About the property

Welcome! Our new vacation rental awaits you in the beautiful Arroyo Grande hills. Great for a quiet couple's getaway or for an entire family to enjoy together.

This clean and quaint house is very private, with no neighbors adjacent to you, and is located on a 5-acre parcel with its own separate access (driveway).

The house is 1,200 sqft and offers 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, an open floor plan in the living, dining, and kitchen areas, AND an impeccably well-maintained hot tub!!

The large master bedroom has a king-sized bed and its own en suite bathroom with a tub/shower combo. The second bedroom is also quite large and has one full-sized bed and a sturdy, wooden bunk bed with 2 twin beds and lots of storage. There is also a nice, clean futon in the living room that can be used as a bed. The second bathroom is in the hallway with easy access from the rest of the house and the hot tub. There is also a washer and dryer in the hall between the bedrooms.

Both bedrooms have their own TVs and there is a large flat screen TV in the living room. All TVs have satellite service and a DVR. The house is also equipped with DSL/WiFi.

In the private and peaceful backyard there is a clean, multi-jetted hot tub to relax in under the stars. You will probably hear owls at night.

The kitchen is open to the dining area through an open counter/bar area and has 2 bar stools so that you are festive at all times even when in the kitchen. The kitchen is well appointed with a dishwasher, microwave, electric stove and all the other expected amenities.

A propane bbq is located in the front yard so you can barbecue and watch the horseshoe game being played below! Also, this comfortable home has plenty of room by the driveway to park your boat or RV.

We are centrally located and only 3.5 miles from the village of Arroyo Grande with lots of fun shops, restaurants, and wine-tasting rooms. Don't forget the Arroyo Grande Farmer's Market every Saturday from 12:00 noon to 2:30.

We are located 7 miles from 7 world-class wineries: Talley, Laetitia, Wolff, Tangent, Edna Valley, Chamisal, Tolosa, etc. Fun!

We are located only 6 miles from Lopez Lake and 6 miles from Pismo Beach. Lopez Lake has water slides for the kids and fishing and of course boating.

This house will give you no choice but to relax and recuperate.

Please give us a call at (phone number hidden) and ask for Richard or my wife Christina.

There is an additional cost of $20 per head after 8 people. Thank you and cheers!

About Richard and Christina

I am a general contractor and Christina is an archaeologist. We work hard in our careers and know how important it is to find a clean, comfortable place to relax. So we are proud to offer our vacation rental to you. We love living here on the Central Coast and are happy to share our knowledge of the area with you. We are personable and want to make sure you have a great time - we are available anytime to answer your questions!

Richard and Christina purchased this house in 2007

Why Richard and Christina chose Arroyo Grande

We first discovered this property during a camping trip in the area. I, Richard, have lived almost all of my life in the country at the far western part of the Bay Area. My wife, Christina, has lived most of her life in Pasadena and then moved to San Francisco where we met. We feel that this is one of the best climates in all of California. We saw what we wanted and took the leap that we have never second guessed. We hope you will agree when you visit.


What makes this house unique

One of the greatest benefits of our area is that there's plenty to enjoy without the hassles of traffic. The Village of Arroyo Grande just 3 miles west of us is a great place to get dinner, stroll around or just have coffee and relax. There is at least one wine tasting room and a wine bar. The ocean, piers and Lake Lopez are also great destinations. Not to mention Avila beach and The Avila hot springs with a well heated swimming pool. Avila also has a farmers market on friday evenings. Great fun with an incredible ocean front. You are also 10 miles from San Luis Obispo with lots to offer including it's farmers market on thursday evenings.

Quiet, Private and Tranquil....really!

  • 3 of 5

The initial photo is not at all what this place looks like. There is no grass and a little more dated than it appears. It is definitely 'retro', but very clean! It is in the country, so a bit dusty and dirty, but really a lovely tranquil get-away for a couple days. The beds were comfortable, the living space quite adequate. The water pressure could be improved, but everyone got clean and doing the dishes just took a little longer. We appreciated the large water bottle left for us, too! There were extra bath towels, TP, and paper towels, too. One draw back- since it was Thanksgiving weekend, we did some cooking, and had to improvise measuring utensils.

All in all, it was a lovely respite from the craziness with our extended family.

Thank you so much!

We really enjoyed our stay at your vacation rental. It was the perfect location, since we had a wedding at Biddle Regional Park. I loved how kid friendly the house was and how you had Disney movies, games, and enough space for the entire family!

Secluded and private, the house itself was very clean and well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

My 10 week old grandson slept very nicely with his parents in the master bedroom. It is at the opposite side of the house from the living area. My kids and I were able to visit and talk without disturbing him. The hot tub was a very relaxing and welcome plus to our visit. We will definitely keep this house in mind when we need a place to stay when here.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Really loved how quickly Richard responded to all my messages and with a friendly attitude. When my friends and I arrived at the house, to our surprise, we were greeted by the neighbor's dog. She was extremely friendly which made the visit all the more merrier. The house itself is a lot bigger than I had anticipated from looking at the pictures. All basic kitchen supplies and amenities are provided which makes things convenient. Staying at this location was definitely a good change of scenery with so many places to go to nearby. The homeowners leave lots of suggestions for you to go to so definitely check that out. However some things need to be updated around the house but I've already informed Richard about that so it can only get better from here. Overall, I would recommend this place, it's worth a visit.

Private getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property. Our daughter was graduating from Cal Poly and we had a great time exploring the town of Arroyo Grande. Everything was as stated in the explanation of the property. We did some hiking around the area (lots of trails!) We would come back to this property again.
