It Never Rains In Southern California

First of our annual 4 rainy days in San Diego came yesterday and we learned all sorts of fun things about the new house - one of which is, as there are zero gutters, the rain just cascades directly off the angled roof on to our patio, and patio furniture, and things left on the patio because it never rains. Looking for a minimalist, easy DIY gutter solution. Pic and slightly more info inside.

Visited HomeDepot/Lowes online and all of their gutters are these massive things that, in addition to looking unsightly on our one level home and a bit outside of my DIY skills, are serious overkill for the tiny amount of rain we get.
Here is the patio roof area
On my run this morning I checked out all of my neighbors houses, about 20% have a gutter system, the rest just let it fall. So clearly people are surviving. I just need to direct rain away from my patio, the rest of the splash area is livable for now. Is my only solution installing a big gutter over the patio side of the house?
