About Kathy

My husband and I have been happy owners of this property since 1996. We immediately fell in love with the panoramic view and privacy! We think you will love it too.

Kathy purchased this house in 1996

Why Kathy chose California

This property sold itself to us with its never ending picturesque views and the charming character of a once active almond orchard.

What makes this house unique

In the past few years vineyards have sprouted up and surrounded us, there is no better place than this! We will gladly send you off in the right direction for wine tasting and weekend fun if you desire to leave the property at all! We are centrally located just minutes from anything you may desire. We have the small historic town of Templeton to the west, walk back in time with a stroll down Main Street. Paso Robles is just to the north with all of its unique boutiques, restaurants, wineries and a large event almost every weekend. If you choose to visit the coast, the beach is appx 30-40 minutes away. Owners are on premises for all your trip needs. 'LIKE' Crooms Moonlight Ranch on Facebook!

Gorgeous property with views for days.

  • 5 of 5

So peaceful to be in a place that was so close to home but felt like such a getaway. We wanted to stay longer. Kathy and her husband made us feel so welcome it was like a home away from home. Our family made the most amazing memories and we can't wait to come back.

Family had a great time! Beautiful property, surrounded with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a great time staying at Kathy's place (Aug, 9-11, 2017). We were thoroughly satisfied with all aspects of this stay, from beginning to end. I highly recommend staying here. Thanks Kathy for the wonderful hospitality at your lovely place. Our family enjoyed the property; from the inside of the house, to the pool, and including the outdoor deck. We saw about 5 falling stars! :) It was great meeting your dog, Marley, as well. I want my own Marley now. I wish I could have asked you for the name of the breed. Next time we're in the San Luis Obispo County, we'll definitely be back. THANK YOU KATHY!!!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit! Our host was fantastic and the place was great. It was great to get away from it all and stay out here for a few days. The deck was a great spot to hang out and the pool was also fun. Thanks for taking such great care of us Kathy!

We loved the location and the view! The owner left fresh eggs and cheesecake,

  • 5 of 5

This location appears to be in the country. It is...in the middle of the vineyards, but within 5 to 20 minutes of all the wineries. We were welcomed with fresh eggs and English muffins for breakfast, a bottle of bubbly and a cheesecake. The inside is lovely and we enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and sitting out on the deck eating dinner and enjoying our wine! I have never stayed in a more welcoming and clean VRBO. I would stay here again in a minute! Thanks again for the wonderful food and the fresh flowers!

Beautiful, relaxing, and comfortable get away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our 2nd wedding anniversary. The outside deck was our favorite part. We enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The house was very comfortable with everything we needed. The host went out of her way to put fresh flowers throughout and surprised us with an anniversary treat. It was a little out of the way, but that's what we were looking for. It was very relaxing and great wineries nearby. Would definitely recommend for a quiet, beautiful weekend.
