Your SLO getaway awaits in San Luis Obispo, Ca. in this 3500 sq. ft. 5 bedroom home with a large secluded, enchanted garden and patio. Whether you are seeking a romantic couples getaway or a fun family vacation, this is the destination for you!
5 bedrooms with all NEW Cal King pillow top mattresses. The house has two separate wings, 5 bedrooms (two master bedrooms), two livingrooms, and three full bathrooms. The patio area has plenty of seating and quiet, cozy nooks. You won't have to worry about parking because there is plenty of space.
While sitting in the garden with your wine, don't be surprised if you find yourself watching wild cotton tail bunnies, wild hare, humming birds, quail, and small finches, as well as our two 18 year old resident tortoises, George and Tommy.
Oprah says, ''San Luis Obispo is the Happiest City in America', and I must say that we agree.
Built by our family in 2000, this solar powered home allowed us to host our large family and still have room for our friends who often stayed with us. We have lived in SLO for over 30+ years, and we can't imagine living anywhere else. Now that our kids are grown and out of the house, we relocated and turned our beautiful home into this vacation rental. We know you'll enjoy the lovingly cared for property as much as we do.

this beautiful home is conveniently located between the local vineyards, and once you arrive, do not be surprised if you spend most of your time wine tasting in this beautiful house and garden more than the local wineries.
Excellent house with plenty of space for our party size. The house was very neatly up kept with furnishings that made us feel right at home. Spare blankets and pillows were also conveniently placed in every room for additional guests.
We had a great experience. Nice house, very roomy for different groups to break off to talk, play games, watch TV etc. Great kitchen area that became the gathering area.
We had a great time. It was nice to see the lights around the trees when we arrived at night in the dark. Easy access with key code. We will definitely be back.
I recently stayed at the Turtle House with my family and friends and had a great time there! This place has plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for the 11 of us. The Cal King pillow top mattress in each room makes it very easy to have a good night's sleep. Also, the spacious kitchen and dining area makes cooking and eating inside The Turtle House extra enjoyable. While we were there, we had a great time hanging out in the garden, too as the garden is very tranquil and has lot of sitting areas. Watching George and Tommy, the two turtles that reside in the garden, is another fun activity. The fact that this place is very close to downtown SLO and Pismo Beach is another plus. However, the most impressive aspect about this house is that the owner is very responsive. Yvette called me within 5 fives from my submitting an inquiry about the house and that's so amazing! She had made choosing which vacation house to stay at a breeze. I strongly recommend the Turtle House!
We used the Turtle house for a company retreat of 13 people, and it worked out great. Very close to both Pismo Beach and the center of San Luis Obispo. Quick communication and accurate listing. Looked better in person! Highly recommended.
This house is amazing! The "ranch style" layout is great for a large group. The kitchen and main living room in the middle and the bedrooms on either side means the early birds can enjoy their coffee while others can sleep in!
The location is great! 1 minute away from wine tasting! 10 minutes away from the beach! The grounds are beautiful. Unfortunately it was freezing, literally!, at night while we were there and it was too cold for the turtles to be there with us. We will definitely be coming back!
The owners and managers of Turtle House are super efficient, friendly and polite. The home was exactly as advertised with every thought put into the details. We were comfortable and never got in each other's way - the readers and the movie watchers had their own space. Payment was easy and the refund of the security deposit easy and quick. Excellent holiday. Beautiful property.
This house is awesome and I hope we can come back again next year.
We had a group of 12 adults and there was plenty of room for us in the house and they even have a table we could all share a meal together at. The Tortoises are awesome as well.
