The Casitas of Arroyo Grande
What We Love
- Breakfast is served on your own private patio
- The solar-heated, 82-foot lap pool with its heart-stopping views of the Arroyo Grande valley and poolside bocce ball court
- Owners Pat and Tony Goetz, who pay close attention to the décor of each of the four casitas, which feature the work of local artists
What To Know
- Although the owners’ sheepdog, Kona, serves as a mascot, guests’ pets are not allowed
- “Cielo,” the largest casita, is set back from the others and down several stone steps; great for privacy, but best avoided if mobility is a problem
- Wineries, sights, beaches, and the gourmet restaurants of historic San Luis Obispo are nearby—but you’ll definitely need a car to reach them
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site
There’s a reason the Casitas at Arroyo Grande are a sought-after site for weddings; the entire property exudes romance, from the gas fireplaces in the casitas to the stunning mountain views from the central fountain. Owners Pat and Tony Goetz transformed this private estate into a four-cottage property that has the charm of a B+B and the sensibility of a boutique hotel. They aim to be welcoming, inviting guests to wine and cheese in the main hacienda, but not intrusive, dropping off breakfast at each casita’s private patio. The Spanish Revival architecture and Tuscan-style gardens complete the scene at this quintessential central California oasis.
In the Area
Guests who can drag themselves away from their private patio or the solar heated lap pool can revisit the Gatsby era by touring nearby Hearst Castle, visit the Monarch Butterfly Grove, horseback ride or swim on Pismo Beach, stroll the galleries and shops of San Luis Obispo, or hit up some of the local wineries—15 of which are within a 15 minute drive of the property. The area is known for its Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs; one more reason to raise a toast to California’s central coast.
How to Get There
We just returned from a marvelous 3 night, 4 day mid-week stay at the Casitas of Arroyo Grande. What a rare gem of a find. Modern Spanish motif with a feeling of opulent luxury. The individual casitas with a magnificent view of the valley and home vineyard gives you the feeling of being the only guests there. Individually prepared breakfast in bed starts your day with a different entree , fresh coffee, fresh squeezed OJ, and home baked breads and fresh fruits. Centrally located to the quaint town of Arroyo Grande with it shops and outstanding restaurants (The Mason is a must for dinner). Pismo Beach, The Edna Valley wine district and Lake Lopez are all within a short, scenic drive. Tony and Pat are absolutely wonderful hosts who have your pleasure and enjoyment at the forefront of their home. Highly, and without reservation, recommend.
It's our very special place where we feel at peace and pampered. The property is amazing and Pat and Tony take care of our every need. This was our 3rd visit and we will continue to come back whenever we can get away from our hectic lives.
A special call out to Kona the adorable doggy that lives here - she actually smiles at us each morning as Tony and Pat deliver our delicious breakfast!
Tony and Pat are so charming. Pat greeted us with a warm hand shake and smile. She made us feel like long time friends. The breakfast delivered by Tony was fantastic. Kona, their beautiful dog, was friendly, but wasn’t around enough for me. The lap pool was refreshing and overlooking the vineyards. I agree with another reviewer that I would like to keep this a secret, but I do want Tony and Pat to keep this oasis so we can all enjoy it again and again. Thank you for a wonderful 2 nights. We came for cooler weather since we had 110 and 105 for those 2 days at our home. We will return again.
