Pictures don’t do justice to the unforgettable mountain top views of the Pacific Ocean, Seven Sisters (extinct volcanoes), rolling hills, mountains, valleys and flickering lights of San Luis Obispo.

The exceptional 8-acre mountain top property (halfway between SF and LA) has two bedrooms, chef’s kitchen and a large, elegantly appointed bathroom. Indoor areas transition seamlessly into outdoor living and dining spaces through French doors and large windows. The huge 500 square foot private deck provides a comfortable place to read, relax (honor wine & champagne bar) or dine (BBQ equipped) while taking in the commanding views.

Appointed with new premium fixtures, furniture, amenities and high-speed Wi-Fi throughout. Complimentary onsite electric car (Tesla, etc) charging station. This dedicated vacation rental is professionally cleaned (fresh linens, towels, etc.) and a hotel quality experience awaits your arrival. Accommodates up to six guests, with four being ideal.

The grounds feature complimentary fresh eggs from the chicken coop and seasonal vegetables from our raised beds, gardens, koi pond, "Walter's" tortoise habitat and an incredible vista of wildlife, particularly birds who frequent our feeders and popular roosting tree.

This coastal retreat halfway between LA and SF is a short 15 minute scenic drive to downtown SLO (Thursday Night Farmer’s Market, Cal Poly, 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!

Vista House is hard to leave once you arrive, with wonderful hikes, incredible natural surroundings and bountiful wildlife. Stock up at the Whole Foods at the bottom of the hill and settle in for a memorable experience!

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 VRBO'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 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

Why Ryan & Anna chose San Luis Obispo

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Hmmm, lets see ...

The views, the dogs, Anna and Ryan, proximity (short wine trips to Solvang to south and Paso Robles to north, 10 minutes to SLO), morning jogs along the ridge, morning/afternoon walks around the grounds, the deck, looking down at morning/evening fog in the valley, the lights of SLO in the distance at night time ...

I look forward to a return hopefully next year!

Cheers!!

Owner's Response: Hi Doug, What a fantastic review. It totally makes my day! I loved ve all the same things you appreciate about the property. Although, I’ll have to lose a few pounds before I get after those morning jogs. Anna and I really hope that you come back sometime soon. Best to you! Ryan (and a Anna)

Warm host. Beautiful views. Very dog friendly.

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay at the Vista home. The views are amazing. The interior of the house is very clean and well decorated. My host Anna was very accommodating. She gave me a call the morning before arriving to make sure that I can find my way to the house. When I arrived, she gave me a quick tour an extensive welcoming booklet so I can review in my own time. She also gave me fresh eggs from her chickens to make breakfast! I have already recommended this place to some friends for their next vacation.

A very happy family of 5 - grateful parents - Memories to last a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

After a long drive the day before we just wanted to get up to the home. We didn't realize just how far up into the mountain the home was located. After getting up there and realizing we had 3 kids that still needed to eat at it was after 8pm, neither my husband nor I felt like making the drive back down. You can imagine how my heart felt when Anna offered to prepare a feast of a dinner for my entire family of 5. A true blessing and it was FANTASTIC. The next morning we were able to see the long awaited view in the daylight. Despite the overcast morning, it was breathtaking. My children adored they friendly dogs and gathered eggs from the chickens. Walter slept the entire time we were there, but still an amazing thing to see in person. The home was spotless. The beds very comfortable. The shower is what dreams are made of. You feel like you are in a home where you are welcomed and wanted. It was wonderful and well worth the drive up the mountain.

Many thanks for sharing your home.

Best of SLO

  • 5 of 5

A picturesque property was introduced by a scenic drive. Ryan and his two golden retrievers, Bourbon and Cider, greeted us upon arrival. We also met Walter, the tortoise, and fed the koi in the pond. Ryan gave us a quick tour of the grounds. The property sits on about eight acres, with gorgeous views of the rock on Morro Bay as well as the Seven Sisters and Cal Poly SLO. The house was cozy, and there was plenty of room for five adults and three kids.

The property is tranquil and secluded but close enough to town to get a taste of SLO. The Thursday night farmers market and plenty of delicious restaurants are only a fifteen-minute drive away! If guests decide they cannot part with the sprawling landscapes, Anna is available to cook amazing meals. Unfortunately, we did not have the time to try any of her specials on our visit. We will have to try next time!

Thank you for an amazing stay, Ryan and Anna!

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!
