Nipomo House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 2 bath pet-friendly home next to Blacklake Golf, near Pismo Beach

This rustic-but-cozy guest house is at the back of our 2 1/2 acre country property. Located behind the main house, the cottage has it's own private access drive from the road. Tall pine trees grace and shade the cottage's private, fenced garden. There is an abundance of trees, plant life and wildlife on and around our property. Enjoy the large kitchen, watch cable on the 50'' plasma TV, soak in the jacuzzi tub, BBQ on the private deck, read in the flower garden, wash your laundry, and let your dogs play in the fenced yard. Remember us at 'nipomocottage dot com.'

About Owner

We're a quiet, friendly family w/ 2 kids, 2 cats, and a silly dog. We're busy living life on the front side of the property and will leave you to your privacy.

Why Owner chose Central Coast California

You will hear only the peeping of quail in the morning, the chirping of birds in the day, and the hooting of owls at night (and coyote howls). Warm sunny days are freshened by a gentle breeze from the pacific and fragranced by the surrounding pines and flowers.

What makes this house unique

Nipomo is known for having one of the most stable climates in the world. You can expect most days to be sunny and pleasant. Winters are usually the same as summers - around 70 degrees. There is sometimes a pretty mist in the mornings. From late October thru February the monarch butterflies migrate across the property.

Excellent accommodation in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Both the dog friendly aspect and the golf accessibility were irrelevant to us however we rate this holiday accommodation in Nipomo as the best we have stayed in during any of our trips to California and the U.S.A.

Despite being described as a one bedroom cottage the accommodation is very spacious and includes everything one could need. There is a large garage with internal access directly into the property, a laundry room, two shower rooms, a sunken bath, a large and comfortable bedroom, spacious living room and very well equipped kitchen. Outside is a large private decked area which is equally well positioned for sun during the day and star gazing at night. Despite sharing the site with the owner, Suzy, there is no problem with privacy as she is available to help but remains very discreet.

Although relatively rural the property is only three or four minutes drive from 'Willow', a very pleasant local restaurant/delicatessen and 'Vons', the local well stocked supermarket, is only about a ten minute drive away. Pismo Beach and the village of Arroyo Grande are within easy (10-15 mins) reach while the delightful town of San Luis Obispo is only a little over half an hour to the north and whale watching trips from Morro Bay can easily be accessed within about forty minutes. To the south Santa Barbara and Ventura are a little further but not too far away down the 101 to be visited for day trips.

All in all an excellent and beautifully located property which we recommend unreservedly, but please don't try and book it for next September as, if she's still there, we aim to go's that good.

Nipomo Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a couple or a small family. First impression - fantastic. Larger than I expected - the photos online didn't do it justice - spacious and clean. If you prefer a bit of elbow room to a small hotel room, this place is an excellent option. We were five adults (myself, my husband and our 3 adult children) coming up to Nipomo for a long week-end to attend a wedding. Only one bedroom, but two baths and great layout for separation. The sleeper sofa is firm, as is the rollaway bed, but not uncomfortable. We planned to eat some meals in and the kitchen was large and well-equipped. The coffee maker didn't work, but Suzy had a new one in place within hours. I could have used some instructions how to use the stove - I had a little trouble trying to preheat the oven - but my son was able to figure it out. We spent a bit of time on the patio where just enough shade and cool breezes kept it at a comfortable temperature even though it was hovering around 100 degrees in the sun when we were there. Beautiful mature pines out back gave off that beautiful incense-like scent. Even though the cottage is on the same property as the owner's house, it is private and quiet. The stars at night were amazing. Other than attending the wedding, we visited Hearst Castle (about an hour north) and Solvang (45 minutes south), and visited the local beaches for surfing. The location feels remote, but is very close to the 101 (3 minutes) and the center of Nipomo with restaurants and other amenities (grocery, Starbucks). We checked out Jocko's for steak - popular place, good food and very casual - definitely gives you the local flavor. I would absolutely recommend this property for comfort, convenience and all-around esthetics. Incidentally, the Dana Powers Ranch in Nipomo is a very cool wedding venue!

Wonderful cottage, great service, relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here for the 2015 Thanksgiving holiday. We were able to bring our dog [ mind you he weighs in at 96 lbs] The cottage has a garage, washer and dryer, and spacious floor plan. Kitchen was clean, well equipped and excellent seating. We were very comfortable. The dog had a very nice yard to run in and got to see what chickens looked like [ he is a city dog] . The owners were very responsive to communication. I am looking forward to staying there again if and when the opportunity presents itself. I would recommend it to anyone that wanted a relaxing get away.

Perfect dog friendly Nipomo location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely no fuss, comfortable stay in the cottage. The owner is very responsive to all communications and easy to work with. The cottage is ideally located from 101 and shopping while maintaining a country feel of privacy and quiet. We stayed there while visiting family in Trilogy, one mile away.

The amenities in the house are excellent and has a large great room with a very comfortable fold out bed and nearby bath with shower. Master suite is large with ensuite bath and walk in closet.

The back yard has a tightly enclosed yard off the back deck and cleanup materials for your pet.

We loved it and look forward to another stay in the future. Thanks Suzy.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at this VRBO rental and my husband and I, plus our small dog, really enjoyed our stay.

The house was very comfortable and we were pleasantly surprised at how open and spacious it was. Everything was clean and stocked very well. The owners were very nice and accessible to answer any questions we had during our stay.

We will definitely be staying here again!

The house is located about 5 miles due east from the ocean and 1 mile off Hwy 1. Willow Road exit off Hwy 101 is a straight 3 mile drive to the cottage. The cottage is less than 1,000 ft from Blacklake golf course. It feels like a country setting, surrounded by trees and fields.
