Beautifully renovated 100 year old home in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo. Walking distance to downtown, very private rooms, access to a gourmet kitchen and beautiful backyard.
Charming Downtown Getaway
Just a few blocks from downtown. One room with a queen sized bed and private bathroom in a beautiful house. This is the only bedroom downstairs, so it is very private. You will have full access to a gourmet kitchen. Breakfast is on your own. If you have a larger group, I have two additional rooms that are also available to rent. No pets and non smokers only please!
The house was recently on the distinguished home tour of San Luis Obispo through the Rotary Club. Here is an excerpt from the local paper about the house:
"Sky purchased her 1904 American Foursquare home four years ago. After years of being used as a triplex rental, it was badly in need of improvements. She knew there would be constraints in remodeling the exterior of the historic home. “We had to work with a boxy building, but we used a lot of curves inside to make it feel really organic,” she said.
Bergman, who is a photographer and chairperson of the Cal Poly Department of Art and Design, worked with her friend, Italian-born architect Enrica Lovaglio Costello, to reinvent the interior in a light, airy, contemporary style. They used curves whenever possible — in the contours of the kitchen island, in doorway arches, and rounded corners. Furnishings and decor were kept simple and spare, a complement to the home’s straightforward architecture.
The seven-month remodel was capped off by installing water-efficient landscaping such as succulents, integrated with edibles like sun-loving artichoke plants."

Non smokers only and no small children!
"I am a member of SLOHosts, the group who worked together to keep short-term rentals available here in San Luis Obispo last fall. I now pay a 10% TOT (room tax) to the city in addition to state and federal income taxes. " This is included in the price.

My daughter and I were visiting local Cal Poly and were so fortunate to have been able to stay at Sky's place. We were very comfortable with the accommodations and the whole process. Sky is a pro host who knows how to deliver an exceptional experience.
Sky has a lovely home and is a fantastic host!! I can't say enough. This is what AirBNB is all about. This place is gorgeous and is within walking distance of downtown. Book it. You won't regret it.
Sky was an exceptional host! She was accommodating, responsive, flexible, and genuine. She made us feel truly free and welcome within her home, which was as clean and tastefully decorated as it appeared in the photos. She went out of her way to help us on several occasions -- offered to drive us, provided recommendations, etc -- while respecting our independence and allowing us our privacy. I would, most definitely, recommend her and her home to anyone.
Overall we had a wonderful time staying at sky's place. Sky was a wonderful host and made us feel welcome even before arriving. The house was spacious, clean, modern, and had an impressive kitchen that unfortunately we did not get to use as time did not allow. We loved the double headed shower in the master bedroom and the ridiculously soft bed. The property is within walking distance of some awesome eateries in downtown which was a huge plus. Would highly recommend this property.
Sky was the perfect host. Providing us with everything we needed and making us feel at home, yet allowing us our privacy.
This home is absolutely beautiful and Sky went above and beyond our expectations to make us feel welcome and ensure that we had everything we needed. We stayed in the master bedroom upstairs which has an adjoining newly re-done master bathroom and dual-headed walk-in shower! The home is within a few blocks to a local brewery (Central Coast Brewing) and wine bar, and only a half dozen blocks to the main shopping area in downtown. The neighborhood, and specifically the surrounding homes, are also beautiful and Sky's home fits right in. Next time we come to SLO we will definitely stay here again!
I can't say enough nice things about Sky, the room, and her home. I can honestly say this was the best guest expereinces I've ever had.The room is beautiful, as is the huge bathroom attached. The pillow-top bed is incredibly comfortable! The kitchen and main areas are fully equipped with the best of everything. Most importantly, Sky is the perfect host; making you feel comfortable, and making sure she's available for questions or help when you need it. She's paid close attention to detail in every aspect, and it comes through in the entire experience. Very close to dowtown, but in an established neighborhood, you are within walking distance of many great restaurants, a grocery store, and anything else you may need.
