In Spanish, our city name - El Paso de Robles - means Pass of the Oaks, a tribute to the majestic oaks and rolling hills that captivated our pioneers. 


Today these oaks are joined by vineyards, olive orchards,  farms and ranches that inspire our local cuisine and culture. 


Paso Robles (population 30,000) is 25 miles inland from the central California coast, on Highway 101 halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, in northern San Luis Obispo County.  The warm summers and moderate winters are influenced by the ocean. 


Paso Robles has a picturesque downtown square, hot springs, art studios, fine restaurants, horse ranches, wineries, bike trails and much more. 







Located between Monterey and Santa Barbara counties along the Central Coast of California, San Luis Obispo County (population 270,000) is more rural and agricultural than other coastal regions. 


Its small communities are scattered along the beaches, coastal hills and mountains of the Santa Lucia range. It is home to Cal Poly University and Cuesta Community College.  Education, tourism and agriculture are the mainstays of its economy.


Its cities include San Simeon (Hearst Castle), Cambria, Cayucos, Morro Bay, Los Osos, Avila Beach, Pismo Beach, Shell Beach, Oceano, Arroyo Grande, Nipomo, Santa Margarita, Atascadero, Templeton, Paso Robles, Creston, Shandon and San Miguel.

OUR PEOPLE

Cohousing Community

~ Creating an old-fashioned neighborhood in a new way ~  


 We are a group of families, couples, and singles who have created a 36-home  cohousing neighborhood in Paso Robles on the Central Coast of California.  Construction started in 2003;  the majority of us moved in during 2004. 


Our residents have ranged in age from 2 to 88.  We are diverse - artists, educators, business people, coaches,  engineers and mathematicians, health care professionals, finance experts, etc.  

 

We welcome you to our website and Facebook pages.  If you have questions, want to know if units are for sale/rent, would like to visit our community or wish to know more about our area, click here.


 

Our 14-acre site is located in the southeast of Paso Robles, but it feels like the country.  You can wander the property and not realize you are in town - yet shopping, public transportation, schools and parks are within a short walk.  Across the street is a hillside of oaks and more than 20 acres of natural open space.


We have 10 acres of woodlands with about 1,200 native blue oaks, sweeping sunset views over distant rolling hills and a flowing* creek - complete with frogs and cattails.


*The creek flows mainly in winter/spring, depending on rainfall levels these months, but so far there is water in some parts of the creek year round.
