The space
Greetings! We are Tim and Hayley Townley and we have lived on the Central Coast for 25+ years. We were so fortunate to find this wonderful property in the Edna Valley area, close to everything we love about the central coast: the wineries, the beaches and the small-town atmosphere. We are minutes away from 31 local Edna Valley, SLO, and Arroyo Grande wineries, just 25 miles to the Paso Robles wine region, and only 13 miles from Cal Poly when we need a quick visit with our Mustangs! You are >15 miles away from downtown SLO, Pismo Beach, village of Arroyo Grande and Avila Beach. We hope you will enjoy the beautiful star filled nights and quiet peaceful sunny days surrounded by oaks, wildlife, and rolling hills as much as we do! This private and quiet cottage enjoys wonderful views from every room!

There are three homes on the property, we live in a 1961 ranch house, there is a 1920's cabin and the Libretto Cottage is a 1941 former officer quarters from Camp SLO (moved here sometime in the 50's). All homes face different directions and are far apart, so it feels like you are the only one on the property!

Nearby venues include Holland Ranch, Tiber Canyon, Greengate Ranch & Vineyard, among others.
