Shanagolden is named after a little town in Limerick, Ireland that is said to be a place of great peace and tranquility.

Our lovely, rustic two-story home is situated off Highway 46 West in the heart of California's Central Coast Wine Country, on one hundred private acres of an oak tree covered canyon. Like its namesake, it is a magical place of serenity and peace. The spacious courtyard and sundeck provide a spectacular view of soaring hawks above the surrounding hills and canyon.

The house is a charming combination of antique and modern furnishings and sleeps eight comfortably. We have two queen size beds, four twin beds and an additional queen size futon in the upstairs sitting room. All linens and blankets are provided.

Our self catering kitchen is equipped with plates, utensils and cookware. Eggs, bacon, bread and cereal are provided for you to cook and enjoy at your leisure.

The downstairs living room has a cozy wood stove and the upstairs sitting room has a record player and a nostalgic collection of old L.P's from Jazz to Rock and Roll, folk and classical. There is a DVD and VCR player with a large selection of movies. (No T.V. and no internet.)

We are twelve miles from the coastal beaches of Cambria, Cayucos and Morro Bay and just minutes away from many local wineries. Wooded walking along the creek offer quiet times for relaxation and meditation.
