Make your trip to the Central Coast one you'll remember by staying in a real Lifeguard Tower! We've converted an authentic lifeguard tower into a tree fort/ bedroom! When you book with us you're getting The Boathouse; an incredibly well equipped studio with everything you need & accompanying Tower #2! You'll have a kitchen with filtered water, full bath with tub, w/d, patio, gas fire pit, hot outdoor shower, BBQ, bikes (4), play fort/swings, Nvidia Shield system, Amazon TV, & 3 bed options!!!

The space
***We are taking the following measures to provide a sanitary environment and protect against COVID 19: Running an Ozonator after each guest, Spraying Lysol after each guest, cleaning using a bleach based solution, steam mopping the floors, and washing linens in hot water. It's everyone's responsibility to help stop the spread of this virus so if you have symptoms or are feeling sick, please cancel your stay. Thank you!***

The Boathouse & Tower #2 sit approximately 43 ft. behind the main house at the back of our property. When you enter you'll walk through the red gate, up our driveway, and back to the left of our garage where you'll see the two units. We are in the City of Arroyo Grande, in a residential neighborhood, two blocks off the main thoroughfare called Grand Ave. The nearest beach access is at the end of Grand Ave; 2 miles from the house or a 5 minute drive. Downtown Pismo Beach & the pier is a 10 minute drive/ 4 miles away. We are conveniently located and within walking distance to grocery stores, coffee houses, restaurants, and convenience stores.

The Boathouse is a studio that has one queen bed, full kitchen, full bath with tub shower, and one full sized couch sleeper. It's been recently remodeled with a nautical feel. Our newest addition is Tower #2; an authentic re-purposed lifeguard tower pulled off the sands of Pismo Beach that's been converted into a tree fort! When you book with us you get both units for your stay.

We've tried to provide everything you need for a convenient trip. The kitchen is equipped with cooking tools, dishes, flatware, blender, etc., so you can prepare your own meal if you like. We provide Wolfgang Puck coffee, assorted teas, creamers, sugar, assorted snacks, and even supplies for S'mores! We have beach towels and beach chairs for your use and provide some extra toiletries too. There is a washer/dryer in case you're on a long trip and need to catch up on some laundry (we even provide the detergent)! The Boathouse has both heating and air conditioning. The beds (2 queens & 1 full) are high quality memory foam mattresses that provide a very comfortable night's rest. Enjoy the sunset from the deck of Lifeguard Tower #2 or take a spin to Pismo on beach cruisers that we provide with a little advance notice.

Our space is best suited for couples, small families, or 3 singles. Although we have three beds, we keep our guest count to a maximum of 4, as there is only 1 bathroom. Guests staying in Tower #2 must feel comfortable navigating a spiral staircase as well as climbing into a bunk style bed. They will also have to go out and down to use the restroom in The Boathouse. Tower #2 is not big by any means, but we've equipped it with many comforts such as a safe and efficient heater to keep you warm on cool nights, a smart television with NVIDIA gaming system, and a sound machine. On warmer days you can open the sky vent and we also have a small fan but it never really gets too hot in there. The Tower is better insulated than a tent or a tepee but it's not as quiet as sleeping in a real home. If you're a really light sleeper, it's probably not the right situation for you. But, for many it's a fun and interesting place to sleep and one you will certainly never forget!

We invite you to come & play on the Central Coast and experience a truly unique Air'BnB' home. Channel your inner Mitch Buchannon as you sleep in the Lifeguard Tower or throw your kids up there and let them play video games as you relax on the patio! However you decide, we look forward to hosting you soon.

Guest access
Driveway Parking, Wi-Fi, Amazon Fire TV (No Cable TV but we provide Netflix and Hulu), NVIDIA SHIELD gaming system, Outdoor Shower, Gas Grill, Outdoor Gas Fire Pit, Private Patio with dining table, Play Fort & Swings in the main yard for the kiddos, Lifeguard Tower Treehouse, & Beach Cruisers (with a little advance notice).

Other things to note
If you'd like to check in prior to 4 pm, please let us know. We dont mind early arrivals as long as we can accomodate for cleaning times. Occasionally we might need full access to our driveway and in that case we'll ask that you take a street parking spot.

We're an active and fun family that enjoy biking, hiking, camping, and exploring the outdoors. We like building and creating. We've worked really hard creating our Lifeguard Tower Treehouse. A one-of-a-kind treehouse made from an authentic lifeguard tower pulled from the sands of Pismo Beach! We like meeting new people and catering to families as we have a 5 year old son ourselves. We welcome you stay, play, and experience the wide array of activities the Central Coast has to offer!

During your stay
We have a keyless entry and give you a door code so you can check-in according to your own schedule. We usually wait to see our guests as we cross paths in case you want your privacy. We try to say "hello" if we hear you coming or going in the driveway. But we're busy people too, so we might miss meeting you if you're just staying one night. On the weekends we're typically home working on some kind of project. We're easily reached by phone and we like to check in with guests via the Airbnb chat. But, please feel free to come knock on our door if you need anything at all!
