Mountain Top Best View In Slo!

Family-friendly vacation home in San Luis Obispo
WE ARE OPEN - We are accepting reservations and hosting at this time. This is an isolated mountain top retreat-style property on 8 acres best suited for quarantine. My cleaning team has been with me for 6 years and we are exercising stringent cleaning and special safety measures to protect our guests. I am a heart transplant recipient, I sit on Stanford's Heart Transplant Board and I am a Mentor for new transplant recipients; to whom I teach best practices with PPE and isolation. Please feel free to inquire and we will share our protocols:

The "Irish Hills House" at the top of Prefumo Canyon has the Best View in SLO with stunning 180-degree views stretching from ocean, valley, mountain and cityscape. A true getaway retreat to recharge (clean & pet friendly) with a TESLA Charging Station. (No deposit necessary)


The "Irish Hills House" at the top of Prefumo Canyon has the Best View in SLO with stunning 180-degree views stretching from ocean, valley, mountain and cityscape. This spot is about the incredible view, convenient proximity to SLO and Cal Poly, central location between LA & SF and surrounding activities and experiences.

Most common guest comment, "The photos do not do the views justice!". You can get to know the property at @bourbonandcider (your four legged Golden Retriever Assistant Hosts) and @visitvista (the official IG) - we post daily!

Our pet-friendly vacation rental has two bedrooms with a king bed downstairs and three queen beds upstairs. We store an additional reserve queen size futon, roll away bed and a 2014 'Pack n' Play' for babies. There are bathrooms on each level, a large outfitted modern kitchen, potbelly stove for cozy nights and a large outdoor deck. There are great views from every window!

The coastal retreat halfway between LA and SF is a short 15 minute scenic drive to downtown SLO (Thursday Night Farmer’s Market, restaurants, nightlife etc.) and beautiful Avila Beach (spectacular beach, pier, shops, wineries, etc). Famous Avila and Sycamore Mineral Springs offer a therapeutic experience in a group setting or privately in secluded tubs set amongst the tree-canopied hillside. You are in a serene and peaceful setting, but not too far from all the action!

We are on 8 mountain top acres with world class views, hikes and wildlife right outside your door. Barbecue, share a meal and wine on the deck or picnic down by the raised garden beds. We invite our guests to enjoy fresh vegetables and eggs from the gardens and henhouse, so help yourself! In addition to our chickens, we have a pet tortoise named 'Walter' and a Koi Pond in front of the Irish Hills House.

The vacation rental is well suited to romantic & girls getaways, family friendly & cal poly parents stays, adventure seekers & coastal journeys.

This is a dedicated VRBO, which is professionally cleaned before each guest's arrival with clean and fresh, sheets and towels. The house is maintained in pristine condition in preparation to offer a 'hotel-clean' experience amongst breathtaking mountain-top views in nature and tranquility.

The Irish Hills House is across a deck from our main home. We respect boundaries and the experience is intimate and free of distraction.

Seven (7) night maximum stay unless arranged with host (Ryan). Please do not "Instant Book" for periods longer than 7 nights and discuss prior. Thank you. :) We run almost full occupancy, so if you see an opening and you are ready - please book! It happens too often that we discuss a booking with a potential guest and someone else 'instant books'. This is always a bummer!

See you soon!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Getaway
This property was absolutely gorgeous! The view was breathtaking and the home was perfect! The animals were all adorable, and Ryan was very helpful throughout the stay. I can't recommend this place enough.

5/5 Excellent

Stunning scenery
We loved our stay here in Irish Hills House. Everyone says it, but it really is true; the views are incredible. We were outside as much as possible to soak in the scenery. Ryan was very welcoming and quick to respond to our questions. We hope to stay again!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful views and great pups
The view is incredible, as everyone says the pictures don't do it justice. Everything about our stay was incredible, the house was nice and Ryan was great with communication, keeping us updated before the trip and helping out with things to stay during and even after it!

5/5 Excellent

Incredible change of scenery and pace
The views were incredible, to say the least. Ryan is a wonderful host and we enjoyed exploring the property and spending time with the animals. Our 3 year old loved watching Walter the tortoise and hanging out with Bourban and Cider. The house is very well appointed. It was exactly the change of scenery that we needed!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful location
Secluded, mountaintop getaway with amazing views of the San Luis Obispo valleys and Morro Bay in the distance. Pack everything with you because you may not want to drive back down the twisty road to town once you arrive.
