Unfortunately I'm not able to give Diana a very positive review because we were double booked by her, and then never heard from her again until the Airbnb Resolution Center became involved. We did eventually receive a full refund and an apology, via an Airbnb caseworker from Diana, so we are very grateful for that.
My kids and I arrived at her lovely cottage at 8:30pm, after having been driving all day, to find another family staying there for the week. I attempted to reach Diana in every way but never received a response or return phone call/text/email/msg that night or ever. I spent the next hour browsing, calling, and driving around to find any hotel room within a 30 mile range, but there was nothing available anywhere. Thank goodness for the kindness of a hotel employee at the Best Western Pismo Beach who made multiple calls and found a cancellation of a room for my kids and me at 10:30 that night.
I do believe the double booking was more than likely an innocent mistake on Diana's part. Not having anywhere to sleep at 10 o'clock at night for my kids and I was very stressful, but I was much more surprised and dissapointed at her lack of communication. That behavior I don't understand and I feel pretty badly about. I hope this was a one off for her.
Diana's home is a wonderful gift to travelers [ in our case weary ones] and epitomises why we chose to use airbnb over hotels. The decor is beautiful and soothing. When sitting in the lounge all you hear is the sound of water from the water features and birds outside. The street is quiet with the ocean at the end of it. There was a feeling of stillness and serenity and the bed was cosy and comfortable. The bathroom was delightful and functional.
Our only regret was that we spent more time on the road driving than we planned to so did not get to fully enjoy all Diana's space had to offer [ such as the spa in the back yard, fire or a soak in the bath] We hope that if we are fortunate enough to travel this way again that we could book for 2-3 days at least to really immerse ourselves in the area and this lovely home

Diana's home is lovely and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Not perfectly clean, it still suited us well enough and we slept wonderfully! The location is ideal and just fabulous for a stop-over down highway 1! I think a little more feminine in nature, this posting is perfect for a girls weekend or relaxing getaway!

We had a wonderful stay at Diana's Laughing Buddha beach cabin. After a long drive, we dropped our bags at the house and headed to the beach at sunset (only a half block away); then we walked to a nearby brewhouse for an excellent dinner. A few more steps to a local wine shop, then an enjoyable stroll back to the house for a relaxing night. We slept GREAT. Diana greeted us the next morning with warm hugs and a very enjoyable conversation about the area. (We hope to move to the central coast later this year.) Highly recommended -- especially if you are looking for a laid-back, cozy, peaceful place to recharge.
Although we didn't get to meet Diana, her home was more beautiful, welcoming and homely than we could have imagined! An absolutely beautiful spot at Shell beach! Everything about it was just our style. It was clean and tidy! We definitely recommend this place and wish we could have stayed longer!
Thank you Diana. (We hope you enjoy our little shampoo and conditioner present!)

About the Host, Diana
I am a world traveler counseling astrologer and Thai and Esalen MassageTherapist.
Mom of two grown daughters and now a grand daughter!
I am friendly warm and knowledgeable about the area. I have been here on the beach since 1985. I have to pinch myself I live here San Luis Obispo the happiest place in the USA according to Oprah is 10 miles away ! . Stunning uncrowded beaches . Hiking most amazing!! Wine tasting everywhere .Sea life in the back yard Great arts and music near by and the famous SLO farmers market on Thursday.. I love to share our area with guests and have been doing so for 12 years as a vacation rental hostess and private guest retreat for small groups who are respectful to all the lovely neighbors who live here full time.
I am open minded to all genders . Love dogs,which we accept as long as their well behaved quite and I get to pet them! The house is a haven and sanctuary of peace and tranquility and great for a romantic get away, and I m looking to book guests who are looking for a quite peaceful abode by the .The home is not conducive to parties of any type as the neighbors are sensitive to noise. I respect your privacy and lead a busy life so you will have plenty of privacy Most of my guests have remained my friends .
Cheers and thank you !
