About this listing
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 (website hidden) DVD and cable, internet available.
The bedroom has a queen 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.

I can not say enough good things about our stay in this amazing vacation home. My husband and son stayed here for 2 nights. It was very comfortable and felt like you were out in the country but we were minutes from the beach and hiking. The property is beautiful. In addition to a beautiful centrally located place to stay the hosts are very accommodating and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely be back!
The Puhek's Private Barn was perfect for our stay! My 2 boys had a great time in the pool, while my wife and I relaxed.
Mike greeted us upon arrival and offered to be of any help during our stay. He even offered to lend us his SUP board!
We had such a relaxing time. Diane was a great host and the apartment is a perfect getaway for a couple. When it was too windy & chilly on the beach one day, we decided to pack up and just come home and lounge by the pool and it was perfect. The bed was super comfortable, as was the living room, and kitchen had everything to allow us to make breakfasts at home, and come home for some wine, cheese and jacuzzi at night. We would absolutely stay here again!
We are absolutely stunned by this amazing residence. We have never stayed at a nicer place than this. It had everything we could possibly need, and their dogs are sooooo cute! We had our wedding up the road from the house and we spent our first night here as a married couple. We are so grateful for Diane and Mike for being the best hosts ever. We thank you both so much.
Diane was so welcoming when we arrived. She had baked fresh bread and stopped in to check on us. She also invited me to a makeup and jewelry show she was hosting in her home. She was very responsive when i had questions and made us feel very welcome. The listing was very accurate after staying in the barn. Very clean and beautifully decorated. The grounds were also beautiful with all the flowers, pool, and overall charm. It was also nice and quiet, which we were looking for. We would definitely stay again next time we head to the central coast.
I honestly can't say enough about how wonderful not only their property is, but Diane, Mike and their entire family too! They were SO incredibly welcoming--not to mention Diane's amazing baked treats!--and they made us feel like a part of their family from the get-go. The property itself exceeded all of our expectations! Not only a picture-perfect pool and landscape and home itself, but the barn was light years better than my entire apartment! Couldn't have asked for a better weekend :) THANK YOU and we look forward to coming back soon!
We were greeted into Diane's beautiful barn with a plate full of cookies. We immediately felt at home and relaxed. We liked the place so much, we barely left during our short weekend trip and opted for pizza delivery instead of dinner in SLO. I can't wait to return during the summer months to take advantage of the beautiful pool!

About the Host, Diane
Hello, My husband and I have been married for twenty four 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, ride the bikes and enjoy the wine tasting of the Central Coast. I offer a private Yoga class in my own studio on the property, I am a certified YOga Instructor.
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.
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!
