The Space

This special Mayan home was designed by the flamboyant, Robert Stacy-Judd, who created sensational architecture in the 1920's and 30's. He led an expedition into the Yucatan at the time Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic; both opened new worlds. My home is featured in many books and I hope you will be fascinated with it as well. It is located on a corner lot, directly across from a lagoon, where you can go and be entertained while you feed the ducks and geese. I truly work hard at making your stay and room comfortable and clean by paying attention to special details for you. Nearly everything in my home has been obtained from many different places and refurbished to extend and give them a second life, as well as save on world waste.

The first bedroom is attached but separate from the Main House. It is a BUTTERFLY design room. It has a king flotation canopy bed with ceiling mirrors. I also have an extra single mattress in the closet for a toddler or young child. There is a wicker furniture sitting area with Tiffany designed lamps, a 47 inch LCD TV with DirecTV. You also have wifi access. There is an electric small fireplace that can add heat to the room if needed. A seperate kitchen, which is decorated in happy bright colors, has an apartment size stove/oven, a sink, refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven and coffee pot. The kitchen is supplied with all that you would need. Oopsy....If by chance I forgot to put something there, please let me know and I will be happy to try and get it for you. You have access to your own tub/shower. This unit has a front separate entrance off of Pier Ave and on premise parking in the driveway.

The second room that is available is a bit more I like to say since it is decorated in a JUNGLE style. Realistic elephant and giraffe paintings are professionally done on 2 different walls. This room has a king bed and a single roll out love seat. Wifi is also available. You are welcome to use the common area back porch which has a propane built in BBQ, a gas stove top, a mini sink and a full refrigerator. You have your own tub/shower bathroom. Decorated with loud colors. The toilet has a bidet seat with remote controls. This room is accessed through the Main House stained glass door. FREE parking is off the streets on Pier Ave or Norswing Ave.

Your third option is a "2006" TASTEFULLY decorated RV trailer. It has a couch and dinette slide out, giving you more room to roam. You have a seperate bedroom with a double bed and an RV size tub shower. You have a full kitchen with all kitchen accessories. So if you want to cook or bake, you have all the necessary amenities at hand. And if you prefer to grill, you are welcome to use the common area porch with the BBQ. You have your own seperate gate entrance and private small yard which allows you to bring your animals to stay in your yard area. Street parking closest to the entrance would be off of Norswing. The RV sits on the back side of my Mayan Home. Feels like you are camping in luxury!

Send me a message for availability since I do advertise on another web page. And if you have a preference please specify Butterfly, Jungle, Artistic or RV.

Coming soon is a 15' diameter excited!!

My 1929 Mayan home is a few blocks away from one of the only two beach entrance's. The only beach in California that you are allowed to drive your car onto. It is relaxing in the evening, as well as romantic to light a bon fire and sit back and listen to the spectacular ocean waves. You may request to use the entrance pass, as well as a few comfy papasian chairs that you can take down to the beach with you. I suggest that you use the pass since this will save you about 6 dollars each day you enter the beach.

The home is also located very close to the Oceano Dunes and just a few miles from the Pismo Pier area. Down the street you can rent ATV's or a Hummer ride and leave the driving to them. Across the street is a local public bus stop for area transportation. Just a short walk from my home is the Rock n Roll Diner, which allows you to dine in a train car. There is also Beach Burger and Old Juan's Cantina, which has a reasonable champagne brunch.

Points of interest: Oceano Beach, Grover Beach, Pismo Beach, Shell Beach, Avila Beach....and ummm the NUDE well as being centrally located between San Francisco and Los Angeles. There also is the famous Hearst Castle, San Luis Obispo (aka the happiest place in America), SL Port Harbor, The Arroya Grande Village, Lopez Lake, wonderful wineries, farmers markets, The Oceano Melodrama, horseback riding, wind surfing, skydiving, surfing, kayaking, biking, hiking...not to mention TONS OF BEAUTY. Visit The Five Cities and be amazed. You can have the nightlife or choose a total solitude retreat and just chill. I am very happy to help out with any information or plans to where you may want to go.

I will end with a thank you...I THANK YOU for taking the time to read about my Historic Mayan Home and I THANK YOU for considering me to be your host.
An interesting aspect of the Mayan language and the way to say "Thank you" literally means "God Pays"

ENJOY wherever your travel and stays may take you!!!

Guest Access

Mi Casa Es Su Casa.....I like my guests to feel welcome and a part of it so they have access to it as if it was their own. I will say though that I am a stickler on leaving things exactly the way it was and leaving it cleaned for the next guest to use. As well as since we are on sand wiping things up right away is very important because of the sugar ants....If anything is missing or broken I appreciate being informed.

Interaction with Guests

I try and let my guests have their privacy, its their time, its their vacation, its their home here. I am respectful and ask for the same. I am also always willing to engage as much as they would like. I have had all different kinds of guest. Those that are quiet and like alone time and those that I have enjoyed a cup of java or tea with. That's the beauty of hosting, diversification and I LOVE it!!

The Neighborhood

OCEAN OCEAN very close. Either walk a few blocks or take your car and park for free. So nice to watch the mesmerizing waves and the sunsets. Less people during the week and during the off season. But the nice plus is its always beautiful!! I never take it for granted even though I see it almost every day.

Getting around

Public Transportation right across the way.

Other Things to Note

There is a Mexican Restaurant, Burger Hut, and a variety food Rock n Roll Diner all close by and within walking distance.

  • We enjoyed our stay in the Butterfly Room. It was clean and comfortable and quiet . Anna was very pleasant and stayed in touch via text during our stay. The kitchen was well stocked with kitchen equipment but no food stuffs, so be sure to bring your own. We would definitely return again.

  • We were in town for a wedding and only stayed in the Mayan house for one night. Basically, it was a bed for the night. So our experience in the place is a bit limited. For our need however, it was perfect. The room/bed were comfortable, clean, and quiet.

    Anna (host) was very responsive, informative, and polite. We had no problems booking the room, checking in and out, etc. I would recommend this room to any travelers needing a soft place to land for the night.

  • Our beach weekend at Anna's home was wonderful. We stayed in the Butterfly room, which was great with its own private bath and kitchen. Anna was a wonderful host - she had everything prepared in the room that we need and was available by text any time we needed her. The house is just a 30 second drive from the beach in a very quiet area. We will definitely stay again on our next visit to the Oceano/Pismo Beach area! Thank you Anna!!

  • We have been to Wonderland and its Anna and not Alice who lives there! Seriously, Anna's place is a dream of creative, inventive, wonderfulness and comfortable too! She has thought of everything to make her guests feel right at home. All the amenities are there from a bidet to a pool table and home made goodies at tea time, just in time for our check in! It was a unique place and an experience to match. We both enormously enjoyed our time in this wonderful historical landmark and the area as well.

  • Nous avons êtes très bien reçus chez Anna qui nous a accueillis dans sa maison vraiment originale. Toutes les commodités sont à proximité et l'océan est à deux pas !

  • Just what we needed for a quick overnight stay. Location is nice - a short walk to the beach, and a nice wooded Lagoon trail right across the street. The room was quiet and comfortable. The house has a lot of character and an interesting history. Anna is a great hostess - we felt quite at ease.

    April 2014
  • Anna is awesome! The room was great and if I needed anything Anna got it for me. Def coming back!

    April 2014
  • Anna was a wonderful host and provided a lovely place to stay. All was as advertised. What more to say?

I was born in 1963 and come from a large family. My greatest gifts and accomplishments are my 3 grown children and my 2 grandchildren, who are adorable inside and out, but what grandparent thinks not the same. I love art and unique, different items. I really like to refurbish and reuse, finding treasures which most of my home has been decorated by. I believe in my duty of recycling and composting and that brings me to my love of gardening. I am very eco friendly and dislike waste. I find all kinds of people interesting and like to learn about the area that they are from. My passion is for the love of travel, and that is where I find so much fulfillment. I have always enjoyed cooking and like to taste different foods, but I truly prefer the organic vegetarian lifestyle. I have owned 2 different restaurants and for over 5 years have had a small retail Hemp store here in Pismo Beach. In my free time I put together vacation packages. Most importantly I believe in God and believe in sweet love. I find the ocean here mesmerizing and therapeutic. I enjoy good laughter and sometimes tend to be silly. I like to live in peace and try to live a simple life which is hard to accomplish at times. I have placed my home to rent on airbnb, mainly to share it with you and secondly to help with the much needed upkeep of this historic Mayan home. I'll end my description with this: If we could all forgive I believe all the hate in the world would be gone.
