|Minimum Stay||3 - 5 nights|
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.

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.
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.
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.
This place really is Heaven on Earth. Anything you could want a vacation home to have, this home has it. The views from every room and every window are spectacular. You really are transported to another world, yet the conveniences are all near. If you want to golf, hike, play foosball, ping pong, swim, play pool, watch a movie in the theater, have a fire outside, you name it this house has it. The only thing I have to say is, that in a week we did not have time to do all that this home has to offer. If you want to get away and feel like you are in an exotic land, a cross between Mexico and Italy, this home awaits you. Pictures and words do not do this place justice. We will be back, no question about it. We have already recommended this place to family and friends. The house manager Kit was so responsive to any question we had during our stay and replied to us promptly. Thank you to the Scarry family for sharing their beautiful home.
This home is stunningly grand, unique, and ultra-custom, yet casual and comfortable. It is spectacularly sited at the base of Bishop's Peak with views of the gorgeous San Luis Obispo hills in every direction. Wonderfully private - no need for any window treatments in this home. Alluring and lush landscaping lends the house to indoor-outdoor living. Access to Bishop's Peak hiking trails is "out the back door". We all enjoyed the pool, as our stay was in July. This lovely home was a perfect central gathering spot for our family (all adults, although kids of all ages would love it here) who converged from San Diego, San Francisco, and British Columbia. It is California at its most beautiful.
We had a wonderful time at this home. From its locations, the style of the house, to all it's amenities. First class all the way. We were all in awwww with how beautiful the home was. We would definitely stay here again.
Felt like home the moment I walked in the door. Each room was better than the next from the wonderful kitchen to the sitting room. The outdoor areas were wonderful for reading, relaxing, and talking with friends. Loved each of the bathrooms - from the copper slipper tub to the rock waterfall shower. Really enjoyed the evenings in the Rock room with a fire in the fireplace. This is just a fantastic place to stay!
We stayed here with a group of friends for a Cal Poly alumni reunion of our group of friends and it was absolutely amazing. From the minute we walked into the home, we felt like there was no need for us to leave the premises all weekend. You have everything you need here and the place is simply beautiful, relaxing and fun.
I'd definitely recommend it!
You can see from the pictures how beautiful the house is. What you can't quite tell from pictures is how comfortable it is, how designed it is with tactile pleasure in mind. This is not a stage house, where everyone huddles in one corner while the rest of the space remains cold and distant. Every part of it is lived in; every surface feels solid and permanent and warm. It's a family house, "villa" or no. It accommodates you whether you spend your day away from it or within it, whether you like to run or sit still. And it could not exist without the owners and property manager, who were kind and helpful to an extreme.
We made lifelong memories at this house.
We knew going in that this home would be a great place to stay, but it completely exceeded our expectations! We were welcomed by the owner the minute that we arrived and provided with a tour of the home and property, not to mention a beautiful spread of cheese, crackers, fruit, wine and supplies for s'mores. He took great care in explaining every amazing area of the home and really demonstrated great pride in what he had built, which he should because it's one of a kind!
The detail and thought that went into designing this home was quickly evident as we spent our time there. There are so many areas to escape to and enjoy and we soon realized that we should have booked a longer stay! Everything you need is at your fingertips, you literally can arrive empty handed and don't have to worry about a thing. The heated pool is perfect for spending the morning, afternoon or evening. The rock room is awesome and provides a great place to lounge, enjoy a fire and just relax to take everything in. There are sweeping views of the valley and mountains from every window and patio throughout the home and just steps from the driveway are hiking trails up to Bishop's Peak for even better views.
Each room within the home is comfortable and tastefully designed with hints of different cultures that the owners have encountered throughout their travels and provide a story for each visitor to enjoy as well. The Sonos music system provides a user friendly way to create ambiance throughout the property indoors and out and is easily adjustable by zone to provide the right level of music just where you need it. We enjoyed the outdoor projector and screen for a late night movie with the kids.
If you're considering a stay at this home, don't hesitate - just book it. You won't be disappointed and after the first day of your stay will be planning your next visit. It is truly a "home" to enjoy with family and friends and the owners couldn't be more welcoming.
We had an amazing time and definitely plan to visit again soon!
