Parking available right outside your door, or on the street.
We are in and out during the day working different businesses.Some rooms are off limits, as well as our garage conversion, which is occupied by tenants.
There is a nice field with walking trails at the end of the street with Eucalyptus trees and plants native to the area. There are many parks and playgrounds close by. Interaction with GuestsWe are low-key but pretty busy. However, we are excited to meet you and happy to help you with places to go/do/see beyond our welcome packet so please feel free to let us know if you need anything. We sometimes are up late but up early to walk Gunner and make coffee.
Our dog, Gunner, is a German Shorthaired Pointer and is very friendly. We ask that you keep the outside gate closed at all times since he is pretty stealth and will sneak off down to the field. He always comes back, however, I would just rather someone be with him when he does! Keep inside bedroom door closed since we do not allow him in the bedrooms. The NeighborhoodThis family friendly neighborhood is established with many long-time residents. The drought has hit us all hard, and the appearance of the area reflects that, but it is not indicative of the cohesiveness and safety of the neighborhood. Hopefully the rain will green things up a bit! We know pretty much everyone on a personal basis. We appreciate cautious drivers as many times there are children riding their bikes or scooters . We are located within walking distance of schools,churches, markets, and bus stops. Getting AroundThere is a public transit with stops just a block from our home. The bus can take you anywhere from Santa Ynez to San Luis Obispo and beyond. We include a bus schedule/map in the welcome packet. There are car rental agencies close by,some will pick you up!
Santa Maria Airport a couple miles away.
