The SpaceOur home is a 3 bedroom Queen Ann Cottage Victorian. Built in 1900, it was constructed almost entirely of redwood. The 12' ceilings and architectural details are lovely. We are located a short walk from downtown Guadalupe, the Dune Center, Historical Society, and some of the best Mexican restaurants on the Coast. Guadalupe is a good, central location to visit north Santa Barbara and south San Luis Obispo counties, since it sits right on the border of both counties.
A word about Guadalupe – I am a native Southern Californian (my grandparents arrived in the 1880's.) If you want to experience California as it was when we were an agricultural society of small, close-knit towns, Guadalupe is probably one of the last places left in Southern and Central Coast California for you to visit. It is quiet and laid back and the Central Coast's best kept secret. The residents are so nice you'll feel very welcomed. Like farm towns everywhere, though, it gets very quiet in the evening. But not to worry, there are wineries, spas, restaurants, playhouses, and movie theaters nearby. Guest AccessTwo bedrooms are available in our home - this posting is for the bedroom with a queen size bed. (The other has 2 twin (single) beds and is listed on a separate posting.) The kitchen, dining room, and living room are available for guests. Our garden is under restoration but you can sit under the apple tree any time.
Available for guests are:
•Zane, our cat.
•Breakfast of yogurt, cereal, and fruit. Coffee and tea is always available.
•Kitchen appliances, pots and pans, basic cooking needs, utensils, plates and glasses, including refrigerator are available for guest's use. There is an outdoor BBQ that can be available as well.
•Clean bed linens, bath towels, shampoo, and soap.
•Full bath with tub and shower is shared by guests only. Interaction with GuestsWe are “on call" to help make your trip as enjoyable as possible. We love traveling and meeting fellow travelers. We also love Guadalupe, the Central Coast, Los Angeles, Southern California, and all of California. We know a lot about them all and would be delighted to share our favorite activities, places, restaurants, and fun things to do which we locals know all about. In addition, one of us is a bird watcher and can share her favorite birding spots with you. We are also good at respecting your privacy.
The house is arranged so that the two guest bedrooms are on the west side of the house, with living and dining room in between the owner's rooms on the east side. The full bathroom will be shared by guests but the owner's bath is separate. This offers a good deal of privacy. The NeighborhoodWe are located in the old part of town so after exploring downtown Guadalupe, the Dune Center, or a day of birding you can rest and enjoy a glass of wine from our cozy front porch. Getting Around•The Amtrak Pacific Surfliner stops in Guadalupe twice a day going northbound from San Diego/Los Angeles to San Luis Obispo, and twice a day going southbound from San Luis Obispo to Los Angeles/San Diego.
