About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, Sleeps 6 (4 Preferred)

Relax, recharge and escape to this luxurious retreat experience in paradise

- Best view in SLO County!

- Luxury Accommodations

- Indoor/Outdoor living

- Pet Friendly

- Wifi + 3 Smart TVs

- Hotel Clean & Comfort

- 12 minutes to SLO

- TESLA Charging Station (complimentary)

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 Central Coast California

This is the best vacation rental in SLO.

This is a countryside luxury escape with outstanding views on top of a mountain half way between LA and SF at the gates of the Pacific Highway through Big Sur and 10 minutes from SLO (Whole Foods, Costco, Bevmo, etc. Downtown, Farmer's Markets, Cal Poly, etc.) - Secluded and peaceful, close to SLO, unforgettable views, new luxury everything - Perfect.

My husband and I had a relaxing and peaceful stay. The property was immaculate and beautiful. Thoughtful amenities. And the view, wow! Anna was wonderful and just the right mix of welcoming but not intrusive. Loved the doggies and chickens. Ready to go back!

House has everything

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in a bunch of VRBO rentals and this was far and away the most well equipped one. They had more amenities than I could have ever thought of. And the hosts were so friendly. Ana called us while we were driving up to make sure we were ok. Ryan greeted us upon our arrival but then gave us our space the rest of the weekend. The property is great and perfect for just escaping for a few days. Definitely worth the drive. Our kids and dogs loved playing with Bourbon and Cider, their two Goldens. We will certainly return in the near future. Thanks guys.

Vista House Delivers

  • 5 of 5

Vista House delivers on all levels- Hosts, Ryan and Anna, went above & beyond to create a one of a kind luxurious and tranquil retreat. On top of that, they were very helpful in answering our questions and providing tips about the area. The panoramic views are phenomenal, amenities top notch and there are extra bonuses such as their two friendly golden retrievers, Bourbon & Cider (my 10 y/o played with them for hours on end), the honor wine bar, and the option to order Anna’s delicious meals (thoughtfully prepared and delivered right to your door). We loved Anna's romesco. My son read this review and said I forgot to mention a few things: the koi pond (food provided), chickens, and Walter the tortoise. Also, the extra comfortable beds and pillows. He rated Vista House a “10” out of 10 stating it’s “the best place in SLO ever.” We agree. Perfect for families, a romantic getaway or a peaceful retreat. We’ll definitely return. Thank you Ryan & Anna.

Great views, accommodations and hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Despite clouds the view is fantastic. The beds are comfortable and kitchen well equipped, and what a bathroom! We had Anna cook us dinner which was delicious. Lots to do locally, but we also sat on the porch reading and soaking up the view. Excellent stay!

The pictures don't even do this place justice. Anna and Ryan thought about everything. They really put their guests needs before their own. The views and the peaceful environment make this the perfect escape. I will be a return visitor for sure!

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!
