About the Property

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, Sleeps 6 (4 Preferred)

Relax, recharge and escape to this luxurious retreat experience in paradise

- Best view in SLO County!
- Luxury Accommodations
- Indoor/Outdoor living
- Pet Friendly
- Wifi + 3 Smart TVs
- Hotel Clean & Comfort
- 12 minutes to SLO
- TESLA Charging Station (complimentary)

Pictures don’t do justice to the unforgettable mountain top views of the Pacific Ocean, Seven Sisters (extinct volcanoes), rolling hills, mountains, valleys and flickering lights of San Luis Obispo.

The exceptional 8-acre mountain top property (halfway between SF and LA) has two bedrooms, chef’s kitchen and a large, elegantly appointed bathroom. Indoor areas transition seamlessly into outdoor living and dining spaces through French doors and large windows. The huge 500 square foot private deck provides a comfortable place to read, relax (honor wine & champagne bar) or dine (BBQ equipped) while taking in the commanding views.

Appointed with new premium fixtures, furniture, amenities and high-speed Wi-Fi throughout. Complimentary onsite electric car (Tesla, etc) charging station. This dedicated vacation rental is professionally cleaned (fresh linens, towels, etc.) and a hotel quality experience awaits your arrival. Accommodates up to six guests, with four being ideal.

The grounds feature complimentary fresh eggs from the chicken coop and seasonal vegetables from our raised beds, gardens, koi pond, "Walter's" tortoise habitat and an incredible vista of wildlife, particularly birds who frequent our feeders and popular roosting tree.

This coastal retreat halfway between LA and SF is a short 15 minute scenic drive to downtown SLO (Thursday Night Farmer’s Market, Cal Poly, restaurants, nightlife etc.) and beautiful Avila Beach (spectacular beach, pier, shops, wineries, etc). Famous Avila and Sycamore Mineral Springs offer a therapeutic experience in a group setting or privately in secluded tubs set amongst the tree-canopied hillside. You are in a serene and peaceful setting, but not too far from all the action!

Vista House is hard to leave once you arrive, with wonderful hikes, incredible natural surroundings and bountiful wildlife. Stock up at the Whole Foods at the bottom of the hill and settle in for a memorable experience!

USA Today calls San Luis Obispo 'The Happiest Place on earth'. The coastal retreat half way between LA and SF is ideal - a short 15-minute scenic drive to downtown SLO (Thursday Night Farmer’s Market, restaurants, nightlife etc.) or beautiful Avila Beach (spectacular beach, pier, shops, wineries, etc). Outdoor recreational activities are everywhere!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Some of our favorite things are our home and friends, preparing meals and enjoying our animals including our rescued golden retrievers Bourbon & Cider (@bourbonandcider), Walter the Tortoise, Chickens, Koi, Ryan's Tropical Fish and Anna's Ball Python. Our favorite place is Big Sur, we enjoy movies at the Sunset Drive-In in SLO, when friends visit and preparing meals with vegetables from our gardens, local farm stands and farmer's markets. Our favorite trip was to Italy, where we stayed in VRBO's and got engaged. We realized that less places and longer stays are the best. We like to visit communities and experience authentic people, activities and food. Our favorite lodging places are Ventana in Big Sur for the spas, the Four Seasons in Palo Alto for the service, The Mayflower in SF for the experience and our friends floors to hang out and save money. :) We truly love the serenity and views here and are very happy to have the opportunity to share this place with travelers from around the world. We appreciate and do not take for granted that guests chose us, stay with us and like the experience. Anna enjoys creating artistic things like calligraphy, creating letters, crafts and care packages for friends and family, growing vegetables in her raised beds, hot springs and caring for her chickens. Ryan likes serving guests, maintaining and improving the vacation rentals everyday, helping others create, plan and execute new ideas, planing trips and getaways and purchasing unnecessary products, services and anything else they sell on Amazon Prime. We are grateful for the gift of life Ryan received on November 2, 2015 when he was given a heart transplant. We like to spend time together puttering around our home and enjoying our property and the wonderful people who visit us. Anna & Ryan.

Why the Owner Chose San Luis Obispo, CA, USA:
This is the best vacation rental in SLO. This is a countryside luxury escape with outstanding views on top of a mountain half way between LA and SF at the gates of the Pacific Highway through Big Sur and 10 minutes from SLO (Whole Foods, Costco, Bevmo, etc. Downtown, Farmer's Markets, Cal Poly, etc.) - Secluded and peaceful, close to SLO, unforgettable views, new luxury everything - Perfect.
