About Marcia

I have traveled the world but couldn't resist the lure of this Shangra La on the beautiful Central Coast and returned to start a local business and share the good life with my family, friends and fellow travelers! You will love it here too!

Marcia purchased this house in 2003

Why Marcia chose San Luis Obispo

Charming, cheerful and loving environment. You will feel right at home and enjoy the convenience of not needing a car if you use the train, but can always rent one for those longer jaunts to the Hearst Castle, wine tasting and beaches. There is street and driveway parking too.

A delightful park is a few blocks away and weekly Farmers Market is walking distance too. French Hospital is less than a mile.

What makes this house unique

There is a BBQ, fire pit, fountain.The kitchen is well equipped but, very easy access to great restaurants (Cafe Roma, Sally Loos, Gus's, Thai) are only one block away. It is six blocks to downtown and all it has to offer: movie theaters, bars, Barnes & Noble, art, Mission Tolosa & the creek. The city bus stop is 1/2 block. It will take you to City Hall and connections to Cal Poly, Cuesta and other sites. The key here is Convenience and calling this happy colorful respite 'yours' so you can share in the SLO life!

Amazing home near Downtown SLO! We will stay no place else!! =)

  • 5 of 5
This is now my second time staying at Marcia's incredible 2 bedroom 2 bath home near the train station in San Luis Obispo. My wife and I and our group of close friends will never ever stay anywhere else when we visit the Central Coast! The house is cute, well decorated, updated, perfectly located, and incredibly comfortable. It is such a perfect location, easily walkable to downtown SLO.

This is the perfect place for ANY group of people to stay in SLO. I LOVE this house! Marcia is the sweetest VRBO owner I've ever met. The first time my wife and I stayed at this cottage, we were not yet married, but we had told Marcia our wedding was just a few months away. Well, I came back to stay here with a few friends from work, and in addition to giving us a complimentary bottle of local wine, Marcia also had a special congratulations card and bottle of champagne for me to take home and enjoy with my wife! So sweet! We love her and her place and can't wait to stay here again!

We had a wonderful time at this downtown historical cottage in San Luis Obispo. The owner takes care of every detail with a friendly smile. The courtyard is lovely, as is the front porch and the beds are extremely comfortable. We highly recommend it and will be back.

Just like home!

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage by the train. The amenities abound and Marcia's thoughtfulness made our visit seem like we were home. Location in SLO is excellent with so much to see and do just a short walk away. We always look forward to our next stay at the cottage by the train!

Charming cottage indeed!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I met college friends of 50 years in SLO, half way distance for us both. We loved the cottage and mostly the fact we could park the car and walk to downtown. My friend who is an interior decorator was impressed with the decor of the cottage. Everything was provided, just needed to shop for food. The owner was very helpful getting us settled. We hope to meet there again!

Perfect getaway in ideal SLO location

  • 5 of 5
Marcia was great and made us feel welcome. gave great recommendations. Her home was perfect. Kitchen has everything you need to make a great dinner. the babbling pond outside with the BBQ and seating area made for a perfect evening hang-out location. nice wine bar nearby to walk to, and directly next to the train station for easy arrival (we didnt hear any of the passing trains, but some people may) DEFINITELY WORTH A VISIT!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Andrew, for taking the time to write. I'm glad you mentioned the wine bar. I need to remind guests that it is close by too.
Please come back soon for some golf and hiking--a great way to work up an appetite and thirst!

Perfect San Luis Obispo House for the Holiday Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I drove up for the Thanksgiving weekend and wanted to stay in a cute & cozy house where we could have a relaxing time. This beautiful getaway was just what we needed! The place itself is adorable inside & out and had all the amenities including a full kitchen and a washer/dryer: both of which came in handy after the wine tasting.

Marcia was an amazing host. She made sure we knew where to go to grab a bite to eat, catch a movie in town, go on a hike, and all were within walking distance. The whole weekend was just what we needed to recharge our batteries. We'll be back, and next time, might even take the train!

Owner's Response: Many thanks, Brad & Patty. I hope you will stay at my home again this Thanksgiving when your niece is baptized at the Mission. I have a new hike for you--you'll love it. A terrific photo op!!
Enjoy the rest of your summer.
