About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

On top of the world in a beautiful cape cod home with breathtaking views.

You'll drive up the gated driveway and immediately be immersed in the quiet and solitude of our hilltop retreat. Pass the bubbling fountain and through the flower gardens to the expansive front porch where you will see why "Hilltop" is the best way to describe our home. Enter the front door and be surrounded by the warmth of oak floors, crown molding and leaded glass windows. 4 large bedrooms(2 en suite), and cozy nooks throughout the house create a haven of comfort. Watch TV, listen to music, curl up in the library with a good book, or sip wine in any of several spots on the 5 acre property. Enjoy watching abundant wildlife, including deer grazing and soaring hawks as you admire the massive oaks on the acreage. Luxury mattresses will entice you to enjoy a peaceful night's sleep. Wine tasting, antiquing, relaxing on the beach are just a few of the draws to this beautiful area.

About Ann Grash

Owners Chuck and Ann purchased this home after falling in love with the amazing views and the private setting. The unique quality of the home that was custom built from authentic Cape Cod house plans allowed them to showcase their collection of antiques and collectibles. The large property gave them the space to create an oasis showcasing their love of gardening.

Ann Grash purchased this house in 1994

Why Ann Grash chose Atascadero

We purchased our home in Atascadero so that we could enjoy the beauty and tranquility of life on the Central Coast. After 20 years, we made the decision to downsize and regretfully left our paradise behind. We then decided that we wanted to share with others the lifestyle that we had enjoyed for so many years and so we offer you the opportunity to relax on our front porch with a cup of coffee in the morning or maybe on the back patio with a glass of wine watching the sun set over the hills.

What makes this house unique

From the time you drive up the driveway and enter the home, the views in all directions, will take your breath away.

Rental property was very comfortable and relaxing. Communication with owner was excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the rental and with the owner. But, working with Home Away was very difficult. I prefer not to work with Home Away for future rentals. Therefore the 5 stars is an evaluation of our stay in the rental . . . it does not reflect our experience in booking the property.

Perfect Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

The property itself is breathtaking. It's not just the inside of the house that is charming and makes you feel like you're home while away-from-home, it was the entire atmosphere of this house that made our weekend away so special. The pictures really don't do it enough justice, you'd have to see in person what an incredible property this is.

My husband and I were looking for a place to host our baby shower, tried multiple other sites and made many, many inquiries, but weren't having any luck. We finally found this place, explained our situation, and to be straight to the point, the owners were the most wonderful and fair people we could ever hope to meet. All of our guests loved this house and thought it was just the perfect setting to host our friends and family.

My husband and I have never rented a vacation property before, so needless to say, this was a very fortune experience for us as first-timers. The house, the property, and the experience was everything and more than what we were expecting.

I wasn't able to partake in any of the wine tasting that my guests were able to experience while I was up there, but the location is very convenient to the downtown area. It's only a span of about 3 miles til you get into the downtown area, but this property is situated so perfectly, it affords you all the privacy and the intimacy you could want. It's truly a beautiful neighborhood. If you're looking for a place to get away for some wine tasting or beer sampling (my husband loved that Firestone was only a short distance away), but want to stay somewhere that is inviting enough to make you also want to stay in and enjoy some wine in the backyard overlooking a perfect view, then this is the place I would recommend. It's spacious enough to fit multiple guests, but it's also intimate enough to just have a romantic weekend by yourselves.

I'll never forget this experience, not just because of the baby shower, but because the beauty and character of this property. You won't ever find fairer or more pleasant people to rent from. We will be coming back.

Wine Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place for a weekend retreat! We were up from LA with two other couples doing some wine tasting, and it was soooo relaxing to come back to this oasis in the country side. The kitchen was well stocked, and the beds were super comfortable. I would totally book here again when coming to the central coast.

The Ultimate Peaceful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The attention to detail in this property is amazing. Everything you could possibly want for comfort is provided. As you sit on the porch and look over the view, you'll feel like you're in Tuscany. Or, if you want sightseeing and adventures, many excellent avenues are nearby. This is the perfect place for romantic quiet alone time, an excellent base camp for a girls long weekend getaway, or a fun place to gather the family for a small reunion of fun. You will not be disappointed!
