We designed and built our home after living and working in SLO. We are listing the home truly to share our unique paradise with those who will enjoy it!

Karen purchased this estate in 2007

Why Karen chose Atascadero

Country living with a short commute to SLO, warmer summer evenings yet still only minutes from the beach

What makes this estate unique

Perfect location!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Karen and Tom are very welcoming. The house is fantastic and has a great feel for families. It is nice but not stuffy. It is a very large property with tons to do. We loved the salt water pool, walking and running in the neighborhood. The kids loved petting the horses and named them all. They have a great coffee maker

I rented this house for my daughter's wedding at Santa Margarita Ranch. We had 13 people in the house plus a rehearsal dinner and we never felt on top of each other. The kitchen is extremely well organized and stocked and I brought items with me that I would not have had to bring. Is very clean and very comfortable. We took advantage of the beautiful warm pool and actually spent most of our time outside on the patio. We also were blessed with the opportunity to feed the horses on the ranch which was very exciting for my young niece and nephew. The biggest benefits were having two master bedrooms and enough beds to comfortably fit another married couple and four single young adults. It gave the family a sense of being at home all the while enjoying all the festivities that accompanied my daughter's wedding. I also had the opportunity to meet the owners – they were very nice and very down to earth and made us feel very welcome. Well worth it!!

spacious, well-kept home in beautiful Santa Margarita

  • 5 of 5

Three families (7 adults,including an 84 year old grandfather, 5 teenagers ranging from 13-19) spent a fun filled three days at this lovely, spacious, modern, well-kept home in Santa Margarita. The focal point of the house is the large open living area with a fully stocked kitchen, ultra modern appliances and living room with cathedral ceilings that easily accommodated our entire group without seeming crowded. We were able to all sit at the dining table for a couple of fun group meals. One advantage of this home is the number of bathrooms--often a limiting factor in trying to find suitable rentals for a group of this size and diversity. Two master bedrooms, a media room and another bedroom had private baths. There was one additional full bath in the hallway for the kids to share.

Unfortunately, it was too cold to take advantage of the pool. We enjoyed visiting the horses next door and often saw rabbits and deer close by. There is a very pleasant walk straight out the door, down the road that takes you to a nearby farm. Lovely in the morning.

Santa Margarita is close to SLO and Paso Robles, each of which boasts hip coffee companies and eateries. We also spent a blissful afternoon walking the stunning bluffside trail at Montana de Oro State Park.

My extended family and I booked this home as we were in the area for a relative's wedding at the Santa Margarita Ranch. This house was AMAZING, we never wanted to leave - and with all the amenities we really didn't have to. The backyard with batting cage, basketball court, ping pong, etc was HEAVEN for the kids and our 3 dogs enjoyed all the space to run around! The kitchen was a dream kitchen truly designed for entertaining and everything labeled for ease. I got a big pat on the back from all for picking this house. It was an unforgettable trip!!

A 5 star family Resort....

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect. There is really no need to leave this home.

The kids (& adults) always had something to do - Swimming in the pool, playing basketball, ping pong, hitting balls in the batting cage or watching Frozen a handful of times in the large TV room.

As for me, I love to be in the kitchen cooking for the family. I usually bring a lot of my own tools from home so I was amazed at how fully stocked and organized this kitchen was.

You can tell that the homeowners pay attention to details. The homeowner was a pleasure to work with. She answered all 200 questions I had regarding the home, shopping, firework shows, beaches etc… They even had a water bowl filled and waiting for our dog when we got there. You WILL NOT be disappointed calling this your home for a few days. I am hoping that we can make it back again next year.
