We find that the best fit for our rental is guests that want to experience what it is like to live in San Luis Obispo rather than someone that is looking for a 5 star hotel experience.
We look for guests that respect other peoples property and belongings as if they were their own. Fortunately that has always been the case with our house in SLO.
Except for our challenging short but steep driveway, SLO is a bicycle friendly community.

WHY COME TO SAN LUIS OBISPO???
Founded in 1772 as a mission community, San Luis Obispo is one of the oldest towns in California. Nicknamed “SLO,” it’s located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles and has a thriving downtown. Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa is its centerpiece. It was the original mission of the city, and has been completely restored and now houses a museum. Near the mission, you can wander through posh boutique shops and dine at upscale restaurants.
San Luis Obispo is almost perpetually sunny, with more than 300 rain-free days every year. The city is bisected by a string of hills known as the Nine Sisters, and six of these are open for climbing, hiking, and mountain biking. And with the Pacific coastline and beaches 10 miles away, people flock here to go windsurfing, kayaking, surfing, and kiteboarding. Also nearby is the resort town of Avila Beach, famous for its hot mineral springs.
San Luis Obispo made international headlines in 1990 when it became the first place in the world to ban smoking in all public buildings, including bars and restaurants. This action sparked worldwide antismoking laws, and today, it’s a citable offense to smoke in public at all in SLO. Shoppers must bring their own shoping bags since plastic bags were banned in 2012. Considering the city’s famously strict health codes, it’s a delightful surprise that Bubble Gum Alley exists here. Locals and visitors have been sticking their chewed gum on Bubble Gum Alley’s walls since about 1960, and in turn, the alley is now a massive, mosaic-like public artwork that is at once beautiful and grotesque.
Air Transportation: Scheduled air service, United Express, Delta, and US Air is 5 miles away at the San Luis Obispo County Airport.
