“Cielo Review: Photos can not even capture the charm of this Inn.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

I recently spent three very restful days in the Cielo Casita while recovering from surgery. Words can't express the enchantment of this lovely captivating Inn. If you are looking for serenity, treat yourself to a stay in the Cielo Casita (bungalow.) The view is fabulous. Cielo provides uttermost in privacy with all the comforts of home. There is a gas fireplace in the living room as well as a sofa, refrigerator and large screen TV. Not to mention the most comfortable bed you will ever sleep in.

Outside there is a large furnished patio for relaxing, dining or just enjoying the view. Breakfast is provided each morning and if weather permits, I recommend dining on the patio. What more can you ask for?

You may be lucky enough to see the little rabbit and resident cat exploring the gardens and you will be tempted to steal their adorable little dog Kona.

The Innkeepers are welcoming and both of them go out of their way to be helpful. The only thing that could have perhaps made my stay more pleasant is George Clooney.

I can't wait to return to this charming Inn for another sojourn. If you want to escape the stress of your job THIS IS THE PLACE.

Room Tip: Cielo Casita is the largest, most secluded and provides the best view. Pay a little extra for the so...

A fabulous, upscale B & B. We were looking for a place to celebrate our wedding anniversary and had heard great things about the Casitas from friends. It exceeded our high expectations in every way. The room was spacious but felt surprisingly cozy, with its fireplace and lovely furnishings. A great bed, with sheets that were so soft that we immediately ordered some from Pat and Tony. We were enveloped by the serenity. A breakfast was brought to our room, made with special care by Tony. Pat and Tony are charming hosts who will give you as much space as you need and as much help as you want. They have the most irresistible dog, Kona, who makes it even harder to leave. It was a truly memorable anniversary and we look forward to returning.

Room Tip: We recommend Mariposa, a large room with a gorgeous view

We are reluctant to submit this since everyone will want to stay here but we must share how terrific The Casitas are. Tony and Pat are gracious and incredibly hardworking hosts. The service and food are fantastic. The location is also very scenic and convenient to SLO and Arroyo Grande. We will be returning! (If we can get a reservation!)

Room Tip: I refuse to say since everyone will then book our favorite Casita! All the Casitas are great.

I cannot give enough praise to Pat & Tony for what they've done with this B&B. From the moment my girlfriend and I walked in the door, we felt warm and welcome. After an exhausting day of wine-tasting and feasting (ha!), it was icing on the cake to be able to settle into such an amazing room. We stayed in the Sarchi room, which I believe is at the bottom of the price scale, so I can't even imagine what the other rooms are like. The wood-burning fireplace, bed that envelopes you in a warm embrace and beautiful Spanish-tiled bathroom were just a few things that tickled our fancy. Oh, and did I mention the coffee and delicious french toast awaiting us on our porch with a beautiful view when we woke? Also, the BACON. Oh, the bacon. I'm gushing now, but one last thing... Their adorable dog, Kona, just sealed the deal for me. What a sweetheart!

Visited for 1 night and we wished we'd stayed longer. Everything about this place was amazing, from the ultra comfortable bed and real wood fireplace to the amazing breakfast served on your own terrace overlooking the stunning scenery. Room was a little noisy through the night with the heater on, but overall great experience and definitely will go back!

Pat & Toni are wonderful hosts! The gormet breakfast was delicious & brought to your room! What luxury!! The setting is quiet with beautiful views. The individual houses make for a special stay. The fireplace added to the atmosphere. We were there in the off-season & felt the rate to be an outstanding value for all the luxury and beauty this B & B offers. We would highly recommend anyone to stay here to experience a special treat. We will return when we are next in this area of the country!

We stayed here en route to Las Vegas, just for one night, but how we wished we had more time to spare to stay longer and enjoy more fully the generous hospitality of Tony and Pat, as well as wallow in the gorgeous casita!
We arrived later than planned, and Tony recommended a little Italian restaurant down in the village - we enjoyed casual, tasty fresh food. We slept like royalty in an amazingly, comfortable bed and woke to birdsong, refreshed and relaxed.
We chose to breakfast outside on our terrace and were lucky enough to sample (and devour) Tony's Delicious savory souffle, accompanied by fresh strawberries, freshly baked scones, fresh juice and coffee - absolute delicious and very generous!
Pat and Tony were so welcoming - we have promised ourselves to return and spend more time exploring the surrounding area.
