The SpaceBorghild's Villa (named after my Norwegian Bestemor (Grandmother)) is spacious and relaxing with an amazing south facing view. Our listing only allows us to describe it as offering 1 bedroom but actually we are offering 3 bedrooms with full access to the kitchen and most of the house, all included for the one price. Please read all the descriptions below (Note: this site is not an "entire house" listing). Each of the 3 bedrooms offered is fun and unique with its own private bathroom, a private mini fridge, smart TV, blu-ray DVD player, and a flight of stairs to a spacious loft with a custom iron railing. The first bedroom is more like a suite, and has 1 king bed in the loft (sleeping 2 comfortably) and a lovely sitting room on the main floor. The second bedroom has 1 king bed on the main floor and 1 king bed and 3 twin beds in the loft (no bunks) sleeping up to 7 comfortably. And the third bedroom has 1 queen bed on the main floor, and 2 extra long twin beds in the loft sleeping 4 comfortably. The large roomy kitchen has a complimentary coffee bar, and also if you wish, we can provide a continental type breakfast if requested in advance. The Master bedroom that we do occupy during your stay, is off the kitchen on the opposite end of the house from your 3 rented bedrooms. You will NOT be sharing the house with other Airbnb guests.
Of course our main goal is to provide a spacious retreat-type atmosphere for everyone to have fun eventful activities and gatherings, laugh a lot with friends and family, and have a great time creating memories, and alcohol and music is permitted.
Suggested Bridal event:
We enjoy hosting entire pre-wedding bridal parties, where the bride and her bridesmaids may spend a few nights, and then get ready and prepare for the wedding, before leaving for your wedding venue. Typically the mothers and grandmothers and aunts etc. join in for this occasion, and we serve everyone a lovely brunch while all are getting prepped for the eventful wedding day! Its a great way not only to prepare, but to decompress, visit, and make special memories. With enough comfortable space to have make-up and hair done, everyone is beautiful and ready to go, adding some fun to your most memorable day! Guest AccessOur goal is to make you feel welcomed, comfortable, and at home.
Please use the big front doors for your initial arrival.
Typically we book only one guest and their group at a time, so you will NOT be sharing Borghild's Villa with other Airbnb guests. Also with the exception of the garage, home office, and master bedroom (we do occupy the master bedroom and will be mostly present during your stay) you will have full access to all of the house, living spaces, patio, and the finished landscape areas. This includes full use of the the kitchen (I can help you navigate) and all the appliances, dishes, utensils, pots/pans, outdoor gas grill, etc. The patio (comfortable and entirely usable, however some landscape is still a work in progress), has chairs and tables available to sit and enjoy coffee, wine or cuisine looking out over our lovely view, and we are happy to announce that our new outdoor fire pit is now completed! Each bedroom door has its own number code lock. Also the 3 private bedrooms are on the opposite end of the house from our master bedroom, that we occupy. Also we would like to mention that each bedroom has a flight of stairs from the main floor of the bedroom to the upper loft. Please note that the stairway design does not support a baby gate either at the top or the bottom of the stairs, and take this into consideration if you intend to have your precious children as guests.
Free parking is available for a number of vehicles. Smoking tobacco, e-cigs, and e-vape is allowed, but outside only please! Thank you! Interaction with GuestsWe are open to discuss any requests, desires or concerns you may have during your stay here at Borghild's Villa. Please check out our Guidebook on this site for some of our many recommendations for our beautiful Central Coast California area. A few of the many things we have available are card games, board games and ping pong, corn-hole, trampoline, etc., all of which you are welcome to enjoy. You will have full access to the living spaces, and kitchen with all the appliances, dishes, utensils, stemware, ice buckets, etc., so please feel free to cook or BBQ your own cuisine whenever you like. We do have an outdoor gas grill available and open for you to use.
The house is large enough that we can provide you as much privacy as possible, if more privacy is what you prefer. However please be aware of the fact that we ourselves do occupy the house during your stay, and use the master bedroom that is off the kitchen and on the opposite side of the house from the 3 bedrooms you are renting. The NeighborhoodOur expanded neighborhood offers a full variety of things to do; Visit several lovely beaches, golf, sand dune buggies/rental, wineries, breweries, hiking trails, bicycling, kayaking, an easy stroll on the beaches and piers, night time beach bonfires, fishing, surfing, paddle-boarding, sea animal life, whale watching (seasonal), horseback riding, and great restaurants, just to name a few (Please refer to our Guidebook on our site). Our weather is usually moderate, and our greener months are usually in winter, from November to early May (given there is no drought), and our summer season is typically in the late spring through October, this is when the many vineyards are green and colorful! The walk around our immediate neighborhood is quite nice with lovely views, and the end of our street you can see the Pacific Ocean at a distance. Also our immediate neighborhood is basically 5 small cities squished together, and we locals call it the 5 cities area. Arroyo Grande, Oceano, Grover Beach, Pismo Beach, and Shell Beach. Other cities and towns are fairly close by as well. Getting AroundOur home is not close to public transportation, so we recommend having your own vehicle, and of course, GPS. The closest train station is about 9 minutes from our house (Grover Beach) and there is public bus transportation in town but not within walking distance from our home. There is no subway system here. There is however a Hop On wine/beer small bus tour service in our area for private and social tours, you can hire and book ahead of time, that will come and pick you up from our door (HopOnBeerTours). I recommend booking in advance as they are a popular service. The good news is, we only have one freeway (Hwy 101) and no smog! Traffic usually is not problematic. We are approximately a 8 minute drive to Pismo Beach and a bit further for Shell Beach, Avila Beach, Pirates Cove, and further up the Hwy 1 to Morro Bay and beyond for more beautiful beaches. We are a few minutes from shopping and dining in our quaint town of Old Arroyo Grande, and a few minutes more to several shopping centers, wineries, wine-bars, breweries, golf courses, etc. Other Things to NoteDuring Summer season and most Holiday weekends we have a 2 night minimum. (Airbnb does not offer a space to enter this information)
Also all children 6 months and older will be counted in the final guest count.
Our home is fairly new, and because of our severe CA drought, we are currently forced to working very slowly on finishing the landscape in the back and to the side patio of the house, a work in progress, so we pray for lots of rain this season!
There is a private lock and number code on each of your bedroom doors.
We do own a outdoor dog and cat. We want to accommodate you as best we can, so please notify us when booking if you have any special needs, or dog or cat allergies. Also let us know if you have any specific food allergies, or dietary concerns, or anything else you think we need to be aware of.
Smoking tobacco, e-cigs, and e-vape is allowed, but outside only please! Thank you!
