Nice lawns and quiet country setting to take a walk with Dana Adobe Historical Land Site just a few blocks up the Road just walking distance from the Vacation Rental
Had a great time! The house very comfortably hosted our 3 generation family. There was space for the kids and grand parents alike. Everything we needed was easily accessible and both the back patio and indoor areas made it easy to entertain. The pool table added extra enjoyment.
Great house, very nice decoration. The location is pretty convenient, closed to grocery stores, about 5 mins drive, and to the beaches, about 10-15 mins drive. The pool table is a nice addition to the venue.
It may be good for adult only gathering. Not sure if it's good for families with young kids or babies. There are two dogs from the neighbor kept barking after 10:30pm and some VERY loud birds started chirping around 5am and stopped around 7:30am. I guess that's not something the owner can control.
The house manual/instruction is very detailed. However, the owner requires the guests to clean the house before leaving. I totally understand all guests shouldn't leave a dirty house behind, but the amount of work that the owner requires made me question why the cleaning fee is so high. We need to take all the bed sheets, pillowcases, towels to the laundry, do all the dishes and pots, clean all the counter areas, take out all the trash of the house and vacuum the house, it seems like what's left for the house cleaning person to do is to make the bed and put away clean dishes.
Anyhow, overall, it's still a nice house to stay in, especially for the day.
The check-out procedures that every guest receives beforehand in an email explains what is required to leave the home. We do not require guests to clean the house. The information provided asks that guests please wipe up any spills that may occur right away, and with the ant population searching for food and water, we ask that the guests please clean up any spills that are sticky, keep food off of counter tops, and to put away anything that ants may wander into. These are only suggestions and precautions to ensure the guest does not end up with an ant nightmare while staying at the vacation rental. We do ask that the beds slept in are stripped so the cleaning personnel know which bedding to launder (to spare wear and tear of linens), and to put the wet towels separate down the laundry chute. Also, we ask that the dishes be put in the dishwasher if any upon check-out, and to turn on the dishwasher before the guests check-out. Additionally, we provide instruction to shut off all lights, televisions, stereos, fans, and lock the doors before setting the alarm. Other than these instructions, we never ask the guest to clean the bathrooms, toilets, showers, sweep and mop floors, dust the pictures and fan blades, vacuum (unless the guest or children track in mud or sand that would cause stains to the carpet), dust and polish the hardwood and furniture, clean the fridges, clean the blinds, windows, wipe down the appliances, clean the BBQ outside, put the dishes away, do the laundry, make the beds, or wash the towels, wash the patio down and patio furniture, water the plants, or restock the house. We did redo the check-out procedures to ensure the guests understand we never ask them to clean the home as our house cleaners do, We do make suggestions in case there is a mess to clean up. We leave cleaning products, dish washing pods, dish soap, laundry detergent, and bounce in case a guest needs to do some laundry while they are visiting, or dishes that need cleaned during their stay. We do not have a service to turn down beds each night or to change the sheets, and therefore if the guests would like clean linens or have an accident they can wash their linens for a fresh bed when needed.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Easily able to accommodate our party of 7. We really enjoyed the patio with the outdoor kitchen and view. The grill works excellent. The home has easy access to the freeway and places like pismo beach, avila beach, or solvang are not far away. The owners were very available for any questions.
Mark and Kathy were great hosts. In the days leading up to our stay, they were very good about getting us all the info we needed to enjoy our time and when we got there they made sure that we had everything we needed. The house is wonderful and the neighborhood and town of Nipomo are awesome! It was a bit of a bummer to walk out on the back deck and see that empty pool, but that was not an issue. And the beach is better anyway!
Kathy and Mark
What a treat to have this gorgeous view and delightful home to stay in on our first trip back to the Central Coast. We felt so at home - all 10 of us! Having this oasis made the wedding weekend even more special. The views of the hills are reminiscent of our home in Paso Robles. We loved the feeling of being in the country, and yet minutes from civilization.
From horseshoes with my 9-year-old grandson, to cooking family breakfasts in the fabulous kitchen, to enjoyable evenings in the spa, this has been a rare treat for me after a couple intense years at work. Everything is laid out so well, equipped so well, clean and bright - we felt so well cared for, as if we were family.
Thank for sharing your home with us during such an important family weekend. The quality of the property, and the obvious care you take to make it welcoming and organized, are nearly unrivaled in our experience.
Not to be crass in discussing money while extolling the virtues of the property, but this is a tremendous value for the price - and we compared nearly 100 properties trying to find just the right place on a very crowded 4th of July weekend. It was meant to be.
We highly recommend this property. It's an unexpected jewel in Nipomo.
What a wonderful stay in this beautiful vacation home. My family and I enjoyed a long weekend stay for my sisters graduation. Was a great alternative to separate rooms in a hotel and a more affordable option as well. We loved sitting in the large comfy living room and sharing stories and making coffee in the morning in the spacious kitchen. Very quiet and clean. The themed rooms and decorations made it very quaint and personal. Also, a gorgeous view! I would recommend this to any family or group wanting to have a comfy, homey stay!
