Diane's place was decorated very cute and had a very comfortable bed. We enjoyed the pool and the yard, however overall we did not have a very good time due to the heat. It was my fault for not checking this beforehand, but the unit did not have AC which we were unaware of and there were no fans in the unit. When we arrived the unit was 94 degrees and for the entire time we were there it did not drop below 85 degrees even with all the windows open. Diane sent back a response saying we may want to go buy some fans.. Due to the heat wave, all the stores were sold out of fans in the area so we had a hot couple of days there with no solutions offered. I don't think buying our own fans to use should be our responsibility, so definitely keep in mind the lack of AC if you're coming during the summer. A beautiful place, but didn't really get to enjoy as it was too hot. Additionally the wifi didn't work at all while we were there. Diane said she was sending someone to fix it, however it never got resolved and we were unable to use it.

The property is great - very relaxing and the pool was awesome as it was pretty warm when we visited. We also enjoyed walking around, visiting the chickens and checking out all the different plants and flowers. Unfortunately the place was not cleaned prior to our arrival. I let the host know and she said that it would be cleaned the next day and that we could find clean sheets and towels in the garage. This was obviously pretty disappointing and frustrating as the stay is not exactly cheap. All in all the good outweighed the bad and hopefully our experience was just a one time oversight.

It was the perfect getaway. The barn was beautifully remodeled, clean and included everything we needed including a beautiful pool and jacuzzi. We might even consider coming back next year!

Incredible property to stay if you're looking for a quiet getaway. Very private and quiet surroundings. Everything looks just like the pictures and it is just as comfortable as it looks. Also easy to drive to nearby restaurants and shops or grab an Uber or Lyft to get you places. The kitchen is a great addition to cook meals in and provides dishes to use. Overall a great place to stay that I would highly recommend!

Had a very pleasant stay at Diane’s. Overall, we had a wonderful weekend. Unit was clean and well-kept when we arrived, and we made sure to leave it spotless when we left. However, things quickly went downhill on the last day of our stay. Diane requested a $65 dollar pet fee. After this, I alerted our host that my animal was a medically-certified emotional support animal, and sent her a photo of my documentation. I politely informed her that most Airbnb’s don’t require a pet fee for such assistance dogs. I got no response from Diane and assumed she had familiarized herself with the official Airbnb policy, which states “hosts cannot charge extra fees to guests with an assistance animal." (https://www.airbnb.com/help/article/1869/what-is-an-assistance-animal) The next day I was shocked to receive a very strongly worded, extremely upsetting message from the host, where she waged personal attacks against me, even threatening to have me kicked off Airbnb. (Just to be clear, this is a pet-friendly house. She also was well aware I'd be bringing my dog in advance) But nonetheless, Diane was irate. She said to me, and I quote: “You should've found a motel 6 or something more your class. This is a private home with classy people and you obviously do not belong here” She went on to demand 65$ pet cleaning fee. I mentioned that I disagreed with the money request, but paid the fee anyway, because the host was acting irrationally and I didn’t care to escalate the situation. Then a few hours later, I got an email from Airbnb, saying they had determined Diane, the host, was totally in the wrong. The email went on to say that AirBnb would be refunding me the pet fee paid to Diane immediately. TO RECAP: Lovely weekend tainted by an extremely mean-spirited, classless and rude host. No one deserves to be spoken to the way Diane talked to me, especially unprovoked. Would recommend steering clear of her if possible.

Beautiful design and layout. Great location to unwind and bring your dogs. The trampoline was a fun bonus. Jacuzzi/Pool are perfect. The bed provides an excellent night of sleep. (Bring earplugs as their roosters and their neighbors' dogs holler a lot) There were issues with the wifi and it was never resolved. The dogs and us had a great time and got lost in the location that this issue didn't bother me as such. We got R & R.

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!
