Our property is one acre, with chickens, 2 cats and gardens. It is a very peaceful environment, and guests are invited to stroll the property, swing on the tree swing, feed the chickens, and pick fruits and vegetables that may be ready to harvest. Bicycles and boogie boards available upon request for extra fun.

The area is very quiet; we are only 1 1/2 miles from a CVS, and only 3 miles from a Trader Joe's, but in a rural part of the county. Apartment is part of our property, about 40 yards from the house, and at the bottom of the driveway, so guests do not even drive by the main house as they come and go.

Arroyo Grande is a town of 16,000, with an historic downtown that's called "The Village". Nearby towns are Pismo Beach for surfing, boogie boarding, or beach combing, as well as outlet malls for shopping. San Luis Obispo, 15 minutes to the north, has a wonderful downtown with excellent restaurants and shops. It is also the home to Cal Poly State University. The area is also well known for its many wineries.

A small dog would be okay if it was exceptionally well trained, and with an additional $15.00 per night.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We loved staying with Trish, her place is great. She is awesome herself. Our only wish is that we could have stay much longer! But we will definitely come again! For years we have come to Pismo for a family reunion and have stayed in your typical hotel setting. This is SOOOOO much better. It is like being home! Trish and family have provided all of the lovely personal touches that a hotel doesn't offer. Very convenient and centrally located. to everything. 2 thumbs up!

  • Wonderful little studio in a quiet spot.

  • This space is great. Very private. Has everything you need to make life on the road enjoyable….comfy bed, kitchen, nice bathroom, wi-fi. There is a nice deck out front too. Trish was a great hostess. Available and accessible as needed. We had time for a nice chat over coffee.
    There is a little deck out front to lounge. If you like you can visit the chickens and have the cats come say hi. If you don't want to you won't even know they are there.
    While it feels out in the country it is just a five minute drive, if that, to stores and movie theatre and under 10 min to the ocean! Easy 15 minutes to San Luis Obispo downtown.
    A great spot, highly recommended.

  • I needed a place to stop over on my drive from Berkeley to LA, so i took 101 and stopped here at Trish' place. It was perfect for this- not at all far from the freeway, but felt like being out in the country. The room had everything I needed and Trish is very nice and a great host.

  • Great little spot to stay if you want something close to Pismo Beach! Came here for a quick evening following a long 3.5 hour drive and it was amazingly comfortable for what we needed.

    Clean, spacious studio with nice little creature comfort touches: quirky bookcase and DVD collection, a full kitchen set up, complimentary healthy snacks, and toiletries.

    They even have a binder set out with clippings of dining referrals and fully written spec sheets on house rules and activity suggestions!

    We "Checked in" without meeting Trish and her husband, but we caught up with them in the morning while we were leaving. Had a great conversation - very nice and super courteous. Overall a great no hassle experience, would definitely come back.

  • We had an unusually nice stay in Arroyo Grande. Trish and Terry are wonderful people and excellent hosts. You really feel that they are not only letting an appartment (a very nice one!) but are truly interested in their guests. We were travelling with our little baby girl (12 months) which was just perfect for this place. There are chicken and cats and a swing in a tree, and Trish is extremely fond of children. They even invited us over for dinner and she kept our little one occupied all the evening in a very lovable way. This enabled us to have a great conversation with Terry who is a very charming and interesting person as well. He recommended a great surfing spot to us and has a lot of interesting stories to tell. We really hope to meet this family again and highly recommend a stay at their place to anyone!

  • The studio was absolutely lovely. It's very spacious and has a lovely outside seating area. It's equipped with everything you need and very clean.
    Trish even prepared muffins, fresh fruits and yogurts for breakfast and there was tea and coffee too.
    We will definitely be back!

  • We stayed for 2 weeks and had such an enjoyable and relaxing time at the garden studio. The cosy, very convenient and well equipped studio was perfect for the three of us (2 adults and a baby).
    Most of all we are so thankful for the incredible hospitality of the hosts Trish and Terry. They were so attentive to all our (potential) needs and treated our baby as it was their own. We felt like part of the family.
