A Great House in a Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a month in the winter for 3 years now in this great spot. SLO feels like our home away from home.

The house meets our changing needs. Sometimes it is just the two of us. We have hosted friends from home,

our children and grandchildren, as well as a girl friend weekend for college friends. The house is spacious, well maintained and has everything we need. The location couldn't be better. Leslie and Gregg are fantastic property managers, as well as neighbors. Where to go to workout, the best tacos on the coast, where to get a good haircut-- all you have to do is ask. The weather in the winter is fantastic for hiking and biking most days. The library, post office, movies, shops and so many places to eat are all a short walk. We have rented a number of places in varying locations and this is our hands down favorite.

Great Place to Stay in Downtown SLO

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed in this home two years in a row. It has served as a wonderful escape from the cold winters of the Midwest! The central location, in downtown SLO, means there is easy access for exploring the town. There are many great sights within walking distance of the home: the Mission, the art museum, bubblegum alley, etc! Not to mention many great restaurants, breweries and shops. Plus SLO is an the perfect base for exploring the rest of the Central Coast: beaches, hiking, wineries, Hearst Castle, etc. I prefer SLO to the beach communities because the weather is warmer and it is less foggy, always a plus!

The home itself has everything we needed and is very well kept. I'm very picky about things being clean and I had no complaints with either stay! There's a cozy fireplace in the living room and a dining room table for everyone to gather around in the evenings. Just perfect!

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

When my husband was transferred to San Luis Obispo County with short notice, we needed to find a furnished place that would allow us to stay for an undetermined amount of time. Leslie was extremely flexible and welcoming. We ended up staying for two months and ten days while we searched for and closed on a home in the area. We have lived in many furnished, temporary places over the years and this one was extremely well stocked with anything you might need. I even prepared a Thanksgiving dinner for seven during our stay. The house had plenty of room for our five family members who came in for the holiday weekend. We felt very much at home there and were sorry to leave such a great location. I was able to walk to the post office and Fedex store which made running errands for the house closing a breeze. We especially enjoyed waking up and walking to the many restaurants for breakfast to kick start our weekend days. Another favorite perk was being able to walk to the hiking trail that takes you to the top of the beautiful hill known as Madonna. Such a great way to spend a morning! I highly recommend this rental home for anyone wanting to spend time in the Central Coast of California.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property primarily because our daughter was getting married at the Mission. The location could not have been more perfect for the wedding (right around the corner) and is walking distance to all the activities to downtown SLO. The weather was uncommonly warm that weekend and the owners were kind enough to bring fans in to cool down the home. It has a wonderful backyard and plenty of parking and we felt quite at home here. The property is well maintained and clean. The owners are very accommodating and a pleasure to rent from. I would highly recommend renting this property if you want a home away from home in the SLO area.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week at this house for my daughter's wedding. We hardly drove, other than going to the wedding venue in Santa Margarita. It was walking distance to the rehearsal dinner, the welcome gathering at MoTav, restaurants for breakfast, coffee shops, hamburger places, and frozen yogurt shops. The location is what really made it, but the house was great. It was much bigger than it appeared in the pictures. Finding sockets for hairdryers and straighteners was a little tricky but it all worked out. We would definitely stay there again. Leslie, the owner, was very thoughtful even placing battery operated candles on the doorstep one night when there was a massive power outage, and she was very swift in returning our security deposit. Thank you for sharing your house with us. We couldn't be happier that we chose your house!

In San Luis Obispo you'll discover a unique mix of food, wine, recreation, art and culture - not to mention the venerable Hearst Castle - all set amidst warm, friendly and laidback surroundings.

Located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo is the heart of California's Central Coast where you can spend your day exploring miles of white, sandy beaches, browsing through unique stores and museums, and wine tasting. There is hiking or bicycling in and around the rolling hills - the choices are endless.

The local food and over 200 wineries are just two reasons for the many excellent restaurants in the county. The house is walking distance to dozens of restaurants and many nightclubs that offer first class local and visiting live entertainment.

Outdoor options also abound, including wonderful hiking, biking and surfing. Whale watching, sport fishing and charter fishing out of Morro Bay or Port San Luis are rewarding ways to spend a day. Eco tours supply pleasure and education about some of America's most distinctive ecological niches such as the Morro Bay National Estuary and the Carrizo Plain.

The arts flourish throughout the county at an exceptional level of quality. The Spanish mission of Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa is one half block from the house.
