About the Property

A private place on a hillside with access to wineries, beaches, hiking & more!

This 1-bedroom, 1-bath hideaway can sleep 2 people comfortably. It is situated in the hills of west Atascadero on the backside of the coastal mountains, high above the valley that stretches for miles. It is perched in the oak trees making this a spectacular, private, “tree-house” setting.

In addition to stunning views, this apartment is located in the heart of wine country with easy access to the central coast beaches, hiking trails, and restaurants. Paso Robles, with over 300 wineries is 15 minutes away, and San Luis Obispo is a 25-minute drive. Avila Beach, Cayucos Beach, Morro Bay, and Cambria are approximately 20-30 minutes away.

Airy and cozy, this place is newly remodeled with all new stainless steel appliances - dishwasher, microwave and stove, granite counters, tile flooring, fireplace, flat-screen TV with DVD player and a queen-size bed and full pull-out bed. The outdoor patio overlooks a million dollar view and a place to watch the wildlife; a perfect place to relax for a quiet morning coffee or sip the local wine while watching the beautiful sunset.

Owners, Bill and Paula, are retired educators and world travelers. They will be glad to give you suggestions about special places to visit and things to do in the area. With advanced notice they can arrange a driver for you to go wine tasting. A massage therapist is available upon special request. This is a place you will want to come back to as often as possible.

Sorry, no pets and no smoking. The apartment has a private entrance and is located on the north side of our main home overlooking miles of the North County: Templeton and Paso Robles. It is quiet and serene, and your privacy is respected.

Please turn off outside porch light during the night while sleeping and also during daylight hours.

The electric heater/fireplace is not thermastatically controlled so you must turn it off manually. Please be sure to turn it off whenever you leave the apartment for safety reasons as well as during the night when you sleep (unless it is too cold to do so). Also, turn off the portable electric heater in the bedroom whenever leaving the premises.

Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.

Car: Necessary

Located right in the heart of wine country with over 400 wineries to choose from for wine tasting. We can help arrange for a driver so you can visit multiple wineries and not worry about driving. Five central coast beaches are within 20-30 minute drive where you can fish, surf, rent kayaks and paddle boards, walk the beach, and sun-bathe. Many hiking trails are nearby. A local spa and hot mineral springs are easily accessible. Tennis courts and golf courses are also nearby. Or simply relax on the patio while overlooking the views with your wine or coffee and watch the wildlife in this rural setting.


Owner info

About the owner: Bill and Paula are now retired. Bill was a school teacher for over 30 years, and Paula was a school psychologist and family therapist. They have travelled in many different countries and have lived in Singapore, Fiji, and Bolivia. They are friendly and willing to provide any guidance you may need in finding all the fun places and beautiful attractions to see in the area. They live on the property, but they respect other's privacy and are available if needed.

Why the Owner Chose Atascadero, CA, USA:
We love this area, because of the beautiful location of views on every side of the property. The air is clean and crisp and you can feel 'away from it all', yet still be close enough to restaurants, beautiful beaches, hiking/walking, and fantastic wineries.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is something therapeutic about being surrounded by hills and trees and fresh air. We think you will love being semi-secluded on this hilltop perch that overlooks the north county wine country and coastal mountains.
