We have owned property in the community of Oak Shores for over 11 years. We purchased Villa Cantina in January of this year and completed it as a vacation home for our family as well as a rental for others to enjoy.
The Owner purchased this house in 2010
We purchased this home because we love the paso robles wine country.
We enjoy the lake as well as exploring the wineries on the nearby westside.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is well appointed with furnishings and well maintained. The area is beautiful, peaceful and a true retreat. The area is inviting with a variety of wineries, Paso Robles shops and restaurants and the overall beauty of the area. We would not hesitate to return.
There were 7 of us, 3 couples and 1 single, so we all had a bedroom/bath suite to ourselves, with 1 bedroom left over. 3 of the group were visiting from Italy so we enjoyed exploring the area of vineyards and olive groves, taking in a great tour of Halter Ranch underground cellars. The area is like a young version of what they are used to in Italy, and it was fun to talk about the comparisons. We all love to cook so the large kitchen, fully stocked with cookware and serving dishes, with 2 sinks and plenty of countertop space was perfect for 3-5 people working at one time. We set big platters of food on the large peninsula between the kitchen and dining room and feasted every night. The local community is a nice place to walk in the morning or evening light, with hills to get your blood pumping, views of the lake, and deer and wild turkey grazing on the properties. When we arrived on Christmas Eve, we found the home decorated beautifully and we immediately made ourselves at home with a fire, the Christmas lights and a long-awaited reunion! The interior design of this home is professionally done and the home is stocked with everything you need but your clothing and groceries. There are 2 outdoor living/eating spaces and a ping pong table which we used. This is a beautiful place to stay with a group, especially if you enjoy wine tasting, craft beer, olive oil tasting, or boutique shopping in Paso Robles. In our case we did not experience the restaurants, but heard some rave reviews from the locals. Next time!
Thank you Steve and Cindy for sharing your gorgeous lake home through VRBO. Our family Thanksgiving weekend could not have been any better. I knew your house would be fabulous, but as each couple arrived, their mouths dropped open at how truly amazing it really was! Every detail from the great amenities, the calm, serene atmosphere, the views and the beautiful interiors were perfection. It is a couples dream get away. This is a wonderful property and I highly recommend it!
This is a beautiful WELL PREPARED rental property. Having rented numerous vacation properties over the years there is always something that was missing or not quite available on the property. That was not the case with this property. Everything was well thought out and planned with nothing lacking. The house was beautifully and artistically designed on the inside with up to date and modern accommodations. If we had questions, Cindy, the property owner, was always available and patiently worked to ensure we were satisfied during our entire stay. This property is situated and structured to attend to all your desires for your stay barring nothing. Absolutely outstanding and beautiful home which we hope to visit again in the near future.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a couple of friends here and we had such a wonderful and comfortable stay. The house is beautiful, the beds are comfortable, the balcony off of the living room was amazing for a bbq, and we had a late night ping pong tournament in the downstairs game room. The owner, Cindy, is one of the friendliest and most helpful owners I've ever worked with, that is very much appreciated.
The only issue we had was that the overflow parking is located about 5 miles away from the house and when asking for directions at the gate, they are not very helpful.
This house is very peaceful, but be ready for a drive. It's a few miles of curvy road to get there.
What a fantastic home for a group of people looking for some peace and quiet. The house is off the beaten path and not really close to much, but it was just the way I liked it. About 50 minutes from Paso Robles and about 1.5 hours from the coast. The views from the balcony were breathtaking. the balcony provided the perfect seats to enjoy the sunset every night. The house itself was newly remodeled and was decorated tastefully. The beds were comfortable and the house clean. Kitchen was spacious and had everything one would have at home to prepare a gourmet meal. Highly recommended.
