About this listing


Romantic & private detached casita - Casa de Los Sueños: 1 bedroom comfy Queen, bathroom with double basins and cozy heated floor, kitchen and living area, fireplace, laundry, secluded & totally private deck, solar energy, zen and peaceful on 3 acre property.
Minutes to wineries, beaches, hiking trails, San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, Avila Beach...

The space

Designed in the unique Santa Fe style architecture, Casa de Los Sueños (House of Dreams) has a very special ambiance. Your romantic and private one bedroom casita is perfect for a couple's weekend getaway, but with all the activity options of the Central Coast and amenities of home, it would be even better for longer stays!

At Casa de Los Sueños you'll find a comfy queen bed with fresh quality linens, ample towels, double basin sinks, stocked with the basics like soaps, shampoo/conditioner, hairdryer, even a washer and dryer...And Pete's Coffee for your first few days with us! The Central Coast has very moderate weather year round, with the exception of a few days per year, but just in case they occur during your visit you can enjoy a nice breeze from the bedroom and living room ceiling fans.

Feel free to grab our beach towels and picnic tote we've left for you to borrow, and head to the beach or some of our country road wineries for a day of leisurely exploration. Plan a visit to one of our many Farmer's Markets and prepare a delicious meal in your fully equipped kitchen (full-size fridge, stove-top, convection oven, dishwasher), or grill some fresh caught fish out on your secluded deck as you sip some Edna Valley wine.

After a day of taking in our beaches, trails, and wineries, unwind in front of the fireplace, catch a little satellite TV on one of the two flat screens (living room and bedroom), or use the WiFi and surf the internet looking for current local events for tomorrow's adventure. (WiFi password details are in your Welcome Book)

We've tried to be as eco-friendly as possible, both with design and lifestyle, so you will notice shaded terraces and decks to keep the house cool, drought resistant landscape, solar energy, bamboo flooring in kitchen and living room, etc. Since California is in a drought, please help us to minimize water use.

Guest access

You will have full use of the casita, its completely private deck, and bbq. There is designated parking for one car right next to the casita (please let us know if you require 2 spots). In addition to the deck, there is a sitting area in front of the casita AND coming in June, a new guest courtyard for your enjoyment - pictures coming soon!
The area beyond the gate between the main house and the casita are off limits to guests in order to keep our dogs safe. We need the gate to always be closed and latched, as they have free reign in this area.

Interaction with guests

We live on the 3 acre property, in the main house with our standard poodle (although their breed is hypoallergenic, please be assured that the Casa de Los Suenos casita and Corazon Sagrado room are completely pet-free zones, even from them).

We keep busy schedules, but will make every effort to greet you when you arrive. In the event that is not possible (especially for late check-ins), we will prearrange the details via email and make sure you have access, (and you can reach us on our cell phones).

Should you like privacy and seclusion, we are happy to oblige (the casita is perfect for this), but if you prefer more interaction, we are happy to tell you about the highlights of the area and make suggestions on where to eat and what to do, perhaps over a glass of wine!

Other things to note

Elise & Frank's place was more than I could have asked for! They were the friendliest, most gracious hosts I've had through Air B'nB. Check-in was seamless. The overview I received of how everything worked or where to locate things was thorough. Elise had prepared a manual for visitors that covers everything from restaurants, activities, to check out procedures. The casita itself is very private and felt homey from the moment I got there. Elise was as available as you wanted/needed her to be and responded quickly through text when I need restaurant recommendations. I honestly can't wait to come back (I'm there often for work) and stay for the weekend with them again.

This place is lovely! Very romantic and homey. Be sure to have a bonfire at Grover Beach 5 mins away. Elise and Frank are very kind and hospitable.

As a repeat guest here, I can't recommend it enough. Elise and Frank are the coolest and sweetest folks. And, their Hacienda is a gorgeous retreat in an amazing location.

Elise was a great host. It was great to be welcomed with wine, tea, fruit bars, map of the area etc. The home is unique and well decorated. The area is away and hidden in the hills. Best for people who want a small and cozy secluded retreat.

Elise and Frank own an absolutely beautiful home in Arroyo Grande. The home was exactly as they described on the website. Very zen like setup and they take extra care to make you feel comfortable and enjoy your stay. Elise even had a non alcoholic apple cider for my pregnant wife to enjoy on her birthday! Very close to Pismo / Avila beach. Would definitely come back here and would recommend this place to anyone visiting the Pismo / Arroyo Grande area. Thank you Elise and Frank!

We loved our stay at Casa de Los Suenos! Elise and Frank have thought of everything to make guests feel comfortable, relaxed and very much at home. Just bring yourselves, your bag and some provisions in case you want to make meals. Literally one of the only Airbnbs in our many years of travels that has stocked the places with laundry detergent, emergency kit, toiletries, dish soap, dishwashing liquid, cooking oil, spices, coffee, tea, water, etc. We really appreciated all the hard work and care Elise and Frank put into making guests feel like they are truly getting away from it all but within reach of them if we had any questions. We could not agree more with the rest of the glowing reviews on airbnb. This spot is very close to the village of Arroyo Grande (great butcher downtown if you want to buy some local tri-tip, artisan sausage, game meats, delicious smoky bacon or some treats for your pooch), eating with the seasons at Ember, wine tasting, pismo, SLO, and all that the coast has the offer, including Sebastian's. Do yourselves a favor and book at least 3 nights to take advantage of all the fun activities available in the area!

Elise & Frank User ProfileElise & Frank is a superhost.

We are lovers of people, travel and adventure, and although we travel the world extensively, we feel there is no better place to call home than California's beautiful Central Coast.

With the abundance of local activities, you are likely to spot us out hiking, kayaking, at a yoga class, music event or wine tasting in Edna Valley or Paso Robles. We also enjoy history and exploring archaeological sites, road trips in our trailer, river rafting, canyoneering and rappelling.

We love sharing our special haven, tucked back on 3 acres that Frank lovingly tends to, and are here to help make sure your stay in the San Luis Obispo area is both relaxing, and eventful. If you have a question about the area we can point you in the right direction ensuring the best possible experiences.

5 things we love best when we travel are a clean dwelling, comfy bed, luxurious linens, good coffee, and a helpful host...we're betting that you do too!
