About Us



Our central coast vacation getaway is located halfway between Los Angeles and San Fransisco. Nestled in the Irish Hills, at the top of Prefumo and See Canyon, Prefumo Crest Inn is a unique destination. Situated on our 100 acre ranch, we offer wide open spaces and natural beauty. Panoramic views of rolling hills, northern coastline and the Santa Lucia Mountains provide a spectacular backdrop from all vantage points. 

Mountaintop sunrises start the day off right! Lounge around or get outside for a ride, walk or run. Guests have full privacy, but if you need directions or assistance, we're here for you. If you're not sure what you want to do for the day, let us know your interests and we'll recommend options. In the evening, we encourage guests to enjoy our amazing sunsets. If you like to BBQ, this is the time!
We are far enough from town to feel away from it all, and close enough to be in San Luis Obispo, Cal Poly or Avila Beach in 15-20 minutes. 



Our newly built vacation rental has 3 suites and a common room. The indoor spaces are open and airy, with high ceilings, plenty of natural light and endless views. All rooms have french doors overlooking a private covered patio. Each suite has it's own ensuite with a whirlpool tub and open-air shower. Rooms also have a king size memory foam bed, luxury linens, couch, fireplace, smart-tv, wi-fi and iPhone radio.

Our common room has a large sectional couch, 8 person dining table, full-sized refrigerator and spacious, well equipped, kitchenette. Although there's no stovetop (we're keeping it legal), the kitchenette is a fully functional food preparation and serving area. It has a sink with RO water, coffee and tea station, large electric griddle/grill (for bacon, eggs, pancakes, veggies), rice cooker, countertop convection oven/toaster, microwave, dishes and utensils. Locally roasted, organic coffee and tea is also provided. 

Open both sets of large slider doors for a seamless outdoor transition. Outside, the pergola covered picnic table overlooks Morro Bay, and the charcoal grill is ideal for get togethers with family and friends.
