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

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!

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.Bikes and kayaks available.

Our company sent 2 of our employees to stay here during a business trip. They found it very clean and comfortable. The owner is incredibly friendly and helpful. The location is really great.

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.
Owner's Response: Thank you very much. We enjoyed having you!

Comfortable, conveniently located

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

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

BEAUTIFULLY APPOINTED!

  • Submitted: Feb 18, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
We had a wonderful time visiting San Luis Obispo and this home away from home enhanced our stay. The home is well appointed and the owner has gone above and beyond to make a guests stay top notch! We visit the area often and will definitely return to this lodging treasure. Marti thought of everything from bicycles to navigation maps of local hiking trails to specialty soap. Another perk is that our sweet traveling companion ( our dog, Colt) was welcomed with open arms!
Owner's Response: We are always delighted to have someone stay in our craftsman home, and just very grateful for kind comments. You are welcome and hope to someday make it your way too.
Best Regards,
Marti
