Great Home, Expansive Yard, Nice Owners, Hope to Return
Six of us adults stayed here for a wedding in Arroyo Grande and we would love to stay here again. Everything is clean, neat, and accommodating. My (adult) children said repeatedly how much they liked not only the house, but the neighborhood as well. We all loved staying in such a warm, comfy home over separate hotel rooms. It was cheaper too! In addition to the three beds in separate rooms, there is a queen air mattress that can be used in the living room. (NOTE: bring 4 D batteries for the pump if you plan to use it - there were none in the pump, but we managed to blow it up with a hair dryer.) Speaking of hair dryers, there is one there. Plenty of parking! We sat out in the backyard in the evening after dinner and enjoyed seeing the stars and the beginnings of the August meteor shower. If you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs. There's a rooster in the neighborhood but I'm the only one who heard it - probably because I slept in the back room near the backyard. No one else heard it. The kitchen is well-equipped and clean. It's small, but completely efficient if there are only two people in there. So much better than a hotel for this many people. It's a quiet neighborhood and the home is on a large piece of property - at least an acre I'd guess. Makes for a nice stay. The owner even left us home-grown tomatoes from their garden! We discovered Pismo Beach nearby - took about 20-30 minutes to get there and you can DRIVE on the BEACH. Totally new experience for us. It was really fun. You don't have to schlep all your stuff from a parking lot.... just drive up and park where you want, set up and done. $5.00 day fee. Get there early to avoid the long line to pay to get in. The sand is compact so you don't need FWD. Just need to watch the tides. If you have quads or sand dune vehicles, there are a lot of dunes there to explore if you're in to that. Thursday night Farmer's Market in San Luis Obispo is a wonderful experience. About 15 miles north and worth the drive. It is known for pulled-pork and tri-tip sandwiches and grilled corn on the cob, as well as many restaurants, shops, and of course local farmers' farm stands. I believe it runs every Thursday from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm.http://downtownslo.com/farmers-market/ NO PETS allowed at the SLO Farmers' Market. If you like beer, be sure and check out Firestone Grille.... very popular in SLO. My family really likes 805 (brand of beer) they have there. The tri-tip can't be beat.
Sunny and spacious backyard is fully fence 3/4 acre near golf course and beach
