If you are looking for quiet beautiful sunsets on a private setting, yet still being close to the bustle of the beach, this is it! Our spot creates relaxed romance from dawn to dusk where entertaining is easy, comfort reigns supreme and natural beauty is the essence of style. Our location in Arroyo Grande puts you within 2 minutes of the Cypress Ridge Golf Course, 5 minutes to wineries and the historic Village of Arroyo Grande, and 7-10 minutes to Pismo and Avila Beaches. The Central Coast rivals the Napa Valley featuring more than 200 wineries and vineyards in the region. On almost any given weekend one can find activities such as wine tastings and festivals, biking events, and faires of all types.

This property is ideal for small family reunions, receptions, get-togethers, corporate executive retreats, and for those wine enthusiasts interested in sharing the cost of a beautiful home and property by bringing a group of 4-5 couples, several families or a group of friends.

We are a working boutique farm with an organic garden, a small pond, a flock of chickens known as 'The Zen Hen Hut' birds, two bunnies, miniature horse, four ducks, and a sweet goat.

The Master Suite features a Balinese hand carved four poster (king) bed with luxurious bedding including 500 thread count sheets, chenille blanket and oh so comfy pillows. It also has a cozy sitting area for reading or watching TV on the large flatscreen. The bath with this bedroom includes a dual vanity, travertine floor, a walk-in custom travertine shower and a bay window with a bench seat that allows guests to lounge in serenity!

The second large bedroom is equipped with a sleigh (king) bed with silky sheets, chenille blanket and velvet duvet . This bedroom whispers romance with red walls, and sitting area offering a flat screen TV.

The third bedroom highlights a queen bed and also has a built-in desk. Enjoy the second bath amenities including travertine floors, glass tile counters, dual vanity and then ultimately relax and unwind in the jacuzzi tub!

The library has a cozy daybed and can accommodate 2 for sleeping, as well as the overstuffed extra large couch in the living area.

The game room is equipped with a full size pool table, bar and popcorn cart. The floors are stained concrete and offer a comfy couch with more games for kids and adults alike. This large room also allows a queen size bed that can be brought in very easily for more sleeping accommodations.

The dining and living area is open and airy with a large dining table, a long bar and a cozy bistro nook area (seats 13 all together). Relax and conversate in the main living area that boasts a flat screen TV, overstuffed chenille couch and gas log fireplace.

About Peri Kost

We (Jeff and Peri) enjoy making each guest's experience one to remember, and take care in making each visit tailored to each individual. We welcome any special requests and feel honored to share our spot

Peri Kost purchased this chateau / country house in 2002

Why Peri Kost chose Arroyo Grande

Peri was born in San Luis Obispo at Sierra Vista hospital when my father was attending Cal Poly. My parents then moved back to Modesto soon after I was born and raised the family there, all the while enjoying many vacations on the central coast growing up. After several years living in the Bay Area, I knew I wanted to move back from where I was born, and we did exactly that in 2002. We are located within minutes to several beaches, lakes, golf courses, wineries, shopping, antiquing, spas, hiking areas, national forests, recreation areas, live theatre, restaurants, and so much more

What makes this chateau / country house unique

You are minutes away from the beach, hiking, lakes and wineries! It is a country setting, yet luxurious in feel. Spacious open, airy home with the sound of birds, the scent of the ocean and stunning sunsets. Lots of spaces to enjoy inside and out! Wonderful for a romantic get-away, family get-together, retreat or celebration, and so much more....

Wonderful House, Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

Peri is a great host. She made sure that we had everything we need. When we wanted to do s'mores and they didn't have a fire pit, Peri came up with a solution and even set up chairs in the yard.

The interaction with the farm animals was one of the highlights of our trip. Kids from 10 to 80 enjoyed it!

The house is spacious and well appointed. It fit 14 of us very comfortably. The location is quiet but at the same time close to conveniences like a huge grocery store. It's a 10 minute drive from Pismo Beach and the sand dunes.

We travel a lot and stay in rentals and high-end hotels. Peri's house and her hospitality is one of the best. We were treated like good friends.

Thank you Peri!

Owner's Response: Raul, We loved having you and your family stay at our home and boutique farm. Thank you for your kind words. It truly gives us such joy to make our guests stay memorable. We were so excited to have your family here for your dad's 80th birthday, and I was so pleased that he wanted to take pics with our miniature horse! What a treat. We hope to see you again, as we are currently focusing on growing our gardens and bringing our guests the farm to table experience Peri Zen Farms

Peaceful lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home! Couldn't ask for a better experience. Our family of 12 settled nicely. The home had more than enough space for all of us. Peri was so kind and was a gracious host. She made sure we had what we needed.

She allowed us to feed the animals multiple times, and she was so patient with the kids.

The home was well-appointed, very clean, and had everything we needed. Hope to go back next year!

Gorgeous Home & and Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay at this beautiful home. The home itself is just gorgeous and exactly as pictured in the listing. It's spacious and worked very well for our group. We enjoyed the pool table and loaner boogie boards and beach toys as well. This home is in a great location- a peaceful, quiet, semi-rural area but still just a few minutes from major grocery stores, Trader Joes etc. Also an easy drive to the beach or the dunes or even day trips into Santa Barbara or up to Hearst Castle (both of which we did).

What really sets this home apart, though, is the host Peri and the experience she provides. She is so welcoming and goes out of her way to make sure you have everything you need to enjoy a relaxing vacation. My kids could not get enough of the adorable farm animals she has on site and eagerly awaited feeding time every morning to go and help out. Peri was so wonderful with the kids and with sharing her sweet menagerie with them. This undoubtedly went down as one of our more memorable vacations for them due to this experience. We loved having fresh eggs every day too! We had a bit of a hiccup on our side during our stay and also greatly appreciated Peri's understanding as we did what we could to make things right.

I would not hesitate to come back to Peri's lovely home and my kids are already begging to return. We highly recommend it!

Family and dog friendly stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our 2 sons, wives, 5 grandkids, and our Golden Retriever, recently stayed at Peri's beautiful place. The calm and peaceful neighborhood, along with the pastoral setting of the property, adds to the ambiance of the beautiful home. Peri is the perfect hostess, providing fun times for the kids as they participated with her in caring for the animals. She also provides good information on local restaurants and attractions. Extra touches include wet suits of various sizes, and beach toys to go to the nearby beaches. Located close to Oceano Dunes State Vehicle Recreation Area and Avila Beach, there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the ocean with the kids. The kitchen is well equipped, there is a backyard propane barbeque, and there is a theater style popcorn maker! Plenty of TV's, and a large game room with pool table allow for a variety of activities. Overall, all of us were very happy with our accommodations and our stay.

We Loved Zen Farm

  • 5 of 5

Zen Farm was perfect get away weekend for our crew of 8 adults and 2 children. It felt so homey that we did not want to leave the property. We settled in quickly and loved the spacious cooking and entering areas, game room, and farm animals. Peri was such a gracious host, and we took full advantage of feeding time to get up close in with the the pigs, goat, and miniature horse. We would love to return to Zen farms for a future weekend get away.
