonderful hosts. They were very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed for the stay. The location and view is truly amazing. It was definitely worth the drive up the mountain. Next time we are in SLO, we will not hesitate to contact Ryan and Anna.

Hi World!

Anna and I enjoy traveling and hosting people at our beautiful vacation rental. We live in San Luis Obispo, California where Anna is an organic farmer and I am an entrepreneur.

We enjoy exploring new places and meeting new people.

Sincerely,

Anna & Ryan.

Ryan & Anna purchased this house in 2008

This home has the most spectacular view in San luis Obispo. I had a home in Big Sur and this was comparable to one of the world's great view sheds (Big Sur).

The Irish Hills Home provides a unique opportunity to access views and experiences which are inaccessible.

Amazing location, superb apartment

  • 5 of 5
Irish Hill House was a real treat for our family of 4 after a long drive. Amazing views, so much space and so comfortable and clean. Ryan was helpful and welcoming and we only wish we could have stayed longer. Top tip - go whale watching with sub Sea tours in morro bay.

Enjoyed the Stay

  • 4 of 5
It really seemed like we were on top of the world. The view and sunsets were spectacular when not to overrun by the fog. It is very centralized and therefore we were able to do many things. We visited the Hearst Castle, saw the sea lions at San Simeon, played on the beach, put our gum in Bubble Gum Alley and even drove a bit north for a train ride through the Redwoods. The condo itself was nice and cozy and accommodated all seven of us just fine. The "lean to" was exactly as described (a closet) and the upstairs bathroom was kind of awkward, but we managed not to bump our heads on the sloping ceiling. The only problem we encountered were the ants that invaded us on our third day. The kids really enjoyed playing with all the dogs (four of them), the turtle, the koi fish and they even got to see a real live tarantula crawling on the wall. We had fresh eggs and onions almost every morning from the chickens and the garden in the yard below. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this place to my Friends and family. Thank you, Ryan and Anna for being such great hosts and for making us feel right at home.

This might be what heaven looks like.

  • 5 of 5
This property is beautiful, well-maintained, and so perfect for a nice, quiet getaway. The owner is so friendly and really made us feel welcome, and left us alone to enjoy his place. We had 7 people, 4 up and 3 down, and everyone was comfortable. The view of the Rock is spectacular and sunsets are amazing way up there.

Bonus for us as dog lovers: Gino and Bandit, 2 golden retrievers who live up the road, came to play and visit every day. We fell in love with them and even got them new balls to play with. Super sweet pups.

Also, the Ghirardelli chocolate on the pillow is a nice touch :) . I enthusiastically recommend this home.

Owner's Response: Hosting Moira's family makes me consider a trip to the South. You guys were all so great. Moira, thank you for the idea of the room divider, as you expected, our guests love it.

Gorgeous, relaxing retreat during our wedding

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I chose to stay at this property as a beautiful, relaxing mountaintop getaway for the days leading up to our wedding. The pictures don't do this place justice...the views of the ocean and the entire SLO basin are breathtaking! We are so happy we picked this place as our wedding retreat, it made our wedding weekend that much more magical and memorable. Ryan greeted us on the first day with a basket of fresh eggs from the chickens on the property and could not have been nicer or more accommodating when we forgot our checkout time on the last day (oops!!). We only wish we could have spent more time just sitting on the deck looking at that gorgeous view...we'll just have to come back to spend more time here! A truly unforgettable experience, we could not recommend this place more highly!

Fine house. Stunning views & hilltop air.

This is a beautiful property in an amazing location with views for miles and miles over the hills around St Louis Obispo and even out to the coast. The house appears quite spacious and is generally very well equipped.
Ryan and Anna were extremely welcoming and were very easy to communicate with. They encouraged us to use the balcony pictured in their main photo, even though it seemed to belong more to their own accommodation than to the rental house. The same applied to their gas barbecue. They were away the weekend we stayed, so it was easy for us to take them at their word.
As a family of five, we found the sleeping facilities more than adequate. However, the second upstairs bedroom is essentially a large box-room and needs a window in the roof to provide natural light and ventilation. Given the otherwise generous standard of fixtures and fittings, we were surprised not to have access to a washing machine. If that was because of the drought conditions we would have accepted a frank explanation.
However, these points are just minor suggestions for improvement and certainly would not prevent us booking again. I cannot imagine that we could have stayed anywhere more special in the area. Feeling trusted also added greatly to the enjoyment of our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Frank,
Thank you for the wonderful review and feedback. I think it is time to purchase a washer & dryer for the rental. We have had a few other requests, so I think it is time! Hope you visit us sometime in the future!

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5
This rental was just as amazing as it sounds- it has gorgeous views and it feels like a little slice of heaven! It is so relaxing, peaceful, has a VERY COMFORTABLE KING BED, and makes you feel right at home! Ryan and Anna are such easy going people and really keep up the elegance, beauty, and cleanliness of the rental space and property. I would highly recommend this rental to couples, families, or a group of friends. The views are breathtaking and I really agree it is the best view in SLO! The owners are two of the nicest people you will ever meet and more than accommodating! :)

USA Today calls San Luis Obispo 'The Happiest Place on earth'. The coastal retreat half way between LA and SF is ideal - a short 15-minute scenic drive to downtown SLO (Thursday Night Farmer’s Market, restaurants, nightlife etc.) or beautiful Avila Beach (spectacular beach, pier, shops, wineries, etc). Outdoor recreational activities are everywhere!
