SLOStudioLoft with Pool & Slide, Piano, Kitchen, WiFi, Satellite TV, DVD, and BBQ. Enjoy a full breakfast (included) in the privacy of your StudioLoft or on the sunny pool-side patio! Sleeps up to 6 comfortably on 3 queen beds.
The pool is getting warmer, and the springtime here in San Luis Obispo is beautiful, with green rolling mountains surrounding our town. Price includes full complimentary breakfast for you and your guests to make in the privacy of your secluded StudioLoft.
Located just 4 minutes from downtown San Luis Obispo, California, half-way between San Francisco to the north, and Los Angeles to the south. We are at the southern tip of the world-famous Big Sur Coastline, with Carmel-by-the-Sea about three hours to the north. The StudioLoft is surrounded by trees in a quiet residential neighborhood with a newly renovated swimming pool and travertine patio. There is a grass lined seasonal creek in the rear of the property under sycamore and pepper trees. When you arrive you will be greeted with a complimentary bottle of chardonnay or cold beer in the fridge. We provide food for your breakfast (often including homemade coffee cake) and you can "french press" freshly ground SLO-roasted coffee in the morning to start your day off right! Our private StudioLoft has been recently renovated providing you, our guest, all the amenities you may need to enjoy an intimate dining experience, both indoors, and on the natural stone patio by the pool. The StudioLoft is equipped with a kitchenette, bar, dining area, computer, flat screen satellite TV, and beautiful piano. The kitchenette (see photos) includes a 2-burner gas stove, mini fridge, counter-top convection oven, and a microwave. It is well stocked with everything you need to cook a meal including dishes, glassware, silverware, pots and pans, bowls, and cooking utensils. The loft above (w/ ladder access) sleeps two in a double-size bed (with 4" memory foam), and down below, the couch converts to a queen size bed (also with 4" memory foam) and sleeps 2 more comfortably (see photos). Our outdoor propane grill is available for pool-side, summer-time, or any-time BBQ's. Rate does not include 10% San Luis Obispo Bed Tax.
***We have a Queen Aerobed with linen, pillows, comforters and towels available for extra guests to accommodate two, if you like closeness (and/or additional sleeping pads)
The newly redesigned and upgraded bathroom, shower & laundry room, are accessed by a doorway for your private use. (We sometimes share the laundry, accessed by an outer door for your privacy.) Our travertine stone patio winds around the pool and opens out through a gated lawn-banked seasonal creek. All outdoor area is available to you during your stay. Our friendly, family golden retriever "Sadie" may want to play with you, but just close the blinds. She'll get the hint.
The StudioLoft is easily accessed through a redwood gate on the right side of the private residence driveway, along a well-lit pathway to your separate entrance facing the pool (see photos). Our guests enjoy the sun-warmed pool in the summer (May-September), and also enjoy sunbathing on the patio lounge furniture throughout the year. The gated and fenced creek-side lawn area is a safe place for your non-barking dog to roam. Laundry facilities available (water cost = $4/load) please be conscious of our SLO water shortage and California drought. We are available to make your stay as comfortable as possible; please, let us know in advance if you have any special requests.
Interaction with Guests
Your privacy is important to us during your stay, and therefore we will provide you with a "pre-visit" email list of "what-to-do" and "where-to-go" in SLO that may be helpful in planning your activities and making reservations as desired. When you arrive you'll find a "Concierge" booklet describing some of our favorite Bars, Beaches, Restaurants, Galleries and Wineries, and Trips and Trails, as a resource for your convenience during your stay, including brochures to review, along with a section for your comments for future Airbnb guests!
Our quiet neighborhood is on a cul-de-sac, therefore minimal car traffic is rarely heard. In the mornings you can hear the birds singing in the trees surrounding the property. Our neighbors are out walking their pets at all hours, and there is never a concern for safety. This is an exceptionally quiet, secluded, upscale residential neighborhood including young families with children, as well as older, retired couples who built their own homes 30+ years ago.
We're near Southwood Drive and Johnson Avenue. Uber came to town recently and our guests love the local safe and friendly drivers for quick trips downtown for dinner or "bar-hopping."
Our local city bus transit is a 4 minute walk 4 blocks to the corner #1 Bus Stop- SLO City Transit, which takes you to the Downtown City Center, approximately a 10 minute bus-ride. Here transfers are available by bus to the Amtrak Station, all over SLO, Cal Poly, and San Luis Obispo County, including Hearst Castle if desired. SLO Airport is a 7 minute Cab Ride. Transportation available online:
San Luis Obispo Regional Transit Authority
Amtrak Coast Starlight - Seattle - Los Angeles
Pacific Coast Surfliner San Luis Obispo - Santa Barbara - Los Angeles - San Diego
Other Things to Note
NOTE: SLO 10% Bed Tax is not included in the online fees and will be collected upon your arrival. We have recently spent a lot of love-filled energy and time remodeling and renovating our home to improve the comfort and beauty we have come to enjoy. We hope you will come visit and relax here in SLO for a day or more so that you too can appreciate some of the beauty that surrounds us here on the Central Coast: Beaches, hiking trails, biking trails, downtown boutique shopping, wine-tasting, music festivals, film festivals, and so much more! Our rates are generally lower in the winter and spring, and as the summer sun warms our new pool, we hope you'll enjoy using it during your stay! So please enjoy swimming in front of your own secluded Studio Loft May through September. We will provide simple instructions on removing the Solar Blanket before swimming. Have fun, but please, keep your pets out of the pool for their safety. And remember- NO LIFEGUARD ON DUTY, unless, of course you are one!
We do NOT allow smokers inside our home, and greatly appreciate your compliance with this request. General courtesy is the "unwritten rule," as is pretty much true for anytime our lives impact others. We would love to meet your pup, if you decide to bring her along with you, but please keep pets off of the furniture, or use our large "Pet Protector" sheet to cover the couch upon your arrival to the Studio Loft. *There is a one-time $25 cleaning fee for pets. When booking, please include your pet as an extra guest as well ($15/night) or pay upon arrival (honor system- and we trust you).
Ryan and Family
Thanks for a great stay! We loved the coffee and easy access to downtown San Luis Obispo. Hope to stay at your spot again soon!
Our stay in San Luis Obispo was pleasant. We interacted with Carla who was very kind. She left us with a plate of cookies, eggs, organic milk, coffee and other breakfast products. She made up an extra bed as there were five of us. The space is small for five, but we knew we would be in close quarters from the advertisement and this was fine for one night. Despite the small space we were quite comfortable (all beds were comfortable, as was the shower and we paid a small amount to run a load of laundry). We also enjoyed meeting Carla's very sweet and friendly dog.
What a wonderful experience. The loft was brilliantly presented, Carla was lovely and everything went without a hitch. We were just passing through but would have been thrilled to have stayed longer. Highly recommended!
This property is exactly as the photos depict. Very quiet neighborhood. Very nice, neat and clean. A lot of nice tile work, and plush carpeting throughout. Carla and Ryan have thought of all of the necessities, which made our stay so comfortable. The 'fridge was well stocked with breakfast items to cook, and there were a lot of little extras, like filtered water, and beer! The property is close to town, which made it convenient to get around. We would stay here again.
Great accommodation for 4-6 people.
- The 2 beds are quiet comfortable to sleep in. We have our 3 yo daughter with us and she slept well so that's a good indication.
- Breakfast and other food that Carla stocked helped a lot since we arrived late - eggs, pancake mix, milk, beers, bread and all the different spreads. Amazing.
- Carla was a great host. Accommodated all our needs (and even added extras).
We'll definitely stay again if given a chance.
Host - Ryan was not at home so Carla was taking care of us. She's very helpful and answered our questions in time. Knowing we are Chinese, she even prepared a Chinese version of renter's manual using (website hidden) translate. So if you are coming from foreign country, this could be very helpful.
Room - The location was quiet. The room was cozy and clean. Shower and toilet was separated so they can be used in the same time, which was convenient as everybody was using them in the morning.
We had a wonderful stay at the loft. Quiet, comfortable and private. Carla was a gracious host and has done a fantastic job setting up everything you would ever need for staying in OR going out. Thanks!
I am a recent Cinematography Grad of SFSU and plan on traveling throughout the US and possibly Europe, utilizing Airbnb when possible, while developing my film career. Our permanent address is SLO where my sister and I were born and grew up. My mom lives in our family home with our Golden, Sadie, and cat, and she enjoys traveling abroad. We offer our guest "Studio Loft," which was designed as a private studio apartment with kitchen and bathroom, and includes all the amenities you'll need to assure your visit to SLO is a memorable one. Hopefully, you too will discover why San Luis Obispo is called the "Happiest Place in America."
We've put together a list of our favorite things to do for all ages and abilities, from "the Best Wineries for locally grown Cabernet, Pinot, Zins, and Chardonnay," to various hiking trails, beaches, state parks, places and events you'll want to see, and our favorite restaurants, bars, music, and much more. All of the information you might need is available to you on the iMac (including a nice selection of music on iTunes). Upon your arrival, we invite you to enjoy a complimentary bottle of wine or a few beers, and in the morning you'll start your day with breakfast provided for you in the fridge, including delicious SLO brewed coffee. If my mom's around, she'll make sure your stay is great. So if I miss you when you come to town, enjoy yourselves and "We'll leave the light on for you."
