About Shari Bone
I am a property manager and manage a number of vacation rentals in San Luis Obispo. Why not do my own? Santa Margarita is a great central location and so close to many amenities, not to mention all the amenities that Santa Margarita has to offer.
Shari Bone purchased this Cottage in 1981
Why Shari Bone chose Santa Margarita
My husband has owned this property for 35 years and I have lived here for close to 20. We lived in our little back house when we were first together, with our four kids, and it has always been a very special house for us. We went from the back house to the front house and remodeled both homes for our blended family. After a number of years, we purchased the property next door, and now have this quaint little slice of heaven to share with you. We think you will find it enchanting and comfortable and will want to return.
What makes this Cottage unique
Very close (2 blocks) to town, quiet, private, small yard, bar-b-que, and relaxation. Fifteen minutes to San Luis Obispo. Only twenty minutes to great beaches There is great hiking around Santa Margarita Lake and San Luis Obispo has many, many hiking trails of all levels. In town there are places to eat, a wine tasting room with snacks, brew pub, library, post office, collectibles and a furniture store. Great town for walking.

Step Away from the World
What a wonderful week we spent at Shari’s place with our son. Being VRBO frequent flyers, we found her cottage to be one of the best. Close to all types of outdoor adventures, including restaurants and shops within walking distance. The amenities were first class.
Thanks, Shari, for a great visit to the Central Coast.
Nice, quiet place!
We loved our stay here. The house had all the amenities you could possibly need along with a nice yard. The house is in a quiet little neighborhood, within walking distance to town. Shari was very kind and accommodating and allowed us to bring our dog. We enjoyed every second of this place.
Wow! Would certainly love for you to return sometime. Thank you so much.
Shari was a friendly host.
Lovely and fully furnished. Fluffy towels, crisp sheets and great kitchen. Close proximity to wine country.
Great cottage and owners in Santa Margarita CA
We found this great Santa Margarita (vrbo#854007) cottage (20 miles from the ocean) in this quiet (good dog walking) town between Atascadero and San Luis Obispo and stayed for 8 nights in February 2018. Shari & Tim were terrific landlords providing help with any request. The cottage was equipped even better than listed on the website. There literally was nothing that we needed that was not provided. We drove up CA#1 to the road closure 20 miles north of the Hearst Castle, stopped at several State Beaches (Avila, Morro Bay, Cayucos & Cambria), drove scenic CA41, CA46, and a fun drive up CA229 to Creston (check out the Long Branch Saloon in Creston for a welcome surprise and a great meal). Also, check out Mission San Miguel Archangel for an impressive history lesson. This vrbo is comfortable stay, a good location for a variety of day trips and quiet scenic drives.

Five Star Vacation Rental!
My husband and I have stayed in numerous vacation rentals over the years, both in the U.S. and abroad. Never have we seen such attention to detail and comfort as in this charming cottage in the peaceful town of Santa Margarita. As a vacationer, you can literally pack just a toothbrush and a change of clothes, because the house is equipped with everything you need: full-size refrigerator, great stove/oven, fluffy towels aplenty, hairdryer, cooking pans and utensils, binder offering maps and guides for this region, etc. etc. If you can think of it, the owners have already provided it. Also, the house is immaculate and well-maintained, with a lovely little covered patio in the back yard for al fresco dining. We couldn't have asked for anything better and highly recommend this location for an enjoyable getaway.
Thank you so much for your review. We truly love the place and I am glad it shows. Thank you for the fix it job, saving me a holiday service call, and leaving it in excellent condition. Please come back soon.
Santa Margarita is an outstanding small town in San Luis Obispo County. We are centrally located and in the middle of our fabulous wine country. Tour our wine region from Paso Robles to Edna Valley from this convenient central location. Santa Margarita is home to Ancient Peaks Winery with California Adventures (zip line, tours, kayaking and more), The Range Restaurant, The Porch Deli & Coffee, Southern Station Restaurant, Dunbar Brewing, The "R" Bar owned by The Range and shopping at the antique mall, gift shops and art studio.
Our weather can be cooler then Paso; we benefit from the ocean fog rolling over the mountains that backdrop our community. Santa Margarita is a fine place for relaxing walks and biking around town. You will fall in love with Santa Margarita and its convenience to San Luis Obispo, beaches, beach towns, Paso Robles and other famous attractions.
