We originally had 9, but ended up with 7. The house was a great layout, clean and filled with games and things to do. Was a great visit
Kids had been cooped up at home due to COVID, so we booked a stay here with another family, and it was fantastic. The house was clean and comfortable, and very spacious. The property was large - plenty of room for the kids to run around. They loved having their own “wing” of the house with the game room (foosball!), and enjoyed feeding the tortoises too. Gay was available and responsive, and seems to take care to ensure proper cleaning between visits during this pandemic.
Beautiful house with a nice yard and fenced area with big turtles. fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, game room and big clean rooms. just 7 minutes drive from Pismo beach and 6 minutes from San Luis Obispo. the owner Gay was awesome, she communicated with us very well and made sure we had everything we needed. We'll definitely come back to the turtle house.
Yossi & his family took the house for Memorial weekend. What better way to self-isolate than to be with family at The Turtle House. Seems they took advantage of the boogie boards that are available for guests & the beach so they must have had a great time together. I'm happy to hear you all had a good time.
I look forward to hosting them all again sometime in the near future. Stay safe, Gay
Excellent house and location.
We had a excellent time at the property. We got to see one of the turtles. He was magnificent. The property is spacious and very well-maintained. Kitchen and kitchen facilities excellent as is the dining room table and area. Beds were very comfortable. Patio outside is very enjoyable. Barbecue worked well and only minor issue is I wish there was a light by it. Five star house and five star location. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks, Guy.
Great jumping off place for central coast
Super location, close to beaches, airport, downtown; yet isolated, private, quiet and beautiful. Great outdoor spaces and accommodated our large extended family perfectly. This is a well appointed place with every creature comfort needed for a relaxing visit.
Fun things to do in the area:
*Famous Farmers Market Downtown SLO Thursday nights from 6-9PM.
*Wine Tasting all around Edna, Paso Robles, and South County (where “Sideways” was filmed).
Hiking and mountain biking.
Ziplining at the Santa Margarita Ranch.
Hearst Castle, the historic site located right next to the beautiful San Simeon Beach.
Horse back riding on Oceano Beach, Montana de Oro, and at the Madonna Inn.
Art after Dark in Downtown San Luis Obispo on the first Friday of every month 6-9PM.
All summer long: live concerts at the Mission Plaza on Friday's starting at 6PM.
Kayaking in Pismo, Shell, and Avila.
Bi-plane rides in Oceano (see the Central Coast from a Bi-plane ride).
*Lots of golf courses in the immediate area.
*The Bob Jones Cycling Trail to Avila Beach, which is a fun family activity. During the Summer Avila has their own Farmers Market Every Friday evening.
Stop by the Avila Valley Barn to see the animals, have fresh ice cream, and pick out fresh fruit and homemade pies.
Only a few minutes drive to Lopez Lake for fishing, sailing, or picnicking with family, and the Mustang Water Park is a lot fun too.
The Turtle House
About The Turtle House
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 Your welcome to call me if I can help with any questions.
