Quaint water tower guest room on country property. Lots of friendly animals and a fun area to explore.

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 and an alcove with a full-size bed. It's cozy and charming.
There are two small bunks on the top floor (very rustic/unfinished - bring your own sleeping bags & pillows) for two additional guests.
The bath house is located next to the water tower offering a full bath with indoor and outdoor showers and sinks. Additional 1/2 bath available in our garage.
Relax with your cup of coffee at our bistro table with a view of the Oceano dunes, dune lakes and the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Enjoy the cool ocean breeze, feed the chickens, pet the horses, relax by the pond then toast your s'mores over the bonfire 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

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We really enjoyed our stay at the water tower and exploring the surrounding property. The water tower was really cozy and comfortable. Loved the outdoor shower too! Would love to stay here again next time we are back in Arroyo Grande.

  • When we pulled up to the Doty's Ranch, we were transported to a different world - a world of hobbit hole wine cellars, adult sized seesaws and swing sets, and late night conversations around outdoor fireplaces with new friends. This was the best airbnb experience we have had - the Doty's warm welcome and their spectacular home awakened in me a desire to create beauty out of simple things. I would highly recommend their property for any guest and look forward to returning to this magical place one day!

  • This has got to be the most charming AirBnB I've ever stayed in. My husband and I were giddy when we walked into our room and discovered how wonderful it was. It's a very tight space but you don't need more! There is so much to explore on the grounds like the horses, chickens, dogs, and cats. I particularly loved all the furniture, structures, and decorations made by presumably Laura's husband? This is just a spectacular place and I wish we stayed longer than a night. We never met with Laura but we ran into her son on our way out and asked him to thank her for us. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • This is the most magical spot ever. Ben and Laura are the most amazing kind and talented people. We will continue to come back to this very perfect little haven.

  • We had a wonderful time staying in the Water Tower! We made dinner over the fire pit and Laura and Ben and the other guests joined us for wine and s'mores and story time. The bed was cozy and it was a blast exploring all the little creative nooks and crannies on the property. The outdoor shower was a special treat!

  • Laura & Ben sind angenehme Gastgeber. Ihre Kreativität und Liebe zum Detail zeigt sich durch den ganzen Hof. Die Unterkunft im Wasserturm sowie das Duschhaus waren einfach eingerichtet und sauber.
    Wer einen leichten Schlaf hat, wird wohl so einige Nachtaktivitäten wie den Hwy1, den Zug sowie den krähenden Hahn miterleben. Für uns war's kein Problem. Wir schliefen geborgen in der kleinen Kammer.

  • Super expérience. Les hôtes très accueillants, qui ont donné de nombreux conseils sur la région et endroits à visiter. Le lieu est hors du commun: entre les animaux, le jardin, le logement: on est obligé de prendre des photos! C'est un endroit facile à trouver et proche de la plage. Et tout ressemble aux photos: bons souvenirs garantis! Vous êtes libre de vous balader sur le terrain et tout est ouvert, donc pas besoin d'attendre les hôtes pour vous installer.
    A refaire!

  • We had a nice time at the water tower. Our visit was a little hectic as we were part of a family wedding and reunion that occupied all our free time, so we couldn't enjoy the property as much as we would have liked. It would have been nice to have access to a refrigerator for fruit and drinks, so we wouldn't have to go out so much. Laura was very nice and the place is really cute and cozy.

  • Don't stay here for only one night. It is a wonderland. There a so many things to explore. And you definetly want a fire at night. The watertower was so cozy where we stayed. Laura and Ben are awesome. So nice people. They really understood what airbnb is all about. They make you feel home. We would love to come back. And the cats are wonderful too and not to forget Rio the dog. Awesome place.
