About this listing

The Barn is a one bedroom apartment. It sits atop a Studio apartment ( Petite Barn) our other listing... ... in the country on our 2 1/2 acre parcel. Very bright & light. Roosters & chicken in yard, dirt road & spotty wifi, true" country" .
I ask that only children who are over 10, and 100% swim safe come. This is a quiet environment... to be kept quiet for reading, napping, yoga, resting, retreating. We are yogis, surfers, readers, gardeners, and appreciate a quiet calm surrounding:)

The Space

This is a guest house on a 2 1/2 acre parcel in the country. WE are an 8 minute drive to Pismo, Shell, And Avila Beach, CA. A twenty minute drive to San Luis Obispo. The beautiful Avila Barn is a highlight to see and purchase baked goods, and fresh produce.
This is an upper level one bedroom, very private. Use of the pool, and jaquzzi, bikes, surfboards and Yoga classes.
There are not many reviews yet, because it is NEW, just built in winter of 2012. All new appliances, and beautiful new linens and furniture. TV DVD and cable, internet available.
The bedroom has a king bed, and the living room has a queen sofa sleeper. A private deck to over look pool.
The neighborhood is quiet, on a dirt road, and just minutes from the historical Arroyo Grande, where you can find a grocery store, movies, Trader Joes, antique shops, restaurants.

Public Transit is the train which can be found just down in Grover Bch. Approx a ten minute drive.The San Luis Obispo Airport is just 20 minutes north of us.There are rental car companies, public transit such as "dial a ride" cabs, and the public bus as well.

We are unique, because we have a historical monument on the property. We live in an old schoolhouse built in 1891. This shares the 2 1/2 acre parcel with the guest house. Very quiet set in the country, although we are minutes from surf, paddle boarding, wineries, shopping, restaurants

We offer private Yoga Instruction, if you wish, I am a Yoga Works Certified teacher and have a private studio on the property. We love to share our mountain bikes for touring around the neighborhood, or for Mountain biking in the local trails around Avila, Pismo, or san Luis.
There are dozens of fabulous hikes in our area. Great for all ages, and levels.
I would be more than happy to cook for you as you are here. I cook with all organic vegies from a local farm in AG, fresh fishes, hormone free meats, and I LOVE to bake!! This is just an added request on your part...you can even choose your menu.

This is a private area, gorgeous for relaxing by the pool and reading a good book.
The wineries are as close as 2 miles away, and all around the area, Santa Ynez, Paso Robles, as well.
There is a water slides park up in Paso as well.
Our home has been featured in Central Coast magazine, as well as A full featured movie back in 2012.
This was in fact a running school with several children from the area, and closed back in 1935.
We have a fuji apple orchard, with 100 trees, several plum trees, orange trees, cherry trees, tomato plants and more.
If you are interested, please e mail or call me, I am happy to send more photos. I was un able to up load any more photos to the sight.......
Hope to meet you soon, and to share our lovely space with you.

Arroyo Grande, California, United States · Member since March 2013

Hello, My husband and I have been married for twenty six years and have been blessed with four amazing children. We originally are from Manhattan Bch CA. We wanted to give our children more space to run as they grew up, so we bought a Vintage School house built in 1891. We live here in the Schoolhouse on 2 1/2 acres, and have recently added a guest home, in the shape of a Barn. This is what we have to offer you. We are in a quiet spot in the country of AG. Pismo, Shell, and Avila Bch are a short 8-10 min drive. San Luis Obispo is a short 15 minute drive. Come relax in our pool, jaquzzi, and enjoy the wine tasting of the Central Coast. If de meal, just give me 24 hours notice, d if I am able, I will cook for you. e proper time allotment & if I'm able. I can teach a private meditation or yoga class as well, with the proper notice. I ask $25./ per meal for dinners $15./ for breakfast & lunch. I ask $45. for an hour yoga class....
We have three very friendly dogs that are quiet, and loving. We love to travel ourselves, and you will get to see the many pictires of our adventures around the world as you stay in our Barn. We love to read, the movies, and to cook. Make your stay into a true B & B and request Dianes delicious healthy cooking, from Farm Fresh vegies and local fish, meat, cheese, and baked goods. Because we have a pool on the property, it is imperative that parents only book with seasoned swimmers. We allow age 10 and up. Our family home is on the property, so this is a huge liability & a strict policy we enforce. Thank you kindly, & we love kids, although need to enforce this rule to ensure safety.
Our LIfe Motto is Live and Love Life to the fullest , share your home, your blessings and laugh a lot. Family, God, and Gratitude make up our family motto.
Hope to see you soon!
