Photos and Description of this Paso Robles holiday house

1200 sq feet with 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Make yourself at home in our comfy-cozy getaway. It is an ideal home-base for exploring and enjoying the varied activities this corner of the central coast region has to offer. Enjoy a morning cup o’ Joe on the front porch or back yard while planning your day’s exploits. The chefs among you can whip up a snack or a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen, as guests kibitz and sip wine at the counter and adjoining dining room. The dining room table seats six with a leaf expansion to eight. Our secluded outdoor area is right outside the kitchen door and perfect for entertaining while grilling your favorite foods. Enjoy dining outdoors or just relaxing in the quiet and large landscaped backyard. When you have had enough fresh air for the day, unwind in the cozy living room while watching a movie or listening to music. And after you’ve wrung that last bit of fun from the day, the bedrooms beckon, with comfortable queen size beds with 3 inch gel toppers for a perfect night's sleep. The two full bathrooms are each near to a bedroom for convenience and privacy. An added feature is the forced air heater and air conditioner for your comfort when the weather is too toasty or chilly for you. We also have installed a whole house water treatment system.

About Mike and Maggie Van Dame

We love outdoor sports such as hiking, kayaking, bird watching gardening, etc. We also love to visit the beach and taste wine.

Mike and Maggie Van Dame purchased this house in 2013

Why Mike and Maggie Van Dame chose Central Coast California

This property is a classic a Paso Robles charmer and has located us closer to our daughter, son-in-law and new grandson who live in Paso Robles and to our family in the southern half of the state. This is the perfect house for all of us to get together at various times during the year. Our family loves wine and for years we have made wine tasting a family tradition. We have visited all California wine tasting areas and love the central coast area the best.

What makes this house unique

This property caught our eye the minute we saw its sunny exterior. The large covered front porch is a perfect spot to sit and relax in the afternoon. We enjoy watching the deer walk by (please do not approach the deer or feed them). This home makes you feel you are in a rural area when you are in walking distance to downtown. This is also a great location for bicyclists as Pacific Ave turns into Peachy Canyon Rd about 1/4 mile west of the house.

There are several outdoor entertainment areas and patios. The backyard is completely fenced for privacy.

The inside of the home has a unique layout as there is a bedroom and bathroom at each side of the house separated by the living room.

There is on and off street parking along our property line only. Room for 3 cars.

We have also installed a whole house water softening treatment system.

This home is a classic. We love it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great house! Clean and comfortable with a large private backyard with BBQ. The perfect place to relax after wine tasting. Everything you need to cook a meal is provided (great rice cooker). We couldn't have had a better time. We can tell the owner's take pride in this property and they treat it like their away from home. We will be back.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our time in this house - we travelled to Paso for a wedding and this home provided an amazing home base for all our weekend activities up and down the coast. Plenty of room, very clean, and super comfortable. Location is great and having a house to relax in rather than staying in a motel made for a much more enjoyable experience. There is nothing that Mike and Maggie haven't thought of! We're already planning our next trip and can't wait to stay again. Thank you for making our weekend one of the best, ever!

Great home--they thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home with all the details buttoned up! From the printed directions to the waiting bottle of local wine, these folks have it all covered. The 2 bedroom layout provided plenty of room & privacy for us & her folks. Clean, clean, clean! Everything worked the way it was supposed to. Just a wonderful property all the way around.

Wonderful, Cozy, Relaxing, Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We were NOT the normal Paso visitors, our catering crew was working like maniacs for two straight weeks of the California Mid State Fair, and frankly the only beacon of light and salvation was the house we rented from Maggie & Mike. Can't say enough about how perfectly amazing the situation was for all of us, even though we tended to not be on-site until night time. I would wholly recommend this rental to anyone, every detail was thoughtful and the house is well-appointed. And the shower in the master bedroom is magical! Super comfy beds, gorgeous front porch for relaxing w/ a local Sauv Blanc, and there's a small family of deer that seems to live in the area. No criticisms, just deepest thanks for everything this place meant to us over the extremely difficult run of work. Thanks again. :)

Perfect Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so homey and perfect. The patio and yard was welcoming, we sat out every night. My sister and our husbands shared it for our weekend at our nephews wedding and we loved this house so much. It was so much better than a hotel. We would definitely come back.

The property was quaint and felt like home. Open and relaxing indoors and outdoors.

  • 5 of 5

The property was what we hoped for to enjoy a relaxing memorial day weekend and explore the area.

It was close enough for a nice stroll to town and see the square on Friday night, easily find a restaurant to enjoy a simple and relaxing meal, most important a quiet location to sit outside on the patio and relax with no noise from the busy city of San Francisco.

The information you provided in the description was exact and did not leave anything to guess.

The property was clean and the area comforting, especially the patio and the grill worked great for a quick afternoon barbeque to take care of the simple hunger from walking around the area.

The owner made sure everything was explained on what to do and how to use the appliances, which we did not bother for any of the distracting conforms, TV.

Tis property was perfect for a get away to enjoy and experience the wine area and comfort of the Paso Robles vicinity.

Wine tasting is a favorite pass-time of our family and we never tire of the selection of wineries in the Paso Robles area. We are located on Pacific Ave at the gateway to Peachy Canyon Rd just a short drive to the west side wineries. There are a many other wineries in the Paso Robles area, each offering its own unique wines and amenities.

The California Mid-State Fair is a huge attraction in Paso Robles. The fair dates for next year are July 14 through July 27, 2014. There are plenty of great events and music for all to enjoy. You can take the shuttle to the fair which is in walking distance of Casa Del Sole.

We enjoy Friday night concert in the park downtown while sitting on the grass (bring a blanket). Wine and beer is available for purchase. And if you prefer grab a table at one of the great restaurants with outdoor seating and delight in the perfect meal while listening to music..

We love the outdoors and would like to encourage you to visit Montana De Oro State Park and the state parks of the San Luis Obispo coast. You will find Hearst Castle and many other amazing parks and attractions in this area.

There is so much to enjoy in this area and we will be adding more favorite places in the future.
