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!

Adorable 5 Star Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
The home is truly a labor of love. Marcia, the owner, is a gifted hostess and decorator with deep roots to the area. She knows everything about SLO and will give you expert advice on the best places to check out. Definitely chat her up! Marcia has also spent a lifetime traveling but you'll see it's no surprise she makes SLO her home. The attention to detail and personalization are on par with any luxury hotel. We're already planning our next trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your five star compliments. It was such a joy having you here.
But, now you put it in writing, Katie, so, I am counting on you returning soon. I hope more of your family will join you--perhaps a "snowbird" vacation in February?
Best wishes, Marcia

Wonderful SLO Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing experience, we had a great time! Marcia's home near Train Station is truly a gem and has a wonderful floor plan. 2+ bedrooms, 1.75 bath and a great flow from the kitchen to the living room. I took my dad to SLO for his 80th birthday for a trip down memory lane. Marcia could not have been more welcoming and thoughtful...she even found a picture of my grandpa at the Train Station! (he was the engineer). My dad was blown away and it set the tone for a truly wonderful experience for both of us. Marcia is great to work with and I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in San Luis Obispo!

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend staying here if you are going to SLO. You can't beat the location. Short walk into town and close to the amtrak station. We were a group of five and it worked out perfect. Marcia was always available for us if we needed her and made us feel very welcome. She even brought us home made cookies! I will most certainly stay here again in my trips to SLO.

The Perfect Getaway Sanctuary, Yet Accessible to Everything in San Lius Obispo!

  • 5 of 5
What a gem of a place SLO Bed & Wine is.........................thanks to the atmosphere created by the inviting and comfortable environment (yet updated) that the owner Marcia has created!!! From the time you pull up to the curb the property is inviting and welcoming. You can instantly see the love and care Marcia has put into the property from the well maintainined home and the love and care that has been given to the gardens and outdoor living spaces. The location close to town is perfect for walking accessibility to the quaint restaurants and shops downtown, as well as the Thursday night Farmers Market (don't miss it!). Who better to give you advice on where to go and what to see than Marcia who has lived in the area for many years, is a docent at Hearst Castle and volunteers at the Mission in SLO? There is such a comfortable feeling of space in the indoor as well as outdoor spaces, so you never feel confined. Lovely to take your wine, coffee or tea ouside and enjoy the beautiful SLO weather! I cannot wait to return!

Owner's Response: Many, many thanks for the fantastic review, Diane! It was such a joy to share my love of San Luis Obispo with you. Please return soon---there are places you missed--an evening tour of the Hearst Castle, perhaps? You should see it at Christmas or when the gardens are in full bloom in the spring--a visual treasure trove!!
Thank you, again,
Hugs, m
