About Peri Kost

We (Jeff and Peri) enjoy making each guest's experience one to remember, and take care in making each visit tailored to each individual. We welcome any special requests and feel honored to share our spot

Peri Kost purchased this bungalow in 2002

Why Peri Kost chose Central Coast

Peri was born in San Luis Obispo at Sierra Vista hospital when my father was attending Cal Poly. My parents then moved back to Modesto soon after I was born and raised the family there, all the while enjoying many vacations on the central coast growing up. After several years living in the Bay Area, I knew I wanted to move back from where I was born, and we did exactly that in 2002. We are located within minutes to several beaches, lakes, golf courses, wineries, shopping, antiquing, spas, hiking areas, national forests, recreation areas, live theatre, restaurants, and so much more

What makes this bungalow unique

You are minutes away from the beach, hiking, lakes and wineries! It is a country setting, yet luxurious in feel. Cozy, romantic, french inspired cottage with a moroccan inspired lanai for indoor/outdoor living, the sound of birds, the scent of the ocean and stunning sunsets. Lots of spaces to enjoy inside and out! Wonderful for a romantic get-away, retreat or celebration, and so much more....

French Inspired Cottage & Lush Moroccan Lanai with Spa Feel
average rating of 4.25 based on 4 reviews

Cute cottage in a rustic setting but disappointing sleeping arrangements

  • 3 of 5

This is such a cute place and the owners were very nice and accommodating. They have a beautiful property with chickens and sheep, and the area is beautiful; however I could not give more than 3 stars as we believed the owner's assertion that it accommodated four people. I even spoke with the owner prior to committing to the booking and explained that we were a family of four with two teenagers. There is only one "real" bed and it is a double, and the fold out couch that converts to a "bed" doesn't fit one adult, let alone two. It is so hard and uncomfortable it really isn't fair to consider it a sleeping accommodation. The owner brought in another very small "bed" which made the one room cottage hard to navigate. Luckily we have relatives nearby and were able to have two people from our family sleep there, but it was not an ideal set up at all for us and I would not recommend this for more than two people.

Owner's Response: Dear Jennifer, It was wonderful having your family stay at our cottage. Thank you so much for your candid review. Since your stay we have revamped the living area and now have a large second sleeping area with soft cozy bedding and bed. We are focused on making each guest experience special and wonderful, and am very thankful for you bringing the issue to my attention. We are continuing to strive for complete satisfaction and comfort. Best Regards, Peri and Jeff

Adorable cottage & Great central coast location!

  • 5 of 5

This adorable cottage was exactly what we needed for our 4 night stay on the Central Coast. It had everything we needed to make our stay feel "just like home." I stayed here with my husband, our 2 1/2 year old son, & our dog. The owners Peri & Jeff are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They brought us fresh eggs from their Zen Hut, showed us the feeding of the animals, & treated our dog just like their own. The cottage is very clean and has everything you need to make your stay pleasant. The cute Lanai is the perfect place to sit outside and enjoy a book, or glass of wine.

Nice & quite location and convenient to all the wonderful things to do on the Central Coast. I hope to get a chance to come back to this Cottage Gem. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay on the central coast. Much better then staying at a hotel!

Owner's Response: Dear Vickie, It was so fabulous meeting you and your beautiful family. I am so glad you were able to enjoy your stay as well as your nieces wedding. We loved looking after your pup while you were doing "wedding" things because we didn't want you to be worrying while you were out. We also loved sharing the animal experience with you and the baby. Jeff and I are continuing making improvements on the boutique farm and the French inspired cottage to make it a stellar experience for all. Look for our new pic postings of the new foldout couch as well as the cozy French settee. If you return with a larger group next time, don't forget about our main house also on the property, listing number 398217. Peri and Jeff

Perfect little cottage close to everything

  • 5 of 5

I was in the area 10 days for business and am tired of hotels, so I use VRBO for longer-term stays. So far it's been a fantastic decision...and this place continues the winning streak. It's small, cozy even, but then there is the outdoor lanai which doubles the living space! You'll spend a lot of time out there too; it is that great. Inside, you've got a comfy bed, huge bathroom, full kitchen and enough charm for the entire mesa. And you just can't beat the location...don't even're about 15 minutes or less from everything, and golf is almost next door. I didn't even turn the TV on the whole time but you've got satellite TV too if that is your thing.

Peri and Jeff are the perfect hosts...they respect your privacy but are right there if you need them. The farm is great and the Zen Hens do a fabulous job with the eggs. And don't forget the friendly goats who I am convinced think they are dogs. The cottage is set back from the road so no traffic noises, and you can fully immerse yourself in the country charm. I will be back next time I'm in the area.

Owner's Response: Dear Mark, Thanks so much for the kind words! It was so great to have you come and stay, even though it was a working vacation! You have inspired us to continue our efforts in making strides on new additions to the boutique farm as well as the French inspired cottage. We now have a new foldout couch and a feather filled French settee to make it even more comfy in our spot here at the coast. We value our guests and we look forward to seeing you again. Peri and Jeff

Wonderfully relaxing

  • 4 of 5

This was a last minute decision to have a few days relaxation and escape the heat of the Central Valley.

Loved the peaceful nature of this property, looking over farmland and waking to birdsong. The decor of the accommodation was wonderfully eclectic, note the very pretty chandelier in the kitchen. The bathroom was amazingly roomy with a double shower. The property is within a very short drive of the beach and all the interesting coastal towns.

What really made this a very pleasant stay though was the owners who also reside on the property. They were extremely friendly and helpful whilst thoroughly respecting our privacy. All in all a great mini break.

Owner's Response: Dear Margaret, What a pleasure it was meeting you and your husband. We are so glad you had a good stay. We are striving to have each guest walk away with a wonderful experience and a fantastic memory. We are also continuing with with the expansion of our boutique farm and French inspired cottage to make that spa like feeling come alive for all. We hope to see you again when you need a beach retreat, and if you return with a larger group, remember we also have our main house available as well on the same property also listed on VRBO!
