About the Property

Central Coast Villa, 5 Bdrm, 3 Bath, Sleeps 8-10, Just 4 minutes from SLO

Nestled at the bottom of beautiful Bishop's Peak, this Villa is conveniently located just 4 minutes away from the quaint downtown of San Luis Obispo. It is one of eight custom homes on a private gated ranch. The attention to detail on the property make your visit a truly unique experience. Spend time 'camping' in the tree house with bunks tucked around tree limbs, while a fireplace lights the night. Hang out in the rock room which has its own wood burning fireplace, seating area and a bath with a rock waterfall shower. Kids and adults alike can enjoy a game of pool, ping pong, or basketball. Relax by the pool by day and roast marshmallows at night. Outdoor movies can be enjoyed with an additional deposit for the projector. Relax indoors in the family area while sipping a glass of wine and watching the tropical fish swim around the coral garden in the built in aquarium. Or simply unwind with a soak in one of the luxurious tubs.

This property backs up against hundreds of acres of open space, where owls and hawks can be seen nesting nearby. Many small wild birds visit the patio feeders and fill the day with cheerful songs. Begin your day with breakfast on one of the scenic patios followed by a beautiful hike on one of many trails by just stepping out the back door. Horseback riding can be arranged.


If you decide to venture away from the house, you can enjoy a variety of activities including touring one of the many wineries, shopping downtown, biking and hiking trails, kayaking in Morro Bay, deep sea fishing, scenic biplane flights, picnics at the beach, surfing, boogie boarding and beach bonfires. Just a short drive north you can see Elephant Seals, Coast Redwoods of Big Sur and Hearst Castle. Evening activities can begin with a lovely dinner at one of the many fine eating establishments downtown. There are several local movie theaters and many bars have live music Thursday - Saturdays. Day trips to Santa Barbara and Monterey Bay can make great excursions.
Come experience the SLO life at its finest! If you have other questions or would like to see more pictures, please email us.

Daily house keeping can be arranged for an additional fee.

This property is NOT a venue for Weddings or other events. It is meant to be enjoyed by your family or small group of friends.

Individual bedrooms may be available on a nightly rate.
We may be interested in exchanging our home for another for any length of time. Please inquire by email or telephone.

Owner info

About the owner: We are a family of 4 who enjoy traveling, the outdoors and our SLO life. We have designed and built our home with love and a few quirky touches that remind us of our adventures abroad. After college at Cal Poly we wanted to stay local and raise our family. Upon building our home, we decided to share it with others allowing us to embark on more adventures.

Why the Owner Chose San Luis Obispo, CA, USA:
This property is unique in its location feeling as if you are a world away from hustle and bustle in the country with cows meandering on the open space, yet only 4-5 minutes from the heart of downtown San Luis. It has been a labor of love and creativity mixing functionality with ecletic tastes of our travels. When designing the property, it was our intent to make it look as it had been here forever. As we began to build, we couldn't ignore all of the beautiful surrounding outdoor views resulting in a house full of windows providing a vignette through each frame. All sitting at the base of Bishop's Peak which provides a stunning backdrop and great hiking trails.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Location, location, location= convenience + relaxation We are located near Cal Poly, downtown, close to freeway access. The country charm of the area boasts wonderful views and wildlife. Listen in the evening or early morning as the pair of owls call to one another or take a bath in the the fountain. Enjoy a cup of tea on the breakfast patio while the humming birds start their rounds, or relax with a glass of wine in the afternoon /evening watching the light dance on Bishop's Peak as a red tailed hawk circles in the updraft. The outdoor spaces vie for your attention. There are many areas to sit and enjoy the beauty both inside and out. From comfortable outdoor breakfast patios to the fountain courtyard with the living room feel. We have worked to create a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere where all who enter feel like family and find it hard to leave.
