Overview

About the property

Our OutHouse is a very comfortable and architecturally pleasing two bedroom barn with full bath and gourmet kitchen.

The OutHouse was recently designed and constructed (circa 2006) to a great extent with high quality re-purposed materials. The OutHouse is very substantial, well insulated, boasts steel windows and doors.

The views and vibe are great and the property is ideally located in a rural setting between SLO and Avila Beach.

The patios, garden, bbq and outdoor shower and second 'half bath' located in our Garden Kitchen area are always appreciated by our guests...

The Perfect Rustic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to come to San Luis with another couple for our sons fraternity Mother's Day celebration and we rented the Outhouse for our stay. We had an amazing time and Jim and Kay were perfect hosts, accomodating in every way. The house is out in the country surrounded by nature, very peaceful and serene. The rustic nature of the house contributed to the feeling of total getaway. I left my job on Friday very stressed and came back on Monday feeling refreshed because of our surroundings for the weekend. I would highly recommend this house to anybody and we can't wait to stay again.

A fun, peaceful, and very unique place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to take a spontaneous trip to the San Luis Obispo area with our two kids for spring break. We had never been to SLO before, and this was the first time we had ever stayed in a rental home for a vacation. We ended up having a fantastic time at the OutHouse, and we would enthusiastically recommend it to all of our friends and family.

First off, the owners Jim and Kay are very nice and friendly people. Jim was very happy to give us suggestions for things to do and places to eat. He gives incredibly detailed and clear directions, and he showed us to this very neat and interesting hike to the ocean that we would never have found on our own! Jim and Kay have two very sweet dogs, Bernice and Stuart Little, who just roam around the ranch. My children (ages 10 and 12) said that the dogs were the best part of the trip. The dogs are so friendly and polite, and they would come over to say hello and be petted and loved on every time we were outside. When we roasted s'mores at the fire pit, the dogs came and hung out with us and played with the kids. If you are a dog person, having Bernice and Stuart Little around will enhance your stay! And if you are not a dog person, that's ok too, as the dogs are very respectful and won't jump on you. They will just wander off if they sense you are not interested. They barked at us when we first arrived, but the minute the kids got out of the car, they were wagging their tails at us like we'd known them forever.

As for the house, it's fantastic. The kids didn't want to leave. There's a pool table, ping pong table, basketball hoop, and 3 TVs. The kitchen is furnished with pots, pans, dishes, utensils, spices, and condiments. The stove is fancy! We counted over 30 places to sit. The barn is so unique and well designed with beautiful wood and funky metal. Everything is in excellent condition. The surrounding property is just so pretty and peaceful with lots of trees. My favorite part was the outdoor shower. You must try it, although once you shower outside, showering inside seems so boring and claustrophobic. The floors are all cement and can get cold, so bring thick socks or slippers. The beds are very cozy. One queen bed is nice and firm, the other queen bed is soft and squishy.

My family loved our stay here, and we hope that we will have a chance to come back. Thank you, Jim and Kay, for helping us make some fun and fond memories! --Christine, Andrew, and kids

Wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time for a girls weekend at the OutHouse! Despite the stormy weather, we were cozy with the wood burning stove and extra blankets in the house (even though it really wasn't ever very cold in the house). The beds were comfortable and so cozy, and the kitchen was wonderful. The dogs were so sweet and we loved spending time with them as well. We did have the power go out a couple times due to the storms, but Jim always checked on us and there were lanterns and candles ready in the house so we had no trouble. The setting is spectacular and we can't wait to come back!

Fantanstic Experience All Around

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property (Aka...See Camp Ranch). It was attractive to us because we had my son college basketball team in town playing a tournament and needed a large place to entertain, eat, and relax. Staying at "SEE CAMP RANCH" BARN was excellent experience from start to finish and exactly what we needed, and as we had hoped.

The property is excellent, fun, and perfect for large groups. Jim, the owner was great to work with, very helpful and attentive. Jim and Kay went way out of their way to help me prepare for dinner the first night. They picked a menu that everyone enjoyed, enough to food to feed 21 young men twice! I really don't know how I would have pulled off such a great meal without their help! The property is built with a lot of thought and talent. The boys were able to play a few games of pool and/or ping pong before the coach had them on the half court to do walk throughs. Beatrice and Stuart Little, the friendly dogs, were there to greet the myself and the boys everytime. We didn't get the chance to experience the fire pit, however it was there ready with plenty of firewood! The Barn itself is beyond amazing! The main room held us all comfortably, Plenty of seating. Beds were comfortable and rooms with spacious. We were all impressed with accomodations.

Overall I cannot recommend this property any higher! The place is beautiful, rustic yet modern and has everything you could possibly want or need.

We had amazing long weekend in this great Barn... in a great town....with great group of young men. We can't wait to come back to SEE CAMP RANCH

Thanks Jim!
