Vintage Schoolhouse Estate

House - Entire home/apt · Grant Avenue, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420, United States

The Space

This beautiful Estate is located on the border of Nipomo, and Arroyo Grande, California. Central Coast, the best place to be! In the country, but a short 8 minute drive to the beach . 2 1/2 acres of english gardens, gazebo's, pool, jaquzzi, and an incredible home to top it off.We get the best weather ever, a micro climate, because we are below the Mesa, and do not get the fog. We are in- land enough from the beaches, so we do not get Gloom of fog, and the drive is short and sweet, if we do want to get to the Ocean.. The Schoolhouse was built in 1891, and later restored and converted into a family home. The house has 4 bedrooms, a family room for entertainment, a formal living room, with a baby grand piano, and a formal dining room, with a gorgeous Farm Table, that seats 10. There is a ton of light in the kitchen, with an entire wall of windows looking out to the pool and yard. There is an Island, with bench seats in the kitchen, too.The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances, a dishwasher,microwave, and a comfortable couch, to sit in.
The house is very lived in, love has defiantly dwelled here. Our family of 6 and dogs and cats , My husband and I moved here from Manhattan Bch in 2000, and raised our four children here. We have had goats, chickens, snakes, dogs, puppys cats, birds, & have made tremendous memories here. There is detail, and character in every inch of the house and grounds. There is a laundry room, a separate art barn, and a separate Yoga Studio. Three car garage, and guest house, which is rented out (email hidden)ere are 3 queen beds and CAL King. There is a queen sofa sleeper in the formal living room. So technically, 12 people can sleep here, if the beds are being shared. There is so much space in this house, there are 7 couches to choose from to kick back and read a book! One of pour favorite thing to do!

  • Wow, what a relaxing week we just spent at Diane and Mike's secluded apartment with private pool and hot tub in the country, but close to logs of different beaches. We were vacationing as a small family of four, with two younger kids. The pool was a huge hit with the kids. I loved the peacefulness of the countryside. When it was cloudy at the beach, it was usually sunny at the property.
    Diane and Mike were such wonderful hosts too. They were ok with another small family visiting us from LA and sharing the pool. They also let us wash our clothes in their washer and dryer. In general, they were super attentive and accommodating to all our needs. Their three fantastic dogs were a huge hit with the kids too!

    Thanks Mike and Diane for the memories! We will be back!

  • I absolutely loved our short stay at Diane's beautiful private barn. It is so very peaceful there and her garden and yard is beyond words. So wonderful. I loved being away from the hustle and bustle of the nearby resorts. It was exactly what we needed. And we loved her dogs. Made us wish we would have brought ours. Thank you Diane for being such a wonderful hostess. We'd love to come back and stay even longer.

  • The barn, and the grounds around it, are beautiful-perfect for a quiet getaway. It's also in a lovely peaceful part of the countryside, and Diane's activity log and its suggestions for hikes and restaurants was very useful for making the most of the area. Potential guests should note the WiFi signal is weak in the living area, the washer/dryer is in the main family house and only available by request and that there's an additional cleaning fee. Those staying on Monday evening/Tuesday morning should also be aware that yoga classes take place on the floor below the barn. It didn't bother us, but it does involve music and so might disturb light sleepers looking for a lie-in. Loved our welcome nibbles from Diane, and the congratulatory dessert waiting for us when we came home from dinner after she found out we were on our honeymoon.

  • Our stay at the private barn in Arroyo Grande was absolutely awesome! The one bedroom rental was as nice, if not nicer, than what the images online portrayed and it was comfortable and private. The property that it is located on is very peaceful, quiet, well taken care of and uniquely beautiful.

    Diane was an awesome host who was a very attentive and welcoming.

    We will definitely be back if ever in the area again!

  • My friends and I stayed at Diane's place for the weekend and had an amazing time. The place was clean and cozy. Close to the beach and other attractions. Although we didn't get to meet Diane, we were able to communicate easily throughout the stay. Diane also left us some delicious cookies and a wine bottle. Would recommend this for a small group.

  • My husband, dog, and I had a wonderful experience at the Puhek home. Their remodeled barn was homey and spacious will all the amenities you need. We loved that our dog could romp around with her other 3 dogs on their property. Despite the rain, we had a great time exploring the surrounding cities and appreciated the recommendations Diane made in her activities guide. =) Thanks for a relaxing weekend!

  • Diane was very easy and pleasant to communicate with. She even stopped by to introduce herself and to see if needed anything. Diane left us some home baked treats and a bottle of wine, which was very sweet. The Beach Bungalow is decorated with a cozy Shabby Chic flair. It fit our family of four very comfortably. We enjoyed the sunny backyard in the afternoon reading in the lounge chairs. The location of the house is wonderful for strolling into the cute downtown, over a hanging bridge. There is a great meat store with the famous tri tip sandwiches, as well as wine tasting places and nice restaurants. We also enjoyed a morning at Avila Beach. Overall a great weekend getaway!

    Yelena and her family were very friendly and kind. I met Yelena, and her adorable baby one morning.They were neat and communicative & I would gladly host them again! Thanks Yelena for your open communication, so I could fix that leak! I appreciate your helpfulness!! Diane

  • My boyfriend and I just spent a lovely weekend at Diane and Mikes' home. I can't say enough nice things. While we were out and about for most of the time, the time that we DID spend at their beautiful barn was definitely memorable. The home was extremely clean and had about everything you could ask for. When we had trouble with the DVD player, Mike immediately came over and assisted us. They allowed us access to all of their amenities - the pool, hot tub, etc.

    I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to truly get away for the weekend. It is quiet and quaint - perfect for a romantic weekend.

    Thank you again!

    It was a pleasure to host guests like Katie & her boyfriend. They were friendly & excited to be here. I found them both extremely kind & happy about every little thing. They were listening to music, candles going & food cooking in the unit when they invited us in to greet us. I find so much pleasure in seeing people enjoying the unit like that! Thanks Katie for your sweet personality you showered all over the property……you & your boyfriend were awesome guests! You are welcome back anytime:)

  • We had an amazing long weekend in the beach bungalow! The house is super cute and has everything you would need. It's centrally located for all of the central coast exploring you might want to do. Diane was a superb host - all the way down to some delish homemade cookies!

  • A delightful 1 br apartment on an even more delightful piece of property. We only had a short stay, but thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house is in the middle of an expanse of farmland and is a great place for a quiet getaway.

    The hosts were also quite accommodating and responsive to our needs. Definitely a place we'd love to return to!

    It was great to meet you & your wife. I was so sorry I didn't get the message in time to refer some fabulous restaurants in SLO to eat at. I am so glad you were able to get out and enjoy some of the amazing sights here on the Central Coast. The sweet energy you & your wife brought to our space was much appreciated. We are blessed & thankful for renters like you! Take good care,
    Diane & Mike

About
Hello, My husband and I have been married for twenty four years and have been blessed with four amazing children. We originally are from Manhattan Bch CA. We wanted to give our children more space to run as they grew up, so we bought a Vintage School house built in 1891. We live here in the Schoolhouse on 2 1/2 acres, and have recently added a guest home, in the shape of a Barn. This is what we have to offer you. We are in a quiet spot in the country of AG. Pismo, Shell, and Avila Bch are a short 8-10 min drive. San Luis Obispo is a short 15 minute drive. Come relax in our pool, jaquzzi, ride the bikes and enjoy the wine tasting of the Central Coast. I offer a private Yoga class in my own studio on the property, I am a certified YOga Instructor. We have three very friendly dogs that are quiet, and loving. We love to travel ourselves, and you will get to see the many pictires of our adventures around the world as you stay in our Barn. We love to read, the movies, and to cook. Make your stay into a true B & B and request Dianes delicious healthy cooking, from Farm Fresh vegies and local fish, meat, cheese, and baked goods. Our LIfe Motto is Live and Love Life to the fullest , share your home, your blessings and laugh a lot. Family, God, and Gratitude make up our family motto. Hope to see you soon!
