About Clive Pinder
We were born on the Central Coast of California and the West Coast of Africa. We have lived to travel, funded by successful careers in entertainment, technology and healthcare. We are happiest among friends in exotic places, enjoying the epicurean delights of great food, wine and conversation. Our goal has always been to build homes around the idea of open plan open air living in places that we love. After building a beach home on the island Zanzibar off the East Coast of Africa, we turned our attention to building our dream home back home where Karrin was born. Kuona Villas is that dream come true.
Why Clive Pinder chose San Luis Obispo County
We designed and built the homes on the property ourselves. The cottage is based on all the features and home comforts we look for when renting our own holiday villas. We are lucky enough to have lived and traveled around the world, from Europe through Africa. Big cities, country villages and golden sandy beaches. Yet chose to return here because of the unique combination of great weather, world class vineyards and ranches, one of the most famous coastlines in the world, easy access by car and plane and wonderful shops and restaurants. Not included: Noise; Mini-bars, Schedules, Lowered Voices, Strangers, Apologizing. Included: Peace & Quiet, Space, Freedom, Flexibility, Conviviality, Loved Ones, Great Memories.
What makes this Cottage unique
The first thing you'll notice as you drive up the lane is the tranquility. Then you'll be immersed in a 360 degree view of rolling hills, vineyards and ranches. (Kuona means 'To See' in Swahili, the language of Zanzibar and East Africa). As we welcome you with a glass of wine, a pot of tea (the English are never far from a cuppa) or freshly roasted coffee from our coffee shop, you'll be struck by the warm, contemporary interior design and all the comforts of home. That includes a welcome pack from some of our favorite producers in the area including wine, discounted wine tastings, olive oil, freshly roasted coffee and amazing honey from bees who feast on a coastal avocado farm. We have friends at vineyards and olive farms, restaurants ranches around the area. That means we have plenty of 'insider tips' and 'local knowledge' to help you make the most of your stay. Right next door is a world famous natural wine vineyard where you can get a tour & tasting of one of the purest and most natural expressions of wine you will ever taste. Just down the road is an amazing organic fruit and vegetable farm. We love living here and enjoying all the world class natural produce that the Central Coast has to offer.
