                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: We found this amazing piece of property 5 years ago and have enjoyed transforming it for ourselves and our guests! We also have Olive Tree Cabin, perfect for two with a hot tub! See VRBO# 280447 David is a massage therapist specializing in Myofascial Release a specialized PAIN RELIEF therapy. We offer health retreats with Intensive MFR treatment programs, fasting, live food preparation classes and Zero Point Process sessions. Vanessa is a professional artist offering creativity training, art instruction for both individual and group session. Additionally she works with the Zero Point Process which is a perfect tool for self improvement that is simple and easy to learn and use. She is also a certified Wellness Practitioner and hosts the Detox Retreats.

                          Why the Owner Chose San Luis Obispo:
                          We had it in our minds that we wanted a piece of property that was large enough to afford us plenty of privacy, yet close to town as we are both still working and did not want to be far away from the conveniences of town. Long time anti-hotel travelers, we also wanted a piece of property that would give us the opportunity to share our locale with others via a vacation rental or B&B. Our realtor called us saying 'You've just got to see this property, it's perfect for you!'. It was, we fell in love with it and have been updating, remodeling and relandscaping ever since. It's our labor of love which we enjoy sharing with others.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          We enjoy all the peace and quite of country living and yet we're close to town. It's just 5 minutes to the nearest Trader Joes and any other shopping you could want to do. A brief 10 minute drive puts you in either the beach communities of Grover Beach, Oceano, Pismo Beach, or Shell Beach, with San Luis Obispo, or Old Town Arroyo Grande just minutes away. There are no street lights and on clear night the stars will dazzle you, especially if you live in the city where it's easy to forget how amazing the starry heavens are. Wildlife abounds, you'll see deer, fox, quail, the occasional bobcat, a variety of hawks, falcons and our ever present owls. The location is quite, private and relaxing.
