Awesome Place -- 5.1 Stars

I put together our family reunion every 2 years. This year I chose the Turtle House. Every single family member insisted that we have it there from now until eternity !!!!! We love the layout of the house and how the concave of the structure focuses on the beautiful backyard. The backyard is well landscaped and also houses two large turtles, who are an attraction in themselves. The home sits in the historic town of Edna, of which, the creek that flows through it is where my brother and I swam and fished back in the '50's. And it sits only a couple hundred of feet from my most favorite winery, their SLO wine tasting bar, Sextant Wines. The bedrooms are large and fitted with great bathrooms. We had rooms that the grandchildren could play in, separate from the adults engaging in conversation. The house sits alone with no commercial or residential noise. We ALL had a fantastic, comfortable, and enjoyable time. We will return!!!!!!! As I close this I want to say that the owner, Gay, is a wonderful person and one can tell that she takes great pride in making her clients happy and comfortable. Au Revoir !!!!!

Perfect family wedding vacation!

We will forever hold a special place in our heart for The Turtle House. My family flew in from TX and loved every moment of their stay! The house is HUGE and the beds are comfortable! Everyone slept so well! The tortoises were the center of the excitement. Can't wait to stay again at our next family event!

Wonderful House, Location and Host's

This was our second time at the Turtle House, last year for our daughter's wedding this year we met to celebrate the upcoming birth of her daughter. What a beautiful house to accommodate our out of town family and host our SLO friends and family. The outside patio and garden area couldn't get any better for morning coffee and sunset cocktails. The Turtle House is a must for family gatherings, reunions, weekends in the Central Coast wine region, great location to base out of for the many wedding venues in the area. Gay is an absolute joy to work with.
