Lovely little house, perfect for getting away and relaxing.
Beach Cottage walking distance to the downtown Village of Historic Arroyo Grande, CA. There are restaurants, shops, antiques, and the world famous Doc Bernstiens Ice Cream Lab!. The swinging bridge that spans the creek hosts live music during the Farmer's Market every Saturday from (phone number hidden)
A short drive in the beautiful Edna Valley takes you to many wonderful wineries famous for their Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays as well as old vine Zinfandel. Tasting rooms line Corbett Canyon Drive as well as Hwy 227 all the way to San Luis Obispo.
Another short drive down Grand Ave takes you to Pismo Beach. Here you can enjoy a walk on the Pier or have some clam chowder at the many famous restaurants in the area.
The house includes huge backyard with grapevines on the fence. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, large closet and a dresser. The 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed, twin bed, closet and night stand. There is a full kitchen, bath and spacious living room. Stack able washer and dryer saves you the trouble of a laundromat. Super fast WiFi allows for streaming movies and music or checking in at the office and getting some work done if needed. 42" flat screen tv with cable if, somehow, you run out of other things to do
A great place to get away and relax!
You will have access to the house and all that is within except for a cupboard that is locked where we keep personal items. The garage is not accessible to the guests.
Interaction with Guests
Rarely do we interact with our guests. Typically, when you're here at Carrie's Cottage, Gary and I are visiting another interesting place!
Quiet neighborhood with most neighbors keeping to themselves.
Most places can be accessed by walking or riding a bike.
Other Things to Note
It is a house in a neighborhood so normal neighborhood activites will be happening, such as lawn mowers etc . The house is near Highway 101. You can hear traffic driving by. It is not terribly loud and most people do not mind.
Please no smoking.
Place the towels and sheets on the laundry room floor (separated please) upon check-out.
Our host left instructions on where and how to get the key. We did not meet them but did not need to as everything we needed was provided. The place was clean and true to its description. Maybe not recommended for small children as it is on a busy street out front but very convenient to downtown restaurants , grocery shopping,the freeway,hiking and wine tasting.
A lovely house. A quick drive to Pismo beach and other amenities and shops and restaurants within walking distance. As others have mentioned it is near highway 101 so there is road noise from this so if you are sensitive to noise this may not be the best option. Fans provided to keep the house cool were useful, house is well equipped and was great to have use the washing machine half way through our rd trip. Thanks
Carries cottage could not be more perfect for my little family! We stayed for 4 days 3 nights. So nicely located close to klondikes pizza, trader joes, movie theater, & doc bernsteins ice cream! The moment we walked through the back gate I knew I would love it, the backyard was perfect for my toddler son to play in, it was shady & nice. The house definitely didn't disappoint very cute, clean, & quaint. There's a nice front porch swing that I used to rock my son to sleep. Gary & Carrie were amazing & sweet to deal with. This will definitely be a place my family stays again!!!
Carrie's cottage is a place full of character. You can see that Gary and Carrie take a good care of their house.
We loved the proximity of the house to various shopping centers and it's a short drive distance to the beach.
Beds were very comfortable and kitchen was fully eclipsed. We have really enjoyed our stay.
What a darling cottage like home! It has a great comfortable feel and it was clean and roomy. You feel incredibly safe with the Police station down one block. They have a great patio area in the back if you enjoy eating outside. This was our first experience using Airbnb and I have been telling all my friends how great it is!
Vielen Dank, dass wir Eure Gäste sein durften. Wir haben die Zeit in Carrie's Cottage genossen. Das Haus liegt in der Nähe des Highway 1. Im 2. Schlafzimmer hört man den Lärm der Straße. Leider konnte man den Hinterhof nicht optimal nutzen, weil es nur 2 Stühle gab und auch kein Tisch. Ein Hinweis für Familien mit kleinen Kindern: Der Garten war durch Hundekot beschmutzt.
