About Owner

We're a quiet, friendly family w/ 2 kids, 2 cats, and a silly dog. We're busy living life on the front side of the property and will leave you to your privacy.

Why Owner chose Central Coast

You will hear only the peeping of quail in the morning, the chirping of birds in the day, and the hooting of owls at night (and coyote howls). Warm sunny days are freshened by a gentle breeze from the pacific and fragranced by the surrounding pines and flowers.

What makes this house unique

Nipomo is known for having one of the most stable climates in the world. You can expect most days to be sunny and pleasant. Winters are usually the same as summers - around 70 degrees. There is sometimes a pretty mist in the mornings. From late October thru February the monarch butterflies migrate across the property.

Excellent getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Just as advertised, this was a very comfortable rental house for the two of us plus two dogs. Stayed for two months and had no issues. The surrounding area has much to offer, and the weather is very temperate. Highly recommended.

Large, Beautiful, calm getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Thanksgiving weekend, with our son and our large dog.

The cottage is BIG. The extra bathroom is a huge bonus. We also had side yard (2 actually), a full kitchen, and a garage to park our car. With a lab for a dog, small spaces can be nauseating -- but this cottage is large and had a real nice layout -- so everything feels connected. The doors are mostly sliding doors, so the compartmentalization effect is minimal.

The TV is setup for netflix and amazon. We actually loved that. There is wifi -- so we were able to use our computer as needed.

Most of all, the location is peaceful and quiet, but not too far from Pismo or any other destination in the area.

We really had a great time and we will be back again.

Excellent accommodation in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Both the dog friendly aspect and the golf accessibility were irrelevant to us however we rate this holiday accommodation in Nipomo as the best we have stayed in during any of our trips to California and the U.S.A.

Despite being described as a one bedroom cottage the accommodation is very spacious and includes everything one could need. There is a large garage with internal access directly into the property, a laundry room, two shower rooms, a sunken bath, a large and comfortable bedroom, spacious living room and very well equipped kitchen. Outside is a large private decked area which is equally well positioned for sun during the day and star gazing at night. Despite sharing the site with the owner, Suzy, there is no problem with privacy as she is available to help but remains very discreet.

Although relatively rural the property is only three or four minutes drive from 'Willow', a very pleasant local restaurant/delicatessen and 'Vons', the local well stocked supermarket, is only about a ten minute drive away. Pismo Beach and the village of Arroyo Grande are within easy (10-15 mins) reach while the delightful town of San Luis Obispo is only a little over half an hour to the north and whale watching trips from Morro Bay can easily be accessed within about forty minutes. To the south Santa Barbara and Ventura are a little further but not too far away down the 101 to be visited for day trips.

All in all an excellent and beautifully located property which we recommend unreservedly, but please don't try and book it for next September as, if she's still there, we aim to go's that good.

Nipomo Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a couple or a small family. First impression - fantastic. Larger than I expected - the photos online didn't do it justice - spacious and clean. If you prefer a bit of elbow room to a small hotel room, this place is an excellent option. We were five adults (myself, my husband and our 3 adult children) coming up to Nipomo for a long week-end to attend a wedding. Only one bedroom, but two baths and great layout for separation. The sleeper sofa is firm, as is the rollaway bed, but not uncomfortable. We planned to eat some meals in and the kitchen was large and well-equipped. The coffee maker didn't work, but Suzy had a new one in place within hours. I could have used some instructions how to use the stove - I had a little trouble trying to preheat the oven - but my son was able to figure it out. We spent a bit of time on the patio where just enough shade and cool breezes kept it at a comfortable temperature even though it was hovering around 100 degrees in the sun when we were there. Beautiful mature pines out back gave off that beautiful incense-like scent. Even though the cottage is on the same property as the owner's house, it is private and quiet. The stars at night were amazing. Other than attending the wedding, we visited Hearst Castle (about an hour north) and Solvang (45 minutes south), and visited the local beaches for surfing. The location feels remote, but is very close to the 101 (3 minutes) and the center of Nipomo with restaurants and other amenities (grocery, Starbucks). We checked out Jocko's for steak - popular place, good food and very casual - definitely gives you the local flavor. I would absolutely recommend this property for comfort, convenience and all-around esthetics. Incidentally, the Dana Powers Ranch in Nipomo is a very cool wedding venue!

Wonderful cottage, great service, relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here for the 2015 Thanksgiving holiday. We were able to bring our dog [ mind you he weighs in at 96 lbs] The cottage has a garage, washer and dryer, and spacious floor plan. Kitchen was clean, well equipped and excellent seating. We were very comfortable. The dog had a very nice yard to run in and got to see what chickens looked like [ he is a city dog] . The owners were very responsive to communication. I am looking forward to staying there again if and when the opportunity presents itself. I would recommend it to anyone that wanted a relaxing get away.

The house is located about 5 miles due east from the ocean and 1 mile off Hwy 1. Willow Road exit off Hwy 101 is a straight 3 mile drive to the cottage. The cottage is less than 1,000 ft from Blacklake golf course. It feels like a country setting, surrounded by trees and fields.
