About Mike and Maggie Van Dame

We love outdoor sports such as hiking, kayaking, bird watching gardening, etc. We also love to visit the beach and taste wine.

Mike and Maggie Van Dame purchased this house in 2013

Why Mike and Maggie Van Dame chose Paso Robles

This property is a classic a Paso Robles charmer and has located us closer to our daughter, son-in-law and new grandson who live in Paso Robles and to our family in the southern half of the state. This is the perfect house for all of us to get together at various times during the year. Our family loves wine and for years we have made wine tasting a family tradition. We have visited all California wine tasting areas and love the central coast area the best.

What makes this house unique

This property caught our eye the minute we saw its sunny exterior. The large covered front porch is a perfect spot to sit and relax in the afternoon. We enjoy watching the deer walk by (please do not approach the deer or feed them). This home makes you feel you are in a rural area when you are in walking distance to downtown. This is also a great location for bicyclists as Pacific Ave turns into Peachy Canyon Rd about 1/4 mile west of the house.

There are several outdoor entertainment areas and patios. The backyard is completely fenced for privacy.

The inside of the home has a unique layout as there is a bedroom and bathroom at each side of the house separated by the living room.

There is on and off street parking along our property line only. Room for 3 cars.

We have also installed a whole house water softening treatment system.

This home is a classic. We love it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great house! Clean and comfortable with a large private backyard with BBQ. The perfect place to relax after wine tasting. Everything you need to cook a meal is provided (great rice cooker). We couldn't have had a better time. We can tell the owner's take pride in this property and they treat it like their away from home. We will be back.

We Will be Back

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this property and once again we loved it! Very clean and everything you need. I appreciate that when you arrive at the house, you do not need to run and buy things such as: soap, lotion, shampoo, toilet paper, paper towel, etc. there is a sufficient amount for several days. The kitchen is nicely stocked too if you choose to cook. The outdoor space in the back feels secluded and has a very nice seating area.

This house is perfect for 2 couples, each bedroom has its own adjacent bathroom and the bedrooms are separated by a large living room, allowing everyone their privacy.Very close to downtown Paso and centrally located to many, many wineries. Highly recommend and will be staying again when in Paso Robles.

Thank you Maggie & Mike for another great stay.

Perfection in Paso Robles

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for us. We loved the backyard, the front porch, the kitchen, everything and the location. This is our third visit to this home. It really does feel like we are coming home, every time we come through the front door. The owners are so accommodating..... We loved our afternoon walks through the neighborhood, surrounded by wildlife. We cannot wait for our next visit.

Lovely bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Mike & Maggie's lovely home three times now and every time we return to their home we find it clean, comfy, warm and welcoming. This is a perfect home for 4 people each bedroom has it's own bathroom. All bedding, linen, towels and kitchen essentials are top notch. The beauty of where the home is located is that it is right off Peachy Canyon Rd which takes you right up to the wineries! We always pick up food at Trader Joe's in Templeton. After a few hours of wine tasting we head home light up the BBQ grill and open a bottle or two of wine and enjoy the patio dining. We will be back!

this house is in an excellent location - easy access to wineries and downtown. i loved that the two bedrooms were at opposite ends of the house, which added some privacy. we ate every meal outside (tables in two different sections of the gardens). very convenient bbq. we will definitely return!

Wine tasting is a favorite pass-time of our family and we never tire of the selection of wineries in the Paso Robles area. We are located on Pacific Ave at the gateway to Peachy Canyon Rd just a short drive to the west side wineries. There are a many other wineries in the Paso Robles area, each offering its own unique wines and amenities.

The California Mid-State Fair is a huge attraction in Paso Robles. The fair dates for next year are July 14 through July 27, 2014. There are plenty of great events and music for all to enjoy. You can take the shuttle to the fair which is in walking distance of Casa Del Sole.

We enjoy Friday night concert in the park downtown while sitting on the grass (bring a blanket). Wine and beer is available for purchase. And if you prefer grab a table at one of the great restaurants with outdoor seating and delight in the perfect meal while listening to music..

We love the outdoors and would like to encourage you to visit Montana De Oro State Park and the state parks of the San Luis Obispo coast. You will find Hearst Castle and many other amazing parks and attractions in this area.

There is so much to enjoy in this area and we will be adding more favorite places in the future.
