Classic California Bungalow Duplex

Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

San Luis Obispo is a picturesque town nestled in between rolling hills where cattle graze. Activities are plentiful with beaches, hiking, surfing, craft beer and wine tasting, shopping, spa-ing, cycling, movie theaters, golfing....something for everyone!

Located in "Uptown" SLO, you'll be in walking distance of EVERYTHING. Coffee shops, antique shops, restaurants, Cal Poly, The Mission, body spas & salons and downtown shops are all a short jaunt or you can wait at a nearby stop for the trolley to be your personal taxi around our quaint town.

The bungalow:

This charming California Bungalow is spacious at 900 sq.ft. with a custom remodeled bath and bedroom. Bathroom has a tub and shower and is stocked with spa quality amenities. Bedroom has a handmade Cal King bed frame, comfortable mattress and all cotton bedding for the most comfort! Craftsman style cabinetry provides plenty of storage for any length stay. Stainless refrigerator and dishwasher add modern comforts in this classic kitchen that is fully stocked for all your cooking needs. A stackable washer/dryer is located in the laundry room to make you feel at home on your longer stays. Off street parking is available for a second vehicle.

Upon arrival:

Guests will find the lockbox through the gate on the "driveway side" of the house. We have a spacious gated patio in the front of the house that guest's are welcome to use. There is a back patio where the cars are parked that we prefer to keep private.

Interaction with guests:

We live here at the house so may run into you on the property however we tend to let our guests be and encourage them to feel at home during their stay. If you would like to actually visit with us, we are happy to meet you out on the patio for a nice beverage.

The neighborhood:

We live in a very urban part of SLOtown. There is a lot of pedestrian/auto activity as we are surrounded by restaurants, coffee shops, and schools. It's very conveniently located and the neighborhood is alive!

Getting around:

We are about a 10-15 minute walk in different directions to the downtown "core", Cal Poly, and the train station.

The trolley and bus stops are very near by.

The airport is about 10 miles away.

If you drive, please be aware that this house is nearly 100 years old and the driveway is very narrow. If you have a larger vehicle or one that is very low, you may prefer to park on the street. There is ONE parking space allowed on the premise. Any additional vehicles please find plenty of free parking on the street.

About juli platzer

My husband and I have lived in San Luis Obispo for a number of years, building our businesses here and making it our home. We enjoy renovating this 1928 bungalow that we live in and rent out the other half to visiting folks like yourself. We love this area of the Central Coast for it's simpleness, quiet scenery and magnificent coastline. For being such a small town, I am ever amazed at how many things there are to do around here!

juli platzer purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why juli platzer chose Central Coast California

We fell in love with this house for many reasons... classic design, sturdy construction, location!

What makes this bungalow unique

Being in the business of home design and construction, my husband and I saw the potential in this house. Code words for fixer upper! We have and continue to renovate it to our own liking, enhancing the craftsman/spanish style while adding the modern conveniences that make it a joy to live in.

The Monterey Street House is clean, classic and comfortable for your stay here in San Luis Obispo. Again, the location can not be beat for easy walking/biking access to Cal Poly, Downtown SLO, and freeway access.

Very cute, but noisy

  • 3 of 5

We really did enjoy staying there. The bed was fine, but the pillows were a bit thin. We went out and bought our own pillows and we recommend you bring your own. The house is very large and roomy. It's clean and has what you need for your stay and well stocked with the basics. The only issue we had was the traffic noise. Monteray Street is a busy street. There are businesses all around the property. Delivery trucks start unloading at 5:00 am and they are not quiet. The garbage is picked up at 5:30 on Saturday's. It does quiet down around 10pm and starts up again at 5:00 am Monday's through Fridays. Saturdays is also busy. Sunday's were quiet. There is a great coffee place next door and a couple of eating establishments.

The residence suited our purposes, but if your looking for a quiet place to stay, I would not recommend it.

Charming and Convenient Duplex

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (2 adults and 2 children) enjoyed our 10 day stay in the charming bungalow. It was clean, spacious and well-appointed. We had everything we needed to prepare meals, however, there are restaurants very close by so we hardly cooked. We walked to the coffee shop next door every morning and the Farmer's Market on Thursday evening. We also had the pleasure of meeting Andrew and Juli towards the end of our stay. They were friendly and welcoming. Juli was responsive and very easy to communicate with. I highly recommend this duplex!

Perfect, cozy home with great layout

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this spot! The floor plan inside has so much character, which my fiancé and I were a huge fan of. Great location - directly next door to an awesome coffee shop, only a few minute drive to downtown and short drive to the beach. We loved the modern updates throughout the home and felt very comfortable. House was clean and had everything we needed to cook dinner as well. Juli was also very helpful and informative. We're already looking forward to returning!

San Luis Obispo has a lot to offer for such a small town. We have a lot of visitors for the Cal Poly University that is right up the street from this rental, definitely in walking distance. Downtown SLO has one of the biggest farmer's markets in the US every Thursday night. There is a trolley pick up right across the street that will take you right into the heart of Downtown and bring you back. The mission is an active church open to the public with a small museum that is must see for California history. SLO also has a very cool Children's Museum that will entertain any little ones for hours, as well as their parents. Of course there are lots of cute boutiques and restaurants to enjoy.

We are down the road from Paso Robles wine country where there are tours galore! Please inquire about tour buses that will pick you up here and bring you back for worry free wine tasting!

We also are very close to the ocean. Avila and Pismo Beach are about a 15 minute drive on the 101 South. Morro Bay and Cayucos are equal distance from here on Hwy 1 North.
