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."

Absolutely fantastic place to stay. The house is a historical home just outside of the downtown area of SLO. The interior is amazingly renovated with a great guest room and bathrooms. The shower is great because it has two shower heads so finally both your front and back can be warm at the same time. The kitchen is great to cook in and the owner is a delight. We talked with Sky in the morning and she is a great host and very entertaining. Overall 10/10, would stay again.
We would definitely come to stay at Sky's lovely home again if we were to come back to SLO.The location is fantastic, within walking distance to downtown, and less than 5 minutes to Cal Poly. The house is spotless, Sky gave us great advice for things to do, in and out of town, (not to mention a referral to a great mechanic).
Thanks again Sky! A+
Sky was out of the house for most of our stay because of prior commitments, but she made sure that the house was ready for us. The house is incredible! It was perfectly clean, an amazing location, and so comfortable! We loved our visit, and Sky was such a wonderful host.
Really glad I chose to stay with Sky! Her home is beautiful and so comfortable. The location was perfect for walking anywhere in town, and meeting up with my Cal Poly son. Sky was the perfect host - helpful, charming, and such an interesting person. It was worth staying there just to get a chance to meet her! I would definitely stay with her again.
What a lovely home Sky has! The location is perfect. Although we never got to meet Sky (we were in town very briefly to see friends), she was very considerate in wanting our experience to be lovely, and we traded notes back and forth. The house is in a wonderful and very quiet neighborhood, and the bed is extremely comfortable! My husband is often in SLO for work, but it was so nice on this trip not to be in a hotel. We would definitely stay again.
Sky was the perfect host. And her house is amazing. Beautifully remodeled, spacious, clean, and accommodating. My girlfriend and I stayed for two nights and loved the location of the house. Just a ten minute stroll to downtown SLO. Next time I visit, I will be contacting Sky. Thanks!!
This house is amazing! When I walked in, it felt so inviting, comfortable and peaceful. The interior design is open and very well balanced. The kitchen was a joy. I cooked a couple of meals and the layout and appliances superb. The living room felt part art gallery and very calming. I spent my evenings reading and falling asleep in the chain.The bed and comforter are very comfy and sprinkled with sleeping sand. The bathrooms are spacious and sport modern fixtures. The location is ideal. A 10 minute stroll puts you in the heart of downtown SLO with its great restaurants. I did not get to enjoy the spacious backyard (rained a bit during my visit) but it'd be a great place to kickback and enjoy the clean air. I definitely will book in the future!
Sky's home is beautiful, clean and serene, located in a historic district and walking distance from downtown SLO. I can't imagine a nicer place to stay to experience this lovely city, or a more welcoming host.
Sky's home was beautiful and very comfortable. I felt like I was staying in a hotel with the perks of being in a home. I was able to walk downtown no problem, and was a short drive to the university where I was attending a festival. Sky was a fabulous host, very communicative, and very friendly. I would definitely stay here again.
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Sky's. She has a wonderful home and the room was perfect for our two night stay, we had plenty of privacy too. The bathroom was excellent and clean, as were the bed, towels and sheets. The house is located in the perfect place, allowing us to walk downtown most of the time. We will definitely want to stay here again in the future. Reserve with out hesitation :)
