Property description

Your SLO getaway awaits in San Luis Obispo, Ca. in this 3500 sq. ft. 5 bedroom home with a large secluded, enchanted garden and patio. Whether you are seeking a romantic couples getaway or a fun family vacation, this is the destination for you!
5 bedrooms with all NEW Cal King pillow top mattresses. The house has two separate wings, 5 bedrooms (two master bedrooms), two livingrooms, and three full bathrooms. The patio area has plenty of seating and quiet, cozy nooks. You won't have to worry about parking because there is plenty of space.

NEW A/C (air conditioner) whole house unit just installed.
For those few days in the summer that get a little warm in SLO you'll be totally cool in any room in the house.

While sitting in the garden with your wine, don't be surprised if you find yourself watching wild cotton tail bunnies, wild hare, humming birds, quail, and small finches, as well as our two 18 year old resident tortoises, George and Tommy.
Oprah says, ''San Luis Obispo is the Happiest City in America', and I must say that we agree.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Built by our family in 2000, this solar powered home allowed us to host our large family and still have room for our friends who often stayed with us. We have lived in SLO for over 30+ years, and we can't imagine living anywhere else. Now that our kids are grown and out of the house, we relocated and turned our beautiful home into this vacation rental. We know you'll enjoy the lovingly cared for property as much as we do. We just had NEW photos taken by Michelle C. Torres-Grant Photography

Why the Owner Chose San Luis Obispo, CA, USA:
Situated on 5 acres in the heart of Edna Valley. Large kitchen for entertaining guests. Very large 48x96 solid walnut kitchen table, which seats up to 10-12 comfortably. Two large livingrooms. one has a pro-fooseball table, while the other has a TV with DVR and blu-ray DVD player, Lots of places to enjoy your coffee or wine in the enchanted garden While all five bedrooms have Cal-king beds, there are two large masterbedrooms. 100' ft. long porch and patio with a beautiful garden and paths to meander on. Lots of outdoor seating. A large water fountain at the center of the garden. Two African Sulcata Tortoises that are in a pen as part of the garden. (George will be up early waiting for you to say "hello" and enjoy breakfast with you. Beatuiful mountain and meadow views. Secure 2 car garage (with additional parking available). 7 minutes to SLO and 5 minutes to Pismo Beach

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private and secure in the heart of Edna Valley, this beautiful home is conveniently located between the local vineyards, and once you arrive, do not be surprised if you spend most of your time wine tasting in this beautiful house and garden more than the local wineries.
