Trish's studio was fantastic. She wasn't at home so she gave very thorough explanation of how to get to and into the place. The location is great...easy off the freeway, but when you get there you feel like a million miles away amongst the garden and the farm animals. There is a shopping center less than 2miles so easy to pickup other things. We were welcomed by goodies in the fridge and all the little extras we could possibly need, including beach towels, and chairs. As airbnb hosts ourselves, we were impressed and may steal some of Trish's ideas :) This is a perfect place to spend a getaway weekend or if you're really lucky, even longer break on the central coast.
Trish gave great instructions for easily finding the apartment at night and getting into the unit. The studio was very spacious and pleasant. The bathroom was well stocked. The internet speed was slow(less than 1Mbps at night) but the ATT signal was excellent so we ended up using that instead.
We had a wonderful stay. Trish was super accommodating and the place was lovely. Thanks!!
This spacious studio is very well-furnished to be a complete apartment, in a lovely peaceful setting. Just as described in the listing, the studio is surrounded by beautiful trees, flowers and an impressive organic garden, and on a quiet road that nonetheless provides convenient access to local sights. This is a very tranquil retreat, and the apartment is thoughtfully furnished with games, books and local magazines so that you could happily enjoy many hours on the sunporch taking in the very fresh country air. Trish and Terry are responsive yet sensitive to providing their guests privacy. A lovely stay.
Terry and Trish are great! The studio is immaculate and quite comfortable. Centrally located and very easy to find off the highway.
The quiet garden studio was the best possible way we could have spent Valentine's Day. Trish and Terry were extremely thoughtful and respectful hosts. Trish was even willing to put out a bottle of wine and flowers for my girlfriend!
We had everything we needed and the place was clean and well put together. The property is beautiful and close to the beach, wineries, and San Louis Obispo. If I'm ever staying in the area again, it would be a pleasure to stay here a second time!
We are a family of four, with both of our children off to college. We have chickens and 2 cats, enjoy gardening, hiking, movies, reading, and the beach. I love to play tennis and my husband loves to surf.
I teach middle school Physical Education, and Terry is general contractor.
My home is my favorite place in all the world, and I love sharing it with family, old friends, and new airbnb friends!
