About Marti Brand

25 years ago I drove through San Luis Obispo on my way to residency from Seattle to southern California I thought it was the most unspoiled beautiful place I had ever seen. Fortunately I was able to move here and can share it with you now.The weather is as perfect as the people are friendly.There is no smog or traffic.Come and enjoy California as it used to be 50 years ago.

Marti Brand purchased this house in 2013

Why Marti Brand chose San Luis Obispo

8 blocks to downtown SLO but very quiet.A large backyard with a protected oak and fenced in yard.Perfect for outdoor dining and dogs!

What makes this house unique

A historic nicely restored craftsman home with unique touches,a claw foot tub,a front porch to sit on and meet the local folks.It is the SLO life.

Best Vacation Home Ever!

  • 5 of 5
We loved, loved, loved staying in this home! The homeowner is wonderful and left a couple of small fun toys for our kids (ages 8 and 11) to play with, and she was very helpful before AND after our stay! Wonderful woman!

The most important things for me with staying somewhere is cleanliness and safety. This place was perfectly clean in every way (even with pets occasionally staying here, which I'm allergic to and had no problems with!)! And the neighborhood and house it's self felt perfectly safe as well!

The house was easy to find and was close enough to everything you'd need to go to, without being on a busy street. And the person that lives full time in the back part of the property was kind and kept to themselves so you never felt like you were in their way or them in yours.

I would definitely stay here again if/when we visit SLO!

Owner's Response: Yay! Thank you so much and I have just as many nice things to say about how you all kept our home in good shape. We take a lot of precautions regarding dogs, and making sure that after a visit we disinfect, and wax floors etc. to ensure only happy vibes are left in the home.

Delightful Home in SLO!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent three weeks in this home. Everyone knows San Luis Obispo is awesome, but add this charming home and you will be sure to have a wonderful time on the Central Coast. Marti, the owner, made us feel welcome from the day we arrived until the day we left. She quickly replies to any needs, questions, etc., and is very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The house, very cozy and comfortable, met all of our needs. The location was great, being walking distance to downtown, a nearby park, trailheads, etc., and a short driving distance to beaches, vineyards, and other attractions. Lola, our dog, joined us and she felt as welcome as we did. We hope to stay here again, and again, during future trips to SLO!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much. We equally had a great time having you. We loved Lola (Scout and I did) and so glad you got to be friends with the puppy next door.
I like the advice you gave us and we are trying to find the right unit.
Please know you all are very much welcomed back and Lola will have someone to go to the beach with next time with our sure to be bigger Scout!

Charming

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for two months. This home is adorable and very clean. It is just far enough from downtown to avoid traffic but close enough to easily walk to coffee, farmers market and many great restaurants. Marti, the owner, was very helpful and kind.

Comfortable, conveniently located

  • 4 of 5
This is an older home, with some floor squeakiness and a couple doors that don't close right, but not a big deal. There are two small bedrooms, one located off the living room, the other off the kitchen. They are connected by a shared bathroom. The bathroom can only be accessed via the bedrooms. The kitchen is a bit cramped and distinctly lacking in counter space. The appliances are newer and work well, but there is no dishwasher or garbage disposal. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking/eating gear. There is a back porch with a washer/dryer. This is shared with the renter of a small cottage located in the backyard. The living room has a small dining table, a comfortable couch and a 32 inch TV (Direct
TV basic service). There is high-speed internet and Wi-Fi. There is driveway parking for one car. The house was clean, good water pressure and hot water. The owner, Marti, is very friendly and eager to help with any issues. We noted a problem with some windows not locking, and she had it fixed right away. The house is located about a 10 minute walk from downtown San Luis Obispo. There is a sandwich shop and small grocery within a few minutes walk. Overall I would recommend this property for a couple, or a family with 1 or 2 small children. Two couples might be cramped, unless you are only sleeping there.
If you are into hiking, I would suggest Cerro San Luis (trailhead walking distance from house) or Bishop's Peak. For bicycling, a good ride is on Orcutt Rd to Lopez Lake - 35 miles round trip, mostly flat with plenty of pretty wine country (and winery tasting rooms along the way).

Experiencing the SLO life

  • 5 of 5
We traveled to SLO to tour Cal Poly and make our way up to the bay area for Thanksgiving. What a perfect fit for us. Three words come to mind: comfortable, convenient and thoughtful. Our 18 year old son had his own spacem yet the cottage is cozy and inviting. We rode bikes into town for groceries, delicious meals and generally exploring the environs. I am eagerly booking this sweet space again for a working trip in March. I love the flexibility of eating in and savoring a tasty meal in the sunny backyard, or a cup of tea on the front porch. This beats hotels, motels and resorts in almost every way.

Owner's Response: Thank you Bonnie! We can't wait to have you back in SLO. I think this time you will be here for the wonderful Farmer's Market on Thursday night.
See you soon! Marti
