The space

Experience the good life in the heart of California's Central Coast, Arroyo Grande. Relax in the privacy of an artfully appointed guest room that opens through French doors onto a secluded, landscaped Mediterranean-style courtyard (for your use alone). After the day's activities, sunbathe or read by the gently gurgling fountain. Sip wine or chat together under a starry night sky while enjoying the ambiance (and warmth) of a fire bowl. A bountiful breakfast featuring local, seasonal treats from the Central Coast will be served in the courtyard to a chorus of songbirds, if requested in advance and weather permits. (Breakfast served Friday, Saturday and Sunday only.)

With its own entrance, your guest room features a queen size sleigh bed (with lots of pillows and a down comforter) as well as an en suite shower and jacuzzi. Electric kettle, coffees and teas, Bose iPod speakers, hair dryer, magnifying mirror and wireless internet are also provided. Beach chairs and beach towels are also available for guest use. There is no TV in paradise.

My home is centrally located halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco on California’s spectacular Central Coast just ½ mile off the 101 in a quiet residential neighborhood. Beautiful beaches and miles of sand dunes (5 min), vineyards and wineries (5 miles) abound. Walk the piers at nearby Pismo and Avila beaches. The charming Village of Arroyo Grande (2 miles) and the culture and night life of San Luis Obispo (10 miles) are on everyone’s must-see list. (Don’t miss the Thursday night farmer’s market in SLO.) There are great restaurants to match everyone’s palate and budget, and I can provide you with a book of menus, as well as directions to local attractions.

Going a bit further north, most tourists visit Morro Rock in Morro Bay (30 miles) as well as the incredible elephant seals in Cambria (50 miles) and Hearst Castle at San Simeon. Traditional California landscapes and more wineries entice travelers to Paso Robles (45 min.) and Lake Nacimiento (one hour).

Guest access

This room is separate from the house with its own private entrance and does not have kitchen facilities.

Gay was such a wonderful host! The breakfast in the mornings made it extra special to stay with Gay! And we loved the conversations. I wish we could have stayed longer! The location is excellent as well; only 5-10 minutes from the beach, and it was so quiet and peaceful staying in the beautiful room.

Gay's airbnb is a peaceful retreat, with a comfortable bed, beautiful art, spa-like bathroom and a lovely garden patio area to drink your coffee in the morning. Gay is a gracious, generous and a friendly host and I hope to be able to stay there again someday.

Elegant in a simple way. I enjoyed the artwork on the walls. Large bathroom. Very clean and quiet. A very nice enclosed courtyard at the front of the house made the place even more peaceful.

Had an absolutely wonderful time at this property. Gay is a delightful and thoughtful host, and had plenty of suggestions for food and activities near by. She even has an amazing binder full of all the to dos in the vicinity. The room is clean and spacious, and Gay interacts as much or as little as the guests want. I would recommend her 11/10 if I could! Definitely have this spot in mind for when we come back!

This was our first time trying Airbnb so we didn't really know what to expect but let's just say Gay has set the bar quite high as a host. Her place is absolutely gorgeous and the secluded patio entrance to the room makes coming and going a breeze. The room is equipt with most anything you'd need and Gay's breakfast is a delicious little treat. I would definitely stay here again.

My boyfriend and I took a weekend birthday trip and stayed at Gay's place. The location was amazing, a quick drive to several beaches and other fun things to see/do. The room was great and had everything we could possibly need. Gay was a fantastic host and makes a great breakfast. Can't wait to stay there again!

Hi there. I look forward to meeting you. A little about myself . . . I’m a corporate communication strategist. I’ve lived in Pittsburgh, Washington, DC, Boston, Milwaukee and Los Angeles before moving to this gorgeous, friendly part of the world. I’m a life-long art collector and artist. I’ve travelled far (Europe, Africa, Asia and the Carribbean) and wide (all 50 fabulous states in the U.S.) and have decided it’s time to return all the hospitality I’ve received over the years during my own travels. Let me know your interests, and I’ll try to point you in the right direction! I look forward to hosting you.
