Beautiful adobe brick building (thermal mass means it stays cool inside during hot hot Atascadero summers!) with nice big yard. This is a private home for rent only during 4-8 weeks each summer, while the owner is on vacation abroad. The house is small with two bedrooms, a living room with a dining area and kitchen. There is a studio (3rd bedroom) in the back yard with an additional bed. Renters must agree to feed and care for 2 cats and chickens (very easy - low maintenance and free eggs in return!). The bathroom has a shower and there is a hot tub in the yard.

Atascadero is 3hrs drive from San Francisco bay area and 3.5 hrs from LA. The climate is 'inland' meaning it gets very hot in the summer and there is NO rain from June to November, however, winter rains make this region less desert like and more oak studded grasslands. By June the grass has turned golden... The house is located within walking distance of restaurants, grocery, cinema and bars, but located in a quite neighborhood. Good easy access to the 101 freeway.

If you've never been to California, this is probably not what you'd expect. While the beach is only a 30min away, the inland area has a very different climate. Think more 'Cowboys' and 'Western' than 'Baywatch'. This is wine country and it's horse country. You can go wine tasting from here by bike, find a stable and ride on one of the many back country trails, or you can drive to the beach, to cool down when the weather gets too hot. Hearst castle is 45min away. At night, light up the BBQ and stay outdoors where it stays warm until late, and is virtually mosquito free.

The California region

The map actually shows this cottage completely wrong. It's in Atascadero and just off Traffic Way. It's close to the downtown shops and restaurants in Atascadero.
