About The Turtle House
Built by our family in 2000, this solar powered home allowed us to host our large family and still have room for our friends who often stayed with us. We have lived in SLO for over 30+ years, and we can't imagine living anywhere else. Now that our kids are grown and out of the house, we relocated and turned our beautiful home into this vacation rental. We know you'll enjoy the lovingly cared for property as much as we do. We just had NEW photos taken by Michelle C. Torres-Grant Photography Your welcome to call me at: (805) 305-7373 if I can help with any questions.

Turtle House - Wedding House for Family
The Turtle House is a beautiful house located in Enda Valley. We stayed here for our daughter's wedding weekend (the wedding was held just down the road). It was such a peaceful house with beautiful gardens. There was plenty of room for our extended family to stay.
Wow! Amazing family reunion.
“Wow! What an amazing family reunion we had at the Turtle House. The home was very spacious, well decorated and perfect for our 7 adults and 2 children. A bonus was the proximity of the airport to Turtle House... since we had 4 families arriving at 4 different times, the 5 minute trip to the airport was very convenient. We enjoyed feeding the turtles too.... at first, they were a bit shy, but by on our last day, they came right up to the fence to take a closer look at us. Turtle House was also convenient for our trips to the beach, as they are under 15 minutes away. ” John
Phenomenal Space for a family gathering
This house was everything it claimed to be and more. Nine adults. Regular rooms were spacious for two people, and the 2 masters were huge. The beds were really comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked (dishes, serving utensils, pots, pans, coffee and condiments) with a huge dining table for big groups - and everyone loved the couch in the kitchen combined with the island for mingling while cooking. We spent a lot of time in the big game room with a couch big enough for 7+ to lounge on comfortably and floor to play charades. We especially appreciated the extra attention provided for cleaning as my mother has a dust allergy. The house was immaculate and dust free even with lots of plush carpeting. Thank you! The back patio is so wonderful we wish we'd had more days to use it. Gay (property contact) was responsive, helpful in suggesting site-seeing, and accommodating to special requests. House had numerous little touches (twinkle lights, bedroom wall decor, trunk/coffee table, paper and tape on the desk) that just made it extra special. 15 minutes from Avila beach.
This was a great house for a long weekend with family
Our family celebrated the New Year's weekend here. There was room for everyone, with play area for kids, enough bedrooms, and a great kitchen area. The garden is lovely, and the kids particularly enjoyed it. The house was very clean -- much appreciated!
Suggestion: We did a lot of cooking and eating together, and ran out of kitchen towels and flatware. A full service for 12, plus more towels would be great.
I'm so glad you all enjoyed your stay together over New Years & happy you enjoyed the house.
The kitchen is suppose to have flat ware for 14 people & 8-10 towels, so I will go by & do a count so I can get those items back in the kitchen. Unfortunately, some people do end up taking items from the house- my apologies.
Happy New Years to you and yours, Gay
From the moment our reservation was accepted we were shown nothing but wonderful hospitality from the Landlord.
The house fit our 3 families so well especially when each of the 5 rooms had king size beds, the garden was beautiful. We had our morning breakfast outside with the fountain as a backdrop and the beautiful mountains to look toward. The location was wonderful as well. Best location to enjoy the vineyards and wineries. An easy drive to Pismo Beach where we enjoyed Sunset Dinner (Ventana Grill) and dotown SLO for shopping and perusing.. The wonderful suggestions of things to do from the SLO chamber of commerce steered us in right direction to Avila Beach via the Bob Jones Trail. Overall best vacation Home and vacation in along time.
San Luis is such a great place to be with your family while enjoying the great outdoors. I'm glad you all found the house so enjoyable while exploring SLO with your extended family. Thanks for your kind review & hopefully we'll see you & your group sometime in the near future. Happy Travels, Gay
