Arroyo Grande House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Bathrooms. Fabulous views from unique, artistic, spacious home

Through the custom mahogany and stained glass double entry doors, lies the living area with its 33 foot high ceiling and wall of glass, overlooking the magnificent view of the valley below extending to the nearby beaches. Modern furnishings throughout the living area reflect space and light as the forefront of its design. Original art enhances the hand troweled plaster walls. The sunken living room offers ambiance and conversation. The travertine tiled dining area is open plan.

The kitchen is equipped with black galaxy granite counters, double stainless sinks, a deep fryer, convection oven, trash compactor, microwave and a stainless extractor over the range. All of the kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, as well as the curved staircase handrail, are custom made of Honduran mahogany with Peruvian walnut inlay.

Off of the kitchen, is the laundry room with washer/dryer and pantry. The stained glass back door leads to an outdoor deck, overlooking rolling hills dotted with oak trees and a tree topped view to the sea. The park sized outdoor play area is found down the steps under the oaks, but viewed from the house so as to be able to easily monitor the children.

On the ground floor is a large master bedroom with cedar walk in closet and en suite, finished in Turkish travertine tile and Indian rainforest marble with a sunken double tub with jets. A separate office and powder bath is also located on this floor. On the upper floor there are two double bedrooms and a full bathroom. The landing lounge is comfortably spacious with a stunning horizon view of the ocean to the west.

About Michael Laprade

Michael and Janice live in California and spend the winter there in their primary residence on the Central Coast. Since retiring, they live at their private island home, Honey Bee Island, in Canada’s 1,000 Islands during the summer months and then fly to their home on the Riviera in France in the spring. They love to travel!

Janice was a dental hygienist while Michael’s vocation was to spend 30 years in prison…eh, in administration. Their avocation was to develop and perform a full evening magic stage show in a theater built for it. They retired after raising their children but instead of downsizing, they chose to 'up size' and experience as many adventures as they could. Michael tackles any household DIY task that his bride thinks up and so their homes are rich in detail and in character to the region they are living in. He loves to play with his amphibious airplane while Janice prefers to paint and read on terra firma.

Their 5 children and 8 grandchildren are scattered from Seattle Washington to Los Angeles California to Munich Germany and parts in between.

Why Michael Laprade chose Central Coast California

This area is minutes from the beaches, dozens of wineries, the inland areas and half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles. We are only 90 minutes from Santa Barbara

What makes this house unique

The only way to experience this home is to be here. The privacy, the exclusive amenities and its exclusive location are superb. The spaciousness is incredible with a 33 foot high living room ceiling.

Once you experience it, you will want to return again and again

Interesting and fun!

  • 4 of 5

This house is definitely one of a kind, from its unique shape to its eclectic artwork display. The owners are definitely big fans of Houdini:) The house is very spacious and allows for a lot of people to stay in it and feel comfortable. Outdoor deck is also a really nice touch. Loved the fact that it has a washer and dryer which came in handy when we experienced a few wine spills.

The house was not as clean as we would have liked, but overall I think this house is a great place for outdoorsy people and the views cannot be beat. You feel like you are in the country, yet are not that far from town to get just about anything you need. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family!

Stunning House!

  • 5 of 5

It was a very unique and great experience! We just absolutely loved staying here over the weekend. Everything in this house was stunning and thoughtful. We were in awe! Whether is was the sitting area next to the fireplace or deck outside of it, everything has its charm. Everything was really classy.

Without a doubt we would certainly come back to stay here. This is by far one of the best places we've stayed. We highly recommend this place.

Michael was very responsive and accommodating to all our requests. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely property.

Quiet, unique, fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations! It was gorgeous, comfy, incredibly spacious, and just filled with beautiful art & collectible pieces. Just a magical experience! The one thing that would have been great, and it does look like it might have been there in the past, is an outdoor hot tub! The idea of sitting under the gorgeous night stars w/a glass of wine, in a hot tub would have made the trip 100% perfection. As it was, it was REAL close!! It could also use a couple screen doors (front & back) to make the beautiful breezes even more delicious. But over all, fabulous experience. We will definitely come back!

This vacation home was superb in every way!

  • 4 of 5

The house was simply fantastic! Large and unique, comfortably furnished and decorated with gorgeous art pieces throughout. It was better than I expected in terms of the large size. One or 2 things made it seem just a tiny bit dated (the front door could use some modernization - it took away from the uniqueness of the house) but otherwise, it was all very beautiful and well appointed. Our day of wine tasting ended w/a relaxing night of dining in by the fireplace. I would have liked to open the front & back doors for the beautiful breeze but I didn't want to let the bugs in. Maybe some nice screen doors would be a good addition. We would definitely come back for another quiet and restful get-away! We really loved it!!

Perfect location, space, view, & accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Everything from my pre-booking questions all the way through our last few minutes of our stay was perfect.

Both the owner and property manager are very kind, responsive, and accommodating. Before I booked, all of my questions were answered in a timely manner. Immediately after booking was confirmed all pertinent information was provided, and contacts were availed in case anything else came up.

The home itself is very unique, roomy, extremely comfortable, and clean. The property is spacious and private. Although you feel as if you are in your own world, the beach, the suburbs, and the shops, are a short drive down the road.

There really are no words to do this place justice. I definitely will consider returning on my next trip to the area.
