The space

This adorable water tower is located on our 4-acre ranchette with an ocean view. This 1930's tower was rescued from demolition and converted into a small guest room. There is a small sitting area (7x7') and an alcove with a full-size bed (6x7'). It's cozy and charming. Think Tiny Home.
Our cute & quirky bath house features both indoor and outdoor showers! The bath house is shared with other guests and towels are provided. Additional 1/2 baths available in our garage and near the shop.
You will find an electric kettle and coffee press, along with coffee, tea and instant oatmeal in a self-serve cabinet on the side of the bath house. Enjoy the cool ocean breeze, pet the horses, relax by the pond then toast your s'mores over the fire in the evening.
Sorry, no pets allowed.
Conveniently located next to Pacific Coast Highway 1 on "The Mesa".
Nearby attractions: Pismo Beach, Avila Beach, San Luis Obispo, Wine Country, Pismo Outlets, Golf & Antiques. Go to for more info on our area.
