About This Listing
City vat taxes (10%) will be collected upon arrival.
Our pricing is based on beds/rooms used. Each room is $85 if using one bed (all are doubles). Additional people are $15 each if using the same room. If you state your needs (beds and rooms needed) when contacting us we can reduce the flurry of emails!
Camping with your own gear is $25/person or $35/couple.
Rustic and clean resource conscious home with bohemian ambience. One of a kind place full of collectibles and custom constructions/furnishings and a semi wild garden. One shared bathroom with stainless steel shower, custom tiled floor and antique fixtures.
All our beds are slightly unconventional (roughly 50" X 72"), either foam pads or futon pads. They are harder than the usual set ups but the vast majority of guests find them to be just fine. If you must have conventional beds then I urge you to use any of our many other airbnb accommodations in SLO.
We are a short walk to cafes, sandwich shops, the train station and the heart of town.
There is a small archery range, bbq set up, many decks and patios to hang out on if desired. Splendid view of the town and our famous Seven Sisters mountain range to the west. We have a small hiking hill just outside the back fence.
Wine tasting, beaches, hiking (one popular hike is right outside our back gate!) and boating available as well as many musical, cultural and artistic events throughout the year.
Share your stay here with two small marvelous dogs and a cat. We welcome your well mannered animal companions but hope you will manage them. We welcome kids of all ages as well.
I stress our passion for conservation, we hope our guests will be thoughtful when using our facilities. If we waste resources what will the next generations have?
Public transit 3 blocks away.

The city is now charging airbnb guests 10% VAT (temporary residents tax). Be cool if you can pay your host that upon arrival.
Conservation is very important here, especially with water use. Be very thrifty please.
Ask if you need towels or anything else, we aim to please.
Our bathroom door is always left wide open unless the room is occupied.
Male guests are heartily invited to use the 'great outdoors' for 'lightweight' bathroom use. Just be discrete.
Pete was gracious enough to pick me up at the local airport and let me use his bike while in town. I LOVE the little backyard room with windows on every side and a lovely view. Pete runs a tidy ship and his house is very clean. I appreciate that his commitment to conservation, limiting water usage and recycling -all apparent in his art work throughout the property and the house. He encourages his guests to be mindful of these things as well. Overall Pete's house is a lovely, not-boring environment, what one might call a "gem".
Pete was a great host to us and our son - he's so much fun! Our five-year old really enjoyed the stay, and we liked checking out Pete's interesting house, garden and all the artist materials/supplies in the yard. Simple and colorful accommodations, staying works as he describes it in his description, so definitely read the that because it's complete and covers what makes this an interesting and somewhat quirky stay. For example, our 5-year old really appreciated the chance to pee in the garden and help with water conservation. Pete was great about welcoming us into his home, pointing out what we needed to watch out for with a five-year old, yet creating a very relaxed environment. We only stayed for one night on our way through town, but we appreciated it!
Pete was so welcoming, warm and accommodating. His property was beautiful and unique, and his kind heart was just what I needed. I arrived late and had to leave early so I was unable to get to know Pete as much as I would have liked, but I truly enjoyed my brief stay and would loved to get a chance to visit him and his incredible home again.

About the Host, Pete
Socially liberal, blue collar person with intense love for most dogs and other critters. Somewhat travelled (Europe, Mexico, Japan), speak a little Spanish and Japanese. Passionate conservationist, artist, sort of jack of some trades.
I am pretty much a vegetarian and have simple culinary tastes. I get a lot of joy working my land and doing artistic projects.
