The "Irish Hills House" at the top of Prefumo Canyon has the Best View in SLO with stunning 180-degree views stretching from ocean, valley, mountain and cityscape. This spot is about the incredible view, convenient proximity to SLO and Cal Poly, central location between LA & SF and surrounding activities and experiences.

Most common guest comment, "The photos do not do the views justice!".

Our pet-friendly vacation rental has two bedrooms with a king bed downstairs and three queen beds upstairs. We store an additional reserve queen size futon, roll away bed and a 2014 'Pack n' Play' for babies. There are bathrooms on each level, a large outfitted modern kitchen, potbelly stove for cozy nights and a large outdoor deck. There are great views from every window!

The coastal retreat halfway between LA and SF is a short 15 minute scenic drive to downtown SLO (Thursday Night Farmer’s Market, restaurants, nightlife etc.) and beautiful Avila Beach (spectacular beach, pier, shops, wineries, etc). Famous Avila and Sycamore Mineral Springs offer a therapeutic experience in a group setting or privately in secluded tubs set amongst the tree-canopied hillside. You are in a serene and peaceful setting, but not too far from all the action!

We are on 8 mountain top acres with world class views, hikes and wildlife right outside your door. Barbecue, share a meal and wine on the deck or picnic down by the raised garden beds. We invite our guests to enjoy fresh vegetables and eggs from the gardens and henhouse, so help yourself! In addition to our chickens, we have a pet tortoise named 'Walter' and a Koi Pond in front of the Irish Hills House.

The vacation rental is well suited to romantic & girls getaways, family friendly & cal poly parents stays, adventure seekers & coastal journeys.

This is a dedicated VRBO, which is professionally cleaned before each guest's arrival with clean and fresh, sheets and towels. The house is maintained in pristine condition in preparation to offer a 'hotel-clean' experience amongst breathtaking mountain-top views in nature and tranquility.

The Irish Hills House is across a deck from our main home. We respect boundaries and the experience is intimate and free of distraction.

We run almost full occupancy, so if you see an opening and you are ready - please book! It happens too often that we discuss a booking with a potential guest and someone else 'instant books'. This is always a bummer!

See you soon!

About Ryan & Anna

Some of our favorite things are our home and friends, preparing meals and enjoying our animals including our rescued golden retrievers Bourbon & Cider (@bourbonandcider), Walter the Tortoise, Chickens, Koi, Ryan's Tropical Fish and Anna's Ball Python.

Our favorite place is Big Sur, we enjoy movies at the Sunset Drive-In in SLO, when friends visit and preparing meals with vegetables from our gardens, local farm stands and farmer's markets.

Our favorite trip was to Italy, where we stayed in Airbnb's and got engaged. We realized that less places and longer stays are the best. We like to visit communities and experience authentic people, activities and food.

Our favorite lodging places are Ventana in Big Sur for the spas, the Four Seasons in Palo Alto for the service, The Mayflower in SF for the experience and our friends floors to hang out and save money. :)

We get excited when we get good reviews and positive comments at our VRBO's (@visitvista). We truly love the serenity and views here and are very happy to have the opportunity to share this place with travelers from around the world. We appreciate and do not take for granted that guests chose us, stay with us and like the experience.

Anna enjoys creating artistic things like calligraphy, creating letters, crafts and care packages for friends and family, growing vegetables in her raised beds, hot springs and caring for her chickens.

Ryan likes serving guests, maintaining and improving the vacation rentals everyday, helping others create, plan and execute new ideas, planing trips and getaways and purchasing unnecessary products, services and anything else they sell on Amazon Prime.

We are grateful for the gift of life Ryan received on November 2, 2015 when he was given a heart transplant. We like to spend time together puttering around our home and enjoying our property and the wonderful people who visit us.

Anna & Ryan.

Ryan & Anna purchased this house in 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ryan and Anna were wonderful hosts. They were very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed for the stay. The location and view is truly amazing. It was definitely worth the drive up the mountain. Next time we are in SLO, we will not hesitate to contact Ryan and Anna.

The most beautiful view!

Could have enjoyed the view all day, surrounded by loveable golden retrievers, chickens, neighborhood dogs...what a happy place. House perfect for young families with kids good on stairs. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Thank you Anna and Ryan!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our time at this wonderful home. Anna and Ryan are wonderful, gracios hosts along with Bourbon and Cider. The views were spectacular! the morning walks a total joy for the spirit. We had strong winds in the afternoon and evening but spent most of that time in nearby Avila, where the weather always seems to be perfect.

Our group was made up of 8 adults and 3 dogs and we were very comfortable with the accommodations.

Looking forward to our next visit....minus the wind.

Owner's Response: Hi Cindy and Ray! It was so great to host you! I am glad that you enjoyed Avila as well. Anna and I love it too. Gosh, I know it was windy when you were here... that went away and I hope that you come back to experience it when it is less windy and you can really enjoy the outside! Very best to you, Ryan (and Anna)

Incredible views!

We had a great stay - the hosts were so nice, having the grill/kitchen was very convenient, and the views were amazing. It's at the top of my list for places to stay in SLO

Amazing weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group of girls had a wonderful time celebrating an upcoming wedding at Ryan & Anna's home. I was able to easily communicate with Ryan before the trip and he answered all the questions I had, and was able to get in touch with them if we needed anything.

The home itself was gorgeous!! I wish we were there for longer to enjoy more of the home. From the living room window, we were able to see Morro Bay and a beautiful view of San Luis Obispo. It was the perfect place to return and relax after a day of wine tasting and exploring SLO :) Aside from Ryan & Anna's beautiful home, Bourbon & Cider were the sweetest and friendliest dogs! We absolutely loved when they came out to greet us as we arrived to the house. Be sure to check out the chickens in the back as well! The hosts also included a list of must do activities in the welcome email- it was much appreciated.

I highly recommend booking this rental and staying for a couple days. We were only there for two days and wish we at least another two. Thank you Ryan & Anna for sharing your home with us!

USA Today calls San Luis Obispo 'The Happiest Place on earth'. The coastal retreat half way between LA and SF is ideal - a short 15-minute scenic drive to downtown SLO (Thursday Night Farmer’s Market, restaurants, nightlife etc.) or beautiful Avila Beach (spectacular beach, pier, shops, wineries, etc). Outdoor recreational activities are everywhere!
