This house and gardens are so beautifully preserved and the rooms and furnishings so accessible that they bring the Dallidet Family to life. The adobe and lovely gardens are hidden in a corner of town and are a delightful surprise to visitors and locals alike....More

Not terribly large and only open on Fridays and Sundays, this is a beautiful garden and small original Adobe house. Friendly and informative docents. They had noon talk in the garden the day I visited about drought-tolerant plants.

Who knew? I have lived on the Central Coast for years and never knew this was here! It's fun to discover a treasure in your own backyard. Our family visited one Friday afternoon and enjoyed the tranquil charm of the place. The gardens and landscaping...More

Wander through the gates of the old adobe and you'll feel as though you've stepped back into early California. The adobe is in great, nearly original condition (looks like they just got a new shingled roof), and the gardens surrounding the adobe are charming, bountiful,...More
