                                We were four couples of long time friends on an annual retreat together. The place was certainly spacious and well cared for. The kitchen was great for multiple people preparing food. The setting is very remote, and as such, contributed, we believe, to our inability to access TV or Internet. One of the folks suffered allergies due to the fact that a cat lives in the home most of the time. On the other hand, we missed having a cat around as a persistent mouse tried to chew his way out of the locked closet one night. But all that aside, we were all comfortable and relaxed in our time spent together.

                                I brought my closest family and a few friends to share my birthday, and I can say without reserve: this was the greatest birthday I have ever had! We didn't even want to leave ! The house truly is a home! The pure quiet of nature surrounding you is bliss! You can party, you can play, you can rest! Karen and Kevin could not be more accommodating ! I had along with my family four young adults in their 20s saying that they didn't want the weekend to end! I would do this every year, twice a year if I could! Did I say how perfect this place was?

                                My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights with some close friends right before our wedding. Every one was amazed at how beautiful and comfortable this house was. The property felt remote and serene, even though it was only 15 minutes outside of SLO. Karen was very gracious and made us feel welcome.

                                Our family rented Karen & Kevin's SLO ranch for a long July 4 family reunion, with about 12 adults and children. We had a fantastic time! The house is beautiful and spacious, and has everything needed for large get-together, from a fully stock kitchen to games (table tennis and pool table) to bikes to a grand piano. We have stayed at various vacation homes through out the state, but Morretti ranch is by far our favorite place. Although completely secluded, it's a short driving distance to the beach, Vons, wineries and Lopez lake. Kevin and Karen were fantastic hosts. Overall, an awesome place and a great experience!

                                This place is absolutely breath taking. Pictures do not do it justice. Very private, and yet still very close to town, beaches and many other activities. Myself and 8 others stayed here and did not feel crowded at all. We loved this place so much we hardly wanted to leave. The property is an experience of its own, as there is always something to do and many sights to see! The owners, Kevin and Karen, were very accommodating, friendly and easy to work with. They made our stay that much more enjoyable. I would absolutely stay here again, and would recommend doing so to anyone! Thank you Kevin and Karen for allowing us to have such a great experience in your home!

                                Took a 50th Birthday trip with some friends and stayed at this beautiful property for 5 days in March. We had the most wonderful time. Everything was perfect with the house. Lots of room in the house and spacious property to take walks on. Perfect location to do some wine tasting, several wineries around the corner. Strongly recommend renting this property, Definately plan to visit this property again within the year.

                              Why the Owner Chose San Luis Obispo:
                              This is a very special property and has brought a lot of joy to our family over the years. My aviation business has moved our family temporarily away from San Luis Obispo. Encouraged by our friends, we decided to share this property with visitors to this beautiful corner of the world. It is our hope that you would enjoy a truly exclusive opportunity to visit the Central Coast.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                              Privacy, hiking, and riding the interesting property to see incredible views!!! Short drive back to the wonderful city of San Luis Obispo and Edna Valley attractions.
