QUIET COMFORT IN POPULAR RAILROAD DISTRICT & 4 BLOCKS FROM DOWNTOWN

San Luis Obispo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Compact Home Away From Home

Recently rated America's friendliest city, San Luis Obispo is a small historic town nestled between world-class wineries and the Pacific Ocean. Four blocks from this unit, the downtown area features a well-known Farmers Market and walk-streets.

There are terrific trails for hiking and mountain biking amidst a beautiful agricultural area -- with all the benefits of being in the heart of town.

The apartment is equipped with a full bath and kitchen (dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, microwave) for complete flexibility close to town. You can park your car and walk during your entire stay, or come by train with the Amtrak station just 2 blocks away.

Your vacation apartment is part of a duplex located behind a historic home; it features a small balcony. There is a queen bed in the bedroom, a living room, dining area and fully-equipped kitchen.

This unit is on the 2nd story, so stairs are required to access the unit.

The building is shaded by mature palm trees in the back and a majestic oak in the front. We are also situated on a small creek. Our winter rains have filled the creek, providing the soundtrack of a babbling brook.

The full kitchen allows you to prepare and store food if you don't want to eat out every meal.

There are two similarly-size units located across the landing from each other. If you have extended family or a larger party, you can rent both concurrently, depending on availability.

We bought this property with the idea that we would like to retire in downtown SLO some day. The location of this property would allow us to zoom around in a battery-powered golf cart for all of our visiting, shopping and entertainment. We love dogs (and most other animals except gophers), hiking, motorcycling and we volunteer with the local search and rescue team. The picture of was taken the week before our wedding at the San Diego Zoo, behind the scenes with two Beluga whales; Fernando had SUCH a personality.

Mary McNally & Bill Bartlett purchased this apartment in 2012

The vacation rentals are both 560-sq. ft., one-bedroom apartments. We have recently remodeled the kitchens and furnished and decorated the entire space. We tried to anticipate your every need, providing all the necessities.

We are in the historic Railroad District, two blocks from Railroad Square. We are minutes away from Cal Poly and the Performing Arts Center, a short walk to downtown SLO, and close to wonderful hiking trails. This is a good place for you if you want a place to hang your hat, feel comfortable, cook for yourself, and get out to enjoy the natural beauty and inviting culture here.

No car is necessary unless you want to explore outside of town. A car does help to get to the beaches or for a cruise up Pacific Coast Highway. There are ten restaurants and delicatessens within a couple of blocks and many more with a quick walk to town.

San Luis Obispo features almost 200 wineries. We are eight miles to Avila Beach and Sycamore Mineral Hot Springs; twelve miles to Pismo Beach, Morro Bay, and Montana de Oro State Park -- there are countless places to visit. Drive north up California's beautiful Pacific Coast Highway to Hearst Castle and the elephant seal viewing area; or drive another 60 miles up the PCH to breathtaking Big Sur. Santa Barbara is 1 1/2 hours south. There are great golf courses nearby and hiking trails galore!

This apartment is in a great location- walking distance to town and located in the Railroad District which has good restaurants, coffee shops, and activities. It feels like a very safe neighborhood. The apartment is well equipped with everything I needed. The bed and furniture are comfortable and well taken care of. Mary and Bill are so friendly and were very responsive and helpful with any questions or help that I needed. Wonderful people!

The apartment is comfortable, cozy & clean. We enjoyed being able to walk to downtown. Mitchell park is down the street which was perfect for our toddler. The apartment had the amenities important for a family traveling with a toddler: a bath tub & washer/dryer. The apartment is tucked in the rear near the creek and it was quiet.

I know many hotels / rental housing try to sell themselves more than what they really are, but this rental is everything you think it is. And in a good way too! Bill and Mary were more than accommodating, and when they found out we were about to go to Avila Beach, he lent us two beach chairs for us to use.
The property is very clean and well kept.
I will definitely stay here again when I am up in the area

My husband and I took a trip to SLO before the arrival of our daughter... one last trip before she came early! The owners were very quick to respond to questions and were very friendly. The condo is located upstairs and in the railroad district. We walked to downtown everyday which was only about 15 minutes. The apartment has everything you would need for a getaway and was very clean. Easy to find lots of parking too. Next door is a youth hostel and I was a tiny bit concerned about what that might mean, however the it was very quite and we only experienced friendly faces coming and going from there. I can't wait to go back and bring the baby this time!
