Minutes to Pismo Fireworks & Wineries
We are lovers of people, travel and adventure, and although we travel the world extensively, we feel there is no better place to call home than California's beautiful Central Coast. With the abundance of local activities, you are likely to spot us out hiking, kayaking, at a yoga class, music event or wine tasting in Edna Valley or Paso Robles. We also enjoy history and exploring archaeological sites, road trips in our trailer, river rafting, canyoneering and rappelling. We love sharing our special haven, tucked back on 3 acres that Frank lovingly tends to, and are here to help make sure your stay in the San Luis Obispo area is both relaxing, and eventful. If you have a question about the area we can point you in the right direction ensuring the best possible experiences. 5 things we love best when we travel are a clean dwelling, comfy bed, luxurious linens, good coffee, and a helpful betting that you do too!
Why Elise chose Carpenter Canyon
Designed in the unique Santa Fe hacienda style architecture, our property has a very special ambiance. The property is very private and perfect for adults as a romantic couple's or girlfriends' weekend getaway, but with all the activity options of the Central Coast and amenities of home, it would be even better to stay longer. PLUS, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! So much to do! Hiking, biking, surfing, kayaking, fishing, yoga, golfing, Cal Poly Performing Arts (PAC), local music events, food events, wine tasting... Minutes to beaches, hiking trails, factory outlet shopping, Village of Arroyo Grande, downtown San Luis Obispo, Cal Poly, Pismo Beach, and Avila Beach. Within less than 10 miles from 22+ wineries, plus hundreds more in Avila, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez, Santa Barbara. For Cyclists: lots of trails and back roads to ride, or you could even ride to the wineries. And the casita has a large covered area for stowing your bikes! 1.25 hours to San Simeon to see Elephant seals and Hearst Castle. 1 hour to the Danish village of Solvang; in the summer you can enjoy the outdoor theatre. Did you forget something? No problem! CVS is 2 minutes up the road, and Trader Joe's is 5. Special Events you don't want to miss: October-February: Monarch Butterfly Season June-September: Witness the Humpback whales as they migrate between Mexico and Alaska

Great weekend getaway!
The property was as advertised. It was an excellent casita in an outstanding location. The access to the surrounding cities and vineyards was ideal. It was a perfect getaway. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and Elise was super attentive to all our needs/questions.
We loved our stay there. Everything we needed was there and Elise made us feel very welcome. We would definitely like to stay again when we are in the area.
Lovely casita in the hills
Well-conceived and well-maintained hide-away. Private, but the owners are right next door if you should need them. A nice touch was that they had bottle of wine ready for us upon arrival! Which we needed! We enjoyed the winter greenery and the hummingbird that liked the plant near where we sat in the sun. A lovely place.
Casa de los Suenos is absolutely charming!
We've been going to the Arroyo Grande area for years to visit family & thought we'd take a chance and stay somewhere other than the one of the hotels along the 101. Best decision ever! This beautiful property is both secluded and ideally located to see the countryside and local wineries, close to downtown Arroyo Grande and a quick 20 min. drive to San Luis Obispo. Elise and Frank were wonderful hosts and have outfitted the Casa de los Suenos with everything you could possibly need or want. The charming little Casa was adorable, spotless and very comfortable. Definitely our top choice for future visits!
Comfort, private and convenient
Received a warm welcome from Elise and Frank. The Casita is beautiful and has all details of comfort and convenience. Location is private yet close to beach an restaurants. We will definitely stay here again.
WE loved hosting you both - thank you for sharing your art with us. We hope to see you again!
