About Ed Kurtz

Thanks for checking out our newly constructed private Casita. Bernie and I love living in the magical Edna Valley region and are thrilled to now be able to share this experience with our guests.

Ed Kurtz purchased this house in 2013

Why Ed Kurtz chose Central Coast California

Located right in the middle of our vineyard, you will have amazing views of the grapes from every window of the Casita. This is one of the best locations in Edna Valley, with less than a ten minute drive from downtown San Luis Obispo, the Village of Arroyo Grande and the ocean in Pismo Beach.

What makes this house unique

This is the perfect place to escape your daily routine!

Lovely casita in the center of a beautiful vineyard!

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression of the casita began before we ever arrived, with very helpful and courteous pre-trip communications with the owner Ed Kurtz. I felt a sense of ease and comfort about our decision to book the casita and looked forward to what I believed would be an enjoyable experience and we were not disappointed!

The casita was easy to find, even in our after-dark arrival time. As weary travelers we found the casita to be simply charming and exuded a welcoming warmth at the end of a long traveling day. The furnishings were very attractive and comfortable. In particular I enjoyed the beautiful water-color paintings by Ed's wife Bernie, which depicted scenes in keeping with the Central Coast wine region. The beds made for very a restful nights sleep as well. The casita in general was exceptionally well cared for and clean, clean, clean! The kitchen is a delight and so very inviting that we actually regretted that we weren't able to cook in it, due to our busy weekend schedule...maybe next time!

The casita is a very short drive into Pismo or San Luis Obispo and this made it easy for us to map out excellent eateries to begin or end our busy days.

Bravo and thank you to the Kurtz family for offering a true five star experience!

Peaceful, charming and gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Had the best time staying at the casita with a couple fellow Cal Poly SLO alumni for a birthday reunion trip. Ed was a great host who was easy to communicate with prior to the stay, and left us a bottle of wine and wine tasting vouchers to a nearby winery. The property is stunning and so relaxing, and although the casita is close to the main house we still felt like we had privacy. Thank you Ed & family for the hospitality! We hope to return again soon.

Loved our little casita!

  • 5 of 5

We were excited to find this little jewel. Rented for my 50th birthday with a few girlfriends and we just kept saying how much we liked the place.

The first night we went on a walk around the neighborhood which was lovely. It was almost harvest time for the grapes so all the vines were colorful. Looking out the bedroom windows we were able to see the vineyard every morning. It's also centrally located near everything. If you are looking for fun things to do... We went on a zipline adventure in Santa Margarita and then rented electric bikes in Avila.

The casita was well kept and we would definitely stay there again. : )

Thanks Ed!

Bonita Casita!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Casita this July. It is truly a lovely place, with every amenity you could possibly need! The beds are comfortable, and the furnishings are top notch. The kitchen had everything we needed too. And, we really enjoyed the jacuzzi looking out to the vineyards! The owner, Ed, was very available through email, and was quick to answer all my questions. It was also in a perfect location, as we were attending wedding festivities at Greengate Ranch, right next to the Bobcat vineyard. We used the free wine tasting coupons at the winery across the street. We plan to come back!

4th of July Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully decorated home with a well thought out, fully functional layout that handled our 6 guests. The large bathrooms with walk-in showers and tubs made our wives very happy. We felt more comfortable here than any hotel we've stayed in our 30 years of travel to the Central Coast. A ten minute drive to Pismo Beach and downtown SLO is so convenient, not to mention a half dozen wineries we visited that are 5 minutes away. The vineyard behind the back patio was the backdrop of the best dinner party we ever held. The "Casita" is private, clean and classy. Thumbs up!

A perfect long weekend in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

For our first visit to San Luis Obispo we chose to stay in this lovely small home in Edna rather than the town hotels and B&Bs. What a great choice!

As two couples coming for the three day wedding of the son of best friends we wanted a gracious, private place to escape the busy evening activities. The setting is lovely with two porches to enjoy the sun or shade in the middle of a well tended vineyard. The two well decorated bedrooms were generous , each with a large, well supplied bathroom. The kitchen and dining area provided every amenity, but no clutter. The entire house was immaculate, beautiful, welcoming and very comfortable Perfect!. We would love to return

The location was close enough to San Luis to provide access to the many good restaurants and stores, but located in a quiet, peaceful location. And not far from the beaches...

Ed Kurtz was great with answering questions and checking in after our stay to make sure all was well. He is a great host.
