Luxury hilltop estate w/ private pool and hot tub, surrounded by wineries!

If you're looking to experience the hillside beauty of California's Central Coast, you won't find a better home base than Rancho Notso Grande. This luxurious home combines stunning natural sights and deluxe amenities, like a private infinity pool and hot tub, into an unforgettable wine country destination!

This home for six is located on a family estate in the rolling hills between Cambria and Paso Robles, surrounded by the region's best wineries. Just a few miles west is the small town of Templeton, where you can enjoy a meal out and charming shops without the hustle and bustle of a larger city.

The road to the house winds up a mountain road and under a canopy of trees, before you arrive at the majestic stone entrance - complete with a fountain. Inside, you'll have flatscreen TVs with DirecTV and Netflix streaming thanks to the Apple TV and free WiFi - but you'll probably find yourself more captivated by the wall of windows and gorgeous mountain views. For a fitting soundtrack to accompany your getaway, listen to music throughout the house with Tune In or Pandora.

Spend your days playing games of pool on the table off the living room, soaking in the outdoor hot tub, or swimming in the infinity pool. When the sun sets, head inside to warm up by the fireplace, or whip up a delicious meal with the stainless steel appliances in the gourmet kitchen (including a Dacor five-burner gas stove). Three comfortable bedrooms give everyone the space they need to feel comfy - the master even has a jetted tub for even more relaxation!

Book today and place your reservation for this gorgeous wine country estate!

Beautiful view and house! Super private. I would return a million times if I could!

The panoramic views are stunning of the hill sides and the beautiful home on top of the hill. We saw deer, wild turkeys, horses, black angus cattle, and eagles along with many birds. The home owners are very helpful providing many suggestions for sightseeing, dining, and day trips to the ocean, wineries, olive oil tasting, and etc. to name a few. We thoroughly enjoyed the home as it immaculate as pictured. Our vacation this year with our daughter's family was Outstanding, Picturesque, and provided many fond memories and we look forward to returning in the future.

Fantastic house
We loved it all. Comfortable, luxurious, had everything we needed.

Awesome, awesome, awesome. Had a great time and we enjoyed it so much that the beach getaways that we were planning never happened. My family wanted to stay at the house and enjoy the relaxation. The only thing for me that better instructions are needed to find the appliances. Spent several minutes searching for the appliances until I found the compartments. Upscale appliances. Also the range hood wasn't working. But other than that, 5 stars. Looking forward to next time.
Manager response:
We apologize for any difficulty in locating the appliances in the kitchen. We do have details on operating things provided in the home binder, and guests are always welcome to call for assistance. We are glad to see our guest enjoyed their stay!

View. Privacy. Peace and quiet.

We had such a fantastic time at this home! While there were so many great things to say, our top three favorite characteristics were 1) THE VIEW, 2) pool/hot tub area, and 3) proximity to wineries. Also loved the very well appointed kitchen, the comfortable bedrooms and the huge grill!

Wonderful place . Perfect for families. Very peaceful

Our family of five (3 boys under 12) was absolutely spoiled in ending our 3 week trip to the US with a 3 night stay at this property!! While some of the decor may be a little dated, the house and surrounds are stunning. So much space in the house with 3 great bedrooms and the biggest master suite I’ve seen! The pool and spa area are just perfection - the pool was a bit bigger than the pic appears and lots of fun for all 5 of us! The pool table was a big hit with our boys as well. Also the location provided the added benefit of being much warmer than staying in the coast in Cambria - average temps for us each day at the house were around low- mid 80s whereas in Cambria they were in the mid/high 60s! The drive to Paso Robles, Cambria, San Simeon (elephant seals are definitely worth a look!), etc is all very easy. It was incredibly hard to say goodbye to watching the various birds of prey that were constantly circling through the valley looking for food - very cool to see them flying so close overhead while sitting in the spa or pool! I’d highly recommend this property to anyone looking to relax, recharge and explore the coast and inland areas.
Manager response:
The carpets have been cleaned, and the pool area and screens are scheduled to be taken care of. Guests are welcome to call us for assistance with rowdy guests not observing quiet hours. Thanks!

The house has a nice layout, and a backyard to die for!!!
Laurel A. Jun 2018
if you are looking for a place away from it all...this place is fairly remote. Takes 15 mins to get to hwy 101 or Hwy 1. The views are beautiful
Tracey J. May 2018
Rented this home for a family party and it was perfect! Amazing pool with incredible views. Everything was very clean. Perfect house for a party.
Barbara A. May 2018
This place was incredible! So peaceful and beautiful. The house was spacious and tastefully decorated. The infinity pool and spa pool was so gentle to the skin (not chlorine based). We enjoyed visiting Paso Robles restaurants and galleries. But our favorite time was playing games at the house including pool. What a treat this vacation was.
Randolf v. May 2018
Perfect location, awesome house
Tina L. Apr 2018
Besides needing a little bit of an update, the house was clean, with beautiful views, and a great layout. Really enjoyed our stay!
April P. Mar 2018
The view is absolutely breathtaking. The drive is heavenly. The home was very spacious and accommodated our group of 6. Would definitely stay here again. If there was one thing I had to critique it would only be that we wished the pool was heated. It was disappointing that such a beautiful pool could not be used on this trip. However, the hot tub was lovely and we still were able to take in all the beauty these views had to offer.

We've just returned from an outstanding stay at Rancho Notso Grande. The home was very comfortable for 4 adults and 4 kids ages 6-8. The home is very well-appointed with everything in perfect working order. Views from the property are spectacular and we loved the secluded feel in area. Excellent service provided by property manager as well. Would absolutely rent this home again the next time we stay in Paso Robles area.
Alexander R. Jan 2018
Really enjoyed our time at this house. Clean and comfortable and the views from the porch/pool are amazing. The kitchen is well stocked and fun to cook in.
Bryan W. Jan 2018
We spent a week here in January 2018 with our two kids, and we loved it. It is so comfortable and relaxing, and so well-equipped, that we wound up spending more time just relaxing in the house than we planned. The house has everything you can think of! The views are spectacular, and we really enjoyed the spa overlooking the valley, cooking in the fabulous kitchen, and all the nearby vineyards for wine-tasting. We are already planning to come back soon!
Caroline P. Sep 2017
We loved our weekend at this beautiful home. Some highlights were:
great views and location - infinity pool is spectacular
well stocked and highly usable kitchen
nice extra touches, like the bottle of wine when we arrived
entertainment system was a plus
pool table was lots of fun
comfortable beds/bedding; nice plush robes/towels
great house for up to three couples - it's big but only 3 bedrooms
don't make dinner reservtions - once you are back home you'll want to stay in! Plan to cook meals in this fantastic kitchen!
Can't wait to come back!
