Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent six nights in Jeff and Pam's lovely cottage. It is located in a residential neighborhood off a main road and is a very quiet retreat. There are two pleasant places to sit outside in the well-maintained gardens. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is large for a rental this size. The washer and dryer were much appreciated additions! We would happily stay here again.

Sweet, Comfortable and Clean

  • 5 of 5

We loved this VRBO! Really couldn't ask for anything better in SLO for a couple. King size bed ... sooooooo comfortable. Everything you need. Gorgeous flowers surround the grounds. Truly a vacation hideaway. Thanks for all the details!

Cute and cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5

Clean and well-kept cottage in a relatively central location in SLO. We let Pam and Jeff know we were arriving late (~10pm) on Thursday night and there was no issue getting in and settled.

Overall we had a great time and enjoyed the stay, with the only (minor) complaint being the lack of space between the bed and the bedroom door.

We were a few minutes behind schedule with checking out due to a prolonged breakfast on Sunday, so Pam called shortly after 11am reminding us of the checkout time and letting us know that a cleaning crew was already there.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We are looking for a "barn door" style door to replace that door, it is a little awkward. Thanks for coming right away to check out. Pam

Beautiful Outdoor Setting, Privacy, Quiet Area, Charming Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful outdoor setting, privacy and quiet area in this charming cottage. Comfortable king size bed, large clean shower, 25 minute walk to downtown, and great hosts! We loved this place! One suggestion would be to replace the futon with a regular couch for more sitting comfort, especially for longer rental periods.

Owner's Response: Thanks Eric, we have something in the works, a very nice couch and chair, it will be much more comfortable, we changed our maximum number of people who can stay to 3, so the couch with the back cuchions of is a long twin bed.

Small, but clean and quaint

  • 5 of 5

This rental is on a quiet street in SLO but close to everything. Quick access to downtown, the beach and lots of central coast attractions. The house has everything you need to make a home base! Plus an adorable private patio! We would recommend!

This was a great place to stay and so peaceful. It's so nice to be close to downtown SLO and have a place to come back to. My wife and I were celebrating Valentines Day and we had a great weekend and stay! We will be back one day and look forward to staying here again!
