About this listing
A lovely, relaxing, quiet environment surrounded by beautiful landscaping, a large seasonal garden and relaxing patio. Puffin and Tanta, my miniature goats will make you laugh with their playful antics.
Welcome to The Victorian where you experience peacefulness and tranquility while reconnecting to both the now and the past. The Victorian rests upon two lovingly sculptured acres edged with fruit trees, a vegetable garden (seasonal) and a majestic oak tree. The Victorian is perfectly situated near the beaches and wineries of the Central Coast and the historic Village of Arroyo Grande. Play bocce ball on the broad expanse of the lush lawn or nap in the hammock on the patio. In the evenings relax under a starry sky while basking in the warmth of the natural gas fire pit. Special features of The Victorian include 12 foot ceilings with crown molding throughout, a luxurious bathtub in the master bedroom and imported white Italian Carara marble counter tops in the kitchen. The dining room is graced by an antique rectory table. Reconnect to nature by feeding the miniature goats and harvesting herbs and vegetables from the garden (seasonal). The house has a full bath with custom tiled shower. The master bedroom has a soaking bathtub and a beautiful four legged pedestal sink. Enjoy the game table where you can play chess and checkers.
My wonderful caretaker lives in a charming cottage about 75 feet behind The Victorian. She has a pet-sitting business and is often not there. The cottage is far enough away and separated by the large patio and mature landscaping so that it does intrude upon the privacy of The Victorian.
The house is finely appointed and is not a "party" house. It is more suited to adults, couples or two couples.
Other amenities include two spa robes, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, conditioner and an iron and ironing board.
Potential guests must have a completely filled out profile with photo and online and offline verifications as recommended by Airbnb.
Entire house, patio with hammock and table/chairs, natural gas fire pit, large manicured lawn.
Interaction with Guests
I meet my guests at check-in and I usually come onto the property to feed the goats and water the garden.
Peaceful, quiet, rural setting a few miles from Pismo Beach and Shell Beach. San Luis Obispo is about 15 miles north. The Village of Arroyo Grande is a 15 minute walk or only a few minutes by car. There are many local wineries nearby the property. Paso Robles, which is a 45 minute drive, has many wineries.
A car is necessary.
I am looking for people who will treat my beautiful home with respect. Please, no red wine or smoking anywhere on the property. The kitchen has white Italian marble counter tops which you will need to be very careful about not etching or staining with acidic products (lemons for example), oils, etc. It is not like granite which you can do anything to and it doesn't show! I also do not allow pets.
Living room with comfortable couch and chaise, rocking chair and overstuffed comfy chair.
