Built to Bring People Together. Designed to Stand Apart.

Trilogy® at Monarch Dunes offers new homes in the heart of California’s Central Coast wine country. Located south of San Luis Obispo, and just 15 minutes from Pismo Beach off historic Highway 1, Trilogy is the perfect setting for your life’s next chapter. In fact, the location is so perfect that San Luis Obispo was named by Oprah as “America’s Happiest Place to Live,” and by CNN Money as one of the 25 Best Places to Retire. This thriving coastal community is nestled amongst dramatic vineyards and beaches—as if the varied geography itself were specifically designed for a world of possibility. It goes without saying that the air is fresher here. But that only partially explains why you’ll find yourself breathing easier.

Expect to indulge. Like you mean it.

Here, you’ll find a forward-thinking environment that spoils you, where all the indulgences you’d expect are completely unexpected. And it’s easy for you to do what makes you the happiest, whatever that may be. You can sit back and enjoy. But most people here aren’t sitting down at all. There’s just too much to discover.

The Trilogy® Difference.

Trilogy® is designed differently inside and out. Our goal is to create a unique environment that honors you, inspires you, kicks monotony in the pants and, yes, even changes your life. It starts with a belief that the source of vibrant living is health. And because we build homes that also build community, life here is about connecting - as much with the people you love as the new passions you discover, and with new neighbors who share this rejuvenating time of life. The Trilogy difference is why we attract fascinating people with a zest for living who are drawn to all that life has to offer. At Trilogy Monarch Dunes, it’s not hard to see why.
