- Lodging for two nights in each of our four private Casitas with private decks, kiva fireplaces and the most comfortable beds on the Central Coast of California!
- Gourmet breakfast for all four couples in the morning featuring Chef Tony’s famous soufflés, crepes or French toast, fresh local fruit and all the trimmings
- Second afternoon, you are picked up by Breakaway Tours, for an Edna Valley Insider’s Wine Tour including a gourmet picnic lunch then returned to the Casitas for a relaxing dip in the 25 meter lap pool.
- Or if preferred, eight bikes will be here and ready for you to see our wine region and take in the fresh air ( a gourmet lunch will be waiting for you along the way, dependent on your desired route).

Bike Through Wine Country
Have you ever been somewhere so nice you just wanted to ditch the car and go for a bike ride? Well, that's the way many of our guests feel when they arrive at The Casitas. The rolling hills, farm land and vineyards of the Arroyo Grande and Edna Valleys make for perfect bike riding. Or do you want to do something different, like riding along the ocean? Well, now we make it easy for you to do that as well.
The Casitas has teamed up with a local vendor to make bike riding easy and fun during your stay with us. A bike, helmet and bike lock will be delivered to you here at The Casitas or somewhere in the local area (depending where you want to ride). Both Fuji mountain bikes and Schwinn beach cruisers are available for your day of fun. Rentals are available in 4, 7, 24 and 48 hour increments. The best part is the bikes will be picked up when you are finished, all you have to do is supply the locomotion!
- 4 hour rate - $50
- 7 hour rate - $75
- 24 hour rate - $95
- 48 hour rate - $145
Rates are per person. Please mention your interest in biking when booking so your bike(s) can be reserved for you!
We are now happy to announce our ability to offer a special evening right here at the Casitas! No need to drive—you can enjoy your wine in the heart of the Central Coast Edna Valley region right here. With a minimum one week advance notice, we will schedule the services of Certified Executive Chef and caterer extraordinaire, Rochelle Harringer. Rochelle formerly owned and operated Inn Paradiso in Paso Robles and was the Executive Food Director of the Santa Monica Beach Club. With more than 25 years of experience, Rochelle has catered weddings here and now partners with us to offer special dinners, customized for you. Using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible, Rochelle can pair wines you bring for the occasion or have picked up locally during your stay.
Many of our guests hate leaving their Casitas once they arrive, with the serenity and natural beauty, as well as the comfort and coziness of their own private cottage. And small dinner parties are also available as well.
Sample courses prepared by Rochelle in the past, again based on seasonality and your tastes:
Smoked salmon Carpaccio, or
Fresh gazpacho, or
Hog Island Oysters on the half shell presented with three sauces
Watercress salad with pear, walnuts and Dijon vinaigrette with passion fruit, or
Salad of grilled spaghetti squash, wild California cactus pears and Cacique cheese with guava cilantro vinaigrette, or
Salad of endive and Fennel with caramelized spicy nuts, blue cheese and mango vinaigrette
Portobello mushroom roasted and stuffed with caramelized yam, shallots, spinach and broccoli rabbi in a moonshine cream sauce, or
Roasted tenderloin of beef with roasted fingerling potatoes and green peppercorn sauce, or
Wild king salmon with asparagus and balsamic reduction
Vanilla bean panna cotta with a rhubarb and stone fruit compote, or
Chocolate mousse cake with berry coulis and fresh berries, or
English triffle with crème anglaise and raspberry coulis
Cost: $125 per person
Contact Tony to confirm availability and coordinate the menu decision making with Rochelle at least one week prior to your stay.
Consider treating that special someone to this additional gastronomic event the next time you visit The Casitas of Arroyo Grande!
