The house we stayed in was really nice, exactly like shown on the pictures. The views from the house and the outside patio are beautiful. Coming from LA, we were all quite stunned by the peace and quite (literally NO NOICES!!!!) throughout the day and night. Great place to relax, recharge, and rest. The town is very small, but all necessities to live and enjoy yourself could be purchased in local stores. Both hosts (Kathy and Mark) were very well prepared to receive us as their guests and were available immediately to answer all questions. Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a great place to relax and switch off!
I was in desperate need of a house to stay in while transitioning to a new place in Nipomo. Kathy and Mark were amazingly hospitable and made their dream home available for two weeks on a last minute notice. This home is peaceful paradise ! Comfortable, clean and luxurious ! Just bring your clothes and a toothbrush.
Mark and Kathy provided us a lot of useful information before our visit. We were planning a family vacation for 10 during Christmas. And since this was during the holidays and we had a big group we got tons of information to help us plan activities outdoor and indoors.
The house was exactly what we expected when we made the reservation making for a comfortable and easy weekend trip to the central coast. The location was convenient for the golf courses we played (15 minutes to Monarch Dunes and Cypress Ridge).
Everything was clearly labeled and easy to fine.
We used the outside patio area for BBQ which was really convenient.
Would definitely stay here again, and can't wait for the pool to be completed, it looks amazing even during its construction phase.
We are so happy that you enjoyed our vacation rental and look forward to seeing you again real soon. The Golf Courses are some of the best on the Central Coast. The shopping in San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, Shell Beach, and the Downtown Arroyo Grande area is the best for the entire family to enjoy. There are tourist areas like the Dutch town of Solvang that you just cannot miss, and the wine tasting in California is Superb! We sure hope to see you again, want to thank you for visiting our humble abode! Your Gracious Hosts ~ Mark & Kathy
Remember to Always
Live ~ Love ~ Laugh
We had a wonderful stay in California. The house was very clean and spacious. We will definitely do it again if we go back to this area. Thank you so much for inviting us into your home.
It was my first time using AirBnb so I had no idea what to expect. Kathy and Mark were wonderful hosts. From the onset, they were prompt and responsive to all of my questions regarding the reservation process as well as things to do in the area. Their home is tastefully decorated with unique themes for each of the bedroom/bathroom. The kids especially like the jungle room upstairs. The patio has a spacious deck with a nice BBQ. Our family enjoyed grilling and having dinner outside on the warm summer evenings. Kathy and Mark were available for questions/concerns throughout our stay and as always, were very prompt in following up with us. You won't go wrong with having them as your hosts!
a group of us (we are all in our 20s) stayed at kathy and mark's beautiful house for labor day weekend. it was my first airbnb experience but it was absolutely amazing. the house is beautiful, with a hottub, a gorgeous patio that's overlooking mountains, super comfortable beds and a very well-stocked pantry. the location of the house is awesome as well. its a 20 minute drive to the sand dunes where we did ATV. oh my god ATV was soooo much fun! anyways, kathy is a great host, super detail oriented, responsive, and genuinely cares about her guests. we had a very memorable weekend filled with laughters and endless sunshine. Thank you Kathy and Mark!
My name is Kathy and the gentleman in the picture with me is my husband Mark. Both Mark and I are locals of the Central Coast of California and we are native born Californians. We recently moved to the Nevada area for Mark's career. We are both very outgoing and love to travel (maybe with AIRBNB we can travel more), love our family with all our being, love sports (not as much watching but more doing), enjoy reading, bike riding, swimming, boating, fishing, snow skiing, camping, hiking, exploring and adventures, remodeling homes, gardening, and we are both animal lovers (mainly cats and dogs). We loved growing up on the Central Coast of California and must tell you that our area offers so many different venues such as mountains, beaches, lakes, streams, wine vineyards, golf courses, country, and semi-city living. Additionally, the Central Coast area has grown tremendously over the years, which has brought many new and interesting people to the area providing a large variety of different lifestyles, cultures, and cuisines.
My husband Mark and I grew up in San Luis Obispo County and love everything the Central Coast has to offer and then some. Please check out all the wonderful places to visit that we have provided in the guidebook section of this site to help make your vacation the best experience possible. We are proud to say we have four beautiful adult daughters who have blessed us with nine grandchildren, and three great grandchildren, and our family is growing with every new year by leaps and bounds.
We are thankful for our guests who choose our destination and vacation home as there next wonderful journey and look forward to getting to know each of you in the near future. Thank you so much for choosing us, and we hope you have the best vacation and special memories one can experience in a lifetime! Welcome to the Central Coast of California and please come back often because there is no way you can see everything and enjoy all there is to experience and do in just one trip! Have a safe and wonderful journey! Your Hosts ~ Mark and Kathy :)
