Arani Salon and Day Spa

Arani Salon and Day Spa is breathing a breath of fresh air into the Village of Arroyo Grande as we witness a total Village Transformation over the past few years! Not your mother’s Beauty Parlor, this Salon and Spa was designed to be an oasis — and succeed! It is a sanctuary. Yes, all the…

Rooster Creek Tavern

Rooster Creek Tavern in Arroyo Grande

I have to admit that while I scrolled through some of the reviews for Rooster Creek, I found myself nodding my head in agreement… some were spot-on. I will say that the service left much to be desired in the beginning, however they seemed to have listened to the feedback and have made adjustments —…

Walrus Window Washing

Nothing sells a house like a spectacular view — and nothing distracts from that fantastic attribute than dingy windows. That’s why it is critical that a Realtor have in her arsenal of referral resources a skilled and professional window washer. Dwayne makes the windows literally disappear! Extremely detail-oriented, he attacks each job with gusto and…

The Taste of Pismo Beach 2013

My memory may be fading (I am turning 40 this year after all) but of the many Taste of Pismo events my hubby and I have attended I think this year was unequivocally the best. Maybe it was the great “Farm Fest” Farm to Fork event that ushered in the Taste the Friday night before.…

Sister Kitchen Thai Food in Grover Beach

There aren’t many restaurants that take a break during the holidays and go on holiday themselves… and there aren’t many restaurants that when they do take a break make my grown husband cry. It was so bad I even drove by during their break once to make sure they hadn’t returned early. This is what…

Justin Stearns – Mortgage Lender

Justin and I first had the opportunity to get to know one another while he was working with another company within our office in Pismo Beach. He started with what appeared to be no leads from his parent company and not only won over the realtors working all around him, but simultaneously went out and…

COACH in Pismo Beach

Be still my beating heart …. the Coach store finally arrived with great anticipation throughout my circle and has sprinkled handbags everywhere! This is truly the dawn of a new day on the Central Coast. Ok, ok, I grew up here so I have a little more history with the shopping void that existed just…
