This single story ranch style home is situated on 1.5 acres in the foot-hills just behind the Pacific Ocean on the Central Coast of California. It is located half way up the 'lane'' on a very quiet 'dead end' street. Beautiful hill and valley views abound from the front yard and are the best at sunset from the 'perch' at the top of the property. It is just a short 5 minute drive to any one of the local '5 cities' establishments and the beach. Oceano and Grover Beaches allow driving your vehicle on to the sand in order to pick your own spot on the 5 mile stretch. Pismo and Avila Beaches have 'fishing' piers and sandy beaches for sunbathing. Many good restaurants abound within walking distance from the piers. After a day at the beach relax in the hot tub in the oaks behind the back fence which is totally private and holds 2-3 adults comfortably. A great way to 'warm up' on a 'chilly' evenings is to enjoy the hot tub and then 'cozy' up to the fireplace in the living room and watch a movie or play games. Basketball and Horseshoe courts are on the property for your enjoyment. Taking walks on the hilly streets in the area provide good exercise. This property is away from the beach so it is always warmer with less 'marine layer' to contend with. You will love this property and the area which is located just the right distance from the traffic and city lights of the beach cities.

About Bill & Brenda Hackmann
Brenda and I first moved to the Central Coast from South Dakota in 1983. We started a family and lived in Grover Beach for 8 years. Decided to move out of the city in 1992 and found a spot that was still close to the beaches but very quiet.
Bill & Brenda Hackmann purchased this House in 1992
Why Bill & Brenda Hackmann chose Arroyo Grande
We decided we needed more room and wanted to get away from the crowds and fog near the beach. This house was perfect for raising our 2 children and dogs.
What makes this House unique
Very quiet setting. No street lights. Excellent stargazing. Beautiful sunsets from the 'swing' at the top of the property. One acre 'fenced' yard for privacy and pets. Hot Tub on a new deck in the oaks behind the back fence.

Best location! Close to everything in beautiful area and relaxing environment!
Gorgeous lot! Perfect for a family group/gathering. The house was large and fit everyone well. We loved the wood burning stove! Warmed the main area well, the heater also worked well and there were space heaters for the rooms if you needed an extra boost. Beds were comfortable and good size. Kitchen was nice with island, could use a little more variety of some pots and pans for big group dinners but we enjoyed cooking there. We didn’t use the hot tub this trip but it is a great addition and would love to use it in future. The only con was the room in the garage has a smell, the house is older and we didn’t mind that but there is a smell that might affect those with sensitive noses.
The location is in the beautiful countryside and an easy drive to San Luis Obispo in 20 min or 10 min drive to the beach or 5 min drive to stores/grocery/ and some restaurants.
We were so thankful they were able to get us in last minute and accommodate us. So peaceful and great family time!!
Our family really enjoyed our week at your place
It was comfortable, quiet, and very private. The beds were comfortable too. While in the area, we enjoyed surfing, the quad ATV rentals, the biking trails, and the overall cool climate and beauty of this part of the of the Pacific coast. We did our best to fulfill your exit instructions. We would enjoy coming again another summer. Blessings on you. :)
Beautiful property with a spa, horseshoe pit, mountain top swing, and lots of grass
We had a couple minor issues (the plumbing backed up) a previous tenant flushed baby wipes down the toilet (who does that?!?!) Anyway, Brenda had a plumber over the same day and she even did our dishes for us while she was waiting for the plumber.
Bill and Brenda worked with us and the issues we had and were very responsive and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.
A nice home away from home!
We needed a place while our house was being repaired.
I felt very comfortable at Casa Hackman and the owners always responded quickly when we had any questions during our stay. Everything you need is at the house. The hot tub and the wood stove were a treat. Very nice area off the coast only a couple miles. As quiet as it gets at night. Thanks again.
A home away from home, truly.
The home was really like a home away from home. We all enjoyed the space and comfort it provided and had all the amenities one could want. Not to mention the wood burning fireplace, so cozy. Bedrooms were a nice size, with large
closets w/plenty of hangers to put your clothes away. The beds were great, slept there better
than home. (maybe I need a new bed) .
Large dining table with eight chairs, which we used for many meals, including our Christmas
dinner. We are planning to rent this home again this year. Ed & Ed Palm Desert, Ca.
Casa Hickman great "Home Away"
This was my first experience with HomeAway (always used AirBnB); the property owner was quick to respond to questions and concerns regarding Check-in and check out. Property mgr. Quick response to texts. Customer Service GREAT!
While the home is a bit dated, you will not find one as spacious, comfortable (beds really comfortable) and affordable for a large group as Casa Hickman; private and safe for children - property fenced with gates so kids could play outside on big front lawn or back cement patio area. Located in the countryside, on a quiet rural road (go slow at night, there are deer), but just a few minutes off Fwy 101 and 10 - 20 minutes from all the major central coast beach towns - Grover, Pismo, Avila, SLO - stores, restaurants, beach, etc all within a quick drive. LOVED the roominess of this property - inside and out - great to host family dinners (BBQ there) for rest of our group staying in SLO and Shell Beach. Internet and TV a bit spotty, but for us - this was about family time: beach during day - nights: puzzles, games (There are some there), food, conversation (kids loved Jacuzzi) - we will never book anywhere but Casa Hickman for future family rental on central coast.
Highly recommend If you like space, comfort, quiet countryside away from city lights and noise, but minutes to all major beaches.
