We have turned our attached two car garage into a beautiful, 370sq ft, private studio unit. The tastefully decorated unit has it's own private entrance, kitchenette (including a full size fridge, all utensils, microwave, George Foreman, cafetiere), bathroom with shower, queen size bed, fold out table that seats four and wrought iron bistro table and chairs outside the entrance for enjoying breakfast or a glass of wine. I'll leave some coffee and creamers out so you get your morning caffeine hit! The unit also has air conditioning.
There is an older, large screen tv and dvd player and a good selection of dvd's plus books for your enjoyment plus Wifi access. Two comfy recliners and a 2 seater couch are yours to relax on plus there's a sound machine with various relaxing sounds (thunder, rain, ocean etc) to help you sleep peacefully. We can provide an airbed or twin mattress if necessary for children. Towels and sheets provided. Hairdryer provided. The garage door is hidden by drapes as seen in the photos.
We also have another bedroom available in our house but right across the hall from the studio. It is on the other side of the house from us and there is a door between both sides for privacy. My husband simply goes to his office and works in there all day. Your bathroom in that half of the house would be all yours. The room has two twin beds plus a trundle. It is $60 per night and $20 if you want to use the trundle. I will have this room listed separately shortly.
We live in a beautiful, quiet cul de sac approximately 1.5 (Fremont Theater) - 2 (Mission Plaza) miles from downtown SLO. You can walk or take the bus which stops a short walk from our house and enjoy the great restaurants, shops, coffee houses and our famous Thursday night Farmer's market. The beach is 10 minutes away and we are close to Pismo Beach, Cambria, Hearst Castle, a plethora of vineyards and are mid way between San Francisco and LA.
When inquiring please tell us a little about yourself and why you are visiting SLO.
The studio was perfect for me and my wife and 9yr old son. Room was very cozy,comfortable,quiet and had everything we needed while we were in SLO for the week. Definetly would recommend this to a couple or small family. Thanks Fiona for your hospitality. Look forward to seeing you guys in the future.
Staying at Fiona's place was an incredible experience. She is by far the best host I've ever met. She was not only a wonderful host but she is indeed the most caring human being. our stay was delightful and adventurous. In every step of the way Fiona was there to assist us with all our needs. The studio was clean, spacious and well decorated. It was an extension of our home. I not only recommend staying in her place, I think she would win a gold award if Airbnb does ever offer the best hosts award.Thanks Fiona for being such a wonderful person.
Fiona was wonderful to meet. She was responsive during the booking process and extremely helpful while we were there. Upon arrival she even had a few special treats waiting for us.
The studio is well priced for the amenities, private entrance, a large space, a fridge, electric kettle and coffee press.
I also enjoyed going through her "things to do in the area" folder. We've been to SLO plenty of times, but we picked up some new ideas.
I had a lovely stay at Fiona's Studio. Really friendly and helpfull people who respect your privacy and are there for tips.
I was there first guest so there where some minor details that needed attention, lock and towels. For the rest I can really recommend this studio!
