ENCHANTING DOWNTOWN GEM WITH WARM MEDITERRANEAN COURTYARD

San Luis Obispo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Nestled in one of the nicest neighborhoods in San Luis Obispo, this recently remodeled 2 bedroom/ 1 bath house rests between SLO’s Hip Railroad Square and the historic downtown.

The property sleeps 4 comfortably. Both bedrooms are sunny and furnished with beautiful golden birds-eye-maple. Bed linens are 100% cotton and sheets are line-dried (weather permitting).The lovely queen sleeps two and the second bedroom (which sleeps 2-3) has a double sleigh bed and twin.

Shower or soak in a retro tub complete with original pink tile. Lavender bath crystals provided. Afterwords bundle up in a cotton terrycloth robe. A comfortable bench for toweling dry doubles as a changing table for the little ones.

Living room has a variety of English and Spanish books for adults and a great bilingual library for kids! A mixture of classic English and Spanish Videos and DVDs make up the eclectic movie library. Many for children also.

A separate desk area (lit nicely during the day by a skylight) has multiple outlets for your various technological gadgets to charge and makes for a nice study should you need to bring any work along during your stay.

The kitchen has a French farmhouse feel. Gourmet cooks will appreciate the large, vintage gas range and French style hood with adjustable lighting and venting. The open floor plan allows you to socialize easily with your guests in the living room or the dining nook with views out to the Mediterranean-inspired courtyard. Fresh herbs are easily accessible and elderberries (mint too) for fresh tea. The pantry is usually stocked with staples such as flour. sugar, olive oil and vinegar, salt, pepper, spices and coffee.

About The Owner

I am an avid world traveler which is my passion. When not traveling, I enjoy the 'SLO' life and spend my time with hobbies like cooking, designing, and hiking the surrounding hills. I am happy to be of assistance if needed and/or be your concierge.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose San Luis Obispo

I chose this home because of its sunny rooms and ideal location to walking downtown and nearby outdoor activities and beaches. I love being able to look out and see San Luis Mtn. from the front porch swing. The weather is almost always perfect and there is always something fun to do in this area.

What makes this house unique

All within walking distance, there are great restaurants, tapas and coffee bars, boutiques, Farmers' Market (Thursdays), summer concerts in Mission Plaza and movie houses (The Palm Theater shows foreign films!). But if you venture out a little further, we have incredible day trips such as: Morro Bay for whale watching and other sea life, Big Sur for world class vistas, Avila Beach for surfing and swimming and sunbathing. Even Santa Barbara is just only an hour and a half away! But the best part of this house is coming back from a great outing and relaxing with friends or family in the cheerful, cozy atmosphere, or waking to the sound of the Mission chimes downtown.

Charming

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I stayed here for two weeks this summer and I could not have been happier with this rental. The neighborhood is beautiful, the house is as clean and charming as it looks in the pictures and the owner was thoughtful and helpful. The location is walking distance to downtown SLO and an easy drive to lots of fun, nearby activities. We can't wait to come back and enjoy more time on that front porch swing and in the beautiful courtyard!

Perfect base to explore the area

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 20 months old son and I had a wonderful long weekend at Jamie's beautiful home. The abundant light, clean and cozy home and friendly host made for a wonderful getaway from the Bay Area. Jamie had a number of local suggestions for restaurants, beaches to visit, activities to do, etc based on our interests. The comfy large sofa was perfect to read the many travel magazines in the living room or just to lounge around with the many books available. Our toddler loved the small toys he could play with and had plenty of space to run around - including an covered outdoor area! We enjoyed having our breakfast in the well decorated kitchen before heading out on fantastic hikes and beach time, knowing we were coming "home" to our comfortable beds and cottage.
Thank you, Jamie!

Perfect getaway for relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful, warm and charming home to stay in SLO. My son and I got away for a few from our busy routine. The place is very cute and located in walking distance to downtown. The owner, Jamie was very thoughtful and helpful with names of awesome restaurants and the many outdoor activities there are to do. I will definitely be staying here again!

Lovely home in town

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for my son's graduation from Cal Poly and we were the envy of all his friends' families! We arrived in the afternoon and found freshly made lemonade in the refrigerator. The home is well-stocked and comfortable. It is conveniently located and we were able to walk into town to eat dinner, have coffee and enjoy Thursday Night Market. I enjoyed getting to know the owner. She was easy to work with and answered all of our questions about our visit in the San Luis Obispo area. I would definitely stay here again. I am only disappointed that we found it as my son was graduating and not sooner.

Great location, perfect for small family!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 2 nights at Jamie's house and it was perfect for our family of four. The house was in a great location, just a few minutes walk to downtown, and was very comfortable and well decorated. Jamie was very helpful with our booking and went out of her way to make us welcome, even bringing us games and movies for our kids. We would definitely stay here again next time we're in SLO!

Perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time we have stayed at this house and it was equally satisfying. We love how comfortable the house is and the location just can't be beaten! The owner is so thoughtful in the little touches, such as chocolates by the bed and fruit from the backyard in the kitchen. We will definitely be staying here again!
