*Dear Guests- Our calendar is currently open through the end of September. If you're you're looking farther out; feel free to message us for availability.* Make your trip to the Central Coast one you'll remember by staying in a real Lifeguard Tower! We've converted an authentic lifeguard tower into a tree fort/bedroom! We've recently added an art shed with dedicated workspace/ creation space for guest use. We've also added another half bath so we can now comfortably host families of 5!

The space
***We're following Airbnb's cleaning protocol to help protect against COVID 19. Please see Airbnb's website to read more about the cleaning specifics. It's everyone's responsibility to help stop the spread of this virus so if you have symptoms or are feeling sick, please cancel your stay. Thank you!***

The Boathouse & Tower #2 sit approximately 43 ft. behind the main house at the back of our property. When you enter, you'll walk through the red gate, up our driveway, and back to the left of our garage where you'll see the two units. We've also recently added an art shed that has dedicated workspace/ creation space for our guests use.

One of the best features of our property is the large PLAYGROUND* that's fun for kids and adults alike! You won't need to entertain your kids here, as there's plenty to do! Although we're continuously changing things, the main features of the playground are: trampoline, play fort, swings, relaxation teepee, and kids roller coaster.

If you're kids are homeschooling or you're working remotely, we're a great choice for you're vacation. Work in the new art shed or do your Zoom calls in the tower and take your breaks on the playground!

We're in the City of Arroyo Grande, in a residential neighborhood, two blocks off the main thoroughfare called Grand Ave. The nearest beach access is at the end of Grand Ave; 2 miles from the house or a 5 minute drive. There's also a bike lane that starts 1 block over from our house that goes to the beach. Downtown Pismo Beach & the pier is a 10 minute drive/ 4 miles away. We're conveniently located and within walking distance to grocery stores, coffee houses, restaurants, and convenience stores.

The Boathouse is a studio that has one queen bed, full kitchen, full bath with tub shower, and one full sized couch sleeper, large closet, and washer/dryer. It's been remodeled with a nautical feel. Our unique feature is Tower #2; an authentic re-purposed lifeguard tower pulled off the sands of Pismo Beach that's been converted into a tree fort! We also have an outdoor shower and a half bath for guest use. When you book with us you get these units for your private lodging plus use of the art shed, playground, and private patio.

We've tried to provide everything you need for a convenient trip. The kitchen is equipped with cooking tools, dishes, flatware, blender, etc., so you can prepare your own meal if you like. We provide coffee, assorted teas, creamers, sugar, assorted snacks, and even supplies for S'mores! We have beach towels, beach chairs, sunshade, and sand toys for your use and provide basic toiletries too. There's a washer/dryer in case you're on a long trip and need to catch up on some laundry (we even provide the detergent)! The Boathouse has both heating and air conditioning. The beds (2 queens & 1 full) are high quality memory foam mattresses that provide a very comfortable night's rest. Enjoy the sunset from the deck of Lifeguard Tower #2 or take a spin to Pismo on beach cruisers that we provide with a little advance notice. Roast s'mores and converse by the gas fire pit at night on the private patio.

Our space is best suited for couples, small families, or 3 singles. Although we have three beds, we keep our guest count to a maximum of 5, as we have to be cognizant of our impact on the neighborhood in terms of noise and traffic.

Guests staying in Tower #2 must feel comfortable navigating a spiral staircase as well as climbing into a bunk style bed. They'll also have to go out and down to use the restroom in the art shed at night. Tower #2 is not big by any means, but we've equipped it with many comforts such as a safe and efficient heater to keep you warm on cool nights, a smart television with NVIDIA gaming system, and a sound machine. On warmer days you can open the sky vent and we also have a small fan but it never really gets too hot up there. The Tower is better insulated than a tent or a tepee but it's not as quiet as sleeping in a real home. If you're a really light sleeper, it's probably not the right situation for you. But, for many it's a fun and interesting place to sleep and one you will certainly never forget!

We invite you to come & play on the Central Coast and experience a truly unique Air'BnB' home. Channel your inner Mitch Buchannon as you sleep in the Lifeguard Tower or throw your kids up there and let them play video games while you relax on the patio! Get caught up on your work while your kids enjoy the large playground! However you decide, we look forward to hosting you soon!

*Please remember that the Playground is a shared space with our 7 year old son, our family, and dogs. We've been adjusting to each guest's comfort level in terms of Coronavirus and how they feel interacting with us and our son. We always wear masks around our guests for their peace of mind. Guests can let us know their preference with our son playing simultaneously or not. We can divide time/ alternate playground use if needed, but we can't provide the playground exclusively for stays as it's a very important part of our child's life and development. We provide hand sanitizer, wipes, and Lysol for guests to sanitize equipment as they feel necessary. Our dogs also enjoy the backyard, so please consider whether you're okay with dogs or not. They're both very sweet and playful. We still find it interesting that some guests book who are afraid of dogs or whose children are scared of them, even though it's stated that we have animals. Please don't do this as we then have to keep them inside and that's unfair to them. Thanks for your consideration in our unique home.*

Guest access
Driveway Parking, Wi-Fi, Amazon Fire TV (No Cable TV but we provide Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+), NVIDIA SHIELD gaming system, Outdoor Shower, Gas Grill, Outdoor Gas Fire Pit, Private Patio with dining table, Play Fort & Swings in the common space backyard, art shed for workspace or creating, Lifeguard Tower Treehouse, & Beach Cruisers (with a little advance notice).

Other things to note
We allow for early luggage drop-off if needed, but we need until 4 pm for cleaning. Please park on the left side of the driveway as we used the right side and don't pull inside the gate as this wakes us at night. Occasionally we might need full access to our driveway and in that case we'll ask that you take a street parking spot. If you're coming with an extra vehicle it can be parked directly in front of our house or down the street by the vacant lot but please don't park in front of neighbor's homes.

We're an active and fun family that enjoy biking, hiking, camping, and exploring the outdoors. We like building and creating. We've worked really hard creating our Lifeguard Tower Treehouse; a one-of-a-kind treehouse made from an authentic lifeguard tower pulled from the sands of Pismo Beach! We like meeting new people and catering to families as we have a 7 year old son ourselves. We welcome you stay, play, and experience the wide array of activities the Central Coast has to offer!

During your stay
We have a keyless entry and give you a door code* so you can check-in according to your own schedule. We usually wait to see our guests as we cross paths in case you want your privacy. We try to say "hello" if we hear you coming or going in the driveway. We're busy people too, so we might miss meeting you if you're just staying one night. On the weekends we're typically home working on some kind of project. We're easily reached by phone and we like to check in with guests via the Airbnb chat. But, please feel free to come knock on our door if you need anything at all! *UPON BOOKING YOUR INSTRUCTIONS AND CODE WILL BE SENT THROUGH THE AIRBNB CHAT*
