SAN LUIS OBISPO: “THE HAPPIEST PLACE IN AMERICA"
The "Irish Hills House" at the top of Prefumo Canyon has the Best View in SLO with stunning 180-degree views stretching from ocean, valley, mountain and cityscape. This spot is about the incredible view, convenient proximity to SLO and Cal Poly, central location between LA & SF and surrounding activities and experiences.
Most common guest comment, "The photos do not do the views justice!"
Our pet-friendly vacation rental has two bedrooms with a king bed downstairs and three queen beds upstairs. We store an additional reserve queen size futon, roll away bed and a 2014 "Pack n' Play" for babies. There are bathrooms on each level, a large outfitted modern kitchen, potbelly stove for cozy nights and a large outdoor deck. There are great views from every window!
The coastal retreat halfway between LA and SF is a short 15 minute scenic drive to downtown SLO (Thursday Night Farmer's Market, restaurants, nightlife etc.) and beautiful Avila Beach (spectacular beach, pier, shops, wineries, etc). Famous Avila and Sycamore Mineral Springs offer a therapeutic experience in a group setting or privately in secluded tubs set amongst the tree-canopied hillside. You are in a serene and peaceful setting, but not too far from all the action!
We are on 8 mountain top acres with world class views, hikes and wildlife right outside your door. Barbecue, share a meal and wine on the deck or picnic down by the raised garden beds. We invite our guests to enjoy fresh vegetables and eggs from the gardens and henhouse, so help yourself! In addition to our chickens, we have a pet tortoise named "Walter" and a Koi Pond in front of the Irish Hills House.
The vacation rental is well suited to romantic & girls getaways, family friendly & cal poly parents stays, adventure seekers & coastal journeys.
This is a dedicated Airbnb, which is professionally cleaned before each guest's arrival with clean and fresh, sheets and towels. The house is maintained in pristine condition in preparation to offer a "hotel-clean" experience amongst breathtaking mountain-top views in nature and tranquility.
The Irish Hills House is across a deck from our main home. We respect boundaries and the experience is intimate and free of distraction.
We run almost full occupancy, so if you see an opening and you are ready - please book! It happens too often that we discuss a booking with a potential guest and someone else "instant books". This is always a bummer!
See you soon!

Some of our favorite things are our home and friends, preparing meals and enjoying our animals including our rescued golden retrievers Bourbon & Cider (@bourbonandcider), Walter the Tortoise, Chickens, Koi, Ryan's Tropical Fish and Anna's Ball Python.
Our favorite place is Big Sur, we enjoy movies at the Sunset Drive-In in SLO, when friends visit and preparing meals with vegetables from our gardens, local farm stands and farmer's markets.
Our favorite trip was to Italy, where we stayed in Airbnb's and got engaged. We realized that less places and longer stays are the best. We like to visit communities and experience authentic people, activities and food.
Our favorite lodging places are Ventana in Big Sur for the spas, the Four Seasons in Palo Alto for the service, The Mayflower in SF for the experience and our friends floors to hang out and save money. :)
We get excited when we get good reviews and positive comments at our Airbnb's (@visitvista). We truly love the serenity and views here and are very happy to have the opportunity to share this place with travelers from around the world. We appreciate and do not take for granted that guests chose us, stay with us and like the experience.
Anna enjoys creating artistic things like calligraphy, creating letters, crafts and care packages for friends and family, growing vegetables in her raised beds, hot springs and caring for her chickens.
Ryan likes serving guests, maintaining and improving the vacation rentals everyday, helping others create, plan and execute new ideas, planing trips and getaways and purchasing unnecessary products, services and anything else they sell on Amazon Prime.
We are grateful for the gift of life Ryan received on November 2, 2015 when he was given a heart transplant. We like to spend time together puttering around our home and enjoying our property and the wonderful people who visit us.
Anna & Ryan.
