Charming Downtown Getaway
Just a few blocks from downtown. This is the master bedroom which has a queen sized bed and private bathroom (with a two person shower) in a beautiful house. You will have full access to a gourmet kitchen. Breakfast is on your own, but I do provide Starbucks instant via coffee, milk, and granola.
If you have a larger group, I have two additional rooms that are also available to rent for a maximum of four people. 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.
Gourmet kitchen and beautiful backyard.
All I can say is that Sky is amazing. She has an absolutely gorgeous home. Sky made is so comfortable for us and followed up to make sure that we were enjoying our stay. The home is in a perfect location close to downtown. We stayed in the Master Bedroom which was perfectly appointed and included a huge bathroom. Has a great stay and plan to return again! THANK YOU SKY!
My girlfriend and I had a very warming experience staying in the master bed room in Sky's home. Her home is very welcoming with beautiful photography and vibrant art. A very eye catching and an uplifting environment to be in. Our room had lots of room for 2 people, a big screen TV and a bathroom with a very large shower. Her home is conveniently located near downtown SLO with lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. If we find ourselves back in the area we'd love to stay here again.
Sky was incredibly welcoming and warm. The house and room were just as described, and location was perfect for the walks into downtown that we wanted to do, as well as the drives up to vineyards in Paso Robles. Excellent weekend spent here.
I made a last minute reservation (the night before) and even though Sky wasn't in town at the time, she made sure that I was able to enter the house easily, gave me super helpful instructions on everything I might need. She even called to make sure that I was comfortable! The neighborhood is quiet, pretty, convenient, felt super safe and I was able to park my car in the driveway. I ended up having the house all to myself and it is a beautiful place! Newly remodeled, all the furnishings are modern and very clean. TVs in every room and had netflix as well. Honestly, couldn't ask for more. Thanks for making my stay wonderful Sky!
